People seem unable to celebrate without goading opposition players. It’s either got to be seven figure fines, points deductions or fences. If you think punching opposition players is ok you are retarded.

“Seven figure fines” - for the clubs or the individual?!

People complaining about Stewards...would I stand in the way of hundreds trying a pitch invasion on their wage? Sod that 

This is only about five seconds but it's the funniest example of Millwall stewards “trying to stop a pitch invasion” ever! I laughed long and hard ...

Do wonder if there’s potential to change the play off format to avoid the scenes seen at forest and port vale and have a one off semi at a neutral ground.

It’s no coincidence that both penalty shootouts so far have been won by the home side who had a passive advantage (yes i know they earned that over the season)

This sounded a bit off to me so I had a little look into the past records and play off semi's that go to pens are basically 50/50 whether or not the home team wins. Vale were 1st and 2nd to miss last night and were given a lifeline by the dreadful technique of the next Swindon player who stepped up. Might be interesting to hear what players would have to say about that but it seems to me that it's fairly random.

I actually meant more in connection to the fans coming on at the end. You never got it when fa cup semis were at neutral venues for example

If the Police are nowhere to be seen why would a Steward bother to be fair to them.

From memory fences were only removed following Hillsborough, so with all seater stadia, no safety reasons not to put them back up? But maybe misremembering. Would be good if players/management could stop incessant goading of opposing fans, doesn’t excuse some things we’ve seen recently, but also can hardly help (not aimed at Vieira btw). 

Agreed, Charlie Austin being a prime example.

Port Vale (Burslem) is a pretty dreadful place at the best of times & I must admit watching it last night I did worry for this bloke, as very unusually these days Vale had no black players in their squad last night at all (Malvind Benning is one of very few British Asians in the game) & I suspected that he would be targeted by their moronic Brexity fans.

People are criticising the likes of Vieira for his reaction but this stuff simply cannot be allowed to continue.

How the hell have you even brought Brexit into this?

Would you care to elaborate on exactly what a “moronic Brexity fan” is please?

As they do 😉

I won't desert them and will be there next season. Not good enough on the night and yes we had our chance in the penalty shoot out and more than we could have hoped for after Power left us in the quagmire. Re-group  and start again with plenty of positives going forward and hopefully the fanbase will only get bigger.

I was only jesting 😏. Got nothing against your lot personally and all the best for next season. I hope for your fans sake your club is in better hands. PS get a roof over the Stratton Bank 🤝

I see Sunderland have sold 46k tickets for today, impressive numbers, almost as many as the Gas sold in their division 5 play off final a few years back.

Almost as many as were locked out you mean?

They are already gushing over Sunderland on Sky. I think they just need to turn up to win 😭

Brexiteers triggered! 
 

Anyway today’s game… Wycombe have got this. Big strong side that are used to turning over clubs three times their size. They will rise to the occasion and Sunderland will freeze amidst all the expectation and pressure from a fanbase that demand higher level football. I’m backing Wycombe, York and Dorking in today’s playoff finals (come on you DORKS… I really hope that’s their nickname)

Never the case, but really hope they do.

Firstly it is ridiculous that a club of their size (& anyone who doesn’t think they’re huge, knows little about football) is in the third tier.

Secondly it would mean we don’t have to endure the prehistoric hoofball shite that Wycombe serve up as “football” next season.

Plus it will end the Akinfenwa media love in, a bloke who has made a career for the last few years by coming on as a sub in the last 5 minutes & pushing people over.

If he wasn’t the size of a bus as a limited lower division player he wouldn’t get any coverage at all.
