Yankee Doodle Dandy

Birmingham City and Huddersfield Town have been relegated to League One next season, both clubs with American owners.

Blues were sixth in thr Championship earlier in the season when they sacked John Eustace as he was apparently not trendy enough for the owners.

Living up to their reputation as the Millwall of the Midlands, Blues fans invaded the pitch and fought with stewards after today's match.

The American owners have bought a site for a new stadium at Bordesley alongside the railway line to New Street so they won't want to stay in League One.

Huddersfield are a team we have played in three different divisions in living memory and are likely to challenge for promotion.

Rotherham have put their faith in Steve Evans, the most charming manager in the EFL, to restore their flagging fortunes and burnish their reputation as a yo-yo club.

Wrexham with their £20m revenue also have American owners and have global appeal, ranking as the second most poopular team in the United States:

To those who say League One is a poxy league, it's going to be even more competitive next season.

Many Charlton fans come from four or even five generations of supporters, but my late father and I represent two generations, albeit spanning over 100 years of support.

Next week I am hoping to see my great-granddaughter, but her dad is an egg chaser.   Having not succeeded in professional trials in the UK he has signed for a Spanish club and played for them against Barcelona last weekend and, of course, three generations of my family were there.
