  1. February 22nd-24th Watford claimed the points in the reverse fixture, despite attempting to throw away 3 points in favour of 1 with some absurd defending after their 3rd goal. However recent form suggests Watford are a much tougher nut to crack, with the 2-1 defeat against Spurs being the only game they had conceded against an opponent, against Palace on the 12th January. Their away record in the Premier League to date reads: Won: 4, Drawn: 5 & Lost: 4, goals for: 17 & goals against: 16 It's worth noting only Liverpool;, Manchester City and Tottenham have conceded less goals away from home. Scoring goals though is a different story, managing exactly 17 at home and 17 away, Watford are very much a well drilled team who rarely concede many but aren't likely to overly trouble defences (they've only scored 2 or more goals in 9 of their 26 league matches). It's entirely possible Cardiff could avoid relegation following the Sala tragedy, you cannot underestimate the sense of unity that exists within the club and the motivation to succeed in the memory of the Argentine. They were pretty awful against Southampton in the first half but rode their luck and took their chances and what they lack in quality, they make up in application. Their home form has yielded the same amount of points as Watfords, 17 but defensively Cardiff are considerably worse. With a -8 goal difference in Wales (GF 15, GA 23), they've only kept 4 clean sheets at home, 2 since the turn of the year against a shite Huddersfield side and Bournemouth who are equally poor on the road. Will it be shit? Yes, pretty much. It's hard to see this being anything but a war of attrition. In their last 3 home games Cardiff managed 2 goals, both against Bournemouth. Watford are very hot and cold, regardless of where they play but they are particularly blunt against well drilled defences. Shit rating: 4/5 Optimistic prediction: Cardiff 1-0 Watford The 'Tommy Lee does not approve this match' prediction: Cardiff 0-0 Watford

    I think we’re done here for now.
  4. Totenkopf is very much associated with the Nazi's in France, but more specifically events such as the Le Paradis massacre.

    How do I cash these in?
  7. All, Over recent weeks it became clear to us as a staffing team that we needed to discuss and review the rules and how we intended to implement them. As part of this I have separately carried out post reviews on members to gain a more objective view of what has been occurring around the forum. Since we came to be in 2017 we (the staff) have taken a fairly relaxed approach simply because you are all adults. To avoid labouring the point, over the last few months it had become clear the landscape was changing. As part of the aforementioned post reviews the members listed below have been excluded from the site. The suspensions are for 'memberating', overt baiting of members/staff, persistent infractions including - but not limited to - passive aggressive posting, instigating unnecessary arguments and deliberately divisive behaviour that could damage forum membership growth. I personally combed through six weeks of posts for a sample group of posters (and again, not limited to the below). I want to be abundantly clear, the team that moderates this forum does the very best it can in any given circumstance. We make mistakes like anyone else and sometimes there simply is no way to please everyone. The following members have been suspended: @Marc 6 months @José 3 months
  8. I love these long term loans with obligations to buy clauses. They're effectively extended term deferred transfer payments. This is the nonsense financial fairplay has brought to the table.
  9. Fair question. I’ll make this the next match of focus.
  10. At St Mary’s yesterday there was a fan complaining about the minute silence. “Why are we doing this again?! Fuck sake,” He then followed it up with “Pay the fucking bill” Cunt
  11. So yesterday I had the opportunity to go to St Mary's to watch Southampton vs Cardiff. And my fucking lord the standard of football on offer was absolute shite. So I decided I'd kick off an irregular series of insights and views into Premier League games. Tottenham vs Leicester 13:30 Leicester haven't won a game in their last five outings in all competitions. The only variable in that series of course was the 1-1 draw at Anfield. They've also scored 17 but conceded 18 away from home in the league where they've won 5, drawn 3 and lost 5. That said, prior to the 5-4 victory at Wembley on the final day of last season, Tottenham had a record of 1 win in 6 at home versus Leicester. Tottenham's home record reads 8 wins, 0 draws and 4 losses and in the last 3 games at Wembley have scored the winning goal in the last 7 minutes. Will it be shit? It's a lunch time kick off and I'm renowned for having a propensity for diabolical predictions but I think both teams will score. I also think the 2nd half will be the more entertaining. Obviously an eye on Vardy to score, such is his will against the top six. Shit rating: 1.5/5 It's not going to be a repeat of last seasons 5-4, if anything I expect Puel to play it cagey. Tottenham will be once again reliant on Son in the absence of Kane and Dele. Optimistic Prediction: 2-1 home win The "Got my Tommy Lee Jones hat on" prediction: 1-1 bore draw
