    I actually like all these teams. I feel Aston Villa are a proper premier league team and should always be in it.
    I've been to Elland Road during Leeds purple patch ...great place to be when the team is doing well. When they went down I thought they would be right back.

    West Brom...Having gone to Birmingham to watch them play I have a soft spot for them too.

    Derby County? meh, go Leeds.

    Salford City vs. AFC Fylde is the Conference National playoff final (to be played May 11). During the season both teams won the away game. Regardless who wins, it will be the first time for either side in the football league

    It must be brutal to be a Leeds fan right now. They had the season in the palm of their hand almost the whole way and just crumbled down the stretch. Now it's no guarantee they'll even make it in.

    I've never had the chance to see Leeds United in the Premier League, so that's what I'm hoping for the most.

    In order: Leeds > Derby > Aston Villa >>>>> West Brom. I hope Norwich isn't a joke this time because, otherwise, I yawned when I saw them get promoted again. Happy to see Sheffield United in the top flight. Hope Leeds follow suit, Bielsa in tow and everything.

    Bolton ave entered administration and will start next season in League One with a 12 point deduction. The Bassini takeover has fallen through

    One fun thing to look out for next year is the South-Wales derby heating up again. It's been over 5 years since Swansea and Cardiff played each other. It was one of the reasons I was hoping Swansea would have stayed up last year.

    Why are point deductions handed out to teams who enter administration? I mean if I see some guy down and out in the middle of the street I don't run over to him and start kicking the guy in his freaking head.

    Can this game be seen via a (legal) streaming service in North America?

    Salford City is in the football league, they won 3-0.

    The 2nd championship semi-final has been lacking in excitement and chances. Neither side wants to make a mistake.

    Deserved win for Leeds and Derby was flat. However with no away goals rule tie is still open but I think Leeds owned Derby during the season

    Because in the past clubs abused the administration process in pretty gross ways, shafting both local businesses and government (and volunteer organisations such as St. John Ambulance) while allowing themselves to restructure and resume borrowing while scarcely breaking step.

    Leicester City's administration in 2002 was a watershed moment that prompted the penalty to be introduced a year later.

    But couldn't they come up with some way to prevent that without doing the type of damage to a club that leads to them becoming extinct? It just feels like punishing clubs like that is punishing the supporters who don't deserve that instead of the shady owners who do deserve it. My view on this is based on my personal experience of seeing a team I loved more than anything (the Hartford Whalers) die and it is something I wouldn't even wish on my worst enemy.

    Saw this was their 4th promotion in 5 years, wonder if they can continue this, they have some money behind them with Peter Lim (billionaire). They are part owned by the “Class of 92” of Manchester United but have no idea how much they put into the club
