  • If you find updates posted in some other thread then post them here as well, but be sure to credit the original poster.
  • If there is news that is particularly significant (eg. someone scores a big goal, someone gets injured, etc.) then feel free to begin a new thread on that topic in order to draw greater attention or start a discussion, but also post that news here.

Adekugbe is not in the 18 for Brighton today against Sheffield Wednesday. Guess we wait and see what happens with him in the next few months.

I think he has the ability to play at that level, but he's stuck behind some very good players at Brighton.

Hoilett started for Cardiff against Burton. Played until the 79th minute. His replacement scored the winning goal. 1-0 Cardiff. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38619297

Leutwiler keeps a clean sheet for Shrewsbury against Oldham. 1-0 win for Shrews. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38619447

 

Jackson on the bench for Walsall against Bristol Rovers. Comes in in the 65th minute and scores in 68th! Had other chances too. 3-1 win for Walsall.

Kris Twardek started for Braintree in a 1-1 draw at Forest Green Rovers.

Ricky Gomes started for Arbroath in a 2-1 loss to Annan Athletic.

Haber and Dundee fall to a disappointing 2-0 loss in the Scottish Cup against Championship bottom-feeders St. Mirren, as the big man played 90.

Aird started and played 90 for Falkirk as they also fell 2-0 in the Scottish Cup to Greenock Morton, Gasparotto stayed on the bench. Aird played at RW in his debut.

With that win Besiktas goes first, finally overtaking suprise side Istanbul Basaksehir, and with a bit of a spread over Fenerbace and Galatasaray. Rooting for them to win Turkey again and seed high in Champions for next year.

The Turkish champions do not get an automatic seed in the group stage.

Besiktas' run in Europe this year has moved them up to 54th from 62nd in UEFA's club coefficient ranking. It is still too early to say, but if they continue to advance, and depending on who else qualifies for next year's tournaments, they could move up from Pot 4 to Pot 3.

Spoken by a true master!

They also probably have the easiest tie in the round of 32 in Europa League, if they go deeper that will help their ranking too. 

To be fair, they really should have qualified in Champions, they screwed up so dumbly that last day. 

Am I right that Atiba has just one year on the contract now, or is it longer?
