Has BWFCi stopped panicking yet? Onwards.
Stopped panicking when we scored. We were in total control from there.

Beevers, Wheater, Madine and Vela all superb today. As was Karacan.

Totally controlled that game. Peterbrough had a ten minute spell before half time but that was it.

Absolutely superb. Had a few too many so won't say owt else.

Today was brilliant. And a day to remember.

Its almost like they were toying with us in the last few weeks to be able to put on a very proffessional performance today and say 'I told you so' . Did exactly what was required and never looked beyond doubt after the first. What a goal that was as well. Also Vela for the third, I thought he was tiring!

Big shout to the guy sat behind me. If you think us not keeping a clean sheet would "spoil the day" you need to get out more pal. Notice you didnt hang around for the trophy either. Hope I am spared the pleasure of your company at future matches I am not sure football is for you if you cannot enjoy days like this!

Very well done PArky - preparation spot on for this.

Enjoyed every single second today. Such a composed performance given the circumstances.

I think Anderson et el will bring in some astute loans and frees. Let's establish ourselves in the Championship next season and go from there.

Well done Parky, the staff and the players!

Probably one of the best performances all season saved until last. Looking forward to the Championship with more optimism.

Parkinson has one hell of a job to do from now till the start of next season. I'm sure he will do very well with his selection but it all depends on the budget the club can offer. I'm not expecting miracles but more stability and a hard to beat side.
Well done Wanderers and the fans in attendance.

That was one of the better games I've ever been to. Really good day, great atmosphere around the stadium today.

Anyone know the formation that was? If anyone thinks that was 3-at-the-back I'll strongly disagree. They even did a warm-up thing with the FOUR defenders before the match :P

Fantastic!

It's 3 at the back. They've done that warm up for weeks, with the 4. Parky still refers to it as a back three.

It's not often that I out panic-fanny BWFC-I, but I didn't settle down until the third went in. Even thought that Madine had a very good game today, except for when he tried to pick out the top corner on 88 mins and picked out the top corner of the North Stand instead ;) . Beevers and Wheater were monolithic at the back, and I was really impressed with Karacan, whose excellent first-time finish from Dervite's peach of a ball in is probably my favourite goal of the season. Can't wait to see it again. We really do need to keep, as much as is possible, today's side together for next season. I just hope we can.

Regarding the pitch invasions. Why did the coppers and stewards not simply usher the absolute bellends from special needs corner who ran onto the pitch whilst the game was in progress out through the gated exit between the south and west stands?

And those of you who ran on at the end - I'd have turned the 4ucking sprinklers on. :)

Favourite moment though was possibly on full time, seeing Morais raise his hands aloft, before falling to his knees and kissing the pitch. One to keep, that boy.

On the bus home, absolutely twatted. Verbal, Dartisan and (presumably now) Parky's Eleven the company. Singing songs no-one else understood, capped with a quick blue WKD and home. Smashing stuff.

Heard a rumour on the bus though... don't know if anyone can confirm, but they reckon the whites are going up??

Not seen it again but heard Karacan's came off his shin....

Not sure I agree totally about keeping the squad together. We need ones who are good enough for that level. I'd argue a few aren't.

Anyway, Ken needs to get us out of embargo and financially stable pronto!

I have, and it's a superb finish out of his instep. I didn't say squad, I said today's team. By way of squad it's the apposite time to trim out the likes of Trotter, Moxey, Davies and so on.

Regarding financial stability, I'm hoping that today's attendance might show any possible investor that there's potential within the club.

See you next term.

Aye. Hopefully an investor out there noticed the away followings and today's attendance. Potential is there.

Most of the starting team I'd keep. I'd say there are question marks to varying degrees over Spearing, Morais and Madine.

Is Madine good enough at a higher level? Is spearing value for money and has Morais had his purple patch? He's getting on a bit and not necessarily going to maintain this form.

On balance if deals can be done I'd be happy but there is a significant injection of quality required. Anyhow that's for another day.....

I enjoyed today ... a lot.

The calmer I've ever been for any of our, all too frequent, 'decider' matches. I was never nervous and the performance justified that.

There are some good players in that squad and Parkinson knows how to find them on the cheap as he's proven many times now. It's a higher level and we'll need some good additions but I'm confident he'll get them (Ameobi is out on contract as at now btw).

I hear a lot about his only having one plan. That's, firstly, incorrect and secondly, after the last 5 years, so bloody what if it is ?

I have no illusions about next season being simple but I don't fear it either.

The one really sad thing is that next year's squad won't contain anyone that I know I'm a better player than ... assuming Liam Trotter finally clears off.
