To me. To you. To the Championship

26 May

So in the end it was Rotherham United, rather than Leyton Orient, who joined Brentford and Wolves in being promoted to the Championship this season.

Few who watched the League One play off final on Sunday could deny it was exciting. Some of the best goals ever to grace the stadium (in her old or new forms), more swings than a child’s play park and that most tense of conclusions – the, so-called, ‘lottery’ of the penalty shootout.

But then few who watched it could, honestly, have picked a winner. Paul, Barry and masked impersonators were seen on the BBC  chuckling all the way to the Championship

 Thanks for reading over the course of the campaign. For now I need to make space on this page for any follow up.  The ‘close season’ / World Cup columns continue in full, further on in this site.

    Whatever anyone says about Evans, he is an excellent man-manager. You can see he treats each player as if he is his own son and as a result he gets the best out of them and has put together a superb team. I did pick Rotherham as my dark horse for the play offs at the beginning of the season, but I never thought they would be that good.

    My abiding memory of this game would be Evans’s celebration after Revell’s stunning strike. The run down the touchline, the triumphant punch, the hoick of the slacks.

    Also that has to be the most disturbing picture ive seen in years. The Chuckle Brothers with tits! Even more disturbing then Windowlicker by Aphex Twin.
