Well done Huddersfield, I'm not a particular fan but they are a Yorkshire team ! Pity Bradford City missed out on promotion

A lot of people tipped Huddersfield to go down (I was one of them), so they've done very well to get promotion. There's going to be two very intriguing match-ups now - against Liverpool which would put David Wagner (former manager of B Dortmund's reserve team) up against Jurgen Klopp, and Spurs away which will be a return to Wembley.
Hopefully we can have another crack at promotion next season, as long as we keep hold of Jaap Staam (which I think we will). But I think we need to try and go up automatically as we never have any luck in the play-offs
After winning the FA Cup, it looks like Arsene Wenger will be staying at Arsenal, signing a 2-year contract.
Also noticed that French team Lorient (similar name to Leyton Orient ) have been relegated as well from the top flight...

So close... England got away with one there, with Scotland almost beating them...
There's a proposal to make changes to the National League play-offs, which would involve more teams:
It'll probably be rejected - teams play enough games as it is, plus on the basis of this season, it wouldn't be fair on Tranmere if they had've lost to Barrow in the play-off final, who finished in 7th, 20 points behind. Then you've got the issue of clubs meeting the minimum ground capacity criteria to be able to take part in the play-offs, which was why Darlington (who finished 5th in the NL North) were unable to take part in the play-offs.
My prediction was wrong - most teams have voted in favour of this proposal, so there will be six teams taking part in the National League play-offs from next season.
I suppose if Leyton Orient were to finish 7th and go up, I shan't complain!

Good to see Leyton Orient now signing some new players, plus we've got Barry Hearn back as president and Martin Ling as director of football
And we've appointed a new manager - Steve Davis.
With Jimmy White as his assistant... no I'm joking! It's not that Steve Davis - this is the former Crewe manager.
Just 26 days until the new season starts, where Orient will open up with a tough away match at Sutton.
