That brings back memories, play offs early 90's at the Hawthorns we had Colin West sent off, probably the deciding factor in you beating us, Q 3 and a half sides of the ground bouncing up and down singing that.

Good night though despite the result.

Oh and Congrats by the way!! along with the Stokies

Blimey what a gentlemanly thread

Congrats all round.

QPR are going to be a threat next year as well, Charlton will be well miffed if Palace go up, If Coppel stays at Reading they will be strong, so on paper its got to be the strongest championship division ever. With the predictability of the Premier league, the Championship may well capture more attention than usual next season. If Palace stay down, Neil Warnock will be wanting to put his stamp on the title of best English born Manager in the league, so it will be totally full on next season.

We were in the Midlands in the early 70s and he was an WBA supporter. I asked if he was WBA, who was I, and he said "you can be Forest" and I've followed them ever since

I have brilliant memories of being at WBA when Forest got promoted to the prem in 1997. Pierre Van Hooidjonk blasted a ball into the crowd during the warm up. It was coming right for us then the bloke in front of me ducked and the ball hit my coffee cup soaking me through. I didnt care though because we had a party that day that was similar to saturdays excitement....U Reds!

On paper the Championship looks like it could be bloody difficult next season I will be happy with staying up (although the wurzels have proved you can give it a good shot)........ oh and beating Derby twice!

Calderwood has given himself a stay of execution but if we start badly the wolf will be at the door very quickly. As much as I would love Clough jnr as the Forest boss I just cannot see it actually happening.

Yes I'm sure it will be tough, hope you go well. Usually each season there is the added complication of a team surprising everyone, so on that basis expect real stiff competition next year..... QPR are the quiet favourites already for next season in London, so they can't be the surprise team ..... Blackpool or someone like that could go well....

The bottom 8 in the premiership could well be easier than the top 10 in the championship next year.

Swansea beat the mighty Seagulls on the weekend to claim the trophy - Leeds can rot for all i care...

Nigel Doughty was on the radio saying how its been an embarrasment that we've been down in league 1. He also said its embarrassing that we're now a championship club and he won't rest till we're back in the big time. Rumours are Calderwood has signed a contract extension and will be given around £10m to spend over the summer. So expect plenty of new faces around the city ground come august. A 'big' 25 goal hitman is suppossed to of the agenda and rumours around suggest someone of the likes of Leroy Lita, Robert Earnshaw or David Nugent. So watch out sheepshaggers

Happily do a swop with Commons....Dont forget you have to wheel and deal this summer. Jewell has limited funds due to your last regieme blowing the parachute payments before this season has finished.

No problems Good to see Stoke back in the top flight, don't know how you'll do next season or how your finances are, but whatever happens i'm sure you'll have a great season and enjoy it
