Target Skuse Exits Bristol City
Thursday, 9th May 2013 11:09
Bristol City have confirmed that Town target Cole Skuse is leaving Ashton Gate this summer. The Blues are believed to have agreed a three-year deal with the 27-year-old.
The relegated Robins also announced the exit of former Blues striker Jon Stead in a statement on their website: “Whilst the club would like to keep hold of Jon Stead and Cole Skuse, they will both depart Ashton Gate this summer.
“Stead is aiming for a move back up north, while Skuse is likely to secure a deal in the Championship.”
Director of football Keith Burt says his club understand why Skuse, who has also been linked with Crystal Palace, has decided to move on: “With Cole, he’s been an exemplary servant for this football club and we fully understand his reasons for moving on at this time in his career.”
Skuse’s terms at Bristol City are officially up on June 30th at which point he will be able to formally put pen to paper elsewhere.

The National Conundrum by Bluetaff
No, not the referendum – although don’t get me started on that can of worms, I mean the constant disappointment of the national team at… well, the national game.

14 Years in the Second Tier But Be Careful What You Wish For by ORomeoZondervan
It is true, Ipswich have spent 14 consecutive years in the second tier of English football. Some would be quite proud of this achievement but others view this as abject failure, point to others' successes and believe a change at top is the answer.
However, I think some perspective is required.
