  Betfred Cup: Hibs v the Dons
Posted by: 0762 - 5 hours ago - Forum: Hibernian - No Replies

Well this is a chance for Hibs to pick up momentum after Saturday's great result v Dundee but no more injuries please. Also noticeable there is no mad rush by hibees to buy match tickets. Looks like only a 12k crowd. This cup tourney not of such great interest aswould've been participation in the Europa League. Still, a win generates more revenue for the club and keeps our unbeaten home record intact. C'mon Hibs!

  Betfred Cup: Saint Johnstone v Celtic
Posted by: 0762 - 5 hours ago - Forum: Celtic - No Replies

A quick opp for the Hoops to get "back on track" and target a decent win v a Saints team that collapsed at Ibronx v Rangers. Time to impose more misery on a team that was a lot worse than the Hoops during that fateful Saturday. IMO Forrest to return, Ntcham also a "must" to return from that one match ban, McGregor to start and play more of the traditional hi-press attacking style that will win games.

  HTAFC Prediction League 2018/19 Matchday 8
Posted by: Lord Snooty - 8 hours ago - Forum: Huddersfield Town - No Replies

2 points for a correct result
4 points for a correct score
2 points for each correct scorer
Correct joker doubles your score   Laugh     
Wrong joker result gives you minus 2
Correct Random Badger gives you 2 points Badger

The random badger Badger is used for any random prediction used once in each matchday sequence. For instance, a scorer at a particular match, the number of red cards in the matches or yellow cards or own goals or owt you want really within reason, I do need to be able to check whether it's correct or not. Please don't put stuff like....."Commentator says...."  Rolleyes
The joker  Laugh is played for one match in each sequence and if correct you get double points. So if you've predicted 1-0 and it finishes 2-0, you get 4 pts, but if you've predicted 2-0, that's 8 pts. But if you get it wrong, it's minus 2.
Jokers and badgers are optional. You don't have to play one if you don't want.

Cup games:
In the event of a draw, it's half the points if you've predicted a draw when it gets to 90 mins and the full points if it's still a draw after extra time. Half the points will be awarded for correctly predicting the winner of the match if it goes to penalties.

Random score generator: I will be using the random score generator again for those who miss predicting, so we shouldn't get some people too far behind that after missing a couple of weeks they lose all interest, because I know it's not easy getting on here every week.
To be fair to everybody, this is going to be like, say if three people in one week miss their predictions, the first one in the table will be given all 0-0, the second one down the line will get 1-0 and the third will get 0-1 and so on, like if there's four missing the 4th will get 1-1, then 5th 2-1, 6th 1-2. and if there are so many missing, might as well pack in. Wink
And if you miss two weeks on the trot, I'll stop until you come back on again. Not doing it for half a season like I did last year.  Rolleyes

  PNE v Middlesbrough Deepdale 25/9/2018
Posted by: themaclad - Yesterday, 12:27 - Forum: Preston North End - Replies (1)

A cup tie against the Boro under the lights at Deepdale could just be the thing to get our season up and running, mind you thought the same when we beat Leeds. Desperately need to sort out our defensive short comings against one of the Championship favourites who probably won't put out their strongest team indeed Pulis previously stated he wasn't that bothered about the League cup. They may not be the strongest team but they will be organised and no doubt all over 6 foot tall.
For us Pearson available after his enforced holiday for me Neil has to play his strongest possible side if we are to get any sort of consistency. There were signs on Saturday of some fluency in the play but the sooner we start producing on the field the better.
Shorter than usual blog but here's the man in the middle stuff

It’s 12 months since tonight’s match official last took charge of a game at Deepdale, with Oliver Langford appointed as the match referee.

West Midlands official Oliver last took charge of our Tuesday night clash with then league leaders Cardiff City at Deepdale in September 2017, when the Lilywhites ran out 3-0 winners against Neil Warnock’s Bluebirds.

The previous season he took charge of three North End games. His first was the live Sky victory over Wigan Athletic back in September 2016, his second, our first match of the new year, at Burton Albion on 2nd January and his third the goalless draw away at Barnsley in February.
He also twice took charge of the Lilywhites in 2015/16; the goalless draw against Derby County, when goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard made his debut for the club, and the April trip to Middlesbrough, so this is his second PNE versus Boro match in his career.

His first game in change of North End before that was the clash with Swindon at the County Ground in November 2014.

So far this season he has taken charge of six fixtures, including Boro’s 2-0 win at Bristol City back in August, issuing 12 cautions and one sending off.

He will be assisted by Akil Howson and Robert Merchant, with David Webb the fourth official for the game under the Deepdale floodlights

It's a hat-trick! Stoke City striker Saido Berahino only scored twice in 913 days – but 'HAS fathered three babies born to three different mothers over a six-week period'

  Is Anyone Missing The Greed League?
Posted by: The Quantum Enigma - 23-09-2018, 22:57 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (12)

Newspapers going on about how dull man u are how good liverpool are
how exciting the premier league is.
well excuse me....premier league aint really exciting is it?
same old clubs vying for the title
those who have the bigger budgets
yes we were part of it....but were we really?
yes in our tenure in the greed league
we beat Chelsea,Arsenal Tottenham..etc etc
always got the feeling we were the annoying smell of outdated food
you know the old chicken kiev`s that you had left in the bottom of the freezer(one for the students)
suddenly finding it and realising it was out of date

getting relegated is like cleaning out the crap you forgot you had in the freezer
the smell dissapears
and you suddenly get friends back round to watch you
friends you lost cause of the bad smell

(did that make sense?)

the greed league is just a vessel
those who have survive
those who have not sink

(thats my take on things)

  Killie 2 Celtic 1 - not a surprise result after viewing Rodgers' starting line up!
Posted by: 0762 - 23-09-2018, 19:55 - Forum: Celtic - Replies (6)

In a dramatic end to a footie match, Celtic undone in the dying secs to lose 2-1. IMO not a surprise if one had viewed the Celtic team that started this game. Lotsa 1st pick players missing and this game was always gonna be testy enough on that awful artificial pitch even with Celtic's strongest line up! Lotsa possession for the Hoops but continuously playing from left to right and right to left does not win these kinda games - not enough penetration up front! No coincidence either that they lost right after a keenly fought Euro match v Rosenborg on Thurs night. Deja vu!!! However, it is still a minor setback that Celtic have experienced before and particularly during Euro group periods! Too many Celtic fans getting a bit "carried away" during what is still an early part of the season and that artificial pitch is still bloody awful, a real "leveller" TBF!!
