They've got houses to buy up though.

 

Some of the Class of 92 own Salford City.

They appear to throwing the cash about, quite a few lads from last season have been let go and I believe they've just signed Jason Jarrett, ex Wigan Athletic amongst others, was a top earner at Chester last season in the Conference so will no doubt be a very very expensive Evo Stick player!

Looking forward to a power struggle between FC United of Manchester and Salford City soon.

Again though - not many clubs have definitely gone.  Even our friends Manchester still exist even if they have to freefall for a bit to find their new, broke level.

There is plenty of money going.  The sport has never been so prosperous.  It is as if it has won the lottery and has spent all the money on jaffa cakes.

Be interesting to see how it pans out!

 

Wigan Robin Park play Salford pre season so looking forward to seeing what "stars" they field in that fixture!

Rugby union clubs do not spend money on jaffa cakes.  They spend it on salted dark chocolate, citrus-infused pastries that are washed down with dessert wine and the tears of peasants.

It's all down to a bunch of blokes who if they were poor would be seriously considered for mental health care because of their delusions. I know one level 7 club whose owner has thrown money at the club and told the coaching staff that he expects to see them in the Championship (level 2) in no more than 6 or 7 seasons. This despite me knowing one level 5 club that had a £1.3m first team budget (players, coaches, travel, etc) not being good enough to get promoted.

No-one ever goes broke from having more money than sense.  Brokes people typically have more sense than money.

If anyone on here is a gambler, don't bet on Spain because 1. the odds will be lousy and 2. I've just got them in a world cup sweepstake.

Football League has apparently rejected the proposal for a 'League Three' and for strategic loan partnerships.

 

However the thing currently called the Johnstone's Paint Trophy may be reconfigured to admit Premier League B teams.

 

And thus England will win the 2022 World Cup.

John Oliver on FIFA and the World Cup. Very funny, slightly chilling.

FIFA are a disgusting organisation, the personal plaything of dictator Blatter. He's now pulling the race card to get himself out of the utterly ridiculous and obviously corrupt choice of Qatar in 2022.

At least with RL the worst we face is self-interest and incompetence instead of corruption. The worst is that nothing will be done and the whole event is just seen as another black mark on English football, meaning that we'll probably never see an English World Cup again in my lifetime.

We've drawn Derry City in the Europa League qualifying.

That should be a cracking tie; is it winnable do you think? If so, will they be at home in the next round on 17th July? I ask because I'm in mid-Wales that week (daughter's graduation) and I wouldn't mind popping along.

St Johnstone have drawn FC Luzern from Switzerland, which is certainly more welcome than last year's tie with FC Minsk. The authorities don't seem to understand the needs of travelling football fans regarding visas.

I don't think it is particularly winnable.  We got into Europe via the Welsh Cup - losing finalists to TNS after what must have been one of the easiest runs to the final in history.  Even our semi final was against a lower tier side - and we finished 7th (albeit disputed) because we didn't make the top half of the split in the league.  I'd expect a spirited but heavy defeat over two legs.

 

With regards to the next round. This tie is match 27 and my understanding is that the home side on July 17 will be the side that wins match 27.  They will play Shakhtyor Salihorsk of Belarus.

I've had another thought that'd make it even more 'authentic' - you have to play in your school shoes!

And get shouted in one by one by a mam type voice. The type that goes up a couple of octaves by the time it gets to the end

I had the pleasure of Wigan Robin Park v Salford City last Tuesday, was so good Phil Neville gave up at half time and left!  Finished 1-1, should have been a Wigan victory but they missed a penalty with about 10 to go, Salford put out a strong team but they didn't look right fussed about putting a shift in!
