That time of the year again where, with 10 games left, there are a handful of tier two sides fighting to get promoted. This year it's narrowed down to 8 which are: Bournemouth, Derby, Watford, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Brentford, Ipswich & Wolves.

So who do you want to get promoted?

Watford, simply because I work around 15 minutes walk from the Vicarage Road and might be able to get tickets for a few games through a friend in work.

Would it be that hard to get a ticket for Watford even if they are in the Prem?

Well you just cannot walk up and get one these days as you have to be a member/brought tickets before and be on the "system"

Somebody would have to use their Fan ID number to get one - be ok if your work mate was a Season ticket holder.

My club maybe pretty successful on the pitch currently, but off the pitch we're still in League One in various ways. The ticketing is chaotic enough already for example, almost impossible unless you're an ST holder. The stadium is obviously sub-par. It would be hilarious and ridiculous if we got promoted, frankly.

But if we did manage it, then the money would utterly transform the club, it's just so vastly different to the income we have now.

Very similar things could be said about us - though I doubt we'd even be allowed to play in our stadium in the Premier League, too small, no media facilities, and we still have terracing!

Money from the PL would pay for our new stadium in a few months, absolutely crazy amounts.

Middlesbrough have been playing some good stuff from the little I've seen. Would be great if Brentford made it. Don't really mind on the other club.

Griffin Park is great. One of those where a ground is just around the corner. One of my favourites in London.

Depends if we stay up. If we do Bournemouth, Watford and Brentford joining us would be great. If the more likely scenario of us going down happens, you guys can have Boro, Derby and Norwich.

Bournemouth, Derby and Brentford for me.

Always enjoy seeing teams that haven't played in the Premier League get their chance, and I'm a big fan of Steve McClaren so I'd like to see him back in the top flight.

I must say I'm not overly fond of them either, but if they do get promoted then I'll be pleased for Steve Gibson.
one of the worst football days of my life

May 2008 - Riverside Stadium - Boro 8 City 1
1) whilst it was bloomin hot and sunny everywhere else in the country, it was bloody freezin up there. literally engulfed in thick smog as we got closer to the ground
2) we lost 8-1
3) the police started on us, more specificially the police started on a guy dressed as a banana jovily dancing near the front
4) closest thing i've been to being in a footballing riot
5) me chicken buttys got wet

Aye, got a lot of time for Gibbo me. Been involved at the club going on 30 years now, he's a good bloke.

Bournemouth, Brentford and Derby. Going a bit off Brentford though after the Warburton situation. If he gets them consecutive promotions and they then change manager it'll be a massive risk.

Middlesbrough just don't have many fans. Watford are just a feeder club. Norwich were only up here last season.

Bournemouth, Ipswich and Brentford, all local games and would especially like Brentford for the terracing.

Yeah, almost certainly won't be able to play at Griffin Park if we go up.
Has the club got any closer to deciding what stadium you may have to move into? Or going to wait and see how the season pans out?

I know there was talk of Madejski, Vicarage Road or Twickenham.

Always found that a weird choice tbh, two stadiums miles away at football clubs. Or be closer but in a stadium that would only be a 1/3 full. Must be better options - even a temporary improvement to Griffin Park (I think thats what Bournemouth were planning?)

Trouble is there is a lot to improve at GP, we wouldn't be able to get everything done in one summer, and the PL hasn't told us yet if they would let us off some of the rules as a one off. If we can then that would be the first choice.

It would be very difficult for us to share with any of QPR, Fulham or Chelsea, who are all pretty close, due to transport and policing issues, so we'd have to look further afield at places like Palace, Reading or Watford.
