    Pride Park was valued at 瞿80m as the plans are to update it to be more than just a football stadium that is used about 30 days per year. The plan is to use it for other events that would increase revenue and the value of the property by getting use out of the venue for up to 100 days of the year.

    Ive not heard anything about backdating, I think thats being confused with Villa or Wednesday who did something like that.

    Saracens broke the rules quite clearly. Derby had their accounts checked and signed off by the EFL. Now theyve changed their minds and are looking to punish Derby for it.

    Im pretty certain that we wont get punished after it goes to court. Certainly not to the extent thats being reported.

    The charge is based on the EFL making their own valuation of our stadium which is lower than the independent valuation we got when we sold it to our owner. I know it's all shady as fuck, but I guess if the valuation we got was truly independent then this charge won't actually come to anything.

    Never a dull moment this season. Apart from performances on the pitch.

    Most players use something like Trusox these days and cut the foot off their official kit socks and wear over the top.

    There is some sort of kit rule saying that players should be wearing full official kit colours, so there was some dispute over players using these socks under the kit colours. Liverpool seem to have added extra white to their socks this year to allow players to get away with it, but I noticed how high some of the white socks went too.

    I only really know Hokkaido as I visit my in-laws there every year. First two weeks of April is probably a bit too cold for most of the routes Ive done there though.

    Others will be more qualified than me to talk about the climate and roads on Honsh贖, Shikoku or Ky贖sh贖 but in general Ive found it very easy to plan routes and find my way around with very limited knowledge. Get yourself sorted with a data SIM card or portable Wi-fi hotspot and itll be easy to navigate.

    Enjoy the cities and the cleanliness and find some nice routes that take you across the mountain passes. Id be tempted to look at a route that will take you from Kyoto to Tokyo and going through places like Osaka, Nara, Nagoya, Shizuoka and Yokohama. Loss of touristy stuff to do in those places and its a popular Route that will take you past Fuji. South coast shouldnt be too chilly around that time of the year. I think.

    Been quiet on here for a while cos football has been a bit shit recently and work is killing me. Would like to get to the footy drinking session (without driving) if its still going ahead though.

    Re: Derby drinkers. Theres obviously a lot of stuff that hasnt been published and a lot of rumours flying about. I believe Keogh was sacked for gross misconduct as he couldnt fulfil his contractual obligations as a player due to an injury that wasnt in the line of duty and was avoidable had he thought about his actions. The statements and leaking of information about the dismissal seem to be coming from his camp which leads me to believe hes not getting good advice. I think Id be willing to take a severe pay cut (to just 瞿thousands per week) and get some top quality healthcare and rehab if it meant keeping my long term job. Sure it would sting a bit compared to my regular take home salary, but its better than what hes now getting. Nothing.

    The club has punished the other two named players the most they can within their contracts without firing them. I believe its an 8 week fine and more community service on top of what the court dished out. Im not sure what punishments the other players may have received, the only other one Ive heard involved was one our brightest academy prospects and hes not been involved in the first team squad since it all happened. Mason Bennett is also now playing for the U23 team (who are coincidentally top of the U23 Premier League at the moment).

    Anyway, it was nice to beat a really shit Boro team today and glad that Saville finally saw a red card after several shit challenges against us over the years.
