Fulham complete the most passes last night with Leeds the us second and third. Not impressive in itself until you consider Fulham completed about the same as us and Leeds combined.

Probably a championship record I’d have thought

Overall you are right about Fulham's superiority in passing last night. But the stats I have looked at suggest a slightly different analysis, as follows:

Fulham Passes 991, Completed 935, % Successful 94.3%
Leeds Passes 601, Completed, 489, % Successful 81.4%
Albion Passes 554, Completed 466, % Successful 85.6%

So not quiet as decisive looking at "Stats Zone" analysis, but impressive nonetheless

From the early fixtures I see maybe 3 teams who are pretty certain to be in a relegation struggle, Wigan, Barnsley and Stoke. Even then, if Stoke replace Jones in the near future, they may climb out of it with the players they've got.
At the same time,  only a few clubs look definite promotion candidates, Leeds, Fulham and maybe Bristol City and Swansea.
There's seems to be a very large group of clubs in between.

For me, the top half in order:

Leeds
WBA
-----------------
Bristol
Derby
Cardiff
Fulham
-----------------
Forest
Huddersfield
Middlesbrough
Brentford
Sheffield Wed.
QPR

I predicted the above a few weeks back and so far I wouldn't change the clubs in the top 6, but would slightly adjust the placing, moving Fulham up to third with Bristol, Derby and Cardiff all moved down 1 place. Of the next 6 I would put Reading (who might be the most likely of the rest to finish in the top 6) and Preston in the top half at the expense of Huddersfield and Middlesbrough, but that's about it. Swansea look decent, but think their start has been a little kind and they will eventually fall away.

Interesting game tonight. Fulham still a lot of people’s pick whereas Cardiff seem to have gone under the radar, despite the fact a Cardiff win puts them above Fulham.

Got 2-2 all over it.

Field got 74 mins and Leko 81 mins in Charlton's 2-0 win, plus Leko scored. Good action for our two.

Apologies for the "colour" but thought you might enjoy some of these

You have to wonder how he did so well at Luton? He obviously isn't fucking clueless but something is very very wrong with the club from top to bottom and those overpaid shitfucks on the pitch need to be held accountable as well they are a fucking disgrace!
**** knows how he will turn this round if he doesnt get the bullet

....and when they bought the 16 year old in you just knew he’d score. I did anyway- as an old timer myself it’s what happens to Stoke.
However we are atm the epitome of dire.

What the **** is everyone's problem? We're only 9 points off the playoffs ;)
The manager's position is about as tenable as an untenable thing, who's having an Untenable themed fancy dress party during freshers week at "The University of Untenable Things".
He can't survive the weekend can he?

and how about the capped one called back to Stoke to prevent relegation?

the stoke situation is tailor made for TP - they would be mad not to give in to the temptation.

Despite (or perhaps given) his previous time there a good number of Stokies absolutely detest TP. Many were absolutely and utterly sick of the sight of him and his brand of f*c*ball by the time he left. For me to say a potential reappointment would split the support base is a major understatement on my behalf.

Looks like Garry Monk is set to be appointed the new manager at Sheffield Wednesday.

Danny Cowley joins Huddersfield. Now we will see how he manages at this level.

Just seen a report on twitter that 'Boro are going to sue the League over them permitting Derby's ground sale to flout the FFP rules the full story is in the Times and as I don't subscribe no further details at present. Interesting development which could have significant ramifications. If it does go to court there is no way of knowing how this pans out.

On the subject of Derby watched their 1:1 against Cardiff. Neither side looked anything special and on balance our draw at Derby looks less good as I see more of this team.

Missed the second half and don't quite know how Leeds weren't 3 nil aagainst Derby but that's a good start to our weekend.
