A few more TV games this season I think, starting with Cardiff vs Huddersfield on Friday followed by Leeds vs Wolves on Saturday lunch time.

Use this thread to discuss the Championship matches of this season.

Pin?

Gonna be at a Wolverhampton Uni open day so I'll miss the game. Fuck.

Really important that we hit the ground running at the start of the season. Elland Road is one of the toughest places to go, but we need to assert our authority early on the game. Get at them from the first minute, and expose their very leaky defense. It'll be interesting to see how the team gels together for the first time in a game of this importance. Looking forward to seeing who Stale goes with up front with Nouble, SEB, Doyle and Bjorn all battling for places.

I'll go with a confident 2-1 victory to kick off our push for promotion. UTW.

Jack Butland; Will Packwood, Steven Caldwell, Curtis Davies, David Murphy; Chris Burke, Hayden Mullins, Ravel Morrison, Darren Ambrose; Peter Lovenkrands, Marlon King.
Subs (from): Colin Doyle, Wade Elliott, Adam Rooney, Nikola Zigic, Nathan Redmond, Jonathan Spector, Pablo Ibanez.

Good luck to Butland and Packwood. Packwood looked good in pre-season and Butland looked strong in the Olympics.

Thought we was going to win and I was wrong. JUST scored a last equaliser with Nikola Zigic.

Blackburn drew.

An inept, insipid performance. Par for the course, though.

Watched the Leeds game. Warnock has them back to the dirty Leeds days and they will cause a few teams problems. Austin in midfield will pick up bookings but is the sort of cunt you need in midfield to get through this league.

Wolves looked a bit poor but things will pick up. Alot of quality still there and when the want aways leave they could have a decent side. Hammill,Pescko and Hunt is still a good set of wingers even without Kightly and Jarvis. Should still socre goals too.

Wolves were pretty rotten I thought. On paper they should have given it a much better go. I refuse to believe Ebanks-Blake and Doyle won't score lots of goals.

If one team could fail this season I'd love nothing more than it to be Leeds.

I hate Leeds fans
I hate Neil Warnock
I hate Paddy Kenny
I hate Ken Bates



Also on tonights match - Colin Kazim-Richards has had a good start to the season, pleased to see. Apparently he whipped his shirt off and kung-fu kicked the corner flag!

Two in two for us, and two in pre-season as well. Doing very well so far early in his Rovers career. Just came off injured, but hopefully it's just a minor knock.

Good win for Blackburn, sounds as though they deserved it aswell. I really hope they can kick on from there and get themselves back into the Premiership.

I enjoy it, but jesus, I'm having heart palpitations every few minutes. At least on the TV even when you get scored on you know right away.

Yeah, Radio football is under-rated but at the same time TV football is just better.

I hate Paddy Kenny. He's got the Leeds bug where he thinks because the club was once great they have the right to be loved. Wanker.

1-1 Chris Eagles. Both Forest players attracted by Lee's run giving Rickett's an easy cross in.
