It's a good feeling and a wonderful sight and for all the shit we have had past few years what an exciting run in we now have to look forward too. At everyone's expense including ours.

Pepe the Horseman
NewCorkSeth Rafa might be about to get sacked tonight.

Edit: Sorry might be about to depart the club.

No chance of him walking away before the summer, apparently.

Sorry I got caught out by a cheekily worded tweet saying there was "MAJOR NEWS" regarding his future at the club to be released tonight...

The next 5 weeks really are squeaky bum time. 14-17 points from the next 7 games including 5 from Huddersfield, Brighton and Newcastle and we will definitely be automatic promotion contenders

Which season did we come 3rd in a two-horse race for the title?

That would be 2008-09, where we didn't win a home game after Jan, and bottled it in the playoffs against Burnley?

False 3rd. More like 4th in a 3 horse race?

Sutekh Bit early really but just so you have some idea what fixtures are left for the current top 7



Those final 4 games for us could be 8)

Huddersfield, Derby & Wednesday all have a pretty tough run in.

Great result for us last night.

At the moment, there really is no pressure on us, so hoping the team can continue to build on it's momentum.

A win on Saturday will really but pressure on Brighton the next day esp. if Huddersfield beat Leeds as well. Will strangely be supporting Derby as well.

Massive week at the end of the month with Huddersfield and Brighton (a) on the 21st and 25th.

That was a weird season, we were so shit from the new year to the end of the season, yet we still would've gone up automatically had we won the final game against Birmingham.

Didn't Matejovsky come off the bench to score in that game. Only for Keith Fahey to break our hearts. Almost warranted me wasting my pocket money on a Marek 7 shirt at the beginning of the season.

Think we were already 2-0 down when he scored.
