So it looks like Scunny have a chance of promotion.
Next season they may have a fixture at the citadel that is Elland Road. And I must say that it will be an honour and a privilege, for SUFC and both of their fans to be in such a hallowed place. 🤣🤣🤣

Fingers crossed Scunny can clinch promotion via the play offs Khun Adhoc then The Iron are guaranteed at least 6 points in the hat by taking the Mighty Whites ""Sleeping Giants should Comatose Dwarfs '' the the cleaners both home and away. :lol: :lol:
Still unsure who we will play in the play offs but at least weve managed to get there after spending all season in the top six despite a bad patch of a dozen or so games where we drew far too many well deserved IMO. The Iron are playing well and nice to see plans for the new 40,000 plus stadium have been given the green light in preperation for them finally getting into the EPL . [-o<

Good luck to Leeds on their quest to finish 14th SPOT , a real tense "ALL TO PLAY FOR " NOT scrap with QPR expected or it could well be 15th or 16th for them , worrying news Mick Mcarthey touted to be next Leeds manager then after him Chris Coleman followed .. both the latter are second favourites for the job as THE CRANKIES have also thrown their hat in the ring .

Last game of the season today for LUFC. :D Hopefully they will get some better players in for next season. [-o<
Local: No wins in 7, and 7th place Udon are at home to Rayong FC today. A game they really need to win if they want to stay in touch, especially as they have no game next week.
Meanwhile, top of the table Nongbua Pitchaya are away at Sisaket. Nongbua's away results need to improve if they are to retain top spot come the 2nd half of the season. Home: W 6, D 0, L 0. Away W 1, D 3, L 0. The only unbeaten team in the top 2 leagues. \:D/

Well that was a dramatic last day at the bottom of the Championship, but rather an easy day at the top as Cardiff take the second promotion spot as Fulham have an off day...

Thanks for the fixtures schedule Bob ... i was hoping Scunny were away in the first leg but never mind what ever happens they got to do the job .. fingers crossed in fact im crossing everything even my ears 12.30 kick off upon police orders due to the close proximity of Tropical Scunthorpe and the immigrant infested special zone known as Rotherham.

Hoping the Iron can win or keep it tight at home ready for the away leg when the Rotherham ground staff have removed the coal dust off the pitch .

I wonder if Sutton Utd were ever serious about promotion?

It would cost a fortune to replace their pitch with grass and then maintain it at an acceptable level :-k

Well,they reckoned it would cost 600k to re-lay the pitch,statts,which is a lot of dosh but they would surely have wanted a day out at Wembley if nothing else.
Congrats to Boreham Wood making it to the Final.They are the smallest club in the Conference and the 540 fans that made the trip to Sutton yesterday are not far off their average home gate !
Macc and Tranmere fans have a good relationship and they are also a Cheshire based team.Boreham Wood would be a fairy tale if they made it into the Football League,though.
I,honestly,dont mind who wins......The Final at Wembley is this Saturday,kick off 3pm (9pm Thai).

Championship Play Offs
Derby County 1 Fulham 0
Close, close tie. Fulham had the lions' share of possession but could only muster 2 shots on target.
Fulham had been the form side going into the last Championship match where they surprisingly lost to Birmingham after a 23 match unbeaten streak.
Second leg in London on Monday promises to be another tight battle...

Thanks for the reminder, DM. It had completely slipped my mind.
Considering your generous offer, I will be hoping for Scunny to be promoted. :D
In this event, you will be playing Leeds United, and has they proved in their recent tour of Burma, they can defeat nations.
So you don't have much chance. :lol:

Local football: No game for 8th place and fading fast Udon this week. Other results could see them drop to 10th.
Meanwhile a cracking game in store for Nongbua Pitchaya this evening. Following their unexpected first defeat of the season last week, a chance to bounce back when they take on PTT Rayong, the team who have taken top spot. So it's 2nd v 1st in Nongbualamphu. [-o<

Yes the MIGHTY WHITES v The MIGHTY BURMESE NATIONAL SIDE .. a real footballing world power house :lol: :lol: :lol:

Pleased you are rooting for a Scunny win and promotion .. not only for the 50 bt pint but i know you are a closet Iron fan ..alas you have more pressing issues tomorrow evening with the Ban Huay Butcher :yikes:

Big game in NBLP ..tomoz im betting on some dubious reffing decisions , dodgy pens n sendings off a plenty , hand bags at dawn bitch fights between players .. Thai refs are mostly crap , small man syndrome and have to be the star of the show makes their wieners bigger... its got a 2-2 draw written all over it this one.
