  • Verily we live entwined with a prediction god in our midst. Not @bookertease , a mere mortal despite getting a correct score. No the one true god amongst us is none other than @MindlessDrugHoover - leading one of these comps is tough enough to achie…
  • Assuming we dont have a relapse before August, will be interesting to see what attendances are like next season. Huge pent up demand like after WW2 or people got out of the habit and found other things to do? @railwaysteve 's prediction game will be…
  • I wonder if Knight’s red card would have stood if we had VAR at our level?

  • Freeman is back from injury and on Orient’s bench. The view from there may get quite familiar for the rest of the season....
  • That’s fine Wendover. Where exactly do you want to draw the line though? How would you word the offside law?
    in VAR Comment by DevC April 10
  • Under the law he was offside. FIFA have tinkered with the offside (and the handball) rule for years. Still not at all sure they have it right. What do you think the offside rule should be?

  • Wyc 1 Luton 1 (Muskwe)
  • Do players out on loan usually return for a squad photo. Surely they are expected to train with their current club? Freeman has a year left on his contract so unless a loan deal that works for him and the club comes off or a settlement is agreed,…
  • Latest results after the Fairytale of New York. Only thing missing was Shane MacGowan and the much missed Kirsty Maccoll. @bigred87 with a remarkable eight of the last nine match results predicted correctly has stormed to the top of the table but…
  • covid has placed clubs already not performing well financially into even greater jeopardy. Perhaps the biggest surprise here is that more clubs (apart from Dover) have not gone over the edge in these times. I don't know the details of Colchester'…
  • For the vast majority of people gambling is just a product like any other. Some people like to have a beer while or before they watch a football game. It enhances their enjoyment. Some people like to place a small bet - it enhances their enjoyment.…
  • Its all done on line these days @drcongo and for a bet on Senor manager priced at 10-1 the system would only allow a maximum stake of £25. In theory you cold have two or more separate accounts but your £25 bet alone will almost certainly have crashe…
  • Mostly that seems pretty much reality, @LX1 . worth noting though that betvictor (usually) and William Hill (sometimes) also offer markets on next manager with the same massive margins plus every likelihood that the "winner" will not have been liste…
  • I have no idea whether GA would be amongst the favourites for the Blackburn job but remember he never actually played for their first team. Although he comes from the town and supports them, not sure they have particularly strong feelings about him…
  • @OxfordBlue said: Why wouldn't we retain both keepers? Money presumably (and next season possibly limited squad places). if in Lg1, surely unlikely we would have more than one senior and one of the two young GKs (preferably one of the rig…
  • It’s the hope that kills you Rotherham 2 Wyc 1 (Horgan)
  • They didn’t win it but got very close. Level on points equal goal difference one more goal scored but just behind on goal average. And they missed a penalty in a drawn final game.
  • Here is the latest table. Congrats to @bigred87. a correct score prediction moves him into a share of the human league. With @MindlessDrugHoover only one point behind and a few more in touching distance it looks like it is going to be an exciting…
  • If games played before they became PL champions counts, as with MC, we failed to beat Chelsea and Leicester in league cup games.
  • Wyc 1 blackburn 2 (fred)
  • have we ever played Wootton Harry Bassett?
  • Gary Leicester
  • while we love to beat ourselves up and to slag off Premiership[ academies, I would say we currently have the best potential group of youngish players in my lifetime. Henderson, Wan Bissaka, Stones, ??, Chilwell: Rice, Bellingham: Sterling, Foden, ra…

  • At the age of 22yrs 9 months. Funny old world...
  • No inside info @Micra. Just at this stage lots of candidates (including some no doubt no one has thought or perhaps heard of). Gareth is no doubt a possible - indeed a strong candidate in my view - but with so many options more likely than not they …
  • Everyone needs a hobby,Eric
  • @prufrock_91 said: He's done amazing things for the club, and it would be extremely sad to see him go - not least as the squad is built so much with the way he plays in mind - but it would be interesting to have a change at the top. A…
  • If he is not offered the Preston job, @floyd (which probably remains the most likely scenario) , all of this is moot. If he is offered the Preston job, I am sure the relocation is not attractive to either GA or RD but the reality is that there a…
  • TACRITE, Eric. My take is this. they may well not get offered the Preston job but if they do...... Personally I can't see GA wanting to take a new job without taking Dobbo with him - their success seems to come as a very much a double act. …
  • so at last a little break after a gruelling run of fixtures. here is the up to date scoreboard. Congrats to @MindlessDrugHoover for landing a correct score and moving right into contention. Going to be a close run thing to the end I suspect. …
