And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

Just wondered in the long distinguished history of Tooting And Mitcham what has been the longest previous spell of starting a league campaign and either drawing or losing games until notching up a first league win ? Just interested!!! And not including cup games etc.

Re: And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

I should be working, but I found out that we started the 98/99 season much the same as this one with 3 draws and 4 defeats in the league (including a couple of hefty thrashings!).  And like this season we did get through the first qualifying round of the FA Cup.

But then Ashley Martin channelled his Harry Kane and scored 5 goals as we reeled off 4 wins on the bounce.

We ended the season in 8th.

Re: And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

Should we not be worried now. Sevens games in and no win, with Dorking, Thurrock and Brightlingsea all managing to win twice. It's only the fact Worthing are having a dodgey spell otherwise we would be bottom and rock bottom at that. Any expectations of playoff places are defiantly gone now.

Thanks endofthelane for the stats and anyone else who can shed more information on this thread. I have not started this thread as a doom merchant and was hoping that last nights fixture might have ended the win drought in the league.

I've asked Ian Bullock for you Mr Steptoe - if he doesn't know the answer to your question then no-one will.
Cheers

We're at home to Worthing on Saturday 7th October Mr Steptoe !  

Our next league game is away at Billericay

Re: And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

Not wishing to pee on your parade guys, but Worthing have just employed a new manager and we all know what that can do.   
Food for thought!

Re: And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

Woudn't it be good if we got our first three pointer against Billericay tomorrow !!!! I'm quietly optimistic.

One of the strangest seasons was 1985-86. We started with 4 straight defeats, then 2 draws, then 5 wins and a draw in the next 6. There followed a fairly typical mixed bag of results until the last 10 when we had 1 win (against Worthing!), 2 draws and 7 defeats. So 16 matches at the beginning and end of the season produced just 7 points.We finished 12th out of 22)..

Re: And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

Interesting stats Wetherby Mike !!! Lets hope this thread can end when we get our first Three pointer this season....the wait goes on. I would rather have the number of points instead of the number of players red carded so far this season !!!

Re: And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

In answer to the original query, I'm afraid that this is our worst ever start in terms of games without a victory.  I can only find 2 other seasons when we went 7 games without a win from the start of the season.

Re: And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

Thanks for researching endofthelane. All a bit sobering but can it all change in our next game ?

Re: And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

Hi Steptoe Jnr - I am remiss in that I did ask Ian Bullock about this and he did text me all the relavant info, which of course I managed to completely forget about ! DOH 

Anyway, here goes :--  (I quote)  "In season 1992-93 & 1998-99 Tooting won their first league match on the 8th game."

Hope that helps.

Re: And on the subject of drawing games in the league ...............

Thanks DeePee. Went to last nights debacle. If the team doesn't bounce back against Worthing this thread sadly might continue for a very long agonising time I fear.
