Part of me would like Cardiff to win to make the relegation run more interesting. But the other half wants Brighton to win to cement our place in the premiership next year even more. I won't be 100% happy until we're mathematically safe.

I've been thinking along those lines as well!

I'm not too bothered tbh, a Cardiff win increases our chances of finishing slightly higher in the league as a Brighton win puts them 2 points behind us.

As i've said on another thread, Cardiff don't win this one they are down imo. Win and I can see them perhaps pipping Brighton who have a run in of
Wolves (a)
Spurs (a)
Newcastle (h)
Arsenal (a)
Man City (h)

The only thing in their favour is their goal difference is much better then Cardiff, but I Brighton fail to pick up any points from those games and Cardiff pick up 6 points from their last 5 games they'll finish on 34 and ahead of Brighton.

Though I can see Brighton getting at least 1 point from their remaining games be it against Cardiff tonight or against Ourselves or Wolves.
<ayo>

Yes, Brighton have a tough run-in with all those teams, except us of course, still having something to play for as the races for the title itself, Champions League qualification and a possible Europa League place for 7th position all going down to the wire.

I can see Brighton beating us (or drawing) and Cardiff, they won't get many points elsewhere but that would be enough for them. Wolves will get their act together again this when they play them.

Barcelona v Ajax would be a decent final.

Wow 2-0 Cardiff! Hughton could be fired after this, Allardyce parachuted in for their final few games...

Juve v Ajax is a brilliant game. Ajax probably the better side but Juve dangerous... 1-1 on the night, 2-2 on aggregate.
I had the first custom w***

Cardiff win. 7 points (8 with goal difference) above the drop. Brighton are in freefall mind
