Not for me to say. Heard it from a reliable Hellenic League source though.


Martin (Chairman) is a long-time family friend. Do go on?


There are just questions over where the money is coming from. Second hand information that I cannot verify. Very quick turnaround at the club though eh, almost as if someone had to get rid of a load of cash quickly.

Nothing at all suss to be honest with you. Have you looked into the new ownership? It's nothing ground breaking, but will hopefully take the club forward and ultimately be good for the Town (City...)

Hull don’t look good at all. Farting around at the back and defending poorly.

2nd and 3rd goals were 2017/18 Reading-esque defending

Good news, we're slowly but surely climbing the league table.

Not looked into it at all, it was a conversation with the ownership of another club around that level. It is unfounded information which is why it would be wrong to repeat it word for word.

Not sure it's much better hinting at it then tbh - but ok.

I think Rotherham, Hull and Bolton will struggle, even though the latter won at the weekend.

Its an opportunity to test ourselves. I actually think we’ll get something out of it.

Have a feeling Sheff Utd may well really struggle this season. Just don’t think they are very good

Forest will certainly be tough, may sneak a point but not that hopeful

Nah, not many people have tipped WBA to do well from what I’ve seen and and see why. Gayle should be a Good signing for them though. £20m for Rodriguez is a comical valuation

Almost a great goal there from the Forest lad

I thought they’d do quite well. They always seem to bounce back first time and on paper they look to have a really good championship squad.

Their first two results/performances have surprised me a bit.

EDIT: Hal Robson-Kanu just came on, scratch that, relegate them now.
