    16/24 points in a 9 game February is very promising - moves us into 6th as well. Will be disappointed if we don’t make playoffs now

    How good is Rob Dickie? Whenever I look at your result on WhoScored he's seemingly always the "statistical" MOTM.

    Very good with both his feet and his head, definitely one of the best centre halves in this league. Apparent interest from Burnley and Southampton so I can see him moving on at the end of the season

    Imagine how dull of a team you need to create to fit him in though, oh you got Luke Shaw, Rashford, Gomez, Sterling etc... thats not boring at all. Just need to squeeze Davinson Sanchez in there for the full ❤️❤️❤️❤️ lineup.

    P.S. as you can see ive been playing too much Rivals lately and im sick and tired of seeing the same old players.

    Johnson is really starting to sound like a bloke who knows the end is nigh.

    You've made 87 changes this season - Lee Bowyer is the only manager that's made more. Is it a case that those players have shown you that if they perform like that, you'll keep them?

    “Yeah, absolutely. You don't want to make those changes. The starting point is that you won't believe what's happened to us this year; there's three books, let alone one, and one day, maybe in five years' time, that'll all come out.”

    If there was a decent Championship English Left-Back I'd have done him, but as it is I can't really fit him into my team.

    There's probably a fun way to make a team with him and that SBC Phillips though, but I'm locked in on so many Untradeable cards now (only tradeable cards I have in my whole team now are Prime Guardiola and ter Stegen) that it'd just be a waste of coins.

    2 hours to kick off and getting nervous
    It’s the hope that kills you :joy:
    Us scoring from set pieces in like 12 of our last 15 games and Arsenal conceding a lot of set pieces recently has convinced me we are going to win this game
    Likely going to be brought down to earth with a bump

    You might be getting Champions League this season, @Lard_Lad but we've taken 2nd off you.

    Alright performance
    I just don’t get Jackett though, why play the first team for four games getting them all tired if you are going to drop them all and not bother in the fifth round
    This is also the second time we played a Prem team this season and in both he’s for absolutely no reason played a lot of people out of position in defence
    Shame the whole game turned from an offside goal mind you

    So are Luton, Wigan and Barnsley but we managed a massive 1 point against all 3.

    Yeah what caged non said 1 point out of 9 against what was the bottom 3. The last time we went to Charlton we got promoted that season and charlton finished bottom. They beat us 2-0 in their easiest win of the season. Dont exactly have high hopes as we struggle badly to score.

    We only got 2 Points off them this season. Although I'm fairly certain that you're the only team in the relegation scrap that we've actually done the double over this season and we've already played everyone twice apart from Wigan.

    Just to remind everyone that it wasn’t actually a joke - we are actually wearing this on Saturday. On Sky. Against a team who will destroy us.

    We haven't destroyed anyone since about October, it's been 1-0 or dropped points for the last couple of months. Even when we went 3-0 up after 30 minutes we ended up hanging on for the next 60 against Huddersfield.

    The way we’ve been playing we are due an absolute pounding at some point and I’ve got a horrible feeling it’ll be on Saturday :confounded:

    It won't be this weekend, would be pretty confident on that. I've said it so many times this season, the way we play we always give teams a chance. Even in the aforementioned going 3-0 up scenario we had against Huddersfield.

    Happy to be proven wrong of course, but there's about a 95% chance it's another tight game where we end up having to rely on Rodak and/or Mitrovic to get us over the line.
