    Brighton play the most attractive football of the bunch so I’d like to see them play in the EPl next season. The playoffs will be very exciting.

  2. Smokey Bacon says:

    Brighton. Been out of the top flight for too long. EPL quality stadium.

  3. Nelson says:

    I’d like to see that crazy Ian Holloway back in the EPL.

  4. San Franciscan says:

    Ian Holloway all the way.

  5. Andre says:

    I’d like to see Brighton although I’ve always liked Zola. I think its funny Gus Poyet was rumored for the Reading job in that bizarre period after they sacked McDermott and before they got around to actually replacing him. Turned out well for him.

  6. Matt says:


    in that order, not too thrilled Hull are up though

  7. jtm371 says:

    Watford or Palace if their is a God no Foxes.

  8. trickybrkn says:

    Up the Hornets.

  9. Scott says:

    Has to be Palace.

  10. steven wade says:

    Watford or Palace. I’d like to see Zola’s receptions at Upton Park and The Bridge (I assume they’d be very opposite receptions) and I’d like the keep the London Derby count high so Palace would also keep that in place. Plus, I love Ian Holloway’s media statements.

  11. Kevin says:

    I studied for a term in Leicester and went to a couple of their matches (when I wasn’t busy taking the train down to London to see Spurs), so definitely them.

  12. Frank says:

    Does anyone know who will be televising the playoffs? Fox or beIN?

    • The Gaffer says:

      beIN SPORT — as long as the games don’t conflict with La Liga or Serie A matches. Fingers crossed they’ll make them accessible live for beIN subscribers.

    • David says:

      beIn’s TV schedule is showing that the playoffs will be shown live beginning Thursday at 2:45 ET.
