    Revolt at Watford. :facepalm: Having played utter ****e the last tree games, the manager wishes to keep the players another two weeks, which doesn't go well as some have booked holidays, which is worrying as we'd only been out of the playoff picture for 8 days . Players play **** against H'field on the last day, a few big players omitted due to revolt, players demand to only be kept behind 3 days, which was initial plan. Uncle Pozzo steps in, tells everyone to calm their ****, and everyone is kept back for a week. Disgraceful scenes, players seemingly now revoltin to get Beppe sacked.

    Stick with Beppe or get him out now, but any revolters should be sold immediately or sent out on loan to Luton or something. Perhaps this summer, we'll get it right.

    We're coming home, coming home, coming home, tell the Championship we're coming home!! :cool:

    The Premier League is rubbish apart from the money. Glad to be back in a proper football league away from the drama.

    1) Referees in the Premier League are God damn awful and only intent on gaining headlines themselves
    2) You have morons like Alan Shearer sticking their nose in and giving their opinion on your club
    3) Prawn sandwich crew turn up in abundance and the 'don't stand up and chant' idiots are out in force
    4) Stewards think they're police officers because the Premier League tell them to get their act together
    5) Ticket prices are higher just for the privilege of seeing Uruguayans and Spanish players roll on grass
    6) Less late night games during the week which I love as a fan - games under the flood lights
    7) A massive lack of competition other than subsets you can predict. You'll never get anything like what Burnley have done at Premier League level
    8) The thrill of knowing you could be in the play offs - great days out

    Premier League is crap fellas and the only good thing about it is the money your club gets. Glad to be relegated and back in a proper league where tackling is allowed and players aren't crying to the ref every 5 minutes.

    BRING ON DIRTY LEEDS!!!! :afraid:
    Ah, the other CCFC makes its return.

    What I don't miss about the Premiership is about 10000 replays of the same tackle. There is absolutely no point

    The total release list has been unveiled

    Adam Davies, Arron Jameson, Reda Johnson, Anthony Gardner, Miguel Llera, Martin Taylor, Jermaine Johnson and David Prutton.

    Some nice tasty wages freed up there for some bottom half championship survival players. Bit sad about cult hero Reda Johnson but he was injury prone and JJ has been here 7 years now. But hey times move on!

    Danny Mills - Former Leeds United, Manchester City and England defender
    Dario Gradi - Crewe Alexandra's director of football
    Glenn Hoddle - Former England manager
    Greg Clarke - Football League chairman

    Howard Wilkinson - League Managers' Association chairman
    Rio Ferdinand - Manchester United and former England defender
    Ritchie Humphreys - Professional Footballers' Association chairman
    Roger Burden - FA vice-chairman
    Roy Hodgson - England manager

    That's the FA panel that have come up with this idea. As to why Danny Mills and Rio Ferdinand are on the list I don't know. Get some people on there who actually know what they're talking about, which apparently is none of those listed.

    Dario Gradi is the only one who's opinion I would accept on a matter involving the Football League. Having been at Crewe for as long as he has, he is probably the only person who has seen how the leagues could be improved/ruined.

    Bloody B teams! The concept is such a poor idea and is a major downside of foreign football leagues!

    EDIT: I'll never forgive Howard Wilkinson if he passes some guff like this.

    Ritchie Humphreys has played in the Football League for 20 years. Somehow I think he knows a thing or two...

    But has only been around since the creation of the Premier League.

    At least Gradi offers a view point that transcends generations.

    And being Chairman of the PFA doesn't really count for much these days, does it?

    Predictions for Brighton v Derby tonight?

    Nerves are starting to take effect now but I still think we'll get past them. I'm going for a 1-1 tonight and a comfortable victory back home at the iPro.

    One of Cov's directors promising that they will pay ACL the £590k owed from the liquidation process in accordance with a Football League agreement. He knows full well that money isn't getting paid any time soon and the spineless League will cower at the first threat of legal action.

    Though I wouldn't be surprised to see them punish a club for a situation it is at least partly responsible for.

    Two other stupid points the FA wish to introduce...

    - "It also wants to develop "strategic loan partnerships" between clubs."

    Oh, so when Watford get loanees from one club, it's wrong, but it'll be fine so long as they're English players from English clubs, most of which are too arrogant and crap to make it to the top anyway.

    - "The review also calls for a ban on non-European Union players outside of the top flight"

    It's stupid, but it'll mean the Algerian Belkalem can't play for Watford any more, so hey ho, get it signed and in.
