    I'm not logical, plus as everyone knows never let the football get in the way of a day out at the football. 17 aways means 17 quality piss ups with mates ;)

    I have 3 nailed on next season as they're the only new grounds for me: Brighton, Spurs and West Ham. The Mrs has picked Newcastle and Man City as two she hasn't been to that she'd like to.

    Any others depend when they are and if the grandparents can babysit.

    Oh for the days of knowing I was going to a game regardless.

    Sheff Us achievement is quality to be fair, no real stars in the squad, no one on massive money, will be interesting to see what they do in the premier league, keep the same ethos or spend some money - got some board room issues an all I think

    Hope they do ok (and I say this as a bitter deedar hating twat!)

    17? Decent :clap:

    I'm the opposite. Only managed a couple this season due to buying a house/getting married so now I have some money again I fully intend to nail it from August onwards :laugh:

    I've averaged between 15-17 since we got promoted, think i did 19+ including cups in league one and the championship (but there were more new grounds to do) and didn't miss a single European away.

    How the f*ck i'm not single i have no idea :laugh:

    I did 23 away games this season, to places I'd never heard of mainly and I wish I was single but the mardy trout keeps coming home!

    Is this a dick waving contest now?

    Me too

    Football fans are special kinds of idiots

    Still, what else would we do on Saturdays? Or Saturdays, Sundays, Fridays, Mondays or whenever Sky/BT decide in your case!

    The wisest words written on this forum in a long time, there can't be many people who are disappointed they're not getting the chance to go to Luton :laugh:

    Okay but you say 7th is the realistic best (probably not at the moment with how shit Man U are). But say you get relegated, isn't it the same? 3rd would be the highest as you wouldn't want to get promoted again - assuming you throw the playoffs. Otherwise 7th

    Perfect world scenario would be winning the league, spending a season in the prem and going back down again, then going for it again. The premier league is a shit place for most clubs, and even shitter for the fans, at least in the championship you look to win games and there's a far bigger spread of teams that can achieve something.

    Ultimately though i don't know the answer, football is pretty f*cked in all honesty.

    It's a shame the story is way more boring than the headline. When it came out this morning I was starting to question whether the last few months was real life or not :laugh:
