Apparently if your name is Ibrahimovic and you're playing in front of the scum faithful, you can throw an elbow into someone's head while on a yellow card without there being any consequences.

Go Forest!


Yet another bent ref following on from the legitimate goal Saints had docked in the final last week

Brighton lose to Forest, they're catchable. Norwich routed, their playoff hopes are diminishing,

It's not all over yet :-D

Canaries are shocking defensively

Hopefully Fulham's hope are derailed come Tuesday night

Hudderfield are very shallow in terms of talent. They need to get lucky in terms of suspension and injury to get promoted

We have the four defenders currently starting with Taylor to come back as our five solid/quality types

Cooper is vulnerable

Coyle & Denton are out injured for six weeks

Wood is our only prolific scorer up top

Cooper though would get in most teams first 11 that currently reside in the bottom 10 imo. Wood is the only forward to have been given a run this season so no surprise there's no other strikers scoring

I wouldn't want to under estimate Huddersfield town though . I would tip them to be a certainty for play offs and probably making the final. Both them and Newcastle are very good and hard to beat.

Huddersfield conceded eight goals this week, hopefully will knock their confidence

From now on let Newcastle win as many games as they want,
and let Huddersfield and Brighton get drawn into scrappy dog fights,
at the moment they are not doing so well away from home, and if
we are able to press on with the 3 point philosophy then it would
be lovely to nick second place and automatic promotion.

Nobody wants to say it for fear of Jinxing it but it is time to
Manifest that top two spot.
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

Good to see Huddersfield and Reading losing. Shame about Wednesday and Reading winning but you can't have everything go your way every week.

Wednesday winning just pushed Norwich further away. They were a threat now they're not.

A draw would have been damaging to Norwich and Wednesday

I'm happier with the chasing pack being 1 point further behind. Wednesday aren't winning the league or finishing second so what they do now till the end of the regular season is of little importance. Except to say some key suspensions would be nice
