Terrible dive from that Fulham lad in the box before the water break, think they had two or three chances to get a shot away.

Is it a safe lock that Leeds will make it up and if so (and fans can attend games again) how hard would it be to get an away ticket at Elland Road
They're well placed to go up but I'd give it a few more games before saying they're a lock to be promoted. If memory serves me right, they were well placed to go up automatically last season. However, they finished outside the top two, then Derby eliminated them in the playoffs.

Think the empty stands at Elland Road will help them as we saw what a pressure cooker it was for the Derby play off game last season and Leeds completely imploded.

Leeds got Stoke, Barnsley, Luton and Charlton left to play at home. Win those four and they're up.

I actually think West Brom will be the ones bottling top 2. Haven't scored in the two games since restart and didn't score in the two games before the break either. They also have a tough run in and can see Brentford winning most of their games left.

Elland Road actually looks pretty good with the cutouts in the crowd. Wonder would a player still get booked if he went and celebrated with them.

Great point regarding the lack of fans being a benefit.

I also see West Brom making a mess of automatic promotion.

Would be great to see Brentford up, it would be similar to when Bournemouth came up i.e. a team that is really a League one sort of side in the PL.

Derby played some lovely football in the first half at Deepdale. I believe they were 17th when Rooney arrived at the club. They're now 7th, one point off 6th.

Pep Clotet left the club. He was due to leave at the end of the season
Birmingham are 17th, 4 points above the relegation zone

How weird the possibility Coventry will be playing in Birmingham's ground in the Championship and Birmingham will be playing in their own ground down in League one.

I wonder if Robbie Fowler will throw his hat in the ring for the job. He left my local club (Brisbane Roar) a few weeks back due to Covid.

Leeds smashing stoke 4-0 here.


Looks like they’ll finally be back in the big time after all.

How rotten must Stoke be. Got a reasonably competent manager in and when you look at their squad plenty have got promotions from this league and been key players in the team (Vokes, Ince etc).

Still a big chance they go into league 1.
