Im pretty sure we started the 2005/2006 season with a couple of wins and we were top early on.Hopefully the rest of the season will go as well as that did,but without the last day drama.
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:

I think the papers are taking into account goal difference to deduct this as our best start in 44 years lol. +5 as opposed to +6 in 44 (if my maths are right). Bit of a cheat but there you go.
Just hoping we stay focused and get maximum points from our next game. Would hate to see the team take their eye off the ball (so to speak) and mess up what has been a great start so far.
