    15 premier league teams yet to bring players in. Some people I know are reigniting the anti Tan thing and such because we have not yet brought anyone in. Makes me laugh and pretty pissed off if I am honest. People need to have a reality check on how far we have come as a club, and how the club is managing the expectations. From a few Q&As and the End of Season awards I attended, the club is clearly following the policy/approach they said they would take. IMO, there is no evidence to suggest the Club is lying, going back on their words or misleading the fanbase. Getting the team ready for Saturday should be priority at the moment.

    They’re down anyway.

    You can’t concede the amount of goals they concede and expect to stay up.

    They had their new manager boost, picked up a few points and now things are sliding back to where they were. I’ll accept that Ranieri has got them a bit more organised but that’s a bit like saying Boris Johnson has tidied himself up a bit.

    The way I see it Huddersfield are down and I don’t see Fulham doing enough to stay up. That leaves us needing more points than one other team to survive. Problem is I can see Southampton and Burnley picking up wins here and there to stay up. That leaves Newcastle. What we need is a run of defeats for them to turn the atmosphere toxic up there and the whole ‘Ashley out’ thing to start up again. Looking at their next run of fixtures they’ve got some stinkers along with a home game against us. If they fail to beat us then I can see them looking in big trouble and under real pressure by the middle of feb.

    I’m hoping Benítez gets pissed off with Ashley not backing him in the transfer window and quits.

    Hull City are close to landing Cardiff City defender Matthew Connolly on loan for the remainder of the season.

    Head coach Nigel Adkins admitted yesterday that a deal had been struck to sign a Premier League centre-back and it is understood the target in City’s sights is Connolly.

    The 31-year-old has been told he can leave Cardiff this month ahead of his contract expiring in the summer and the centre-back is known to be keen on sealing a move to the KCOM Stadium next week.

    Connolly already has four promotions out of the Championship on his CV following spells with QPR, Reading, Watford and Cardiff and will be considered to be a direct replacement for Tommy Elphick, who was recalled by Aston Villa ahead of the transfer window opening.

    The last 18 months have largely seen Connolly serving as defensive back-up for Neil Warnock and his only appearance this season came in the EFL Cup defeat at home to Norwich in August.

    Connolly was an unused sub away to Liverpool in October but he missed last weekend’s FA Cup loss at Gillingham with a virus.

    Adkins expects to conclude the capture of Connolly on Monday and then turn his attentions to landing a new winger and centre forward ahead of the January 31 deadline.

    City host Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow hoping to narrow the seven-point deficit on the Championship’s top six.

    That would be good.

    You do get the feeling that if he left they'd be screwed. The problem is that these days managers don't quit as they'll lose out on a bumper payoff - far better to just wait for the sack.

    I watched this on Sky Colonel, and his body language worried me a bit. Not upbeat, pugnacious or controversial like we would suspect. But shoulders slumped and talking like a beaten man. I hope this doesn't cascade to the players. In Neil we trust.

    I fancied Hull for promotion pre season. After we beat them up there, Nigel Atkins interview impressed me.

    Kenny Miller is available for not much money, should cheer Steve R up.
