    An Ipswich-Norwich play-off final would be great.
    What a game that would be. we definately have the quality to reach the play-offs but I think we have a few years to wait before we are beating those top teams to the trophy.

    Reports linking Tony Mowbray to the Coventry job, may be unveiled tomorrow. Preston looking in good form and I think they and Bristol City will go up automatically.

    Swindon via the play-offs for me. Bristol City and either Dons/Preston automatic.

    Yeah or the Dons, I like Robinson, plays some nice stuff.

    I think the play-off place might go to a team who are outside the top 6 at the moment- someone like Ptboro.

    He'll be pinched by somebody sooner rather than later if Dons fail to go up I imagine. They ****ed it at Coventry this weekend, though.

    Word is he has verbally accepted it and will sign tomorrow. Personally I think he must be desperate or insane to take it, but funnier things have happened.

    No they gave in to our overwhelming attacking prowess.

    Yeah, very surprised Coventry were able to do it but I guess with the pressure off and a new approach. They took an absolute battering though and MK were unlucky not to get anything. They 24 shots with 4 shots on target compared to Coventry.

    Samuels, on loan from Reading, has been playing really well. I saw his goals the week before, some nice finishing especially the second one against Sheff Utd. He's only played 4 games and is their 2nd joint top scorer! They lost Wilson to Bournemouth, who looks like he has the potential for the PL. He's their top scorer on 18 goals, in his first season in the Championship.

    I remember him being in contention for Sky Blue job before, maybe before Coleman or Dowie?
    He probably is a bit desperate but I think I heard Coventry have one the biggest wage bills in the league and some interesting players (Haynes, Fleck etc).

    Lol, Coventry rode their luck but a huge 3 points 4 shots in total 3 on target compared to the Dons 23 and 4 on target! I think they will move to safety.

    Speaking of attacking prowess, Nouble is an interesting player. Clearly better than this level but doesn't bothered sometimes. He has a 6 month contract with the club so I can see him moving to another team at the end of the season if he get his act together.
    Also is Proschwitz any good and what is up with Tudgay? Is he just there for the money?

    Wilson has got a move to Everton before scoring 8 times in 40 games before signing for Leicester City career arc if ever I saw one.

    hmmm, tad unfair maybe? Beckford-esque? We shall see what the future holds.

    Lukas Jutkiewicz did something similar.

    Mowbray's a great appointment considering Hockaday was the early favourite.

    Names like Mowbray's have been thrown around before but I didn't find it plausible in the Championship never
    mind the embarrassment we are at present. Coventry shouldn't be in League 1 in the first place let alone struggling to stay in it but with a bit of luck we should scrape it.

    As for Nouble he has been criticised along with many other players for looking half arsed in games. Bear in mind however that the previous manager was atrocious both tactically (more than one game with no shots on target) and in terms of man management, which has at least a bit to do with it I think. You can attribute this to Tudgay's failure as well. As for Proschwitz he is yet to play-Brentford fans have said he is without hope, Jangrafess may have a better idea.

    Losing Callum to Bournemouth epitomised the joke our club has become, but no grudges against him, he outgrew the club very quickly and I hope he goes far. Agree on Samuels, shame our squad is so full of loanees though.

    Bizarrely a player Hockaday recommended from Forest a Green has got off to a good start. Though he should steer clear of the manager's door regardless.

    Which is what every other Brentford fan has said. Makes sense that we sign him.

    I feel like he was a bit of a panic buy for us when we weren't sure if Andre Gray was going to be good enough after splashing out on him. Prosch had had a bad season with Barnsley and for some reason we signed him on big money. He's massive, has a touch which makes the ball look like a beach ball and never bothers in the air. Just happy rotting on the bench or in the reserves while taking enough money to have a comfy life home. In all honesty I'm surprised he's gone out on loan, I would have thought there would be far too much chance of accidentally being selected for the team doing that.
