Football League 2016/2017 - 13th - 15th April


Recommended Posts

The Old Testament states that, according to Austin 3:16; 

'Thou Lord and Saviour shall be crucified to repent our sins, but thou shall be resurrected and thine will celebrate with bunnies, chocolate eggs and football'

Fast forward to 2017 and this tradition is still continued to this day.

Yes, I'm bored.

biggest game in the Championship for me. Blackburn lose and Bristol City/Burton get draws/wins, then that's that for them.

Blackburn must win to give themselves a chance in the other matches that follow. Forest will be on a high having beaten Huddersfield though.

Huddersfield have well and truly helped to fuck up our season handing Bristol City, Burton and Forest 3 points each in recent weeks when they are going for the play-offs. Hope they don't go up.

I'd say that and Newcastle vs Leeds for me in the Championship.

However, Blackburn do have one hope in that they have Bristol City at home after Forest. Basically, Easter will most likely define Blackburn's fate........unless Zola finishes the job.

Orient get relegated this weekend, though probably on Monday and not Friday. I'd say we've finally been put out of our misery with relegation confirmed but the misery will continue whilst the club is in the ownership of Francesco Becchetti. 

Over 100 years of being in the Football League about to be ended due to severe mismanagement. I should be sad about relegation but I come to accept our fate months ago and since then I've just watched another piece of Orient die with each passing week and my sadness actually comes from the fact that this could be the penultimate game I'll see at Brisbane Road whilst this owner is in charge. 

As for tomorrow's game we'll lose. I reckon 4-0.

Blackburn win on the day they needed to. Job done. Now repeat for Monday and it pulls Bristol City right back in to it.

What a win for Fulham, as well. Now the top scorers in the league and Norwich usually do well against any team at home. Got the win with 10 men as well and makes the play-off fight even more exciting.

Imagine if Huddersfied didn't make the play-offs xD. Not sure if it's even possible for that to happen but after cruising in the top 3 for majority of the season, they seem to be running out of steam.

I feel a lot better than I did three hours ago! Not a bad time to score your first goal for a club either. Hopefully Ipswich do us a favour tonight, they could do with a win or else they face getting slightly dragged into the fun too. A win on Monday for us and the last three weeks will be very interesting indeed.

In other news, how the fuck Zola continues to be in charge at Birmingham City confuses everybody in Western civilisation.

Just read Birmingham players confronted each other after the final whistle both on the pitch and in the dressing room. What an utterly awful six months they've had. 2 wins in 23 for Zola, and the first team not to beat Rotherham in two months.

Would be a great story if they went down :ph34r:

It would be quite something, looked reasonable play off candidates under Rowett. Can't recall an implosion of this scale.

Title gone. Only got ourselves to blame. Leeds didn't attack at all 2nd half until we let them at the end. Stupid wank decision to sit deep like that.

Decent performance though. Should have won by 2 or 3 goals. Finishing not clinical enough and Rob Green was excellent.

Stewards thick as pig shit dragging that Leeds mong across the front of the Gallowgate violently goading Newcastle fans. Recipe for disaster, punches and spit flying. Like a scene from Game of Thrones.

My thoughts.

Don't know how it wasn't about 13-0 by the time Roofe crossed and Wood buried that chance. Unbelievable. Story of Newcastle's season?

A valuable point for us albeit, very lucky and not really deserved. We only really created a couple of moments. The Pedraza effort which hit the bar early doors was very unlucky but we should have tried to get him on the ball more because he looked a threat.

Had an 'ok' first half which got progressively worse followed by an absolute terrible second half. We allowed Newcastle to come on to us too much which was a bad move, especially when you are giving Shelvey and Ritchie the ball so much. Our midfield really struggled to get the ball or use it well. Hernandez was a passenger, Phillips was poor.

Clearly we were never going to hold out with the chances and corners Newcastle kept creating. Rob Green was fantastic though. And Pontus Jansson showed why he was in the Football League Team of the Year. Inspired performance.

Credit where it's due, we hung in there. We defended well and we stayed in the game long enough to give us a chance to do what we did. And that is great testament to our team spirit and where it's got us to this point. We are not the best free flowing team in the top 6 but we have got a lot of heart which is why we are so proud this season.

Clinical finish from Wood. Criminal for Newcastle to go to sleep and give him of all people all that space in the penalty area but speaks volumes for the guy to bury his one chance of the game in the 95th minute in front of 50,000 people in a must not lose game.

Given results today, that was a huge moment for us. Four more games to seal the deal. It would be heartbreaking to lose out now.
