Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Checking in on the Championship Playoffs

Who will join Leicester and Burnley in the Premiership next season. Four teams will compete over the next week for that honor. Yesterday, Derby put a crimp in Brighton's style with a 1-2 win over the Seagulls. They'll play again on Saturday. Today, it's the turn of Wigan and QPR. Tune in from 2:45pm EST to see what happens.

An hour in and it's still 0-0 in this one.

Less than fifteen minutes now - still 0-0. If these matches end goalless, I reckon that both sides should be disqualified by the FA. Does anyone really want to see either of these dull sides back in the Premiership again?

0-0. Dismal.

Perhaps the second leg will be better. Someone needs to win. Not happy that Brighton lost due to a pen and an OG by Krucz

What do you think of my idea of immediately disqualifying sides who can't score a goal in the playoffs?

Do they have both legs to score or is this after the first leg?
