Southampton and Reading have had glorious seasons. Peter Beagrie wonders who will finish top...Back to story
If anyone has watched West Ham over the last few months, or watched Reading and Southampton, i think putting a lot of money on west ham going up automatically would be a bit of waste. Reading set up to win games and stop the other teams by playing by utilisting a busy and hard working midfield. They defend from the strikers backwards and they can stop most teams using there most effective players through this and also careful consideration from our manager. Itll be hard against southampton as they have the strikers and wingers with the ability and the confidence to possibly unpick our defence (the only team in the league who i think can do this), but is the promotion race over? probably by next saturday we will definately know the result of this league. Southampton and Reading both deserve to go up in my eyes by spending small, and building strong teams, with limited egos, so the title race doesnt seem to important to me, as both teams have proved over a season that they deserve it

Massive game for us tonight. Altohugh I dont really mind about winnig the league I think that if we win tonight we will secured promotion as southampton would be between us and west ham. Whatever happens tonight I think Reading and southampton will be the top two and they both deserve it.

Im going to saint marys tonight, although sky sports coverage has always been good covering the royals, the atmosphere at st marys will be electric and i believe that the two best teams in the division are up there, iv said for years that southampton are a prem club in the wrong league, however as much as i like them i really hope your all upset tonight, good luck to both!!

Wes Davis, You'd be prepared to lose a lot of money on West Ham going up automatically.
Posted 10:28 13th April 2012
Surely is going to be a tough game for us but I'm confident southampton can get a hard earned win.. If not a draw won't be 2 bad... Westham will be out of the race by tomorrow whatever the result....

This is the game that will decide who wins the league. Should be a cracker
Posted 21:42 12th April 2012
I know who I would like to win on Fridays match between Southampton and Reading, and that is Reading. But I must admit, this game is going to be a tough one for both teams. My gut feeling is it will end in a draw, and the fight for top will still be there. Come on you Rsszzz!

West ham matey, you are having a laugh. The most negative team I've seen all season. One up front at st Mary's was pathetic. Should never have appointed big spam, terrible manager. Saints will beat reading tomorrow. West ham will draw with Brighton. Saints will seal promotion on Tuesday at Peterborough and the league title will be ours after Middlesbrough. UTS and goodbye Portsmouth :-) Nostradamus the Saint

Massive game tommorrow night, no matter what happens these two teams have been the best two in the league and both should go up. Sorry West Ham but i attended both of the games, at St. Mary's and Upton Park and you didn't show enough to me other then the Big Sam HOOF. The Royals have been entertaining to watchall season just as saints have been. Come on Bristol City, my dads team will hopefully get the massive three points they need to stay up, a result which will hopefully nail pompey's coffin shut.

Sorry i have written Wet Spam off already, you had your chance's. Tomorrows game is the title decider, gonna be a very tense affair, wouldn't like to call it but a draw would negate any threat Wet Spam may think they still have COYR's.....

It's crazy to think Reading had to make up 18 points on Southampton from earlier in the season. Earlier in the season us Reading fans weren't even that confident of a play-off place and now there's a possibility of winning the title. Massive game tomorrow Roberts has been a brilliant signing and McDermott in my opinion is the best manager in the league and one of the best in the country every season losing his best players and getting us close to promotion and this season looks like we could actually do it. Whatever the outcome tomorrow I think Reading and Southampton will both get promoted. Winning the title again would be a nice bonus though

Hats off to Reading, they have had a good run in when it counts, but I cant see us folding now, we have been top for 98% of the season because he kept the same mentality from the end of our promotion push to the Championship. Great Blog by the way and I'm pretty sure that everyones blood pressure is rising by the hour towards Friday and the end of the season. UTS!!!!!
Posted 15:35 12th April 2012
A difficult one to call on Friday. It could go either way, but I can't see Reading playing for a draw as it's not their style. Brighton were good the other night and we rode our luck a little and will offer stiff opposition to West Ham on Tuesday. I think whoever wins on Friday can look forward to the premier next season and likely followed by the other. I'm not sure West Ham will win all 4 games to put the pressure on, particularly as 2 of them are at home and they've not won at home for 8 games.

I don't think you should be writing off West Ham just yet. I'd be prepared to put a lot of money on us going up automatically. Seriously, this isn't over yet.
Posted 14:11 12th April 2012
Massive game for us Friday and it's going to be a tough game to call but I think we can nick it. I do believe that whoever wins this game will win the title this season but pretty confident that both sides will go up, with a bit of luck Brighton can do us a massive favor beating West Ham on Saturday and all but cement our chances of going up. At the other end though Bristol City have a fantastic chance of relegating Portsmouth Saturday and promoting us the following Tuesday! All I can say is what a fantastic end to the season it's shaping up to be for us and wish every other teams the best of luck in their promotion/relegation fights and that does include Portsmouth although I think it's too late for them now
