    Up and coming managers (other than the Cowley brothers)

    Obviously everyone's very much au fait with Danny Cowley and his brother's recent achievements, but their cup run got me thinking about other young managers coming up through the leagues. Somebody who doesn't seem to have been talked about as much is Darrell Clarke at Bristol Rovers, who has...

    Sturrock has it sussed, well done!

    All this talk of being entertained makes me laugh. Look at what Sturrock was faced with when walking into the job. No money and a squad that had to go. Then ask yourself how the hell would you keep us up in the first season? Bankers to go down from the football league. Sturrock got some...

    Lionel Messi and Pedro Rodriguez sealed a dominant win for Barcelona in El Clasico, seemingly deciding the La Liga title race as Real were left out thought, out fought and out classed.

    Button to McLaren?

    The team that bring him a World Championship after years in the wilderness are suddenly not good enough as they are only paying 4 mill per season.
