Good to see him get some recognition at the EFL awards last night for his services to the EFL. As he said himself, he captained every side he played for. Natural leader who made the most of the ability he had and gave 100% for the team and the club. Top lad.

Any normal season
at 11:50 18 Mar 2024

And 4 wins from our last 8 games would see us finishing very comfortably in 2nd place (likely with a game or two to spare) and in with a sniff of the title. This season is nuts. We may have ended the banter era, but we still don't half have some ropey luck.

Keep the faith
at 16:13 18 Feb 2024

I've seen a lot of people comment when last season's epic run in is mentioned that doing it at this level will be really, really tough, and that is of course correct. Worth noting though that our first 14 games this season yielded 11 wins, 2 draws, and 1 defeat for a total of 35 points. Match that again at the end of the season and we'll finish on 101 points and I'd be staggered if that's not enough for second place. It's going to be hard, we've got some tricky fixtures to come, but our experience of going on extended runs to close out the season coupled with the confidence that we can do so at this level will be a huge plus psychologically over the coming months.

How are they not going to fall foul of FFP? They've gone pretty big in both the summer and January windows, they are bottom half for average attendances and they don't have parachute payments. Unless there is some highly creative accounting going on, I can't see how they are going to get within the permitted losses.

Burgess and the Fridge
at 08:32 23 Jan 2024

Feel a bit sorry for him as I think he's going to struggle to get back in the side if Fridge and Woolf maintain this level of performance. Fridge has stepped in superbly and Woolf continues to impress, just looks like he could slot into any team at any level and not really look out of place, has that confidence about him.

What I liked last night too was how naturally they covered for each other, if Edmundson got pulled across by his man, Woolf slotted in on the left until we could reset, and vice versa. We needed that against their attacking movement. Sometimes with Burgess in there it can feel like a more rigid line of 3 or 4 and if one gets pulled out it leaves big gaps, that hasn't been happening as much with Fridge in there.

Got to give Fridge bags of credit, he's had a tough couple of years having previously looked the best CB at the club. Incredible professionalism to keep himself absolutely match ready to step in and produce this level of performance.

Shout out to Taylor
at 07:59 23 Jan 2024

Think almost everyone has had a shout out now, but wanted to single Taylor out in particular. He's had a slightly rocky time here, found it hard to break the axis of excellence that is Morsy and Luongo which must be frustrating, and when he has had a chance it's been a slightly mixed bag of performances from him. Last night though I thought he was great when he came on. Probably his best and most consistent use of the ball, always showing for it, and was a big part of helping us to get up the pitch and have a foothold in their half for most of the last 25 minutes. He's been overshadowed a bit by the more eye catching forward subs, but without him on the pitch I'm not sure we'd have gone on to take a point.

The system is broken
at 08:47 4 Jan 2024

This kind of gross inequality benefits no one, it contributes to the worst off remaining the worst off and it corrupts the wealthiest too. People in the middle get conned into thinking that they have more in common with those at the top and so support the status quo, when in truth they are far, far closer to those at the bottom. This kind of inequality corrodes societies and leads to nothing but unhappiness.

Today's game
at 11:17 23 Dec 2023

It's a weird one. I feel massively nervous for it and it feels like a massive game but when I let my rational brain kick in, it's only really massive for us if we win or draw whereas for Leeds this is approaching must win territory. If we lose we still have a 7 point gap to them, which is exactly what we had before the Middleborough game and coming out of playing Boro, Watford, Norwich, and Leeds - three of them away from home - having maintained a 7 point gap would be an impressive feat. We're also four games closer to the end of the season with three of our tougher fixtures out of the way. On the other hand, draw and we've opened up a 10 point gap over that tough run and Leeds have no further chance to directly take points off us. Win and we're in dream land. Definitely feels like, despite my prematch nerves, there's WAY more pressure on them to win this match than there is on us.

Is the one who managed to disallow Harness' goal at home to Barnsley last season. In a season of ref's making/missing big decisions against us, this one stood out as a particularly absurd decision. Let's hope he has a better day tomorrow.

Spare a thought.....
at 17:38 17 Dec 2023

.....for poor Michelle Mone and Doug Barrowman. All they did was use a global pandemic to rinse a load of public funds at a very healthy profit margin for items that have since been described as not fit for purpose. Oh, and then lie about any involvement repeatedly and threaten journalists with legal action if they dared to tell the truth. They are the real victims here, having to suffer the ignominy of being held to account.
