Surely you haven’t thrown in the towel for the premiership Wally, there is 2 points between the top 4 at the moment if Boro were to beat Norwich then you are in with a great chance and also the two teams that fail to make automatic promotion will get their 2nd leg play off games at home. God only knows what we will do about our ground if we make it to the promised land. All four teams have given great entertainment this season and it’s such a shame that one or maybe two are going to end up unlucky. This league is much more exciting than the premier so in some ways it wouldn’t be the end of the world if we missed out but I would still be gutted.
I fear it will be two missing out, I think Ipswich will win the play-offs. They’ve hit the form at the right time and they won’t have the dissapointment (and hanging heads) of just missing out on automatic promotion.
The key game now is Norwich-Boro. If Norwich win, then I think they are up. Bournemouth look unstoppable at the moment, I have a soft spot for them having made them my second team while at University there, but why this season!
Watford are in great form, but we’ll always concede, and it will only take a day like we had against Ipswich where none of the strikers turn up and the automatic place is gone.
Whoever goes up, I wish them well, but what a fantastic league this is! 4 teams fighting for two spots, and the next four fighting for the remaining two play off places.
It’s no wonder the Cider Army are so excited to be returning. I reckon play-offs for them next year.
