Last weekend of the football league tomorrow, and there is a very interesting 3 way race to the second automatic promotion spot.

Reading
Birmingham
Sheffield Utd

Reading host Birmingham, who are 3 points ahead of Reading, so Reading need to win, to go above Birmingham.

Sheffield are 1 point behind Birmingham, so need a win.
Should Sheffield win, they get it, only if Birmingham lose or draw.

I hope Reading get the luck this weekend, mostly cos I work in Reading, and would be good to have premier league footy over here again.

Predictions?

Reading to snatch it ;-)

I've like to see the blades get promoted, especially after the injustice of the West Ham business.

I heard on talk shite that if Reading get it there might be another lawsuit from the Sheff utd or Brum, whoever comes third, regarding the goal that never was, which gave Reading a point.

Then we should take the ref to court who didn't give us the Medes goal...

Wasn't it that season when we lost out on 4th to arsenal?

I really hope reading go up, i've lived here for four years now after moving from london and would defo be good to have prem football again, would be really sneaky of them to snatch it aswell. Mighty have a sneaky bet on them, had to be warnock against sheff utd to decide whether they go up tho.. u reckon he would do them a favour? Nothing in the game for palace

Not bothered which of them get promoted. They all tend to whoop us away from WHL anyway.
