We’ll keep a running tally of how we are doing compared to Chris Hughton’s Championship winning side of seven years ago and at the moment we have exactly the same number of points after 22 games played – 49.
Chris got a fantastic 30 wins and 102 points back in 2010 to get us straight backup and we are on track right now to get exactly that same 102 points if we can keep up this pace for the rest of the season.
Maybe with Rafa saying the team is continuing to learn how to play in this division we could do even better but it looks like something like 90 points could be good enough this season to get an automatic promotion spot which is what we want.

And the sooner we can get that the better – to calm the nerves.
Bu it’s still all to play for and Rafa keeps everybody’s feet firmly on the ground, but he was pleased with the performance yesterday.
In his post-match interview on nufcTV he said the team’s mentality was quite good.
That’s something coming from Rafa, whose standards are sky-high.
