Yes, it's good that Blackpool are back in the top flight - in fact, they were in the bottom division as recently as 2001. That's not quite as quick a rise up the divisions as say, Fulham or Hull, but pretty impressive, given that I thought they were overachieving in merely being in the Championship, and they were one of the favourites for the drop at the start of the season.

Personally I thought there were four really good footballing teams in the play-offs this year. There were some great matches (notably Forest v. Blackpool second leg) and I think Nottingham Forest, Cardiff or Leicester would have been equally welcome back.

Well done to Millwall for getting in the championship League about time as well.

I agree that it's a good thing, Tranmere now won't have to play them next year (having said that, beating them did help keep us up). Also, with Norwich and Leeds gone too, there's fewer 'big' teams in the division. Sheffield Wednesday is another 'big' one but neither Plymouth nor Peterborough are truly big guns.

Seriously, I think Millwall did deserve to go up, they're a better side than Swindon in my opinion and they seemed too good for League One. I am really glad Leeds are up too though, they've suffered enough.

Of course Leeds going up restores the Hull-Leeds rivalry. Hard to believe they're in the same division again after being two divisions apart for the last two seasons.

If you were so minded, Digi, you could go to the match at the KC next season wearing one of those scarves that seem popular these days, with Hull City on one half and Leeds United on the other. It would encapsulate some encouragement on your part for your home town club and at the same time honour your late father's support for the Whites.

Everybody is allowed one season in the sun, steelclaw, but don't be too demanding. I'm feeling a bit prophetic here today. I think seventh or eighth is the best you can hope for next season. :D

You can not be serious :lol: 5th at worse.
When Gerrald and Torres leave Liverpool where do you think they will finish? I reckon they will have thier worse season ever in the Premier.
Man City will have a team that can't jell together however much they spend.
Aston Villa will finish in the bottom half along with Bolton who might just get relegated.

Liverpool to get relegated, anyone? They're in 18th place at the moment. Never known them be that bad before. In the meantime, Spurs are flying high in 5th. Looks like they're no one season wonder, so far.
