Just heard a surprising stat on Sky.  Since the play offs were introduced over 30 years ago,only 3 finals have ever finished 0-0.  Huddersfield featured in all 3 of them. The boring bastards.

C'mon Forest

That's a cracking stat.  Here's another surprising one, not play off related.  Since the Prem started, no team has ever gone an entire season without being behind at H-T, until this season when Chelsea did it.  For perspective, I think we were losing 15 times this season at H-T (not just conceded first).

Good to see a new face (recent era) in the Prem just like Brentford last year, having these yo-yo teams like Fulham and Norwich going up and down is rather boring.

shite from the var and ref like

Can't believe that pen wasn't given.

Overall, 3 fairly dull play off finals.  Team kicking towards the sunny end takes the lead in 1st half.  Opposition never look like equalising in 2nd half, a real lack of quality and difficult to remember any saves of note or near misses.

Added to the non event FA Cup final and poor Champions League final, that's 5 showpiece games that are easily forgotten if you weren't taking part.

Roll on the summer break and build up to next season.

Used to work in Huddersfield and have a mate in Perth who is a big fan of 'Town' and 'Fartown' (some still call the RL club this and, of course Fart Town when I say it to him).

He must be wearing two black arm bands this weekend. Resisting the temptation to message him at present. I'll give him 24 hours :D

Pleased for Grimsby to get back in the league, where they should be, a proper club.  What an achievement, to be losing at Notts County in 94th minute, assist from keeper and won in E-T; losing at Wrexham with 20 to go and winning 5-4 AET;  losing in the final deep into 2nd half and winning their 3rd game running in E-T.  Nobody can say they didn't deserve it even if they finished miles behind Wrexham in the league.
