    Players legitimately going down "injured" because they get hit by the football.

    Absolutely ridiculous.

    Great night at Turf Moor last night

    Everton's run-in of fixtures is awful. I'd make Burnley favourites to get out of trouble.

    "Everton have played in the top flight of English football for all but four seasons since the 1888 creation of the Football League"
    That's an amazing stat.

    Yes, i think if Everton go, there will only be Arsenal left who have been virtually ever-present in the top division.

    Derby County relegated. No sympathy whatsoever.

    The Derby captain stated that he was "super gutted"

    Looking at face-value you'd think they would come straight back up. However it seems they haven't (or won't have) many first-team players left next season on a contract, and possible rumours of another large points deduction.

    They only went down because they had 21 points deducted, and this means that one team that deserved to go down will stay up.

    Until the parachute payment scheme is stopped this will keep happening. The EFL has recognised it as a major problem, as the only way that the rest of the Championship teams can compete financially is by doing things likely to fall foul of the Financial Fair Play regulations

    Dodgy owners makes it worse too

    Whilst i totally agree that the parachute payment system is absolutely catastrophic.... Derby had 21pts deducted for a reason... constant breaking of the rules, failure to submit their details to the EFL...

    It isn't fair, but plenty of teams in the championship have to learn to live within the existing rules, even if it kills any ambition they might have.

    Of course, if they were a "big club" they'd undoubtedly have gotten away with it.... whatever happened to the punishments for the "big 6" trying to eradicate the English football league a year or two ago...?

    I don't always agree with your views - how could I? - although on this occasion I do; and at least it is always clear where you stand.

    Well I don't mind admitting I'm in tears - thankfully of joy. After 20 years of watching and supporting womens football at every level (thanks to a football mad 4 year old daughter who 20 years on is at Wembley with mum) finally, it gets the recognition it deserves. Well done the lionesses!
    Unbelievable!
