LUX It is a consolation that three of the play-off participants will have wasted their time :? But which one would you like to succeed?

I vote Brentford. Have been a very exciting team for a few years, continuing to impress despite selling their best players.

Vaguely local but no animosity with us at all.

Second choice would be Barnsley.

This. Close thread. :/

Hendo Lincoln
Oxford
Blackpool
Sunderland

In that order of preference.


As much as the heart says Pox the head says Blackpool just for the weekender.... (although, undoubtedly it would be a Tuesday in February and it would save the TVP from aneurisms.)

I don’t think that Bournemouth fans really want to go up. Reading is, and always has been their big day out.
Give it to Brentford, good team, good set up, and too good for us at the moment. Let them have their one season.

Yep - there seems to be a general acceptance nowadays of a uniform style of playing football and disregarding anything else

"Building from the back" is perfectly plausible but what keeps the game more interesting is variety

Our most successful sides have been geared more closely to how Barnsley play and not this current interpretation of "modern football". Jem, for example was a great player for us - but think he'd badly struggle in the higher leagues now with how the game has generally evolved

Find it a bit amusing that people who loved McDermott's side don't like Barnsley. His midfield was the epitome of high energy spoiling in midfield. Jem was basically a terrier crossed with the energiser bunny.


I didn’t love McDermott’s team but I loved what they achieved. It was all about the W


But they weren’t a niggly annoying team like Barnsley. Yes high press and loads of energy but not constantly fouling, pulling players back, tugging shirts, tripping. Horrible team.

In fact we’ve never had players like that. Maybe we’d do better if we had?

Wrt OP, couldn’t give a toss

Anyone but Bournmouth.
Their fans seem to think they are a Premier League club which is hilarious when you think of their pokey little non league ground.
Don't mind Swansea or Barnsley in there. Terrible football they play, should be a great for the PL.
Brentford not bothered, but it will be sad to lose a localish team if they go up.

Brentford have got a worse big game mentality than us :cry:

Remember that time they had a pen in the last minute - score and they went up - they only managed to concede a breakaway from their own pen and stayed down.

Can't see em getting past the Muffsters.

It says a lot for the quality in the championship this season that a team like Barnsley are contesting the play-offs. for me the winners of Bournemouth v Brentford are nailed on.

1-0 Swansea.

Bournemouth vs Swansea would be the least desired play-off final.

With a fully fit squad we would have beaten any of these over 2 legs........they look awful.
Final is a different matter.

Momentum can do wonders in this league, the gap between end of season and start of play-offs probably hasn't helped them.

Thank a certain striker for missing a tap in for that one. Momentum may well have been with us that night if we had got the 3 points.
