    Little harsh on Samuel. Thought he fairly ineffective as an outball against Brentford, but that was a tough game and he did well in his previous two. In any case, I'm seriously bloody nervous now. Don't care how we win, so long as we do. COYB!

    I know the score was only 2-1, but by all accounts they were battered against Hudds too. A team not exactly on blinding form themselves.

    Lovely set of fixtures, that. Either drags them into a very catchable position or harms several of our other rivals. Possibly even both.

    To a point it's poor, but it also suggests how much time we've actually spent behind in games this season, certainly in recent months.Since losing to Forest on New Years Day, the only time we've spent behind were the 25 minutes against Fulham. You're much less likely to come from behind to win points if you spend less time losing! Equally, if you play in such a way that you come out of the traps quickly and score the most early goals in the league, you're a team that is in more winning positions to begin with, so are much more likely to lose more points from these positions. Not saying the stats are meaningless either, or that we should be satisfied with them, but they are stats which are heavily context dependent.
  6. You get silly results in this league. I think if we end up a couple of points behind PNE come the final whistle next Saturday, we're all licking our lips, even if it comes from drawing one of our next two.
  7. No idea how to feel about that. Disappointed not to win from 2 up, but equally Brentford played well, were at home, and relied on a dive and goal of the season contender to draw. Would have taken the draw before kick off, the challenge is turning this into at least a 5, preferably 7 point week.
  8. I've been, and may continue to be a Bell critic, but that was a very good 45 from him. I thought Buckley showed on maybe 3 occasions that he has the ability and vision to make him an exciting prospect. That said, this game may be dictated by how well we can perform out of possession. Would be surprised if he makes it through the 90.

    Looking at Fulham at Ewood and now tonight, it's obvious that they have some very tidy players who can keep the ball, but if they lose Mitrovic then they're sitting ducks in the play offs for me.

    Can we make the Playoffs?

    We'll probably only know in a few weeks, but I'd say so. Really interesting one, as if we assume that we put the sort of form together that could get us to around 6th, then Fulham are on the cusp of being catchable, but equally we're just about catchable for an improving Derby. Given that we've got Derby away in a few weeks and potentially could face Fulham in the play offs, the best outcome is probably them kicking each other off the park!
  11. I think the issue was more that he didn't come for crosses, rather than making that many mistakes when he did. He made a few like you say, but I think the extra demands that are placed on our defenders was seen as the bigger issue.

    You may be right, but all I'd say to that is that lucky men don't tend to stay lucky forever. After a while the law of averages kicks in, and then it's only right to judge a manager on his record in those circumstances.

    Duff yes, but as much as I love Matty I'd rate Bellamy higher. For the season he was with us I'd even put him slightly higher than Benni and Santa Cruz
  14. I'm not sure I'd even go as far as that. The carrot for winning is massive, no doubt about that. But we can probably lose 3 or 4 of our remaining games and still have a good chance of finishing 6th. If we're edged out in our hardest looking away game, we live to fight another day.

    Slow Build?

    I don't think these ideas are necessarily contradictory. Look at Brentford, they continually invest in good young project players and implement principles about how to play etc whilst occasionally selling the crown jewels for big money, then reinvest. You could argue this was the Hughes model when he was at Rovers.
