I’m not sure what formation Everton are playing today. It looks like McNeil is left back, but then the composition of the midfield is difficult to train. Reply to a postcard.

GOAL! Stockport 1-0 Salford (grudge 1-1): Stockport have taken the lead against Salford in the second leg of their League Two play-off semi-final to make it 1-1 on aggregate. A cracking nod from Olaofe.

Meanwhile… Brentford beat Spurs 2-1. You can enjoy all the action with the great John Brewin.

What is it? The World Cup Under starts today and you want to learn more? Thankfully, I’ve been tasked with finding out what Bobby Mimms is up to these days.

Anfield will wave goodbye to Bobby Firmino today. The Brazilian is a cult hero in Liverpool, loved by everyone in the red half of the city. He decided to go back a while and he will not be short of offers. Naby Keita, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will also leave in the summer.

Get in the mood for all this hotness the elite series action with 10 things to look out for.


This can be the elite series ends. If Arsenal lose, the title is City’s. If Manchester United win and Liverpool lose, the race for the top four is over, while wins for Nottingham Forest and Everton could effectively end the relegation battle.

But we have to be optimists and hope that today’s matches will enable a fantastic finals day next Sunday. If we’re just left to find out who finishes sixth and seventh, then it could be the wettest of squibs.

We have to assume that Liverpool will beat Aston Villa, Manchester United will miss out on Vitality. Forest and Everton have gotten used to losing these big games against Arsenal and Wolves respectively. Here’s hoping there’s still a lot on the line next weekend or we might as well give up on football altogether.

And before we forget…Fulham play Crystal Palace. It doesn’t get more exciting than that!

A fun afternoon awaits.
