And just like that the football season is back and everyone is happy. Welcome to Talk of the Turnstile, season 2014/15, Issue 4

With the Premier League just 1 day away there has been some huge news regarding Crystal Palace. Rumours began Thursday morning that Tony Pulis was set to leave the Eagles due to a brake down of relationship with the club’s chairman. Well, it was confirmed late that evening that he had parted ways with Crystal Palace. What now for Palace? Malky Mackay has quickly been instilled as favourite to take over at Selhurst Park.

It just goes to show how cutthroat football can be at time. Huddersfield sacked their manager after just one game into the new season, talk about being given the time to progress.
