Fulham - because I cannot stand their pseudo-Arsenal of the Championship fans or the media's obsession with their shitty ground.

Fulham for me....I think they would win the playoffs......however the ultimate scenario is Fulham v Wednesday both needing a point to keep Leeds out of the playoffs and deciding to have a kick about for 90 minutes. The fallout would be class.

On our day we'll beat anyone, Leeds are on the face of it the easiest, but their whole attitude makes me think we'd struggle to have our day.

Sorry to disappoint, but I expect to be there.

Have you ever won a poll?

No idea.

Agreed, that would be most enjoyable

Fulham are the toughest but I want us to face them. If we can beat them over two legs we have one hell of a chance. The other 3 do not concern me. Huddersfield blow hot and cold, Leeds are crap and have no plan B and Wednesday have a terrific record of bottling the big games.

I'd fecking hate it if Leeds went up, on a slim chance as they are a bunch of annoying twunts

That said I have a sneaky suspicion Wednesday might well do Fulham in the playoffs but that would mean Huddersfield dropping a fair bit

Reading - because the most likely way of missing out is by finishing second

Fulham absolutely for me. They're the best footballing side and are more likely to beat us over 2 legs

Does anyone know any Fulham fans? Would be interesting to know if they rate themselves as highly as we appear to.

I know one at work, he reckons if they make the playoffs it's theirs to lose.

Would be interesting to hear what team other play off hopefuls want to miss out. I wonder any of the other teams as grounded as most of us seem to be?

Yeah, I know one. Not confident they'll make it as they have a bad performance or two in them and expects at least one in the last 3 games.

If they do make it, wants to avoid us mainly because his family are Reading STH.

I think Weds are the best team on paper. There's a lot experience and quality up front.

not that it counts for a lot. I think Fulham will exhaust themselves trying to get in, Leeds are bang average with a good goalscorer, and Hudders and us are good all round teams with the best management.

There's a good thread on OwlsTalk, they are mostly worried about Fulham, then us. Leeds and Huddersfield less so.

Best team on paper, also the most unbalanced of the squads. Don't see people talking about them much and seeing them go under the radar concerns me more.

Huddersfield and Leeds are beatable, on a par with us, but on their day can take anyone else around them.

The OP on one of those threads reckons we'll finish 5th :lol:

Most seem to think we'd finish 3rd/4th more sensibly though.!

They have a number of new middle class fans, who've moved to the South West London area who support other Premier League clubs but take their kids to Fulham because they can get tickets and they look down on proper clubs like Brentford.

I know this because I live 2 miles from Fulham and my kids go to school in the area.

Best scenario for me - Leeds dropping out, for the LOLZ
Wednesday in the semi's - done the double over them so far this season so we know we have a decent chance
Huddersfield in the final - Nice bunch of fans and good team so deserve to get to the final. Obviously I'd want us to win it but if we didn't then I wouldn't begrudge them a promotion, or at least they would be preferable to the other playoff teams

Meanwhile Fulham are forced to ground share with Plymouth and the entire city of Leeds is bulldozed to create an enormous gay dogging zone and the team melted down to glue.
