    Unlike the rest of you, I’m taking a far more considered, balanced and entirely logic-based approach in hoping that FLDC win because I f‘kin hate Villa.

    It’s the worst possible final tbh but if I had to choose it would be Villa for me, they would have much more of a chance of winning the league next season and personally I can’t wait to see the back of them Plus sky wouldn’t have their wankfest over the overrated Frank Lampard, happy days

    As I said in another thread, I think Villa will offload him. Albert is now 31 and the reality is he’s not the player he was. We saw some of the best of him and I don’t want to see the worst of him.

    This final is the worse-case scenario. Personally hope FLDC win Villa implode and have to sell Grealish et al SL invests heavily and we get Tammy back to fire us to top spot as the missing link next season. FL goes to Chelski as manager anyway and loses most games due to the ridiculousness of appointing such an inexperienced manager in the first place. XXDC come down after amassing a single digit total points value all season.

    This game sums up every thing that is disproportionately wrong with the EFL. Despite their unpopularity no one would grumble if this was leeds or a friendly West Brom. This thread would merely be about the match. But the fact it's vile and FLDC tells you all you need to know. It's a crying shame that the "winner" will not only enjoy the massive Sky Premier League riches but also escape EFL FFP punishment (whatever that is). If ever there was a case for the flagrant disregard of FFP then here it is with the two "finalists" which really should be a showcase for everything that is good about the Championship not the two best at bending the rules clubs . I really hope something can be done to not only ensure clubs adhere to FFP but also to stop this "gambling" on success.

    The fee isn't the issue, McGinn will be on £20,000p/w easy.

    From the verge of the England team a few years ago, then came over all Billy Bigspuds and basically threw his career away. I think the only reason they have been so hard on him, is that he's been pretty useless. If he had been a 25 goal striker last year, you would have seen them saying how much they need to support the player who has made a mistake.

    Banned from playing? That would be a bit ridiculous. Don’t see anyone else who drink drives being banned from work

    Just watched the rather lovely Prof Alice Roberts discussing her home town on C4. She mainly covers the Georgian period and how Bristol grew rich on the back of the slave trade with merchants such as Pinney and Coulson but also covers the chocolate industry led Fry’s. Looks at the Queens Square riots which were the bloodiest in English history. The programme is called Britain’s most historic towns and can be seen via catch up if anyone is interested.

    I leave them alone unless they speak to me. I only ever speak to them at an official function. I used to attend the APFSCIL dinners when I was a member of the London Branch in the 70/80s and would talk with the invited special guests then. Derek Dougan, Graeme Turner and John Motson spring to mind. The best however was a good half hour chat with Terry Cooper at a supporters club do. Terry would happily talk all day about football but I felt guilty about hogging him for so long.

    Agree and key being that they soon realised it was worth nothing near given the change in the market. On residential development CIL/S106 can take as much as 40% of the enhanced value to the developer. I was once responsible for a B1 property with a book value of £12m which, when revalued for potential sui generis occupation, dropped to £7m. So a £12m book price stadium is likely to be worth far less as a residential land proposition.

    I think it`s sort of accepted that you keep your place. I remember queuing all day for Millennium tickets (Brighton play off I think) and people were taking a break every now and again and returning to their place in the line. As long as the people around you are OK with it, no problem.

    You can't maintain a consistent opinion in a topic within a couple of minutes of contradicting posts, how the hell would you remember what you predicted this time last year?

    I’m in the same situation. I have a Samsung s6 edge plus, great phone but getting old now and hasn’t been supported for a while. Was going to jump back to a Huawei, I had one several phones ago when they were relatively new and unknown, I believe the quality has improved greatly since I owned mine, it basically saw out my contract and it just about had it. Now the phones are great quality it seems. I have never gone for Apple phones, and Samsung’s are nice but a bit full of bloatware and of course hugely expensive. I’m not sure this Huawei/Google dispute will be sorted out anytime soon though so i’m limping on at the moment.

    Believe so, but not £4m! Believe some of it may have been bought out by Baker deal, but never confirmed.

    Yep it’s definitely for the greater good in the long run for us. We have as good a chance as anyone next season given who has gone up and come down. Very little to fear next year. Let’s hope for a good transfer window.

    Someone asked earlier how much we would likely to be making. Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony is on record as saying they are making £150k profit from the concerts this summer. He was responding to someone moaning about pre season games being away. I don’t know how many/who is playing at Peterborough, but knowing the size of the ground I would imagine it’s less than Ashton Gate is holding this summer. So so they will make money, but I wouldn’t have thought the millions people are imagining. It’s more about profile. But every little helps!

    He can outdo Grealish on the diving front though

    Really? You do containment until about 70 mins and then after the opposition have run themselves ragged you make a couple changes and hit them on the break. It's usually a tactic used by an underdog and works quite well if your not the better side but hold some hope of winning. In an open game Villa would win 3 or 4 nill easily.

    Must say watching Derby is much like watching ourselves. Especially at home.

    Pretty sure they can't inflate the fee anyway, pre-agreed fee which by the sounds of it we triggered, Chelsea can't reject our offer only Jay can.

    There are a number of variants on this Joe - my expectation and I am most certainly not ITK - is that when we negotiated the loan part of it was Chelsea accepting that we could buy Jay at an agreed fee this summer assuming the player wished to come here and in turn we agreed terms with him. I don’t suspect that it means much more than that. The protection we have is that Chelsea are probably unable to inflate the pre- agreed fee by more than say 10% IF they get a better offer. So using purely numbers for illustration, Agreed fee £2m Offer from other club £2.5m We would only have to pay £2.2m - always assuming Jay wanted to come here - so, in my example, all that we actually have is a protection from being outbid, nothing more.

    At what point does a footballer make a mistake and engage in something criminal, and at what point are they a criminal who just happens to be talented with a football? Nile Ranger a great example.

    In football parlance - he gave them a decision to make - Stoke wanted him off the wage bill pure and simple.... Spurs for example didn't fire Hugo Loris and didn't half the Arsenal team get banned back in the Adams/Merson era when it was almost compulsory for Arsenal players to be pissed 24/7!

    Bizarre. That is exactly what I want as well (just without the marriage failure bit). I've been hoping for this outcome ever since the two final teams were known.

    Oh yeah, it was pathetic wasn’t it? ”ooh you really shouldn’t be in this division Sunderland, you’re so big and powerful, we love you so much Sunderland, please tell us you hate City Sunderland...you DO hate City don’t you? Please tell us you do”... Im sure they were planning to save that needy behaviour for Ipswich next season.

    Keith Welsh I think. It was Stuart Munro with the pass back. And the ball did take a nasty bobble.

    Thanks. Yes I do like the look of the Honor and Huawei phones, but just a bit wary of what's going on with the Google stuff. Probably a good time to buy then in all fairness as the prices are dropping, but it is a risk.

    Could it I wonder lead to a chance the playoffs getting replayed- or is that too late in the day? Or Derby, indeed Aston Villa stripped of promotion and a playoff final between Leeds-WBA as a) The losing semi finalists b) The fact they complied c) The next 2 highest ranked compliant sides?
