Looking at the recent alumni of Charlton Athletic Football Club, it is clear to see that The Valley is a breeding ground for players destined for the Premier League.
Jonjo Shelvey, Carl Jenkinson and Joe Gomez have all left the London club to sign for elite teams in the recent past, while Ademola Lookman appears to be the next gem to be snapped up by a top-flight side.
José’s back in town. Like a persistent infection that lingers after treatment, he reared his head at his third official unveiling in English football – the first away from the initial host Chelsea, which is still recovering from the destruction caused by their last bout of Mourinh-itis. The symptoms are the same – the strong sense of confidence and belief, and a fierce desire for victory – and the willingness to attack vulnerable targets continues, with both Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger subjected to subtle barbs.
Adam Armstrong will return to Newcastle in pre-season after spending a really successful loan spell at Coventry City last season, where he performed extremely well for the Sky Blues and scored 20 goals in 40 appearances for the club. The good news for Newcastle is that Adam was well managed by Coventry manager Tony Mowbray [.
During Rochdale's 1-1 League One draw with Gillingham, the Spotland stadium announcer took it upon himself to kindly read out the number plate of a car which had its lights left on. However, little did he know that the owner of the car in question was none other than Dale midfielder Callum Camps, who was in action on the pitch.
Having made the 40-milejaunt down the A605, Peterborough donned their fluorescent yellow away kit for Saturday's League One clash with local-ish rivals Northampton.
Sadly, their snazzy hi-vis strip proved to be their undoing well, specifically the undoing of veteran midfielder Michael Bostwick, who fell foul of a touchline colour clash when he expertly picked out the overlapping run of a matchday steward.
Gallowgate Flags are starting to get the attention they deserve. On their own initiative some season ticket holders in the Gallowgate end have takenit upon themselves to create and produce flags that will be used during the Newcastle games. They have already met with Newcastle officials and have received the club's blessing and support to [.
Christian Atsu, our Ghanaian winger who is on loan this season from Chelseawas the only one of our four players to score from his spot kick last night and even that went in off the under-side of the cross bar.

It was great to see Aleksandar Mitrovic start last night for Newcastle and he looked as keen as ever and in good form too. Mitro put us ahead after 19 minutes from an inch perfect free kick from Matt Richie was easily headed home by the still very young 22 year-old Serbian International and then [.
Benitez took Liverpool to an FA Cup triumph in 2006 when they beat Alan Pardew's West Ham side 3-1 on penalties after the game had finished at 3-3 after 90 minutes. That was after Steven Gerrard had equalized in the 91st minute with a tremendous long distance effort. Rafa also took Liverpool to the League [.
While it's not quite on par with Galatasaray's infamous 'Welcome to Hell' banner, it would appear that Northampton Town are trying their damnedest to unsettle Manchester United ahead of tonight's EFL Cup tie between the two sides.
Refusing to pander to their esteemed Premier League visitors, the Cobblers' seemed to ensure that circumstances dictated United were forced to warm-up in the hotel car park.
Rafa gave his press conference today and one of the things he was questions on was who will leave and who will stay but of courseRafa couldn't talk about any new players coming in. As far as players leaving such as Daryl Janmaat or Yoan Gouffran he said it was dependent on the offers that [...]
