It's been a horrific week for Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club. After enjoying a fabulous season, everything has gone sour very quickly.
First up, we can't ignore the incident that marred their Play-Off game against Crystal Palace, who arrived in the away team dressing room to discover excrement on the floor.
I've been around the block and seen a lot of things but never have I witnessed or heard of something similar happening before. We had to contend with the odd cold shower, or a stewed, lukewarm cup of tea delivered at half-time but that was the measure of it. This was very different. It was quite frankly disgusting.
The club are doing their best to find the culprit, but no matter what happens the good name of the club has been damaged. They've won a lot of friends this season by playing some lovely football, and some of the fans I've spoken to say it's been the best they've ever seen at the club, but this has spoiled it a bit.
It certainly didn't help the team either. If Crystal Palace needed an excuse to be fired up for the game, they had it there and then.
It's also unusual to hear that Gus Poyet and his staff have been suspended for an unrelated incident, and that one of his players Vicente, has publicly criticised him.
There are stormy waters at the Amex Stadium.
On Bank Holiday Monday the season finally draws to a close with what's set to be an exciting Play-Off Final between Crystal Palace and Watford.
Their two previous meetings this season produced nine goals and it wouldn't surprise me at all to see a few more in this one because there is a lot of talent in the forward positions.
Tactically the most interesting aspect is how Palace centre-halves Danny Gabbidon and Damien Delaney cope with Watford's front two. Back in the day Gabbidon wasn't slow but he's not as quick as he once was, while Delaney is another who isn't renowned for his pace.
In the semi-final they weren't tested by a lot of speed in Brighton's attack, but Matej Vydra is very nippy indeed (and back in form) and he will always be on the look-out to get in behind them from Troy Deeney's flick-ons. It's a combination that's borne plenty of fruit this term.
I'm not predicting a tactical mismatch but Palace's two centre-backs will have to defend for their lives to keep those two at bay for 90 minutes. As a result of this potential problem, expect to see Ian Holloway's men defending a little deeper than normal.
For Palace it's a mammoth blow to lose Glenn Murray to a knee injury that's set to keep him out until 2014. Without him, much will depend on the pace and craft of Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie.
We've talked a lot about Zaha, but Bolasie has been just as impressive this season. He's slipped under the radar, but has contributed a great deal to the success of the team with his energy, skill and creativity.
I met Yannick Bolasie at Talksport recently and found him to be a really lively and likeable young guy. He's a fun character, but at 23 the former Plymouth Argyle and Bristol City man is also serious about his career and focussed on his game.
If Bolasie is on form, if Zaha turns up in the mood to turn it on, and if Kevin Phillips can make his usual impact from the bench, the Eagles definitely have a chance. But, for me, they are still underdogs.
Gianfranco Zola's men have been the better side over the course of the campaign, and after a stutter, their best players are back in great shape and that's important.
I'm a fan of Chelsea's impressive on-loan teenager Nathaniel Chalobah, who will look to produce drive through the midfield, and Troy Deeney is a real handful up front.
I just have a feeling that this could be Watford's day. And in Matej Vydra, the player of the season, they definitely have someone who could make the difference at Wembley. To stop him Palace are going to have to play exceptionally well.
