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?
