    Ok, definitely improved as the game went on, has a long way to go.

    We’ve gone off the boil a bit, and lost 3 players to injuries today. Not great for our push but if we pick up a couple of wins in our next couple of games it’ll all be alright again. Blackburn at the weekend now a massive game.

    We got battered by Leeds on Tuesday, hopefully we can bounce back with a better performance on the weekend but Birmingham seem to have found some form.

    He was pretty good for us as a lone striker. I guess it depends on the system played.

    Yeah his dad died, might be back but unknown. We’re also likely without Jansson and Jensen which are big blows.

    I’m just hoping we hold on to everyone (no noise so far - though when we sell it’s usually late in the window). If we can add another striker that would be great but happy with what we’ve got.

    Both Fulham and Forest dropping points is great for us - massive game at Griffin Park next Tuesday against Forest.

    I hope so, I really hate the playoffs. We’ve tended to be really streaky, so once our amazing run at the moment does end we might go on a little winless run and fall back further behind again. This is definitely the best team we’ve had, but we’ve been lucky with injuries so far (Canos aside)...

    Was Iorfa only £200k? Bargain. Some good recruitment in that list.

    Haven’t been on here in ages, seems so dead after the name change. Anyway, main rumour for us today is Emre Mor, a striker currently on loan with Galatasaray. Doesn’t seem to have ever set the world alight but moved to Dortmund for £8m at one point, and Celta Vigo for £11m once, so there should...

    Blackburn away, would be great to get another win as it may be enough to get us into the Top 6 at least temporarily. We're top of the form table at the moment, so hoping we can keep it going as we tend to follow up a loss with more losses! We'll probably make a couple of changes, as we've been...

    Most of that debt is from the new stadium, which is fair enough really!

    This. You may have been debt free when the takeover happened, but if you were still debt free now, and weren’t overspending, it would have been relatively simple to take out a small loan to cover any cash flow issues. The only way you can realistically be in this mess now is if you are still...

    Only 2 points off the play offs now - shame about our terrible start, but we seem to have got it together a little earlier this year. Definitely a lot better defensively which was what we needed to challenge.

    I suspect they may run into some issues, they can’t sack him and not the others because he’s injured, there are a number of laws against that kind of action. I suspect either something else is afoot, or he’ll win a substantial payout in court.

    Karelis off injured on a stretcher on his first start, back to having no strikers, and Millwall score from their first chance, tap in after a deflected shot from distance is saved. It’s terrible luck, again, but we’re also just not very good at the moment.

    Can’t wait for this season to be over. Hit the post and missed a pen so far today, really struggling to score goals this year.

    Millwall at home - feels like a game we should be winning if we want to start climbing the table. Not that confident given our recent performances though. With Canos injured, I imagine we'll stick with a back 4 and Watkins up top. Raya Dalsgaard, Jansson, Jeanvier, Henry Mokotjo, Norgaard...

    I was amazed how bad the queues for food were. We left just before the two minute warning and 5 minutes into the second half, still hadn’t gotten halfway through the queue so gave up.

    Pretty bad from us again. We were certainly unlucky at the start of the season (and had our fair share of bad luck at the weekend) but we’ve been pretty poor in general for a while, another deserved loss today. 2nd lowest scorers in the division - keep that record going and we’ll be in real...
