I am sure that it must be true considering the source, but according to the BBC football gossip, a potential Sunderland buyer is promising to invest £50 million and bring in four Premiership players.....either someone is using mushrooms or they think that Mackems will believe anything they are told 

Wouldn't be Mike Ashley would it? Buy cheap, get them into the Premiership, rinse and repeat.

According to a couple of lads I used to work with, they reckon they need at least ten new signings themselves and that they are only signing overrated players at inflated prices..(sounds familiar) but every time a promising lad comes through, he's sold within a couple of years

Brentford all over Swansea. Already 2-0 up and leading in the tie.

Hope they go up. They have one of the smallest budgets (in terms of income) in the league.

Just shows how an effective long term strategy, if implemented successfully, can really help you go toe-to-toe with clubs with much larger budgets.

Think it's going to be a Brentford v Fulham final.  Could go either way between them.

Hopefully Brentford win.

They've been the best team in the Championship this season, barring the odd game.

Leeds were the best team in the Championship this this season.

Points wise, yes.

Quality of football wise, absolutely not.

When Brentford play well, they're phenomenal.

According to the Telegraph, Bournemouth still owe £81 MILLION in transfer fees. 

Good luck in the Championship Bournemouth.

I imagine there will be a few outgoings in the next few weeks ..

Pleased for Brentford. Hope they do it in the final. Moving into a brand new stadium next season, so similar to us winning promotion and then moving into the Riverside.

They have a lot of work to do but have some good assets to sell in King and Ake as examples.

Chelsea have a buy back on Ake, not sure if it's first refusal or a fixed price, otherwise they'd make most of the £81m back on Ake alone.
Palace will no doubt be after Wilson as well

    • The thing that gets me is if Swansea had sportsmanship they would of let us walk the ball in for a draw like Bielsa did a few years ago but they didn't as they are cheaters hope they aren't promoted horrible club with cocky fans who are attacking Bolasie asking for VAR 
    • Straight down the middle. He would have saved it if he'd remained his normal  statuesque self. He must go at the end of the season. Dud!
    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
