I take it all back.

strawberry float West Brom.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Ended up following along with the Championship final day - what a crazy league :lol:
It's very entertaining from afar, but not so much when you're in amongst it - hoping Villa can avoid a return there next season :slol:

Leeds and West Brom seemed to be the top two for most of the season, so can't argue too much with them going up, even if I'd have preferred other teams.

Forest :fp:
Brentford :fp:

Leeds' open-top bus :fp: :dread:
Blues retiring Bellingham's shirt :fp: :lol:

Never a red for Brentford, and still not optimistic with such a narrow lead, but would have bitten your hand off for any kind of win tonight given how superior they’ve been to us this season.

Can't stop watching our goal from last night: https://streamable.com/uug4nv


It's a thing of beauty.

Those Fulham goals were utter class.

3 goals from free kicks in 3 games in a row too.

They look good don't they? Weirdly, even though they finished 3rd, Brentford were definitely the team I'd feel most confident of getting by. Our defence makes the odd mistake they can get away with against most Championship teams, but not those Fulham forward. And I don't like playing that other lot at the best of times, but definitely not in a play-off.

I would prefer Brentford but if you do win, good on the Swans and I'll root them on in the final.

Edit: hadn't realised this had already started!

Edit again: hadn't realised you were already losing 1-0.

Unsurprisingly after making zero subs Sunday our players look knackered :dread:

Terrible defending. Should probably be out of this already but if we can knick the next goal you never know.

Oof. Similar finish to Leon Knight against them in the 2006 play off semi, same end too. Can’t believe we’re still in this. They are miles better as a team.

Made a go of it but just not good enough in the end.

Really can't deal with the Brentford love in though, its ridiculous. I nearly through my remote through the TV at points there.

I think fair play to them. There’re a great side to watch and haven’t exactly splashed a ton of cash around to do it.

I think back to previous campaigns, how devastated I was by the 2006 loss after being in the promotion race all season. How nervous I was in 2011, again because we deserved it and it would have felt crushing to miss out. This time though it was utterly mental that we were in them at all and it’s hard to feel gutted about it.

Fair play to Brentford, really hope they win the final.

Would like to see us stick with Cooper and ideally if we can get the players on loan for another season and see what we can achieve.
