If Brentford fail to win tomorrow and we beat Blackburn and Fulham...we're up...right?!

We are playing before Brentford because of this

Third day back of the pub trading, here’s a few observations while im on my break (with my feet up, forgot how many miles i over across a day)

Some pub chains are sleep walking into a health crisis. My company and another company (whitbread) are miles ahead of everybody else safety’s wise. Some companies havent every even issued new training Glad I don’t work for spoons. I can see them striking soon.

People either care about corona or they don’t and they’re prepared to get thrown out over not adhering to basic rules such as distanced queuing and one in one out in the toilets . Morons


I thought the young customers would Be the problem but they’ve been Stars. Not had  words with anybody under the age of 35 I’d say.

Over 50’s (mainly blokes) have been pig ignorant, rude and fought us every single rule. Spoilt and entitled. HAd a bloke threaten to take me outside and screaming in my face because he wasn’t allowed to wait for his drink at the bar, and had to sit at his table about 6 steps away.  The police have been fantastic though. No qualms coming in anymore and dragging people out.

But for the most part, general public have been fantastic, respectful and understanding of why we are doing what we are doing. So much nicer than the usual general public 😂😂😂

You are right the country seems split on those who care and those who don't even give it a second thought. There's no middle ground.

I went to a pub and sat outside the other day, just a quiet pub. Strange experience but my word the Tribute on draught was beautiful!

It's my friend's birthday on Saturday and 6 of us are getting together and drinking in a very responsible person's house. Problem is right by town and i think the group will split after a few drinks to 3 going town and 3 not. And i think they'll head for spoons. i just hope everybody can be sensible, including everybody else when the guys i know are out

What does that mean? Anyone of us could do a bit of sketching and post it on Instagram.

Basically means what you've said. A graphic designer has just come up with some kit ideas. Nothing official.

I’ve decided to stop hoping that others will do us favours by failing or succeeding. We can only rely on our own performances, hopefully  :D

Very wise, I've also started looking wondering where we can mess up! I'm hoping nowhere but if we are going to win 3 and lose 1 we lose the QPR game as then we won't have to suffer it going to the last game!

Mowbray's teams will play into this WBA team's hands in my opinion. But the game is going to be tough, may be a "you score 3 we score 4" kind of game.

Then obviously Fulham is huge and they will need to win so again that plays into our hands. We just got to not do anything stupid like Bartley's ridiculous back passes or Johnstone's performance v Hull.

He's incredibly good at stopping crosses going in. He's great, it's made us forget Ferguson very quickly!

All the people that talk sense here are in agreement - Ajayi and Hegazi and Hegazi is the best CB at the club.

Derby passing well but could play into our hands the way it’s going at the back for them

It was a good goal from Arter, good fight and finish.

They keep talking about Brenford and Fulham catching us, I don't think Leeds are out of sight yet!

Wonder if Gibbs has a bit of a mental hurdle to overcome here with this.

Cases rising in Melbourne and states going into lockdown, flights being limited and cancelled. All the while my visa ticks down...at least I'm safe and got my health though and Australia are doing what they do well.

Very scary every time they had a corner. Can't imagine what being a defender must be like with him behind.

I'll support him while he's picked but we need to improve next season.

Job done, but still some big question marks over this team. The keeper is still a massive concern. Losing Hegazi and possibly Gibbs is a hammer blow, and the threat at the top of the pitch all but disappeared when Austin went off. Thank goodness for our wingers and attacking mids.

Thought it was an error taking Sawyers off which he had to rectify about 10 mins later by introducing Brunt. But we regained control of the football quickly after this further change.

Pereira a clear man of the match.

At least he recognised it.

Gutted i'm at work and didn't see much as it sounded like a great game but had BBC WM on eventually and enjoyed that.

Get in there album, one more step done.

Not sure how i feel about these wholesale changes that change the flow of a game completely.

We now have Livermore and Brunt in CM folks. Well i assume Brunt is there.

Very strange subs. Sawyers was playing really well.

Why are the commentators not spotting that "delicate chips right under the crossbar" are causing us problems purely because of the keeper?

They are on Talksport 2!
