    Cambridge United have announced their first pre-season friendly is going to be on July 20th

    We won't even have broken up for Summer Holidays by then.

    It's Mike Dean's world and we're all privileged to share it with him

    This is completely unrelated but watch the behaviour of both the defender and the goalkeeper in both the awarding and taking of the penalty, then draw your own conclusions. I know I have (and so did my brother who was actually at the game).

    I only thought of it again because Tonbridge have just been promoted and I went to the play off semi against Merstham.

    I wonder if they'll be treating themselves to something nice in the near future...

    Looks like one of Chelses's horrible 1980s away kits.

    Oh dear! Poor old Watford!
    But well done Man City!

    (I always feel sorry for a team that gets thrashed)

    Boring - one sided final - no wonder there is so little interest in the competition these days.

    So Brighton sack Chris Hughton - who kept them up and has a decent track record as a premier league manager.

    They then hire Graham Potter - who managed a championship side to mid-table mediocrity and whom very few people have heard of and who has no premier league management experience.

    One can only assume he was very cheap.

    They'll be relegated next season - Potter will be gone by Easter (if he lasts that long)

    I had a great day yesterday. City were just magnificent.

    And gutting to lose Kompany but I wish him all the best at Anderlecht .

    Brighton deserve to be relegated after their treatment of Chris Hughton.

    Team that broke Financial Fair Play rules beat team that didn't.

    Team that could have put out three teams beats team with only one.

    I haven't seen a more one sided game than that for a long time.

    True. It’s a pity all the coverage has been about City’s achievement, noteworthy though that is. I didn’t think Watford played that badly, but they were totally outclassed by a team playing at a completely different level.

    Sorry. Were all the better teams banned from taking part?
