  Eze can define the present and transform Crystal Palace's future The cliché of ‘Revolution at the Palace’ is no stranger to being deployed when Crystal Palace make signals of intent in the transfer market – but Palace’s latest addition more than justifies its use. Friday morning saw fans of the Eagles wake up to the long-awaited news that QPR’s creative maestro, Eberechi Eze, had put pen to paper on a five-year deal for the south London outfit. In doing so, Eze marked the most expensive signing during Roy Hodgson’s tenure – which is now entering its fourth season – and garnered delight from the Palace fanbase.

The Haunting of Bly Manor trailer

The Haunting of Bly Manor is a chilling affair. We see Victoria Pedretti (Nell from Hill House) as an American nanny working in England as a caretaker for the orphaned niece and nephew (Amelie Bea Smith and Benjamin Evan Ainsworth) of Henry Wingrave (Henry Thomas). Naturally, unexplainable events begin occurring as "centuries of dark secrets of love and loss are waiting to be unearthed." Oh, and there are a lot of creepy dolls...

The second Haunting of Bly Manor trailer features a haunting cover version of Motley Crue's "Home Sweet Home" – though the trailer is anything but sweet. The Wingrave children and governess Dani Clayton (Victoria Pedretti) are facing some serious horrors. "The people here...they're born here...they die here," the trailer tells us, and from the looks of it, the ghosts and ghouls will be here to wreak havoc.

Thanks to some behind-the-scenes footage, we also have a new look at the series, with Flanagan promising a great many ghosts this time around. You may even spot a few if you look closely...

The Haunting of Bly Manor's title meaning

Wave goodbye to Steve, Shirley, Theo, Nell, and Luke, because The Haunting of Hill House season 2 will centre on The Haunting of Bly Manor. As revealed in the above Instagram post, we can expect all-new characters (but not an all-new cast – more on that later).

That voice you're hearing in the above teaser? “The terrace and the whole place, the lawn and the garden beyond it, all I could see of the park, were empty with a great emptiness,” is a quote from chapter four of The Turn of the Screw, the horror novella by Henry James set in the English estate of Bly Manor.

Crystal Pepsi was a massive failure when it was introduced in 1993, but its cult following celebrated its return—for a limited time, of course—in 2018. So now that Crystal Pepsi has returned, what other failed '90s products deserve another shot? They tease us with great products then remove them.

The Turn of the Screw, on which the new series is based, tells the story of a governess who moves to Bly Manor to take care of a man’s niece and nephew – Miles and Flora – after their parents died. Things turn sour when the governess starts to see ghosts of the previous governess Miss Jessel and her lover Peter Quint around the property. As to now spoil anything about the novel's ending, just know that the debates rage on in literary circles about its ambiguity.

However, while the series will be predominantly based The Turning of the Screw, Flanagan has told GamesRadar+ that the new series will also take in aspects of other stories by Henry James. "The thing I have access to, that no other adaptation of The Turn of to the Screw has, is the rest of Henry James’ ghost stories. I get to use all of them," he said. "The Turn of the Screw has been adapted so many times. We know how perfectly it fits into a feature film format. We're doing a whole season of television. The Turn of the Screw is only one of a dozen stories that we're telling. All Henry James; all thematically linked.

"I think of Turning of the Screw as the backbone of this season – the through-line that carries us from beginning to end. But we get to go off into The Jolly Corner and The Romance of Certain Old Clothes, and so many other of these wonderful ghost stories that people haven't seen adapted before. It's all wrapped up in what seems to be familiar, but that familiarity goes away really early in the first episode. It says, 'We're off on a whole other road.'"

Flanagan added that there's "no upside" to doing a straight adaptation of Turn of the Screw. "It’s been really exciting to have this much bigger canvas, because you're not going to do better than The Innocents anyway," he continues, referencing the 1961 movie based on the same novel.

