Possible that Huddersfield will drop points again.

I think Burton will be tough than a lot of people expect - they're going to come and be tough to break down and got a very good result at the weekend. People think just because they are Burton it'll be a walk in the park - they're far from the worst team in the league and have some players capable of doing something.

Would have thought Brighton will beat Birmingham.

We've sadly left it too late to catch a playoff place because we're on a tear at the minute 

Think you'll win the league next year. As poor a season you've had it's all coming together now and a full pre-season under your belts you'll piss it. 

Said in the other thread but it's going to be an interesting one next season in the Championship.

Another big one for us tomorrow, no excuse for not winning but it won't be easy, they will come and make it hard for us and frustrate the mong home fans. Win tomorrow and then we are 11 points away from the Premier League - assuming Huddersfield win every single game.

Kodjia and Hogan...if they don't win the league next season then something is wrong.

We're on a good run at the moment, beat Leeds 2-0. Lasse Vibe is on a good run of form and coming up with goals that we'd of got from Hogan, at the moment it seems to be him and someone new scoring which is great.

Looking at Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham's fixtures and form if you win every game you might actually make it. No room for a single slip up though.

Won't happen that would be record breaking for us.

I do hope so we're fucked once parachute money goes

Lost it in the first half with a poor performance. Second half we looked a lot better but we are still conceding goals for fun and lost two our centre backs to injuries last night which could rule them out for the season! Thankfully Preston, Wolves and Ipswich did us huge favours by beating Forest, Wigan and Bristol City and hopefully Newcastle will beat Burton tonight.

Something confusing and bizarre has just happened at St James.

We got a penalty. Matt Ritchie scores it. Ref rules it out and gives a free-kick to Burton. 

Have the rules changed? Never seen anything like that in my life.

wtf. was it encroaching? anything in the run -up (that stop start thing)?

Then it should have been retaken according to the rules. Gayle might have been in the box (Ritchie took the penalty).

The ref spend 5 minutes trying to work out what the rules of the game are with the 4th official. Disgrace at this level.

Just now, Romesh said:

yeah as soon as I pressed send I realised encroaching is a re-taken penalty. 

Fuck knows what happened then. Did it hit the woodwork and then Ritchie touched it again?

Nope.

4th official has now just said 3 minutes added on time. Another farce. The game was stopped for ages so they could try and remember the rules. 

Maybe we will find out what the refs reason was at half time.

Really looking forward to hear the reasoning behind the decision...

If there's no real reason.. surely there's a new spot opening on the job market for a championship level referee? 

We'll never hear the reasoning, referees do what the fuck they want and don't have to justify it like managers/players.

One of the most bizarre things I've ever seen.

He will have told the players and Rafa, so they can tell us. He won't have just said free kick sorry I'm not telling you why :rofl:

Refs had an absolute shocker here by all accounts.

Haven't got a clue what's made him think that was the right decision. Even if he thinks he's fucked it up, surely he knows he's missed the boat. What was going through his head when he decided to reverse it?

You think maybe all the refs have got together for a pint of London pride but all they had left was Newcastle brown ale... So they've decided to piss of the Geordies as punishment for not getting thier favoured beverage?

Official statement on what happened by the refereeing body... confirming that the officials did not know the rules. Remarkable at this level. I don't see how not knowing the rules is a lapse in concentration. They discussed it with each other for ages.
