Last day in the championship and it looks like its going down to the final kick of the game. We know what that is like to hope we win and others do not. As it stands Bolton need a goal and hope either Burton or Barnsley do not score. Forty five minutes to go.

Wow...in the last few minutes Bolton had taken the lead only for Forest to equslize 3 minutes later after Burton had got level at Preston. Some lad called Akpan scored for Burton. Barnsley look doomed 4-0 at Derby but a Preston goal could save them. Ten minutes left its Burton who are saved but anything could happen.

Five minutes to go and Bolton have blown it now losing 1-2 to Forest. Burton hanging on at Preston.

Good for them. The more local teams to play next season the better, makes it much more entertaining.

I guess... Although a league of 23 teams within half an hour's public transport of Sheffield would be better.

Agreed.

I am sure there will be some anxious moments in the Championship next season, & probably lots of grief provided by Bolton, Preston, & Wigan, but it oughta be fun and a great ride, too.
