    I wanted Bradford to win for obvious reasons, and I think they were the better team in was a disappointing game. But its the end result that counts isnt it!

    Cheers Lazaat. Well appreciated. Couldn't get to the game but I was dying a death by following the game on the Newsatden web site.
    All the best for next season. Cheers Fl

    Thanks Laz, Gaz, Alto et all, now this may surprise you but the amount of congrats we received on social media was quite surprising from all around the World including France but I don.t think it was Frenchie.
    Best wishes came from Belgium, Italy, Turkey,Australia, the U.S. and even Brazil. So I thought maybe we should change our chant from "No one likes us" to "There is one like us" or is that stretching it a bit?

    Frenchie, there was 30,000 Lions fans at the match. We have had more previous but good turn out.

    Thats twice in a row now youve beat Bradford in the play offs, do you reckon they can make it to them again next season ?
    I was surprised when Phil Parkinson left them but they made a good choice in Stuart McCall, hes 'one of their own' lol.

    I thought James Meredith looked decent for them in the Final, and I see your lot have snapped him up quickly.

    And speaking of 'one of our own' like Bardford have got with Stuart McCall, you have got it in Neil Harris, and we've got it in Paul Heckinbottom. I think fans appreciate it much more these days when a manager is from that town and has played for and coached the club etc.

    I pressed the G when typing his surname Gaz!! I also wrote Bardford (did you notice), but thats because Im a quick typer and dont always check on everything after Ive written it.

    Acido we were lucky to get Meridith as Bolton were also after him,he said Neil Harris impressed him. After 5 years at Bantams he really wanted to play in Championship

    It sounds good doesnt it Claw, to be able to talk about your own team as being 'Champship' again after winning promotion.
    That was us this time last year, and Preston the year before that etc. Btw, arent Bolton facing up to massive debts still ?
    We recently signed the highly rated Steve Mallan from St Mirren and he more or less said that the lure of the English Champship was too good to turn down. (or words to that effect lol)

    Yes it is good to be back, it took the Blades 6 years I just hope we can do as well as you in your 1st year.

    It could take a long time for Blackburn to get back up I feel .Also Rotherham, I mean they only had 5 wins in the whole of last season.

    The Nobbers (Preston) have done it for 2 seasons now Claw so it shows the Lg One play off winners can surprise a few teams when they come up.
    Blackburn fans are saying they wont go anywhere with the chicken pluckers in charge (and no thats not meant to be rhyming slang for the Venky's lol).
    I think Rotherham have got the wrong man in Paul Warne and its just another in a long line of poor managers for them since the fat man Evans left a few seasons ago. And thats a shame really because I think we've always had a decent relationship with the Millers.
