We had an even better start in 2020/21 with 3 straight 2-0 wins and were clear Top of the Table P3 W3 D0 L0 F9 A0 Pts 9.

Sadly we ended the season 9th.

Absolutely - and I agree with KM when he says that being top at this stage of the season means nothing.
Still, it's lovely to see, and hopefully we can maintain it over the whole season

i don't need to verify but this time in 1993 we won all three opening games (99 per cent sure) in the Premier League and only avoided relegation by one goal by the final game of season.

There's loads of examples if you got the time to include them. New Years Day 2005 (the) team were clear of all others in the Second League or whatever it were called back then, only to drop into a play-off position and miss out altogether. Spare a thought for Oldham Athletic for one moment, an opposition we played in Cup contest quite recent. Top of the old second division / league not all that long ago, went up as Champions : now playing out in non-league obscurity with Maidenhead and Eastleigh for opposition.

The point here is never accept things too early. Things can - and will - fall away and we're certainly no exception. I'll evaluate progress by say December, which in itself will provide a clearer indication of just what to expect by a business end of a season.
