Default Reckoning Weekend

Who else's team is involved in promotion/relegation/championship battles this weekend?

As a Leeds fan, I can't believe we are having to fight promotion out on the last day of the season. At the turn of the year we were 8 points clear at the top, having only lost once.

The nerves are hitting me hard today, wish I was going tomorrow, will have to make do with watching live text the joys of being an Expat football fan.

Come on Leeds

Sorry Nicky - life in Div 1 can't be too bad!!??

I hear what you say about being an expat football fan - that's why I'm so excited about the prospect of the World Cup - in 2006 we were in Oz - there was no hype, excitement or atmosphere in Perth - it's all Aussie rukles this, Aussie rules that! Socceroos, my arse!

Yay, we did it. Championship here we come

I know what you mean about the World Cup atmosphere, no-one has any idea about it here in LA, totally clueless. On the plus side, no-one will know why I am throwing so many sick days

I will really miss the atmosphere in England this year, hope you enjoy it.

After just watching Chelsea's performance I wouldn't bother to turn up if I was a Pompey fan

Fantastic for anyone associated with the club on Saturday, after 6 years of utter shite. I attempted to deal with the nerves by cutting myself off from the outside world and taking my 8 year old to baseball. I thought they'd blown it after Charlton, & didn't think we'd of progressed through the playoff's.

I manage to get my footie fix by speaking to a bloke from Gildersome who plays and ref's in the league I play in. He's a proper supporter. One of only a thousand who signed up for the bond holder scheme, which the club honoured even after it went tits up. Spoke to him last night about the Damned Utd which I only saw last week. You seen it yet?

So what now? A couple of years consolidation would do me. Apparently Beckford's signed a pre-contract with Everton. Will Ken Bates get the cheque book out? I'll settle for Grabel on the left, Snoddy on the right, with Xavi and Messi in the middle. Should see us alright.....
