Lost £20m+ last year (on £23m turnover) and £9m+ the year before, how is football sustainable for Championship clubs?

 3rd round cup Saturday, and 5 games kicking off at 3:00.  There are I think 32 ties. When you get that sort of thing happening it makes not being in it better. I mean who'd fancy a 12:30 KO today as 7 ties are having to do. Fuck off.

Been losing money for about 25 years haven't they?! Ever since and just before Premiership relegation back in the early days.

Blackpool could be on the verge of administation and a 12 point deduction.

Sky Sports have stopped betting on relegation.

Not good for them but if it means rid of the Oystens then thats goota be good for the club.

It's a grand old team to play for, It's a grand old team to see, And if you know your history, It's enough to make your heart go whoa-oh, We don't care what the other teams say, What the hell do we care, For we only know that there's gonna be a show, And the Swindon Town will be there....

I hope they pull through. We don't want another team in the mix at the bottom taking Oxford's relegation spot.

After investing £9m in Notts County, owner Alan Hardy has put the club up for sale after ‘inadvertently’ tweeting a picture of his knob on Twitter. His account uses the handle #bigalan.

Staying local - rivals Forest have owners who, allegedly, are being investigated for drug trafficking.

Football does attract some ‘characters’. Good to see the FA’s fit and proper person test is proving so successful.

Is it really a surprise Sol? He is a dick but some of the abuse thrown at him over the years is just peculiar.

Right on horlock, what exactly did he expect?

Quote from: Sol Campbell
"I don't understand why there is animosity towards a manager who has got nothing to do with their club other than being the opposition,"

Has Sol experienced memory loss? By the same logic why would fans have animosity towards a player who has got nothing to do with their club other than being the opposition?

Saw something about him receiving homophobic abuse the other day. He's married. But I do remember as a kid hearing "Campbells got Seaman up his arse" sung.
