Oh Donny? Not been a great season for them, despite all the dosh they've spent. Can't stand Diouf either, absolute thug.

My local side (Swindon) currently top of League 2 so looking like they'll be playing each other next season!

You've got it in one! Terrible, terrible season for them.

Good news for your home team though.

Yet again - they've been on the cusp of relegation out of League 2 for a few seasons now - tonight's game with Hereford is a biggie.

Been following the League 2 relegation battle with interest as Plymouth have been down there all season. Both my parents from Plymouth and all my family still live out there so follow them quite closely. Would be a travesty for them to drop out of the league completely having been in the Championship just two seasons ago. They've been the senior team in and around Devon for years but now Exeter are above them and Torquay are looking good for promotion as well.

Thankfully despite all the financial problems they've found a bit of form at the right time and have finally managed to steer clear.

Swindon vs Plymouth this weekend though, so local side vs parents home side (and cousin's team). Both need a few points to secure promotion/survival respectively. Think a draw would be nice!

On a sad note......................


All weekend football in Italy was called off on Saturday following the death of Livorno midfielder Piermario Morosini, a player whose own private life had been plagued by a series of tragedies.

The 25-year-old, on loan from Serie A side Udinese, collapsed on the pitch during a second division game at Pescara and was later pronounced dead in hospital.

It continued a tragic family history that saw Morosini's parents die while he was a teenager, after which his disabled brother also committed suicide.

He is survived by an older sister, who is handicapped.

I wonder if some of that outpouring of grief for Fabrice Muamba is now directed towards this poor family in Italy.   The whole family appear to be caught up in such tragic circumstances. no

Heard about the heart attack, didn't realise his background though. The video of it so upsetting, the referee took much too long to even notice despite one of the Livorno players screaming at him to stop the game. The lad was desperately trying to get up whilst having the heart attack.

It's all so saddening. RIP. Frown

Edit to say that Trevor Francis also suffered a heart attack yesterday and is currently in hospital.
