Full Time...

Nottingham Forest 3-2 Yeovil Town.....Cheltenham 2-1 Doncaster

After they beat us in the playoffs last year how Ironic that we gain promotion by beating them and thank you Cheltenham.

All I can say is...

BRING ON THE DERBY

^^ Congratulations Mark. Looking forward to retaining the BC Trophy next season

Personally, I was hoping you'd be in the playoffs. Sadly I don't see anyone else stopping from Leeds coming back up

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

According to calciomercato the deal for Flamini moving to Milan is done with him signing a 5 year contract worth a massive €5.6 million per year. Will Gattuso be heading out for England? We'll see.

You would think that this would signal the end for Gattuso but he won't come to PL because the pace would be too much for him. I think a spanish or another Italian team will take him.

AC Milan need to do several more buys they need a serious overhauling.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think Gattuso fits with the English style very well. He has relatively speaking very little technique but can work his butt off i.e. he is like the average premier league player. He is turning 30 this year and probably has only two years of top club DM football left in him. I don't think any of the top 4 club in the Premiership actually needs him (United has Hargreaves, Chelsea has Mikel, Pool has Mascherano, and Arsenal has Diaby) but he could certainly starts for the mid-table English teams. However if he does does leave Italy I could only see him heading back to the Rangers to finish off his career.


Flamini has arrived at Milan for the medical. After the medical he'll put his ink on the deal.

Belongs in the in TV and Media forum as much as it does the (UEFA) Football Thread, but this awesome Guy Ritchie Nike Advert is well worth a look.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

United to take the title, likely. So ... what do you think? Who goes down with Derby?

Fulham 33pts, -23 GD
Reading 33 pts, - 29 GD
Birmingham City 32 pts, -19 GD
Derby [Relegated]

Fulham v. Portsmouth
Birmingham v. Blackburn
Derby v. Reading


I would like to see Fulham stay up - and they're playing relatively strong football - but I have a feeling, FA Cup final or not, Portsmouth want to get a bit of momentum going in and put out a reasonably strong side. I see Birmingham losing to Blackburn, and I can't see Reading in a must win, losing to a Derby side with one eye on Summer break to wash away the taste of this season.

So: Derby, Fulham and B City in the Coca Cola Championship.

I think Hodgson has done a great job but I can't see them beating Pompey and Reading will defeat Derby so IMO...

Birmingham and Fulham will join Derby next season in the CHAMPIONSHIP.

Actually I'll lay odds now that we'll beat Reading on Sunday. We can no longer beat Sunderland's score, the only record left for us not to break is the first team to win only one league game in a season since Loughborough collage some 100 years ago All the pressure is on Reading, and we're at home. I'm banking on The Rams giving their fans a win to take some comfort into the summer.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

doubt it, we didn't offer him a contract early till we knew what league were playing but now we are ready to make him the highest paid player at FOREST.

Derby may have new owners but FOREST still are one of richest clubs outside the PL thanks to Nigel Doughty and a solid fanbase.

You should count yourselves lucky - we beat them 13-0 that season.
