Pulisic for Chelsea is very reminiscent of Juninho. Watching him play brings back memories.

Based on what I've read, the EFL might have some difficulty in establishing that their fit and proper person test has been applied properly in this case or is even fit for purpose at all.  The EFL, of course, will do everything in their power to not be blamed for anything or be held accountable for anything because unfortunately that's their mentality - all of the power but none of the responsibility.  And another set of fans gets shafted.

This also comes into my thinking, I don't see the EFL overturning a decision when it fundamentally comes down to their test failing. If they do overturn their decision, they have to acknowledge the test failed. Wigan getting relegated doesn't seem to me as big a story as Bury going out of business. There's the time-frame of entering administration with Wigan which is mad for sure but I'm not sure this is directly heading towards being dissolved, however much relegation right now could put any club in serious trouble.

It's a bigger story if it turns out it's all to win a bet somewhere.  Think about it, we're not talking about match fixing, we're talking about season fixing or competition fixing.  Bury going out of business was a disgrace and the EFL were at least partly responsible, even if they wash their hands of it all though of course.

Sounds like Chris Hughton is also a strong possibility.

Whoever it is, I hope they take over after Saturday.

The Daily Mail has reported “Burnley are unlikely to recall record signing Ben Gibson from exile despite only having two fit centre backs”.

I think the wording is interesting that he is in exile as opposed to AWOL or refusing to be involved etc.

I'm not sure I'd read too much into the wording used by the Daily Mail!  I suspect that there is fault on both sides - just like there was with us and Braithwaite.

TBH Daily Mail sport is usually pretty good & shouldn't necessarily be tarnished with the same brush as the rest of the DM.

Charlton beating Brentford.

Luton beating Barnsley.

Fair play to Charlton.  I thought they looked to be the worst team we've played against this season.

Some great goals in this Watford v Norwich game! I'm loving having some premier league games on tighta*** TV.

They'll be almost out of reach soon.

    • Really bad head injury for Wolves
    • I think the Parkinson sacking may bite the Makems in the backside. I assume there is more to the story than just the on field performances, if not they may just have sealed their long term fate in League One for a very long time.
    • Whoever gets it has a job on their hands. Used to be known for bringing local kids through and according to relatives most of the promising kids from the area choose us over them now
    • my late wife met him at a fan convention in Harrogate some years back and she said he came across as a very straightforward guy, spent a considerable time chatting to her and her friend and even got a couple of the other guests (Kenny Baker and Jeremy Bulloch, I think) to do the same. Viewed himself as an ordinary person who'd been lucky in life and was just as happy to send himself up as play serious roles, but took the Green Cross Code very seriously to the extent that he was prouder of that than his role in Star Wars... One of his favourite sketches      
    • I think Bettinelli is a good organiser and engages with his defence. His Goalkeeping ability is average at this level like a lot of other Keepers. I think we have to remember that if he was great he wouldn't be here. When Shay Given came on loan just watching him was a joy and that was including the warm ups where he was aware of the kids walking behind the goal waving flags when he used to tell the players to stop firing practice shots at him in case it hit one of the little ones. Small things but they matter and tell a lot about the man. He always made marks in the turf (probably much to the annoyance of the Groundsmen) so he knew his positioning in the heat of the action and was always exercising to keep warm and alert. Another Keeper I liked was Paul Smith, a comparative nobody in the history of Goalkeeping but I have positive memories of him always giving his best during his short tenure here. Likewise I have good memories of Danny Coyne. I remember when Mark Schwarzer first arrived he was a good Keeper but his kicking was terrible, he struggled to reach the half way line. After the first Summer break something had improved (presumably coaching and practice) immeasurably as the length of his kicks were half as much again after that.   Willie Whigham was a real character, Jim Platt possibly my favourite whilst Steve Pears was probably one of the best in living memory. Keepers, they come and go, some leave positive memories and some like Valdes and Guzan are best forgotten about.
