    Terrible game with two teams far too scared to go for it. Wonder if Blatter was watching, if penos didnt exist that game would still be going on as I type.

    Yet again we didn't turn up in a play off final. Gutted. 3rd place, 90 points, most goals scored in the league and nothing to show for it. Joke.
    It seems such a cliché to say it, but imagine what would have been if you'd had Ched available.

    Yes because there was so much riding on it. Too much pressure on both teams but especially us, being the team who finished 3rd and 9 points ahead of them. Tis a joke.

    Delighted for Huddersfield, Christ knows it's been a long time coming for promotion. Plus worth mentioning that's three teams Simon Grayson's moved up - Blackpool, Leeds and Huddersfield.

    Was working so I missed the penalties, gonna watch them later. Thank God I wasn't watching live, or my pants may not have stayed quite so white.

    Exactly my point, finals have so much riding on them that there is always the likelihood that the two teams are going to go out not to lose rather than to win. In which case pens are needed. Still, no shot on target until the 80th odd minute is embaressing for any game of footy.

    I was rooting for the blades. Watching in a pub in Birimingham with a few Sheffield and Barnsley fans which made it a little more exciting. At no point were the blades fans confident of anything, you and playoff really dont go together unfortunately.

    Yep. At no point yesterday I thought we were going to do it. Sadly we never do in the play offs. Automatic places or nothing.

    Looks on the face of things that United chucked automatic promotion away. But they would have easily gone up anyway had Wednesday not gone on a 14 match unbeaten run at the end of the season. On that basis I'm inclined to say Wednesday won i rather than United lost it.

    The finest of margins in the end though; and United would have gone up was it not for Antonio's 95th minute winner against Carlisle United with three games left, right in front of the Kop where I was sat! A moment never to be forgotten. It felt like a massive turning point then and so it proved to be.

    Not likely to get a response since he's been given a permanent ban, but I'd guess at Birmingham City from the mention of Zulus, and the dislike of Villa.

    Give it a couple of years and I reckon the Cardiff fans will warm to it.

    When you're losing that much money a month you need a drastic change. :dontknow:

    I'd take the money for us to survive, not for premiership football. People will always be annoyed because the owners said they wouldn't do it, and furthermore we won't become a successful club just because of the colour, so why do it?
    Essentially we've made our bed with the debt, just makes a mockery out of tradition

    Could be worse, you could be a Birmingham fan.

    Still no sign of our accounts, Hughton fleeing the sinking ship (who could blame him), criminal owner and looks to be only getting worse.

    Oxford fan here, missed out on the playoffs due to a 7 game (or so) implosion at the end of the season. May be selling our top scorer to a league 2 rival and potentially losing one of our better young midfield talents too. Plus we may yet see rugby at the Kasstad! Oh dear times are changing, hoping the manager signs some decent replacements if needed!
