    Upcoming games....

    I see the Wendies have what should be a fairly straight forward game tonight at home to the Bees but I bet that doesn't stop Acido, CB and myself wanting the lucky Wendies turned over. Then comes the weekend with another bout of huge games and in my head it really is last chance saloon for us and the Yawkshire Dingles to try and pull back 2 or 3 points were possible. Barnsleys task is far greater than ours as again they entertain a very inform Huddersfield. We gave on paper a very winnable game at home to QPR and we have to win it. Huge game at Bellend Road were Leeds entertain the Wendies, enough said on the importance of that one and Burnley have a very winnable game against Hull except it's away so can the Dingles finally finally bury the away hoodoo. Carlisle have their own tough game at home to Portsmouth one of the tightest defences in the football league against Pompey my 2nd team so sorry Griff it's Play up Pompey. What a weekend and good luck everybody as for me it's definitely crunch weekend

    Its always tough for me wondering who to cheer for when Sheff Weds play Leeds! And its not the only South v West battle in our county this weekend, but it will get all the headlines again as usual.
    As much as we both try, I don't think us or Hudds ever get that excited about playing each other (apart from when we did them in the Lg One play offs in 2006 of course ).

    I was happy either way as long as we won and close the gap to 6pts, job done. The Wendies are on a mini wobble and next entertain an improved Norwich side so i dont see them winning that one either. Fulham is now a massive game for us and over 2500 tickets sold so far means there will be plenty of nobbers to getting right behind the players. If we can just get 3pts at Fulham we will be within touching distance of the play-offs.

    I don't like agreeing with the Leeds/Bradford fan Gards, but hes right.
    The play off teams are sorted and its all about consolation now for our teams.

    League one has the prospect of a more interesting run in bfud having sold the family silver like Barnsley run a big risk of missing out.

    we will see in the next 3 games for us as we have Fulham and Derby away then Reading at home a week tomorrow. If we pick up 3 points or less then we are mid table mediocrity which is fine by me. However 6-9 points from these games and its game on

    If Leeds are to have any hopes of automatic they need to beat Brum tonight.. I fancy them to do it as well..

    Same applies to Preston at Fulham,another they need to win to have a chance of play offs ..Could end up a draw

    Clarets away to Swansea ,a hard game for us,but it's matches like these ee need to pick up the odd point,do I would be more than happy with a draw..

    I think Burnsley blowing hot and cold so anything could happen to them..hard one to predict..

    Yeah agree with you Alfi on this and a draw in our game doesnt help either side. Your game at Swansea is tough as they have recently perked up a bit. Barnsley like you said anything can happen and generally does. Leeds I think will win at St. Andrews, i know they had a good win at Wolves but they are sh1te at the moment.

    Leeds played an interesting game last night, very laid back and clearly not as desperate as Bha to win but were able to switch on some great play - particularly Wood is goals showed great composure and I wonder how we will keep hold of him, someone must have been watching - his first goal was class. I still think we are play off material though and I don't think the top six will change Fulham may have a shout particularly if they win to day we will have a job on come Wednesday. Squad strength is an issue for all come April it is a busy month.

    Well Gards do you accept it is all over now for PNE, six points adrift of sixth place with Fulham threatening to take it if anyone slips up

    Can you believe those stats, they didnt suggest that Sheff Wensday deserved to even win, let alone by 5 goals to 1.
    These teams at that end of the table seem to have so much luck it really bugs me, but then again I also dont give a two hahh about Naarich and their deluded arrogant fans. (I dont know what two hahh means, I just made it up lol).

    Ive known all along this season that we wont challenge for the play offs, and another dreadful January 'window' shows how poor our ambition really is. Its looking like Fulham are the only possible outside challengers to the play off-4.

    Hopefully we will take care of Fulham mid week, though I think it will be a fight and suspect it will end up a draw.

    For us Nobbers and Barnsley I am afraid I have to concede challenging for the play-offs and now its a case of not letting the season fall away like we did last season. We have 11 games left and we need to continue like we have played for the majority of the season and we will finish were I think we deserve and thats around 8th - 10th place. I feel sorry for the Barnsley fans ie Acido as i think you could have challenged for a play-off position if you hadnt have unloaded a number of players. Leeds definitely play-off bound but now its just if you can push for that 2nd spot. Brighton are class but it will be a test for them now they have lost 2 on the bounce and with Leeds on the 18th they had better not lose anymore before playing you

    Yes I have just checked April and we have a ridiculous amount of games against the best in the division particularly away from home including Newcastle, Udders, Leeds ouch not friendly at all.
