    Penalties it is. I love it when it goes to pens and I'm a neutral.

    Either Brentford or Yeovil will be in the Championship next season.

    Crawley were not long ago too, but a cup game against man utd a few year ago changed everything for them.

    No, sugar daddy owners spending millions of pounds at non-league level helped them.

    Always wanted to do that. If I was a billionaire to buy a non league side and do something like championship manager. Taking them all the way to the top and being loved by the fans. :)

    Or you could sugar daddy a club, win a record seven League of Wales titles, get bored, pull the plug and the club goes bust. Twice. That's the Barry Town story.

    Or, you could sugar daddy a club and threaten to pull the plug. Oxford and Derby know this all too well thanks to a Mr. Ian Robert Maxwell. And clubs like Middlesborough and Bristol City would be nowhere without the resources and patience of Steve Gibson and Steve Lansdown respectively.

    Or, you could sugar daddy a team, get bored, sack your manager and hire three more managers within twelve months. That's the Wolverhampton Wanderers story.

    Or, you could sugar daddy a team, spend way too much on a bunch of mercenaries, sack the man who got you promoted, sack his successor, then hire a crook. That's the Big Book Of Queen's Park Rangers.

    Or, you could sugar daddy a team, do well and still sack the manager. But replace him with someone who doesn't do that badly. That's the legend of Southampton FC.

    Or, you could sugar daddy a team, secure the club's assets against the bank you also own, and then cry when that bank goes bust and the debtors come knocking, saying that they're taking over your stadium as collateral. That's how Heart of Midlothian have had it this year.

    Being a sugar daddy isn't easy. For every Chelsea and Manchester City, there's an equal and opposite Gretna.

    Leicester take a 1-0 advantage to Watford after their decent display tonight. Watford are good at home though and 1-0 is a slender margin against the 2nd top scorers of the league.

    The Albion take on arch rivals Crystal Palace tomorrow at Palace so expect fireworks in this tie.

    Good.

    Cup heroes they may be, but they have been woefully inconsistent for seven loooooong years.

    It's going to be a nail biter on the weekend with Spurs and Arsenal, although to be honest, I'd actually prefer Arsenal to be in the Europa League as at least they might get passed the QF in that comp.

    3 goals in the first 28 minutes secured a 3-0 win to promote Bradford. Congrats.

    Congratulations Bradford! They deserved it for me because of that amazing cup run.
