    SIGNED Kristoffer Ajer (Celtic CB)

    Headline on one of the click bait sites says 'Newcastle can't afford to compete with Brentford for top target'. Well, I guess it is Ashley

    New New New New Handball Law

    Yes! You can take a free kick outside your penalty area or even a quick corner, whenever you're ready. But woe betide you if you try to have an attempt at goal from a free kick before the goalkeeper is ready or the wall is set up. Free kicks should be taken, anywhere on the pitch, when the...

    Rumour Frank Onyeka - FCM - DM (poss summer move?)

    I think it is interesting that BFC and FCM now have a joint recruitment department and this Nigerian club, FC Ebedei is the African academy for FCM. Does that mean they are working for the benefit of BFC now too?

    Bristol C Weds 13 Jan 7pm (on iFollow to STHers)

    The report in the i newspaper said he seemingly lost his footing. That was my impression too watching it live. There was no intent. Understandable that Hojbjerg a little cross but players will know intent and accident. A nasty wound but obviously accidental. The fact that Dean didn't award...

    The Arsenal Stadium Mystery

    The Odious Martin Samuel

    Bees sign for a system. Do other clubs? They might sign a good player but then don't play him to his strengths. You have to know what you are getting and what you are going to do with him; not sure all clubs do.
