After the latest round of fixtures it is apparent a few clubs have problems,
Southampton are in trouble Hughes must be favourite in the sack race,
Cardiff are short on quality and will struggle,
Ranieri will improve Fulham,
Newcastle will be OK as long as Benitez stays,
Palace cant score,
Neither can Man Utd,
City cant stop scoring,
Neither can Liverpool.
Just noticed that Champions league coverage has disappeared from Truevision screens.

The beautiful game   >:(   and the Barry Bennell / Dario Gradi saga . . .

''Gradi, then the first-team manager, had modified his own house to accommodate boys. Indeed, he needed a people carrier to ferry them all around and, although this is far from an easy subject to address, it has been made clear to the people leading this case why so much innuendo and suspicion has followed him throughout his professional life. “You’d always see him with his arm around a blond boy,” one former Crewe academy player has told the inquiry. “He used to prefer blond boys. He had dressing gowns with the [boys’] initials on. He had a [swimming] pool that was built so it was a certain level for young boys to play in.”
Gradi used to take boys on holidays
. . . .''

Wolves have fallen to pieces. - one point in the last 6 games. If this form continues they will be relegated!!

The reality is that they were not as good as folks thought after 8 games and they are not as bad as present form suggests.

My feeling is that the Ruben Neves speculation has upset the "Wolves are a pack" dressing room attitude. Neves has gone missing in recent matches. He should be sold for 65 million in January and the money invested in a couple of decent midfielders who want to play for the team and a striker.

My thoughts have always been that avoiding the drop this season should be the aim. This aim will be achieved.

More important than that TW is that I had Wolves down for a win ! I was expecting some sort of a bounce back with the quality Wolves have. Whilst it's almost a foregone who will win the EPL this year, there'll be some hi-jinks at the bottom ! GL

And now he's gone. Presumably because he failed to beat a distinctly average Man Utd team.

Earlier in this thread . . .

''The FA has drawn up proposals to deal with Brexit under which the allowance of non-homegrown players in the 25-man squads would be reduced from 17 to 13, and will pursue that course regardless.''

Is that enough ? Gareth Southgate with some pertinent comment :-

''The shortage of homegrown players in the Premier League, which hit record lows this past weekend, is “incredible” and “a conundrum we have to solve” according to the England manager, Gareth Southgate. In the 14th round of fixtures which took place this weekend only 54 players eligible to play for England started in the top flight. This was down from the previous week, which itself had been a record low.''
