It's Official II

Thanks to Doncaster winning the League One play offs, there are now two clubs in the Championship who have not played in the top flight of English football.

We shall wait and see if Doncaster do a Bristol City and get to the top of the table for most of the season. Maybe unlike City, they'll get promoted!

Donny Done Good

Congratulations and welcome to the Championship to Doncaster Rovers after their 1-0 over Leeds United. Another year in League 1 for so called "big club" Leeds who along with Leicester will be lamenting their divine right to be in the Premier.

So next season's table looks like this:

Bristol City
Cardiff City
Charlton Athletic
Coventry City
Crystal Palace
Dervy County
Doncaster Rovers
Ipswich Town
Nottingham Forest
Norwich City
Plymouth Argyle
Preston North End
Queens Park Rangers
Sheffield United
Sheffield Wednesday
Wolverhampton Wanderers

It's Official

Plymouth are now the biggest city to never have seen top flight football after Hull City secured their passage to the Premier League by beating Bristol City 1-0 thanks to a goal by Windass.

In from Premier League: Reading, Derby, Birmingham
Out to Premier League: West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City, Hull City

We're now awaiting the result of who will come up from League One as Doncaster prepare to fight it out with Leeds.

Out to League One: Leicester, Scunthorpe, Colchester
In from League One: Swansea, Nottingham Forest
Play offs: Leeds v Doncaster

Time to Say Goodbye

It's official, Ian Holloway has left Leicester under "mutual consent"

Ha, as if. His cards have been marked for a long time and probably got out before he was pushed out. So King Lear has finally been beheaded, and as usual the whole affair proves that the grass is not always greener on the other side.

Though Holloway's garden will be soon.

End of Season Report

I was going to do an End of Season Report (I might still do one), but have been too busy recently to actually do it.

In the meantime Babararacucudada has a comprehensive season review that probably could not be topped if I tried:

Couldn't have happened to a better manager.

Sorry the supporters have got caught up in this.

Have fun in League One.

That's All Folks

Wolverhampton Wanders 1 (Olofinjana 88) - 0 Plymouth Argyle

Bit of a boring end to the season, with nothing really to play for except the chance to keep Wolves out of the play offs, and we didn't do that off our own backs. A shockingly officiated game with shockingly strained "football" on offer by Argyle who showed no spark, just grim determination to egg out a 0-0 draw. Unfortunately the anchor of the team was taken out when Timar was stretched off with what looks an horrific head injury, leaning to Wolves taking the lead. By which time they had to score 2 goals to reach the play offs, but even so their support remained staunchly quiet for most of the second half. The biggest cheer from Argyle not surprisingly came as numerous fans kept an eye on incoming scores, when it was confirmed that Leicester have been relegated; the Green Army failing to provide vociferous vocal support. When you consider that this was just a formality game, and most supporters having bought tickets before the Preston defeat, then who can blame them? So all in all a poor afternoons "entertainment" on the door step, but a nail-biting end to the league.
