    Norwich fan here, good summary of the evening. I sat in disbelief as Cardiff fell apart before my eyes, expecting the race to go down to the final day of the season. Having it sealed tonight, without the specter of points deductions ahead of us feels pretty good.

    A lot has been said of Norwich’s ability to score late minute goals though, handy as they are, they really do help with ones blood pressure!

    Cardiff fan. Gutted. We absolutely bottled it. Congratulations to Norwich for their deserved promotion – when it came down to it they held their nerve and we didn’t. I fully expect us to blow the playoffs now.

    PS. “Plumpened”?

    Those crazy pranksters at the FA… You mean the people who said Luton were a warning to everyone else about breaking their rules. The people who have now investigated their 1st club since!

    The FA spent over a year investigating Luton and the best part of a season looking at QPR. The warning set by these cases is make the FA aware that you’ve broken their rules and then they’ll come after you….

    Can any fan be absolutely sure that if your dodgy chairman happened to drop the FA a line about something dodgy that he’d done, that the FA wouldn’t rock up for a year to finally work out one club at a time that the game breaks as many as those crazy pranksters set

    Looking forward to Friday’s announcement that it’s unfair to punish the QPR fans for a misdemeanour that wasn’t their doing. So soon after setting the precedent of vengefully killing off another clubs season before it even started!
