Brighton smash Reading 3-0

I'm flabbergasted Stam's boys have achieved 60 points this season, been totally unimpressed when I've seen them
Reading there for a while seemed to have mastered the art of the late winner.
People haven't been impressed by Brighton either, but they've proved they can rise to the occasion.
They're determined not to get caught out like last season.

thought that when we played Brighton at ours they spent most of the match diving for free kicks and trying for bookings (which worked ) , not how I like to see the game played , hope they go up and get stuffed every week but not beat the lowest ever points total in a season which is held by derby.
I could stop drinking but im not a quitter

I don't care for them or give a rat's ass what happens to them Bert. I was just saying why they are where they are.
In this Division you don't get to where we are without being half-way decent - and/or half-way decent at conning refs into free kicks I suppose.

I think if we got the points that most of us predict here (8-10 points every four games) We'd be going up as champions. We'd garner around 90-95 points

Personally I think if we can get 18 points from the next 12 that secures a PO place

We'd be very unlucky if 14 more points wasn't good enough as 75 points has made the playoff every year bar one since 2000.

In fact 70-73 points has made the playoffs at least half the time

Fulham get rid of RMC and all of a sudden they're a force.....how can that be?

Think he got 8 minutes for Forest yesterday
Substituted for Carayol just after HT the game before

Excellent :-D

Those three or four clubs outside the top six will drop points they can ill afford. We have the points in the bag & a cushion which allows us the odd blip. We appear to be on a little run again

...and Forest are 1-1-3 since Feb 1st when he signed for them.
Are we so biased or is there some truth in that he's a bit of a jinx, or that his selfishness is bad for whichever team he plays for?

:duno: He's a conundrum.

He is selfish but he's also almost impossible to accommodate into anything other than a 442. Those who say he can play the 10 role are wrong imo and he often ends up getting shoe horned into where a team has a weakness..

Give me Chris Wood anyday :-D

Ross McCormack

1) Selfish
2) Not a team player
3) Can only play in the outdated 4-4-2 formation
4) Greed is his motivation
5) Four failing championship clubs can't be wrong, soon to be five !
6) Continually missed training whilst at Villa
7) For a player whose agent has negotiated mega-million transfer deals, if he is that good why has he never cemented a regular first-team place in a poor Scotland team ?
8) Little man who thinks he's Mr Big
9) Two criminal charges to his name
10) A shady personal life

Most teams have a blip somewhere down the line, considering where we were for the first few months the lads gave done bloody well to be where they are, and if those few months had been better we'd have been top. The first 13 games we got 17 points out of 39 has been the killer IMO. Still expecting the top two to lose or draw a few more.....
I could of course be talking absolute bollocks esp after a beer

Brighton v Newcastle Tues
Hudds v Newcastle Sat
2 massive and very interesting games.
Apparently all's not well at Newcastle, major under achievement if they don't go up automatically. Hudds could be 2 points behind them with a game in hand come Saturday night, beyond us I feel to pull them both back in.
Anyone with a long memory knows it's a lie, double standards.
