  1. If there was any dilemma at all (and there isn't), one thing falls into our favour. It has to be right to gamble to win towards the end in a way that we wouldn't usually do; we just HAVE to win. And if we are gambling, at least that either gives us the three points or gives them to Leeds at the expense of United.
  2. Given their respective games, I think it's Villa rather than Bristol City that we are dreaming to catch. There is at least some small snowball effect- that if we beat Norwich, it makes them more likely to need something going to Villa on the last day. Whether Norwich are done and dusted by the last day is crucial to Villa, and thus to everyone else. Think: champions Wolves losing at relegated Sunderland last year. What that means- if we need Norwich to be in need on the last day- is that we need United to keep pushing them :(
  3. What about if we are ahead in both points and not having games in hand?
  4. Disagree. In the context of the playoffs, today is indeed a disaster. If you looked at the fixtures before today, and the dream required an unlikely mix of wins and draws (and mainly wins!), this just had to be a win. It had to be. Derby and Bristol city have had massive days; Villa are on a massive run. "Two points off" was always, and "three points off" now is a conveniently false picture. Apart from the momentum of an unbeaten run, everything is against us; games in hand, goal difference, fixture list. The overall picture is really good for Wednesday, but for this year, the dream ended today
  5. One great thing about Derby is that they have exactly the right positioning of away fans in the ground, and the noisiest home fans next to them. No deliberate long slither like Wolves, no third tier like Newcastle or Sunderland; Just give the away fans an end or corner, next to core home fans, and the atmosphere will be better for everyone.
  6. Let's be real, we cannot go down. If we win, our very small dream of the playoffs changes. It is still a small dream, but the chase will be on. A point at Derby would of course normally be a very decent result. But it's worth little tomorrow; we're safe anyway, and if we get a point, we'll pretty much admit that our playoff dream is over. So.….. gamble. If it's level with 20 minutes to go, go for it. If it's level with 5 minutes to go, play as if we're losing and go all out for the goal. A good February means that we've earnt the right to be able to gamble, and to risk losing. A point is no good to us tomorrow.
  7. There's something that the Kop want you to know, About a big lad from Kosovo He's six foot six and strong as an ox He scores every time he's in the box For ever morrre, Give the ball to Atdte, he will score
  8. Given he was celebrating, presumably a Wednesday fan from the home end?
  9. Now that it's pretty certain that neither of them knew the details, I think Gullit has every right to feel very let down by the laziness of the BBC here. I mean, he would still have come across as an arrogant clown, but it's unfair for him to be known as an arrogant clown who criticised someone whilst knowing that their parents had died. He didn't know. Murphy not knowing the details as an English pundit with other punditry jobs is a bad black mark against him. But, Gullit? I'm not sure. He's there in the role of a big name, a Chelsea legend; is it that bad of him not to know the details of managerial appointments in the Championship? He will come away thinking "the BBC have made me look awful by not briefing me on the one important issue here," and -talking over a woman and everything else aside- I think he has every right to feel like that.
  10. Not to take too much criticism away from Gullit and Murphy, but I think the biggest dropping of the ball is from the BBC production team. It's the first rule of TV to know if any of the topics that are going to be brought up could have sensitive material, and to brief the panel on any important details around it. Yes, of course it is ridiculous, especially for Murphy, that the pundits didn't know the details themselves anyway, but the BBC has got to give them the safety net of a pre-match briefing. They would (presumably?!) not have said what they did had they known the full details, and I think they will have both felt a bit sick at whichever point they learnt after the show that they hadn't just been talking about a man who had decided to take any old holiday.
  11. Come on, let's get it right what happened with VAR and the penalty. It was not a penalty. Any "bias" from the referee was not in the big Southern club's favour. The "bias" was in fact in OUR favour, by trying to give us a penalty which wasn't a penalty. VAR simply changed the decision to the correct one. I think the underrated problem with VAR is that there will be a real damage to the joy of a goal being scored once fans get used to having to "wait and see" if a goal looks at all questionable. Very few people in football seem to be realising the damage that will do to the overall enjoyment in the game- and even more damage in the stadium than on the TV. I hate the prospect of VAR for that reason, despite the fact that it will make the game fairer. But VAR did not get anything wrong yesterday.
  12. Willian probably used to being able to celebrate in thatcl corner of the ground as it's normally home fans.
