How are we all feeling about them now? I remember pre-season tonnes of people saying they were gonna win the league, promotion straight back up the divisions as champions. Their entire ethos last year was not to overspend, maybe go down, but invest then to going straight back up or something. … but so far
For Wednesday with the 6 point deduction you need to do it slightly different to work it out properly for a final position, as currently the whole seasons penalty is applied to half the games. We have ‘earned’ 25 points from 23 games, which would be equal to 50 points over the 46 games. Then
I’m a 21 year old Leeds fan so our promotion was probably the best moment in my life (football or not) and it led to days of celebration, but I was wondering how it feels if you’ve been promoted then relegated then promoted again? Obviously it’ll still feel great but it won’t feel like years
It’s amazing how consistent the distribution of points is. Taken at match 23, Norwich are only 3 points off the total of the league leaders last year. 6th place is only 3 points above 6th place last year. Midtable at 12th is within 3 points of what it was last year. Last place is within

Defensively I’ve not seen a Swansea side better since the days of Ashley Williams and Chico Flores. Considering this wasn’t even our best defence tonight and we managed to keep out with ease one of the most in form teams in the league is saying something. 13 goals conceded is incredible. If we add that
Not really sure what to do now. 10 years of shithousery (mostly at Ashton Gate, and not including the 5-0 at Deepdale) and we’ve actually won a game against Preston. Sounded like we controlled the first 20 and the last 20 (after Massengo came on) but completely switched off and stopped playing in between. Pleased
We were absolutely dreadful for 70 minutes, can’t blame the pitch as Stoke played us off it in the first half and should’ve had us finished. Johnson was poor and has been for a few games now, a spell in the bench is what he needs. Someone has to take charge of our back line
I’ll admit that part of me would find it hilarious if Wayne Rooney’s Derby County got relegated. But we’re clearly not going up this year, and hopefully not going down either, so losing one of the highlights of another season in the Championship would be a shame.
I don’t think you can put it down to luck, we picked up an awful lot of points from late goals 2 seasons ago as well. It’s mostly fitness and the ability to keep plugging away looking for a goal, the other team gets tired and more likely to make a mistake
In before the highlights..not 100% but think Richard Wood WAS offside for Rotherham v Derby. I’m not convinced Ihiekwe gets the flick which would have “reset” the offside line (though I don’t think the linesman is aware of that and he’s given it for the wrong reason.
I’m calling Connor Roberts for best RB. 2 goals and 4 assists, only 12 outfield players have more assists and Toffolo is the only defender to have more. He’s second in the league for Key Passes per minute – only behind Buendia. Played every minute of the Championship so far, there’s only 3 other outfield
slightly confused, is josh gould not supposed to be our backup? thought we just recalled him from his loanjust thought it was weird we recalled him only for him to be third-choice here (unless his loan was going badly) edit: actually i didn’t realize benda’s injury was bad enough that he needed surgery so i
What does this mean for the takeover? I thought he was only being permanently appointed when the takeover was done, but only yesterday there were stories about having to sell youngster to pay wages etc. but surely that wouldn’t have to be the case if the takeover was nearly done? Only thing that could be
