Best – QPR. Really friendly and helpful staff, which isn’t the case at every stadium. Great commentary position and with the stands so close to the pitch, whether you are a commentator or a fan you feel right in the action.

Worst – York City. Outdated stadium, with broken benches in the press box and general lack of facilities whether you are a fan or commentator. Sadly, a warm welcome is also lacking. The sooner they move the better.

Martinez on Sunderland


Everton need to be at their 'very best' to beat Sunderland - Martinez

Both Newcastle and Norwich will be hoping Everton can return to form against Sunderland on Wednesday. A Toffees defeat will send both the Magpies and the Canaries down.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez earlier dismissed the notion that he has to "win back" his players following their recent poor form.

BBC Radio Lancashire's Andy Bayes:

"My favourite ground is the City of Manchester Stadium. I had the pleasure of commentating on the first match there when they played Barcelona and won 2-1. I don’t go very often these days, but certainly the atmosphere has improved since those early days.

"Maine Road had its own character though, and some fans still miss it very much.

"Anfield and St James’ Park are also fabulous places to visit in terms of big match atmosphere. European nights at Anfield were very special indeed. It was an honour to be behind the mic for the 3-1 victory against Olympiakos."

'Keane would be a success'


Roy Keane

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon says Roy Keane's "hard but fair" approach would be successful at the Glasgow club.

One bookmaker has suspended betting on the Republic of Ireland assistant taking over from outgoing Celtic boss Ronny Deila, although it is understood the club are still interviewing candidates and no decision is imminent.

"He's hard but fair. What you see is really is what you get," said Gordon. "If he was appointed, I'm sure he would do well and he would be successful."

Brighton midfielder Dale Stephens, 26, will serve a three-match suspension after claims of wrongful dismissal and excessive punishment were both rejected, the Football Association announces. 

Stephens was dismissed for a following a challenge on Middlesbrough's Gaston Ramirez which left the Uruguayan requiring stitches during last weekend's Championship game.

Boro ended a seven-year Premier League absence by drawing a tense and nervy promotion decider 1-1 at the Riverside.  

Hammers can move to 'next level'


Trevor Brooking, who made 643 appearances for the Hammers between 1967 and 1984, also says moving to the Olympic Stadium next season gives them a great chance to move to the "next level" but warned away teams will be inspired by the new venue.

He added: "Opposition will all want to perform well in their first appearance and that makes each home game tough."

"It's when it's time to leave that people will think 'what are we going to do'."

England's Joe Root completed a double century for Yorkshire before rain washed out most of the third day's play against Surrey at Headingley.

He brought up the fourth double century of his career from 232 balls faced, with a single off Rampaul, and hit a six and 22 fours.  

Root took his score from 190 not out to 213 before paceman Ravi Rampaul (4-153) had him caught at mid-off.

Only 13.2 overs of play were possible, with the defending champions advancing to 557-6, a lead of 227.

Having drawn their opening three matches, Yorkshire still have a chance of victory if the weather improves on the final day.

Britain's Johanna Konta reached the Italian Open second round with a 6-1 6-2 win over Sweden's Johanna Larsson and the 24-year-old will face Italy's Roberta Vinci in the next round.

So how is she adapting to the clay court season?

"I think it’s definitely a time question," she told BBC Radio 5 live. "I’m accumulating quite a few new experiences right now. I’d never played Madrid before and I’ve never been here either so in some ways I’m quite a newbie to this.

"I just need to do my time on the surface, put in as many hours as I can and really enjoy being part of the clay court season. to begin with."

BBC Radio Cumbria’s ISDN line at Workington’s Borough Park came down through a hole in the roof at the back of the stand and so you had to stand up holding the ISDN kit in one hand and trying to read notes at the same time. In terms of good places to visit, Blyth Spartans takes a bit of beating. I turned up there to be greeted by a steward who insisted I park my car inside the ground behind the main stand. I could never see that happening in the Football League.

The 27-year-old has not played since September and was omitted fromGatland's 35-man tour squad.

"We've spoken to Leigh and we've picked a standby list and he's part of that," said Gatland.

"He understands he does need some games and he's happy to be on a standby list."

My favourite away ground has always been Villa Park, there is something so historic about the place and it has character so many of the modern identikit stadiums lack. The grandeur of the Holte End is still an imposing sight on arrival, the staff are warm and friendly, the food is exceptionally tasty and the atmosphere is always great, especially with the away fans so close to the pitch on one side - Manchester United's great run of success there definitely helps too.

Special mention has to go to Craven Cottage which is hard to beat on a nice day, and Rochdale's Spotland for the indie tunes of DJ Dave Sweetmore.

Jurgen Klopp news conference

Liverpool v Chelsea (Weds, 20:00 BST)

Liverpool could win the Europa League and qualify for the Champions League next season. Or, in a worst case scenario, they could lose the Europa League final and finish out of the places to secure a spot in the competition next season depending on how the next three games go.

"What I would prefer next Thursday is that it we have won the Europa League and beaten Chelsea and West Brom in the league," said Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

"I like this all or nothing but only because we have the chance to get all. 

"If we lose next two games I will still go to Basel confident."

So how is Jurgen Klopp weighing up his team selection as his side face Chelsea and West Brom in the top  before the Europa League final against Sevilla in Basel on 18 May.

"We bring the fittest players," he said. "Most of the players who will play tomorrow have had a normal week.

"Then we will see who is fit for Sunday against West Brom and then we make a squad for Basel. What I learned this year is to rotate. 

"You need rhythm and we will try to give the boys as much rhythm as possible."

Jurgen Klopp news conference

Liverpool v Chelsea (Weds, 20:00 BST)

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is asked about his plans for next season and some of the rumours around the players linked with the Reds.

"The Chelsea game has no influence on my thoughts for next season. It is a big game," he said.

"We think about transfers, of course, and everything but 99% of all things in newspapers are 1% true - not all newspapers, sorry. 

"A lot of rumours are very far away from the actual thing. Sometimes I do not even know the name of the player that is supposed to be coming to Liverpool. We will do our work and say something when there is something to say.

"We have to improve and if we can then we can have a really good season next season."

"Yesterday, he trained - not with the team - and it looked good. He was only passing and running but looked OK. 

"It's nine days until the Europa League final and we will have to see (if he is fit for that) but it is 100% he will be fit for Euro 2016 in France."

I was commentating on Sheffield Wednesday with former Owls defender Darren Purse (a Millwall fan) and he brought his dad to the game. Wednesday scored and the Millwall fans in front decided to take issue with our (my) northern roots. 

This led to Purse’s dad telling the supporters he was a (censored) Millwall fan. It would’ve been quite amusing had it not played out a little too close to our microphones for comfort. Fortunately Millwall equalised and everyone went home as friends.
