  1. Sky Bet EFL 2017/18

    This is a @MDK-free zone --- So, a total crap-shoot as always in trying to pick who may be able to pull off a promotion campaign. Let's say Fulham, Leeds and Nottingham Forest. That would be rather good.
  2. Sky Bet EFL 2016/17

    This thread is suddenly going to be much busier this year . For whoever it was asking for it, here is a link to the overall retained lists in the Football League. Elsewhere, Dr. Xia has passed the fit-and-proper persons test and is the new Aston Villa owner.persons test and is the new owner of Aston Villa.
  3. The Football League has introduced new measures to increase the number of black and ethnic minority managers in a move that has been endorsed by Dan Rooney, the architect of the rule that bears his name in the US. The involvement of the Pittsburgh Steelers owner, who supported the plans in a video shown to the 72 clubs before they voted to back the proposals, is a coup for the Football League chairman, Greg Clarke, who came under fire last year when he rejected calls to introduce the Rooney rule and hit out at the “shrill voices” of “vested interests”. The Football League launched a review in October 2014 in a bid to improve diversity and encourage more black and ethnic minority candidates for coaching and management jobs. At present, there are just five across all 72 clubs. Under the new proposals it will be mandatory for Football League clubs to interview at least one Black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) candidate for all youth development roles that require at least a Uefa B licence. Clubs will also agree to adopt a voluntary recruitment code for first team managers under which they will agree to interview at a least one BAME candidate for any managerial or coaching position except in the specific instance of an individual being recruited from another club on terms agreed between the two parties. --- The Blackpool chairman, Karl Oyston, has admitted to five breaches of Football Association rules for a text message exchange in which he called a supporter of the club “a retard”. The FA first opened an inquiry into Oyston’s conversations with Stephen Smith last December and followed that up by bringing a charge against him in March. Oyston denied that charge one month later and challenged it as “unlawful”, a claim which the governing body last week announced was dismissed by an arbitral tribunal. Now, the FA has confirmed a hearing on the matter will take place next Tuesday. Oyston’s attempt to quash the FA’s charge centred on his argument that his exchange with Smith was a private one and should therefore be exempt from its rules. However, a tribunal rejected that notion and gave the FA the green light to continue with disciplinary proceedings against the 47-year-old. Oyston has been charged with using “abusive and/or insulting words”, with reference to disability, which amounts to five breaches of FA rule E3. It was that rule which the former Wigan chairman Dave Whelan breached when he made comments to the Guardian regarding Jewish people and the Jewish Telegraph regarding Chinese people as he attempted to defend the controversial appointment of Malky Mackay. Whelan’s punishment included a six-week ban from all football-related activity, a £50,000 fine and a mandatory education programme. Oyston’s run-in with Smith occurred after the chairman’s mobile number was posted on a social media website. The chairman later apologised for the content of the texts in a statement published on the club’s website and stressed he had regretted responding to personal abuse. --- Also, I now need a Football League team to support this year!
  4. Football League Thread 14/15

    I'm probably not going to post in this because I don't give a damn about it but I wanted to start one of the football topics this year. Apparently Blackburn are still there.
  5. Can Wigan, QPR, or Reading bounce back? Will Watford do as well as they did last season without their loanees now that the regulations have been tightened up? lol Leeds? Blackburn to win it all! Predicting these leagues is nigh on impossible but let's go for it anyway! Also, fairly certain that nPower have not renewed their title sponsorship deal this season.
  6. The Football League welcomes Blackburn, Bolton, Wolves, Fleetwood Town, and York. Blackburn, unfortunately, will continue to sink under Kean and the Venky's. I do hope that Bolton can bounce straight back though. I like Coyle. Not sure how Solbakken will do at Wolves. And War Cherries!! Promotion please! Plus another season of stability at Watford will do me nicely.
