Top of the league* :D We dominated the game as well, though the ref didn't want to give us anything.

*Unless Hull manage to beat Blackburn away tonight

10 goals in 3 games, very impressive. ince is ridiculously good, would walk in to at least 10 premier league teams. Can't see beyond Bolton and wolves for automatic so I reckon you'll have to settle for playoffs, hopefully well be up there too :D

Barnsley on the other hand will be lucky not to get relegated, harewood is absolutely useless, but Davies will still bang them in this season

You can always relay on us to kickstart someone elses season.. :D

And im not really fussed. I knew we would lose but didnt think by as much. We have a full team of 11 out of the first 18 out injured so im not too concerned about us yet. Harewood is still not match fit. There are much poorer sides then us in this division. Palace for one.

You're right there are few terrible teams in this league, palace look resigned to a relegation fight again this season, freedman sets them up with 3 or 4 defensive midfielders, which obviously isn't working as they have conceded 9 goals in 3 games. I thought bristol city might struggle again but they have just beaten Cardiff 4-2 and beat palace 4-1 the other night too. Peterborough and millwall look poor too but I really think you've got cause for concern, can you see where your wins will come from?

Once the first teamers come back especially Perkins and O'Brien who are the workhorses of the team and break down the opposition play quite well. We still have Mido and Toni Silva to come back along with some defenders. The wins will come mainly at home like they normally do with a few away victories.

Not looking forward to playing Bristol City next Saturday at home though. They seem to be playing well this season. Just got to get Swansea in the league cup out of the way this Tuesday without any more injuries!

The only 4 i can really see struggling in the championship are Palace, Barnsley, Peterborough and Bristol city. As said city have had a brilliant start and that could be key come the end of the season. Then again this is the championship and everything is on the finest of margins, Birmingham could struggle i don't rate lee clark at all, he spent a lot of money with huddersfield and failed to get them promoted 3 times. Wednesday and charlton look strong coming up and huddersfield will be tough to beat, but cant see many goals for them when rhodes inevitably leaves.

Is your first choice keeper injured? Gonzales really is a waste of space he is a terrible keeper.

Luke Steele our first choice in injured has been since end of last season. We signed Ben Alnwick who got sent off in cup game against Rochdale. He is due back after Swansea match so should be back on Sat. We always struggle but Barnsley have been in the second tier of English football the most out of anyone in the entire history. This is where we belong. :D

I think if Barnsley can get everyone fit then they should stay up, but it won't be easy for them; Palace and Peterborough are favourites to go down. A few teams are surprising me so far, Sheff Wednesday and Charlton mainly but they could still be on a high from their promotion last season. Hull, Derby, Millwall and Burnley are all real contenders for that last relegation spot in my opinion, along with the others I've mentioned.

Xhiea shocked you see Bolton and Wolves as the top two :shock: Wolves are in for a long hard season and could lose a few more key players before Friday, play offs best they can hope for. Bolton are a fair enough shout though, Blackburn too if they can avoid all the behind the scenes shenanigans! Hopefully another play off final visit to Wembley for ourselves, this time to end in victory! 8)

bolton still have a pretty solid team, and owen coyle is an excellent manager at this level. Dont forget that wolves after selling fletcher and jarvis have made £24 million quid, they would be mental not to reinvest a bit of that into the squad, they also have £16 million in parachute payments to use, they will be able to pay top transfer funds and pay pretty decent wages. Blackburn have different problems, the owners are completely undermining the manager and i think they are destined to have financial issues if venky's finally give up and sell the club. I'm thinking about putting a bet on brum going down because they spent a lot of money to get promoted last season, they failed and administration is looking very likely for them, and they have a poor man's simon grayson in charge. You will struggle to keep hold of tom ince with your wage caps, you need to sign him up on a long contract (if you already havent) or he may be off either this week or in Jan.

i went there last season and we lost 1-0, not a great place, did you have a chicken parmo? i had one last year and was terribly ill afterwards, i think you need a northern stomach to be able to handle them.

I see you are preparing for league 1 with the signings you've made so far, cant see Zahahaha staying much longer. :lol: :lol:

Was at Molineux on Saturday vs Derby, dominated possession for 70mins and after that we let play for the flanks and ultimately 91st minute equaliser. Really felt like a loss after leading for so long but one good thing to come out of it all was Kevin Doyle bagging a goal

Yeah, that must have put his price up a bit if/when he does go! ;)

Can't see him going to be honest, he's had a torrid time in the Premier League just needs to find his feet at championship level again along with Ebanks-Blake get his confidence back and boom.

Signed: Stephen Dobbie (Swansea), Andrea Orlandi (Swansea), David Lopez (Athletic Bilbao), Dean Hammond (Loan - Southampton)

Out: Craig Noone (Cardiff)

Some good bits of business done, but I, and other fans, are not happy about the return of Hammond, he has improved a lot since his days with us, but it will be hard to forgive him for celebrating in front of us when he scored against us at the withdean. :evil:

We didnt sign anybody on transfer deadline day. :cheers:

Good win for us against Brizzle though. We had 10 men for about 40mins but we managed to keep them out and won 1-0
Need this international break to get some players fit!
