Nothing minor i hope!
Villa 2 down now
Well this evening is going rather better than I could even have hoped! (SO FAR)
Im started to believe the impossible.
Hasn't helped us though, has it.
That's a big result tonight against a good side.

Tonight's horror show more like.
tbf, I wasn't expecting much.
Looking at your remaining away games and they are tough. I think you will stumble to safety with some home draws.
Cardiff City: Warnock says promotion pressure is on rivals
Steve Bruce: Aston Villa boss sees April as the 'defining month' in Championship race
Mick McCarthy: Ipswich Town manager has 'no intention' to leave the club
Diogo Jota: Wolves wait for news of forward's ankle injury
Can I just say thank you to QPR and Bolton. Wtf has happened to Villa? Seems like the team no one wanted to talk about and who have been hiding in plain sight all season may just pull this off!
Don't count your welsh chickens yet matey. You've got some tough games ahead and as Villa have proved can start losing easily.
Fulham were fucking dreadful yesterday though. Luck to get the point. Anymore performances like that and yeah promotions yours.
Congrats again sealion on another fantastic win. You boys starting to believe yet? Fulham V Millwall in the play offs maybe.
Six away wins on the bounce too! I think we have equalled our record for consecutive away wins.
No But we are officially safe and can't be relegated now I think we have to beat boro, fulham, villa and shefield united to have any chance but i don't think boro will chuck it away now.
You've given up on second place then
Nice finish for our second goal

Darron Gibson finds that what goes around comes around:
Darron Gibson says Sunderland are ‘shit’ and criticises team-mates
Sunderland suspend midfielder Darron Gibson following drink-drive charge
FWIW, I'm not against clubs suspending drink drivers - quite the opposite - but it isn't common practice is it? Presumably the start of the process of getting rid of an injury prone player.
Cardiff stitched up today!
How ? The surrounding areas leading the ground are unsafe. Councils won't allow the match safety certificate if they deem the street surfaces unsafe. That's the world we live in now.
Cardiff Clash Postponed
There was no snow around the ground, the club shop was open, the restaurant at the ground was open, there is a gig at the derby arena next door to the ground which is still on, but Derby only had 10 fit first teamers available! fishy or what?
It might well be fishy but how do you think Derby managed to get it called off ? It's not there decision but the authorities.
A better explanation here Derby County v Cardiff City postponement 'disgraceful' - Neil Warnock plus the usual moaning from Warnock. The decison was announced at 8.30 am.
Where was the better explanation?
The decision was made by Derby county, the police have confirmed that!
I'm not getting into a row with you. I have read the official tweets and statements, that's all i can go by.
The English Football League tweeted a statement saying: "The decision to postpone this afternoon's fixture between Derby County and Cardiff City was made first thing this morning following discussions between Derby County, Derbyshire Police and the local Safety Advisory Group (SAG).
"It was taken in the interests of spectator safety following heavy overnight snow falling in the Derby area which had built up on the roads surrounding the stadium.
"An announcement was made at 8.30am and the EFL is satisfied from the information shared that these were the reasons the match was postponed and will provide Cardiff City with the opportunity to provide any additional information they feel is relevant, before responding further."
To be fair sealion the official statement isn't going to say, "Due to the number of injuries in the squad we are using the snow as an excuse to bottle out of playing Cardiff City at this time", but everyone knows thats what really happened.
You will love it in the premier. There will be plenty to moan about there for a season, it wll suit you to the ground. Conspiracy conspiracy
This sint over with, Derbyshire police have just realised a statement saying that they had nothing to do with the decision which was reached by DCFC alone independently! seems the police aren't too happy that they have been dragged into Derby's cheating antics.
Brentford aim to move into new Lionel Road stadium in December 2019
Aitor Karanka: Rest will do Nottingham Forest good
Adama Traore: Middlesbrough winger needs referee protection says Tony Pulis
For a club with Premiership ambitions i really don't understand the Brentford stadium thing at all. Griffin ark may well be too small, but 17.250 is hardly a sustainable size for premiership football. If they get promoted any time soon it could be too small within a season or two!
