It's least every season is interesting.

That said, I'd like to see Soton and West Ham get automatic promotion. I'd rather see them in the EPL than Wigan, Bolton or Wolves.

Starting to heat up in the Championship in pursuit of those auto promo places. WHU should knock off Donny at home (however, our home form is pretty shit!) and hopefully Southampton stumble with Barnsley, and Leicester knock-off Reading . Auto promo is vital as on the day anything can happen in a play-off. COYI

Fuck. The Hammers have dropped 4 points at home against weak opposition. Looks like 3 teams now vying for the 2 auto spots

Reading have jumped above West Ham in the Championship, but we can jump right back to top spot by beating Leeds 12 nil away from home this weekend.

MK Dons are doing their usual "sit in the play off places" trick hoping no one will notice them

Four wins a draw and a two losses from their last seven games. That's a fairly decent return and good results against Chesterfield and Leyton Orient should see them cement that spot.

Apprentice of the year for league 2, Nick Powell, our top scorer, has been linked with both the Arse and Pool...future England captain right there people mark my words (did anyone see his goal on the football league highlights show on Monday?), and with Max Clayton knocking in goals for fun we are seriously close to a playoff spot...

Tremendous night of results... Leeds ship 7 (seven)* at home to Forest. West Ham draw at home to Boro and miss chance to close the gap on Reading.

And the might Whites win 2-0 at Rochdale, that's 11 from 15 since the new manager came onboard and unbeaten.

Have it

* - anyone who used to watch Grandstand and the Vidiprinter will hopefully notice the 7(seven) reference

Injury time goal for Palace, 10 games unbeaten. Far too many of those being draws though.
Muscat admitted after the grand final loss to Sydney FC last month that he would be haunted for some time for sending his spot kick into the post, a miss which helped Sydney claim the championship.

Hmmm Orient spanked 4-1 by The Franchise and with Sheff Weds to come on Sat they are in danger off being pulled in to a relegation dogfight. Only 5 points clear at present.

As amazing Vaz Te's efforts were this morning I do think we've left our run too late and play-offs it is Le Fondre has fired the Royals into the EPL and I can't see us catching the Saints (3 points and 3 goal difference) in the last 3 games. Anything can and will happen on the day in a play-off game, and unfortunately our home form has been rather ordinary this year - too many draws. Hopefully a bit of momentum in the last games of the regular season can carry over into the play-offs. COYI

Yeh, I can't see us going past Soton with just the 3 games left, but you never know i suppose.

Saints have to travel to Peterboro' and Middlesboro' and then home to Coventry.

Fat Sam is driving the Venga bus to Bristol City and Leicester, before hosting Hull last game.... could be interesting.

(Reading are at home to Forest on Tuesday, so that's them promoted).

Tranmere - safe after a 1-0 win at Walsall. Caretaker manager/ prodigal son managed to glean 20 points from ten games to date. Looks like he'll get the permanent gig shortly.

All academic now. 5 points off Soton with 2 games to play. They blew it last night with another draw. You're early season prediction is looking good... sadly.

The O's making it tricky but with Rochdale last game of the season and Wycome away at Sheff Weds we should stay up.

Are fox showing the play off games for champ, league 1 and 2? Can't find it on the planner...

14 games unbeaten and we are scraping in to the playoffs...7th is good enough to go up when your hitting form this time of year.

Plus we picked up a nice little cash injection from 'pool the other day...things are looking promising at the Alex.

Best hope is for a Soton draw and a 4-0 to West Ham. I can't see Soton losing. Play-ofs here we come!

I'm hoping for miracles this weekend Fucken gold if the Sky Blues can knock off the Saints and we beat the Tigers at home

Been following a bit of the press regarding Big Sam and what will happen for next season if we don't get promoted (which is a very real possibility). A lot of Hammers fans are quick to lay the boot into Allardyce, and talk shit about his direct style of play. Fans who talk about the West Ham way of football are tripping! The West Ham way in recent years has been to lose games. Big Sam has brought stability to the club and squad, and praise should be heaped on him for his fantastic efforts. He's even kept Waldorf and Statler aka. Gold and Sullivan quiet his season.



The idea of bringing Dicanio in to manage is way premature, and Dave and Dave have already said that Allardyce will be about next seson, promotion or not.

Here's for a massive favour this weekend! COYI

2 - 0 up in the play-off semi! Could have been more if not for a few dodgy finishes (i.e Nolan's header). COYI, keep up that recent home form and get us through to Wembly!!!
