Get comfy Hokies, Coastal driver's seat is all yours

Obviously it didn't go very well, as the Panthers played one of their worst games of the Wannstedt era and got hammered 35-10 by a very mediocre version of the Mountaineers.

Wenger is a rarity among Premier League managers in vocalising his support for introducing the kind of rail seating that is commonplace in Germany and has been introduced at Celtic this season without any issues so far.

Sam Bradford looks forward to return to Philly
