City and pubs. yes. The fans? Blimey, they can match any of the Prem teams for a sense of entitlement and arrogance.

Not Leeds. Scummy club from a scummy city followed by even more scummy fans.

If WBA come up, doesn't the remainder of their parachute payments get divided out between all PL clubs? No idea what amounts they are, but say 2 more seasons of £25m (?) would be £50m / 20 PL teams = another £2.5m in the kitty? So by WBA coming up and us drawing with Bournemouth (place prize money), that pays Wilfs wages for next season!!

No, I think its because last time I went to West Brom I got caught up in the Vine pub hype and wished I'd stayed longer in the centre as per usual.

Agreed.

After the start they had, by Christmas they were all saying how they'd be challenging for Europe next season. So it's been quite satisfying watching them do their usual collapse a bit later in the season. Some of them are even claiming that the EFL won't "let" them get promoted, as they are the big draw in the division, and so to lose them would hurt the brand. I kind of get the sentiment in a way, but to suggest the league are actively working against them is ridiculous!

All four teams in the play offs have positives and negatives - I think Leeds and Villa would be best equipped to spend to improve and make a good go of staying up. Derby have relied a bit on loan players, and it's Lampard's first season so yet to see if it's just a golden patch or something more, so happy for them to win the play offs.

I think Villa will win the playoffs, they are the team with momentum for me

If I could choose, then I'd choose Derby, I think they are the weakest of the four teams.

For selfish reasons that mean I can get to grounds that I have not seen yet: Villa and Leeds. Already been to Norwich, Derby and WBA but Sheff Utd is also a plus.

Tough call as there are plenty of pluses and minuses to all 4 play off clubs.

My brother in law will be over the moon if Leeds make it so that's a plus. Maybe the only plus. Leeds is ok but getting away from the ground by public transport is a pain.

Villa Park is a cracking ground wherever you sit. Villa must be favourites after their recent excellent run.

The Hawthorns is another good new old ground. Wouldn't mind them winning through.

And Derby County must be the outsiders. Not a fan of Pride Park.

Villa to win.

And, at the top Norwich has always been a good away day or, even better, good for a long weekend. And Carrow Road is a great ground that has changed progressively over the years.

Leeds imo - historically big club, one of the old guard in some respects and with a fantastic manager who I'd love to see have a go in the PL. Loved Bielsa's sportsmanship against Villa.

However, I expect Villa to get promoted and even see West Brom as being more realistic promotees than Leeds - Leeds have really dropped off. Their fans will be distraught because they love Bielsa and he will probably not remain if they fail to go up. The Leeds board failed to back him as he wanted with reinforcements in January apparently.

Derby. To beat their Premiership relegation record of 11 points.

To be honest, when we went up 5 years ago or whatever... my primary goal was for us not to 'beat' their record and now we (and I'm as bad as anyone) moan about this season

To be honest the playoff's options are so evenly matched that it could be any of the Four, possibly the most open it has been for years. I would not be surprised to see the experience of WBA sneak it, and with the Strikers they have can turn any game around.

1. Derby - Lampard is overrated
2. Villa - really easy to get to, nice ground
3. WBA - been there every season for years (even got them in the cup this season)
4. Leeds - their bloody fans.
