Cardiff and Swansea both in the playoffs

Not an ideal time to be a County fan unsure when (or even if) we'll ever kick a ball again, is it?

Why ?
I dont see them as rivals anymore....when was the last time we faced any of them in the League...?????
.Swansea in the FA CUP years ago when we were non league and Cardiff in the Welsh invitational trophy , also many years ago were the last time we played either of them.
Unless we draw them in the FL Cup or the FA Cup it will be many years until we face them in the same League unless they have a mighty fall as I cant see us climbing the pyramid unless someone wins the Euro lottery

Horrible bleeders but I have to say a HUGE WELL DONE to Nathan Jones on saving Luton...They were 10 points adrift in February. He came back and saved them

Incredible night of football in the Championship. How did Forest surrender an 8 point goal difference from the start of the night. Remarkable and well done the Jacks. Swans v Cardiff final with the Jacks to win.

Like others have said, they are no longer our rivals. They are both streets and stadiums ahead of us. They know when they are playing football again, like the rest of our League, we don’t. I just hope that things are progressing behind the scenes because we may not even have a bloody home in a few years.

So glad they didn’t just ‘null and void’ the season. It’s been a great ending and final day in the Premier League should be a cracker too.

Think it was a +5 advantage, but still a massive turnaround. Reading defender getting sent off was a big bonus.

I’ve said before,it is good to have a Welsh team in the Premiership and I can see a live Prem game if I want to now and then.I watch them as a neutral not hating or loving them.

Great to see Cardiff and Swansea in the Play Offs. Well done to both especially Swansea who had a great deal to do.

:cheers:
Thanks chaps. Unbelievable end to the season tonight. Never thought we’d turn over that goal deficit with Notts forest.
Nerves are in bits now.

I'd rather it be Swansea than Cardiff. I'd rather it a Welsh side than an English side. But I'm a County supporter and won't lose too much sleep, whichever of the four go up.

Wasn't expecting both of them in the playoffs, but I did post a while back wondering, if (Cardiff) are ultimately successful, there might be a couple of fringe/younger players surplus to requirements. Neither club will have issued a retained/released list yet so who knows.

Agree with comment.
It would be good for South Wales to have a premiership team and like you said perhaps we could benefit from a loanee or two from either of their sides

If there was an international tiddlywinks tournament and Cardiff were playing Timbuctoo, I'd support the latter. It's not in my dna to support those coconuts.
