Not the result you want to discover after a 17 hour day at work  >:(  To be honest we were fairly fortunate to scrape past Luton and Mansfield and the powers that be clearly have no interest in the competition. Why the hell doesn't he give Field a go in the middle and where was Burke?

Out of interest, did Roy get a good reception?

We've pretty much always had it good against the Blues but this is going to be a tough game. Truth be told, I'd take a point. Boing Boing.

Oh and any Baggies in the home end should behave themselves, or else they'll quickly find this derby is not so 'friendly' after all.

If, for whatever reason, Brunt and Livermore are undroppable in Moore's eyes, I think he should consider benching Rodriguez, playing Gayle up top with Barnes behind him and adding an extra pair of legs in central midfield in the shape of either Harper or Field.

You'd think the club might as well have signed up Boiler Man as our replacement for Nyom but evidently his wage demands were too high.

No 'almost' about it. Looked at objectively, it is bona fide comedy gold.

Last weekend of the summer hols.

That or many who stated they wanted their club back and would attend no matter what the division are full of pap.

I know which one my money's on  ;) .

Doubtless it is because they all know the script - 97 minutes on the clock, 0-0, James McClean shanks a shot, it turns into a cross and the ball, after wobbling agonisingly from one to the other, will come to nestle betwixt Fat Boy Dim's arse cheeks, from whence it will ejected Thai ping pong style into the net.

I believe we've had the 12th highest number of 50k+ attendances too, though West Ham might now have overtaken us (they will do soon in any case). Not bad seeing as we haven't had one (officially) since 1962.

Well that was written in the stars. Desperately disappointing performance.

Great support from the lads who've made the trek up there.

Love Brunt but he just cannot cut it at CM against the better sides. Have to say Pulis has got Boro well set up and they really should be ahead. COYB

Given how pitifully we have dealt with set pieces thus far, I fear we will be sent crashing back down to Earth tonight. 3-1 Boro  :(

Where was he, talksport? I'd be interested to hear what he's had to say, some good stuff has come out in interviews with the local press this morning.

I only caught a bit of it. It was on WM during the halftime break in the Walsall match.

Listening to Graeme Jones last night, it very much seems like Nacer is going nowhere this window. Apparently this week has been his first back at full training. What a player he'll be for us at this level if we can get him fit  :o

I'm not going to stop banging on about it but Gareth Barry just oozed class when he came on. I would really like him to play in place of Brunt. Would be the perfect player to play away at Middlesborough.

He did to be fair. The QPR goal aside, the only blemish on an otherwise fantastic day was the fact that some of our 'fans' booed him when he came on.

Many congratulations to Wolves for obtaining a result we've never managed to achieve away at Leicester in the Premier League or indeed ever at the King Power Stadium. They truly are leaving us hopelessly in their wake  ;)

Is that the grease spoon round the corner from the ground? They do a nice spam, egg and chips there ;D

Not sure when it relocated from the Topkapı palace  ;) I'm sure they do good egg and chips but I doubt they serve spam, not officially at any rate.

Does anyone know if there is any prospect of him being released from the kafes sometime this century?

I've probably missed about a dozen home games in all competitions since 1994 and travel away regularly. For the last couple of years the wife's had a home season ticket too and has also attended most of the Cup games. She was away at the weekend so I may give this one a swerve and ask her if she fancies going for a meal. My face will be an absolute picture if she says no and says she wants to go to the Albion on her own instead  :o ;D .

Does she know we're playing? If not, don't tell her. Just take her out. Then when she sees the next day that we played you'll get extra brownie points. In my experience telling her (no matter how unostentatiously) that you have missed the match to take her out is a major no-no. Perceived fishing for brownie points / brownie blackmail inevitably leads to a net loss of brownie points, no matter how swanky the meal.

You must remember a different Defreitas to me!

He wasnt great in the championship and I don't think ever graced the premier league.

For Bolton maybe? When he wasn't eating himself to death or inhabiting a fantasy realm in which the normal rules of time did not apply, he did actually show the odd flash of genius. There was a sort of grace in his corpulent meanderings around the pitch.
