Leeds and WBA opening up a big gap ahead of the chasing pack.

Charlton in deep trouble now - dropping and dropping

As Zip said, top two are running away with it but then again last year, on Boxing Day Leeds opened up a 10 point gap on United and they were caught eventually

Only 8 points separate 3rd and 15th so it’s closely congested in that area

I still maintain a good points tally in the next four (10-12 points which is easily feasible) can really push us up to the bounds of the top 6

Did some scouting last night ahead of Saturday - Stoke didn't really need to be at their best to beat what I would consider to be one of the poorest teams to grace the division since Yeovil, Burton and Scunthorpe (in their second seasons).

Shawcross taken off early doors will have been a blow. Ince showed some flashes of brilliance but still very confident we will get a win up there.

Luton's home form keeping them up at the moment, last three away games, scored 0, conceded 13. They must be poor however if they let Tom Ince look good

If you don't rate Tom Ince then you really are seriously lacking in any footballing knowledge

Tom Ince is one of those players who could/should be much better than he actually is.

Would be interesting to see what had happened to him if he had joined Inter or Monaco rather than Hull.

Saw a stat that Wigan have lost 20 points from winning positions, that's crazy bad, Charlton on 17 too

Compared to us who have only lost 2 points from winning positions which to be fair, is a damn good record considering the 2 points dropped were away at the best team in the league in WBA

In contrast, we've gained 6 points from losing positions. So really you can conclude that generally whoever scores first in our games will win unless they're Wigan

Barnsley, a team we drew with, putting 5 past QPR, who beat Birmingham midweek, who beat us last weekend

The Championship is weird

I think I was alone in thinking Barnsley were pretty good at times on weds. Terrible at the back but lively up front

QPR are very inconsistent

Loleeds- though them and wba are so far clear already

Leeds bottle a 3-0 lead against ten men. You love to see it.

They carved through us a few times in the 1st half. Not great at the back though which is the frustration. As a fanbase I think we underestimated them - it was a poor performance, but by no means a bad result
