    If you went up would Warburton/the board reverse course?
    Nope, the disagreement is about how the club should move forward over the next 5/10 years. As a whole, Brentford fans are pretty confident Benham has someone competent lined up, or that he'll select the right person for the job, but there's always that lingering doubt.

    Farmageddon is actually brilliant.

    Hah, they exist as Farsely AFC now, Phoenix club that rose immediately after Farsely Celtic collapsed. They're in the Northern Premier League Division One North, finished about midtable.

    Big game tonight for Middlesbrough, watching the game last week I would have to say Brentford deserved at least a draw but just couldn't finish their chances. But tonight with a full stadium Middlesbrough should win comfortably
    I expect Boro to do it at the Riverside. I worry for them if they get promoted, though, with their emphasis on loan players.

    Nah with that promotion pay packet they'd be able to buy outright the loan players that got them promoted

    Can't see Chelsea getting rid of Bamford that easily.

    I recognise that as a real weakness of the the club. We don't have a real right back at the club as the previous loanees have left and are weak upfront without Bamford.

    Great result last night, but I'm not expecting us to win the playoff final. Being a Boro fan encourages pessimism.

    Great scenes at the Riverside, but I felt for Warburton. He'll get another job easily, though. Best of luck to him.

    Bristol Rovers are the first side in 10 years to immediately bounce back to League 2. Credit where it's due for an impressive achievement.

    I know this is pretty much unrelated but when was the last time a League Two side only lasted one season before dropping back to the Conference? [Rovers surely too big to go down again but Barnet could]

    I'd be more intrigued if any two clubs from the same city achieved relegation in the same year, before promotion the next. Bristol City and Bristol Rovers have both done it this year! Despair to joy for the entire city.

    Genuinely didn't know that they'd been in League One for two seasons. How did that pass me by? Fair play to them for turning it on this season.

    A club like that should never have been non league in the first place.

    They ran Barnet very close for the top spot and I am sure they will do well in the fourth division next season.
