Things are looking shaky for Bury.

A good pun.

Genuinely worrying both for Bury and for the EFL who have confirmed they did not actually authorise or do any checks on the takeover. It is a complete mess.

Aston Villa sign Marvelous Nakamba, making 13 signings this summer https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49121478

But are the knives out already for the Villa?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49158163

They’ve brought in a lot of new players which is a strategy that didn’t work for Fulham last year.

I know every promoted team has to do some kind of strengthening exercise, but I’m always wary of those that rip the heart out of their team to do it.

That said, Grealish knows what’s expected and Heaton should bring some leadership to the defence.

First day of the season and Swindon Town are away at Scunny and... 

...I'm off to "Brizzle" to drink cider, on a boat, with my daughter. Late Father's Day present! 😀

In sad news, Bolton travel to Wycombe with only three senior outfield players according to the BBC.

Still no news on the takeover either.

Meanwhile local rivals Bury in even worse position with their second league game of the season against Accrington Stanley now called off.

Salford City off to a good start in the Football League so far.

They lead Stevenage 1-0 at home with a fairly healthy gate on.

Be interesting to see how far they can go in the league structure given their backers.

It's a minor thing but I'm very pleased to see the correct punctuation returning to football scores.

The BBC have the team as Bradford (Park Avenue), as it should be.

Anybody thinking about subscribing to The Athletic for £3 a month?

Basically it’s an online US sports website that has spent big on luring the top writing talent and local reporters - now they are making a play for the UK football market.

This kind of football only thing has never really worked in the UK before (unlike say in Italy), but the first signs are good in terms of content.

Anyone tempted?

I already subscribe for the US content. It started city by city and Chicago (and thus the Cubs) was an early one. So it's pretty much my go-to for anything American. I think it will very quickly move on from soccer to other European sports. A sub is well worth it.

A bit odd...

 


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!
