    I’m glad Leeds and WBA have come up and the lesser clubs are down, now we need Fulham to do it also the thought of a club like Brentford going up is sickening.

    Why would it be “sickening” for Brentford to go up? What an odd thing to say.

    Well done Brentford, did nothing they would have pulled it back against Swansea, great effort. Good to see fresh teams in the PL

    It’s good to see established pedigree clubs in the EPL not these small clubs with these small staduims and no pedigree. All normal fans want that.

    Well Mighty Moos… I must not be normal. I would love to see the smaller clubs with smaller stadiums in PL…why not. Brighton, Bournemouth Watford, Norwich have all given best efforts and will have another go. I hate the alternative, the sam top 4, whoever that maybe. Years ago, you could not predict top4. Do you remember Carlisle Utd being in top flight, Oldham as well….thought not. but to those fans…it was everything…that is what football should be like

    I think you could make an argument for the big teams in the Championship such as Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday etc coming into the PL as well as a Clubs like Brentford fulfilling a dream.

    Fulham aren’t one of the big teams but one of either Fulham ( providing they hold out against Cardiff) or Brentford will be coming into the PL.

    Difficult to say a Club has no history when it’s been around since 1889.

    Whoever comes up into the PL be it Brentford or Fulham will deserve it having come through the most difficult of seasons and the difficulties of the Play Offs.

    Of the 3 promoted sides all but Leeds are likely to struggle imo.

    I truly hope Brentford realise their dream because fulfilling dreams are an important part of football imo but overcoming a very good Fulham team at Wembley next week won’t be easy.

    So the Play Off Final is a West London Derby at Wembley in North London.

    It could be a great game!

    Would love to see Wednesday back. Forest-Leicester big East Midlands rivalry.

    There are a few Teams currently in the Prem not really pushing the boundaries beyond keeping their heads above water in avoiding relegation.

    Kudos to the ones in recent times who have performed exceptionally well in Sheff United and Wolves.

    It should have been Forest rather than clubs like Brentford, a 15000 football ground makes a mockery of the EPL, rather than leave it as is with crowd noise making machine

    Moos, all Clubs are promoted to the PL on merit either by finishing in the top two or by winning the Play Offs so it clearly shouldn’t be Nottingham Forest who are promoted to the PL because they failed on both counts.

    The capacity of Brentford’s new ground is 17,250 considerably more than Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium which is 11,239 and Bournemouth were in the the PL for 5 seasons and can count themselves very unfortunate not to still be there now having been relegated because Hawkeye failed to register a Sheffield United goal.

    Fulham’s ground Craven Cottage is currently under redevelopment and will eventually have a capacity of 29,600.

    Good luck to both Brentford and Fulham in next Tuesday’s Play Off Final they are both there on merit having competed in what has been the Championships most difficult of seasons.

    It’s not about merit in this case but rather about pedigree to enhance The EPL even more than it currently is. How many world wide fans do Brentford have compared to Forest, Blackburn, Birmingham or even Fulham!

    So what! Would question what Blackburn’s global fan base looks like! Why do you necessarily want to see all the ‘big, global’ clubs at the top table? As 999 says, Bournemouth held their own for 5 years, longer than the mighty WBA, Forest, Derby, Sheff wed etc have had as consecutive Premiership seasons.

    Have you no romance in your body, man?!?!

    Should the world just be full of McDonalds and KFC restaurants, should we all be drinking Coca Cola and Budweiser? What a dreadful, dystopian image that is!!

    Moos, with the possible exception of Nottingham Forest I doubt all of the Clubs you mention above could muster any sort of worldwide fan base.

    Worldwide fan bases are driven by regular success and are a product of Sky TV and the Internet.

    For the majority of football fans football goes a lot deeper than that.

    What an entitled prick. Hate to break it to you, but the football world does not revolve around the top teams! If you watched football outside the top 6 clubs you would understand a bit more. Brentford have been a breath of fresh air this season and are a very good team.

    Both Fulham and Brentford are both good footballing sides and it promises to be a very good Play Off Final.

    Moos…on the basis of your thinking, after you select your top teams, the rest of the football world are wasteing there time even kicking off.
