FC Rouen have been having a fantastic time in France's fourth tier this season with them currently four points clear at the top of the league despite only being promoted last year. They have won ten of their fifteen games so far and have done so by virtue of their incredible defence which has conceded the least goals in the division. They've conceded just nine times with three clean sheets in their last four matches.

But, having worked with him for England and knowing him on a bit more of a personal level, I know his drive and focus. He doesn't drink alcohol, he doesn't eat bad food - he never has a day off.

Some teams press aggressively but don't have the ball much and play direct, and other teams have the ball but don't press. We try to do both, which is not easy. We're trying to play our game and the key to it is it looks simple. And if it looks simple it means that it's probably very complicated. Simple or not, Postecoglou's approach has won titles and plaudits in most places he has worked.
Odd are almost equal for the home or away win a bit higher on Minsk to win but going down since they appear and reason is very good one, Gorodeja is very defensive minded type of team and not really all that dominant even in home games, and their last 4 home games with Minsk which is very good counter-attacking side on the road ended 3 times with Minsk winning with the same score 2-1 and once a 1-1 draw.

In the midst of all of this, Dens Park managing director John Nelms apparently told club secretary Eric Drysdale to \"hold off resubmitting their vote\". Following so far?One of the biggest questions remains - why? Why hold off? Why not resubmit the vote that fellow Championship clubs were told had been submitted? Why has Nelms, or anyone at the club, not publicly clarified their position, and what now for the validity of the vote? And, crucially, if they have changed their mind from a no vote, what has made them? Dundee's voting slip, signed by managing director John Nelms, though the SPFL say they only received it after being told to ignore any Dundee submissionWhy did the SPFL announce an incomplete ballot return?A topic very much for the conspiracy theorists and cynics, one would suggest.
