Can't see us getting beat until perhaps Cardiff away always a bogey ground for us, Burnley will play a weakened team against us (part of the Wood deal?) so we should win that game

We must also bear in mind that this league is very much on the day .. I'd say a lot of teams are well able to beat one another.
Form can go out the window and home form has to be paramount. A lot of sides know what the others are about .Tjougj hopefully with our knew additions and team spirit we can match and catch out most of 'em.

Really hard to pick but I do think it will be because we have an off day rather than someone outplays us.

When the fixtures came out the one I was dreading was the Millwall game, I think the last 8 games there have been 1 win 7 defeats, they always seem to raise their game for us. Mind we haven't got a great record at home v Birmingham, last 7- won 1 drew 2 lost 4. Hoodoo's are there to be beat I suppose.

I'll go Millwall.

Short answer is I don't know, but how we react to it will give us an idea of how far this team can go this season. Confidence is high, we're playing well, but we will have an off day at some point. As long as we dust ourselves off and move on, then we will be fine

Not anymore Rat

We've beaten them 0-2 the last two seasons.

One of our best away performances last year. Hernandez had a stormer scoring a stunning goal

Really hoping possibly we'll inflict their first defeat just to get Warnock in a lather although Preston could do them tonight especially as it's at Deepdale

I'm the same Nick, it will happen but I honestly don't know.

Great point mate on how we react after a defeat :tup:

From what I have seen so far in our six games this season plus the highlights of various games on the telly I don't fear any team.
Fulham looked the best team but the Cottagers are struggling to win games winning only one & drawing 4 of the 6 matches
Derby looked strong v Hull but the rams always flatter to deceive

It could well be the Brummies Harry, they will have to raise their game significantly if they are the team to beat us on current form. Jota is their danger man, if we can keep him quiet I hopefully we'll get a result

Oh I do think we owe Arry one and it would be nice too. Knowing him though he won't take this one lightly and they could be hard to beat. Might not be much on this one.

Form can be extremely fickle in the championship and a team looking amazing can suddenly lose 3 on the bounce and look awful. Don't forget our best performance last season, beating Derby 1-0, was followed up by us getting drubbed at Barnsley where we were absolutely abysmal.
Any team is capable of beating us in the championship and more important we are more than capable of beating ourselves by getting carried away and then not performing to the maximum, or one of those games where whatever we try just doesn't come off.

Sky Sports just put the jinx on us, saying that we are on our way back to the big time....
I thought we would smash 3 past brummies tonight but after all the tv hype I think we could come a cropper... :(

I don't know, I don't want to know and I am not personally going to tempt fate by hazarding a guess.

I remember a certain season when Burnley beat us 5-1 and that was a shock.
