    As a Luton fan I can understand that, the FA and FL still fail to support lower league clubs. However, it's also not fair that Luton were deducted 30 points in a season and Pompey and Sky Blues only 10 in one season.

    Our administration was quite different in that it was not down to the club being in financial difficulty but actually an attempt by the owners to hold onto the club (which succeeded).

    Watford now sign Juan Carlos Paredes, Ecuadorian right-back, on a 5-year deal... Some very good transfer business done so far by the club!

    Blackpool team today: Trialist, Waddington, Trialist, Perkins, McMahon (C), Dunne, Zenjov, Trialist, Trialist, Grant, Trialist.

    Apparently they have 8 registered players and their manager is about to resign already, 3 weeks before the season starts. What the hell? Makes the likes of Coventry, Leeds & Portsmouth seem well run.

    Its not right, surely there's no way the FL can allow this. Completely unfair, exploitig a serious loophole. Ruining modern football.

    Either way, if Blackpool stay up it'll be a miracle. They were crap last year with a full squad. The Oystons are awful owners, and the only amusing part is the flak Karl Oyston's teenage son gets on Twitter because of his dad.

    I'm a Gateshead fan new to the forums. Had a great season under Gary Mills last year, ending at Wembley but couldn't beat Cambridge to get promotion to the League. Looking good this year so far, brought back Jon Shaw who scored 35 goals in 50 games in 11/12 for us, JJ O'Donnell from Luton who featured heavily in the promotion campaign, as well as big target man Michael Rankine, Lewis Guy, Tom Allan, Alex Rodman and Andrai Jones. We're a mad bunch, not the biggest crowds but we're trying really hard to boost the numbers.

    That the same Gary Mills who was a coach at Cov over a decade ago? Small world.

    Yeah, that's the one. Did a great job at York in 2012 winning the Conference play-off final and FA Trophy in the same week, and is doing miracles here.

    All I know about the club is from its YouTube match videos with people shouting Heed Army. Great chant.

    I believe I said that wrong. I in no way find kids getting abuse hilarious, but he doesn't seem a nice chap himself and brings it upon himself with some of the things he says towards any Blackpool fans who complain about the Oystons.

    It's the same with anyone attached to SISU so I understand why but at the end of the day he probably thinks he's sticking up for his family. Social media seems to be best avoided in the football world anyway, seems we're just getting more stories like this.

    Leicester have a bid of £6.5m rejected for Troy Deeney, Watford have an enquiry rejected for Leicester's Andy King. Interesting, £6.5m is a joke though when you look at other transfers this summer...
