The season isn't over but we were very poor today, I actually don't think we've played well for a few weeks now and a defeat was coming. 

100%. And I actually think our second half performance tonight was better then any half we’ve had since Forest. And that’s not saying we were good tonight.

We we’re awful at Blackpool, crap in the cup and awful against Reading. Late winners are great but they do probably paper of the cracks for a lot of fans.

Im still more then happy where we are in the league. We are actually playing for something now..

Negativity on here is terrible. Playing 2nd place in the division away from home. A tough stop start game. Missed a couple of really good chances which on another day could have won us the game. They

We've missed some golden late chances and not been at our best - but why there is so much negativity on here is beyond me. We're on a great run and playing an away fixture against an extremely tough s

Disappointing result and performance, but nights like last night are standard in the Championship - even for promotion candidates. Even during our promotion under Karanka we had many of these types of

If you just watched that midfield for 90 minutes and thought yep that looks great don't need to change anything there then I don't really know what to say. 

No one has said that

Payero has got to start at the weekend! As he will feed sporar 

More chance of Michael Ricketts coming out of retirement and playing.

Then in that case I don't know why you responded with a ?

I didn't mean sweeping wholesale changes, but freshening the side up would certainly do no harm.

Their goal was offside  ..

No it wasn’t. McNair touched the ball so it’s a new situation. He actively goes for the ball and gets a slight touch. Perfectly good goal.

Blackburn actually have pretty good support when you consider they are a fairly small town, they share catchment areas with lots of other Lancashire clubs and they are a short drive from Liverpool and Manchester where you have 4 giant Premier league clubs. 

I don't think we're any better supported to be honest. 

I wouldn't say so either.

Compared to Blackburn, our catchment area is pretty big without any major local competitors, and we're not overwhelmingly better supported.

Likewise compared to us, Leeds/Newcastle/Sunderland have huge catchment areas.

McNair's swing at the ball was pure sunday league

Off night tonight, awful 1st half, much better 2nd half but that unfortunate stoppage absolutely killed our momentum. Hope the person involved is okay.

Getting a bit worried with Wilder's subs, does he only know how to chuck attackers on? We also need balance on the left, teams are realising all our attacks come down the right with Crooks and Jones.

Payero for Howson and Balogun for Sporar against Coventry, Connolly has been getting into some excellent positions, just looks rusty from not playing. Sporar hasn't done much wrong but I think we could rest him.

On we go, UTB

                    Lumley 

    Dijksteel    Fry     McNair

Jones         Howson        Tav

            Crooks    Payero 

            Sporar   Balogun 

I’m not convinced on Tav at wing back but we desperately need some sort of threat down that side

    • A retired Shay Given gives us 15 more points than a season with Lumley
    • It’s going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don’t see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely, possibly not.  Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I’ll settle for the playoffs. 
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat  - fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.  if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.  personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
