There’s nobody having a good game but bloody hell Vela looks like he’s been on the piss last night. 

Isn't he the player we will be selling? Genuinely puzzles me that a midfielder who only contributes as long as he doesnt get the ball is so highly rated by some.

Didn't go today, but glad Murphy sounds to have had a good game. Hopefully going best us that creative spark and a the ability to pass the ball forwards from midfield we've been missing for so long.

Only downside of the day was we were 7/1 at 0-1 and forgot my Cvc number for £20 to win £140.

Good win thank god and the perfect comeback to Hull and that 1st half hopefully Parky woke them up at HT after he butted Wildshut.

Confirms our place firmly in the chasm between league 1 and the championship

Some people have other commitments.

Today I got far more enjoyment from watching my son and daughter compete in the Lancs XC @ Witton Park.

Theres a fine line between being a top fan and someone with nothing else going on in their life.

We all know plenty of these types of people in life.

Hopefully this result will breed some confidence.

The Noone cross and Magennis headed goal pleased me the most, if you look on youtube at Magennis's goals at Charlton many of them were scored in that style.

Get it wide and get some decent crosses in and the lad will score.

That can be Parkys mission for the rest of the season - it might just work.

Really cheered me up that today

Spent the day at Overdale cleaning my Dad's memorial stone for my Mum, and then the rest of the day keeping her company, as my Dad died 9 years ago today

Like you say. Other commitments. I had no intention whatsoever of going today and will wear my shitfan medal

That'll be Holdsworth. Also in the FA Cup in January 2001.

Last hat trick by a player not on loan in a league game? Has got to be a record in professional football surely.

And rather than slowing the game down getting all the big lads up and lumping it in, Murphy played a quick free kick to Noone, whipped in ball and goal. Their defensive life caught completely off guard. 

Does beg the question of what Murphy had done to warrant a clear freezing out? Or was it the standard PP approach of removing someone for no reason whatsoever when it is clear they could help the side...

Much as we would all like this to be the case I just can't see it happening. Many on here have been advocating something like that for ages - playing wingers on their right side, higher tempo, getting players in the box and crosses in.

Football is really a simple game but you wouldn't believe that listening to some Managers. They all think they are some kind of tactical geniuses and it's oh so complicated - too complicated for us simple supporters to understand.

Much as I like PP as a person he over complicates and over thinks things. But we live in hope!

Approx half of the Championship teams can be expected to reach 4th round, so 25% or so, say 3 of the 12 matches will go ahead, with the rest moved back 3 or 4 days to midweek. But the alternative is to schedule them all for midweek, leaving several teams without a weekend match.

I like PP but he seems to select teams and sets us out with fear and not  to have a go at the oppositions, we need to stop that and have a go in every game from now until the end of the season, 1 up top isn’t the answer as has been proved all season.

"That day we got smashed at home to United in the Cup and they had 10k there"

Be a Black Sunday style mental scar that, but possibly a necessity.

I'm at the stage where only money matters. I don't even want to attend bolton v man u as it would be embarrassing, i'd rather attend Accrington away. But I don't need to go to games, I just want the club to survive.

Back in the day even top tier had fixtures arranged for each weekend apart from the first FA Cup appearance.

So in 1909 Bradford City were due to be at home on the day of each succeeding round:

6/2 v Sheffield United rearranged for 27/3 (itself an FA Cup day),

20/2 v Nottingham Forest rearranged for 30/3,

6/3 v Chelsea postponed for weather and rearranged for 20/4,

27/3 v ManUnited rearranged for 29/4,

24/4 was Cup Final day, but the final set of normal league fixtures was held including BradC v Notts County.

All fixtures had to be played by 30/4 as football was only played if there was an R in the month.

Champions Newcastle had a hectic final week:

24/4 won away at Blackburn, 

26/4 lost away to Aston Villa, 

28/4 won the (next season's) Charity Shield v Southern League champs Northampton at Stamford Bridge,

30/4 lost at home to Liverpool but presented with League Trophy - this win for Liverpool lifted them from 19th (a relegation spot) to 16th, and in the process relegated ManCity (who had not been in the bottom two all season and were 17th after their last match on 28/4).

Agree with both but I don’t see him changing it in the league. Even though we all know he should 

in league 1 and instances like today he backs the team to be better than the opposition. Gives them the freedom to go and play. Take the shackles off really 

in this league he’s basically telling everyone by how he sets up we’re better than no one and anything we get we’ve pinched. 

He just needs to be braver in his selections, the formation and our approach to games. We’re going down with the current approach but I’d rather go down fighting with a bloody nose than curling up and rolling over
