    Could be a coincidence, but Steve McLaren was in the stands in Leeds last game

    Can you use it in a sentence?
    I think Heckingbottom has 1 win in last 15-16 games.
    They'll probably sack him when they realize this.

    I couldn't believe it when I saw Simon Grayson was a close second favourite to Steve McClaren for the Leeds job with the bookies, although I did think McClaren was the most likely or, after him, Gordon Strachan.

    Cardiff and Millwall equalize so Cardiff miss the chance to go level on points with Derby in the 2nd place.

    Bristalbul! Sunderland came from 3 goals down to equalize 3-3 in the end. That's a massive chance wasted for the Robins. Derby and Fulham draw as well. Wolverhampton marching on, instead. Middlesbrough and Hull also win. Brentford-Preston 1-1 and Ipswich-Burton 0-0.
    Sheffield United win and Wednesday draw early today.

    That's funny. Specially after the club's twitter account posted and deleted this

    Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday win midweek's games. Cardiff are just 2 points behind Aston Villa in 2nd now.

    Preston stop the leader Wolverhampton, while big win for Fulham against the most in-form team of the league Aston Villa. Cardiff are 2nd now, as they beat Bolton 2-0 yesterday. Brentford back to the winning way against a terrible Sunderland side. Q.P.R.-Bolton 2-0 and Burton-Nottingham 0-0.
    2 draws today: Norwich-Ipswich 1-1 and Leeds-Bristol 2-2 (Leeds were 2-0 down at HT).

    Aston Villa draw in the end. Cardiff have a big chance to increase their gap on the 3rd spot now. Brentford, Middlesbrough and Sheffield United win, instead. Big wins for Bolton and Burton on the bottom. Nottingham-Reading 1-1 and Millwall-Sheffield Wednesday 2-1.

    The wheels still aren't coming off for Cardiff, they truly are this year's Reading.

    I reckon that Sunderland will stay up, they should have been adrift at the bottom long ago but the dismality of the other relegation candidates could see them needing just a win here and there in order to avoid relegation.

    I frequent their forum and the fans seem totally against every single player. They have no money and another relegation could put them into serious trouble.

    But I still believe they’ll stay up. Sunderland have done it enough times when they look dead and buried.

    You wonder how Sunderland could survive for so long in the Premier League. They are rotten to the core.

    Everyone draws today, bar Cardiff. Wolverhampton waste a 2-goal lead against Norwich.

    @Sly, Wolverhampton have run out of fuel in the last 3 games. 2 draws and 1 defeat (against Fulham yesterday). Still a good lead on the 3rd though.

    It would be hard to mantain that kind of level the whole year. Some key players are out of form. They will still win the league though.

    Still hoping Preston can keep on the tails of the playoffs. They've been solid this season after being potential relegation candidates.

    Adama Traore would be quality if he had half a brain. Goes past players like they aren't there.

    2-0 Boro vs Leeds at the minute

    Many games have been postponed due to the bad weather today. There are only Bolton-Preston, Bristol City-Sheffield Wednesday, Derby-Fulham, Millwall-Sunderland and Nottingham-Birmingham.
    Fulham with an away win against Derby to get the 3rd spot. Bristol doing well as well, as they are 4th. Preston still in the race for the top. They beat Bolton 3-1. Millwall-Sunderland 1-1 and Nottingham Forest-Birmingham 2-1. Middlesbrough beat Leeds 3-0 yesterday.

    Cardiff keep the second place after beating Barnsley 2-1. Fulham and Aston Villa keep it up with them though, while Derby draw. Middlesbrough 6th with a win against Birmingham. Preston close to the first 6 positions thanks to a win against Bristol. Reading-Bolton 1-1, Sheffield Wednesday-Ipswich 1-2, Hull-Millwall 1-2, Burton-Brentford 0-2 and Norwich City-Nottingham Forest 0-0.

    Hull vs Norwich is mental. Hull 4-3 up now after being 3-1 down and 4 of the 7 goals have been penalties. :lol:

    Cardiff almost threw it away, as they only win 3-2 in the end after being 3-0 up. Comeback done for Hull against Norwich, instead. From 3-1 down to 4-3 up. Fulham bombing forward, as they beat Preston away. Good win for Middlesbrough against Barnsley, while Sunderland lose again. Reading-Leeds 2-2, Sheffield Wednesday-Bolton 1-1 and Millwall-Brentford 1-0. The Lions are in the playoffs zone! Aston Villa-Wolverhampton now.

    Villa go 3-1 up against Wolves. Been a great 2nd half from them.

    Millwall? They're 10th.

    Next 4/5 fixtures probably slightly favour Wolves so they should be alright but they need to be careful, Cardiff are in great form and aren't far away now.

    Haven't seen enough of Cardiff to comment, but Wolves, Villa and Fulham all look really good sides at this level from what I've seen. Boro also look like they're coming into form at the right time. Looking like it'll be a cracking run in.
