    As much as I want to see Bournemouth up, I hope we win tonight to make final day more of a spectacle.

    Really fancy a Norwich-Ipswich play-off final, but it doesn't seem to be likely given the fact they will both probably finish 4th and 5th respectively, thus drawing each other for the semi's.

    As an Ipswich fan I am kind of indifferent to who was going to get automatic promotion this week but when that final whistle went and Bournemouth who 6 years ago were on the verge of the Vanarama Conference went in to the Premier league I was smiling. The right teams are going up.

    Also on August 8th, AFC Bournemouth will be top of the premier league because of the A in their name haha crazy stuff in such a short time.

    There's also 2 Championship games on at 12:15 on Saturday. I was expecting it to be Charlton vs Bournemouth if Bournemouth didn't win tonight. Now I expect it to be Wolves vs Millwall & Wigan vs Brentford. As it's the only two games to feature teams with something to play for. The rest play midtable teams.

    Congrats to Bournemouth. They may have been given 3 dodgy decisions against us this season, but they certainly deserve to be going up!Probably waiting for the Rotherham match on Tues, if they win it'll be Derby and Brentford games, they lose and it'll be ours and Brentfords game.

    They've been getting dodgy decisions all season! I saw a graph recently about the number of penalties and red cards that went for them and they were head and shoulders above any other team in the league.

    Can't wait to hear about "little old Bournemouth" every week on MOTD now :rolleyes:

    I swear I'm not bitter.

    Knives are already out on social media for Bournemouth due to their wealthy backing. Ridiculous envy.

    They're hardly QPR/Leicester. I think out of the top 6 they have the 4th best squad, behind Norwich, 'Boro & Derby (and arguably Watford, then there's teams like Fulham, Cardiff & Forest that pound for pound you could say are stronger than Bournemouth too)

    Pugh £80k, Arter £4k, Francis £30k, Daniels £200k, Ritchie £500k.

    Leeds linked with Floyd-Hasselbaink.

    Don't do it Jimmy, it's a cursed job. You're building something brilliant at Burton, moving to Leeds under the current circumstances would be a step backwards.

    Yes they clearly would have gone up twice without his investment. I know it's bitter, but sodding Bournemouth in the PL while my lot might be in League 2? What a joke.

    Only after selling Grabban for more than that.

    The knives being out for them this early is ludicrous.

    A lot of it is from footballing Scrooges like myself who think it's a joke that clubs like Bournemouth and Burnley get to be in the PL.

    Why is it a joke? This is the best team in Bournemouth history, they've scored the highest amount of Championship goals in a season ever bar one, and they've been frighteningly consistent and energetic under Howe's guidance.

    It's not a joke because it's undeserved, it's a joke because it's...Bournemouth for crying out loud. As I said I'd probably be less bitter if my own team didn't have the prospect of League 2 football next season.
