  • Tommy Conway – Bristol City’s New Kid on the Block Spearheading Success

    Bristol City’s start to the 2022-23 season looked like it would mirror the past few dire campaigns at Ashton Gate, the Robins stagnating under Nigel Pearson with lower-half finishes in the Championship expected.

  • João Pedro: Watford’s Brazilian Talisman in Attack

    Almost every season in recent memory has brought to light a great gift given to the Championship and its fans. Through the combination of a small enough sample size of top-level quality and the ambivalence of Premier League clubs has allowed a handful of far superior players to slip through the net and into the…

  • Ellis Simms – A Future Everton Star In The Making?

    Starring out on loan away from Everton with Hearts and Blackpool, Ellis Simms might’ve expected some first-team opportunities under Frank Lampard this season.

    Reading Football Club, where to begin? Last season saw the club’s 150th anniversary, opportunities handed to numerous youth players and survival guaranteed for another year in the EFL Championship. Those are the positives.    The negatives? A look at the table shows survival by an uncomfortably slim margin. Just 41 points, good enough for 21st…

  • Jayson Molumby: Once Ball-Winner, Now Ball-Shepherd for West Bromwich Albion

    Brave, resilient, industrious. Not many players possess such uncoachable assets, let alone at the age of only 18. Those were the attributes that encouraged Chris Hughton to hand Jayson Molumby his Brighton and Hove Albion debut back in 2017, where he played 90 minutes in a Carabao Cup second-round victory over Barnet.   The midfielder…
