It's Udders

Huddersfield Town will join us in the Championship next season after seeing off Sheffield United in a long and hot final at Wembley yesterday. Neither side could break the deadlock until penalties and even then match was won with the last kick of the chosen eleven as Steve Simonson ballooned his spot-kick against his opposite number one in Alex Smithies.

Lee Clarke must have mixed emotions this morning having been relieved off his duties rather unfairly with his side in fifth place. No doubt there will be few Terriers thinking of him this morning and Simon Grayson looks like he has fallen in the dung and come up smelling of roses. At least he has had the good grace to compliment Clarke for his contribution.

Danny Wilson suffers the ignominy of seeing his loss magnified by the fact that his Massive former club and city rivals squeaked in ahead of him. The Ched Evans debacle looks like it has cost the Blades dearly. 

I caught part of the second-half of the Norway v England game and it was very clearly a friendly. I know we have been away from the top of the game for a long time and as a Scot I don't really follow the England set-up with any strong interest but the side looked dismal to me. Jones, Baines, Lescott, Jagielka, Milner, Young, Downing and Carroll? Even the bench contained two Henderson's (?), Oxlade-Chamberlain and Johnson. They deserved that terrible kit they were wearing.

I can't help feeling for Sheff Utd. But both sides had 120+ minutes of football to score a single goal, and couldn't.
Oh well! That (ginger) Quinn look s worth a punt to me.
Agree about the awful England kit. It looks like it should be worn by a different national team........just can't think who :)

Would agree with Daggs, as much as I'd like to ignore it, I do feel for Sheff U. Just imagine not going up with 90 points? Horrendous!
