    Feisty game, both sides should have had a penalty, both sets of fans and players hate the ref, lots of handbags, ref hasn't a clue what to do. Somebody will get sent off the way this is going.

    Swansea the better side so far, we've had the better chances.

    Fulham's first goal attempt comes in the 46th minute (off target)....bit grim so far

    Very luck win against a very spirited Peterborough side. They can feel hard done by tonight. Dembele is an absolute baller.

    Shite, got what we deserved, nothing...against a very ordinary but better organized team. Get a decent manager in now in international break.

    Absolutely stonking second half, utterly relentless. Better finishing makes it 6 or 7. Swansea went from the best opposition I'd seen first half to falling off a cliff second, knackered maybe?

    Good performance today. Managed to keep a clean sheet and got some goals for once. Barnsley were shite and, on that viewing, will be relegation contenders. Can only beat what is in front of you though.

    A vital win to stay in touch with the pack.

    Derby deserved their point in the end but it was a better 2nd half performance from us even before the sending off. Afobe and Saville missed two absolute sitters mind.

    Hmm , bad day at the office with Hull , Derby & Cardiff getting points but positives with the fact we didn't get the battering that most of the unknowledgeable thought we would .

    They dominated possession most of the game but we deserved a point whereas Mitrovic scores his only chance with once more sh*t defending from a cross our lumbering giant up front can't stay onside & indeed likes hitting the woodwork .

    Only 1 point from 6 in the 2 home games this week is very poor but hey ho .

    BIG win for us, really good confidence booster after a tough run of games, especially coming from behind too.

    Two goals for young Clarke too, only made his debut earlier this season. Hopefully he can be our temporary answer up top now until Joao is back. Puscas' bad form continuing, that is now 23 games for Reading and Romania without scoring..

    Keeps us just above the relegation zone (after points deduction applied)

    Solid performance today - a tweak to the formation by Cooper and we actually got out of the blocks quickly and put Preston onto the backfoot early doors which we didn't do against QPR and Sheff Utd. Preston offered little really and looked poor for much of the game although Riis looked fairly dangerous when he got on the ball. Johnson was the big difference for us with his ability to get in behind defenders bringing us so many chances this season - January is going to be a long month whilst we try and fight the vultures off! Also worth a mention is Jack Colback who has been reinvigorated under Cooper - I've been his biggest critic but he has been immense since Cooper came in and not just with the defensive work he does but the fact he is now constantly involved in the final 3rd as his goal showed again today!

    Nice 3 points to go into yet another international break with

    Not been too bad here mate ;) :D

    Should have scored at least 6 today but a great win nonetheless. Davis was brilliant once he grew into it and Stacey was MOTM in my opinion.

    Nothing to say about Swansea other than their behaviour was absolutely embarrassing. Got exactly what they deserved.

    Delighted with that, I was hopeful of a win but that was much more comfortable than I imagined. Keeps the feel good factor up under Cooper as it was a first of winnable games at home I hope we can go on a run now

    The home form had become a little concerning, even after Hughton had gone so to win this comfortably (admittedly against a poor side) at home and to hear the CG as loud as its been in a while is a real plus.

    What's your feeling on Mighten after today? I don't want to be picking out players after a solid win but I just can't help but feel that he's not developing how we expected - not sure if that is a reflection on him or maybe it appears this way just because Johnson has gone so far beyond him. He worked hard today but he seems to be a real lightweight and struggles to get past defenders, although he's a good option for getting a ball in behind the opposing defence, I'll give him that!

    Well he's turned Colback into Gazza in the space of a few weeks so anything is possible

    Very important win today. After a dreadful October where we were pathetically soft in defence and threw away three leads including a 3-0 lead against Cardiff, two consecutive tight 1-0 wins have been just what we needed. 6 valuable points to get us back into the playoffs and confidence building clean sheets and effective game management to see out the win.

    It has come at a cost though, we're less of an attacking threat and both games have been a bit of a grind. Going forward we will need to find a better balance between being tough to break down and still retaining an attacking threat. The last two games have been similar to the dull grind of last season and while a reset was necessary after the farce against Cardiff, if we continue playing the same way with little attacking threat the 1-0 wins will start turning into draws and narrow defeats and the season will peter out into a turgid bottom half finish again.
