It feels great to know this thread won't be desperately watching relegation rivals in March. I really couldn't give a shit about Wigan,Barnsley and Luton.

Don't speak too soon. We could do a reverse end of last season!

Wigan will sack their manager I expect. Still though, they don't have the team there really.

They're one of those sides that have bounced back twice in recent years, however if they go down again they may disappear for some years.

Barnsley are a good club and will also be coming back.

Luton picked the wrong manager, even though they won today.

Were you there today? At half time I had a feeling we would do something secon half.

Feds got a rare start for Stoke yesterday and certainly stopped Stoke seeing a heavier defeat.

Sadly looks like Leeds will be going up though, could even afford to have Costa on the bench for 80 minutes.

They looked like they were going up last season as well.

Just ignore him Hound, as always he's got nothing to add but spite and attempts to rile people.

Do Swansea look good or do Birmingham look bad, or is it a bit of both?

Two consecutive heavy defeats on the road for Brum since they rode their luck to win at Brentford on the 1st day, they look clueless going forward, I reckon they should have signed Puscas.
On this evidence they look at bottom 6 side.

They've been threatening to drop for a while now and seem to be a total mess.

As poor as Birmingham have looked, Stoke's form is alarmingly poor...on that basis, if Birmingham beat Stoke at home on Saturday, does Nathan Jones go?

It's just struck me that the chorus to Danny Nedelko by Idles would make a most excellent chant for Ali Al Habsi.

Yeah, be very surprised if Al-Habsi on a 1 year deal is coming in to replace a 6.5m summer signing - will likely sit on the bench awaiting an injury and the FA Cup 3rd round.

Fair enough. Still though. Not many better back ups.

Funny that Ali has gone there given that their back up keeper was none other than Jonathan Bond.

He must be sick of Ali taking his place.
