Going Up? Staying Down?

If you disregard the top of the Premiership, which has been almost completely predictable for the whole of the season, this has been a brilliant season, with issues at the top and bottom of more or less every league you can think of which most likely won’t be resolved until the very last minute of…

Down In The Dumps

Just a couple of weeks to go of the domestic season now, and it’s all very exciting in all five divisions. I’m going to skip over the Premiership for now (because, let’s face it, you’re hardly starved for Premiership news, are you?), and have a quick look at what’s going on at the bottom of…

If You Think That Things Are Bad Now…

I’ve pointed out on here before that Premiership managers seem to be getting more and more opinionated on matters that, frankly, don’t concern them.
