A dicking of Port Vale by Accrington along with a drubbing of Pox by Wednesday would be a nice result this Friday. Relegation zone beckons  Smiley

From the *front* of the shirts only

... in three and a half years time!

And will continue to allow them on advertising hoardings, stadia and everything else around football.


This is a pretty minimal effort at generating some positive coverage really. Some might call it virtue signalling...

It was always going to be voluntary from the premier league, the Government white paper on gambling (which has been put back 4 times) is going to make gambling even stricter moving forward.

The horror stories you read about and the fines are from 3 or 4 years ago, the industry has tightened up massively and will have to even more so when the paper is eventually published.

Much of the problem is that gambling sponsorship seems to be the only show in town in many cases, there has been a bit of a fuss about the Derby this year as they were desperate to get a new sponsor who wasn't a gambling company but no one beyond gambling offered what they wanted so eventually it is being sponsored by a gambling company rather last minute.

If 3rd place Luton gain promotion to the Premier League this season then Pelly Ruddock-Mpanzu will be the first ever player to play for the same club in every division from Conference right up to the Premier League, all that in just 9 seasons.

A great achievement if it happens.

Didn't some of the Hull guys manage that, or did they never do the Conference? I'm sure they had 3-4 of their squad from L2 all the way up to the Premiership, Ian Ashbee and Boaz Myhill definitely.

Edit: Google tells me that was L2 up to Prem, and Ashbee was captain in all four divisions. Also Andy Dawson and Ryan France.

Leon Britton and Gary Monk did L2 to Prem with Swansea. Maybe a few more of that squad.

The early years were before my time but did any of the STFC players manage that? Fraser Digby...?

I think Digby came in the season after we were promoted from D4-D3?

Thinking back, the only one I can think of would be Calderwood, (if he hadn't fecked off the summer before the PL season started?)
