Seems as though Middlesbrough fans absolutely hate Tony Pulis, despite doing well. Must be record quick time for him for his own fans to turn on his brand of football.

Think it's similar to Mourinho now in that people know what they're getting before he even turns up.

Only 21 minutes into the match and Derby are all over Middlesborough. Harry Wilson is playing a blinder and should have 2 goals if not for a fantastic save and the woodwork.

This kid is going to be some player.

Lawrence, Wilson and Mount don't belong at this level, it's bordering on unfair they're all in the same side. Full credit to Lampard too, he's got them looking as talented as they are.

Who’s Lawrence and is he on loan from somewhere too?

Sure it’s been covered in here but detested that squiggle on the players shirts - assumed it was shite manufacturing ideas to jazz the shirt up

Had no idea it was Mind sponsorship to raise awareness of mental health - fair play to the football league

If Leeds had a cutting edge they’d be walking this league, as it is they seem to run out of ideas in the final third

Leeds score with a handball- good to see the officials are consistently shite throughout all the English leagues. He has completely lost control and Forest are frustrated as they feel every decision has gone against them.

Feel a red card is coming in this

Forest dropping points from a winning position is a constant theme. The manner they do it is the same everytime too; sit back and forefeit all their attacking threat compounded by defensive substitutions. Karanka needs to snap out of the habit and sharpish.

He's probably the most boring and negative manager in the world. A lot of Middlesbrough fans weren't bothered with their relegation a few seasons ago as Championship football actually seemed fun compared to the boring and defensive tripe they served up in the PL week after week.

Leeds should always be on TV because they have Bielsa in charge and I'd rather watch Bielsa ball than some of the dross sides in the Premier League

Bonkers game at Norwich. They're on some run.

Was 1-1 with ten minutes to go, they go 2-1 up and then 3-2 down. Then score in the 92nd and 97th minute to win 4-3.

pleased for Norwich, not that I watch the league! But glad they stuck with Daniel Farke and they are going well this season.

Nobody can ever say they don't get a fair crack at Norwich. Smith and co are loyal to the point it's detrimental sometimes.

Yep it's either Leeds or Villa.

BTW the ref has been shocking, letting tackles go that should be yellow & red cards, then booking a Leeds player for nothing.

Sheffield United are the worst for being on every week. Including today they're on 4 times between now and Boxing Day and they were on telly for the Sheffield derby and local derby against Rotherham recently.
