    All this talk of PB out, and yes I agree - time to go... But, who would legitimately take over the reigns? Knowing how Ron likes a 'name' I wouldn't be surprised if any of the following are on speed dial at the moment: Mark Warburton Paul Lambert Billy Davies Simon Grayson All of the above...

    Great win at the weekend and a really important three points going into a crucial run of December fixtures. Feels like the next month will define our season, good run and we'll close on the majority of teams in the play offs / automatic spots. Poor run and it's mid-table obscurity for this...
