Hull City 2-0 Scunthorpe. Automatic Promotion, Why Not?

This was a thoroughly professional performance from the team on a winning streak in this Division, and if we carry on in this rich vein of form then it is not beyond the realm of possibilities that we could secure a top two finish and automatic promotion.


The top sides namely West Brom, Stoke, and Watford have all suffered bad results of late and whilst I expect us to drop points we need not be afraid of any team in this League.


“The only thing to fear is fear itself”, and this famous FDR quote is the only factor that may disrupt what seems to be our unstoppable march to the Premiership.


The “fearful symmetry” is thus.


On 26th May 1989, my last “significant” birthday, Arsenal went to Liverpool requiring an unlikely 2-0 victory to secure the Title. Mickey Thomas “it’s up for grabs now” injury time strike produced the necessary result.



 On 26th May 2008 I will be forty. It’s the day of the Championship Play Off Final at Wembley.
