Other News

Charlton's protests took a strange turn following their defeat to Burnley as a number of fans decided to destroy the pitch side fan's sofa during their pitch invasion. Other protests included an occupation of the directors' box and a sit-in protest against owner Roland Dutchelet.

Jose Riga has resigned as Charlton boss just moments after their 3-0 defeat by Burnley. In his press conference, he denied that it was because of their relegation to League One, instead indicating it was down to the state of the club and its structure.

QPR have released this video unveiling their new club crest. (yes this is a official club video)

Daisy's Dream

As I'm sure many of you know, Reading fan Nathan Saleh bravely walked all the way up to Blackburn for charity. Although he's completed his task, fundraising for Daisy's Dream is still underway. Please give generously!
