      True mate, it's sad but that's a nice plack. I thought I heard something today about the club now being owned by the fans. I saw an image, which I can't find now, with the fans unveiling the word 'OURS' in the crowd. They have been through the mill so I wish them the best of luck.

      Looking forward to watching the highlights of the first day tonight. Why the hell are they on so bloody late though??

      Watched them last night, they play some great attacking football. Looking forward to seeing them test themselves in the Premier League next season.

      Sean Dyche will do a great job next season. Similar to Brendan in the Championship (his former colleague) he's done a great job in getting a not so talented group become a very talented group. Not too far from being touted as a definite England manager.

      Well done Burnley. Much deserved.

      After selling Austin, I remember reading an article saying Burnley will go close to being relegated. They had no goals in the team and were relying on a lot of gambles to stay in the league.

      Showed them!

      Yeah, will be interesting to see how Danny Ings and Vokes adapt to the Premiership. I think Ings in particular looks like a good talent.

      Two playoff places have been decided; Derby and QPR. Wigan and Reading are in 5th and 6th but Brighton, Forest and Ipswich are all pushing for a spot. I'm hoping to see Andre Wisdom help Derby to a playoff win.

      Massive final day in the Championship. Birmingham score a 90th minute equaliser to rescue the point that keeps them up on goal difference. Their manager, Lee Clark, ran into the stand after the final whistle to celebrate with the fans.

      Then at the other end of the table, Brighton score a 90th minute winner which takes them 1 point ahead of Reading and into the final Playoff spot, Reading could only manage a draw against Burnley.



      Just incredible scenes, football at its wacky best.

      I'm so bored at 7 in the morning, so I decided to watch Derby vs QPR. It is so freakin' sad that Derby f***in' County are unable fill Wembley in probably their most important match of decade.

      I think they did sell their allocation. Of course some tickets go elsewhere - hence the gaps both in Derby and QPRs ends

      Derby could have played until next week and still would not have scored it was one of those days.

      I watched from about the 20th minute on and gotta agree here. They had a penalty shout in this first half when Hughes was taken down, but I can't remember Derby really testing Rob Green too much. Heart-breaking to lose to 10-men at the death like that, but that's football sometimes.
