Join DaveP, Ian, Mark & Neil from 8.30 AM in the build up to the release of the 22/23 Season fixtures at 9.00 AM.

When are the "big" matchdays, are some periods less testing than others, what is an acceptable points total by Matchday 16 when the season stops for the World Cup break?

We'll also discuss the summer transfer activity so far.

I'd be hoping for 20 minimum at that stage.

20 after 16 games is 1.25 points per game, so anything more than that is going to have us probably 14th or up, which with 1/3 of the season gone is totally fine. We won't have played everyone by that stage either so could be an inaccurate snapshot.

We had 19 after 16 games last season, and a whopping 27 the season before under Holden. Take from that what you will...I know which of those was my preferred season.

Exactly the figure I was going for. It equates to 57/8 for the season (cf 55 for last season), so a good basis to build on, if we can improve  after the WC. 1.5 per game would be nice though!

Somewhere between the two, i.e. 23, would be acceptable to the vast majority of the fanbase

Which, bizarrely, was also the top choice of our defence and GK last season

Just listened, both @NcnsBcfc & @Davefevs were excellent, though I was very disappointed that Neil didn’t go for the 3 year contract suggestion for Chris Martin 😲.

Good attempt to explain FFP that probably could have done with some editing to remove the confused interventions of the host, though.

Thanks Graham. 

I have to admit my brain got a bit confused by Dave P there.

I completely defer to @Davefevs on accountancy matters 😁
