    Of the 3 bookmakers who quote odds for teams getting in to the playoffs the longest price for us is 5/1 - 1 chance in 6 - which after taking account of the percentage in the bookmakers' favour means they assess our chances as around 1 in 7 . The poor old dodo would love to have a chance as good as that !

    So what purpose is served by firing them ?

    It certainly would deserve to be the end. We will have to see what happens but I noticed that Lisa Nandy was saying yesterday that large numbers of party members are still waiting to receive ballot papers for the leadership contest and, you'll never guess, disproportionately they seem to be the people who have recently joined and are thought largely to favour Starmer.

    A change is not necessarily going to result in improvement. Going from Allardyce to Kean, for example. But the point was more about the decision makers - who is left to actually make decisions if everyone gets the bullet from India ?

    Looks like some decent people are starting to speaking out - Shadow Europe Minister Khalid Mahmood - the longest serving Muslim MP - has said that the move to discipline Phillips has brought "disrepute" on to the Labour party. "The charges are so outlandish as to bring disrepute on all involved in making them; and I fear they further add to the sense that we, as a party, have badly lost our way."

    Yes; something that the people who want everyone in sight sacked never seem to address is who then is left to appoint their replacements ? Mrs Desai ?

    Spot on - and an excellent response to the other posters above you. As for Starmer, we'll have to see. Silence so far from him on this which is not encouraging.

    Unbelievable to hear this morning that Trevor Phillips - one of the good guys in the Labour party - has been suspended by Labour for Islamophobia after speaking out against grooming gangs . His real "crime" of course was to stand up against the party leadership's failure to deal adequately with Labour's anti-semitism problem. Trevor Phillips doesn't have a racist bone in his body.

    No club in the Championship can hope to compete with Premier League clubs on the wages front.

    Young men make mistakes - always have, always will. Main thing is he learns from it.

    I know what you mean,mate, but just have a look at the post below yours - I ask you ?

    If true, good work by Mowbray.

    Thanks. Must be a very difficult conversation for those at the club who have to tell a young man of 18 that unfortunately he's not going to make it. Even harder for him if he's the only one of his year who isn't going to go on.
