  1. According to the UEFA coefficient Scotland is the 19th best league in Europe (behind Serbia but ahead of Norway), while the Romanian league is ranked 30th best. So a pretty poor result. Celtic's problem is that their own league is so uncompetitive that they can't step it up when they get to Europe.
  2. I’ve gone for 7th-9th. I’d be disappointed if we didn’t make top half with all the talent we have but I’m worried that a lack of experience (only 3 players over 30) might see us fall short of the top 6.
  3. Doesn't sound good for poor old Bury. If they are kicked out, I'm guessing it is too late to reprieve Plymouth who finished 21st last year so they'll just play with 23 teams.
  4. It’s a shame that the Class of 92 didn’t take over Bury rather than getting yet another Greater Manchester team into the league. In other countries like Belgium the solution is mergers but I guess that would never happen here.
  5. Thanks for the positive response to my earlier comment. As LondonBristolian says we all meet new people all of the time and when you are gay you have to decide how open to be. Generally I am more likely to be open with women than men and have got quite good at talking about my partner indirectly without using “he”. As I said before, I think the reason why we need to see some footballers come out is to break down stereotypes. A few years back I was at a birthday party and there were some big burly builders though so I was cautious around them. Then one of them mentioned that they wer
  6. Sounds like very positive news. As a gay man myself, let myself explain why this is really important. I only came out when I was 29, and part of that was that I couldn’t identify with the stereotype of a limp-wrested promiscuous hairdresser/air steward. What I’ve learned is that gay men are really just a subset of men and that you don’t have to conform to some set identity. That’s why it would have really helped me if there had been more gay role models in sports. Hopefully one day we will get to the stage where sexuality becomes as boring as if you are left-handed or right-handed bu
  7. Surely flags aren't that expensive? Unless they are made from silk...
  8. Just to add - presumably lots of Cov fans will boycott again. Maybe they’ll be back at the Ricoh again in 2 years!
  9. Poor old Cov. You can put all the problems down to the awful owners. Unless the owners sell up, I think they’ll be stuck down with Rovers in the lower leagues
  10. It's worth pointing out that Aston Villa were one of the founder members of the league and that the initial league clubs were all from the North and Midlands. A lot of the southern clubs joined the league later e.g. Spurs in 1908
  11. I thought MK Dons were no longer entitled to the history of the old Wimbledon? They shouldn't be on the list
  12. West Brom would be best for city. If they go back up their remaining 3 years parachute payments are divvied up among the other championship clubs.
  13. I thought it would be a good time to revisit how the Championship sides are doing. Again starting at the bottom… 24th – Ipswich (27 points, 1 game less, max possible points 42) – Doomed. 4 wins all season tells its own story. While they have some fight they have completely lacked any quality. The last time Ipswich were in the 3rd tier was 1956-7 so it will be a real culture shock for them. 23rd – Bolton (32 points, 1 game less, max possible points 47) – Despite the odd surprise win it would be a major shock if Bolton didn’t go down. Their off the field problems continue and
  14. Need to slow the tempo and pass it around. Also need to bring on some subs.
  15. Does feel a little bit of a cop out but at least it sets a precedent and means that a similar punishment will have to be handed out in the future (here's looking at you Villa)
  16. Awful. Thank God we haven't got a game on the weekend. Need to go away and regroup before sheff u
  17. Poor first half but an important goal. Need to keep pushing forward and think we can get a second
  18. Sheff U as well. This worries me too. Are we a good side or are we a middling side who had a great run? It's not just about getting in the playoffs. If we want to win the playoffs, we need to show we can beat some of these sides in the regular season.
  19. How can Reading have spent so much and yet be doing so badly? Bear in mind, they finished 20th last season...
  20. Point gained. Stopped the rot when our rivals have lost and prevented Preston from closing the gap.
  21. I thought it would be a good time to look at how all the Championship sides are doing. Starting at the bottom… 24th – Ipswich (19 points, 1 game less) – Be careful what you wish for. Mick McCarthy finally left and the result has been 3 wins all season and -31 Goal difference. Their next 3 games are Stoke (H), Wigan (A), Reading (H)and they have to win at least 2 of those to have any chance. 23rd – Bolton (26 points, 1 game less) – If you think that they won 3 of their first 4 games, they have been pretty much as bad as Ipswich since (despite a surprise win at Brum in the wee
