Signing his professional contract in December 2006, the world was at the young Welshman's feet. Having lightning fast pace, great stamina and positional awareness put Ribeiro's name on the radar for the bigger clubs such as Everton. Ribeiro opted to stay at Ashton Gate stating: ''I felt I had a better chance of playing regular football for Bristol City at the time'' Only making 14 appearances due to an injury-hit 5 seasons at Ashton Gate saw his contract finally terminated by City this summer.

[I]t was a close-call, but Danny Ings pipped fellow Claret Kieran Trippier to this year's YP gong. The Wintonian was simply irrepressible and – to Burnley supporters' joy – managed to return from the sidelines just as his strike partner Sam Vokes had hobbled off with a season-ending injury. Trippier, who once again claimed the right-back spot in the divisional PFA team of the year, can however be considered unlucky not to have made the award his own; a great career surely lies ahead for the former Manchester City youth-teamer.

Sacha Kljestan and RSC Anderlecht were on the verge of ending their UEFA Champions League campaign before it ever really got started, but two goals in the final nine minutes of their second leg against AEL changed that.

Anderlecht punched their ticket to the group stage of the Champions League, earning a 3-2 aggregate victory after defeating the Cyprus club, 2-0, at home in the final play-off round on Tuesday.

[T]he stats relating to the duration of managerial spells are, as you might expect, damning. This season, the average length of employment across the Premier and Football League's 92 clubs is 1.64 seasons. In the Championship the mean is even worse, standing at 0.82 seasons. Between the Premier League and League Two, 47 of the 92 managers currently in position are yet to complete a full season with their club (which will rise to 48 when Mansfield appoint a replacement for Paul Cox).

It may have taken them an absolute age but Scunthorpe United eventually managed to put an end to non-league Worcester City's FA Cup heroics by way of an epic, record-breaking penalty shoot-out at theAggborough Stadium last night.

With the second-round tie finishing 1-1 after extra-time despite a total of 54 chances raining in on goal (28 for Worcester, 26 for Scunthorpe) over the course of 120 minutes, what followed was thelongest penalty shoot-out in FA Cuphistory.

In England, a football club's home ground is as much a part of the club's heritage as the shirts and the great names who have worn them in years gone by. Fans grew supporting their team and making a pilgrimage to their home ground and that home ground rarely moved.
