Not the best of feelings towny but hopefully you can do a Burnley and bounce back. Trouble is it's a very competitive division.

Very true Foxy and we need to find a scoring streak soon, we don't want to start next season on the back foot, and of course our relegation will be made 100 times worse if Leeds take our place in the premier league.

All the Terriers seem to need is a decent striker. This seasons bad memories will quickly fade when you are ripping up the championship. I'd recommend Bradley Dack as attacking midfielder..... We have a 15% sell on clause. 20 million should buy him :thumbup:

Bit of a leap from £750,000 to £20 mill. Barney, you're not on commission are you?

Lol. It was only 750k because he was within 6 months of contract end. We'd previously turned down 2.5 million when we looked like getting promoted. 2 x league one player of the year. Shortlisted for championship player of the year. No commission for barney but the club could certainly do with the dough

I think we are going to need every penny of the parachute payments to try and avoid dropping straight through the Championship. So hands off our cash.

Well done Moby did you go today? Will you be going to the final?
Oh and if you're done with Deeney can we please have him on loan for next season? :thumbup:

Well done to your lot Mob. :clap:
I haven't forgotten the kindness of your supporters towards my club after the Vichai disaster so I'm really pleased for them and really pleased for you. :thumbup:

PS Left it a bit late didn't you, but them you seem to make a habit of turning things around at the last minute. :(
Any chance the 'Ornets can do something with Brexit? :lol:

There were some empty seats at Wembley but I watched it on BT Sport while sitting in front of the fire with a beer and some crisps. These days I much prefer the comfort, the commentary and especially being able to see the close up replays and both ends of the pitch. ;)

ps … There was a MOTD FA Cup Highlights on BBC1 last night, watch it if you can as most of the goals were really top drawer.

pps … Deeney will probably hang his boots up at Watford else sign for Birmingham City when his legs give out :wave:

I did watch the first half on the TV from the BT app on my tablet (via my son's logon but don't tell anybody), unfortunately the tablet battery ran out at halftime, I did see the goals on the news though and Deulofeu's first was a bit special.

Yes indeedee, well done the Hatters :clap: :clap:

Foxy and I are still fighting it out to see who is in, also the highest within, the top 10 :lol:

ps … if you have a decent striker under 24 years old he will probably be sold during the summer recess.

pps … I read that Mike Harford will be replaced for their challenge in the Championship.

ppps … trust you are keeping well.

He isn't being replaced MOB. He doesn't want the job apparently, and they are having Neil Jones. I am not on here much these days because Sue has had Colon Cancer and had half her colon removed followed by intensive chemo. Sue is fine at present apart from side effects of the chemo, personally I am exhausted and feeling my age, but determined she shall make a recovery if at all possible. Not sure if we will ever go cruising again though. Never mind keep smiling is my motto especially after Saturday's result.

All the very best to the both of you Frank. The Hatters were worthy winners of league one. Ironically with a couple of players that Gillingham deemed not good enough a few seasons back. Good luck with the big boys in the championship.
