Boro suing the EFL over Derby's dealings
at 06:50 13 Sep 2019

From The Times

"Middlesbrough are set to sue the English Football League, alleging that it failed to enforce its financial rules over Derby County’s purchase of their own stadium.

In an unprecendented move, the Sky Bet Championship club have sent a legal letter to the EFL after Derby beat them to a play-off place last season by one point, denying Middlesbrough the chance of securing promotion to the Premier League and a potential £180 million windfall.

Derby are among a number of clubs who have been accused by rivals of exploiting a loophole in the EFL’s rules that allowed them to buy their own stadium to make themselves financially compliant."

Before the incident, Downes was by far and away our best midfielder
at 16:35 27 Jul 2019

Doing everything that would've been asked of him. Getting stuck in, winning the ball, driving forward, spraying passes. It really was a "midfield general" performance. Playing way beyond his years.

But there's no excuse for the red mist. Yes, get up and push your chest into the other chap if you must. But a full-on headbutt is naive. As has been said elsewhere, he'll be targeted by older/wiser players, looking for that reaction. It's where Skuse/Chambers
/Judge will need to be in his ear.

Given he cost the same as Kayden Jackson, it should give us a good indication of what we should set as our asking price.

Oh, while we're on a cricket theme, it should have been five runs not six
at 12:45 15 Jul 2019

...when the ball his Stokes' bat.

Apparently the additional runs are added to whatever runs had been completed, or more crucially, if the batsmen had *crossed* at the time when the thrower releases the ball.

"Law 19.8, pertaining to “overthrow or wilful act of fielder”, means that England’s second on-field run should not have counted because Stokes and Adil Rashid, his batting partner, had not crossed when the Guptill released his throw towards the stumps.
The relevant law states that if the boundary results from an overthrow or the wilful act of the scorer then runs should be given for: penalties awarded to either side, the allowance for the boundary, and the runs complete by the batsmen, together with the run in progress but only if they had already crossed at the instance of the throw or act."

Replay next week?
