Didn't realise they're playing Monday night at home to Wolves.  Odds of 4/1 on home win & 3/4 on an away win. Should be a passionate affair & a forgone conclusion surely?

I thought he wrote 100 ways to cook your dog, and DH Lawrence wrote Great Expectations ( Penguin Books ).

Currently watching Birmingham vs Wolves.  1 nil to Wolves so far despite Stockdale's best efforts.  Birmingham look rubbish.  If we don't beat them Saturday I will be beyond disappointed  (I'm trying to be polite!)

David Stockdale is having a good game for Birmingham. Lets hope he has a nightmare on Saturday.

We must be watching a different game, have you watched us lately?? B'ham are being outplayed by a proper team with attacking players, I can remember the days when we used to be like that, last season wasn't it? I expect them to be favourites to win Saturday, we will probably play with 4 full backs and a disguised number 9 and phantom number 10 for a change, that should work!!

Yes Birmingham are being outplayed but it's a dull game and Birmingham haven't done a lot have they? And yes sadly I have seen us play lately but I would still hope we could beat Birmingham.  But then I thought we would beat Burton Albion!

Dave, I didn't see the game last night but what I saw on highlights it could have been 8/9 to Wolves and only Stockdale kept them in the game. We only lost to 2 dead ball situations and in my mind some very dubious referee decisions. So assuming we can beat Stockdale we should win as we are still one of the best footballing sides in the division, just don't mention the finishing.

Referee will be important: they have a physical core( bunch of thugs) to see off Fulham.

The ref will give them some freebies no doubt.  The lad Dean? who got sent off had a permanently vacant expression, not sure if he'll be missed?  Perhaps a role for Cisse if we need a more physical presence?

Bill2:  Ref being one of the best teams in the League apart from the finishing, you missed a bit.  The defending!
