Not sure you should be Man City/Boro/Wigan and Luton were the teams I backed to win their leagues (E/W so any of the promotion places is good enough) I am pretty bad luck for teams I back like this.

Your E/W bet is still looking good! What odds did you get? :eh:

Apparently it's our first double over Norwich.
You were the best team on the day. Sadly below Ipswich on GD but still above Leeds so happy.

You measure your season by being above Leeds Utd!?! If that's the case you'll never go back up!

Both Norwich and Leeds and well below the Preston NE's, Bristol City's and tiny Brentfords of this world and the season is now over for you. You should start pointing the finger of blame and clear out the slackers, rebuild for next season and thank your lucky starts that you had at least a few good matches to avoid the same position the lacklustre (what's a bigger word than lacklustre) Sunderland find themselves in...

Bad case of bird flu? Maybe Auntie Delia has a recipe for sick canaries......

Ipswich seem to have nailed themselves to the middle of the championship, despite war between the fans and the manager and operating under the most ridiculously constrained budget from Marcus Evans (£5.5m spent and £18.45m received from selling players since 2012). Hard to see how he'll attract another winning manager given the treatment of Mick McCarthy, so next season could be "interesting".

A high five to Brentford as well. Holding Fulham to a draw. :)

Cardiff still have a good chance of that runners up spot.

P.S. Apparently Wolves are now certain of promotion.

Wolves are promoted and just 1 point of winning the league.

Hopefully a straight swap Wolves for West Brom for me (provided we do what we should and stay up) although never like going to Wolves a nasty place to visit.

Hopefully Carduff also come up then I will be in the Directors box again as the Malaysians are big on superstitions and the two times before we did not win there 1 big loss and 1 bore draw so they will want us there to keep that run going.

I long ago gave up hope of the top six let alone automatic promotion. Beating Leeds and Ipswich in the table is all I have left.

Hope Richard has recovered from celebrating Wolves promotion. Personally I am hoping they go up as Champs

Ahhh! Italian cats :D

Last week I went to Bovington Tank Museum with my sister, my niece and her daughter. There was an Italian tank there and one of the volunteers told my niece that it was unusual, as it has six reverse gears and two forward - in case the enemy came from behind! My niece didn't understand...... :roll: Presumably the French battle flag being a white stripe over a white background would be lost on her too - and she's a teacher for goodness sake.

Where's good old fashioned chauvinism when you want it? :eh:
