I don't know, but we've somehow managed 1 point and zero goals in our two games against them. Just dreadful. Especially given they shipped 7 the previous week. I absolutely hate this division sometimes.

Our win slightly tarnished by Millwall's result but still, we're on a steadier path now...unbeaten in the league since the turn of the year and hopefully we can build on it to make sure we pull away. Nice to see a cushion between the bottom two and safety but still lots of twists and turns to come.

It's a bizarre state of affairs when you're on a reasonable run of form and the very LAST fixture you want next is the side rock bottom with barely a win to their name all season. But that result is just us in a nutshell. Thoroughly depressing..

What a complete waste of time that was beating Brighton. We're down but we're dragging fuckers like Brighton with us, of whom, I'd far rather stay up over Leeds or any other trash like that.

Well, we're still not very good but I'm a little buoyed this evening by the fact that I'm beginning to believe that Wigan and Millwall are actually worse than us.

Great win for Rotherham today.

Beating us is no feat, even with ten men. One point from our last seven home games.

I've got to say, from a Millers point of view, today couldn't hav gone any better at all.

Beating one of the top sides in the division (who had a huge off day), the bottom three losing with Charlton, Leeds and Brighton losing as well.

As it stands, we're two points from being a midtable side, but the reality is we're relegation strugglers. There are teams down there that you'd expect to be higher (Bolton, for example) and teams higher up that aren't that great and it wouldn't be out of the realms of possibilty seeing them dragged into it (Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham).

Personally, I've been expecting the Wigan resurgence for a long time, but will it ever come? It's a big ask now for them to get to 46/47 points from their existing tally. I'd suggest Blackpool are too deep, too.

Today was a huge win but the rest of Feb sees us face Blackburn away, Derby at home, Wolves away then Watford away. We're playing well enough, but that is a tough run against some quality sides.

We finish the month with Millwall at home, which, depending on how the results go between now and then, could be huge. The last time we played them lot in a big game, they trounced us 4-0 with Steve Claridge making a mockery of our defence. Mind you, that team had players like Tony Warner, Tim Cahill, Paul Ifill, Lucas Neill, David Livermore, Neil Harris (though not sure he played) and they were thrashing teams for 6 and 7 that year. I doubt they pose the same attacking threat these days.

Think we can safely say we don't have anything close to that talent to call upon these days (although not sure why you'd put Livermore in that bracket). To be honest, I'd probably still take Claridge now over most of the forwards we have to offer.

Claridge was a scruffy looking so-and-so. Long, ill-fitting shirt, socks rolled down with no shin pads. He always used to look like he'd just been dragged off a park last minute to play, but he was an intelligent player and came alive in and around the box. Seemed to be a poor man's Teddy Sheringham, but a good player certainly.

10 points off the bottom three, surely can't see us getting dragged in.

Blackpool Wigan and Millwall for me if Holloway stays.

It's more the fact we only need 13 points from 17 games to reach 50 points, which is probably more than will be required this year.

I actually thought Millwall's XI was alright when I first saw it today and expected a loss all day long when we went down to 10, especially after winning last week.

We are about as far from that side as any time I can remember since. We've looked more comfortable away from home recently, but I'd be very surprised if we managed to get anything from our game. Rotherham will be up for it.

Save for what now looks like a one off result against Ipswich the other week, we've become such a soft touch at home this season, it's embarrassing. Seriously hampering our bid for safety. Even when we play well, like yesterday (for the most part), we find a way to screw it up by gifting goals with defensive lapses whilst fluffing everything up the other end. Feels like we concede a goal for every 3 chances the opponents have, including - invariably - their first notable one of the game.. our ratio, on the other hand, must make for horrific reading.

Thankfully it does seem there are 3 worse teams in the division, but it doesn't make it any more comfortable. Think we play Millwall away fairly soon, which could be a decisive one.

Yeah, embarrassing. Right in front of the referee too.

We won't be dragged in and your weird little obsession with Wednesday belies your intelligence. Toytown tramp

Guarantee you'll beat us Tuesday, exactly the kind of run I'd always fancy us to end. I'd rather us play a team unbeaten in 13 than without a win in 13. Before their consecutive wins this week, Reading had only beaten one team in 11 games - us, twice! Plus, we have a pretty shit record against you.

This is not indicative of any Millwall fans on here but I went to uni with a girl who was mad on Millwall. She was a complete outspoken bitch and thought she knew it all. At the time we went to uni, she was adamant she wanted Jackett out as he was hindering the club's progress. We had so many arguments over this as I was convinced Jackett was doing a really good job to have you stable in the Championship, even if it wasn't always pretty. She used to get the right ump and tell me I was an idiot.

I've lost contact with her now (I'm not unhappy about that) and it pleases me greatly that Millwall have really struggled since Jackett has left just to piss her off. Again, no offence Millwall fans, I hope for your sake it gets better soon.

None of that matters, we are a pathetic excuse of a football team, let alone a 2nd tier one.

You will win to nil.

That 'outspoken bitch' was right. It is disingenuous to lay the blame solely at Holloway or Lomas's door. A holistic approach is needed to understand our current position, and those foundations (or lack thereof) were laid by Jackett towards the end of his reign.

It wasn't specifically for that challenge. He had made 6/7 snidey off the ball challenges and had already been booked for persistent fouling. He then got a 'last warning' twice in 2 minutes in the second half before doing that so the referee sort of had no option. It was stupid of Wells, but if you make that many silly needless challenges you are asking for trouble, especially when the referee has warned you.

I think I speak on behalf of the entire heterosexual lads on here... Was she fuckable ?
