Norwich will stay up, just – but it’s curtains for Charlton, Plymouth and Southampton!

It has got to that stage of the season when everyone is starting to look at everyone’s run in. Whether you are vying for promotion or desperate to avoid relegation, who the teams around you are playing seems to suddenly become very significant. This is definitely the case for Norwich who currently sit in the […]

Plenty of positives from Southampton game

We dropped two points against Southampton last night and it was a bitter pill to swallow. Having played well in the first half, we appeared to be coasting at 2-0 against our relegation rivals, so there is no getting away from the fact that it was a disappointing result in the end. However, it is […]

Got any sympathy for Southampton?

They’re not having the best of times on the South Coast at the moment are they? After their awful 07/08 season they get rid of one of the most respected young English coaches in the game (Nigel Pearson) in favour of a guy with no knowledge of English football, they announce plans to close-off parts […]

Southampton to close parts of St Marys next season

Southampton have announced that they intend to close three of the four corners of St Marys next season to cut costs. From Saints will be closing three of the four corners of the stadium for home games next season. This will affect Blocks 1-3, 12-14, 36-39. Club staff have been looking for ways of […]

2007/08 Review: January – featuring Crystal Palace, Bury, Barnsley, Leicester and Southampton

2008 began with the traditional trip to Selhurst Park but unlike recent years didn’t end with a traditional defeat, Darel Russell putting City ahead only for Clinton Morrison to level things up at 1-1. A home FA Cup third round tie followed against Bury, and despite creating several gilt-edged chances City were grateful for Gary […]

2007/08 Review: August – featuring Preston, Barnet, Southampton, Hull City and Rochdale

The 2007/08 season kicked-off with a 0-0 draw away to Preston North End on 11th August, and approximately ten seconds of coverage on ITV1’s The Championship the following morning. Most were agreed that Preston, who had narrowly missed out on the play-offs the previous season, would be there or thereabouts come the end of the […]

On loan Lucketti won’t play for Southampton against Sheffield United

Admirable loyalty or is he just being a bit of a cowardly, cowardly custard? Read this and make your own mind up. I’d be inclined to go for the latter…

Poll Results: Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or Blackpool – who won’t be very happy on Sunday?

67% of voters agree with me and think the Foxes are for the drop. City’s weekend opponents Sheffield Wednesday only picked up 2% of the vote, so people are either extremely confident that Leicester are doomed or they don’t fancy our chances at Hillsborough on Sunday – probably both. Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or […]

Poll: Southampton, Leicester, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry or Blackpool – who won’t be very happy on Sunday?

It’s the final poll of the season (until I think of another one anyway). Southampton’s point at West Brom last night means there is still a real battle on for the third and final relegation place in the Championship, with the Saints, Leicester City, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry City and Blackpool still not safe. I’ve had […]

Championship Predictions: 28th April 2008

Oh, the sweet feeling of being able to take a look at the Championship table without coming over a little peculiar. Here’s how I think the final league table will look: West Brom (81pts) Stoke City (81pts) Hull City (78pts) Bristol City (74pts) Crystal Palace (71pts) Watford (70pts) Wolves (70pts) Sheff Utd (67pts) Ipswich Town […]

West Brom v Southampton – and why all Canaries should be cheering on the Saints tonight

Until 5pm on Saturday afternoon I was pretty desperate for Southampton to get a thorough stuffing tonight at the Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion. With their wretched goal difference a defeat for the Saints and a draw for the Canaries against QPR would have made us pretty much safe. Now that the threat of relegation […]

The Week in Review: 21st-27th April 2008

Monday 21st April 2008. On Monday we speculated on the reasons for Kieran GIbbs starting against West Brom, and looked at the possibility of Darren Huckerby staying at the club on a pay-as-you-play deal. Tuesday 22nd April 2008. On Tuesday we had a look at the week’s Champions League action, and pondered the future of Alex Pearce. […]

Poor old Southampton – and my god look at Stoke!

Now that we’re safe I can look at the Championship table in a relatively calm state. No longer am I peering at it from behind the sofa, or feeling the need to turn the TV over every time it appears on the screen. I’ve been playing with the BBC Predictor for a number of weeks […]

Looking forward to Saturday’s game? I still can’t make my mind up…

I usually look forward to the last home game of the season. I enjoy the awarding of the Player of the Season (although if anyone other than Dion wins it this year I think I might try and start a riot) and, more often than not, I like the lap of “honour” the players do at […]

Championship Predictions: 20th April 2008

Ok this is getting silly now. There’s only two weeks left in the season so you’d think it would get easier to sort out the mess that is the Coca-Cola Championship, but it’s still all over the place. Here’s where I am today: West Brom (83pts). Stoke (81pts). Hull (75pts). Bristol City (75pts). Watford (73pts). […]
