Second half was all us until Vieira's red card. They look reasonably strong defensively and then have several players with the quality to find a goal out of nothing - similar to us at our best last season albeit we only had Wood, the occasional bit of brilliance from Pablo or Bartley/Jannson from a corner.

Could do with Wolves absolutely running away with the division and beating all the teams around us. Don't think there is a great deal of difference in any of the rest of the teams from 2nd place down to 24th so certainly nothing for us to be afraid of if we make the play-offs. Contrast to last season where if we'd made the play-offs Huddersfield and Fulham looked really good and would probably have beaten us.
Well surprisingly I agree with all that :wink:

majority of results going our way today and Middlesborough still under-performing. Monk may be regretting not taking a year contract at Leeds as he may not last a full year at Boro.... (admittedly if he does get sacked he will no doubt walk away with a fortune having probably got a 3 year contract)

Hull played well in their last two matches even though they lost at Cardiff yesterday since the appointment of Nigel Adkins so the codheads game could be a tricky one !

Hopefully we cage the tigers....RA RA RA !

Regardless of what Villa and Sheff Utd do we are in the Playoffs at Xmas.

Hope QPR win.

Cardiff are on a bit of a slide, no wins in 3 including back to back defeats.

Preston are doing well, 3 wins 2 draws last 5 games.

But Cardiff have a better defender then Virgil Van Dijk in Sol Bamba according to Colin so thats alright then . . . .
