    Certainly imperative that we don’t get relegated.

    Well if we went down from this position then we'd certainly deserve all the mocking we'd get!

    It would take having Michael Oliver to officiate all of our matches.

    The manager change hasn’t worked out as I’d hoped it would.

    Disappointing.

    We can just cling to the hope that they’ll fall apart late on, which would be all the more sweet.

    More dropped points for teams behind them.

    Yeah but they aren't popular enough to play on a Friday though are they.

    Pompey have imploded.
    Black Cats may return to some form?

    Just a draw for them on Sky..

    Coventry goalie found his inner Ben Foster at the end...

    Mind you the Luton goalie got away with a clear foul in tbf first half .

    Let’s face it they are probably a mid table champ side now. Plus their all new tiny stadium may push for promotion with that boost. Won’t last. No financial backers of significance would go near that hole, the racism, **** town and violence will see to that so they won’t do a Bournemouth and they certainly aren’t old money and big.

    Let them have their day.
    3 more seasons in the prem and a cup and we have eclipsed them in everything that isn’t head to head ( and we haven’t been able to beat them head to head in the last, what?, 15 years as they have been pub team level) As a mid table champ side we will inevitable play them and we can level that out over the next 20 years.

    This is going to be good, plays into our hands?
    I predict we will play them in the next 3 years and also play in Europe. We need to impress upon the manager, players and pozzos the importance of thoroughly beating them.

    Overtake l$%*n in terms of all achievements that matter and the pozzos get a stand named after them as far as I am concerned

    Good point.

    Add 30 wins to the Hornets column.

    2005/06 we last played them in the Championship - years before Deeney came to the club, but we do have a couple of "returnees" who probably understand the significance of the rivalry. Ben Foster was our 'keeper and played in both derby matches that season. Adrian Mariappa was just breaking in to the first team squad that season as well (although he didn't play in either of the games).

    Make or break day for Luton as they hear if the local council will give the go ahead for the Newlands project at Junction 10 which will fund their new ground...

    They might be our rivals but surely with us having loadsamoney we could stretch to buying them a 6-seater paddling pool?

    It looks like they'll be moving swamp in 2020.

    Compadre, where’s the solidarity?

    Bedfordshire is the Venezuela of the Home Counties.

    Good - hopefully it bankrupts them. And the first game in the new ground is againts Millwall

    Not sure it'll be quite that quick. I reckon they'll do well to start 2022/23 at Power Court - it's literally a contaminated derelict waste ground. I think I read there's also a river they need to divert. And that's assuming there's no legal challenges which could delay it further.

    - fans completely unaware of a club's history, traditions and rivalries.
    - fans based thousands of miles away in little-known third world countries, completely detached from the reality of supporting a local team
    - fans who judge loyalty on amount of souvenirs one owns
    - fans bedecked in replica kits, caps and half and half scarfs

    Welcome to the premier league.

    Presumably there will be at least 100 or so legal challenges (how many members are there on this forum again ?).

    No, no. Surely you’re confusing it with their current ground?

    Are you talking about their current 'ground' or their future one?!

    The nearest bloke (hope his phone is waterproof) got a bad scratch on his back, looks like he caught it on the barb wire fence trying to get out the ground!
