    Looking at the league table after our win tonight Watford are 3rd and Derby are 4th. Both are on the same points and have an identical goal difference. So it should show Derby above Watford because 'D' is before 'W' in the alphabet. Rather pedantic I know but is it anything to do with Watford being nearer London than Derby? Dunno

    According to RD, we were 3rd until Huddersfield scored their late second, whichsubsequently knocked us below Watford.
    Didn't catch the finer details though! Sorry! Dunno

    For the avoidance of doubt, I have just got my abacus out (it always seemed bigger than that when I was a child), and Watford have scored 30 goals to our 28.

    I'm in the UK that day. Even in the area but can't get to see the game. We are over for my lad's graduation as a qualified commercial airline pilot. The do is in Oxford and starts at 6. We'd miss the start of the graduation ceremony and some things, not many mind, take precedence over the footy.

    An early kick off would have been great. Could have seen the Rams and made the graduation ceremony................... yet another reason to hate Sky :)

    He's got to get a job first. There are 1000 unemployed CAP's in Holland and more worldwide. It's a tough do getting a job. He has the advantage of having passed all of his theory and all of his practical exams/tests at the first attempt which will give him a head start against many of his competitors.
