    Seeing as we're less than a week away;
    1st. Cardiff
    2nd. West Brom
    3rd. Leeds
    4th. Fulham
    5th. Brentford
    6th. Stoke

    22nd. Millwall
    23rd. Wigan
    24th. Charlton

    Entirely based on the squads teams have as of today so Brentford keep Maupay and Benrahma basically.

    @wheelerdeeler

    Not terrible to be fair. Could have 5 of the Top 6 right just not in the right order (we won't talk about Stoke, let's just pretend I said Millwall 6th and Stoke 22nd).

    @wheelerdeeler You should start a save with Original Hazard FC

    After Googling, they're Jamaican. Can you even play in the Jamaican League?

    Not a bad point considering Oliver Langford was constantly 🎃🎃🎃🎃 us over.

    You would have to start a new save and get a league update but you probably don’t want to do that. Just found them randomly in my save and found the name great and wanted to see if it's something you are interested!

    Think if I started a new save now I'd download a thing to go down to the lowest possible tier in England and do the "Create a Club" thing and go all the way up. But I'm pretty locked in to my Kettering save still. Want to see what year I'll end up in.

    Win tomorrow and 5th place is on. Now imagine if Norwood goal against Villa had actually been given.

    Never thought I’d see the day when I’d be watching Arsenal/Tottenham games hoping for them to lose to benefit us.

    Here is an idea, Create a Club and create a bunch of us that use these forums!

    We only really need a point to be assured of 5th, Cardiff need 4 pts and for us to lose to both Barnsley/Stoke.

    Derby are finished, Bristol City and Preston are finished. Swansea are almost finished. Can't call it between Millwall and Cardiff, both have two games against teams near the bottom.

    Fancy Brentford for the Autos, they've got the momentum that usually sees teams win the playoffs.

    It's looked like us against Fulham for a few games now and honestly, I think an away second leg suits us. If we can grab a result at home, I really fancy us to 🎃🎃🎃🎃-house a win away.

    If West Brom don't go up automatic again, I could see Cardiff or Millwall in the playoff final. That's like the opposite of momentum.

    Swear players are just getting sent off now on purpose so they don't have to bother playing though.

    I wouldn't say no if we're sticking around in the Championship next season.

    To be fair it's not the worst shout in the world. Don't know what the PPG is, but if you had your Harris form for the whole season you probably wouldn't be far off. And I thought Warnock would be able to get you to bounce back.

    @iHilarious My Da just phoned me to say is Joel cooper away as Linfield are looking to replace him. He thinks with Full time training he will rip most teams apart in league 1.
    My Da thinks Cooper is better than Sykes and Whyte were in our league.

    I’ll definitely take him then :lol: Sykesy looks a lot better than when he started, could be a pivotal part of next season’s push providing we keep the bulk of our squad

    Wycombe Rotherham and Coventry all get to vote on whether league 1 has a salary cap next season even though they aren’t in our league :joy:
    Couldn’t make this stuff up

    Seems odd at first but then again if the three relegated teams from the championship got a vote is that much fairer? At least the promoted teams have experience of the likely impact whereas no relegated team is gonna vote to have to slash their salary spending if they’re a big spender.
  • Hicksy2011

    I mean doing it without them or waiting another 10 days for these championship teams to be confirmed
    The issue is that teams that are relegated aren’t going to be held to the salary cap on the first year, so they can essentially vote to have a big advantage if they get relegated straight back

    Imagine if Villa actually stay up. West Ham playing Watford tomorrow as well.

    "Leeds United will have to pay €21m (£19m) to sign RB Leipzig striker Jean-Kevin Augustin should they secure promotion to the Premier League."

    Yikes if that's true. They've also had to sign Helder Costa as well. Neither of whom have really make that much of an impact.

    Beg Watford beat West Ham tomorrow so the Villa/West Ham game last day of the season is a proper "whoever loses goes down" game.

    Saw that yesterday. Not ideal when they're about 35m spent already without any improvements on their Championship team. Can't see them doing a Fulham/Villa either, so be interesting to see what happens.

    If Watford and West Ham have got any sense then there’ll be a lot of passing around the back tomorrow :lol:

    Wouldn’t it know that they’re not actively playing the game and disconnect them?

    Just need to put an elastic band around the analog sticks.
