My team Leicester City are champions (although we should never have been in that Division in the 1st place...we went down on the highest ever points and the 2nd best defence in the Championship last season!!!! But....if u don't score goals.....)
Anyway, I live in Birmingham and my wife is a blue nose so I'm backing B'ham but they may have left it too late as they had their chance against Preston!

I fancy Wolves to go up.
Might be tough but I think they might just sneak it in the end.

Wolves are already up! they won the division like a week ago.........

I think b'ham have a good chance but they've started to lose form at the worst time.
just lucky for them that sheff utd haven't taken advantage........
I fancy b'ham to go up automatically and maybe reading to sneak it in the play offs

Can't see Blues beating Reading

Can see Sheffield beating Palace

So I think Sheffield will grab the second spot.

As discussed on TalkSport the other day what if Reading beat Blues and Sheffield lose.

Reading will be promoted, think back to the game with Watford with that ridiculous Reading 'goal' that never went anywhere near the goal. They got a point in that game which could prove crucial.

I know over the season it tends to even itself out but........

Obviously this would not be a problem for Sheff Utd, they'll just sue Stuart Attwell, Reading, Watford, Gary Lineker and the bloke who sells the pies at readings ground.

The Titanic didn't sink on that fateful day, it was her sister ship the Olympic. Read on..............

[COLOR="Red"]One of the most controversial[5][6] and complex theories was put forward by Robin Gardiner in his book, Titanic: The Ship That Never Sank?[7] In it, Gardiner draws on several events and coincidences that occurred in the months, days, and hours leading up to the sinking of the Titanic, and concludes that the ship that sank was in fact the Titanic's sister-ship RMS Olympic, disguised as the Titanic, as an insurance scam.

The Olympic was the older sister of the Titanic, built alongside the more famous vessel but launched in October 1910. Her exterior profile was nearly identical to the Titanic, save for small detailing such as the promenade deck windows. These were not glazed in the Olympic. In the Titanic the front half of the promenade deck was fitted with smaller glazed windows to protect passengers from spray.

On 20 September 1911, the Olympic was involved in a collision with the Royal Navy cruiser HMS Hawke near Southampton. The cruiser smashed its ram into the side of the Olympic, seriously damaging both ships. The inquiry found the Hawke free of all blame. This set in motion Gardiner's theory. White Star Line was allegedly not insured for the cost of fixing the damaged Olympic (which, according to Gardiner, had damage to the central turbine's mountings and the keel). The White Star's flagship would also be out of action during any repairs, and the Titanic's completion date would have to be delayed. All this would amount to a serious financial loss for the company. Gardiner proposes that, to make sure at least one vessel would be earning money, the 95% complete Titanic was converted to become the Olympic. Gardiner states that few parts of either ship bore the name, other than the easily removed lifeboats, bell, compass binnacle, and name badges. Thus, Gardiner believes the Titanic spent 25 years in service as the Olympic.

Gardiner uses as evidence the length of Titanic's sea trials. The Olympic's trials in 1910 took two days, including several high speed runs, but the Titanic's trials reportedly only lasted for one day, with no working over half-speed. Gardiner says this was because the patched-up hull could not take any long periods of high speed.

Gardiner suggests the plan was to dispose of the Olympic to collect insurance money. He supposes that the seacocks were to be opened at sea to slowly flood the ship. If numerous ships were stationed nearby to take off the passengers, the shortage of lifeboats would not matter as the ship would sink slowly and the boats could make several trips to the rescuers.

Gardiner maintains that on 14 April, Officer Murdoch was not officially on duty yet was on the bridge because he was one of the few high-ranking officers who knew of the plan and was keeping a watch out for the rescue ships. One of Gardiner's most controversial statements is that the Titanic did not strike an iceberg, but an IMM rescue ship that was drifting on station with its lights out. Gardiner based this hypothesis on the idea that the supposed iceberg was seen at such a short distance by the lookouts on the Titanic because it was actually a darkened ship, and he also does not believe an iceberg could inflict such sustained and serious damage to a steel double-hulled (sic) vessel such as the Titanic.

Gardiner further hypothesizes that the ship that was hit by the Titanic was the one seen by the Californian firing distress rockets, and that this explains the perceived inaction of the Californian (which traditionally is seen as failing to come to the rescue of the Titanic after sighting its distress rockets). Gardiner's hypothesis is that the Californian was not expecting rockets, but a rendezvous. The ice on the deck of the Titanic is explained by Gardiner as ice from the rigging of both the Titanic and the mystery ship it hit. The collision, according to Gardiner, caused the already fragile structure of the ship to give way, sinking the ship.

Researchers Bruce Beveridge and Steve Hall took issue with many of Gardiner's claims in their book, Olympic and Titanic: The Truth Behind the Conspiracy. [5] Author Mark Chirnside has also raised serious questions about the switch theory.[6]

And for the record, Reading will beat Birmingham 2-1, Sheffield United will beat Crystal Palace 2-0 (paving the way for Neil Warnock to return as manager), Sheffield United will be promoted and Burnley will be promoted through the play-offs.
