re: Promotion Talk--West Ham will face Blackpool for £90 million & promotion to EPLPosted by BobLoblaw on 5/3/12 at 6:44 pm to BraveTiger225
The earlier the playoffs are over the earlier the teams involved can prepare for next season. The automatic promotion teams have a head start in negotiating with their players and trying to lure players around the world with the draw of epl soccer. If these teams are going to have a chance at staying up this summer is vital to their chances.

Hmmm, well a few years back I was at a pub here in SF to watch West Ham play and there happened to be a British soccer commentator who was visiting. He said this match is really popular in the UK because it means promotion and a $100 million to the victor. He was a cool guy to talk to about soccer thats for sure.
