My first match day thread started on here.

I'm going to see War on Drugs at Brixton Academy instead so we'll probably win.

Hopefully Luongo comes back in and Swift remembers he's not playing for Chelsea under 20s anymore and becomes more of a team player. Possibly Obika for Smith.

Bradford are on good form, make no mistake, this is going to be a tough match and we can't afford to keep gift wrapping goals for teams.

I'll be heading up to Swindon for this one. Looking forward to it.

Desperately need to get back to winning ways. 10 wins out of 12, then 4 losses in 5. Crazy.

I believe Bristol have the copyright for the humorous Swindle tag

Far superior side to us are Swindon. Doesn't help that we're missing some key players. Walloping win for Swindon. 5-1.

Long term gains.
Going through one of those 'I don't think we'll ever win again phases', first experienced under Paul Hart :eek:

Hopefully Luongo will return on fire to banish those memories!

Dangerous side. Predicted play-offs for Bradford at the start of the season, really like the look of their squad.

Any win will do!

Defeat for this one. Will be a tight game like it always is against us, but I think we'll lose, 2-0.

Long trip, we look knackered, injuries won't help. Don't think we will get battered but I think we will lose.

Sounds like we've been utterly fucking abysmal.

We're playing pretty damn well tonight, though it should be three or four.

Oh, and we're far from a one-man team.

As thought...never play well down there - and missing arguably one of the best strikers in the league, the best defender in the league and the leagues inform winger in Morais.

Doesn't really come as a surprise.

Well, we made bloody hard work of that. Great first half, awful second but a massive three points for us. Got to be better than that at Crewe.

Bit unfair that. We were brilliant 1st half and OK 2nd half.

Sure we gave them our usual freebie goal but they didn't really fashion any chances albeit looking dangerous.

I enjoyed the game immensely and am pleased we're back to somewhere near our best.

Luongo was mega classy and Branco was superb at the back.

As above.

Complete one way traffic 1st half and should have been 4, without exaggerating! Yet another defensive error gifted Bradford a goal which was their 1st shot on target. Fair play to them as they then come at us a bit and made it a nervy finish but we held on and got a deserved win in the end.

Hopefully that's the end of our blip; need a positive result at Crewe this weekend then 2 home games after that
