Needless to say I'm very pleased with the Sunderland result. I hope this is the start of something beautiful, and not just a temporary blip on the road to oblivion.

Randolph's clearance for Derby's third was amazing. :lol:

Another win for Villa. Uncle Albert is on fire.

Just saw it :lol:.

We've got several players going through a purple patch at the moment. Vydra, Carson, Keogh... Thorne coming back and reminding us why we missed him so much. It's looking good.

Looking forward to the Villa game in a few weeks :nod:.

Do we have any Cardiff fans on here? Just asking if so, how do you feel about Warnock's tactics and overall gameplan?

I know this will sound sour grapes after our defeat to them today but honestly in all my years of watching and going to games, I have never seen a team waste time so much and from so early in the game. Straight after they scored (in the 24th minute) all the gamesmanship started. Time wasting for over an hour! And from a team second in the table no less!

Goalie took an age with every goal kick.
Throw ins required a centre half to walk as slow as possible to the touch line where he had to spend 20 secs drying the ball on his shirt every time. Sometimes then throwing the ball to someone else to take the throw in only for them to 'accidentally' miss the catch and have to walk 10yds to get it and then ask the linesman where to take it from.
Players staying down after every challenge.
Corner kicks taking an age whilst players ambled up for the ball to be floated in.
Substitutions where the player leaving the field jogs at that speed that is actually slower than walking.

Honest to God I have never seen such a gooseberry fool match where only 15 secs play occurred every 2 mins. I know we weren't good today and I can accept defeats against better teams on the day (e.g. Leeds were professional when they came to our place and deservedly beat us then).

If I was a Cardiff fan and had to put up with that 'entertainment' every week I would be severely unimpressed even if we were top 2 or not

#Neil Warnock, what a wanker#

Told the QPR fans who left early that if they’re going to do that, not to bother coming :lol:

QPR scored both their goals in the 93rd and 94th minutes to level the score.

Holloway just went on a rant about everything, the referee, Aston Villa, his own fans, Brentford, the referee from the last game he played, probably more I've forgotten :lol:.

Holloway is a tool to be honest. People seem to like him because he's a "character," and knows how to make a colourful, deeply problematic analogy or two, but I find him insufferable.

I should dislike him as he is a Gashead, but I can’t help but like him. He’s a decent enough manager and makes me laugh.

The only thing I dislike about him is his insistence to calling us Notts Forest

I was reading a comparison story the other day about Blackburn and some of the other teams in the EFL that have been shafted by dodgy ownership - I actually think we are in the worst position out of all of the clubs who have had issues. There is talk that part of the condition of the sale of the club was hat relegation to league one and below brings massive compensation to Venkys.

Portsmouth at least have managed to get their owners out and are on the road to recovery. Our situation is miles, miles worse than Pompey or Wimbledon or whoever, because it looks like we're stuck with our crooked owners for the long haul. :dread:

So they starve the club of funds whilst simultaneously funneling money out of it, get the club relegated and somehow end up with a massive compensation payout?!

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Asset. Strip.

I mean I know I got the piss ripped out of me, but its so obviously true that many clubs in football today are experiencing this. I just happened to pick one that wasn't. I could have picked from about 10-12 others!

Time for Leeds v Villa :nod:.

It's been a while but I'm actually making it to the game tomorrow. Booked seats towards the West Stand just so I'll be closer to Nige :wub:. Hoping for a swift recovery after the disappointment of Tuesday.

Decent performance. Would have comfortably been 3 or 4 nil on another day. Still not promotion class though.

How did Forest get on? Do I still need to mind the gap?
