    Celtic manager Neil Lennon has resigned with his side 18 points adrift of Rangers in the Scottish Premiership.

    Lennon took charge for a second spell in February 2019 when Brendan Rodgers left and led the club to two titles, two Scottish Cups and a League Cup.

    Watched the Baggies v Brighton game today.
    Brighton had a penalty,which struck the post and rebounded to the penalty taker, who played the ball again.
    Ref blew for a free kick to Baggies.
    The TV commentator and his "expert" assistant could not understand why.

    Expert,knowledgeable or what? <doh>

    You have to wonder what qualifies some of these people as experts!

    love to know his opinion on why the quick free kick was chalked off!

    Not sure if it’s been mentioned on here but Ipswich are expecting an imminent takeover by a US Group, buying the club for just £17.5m! Paul Cook is apparently lined up to replace Paul Lambert.

    Reported on PinkUn and EADT.

    Something needs to happen at Portaloo. Its no fun without them in the same league. We can't beat them if we don't play them!

    I’d be interested to know how how much Marcus Evans has invested in comparison to Delia?

    I think he's writing off nearly £100m of club debt to him for this deal to progress, so he must be fairly well off.

    From BBC gossip column

    Premier League clubs have discussed changes to the transfer window that would
    permit players under the age of 21 to leave on loan after deadline day. (Mail)

    I don't think that's a bad idea really. Get some experience for the yoof and help lower league clubs get some players on loan to fill out a squad

    I agree 100%. Cover for injuries, etc at a higher level than just playing in the under 23's or occasional cup match. Win,win. <ok>

    Always seemed daft that a youngster could recover from injury in February and not be able to get first team experience until August/September, whilst clubs sign journeyman free agents to plug gaps in their squad.
