Next Sunday they play the 2nd placed side. Hopefully next week they'll be 4pts clear, with a game in hand, with 3 more games to play. C'mon Croft!!!

A brilliant 4-1 win! #nearlythere

Oh dear, on the eve of a massive game for his current club against his former club too.

You take far too much interest for my liking.

Just spotted a Tigers fan in the crowd at the KC sporting a Smiths t-shirt.

 

Heaven knows they're miserable now.

I suppose it would have been a downer on the city's mood for Magic Weekend if Newcastle had been relegated.

Haha, absolutely fantastic.

Cross Keys was a great place to be although no one seemed to be joining in my euphoria.

He certainly seems to have something. What he did with Hamilton was extraordinary, and although Norwich are a much better club it is no small achievement to get them pack in the top flight.

He could be the next alex Ferguson.

He helped build Accies reputation for producing young footballers through their youth system.They rely on this for the first team.

A good club but poorly supported because of the proximity of Celtic and Rangers.

As part of my occasional 'lets's give soccer another chance' moments, I watched the Canada v China opening game of the Women's World Soccer Cup last night. I remember someone once telling me that the slower pace of the women's game makes for a more entertainment with a better use of skill and that there is less squirming around on the floor as if shot.  Only one of these things is true. It IS slower!

I didn't see last night's match, but I've watched women's Football in the past and quite enjoyed it. Kelly Smith was a quality player for England, but I think she's retired now. Ditto Birgit Prinz.

 

But the skill level and overall quality is more variable than the men's game.

Pretty rubbish game that but at least Canadaland won.  Germany had a strange 10-0 victory over Cote d'Ivoire yesterday - strange in the sense that it was clear the Ivorians weren't *bad* players as such just hopelessly outgunned and nowhere near as well coached.

Hull Tigers have learned that their first match of the 2015/2016 overpaid diving season is away against Accrington Stanley in the first round of the Capital One Trophy.

 

If the game is a draw will the Allams, in line with their £16 to watch Hull Tigers v Burnley but £50 to watch Hull Tigers v Chelsea, way of thinking, charge half a crown for the replay?