The Haunting of Bly Manor cast and directors

Oliver Jackson-Cohen and Victoria Pedretti, who played Luke Crain and his younger twin Nell in the first season of The Haunting of Hill House, are back! Yes, despite the series being an anthology, the pair will be returning. However, they will be playing different characters.

Netflix has revealed that Jackson-Cohen will play someone named Peter, “a resident of Bly Manor, who makes life very difficult for everyone who lives there.” Pedretti will play the governess, Dani, who "looks after two very unusual children." The actress announced the news in an instagram video, which you can watch below.

Covid testing scandal EXPOSED: Experts' test offers met with silence

  Covid testing scandal EXPOSED: Experts' test offers met with silence Experts said millions of Britons a day could be getting tested by now instead of a paltry 250,000. A testing lab that was supposed to open in August has yet to process a single test.The while-you-wait gadgets could have been installed in care homes, schools, hospitals and businesses to quickly scan people for the virus and spare the British economy.

Pedretti later told Nylon in an interview: "I'm really excited about it. In some ways, it is [more intense] than season one. It's its own thing. Even though it's the second season of a show that I've been in before, almost everything is different."

Speaking to GamesRadar+, series creator Mike Flanagan spoke about recasting the same actors in new roles. "It will be a totally new story," Flanagan confirmed when asked about bringing them back. "It was important to me that we told that story to its conclusion in the first season. I didn't want to cynically repeat ourselves, and the actors didn’t want to either.

"This frees us up because, in theory, in this anthology format, every season can be its own exploration of another classic piece of horror literature. Actors can stay or go depending on their preference and their availability. That opens it up to new cast and new chances for existing actors. I love that format. It would be quite a disappointment to have to revisit the Cranes. It would rob them of the closure they got at the end of that season."

With regards who will be directing season 2, Flanagan, who directed all episodes of season 1, will be handing the torch to a bunch of new horror directors. He wrote on twitter that Yolanda Ramke and Ben Howling (Netflix's Cargo), Ciarán Foy (Sinister 2), Liam Gavin (A Dark Song), and Axelle Carolyn (Tales of Halloween) will all helm episodes.

Former Palace ace on the verge of re-joining Eagles

  Former Palace ace on the verge of re-joining Eagles Crystal Palace are on the verge of signing former starlet Nathaniel Clyne on a short-term deal, according to Matt Woosnam of The Athletic. According to the report, the deal is set to run until the end of January. The 29-year-old was released at the end of the 2019-20 season by Liverpool, having missed the whole of last season in rehabilitation after cruciate knee ligament damage. Following his release, Clyne had been training on his own before being offered a trial period with his former club, going on to impress Eagles manager Roy Hodgson during this period. Even before his release, the defender had been an outcast over his last few months with Liverpool.

Jackson-Cohen has also done his part to tease the upcoming series. "The hard thing is, is The Haunting of Hill House was – this makes me sound like arrogant – such a brilliant show," he said. "I really loved it. It was such an incredible story, what Mike had done. And so the hard thing was, how's he going to kind of make a second one and it be equally as brilliant?

"And he has, which is just phenomenal. We finished shooting. ...I  left The Invisible Man shoot to go and start on Bly Manor, and it's quite the story. He's so clever, Mike Flanagan."

That's about all we know about the secretive The Haunting of Hill House season 2. However, if you're looking for more terrifying tales from Flanagan then you're in luck.  He has a new Netflix series, titled Midnight Mass, on the way. It will revolve around an “isolated island community” who experience “miraculous events and frightening omens” after a mysterious young priest joins them.

There's plenty to watch before the Haunting of Bly Manor lands. Check out our list of best new TV shows coming soon.

According to Football Insider, the Rams are ‘desperately’ trying to recruit a new striker before Friday’s transfer deadline and have identified the 27-year-old as a potential option. An unfortunate run of injuries has limited the former Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday striker to just 39 appearances since the start of the 2016/17 campaign. Wickham is now entering the final year of his current deal with the Eagles, and Hodgson’s side may be tempted to cash in.
