I do wonder if the scandal involving his son had anything to do with it? That did not speak very well of the culture that exists amongst the players.


It wouldn't have helped, but I suppose it could have had just as much to do with Pearson's own antics over the last year or so. Leicester's turnaround towards the end of last season was quite remarkable, though. Despite his rough edges (to put it politely), I can't see him staying unemployed for long.

 

As for his replacement at the Walkers, Steve Bruce comes highly recommended. By Steve Bruce.

My favourite club is Carlisle United who currently sit in England's fourth tier (League Two) of Football.  They have a rather unique place in English Football history, they were the first club (and may be the only club) to have been relegated out of the Football League (top 4 tiers), to have also spent at least a week in first position in the top flight.  Between 1950 and 1974 they worked they way up the English Pyramid from Division 4 to lead Division 1 early in the 1974-75 season.  Then from 1975 to 2004 they worked their way down the English Pyramid, eventually being relegated to the Conference in 2004.

Benteke looks to be off to Liverpool.

Not sure if that is the best possible destination for his career.

Certainly not with the expectations that will accompany that price tag.

I'd like to state my delight at extending my contract with my own fantasy team for another season. I am a loyal person and committing my future will hopefully show everybody what type of guy I am. I feel like this is me - I love the club, I love being here and I want to put 100% into everything I do here. This is my club and I want to be here. That's why I am committing my future. Hopefully it will give everyone a bit of a lift and show the fans that we are looking to do big things here and bring excitement back to the club. We want to get through this season, do well and I feel the up-and-coming years will be big. There was no way I was going to bail out. I am here for the long run. The fans have been the same. I am sure they will stick with us, help us get through this season and then looking into the future, it looks promising to me.

Contrary to the rumours, I'll be staying on in this fantastic fantasy league.

I don't think Delph's playing time will take as much of a hit as people think, largely because Fernando is a bit on the rubbish side. He has done the impossible though in revealing himself as the greediest player at a club with Raheem Sterling on its books.
