Forest are currently somehow contriving to draw against a 9-man Newcastle side, despite being gifted two penalties. :|

Watching this. Forest are utter dog shit. Really quite dreadful. The funny thing is I can see the Geordie twats getting a winner.

Forest grab one of the worst goals I've ever seen. This would leave the door somewhat alarmingly open for us tomorrow :?

Reminded me of Reading playing 8 man Yeovil and still struggling to create anything....

Brighton v QPR. Not expecting anything other than about a 4-0 win for Brighton. One of those annoying games you wish both teams could lose although i'll be hoping the fakes can dig out a miracle from somewhere to get at least a point.

Just seen probably the softest sending off in football history.

Brighton play the ball forward, QPR defender comes across, a bit of a coming together, red card for QPR defender :|

There is no way that was a clear goal scoring opportunity, it was probably a foul and maybe a yellow card at a push because he has the keeper to beat with another defender coming across, but a red?

Despite the Sky commentator jizzing his pants about Brighton I didn't think they were all that today, and I think Chris Hughton was as gracious as to admit this in victory. Bong, with the stupid name and hair, looks like an accident waiting to happen, and I think they need to strengthen quite a bit in January because a couple of injuries and they will not go up automatically. Newcastle have much more strength in depth and I could see Villa still making a late run, Derby, or even Norwich with a change of manager, nicking one of the auto spots.

Team of the season announced... in mid March :|

Not bothered about there being no Reading players in (although Al-Habsi is surely worth a shout) but it's an odd one. 4-3-3? Scott Malone? No Ritchie?

Barnsley's 2nd goal yesterday was one of the most satisfying to watch in some time.

We all know that goals always look better when they go in off the crossbar but this one hit the bar 3 (three) times from the same shot.
