    6-0 to derby over two legs in the league, well at least it can't get worse...can it :laugh:

    No idea about how the last day went for derby but sticking five ruthlessly past Rotherham and scoring some nice goals looked quite pleasing. Guess we can only wait to see what happens here.

    Prediction - god knows, it's the playoffs.

    we were a little flat tp be fair plus Ipswich weren`t on the beach , they did exactly what i expected, sat and sat and sat did little just the odd counter.
    Keogh made a stupid challenge to give a penno.
    then it was come break us down
    their final 3 away games were 1-1 vs Sheff Weds, 0-0 vs Boro and 1-0 vs Us showing they are a capable side and very resilient.
    Thorne double leg break is a bit of a blow but we have Jacob Butterfield, Bradley Johnson and Jeff Hendrick to call on which is decent back up.
    I think we need a lead to take to the KC however slender it may be.

    So wierd usually if your team makes the play offs the fans are bouncing ( unless you miss out on Autos last day or summat ) but weve known for a month its gunna be play offs

    yet theres no real buzz things off the pitch ( with the memberships and allam nonsense for last 3 years )

    But also the fact the team we have on paper should of finished top 2 withouta doubt and weve deffo underachieved

    As for the game think if we take a draw back to KC that will be a good result and think we will 1-1

    Difficult to call. I'm swaying with Derby. I thought they underachieved but they clearly have one of the best teams in the league. Wouldn't be surprised if Steve Bruce pulls it off though.

    Easy win for Hull over two legs.

    Genuinely think Hull will be too strong for you, Brob. Nothing against Derby at all; I think you've had a fine season.

    Hull are decent but seem ponderous getting it forward and lacking attacking options when I've seen them. Think Derby have more attacking threat. Who knows, play-offs are mental.

    having attended both the 4-0 and 2-0 wins they didn`t look too impressive at all to me , its all different in the lottery i understand but 2 years back we did the league double over BHA then also did them twice in play offs so still optimistic

    Wonder how different their season (and Burnley's) would have turned out if they hadn't played silly buggers over an extra 500k for Andre Gray

    We sneaked in the top 6 on the last day of the season, don't think any Brighton fans thought we would go any further, if we meet you in the final this time round you will be slaughtered.

    Hull were the best team we played this season with probably the best individual players of any Championship teams, We beat Derby comfortably .....none of that means **** all though because Derby are looking the form team and I reckon they will progress.
    Good luck to both of you, glad it's not us again.

    Hmm, not sure about ponderous or lacking the options, its been our inability to break down sides that come to the KC and stick 10/11 behind the ball
    Current 2015/16 Championship Form Table, Last 6 Matches, Home and Away ......but youre right, form means naff all tbh, my heart wont take this :laugh:

    I think Hull will win this over two legs but it will be mighty tight.
