    Absolutely brilliant

    Well I am amazed by that result but we are looking directly at the play offs.
    Are we good enough to be there?the jury is still out but with the changes today,we looked head and shoulders better than Bristol city.
    A nice rest,then on to wigan at home
    Do we dare to dream?

    That was a premier League away performance robin. Keep up that standard and we'll be in the mix I'm sure.

    I agree with Sax. That was a Prem style away win that today vrs a rival.
    I thought we got everything right today. Mowbray made 6 changes and it was the right thing to do after a few tough games. The older players like Downing & Graham can't play every week. He did the right thing not changing the side over the past 5 games. Today he did the right thing making 6 changes. He did it at the right time.
    The change in system, and plsyers really threw them aswell. Big time. 1st half they didnt know what yo do with our front 2. And changing to 4-4-2 suited the players brought in. And we didn't miss Dack which is the best thing of all. Mainly down to the change in system.
    Johnson was superb. As was Bell. Bennette Tosin is just a class act and didn't break sweat. Gallagher lead the line very well. Brereton looked a little rusty, which is fair enough and expected. Give him games and he will start to flourish like SG. The manager got it spot in
    We really are in the mix now boys and girls.
    We set to strengthen in Jan and I feel we need to go all out for Tosin. Even if it's 15m plus. We need to go get him and make him ours.

    Totally agree on most of what you said champs but 15 million?if we spent that and failed to go up we would end up getting a points deduction and ultimately facing trouble.
    We have great relations with city so maybe 5 million plus a bolt load of add ons might be the answer.
    Let's celebrate a great win
    We are bang in the hunt and look to a group of very winnable fixtures but without getting too ahead of ourselves we are not the best over the festive period.

    Not sure we'd get him for a low as 5m. Hope we do. 15m is in our budget.

    Is it champs?
    39 million over 3 seasons
    We have spent around 7 million on 2 players and that's before including wages on them and the freebies.
    I think 15 million would be a huge risk.
    **** or bust if you like.
    I really really like tosin but is it worth risking 15 million on.

    Definitely bragging-rights for me over my cousin. To be fair, he has emailed (much shorter than usual!) to say we deserved the win.
    Johnson was back to his best here. I'm never sure what makes players drift in and out of form.
    Not to mention teams! What a difference three weeks can make. I just looked at some of the other results and shook my head, but I shouldn't really be surprised.
    The only shock would be a weekend with no shocks!

    So much cr@p written over on brfcs but this quote from Arbitro hits the nail on the head for me......

    "The run we have been on but the last week in particular is what we are all about as a club. Working hard, tackling, doing it for the club, great team ethic and many other things for which we are renowned. Significantly for me Mowbray seems to have ditched his new world passing game and gone back to the values we love. In the early part of the season I saw confusion from the players as to what way they should be playing. Of course we can pass it when it's on but we now seem to be seeing a mix of styles which is proving effective.

    My message to Mowbray would be don't over complicate things and play to our strengths with the players we have."
