BH -- I know what you mean. My only real interest in the first division is to see whether Liverpool can finally win it after spending hundreds of millions of quid and getting a proven manager.

When Wilkinson got us out of the first division in 1990 or so, we beat Everton in our first game and finished fourth at the end of the season. We went on to win the league the following year, piddlled Ferguson right off.

Before that Revie and Clough both lifted clubs out of the second division to the top of the tree in a season or two. As you say Bease, you will never see events like that again because football finances are so loaded against the lower divisions.

Wilkinson was the last pom to win the league and there is no one in sight to be the next; maybe Lampard can do it, if he holds on to the job at Chelsea, a position, we all know he would not have got had the club not been sanctioned by Ufea.

Bh -- thanks for the post it is indeed. the black and whites are flying, alongside LU. I am going to give Bielsa a compliment and say that he has done well given our injuries -- Hendnedez -- amognst others, and a key forward whom can't score.

Who is the manager of Swansea at the moment bease? I can't believe that they got rid of Gary Monk so quickly after winning promotion. He went to LU, as you know, but it was different, as he resigned. Let us hope he makes a success at SW.

typical Bielsa performance in front of goal and at the back against the Welsh -- well done to Cardiff.

Bease-- thanks for your post: if they have got any heart, they should still get there, but they lost to Luton last night; one can easily see both Brentford and WBA finishing above LU, especially given our record towards the end of each season in the last few years. Certain strikers steal for a living, bease, as you know. If we had of had Chris Wood, we would have been safe already.

Well done on liverpool's fine effort in winning the first division so comprehensively.

Congrats AR on the return of your beloved Leeds United back into the EPL.
It is good to see they are back in the Premier Division as one of the few clubs outside of the 2 Manchester sides, Chelsea or Arsenal that have actually won a title in the 30 years of the EPL!

bh: thanks mate, your a gentleman; yes, one should also bless Blackburn Rovers and Leicester for the same reason. I will cross my fingers for Swansea, too, they are only a game out of six -- if they make it, you never know.
