    I saw a friend sharing a thing that Sunderland were extending their furlough if staff and not paying the difference to bring them up to 100% pay.

    I think a lot of clubs could be in a lot of trouble very soon

    Five wins on the bounce for us, one point outside the playoffs. I always said our fans are cranks.

    looks like our player of the season will be an EFL Accountant.

    Yeah, it's a tough run in!

    Speaking of runs, amazing that Wigan could go down. I think, if the season had started on 1st Jan, we would be top and Wigan would be second. They have had a really good run of form, so to get fucked by a fit and proper person would be a killer.

    Crazy run of results - I'm still holding hope Leeds choke again!

    We definitely will. Brentford will take 18 points from their last six games, and West Brom will get at least a point more than us. We'll lose to Derby in an absurd semi-final, and Fulham will win the final.

    At least the covids would save me another losing trip to Wembley.

    Same, although getting to Wembley would be amazing for us.

    Forest are one of a handful of English teams to have never played at the new Wembley (do we still call it new?). Don't think we've ever won a playoff either...Yay.

    The harder it gets for us not to go up the more Iím convinced it wonít happen. 10 points from 15. Thatís all we need.

    I know a few Leeds fans and they are all good guys. I think Leeds fans are like people.

    A Leeds fans is ok, a crowd of Leeds fans are all cunts.

    Oh, at our virtual pub night last night, my Bolton mate was absolutely dancing on the grave of Wigan. A few of us were bemoaning it all being a Chinese betting scheme and he couldn't have given less of a fuck, he's just delighted they might be going down.

    Those are two of a select few clubs (Wigan and Bolton) whom I can genuinely look to and think "okay, at least we're not them". Blackpool was another, back in the Oyston days

    For the first time in my life I'm hoping Derby get 6 points from the next two games. :)

    Funnily enough, there was an Ipswich and Gillingham fan on the call, too (my old uni bois) and its quite an odd quirk that we all had our peaks at pretty much the same time.

    I think the "A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals" quote has been proven to be horseshit these past few years. Specifically the first bit.

    The salient point I think is that a crowd of Leeds fans are bigger cunts than almost all other sides in Britain.

    They were the only visiting fans (other than Nodge) that always got an escort to the ground and a police chopper

    They are the only travelling fans who can sour the atmosphere for a full 90 minutes, for sure. Even the Millwall away lot take a break every now and then.

    Leeds fans by and large are guilty of the ďwe used to be good, who are you?Ē thing that everyone hates of Liverpool fans, but by and large most appreciate that we have no divine right and use gallows humour to numb the catastrophic failures. That said we do have a greater number than most teams of absolute dicks in the fanbase, as demonstrated in the Bournemouth 89 fiasco, or the Ipswich game that saw us relegated to League One. Iíll make no attempt to defend them, nor will any decent Leeds fan.

    I donít much care for Wigan, for Wigan fans, or for Dave Whelan. But a bunch of crooks have come in with the EFLís blessing, stitched up the club and fucked off, and the ones who now have to suffer the consequences are the players, the staff and the fans. And however I might feel about the club, thatís not ok. The only ones being punished are the ones who have had no involvement in any of this, and thatís just fucked up.

    If this were America, this is the kind of thing you could see the fans taking the EFL to court for letting it happen. Itís astonishing and a cautionary story for everyone.

    Has anyone told Derby theyíre three points off the playoffs with a game in hand? Second time in a row theyíre playing like a team in 13th whose season is already over.

    Derby on the rise in this game. Nicely threaded to Knight.
