Do you ever get the feeling…
at 23:48 22 May 2022

One of the reasons why I was fuming how that game ended as I just knew Sky would never shut up about it as the greatest ending ever in the history of the game. Every damn year we get reminded about it.

I hope today's events will now replace us so Villa fans get 10 years of reminders of how they blew it late on.

Oh OK. I know Leeds and Chelsea dislike each other but I hadn't considered Brentford a thorn in Leeds side.

Why did the commentator on Brentford v Leeds on MotD say the two clubs don't like each other? Where has that come from?

League 1 Play-Off Final
at 15:37 21 May 2022

I did post on similar lines a few months ago when Jamie Mackie told the simpering Sky host before Sunderland played Oxford that he was fed up of all the talk how Sunderland should be in the Premier league. As Jamie pointed out Oxford had a better playing style than Sunderland but all people want to talk about is Sunderland when it comes to league 1.

I was with a Newcastle fan a week ago who stated that he wanted Burnley to go down as not a big club like Everton and Leeds. Unfortunately it seems a lot of armchair fans and TV pundits have the same beliefs that only big clubs should be in the Premier.

These same people were probably totally against the breakaway European league but then seem to advocate a closed shop Premier league formed of the biggest clubs. No doubt this belief comes from thinking that the biggest clubs play the best football and have the most fans for atmosphere.

Sadly a howler by the Wycombe keeper could see the Mackems going up. There will be no praise for Oxford next season either if Sunderland go up as league 1 coverage will be all about Derby. Another so called club deserving of Premier league football according to Sky.

How many fans would we
at 21:00 19 May 2022

I recall our previous European ventures where we did really well in the early rounds scoring plenty of goals. Then we managed to lose 3-0 and 6-2 first leg leads against average opposition so dumped out on penalties and away goals in both campaigns. Just some of the disasters this football club has inflicted on us regularly.

I don't think anyone born in Merseyside would ever support a Manchester club. I think he started his playing days at Everton and Liverpool but it was Man City where he became a regular first teamer. I can't imagine him getting deliberately sent off so City won the title if it meant relegating the team he was playing for and paying his wages. I just think he went nuts and lost his head.

The way Huddersfield played against Luton I would have thought we could have beaten them had we sneaked 6th but not so sure we would beat Forest in the final.

If Forest do go up and become another in the yo-yo club it could be another long wait for our second win at the City Ground with their parachute payments. Our record against the clubs dropping from the Premier is not great with our finances.

I think Rooney, and many others, forget that we played most of the second half chasing the ball with 10 men so it was no great surprise we were tiring late on.

As for booting the ball away at kick off wasn't that more from frustration conceding an equaliser in stoppage time? I seem to recall Sinclair doing something similar in anger after the infamous Cantona goal.

Just seen Sky describe Nathan Jones as classy. Hmmm...

Match time revisited Saturday 1030am ITV4
at 21:44 14 May 2022

What I found odd was at the start of the programme the date 29 August 1981 appears. I have never known an FA cup tie to be played in August. Very odd caption.

Look at the players we had and compare the second tier quality we had then to what we had this season. Stainrod, Allen and Flanagan in attack, Currie, Gregory and Waddock in midfield, Hazel, Roeder and Gillard in defence, Hucker in goal and Venables as manager. That is some side for the second division. Streets ahead of what we have now as it is all about money.

I saw Terry the other week at the Celtic/Rangers match wearing a Celtic scarf. Maybe distancing himself from Chelsea now it is unravelling.

Personally I think there is only one place with Sheff Utd and West Brom still having parachute money. I expect both to do better next season. We will see if the money talks in the end.

The only fixtures we have next season to interest Sky will be Watford, Millwall, Leeds if they come down and Sunderland if they come up. I reckon we will have more 3pm Saturday games again unless we start brilliantly so Sky get interested.

We certainly played some good football last year but even then we had a problem scoring four or more. This season I can only recall the 4-0 over Reading as good as it got. By comparison Peterborough, Luton, Birmingham, Preston, Bristol City all hit five in a match and Blackpool got six. Most of those sides finished below us and it says something about our forward line not scoring enough hence so many one goal victories along the way.

Now Man City know what it's like to be one up with minutes left and to concede twice in a couple of minutes into stoppage time. Perhaps the work of God?

The problem next season is you will have three coming down loaded and if Sheffield don't go up then you will have them and West Brom still with parachute money. If it all goes to script with money talking, then there may only be one play off place on offer.

Everton could get out of it but if they can't win at Watford, 11 home defeats on a row, then they will be in a real mess.

They had nine out injured Jones says. They can still do it as Reading on the beach. Third 7 goal haul for Fulham this season and they have won over half their games by at least three goals.

Don't worry, the way we finished the season I can't see Sky wanting to show us as much next season. It was the way we finished last season with attractive football and were dark horses this season, that had Sky picking on us. I would think the dismal football from us recently will see us shunned unless we start the new season well.

Watford now lost 11 home games on the trot. Makes you relieved we aren't going up in a way. No doubt the parachute money will see them up near the top of the championship next season. So damn boring all this yo-yoing between the leagues.

That may be the case but it still takes time for a new manager to change things so their problems were sorted out very quickly as I thought it would be next season they would challenge.

Huddersfield also had a manager change and have similar budgets yet they have only lost 2 out of 25 games. Their squad is not that big nor is Luton's. We may be unlucky with injuries but that is no reason for stopping the attacking style of play and barely having a shot on goal in crucial games.
