It's a bit early to start talking about tipping point games...and league positions are irrelevant at this stage of the season.

If I was offered a play off spot now though...I'd grab it with both hands.
I agree. Lots and lots can happen between now and the end of the season - as also a lot can happen between now and end of October, and November etc. etc. We have made a very good start and that is all that can be said up to this point. A lot of other teams would love to be in our position.
One defeat and four wins in the first six games? Most definitely.

Interesting that a national newspaper believes that...We can make top six but won't go further until we learn how to bully teams.

I see where they're coming from.

We don't bully teams but we get bullied. We can play the pretty football but can we mix it when the going gets tough?

You've got to have that physical edge to get out of this division these days

Correct.
You need players who are tough and fully fit. Players who, after an injury, are quickly back to full fitness.
The way it used to be under George Swindin. A fitness fanatic.
He would never have tolerated players who had to be mollycoddled.
Anybody who watches rugby league (especially Aussie rugby league) will know how tough and fit those players are.
Being happy never goes out of style

I am a big RL fan Tony but goodness me the relevance is lost on me in you banging on about it. :roll:

They are stronger than football players but overall no fitter, they are harder than footballers but no fitter. Neither could play the other sport. There may be some things to worry about with the present squad, fitness is not one of them. Players get injured, they require management on their return. Surely that is not difficult to understand.
btw George Swindin is dead.

Not wishing to get embroiled in an argument re fitness of different sportspeople. I'd just like to point out that most league one players after about 80 minutes are blowing out of their a&@e. Rugby players those that stay on for the full 80 minutes despite the buffeting they get, still run around like spring chickens.

Doubt we've ever had a fitter bunch of players.

Hhah, almost mentioned you in my post nipper.

Taff I can see as a fit lad. Got a touch of the gods about him but Hughes and Gwion? Must be the flicky hairstyle?

16 points from 7 games, no worries on the stats
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

I must say, one negative for me is the number of long balls we play

You know, when Glenn Hoddle did it, it was a brilliant pass, not a long ball.

It was, because more often that not he found the target he was aiming at, sadly you can't say the same for some of our hoofs upfield
