It was Lowe's first job in the Championship and Schumacher's first role as a number one. He narrowly missed out on the play-offs in League One last season, but has had Argyle at the top of the division pretty much all campaign this time around. At the half-way stage, Plymouth are top of the table with a four point gap to third placed Sheffield Wednesday. Things could've gone very differently for both Schumacher and Plymouth, but all the signs now are that he and Lowe could well go up against each other next season.

Ex-Blackpool, Blackburn & Bolton midfielder Spearing reveals illness diagnosisFormer Blackpool midfielder Jay Spearing was rushed to hospital on Christmas Eve and has been diagnosed with Addison's Disease. The 34-year-old played 120 times for the Seasiders between 2017 and 2020. He moved to the club after being released by Bolton Wanderers, where his time there also involved a loan spell with Blackburn Rovers, who he had joined from boyhood club Liverpool. Spearing, after a spell at Tranmere Rovers, is back at Liverpool in their under-21s set-up as a senior player, as well as in a coaching capacity at Anfield.
“But once this opportunity came from the owner, Simon Hallett, and the CEO, Andrew Parkinson, I just felt I was ready for it. “I’m a big believer in taking risks. I backed myself to try my hardest, to learn and to improve every day – that’s all I can do. If it doesn’t work, then at least I’ve tried. So far, I’ve really enjoyed it. As far as first years in management go, it couldn’t have gone much better, apart from maybe getting in the Play-Offs last season. Although that was a disappointment to miss out, I think it was a big learning curve and highlighted pretty quickly what we needed to do in the summer to try to take that next step. As a number two, I learned to be a good grass coach – that’s what I consider to be my strength.
"After more observations and tests were carried out they diagnosed me with Addison's Disease. It’s took me a minute to get my head around it, but I am thankful that now it’s been diagnosed it can be controlled and managed through hormone replacement treatment, and it’s not something that I will allow to effect or dictate my life.
You can extend the walk by continuing along the river into Nidd Gorge - which is equally as stunning. Upon the walk, it immediately became clear that no video or picture, no matter how gorgeous it made the town look, could do the riverside walk justice. It felt like I had entered a different world to the one I had left behind in Leeds, where I live. Of course, differences are to be expected when heading from a bustling city to quaint town. But what struck me was the change in atmosphere. I can't quite describe how this charming walk made me feel, it was just stunning.
TripAdvisor was right. And of course I had to make a quick pit-stop for a selfie under the ever so popular arches before continuing down the riverside. The river side itself was beautiful, the sun was shining over the water and it just made for the perfect day. But the picturesque walk overlooking the gorgeous stretch of river wasn't everything that made this walk so great. The famous arches in Knaresborough (Image: Megan Banner) Now I'm a sucker for architecture, my friends will tell you how strangely obsessed with Grand Designs I am, but the houses alongside the River Nidd are just something else.
I tried the 'best walking trail' in Yorkshire and it is simply stunningWhen I describe my perfect winter Sunday, it usually involves getting wrapped up warm in my big coat and putting on my scar and wellies and going for a lovely fresh walk. Yorkshire has hundreds of routes for walkers of all abilities, but with it being Christmas, I was after something special. With a quick google for the best scenic walking area in Yorkshire, I stumbled across the River Nidd Waterside Walk in Knaresborough. It has been voted number one on TripAdvisor, so I jumped in my car and decided to give it go. And, I am so glad I did.

Rovers predicted team vs PNE as Championship season resumesBlackburn Rovers resume their Championship campaign with a lunchtime televised derby against Preston North End today. Jon Dahl Tomasson's side were beaten 3-0 by rivals Burnley in their final game before the World Cup break but sit third in the Championship table after a strong opening 21 games which has yielded 12 wins. Another victory would move Rovers back into the top two, for a few hours at least. Rovers will be able to call upon Sam Gallagher and Jake Garrett but will be without Harry Pickering and Jack Vale.

He has now been diagnosed with Addison's Disease, which is an uncommon illness where the body does not make enough of a certain hormone. The condition can be controlled and managed through treatment and something the midfielder is determined not to impact his daily life.
I was in complete awe the whole time, speechless and jaw-dropped to say the least. As I continued my walk along the riverside I imagined what it must be like to live in the picture perfect town, I certainly wouldn't mind finding out. Despite considering myself a city girl living in Leeds, I would love to live in Knaresborough - perhaps one day right? A girl can dream. Continuing along the walk I just couldn't put into words how pretty this part of North Yorkshire looked in the stunning winter sunshine. I can completely agree that River Nidd Waterside Walk is the best scenic walking trail in Yorkshire and I will 100% doing this walk again, not to mention the amount of people I will recommend it to.
He has urged people to get checked when they notice changes in their bodies. Taking to Instagram, Spearing wrote: "My first Christmas off in 17 years was a little different than I expected. After blood tests with the club, on Xmas Eve I was told I needed to attend hospital urgently before my body starting shutting down. I was potentially hours/days away from going into something called adrenal crisis.

Gallagher has trained for the last week without any reaction after suffering a gash on his knee last time out against Burnley. READ MORE: Dack and Hirst progress addressed by Rovers boss Garrett picked up an ankle injury during the training camp in Marbella whilst Vale had a calf issue. Neither player featured in the friendly wins against Hearts or Ajax, as a result. While the former has been back in training, the game at Ewood Park comes too soon for Vale. Tomasson will likely deploy a back five with Ryan Hedges at wing back along with Callum Brittain. Dom Hyam, Daniel Ayala and Scott Wharton will form the central defenders with Lewis Travis and Morton providing the security in midfield. Samme Szmodics is in line for a return to the side having missed the Burnley game while Gallagher will likely partner Ben Brereton Diaz in attack.
