    Ticking along very nicely under Rowett. I think we're a decent goalscorer away from really giving the playoffs a good go.

    4 in a row 8 more to go
    Sitting quite comfortably in the play offs now
    8 wins or maybe even 7 could steal that last auto place but it’s a huge ask
    Just got to try and get through the next four and reassess the situation, we do have ludicrously easy fixtures

    Maybe first year
    Not sure anyone cares about you any more than Hull us or Ipswich tbh

    I’d definitely consider your lot bigger but that may be geographical as well

    Shay McCartan signed a new 2 year contract with us tonight, been the best player in the league and turned down offers to go Full time in our league and England as he loves playing for us.
    Never see this loyalty anymore especially in our league.

    I take back whatever I said about us making a late splash for autos
    Only got 3 fit players for the forward four positions in our team and none on the bench to cover
    In fact down to about 16 fit players overall
    Not good

    It’s honestly not worth even watching this sport at league one level with the refs
    embarrassing

    I stopped caring about the season a while ago but Betinelli is just shocking how he got in an England squad at any point in his career is just beyond me.

    I’ll always love this club, but if they don’t sort this refereeing situation out I can see myself stopping caring about football very quickly
    Once again today summed up by Raggett passing the ball out to Daniels, gets clattered really late (by a Burton player who should have been sent off before this) ref somehow gives a free kick to Burton
    Raggett goes off injured and they stick the free kick in the top bin and it costs us points
    Down to about 14 fit players now, we’ve just been beat up so badly with no protection in recent weeks, had to substitute 3 of our back 4 again today

    Oh and now they’ve said Jacobs has become our third attacker in the last few weeks to have his season ended and need an operation by a very poor challenge on him
    I give up

    I paid to watch the Bournemouth game and Woodgate smirking on the sideline has ended it for me..l will not be taking any notice whatsoever.

    The Boro are embarrassing, when Leicester won the Prem their season started 10 games before the end of the previous one, where they went on a run, built massive momentum then steamrollered into the summer and subsequent season.

    How our band of absolute muppets can’t understand the way momentum works is beyond me.

    It was a fantastic free kick
    Looking like Marquis is out for the season now too
    So glad lots of teams voted for us to only have 22 man squads this year

    its a weird one for our league because everyone has been shockingly bad this year
    85 points might win the title when 5 teams got that point total a couple of seasons ago
    I love Lewis-Potter over Honeyman for Hull, or they might just go Wilks for the goals
    maybe Dion Sanderson over McGeady?
    Jephcott maybe missing too or Yates

    It’ll be interesting to see where things end up with the official TOTSs too
    Because someone like Harness has been generally quality but he’s only got 7g 8a because under Jackett he was basically playing RB half the time haha

    Yeah when we were a bottom half championship team we ended a season really well and ended up in the playoff final the year after. Results breed confidence we look ready to stagnate to the end of this season and knowing us probably most of next.

    It’s not looking great is it.

    And I just caught the Matchday roundup on YouTube but from a Barnsley perspective, Warnock congratulating them at the end and essentially giving them a team talk about going up, it’s all down to earth etc but seeing as how pathetic we were it doesn’t sit right for me.

    I really fear where we will be come August, we don’t even own a proper keeper.

    At this point I think no goalkeeper might be better than bettinelli. From the few times i watched archer for millwall he was awful too but id rather he played atm. However much can be taken from xg model the gazette had an article about how we've conceded far more than the model predicts. The article pretty much says we defend well but our keeper is that bad it doesnt matter.

    Every team that has ever done anything in football had a good keeper or at least a competent one. And it’s no coincidence that our successes have stemmed around a good one too.

    can't believe after the start we had we have messed up this much, such a missed opportunity this year. Will probably lose Olise, Richards and possibly Joao amongst others so not seeing how we get better from here

    I still think Dimi was just a solid keeper not spectacular but considering we got him as 3rd choice what a player he was for us.

    You can see why we dont score many goals even when we have a few really good chances we're so bad in front of goal.
