End of 2004/2005 Season Part 1

Originally uploaded by beansport88.
So the football season has ended for most teams now. Halifax had a bad run of results at the end of the season and finished 10th. Huddersfield finished 9th after getting 28 points out of the last 30 available but just failing to reach the play offs. A comfortable 5 points ahead of Bradford though with next season looking promising and this season's targets achieved.

The Championship ended today with Sunderland and Wigan being promoted. Wigan don't have many fans for a Premiership club but maybe if Paul Jewell can bring some top names to the club they can start to fill their ground. Crewe sensationally avoided relegation today by winning for the first time since New Years Day when they were to 8th sending Gillingham into League 1. Looks like another season for Dario Gradi (in charge since 1982). Things changed for Crewe when they sold Dean Ashton to Norwich who put their destiny in their own hands yesterday after beating Birmingham. The top four in the Premiership is now known so the excitement is at the bottom where 3 from 4 will go down and for the final UEFA Cup spot which the winner of the Man City Middlesborough match will take unless Spurs can perform miracles.

Liverpool are into the Champions League final after their goal was given even after it had not crossed the line though to be fair a penalty would probably have been awarded with the Chelsea keeper probably given a red card so on this occasion the result would have been the same. A goalline camera showing what the above picture shows is all that is necessary to prevent this from happening again.
