    Bloody hope not. Teams always make a late charge in the championship and they've been in good form, but they are nowhere near good enough to be the team that sneaks in.
    Do they actually though? Reading aside in those 3 seasons when they decided to start the season in March and obviously palace in 2004, everyone who ends up in the top 6 tends to be in and around the top 10 for the majority of the season

    Fair point tbf, I guess I just get stuck in the mindset that there's always a team making a late run. Remember we did in 2007 I think but missed out on goals scored. The Palace run and playoff final win sticks in my mind as one of the great rises under the great Iain Dowie :rofl:

    Bournemouth-Watford is certainly the stand-out tie from the weekend.

    Can see us just going out with a 'score more goals than you' attitude. Our defence is crap, but Ighalo is on absolute fire at the moment, Deeney is as he always is, and Vydra hopefully just found his goalscoring touch. Expecting all three to play and both teams to score at least 2.

    It's so tight at the top. Considering your managerial instability, to still be within four points of the top is remarkable really. Watched you on the opening day against Bolton actually, and Deeney/Vydra were massively impressive.

    Apparently these guys are loaded, and have already paid to bring Will Keane in on loan from us (as well as someone from Chelsea).

    Let's hope that Wednesday do a Leicester and not a Blackburn/Cardiff/Forest.
    I'm not too convinced by Will Keane being brought in. We really need a proven and experienced goal scorer :lol:

    Yus that is the fear

    Congratulations Walsall and Bristol City, incidentally.

    I actually went to the Wednesday game on Tuesday night, was the worst game I had ever seen sadly. Be interesting to see how these new owners take The Owls forward, I just hope for their sakes they are not like the Thai owners Manchester City had.

    Bournemouth 1 Watford 0 Half time, Watford are down to 10 men, personally I don't think it should have a been a red card.

    Not only was Cathcart covering, the lad knocked it way too far in front to be a goal scoring opportunity. But I like Bournemouth, hope they go up. I think the penalty decision was correct.

    Yeah it was a bad tackle but at the most it was a yellow. Clear penalty though yes.

    2-0 great finish. Game seems wrapped up.

    ...and a fantastic defensive tackle from Cook.

    Brilliant goal that was, Watford have tried but can't help but feel the referee ruined it a bit there. How that Watford player just then didn't even get a card for that challenge, I will never know.

    Priceless three points for Bournemouth.

    Praying the wheels don't fall off.

    That was a horrific tackle. Some were saying it balances out the red in the first minute but not when there's 90+ minutes between the incidents

    Well the first one never a red card, but that last one at the end was an absolute shocker.

    Disgusted. Annoyed. Automatic promotion hopes likely down the drain.

    However, I hope we win our remaining 18 games, finish top of the table, and then every first team member do a lap of the pitch wearing '**** you Lee Probert' shirts. There's crap decisions, and then there's that. Second time this year we've had a wrong sending off in the first five minutes, both against promotion rivals. When will the FA get their heads out of their arses and sort this **** out. The fact Probert has refereed an FA Cup final gives me hope that I can be US President someday.

    If Angella goes, so does Arter in the first half and Pudil gets a ten match ban for his last minute challenge.

    Brentford v 'Boro at 12:15 certainly seems an Interesting game. Brentford just keep surprising.

    Huddersfield v Leeds kick off at 12:30. Avoiding defeat should be minimum, and I'm liking this new 4-5-1 Redfearn is playing. Pushing Byram further forward is far more effective for the team as a whole, he's one of the very few creative players we've got.
