    All kicking off on Talksport about us and Derby.. Mel Morris is as slimy as a politician, but i fear Gibson's crusade is doing nothing but serve to embarrass the Boro.
    I agree with this, most people probably agree Morris is a sneaky bugger, but Gibson is just going out of his way and looks obsessed at this point.

    Jefferson Louis signs for Hampton & Richmond Borough - making that his 38th different club. Surely nobody makes it close to big Jeff?

    Listening to what they said it is shady as hell, Morris is claiming the company he sold it to is an events company so they hold events during the season, rather than just at seasons end, what a load of rubbish.

    Also it was listed as a 40m asset on the books but was sold for 80m to the shell company. Someone also told me they had Jacob Butterfield (thats Jacob Butterfield in case you missed it the first time) listed as a 12m asset but then let him go for free.

    The whole thing is dodgy.

    Interested to see how we get on tomorrow. West Brom are unbeaten and have the players to punish us if we give them a chance. Arter's suspended as well, so there's a risk our midfield of (presumably) Reed, Cairney and Johansen will leave the defence too exposed.

    Should be a good game though. We just need to play to our "top" level that we've only really reached against Millwall so far if we want to get a result.

    After an age off and still not playing tomorrow we finally get back to league 1 action on Tuesday, after a much needed break

    Go on Malone.

    I still can't get my head around why he actively chooses to look so ugly. Awful haircut and an awful beard.

    Think he had a top knot at one point before he joined us, so it could be worse.

    Very little football being played in this Derby match.

    Didn't expect much else. Cardiff are happier without the ball playing on the counter and Derby must be really low on confidence. If there is a winner it'll be from one moment of individual quality like that Waghorn run or a mistake.

    Sounds as though Cocu dropping Matt Clarke for no reason earlier in the season has shot his confidence completely
    Classic good management there

    Chris Martin's scoring the winner isn't he. Would be hilarious.

    How has Tom Lawrence managed to get 5 Yellows from 7 games when he's a winger?

    Thought it was going to happen then.

    Even then 5 from 7 is ridiculous. I wouldn't even expect Johansen to get that sort of ratio, and his primary job is seemingly just to kick people to stop counter attacks.

    That's like Colback levels of rule breaking.

    Could really do with a win today.

    So after being concerned about a Reed, Cairney, Johansen midfield being too attacking we’re playing Bobby Reid instead of Johansen. Hoped Rodak would start as well.

    @NornIron young lad Teggart doing well for us in a hybrid senior/youngsters team against a strong Norwich u21 team

    Good lord our kids play better football than our senior players

    Bettinelli costing us points again. Imagine my shock.

    Annoyed about Bettinelli, but a draw with West Brom isn’t the end of the world. And we pretty much battered them for about 70 minutes before we ran out of energy and let them back into it.

    Parker needed to bring on Johansen for Bobby Reid and let him start kicking people to break up the game before they got the goal.

    Oh my days I’ve just found out Benjani Mwaruwari’s son is in our under 16s and it might be the greatest thing I’ve heard in years
    Oh my god he’s called Benjani Jr, this is unbelievable

    Ryan Leonard still somehow starting. Honestly Sheffield United must've been **** themselves laughing that we actually forked out any sort of money for him, let alone the reported £1.5m.
