And Sam Slocombe has just signed for Notts County:

At least Notts now have new owners, unlike Bury and Bolton. But they have now taken down the big sign saying 'World's Oldest Football League Club'.

90'+4'
Attempt missed. Jonathan Obika (St. Mirren) right footed shot from the centre of the box is too high.

Obika's contribution to Saturday's game against Hibernian

From Sunday's game though....

"All the man of the match candidates in this game were in St Mirren's black and white. Ryan Flynn in the middle of the park, big Jon Obika - an immediate cult hero with the support - and goalkeeper Vaclav Hladky were terrific."

I sit next to a St Mirren fan at work so gave a fairly neutral opinion of Obika before he signed (I always thought he was ok for us when I saw him)

I think there may be a typo in that statement.

Let's see how many he bangs in this season in that apology for a league. 😞

Chris Wilder wants a clear out at Sheffield United.
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/20 ... ers-money/

players mentioned include Samir Carruthers, Ricky Holmes and Jake Wright.

Not surprising really as some of these have come from League 1 and 2 levels and are now at a Premier League club.

Hmm - if Sheffield Utd tell Chris he isn't in their plans post-Christmas, will he waive any severance pay?

Am I correct that Jake Wright played no football at all last season? Was he injured? Massive waste of talent if not.
