    A decent 3-0 win takes us up to second

    Watford in first look worryingly good though. The game between us both next month is looking like a a mouth-watering prospect right now!

    I think we'll be hard to stop this year. The depth in our squad at the moment is ridiculously good, and if Jovanokic sticks with this 4-3-2-1 he tried on Saturday, a front three of Deeney ,Vydra and Forestieri with Anya and Dyer as impact wingers should mean we won't be short of goals, hopefully the defence keeps up its improvement from last year. Forest on Tuesday will probably be our first big test.

    Lee Clark's gone. Chris Hughton for a "sensational" St. Andrew's return?

    Be very surprised if it wasn't one of Coyle, McDermott, Rowett and Hughton.

    Glad that Clark's gone but who will we have now?

    He was a nice/passionate fella (apart from the boot throwing) and I concede that he did well under the circumstances but at times he was simply inept.

    Chris Hughton has been at St Andrews this evening, as has Tony Pulis so it will be interesting to see what happens. Personally, from a number of sources and from Clark's last interview (with Tom Ross) i think his fate had already been decided before the game against bolton and that they have already chosen a replacement.

    I was shocked that he had been sacked, not because I was shocked at his departure but because of the timing and the fact they did it at all, nice to know that the new greek guy (Pavos) is listening to the fans. I swore very loudly in my lecture when I was messaged and a lot didn't get what the big deal was about.

    I'd be very surprised if you got Pulis. I don't know how your financial situation is, but I imagine Pulis will hold out for a Premier League job after his work with Palace last year. Two big candidates at the moment are supposedly Gary Rowett and Mike Phelan. Thoughts?

    We'll be lucky to get anything out of Norwich tonight. I'm prepared to give Milanic to the end of the season, but if we're not in the top half t the very least then I see no reason to keep him on.

    Went to Wigan away on Saturday. That makes four away games in a row I've not seen Brentford score. I'm seriously considering not going to Bolton this weekend for the sake of the club.

    Hope you went to Wigan Pier whilst you were there.

    Interesting to see Phelan linked with the role, he claimed that he did most of Fergie's work in his last few years at Old Trafford so I want to see how he does as a manager. Not sure if Birmingham would be something he'd be interested in though, given their financial woes.

    Rowett played for Birmingham and surely wouldn't cost much to release from Burton. I think it'll be him.

    Soccer Special is amazing with instant replays of all the Football League goals, why can't they do this for Soccer Saturday?

    I would've had your hand off for a point at Carrow Road before hand. Even more so after going 1-0 down.

    6 defeats from 7 now and Pressley still refuses to criticise this bunch of half arsed **** excuses for professional footballers. What did I do in a previous existence to support this sorry excuse for a football club?

    2-2 against Forest is nothing to be sniffed at, they are one of the top sides in this division as well. However, as Forest should've had a man sent off just before half-time, it should've been more.

    Rowett's on a rolling contract at Burton so I'm not even sure if there would be a release clause. Burton literally can't stop him talking to Birmingham, unlike MK Dons with Robinson.

    I wouldn't put it past Bellusci to do something like this. He is very...fiery
