Harvey Barnes lit up a sold-out stadium with a special goal to mark his first Albion appearance but his afternoon was ruined by Josh Magennis and Yanic Wildschut, who gave Phil Parkinson’s men a dramatic late victory less than a month after their players briefly downed tools. … [Read more...] about Championship match reports: West Brom stunned at home, Swansea leave it late and Middlesbrough held
Balance transfer how does it work
Far away from the riches and glamour of the English Premier League is a world of rivalry, plastic pitches, dead squirrels being dropped from the sky by seagulls and - honestly - some genuinely entertaining football. The Scottish Premiership is gaining something of a cult following up in its native land and with the Hollywood addition of Steven Gerrard as Rangers manager, has grabbed some attention from far reaching corners. Even... England. Brendan Rodgers' Celtic should dominate all before them but the league isn't as predictable as all that. There are three (and maybe four) teams competing for second place with everybody else capable of finishing as high as third or as low as relegated. This league is consistently unpredictable - but always fun. So, can anyone really battle Celtic to the end? Will Stevie G work some magic at Ibrox? Will Aberdeen continue their tradition of failing to turn up in the big games? It's the SPFL! What a place. Aberdeen Ex-West Brom captain Derek … [Read more...] about SPFL preview: Steven Gerrard’s new-look Rangers, resurgent Aberdeen and ambitious Hibs – is it Celtic’s to lose?
The football is nearly back. Thank the heavens, praise the many gods - those four or five days really dragged on. But now it's time for Premier League action and - sooner than usual - the end of the transfer window. Clubs only have until the 9th of August to get all their business done this season and rather a few are a little short of where they'd like to be. The top six is a mini-league of its own in the money-rich world of England's elite but who's used that wealth to recruit well? Which clubs have made big changes? Of that top six, who looks best ahead of the new season? Arsenal What they needed to address Lack of bite, determination and defensive discipline. Proven winners. Players who fit into Arsenal’s (now) traditional football aesthetic but who are a little different from what’s already available.

0 Have your say Sheffield Wednesday must tread carefully in the transfer market this summer to ensure they comply with Financial Fair Play regulations. Defender Jack Hunt has left and other player exits are more likely than new signings as the Owls curb their outlay after three seasons of heavy spending on recruitment. But what exactly are the rules and how do they affect what owner Dejphon Chansiri does before the new Championship season kicks off in August? The UEFA Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulationsThey were introduced in 2011 to prevent professional football clubs getting into financial trouble by spending much more than they earn in the pursuit of success. Action can be taken against clubs who exceed their limitation.How is it worked out?A club’s outgoings (transfers, wages etcetera) are weighed up against income (gate receipts, TV revenue, advertising, merchandising, player sales etc). Many clubs use a procedure called ‘amortisation’ to … [Read more...] about Sheffield Wednesday: A simple guide to Financial Fair Play and what it means for the Owls

0 Have your say There was one box that Jack Ross didn’t tick. When Sunderland’s new regime began their search for Chris Coleman’s replacement, they had in mind a manager with a strong record in League One. At that stage, gambling on a rookie seemed unlikely.Even as recently as Monday, Stewart Donald told the assembled media that while not essential, a track record of success in the lower leagues was preferential.Donald, though, was privately beginning to believe that the St Mirren boss was the outstanding candidate for the role. References from north of the border were overwhelmingly strong, and while Ross may not have started the process as number one choice, he quickly became it.It was the same for Ross, who began the week seemingly destined for Ipswich.Sunderland’s interest in Chris Wilder was well known and strong. It was Wilder whose direct, uncompromising style had begun Oxford United’s rise, a story close to the heart of the new regime, … [Read more...] about Jack Ross: The inside story on how and why he became Sunderland’s ideal choice for the years ahead

Commission's findings still have the college basketball coaching community disputing the most important issues facing the sport by Matt Norlander @MattNorlander 2m ago • 11 min read The NCAA-appointed Commission on College Basketball made public on Wednesday its proposals that posit a positive path toward reshaping the sport. But college basketball coaches are of varying minds on the commission's findings and suggestions. Some see a long-awaited opening for fundamental, operational improvement in college basketball; others see opportunities missed, with more left on the table than taken off. Then there are some who don't much care about any of it. There is intrigue, but apparently also apathy. "I don't know how others feel, but right or wrong this report is one of the very last things on my mind," one high-major coach told CBS Sports. "Too much other important stuff with recruiting and semester ending occupying my thoughts."Other … [Read more...] about Coaches split on how much impact can truly be made by the Commission on College Basketball’s proposals
Matthew Lewis/Getty Images Manchester United have reportedly put Harry Maguire at the top of their list of summer transfer targets, even though Leicester City have ruled out selling the centre-back. A report from Dave Armitage of the Daily Star has said United, along with Premier League rivals Manchester City, are ready to compete for the England international defender who is rated at £50 million. Armitage also noted how north London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur "are believed to have had £40m enquiries knocked back in the January transfer window." However, Leicester manager Claude Puel has sought to quiet the rumours by denying Maguire will be available, per BBC Sport: "He is a valuable player for us. It is just speculation. He came into Leicester and played and developed and he needs to continue to improve. "He's a young player with fantastic attributes, an international player, and it is a good thing to have this player at Leicester. He is an … [Read more...] about Manchester United Transfer News: Leicester City Rule out Harry Maguire Sale
