Skysports - Vignal on trial with Blues
-Birmingham have taken former Liverpool and Portsmouth defender Gregory Vignal on trial.
- The 28-year-old left-back, who has been released by Ligue 1 side Lens, will feature in the Blues' friendly match against Sporting Gijon on Saturday.
- Alex McLeish is currently looking at options for the position due to fitness problems for David Murphy and Franck Queudrue, and he has turned to Vignal after seemingly missing out on a loan move for Arsenal's Armand Traore.
- Vignal recently had a trial at Championship side QPR, but boss Jim Magilton decided against pursuing the deal." Skysports

- The 18-year-old Dutch left back joins the Sky Blues on loan until December 31.
- Aanholt, in his third year at Chelsea following a move from Dutch Eredivisie outfit PSV Eindhoven, made 12 reserve appearances for the London club last season and was the highest appearances holder in the reserves at Stamford Bridge the year before.
- More to come… Coventry

- Reserve team defender Patrick van Aanholt has today joined Coventry City on loan until 31 December.
- It is the Dutch Under 19's first temporary move since arriving from PSV Eindhoven in 2007, having appeared 27 times for the reserves so far, as well as being a key member of the Youth Cup run in 2007/08.
The 18-year-old is still awaiting his first team debut. Chelsea

The Guardian/Josh Ashdown Championship Preview
"....QPR have again splashed the cash with the £3.5m signing of Argentine midfielder Alejandro Faurlin but their recent track record with foreign imports (Samuel Di Carmine, Emmanuel Ledesma, Daniel Parejo were last summer's arrivals) is not great and it's hard to see them troubling the top two. The play-offs will most likely also be beyond them, just as they will be for Preston, who over-achieved so brilliantly last year." Guardian

- Whilst Jim Magilton has been busy in the transfer market this summer, bringing in Alejandro Faurlin, Adel Taarabt and Alessandro Pellicori, off the field, the work has been equally impressive.
- The introduction of a new Access Control system will provide Rangers supporters with a far more trouble-free and straightforward entry system on matchdays.
- Instead of a Season Ticket booklet with vouchers that had to be presented for each match, supporters now have a convenient size card with a unique bar code printed on it.
- The new system should enable fans to enter the Stadium more smoothly, as vouchers will no longer need to be detached from booklets, or ticket stubs be torn.
- Supporters are advised to hold their card ready to show to the turnstile operator with the bar code facing up and towards the operator. They will have a hand held scanner to read and authenticate the bar code on your card.
- Stadium Director, John MacDonald, told www.qpr.co.uk: "The introduction of AccessManager and TicketFast technology very much brings us in line with a number of the big Clubs in this country, whilst also allowing us to move into the 21st century and be a huge benefit to our fans.
- "It gives the Club enhanced access control, and allows us to make full use of our continued investment in innovative ticketing solutions, which will ultimately benefit our fans as well."
- What's more, the introduction of three new disabled toilets in the Ellerslie Road stand, coupled with brand new kiosks around the entire ground, will allow R's fans far greater fluidity on a matchday.
- Furthermore, a new PA system will provide Rangers supporters with a far clearer sound when PA Billy Rice is waxing lyrical before kick-off, and all this looking out on a newly-laid playing surface.
- Deputy MD, Ali Russell, added: "We're doing everything we can to enhance the already positive matchday experience we have on offer at Loftus Road.
- "Our operations team have worked tirelessly over the summer months to improve the facilities available to our supporters, and we're delighted with the results."
- It really does promise to be a season to remember, so don't delay, snap up your ticket for the opening day fixture against Blackpool now, by calling 08444 777 007, or by clicking here
- *Please note, supporters are reminded to arrive early to embrace our opening day extravaganza, as well as taking advantage of our opening day catering offer." QPR
