I'm just imagining Woody giving the exact same presentation he gave here but because he couldn't work out how to delete the Boro Badge and replace it with a Bournemouth badge it's just this on every p

Bournemouth 2-0 now

The sack beckons for Tony Mowbray.

Hard to believe they looked like being in contention for the play-offs at one point. Something has gone drastically wrong there.

Maybe its time Mogga called it a day and went into punditry. Seems anyone who used to be a player or manager at any level can do that these days.

 

While we're at it, maybe this thread should be re-named, since we're obviously no longer in that race.

Cardiff been stuttering of late. Albeit they got Mick McCarthy for 2yrs yet as they fave him a new deal after that very strong start he made. 

And we got Warnock for 1yr.

Big Nige not doing anything grear at Bristol it seems.

Forest look good for promotion push for next season as seems Houghton work there is now starting to bear fruit.

Sheffield Wednesday 5-0, wtf, Reach on the double.

They're still 6 points from safety but that's a massive result and a big boost to their goal difference.

Hoping they go down still.

Whey, Reading 1-0 at the very verge of half time.

Obviously I'd sooner every single side above us lost today, but I've made my feelings clear on the play-off contenders.

I kow what you mean, but regarding finances it would probably be better if all three relegated sides went up, as that would reduce the number of teams with parachute money.

Bournemouth are in a lot of debt as is, that gets even worse if they stay down, I don't think they'll blow anyone out of the water with transfers.

They'll lose a lot of their better players too.

I also don't think lightning will strike twice for Barnsley, it's now or never.

Not sure if it's been mentioned, but financially speaking, if we don't get promoted, then the best outcome for us is that the 3 relegated teams from last season are promoted back to the EPL. 

 

IIRC, the outstanding parachute payments from clubs promoted back to the EPL are distributed to the championship teams. Which could be as much as 100m if all 3 go up.

I didn't know that, is it definitely just the championship and not the whole EFL? 

Norwich and Watford are almost certs. Hard to route for Bournemouth though.

Wow. If that's the case then I'm all for Bournemouth following Norwich and Watford up. That'll be almost 5 million to each of the 21 other clubs in the championship which will go a very long way for a lot of clubs after this year.

It's not the case, as far as I can see.

If a club gets promoted, they just stop getting the parachute payments, they don't get redistributed.

But clubs that aren't eligible for parachute payments do consistently get Solidarity Payments every season to the amount of nearly £5m, but that's unrelated to whether relegated clubs get repromoted.

    • This is the side we deservedly beat Croatia with in November 2018, the last time we played them:     I'd say today's line-up is much better than that, even with the oddity of Trippier at left-back. The best Croatian players are all 3 years older and the wrong side of 30 since then too.
    • To be fair I think a lot of managers would be. It does seem typical of Southgate's "safety first" approach. Also, it is the first and toughest match of the group. I guess he just wants to make sure we don't concede a bunch of goals because our attacking players keep getting caught out. On the plus side, we do have a lot of firepower on the bench to call on. I really hope they see some action.  
    • I guess we'll see how it plays out and I could be wrong but Trippier at left back feels like a bloody idiot move. Why, we've got good players who can play in that position and keep the balance of the back line. We're not talking about Paulo Maldini or Javier Zanetti here, this is a lad who plays right back for his club and makes his name doing that. Southgate will live or die in this tournament based on his decisions and his insistence that good footballers will adapt to play for England in any number of positions regardless of where they play for club is looking like it could be top of that list. England has history for putting players onto the pitch because they're good and not for the betterment of the team and it ain't good.
    • Trippier at LB would be a shocking call to be fair, sure he won La Liga and kept Croatia's RB out of the Atleti team in the process but we have a LB who has just won the Champions League!!! Sterling over Rashford or Grealish as well is a big call he's been crap for the past year, Mings and Phillips I have no real issue with they've got pace and have had solid seasons.
