Weekend Wind-up #28: feeling a bit cheeky, so here we are...

So the missus is out for the evening, which means that your loyal correspondent could take more than a wee nip. With the evening free, I thought we'd have a go at our rivals in a bit of a preview of the weekend's action. It's not as if there's been any notable midweeks news to prompt this, after all. As for the title, "Weekly Wind-up", I'll admit that I kind of painted myself into a corner with the whole "Rivals' Roundup" angle, and regular readers, should they exist, will know much of a sucker I am for alliteration (and, I might add, in general. Ask the wallet inspector). Plus, we get to thrown in the idea of winding up our rivals, should any of their fans find their way here somehow. Well, that's more than enough throat-clearing. Let's get on with it.

Rivals' Roundup #27: bit of a mixed bag there...

Ok, so the week brought us some nice news aside from the fact that Leeds had to sack Bielsa. Nice guy. Good coach. However, apparently, losing to the side that lost to Burnley is a bridge too far. Elsewhere, other clubs are running scared, hiding behind the "EFL Cup" or other imaginary reasons, leaving us with a weekend free from dramatic results over other clubs. As such, we'll have to wait until next weekend for a full set of results to regale ourselves. Fortunately, there are a few nifty nuggets to nibble on, so let's dive right in, shall we?
