    Yeah apparently we should have had 4. Gutted I couldn’t be there but going to wolves game next week. If you are a betting man stick a few snots of Ffc going up as runners up. We are the 2nd best team in this division,

    Another good result for you boys who are also on s very good run. Good to see.

    Bookies are offering odds of just over 2/1, so much value in that bet now mate.
    It was our third away win on the trot. We hadn't won away this season until recently and got me thinking what could have been if we had picked up more points on the road. It has still been a good season for us considering where we were a year ago.

    The Old Farm Derby was a bit shit until the last five minutes. The highlight before then was Norwich fans taunting Ipswich on 16 minutes, denoting Ipswich's years outside the top flight.

    Yes its a tough run of fixtures for sure but do well and we will basically be fighting for 2nd spot.

    Norwich will be a while getting back up too. No parachute payments to come so will have to do it the hard way,

    So we have extended our unbeaten run to seven games now against an average looking Wednesday side, albeit they were short of striking options. We don't often come from behind to win a game, so another notch for our manager who has realy got us playing now and a great team spirit to boot.

    Bizarre team selection for Wednesday last night. I don’t know if the new manager is trying to play Dutch style total football but playing with no strikers isn’t my idea of trying to win

    No complaints about the result - millwall much the better side

    Rhodes, Hooper and Foresteri were all injured weren't they ? I don't think they were on the bench.
    We had our chances before you scored. I think if we had taken one of them, we have gone on to win comfortably.

    Yes injured as is Steven fletcher. But we had two on the bench as well as our best/most creative player in the period since Christmas (Adam Reach) - all 3 came on after we were 2-1 down and we looked much better

    The starting 11 just screamed of playing for a draw

    I thought before the game that it would end even. We have had drawn our three previous home games and you had drawn your last three aways. I thought the same after you scored but was glad we went on to win. I agree with you about bringing Reach on, he got you moving, but that big lump that went up front for you was a joke, he spent more time mouthing off at the ref than anything else.

    Looking at the table just now, Sunderland look doomed unless they put a serious run of wins together.

    ^^^ How's Richard Stearman doing for your mob ?

    The stats pointed towards a draw on current form and i hardly ever go thinking we will win :D Well done on your win :thumbs: I got a draw double up from 2 confrence games :cool:

    It hasn't been a bad season for our clubs considering we both just came up. I think my lot have exceeded expectations and shocked a few teams and pundits along the way. League one seems a distant memory now thankfully!

    technical I noticed your away shirt had no sponsor slapped on the front, it looked good, any particular reason ? is it just the away shirt ?

    Very shaky start and was out of he team but since Christmas he's been very good - seems settled now and is a good addition. Good if he can keep weighing in with goals as we're a bit off the boil on that front.

    Derby now three games without a win and lucky not to lose to Leeds

    They won on boxing day and nothing since, plus some tough fixtures to come. That new bloke might not last the season!
    No.

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    Still no pundits talking about Cardiff as promotion candidates, its bizarre all the hype around Wolves and the likes of Fulham and Villa, but we are still sat there in second place and still not fancied,

    I fancy Cardiff for the second spot.

    Why does it matter ? they talk shit most of the time anyway.

    I didn't say it mattered, i just find it bizarre! If i was really cynical i'd scream anti-welsh bias or racism or something!
