|Lots of Town connections in the Grauniad’s EFL teams of the season|
at 22:50 30 May 2018
Josh Emmanuel as full back in League 1 team of the season, Paul Hurst manager of the season. Jack Marriott and Brett Pitman also in the same team.
It also highlights Shrewsbury’s Henderson and Nsiala too - they look like the best options if Hurst goes raiding at his old club, probably along with Nolan.
No room for any of our players in the Championship team tho. Not even room on the bench for Bart or Waghorn. Seems harsh.
|Sergio Ramos - the dirtiest player in Champions League history|
at 20:22 26 May 2018
More red and yellow cards than anyone else in the history of the Champions League. Amazed the commentators haven’t commented on that, given that he’s just finished Salah’s game.
This would never have happened with Motty.
|Evans approach to Hurst|
at 14:18 26 May 2018
So presumably, now that we are down to a shortlist of one, whatever happens after tomorrow’s play off final, Evans has to be the first person on the phone to Hurst, smother him with flattery, tell him he’s the man we’ve been waiting for, the only one for us, we’ll quadruple his salary and give him 3 years security to do his job.
Basically make him feel the way Ross was made to feel by Sunderland’s manager - wanted.
Then we get him in the building as quickly as possible.
|Today is 50 days since McCarthy's departure was announced.|

Or 38 days, if you count from day he actually left.
The only time we've had to wait anywhere near as long as this was before Robson was appointed.

|You know, I still reckon Southampton could go down. |
at 22:05 8 May 2018
Southampton are 9 goals and 3 points ahead of Swansea. If Swansea win and Southampton lose, with a 9 goal swing to Swansea, the Welsh boys stay up.
Southampton are playing Man City at home - if they go into that game thinking they’re already safe, Man City could easily put 4/5 past them.
Swansea are home to Stoke, who are in total disarray and already relegated. Get a couple in the first half and anything could happen.
Of course, it’s unlikely. But Southampton’s celebrations at the end of the game seem a little premature. It’s not over yet...
