I've always considered this league our most entertaining so it'll be nice to start a proper thread on it

Stoke at 12s for the title my first bet on it this season, hopefully throughout the season I can look to land some overs in individual games and also to get involved in games on every match day

Come on Forest!!!

Gotta back Fulham this season for the title?

A 1-1 draw is all right and you've signed Stearman and Morrison who are both decent at this level, Stearman is a good professional as well gives 100% an honest player

If you sign Jagielka and 1 or 2 attackers you should be fine in my opinion, nothing spectacular but safe from relegation at least

I think with the players you've signed it would be better if you had a Mick McCarthy type in charge though, you ain't playing any type of tippy tappy football with those players so best to go for steel and guile

Luton always play good stuff, they will be top half this season in my opinion

Preston might be dark horses for relegation

Luton have signed 8 players and much improved their squad for this season. Far more and better options up front. James Collins moving to Cardiff could be a blessing in disguise, far too static for this league. Top 6 finish would not surprise at all.

As for Preston, the squad does not look good enough and their home form is woeful. Fans could turn on the Manager early. More than just dark horses for relegation. One of the front runners.

They should stick him on gardening leave and put McClaren in Plain makes no sense having McClaren doing nothing and Rooney in the dug out when it should be the other way round

When your being done by dross like Peterboro in stoppage time its time to realise its not working out, and its now 6 months since a competitive win in 90 minutes?, can't defend set pieces or do any basics right and yet he's still there when in the past Mad Mel has sacked managers despite still being in the play off places

its the small businesses and fans I feel for, those bas*ards get to skulk off and take a big fat bank balance with them, leaving the club, the fans and the small businesses to pick up the pieces

Other fans wanting their pound of flesh should be wise enough to know the same could and will happen to them eventually, those suits in the board room give not a flying fook about your club its just a plaything or a way to fleece cash before cutting and running. The fans need to start taking control back of these clubs ffs, cut out the middle men ie the scumbags that use and abuse our cultural heritage.

Mel Morris is no fan of Derby County, he's a piece of s*it psycho businessman, and a fooking poor one at that.

He never used any of his own cash if he even has any cash to begin with

He used the club to rake in money and spent it all trying to get into the premier league bubble, ie to be in with the club so to speak, it was all about Mel and his ego and the club was just a thing he used to try and get his fame and fortune

If I were the EFL I'd strip him of all the assets he's had put into his holding companies, he's put the stadium and training ground into his own companies? the man is a fooking disgusting parasite and should never be allowed to set foot in a football stadium again much less Derby's

Must say I watched Luton on the box last night. It could have been 7 or 8 goals. Their Keeper could have slept through the match and they would still have won. A very fast side on the front foot now Collins has gone.
