FOOTBALL - NEWS RESULTS HEADER a– League Cup leaves heavyweights Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs. Also included are perennial lower league over achievers – Sheffield Utd, who have knocked over yet another big time rival on their march to another semi-final cup berth. Sheffield Utd have only lost 2 cup games of the 18 Nigel Clough has been in charge of.

 

– EPL has now reached the second longest period without a manager sacked. Although the vultures are circling with their eyes on Liverpool, Leicester, WBA, and Hull carcasses. Although, since it’s taken this long, it may end up being a surprise sacking. Our money’s on WBA. They are a long way behing the Football League’s three divisions with 27 changes amongst their 72 teams.

 

– Reports that leading a solid midfield EPL team to top 4 with the requested change in style will not be enough to earn Sam Allardyce a new contact at West Ham next year is puzzling to say the least. Quite what they expect to improve seems difficult to pinpoint.

 

– The transfer window is just around the corner, with the big names still looking for talent. Man Utd who seem to be on a mission to break spending record and Man City who need to replace their injured list of front men.

 

– Top 5 in Championship as close as ever. Just 2 points separates the top 5, 4 of the 5 could be top of the league after this weekend. Whilst at the bottom Wolves stopped a 5 game losing streak. Sacking their manager hasn’t helped Wigan, who are now the worst performed team in the last 6 games.

 

– Reading have booted Nigel Adkins after 10 points from their last 11 games. Whilst still 16th and 7 points from relegation, this time of year is when the Championship usually turns itself on its own head and the bottom clubs start winning. Best to be getting your dead manager bounce early and stay ahead of the drop. Ex WBA manager Steve Clarke has been  slotted in quickly

 

– Colchester taken over the worst losing streak in our featured 9 divisions, whilst Swindon are making a battle over the lead with Bristol City after it looked over a month ago whilst Bristol were unbeaten.

 

– Yeovil won a midweek FA Cup replay to earn themselves a home game v Manchester united in the FA Cup. The other lower league potential David v Goliath upset of Wimbledon at home to Liverpool was confirmed last week

 

– Hartlepool have hired Ronnie Moore to lead their charge from being the foot of the football league, pardon the pun. His previous gig at Tranmere ended in tears and betting slips.
