    Good result tonight for you Bmovie? What the hell happens at the final whistle? It seems that Alan Lee punched Jedinak.
    Great result and performance. Like chalk and cheese to the last 3 months under Grayson. The players went mental when we scored and celebrated like we'd won promotion at the final whistle which says to me that Grayson had lost the dressing room.

    Alan Lee clashed with Jedinak (who had been a cock all night, as had most Palace players diving and feigning injury...until they went behind) Didn't see it but he's supposedly elbowed him, which he has lots of previous with. He's a bit of a liability to be honest as well as being shit. Think Holloway blew it out of proportion though, but he's an odious knob as well.

    £15m for Zaha? WTF?!
    Just hope its a blip and we can have 3 points next week ;p. Sooo over hyped it really is unbelieveable but he's young and English so you pay the overpriced fee.

    He'll be offloaded to Sunderland in a year or two.

    Pretty sure he's still in Jack Hunt's pocket.

    Can't remember the last time we put in a good performance but somehow we just keep grinding out results.

    Sign of champions and the fact that everyone else is so inconsistent. If we remain unbeaten this month then we'll go up as champions :D.

    TBF I think it's just a universal law of physics that Cardiff could have 0 shots to Leeds' 916 and still win :)

    Think it was 1957 when we last beat you, I'm starting to believe it's actually a physical impossibility.

    A few were pretty vocal about him though and the appointment was awful in the first place when O'Driscoll was doing a pretty decent job.

    It would be interesting to know what the owners expectations are for this season as bar a few decent players the rest of the side are average at best.

    Today's news looks like it might be the final nail in the coffin for Pompey. Quite surprised that the FL have taken such a strong stance on the whole matter, they've basically signed their death warrant.

    Bit weird to think your biggest rivals might just disappear.

    Feel really sorry for the fans over all this and it does look like they will go under at the end of season unless the fans can stump up the cash which is really unlikely currently.

    However, this could have a happy ending as fans could set up a new club and have a lot of fun travelling around grounds like Rangers have.

    They've got a fair amount of pledges but they won't get them far in League 2 especially if they are having to pay rent on the ground.

    I think they are starting to realise that a phoenix club is their best long term hope.

    Rush of betting on Nicky Butt to manage Huddersfield apparently.

    Hehe, felt that both teams were pretty happy with a draw and was nice to see Alan Lee again, but the same can't be said for Gerrard.

    Nice little bit of banter going between us and the Britannia stand today and they even joined in with the Ayatollah.

    Just stayed around Nandos area and had a pint in the Vulcan i think. The Police presence was tad OTT though and getting the car out of the town was a pain.

    Yeah, the pitch was pretty awful today and coming up in lumps at some places which didn't help with both our passing today. I did however like the look of Scannell who causes us  a fee problems.

    Scannell's ok but there's never an end product. Goes on some great mazy runs and has great pace and strength but literally always tries to beat 1 man too many. Scores no goals, gets no assists.

    Decent pub is the Vulcan. Surprised Police let you in there though, you must have been covered up!

    Haha, it would appear so.

    Pretty sure we wanted Adkins but we aren't a big enough draw.

    My money is on him not taking another job until the summer. Just after the window closes is the worst time to take over a team.

    It seems every managerless teams' fans are crying out for him. I would love him to take over Leeds in summer after Warnock's done fucking up.

    6 more wins and i think we'll have promotion sorted. Bristol are probably the worst side i've seen this season and we didn't really have to get out of 2nd gear.

    The first time in years that Bristol don't get a bubble trip and they smash up a few local boozers and attack random people in the city centre...clap!!!

    Alex McLeish was sitting a couple of rows behind Ken Bates at the Etihad yesterday. If that happens I will cry.

    Also big loves for Robbie Rogers who we just released from his contract who came out last week. He announced his retirement from the game at 25 in the same statement, I really hope the two aren't related, would be tragic.
