    Are you registering some kind of protest by using the “old” divsion names, or have I missed the decision that “The Championship” is too wanky even for Sky.

    In any event, I demand you place a £10 accumulator on solid predictions for all ups and downs accross the 3 leagues. It’ll make it even more interesting for you, and if you win you will probably be a billionaire.

    It’s not particularly a “protest”, as such, but I can’t be doing with all this constant name-changing. I can tolerate “The Premiership” rather than “The Premier League”, because it’s not too much different.

    However, I am loathe to give creedence to this idea that you can somehow improve the status of a competition by changing its name. By the same token, it’s the European Cup and the League Cup around here. If it was down to me, it would be the Alliance Premier League rather than the Conference too, but none of you would have the faintest idea what I was going on about.

    I fancy that Brighton could well be play-off challengers in League 1, simply because of the fact their entire set-up is to be a yo-yo team. Promotion or relegation, the squad basically stays the same.

    I may be biased.

    By the way, that picture: what a marvellous kit. Did you ever do your top ten kits?

    Do you know what? I didn’t. There’s a plan for next week.
