    Honestly I dont think they will get past Villa (of course, you never know), but was going to post similar.

    All their best players are loanees. A dangerous position to be in when getting promoted.

    There are limits on loans in the PL too, so it may even be they cant just loan them again.

    I think Lampard has done very well this season, Ive been impressed, but I still feel he needs to prove himself some and am not convinced he is ready for the PL.

    Madness really, saw on one of the gossip columns (BBC I think) that CHelsea want him to replace Sarri!

    Terrible behaviour.
    I can understand why one of the Sunderland players lashes out at the neanderthal.
    I'm glad it was captured by the cameras and trust Portsmouth will do the necessary.

    Perfect response from the Sunderland player;

    "I've seen my little cousin hit harder than that, so not a problem with that."

    Just made an absolute mug out of the guy. Took away his "bragging rights".

    More comebacks. Charlton scored early making it 3-1 on aggregate, then found themselves 3-4 down in extra time.

    If only Son had responded to Lerma’s provocation in a similarly calm manner.

    No pressure !!

    The Sky Bet Championship play-off final between Aston Villa and Derby on May 27 is worth approximately £170m for the winners

    I know they like to claim that but its a bit misleading. They have to spend money on transfers and wages to try and stay up and if they don't do it well they can get relegated with overpaid players and be worse off than they were.

    Also for a number of the players promotion could lose them their starting spots. All that money will be spent on new and supposedly better players. Fortunately for the club and fans most footballers overestimate their abilities and don't think this will happen to them.

    They faded quite badly in the 2nd half of the season -- I thought that might happen due to Bielsa's style, it's not sustainable over the course of a Championship season. On the first half of the season, they'd have got promotion automatically, 2nd half let them down.

    1st half - P23 W14 D6 L3 ppg 2.08
    2nd half - P23 W11 D2 L10 ppg 1.52

    Overall ppg for 1st place Norwich was 2.04

    1.52 ppg over the season was 8th.

    Looks a bit like our season. I think it was 45pts and 25pts, which is a bigger fall off than Leeds (2.37 to 1.32ppg).

    League One playoff at Wembley between Charlton and Sunderland right now.

    Sunderland have gone ahead - what a howler from the Charlton gk.

    Have a soft spot for Sunderland after watching that Netflix doco. Come on you black cats.

    Any team managed by Lee Bowyer can fudge right off, sorry Charlton.

    What a joke goal for such an important match for the clubs. If that ends up costing them promotion ...

    Both players are at fault. The goalkeeper for obvious reasons, but the defender shouldn't have put it on target with such weight. A slightly different angle in front of the keeper and it would have gone wide for the corner.

    Sunderland relegated two years in a row and this season, they lose the playoff final in the 94th minute.

    What a tough 3 years for those Sunderland supporters.

    They need to get rid of the ladder to end the bad luck.
