Thursday Picture: Manchester United’s Old Guard

It’s been an unusual season, but one which nevertheless has had a familiar outcome. Manchester United continue to sweep all before them in the English game, and no referee or journalist seems able to stop them.

Poole Out? Maybe, Maybe Not, But The Fight For Wrexham Continues

It has been another strange, confusing week at Wrexham Football Club. The last time we reported on what has been going on there, it seemed as if a deal had been done and that the Wrexham Supporters Trust were at the point of losing out in their bid to take over the running of the…
