    Fleetwood have had a decent season, tho. You were never going to roll them over.

    We've won 4 out of the past 24. That's relegation form.

    88 away fans tonight

    Fleetwood have a 6'6" defender. We played long balls up to him to see if he could win headers all game.

    He could

    As much as he's a cock, he'll get them out of that division.

    There's no way Evans will sack Lambert (even though he should).

    He gave him a 5 year contract less than two months ago

    Even if he does find a pot to piss in, Colin is basically Mick McCarthy, whom we (again, justly) didn't renew the contract of (we didn't sack him).

    So that would be three appointments since Mick left, in the space of less than two years. Which is unheard of (Mick was our 13th manager since 1936).

    There's something more fundamentally wrong than just Lambert (who is shit and tactically inept)

    League Two is dead. At least Bradford canít get relegated.

    At least they've come to an agreement - now to see if FA + EFL agree.

    Wonder if it is, then will form the framework for the other leagues?

    edit - Not PL, obviously.

    You're probably all wondering, what possible motivation can Ipswich Town, 11th in the league, have for finishing the season?

    Well readers, we assume its because our skinflint owner, who signed Paul Lambert to a 5 year contract in February, put a clause in his contract that if we didn't finish in the top 6, he can get fired without penalty.

    I hope this isn't true

    Nigel Clough resigns from Burton to get himself off the payroll. Hes an absolute saint and Im still mad at the way we treated him when Schteeve became available.

    He is a legend.

    I'm happy we didn't sign him during the Fawaz era - he would have walked in less than 40 days! (and rightly so).

    So we (10th in the division) have tabled a solution to ending the season by having extended playoffs for the top ten teams in the division.

    I'm so embarrassed

    League One & League Two clubs vote to end seasons early.

    Both tables will be settled on points per game, while promotion, relegation and the play-offs all remain.

    I know they have games in hand but Sunderland finishing 8th on 59 points and Wycombe finishing 3rd on 59 points is the most Sunderland thing ever.
