Re: Barrow FC

There was talk of allowing Bury into the national league thus making it back up to 24. This is why I assumed that 4 were still going to get relegated.

Re: Chris Wood injury.

Given any opportunity to have wood or Barnes back Dyche will take it. Dyche doesn’t like Vydra and only played him on Saturday as it was the only option. Dyche played an injured Barnes for months remember instead of giving Vydra ago.

City look set to appeal this decision. If it’s like when Chelsea appealed their transfer embargo city will be allowed into next seasons champions league whilst the appeal happens and then the 2 year ban will get reduced to 1 year.

When booking train tickets everyone should always check to see if it’s cheaper to split your tickets.
It’s well known now that usually splitting tickets is cheaper and if you don’t look you’re just throwing money away to usually foreign national railway companies.
