      Everybody: Thank you very much for all the feedback. We’ll do these threads every week, but as you’ll hear during the show (which will be distro’d very soon), almost all of this feedback was featured in the show.

      This one I’d like the experts on the show to answer: I would like to know in the History of England Football, Has there ever been a team from the lower divisions in football who has CONSECUTIVELY each year been promoted without being relegated? I know it’s very unlikely. But I wonder if it has ever happened with a team going all the way to the EPL? or anywhere else in Europe in UEFA history?

        Sean, my team – Swansea City – almost did it. They were promoted from the Fourth Division (old League Two) to Third Division to Division Two in successive seasons. But took two seasons to be promoted to the First Division (old Premier League). The rise from the Fourth to the First Division was under manager John Toshack, who recently departed the Wales national team job.

        In their first season (1981/82) in the First Division, they beat Manchester United, Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal. And finished in sixth position. In 1982, they played in the European Cup Winners Cup where they beat SC Braga in the preliminary round, Sliemma Wanderers in the first round before succumbing to Paris Saint-Germain who they lost to 0-3 on aggregate.

      Simple topic to discuss? What is wrong with Manchester City?

      Should Wayne Rooney have played? I think the bigger issue for United is how they let the match slip away. A number of squandered chances and a lack of concentration at the end cost them the game, not Wayne Rooney.

      True, Stuart Atwell’s a huge talking point: inconsistent. Nothing given for the foul on Lee Chung-yong (and I’m an Arsenal fan, and I admit that was a foul), for starters; then, a red card to Gary Cahill where a yellow would surely have sufficed (and for that matter, halting play rather than playing advantage), then giving nothing to Paul Robinson for that mindless tackle.

      Was a red card given to the wrong person in the Arsenal vs Bolton match. Should Kevin Davies have received one instead of Gary Cahill?
