League round-up: Shelvey halts Boro progress

Third-placed Middlesbrough were held 2-2 by Blackpool, Boro's sixth Championship draw in nine home games as stalemates hinder their progress. Scott McDonald twice gave Boro the lead, but Jonjo Shelvey's fifth goal in four games made Pool's point. "The result is frustrating – but not the way we played," said Boro's manager, Tony Mowbray.

Jimmy Adamson: Footballer and manager who led Burnley to their greatest successes

It is a question which can never be answered, but it is a compelling one in any examination of Jimmy Adamson's life and work. Would England have won the World Cup in 1966 if the unobtrusive but authoritative North-easterner had accepted the invitation to become manager of the national team? After he rejected the opportunity, the job of replacing Walter Winterbottom went to Alf Ramsey instead, and the result was the most glorious triumph in the history of the English game.

Ian Holloway: Wagers of sin make me sick to the stomach

We have lost faith in the bankers and politicans, please don't let it happen in sport as well.

Sport should be sacred and what those three did totally abuses what we all go into it for.
