Nice to see that Graham Alexander has been given the chance to show what he can do at one of the "bigger" clubs.
So where has the great one gone ???? ... cant believe Chairman Swan has the offered the Iron job on a perminent basis to Daws .. big mistake n it will man a fight to stay in L1 next season not in the promotion mix ... we needed a new face with contacts to get in decent place ... the only contacts Daws has iis for Pizza Company n the Samaritans ..****.

Pleased to see the Yanks are taking over Adhocs Nigglys n Pan Pauls beloved Leeds .....expect some big changes there notably in the obesity of players and and locals having to learn another second language ... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wouldn't really fancy the 2 Sams at ER, either singular or in tandem. having said that we do need a change of manager if anything interesting is to happen next season.
We keep hearing the right noises from ER, but these are not being backed up by actions. Not yet anyway.

I suppose we have to say congratulations to Fulham on their promotion to PL.
Local: the last round of matches of leg 1 of Thai T2 are played today.
After their first win in 10, sees Udon up to 7th. This evening they are at home to Samut Sakhon. Another win needed if they are to stay in touch.
Nongbua Pitchaya's away win at Rayong last week saw them go back to the top. This evening they are at home to Kasetsart. Another 3 points please.

Good to see Fulham FC and Slavisa Jokanovic back in the Prem next season.
but with so much at stake its rare to see a thiller.
Villa were less than poor, and only showed any attacking intention in the last 20 mins after Fulham were down to 10 men. It would have been a travisty if the lottery (play offs) had denied Fulham (the 3rd best team in the league) their rightfull promotion due to one moment of madness by one of their players.

Nice to see someone with Thai League connections in the Prem next year as well :lol:

League Two Play off Final

Coventry City 3 Exeter City 1
Congratulations to Coventry, who return immediately to League one after dropping out last year.
It has been a slow, but steady decline for Coventry since they dropped out of the Premiership in 2001. They only just made the play offs by finishing in sixth spot - but that was their highest league finish in a division since 1971 & the promotion is their first in 51 years.
This is manager Mark Robins second attempt at the club & he seems to have put the basics back together there.
7 of their Academy players were in the finals' squad & they mustered nearly 40,000 fans at Wembley so things certainly look on the up.
Not such good views on the horizon for well beaten Exeter. Steve Perryman has retired as director of football & their current league longest serving manager, Paul Tisdale, is probably heading to the vacant MK Dons job.

Well done to Coventry.Lets hope its the start of the way back for them.

Not forgetting Sundays League 1 play off......Rotherham 2 Shrewsbury 1 (AET)......heartbreak for Shrewsbury who just missed out on automatic promotion,coming 3rd,and look likely to lose their manager,Paul Hurst,to Ipswich.
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

An absolute disaster ! :cry: I'm only just coming to terms with the effect Brexit has had on my Company Pension and now this......and this is far worse !
John has been a player,youth team coach,assistant manager and manager of the club who he joined in 1984 as a 19 year old.
You certainly cant blame him for wanting to take on the Shrewsbury job and I wish him all the very best.He's been an absolute legend at Macclesfield Town FC and the club owes him an unsurmountable debt of gratitude.
As for the club now,the future is very uncertain without him but good news for fans of Forest Green and Cheltenham as it probably means only one of them can be relegated now next season ! ;)

John Askey: Shrewsbury Town appoint Macclesfield Town boss as manager
John Askey had been manager of Macclesfield Town since April 2013
Shrewsbury Town have appointed John Askey, boss of National League champions Macclesfield, as manager on a three-year contract.
Askey takes over at the League One club just 48 hours after Paul Hurst departed to become Ipswich Town manager.
The 53-year-old had been in charge at Macclesfield since April 2013.
"The job at Macclesfield was done, I'd got them back into the League, and when this opportunity came up I couldn't turn it down," he told BBC Shropshire.
"Over the last few years I've been used to winning. As a player I was used to winning, and that's what I want to reproduce here."
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

Looks like Adhoc got his wish .......

LEEDS SACK HECKINGBOTTOM

Paul Heckingbottom has been sacked as Leeds head coach after less than four months in charge at Elland Road, according to Sky sources.

Reports had earlier linked former Argentina, Athletic Bilbao and Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa with the role and it is understood that Heckingbottom has now left the club.

The 40-year-old left Barnsley to take up the job in February and guided Leeds to a 13th-place finish in the Sky Bet Championship.

However, Heckingbottom guided Leeds to just four wins in 16 games after taking charge.

Heckingbottom succeeded Thomas Christiansen, who left the club on February 4.

Not sure how this one will work out. He did well early in his management career, but his later appointments not so good. Here's hoping.

No local games this week. Hostilities resume next weekend.
Udon's position is looking better after winning their last 2 games. Up to 6th. Nongbua Pitchaya continue their winning ways at the top.

Seems DM is not the only one with a low opinion of Scunnies chances going forward .....

Sky Sources understand Scunthorpe United's Hakeeb Adelakun has told the club he will not be renewing his contract and will leave this summer.

We understand Championship clubs Nottingham Forest, Hull City and Sunderland are all interested in signing the young winger.

Interesting times ahead at Elland Road next season. The appointment of Marcelo Bielsa is certainly going to put a very different look on things. Here's hoping. [-o< [-o<
