Smart draw, it's at home too so probably get to see Tanner at last after we flog him to them next month.

BTW, anyone got their head round this EFL acronym yet that's suddenly popping up everywhere and making you think you're not looking at the right sport let alone competition....

The EPL - wazzat? - has been driving me bonkers since the Barclay's Premiership was formed as *everyone* in the Middle East simply refers to it by this godawful acronym.

And now that cancer has reached the football league..... it makes me want to go and twat anyone and everyone who uses it.

They can leave and join the League of Wales of they prefer.

The Welsh teams joined the English league back in ye-olde days because there was no league in Wales.
