    Wigan Athletic (H) - Monday Night Football (urgh..)

    This is all incredibly tedious to read. I really dislike Paul Cook and want to destroy them next week. Merry Christmas.

    Bristol City (A) - Bradley Dack's Christmas Break

    Crowing and baiting? It was just a joke. Not trying to point score. I wanted Mowbray gone 3 weeks ago. I don’t think anyone thought he could turn it around. Watched some of the full highlights this morning. We looked so assured in possession. Can’t remember us ever looking so comfortable holding on to a lead in the last 10 mins.

    I thought it was when Rothwell got picked...?

    Bristol City (A) - Bradley Dack's Christmas Break

    I don’t think you can leave out Evans or Downing either. We have a busy schedule over Christmas so they will all play their part. The fact that we have 17/18 players in contention for a start says it all. Our squad depth is seriously impressive. This must be the best run of form we’ve been in since relegation from the Prem. 6 wins in 8 is phenomenal. I genuinely didn’t think we had it in us.

    Bristol City (A) - Bradley Dack's Christmas Break

    This is a tough away game. It’s not a free hit and if we’re to be serious contenders then we need to be going to places like this and picking up something. However, a defeat wouldn’t be a disaster, provided that it was tight. I’m not concerned about losing tomorrow. I’m concerned about the possibly reaction to a defeat. Can we pick ourselves straight back up and go on another good run. We beat Brentford at home and they promptly smashed Luton for 7. That’s how decent sides react. We are going to lose a game or two over the season, there is no shame in that. The issue, is when one defeat sparks a run of terrible form for several weeks. That’s what we need to avoid, more than an odd defeat in 6 games.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    He has to explain why he doesn’t sub off each player..?

    Swansea City (A) - F*ck it, let's make it five!

    A fair chunk..? 10 mins at best, be reasonable. The game was fairly even although they probably had the better chances. I was firmly in the Mowbray out camp 3 weeks ago but can’t fault the last 7 games. 5 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat in 7 is a good run of form by any standards. A draw last night does not chance that. We played ok and got a point out of a tricky away game. If we fail to get into the play offs by 2 points, last night will not be the game I’d look back on with regret.

    Reality bites.. So 5 wins in 7 isn’t good enough? 1 draw and suddenly we’re bottom half material. Lucky there’s no overreacting on here,

    Gives a chance for Holtby to start which might not be a bad thing. Dack was probably due a rest anyway..

    Fair result. Dack deserved the second yellow looking at the replay. No real chances for either side second half. Nyambe and Lenihan were impressive. Rothwell had another poor game. Not showing enough consistency to warrant another start. Armstrong got better but you always feel that he can offer more with his pace.

    Rothwell and Armstrong are MIA.

    Pleased to see the same line up. I’d take a point. Tricky midweek away fixture. Avoid defeat to keep the momentum going.

    Swansea City (A) - F*ck it, let's make it five!

    The year we came 6th with Bellamy was 2005/6. Struggled to get over 20k even when the big teams filled the Darwen End.

    Swansea City (A) - F*ck it, let's make it five!

    There were several seasons in the Prem where we got little over 15k home fans on. The year we came 6th with Bellamy and co. Regularly failed to break 20k even with away fans. This isn’t a new phenomenon.
  15. Can only imagine that he’s saving Holtby for the coming fixtures as we have a 3 game week. Didnt see this last two weeks coming. I was all for Mowbray’s sacking in the middle of Nov but you can’t knock the turnaround. 2 points off top 6. Crazy. Well played.
  16. Rothwell has had several very average games this season, last weekend being one of them. Im glad he’s getting a run of games however and think he’s got plenty of potential, but let’s not take it too far. It’s been equally significant that Lenihan has returned to the team and Nyambe is now playing RB instead of Bennett.
  17. Dack is a step up from Rhodes on many fronts. Dack scores goals but is also our main creative outlet. He makes things happen. Not saying he’s ready for the Prem but I think he’s got a far better chance of making it than Rhodes ever had. Rhodes’ record since leaving Rovers speaks volumes.

    Or maybe they’re pragmatic business decisions that have been made because no one is making use of the facilities you’ve listed.. We had 11k on last night. I don’t think you can blame the club for shutting parts of the ground if only 1/3rd of it is full.
  19. magicalmortensleftpeg

    Leeds (A) - Same as last year lads... kind of.

    After the last 8 years, Mowbray is the virus? If this is all it takes for you to start losing your love for the club then I’m not sure where you’ve been since Venky’s arrived. TM needs to go. We need new ideas. He still doesn’t know his best team and his transfers have not worked out.

    Tony Mowbray Discussion

    The results haven’t improved from last season. We’ve played some good stuff in patches but it’s not equated to points. We need new ideas.

    QPR Away

    Yes yes yes. No one is disputing that. This summer, they backed the manager. That’s the point.

    QPR Away

    I haven’t read any reaction and for full disclosure, we’d left the stadium by the time Armstrong scored. Put simply, that was unacceptable. Pitiful. We created nothing and our defence was appalling. Naively, I thought capitulations against bang average teams were a thing of the past. I compare that display with the game at Fulham. We lost that day but gave it a good go and looked a threat. Miles ahead of today. Why is Johnson not involved? Graham was abysmal and shockingly, Rothwell is not the second coming. Bennett and Evans were invisible. Bell is league 1. Who is to blame? Everyone involved.

    Nottingham Forest Home

    Notts Forest at home? Pull yourself together. Some of the hysterical reaction on here is pathetic.

    Nottingham Forest Home

    Were the better team, deserved to win. Travis and Downing ran the game. Bennett looked solid.

    Reading (A)

    So we’re criticising the club for not signing cheap players and getting promoted. It’s not an easy thing to do. That does not justify the Brereton signing but I don’t think it’s fair to look at Pukki and then consider it easy to sign a 20 goal a season championship striker for nothing. How much did Villa spend to get promoted by the way?
