    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.
