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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry again, Adam.

Eat me.

I'm posting in here anyway because we are in League Three.

This could go in the transfer news, but Stockdale has gone to Birmingham. A good signing for free.

Hang on, I thought the new season began on or around 22 June?

You are joking aren't you. EFL fixtures aren't out for another week and you missed out the word 'Thread' again. This is a travesty.

Vote @RPS!

I hope Forest Green are immediately relegated. Grimsby can do whatever they like, as long as they're not relegated alongside Forest Green.

It's taken us long enough to get back to the Championship, staying there would be nice.

Former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has left Swindon following their relegation to the bottom tier of the English Football League.

Sherwood was appointed director of football at the County Ground last November, brought in by owner Lee Power, a long-standing personal friend.

Asked about 48-year-old Sherwood, Power said: "Tim's gone." And his response was similar regarding the club's director of football role, saying: "That's gone."

:lol: bellend

Hoping Stevenage can build on last year and nudge into the play-offs but I'll be happy again with a safe campaign without too many relegation scares. Easy to forget how much we were punching above our weight with a run on the League One playoffs a few years back and just hope to keep the league status going.

Oh dear Sunderland.

He's staying even though a lot of their best players seem to be on the way out. Kevin Phillips it is then for the Mackems?

Taking it with a huge pinch of salt but The Telegraph have said that our takeover talks with that German Consortium are at an advanced stage. Apparently McInnes has turned down the job over concerns the potential new owners would want their own man at the helm.

So we've got a new gaffer, had unprecedented success with APOEL Niccasia so I'll give him a chance. Would have preferred someone more reputable but at least it isn't Pearson or Stam.

I don't believe in an afterlife or anything, but, seeing the fixture list this morning and the first ever league clash between my team and my brother's team in our memory falling on my dad's birthday did make me pause and wonder.

Fixtures are out, all we need now is a new owner a new manager and 11 new players.

At home first game, last game and Boxing Day, terrific. Scunny at home on Leger weekend and our first league trip to the new home of Rotherham is in February.

First away game is to Blackburn, can't wait for that. Very happy with our fixtures to be honest!

I look forward to Brisbane Road being renamed The Dunkin' Donuts Dome. Seriously, though, I hope this is a proper turnaround.

      Full fixtures for all three divisions of the EFL will be announced Thursday, 21st June. But, that gives us a whole week to try and attempt to somewhat predict the clusterfuck that is the Championship (and League's One and Two, of course)!
      I have no idea what is going to happen at Villa - but for their sake's I hope they somehow manage to pull their shit together and get back to the Premier League, where they should be. Forest seem to be trying to do a Wolves this season, so it's also promotion or bust for them as well it seems. I'm also going to predict Ipswich having a sneaky good season under Paul Hurst as well.

      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.

      The announcement of the revamped tournament sort of flew under the radar as in typical FA incompetent fashion, they announced it on the opening day of Euro 2016.
      The tournament has now been restructured to feature 64 teams, the 48 teams from League One and Two and 16 U21 teams from teams with Category One academies, which are:
      Arsenal Chelsea Everton Leicester Liverpool Man City Middlesborough Newcastle Southampton Stoke City Sunderland Swansea Spurs WBA West Ham TBC (since Man Utd declined to participate) These teams will have to play six U21 players in their teams throughout the tournament.
      Group Stage rules
      Sixteen groups of 4 teams will be organised on a regionalised basis. All groups will include one invited club and at least one club from each of Leagues One and Two. All clubs will play each other once, either home or away. Invited clubs will play one home game at the club's first team stadium. Clubs will be awarded 3 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. In the event of a drawn game (after 90 minutes), a penalty shootout will be held with the winning team earning an additional point. The top two teams will progress to the Knockout Stage. I've been saying for years that the League Cup should have been U21 or U23 for PL teams for years, so I'm quite interested to see how this format works out and whether it opens up any opportunities for academy players to force their way into first team contention.
