    Quite right mate.

    I was hoping to make it but I'm on holiday with Mrs Smug and she's been patient with me going to Bolton, etc.

    I once left her alone in Italy while I went back for the di Canio 3-0 ...

    ... I blamed @Gordon Armstrong, he got me the tickets <laugh>

    Loving the in-depth OP.

    I'll go for a scrappy 2-1 win to the lads. Willis with the winner.

    Just been looking at the league table...gap is 5 and 3 points... we do not want it to get any bigger!

    Not had a chance to see Burge at a match yet, but what I've seen of him in the highlights, he looks the better of the two.
    I have a gut feeling that JR will not drop him for today's match because he was outstanding against Sheffield United the other night and Ross will not want to demoralise Burge by dropping him after playing so well.

    Burge looks capable of playing to avoid us postponing a game for internationals imo.

    As we've another cup tie to play, with possible progression, I wouldn't want us to create another backlog like last season.

    Similarly I have not seen Burge play...McLaughlin was for me last season our player of the year
    Currently he is not maintaining the high standards he set last season... so over to the manager to make the decision.

    It's good to have 2 good keepers

    Great OP as usual RTB, thanks. Some tough decisions for JR today, opportunity to send a message to the squad by shuffling the pack after a midweek win. Never expect us to get a clean sheet at home at minute so going for 3 - 1.

    I'll be happy with a win today, though I hope we can win comfortably, so I'm not biting my nails, and pulling out, what little hair, I've got left on me head, for the final 5 minutes of the game.
    2, or 3-0 for me.

    It’s great to beat Sheffield Utd but this is where it’s important, we need a good league win today for a few reasons!

    Grigg will finally score with a header and today with a bit of luck, 1-0 or 2-0 ? we could go 2nd as Cov vs Donc a tough one to call i go 0-1, Ipswich to win 1-0, we will go above Blackpool with a win, Rochdale v Wycombe 0-0, Shrews 0-0 fleetwood.

    Two shirts unclear - the first looks to be Lynch possibly (ahead of Hume) but the last is totally obscured.
    We are lft with Hume, McGeady, McNulty (fit ?) and Embelton.
    Providing the picture is accurate & up to date. Pick your own 1st eleven.

    I've had my doubts about whether or not McGeady unbalanced the team.

    If he doesn't appear, and we put in a good performance, it'll make me wonder a little more.

    His moments of magic are fabulous but it's a team game and we've often looked disjointed.

    I'm not sure yet but I'm watching the situation.

    Would be nice to see the team really attack the opposition today
