A place to discuss the games on telly and what not.

Two examples of absolutely comical defending for the two goals in the Hull Villa game.

Villa throwing money at it again.

Signed two foreign keepers, loaned Tuanzebe again, want to sign Joe Bryan for £6m and John McGinn for £4m.

Advantage of billionaire backers.

Interested to see how West Brom get on against Forest tonight. A couple more defeats and they could seriously find themselves in trouble. Also a good chance to see if Karanka has learned how to attack yet

Forest robbed - saying that WBA could and should have won 1-3.

Forest looked good - so did WBA in last 10.

I saw the last half hour tonight of the forest v wba game and wba were absolutely dreadful for 20 of those minutes. Came together for the last ten and nearly took all 3 points.
This league is so close. Anyone who has a bit of a winning run has a really good chance.

It was a bit of a crazy game. Forest were so dominant up until the equalizer but just weren't clinical enough...sound familiar?

So that’s Birmingham, Sheffield Wed and QPR who can’t sign players.

Any more likely to join them?

As I see it this season could be very similar to last season. Lots of ‘big’ clubs who are all going to take points of each other, will there be a stand out team like Wolves? Time will tell, I’m not seeing one yet.

Also lots of local derbies which can twist form.

PNE/Rovers/Wigan/Bolton

Sheffield Wed/Sheffield Utd/Leeds/Rotherham

WBA/Birmingham/Villa/Derby/Forest

Millwall/Brentford/QPR/Reading

Ipswich/Norwich

Swansea/Bristol

As last season huge expectations on some clubs , it’s about consistency, can we match or better last season.

It’s a huge challenge but I’m looking forwards to it.

Very early doors, but quite a few intriguing fixtures. I would only call Boro to beat Brum with any degree of confidence.

Frank Lampard's Derby showing the naivity of appointing a manager with no experience as a manager and no experience of this league

4 draws, and apart from the Derby game all wins by just a single goal margin, shows how tight this league is.
