Assuming we're still here I've very happy with Burton. They're almost in Derbyshire and I think wished they were.

Arrgghhh!! When you see these 2 come up and think that we could easily go down, its bloody annoying, especially when you consider Wigan and possibly Rotherham could be joining them in League One. If we miss out on this northern league next season, I'll be pig sick.

Wanted Burton to come up last season, seeing as it would've been one of the closer away games. Fair play to them for storming the league this time round though, especially as they took a fairly big punt on Hasselbaink. Won't be long before the big boys start coming in for him

Chuffed for Burton, good little club and only fifteen miles from me in NW Leicestershire.

Two great memories playing them at VP in the last two meetings, the 3-0 win the day we went into administration and finally got a club back and spent the last 15 minutes all on our feet singing as one again after what had happened in the years preceding and the great 7-1 in front of 10k on a Friday night which edged us virtually to promotion. Hopefully we can get the point we need to ensure we can meet again and a visit to the Pirelli and the pub near the Coors factory.

Us and Burton had a bit of a love-in last time we met in the final game of our championship season, in all my years following Gills I can't remember us singing the opposition's name before or since. Great day out in the sunshine even though we got beaten.

Happy Shrewsbury are coming straight back up, don't want to sound patronising but a good little club, with a tidy stadium and a decent fanbase.
