    I actually want Leeds back in the Prem, Forest too. Hate them all you want but those clubs have a lot of history, they should be in the Premiership. I miss some of the derbies of my youth, United v Leeds in particular. That being said nobody has a right to first division football, you have to earn it. Losing to recently promoted Southampton 3-1 isn't helping.

    The Brighton/Doncaster Rovers match was fantastic today, two late goals from Will Buckley to win it for BHA. Great atmosphere throughout at the new stadium. Gotta love FSC Plus here in the states.

    Todays match is West Ham v Cardiff

    Hoping for a draw because West Ham are our main rivals this year in terms of going up

    Expected Ipswich to start stronger than this. Destroyed by Peterborough, that's very poor. Glad to see Palace get three wins on the trot, and a first away win on a Saturday afternoon since two seasons ago. Gonna be at the Palace vs BHA game which should be fantastic if they both stay on this form. The hatred they have for each other is great.

    Slowly moving up the table replacing teams that warrant a mid table finish

    Thats not harsh at all

    after the break we have a tough game with Brum but hopefully 3 points from that game

    @Marky-Plant


    Were you worried by how things started, that Sven might quit? Or would you actually like to see him gone?

    Glad we picked up some great results, We started soo slow and I started to worry if we were gonna turn into the next borough!

    On the back of wiping Direby ass we can look into the brum clash,

    Even when we lost a few on the bounce wasn't calling for svens head

    Matthew Bates could be out for six months | Mail Online

    I feel for this guy, considering how much time he has spent out the game he is a good player and I enjoy watching him play, especially his ranged passing. Must take a lot of determination to keep coming back time and again from such a bad injury, hope can get over this one.

    Good win for Reading.

    ...And I'm starting to feel bad for Cardiff fans. It seems like whoever is the manager the same thing happens at this time of the season.

    The promotion battle is overrated, the bottom end is where its at, much more exciting (unless you go down)

    Well, one bit of good news after today's fiasco - Wet Spam are 3-1 down at home to Birmingham at the moment. So that will allow Reading and Southampton to pull even further ahead for the automatic spots.

    3-3 ain't no good to spam, fooking pray they stay in championship. The money they've spent on players wages is unreal. Think they're in big trouble if they don't get back up.

    Reading march on with a 1-0 win at Brighton. Big big game on Friday against Southampton. As I want both to get promoted, I'd be happy with a draw, assuming Brighton can do a number on Wet Spam on Saturday.

    I would PSML if the Spammers failed to go up even through the playoffs. I can almost imagine the Dildo Twins going into total meltdown when they realise how fukced they are.
