    Coventry Leaving The Ricoh (Again)

    Statement made on Sunday by Coventry: upshot is that that the EFL vote on Wednesday has been cancelled after a groundshare was agreed (with Birmingham) as a safety net and presumably accepted by the EFL. However, CCFC are still hopeful of an agreement with Wasps...

    League 1 odds-2019/20

    Impossible to say, because no one has really made any signings. Doncaster, Sunderland and Tranmere not shown on that list yet. On the evidence of the play-offs, Tranmere have Everest to climb.

    Indy 500

    I was at school with a lad called Harvey. Same family, perhaps.

    Sunderland v Charlton

    A little over two years ago, we were four divisions apart...

    Sunderland v Charlton

    Good game, shows what is required at the top end of League One. Huge contrast in standard to yesterday's game - Tranmere and Newport were a million miles away. Standard allocation for away fans is 3,000 at the SOL.

    FA Cup free to air from 2021

    If they multiplied FA Cup prize money to a level comparative with the Premier League, the competition would suddenly be important again. Funny, that. I haven't checked this, but I wonder what the bids for the FA Cup rights were, relative to those offered for the Premier League?

    FA Cup free to air from 2021

    He has already stated his views on this, and has nailed his true colours to a very public mast on multiple occasions. He repeatedly lies about the success of Spanish B teams, their attendances and everything else, hoping that we are none the wiser. Some of us are.

    FA Cup free to air from 2021

    Sorry for this Norfolk, please believe this is nothing personal. a) Watford were terrible and were hopelessly, completely and embarrassingly outclassed in every way. Most glaringly, they were outclassed in terms of budget. b) No, they were absolutely terrible comparatively and conceded six...

    FA Cup free to air from 2021

    That is probably it, and the fact that I was in my formative years could be significant too. Every game was a big game in my childhood, I thought the players were fantastic, George Best was my childhood hero, and it just isn't the same now. I am talking rubbish, of course. It isn't the same...

    Score Predictions & Match Thread: Newport County v Tranmere Rovers

    There were 45 shots in the Mansfield v Newport second leg without a goal; there have been 18 so far today, meaning there have been 63 shots in Newport's last game and a half without a goal. Amazing.

    Score Predictions & Match Thread: Newport County v Tranmere Rovers

    Incidentally, does anyone remember playing Benfica B in Portugal prior to the start of the 2017-18 season? Jordan Maguire-Who put us ahead early on with a false dawn cracker before a 17-year-old striker scored a hat-trick to win the game 3-1. That striker was called Joao Felix, and he has just...

    Gateshead

    It makes no sense at all. So what would happen if Gateshead simply refused to pay it (or were unable to, which is highly likely)? They can hardly kick them out of the league, they have already done that. Having said that, it does highlight the futility of trying to run a professional football...
