  1. RESULTS No delay this week! Northampton were a popular choice to score goals in League Two with 7 players backing them, and they scored 2 goals so 2 points for those players. Georgia were the hit choice in the Nations League scenario backing a few players 3 points along with those who backed Italy and Estonia. @The Liquidator fighting back to reclaim the top spot with a score of 11, the highest of the week, just above @Lucas who put in the second highest score (alongside myself) with 9 points with both of them on the same points (70) overall now. @CaaC (John) gives a good score of 8 for the week, @Michael earnt 7 points, @Rucksackfranzose, @Dan and returnee @Dr. Gonzo all bagged 6 points. @Stan, @nudge and @RandoEFC all score 5 points and sit in 3rd to 5th (not in the right order but I can't be arsed to retag). The mediocre scores of the week go to @Bluewolf (3), @Viva la FCB (2) and @Tommy (1). No points for @Coma, @JoshBRFC, @DeadLinesman or @nawoo who didn't enter this week.

  2. My eldest daughter was round tonight with the Grandkids and tells us they have to dress up as Victorian children on the 30th for something they are doing at school and have also been told to pack a Victorian lunch for them... So she tells us she does not have a clue what to give them for lunch, then promptly said " Help me out, what did you used to take back in them days??" Bloody cheek of it...

  4. The WPL Cup will run alongside the league competition. All you have to do is continue to predict as normal. I'll do the rest! This tournament will commence from WEEK 10. The current standings following Week 9's fixtures will determine how the groups will shape up. There are 17 competitors in the league. They will be split into four groups - to be posted shortly! You'll only play each other once in the group stage. At the knockout stage, it will be 2 legs. For the final, it will be 1 leg. @CaaC (John) @Bluewolf @Pyfish @Bluebird Hewitt @Viva la FCB @JoshBRFC @Foxc1 @Rucksackfranzose @Tommy @Dr. Gonzo @Mel81x @nudge @Michael @N U F C @The Liquidator @nawoo Previous Winners: - 2021/22 - @Pyfish - 2020/21 - @Pyfish

  12. RESULTS It's been too long, let's get these results out and hopefully get back to normal where I don't delay results We've had mixed fortunes in the rounds so far with nobody managing to build up any kind of big lead and most players sitting on negative points - this round produced 2 games with a 6 point swing, and one with an 8 point swing so there was plenty of points on offer - and obviously a lot to lose too. 3 games were not played due to the Queen's passing, and one game ended in a draw. The only remaining game only had the 1 goal in it. 2 games where it was 1 v all, @CaaC (John) benefitted as the only person to back Bognor Regis to beat Cray with that 8 point swing. Whilst @Lucas was the victim of a 6 point swing as he backed Hartberg to beat Austria Vienna but they didn't! @Stan is bottom of the table after losing another 5 points, along with Lucas and @Rucksackfranzose who also scored -5. The top scorer was @CaaC (John) who had a great week with 11 points scored. @Beelzebub got 3 points, and @DeadLinesman and @nudge got 1 point each FIXTURES Cruzeiro v Vasco Magallanes v Cobreloa Barnsley v Charlton Doncaster v Crawley Plymouth v Ipswich Hildesheim v Bremer Shamrock Rovers v UC Dublin Grimsby v Carlisle

  14. I'm aware this could fall flat on its face, but I'm raising money for a charitable and worthwhile cause. Realise times are tight for everyone, but even if you are able to spare a few pounds towards this, it'd be much appreciated. Cancer has probably affected us in some way, directly or indirectly, through our lives. My mum suffered breast cancer in 2020 and thankfully has recovered and didn't need anything major in terms of operations, surgery etc. I'm doing this challenge with my missus to help raise money for Cancer Research UK - Skipping Challenge - Take 100 skips a day in October https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/donate/210d33cd-4576-4d38-b966-35dd866265ed/details Even if you don't want to donate, you might find a challenge on there (or with other charities/fundraisers) that you want to shout about or need help with, and this can be the place to do it

  17. Finally, some good financial news - the club has announced a 6 million profit in the last fiscal year. Might not seem like much, but for some context, we made a loss of almost 24 million in 2019/20, and of almost 9 million in 20/21, so this is a nice change which shows that we're making all the necessary steps back to financial stability. Definitely not an easy task, given the circumstances.

  18. Just watched the first 3 episodes, and I'm really impressed. A dark, mature, serious noir thriller in Star Wars skin; very different from anything we've seen in the franchise so far. Picks up somewhat slowly, has a lot of depth and development in both the story and the characters in the first few episodes already, the casting and acting is great, the world building is fantastic. It's so refreshingly different. I think this would appeal even to those who don't watch or like Star Wars much; easily watchable as a standalone series.

  19. RESULTS Another delay for the results but we should be back to normal now hopefully! I'll keep it brief this week just so we can move on! Two scenarios have been removed (Goals into Points: Championship & Number of Goals in Match: Leeds v Forest) due to the postponement of English football matches on that weekend. The key scenario proved to be the draws one - where only 3 people picked a team who drew their match. No points for @Coma, @Viva la FCB or @Dr. Gonzo who didn't put their scenarios in this round. TABLE @Lucas / @The Liquidator / @nudge / @Stan / @RandoEFC / @Tommy / @Dan / @Rucksackfranzose / @Michael / @JoshBRFC / @CaaC (John) / @Bluewolf / @DeadLinesman / @nawoo NEXT SCENARIOS Scenarios are from Friday so plenty of time to get them in and I'll try and do a reminder for those who haven't done it. Result - Hebburn Town v Stockton HEBBURN (2) / DRAW (3) / STOCKTON (2) Goals into Points - League Two - Saturday YOUR CHOICE Team to Score First - Plymouth v Ipswich PLYMOUTH (4) / IPSWICH (3) / NO GOAL (5) UEFA Nations League - Team to Win - Monday Only YOUR CHOICE (3) Grimsby to win by 2+ goals v Carlisle YES (2) / NO (1)

