    Have I mentioned Cambridge United are 3rd in League Two yet ?

    I'll be happy if we just avoid relegation at the end of thIs season.

    Going to Peterborough and Sunderland a week tomorrow - really looking forward to that.

    He once held the World Cup, Champions League, Europa League, and European Championship titles at the same time.

    1 x World Cup
    2 x European Championships
    2 x Europa Leagues
    1 x Champions League 1 x FA Cup
    and 300+ goals

    Not bad.

    About 3 of those goals were while he was at Chelsea.

    He was a total bust for us.

    He was never as good after two knee injuries in 2010 - Chelsea bought him in January 2011, and he never performed as brilliantly as he had for L'pool.

    Still put a few useful goals away, but always seemed a bit lightweight - spent a lot of time on the floor.

    However, part of our CL winning team (sub), so part of Chelsea history.

    My local League Two team have just built a new stand. The last time they did this, they were promoted. I had a season ticket at the time. Green Army:D:D

    Stevenage have a new stand - it looks like it's made from Lego. Has anyone seen Stevenage's new logo - it has a deer on it that looks like Bambi

    ...and which healthy product is on the new (appalling) home shirts - yes you guessed it - Burger King.

    ....and they haven't scored yet this season.

    We lost 2-1 to Oldham today having battered them for 90 minutes - quite an encouraging display - just bad finishing.

    Only 4 of the team were in the side that finished last season.

    .....and at the very last moment I moved the captaincy of my FF side away from Salah.

    I moved mine to Sterling So I hope he has a good game tomorrow.. I also brought Pukki in so I am pleased. My defence were terrible this week.

    I don't have any Spurs players - since I expect they will put endless goals past Newcastle this afternoon that's likely to be a mistake

    I wouldn't actually give much for Bolton's chances either.

    What happens to the results already in and the results that won't come in?
  19. peakster

    peakster Star commenter

    I suspect they would all be wiped out.

    If Bolton go (and I think they will) then League 1 will be 22 clubs this year and there will be only two teams relegated. Four clubs would come up from League 2 and two additional teams from the National league would come up into League 2 to balance out the numbers.

    Bolton have no players so even if there is a takeover they will certainly be relegated anyway.

    The debts are crippling - nobody in their right mind would want to take them on.

    As a fan of lower League footy, I am absolutely gutted for Bury. Just imagine all the euphoria of promotion and then before a ball is kicked in the new division your club more or less cease to exist. I know they will rise again but it will take time.
