You know what I think Burton might get out of this. They have at least heart and passion and fight. Birmingham look poor though.

Not the worst shout I've heard.

Although just wondering why we're mentioning Sunderland in a "Rivals" topic thread? They're 7 points and 17 goals worse off than us. Call it 8 points, (3 wins).

Ffs John. You really are pissing about aren't you. There are how many games left?

If we lose the next 3 and they win what happens?

Brum seemed to have a full on melt down last night - Fans booing the boss, Keeper writing apologies on twitter.

Seems their mini revival may have crashed to an end

And they don't have Reading to play to get started again.

Not rivals to us, but Derby losing to a pretty poor and off form Leeds

Watched a bit and Derby are pretty basic. Certainly shouldn’t be scared of them

Yeah literally the second I posted :)

Still matters not, dropping points at home. Watched the last 10 - Leeds were pretty rancid

If you look at the highlights they could easily have lost 10:0 ... and most of the 5 goals were comedy defending! What a mess.

Rant at the pub:

Cardiff 1-0 winners at Ipswich tonight, I see. Which of course, is how you win at Ipswich.

Cardiff just won 1-0 on Saturday, too, over Boro (which of course, is how you beat Boro, cos they are good defensively). Morrison soared over Gibson to head the winner. (Our beloved, and 6mil self-rated, Liam Moore prolly doesn't soar over Gibson. Does he still go up for corners?).

Warnock pre-game: 'Hey, get it to HT 0-0, lads. No worries. Keep it tight for an hour. Then win some free kicks up their end, and I'll send Morrison and Bamba up for it. We've practiced it over and over. 1-0, job done, good night'.

Cardiff have six over 6'3 in their starting eleven. And they just signed Madine at 6'3. Plus, they can also bring on Halford, like tonight. Gunnarsson, also big, tough and mean, has been out a while. Morrison and Bamba score goals with headers from set pieces, often fouling in the process. Warnock always rides the refs. Stam not so much.

(Burnley did the same in Champ. They won 1-0 at Preston on a set piece in a crucial game in their promo year. We don't really do 1-0's at Preston. Not really in our make up. Look at Burnley's 1-0s this season in PL. Not very attractive or entertaining, though. Bored stiff, and all that. 'I'm spending my hard-earned, how are we supposed to vent our anger!?').

Morrison and Halford used to be our's. We could have signed Bamba. Wolves and Cardiff have conceded the least goals this season. They currently sit in 1st and 2nd place in the Champ.

We aren't a 1-0 team. We don't have the players for it. Cardiff have seven 1-0 wins this season, with more to come. We've had one all season. If we had another one, it would be picked apart. 'I wasn't entertained!'.

Warnock must laugh at a lot of teams, stumbling, fumbling, bumbling around, trying to find their own formulas. 'Thanks for playing', etc. You could write the script once Cardiff hired him a year ago with them near the bottom. It wouldn't take long. Is it hard to get out of the Champ? He shipped Tomlin out cos he isn't a 90 minute player, and he isn't. Warnock, 85th min, 1-0 up at Forest, its done. Next morning, we moan that Stam can't hold a lead.

We don't want Warnock here, though. We wouldn't welcome that Portugeezer bloke, either. We wouldn't even want Dyche. He talks funny. Nope, we is going to do it our way, in the middle of the 3-year plan. Get promo, doing it pretty, on our budget, and then play em off the park in the Prem, too. And in the mean time, we can lobby for Gilkes. :o

Totally agree hate him love him he knows what to do to get teams out of this league. No good playing that way in the premier league as you soon get found out. AKA Pullis and Allardyce are the same. All these foreign coaches in the Championship and it’s still the old boys who know how to get the job done.

Leeds haven't won since boxing day, I do wonder if that run will still be going by the time we play them on March 10th.

At best we’ll take a 1-0 lead before half time and Stam makes the same oxf*rd mistake he’s made ALL season so we don’t win
