League One Playoffs

Permalink  
 
Any thoughts about who we want to win them - assuming they happen. Personally, I dont want Fleetwood to do it. Nasty man in charge. I've got nothing against Portsmouth but on the basis that they might have the clout to compete in the league above and we need three to finish above next season, they are the one I really dont want to go up. I dont warm to Robinson at Oxford. He has never had a good word to say about us over the years, and comes over as a bit smug. I remember when Warnock led us to a 4-0 win at MK and Robinson claimed they were the better side, and he did it again when we hammered Oxford at their place and totally bossed it. That leaves Wycombe. I'd quite like to see Wycombe win it. They had a great season and punched above their weight. Which isnt easy when you've got Akinfenwa on your side. He really is a mountain of a man, and a real handful. Good luck to Wycombe.

Joey Barton for me done a great job might not be Mr perfect I bet Fleetwood fans are not too concerned. I really liked him as a player saw him play for Burnley against us love to have a player as good as him in my team.

I suspect Peterborough will win it....... Oh wait!

I fancy Portsmouth. Like the club but detest the manager. However, the whole thing is going to be a lottery and will depend significantly on the fitness coaches' abilities to get the squads up to speed.

I think it's way too close to pick a winner, genuinely haven't a clue and any form has gone out of the window now. I'd probably like to see Wycombe promoted for the same reasons as smiler, however they have a new owner who apparently has a bit of money to spend which could come in handy in the championship. I'm not a fan of Robinson or our good friend Kenneth at Portsmouth so wouldn't like to see either of them go up. I think out of the four teams it'd probably be in our best interests if Fleetwood went up as I think they'll probably have the most trouble attracting players in the championship.

Complete lottery more than in a normal situation.

No form and no real match fitness. But if I had to pick a winner I think Portsmouth just edge through.

Back to the topic of play offs.

The league two games have been really good. Better than the majority of the Premier League games so far.

 That's not really surprising, very few premiership teams have anything to play for, as it's only a matter of time before Liverpool win the championship by virtue of points ac***ulated. Probably 3 teams at the top hoping to get into Europe and the perennial strugglers at the bottom trying to stay up. The rest are only playing to fulfil their contract with Sky/BT and avoid punitive financial penalties.

The play off teams, on the other hand, have all to play for.

I think Unifier is right. Burnley last night had two keepers and some kids on the bench. They have players about to be out of contract or looking for moves who weren't going to risk injury. They aren't in any danger. It was a dead game for them and it showed. That was always one of the follies of playing the League One season out - clubs with no money and nothing to play for would have ended up fielding the kit man, tea bar lady and a few kids just to fulfil the fixtures. That was just one of the reasons that Peterborough's proposal to finish the games for the sake of the 'integrity' of the competition was badly flawed.
