I really hope Fulham come up. Enjoyed coming back up the league with them years ago and always had a bit of a soft spot for them.

We were looking at teams that never quite did anything brilliant but had decent players and one of their squads in the 2000's on paper was brilliant! They should have done better imo but I think they messed about with managers too much.

speaking of playoffs, ive been wondering:

do you guys prefer the current method of Premier League relegation (bottom 3) in combination with the promotion from the Championship (top 2 auto + playoff for 3rd)? or would you rather see something like the Bundesliga/2 Bundesliga (bottom 2 BL teams auto-relegated & top two 2BL auto-promoted while 3rd lowest BL goes into a playoff with 3rd place 2BL)?
I'm not really a City fan. I'm just here for attention.

I wouldn't mind seeing a playoff to be honest. Seems a bit more exciting.

I like the current system – a big turnover of teams in the top flight is healthy in my opinion. And you still get the thrill of the play off due to team 3-6 in the Championship battling it out.

A lot of merit in this idea. But I think the Championship needs places 3-6 for play off places to give that division impetus at the end of the season. They were brought in because too many clubs had nothing to play for from late February onwards.

Whether the play off runner up then gets to play the side finishing 17th in a one off game to determine a PL place is perhaps something that could be looked at. Can’t see many PL chairman voting for that though

I think the US Franchise system has some merit - no relegation and only 40,000+ supported teams need apply.......

If they came up I'd buy sessignon and loan him straight back and also loan them Patrick Roberts back for the full season. See how they both cope with a full premier league season

17 years old (okay, 18 in a couple of days) and already made over 80 competitive first-team appearances. Phenomenal player it would seem, but there could be serious potential for early career burnout there.
