Chris "Kammy" Kamara is a legend. Kamara revealed this year he has Apraxia.

I hope he has the power to fight that illness like a ferocious beaver. Kammy is a cult personality, even I know about his crazy antics.

It's that most wonderful time of the year: the final week of the Championship, the world's most interesting league. All three relegations have been confirmed (Barnsley, Derby and Peterborough) so this year's intrigue comes atop the table.

First place: Fulham (87 points - promotion already confirmed)

Second place: Bournemouth (82 points, GD +33)

Playoff places: Nottingham Forest (79, +34), Huddersfield (79, +15), Luton Town (72, +14), Sheffield United (72, +14)

Outside looking in: Boro (70, +12), Millwall (69, +9)

Fulham host Luton tomorrow before the Tuesday promotion six-pointer between Bournemouth/Forest. If the Cherries win, they're up. Any other result means Forest can still pip them to promotion. Watch this space.

It seems like "the neutrals" want to see Forest, since its been so long since they were in the top flight. 

But I like the chaos of Milwall in the EPL.

Bournemouth 1-0 Forest on a late goal by Kiefer Moore. Cherries are promoted - it's playoffs or bust for the Reds.

Apparently the UK government said that Chelsea's sale must be completed by May 31

So the new owners have to actually buy the club first

Then the new owners must pass the Premier League's owners test (the quickest that has ever happened is 10 days)

Part of the issue is Roman Abramovich is making noise that he wants repayment on the $2 billion loan he made to the club

We were this close to Arsenal/Millwall in the Championship. Now there's a chance it'll happen in the Premier League. 

As for Nottingham Forest, Steve Cooper has bottled the playoffs twice with Swansea. If he bottles it again with Forest, he might end up with a reputation as a choker.

And fucking Real Madrid is doing it again, this time vs Man City. Absolutely sickening and for such an ungrateful fanbase.

Holy shit, what a finish in League Two.

 

Northampton began the day in the final promotion spot, won 3-1, fairly comfortably, and still were forced down a spot into the playoffs as Joey Barton's Bristol Rovers crushed Scunthorpe 7-0 to pip Northampton to the final auto promotion spot on Goals Scored. The seventh goal caused a pitch invasion by fans that almost cost them the game.

A tale in seven tweets (spoilerized for size).
