Champions or play-off winners?

Do you prefer to see your team promote by winning the title/ finishing second, or via the play-offs? I do not know but I feel the media give the play-offs more imprtance & hype than the attention they give to the teams which get promoted directly

Champions, because you are the champions. But I see what you mean with the play offs getting more hype, and a trip to the Millenium Stadium, so I guess the play offs could be more exciting, and well that's what I'm pinning my hopes on anyway, as top 2 seems a bit too far out of reach for us

Of course, if we lose, I'll never admit it was me who wrote this.

Play-off winners!

Play-off Finals are like cup-finals

I don't get to see Bournemouth play in many good stadiums, but to cheer them on to glory at the Mill' Stad' in 2003 was fantasic!

Having experienced both, the PO is a lot lot more satisfying IF you get promoted.
