Which manager will be sacked first? The sack race odds for the Premier League, 2021/22

At the start of every Premier League season, debate will rage about the first manager to be sacked. Some seasons will have more departures than others, with only four managers losing their job in the 2020/21 campaign but eight men moving on during the previous 12 months (not including close-season departures) and 13 either being sacked or leaving during 2017/18.

Five of the worst debuts in Premier League history

Millwall have so often been Championship’s draw specialists – but now is not the time to judge Gary Rowett’s side

No club drew more matches than Millwall last season – 17. And the Lions actually have one more than at the same stage of the 2020-21 Championship campaign. So matches ending all square isn’t anything new for the South Londoners, who drew 0-0 at Swansea on Wednesday. They are consistent in that respect. They also had 17 draws in the 2019-20 season, the joint most with West Bromwich Albion, and just converting a couple of those into victories would have put them above Swansea and into the play-offs.

Adventures in Football #27: Damson Parkway (Solihull Moors)

Adventures in Football #27: Damson Parkway (Solihull Moors) Solihull Moors are the Birmingham conurbation’s #6 team. They’ve only been in existence for 14 years and came about when Moor Green and Solihull Borough merged. Moor Green had been one of the Midlands most successful non-league sides anyway but had stadium issues after their Moorlands stadium was burned down in an arson attack in 2005. Damson Parkway was the home of Solihull Borough. Solihull Borough were less successful but had a ground and financial stability so the two clubs decided to merge and entered the National League North, taking Moor Green’s spot in that league.

Arsenal must rival Spurs for Sam Johnstone amid contract reports

Arsenal look set to be on the lookout for a new goalkeeper next summer, with the Daily Mail reporting that Bernd Leno could leave ahead of the final year of his contract. Leno lost his place to Aaron Ramsdale at the weekend. And if that is a sign of what is to come this season, it surely makes sense for all parties for the 29-year-old to be moved on.
