    Its great not being able to moan about how crap we are. 3 wins on the bounce and 1 draw since McCall was sacked. Think Trueman and Sellers have thrown a spanner in the works with appointing a new manager with how they have transformed the team. Can see them getting the job till at least the end of the season now.

    Pulis sacked already just 45 days. I know his style is awful but thats a silly amount of time might as well have just waited til there was a manager available they wanted.

    Put a few wins together in this league and you'll be close to the play offs :D

    Whenever we start looking good, one of our best players gets injured and then we don't look the same :D

    Three home games on the spin now and it'll be the difference to whether we end those games in the top 5 or 19th :joy:

    Chansiri is a complete mentalist. I wasn't a fan of Pulis (who is?!) but sacking him now achieves nothing, we'll just get another yes man in who doesn't know the slackers we call players and won't change anything in the JTW.

    Pulis has clearly had words, and if there's one thing Chansiri won't tolerate it's being given sensible advice about how to run a football club.

    Not being able to stream tonights away game as a season ticket holder because the EFL are classing it as a bank holiday is laughable.

    “He thinks he’s a midfield player, but I’ve told him he's an average midfield player.

    "He’s an excellent centre-half though!”

    3/15 points from Rotherham, Millwall, Preston, Wycombe and Luton. Absolutely pathetic. Fed up of seeing injuries being used as an excuse for these absolutely woeful performances.

    Wish we'd managed 3 points from our recent games against those teams, instead of a paltry 1.

    Still shellshocked after scoring twice in a home game tonight, for the first time in 12.5 months..

    Back to pathetic Boro this week, the bipolar team of the championship.

    Wycombe away next considering they're relegation fodder i reckon they have to be favourites how we lose to the worst teams in the league consistently year after year is impressive.

    The player who scored thr first goal for Scunthorpe i used to play with in high school. Mad to see how far he's come. Anyone watch Scunthorpe here often?

    I don’t think we have a resident Scunthorpe fan in the house, I did the away game when they were in the Championship and we first went down, that was many moons ago now though haha.

    Could be worth keeping an eye on, this website seems to show the league tables as it is on a PPG basis: https://www.footballwebpages.co.uk/league-one/league-table/ppm

    Hopefully it doesn't come to this again but who knows at this point.

    I wonder how they'll handle point deductions. We officially have 16 points but have actually earned 22. So if they base it on 16 points from 22 games we'd be screwed, but if it's 22 points from 22 games and they average the 6 point deduction over the 46 game season as 0.13 PPG and deduct that from our current 1, we'd be on 0.87 PPG and 4th bottom ahead of Forest by 0.01 points.

    No clue, you'd have to assume they'd uphold the punishment in some capacity as otherwise the punishment would have never of existed.

    Crying the game off for COVID when we have eleventy-billion injuries could be Holden’s finest tactical plan to date - not that it’s up against much competition mind.

    @Hicksy2011 I think we're going to sign Lalkovic for a third time :D

    He's just been released and he's just posted a picture of a Walsall shirt on Twitter.

    Wayne Rooney's Derby County now in the relegation zone. Sky Sports doesn't like this.

    Ruffels 2 G + 1A from LB
    Long 3A from RB

    I fear the goal conceded has cost either of them a TOTW though

    McGuane looking quality now @Dizzy Bala

    If he lives up to that potential you will be making a pretty penny on him

    Anyone else grinning like a Cheshire Cat that Rangers are 19 points clear in the SPL. All that noise about ten in a row etc, Gerrards ended it by new year :D
