    New Elizabeth Line

    Think the OP anticipated some hostility to the Line to be fair. Yeah? Well I don't give a fcuk about half the threads on this MB. But guess what. In those instances I don't bother opening the thread and certainly don't comment.

    National League record expected to be broken again: Magpies v Mariners tonight.

    From what I saw from the highlights on line Grimsby were just about deserved winners. After the scrambled equaliser Grimsby had their wind in their sails in ET. The County CB should have been red carded near the end there for pulling back a player bearing down on goal but justice when they...

    Burnley Have To Stay Up - Or Else

    Some have relegation clauses in their contracts, others without simply get signed on on reduced terms. Barnes is past his best but will be ok for the Championship. I dont see him leaving. JRod, Brownhill, Taylor, Costelloe, Collins, Westwood, Peacock - Farrell will be the spine of their team.
