The Championship used to be the term given to the sides winning England’s top flight at the end of the season.
That all changed in 1992 with the inception of the Premier League, but arguably winning the Championship now is more lucrative than it ever was back then. It might be England’s Second Division, but the prize on offer is huge. It is believed promotion to the Premier League is worth around £170m. To some degree, it can make or break a team’s fortunes for many, many years, with smaller clubs such a Stoke City, Bournemouth and Burnley all achieving promotion and building success on the back of that.

England midfielder Declan Rice has matched a long-term record following his goal in the big win over Iceland on Wednesday night. The West Ham United was one of the scorers as England beat their opponents 4-0 at home in a UEFA Nations League outing.
Rice opened the floodgate of goals for his team to become the first player in 90 years to score for England after playing for another country. The feat was last managed by Gordon Hodgson in 1930. Declan Rice was making his 13th
appearance for the Three Lions in the last 18 months and he capitalised on the sleepy Iceland defence to head home a quickly taken 20th
minute free-kick from the impressed Phil Foden who plays his club football for Manchester City.

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour believes the Gunners should look into the signing of John Stones from Manchester City this summer. The England international has fallen out-of-favour at the Cityzens over the past year and he was restricted to only 16 appearances during the course of the previous Premier League campaign.
Hence, he has been touted to head for the exit door this summer and Parlour feels the Gunners should compete with West Ham United for his services as he could be available for an affordable price, he told TalkSPORT: “That would be a great deal for West Ham if they can get him for £20m, especially when you look at Ake who is going to City for £40m. Arsenal are desperate for a centre-half… why don’t you take your chance and try and go in and bid for Stones? He’s had a bad time in recent years and he hasn’t really gone to where they thought he might go to.”

England international Harry Kane has said that Tottenham Hotspur have an advantage over their league rivals as they make a late push for the Champions League places. The north London side are presently seven points behind the top four but the fifth spot could also assure them a Champions League berth, suppose Manchester City’s European ban is upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
They are currently only five points behind fifth-placed Manchester United at the moment and Kane feels the club have a good chance of making ground, given the club only need to focus on the league games without any other disturbances, he told: “From our point of view we are not in any of the other competitions so we have got nine games to concentrate on picking up as many points and try and get into the Champions League spots. So at least all our focus is going to be on one competition. It’s been a chance for me to get fit, it has been six months since I have played a game so I haven’t done that since I was about five years old.”
