Why are barnsley better than us?

As well as Barnsley have done this season and as bad as we’ve been they’ve only gained 5 more points than us. 
 

But they do at least have a plan in place as a club which is sustainable and something all there fans can get behind. Until they sell there next player then all there fans will be crying again.

Why dont we go and snaffle their coach/manager?

 

 

Take away our points deduction and you have the answer that they're not really - not that much

Relax

One day we'll have a different chairman and then we can be as big/good as Barnsley / Leeds United / Sheffield United again x

I can see a lot of teams in the Championship who think that they might be safe, but by the end are sucked into a relegation battle...

 


Definitely

Loads of games left - loads of time for it all to switch around

Surely they'd have to finish above us (and also by more than 6 points) at the end of the season for this statement to be relevant....

for a bit of context, Barnsley were relegated last season on the pitch and only stayed up due to Wigan points deduction.

Since we got rid of pulis, barnsley have gained 11 points, we have gained 15

If we keep up our run of results (even with the odd hick-up) we will be absolutely fine... I just wonder who will fall into the fight over the next few months....

They’re higher up the league than us at the moment, having had better results than us so far this season.

 

They weren’t “better” for the last few seasons and may not be better next season if they revert to type and sell off their best players over the summer.

I think they sign managers/players that actually suit their plans... 

I'd expect this statement if they were unbeaten and first in the table, but not for a mediocre (mid table) side (halfway into the season) that has had 1 good result...

What little money they have they invest in well scouted lower league players who they play, support and look after. 

 

Even when they had to sell most of their starting 11, due to this kind of mentality they quickly got back up and rebuilt cleverly.
