    I think you will win it by an innings and 74 runs.
    As you can see Rich I dont have any confidence in our team, and we are relegation fodder already Im saddened to say. Our mega wealthy owners have sold us up the river this summer/pre season, and its going to be a miracle if we stay up this season.

    If that's the case Acido, we are globally renowned experts in renewing confidence, ending barren runs, and kick-starting otherwise hopeless seasons - I reckon we'll give you the gold service, 3 goals, 3 points, and we'll take a 1 goal service charge. Have a nice day!

    Adi’s right though Acido. We are absolute masters at being the fall guys where the ending of barren runs is concerned.
    Hope he’s wrong this time, but I think Rich’s 1-4 prediction takes unfounded optimism to a whole new level.

    Not sure what’s going on at Oakwell...thought you’d bounced back well and had ‘loadsamoney’ owners. What’s happening?

    Hope you stay up but that the recovery doesn’t start against us.
    I’ll go for 2-2 and hope for more.

    With regard to our run ending capacity, that also applies to long winning or unbeaten runs by our opponents. I remember a few years back, we were struggling and the Rad Dogs hadn't lost in 20 odd games. Enter Steve Howard who heads in a free kick from, I think, Kris Commons. 1-0 win.

    However, as we are in need of points ourselves, I believe the Rams will prevail. Unless, that is, we persevere with FloJo on the left wing. Barnsley are suspect down the flanks and I think we'd be better off with JML there rather than Jozefzoon.

    Agreed mac, I’d prefer to see them out of contention for selection until all this is resolved.

    RA agreed don't really want to see them till after there trial Although the club insist they are in contention for selection ,would imagine that's just to stay within any unfair dismissal rules if it ever came to that As for Barnsley i pretty sure we will lose having watched them against Brentford they will out work us I won't be there off on my holidays in the morning Croatia and Slovenia

    We sometimes do that ourselves Anag, either we hand a win to a team who have been really struggling (like at home to Luton a few weeks ago). Or we co and shock a promotion contender in their own back garden when they least expect it. But that doesnt happen much these days lol.

    Our owners have sold us up the river mate this summer. They used to run/own Nice Fc in France and it was a bad way how they ended it there I think. And Im imagining it could happen to us if they get bored and pull the plug on us one day, who knows, we could be another Bolton or Bury in the waiting!.

    Sorry to hear that, Acido. Great old club in a real football town.
    Obviously we have problems of our own at the moment but it’s maybe at such times that people should recognise the importance of having an owner who is also a genuine fan.
    Our owner isn’t faultless and he’s made mistakes but ultimately he’s a die hard DCFC and I honestly believe that, despite being let down on many occasions by various individuals, he’d never sell us down the river in the way you speak of at Barnsley.
    Good luck...after tonight.

    There you go Acido, told you we were the generous type. If you weren't so charitable yourselves then you may have had those 3 points.

    Condolences to the friends and family of 66 year old Jeffrey Wroe, a Barnsley fan who passed away at the match last night.
