Comforting to know that the officiating in the Championship is even worse than in the Premier League. Absolute stonewaller for Bamford there.
I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and thatís being very conservative. So thatís £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head thatís £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.

Leeds really just dont want to get promoted do they

If they hadnt lost to Wigan they could go even on points with Norwich today. That Wigan loss is going to haunt them

Can all but rule out automatic promotion if they lose this as Sheffield play Stoke and Ipswich

They'll probably get their arse served to them on occasions next season but at least it's not another chronic football team to add to the list.

Probably Aston Villa to be honest, I know Dean Smith was loved at Brentford for the kind of football they were playing, though nobody really wants them back. Derby as ever would be a good addition to the league I think, but as ever they'll bollocks it up.

Yeah, probably right on all counts. Canít be arsed with West Brom coming back and hopefully Middlesbrough stay out of it.

Dont want Derby up, Mount and Wilson aren't even their players and they'll be a huge reason for them coming up, guess the same applies to other clubs too like Villa.

Norwich, Sheff Utd and Leeds would be great, all 3 clubs are fun.

Sheffield United will be another Cardiff. They don't have the quality, nor means to add necessary quality. They'll be 10 behind the ball every game hoping to nick goals from set pieces. Who wants that?

Least its their players though, I don't want to see a Tammy Abraham led Villa, or a Mount/Wilson led Derby.

Chris Wilder seems really sound too, I'll be happy for him.

Every Championship club loans players. Sheffield United have got 5 of their own, and had Woodburn earlier in the season. The fact their's have been less successful than the other clubs is neither here nor there. Henderson, arguably one of Sheffield United's best players this season is a Man United player.

You're right.

I still like Chris Wilder though and I'm made up for him!

We need Bielsa up in the play offs, him in the Premier League will be great.

Chris Wilder has done a great job for several teams now, and I'd be happy for him to take the team he supports into the top flight.  Obviously if he sticks 10 men behind the ball and we draw 0-0 at Bramall lane he's a c*nt. ..

As an aside, a good mate of mine is a Norwich fan and he's actually dreading next year.  They are going to get a shoeing most weeks, and where's the fun in that?

Could careless about the rest coming up. Id like to see Leeds, Norwich and Derby. Solely Derby because Lampard will do horrible and get sacked and would be nice to thrash his team.

Itíd be good if three of Norwich, Leeds, Sheffield Utd, and Derby were promoted because it would mean itís the second season in a row where none of the clubs relegated in the previous season are promoted. It would also be the case if Villa were promoted, but fuck Villa.

West Brom are shitehawks after how they treated Darren Moore, he was doing a solid job, but being 4th and right in the promotion mix wasn't good enough for their board it seems

Will Brentford be awarded a 3-0 win if Bolton go on strike? Itís lucky they canít go up or down as that would be pretty controversial if Bolton were due to play someone near the top or bottom.

For me anyone other than Boro & Villa, can't stand either, i don't mind West Brom apart from when they had Pulis as manager.

So, Norwich and Sheffield United are going to get promoted. Even if Leeds win tomorrow they'll have to hope that Sheffield lose on the last day while making up a 13 goal deficit as they have an inferior GD. Not going to happen.

Definitely more goals to come. I liked the mentality on show for those two Norwich goals though as they both came right after opportunities were missed, but they carried on and got the goals from other areas, regardless. Good to see, Farke will like that.
