    Good point...although on the basis of this weekend it would seem to be a regrettable purchase. I did not see every kit mind you.

    Away kits are rarely good.

    I share your annoyance in teams using them unnecessarily. It's all the worse when the club in question has home colours for which they are famous - which is the case for both Leeds and West Brom.

    What to expect from The Athletic UK

    It was posted over in the Premier League thread. If you don't already have the Athletic it is well worth it and with UK writers in bound it is only going to get better.

    Stoke looked meh despite having a lot of the ball today. Leko looked for Charlton; I keep thinking this guys is going to break out one of these years, still only 20 so he has time.

    Bit late but I'll go for West Brom, Fulham and Leeds to get promoted. Forest, Derby and Brentford in the playoffs.

    I would call this an out there/ interesting selection for playoffs. I just cannot see them getting any higher than mid-table.

    Meh is quite an improvement. Thanks!

    At this rate, by December, we'll be FG Rovers.

    Can't deny, I'm glad MK Dons won.

    The outrage they get is as if they murdered puppies countrywide.

    I do understand it's different across the pond but it's getting old.

    Jan Siewert already out at Huddersfield. Including the Premier League he had 1 win in 19 matches

    According to the Telegraph he was supposed to be sacked after their loss to Lincoln in the league cup but because of the quick turnaround for the Fulham game he remained in charge but essentially knew he was getting sacked if they lost. Also seems like the players tuned him out

    Interim manager will be Mark Hudson

    I know its way too early to be saying things like this, but I think this is the year that Leeds finally get back up.

    Bolton have postponed their match today so face further points reduction (started the season at -12) as it wasn't approved by the EFL and Doncaster, in fact Doncaster only learned the game was cancelled on twitter. Also in the same league, Bury hasn't played a single match yet.

    I wonder how they will manage come the point when they start playing. I feel for fans of the team.

    Them and Bury are in dire. I do hope they manage to find their way. I love my Prem, but I've fallen in love with lower league football.

    Bolton have played before today but I guess they are using junior players? That was there excuse for cancelling the game: the health of their players playing 3 games in a week. How old are the players they are using?

    Managed to find their team from Saturday, a lot of 16-17 year olds on the bench with mostly 18-19 year old starting sprinkled with some experienced players

    Would be nice for them to find their way for the stories but will be a huge blow for whom ever goes down in their place.

    The Lower Leagues are so exciting, and there is so much on the line in each week/season for every club. In a weird way I miss Brighton being down just cause I followed it more....

    Hmm miss may be the wrong word, the prem is pretty nice;)

    Bristol v Derby has been a solid game thus far.

    This is such a shame...Bolton may not have been a fancied club but they had some really good players put the shirt on and had a long run in the Premier league. I don't know what will become of the Bolton's and Bury's. Maybe others yet...

    No games on DAZN today which was too bad. Champions league took priority.

    Another solid lineup of games today, looking forward to Leeds v Brentford.
