  1. Anything can happen in this league but you can't really look much past Mansfield Town if I'm honest, anyone who finishes above then will have won promotion. Steve Evans is a canny operator he will have them up. Just a word on Notts County, if they can bring in a few players to add to their squad under Kevin Nolan I think they could well mare the play offs. Jon Stead and Ameobi look like they will sign new deals, player of the season Milsom is still with them, Alan Smith too. I also have read they are in negotiations with a player from Forest Green. Their squad seems to be aging but Kevin Nolan knows his shit.
  2. You single Bury out Stevie for relegation but I think the complete opposite. If they can keep James Vaughan and Jermaine Beckford fit, both are injury prone, they stand a really good chance of making the play offs, they will score goals. Vaughan has scored 27 goals in 34 appearances for Bury since signing for them but he is very injury prone. See who else they add player wise but Lee Clark knows the league and is a decentish manager, see how they fare but I think they could well be looking up rather than down.
  3. Brentford are quite interesting, they need to keep hold of Lasse Vibe and Jota if they are to stand any chance, think Jota was out of contract but not signed a new one despite the offer of one. They finished 10th and had a good season. I think they will be feeling chipper about their chances given the promotion of relatively small clubs in recent season to the Premier League. If they can kep hold of the Dane and the Spaniard and add to that with some good signings then I think they have a reasonable chance. All depends who they add though, watch this space.
  4. Sorry lads I've not been on for a while, it's all been a bit of a whirlwind of late but I'm over the moon we've made it to the Premier League, I've waited 33 years for this and it feels good to have made it. I did say Stevie, when you had tipped us for relegation that we'd have a decent season but this is beyond everyone's wildest dreams. I also Blackburn would get relegated too.
  5. Yeah, on curent form we appear to run out of steam, conceded 9 in the last 3 scoring only once, struggling to see where the goals will come from and how we will keep them out to win a game over 2 legs. Ever since the Newcastle home defeat which knocked us about after playing so so well but ended up being mugged by a very street wise Newcastle we've been so inconsistent. I mean we lost at Bristol City 4-0 but battered Norwich 3-0. I'm not confident at all and I do fear for us. Bit of a stat for you here, we've had 8 previous play off semi home legs and never won one. The way we are leaking goals at the minute I'd see what price over 2.5 is.
  6. God Stevie mate you won't have had an easier 3 points this season, you looked way better than we did and if Warnock gets his targets in the summer you'll be going for promotion next season no doubt about that and I'll be backing you in my pre-season patent. I like that Zohore, we could do with someone like him. Decent following too, 500, a few dressed as bananas. You're the only team to do the double over us this season too. I must say if anyone wants to back us, Huddersfield, to win the play offs, I'd say don'the bother we've nose dived of late, we look a shadow of our former selves.
  7. Think it might be a draw tomorrow, two teams just playing out a dead rubber, we'll be looking to avoid Fulham so won't be going full tilt. As I said, probably be a few changes from us tomorrow like last week in readiness for the play offs, although I expect a few of the absentees from last week just to maintain match fitness and sharpness.
  8. I would avoid backing us tomorrow, Huddersfield, we have really struggled of late and I'm expecting a few players rested tomorrow just like we did last week in preparation for the week after.
  9. After today....we're all a bit concerned. Think whatever happens it's been a decent season but it will be cold comfort if we fail to even qualify for the play offs after being there practically from day one. I'm hoping we'll qualify and we'll take it from there. Aside from the 98/99 season this is the closest we've ever come to regaining our top flight place since we left in 1972. I'm hoping we don't go into the final fixture against your lot needing a win to secure our place in the end of season shake up. Them 3 Town players you mention are all club legends.
  10. I know it's not the done thing to back against your own team but I wouldn't be surprised to see Fulham beat us today, they seem to make light work of anyone who tries to play their own game against them, bit like us really, it's against the stragglers that dig in and make it hard for them that they have trouble and at 9/5 think they are worth backing. We seem to have totally lost the plot of late, losing to Bristol City and Burton, scraping home against Preston and drawing down at Derby in one of the most boring games ever with the use of the most boring tactics. We seem to have given up on automatic promotion weeks ago, which has annoyed me as Newcastle are just stumbling over the line with no pressure from anyone. Fulham 9/5 Scunthopre 6/4 travel to seemingly doomed Swindon who need to win today but Scunthopre have a slim chance of automatic promotion and have won 3 on the bounce and maybe can be backed again with a bit of confidence. Lastly into League Two with Accrington who are in top form but it's too late for the play offs but will be looking to finish the season on a high in preparation for next season. They take on Newport County who took a right caning at Plymouth on Monday. Fulham 9/5, Scunthorpe 6/4 and Accrington 5/4 pays 14's.
  11. They don't let away fans in there, although when we tried to get in it was for a County game, do they let away fans in for Forest games?
  12. There are some big prices on Ipswich and Villa today, both 4/1, should they really be riced so highly? Newcastle are stumbling towards the finishing line and Fulham seem better away from home. Ummm I'm not sure them two games are both done deals for the favourites.
  13. Sky Bet have Plymouth at 9/2 at Pompey, no way should they be that with their away record. Plymouth are 4 points in front of Pompey and a place higher in the league and i'm struggling to see why they are priced so highly. Plymouth won at Doncaster recently are very good away from home. At that price they cannot be ignored. Notts County have won 4 on the spin and seem a different proposition under Kevin Nolan and he has really turned them round, winning last time out at promotion chasing Carlisle. They are away at Crewe today and at 6/4, although not overly generous, we'll take them. Lastly Coventry 19/10, deffo seen an upsurge in results since Mark Robins cam back to manage them, winning the FL Trophy and getting some results in the league. They take on Charlton at home. Plymouth 9/2, Notts County 6/4 and Coventry 19/10 pays 38's....a slim chance with this one.
  14. A lot of daft results today this is epitomised by Sheffield Wednesday leading 2-0 against Newcastle as we speak
  15. Todays bets are picking themselves, no need for too much strenuous home work here, everyone is all over Derby and I'll jump on the bandwagon at 11/8 thats too tasty to pass up. As described, Rowett has them galvanised and will be no doubt pumped up about the perceived injustice of his sacking at St Andrews. Wolves have won 5 on the bounce and travel to the pretty hapless Bristol City who after a mini revival of 2 consecutive wins have totally lost the plot again losing 2-0 at Brentford and taking a right pounding 5-0 at Preston midweek, can't see anything here but an away win and at 9/5, we got to be on that. Aston Villa 5/4 make the short hop geographically to Burton. Villa who have seen a real upturn in form of late winning the last 4 and conceding no goals in this period either. Be interesting to see how Villa cope with them, Burton just make themselves a real pain in the arse to play against, continually time wasting, niggly fouls, feigning injury and jet being an all round pain in the arse, as my team found out to their cost last week. Lastly, going to include Newcastle 7/5 away at Wednesday who are no great shakes and are in real danger of losing their play off spot to Fulham. Newcastle are hardly in sparkling form either seemingly stumbling their way to results and to the finish line, although they are still getting those results and their away form is unbelievably good. Derby 11/8, Wolves 9/5, Aston Villa 5/4 and Newcastle 7/5 pays 34/1
