Who would we better not play next season? Think I would prefer Derby to stay down.

Me too

Hope Fulham go up to be honest, by far the 2nd best footballing side in the championship after Wolves

With you on that one Fred, I think Fulham's owner is very rich and can only see them getting stronger...Fulham to go up for me

Villa for me guys I reckon Steve Bruce will have that winning mentality and sheer determination. Oh and he has the right mix of experienced players with some real quality individuals. They have laid out heavily and they won't be easily beaten.

You have a point Leon, Boro' will only get stronger under Pulis. One thing I don't want is Fulham AND Boro' in the Championship next season. Mind you, we should be in a position not to be afraid of anyone.....

I hope Fulham or Boro go up too, don’t think Villa and Derby can afford to stay down and have the squads they have next season, any players a potentially ambitious Leeds could realistically afford?

Agree dezzy - I think Fulham, by some distance are the best footballing team (with a minted owner who wants to buy, along with his NFL pals, Wembley).............and of other three 'Boro are the team, under Pullis, who would be the strongest next season.

Fulham lose two consecutive games

Can't afford not to win their 3rd game, still in the mix at 1-0 down

It's only 1-0, could be worse. Hopefully Fulham will trounce them at Craven Cottage...

Hoping the Super Imps (2nd team from when I lived there in 70/80's) take a good lead to Exeter for the return

I did see them, disappointingly get battered by Bournemouth 5-2 in 2003, when the play-off finals were being held down here at the Millennium (or the Principality Stadium (gets a few more £££ of sponsorship money in for the WRU) as it's now called)

.....................albeit that wasn't as disappointing as the 2006 Championship play-off final, which I assume you all went to as well. We were really, really poor that day :cry:

Villa beat Boro & have a one goal start in the return leg at Villa Park

The other three play-offs all end up in draws
