    Think it was too much to expect Arter to have two good games in a row.

    The quality of that pen almost made up for how soft it was

    Just realised the ref in this game who gave that pen is the same ❤️❤️❤️❤️ that didn’t give us our one for holding from a cross in the first leg of the play offs

    Say what you want about Lee Johnson, but him turning Bobby Reid into a 20 Goal Striker is looking like a miracle.

    And it was a complete accident. We had failed to recruit anyone and an injury meant it was him or the tea lady.

    I still can’t quite believe we got £10m for someone who 90% would have happily released on a free 12 months prior.

    Can the tea lady play centre mid?

    I heard she is the front runner for the manager’s job. She’s used to dealing with a massive bunch of mugs.

    Well that evens it out if the one in the 1st Half was soft.

    Well that’s Fulham confirmed in the play offs then mathematically
    Of course there could be some serious bottling ahead of them

    Decent win in the end. Mathematically guaranteed Play-Offs, will take some effort from Forest to knock us out of having the Home Leg second. So we can just fully go for it in these last 3 games and see where we end up. Thought Hector was lucky to not be sent off in the end, was giving away some stupid fouls when he was on a Yellow.

    My hope now is we just have the attitude of nothing to lose, Parker takes the handbrake off and we just go for it. Because we quite literally have nothing to lose now.

    Also feel like it's worth pointing out that as soon we got Partizan Ultra buzzcut Mitrovic back he starts bagging.

    Fifa wormhole for me, spent all night getting 3 wins to earn Fernandes and Mendy special cards... really fun coming up against relegator scum in Div 7/8/9 every game.

    Think I’ll get back to farming again tomorrow after that lol, it feels more Yorkshire at least.

    Plus I now know what it feels like when yanks complain about pairing up with horrible snide Mexicans... I get little baghead jocks all night with Celtic and Rangers badges.

    It looks like Leeds are going to go up automatically. They can put some daylight between them and 3rd with a win against Swansea.

    I'm not sure on Brentford and WBA. Feel like WBA have the better squad but they have a mistake in them. They have similar level run-ins over the four games but I can't see Brentford's momentum getting slowed.

    Fulham are minimum playoffs and I think with only 9pts left to play for, there's not enough of a swing to hold back Brentford and unseat either WBA/Leeds.

    A win for us tomorrow would probably put us a point or two away from playoff assurance. 5th is probably a really good shout for us to finish the season barring a total collapse or some great form. We could only really get better GD than Fulham and they're 8pts off us.

    As for 6th, honestly seems like no-one wants it. Cardiff lost. Can't see Derby, Blackburn or Swansea winning over the weekend. Tomorrow is a massive game for Millwall, a win for them would likely take them 8th and 2pts off Cardiff.

    Honestly even Bristol City could get right back into it with a win.

    Nah our season's done pal. Even if we do win tomorrow we have Preston on the last day and we NEVER beat them

    Imagine playing FIFA in July.

    Popped up on the Xbox homepage, there are still people beavering away on ultra defensive doing drag backs, quite sad. Drew a game 0-0, people causing that need to be shot

    Don’t know why this game has his sights set low, obviously Pep is the main target followed by Klopp

    That’s Bournemouth and Villa down.

    Yeah, think these two results have just sorted the Bottom 3. Especially if Villa and Bournemouth don't win this weekend.

    Also if WBA and Leeds both fail to win, in reasonably tough away games, then the top 3 race could still take some interesting twists.
