    And if further justification for hating forest was needed.



    3 man assault on Kevin Phillips (that the ref did nothing about) - vile little toerags of players, just like their manager.

    Edit: Just seen Davies complaining that we were encroaching during the penalty... Only Phillips is in the box when he strikes it?
    Where's your blue card?

    Drew 0-0 away to bottom of the league Yeovil, that's 180 minutes played against them, having not scored. Another debutant in Ranegie last night, probably only signed for the fact he's about 6'5"... I'd like to see some form of playoff charge, but it seems unlikely. Rebuild in the summer, keep Sannino, hopefully get a new Director of Football, Nani doesn't seem to have much of a clue what's going on, then actually get some attackers in and keep them rather than just loan them back out again.
    If only Yeovil could play Watford every week, they could stay up. Or Millwall.

    In fairness Knockaert was pulled back - it's just a case that refs don't tend to give you anything if you're honest and stay up despite being fouled. That's why the anti-diving laws will get nowhere: so long as players feel that they need to go down to get the decision, diving will continue.

    To be fair, there was contact from the defender on Knockaert, however, it was closer to a summer's breeze than to a pull back, and Knockaert extremely over-reacted to it, and you could tell by how he went down he only ever wanted the penalty in that instance. However, like SLF says, the ref wouldn't have given anything if he'd stayed strong, and he wouldn't have scored either. Knockaert got what he deserved though, people won't forget that moment for a while.

    As a former ref myself I gave penalties when I was sure a foul had been committed-not necessarily when a player went down. Going down like you've been shot is something I used to only associate with top flight games but now players in the second tier are at it as well-it just spoils the game as a spectacle and I don't think it's right to blame referees for that.

    Depends on whether it was a professional post or not.

    Anyway, across the 70 point mark, 12 clear of Derby in third with 14 games left - would take a bottling of epic proportions not to go up now.

    Haven't won away in 4 months, but now are really tough to beat at home. Can never please everyone, but at least Readig lost also to keep our slim playoff hopes alive. On life support, but alive.
