But the Blues, who sit 15th in the Vanarama Conference table, have shown a marked improvement from the side that was relegated on the final day of last season before gaining a reprieve at the expense of the now-defunct Hereford United.
Chester are currently 13 points above the drop zone and 10 points off the pace in the play-off race. The opening-day 5-0 humiliation at home to Barnet has not set the tone for the season so far, and Burr's men have registered a famous last-gasp win over rivals Wrexham and an FA Cup run where they claimed one Football League scalp (almost two) in a memorable run to the second round.
With all to play for in the second half of the season, we want you to have your say on how you think things have gone so far this term for Burr's charges. Who has impressed you? Who has been a disappointment? Where can the Blues go from here?
Here's your chance to have your say and let us know how the season has been viewed from those who have lived and breathed it - the fans.
We'll publish the results of the survey in The Chronicle in the new year.
