25 Years Later…

Blackburn - jasonvilla4ever


Blackpool - Glenn T


Bolton - KingJoe


Brighton - BOVIS86

The FA Trophy

THE END

So there you have it folks, on points Blackburn proved to be the most successful team from the 2012/13 Championship over 5 seasons whereas Watford, the official out and out winners only came 7th. Football really is a funny old game isn't.

Thank to everyone who followed the 'story' and a special thanks to those who commented.
Both jasonvilla4ever and JL00 will be immortalised in my signature as promised (keep an eye out for that you lucky people you).

I have another idea for something similar coming soon but in the meantime please feel free to leave feedback with ideas/suggestions for improvements to this format as I would love to make it a more interactive project next time.
All the way down to the Blue Square Premier it looks like :(
Hahahaha love it.

Blackpool are so full of shit, and it seems they have never recovered from their relegation to the League One. I am also third from last in the rankings.

Nevertheless, it has been an amazing and creative story to follow. I look forward to your future projects.

Thanks mate :)

I've enjoyed putting this together... i have my next one lined up but i figured i'd take a lil break while FMSGT, Hotseat and Family play themselves out.

Also gives me a chance to take on board any feedback from this project. I am going to give preferential admission to people i know to be most active on the site (thats right, i'm a comments whore!).

The family hasn't had the desired following i was hoping for.
