    I have no problem with that. Again I hope both our teams are promoted.

    Me too. And I hope Middlesborough and Sunderland stay up. Then we'll have three northeast clubs and Fulham all in the top flight.

    Big day for Fulham. Honestly, I'm torn between liking Fulham and wanting them to go back up, and wanting Newcastle to buy Cairney. I'll watch and just hope for a good game.

    Unfortunately I have to work so will miss the game since it is on at 1:45 CST. Will be following online though. Watched the first leg Saturday. Fulham had the game. Numerous chances to score and win but could not do it. Reading on the other hand scored on their only shot on goal. Leading up to that shot were some dubious ref noncalls but that happens in every game. One good thing is McShane for Reading is out this game and the next due to a red card for giving a boot to the knee on a Fulham player.

    I actually get this game on BeIn's Spanish channel. I'll definitely be watching.

    Well that was a big dissapointment. Onto Next Year but I feel they will lose Cairney, Segusson and a few others for some big money. Hopefully take the money and restock the squad for a run to the League title next year.

    Good luck to New Castle in the EPL next year.

    Yeah, I was sorry to see it. I couldn't root against Fulham, so basically just rooted for goals whenever either team went down the pitch. Fulham definitely had their chances, but couldn't put it in the net.

    Selling Cairney should fund quite a lot for Fulham. I think you should keep hold of the other youngster, though, if you can.

    Rumor is Liverpool, Chelsea and Man U are all interested in Segusson. I want him to stay and develope some more since he is only 16 but if they are offered 15 million pounds for him that is hard to pass up.

    Wow, between him and Cairney, you could get 30 million plus!

    So it's to be Reading and Huddersfield Town to battle for promotion. I'm rooting for Reading, because they have two US players, and Newcastle are said to be interested in Mooy.

    Now that I an over the dissappointment of the playoff lose I think the Reading Coach deserves a lot of credit for the way he prepared their game plan against Fulham. Fulham was the better offensive team and he seemed to play two defensive games with idea of stealing a game winner. Especially after McShane was sent off in the first game with the score 1-1 with about 25 minutes left. He played one forwarded and everybody else in the box. Fulham just could not break through. Statistically Fulham controlled both games but if you cannot score it means nothing.

    Fulham made probably their best hire as a coach this season. It would not surprise me if he is snatched up by some other club in the EPL.
