    I think with that Derby are the biggest tinpot club in the football league.

    Sorry lads, we are pants. I did tell you.

    Looking forward to Cheltenham Town, the Papa John's Trophy group of death with Morecambe, Port Vale and Newcastle U21s, and the FA Cup first round.

    That’s one of the most embarrassing things I’ve ever seen in football, we didn’t celebrate getting to the UEFA cup final that much. Imagine jumping around like that cos you finished above Rotherham, Wycombe and a team who had a points deduction.

    Gg Oxford
    Sad truth is we have too many average L1 players in our squad, and had we been promoted we’d have got relegated straight away quite easily
    Guess I’ll support Oxford in the play offs, they’ve got up there enough recently and I can’t support Sunderland can I

    I'm hoping Oxford stay down, nothing against them but it's one of the few grounds in L1, the others being Portsmouth, Accrington, Fleetwood, Wimbledon and Cheltenham, that I've never been to. Forest Green if they go up as well.

    Just about the only positive of relegation is the chance to add a few new grounds to my list, Covid permitting. Everything else is just depressing.

    I bet I've been to a lot worse! It's just numbers, I've been stuck on 109 grounds visited (only watching Wednesday, not interested in going as a neutral) for about 3 years now.

    You should change that view and try to grab a couple of games abroad, it’s a great experience.. lad I work with does a weekend in Germany with his mates and gets 3/4 games in, based in Düsseldorf you are less than an hour from loads of cities... oh and your match ticket is also a free train ticket to get to the ground.

    I literally just came to say that
    I mean I’m not one of these people who expects them to all go sit in the dark and cry for a week
    But really? This should be a terrible moment in their careers and they just don’t care, get them all out
    I mean for Lee Brown that was potentially the last chance he’s going to have to play in the championship (he’s got next year with us and then gets released even if we go up as he’s 32 and L1 level)
    Why is he doing shots and cheering

    When we inevitably crash out of the playoffs, atleast it wont be to Charlton this time :)

    It does show how well the Cowleys have connected with the club that I’ve not seen one person say they shouldn’t get a permanent deal
    Actually quite excited to see what they can start building over the summer

    Shame the EFL don't have the balls to give them a points deduction now to send them down.

    Well it’s now going to decide the fate between them and Wycombe
    And given those ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Wycombe did something as bad as the ESL they deserve to get ❤️❤️❤️❤️ back to L1

    What did they do? If it’s about the points per game I can’t really blame them for being in favour

    Refusing to play the rest of the season while happily playing in the play offs
    A total contradiction and was totally about self gain
    Not sure if they got kicked out too in the end but originally they were voting for the salary cap to be imposed for L1 even after they’d been promoted

    Well it benefits Championship sides so that makes sense. I’m pretty sure they’d come down with a grace period?

    Well yeah that was the exact point
    They would have been able to come down and have a 4m budget or something while everyone else was stuck at 2.5m
    Thankfully that illegal cap has now been removed
