I can't see them staying up at all, but good for Milliband I guess. He's on a hot streak of resignations this week.

Leeds United have got a new manager! Brian McDermott.

So now, both Leeds' football team and their Rugby League team (Leeds Rhinos) are managed by someone called Brian McDermott.

Weird.

Looking at the standings in the Football League Championship, I'm shocked to see where Wolves and Blackburn are. With the parachute payments, you don't expect to see clubs get relegated to League One in their first season after relegation from the Premier League.

Yet that's a possibility for both clubs right now. It's more than a little surprising for me.

Looks like they're determined to break Portsmouth's record.

True, even Portsmouth, coming down from the Premier League in administration, lasted at least two seasons in the Championship before being relegated to League One. I'm not that familiar with Blackburn's and Wolves' current situation. Does anyone have a better idea how they got themselves in this situation?

Both clubs have been spectacularly mismanaged and should never have sacked Mick McCarthy or Sam Allardyce respectively.

Blackburn are owned by Venky's, who are charlatans of the highest order, and gave over too much power to an Agent who used them to sign a bunch of his crap players. They also sack managers like crazy now, after waiting way too long to keep Steve Kean in a job, they sacked him when he actually started doing OK, and since then have gone through Henning Berg and Michael Appleton in quick succession.

Wolves' owners chose to spend money on a new stand instead of buying players good enough to keep them in the Premier League, and since sacking McCarthy, have had 3 managers, Terry Connor, Stale Solbakken and Dean Saunders, all of whom have been a bit fucking shit.

Fergie responds to the Falcao to Utd rumors: “Do you honestly believe that? You amaze me you people.”

http://www.goal.com/en-gb/news/2900/fa- ... -hooligans

The FA Cup semi-final between Wigan and Millwall at Wembley has been tarnished by fighting and hooliganism by a small minority of fans from the London club.

The trouble had been brewing for much of the second half but intensified shortly after Latics attacker Callum McManaman handed Roberto Martinez’s side a two-goal lead with barely 10 minutes remaining in the match.

A small cluster of Millwall fans, a club notorious for its hooligan firms, began fighting between themselves, but the conflict quickly spread across the Millwall section of the stadium.

There were fists flying and bloodied faces in the crowd, with a general air of panic amongst the innocent bystanders trying to avoid the violence.

Police attempted to intervene and were met with vicious resistance, with riot helmets flung through the air - and the MET police have since confirmed that 10 arrests have been made.

The violence should be attributed to a small minority of fans, with many Millwall supporters escaping the fighting before applauding their defeated side’s efforts at the end of the match.

But the scenes, the most bloodied in the short history of the new Wembley stadium, will sour an otherwise engaging and fairly contested on-field match which saw Wigan progress to the final of the FA Cup.

Afterwards Millwall manager Kenny Jackett told ESPN: "I didn't see or hear anything at all. It's the first I've heard of it and I didn't see anything. Nothing has been brought to my attention.

"I've come out straight after the game with the disappointment of a loss. I'd need all of the facts and need some time before I form an opinion."

Meanwhile, Wigan chairman Dave Whelan expressed his bewilderment, saying on BBC Radio Five: "I can't understand why the Millwall fans would fight each other.

"I understand if they want to fall out with the visiting team, but why would they fall out amongst themselves? It just gives football a very, very poor reputation.

"We know Millwall are a tough club, their team's tough to play, the supporters are Millwall, Millwall, Millwall... straight through. But don't fight each other. I couldn't understand that."


It's Millwall, and I'm sure there are some good fans of that team. Having said that, it's also a team where this sort of thing happens all too often. :smt011
