Sean Dyche - Where next? And when?

Whether we like it or not, at some point this will sadly end. But when and how? It should be clear to all by now that SD values our loyalty and vice versa. We got stung by Coyle in 2010, Dyche got stung by Watford in 2012. Our current marriage began in 2012. Realistically, there will be a time where...

“The Socios model runs counter to that as it attempts to monetise fan engagement which the leagues and clubs have committed to doing for free."

Sadly, Norwich and Sheffield Utd would also lose 6 points. The one positive is that West Brom would only lose 3 points, therefore making Leeds slightly less likely to go up by virtue of a four horse race as opposed to a three.

There were some great days out with Sussex Clarets, although my recollections as to their untimely demise is that those seeking tickets took the p1ss out of the organisers, and those organising tickets ultimately took the p1ss out of their sources.

'Sick' is a word that cab driver's ears are trained to pick out from a load of nonsense that they are otherwise trying to ignore. Along with 'ill', 'not feeling well' etc.

Passengers would be well advised to use other terminology to avoid being stranded a long walk from home.
