7 points behind Villa, can we catch them?

 

yep, keep winning while they are slipping up we'll be past them with games to spare. their bubble has burst, peaked to early. same with fulham imo.

Agree on Villa. Not so sure about Fulham. Think they will comfortably finish 3rd.

We could end up anywhere from 4th to 10th!

Let’s hope it is one of the first three

Happy with the point. Sounds like we didn't have a great deal of the game from listening to it so only conceding the one goal was pretty good in the end. Makes Brentford's late push look done and dusted when you look at the table. Just every bugger else we have to worry about now. Millwall and Preston look to be making big late pushes and the early challengers Bristol City and Sheffield United remain within touching distance.

 

Brentford looked like they were playing with an extra man at times, there was always someone free. They passed around quickly, a lot of 1 touch stuff, within two to three passes they were off down the sideline.

 

They played very, very well.

 

I will say though that it was one of those games where every bounce went their way. Balls would take weird bounces and land right back at a Brentford foot, deflections would somehow bounce back out to a Brentford player, the wind would carry the ball perfectly for a Brentford player to control. It was thoroughly bizarre.

 

Agree with this completely. They are a very good footballing side but we let them play at times , and didn’t help ourselves with really poor passes out of defence

Which one was the ginger bloke in midfield that controlled the game

Nothing wrong with that result. Very solid draw. And eliminates Brentford as a realistic rival for top 6 (they needed to win). Though a win would have been huge for us.

 

Looks like 2 from 6 teams now. Derby, Boro, Bristol City, Preston, Sheffield Utd and Millwall. Very much in the balance. We've negotiated the 'easier' run of fixtures very successfully. But...

 

- Wolves home. Obviously tough. That said, they're in the midst of a bit of a blip.

- Burton away. Should win that. But on their own turf.

- Forest home. Solid under AK. Feel a bit uneasy about it.

- Sheffield Utd away. Direct rival.

- Bristol City home. Direct rival.

- Derby away. Direct rival.

- Millwall home. Direct rival.

- Ipswich away. Tough one to predict.

 

Not an easy run-in.

Woods was his name. Should have been off mind in the first half after that booking on Adama.

Could've been sent off three times with the number of yellow card offences he committed

Dean Windass got sent off three times once I seem to remember.

 

Didn’t he also injure himself lifting his sports bag out of the boot of his car?? Putting him out for 4/5 weeks? :s

I heard he once beat Chuck Norris in a fist fight without even throwing a punch...

Not a good or bad result yesterday but it's a step in the right direction, what do you guys actually think of gaining promotion? Good or thing? Obviously it's great to play at the highest level but last season really was awful, do you reckon pulis would stay and would we be any better? Slightly digressing from from the thread. Sorry

Yesterday was a good result. Not a great result but a good one. It keeps us 3rd in the form table with 14/18 points out of the last 6 games and with the best goal difference.

For me promotion is always the preferred option. And yes while last season was as depressing as it has been I think TP would do better

The reasons I believe this, is the fact he knows the division. He knows what players and make it and what players he needs to bring in. Instead of the scatter gun approach of AK. Just look where his former teams Stoke/WBA are right now. I reckon their fans would love to have him back

    • Wait, are you saying we can't criticise players for playing bad? Fry was awful last season, to the point Warnock has stated he "didn't get the hype" over Fry.  Why can't we criticise players that are playing well beneath the level we've seen them reach previously?
    • Sorry mate, but he's been cack (nicest word I can put without breaking violations) so I wouldn't compare it to other performances this season, plus he's been on the bench a lot. He literally once again brought nothing to the side but I felt sorry that he got put out at LWB.
    • I'm genuinely interested to hear what you expect as a fan and that isn't me having a dig honestly.... Every fan has different expectations. As a paying customer and a fan I want to see us win at all costs, and if we do that by playing good football then that's a added bonus. I'd love to see us have some identity as a club but unfortunately whilst we have Bausor and Gibson running it, we won't and fans need to get use to that. Additionally, to that I wanted a manager in the summer who we could put down foundations with for the next 3 or 4 seasons and had experience (someone like Houghton or Pearson. I'm not knocking Warnock because he's done a good  job in such a short space of time and I like the togetherness of the team.
    • He wasn't awful but that's not really the point, is it?  Don't slag the players off for being bad unless you think they are bad, is a bit of a catch all type of thing.
    • I mean, it still doesn't change the fact that when everyone was complaining about him he was awful, even Warnock said as much.
