    Given their league position I originally thought this a winnable fixture. However - when you look at their home form this is an excellent win. Not getting giddy yet - result against Brentford and I might. At the moment it would appear a certain amount of luck is on our side - with injuries forcing a change in style of play that is paying off at the moment.

    Think you could be right - seemed to be the formation we finished with midweek

    Rovers v Hull

    Though only a cameo - best we have seen from Brereton. He had amazing support from BE - but did wonder how much of that was ironic 😂. Good noise at times (esp second half) considering weather and turn out. Hull were average at best - but thought we put in a good performance. Though Armstrong got MOM - have to say Travis not far behind - and is getting better with each match.

    January transfer window 2020

    If he isn't going to sign players that will immediately challenge for the first team - I wouldn't bother. Would much prefer to see some youngsters given the opportunity.

    Just a shame they caused the mess in the first place. But credit where it is due - I thought they would have pulled the plug years ago.

    Anyone else think our lack of money is down to the Dack injury ? Selling him was our best chance of not coming foul of FFP - we are now in a financial hole with our only sellable asset being Lenihan.

    Brentford (h) - the Mowbray love in!

    We did well to beat 12 men. They looked a decent team - with the referee one of their better players

    Barnsley (h) - the Cauldron Of Hate part 2?

    Wow - what an outburst. During TM's time as manager - they bank rolled the biggest League 1 budget - and given him £12m to spend on two strikers - as well as continuing to pay the wages. They are responsible for our demise - however we only need to look to Bolton to see where we could easily be.

    Barnsley (h) - the Cauldron Of Hate part 2?

    To be fair to them - they have backed TM

    Barnsley (h) - the Cauldron Of Hate part 2?

    Type of performance that gets managers sacked. The win didn't cover up the inadequacies in the team - so many poor insipid performances - it was like half the team didn't turn up. Gallagher out wide - could see why at first - but when they got used to the long diagonal why persist ☹ - put the poor lad central. Special mention for Armstrong who was awful - how can somebody be caught off side so many times ? Final mention for TM - very grateful for everything he has done for the club - but this team is massively under achieving - and the buck has to stop somewhere.

    Luton Town home

    Next two games will show our credentials - need 4 points really. If we got 4 points - knowing Rovers we would draw with Luton and then beat Forest. Worryingly think we are capable of 6 points - but this is Rovers - hence why would be very happy with 4 points

    Reading (A)

    Slight knock/injury ? (don't know - but would be a possible reason)

    Lewis Holtby

    I thought he had played reasonably well over last few matches ?

    Lewis Holtby

    I understand where you are coming from - but (if is as good as people say) you sometimes have to just take opportunities as they present themselves. Though I think TM has had excellent backing from the owners - it is still obvious that we can't cherry pick players as we did in Kennys golden era. In terms of planning - he wants to play a better passing game. He has tried Buckley to help that - presumably Holtby is seen as the playmaker we have been missing for a long time.

    West Brom Away

    Hmmm ... Warhurst started as a centre half - then converted to striker - the Kenny master stroke to convert to midfield. Chris Sutton started centre back. So converting players from other positions can work out - and for the previous 3 games both players got good reviews.
