Not that many seasons back that Huddersfield got promoted with a minus goal difference.

That was the target LJ set.

90 goals in a season can be done by City. Looking at the goals between 1961 and 1965, that must have been an entertaining team to watch.

1905-06 38 games = 83 goals plus 1 FA cup    Promoted

1926-27 42 games = 104 goals plus 3 FA cup

1946-47 42 games = 94 goals plus 10 FA cup

1954-55 46 games = 101 goals plus 1 FA cup    Promoted

1961-62 46 games = 94 goals plus 15 FA cup

1962-63 46 games = 100 goals plus 10 FA & League cup

1964-65 46 games = 92 games plus 6 FA & League cup    Promoted

1989-90 46 games = 76 goals plus 15 FA & League cup    Promoted

2014-15 46 games = 96 goals plus 6 FA & League cup    Promoted

2014-15 46 games = 96 goals plus 6 FA & League cup    Promoted

So 110 total in 62/63 is our record? Looking it up we conceded 92 in the league! So scored 100 but finished with GD of only +8. Must be a few on here who saw those going in.

Having scored 10 in the two cups that season, we conceded 9. That was an  entertaining season.

On the other hand the 1975-76 team that got into Div 1 scored just 59 goals plus 2 in the two cups.

Unfortunately for me, I missed the first three occasions.

But enjoyed all the others.

It’s a great target. 90 goals pretty much guarantees promotion & even if you miss the target by 10 there is still a really good chance of a successful season. Set the bar high & go for it! We’re on our way.

Makes sense aim for 90 and if we fall short by 20% were still in promotion/top 6 goals for territory.

I’m surprised there isn’t a sizeable promotion bonuses as play given the figures involved. 

I'm pretty sure I've heard a few time on here from some of those closer to the club that the plyers and coaching staff all automatically double their wages if we're promoted. I'm sure there's some lump sum bonuses available as well.

So no negative goal difference this season then?

Generally the 2-3 teams with the best defensive records get promoted, rather than the highest scorers, although often the two go together.
 

We actually scored a reasonable number of goals last season, but we also let in way too many.

What this target says to me is that the players will be encouraged to continue attacking even when the match is ‘ won ‘ .

No more ‘2 nil and batten down the hatches ‘ with twenty minutes to go but keep hurting the opposition when it’s safe to do so. 

Entertainment , not boring the life out of the supporters time wasting .

No more?  When did we get 2-0 up with 20 to go?  Not very often 😂😂😂

Could lead to a glut of your SBO as sales should plummet with those tactics.

Remember the 62/63 season well. Group of us used to go & pass around the fags. We decided to cut down & only have one when a goal was scored.

Result Bristol City 6 Southend United 3!

I have since seen the error of my ways & given up smoking only problem put on 5 stones in weight!

Well they're on target to exceed that at the moment....just the matter of 44 more games to go!

Only forty two games to go now. Two goals in each League game plus six goals in three LC games. 👍

There must be some science to how they've come up with that, perhaps a target of scoring 2 a game?

Your wish is their command! 👍
