    I feel like Donny fans should be having a bit of an enjoyable night tonight. Ok their season has gone to ****, but what the last two seasons should teach us is that if you nick Donny's manager you're getting relegated to League 1 at the end of the season.

    FC Massive can confirm that it has formally begun the procedures to withdraw from Sky Bet Championship and join 23 clubs in a new competition, the Sky Bet League One.

    I think without Clough they'd never have gotten into the top league in the first place though.

    Methinks the presence of Peter Taylor had a major impact on Clough's career successes.

    True. And, we could have got him to leave Hartlepools (as it was then) United but Derby had more vision. And we could have got him when he went to Forest.Both of them were in the same division as us at the time and we had a larger stadium than either of them.

    No. Used to enjoy going with people there even in bad times more than surrounded by people more interested in the opposition, asking Gerrard to give them a wave, greeting arriving teams like Man Utd with applause as they got off the bus. Same as I enjoyed being with the few in crowds of 3,000 and less in the 1980s when many jumped ship or took up following eggchasing.

    Only 13 clubs have ever averaged over 40,000 for a season and if Sunderland don't go up 2 of them will be in League 1 next season.
    Only one of those 13 have played in the fourth tier. Hopefully Wednesday will make it 2 in the near future.

    Spot on. Didn't our chairman's company, Hoveringham Gravel, also have a private box at Forest when Clough was their manager ?
    I once wrote to City suggesting we approach Jack Charlton who was at Boro. City were looking for a manager at the time. I received a sarcastic reply saying thank you for applying for the role of manager of Hull City but we regret to inform you that your application this time has not been successful.

    If they've cheated as claimed and now supported by the independent panel, then League 1 is where they belong!

    Speculation is that the punishment for the offence is liable to be a fine rather than points.

    So a club is found guilty of financial irregularities, and the penalty is a fine! You couldn't make it up!

    Utter madness. 10 points deducted. Not fair on the other clubs. Make an example out of them

    Derby not having a good week in the courts...Richard Keogh has secured a payout of around £2.3m from Derby County after being sacked by the club back in 2019.
