West Ham finished three points off the top spot and one from automatic promotion, but take on Blackpool – who finished fifth with 11 points fewer – in tomorrow’s playoff final, in a game estimated to be worth £90m to the winners…

Managers like to talk about momentum being a prerequisite to promotion. West Ham had it – they were second in early March, only one point behind the leaders, but drew five in succession – and lost it.

By the time Charlie Adam’s Carling Cup final penalty had landed in a Neasden garden, Cardiff’s players were halfway down the M4, bitterly disappointed after falling just short of pulling off a famous victory over Liverpool.

Birmingham City have changed divisions more times than any other club in English football, with 12 relegations and 12 promotions.
