    I think the Swans will bounce back after their loss against Charlton. Reports are that Swansea played Charlton off the park for large portions of the match but lost after two stupid mistakes from set plays.

    Cheers,

    A promising start for the R’s!! Ledesma looks a terrific addition and Parejo, although only on loan is class. Leigertwood looks strong and assured in midfield and for the first time in a very long time … I am feeling “hopeful” What a difference a few months and a lot of money can make 🙂

    I assume by “nice opening” you are choosing to forget the Carling Cup. Up the Blades!

    Wolves were poor. We need another CB!!!

    Few spelling mistakes in their, but the one i’d like to point out is:
    **Kightly, not Knightly.

    COME ON WOLVES!

    I think it will be Birmingham, QPR, and not sure about the playoff winner.

    Tough break for my Blades to start. That late goal seemed alot like the one that cost the USA 2 points vs Netherlands in Beijing. At any route, what does everyone think about the possible promotees? My Three to go up are: Birmingham, Sheffield United (which made that first match all the better) and QPR over Crystal Palace in the play-off final. Any thoughts?
