Cardiff and Derby tonight
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:33:05 PM »
Both teams will be looking at these games as must win tonight...

2 upsets tonight and we can forget about the Bolton game... if both teams win, we're going to be under a lot of pressure in the next few weeks, especially with Boro starting to push up the table. They seem like a solid team who will start to push hard for that play-off spot.

Don't want to go into the next 6 games NEEDING a win but it looks like that might be the outcome at this point.

Can you see Cardiff and Derby slipping up tonight?

Having the same surname as your username, NO, I don't think we are related? Realistically I am hoping we finish 5th this season, nothing more and nothing less, though anything more would be more than welcome, don't fancy finishing 6th though!

I have Cardiff I. May bet so unfortunate tonight I want them to nab a goal, maybe have 3 sent off and a few injuries but just finish as winners

I don't really class Cardiff as a team to worry about so much, even though they are up there I don't really rate them as a team. I am more concerned about Derby and Boro, I feel these 2 are very strong teams. I can't see anybody stopping Villa at this point, strong team and on a good run of form... I can't see anybody else getting 2nd.

After Saturday's performance, I can't. We were dreadful. If we play like that against Villa we'll get schooled a good 5-0 thrashing.

Good chance of playing them in the play offs, rather them than any of the others!

Relax take some more phillosan (as I regularly do), mixes well with a stiff drink! No need to worry about Derby, Cardiff, Villa or Wolves, it is the teams below us that we have to worry about, it is in our hands!!

You are right Dave, Preston, Sheff Utd & Boro are the danger.

Don’t forget Oxford and Cambridge in the Boat Race on 24th March.
They have both got to the Final again this year.

We think we are on a good run, afraid we have to notch up a good few more wins  if we are to maintain a top six place whatever other teams do.
