I wouldn't be upset, if it were limited to League 2 and below, and had a quota of English players with an age cap.

Needs to happen though, it's time for a fresh start (especially if van Gaal is coming in, since his style is more suited to younger players).

Tottenham are a mess right now. 
Does it go:
Van Gaal to Manchester United
De Boer to Tottenham
Sherwood to Brighton
Hughton to West Brom
Mackay to Norwich
Allardyce sacked
Moyes  to West Ham

What's everyone's thoughts on Southampton next year. Could be in turmoil, no manager, Lallana & Shaw potentially leaving & others beginning to question what direction the club are heading. Tough season next year? It only takes a few factors for a club to nose-dive in this division.

You can replace the likes of Lallana 20m & Shaw-27-30m with 50m John. It's just a matter of who is coach.

Must be De Boer. Linking up with Eriksen & Vertonghan again, gains immediate respect from the players & it's a big name. He's successful & plays attractive football that Spurs fans have been crying out for. Has Pochettino been that incredible at Southampton.....not for me.

What Nick said. Ours was about the "far from certain" "possibility".

That Islington sign is as if they've already played the game, marched up the steps, shook hands with the suits, and gone mad on the pitch.

Hoping for an NFL style meme of African kids celebrating the impending delivery of Arsenal FA Cup Winners gear. If Hull win.

May I ask how having to play Tottenham, Everton and Liverpool, not to mention Wigan, means you've had the FA Cup handed to you?

Ludicrous statement, they've had a testing road to the final.

Cardiff received more than last seasons winners.

Said it before, FFP will not work in the Championship, you'll end up with the same teams cycling in and out of the PL. It'll become like the top 4 used to be, only without the ability for a City to break in through spending.
