League tables don't really start to take shape until at least 15 games in in my book, and even then wild changes will occur. For example on the 31st of December 1999 we were 6th in Division One on 40 points, only 11 off top and 4 clear of Blackburn in 7th after 25 games.
At the end of that season we finished 17th having only gained 14 more points from 21 games, 22 points off 6th and 37 points off top. We only stayed up by 8 points.
