Stunning end to Championship season for Hull, Watford, Leeds, Leicester, Nottingham Forest, Bolton, Peterborough and Wolves

Bloody hell, talk about the implausible, the improbable and the downright illogical. Leeds with the second worst away record in the division, and on the back of two defeats, go to Udinese Calcio, who stuffed them 6-1 at Elland Road, and win 2-1, courtesy of a last minute winner; whilst Hull do their level best to help Zola's men win automatic promotion by failing to beat Cardiff, yet still go up.

Meanwhile, even more sensational events conspired to allow Leicester, truly hopeless since the end of January, to claim the final play off place by winning at, of all places, Nottingham Forest, at the expense of Bolton who couldn't capitalise on a final home game against Blackpool; what a missed opportunity for the Trotters!

Mind you, Bolton fans might look back on the season with a sense of relief given the way Wolves slipped straight through the Championship into the old Third Division and the way Blackburn did their level best to join them. Bolton themselves spent half the season in the wrong half of the table so, despite a good run in the final third of the season, did not deserve a return to the Prem.

But your heart has to go out to Peterborough. They started the season abysmally but have been one of the form teams of the division since Christmas - yet amazingly they go down on 54 points! Talk about Sod's Law!

And let's stick with Sod's Law shall we? Because this was a great day for Leeds, avenging that Elland Road thumping at the hands of Udinese Calcio, with young Dominic Poleon scoring into the bargain; but horror upon horrors, their victory enabled rivals Hull City to return to the Premiership. Life's a bitch when you support Leeds United isn't it?

  1. "Young Dominic Poleon" put Watford's keeper in the hospital with facial fractures - nice.

    1. That comment makes it hard to tell if you're being sarcastic or not, or whether you are a Leeds fan or not. Either way, did he fuck put the keeper in Hospital, he never fucking touched him, he gave their player a love tap who then proceeded to take out his own man ... If you actually think it is a good thing though, causing facial fractures to another player then you don't deserve to be a Leeds fan ... There is no place in any club for mindless, inbred thugs who care more about abuse and violence than a game of football!

    2. To be fair, I read it as a comment from a Udinese Calcio fan.

      Dom was no where near the keeper you absolute buffoon.

    6. The original comment was sarcastic, although I guess that goes well over the head of the average Leeds fan and hence the confusion. And if shoving Anya into the path of the onrushing keeper constitutes "no where near the keeper" (sic) then you might want to ask yourself why Poleon was booked for the incident, Einstein...

  11. Udinese B fans are moaning at Poleon, but seem to forget their player elbowing Morison and forcing him to go off

    1. Morrison got injured pushing ekstrand in the back In an attempt to send him through the advertising hoardings. Justice done, IMHO. Poleon should have been sent off for serious foul play.

  14. Hull City aren't big enough to be considered rivals of Leeds United I'm afraid. In their eyes maybe but the reality is we couldn't really give a toss.

  15. Unfortunately for you Hammersfan, if Eddie hitler is backed then Leeds could do very well next year....

  24. If your good enough it doesnt matter what your age is , Leeds won the game and that was without the 2 players sent off last week, As for The Pussy Cats who cares,, not us that's for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I had to laugh cockney boy.watford players were saying before the game,that they were more or less going to win,and hope cardiff would do them a favour as well.as much as i hate hull shity,im glad we beat the hornets.mind u,i think i would have scored against there keeper.i bet he plays for the dog and duck next year.

  26. Delete this post and have another go - poor effort

    Hull?, Leeds rivals, come on!

    And try listing a few more teams in the title to add to your capture list. Real Madrid might get you a few more hits

    And please say now... who's your prediction to win the play off's, before you pick a different one per post, then say you were right

  35. Hull are a tin pot club and are Leeds rivals my arse. They have had a golden era in their done nowt, won nowt history that has seen them reach the dizzy heights of two relegation dog fights in the top division after 100 years of trying. This one will be no different. It is like comparing Leyton Orient having a golden era and getting to the premier league and suddenly becoming massive rivals of Arsenal in their own minds. Stick to your rivalry with clubs you have been slumming around the bottom divisions with for most of your history, like Scunthorpe and Grimsby.
