Brighton (h) - tough game and will be a hard fought draw
Charlton (a) - They are in free fall so hopefully another away win
Huddersfield (h) - They, and Chris Powell have a good record at our place but things we will have enough to beat em.
Blackburn (a) Rhodes inspired home win and the unbeaten run goes.

7 from 12.

Think this month might bring us back down to earth a little bit, though November is a month we traditionally dominate:

Hull (H) - tough tough game. They've been on some good form of late, and have some great attacking players. End to the winning run I feel - Lose

Blackburn (A) - another tough one, but I fancy us to nick something here. Narrow Win

Forest (H) - reckon it'll be a tight game, probably 1-1 or something like that - Draw

Bolton (A) - hopefully we'll finish the month strongly - Win

7 from 12 would be a great return from some tough fixtures, wouldn't bet against 3-5 points though.

If we do well this month, I'll be backing us to have a storming December

Bolton (H) - We need to break our run of home draws, this is a good game to do it. Win
Rotherham (A)
- Have they won under Redfearn yet? They will here. Lose
Wolves (H)
- No idea about this one, close whichever way it goes. Draw
Charlton (A)
- Given their current form we should really be winning this one. Win

Hard to imagine an easier month on paper given that we're playing all of the current bottom three, but our recent form is so bad I still don't feel confident. We need to get at least 9 points from these games to get back on track, I'm not sure it's going to happen.

Charlton (H) - both on absolute terrible form, not actually sure either of us can score goals or win games but I will try to be optimistic. 1-0 win Simon Church.

Brighton (A) - they're good we are shit. Unexpected draw. 0-0

Fulham (H) - Gonna beat us fairly comfortabley 3-0 Fulham.

Wolves (A) - Benik Afobe to score 4 and not celebrate one of them. 5-0 Wolves.

I'd hope we can go this month unbeaten. Several clubs that are currently out of form (not that we're in great form anymore)..

Huddersfield (H) - Win
Cardiff (A) - Draw
Bolton (H) - Win
Nottingham Forest (A) - Draw

8 points from those 4 and i'll be happy. Would be disappointed with anything less than 7.

Wolves (H) - Well when the fuck do we ever not lose to Wolves? 0-4.

Bolton (A) - Exactly the sort of game they need to give them a kickstart. 1-0 loss.

Hull (H) - pfffftttt, this could be any number. 1-2 loss.

Rotherham (A) - Might scrape a draw, will probably lose late on. 2-1.

0 points, seeing us comfortably in the relegation zone.

QPR (H) - Their defence isn't good, puts suddenly is so I'd hope we can get a Win.

Forest (A) - We should win this on paper... Probably be a draw, Jamie Ward will score too.

Cardiff (H) - Would like to think we can get another home win to keep the run going.

Hull (A) - Very difficult, won't expect much out of this so will say loss, however a draw or even win isn't out the question.

QPR (H) - win. Tight game I reckon for this. May see some changes with forest on the horizon.

Forest (A) - draw. Reckon they'll be well up for it and away from home we seem more inclined to sit back a bit

Cardiff (H) - home win.

Hull (A) - loss. They're a difficult team and will be impressed if we get anything.

JJH Is back :lol:

Wolves (H) - Draw, I was confident before yesterday that we may get a win, but with Wolves winning and us being trounced that optimism is gone, think we may still get a draw though.

Bolton (A) - Draw, a team on as bad a run as we are, think we could just cancel each other out. I wouldn't think a win could be beyond us here, but confident we can get a point from it.

Hull (H) - Loss, despite our apparent good recent form on Sky I think Hull will be too strong for us.

Rotherham (A) - Win, reckon we may nick one here seeing us take 5 points from the month.

QPR (H) - Can we have revenge please? Not quite the same as a playoff final, but giving them a thrashing would be nice. I think we can win this, but it'll be close. 2-1 win

Forest (A) - Forest were shit in January, but came to Pride Park and won. Form means nothing in this fixture and with being away I expect a Forest win and an end to our unbeaten run here. 2-1 loss

Cardiff (H) - Got to be looking at winning this. 2-0 win.

