Reaction as fans await SPFL vote outcome\"It is very important that clubs consider carefully the resolution and we are grateful to those clubs who have voted already,\" said an SPFL spokesperson. With the Ladbrokes Premiership and Ladbrokes Leagues 1 & 2 divisions each having approved the resolution, we await the voting slip from the one Ladbrokes Championship club that has yet to vote. We will provide an update as soon as we are in a position to do so.
However, things have changed of late and they are now undefeated in their last four home matches in the league, winning three and drawing one. This improvement of late is also reflected in the form table, where they have claimed 14 points from their last eight league matches, a return which is only four points behind the best points return in the league.
Despite this, they remain seventh in the league, only two points off the final UCL spot made available by Manchester City's UEFA ban. At the other end of the table, bottom-placed Norwich gave themselves a lifeline with a first win in five matches when they toppled Leicester City on Friday. Unsurprisingly, the victory came at Carrow Road, one of only a handful of venues that Norwich have managed to win this season.
Before Norwich look to end their horrible run of form when hosting Tottenham at Carrow Road, it’s 19th hosts 18th when Watford welcome Aston Villa to Vicarage Road in a 3pm kick-off. Watford have taken four points from a possible six under Nigel Pearson, and will look to continue that mini-run against a Villa side who ended a four-game losing streak with a scrappy victory at home to Norwich on Boxing Day.
With interim manager Duncan Ferguson at the helm, it looked as though the Toffees might be on their way to a famous victory, only for the substitute to level things 13 minutes from time. And Solskjaer was even frustrated that his side did not go on to win the game. We're disappointed that we didn't get three [points],\" Solskjaer added.
Former Everton manager David Moyes and Napoli manager Carlo Ancelotti have also been discussed, and Pereira's announcement could bring the Scot back into contention. Pereira, 51, led Porto to back-to-back Primeira Liga titles after stepping up from his previous role as assistant manager in 2011. He was interviewed for the Everton manager's job in 2013 before Roberto Martinez was appointed as successor to Moyes.
Many within the Spanish sports world criticised the move to Saudi Arabia for prioritising money and ignoring abuses in the Muslim kingdom where women’s rights lag and officials masterminded the 2018 murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The RFEF has not released financial details of its deal to move the competition to Saudi Arabia for three years, though media estimate the deal will bring it up to 40 million euros annually ($44 million).
More fool you. To be fair, there have been plenty of rumours, including Dries Mertens, but, as the month rumbled on with no concrete news of new signings, fans' frustrations grew. The club's first strategy seemed to be to try and make a bit of a joke about the whole thing. View more on twitterWhich, rather surprisingly, went down like a lead balloon.

Timo Werner scored his first goals since the Bundesliga returned from a two-month break amid the coronavirus pandemic as RB Leipzig thumped Mainz. The 24-year-old Germany striker took his tally for the season to 30 with a superb hat-trick as his side won 5-0 to move third in the table. Elsewhere on Sunday, pressure is mounting on Schalke boss David Wagner after his side lost 3-0 to Augsburg. Schalke are now winless in nine games, and have scored only twice in that run.
Friendly match in Sweden between Sodertalje vs Assyriska United IK. My bet on this match is draw or away team to win. Both team are bad teams. I think that in this match there isn't clear favorite. I think that the chances of winning for both teams are 50/50. Both teams lose many goals in their matches, which is why I think there will be many goals in this match, but the odds of over 2.5 goals are low.
But they won't say if it's even possible that he could leave this summer. Erling's pretty smart. He knows what he's got in Dortmund and his €75m release fee doesn't click .

I think we'll see more small deals and deals with the biggest clubs, but not in the middle. Clubs will be willing to spend three or four million, but not 15 or 20. Or clubs will spend £60m because they know it's a world-class player and they have security on that. Don't be offering players - it's not the right moment'Agents haven't been as proactive as they normally are in May, in terms of trying to get deals done.
Cagliari are one of the easiest scoring home teams in the league with 19 goals in 8 games at home. Only today's opponent Lazio has scored more goals at home so far this season. In the last 4 games at home Cagliari has scored a total of 14 goals. However, they also have kept a clean sheet only once at home this season.
Sarabia was filmed ranting at players during the Clasico at the weekend, and it has become a talking point in Spain. Spanish newspaper Marca says that while those higher up at the club aren’t worried over his actions, they don’t want them to take place where fans and the press can see them. Eder SarabiaEurosport Paper Round’s view: Given the fragile nature of the club, and the relationship between the players and executives, you can understand both reactions.

Nothing unusual for a professional footballer, except this was not carried out by anti-doping authorities, but by Chelsea. The club had grown suspicious after a dip in his form on the pitch and increasingly unreliable behaviour off it. Mutu left Chelsea with a record of 10 goals in 38 appearances in all competitionsIt came back negative. But another, carried out by the usual authorities two months later, showed cocaine in Mutu's system.
Borussia Dortmund will host the famous club Bayern Munchen. We have a game between two leaders in Bundesliga. Last year Borussia did win in their h2h game with score 2-0. It is very possible to see the such result again here. My bet will be on hosts how AH + 0.5 . A draw is a possible also in this duel. Our teams didn't play draw games at the lasts 6 matches played. Both team struggle for the title in the league. A draw will be a good result for hosts also .
Having come close to promotion last season, reaching the play-off final, AFC Fylde are struggling this time around. Sunday's visitors have lost each of their last two games and now sit in a lowly 21st position in the National League. They're two points from safety.
Slonim started this season with a draw against Volna and it was 0:0. They didn't play bad but also they didn't show anything special there. They play the normal games when their opponents played pretty well match against a better opponents. Orsha played at home against Lida and they were underdogs there. They scored three goals and conceded two but against a team like Lida, they showed fantastic plays. Slonim is an average team and in the head to head matches they usually lost against Osha like 1:3. I think that there is a chance to see similar results in this clash. Osha should win and it is my pick
