I can't believe I'm saying this but come on Bolton, find a winner. Would love to see Derby spoon it up.

Superb today, but anyone else screaming at him to square it to Sarmiento when he broke in the 2nd half?

Obviously feels like another missed opportunity to firmly put us in the driving seat, but another way of looking at it is we’ve ticked another couple of tough games off and we’re still there. Southampton having something riding on their trip to Leicester might not be a bad thing. We’ve also got the luxury of sitting back now, plenty of other teams playing before we do again and we can see how they get on and how the league table shapes up. Plus we’ve got a bit of a break which it looks like we need. Boro are decent, hopefully they do Leeds a week on Monday.

More twists and turns no doubt, but ultimately we’ve taken more points than Leeds & Leicester over the last 2 games, and I would’ve taken that at the start of the week.

Why aren’t these pushes in the back in the box being penalised?

Hutchinson at Norwich
Al-Hamadi vs Watford
Al-Hamadi today

Today looked stone wall, I had a good view. Anyone seen a replay? Anywhere else on the pitch and it’s a foul.

I see Sargent went off injured for Norwich

Never nice to see a player get injured.

But on this occasion I can live with it. Poor Norwich.

Somewhat expectantly, hoping for a flurry of injuries or something.

Soon closed the app disheartened. Absolute cake walk incoming for them tonight, ridiculous team.

Thought it was a laboured and tired performance for the most part

Hate to say it but the better team won.

We’ll smash the c***s in the playoffs if that proves to be our destiny.

Even if the top 2 pull away a bit

It would be lovely to go to Norwich safe in the knowledge that we’re top 6 and feck their playoff push up wouldn’t it.

Really seems to be struggling with the physicality of this one. Lost count of the number of times he’s lost the ball.

Friday night will be juicy at Hillsborough
at 23:33 5 Mar 2024

4 wins on the bounce for Sheff Wednesday, fighting like Beavers to stay up, vocal and no doubt fired up atmosphere and local derby. Should be an interesting one.

How good would it be to go to Cardiff on Saturday with the added motivation that a win could put 4 or 5 points between us and 3rd?

Nah not having this

If I wanted to watch basketball I'd follow Chicago Bulls innit. Heart can't take it. Bl00dy football.

How good was Wes Burns in that 2nd half? Absolutely phenomenal demonstration of how to play in that role. Gives us so much width, pace, quality to get in behind his full back and create.

Wasn't pretty at times and thought we looked very loose at the back, but we got the points and that's really all that matters right now. 6 wins on the bounce.

And then there were 10...

I had a smashing day yesterday
at 11:27 25 Feb 2024

Bit of a pub crawl pre match in some early spring (perhaps premature) weather, nice crisp chill in the air but blue skies with a little cloud. Not sure why, but decided early on it was a cider day, and had a lovely few crisp pints.

Took my seat at 14:55 for a rare treat that is a Saturday 3pm kick off, it felt like forever ago that we had one of those at PR. I thought we were largely dominant throughout, something there’s a real danger that we take as a given. I’ve found myself doing that, and then realising that we’re playing the likes of Birmingham City who, objectively, we haven’t until very recently had any real right to be so expectant against. Such is our quality and form under KM now, and to a degree their own. Outplayed them, outclassed them, look threatening going forward and were in not for better decision making at times could’ve had 5. Rarely troubled defensively, but for a counter just before the break. We’re not where we are by luck as some salty supporters of other teams will have us believe. All of last season + this season to date is 80 league games, and we’ve come away with points in 72 of them. Staggering quite frankly, and not due to chance. 72 points from 34 played this year, as has been said is title winning form most seasons. Alas it won’t be this, but we have every chance of getting into the top 2. Frankly, if we don’t, my strong preference is that Leeds and Leicester take the spots as I wouldn’t fancy them in the playoffs. Whatever happens we’ve got a great shot at promotion, and if it doesn’t happen we’ll come back stronger and likely in a less competitive field. Ultimately we’re living through an incredible season regardless. Relatively speaking we’ve not been as good as we are today in the context of the English game for over 20 years.

Post match back to a friends house in Ipswich for some more pints, rugger on the TV, poker night and a ruby courtesy of Zaika, which always hits the spot.

Splendid.

Just looked at the league 1 table

Race for 2nd is looking tight, would love to see that bobble hat tool and his Derby side miss out again. If he was made of chocolate he would eat himself.

At the other end it’s looking a bit perilous for Charlton too. Mad to think they could be in L2.

Next 5 games
at 17:46 22 Feb 2024

I know a lot has been made of our fixtures and run in, but having just looked properly at it, the final 7 games of the season before Huddersfield are actually pretty fearsome. Trips to Blackburn, Norwich, Coventry and Hull. 3 sides gunning for 6th (although arguably might not all be by the time we play them) including 'them'. And Blackburn, who I NEVER feel like we beat at Ewood (other than the Richard Wright masterclass). Home games against Southampton, Watford and Middlesbrough. 3 very good sides I would say, certainly on their day in the case of Watford and Boro. Then finishing at home to Huddersfield is, on paper, a good fixture, but they might have to find something to stay up.

Certainly makes the next 5 in advance of that a chance / necessity perhaps to make a bit of hay. 12 or 13 points a minimum requirement I would say if we're to finish top 2, as ridiculous as that sounds.
