Thought id make a thread for all the championship games, see if we can get some activity in here,

Great 3-0 won over wednesday last week, top performance to go with it, hopefully more of that too come. Ipswich away next, we never win there :howler: so i'm not hugely confident, another point would be good.

Derby lost at Ipswich and didn't even threaten them. They are still alive in the playoff picture but they need to play better away from home, their form has dropped recently

Darren Powell apparently had a disaster of a game

the quicker albrechtsen and leacock are both fit again the better.

Preston at home tonight. We really need to win this one, away form has been very dodgy recently, need to keep the good results at home coming, still lots of injury worries atthe back not helping us.

By all accounts you guys looked awful at the back. We were little better, but controlled the midfield.
Yep, our good run was built on a pretty solid cb pairing of Albrechtsen and Leacock, since both got injured the defence has been awful, comical at times. The midfield was way off last night too, Addison looked tired, needs some rest but we cant afford to leave him out at the moment, keep managing to score goals when were playing badly though, which cant be a bad thing.

tough loss at Burnley, it was really over in 20 minutes

Derby are moving down in the table, but thankfully they are closer to the playoffs than the relegation zone because Charlton, Forest and Doncaster have been awful this season

Our away form is terrible, luckily our home form is still good.

shocking display, one of the most dire games of football i've ever seen, all we did was hoof it, and we've not even got the players to make that effective so its a waste of time.

Liam Dickinson 4 goals in 2 games for Blackpool :howler: oh dear
It's officially Jewell out time now i think judging by most fans opinions at the moment, he's had plenty of time now, and well, the Palace performance was as bad as anything ive ever seen from Derby, Wolves away next i can see us getting hammered and then the pressure will really start to be on.

Derby Derby Derby, your in a right mess. Why are you persisting with Jewell?

He may have been a good manager, but thats not a good reason to persist he has frankly made you a laughing stock.

Honestly i dont think we can afford to get rid of him, but then again if we're going to give him more money to throw away whats the difference. I dont kknow, didnt like him when he was at Wigan, thought he was just a hoofball merchant, and thats all he's proven to be here. We've not got an amazing pool of talent to pick from, but we have some decent players, but all we seem to want to do is get the ball and kick it as far as possible.

Though it seems he passed it around quite well against Wolves for a while 1st half, but ended up getting hammered, we need Barnes to come back better than ever or we'll be down there with Forest :(

Wishing Billy D was still incharge? Personally I thought he saw last year was going to be just an experience and was building to get you in the position to comfortably stay in the league in 24/36 months time and had a plan in place, fair enough it looked bleak but he wasnt making different excuses each week.

I find Jewell just looks at the short term and thinks by throwing money at it is going to solve the issue, he's done this at the clubs he has managed since Bradford. It may not be chelsea esque spending but for the level it was alot.

Also what is he thinking regarding Dickason? he is a relevation at Blackpool on loan and hes only played 3 games!

Your team could and in my opinion should be doing much better, good luck with the rest of the season you guys.

Oh hell no, cant stand Davies his style of football is just as bad, and the guy only looks out for himself, his plan was to try and get a better job, now he cant get one anywhere, shame. I wish the Gadsby board came in before Burley walked due to the idiots running the club at the time, best manager we've had recently by a distance.

The Dickinson issue is making Jewell look blatantly like the tool we're all starting to think he is, sending out players and bringing in ones not as good, great stuff :howler:

if we can;t beat Charlton tomorrow then I'll be really worried and I will start to think about Jewell going. He is looking clueless in the past few weeks but I think some fans are expecting too much from this team too early. I'd be content with a midtable finish yet some fans think playoffs is a realistic target :pp

But if they don't get the result against Charlton, they will see themselves in a relegation battle, something which nobody was thinking back in October-November

Lucky draw at bottom of the league, it looks bad. Its not so much league position, we just look clueless, no passing, we dont create any chances, penalty and long throw for goals last night, and the defence looks shaky as ever, though why he heeps playing Powell ahead of Tomkins, or even Nyatanga who im not a big fan of, but he's better than powell.
