Be interesting to see if both keep their managers. I'd imagine Dyche is a wanted man, so could have his head turned, but you'd think they'd want to keep him and he'd want to stay. Ramsey on the other hand might not be given the chance to get QPR back up. Not sure that's fair necessarily because he's taken over them in an undesirable position, but I don't thin he's done enough to inspire the confidence to let him try to get them back up. Sol will have an opinion I'm sure.

The QPR squad isn't the greatest, but he's played a number of games with a left side consisting of Clint Hill and Karl Henry. Surely that should be a sackable offence?

Aren't QPR in line for some heavy sanctions for breaking fair play? I'm sure I heard a fine of 60m mentioned which Fernandes didn't want to pay, resulting in the Football League being able to deny re-admission.

While I'm sure QPR won't end up in the conference, there's certainly an interesting summer in store and I honestly hope the FL have the balls to see through any punishments.

60m and embargoes. They'll end up settling something incredibly watered down, perhaps 10% and a transfer embargo I imagine.

Good luck to Burnley on bouncing back, have enjoyed your presence in the league this season, been very refreshing. QPR, go away and never grace us with your stench again. Thanks.
Did you get bullied by one of our fans in school or something? Seem to mention your hatred for us more than your own team.

As for next season. We'll do a Fulham at best, much more likely a Wolves if reports of keeping Ramsey on as number 1 are true.

I think Dyche will stay with us for another year, but if we don't achieve immediate promotion [which I doubt we will] then I think he could well look to move on. Having said that, if he stays one more year and is not particularly successful, will he be able to attract the same kind of offers?

Ultimately I think SD believes he can get us back to the big time so he'll look to see the job through.

QPR will struggle to bounce back with the punishments coming their way and rightly so, their wage structure is an absolute joke. Burnley are quite well equipped to challenge next season, a good squad of Championship players have now had a season of Premiership experience under their belt, and with the financial clout they've earned, they should be able to bring in some top end quality. Wouldn't be surprised to see Sean Dyche find his way back into the Premiership though, West Ham could be a possibility.

Don't particularly like either club. Qpr are such an irrelevant football club so desperate for the attention of their big neighbours. They love to tell us West London is theirs....as if we actually care.

London is not shite. Palace and Orient are great clubs. I also like West Ham although I also like Millwall. I was actually being a bit harsh on West London as a trip to Brentford is real cool.

The rest sucks though.

I wasn't talking about their teams, there's some I like such as the aforementioned Palace and Brentford etc, just the place in general. £4 a pint, you can fuck off.

This is true, but I could say the same if you came to Walsall and paid more than £2 for a pint. :lol: (Why you'd come to Walsall is another matter, but there you go)

It is, but you can generally get away without paying more than £1.90 for a pint, so for me it's alright really.

A pint of coke at my local Wetherspoons costs more than £1.90.

Sad to see Burnley go down, they must be loaded now though as they've barely spent a penny of the PL money. I understand where their coming from and as a Pompey fan I have no right to criticise a team for how much they spend on players but did they really think signing the likes of Jutkiewicz, Sordell, Taylor, Kightly was going to keep them up.

Fair play to Sean Dyche though, done a great job there to keep them in contention for 35 games.

I think it was more an attempt to make a team strong enough to get up from the Championship again at the earliest opportunity, I think the promotion came too soon and they didn't want to risk their financial future (for example Portsmouth...) for a short term gain. If they can keep building their squad next season to make a proper assault at the Championship title and come up again, I reckon they'll grab themselves some players to establish themselves. Of course this is all speculation, but that's my opinion on their plans tbh. Obviously if they'd stayed up this season then bonus, but from the way they've handled themselves, I believe that they were ready for relegation from the start.

This is pretty accurate. Our promotion was always about ensuring the long-term future of the club, even if that meant giving ourselves little hope of survival.

From where we are now, we'll go back into the Championship with our finances in a strong position and build from there.
