    No longer just a red button game.

    They have the Brentford game on SSFootball (ch403) and our game on SSAction (ch407)



    Useful for those without Sky red button feature or for those who wish to record.

    FFS ! Adds to the likelihood of defeat. Hope we still get our £10k though pays for the kitchen staff.

    Because traditionally we under perform/ collapse or have bad luck in front of the cameras.
    Off hand can only think of Leeds and Wednesday away last season when we were really good.

    The cameras have absolutely no bearing on the result of any game. There are cameras there for every single game.

    Of course that’s the case but it is weird how some of our worse performances have generally been the main match on Sky.
    Thought the Villa game was the exception showing the watching viewers just how good we can be, until the last 10 minutes.

    It’s a similiar thing to “we never perform in a playoff final”
    It’s different managers, different players, so of course should have no bearing.
    So it’s really weird how we never turn up every single play-off final, don’t even score a single goal.
    If we get to the final under Wilder part of me will be confident but then I’ll get these creeping illogical feeling that we won’t score and we’ll lose in some weird unlucky fashion.

    We’re normally on TV when we’re playing a good team or when it’s a derby. No real surprise that our worst performances have come against WBA, Leeds, Boro etc. Pigs played the most shamelessly defensive game I’ve ever seen and Rotherham played like it was do or die.

    Conveniently we had little trouble beating mediocre non-local teams like Blackburn, Reading or Brentford when we played them on Sky.

    Playoff finals is harder to explain mind, apart from we went into the last one slightly shell shocked from losing our leading scorer and had (from memory) a half-fit Craig Beattie and Chris Porter as our strikers :(

    Yes, they should give us the £170 million Premier League money even though we're not in the Premier League

    Derby at home, maybe our best performance of the season on TV (second half, anyway)
