Derby take the early lead after a great play down the wing. 0-1 over Sunderland.
Sunderland tie it from the penalty spot. 1-1.
Forrest took the lead on Millwall. 1-0.
Here's to the Blades earning promotion to the PL.
We now sit in the relegation zone smh
HOLD ONTO YOUR BUTTS, BOYS AND GIRLS.
MILLWALL IS IN THE PLAYOFF SPOT AND FULHAM IS IN THE AUTO PROMOTION SPOT.
um... what can I expect? Any chance of an immediate bounceback?
Going back 10 seasons of relegations:
Birmingham (promoted next season)
Newcastle (promoted next season)
Middlesbrough (promoted after 7 seasons)
WBA (promoted next season)
Burnley (promoted after 4 seasons)
Hull City (promoted after 3 seasons)
West Ham (promoted next season)
Wolves (will be promoted after 6 seasons)
QPR (promoted next season)
Norwich (promoted next season)
Hull City (promoted next season)
Burnley (promoted next season)
Newcastle (promoted next season)
Of the 21 clubs relegated in the last decade, 4 are currently in the Prem and 4 are currently in League One.
2 more will for sure be promoted to the Prem in the next few weeks (pick two: Wolves, Cardiff, Fulham) and likely a 3rd (Derby, Villa, Fulham, Cardiff, Middlesbrough) will join unless Millwall wreaks havoc.
It’s possible 3 more will be relegated to League One (Sunderland, Birmingham, Bolton, Reading all in danger).
But Blackburn and Wigan are about to secure promotion back to the Championship. It’s possible Portsmouth makes it in too.
So it’s a crap shoot. The parachute payments help.
Yeah... I have to imagine we'll lose at least 10 senior squad players. Gonna hurt.
Newcastle’s first bounce back was a large chunk of the same group that got relegated. Last year Rafa made money and also brought in like 10 players, which is still a large chunk of this years team.
I have to think Stoke can hold onto a few players due to their wages, if the owner will take on the burden for a year hoping for a one year bounce back.
Shit's a roller coaster. We went down 5 years ago and 2 years ago damn near got relegated again. Now we're fighting to hang on to an automatic promotion spot.
Not really familiar with Stoke outside of guys like Shaqiri and Chuopo-Moting but maybe thats not the worst thing. When Fulham went down we had been fielding a pretty much unchanged core of guys for like half a decade, all of which close to or on the wrong side of 30. Pretty much all of them left and we had to rebuild with young guys. Lead to 2 years of being bottom of the table and nearly relegated but the last 2 years they have figured it out and we are fielding a strong team with a lot of young talent. It's really not that bad being in the championship. Used to be going down meant you were barely going to be able to find any games to watch, but now that pretty much every team in the football league participates in ifollow or their own streaming service, you can see pretty much every game. At least in the championship there is something to play for besides avoiding relegation. Fulham has gone 20 matches unbeaten, which obviously never could have happened if we were in the prem. I've had more fun following this season (and actually being able to watch almost every single game) than any year since our run to the uefa cup final.
I'm ready for the challenge, I guess.
If you can get BeIN they show games, as does/will ESPN+
Some clubs have a streaming service too. Sunderland, of course, do not offer this.
One thing Newcastle did start doing last year was putting up extended highlights the day after games. Huge fan of that feature.
That sucks, and is a stupid move by them. Most of the clubs in the championship, league 1 and 2 use ifollow. I know multiple teams didn't like giving away their content to ifollow so didn't sign up but I was under the impression most if not all of them released their own streaming services (Fulham, Villa, etc.). Didn't know there were teams that had no streaming. Kinda ridiculous that 22 teams in league 2 offer live streaming of all their matches, but yet a club like Sunderland doesn't.
To be fair it’s not like their owner has money to invest in those type of things. At least not money he’s willing to spend
Pretty sure signing up for ifollow is free for the clubs and a lot of them took them up on that offer to the benefit of the supporters. Some just decided to start their own streaming service and charge for it rather than giving away their content.
I don’t much care for the Wolves streaming offerings to the tune of $10/home match but it’s better than has ever been offered stateside. I pay for the big matches and occasionally they’re on espn or bein.
Big one at the bottom today, Sunderland hosts Burton.
I'd love to see it be Wolves, Fulham, and Millwall that end up promoted
Cardiff over Millwall please
I’d like to see Millwall just for the crazy fan shit that would surely happen. But would definitely be rooting for them to go right back down.
Burton ties it, which basically relegates us. Scored by who else but Darren Bent.
Burton score again in stoppage time to take the lead. Because Burton play Bolton, we are officially relegated.
*starts 2018/19 League One thread*
Spoke too soon! Scenes as we tie it. We now have a slim, slim hope of avoiding relegation.
False alarm! Fotmob had updated to 2-2 but it has since been changed to 1-2 with a McGeady yellow card :(
Full-time. Please refer to this post.
Looks like we’ve both been pushed out of this thread.
Sign me up for Millwall in the Premier League
Give me chaos. Let’s go Millwall.
Millwall would be awesome. Fans are a rough crowd, rowdy. Stadium easy to get to from central London. Different beast than the other London area teams.
Big day tomorrow
Would love a Fulham win and Cardiff to drop points
Charlton likely in the playoff for promotion to this elite league and my buddy is super excited.
Derby 1-0 Barnsley
Brum 1-0 Fulham
Early on. Would sink Barnsley and Bolton and assure Cardiff of promotion.
Get it together, Fulham.
Preston goal. Puts Burton in relegation and Barnsley currently surviving.
Fulham look a bit helpless right now. It’s all but over with a second Brum goal.
Edit: FOTMOB goofed. Gave a goal in the wrong game.
Fucking hell. Now it actually is 2-0 Brum.
Cardiff fans are going nuts for a 0-0 result at the moment.
shit show at Cardiff on the pitch with fans, smoke bombs, etc
awesome post match celebration
Big Cameron Jerome
Fucking Cardiff going up and yet here we are in our new home.