  20. Agree on Red Dead Redemption. Was very good overall, even though the online was a bit crap. As for Assassin's Creed, what I played was ok but when I played them back to back, I basically got burnt out and wasn't really enjoying them in the end. My general opinion: 1st - Can see what they were doing but very repetitive. Altair was boring as well. 2nd - Personal favourite of those I played. More side missions with more variation and Ezio was a good lead. Liked the story as well, though thought the final boss was ass. Brotherhood - Also very good. Really liked ways to build your own Creed, sending them out on missions etc. Plus playing about in Rome was always fun. Revelations - Meh. Couldn't get into this one. Hated the tower defence game (though ironically made you play the game more as an actual assassin ) and wasn't arsed with the bomb crafting. Also by this point that it started to feel too samey. 3 - Ambitious but didn't really like it, namely because Connor just came across as a whiney asshole, which put me off. That's where I finished as I didn't play much of Black Flag and Unity was a buggy mess when released. By the time Syndicate came out, I was already a bit behind and had no real interest in getting up to speed.

  21. I went through a bout of depression in my uni days, specifically the final year. After the first couple of years I think I got bored and just wanted to get out in the working world and earn money, but couldn't drop out and just became very isolated and introverted. Lost all desire to learn or get the degree I'd signed up for. Felt a huge wave of guilt for family who had helped me get to that point. I didn't start my dissertation until the final term - the months leading up to it I just put it off constantly, lost all will and motivation, to do anything. It got to the point where the deadline was creeping up. Somehow found some energy within me to totally blag it. Made up a shit load of research, stats, analysis, whatever I could to build up some kind of dossier of information that would pass as acceptable. Submitted it on time, along with coursework that had the mildest of effort put in. With the benefit of hindsight, I still have that guilt running through me, but on the other hand, I was so utterly relieved that uni finished and I could just start work. Started working full-time, permanent at the place I had been at in the summers in between each uni year. Got confidence back and started to get life back on track. I still feel shame as to how uni ended. It's meant to be 'the best days' but for me, it's overhyped and overrated. Personal opinion, of course. I didn't get the value out of it I thought I would.

  22. Yeah, I meant the meaning of such a competition in general, not specifically what the FIFA WC or similar events of other sporting disciplines have become, haha. I think the problem with your suggestion is the very nature of team sports, as outside of national teams, all these individual players play for clubs in domestic competitions. Having multiple international events of high value spread throughout every calendar year would probably be a huge overload.

  25. RESULTS Results for a round of fixtures ON THE SAME DAY as the last fixture? That makes up for being late the past few rounds... Only one draw from this round of fixtures which is great! Highest goal/point swing was 8 for the Hildesheim v Bremer game with only @Stan and @CaaC (John) choosing correctly and that is reflected in the scores as they are the highest scorers of the week with 11 and 9 respectively. The lowest score was 3 scored by myself, @Rucksackfranzose and @Lucas. @DeadLinesman was the mid-range scorer with 5 and getting himself back into the positive numbers overall. @Beelzebub and @nudge failed to predict and I forgot to do a reminder. Fixtures Starting from tomorrow night! Hobro v F. Amager Mansfield v Hartlepool Twente v Vitesse Sevilla v Atletico Madrid Man City v Man United Atalanta v Fiorentina Verona v Udinese Ross County v Motherwell

  26. Calling Lewa a ‘proper number 9’ is like calling a McClaren a four door family car. The guy is an abnormality. What Bayern are missing is one the greatest players of all time, any sort of mediocrity following him leaving should be expected. Dozens of great centre-forwards wouldn’t do much to replace Lewa; Icardi for instance is a great scorer but isn’t 1/10 of Lewa. There really isn’t anything or anyone that can fix Bayern besides going through the growing pains of not having debatably (Gerd Muller) the greatest scorer in Bundesliga history. Just give it time, the team will adapt.

  29. The internationals on Friday/Saturday brought up two winners: Italy scored in the 68th minute providing no winners. Ireland scored in the 18th minute in their game: 2 points 1 point Table after Game 26: @Rucksackfranzose goes up into 7th and joins 3 others on 8 points. Similarly, while @Michael stays in 12th, he's now level on 6 points with 3 others too.

  32. It's coming home really isn't deep at all, I wasn't even sure it was self deprecating (the actual lyrics within the song are) but the main bit, is it just not the same as any song the fans sing? I highly doubt for example Plymouth Argyle fans truly, hand on heart believe that they are the greatest team the world has ever seen.

  33. Not even an England ‘fan’ so to speak, but this has become the biggest fallacy in world football along with Pogba being world class. The “it’s coming home” chants have 99.9% been self depreciating tongue in cheek since around 2002. It’s probably sung more by England fans since it seems to boil everybody’s piss for absolutely no reason. It’s literally an unofficial anthem and that’s it.

  42. Ruud Van Nistelrooy. 6 yard assassin. Most good centerbacks who are non violent and pick up very few cards. Mertesacker is one, I'm sure there are others. James Milner has always been as exciting as watching a dead horse rot. Xavi is actually a really good high level shout. Playing 110 passes a game, 95 of which were to a center back or Busquets, 14 to his full backs and 1 golden assist.
