    EFL Championship 2017/18 - All Welcome!

    Gary Rowett leaves Derby for Stoke. Not sure what to make of that. Four clubs in four years now.

    Saw these guys a few years back as Robin Davey is one part of the best British blues band of the last 20 years - The Hoax. Anyway, they split, he moved to LA and formed Well Hung Heart. Much more punky than the Hoax but you can still hear those blues hooks. New single and the video features their good friend Noodles from the Offspring. And I love this one.

    Isn't it going to be bloody tough for him to even get out from Wengers shadow? You never want to be The Guy Who Follows The Guy because your achievements are always going to be measured against your predecessor. It is what did for Moyes at Man Utd and Avram Grant at Chelsea (who had the same win percentage as Mourinho). Having said that, he is as good a choice as any. His Sevilla side were great to watch.

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    I suspect the problem with making Rama for the big screen is the ending. I remember picking that book up and absolutely blasting through it as I really needed to know what happened next and what is was all about.

    And, I'm sorry, but you really can't help but warm to them when their Twitter feed is just gold.

    NHL discussion thread

    I don't know what it says about the NHL but the thing is that they really haven't looked like a team that is riding its luck either. Sometimes your goalie can backstop you through a round or two (Giguere, Thomas) but Fleury has had the occasional off (K)night but it hasn't affected them. Winning the Cup as an expansion team would be terribly strange (Leicester with knobs on!) but there is no argument that they don't deserve to be in the Final based on the quality of their play.

    Clarets don’t have to sell but any player is available for the right price. The price for Tarkowski would be over £30m - he’s under a long contract and unlike Keane last year, we’re looking a little thin at centre back. I heard Liverpool might be after Pope rather than Butland. He or Heaton might be available as there is no way Burnley can keep two England goalkeepers in their squad happy. Much as I love Ings he falls foul of my “never go back” rule.

    Worth pointing out as I don’t think it was mentioned here that Jim White was shocked, shocked I tell you, that the fixtures are manipulated to keep the Big Clubs apart at the start of the season at the request of the TV companies. That is Jim White of Sky Sports.

    Clarets were paid for 10 live games but were only shown 7 times. We got paid £5m to not be on telly. (Insert obvious comment here.)

    This is what happens when you chuck Champions League teams into the Europa League though. Atletico were in the final two years ago and the semi-finals last year.

    EFL Championship 2017/18 - All Welcome!

    I think it should be a good final - Fulham are swashbuckling but Villa have a solid set of players who could soak it all up. I hope Fulham win - nothing against Villa, who I have a bit of a soft spot for, just that if they do go up I don't think I can handle six months of Brave John Terry Returning To Stamford Bridge narrative without going postal with an axe.

    Agreed. I haven't seen much of Loftus-Cheek, but if Southgate says he is going on form then I believe he has had a good enough season. That is a tremendously lightweight midfield, to which Jack Cork would have been an interesting holding option. Also disappointed that Danny Welbeck is there - hell, if we are picking on form until last Sunday Ashley Barnes should be there in the "non-playing fifth forward" role. But then I'm biased against Welbeck, who I don't think would have ever had an England career had he not shuttled around the Big Clubs. Aside from that, nothing to really complain about.

    Allardyce and Moyes gone.

    Premier League managerial changes 2017/18 season. De Boer Koeman Pulis Pardew Bilic Allardyce Hughes Silva Wenger Mazzari Shakespeare Clement Pellegrino Probables Moyes Conte Puel Possibles Hughes Benitez Lambert Including the probables, that is 16 changes. Enough to make Serie A look at it and go "hang on lads, that's a bit much".

    That was the other one that I was thinking of. Oh. And Conte.
