It's the only way we're going to finish ahead of them the way we're both playing at the moment. They were even able to put out the deckchairs in Sheps Bush on Saturday for the second half - oh the humanity!

I don't think winning thanks to a last-minute penalty save is putting the deckchairs out.

You could argue that they got complacent at 4-0 up and took their foot off the gas. But as we showed against Sheffield United one side gaining momentum in a game and the other losing all momentum changes the game a lot.

I'm not going to start gloating if/when they get a points deduction certainly not after our own troubles last summer. And perhaps this summer coming for all i know.

To be fair, Monk has done a brilliant job for them with a squad that wasn't his.... shame DS has not been able to do the same

Yes I hate them as much as the next person but, quite frankly, (albeit with 11 or so regular settled players) Monk and they have done unbelievably well.  Which again proves the point that you don't have to sign a load of start thrown together to make progress in this league.

Slightly off-topic, but I wonder if Dean Smith could get a tune out of Gary Gardner as Monk seems to have done with him so far this season?

You have tarnished a reasonable post about Monk with your unreasonable sledge on Smith.
And dont forget they nearly threw away a 4 goal lead.

Monk's done a great job there to be totally fair and I thought he got the tin tack too early from trigger happy Leeds.

He needs to get a tune out of the players he's got first.

I don't give a shiny shite what Leeds fans think, in my opinion he did a good job as he is as Birmingham.

Guys with this amount of money do not leave anything to chance. If there was a whiff of issues relating to FFP then they very quickly made their first appointment not only a very experienced CEO  but a guy who helped write the FFP rules.

His first statement was along the lines of "clean slate" & "No issues with FFP"

They must know things we dont

We are getting good gates and have a rake of players out of contract in the summer. I reckon we will pull off a nice couple of sponsorship deals in the summer too.
