I know we are all enjoying the 'moment' so to speak.....but correct me if Im wrong but didnt we also spend a microsecond in top spot under Jol?
Also I read in one of todays papers that we had made our best start in 44 years!! Now that has to be absolute b*llox.no?......I cant be ar5ed to google our stats right now but I can recall better starts than this.....surely?
Anyone out there got the willpower to sort this out?
Good find that Old Fan.
E-Y - I'm just triple confirming your suspicion!
Now it says in match facts on here (Yahoo) that we have not won our first 3 in a row since the start of the Prem league...true or false...cue Old Fan.
If false, now would be a good place to start.

True - I was checking that as I was looking at the last time we won two in a row at the start of the season - there have been a few times when we haven't lost for more than 3-4 games (couple of draws thrown into the mix), but we haven't won three to start the season since the Prem started. Not sure about "ever" - as I didn't go back and check the stats since the club first formed.

On the money Mark - we beat Portsmouth and Middlesborough - both 2-0 (and Defoe scored in both games). We also won our first two in 94/95 (Sheffield Wednesday 4-3 and Everton 2-1), and in 80/81 (Notts Forest 2-0, and Crystal Palace 4-3), and in 72/73 (Coventry 2-1 and WBA 1-0), and then of course - the famous 65/66 season 44 years ago, when we beat Leicester City 4-2, and Blackpool 4-0!
Well - I didn't intend to go back all those years - and now I think I need to get a life!
For those interested - the best site I have found for stats and info about our club going back to day 1 - is:
