Oh, sorry, I forgot the important Championship bit...
The Fulham draw means that Wolves are promoted.
It will be interesting to see how many loan players they register to play in the Premiership or if the loanees agent has done them a real favour by getting them a Premiership berth. :D :D

"Big game to win for the Iron. It moves them back into the play off zone (at the expense of yesterdays opponents) after a disappointing run"

And yet ANOTHER winning goal from Ivan Toney ........ perhaps the toon should have put him into a Championship side for his loan spell :-k

Macclesfield 1 Leyton Orient 1
A little bit of a disappointment for Macc but Orient have had the best away record in the league since Xmas and are in a false position.Macc looked tired with this being their 6th game in 19 days which have involved several long away trips.
They have won 4 and drawn 2 of those so cant be too critical.It could have been worse for Macc near the end as the home keeper was rounded and beaten but Maccs left back,Dave Fitzpatrick,made a great goalline clearance.
Tranmere have still to play both Dover and Halifax away so wont be easy for them to gain maximum points there.
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

Wolves 2-0 Birmingham
In their last 3 games in the Championship Brum have had a man sent off when playing Wolves. So it was little surprise when it happened again. To make it worse they were already a goal down by then. In fairness the visitors improved considerably after the sending off & were unlucky not to equalise. Don't take the chances & you suffer though & Wolves scored another right at the death.
Wolves now need 1 point to be champions, Birmingham remain 2 points above the drop, but have now played a game more than Barnsley just below them...

How many of today's pansies would survive in this game?

Thanks for sharing Adhoc. I was at the home leg as a young lad and dont remember any of those tackles. Must have been the norm then! Listened to the 2nd leg on my tranny (no jokes!!) and remember feeling a bit aggrieved when McQueen got sent off. Looking now, it might have been deserved!

All that and we got robbed in the final

My story is pretty much the same as yours, Pan.
Went to the home leg as a young ish lad. Listening to the away leg on the radio. Last 20 minutes I couldn't bare to listen, it was 1 - 1, and Leeds were getting pounded but holding on. Turned the radio back on for the last few minutes, which seemed like an hour.

Remember the game, think some of lovers of todays game should take a note that it is Barcelona(Cruyff and all) in this game dishing out the boot. Wish we could turn the clock back to those days before Platini changed all the rules to suit
his beautiful game, never been the same since. More passion and excitement then than now, just too much money at stake these days. At least then you could relate to players and have a beer with them.

Apparently Dover were very disappointing and look like missing out on the play offs now.Also in danger of missing out are Wrexham who are now 8th and have been replaced in the last play off spot by Ebbsfleet 1-0 winners at Eastleigh.
