Watch as West Ham boss Slaven Bilic describes the differences between the club's current home at Upton Park and their new ground at the Olympic Stadium.

"There will be more people but it is impossible to make a replica of this atmosphere," Bilic tells BBC Sport.

"It happens to every club when they move to bigger stadiums - you lose something, because it will be impossible to make the Olympic Stadium a fortress. Here it is intimidating for the away team."

BreakingColeman names 29-man training squad


We were only expecting a 28-man squad, but with Joe Ledley an injury doubt after going off in Crystal Palace's 2-1 win over Stoke, Chris Coleman has named a 29-man squad for Wales' pre-Euro 2016 training camp.

The big news is that Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has been omitted from the squad.

But don't panic Wales fans, Bale's exclusion is because of Real's appearance in the Champions League final.

Coleman has until 31 May to name his final 23-man squad for the European Championship.

Defoe for England?

More from Big Sam's press conference...

Jermain Defoe's goalscoring exploits this season have handed Sunderland a Premier League lifeline, but can he make a late bid for the England squad for Euro 2016?

"I would have to have a word with Jermain about that," said Allardyce. "Has it crossed Roy's mind? I don't know.

"His performances and goals this season may have caused Roy to have a little look at him. If he's there, he knows how much experience he has got and can do it at that level. 

"For the first time for a few years he has consistently played week in, week out and delivered in a position people questioned that he could - as a central striker on his own. 

"He's done all that in what's been a struggle for us this year. Eighteen goals in all competitions - it's a great credit to him, his dedication and his ability in front of goal."

Burnley to finally get trophy


Burnley midfielder Joey Barton is keen to show off the Championship trophy to the fans tonight. Finally.

And he was not too impressed with the Football League's decision to not have the trophy present at Burnley's last game away at Charlton on Saturday.

The Clarets went into Saturday's game top of the league, but the trophy instead was at the game between second-placed Middlesbrough and third-placed Brighton.

On Sunday, Barton tweeted...

Trophy should have been there yesterday. We earned it. 46 games. 23 undefeated. And lifting blow up/cardboard trophies? Shambles.

Bairstow and Root in fine fettle


Yorkshire and England pair Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root having been making hay at Headingley against Surrey, which bodes well for the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka.

"A beautiful day on sunny Wearside with a joyous mood to match at the Academy of Light. Could the weekend have gone any better for Sunderland who are now just two points away from securing their place in the Premier League next season?

"The result would also guarantee the club elite football for a 10th consecutive season. 

"Having been up here last week you can feel the belief among the players and you just sense they will complete the job in hand with a game to spare - under the lights on Wednesday at the Stadium of Light surrounded by a wall of sound.

"On top of that Jermain Defoe is within three goals of his best league return. Eighteen is the most he's scored in the top-flight. Will he get a chance for England this summer?"

Some quotes from Celtic assistant manager John Collins on his decision to leave at the end of the season. "I came with Ronny so it’s only right I leave with him," says Collins.

"A new manager will come in and bring his own staff with him. I’ll go on some summer holidays, get some sunshine then we’ll see.

"It’s disappointing to leave but a lot of people would be delighted to have what I’ve had. I’ve played for the team and got two league titles as part of management.

"There have been lots of highs, some lows, but we’ve got five in a row. There are not too many clubs in Europe who have five in a row. We’ve got it and the target now is six."
