Wasn't going from the Prem to Div 4 enough of a plummet for you?

I applaud the Hull fella - there are many clubs who could benefit from updating their nicknames.


Haven't Hull always been known as the Tigers? Seems wrong replacing AFC with it though.

A baby hedgehog is called a hoglet. Not relevant, but I think it's a nice word. Actually with our current squad, maybe the Swindon Hoglets is the way forward.

I think it's pretty relevant - after all, Shaun Hoglets is our local radio reporter.

Why is that what's wrong with football?

Think Sky are misreporting it anyway, I heard his agent died suddenly that's why he's missing this weekend's game.

Think his agent is also his brother?

Yeah, although evidently it's not his brother who has died, but another agent called Eric Manasse.

I'm sure I read somewhere (most likely on here) that signing on fees are not paid up front but in the form of loyalty payments over time, precisely to avoid that kind of thing?

Joe Kinnear thought he had spotted a special talent on a scouting trip to Birmingham – only to be told he was ­already a NEWCASTLE player, writes Alan Oliver in the Sunday People.

Toon director of football Kinnear raved to City chiefs about midfielder Shane Ferguson during the club’s Capital One Cup tie against Swansea in September. But when he asked about signing him, Brum bosses thought he was winding them up – because Ferguson is on loan at St Andrews from Newcastle until the end of the season.

Newcastle chiefs and manager Alan Pardew, who saw his side beat Chelsea 2-0 yesterday, were said not to be aware of Kinnear’s blunder.

A City source told Sunday People Sport: “Ferguson had a particularly good game that night and Joe Kinnear told one of our officials he was interested in signing him.

“At first our guy thought he was joking but then he realised Kinnear did not know Ferguson was already a Newcastle player.”

The 22-year-old, who can play in midfield or at full-back, signed a five-year contract with Newcastle in 2011 but spent three months on loan at Birmingham last season.
