      Stephen Darby has signed a new contract with Bradford City and has been confirmed as the club captain for next season. Made up for him! Glad to see he's still enjoying a career in football since leaving Liverpool.

      Bit of a blast from the past.

      I've altered the title to encompass all seasons.


      So with 6 games to go, Blackpool have been relegated!

      The final 10 minutes of the brentford game were mental! I'm really hoping both Bournemouth and Brentford will go up

      Just watched the Wolves v Leeds game and I quite like the look of Nouha Dicko.   

      I reckon Brendan could do a lot for his game as he's got the basics he looks for in his attackers.  Strong, pacey, plays the channels or up front and score goals.  24 in 53 games isn't bad for a 22yr old in the Championship.

      Hmmm just heard Malky's been sacked from Wigan, wonder if we'll try to get Ojo and Sinclair back?

      I've watched a fair bit of Middlesborough this season and it's nice to see one of our old boys doing so well.  I'm not saying he'd be good enough for us but Danny Ayala has carved himself a very good career there and it's possible he'll be playing in the PL next season.

      There's another former LFC youngster who is fighting for promotion to the EPL, that is Zak Whitbread with Derby County. He's now 31, which made me feel pretty old :D

      Is it sacrilege to say the Championship has been the best or most entertaining league this season? It's ridiculously tight this season.

      Now I know why Di Canio was so pissed off at the Swindon board for selling Ritchie behind his back :D

      Derby gone down 1-0 at home to Reading early on.

      Brentford and Wolves are chasing them and they're both home to teams that are relegated already.

      I do wonder why we don't dwell into the Championship or div 1 more often. I'm sure there are a lot of gems there. You just need to look at Southampton as an example, how many of them started from league one?

      I don't particular watch Championship or lower unless we have a good player out on loan, but I'm sure there are some fantastic under 24 year old players that could take the leap and become established prem players. I wonder why we don't take a risk :(

      Steve McLaren showed loyalty by choosing to stay at Derby over moving to Newcastle and how is the favour returned? He could be getting sacked so that they can bring in Paul Clement. Courtesy of The Telegraph.


      "Real Madrid coach expected to take over after McClaren pays price for failure to achieve promotion to Premier League and for flirting with Newcastle"

      First of all, he rejected the job, he didn't 'flirt'. Secondly, they're kidding themselves if they think they have one of the top 2 squads in the league. There's a reason they had to bring Bent and Ince in on loan.

      Anybody watching the playoff final? Norwich just scored 2 goals in a matter of minutes. Middlesbrough are on the ropes for sure, but there's still so much time left.
