Famous 5ive: Deadline day flops

If you’ve been anywhere near Sky Sports News today, no doubt you’ll be aware that the 31 August can only mean one thing; BREAKING NEWS: TRANSFER DEADLINE DAY! Aka the day where lots of men stand around in various car parks across the country trying not to look like suspicious dogging enthusiasts and the day when we have to feign excitement when the announcement comes through that Marcus Bent has joined his 317th club on loan.

10/11 Championship Preview - Playoff Hopefuls

They may not be the most meritocratic invention, but it’s hard to argue with the excitement they bring to the end of the season, and once again a whole host of names can potentially count themselves in the running to emulate Blackpool’s unlikely success and gain promotion through the playoffs.

10/11 Championship Preview - The Front Runners

In a way it feels wrong to be doing this so early, when by rights we should all be watching cricket (and Rugby League) and taking a well earned break from the beautiful game, but just 27 days after the World Cup final (not that many of these players will have been involved), the first weekend of the English football league kicks off this Saturday, the 7th August. So with that in mind, CollinsBeans will give a breakdown of who is set to thrive, and who might be struggling to survive. Part 1 focuses on those clubs looking to take the two automatic promotion spots.
