I have and I'm in!!
Richard Keogh sacked by Derby. Considering the two with criminal convictions have just been allowed to carry on, he's got serious grounds for appeal. Whilst he shouldn't have done what he did, he's the least culpable and yet has had the worst consequence both personally and in terms of his career.

Wait, the other two are probably worth north of £10m to Derby while Keogh is 33 and coming to the end of his contract. That explains a lot...
If we get 10 points clear of the drop I'll start to relax, but that's 7 unbeaten, 4 wins and 4 clean sheets in that time, and without playing particularly well. Good signs for the future. We've turned a 5-point deficit on the side in 21st into a 4-point lead over the side in 22nd in just 7 games. Tough games to come (PNE (a), Birmingham (h), Swansea (h), Bristol City (a), Leeds (h)) but it's better to face these with some points in the bag and confidence growing.
Finally, a game with goals! Many thanks to Peterborough players for putting two in their own net as our players have struggled with the concept of scoring goals of late. Big man Gnanduillet got the others, so no change there! Hopefully we push back on from this now.
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

I've just seen Ledson's tackle on Elphick, which looks to have ruled Elphick out for the season. It is a disgraceful 'challenge'. Actually, let's call it what it is: grievous bodily harm with intent. Bouncing ball that Ledson's never getting to. Elphick clears, at which point Ledson comes straight through him with a locked, straight leg, studs showing. The force is enough to spin a 13-stone centre-back around and rupture knee ligaments, potentially ending his season.

It's an appalling, appalling tackle. Even in the cold light of day, without the immediate heat of battle, I think it's pre-meditated. You don't challenge with a locked knee for as long as Ledson does without intent. It's not that he's brought his leg up and challenged, he starts high and kind of kung-fu kicks through Elphick. Even though the ball is a couple of feet off the ground, he's still challenging down on the ball which is coming across him - it's not a stretching, lazy leg. It's a strange challenge to make by anyone who doesn't intend to go through a player with force.

On 3 counts, it's a straight red. Excessive force is the main one for me - he's come in from a long, long way away, never getting within a light year of the ball and still arriving with the force to spin someone twice his size. His knee is locked and you can see it on the follow through - if he'd challenged normally, there'd have been some give there, with two players just colliding and no injury. Then there's the studs up - again, he's a long way away and perhaps if he'd been trying to get a toe on the ball there'd have been the give for injury to not have occurred. As it was, the give was in an as-yet unspecified ligament in Tommy Elphick's right knee. At 31, it may be the sort of injury that's tough to come back from. Fingers crossed it isn't.

It's left us without our most experienced defender, perhaps for the season. He's played a big part in our recent turnaround, being the man who can physically compete with players at the back, leaving the reading of the game to Schindler. For all he isn't the world's most comfortable in possession, he'll be a very big miss when there's a lack of physical presence at the back. We just don't have (courtesy of poor transfer business) anyone else like him to step in. Stankovic is a fine ball-player, but he's not a rough and ready defender, ready for the battle of the Championship. I actually prefer Stankovic in midfield.
God damn it, 2-1 up away at Portman Road and we give away a penalty to finish 2-2. Still never won here in the 13 years I've lived here!

No fixture for us this weekend as it would've been against Bury.

Glad to see Ryan Hardie scored on his debut for Plymouth. Hoping he finds some form there and comes back to us stronger!

Roll on Tuesday then and the cup replay. Already got my tickets but not expecting a great game. Current form is awful. Glad to see Hardie bagging. Hopefully his loan will be like when we loaned Matty Phillips to Sheffield United. He came back a much better player and banging them in!

PS - where did you get your avi from please?

If we couldn't beat Reading reserves in the original tie I don't hold out much hope for the replay. Who knows though, maybe Bola will mark his return with a win - assuming he can play in the cup?

As for the avatar - hammer9 made it and his request thread is here - https://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/186/susie-avatars-kit - Got the blue away kit for Xmas

We SHOULD have beaten them had Gnando just smashed his penalty - or at least had a better chance had he not tried a panenka... Guess I will find out tonight if it was worth buying tickets lol.

Cheers. I will have a look in there now. I have both, got both on release day, went a bit crazy in the shop now I can. Was handy as I had to queue up for the away one after work til closing time at the shop, but then got to wear it to Dortmund vs Bayern the following day (love early flights haha). I have also worn it to the San Siro this season.
Well, finally the board realised that Larry Grayson lost his powers when the last of his hair went and we got rid of him. David Dunn now in caretaker charge and I don't think he wants the job, results aren't any better under him either so please don't give it him. Don't know who we can attract at the moment though!

Phew, a last minute winner against Ipswich means I can go to work this week with a smug grin!

Gutted we missed out on appointing Karl Robinson. Betting seems to be suspended now as Alex McLeish lurks around Bloomfield. Not for me, personally. Seems he is not even in this year's FM database!

Me again! Looks like we have got Neil Critchley from Liverpool U23s to be our new manager. Happy with this, unexpected as it was! Much better appointment than Larry.

In other news, didn't realise Boro were bottom three at the mo!

Middlesbrough, Stoke and Huddersfield all being in the Championship relegation battle has caught me by surprise, even if I'm aware all have by themselves had crap seasons.

Think its safe to say that so far, Woodgate for Pulis at the Riverside hasn't worked out.

Well that was fucking awful. Credit Wigan, came and did a great job on us. We were powderpuff and short on ideas, they were physical, organised and bullied us. A well-earned win for them. I'm seriously worried about us.

I don't mean this in a harsh or cruel way, but this man will die as a manager of a football club. Hasn't he retired about three times now? I used to think the same about Harry Redknapp but I don't think he'd go lower than the Premiership these days whereas Warnock would manage a Sunday league team.

Thanks for that, ref. Absolutely shafted us there. Denied a stonewall penalty at 0-0, sends off Bacuna for absolutely nothing, knows he's fucked us, awards us a nothing penalty with the game gone at 3-0. Cheers. Thanks a bunch.

Hull are a club in trouble all over the place.

They made a huge mistake offloading Grosicki and Bowen in January, but blimey this is a complete catastrophe from Hull.

I see Wigan are trying a pretty big way to take out their agitation at the administration and the forthcoming deduction.

Well we're back to being a basketcase because the chairman has decided to go on a power trip.

Great. Just when we need a bit of stability and have the chance for it.
The Championship's final day was insane. Impressive amount of position swapping.

I feel Brentford will deeply rue their last two games!!

Not going into the playoffs with momentum at all.
Who do we see as winning the Championship Play ~Offs then?

This may seem slightly surprising but I am going to say Fulham because they have been in a play off final before and Brentford seem to bottle it in big and important matches like we saw vs Stoke and Barnsley

Yeah I'm the same as KodjiaMaster. I imagine Fulham will have the bottle and squad for it unfortunately, would love to see Brentford in the Premier League. Don't know why, but I like the way they've played football the last few years and would also be interesting to see how Ollie Watkins would handle the step up.
I can buy the argument about Swansea beating Brentford - the way they overwhelmed the gap to Forest is a much more positive backstory to making the play-offs than Brentford blowing a genuine shot at automatic.

Cardiff are in my opinion the outsiders. Which could lead to them getting promoted because that seems to happen every now and again.

Pretty much my thoughts. Fulham to win but would love to see Brentford go up!

well done to the Swans with a 1-0 win fingers crossed they can get to the play off final, would love to see an all Welsh one
