  1. Napoli's official account. Absolutely obscene.
  2. I have confidence even a dead Stevie Wonder would see it!
  3. Mallorca back in the lead on stroke of half time
  4. Netherlands first goal was so clearly offside even Stevie Wonder sees it.
  5. Ipswich take the lead with a stunner from long range
  6. Good game at Ipswich. Wolves went 2 up early on but Ipswich have leveled it up
  7. Sent mine last week which I'm sure you know about so I don't plan on sending them again at this moment in time.
  8. An entertaining week to predict for, and despite varying scores there was only one player that improved their ranking. But to begin with, @Dan deserves some credit for a Prediction of the Week, correctly guessing Villa's 1-0 victory over Chelsea. And while this bagged him 18 points, he out-did himself by guessing a 2-2 draw between Sheff Utd & Newcastle... @Lucas top-scored with a very good 20 points, but this was not enough to displace @6666, although the lead is narrowed down to just 3 points now. The one player that improved their ranking was @Rajabhat Rovers, who scored 16 points, and this took him up to 6th place. It's still fairly close in some respects, as the gap between 4th and the few places below is now much smaller, and there are still only 10 points separating 6th down to 11th. @JoshBRFC scoring highly with 18 points also gets him closer to the mid-table pack.
  9. Week 8 Results Plymouth 6-2 Norwich St Mirren 1-0 Hearts Istanbul Basaksehir 1-2 Galatasaray Lazio 1-1 Monza Real Salt Lake 2-1 Vancouver Melbourne City 1-2 Sydney FC Ajax 0-3 Feyenoord* Anderlecht 1-1 Club Brugge Atletico Madrid 3-1 Real Madrid PSG 4-0 Marseille Round-up Some big derbies and rivalries to contend with in Week 8, especially on Sunday where we had the final 5 games all hotly-contested. One of which is the one in Netherlands, where Ajax vs Feyenoord was abandoned. I have decided to count this as a 3-0 Feyenoord win even though the remainder of the match continues tomorrow. All that being said, the highest score came from @nawoo who scored 14 points, which takes him into 3rd and is now only 1 point behind 2nd place. Myself, @Bluebird Hewitt and @CaaC (John) all scored 12 points, with the latter being the first to top 100 points and our resident Welshman climbing one place as a result. @Pyfish's mission to rise up from the foot of the table is one step closer as he outscores @Viva la FCB by two points.
  10. That, and a text conversation where he (if it is him) saying he 'doesn't care what the spastic fans think' and that he won't be giving the club another penny, and that it can die for all he cares.

    when I went to open the window to get even clearer pictures it flew away.
  13. I'll scour a fair few games and look at their recent fixtures - the goals and corners 'usually' come in fairly easy. Then it's just a case of the bookings - I'll look at how bad their discipline is in general, and especially these days with refs being much more stricter. For Norwich, there was an average 4.75 bookings in their previous 3 games; for Plymouth there was an average of 3.33 bookings in their previous 3. So to me that's a pretty unlucky anomaly for their game together to have only had 1 booking. I'll usually go for sides that like to attack, too - as that means the goals is more likely to come in, and more attacking opportunities leads to the likelihood of more corners. There were 7 corners by half-time in their game, and obviously goals came in with ease. Then it was just a case of hoping for Norwich to lose their discipline. For the Cambridge/Port Vale game, it was literally half-way there by half-time - 1 goal, 5 corners and 2 bookings. I was very tempted to go for Over 2.5 goals/over 9.5 corners/over 35 booking points in the North London Derby - that came in very easily and the odds were about 5/1 I think.

    Talking of butterflies, took this the other day...
  15. Last second goal for Huddersfield!!! Cov will be fuming for not killing this game off.
  16. Coventry score such a jammy goal Rebound off the bar but the player knew fuck all about it.
  17. @CaaC (John) / @Dan - add in Luton vs Burnley please to your predictions. I didn't realise that was re-arranged for next week!
  18. Game 39 - 16th Game 40 - 17th
  19. GAME 39 - INTER MILAN vs SASSUOLO - WEDNESDAY 27th SEPTEMBER, 19.45 (BST) GAME 40 - NEWCASTLE vs MAN CITY - WEDNESDAY 27th SEPTEMBER, 20.00 (BST) ***any predictions made after kick-off will not count*** @Mel81x @Lucas @6666 @Dr. Gonzo @Michael @Redcanuck @Devil @Reluctant Striker @CaaC (John) @Beelzebub @Devil-Dick Willie @JoshBRFC @Viva la FCB @Pyfish @Bluewolf @Tommy @Rucksackfranzose @OrangeKhrush
  20. Game 37 was entertaining as ever, with a first goal on 26 minutes. But unfortunately no winners! A contrast in score and amount of winners for Game 38 though. Several winners for a 24th-minute first goal. 2 points 1 point 1 point Plus 2 points for @nudge for a 23rd-minute pick, and 1 point for @Faithcore for his 22nd-minute pick. Table after Game 38: The lead at the top is now 3 points, but now @6666 is joint 2nd with 9 points. @nudge goes up to 8 points to join two others, and @Faithcore is now joint 7th. @Lucas is also level with two others now after adding a point to his tally.
  21. And then how not to use it for the Gordon handball against Sheff Utd. Would love to hear the comms for both.
  22. Free hit for me, too. Especially considering how good the start to the league season has been and the likelihood of how much rotation there'll be for us. Expecting the likes of Coady, Daka, Hamza, Justin, Yunus, Albrighton, Stolarczyk to start. Hope it's not a hammering and maybe that's less likely with the likely Liverpool rotation too. Not bothered if we lose, but just hope it's not a heavy one or that it doesn't derail the league form. Maresca will hopefully make sure we do give a good showing though.
