    If we don’t go up this season I genuinely don’t know what the next step is. Half the squad, if not majority are out of contract in the summer, next season could just feature majority of our youth academy 🤷‍♂️

    Why would you have to feature a majority youth academy team when you've probably got the biggest budget in L1 with 30k+ attendances every week :D

    Good job for the league that Oxford turned that around otherwise you’d have had everything sorted before the final match day in league 1
    Not sure it counts as slipping when you’ve got about 13 fit players @iHilarious but we will see

    Only time will tell! Accy are in good form so it’s an interesting one

    Burton are a tough opposition so even if you do slip there’s no guarantee

    Lincoln better put a strong team out on Tuesday

    If either of us win they haven’t got a chance surely, just down to GD

    That penalty is disgusting

    We went 1-0 down today to a goal that was 8 yards offside but the ref overruled the linesman because the ball through to the player miles offside got a tiny deflection
    Utterly baffling

    That penalty was awful but thb thats just what football is now. The Europa league this week had 3 pens given with VAR when all 3 were clearly wrong decisions. Luton won a soft one against us today that shouldnt have been given as well.

    Tear up next week, actually looking forward to a champ game for once.

    Who’s betting Sky have Watford and Norwich on instead of games that matter.

    Our game against Wycombe isnt that exciting. But seriously shef wed and Derby are 2 big clubs to be where they are. Rotherham also have a big say in this still. Im glad the seasons ending though we've had nothing to play for, for quite some time.

    Bloody hell Rooney has made a right mess of that Derby job, next week should be fun

    Absolutely no idea how we're going into the last game with a chance to stay up. We've been absolutely shocking, other than Bannan there's no effort, ability or will to win in that team whatsoever, we're only still in it due to Rotherham and Derby's bad form not because we're fighting to stay up.

    Derby really couldn't wish for better opposition in a winner takes all game, no way we'll win that - we've just strolled through 4 "must win" games against "on the beach" opposition as if they were pre-season friendlies which could have seen us safe already so no reason to think they'll suddenly start battling now. We also specialise in ending other teams' winless runs so Derby can relax. Can't wait until the summer to get rid of most of the spineless wasters, wish we could get rid of Chansiri as well.

    Looks like we'll play Blackpool in the play off Semi Finals, then Lincoln / Portsmouth / Oxford, or even Charlton still. Not particularly optimistic given our recent run but the win vs Plymouth should be a good boost

    Yup absolute nightmare for you lot to end up against a team that’s just beaten you twice
    Just pls don’t have Charlton in the play offs, us and Oxford both deserve it after we got shafted with the first month of the season

    Wow that Peterborough penalty is actually mad, how blatant do you want to make it you are looking for a pen :lol:

    Watching it again you could argue Szmodics fouls the defender on the initial ball in, then fouls the next defender with his ridiculous spin thing and somehow gets a penalty himself out of it :D

    Who's the best young players in the championship?
    Seen the big American striker play against N.I think he's Barnsley or something looked very good.

    Based on FIFA:
    Omar Richards - Reading
    Josh Da Silva - Bristol City
    Ben Cabango - Swansea
    Tyrese Campbell - Stoke
    Tyrhys Dolan - Blackburn

    I’ve excluded the pair who have already gone up

    Only 80+ potential not on loan in L1 is Ricky-Jade Jones

    Although Kwadwo Baah is debatably better

    We have a few who will be up there next season, Tav, Fry, Bola, Dijksteel.

    That Yank for Barnsley is like Drogba.