Hull (A) - A draw would be nice, but can see Hull picking up the three points in this one. 1-0 defeat.

Not a great month

Wolves (H) - Loss. They won 2-0 against the in-form team in this division; while we were thrashed by one of the more inconsistent teams of the division. 2-0 to Wolves.
Bolton (A) - This is the sort of match we really need to win, and I expect we'll get one. 1-0 to us.

Hull (H) - Definitely a loss. 3-0 loss.

Rotherham (A) - Another game that we should win and a game I believe we should. 2-1 to us.

Really doubt you'll lose against Cardiff, they looked average vs us.
I am just being my usual negative self. Can't predict us to win all 4 fixtures in November although as you say they did look average against Bristol City.

Birmingham (A) - Hope for a draw, probably lose. 2-1 loss.
Brentford (H) - Play like we have done we should win this. 2-0 win.
Preston (A) - Big game, we never win big games. 1-1.
Sheff Wed (H) - Rhodes double gives us the win. 2-1 win.

7/12 points. Slightly optimistic.

If we're serious we need a minimum 8 points.

Cardiff and QPR at home, Forest and Hull away - don't care how we get them. It would be nice not to lose at the City Ground but if we win the other three I won't care!

Bristol Cities (a). 0-0. Until the weekend we looked ripe for the picking. Now we have a stronger back four I can see a stalemate.

Burnley (h) 1-2. Burnley are that anonymous, invisible team that is doing well below the radar. If you had to list all the clubs in the division on a sheet of paper, Burnley is the one you would forget about. Jason Shackell to score twice. Oh wait.

Ipswich (a) 2-2. An ugly game between two dour, unanimated, mute, stone-faced gaffers. Danny Batth to be sent off.

MK Dons (h) 3-0. Revenge for two seasons ago, when the Stony Stratford Massiv took our place and sprayed tartan graffiti and Latin poetry over the subway walls. Heavy police presence for this one, given the long-standing bitter rivalry between the clubs.

5 points. We will end the month in 14th position with manager and three players being quoted in the E&S as saying "we can still reach the playoffs". Yeh. If you are transferred to Derby or Hull.

Derby (a) Loss
Presron (h) Win
Middlesbeough (a) Loss
Leeds (h) Draw

4 points keeping us in mid table.
I cant see us winning any of these. The fans are not behind the team, they are against them - well, Ramsey.

Strangely enough, I think if we were to win, it would be against Derby and Boro, where we are all expecting us to lose and the players would raise their game. I can see the players thinking they have a divine right to win the two home games.

Big month this. A few struggling teams, need to start picking up some wins.

Wolves (H) - Win 2-1. This team tends to bounce back pretty well, confident we can put a shambolic first half on Sat behind us and get a win here.

Bolton (A) - Draw 1-1. Another one of those 'if only we'd taken our chances' games.

Hull (H) - Lose 1-3. Just the type of team to exploit our weaknesses.

Rotherham (A) - Win 2-1. Can see a dogfight here but the optimistic side of me says we'll nick it.

7 pts, putting us into mid table security

It's difficult to see where we will get points given our dismal scoring record:

Charlton (H) - through those rose tinted specs a narrow victory. WIN

Brighton (A) - they don't steamroller teams (even shit ones) and we will defend stoutly. LOSS

Fulham (H) - not even a remote chance. LOSS

Wolves (A) - despite Benik being a banker to score, I'm thinking a sneaky late equaliser here. DRAW

Anything more than 3 points from the month would be progress.

And it's all gone to shit already. Oh well - I'll only be 3 points out come the end of the month, so I'll just about be satisfied.

Not a great month
Ended up with 9/12pts
Only dropping points in the defeat at Forest. Happy with that.
