The curious case of Cameron Stewart
at 11:31 21 Dec 2014

it's just not going to happen with him is it?

What has gone wrong there, he's looked promising at other clubs, he was arguably our blue ribbon signing this season?
So how much has that League Cup game taken out of Derby?
at 14:07 20 Dec 2014

I hope they play like that at Portman Road!
So are Boro likely to be okay for FFP
at 11:28 20 Dec 2014

because they've spent loads I believe?

In the break away four you've got two clubs who have been cautious and two clubs who have gone for broke essentially

I don't think Brentford have done it particularly cheaply either?
Two massive generalisations on the Football League Show from Claridge
at 02:10 14 Dec 2014

(based on about 5 minutes of highlights)
Derby are the best footballing side - Bournemouth would disagree, particularly averaging 3 goals a game :p

Middlesbrough are the hardest working side - I fail to believe this with both Clayton and Leadbitter in their central midfield. However they certainly have some pace in Bamford and Adomah.

Quality players in this League, who'd add a bit more quality
at 17:32 13 Dec 2014

to the very well built side MM has made?

James McClean at Wigan is player who I think would really improve us, very expensive though I suspect :(

There must be a few very good players out there though, the one thing I'd add to this side is a pacey winger with some end product and a pacey striker who runs the channels and makes a nuisance of themselves.

That would more or less be it though!
Match Stats - I don't think Town can have done much more to have won the game
at 17:02 13 Dec 2014

shame the chance of the game fell to Jay Tabb :p

Onwards and upwards, bring on the expensively assembled Boro side!

It's essentially an FFP compliant club versus the Feck FFP club :p Which I suppose was the case with Derby and Boro today also

On a knife edge here, come on Town! (n/t)

Nodge having a renaissance by the looks of it
at 16:31 13 Dec 2014

bless 'em!

We're getting a lot of decent chances here, I hope we take some of them!
Bolton have plenty of useful players
at 15:39 13 Dec 2014

how have they got into that situation?

Feeney who's having a good game has certainly been one of our tormentors in the past. I'd like to see us pick a winger up in January of his ilk.
Sri Lanka are the Cricketing equivalent of the Netherlands
at 11:39 13 Dec 2014

in football.

A small nation but they punch well above their weight! They really do have some unbelievably talented Cricketers. They've produced some of the very best in the last 20 or so years.

Bolton and that play-off
at 19:16 12 Dec 2014

Quite simply - Good prevailed over Evil!

Bolton got everything they deserved during that game, they were an absolute disgrace throughout the match.

Sam Allardyce and their fans have managed to perpetuate a myth over time bless 'em, they can be bitter all they like but they surely had the last laugh given they stayed in the Premiership for a fair bit longer than us in subsequent seasons.

From a supporter point of view, the relief was incredible when we finally chose a season not to bottle the play-offs. We've since bottled 2 since, the sheer hundreds of millions of lost revenue as a result is exactly why it's been 14 years since we've tasted top flight English Football.

When people mention play-offs, it generally brings up bad memories with 5 c0ck ups out of 6. I believe we also had a play-off in the late 80s?

On a side note, has any other club had more play-off appearances than us at this level, I'd hazard a guess Preston, Sheffield United and Wolves would be the contenders for that unfortunate title?
The Deficit and Cuts
at 19:58 11 Dec 2014

in layman's terms the country is running at a loss and our debt has thus spiralled every year we've continued running at a loss

All the talk is about cuts, cuts, cuts

Am I being stupid or should we be also focusing on increasing our money coming in to help reduce said deficit?

You can't just keep cutting and hope everything is going to sort itself out surely?
Jimmy Saville, he might be your dad

chant of the season!
It would be quite funny if we got #mindthegap
at 17:27 29 Nov 2014

trending on Twitter :p

2nd place, absolutely superb and frankly miraculous given all the injury problems, Mick McCarthy what a manager!
Dare I suggest the play-off pack is starting to break clear
at 17:10 29 Nov 2014

There's a 2 points gap there now

Still no idea how Blackburn are in it nor Brentford come to think of it but they're obviously a decent side, Watford, Cardiff and one other from the pack below will push hard later in the season I suspect
It would be great if the Budgies dropped more points today
at 14:34 29 Nov 2014

mind the gap :)
Not too many injuries away from a crisis
at 14:27 29 Nov 2014

cheers for that one Sky

We've got Hyam, Bru, Williams and Bishop out :p

We could desperately do with Cameron Stewart getting himself going, he'd offer us a bit more a threat down the channels
f#@+ng different class :p
at 14:16 29 Nov 2014

Hard work, grindy and we nicked a winner, superb :)
It's games like that where you start to wonder
at 14:15 29 Nov 2014

if it's our year

Charlton look dangerous but ultimately lack that extra bit of composure to really tear this league up, you can see that side being decent in seasons to come
Messy first half
at 13:06 29 Nov 2014

as the commentator said, very sporadic play from ourselves

It's generally a case of launching it into the channels and pinning them back. They look pretty dangerous going forward but so do we on the odd occasion we've got the ball down in the final third.

I can't see us making a change to the way we play with the bench we've got, we're better trying to play to the strengths and get Noel Hunt on chasing the ball down the right flank?
