  1. v Leeds (H) - Predictions

    Bringing the wife up to this from sunny Sussex. It's her second game, first one was Forest so hopefully she's a good luck charm! My supervisor will be in the away end so I'm going for... 1-0, frgs Vydra
  2. v Sheff Weds (A) - Predictions

    Pretty safe to say 1-1 methinks, our preferred scoreline. Frgs Weimann
  3. v Norwich (H) - Predictions

    0-0, no frgs
  4. The points required

    We just need 1 point more than the highest 3rd place, so that would be 90 points I reckon. Brings the target back down to 33
  5. 6pm live announcement with Mel

    It certainly looks from that GIF to be a sort of 'throw down the gauntlet' 'gloves are off' kind of thing. Curious.
  6. Stronger or Weaker

    Agree with this. We may have lost some favourites but the squad is neater and tighter and we're on the right side of FFP, hopefully with more flexibility come the summer if we don't go up. If we do go up, we won't have to clear so much deadwood. Smaller, tighter, stronger squads worked well enough for Burnley and Bournemouth, larger bloated overpaid squads not so well for QPR.
  7. Stronger or Weaker

    So corporate.
  8. v Brentford (H) - Predictions

    1-0, Jerome

    Thank you to @RadioactiveWaste for his view. To be fair, my son is doing his master's in history and he said I was talking ********. I'm not having it I tell you.

    Anyway, I thoroughly recommend Ring Of Steel, Germany and Austria-Hungary At War, 1914-1918 by Alexander Watson. And Gary Sheffield's book on Douglas Haig, a much fairer and balanced portrayal than the crap we were taught at school.

    Wild flight of imagination, based on Russian mobilization threatening invasion from the East. To be fair, the Germans/Austria-Hungary were well up for it anyway.

    We had freedom of speech here? At that time? To a greater degree than Germany?. This desire to conquer other peoples, is that the same desire we had in our empire to, err, conquer other peoples?

    Whilst you could certainly make that case for WW2, to say that for WW1 would be seriously wide of the mark. Besides, the Russians started WW1.

    Why would you need to respect his beliefs? If someone's beliefs are clearly nonsensical they should be called out on it.
