    40 points before the end February, did not expect that. Pretty much safe now, what a season so far. Really should have won yesterday though had more than enough chances. Gotta start converting them if we want Europe.

    Rory Gaffney has left. Get in.

    Hadn't played in months and he was one of our biggest earners as we had to pay his wages whilst on loan.

    Hopefully that means we can get someone else in.

    0-3 at home, one shot on target (89th minute) and conceded moments after the opposition went down to ten men.

    Opening line from Johnson, post game?

    “I didn’t think there was much in it”.

    Around 2-2.5k a week.

    Pretty sure we were paying it all and the reason why he never left last month was because we would have had to pay out money to release him from his loan.

    Theres a very strong chance we're going down 1 point out of 9 in 3 consecutive games against the bottom 3. Was in Porto at the weekend so no idea if we were as bad as we were against luton. Leeds tomorrow night is a terrifying prospect.

    Today is another good indicator that all of the teams at the top of the Championship bar West Brom have seen VAR and gone "Nah, you're alright".

    Spent millions on a league 1 team to get 30% possession at home against the team in 22nd
    All while having alienated all of our best players and selling all of our best youth players because they are ‘too inexperienced’

    Cardiff signing him while they were in the Prem has to have been some dodgy agent deal or something.

    Feel like that can be said about most teams this season. I know it's probably said every year, but this is genuinely the worst overall standard I've seen in the Championship since we got relegated in 2014. West Brom didn't win a game for a month and they're still running away with the league.

    Most Fulham fans are genuinely baffled that we are where we are when we've genuinely played well in about 5 games this season. We're just lucky we've got a genuine difference maker like Mitrovic I suppose.

    Honestly, we don't know how we're 7th either. If we didn't have Dan Bentley (barring the odd mistake) we'd be struggling massively

    On paper, this season was yours and West Brom's to lose. West Brom aren't gunna falter now, they've reinforced in January and it's going to see them over the finish line.

    I actually think that the league is more interesting when you've got teams constantly climbing over one another. We've not been out of the top six since Boxing Day and based on games in 2020, we're top of the league. We've thrown away the Charlton and QPR games, plus before tonight we'd not won in three games.

    Beyond West Brom, I'd say any two from Leeds, Forest, Fulham, Brentford, Preston, Bristol City, Blackburn, Swansea, Cardiff and Millwall have a chance at 2nd and winning the playoff.

    This time last year we were 8th with Martin O'Neill as manager and the year before we were 15th, I'm along for the ride at this point.

    any reason why kasey palmer isnt playing regularly for you ? he was bloody class when we had him on loan from chelsea not as good as Emile Smith Rowe like but still quality . Is it lack of form or does the dwarf just not like him ? was well chuffed Eliasson didmt start for you he tore us a new one last time we played you.

    It’s honestly the biggest grift in history that we’re in the top half let alone somehow still inexplicably only 3 points from 6th.

    Absolute rubbish served up consistently for two years now with the occasional jammy result delaying the inevitable annual collapse from a position of strength to a lukewarm fizzle come the end off the season.

    Four years and still hasn’t got a clue what his best team or system looks like. He’s had about seven transfer windows and still says he hasn’t got what he needs in the squad despite having more money than any manager in our history by a country mile.

    Bangs on about ‘identity’ like we actually have one. Beyond ‘turgid lifeless crap’ there’s not a shred of identity about us. Players look like complete strangers who have absolutely no idea what they’re being asked to execute.

    He’s been fairly crap when given the chance to be honest. I don’t know why signed him given he didn’t really impress on loan either.

    To be fair to him he had a good partnership going with Afobe and I’m sure he could have one with Wells. I won’t write him off until I see him under a coach that actually sets out to play attacking football, so probably when he leaves here.....

    Johnson acting like a child when he gets found out, imagine my shock. Normally the beginning of the end when you start being a twunt with the press.

    Wouldn’t have started Arter, Bryan, Cairney or Knockaert tonight. So good team, apart from... a quarter of the team.

    Mitrovic is absolutely top drawer at everything except pens. That’s what we’ve learned today.
