  1. Looks like his welcome back to 2. Bundesliga was a 3-0 thrashing by Heidenheim, a game the fans said they MUST win... Well, I'm glad we have Bruce and can prepare for our 19/20 campaign!
  2. Absolutely... rueing our lost opportunities v West Brom twice, Villa, Leeds, Norwich... been a season of a lot of margins not going our way. It was always a stretch making the infamous squeak / play offs this season and as it looks, being able to finish 7th or 8th is amazing consider what a dire state we were left in due to CC and JL. Just hoping we'll pull through summer unscathed and be a serious contender for promotion next season!
  3. We may have bottled our chances at play offs but by God.. how flipping poo are Leeds... Siging "Falling apart again," just isn't funny anymore they're so poor when it matters and yes, I realise Pigs will get bloody promoted automatically... :(
  4. WTF did Matias do... ppl FFSaking like we've conceded, my nerves and F5 key cannot take that!!!
  5. Didn't I say it last Saturday... just wait for Leeds to now fizz up against Wigan after we've been there and done our best to get a needed win. Their coast to autos was clear, with Pigs drawing v Millwall, and of course they fizz up again today, bloody idiots...
  6. Could Bruce get Rhodes to work, so we could let Hooper, Nuhiu and Winnall all go? Keep the trio of Fletcher, Joao and Rhodes? Alternatively swap Joao and Winnall places? Must keep Westwood, Bannan and Reach. Make Hector and Aarons stay, glad we've got Iorfa. Let Fox, Jones, Abdi and Boyd go too. We need to clear out big earners doing nothing for us.
  7. Saying that though, they're not too consistent and I will be pissed off if they go out next time and lose at home to Wigan!!!
  8. At least he didn't say 'significant other' :D I'll take Brucey's squeak gladly going into the Easter break... let's smash 5 past this bloody Leeds team
  9. Haha, just looked at the table again and our run in and in a rare moment of clarity and reason you see we just won't make the play offs this year... and then there's that damn hope you cling on to. But better just set our sights on finishing the season in style with a few good performances and see if we can end up top 10. Facing so many of the top teams in our last 5 matches, it's ludicrous thinking we're going to win them all. Make that wish from Santa and he'll give you a free pass at wishing for anything else. ;)
  10. We just need to win the rest of our games... simples. And Millwall should beat Pigs on Saturday seeing as we need to keep Leeds ahead of them.
  11. If we do have issues with FFP, I'm afraid Westwood could be the top player we might see go in order make a profit to avoid further embargo/etc.
  12. That's a solid bet, and one I hope you'll be able to cash in on.
  13. Well, Villa are meeting Bristol so one of them will drop points there, or perhaps best outcome is a draw. And Villa have got both Leeds and Norwich in their last two matches... depending on how things look for automatic promotion, those aren't easy games. Bristol have us (mwahaha) and Derby so absolutely chances of losing points there too.
  14. They won't be poor if they manage to go up though, but I agree with the rest of what you're saying ;)
  15. Tonight I will be cheering for Rotherham and Birmingham like never before ;)
  16. He saw the Ba(t)nnan signal in the sky when he limped off the pitch with the hamstring and thought, "Guess it's time to return!"
  17. His tweet was at 10pm at night on Saturday, roughly 4 hours after game was finished.
  18. Buy him if we can within FFP, make him captain, always turning in solid performances at the back! Anyone will have bad days and make a mistake.
  19. Us in 6th, Pigs in 3rd... But to answer the question, us in 6th regardless of pigs getting promoted automatically.
  20. Go for the win, why should we care about Pigs when Leeds have fizzed up on their own.. no need to take Leeds' misery out on us, in fact let's pile more misery on them... the other teams need to fend for themselves, we should only ever worry about our own position.. still 18 points left to fight for. The other teams around us mostly lost or drew too yesterday, except Villa, we keep fighting until the end. It's about ending the season on a positive note.
  21. Out of the 7 remaining games, 6 of them are versus the teams currently placed above us. Win these and we're in the play offs! On a serious side, we've got a really tough run in and I'll be happy to end the season with a top 10 finish if we can. Anything better is a bonus and play offs is like a big hairy goal and if we achieve that, I reckon we'll have accomplished something so huge we'll coast through them and make our way to the glorious lands of Premier League... how's that for jinxing poo up!! :D
  22. No, the play offs are off this year! ;) But yes, someone will and I think it might be Bristol City and Villa as things are going. Even if we beat Villa.
  23. While I will hang on to the dream, I find it highly unlikely we'll make the play offs, we may be just 3 points adrift of 6th, but look at the table below after the 40th round. I've also noted down Boro - Bristol game in hand as a draw and Bristol and Derby both losing their extra game in hand. If all those results go our way, even in Saturday's round and we beat Villa, look at the table... it's insane... We'd still be in 10th, level on points with 4 other teams and 1 pt adrift of two (2!!) play off places... Gotta love the challenge of the Championship, but wow, can't remember last time there was such a close race for the play offs betweeen so many teams. Can even add Preston lurking just one point behind there; I even had to concede a draw to Pigs for them just to keep them behind us. Side note: if people are more or less writing us off from reaching the play offs, we definitely have to write off West Brom from reaching top 2 finish as well.. they're 6 points behind with 7 games left to play. Achievable, yes, but realistic, no... ofc, Leeds do seem shaky and ready to fall apart again ;)
