 Yes it's quite a shock. Partly self-inflicted though with the appointment of Wayne Rooney after sacking John Eustace when they were in a play off position. Really unlucky with Tony Mowbray getting ill. They would almost certainly stayed up if he'd been manager for the rest of the season. Hopefully he'll be better soon, he seems like a really nice guy. 


They've got new owners so they can get back to the drawing board in League 1 and maybe even repeat Ipswich's efforts. Their recruitment needs to improve though. They've taken four ex-QPR players this season: Laird, Roberts, Dozzell and Sanderson (although he was formally at Birmingham) and certainly the first three have all shown to not have much fighting spirit, which is why QPR fans were relieved to see them all go. All talented players but flatter to deceive.

Well done Ipswich. What an achievement. Hope they and their fans have a decent time in the Premiership and they can hang onto their manager, who's done a phenomenal job. He, Danny Rohl and Marti Cifuentes have been a breath of fresh air in the Championship this season. I can see all three going onto bigger things.

Also looking forward to the play offs this year. Should be really competitive. You'd think Leeds would walk it but they've had a bad run of form recently. The other three teams must be thinking they're in with a chance.

Birmingham may have been relegated, but one of their fans is definitely up for a playing contract with somebody.  biggrinbiggrin

I see Spartans beat Peterhead 7-2 in their play off match and then lost the first left of the final away to Dumbarton, 2-1. Second leg at home, must have a good chance! Come on The Spartans !

Blyth Spartans are not The Spartans.

I might get to The Spartans game tonight, though I'm pretty busy before I leave tomorrow for a week in Aviemore ( and they are not quite as local to me as they used to be since I have recently moved elsewhere in Edinburgh ).

I'll report back if I do make it.

I won't make that game. Too much other stuff to do.

I have actually moved to Newington area, near Surgeons' Hall.

Sadly the Spartans drew 2 each and didnt quite make it on aggregate. Good effort for first season in the league though .

Well done Oxford Utd. The underdogs winning the League 1 play offs.

Another nice away venue for next season.
