That Derby (H) game could be a biggie to see out 2017, assuming we're in touching distance at that point. Trips to Boro and Wolves in the meantime won't be easy, so massively important PR becomes a bit of a fortress and we take maximum points from the home matches against Reading and QPR.
Having said that, I fancy us to nick something at Boro next weekend. I feel like confidence is sky high at the moment off the back of these 2 wins and with Chambo coming back, Huws getting back to his best, Bishop back, Garner back, Celina and Waghorn looking unplayable it's a good time to be playing them. Boro are scarier on paper than in reality at the moment, they've lost their last 2 including a 3-0 home defeat to Derby and we should go there and throw a little caution to the wind with a view to taking the game to them. I've just decided I'm going to go, never been to the Riverside before so sod it, last away day of 2017 for me.
Derby play Villa before we play them where something has to give, and Hull away won't be easy, so there's no reason why we couldn't keep pace with them over the next 4 matches.

I'm not sure we're an unattractive proposition to a new manager to be honest. The club and it's history shouldn't need selling to anyone. In terms of potential moving forward, the facilities, the young talent starting to come through etc. I would have thought we would be attractive to a lot of managers. Couple that with the fact we'll pay the right person a decent salary I would imagine for this level, and we have an owner who, for all his faults, has demonstrated in a trigger happy footballing world he's happy to back his managers with time and support and let them do their jobs. I can imagine that's a dream and a rare find for prospective managers. Also there's probably something reassuring about joining a club that have done naff all for a while, there's hardly a weight of expectation that comes with a number of opportunities.
Ok, we're not going to get the cheque book out and spend £10m on a player but I'm not sure I want a manager that's reliant on doing that anyway. I think we should set our sights a little higher than the Gary Megson's of this world.

Out of his depth.Utter sh1te for how long now? Completely careless in possession in injury time too. That 5 minutes sums up the difference between sears and garner.

I would like to draw your attention to a new pop up food venue called Biff’s Jack Shack. Essentially it’s vegan junk food. I’m a meat eater but I have to say this place is out of this world. Given some of your posts in your pre vegan days I get the impression it might be up your street.
|Is anyone openly gay on here? |

Might sound like an odd question to throw out there of a Friday afternoon but spent my lunch break at work having the debate with a colleague about the lack of gay footballers that are out. I'm of the opinion that they're in an environment that doesn't lend itself to them coming out, where as he is adamant there's a disproportionately low number of homosexual footballers, for reasons he couldn't really explain. Said they would gravitate to other careers, which is why he believes it transcends to the stands too. I'm not sure about that, but of the 3 gay people I know, none have any interest in football.

Is it time to stop kidding myself that he's going to get fit and play a key role in our side?

Just looked at the fuxture list. Crikey. Can't see us getting any more than 12 points from these next 10 unfortunately. That would leave us on 33 points at the half way mark, a run rate that would have us about 10th come the end of the season. Feels about right.

Not sure why I'm asking you clowns but here we go...
I've got (had) a nice 3 piece suit I was hoping to wear but I've misplaced the waistcoat (drunkenly left it at a wedding venue / hotel I imagine). It's my favourite suit so I'm still keen to wear it tomorrow, the question is is it acceptable to wear a non matching waistcoat? it's a slightly darker shade of blue to the rest of the suit. Or will I look like a chopper? I'm thinking maybe I just wear the suit as a 2 piece.

Garlic bread that isn't sufficiently cooked through to melt the garlic butter fully. Reminded myself tonight why I never buy garlic bread sticks anymore, in favour of the ciabatta or pizza breads. Made worse by the fact I had already served up my veg chilli and asked my guests (fiancé and her brother) to be seated while it went back in the over. Absolutely livid. It's a good job I don't like the boring little veggie tosser.

Dominic Iorfa @ 50/1
Got to be worth a nibble?

I'm not at all comfortable with Kenclock - Knudsen - Spence - Iorfa as a back 4. If we are going with those 4 then I would much rather see Iorfa inside and Spence at right back. Perhaps compromises our atttacking threat down the right but Iorfa is in my opinion a much more accomplished defender and Knudsen would need that next to him in Chambers' absence. Also, Knudsen playing centrally in a 2 is very different to a 3, so I would think we would have to revert to 5 at the back with Ward at RWB and Knudsen - Iorfa - Spence centrally which feels more balanced but then who are our central 3 in midfield? Skuse and who else? McGoldrick maybe. Maybe Downes if he's fit. Garner and Waggy up top.
Personally I say let's keep the shape we had on Tuesday and throw young Woolfy in. Cometh the hour cometh the man. 4-4-2 with Knudsen left back, Wolfy and Iorfa centrally and Spence right back. Waggy, Skuse, Ward, Sears in midfield and Garner and McGoldrick up front.

I thought he was dog sh1t last night. Felt the back 4 were really exposed and he was part of the problem. With the ball he was poor too, gave it away a few too many times and conceded a completely lazy and needless free kick from which they scored their 3rd.
On a more positive not Waghorn and Garner were great. So much energy and wonderful work rate. They're proper grafters on the pitch and exactly what's required at this level and what we've been missing for a while. As for McGoldrick, pure class. I love watching him play football.
Millwall looked hideous defensively. Not sure if we made them look bad or they're genuinely that terrible. Perhaps a bit of both, but I can't see them staying up if they play like that too often. Their right sided centre half was a disaster. Championship, you're having a laugh.
