I don't know what you told us all, but what a can tell you is they beat us twice, and imo were the best and side to come to the Hawthorns this season.

I hate Martin, but if we make the po I would love to avoid them.

Everyone here acting like they were prime Pep Barca, they ain't and they didn't exactly outplay us, for 30 mins we were well on top and should have had a pen if converted would've been a much much different 2nd half

We were the better team at their place too, defensively they are worst of the 4

They're nothing to fear at all, don't why people here are so scared of them

The John Smith's Stadium won't be a place for the faint hearted on Saturday that's for sure.

Yep, that is going to be a desperate game.

Just looking at the Coventry Hull game. I think a draw would be best. Doesn’t really do any team any favour. I win for either side could leave us on a similar position of them closing the gap potentially, going into the final game. Whatever these sides do, if we beat Weds then it seems done.

Very entertaining game last night between Middlesbrough and Leeds. Finished 3-4 with some cracking moments. Thought Gnonto's breakaway goal which stood was offside even before the replay which confirmed it.

Also thought that Bamford was a very lucky lad to only get a yellow for a slack challenge on Azaz which could easily have attracted a straight red. Azaz looked good for Boro last night as did Latte Lath.

My decision to watch Married at First Sight Aus looked increasingly poorer every time I checked the score but after a weekend of lots of football on the “big tele” I had to give the other half a TV win to stay in the good books.

That’s Boro out the play-off race so it’s looking like a winner in the Hull Coventry match would then be the only side that can catch us with us just needing one more win if it’s Cov that come out on top.

Distinct lack of moral fortitude in the face of passive aggressive feminism ya big metrosexual softie. I sincerely hope you didn't run the vacuum round first before handing over the remote. Pah.

Exits in huff to search out woolly underpants before stomping around the house in stoic masculinity while listening to Queen's Greatest Hits and shouting 'the remote control is MINE!'

In all seriousness you missed a cracking game. The commentator reckoned Bamford may have obscured the view of the ref's assistant for the offside and I think the ref erred on the side of caution for Bamford's iffy challenge as he wasn't too bad overall.

Leicester- Sothampton tonight. I wouldn't mind another crack at Leicester based on last Saturday's evidence, and I bet Leicester fans wouldn't be over optimistic.

I expect Leicester to go up automatically now but we shall see. Saints have to win of course to stand any chance whatsoever.

The difference in the 2 games between Saturday and today is amazing. Leicester are ‘all over’ Southampton in terms of shots touches in area etc compared to Saturday when we were the dominant force. Football is a funny game

Leicester have more flair but Southampton look a difficult side to beat. They are all strong and can turn on the ball. They haven't yet created any proper chances, but they are the type of team who can nick a goal and then defend it.

At half time would never have believed Leicester would score 5, but full credit to some excellent opportunist goals, especially from Fatawu. However, I don't think Southampton would be easy. They became much less compact when the game started running away from them.

Didn't Salam Rushdie have a Fatwa?

Didn't see that scoreline.

We look scared when teams drive at us with a fast counter attack. Start to go ultra defensive and can't get out of our half. This then spurs them on as the know we can't break - even if we do, we slow it down most of the time.

We need to put doubts into their heads if we want to do well in the playoffs.
