    October

    September has been and gone, so it's time to post your predictions for the month of October. We managed to get through a pretty difficult looking month with 11 points from a possible 21, but we failed to win any of our three local derbies. Which is nice, because we start October with another...

    Incident at London Bridge

    Reports a van has run down 15-20 people on London Bridge. If true it sounds pretty similar to Westminster. Others saying there may have been stabbings or gunfire. Sigh.

    England B

    After yet another tournament failure we again heard how a team of uncapped, unfancied or Championship players would perform better for England because "they care more". I think it's a load of bullshit myself, but with Malta coming up it would be interesting to see how it would go down (not that...

    2018 World Cup qualifiers - Europe

    Netherlands losing again, currently 1-0 down against Sweden (it's live on ITV4, for those interested). Looking at their group, they might struggle to qualify again. You'd expect France to go through while Sweden, Bulgaria and Belarus will cause them problems.

    R.I.P. David Bowie

    No thread on this yet? I was looking forward to getting home and reading Carel's heartfelt tributes. I am genuinely saddened by this though. Fuck cancer.

    Big Sam sacked within 5 minutes of season ending

    Well, not sacked as such. But West Ham aren't renewing his contract, which comes as no big surprise. Big Sam actually found out about it on Friday but for the club to announce it within minutes of the season ending is incredibly savage.

    Zach Clough

    Where has this guy come from? Whenever I've seen him play he's been exceptional. He's not been out on loan anywhere or featured in any of England's youth sides, so is it a tale of late development or just a case of making the most of his appearances in Bolton's first team?
