We tend to struggle at Ipswich but hopefully the late equaliser will have deflated them a bit. Can't see any reason why we can't win.

Sounds like there's been some bother in Boro. Surprised there's any Hull fans there.

Or Boro fans for that matter.

Brentford go two up, Reading have taken the lead against Forest and Preston have taken the lead against Villa in one of today's major games.

Eventful end to the first half at 'Boro with goals from Evandro and Bamford, whilst Barnsley's new Manager is having a nightmare as they're now two down against Burton.

Burton 2 up away at Barnsley. Not a good start for Barnsley's new boss. Burton up to 22nd and above Barnsley now.

Brentford making light work of Birmingham. 3-0 just after HT.

Maybe @Danny wasn't losing his marbles when he was talking about the playoffs.

Lee Gregory has equalised for Millwall.

Four for Brentford now. Dean Smith is showing what can happen if you don't sack somebody after a couple of bad results.

Gestede scores again too. Hull are in trouble.

It’s awful again we’ve reverted to type under Bruce. Grealish is why we won 7 on the spin he’s out and it’s back to lump it to hogan mike Bassett style bollocks that only works on teams placed below 8th in this league. Also Onomah is utter gash but Bruce evidently is taking a devil may care attitude to automatic promotion because he insists on trying to polish a turd with the final 1/3 of the season upon us. 

Ive been calling this for 12 months now it’s so depressing, it’s literally like watching a car crash in slow motion

equaliser for Villa! Lewis Grabban converts the penalty to get Villa back on level terms.

Luke Freeman has pulled one back for QPR, and 'The Shift has put Millwall in front.

Barnsley have pulled one back and Brentford have hit five.

Lee Tomlin's equalised for Forest. Heaping more pressure on Jaap Stan.

With four of the bottom five losing its been another great set of fixtures for Bolton providing they hang on @StefBWFC . Reading and Forest dropping points just above them too.

A massive game for Cardiff tomorrow now @Bluebird Hewitt with Villa dropping points.

Crewe scored in the 88th minute to make it 1-0.

Then made a sub in the 91st minute. Then Exeter scored 2 goals in the 92nd and 95th minute to win 2-1. :o

What's the feeling around Villa Park regarding Bruce mate? Obviously you want him gone but is that a common census among the Villa faithful?

Currently the vast majority of villa fans are being spastics who believe that because he’s won 7 on the bounce he’s beyond criticism.

Before that they were for his head. This group are currently shouting down the core who say similar to me, they’ll join us with another bad result. It’s just mob mentality. 

The more astute fan says what I say, he’s limited he holds us back and there’s no plan B which gets found out against a top 8 team. Just look at our results we’d not beaten a top team till Bristol. A half decent manager could have this squad on Wolves heels but alas no we’re parking the bus at home v Preston and pumping it to Hogan because the 18 odd games in which we’ve done that already this season to no avail aren’t enough for a conclusive decision that it doesn’t work.

Check the statistacs. Sacking Dean at any point this season would have been utter madness, complete madness.

Ive said someone is due an absolute tonking from us and it couldn't have happened against anyone other than Brum. Ten times better Harlee 😂 Ollie Watkins with two well needed goals, another goal for Maupay and one for Jozefszoon who has carried us a bit in recent weeks.

I don't hold a grudge against players leaving, it's our business model and it's how we improve. But the grass ain't always greener even if you're getting £20k-£30k more a week now, I think Dean will have wished he hadn't said Brum were ten times better than our play off side as by default they have to be ten times better than we are now...perfect ammunition to put 5 past them

I dont need to. At the start of the season i remember you went something like 8 league games without a win. In the madness of modern day football, managers have gone for less.

Two wins in our first 13 league games, you're right but forget one thing...we have the statistacs and a good owner.

Nothing says rattled like people resorting to calling you tinpot...love it. Birmingham fans en all xD

Wolves away. Not looking forward to this. Out of the games i've seen i'd say they were the only team to comprehensively outplay us for 90 mins, it was men agaisnt boys. Saying that though I wouldnt't put Wolves in your accas, not worth it for the short odds and we've surprisingly got lots of results away from home against good teams - Derby, M'boro, Sheff United, Bristol city. 

No new major injury worries, maybe a bit of rotation. Vrancic in for Leitner and Pinto for Read wouldn't surprise me. The back 3 will continue I'd imagine.  Hernandez in for Murphy would be good too. I'd also happily drop Oliveira for the new lad, Srbeny, but I don't think that'll happen.

After this we have a very winnable run of games, 5 in a row that are all teams below us starting with Bolton at home. They are the kind of games we aren't winning though.

 

2-0 Wolves, urgh.
