    Anyone in here left their team's ground before the end of a game before? For footballing reasons only I mean, other factors could be understandable.

    Twice. When we were 3-1 down to Sunderland in the 13/14 season and Senderos had just made Jozy Altidore look like Messi and given away a penalty. Was out of the ground before Adam Johnson buried it for his Hat-Trick.

    Other time was either when we lost 5-1 to Bournemouth or 5-0 to Jokanovic's Watford, both at home. Can't remember which one, both the same season and about two months apart and have just sort of blended into one.

    Actually, wait, three times. Left before the end of the FA Cup replay with Sheffield Utd but that was partially because there was a tube strike. Might have hung in there if the game wasn't absolutely horrific with the weather matching to boot.

    This game will make or break our season. This is a real test of character, need a huge performance on Wednesday. First 70 mins we were great. Then we implode.

    No, the only time I ever considered it was on the night they gave out the red scarves, seeing the stadium in red made me feel physically sick.

    I normally walk down the steps on 90 and watch the rest stood at the entrance to the stand (or on TV in the concourse) but if there is something at stake just stay in the seat.

    Massive result considering we only decided to turn up in the 70th odd minute. Jedinak is finished, terrible decision from Smith to start him. Hourihane is also the biggest fraud in English football. Not even surprised at referee decisions these days.

    Tammy first player in nearly 40 years to score 20 league goals for us, what a player.

    If Alty beat them tomorrow and York beat Ashton the bottom three will be all but sown up. If we then beat Ashton next week and FCUM two weeks after that it’ll be certain.

    So, January's two best sides meeting at Ewood today, looking forward to the inevitable 0-0 :D

    Still not over last night, cannot be throwing leads away last night if we want a chance at promotion.

    But one positive is Billy Sharp, what a player, he looks quicker and stronger then he has all career and scoring for fun. 22 goals for the season is a massive achievement for a whole season, to have scored that many by early February is ridiculous.

    Could do with a win today against Plymouth, not least to shut that total **** Adams up

    Today is a must win for us, could see us move out of the bottom 4. I'm missing it today as well and the last few games I have missed have been belters that we have won. Hope that continues today.

    Changed the game when he came on against Brighton to be fair to him. But he is pretty much useless.

    I haven’t watched much PL this season but from what I have seen I can’t believe quite how bad you are for how much you’ve spent

    Part you’re missing is we spent it horribly. One PL quality defender out of 100m and he got injured putting his boots on. I’m genuinely not sure if we thought we could come up and outscofe the teams around us, and we’re surprised that they’re capable of defending or what...

    We’re still playing Odoi and Ream, and to make it better the player we signed to play CB in Nordtveit isn’t even fit apparently. Sums up how we’ve done transfers this season.

    We should have a decent defence in the Championship to build on though. Nobody is signing any of them based on this season.

    I turned ifollow off in the 85th minute when we were 3-0 down to Southend, does that count?

    What’s your thoughts on Bryan so far? Seems he’s still making all the same kinds of defensive errors he made with us, switching off and not staying with runners and always failing the offside trap

    Bringing on Cyrus Christie for a winger at 2-0 down. Should get an evaluation let alone a couple of people chanting.

    Decent enough cross on him, but him getting caught at the back post has cost us points multiple times this season. Wolves immediately springs to mind.

    Think Bryan and Le Marchand could do well in the Prem with a better defensive unit around them. There’s no hope for Odoi, Ream or Christie.

    We need to keep Mawson next season and build the defence around him (and keep him fit).

    I never quite understood the Ranieri appointment
