Meltdown on twitter for fans over Mike Ashley and Rafa's post-match interview.

We're on our way back!

Shame Blackburn are so utterly useless but good that you never seem to know what you'll get with Newcastle

Br*ght*n will win tonight in a tight affair

And let's not get carried away Saturday either, we all know that Reading are more than capable of turning in a real **** of a performance at Portman Road.

By the way is Huddersfield v Leeds on the TV at all this weekend, that would be a cracker of a game and so much more worthwhile to show than the usual turgid PL cr@p SKY continually chuck our way. Thought not.

They're still in a great position, and if they do choke, with the squad they've got and the money they've spent, they should be angry at Rafa, not Ashley.

Why would anyone not be angry with Mike Ashley ?

I think Brighton will win at Brentford then hopefully Newcastle will be held by Derby or Derby win up there. Say Derby nab a draw. Wigan wont be easy for Wednesday either, a draw for them would be great for us.

Then that'll make the top 7 as follows if it was to happen.

1) Brighton (P29) - 64
2) Newcastle (P29) - 60
3) Reading (P30) - 58
4) Leeds (P30) - 54
5) Huddersfield (P29) - 53
6) Derby (P29) - 47
7) Sheffield Weds (P29) - 47

Newcastle and Brighton's game in hand is v each other so hopefully a draw if not a Brighton win in that!


Their games in hand are surely on the 18th when we aren't playing due to Huddersfield still being in the cup. So Brighton at Barnsley and Newcastle home to Villa on the 20th.

Their game on the 28th will leave us with the Huddersfield game in hand, as our game there can't be played on the 28th as they are playing Wolves already.

Huddersfield away will probably be 14th March.

Loving the look of our final run in!

Hopefully a couple of those last 4 games we play may be against already relegated opposition.

Agree.

Huddersfield looking very good compared to Brighton who have barely featured. Lucky to be 1-1.

2-1 Udders!

Changed my mind and now want Huddersfield to win (as long as it's not by too much and gives their GD a boost) as Leeds and Huddersfield are playing each other on Sunday and can't both get points at the weekend too.
