McKenna led Ipswich to promotion
On Saturday, former United coach Kieran McKenna led his Ipswich team to the championship, when the team beat Exeter 6-0 in the penultimate round of the league.
The win ensures Ipswich drop four points off third place at the Sheffield Wednesday table, and with just one game left in the season, that top spot is therefore uncatchable.
Along with Ipswich, Plymouth is also ready for next season’s Championship matches. They are one point ahead of McKenna & co.
The top two teams from League One advance directly, while the third to sixth places must go to the playoffs.
On the road. #itfc

Emad won the award
Imed Diallo was not named the Championship’s Young Player of the Season, an award he was nominated for, but the plaster on the wound is at least his Sunderland name.
Sunderland has a young squad, so it wasn’t without competition there either, but it was no surprise that the Ivorian ended up winning.
At the moment, Sunderland is in an important sixth place, and with a good end to the season it can end up in the playoffs for promotion to the Premier League.
🏆 Presenting the Young Player of the Year…
What a season, what a player.

Middleton Patel to Blackburn
Goalkeeper Safia Middleton-Patel is going on an emergency loan to Blackburn Rovers (who play in the second tier) for the rest of the season.
The 18-year-old sat on the bench on Wednesday night when Blackburn beat Lewes, so the only game she is likely to play is Sunday’s game away to Sunderland.

Midfielder Raphael Varane will turn 30 today, 25 April.
Happy birthday Raphael!
The Frenchman is currently out due to injury, but I hope he will be back before long.
In any case, Erik ten Hag has stated that he hopes to get a centre-back at least for the FA Cup Final against Manchester City.

Tottenham manager fired
Christian Stellini was sent off by Tottenham after the weekend’s embarrassing 6-1 loss at home to Newcastle United. Stellini was signed in March, following the sacking of Antonio Conte.
United will meet Tottenham already on Thursday, and then former player Ryan Mason will lead the team. The 31-year-old is taking over as manager on an interim basis.
Sunday’s performance against Newcastle was completely unacceptable. It was shocking to see, as Tottenham wrote about their team sites.
Christian leaves his current position with the coaching staff.
Ryan Mason will take over coaching duties immediately. Ryan knows the club and the players very well.
