    A right old ding dong game at the den last night. End to end stuff and plenty of good attacking football on show from both sides, but neither team could defend. We are getting punished for the slightest mistake this season and have to realise it's not league one that we are playing in anymore. I enjoyed the game and wasn't too pissed off when they scored the winner (seen it all before).A noisy and well supported ( 2k at a guess) Ipswich have a good forward line and an experienced manager in Mick Mccarthy, but i don't expect them to finish in the top ten, going on lasts nights performance.

    well,that was absolute dogs**ite! we just lost to burton albion and tbh, they thoroughly deserved to win. its crap sometimes innit, supporting a perennially useless team. at the beginning of every season you think this year is gonna be different, but it never bloody is! Why couldn't my uncle have took me to old trafford as a kid instead of st andrews. bah! :mad:

    Not good enough to handle the mighty city.

    Pleased to have 6 points from first 4 games. Still too early to say anything much for certain but a bit worried we're not scoring much. Going to need to make our chances count

    Wednesday managed to get the season up and running on Saturday. Have to say I didn't think Fulham played very well - incredibly wasteful in possession, particularly after we went in front. Performances like that are not going to get them anywhere near the top 6.

    bromley ...isn't as good as Lewisham.

    Interesting how well Ipswich are doing after getting dicked 6 (six) 1 at Charlton in pre-season.

    I read somewhere that they have only had 12 shots on target but have scored 9 times.

    I had money on the Villa tonight, they really are having a sluggish start. I won't be backing them or Terry individually again for a while.

    Getting a bit fed up, another win for Cardiff, and we haven't moved up a place for 3 weeks.

    Blues were really, really poor, we lost again, but Reading are no great shakes either. They seem to win by boring the opposition to death. Also, boring ground (surely the most soulless stadium in the UK) and boring fans heh! I think we're cursed with injuries, we signed Carl Jenkinson on loan, off injured within 20 minutes of his debut. I think my prediction table posted earlier may have been a tad optimistic on reflection :oops:!

    I went there once and swore i wouldn't go back again. Bloody grounds in the middle of nowhere and shit voiceless fans. Another club fucked by there stint in the prem.

    Norwich were awful today, we should have got a few more goals but took our foot off the gas. We finally have a win after playing well against Ipswich and Forest but getting zilch from either game. Wolves away for us next, so todays win was vital, points wise, and a much needed confidence boost too!

    Leeds are looking strong. Four clean sheets on the spin, beating Sunderland and forest away from home is never easy, so fair play to them.

    Corrected for you.

    Not unhappy people aren't talking us up tho and C5 highlights treating us very badly, but hey ho. We'll just keep plugging away and taking the points while people ignore us.
