Steve Evans? Still a horrid team with or without him. Stevenage aren't much better either but they could actually be a division above us next year :(

True, I'm just trying to find some good in the situation for you. :(

Are Stevenage still anti football, now Westley has gone to Preston?

I know, obviously know quite a few fans of theirs too so itll just be painful to have to play them

The next two games decide whether we play at Old Trafford (75,000 avg) or The Lamex Arena (3,500 avg) next year :D

Sheff Utd and Huddersfield aren't too clever when it comes to playoffs, wouldn't surprise me if Stevenage do come up.. but I hear MK Franchise have a strong team in League One.

Let's hope they do :thup::D

I just can't see Stevenage in the Championship. Sheff United I reckon will be feeling sorry for themselves that they've missed out on automatic promotion to their rivals, so can't see them winning. MK Dons maybe, but I just think Huddersfield have more quality, and can see them doing it.

Ideally Stevenage and Franchise FC to go up so we don't have to play them next season whilst Huddersfield and Sheffield United go up so it's a weaker league next year :D

That said Mk Dons would be a local(ish) game. Whilst Huddersfield will sell Rhodes if they don't go up and Sheff United wont have Ched Evans or be competing with their local rivals to get as many pts as possible. So Stevenage to go up please :thup:

Huddersfield are play-off chokers though. Besides I don't think they're THAT good just have a ridiculous striker.

Has MLG gone yet? Safe to enter?

I don't think United will be joining us, they've just not looked right without Ched Evans. Over the season they've clearly been better than the likes of udders and Franchise, but if I had to bet one one to go up, I'd guess MK.

He'll come back if you mention Michail Antonio, so make sure you don't.

Oops.

Lovely. As you've potentially foiled that plan, can we have Player X plz? You won't be needing him or anything.

Sure, I'll tell Nicky Hammond to sanction a loan/transfer immediately.

To be honest, apart from popping up with the odd goal, he hasn't done much for us, just doesn't seem to be able to keep a ball under control. Weird, because he's excelled on loan to League 1 clubs three times. Hopefully regular football in the Championship will improve him and we can fleece you for a good fee.

I'm sure Westley would be willing to leave Preston for the chance to manage in the Championship, get onto your club to give him a call.

I follow Torquay and I have to say they bossed us in the playoff final last year. They are the kind of team that you'd hate to play in any knockout tournament as they are very decent.

Agree with this, "anti-football" such a nonsense. Stevenage fans loved Westley when he was there, and why wouldnt they?!

I'm happy to take that risk. He's been a much more consistent Jermaine Johnson. And he's only 22.

Plus I love him.

So, the opening odds are out to win the league next year, obviously doesn't currently include those in the playoffs, or those not yet relegated.

Leicester 8/1

Leeds 10/1

Wolves 10/1

Brighton 12/1

Charlton 16/1

Sheff Wed 16/1

M'Boro 18/1

Burnley 20/1

Ipswich 25/1

Hull 25/1

Forest 25/1

Derby 33/1

Watford 40/1

Bristol City 66/1

Palace 66/1

Milwall 66/1

P'boro 100/1

Barnsley 200/1

Can only assume the recent success of Southampton has made the bookies put Charlton/Sheff Wed shorter odds than teams like us and Boro.

Plus the fact that Billy Davies is going to be your manager next year will only lengthen the price of you going up :p

Most of the talk is now about Brown coming back -.-

All this, before Nick's future's even been decided!

Tbf this isn't a traditional Cardiff bottle job. Nobody was really expecting them to go up.

How is losing to a team who are far far better, more experienced and far more strength in depth bottling?

We'll be back stronger next year, and Forest will just be worse :p

Weve been playing a bit like that all season bar Reading home perhaps, not sure why all the other clubs fans are suprised :D!

Now some ridiculous rumours on the messageboards about the Malaysians, debt and that we;ll be re-branded next season and will be playing in red :D

Well if you've been playing like that for the majority of the season then I've no idea how you made the top 6 :D I know I can't speak after Friday but at least we've been playing some good stuff this season..

Yeah Cardiff looked totally inept going forward. Can't believe you've been playing like that all season?

I'm not too sure either we just went on good unbeaten streaks, Whittingham had played his 48th consecutive game today(full 90 in every one), from centre mid that's quite a demanding task, plus the CC Cup games!

Actually genuinely getting scared of these rumours, some reliable forum members have heard it, some big news possible soon :L

Why were West Hams fans doing the conga winning a Playoff Semi Final? Possibly the oddest thing I've seen in a while. They should be embarrassed being in the Playoffs.

Have you seen that in the League 1 odds for next season that Portsmouth aren't included? Bookies obviously aren't sure if you'll be around next season.

They are pretty stupid then, we'll be around foreshure. According the Sun (Yes I know), the City Council are considering offering a 7 figure loan to the club. I personally think they should offer that to the Trust to boost their bid. Not really fussed whether it's true or not.

The club will be around, either owned by Chanrai or him taking a huge hit on his Floating Charge and the Trust taking over.

Sorry to upset a nerve :D Just found it strange when I was posting the odds in the League 1 thread earlier that you guys hadn't been included.

Donny somehow had odds of 10/1 of winning the title :confused:
