For those who thought I wasn't doing a Chesterfield Predication League this season, you thought wrong as I have been busy creating a completely new game this season called Six fold.

Welcome to Six fold

The Rules of Six fold:

  • Each player taking part will pick 6 teams each matchday to win from any division of there choice.
  • Each player can bet as much as they want from there prize fund.
  • I will use betfair to look at the odds of the matches.
  • If you get 1 out of 6 right you will still get paid from that one win added to your prize fund and so on up to 6. If you get all 6 wrong the money you bet will go into penalty pot and be deducted from your fund and whoever gets all 6 right next time will win the penalty pot on top of there winnings for that matchday.
  • Each player taking part will be given £100 to start with.
  • The winner will be the one with the highest prize fund come the end of the season.

    I really hope this works!

    Prize Fund Table

    Dancingwilldoit £100

  Burnley vs WBA - Match Thread

Albion legend John Talbut in a previous life, facing the Baggies in Burnley colours in 1963.


Following a trademark 1-0 win which, in the circumstances, most of us gratefully took with a sigh of relief, the quest to pick up early points continues on Saturday with a trip to Turf Moor. Burnley, of course, had every reason to be pleased with the three points they bagged at Stamford Bridge, and as things remain very much up in the air with this makeshift Albion team, they'll look to repeat the feat.

It's not all doom and gloom for the Baggies, mind; last week both Hegazy and J-Rod looked very much the part, and the squad has been further augmented by the arrival of Gareth Barry. Like Darren Fletcher and Joleon Lescott before him, the latter is a player of undoubted quality getting on in years, and we just need him to provide that flash of inspiration when it's needed. If he can do that, then it's a worthwhile (though frustratingly short-termist) signing. The question marks that hover over Evans and Chadli aren't so good, but hey ho: until deadline day comes just get your heads down and keep the points rolling in, lads.

  The Royals at Deepdale 19/8/2017
Posted by: themaclad - 17-08-2017, 16:22 - Forum: Preston North End - Replies (2)

Preston North End v Reading @ Deepdale 19/8/2017

After three away games the lads return to home turf with a game against last years beaten play off finalists Huddersfield Town after losing a penalty shoot out.
The Royals last visit to Deepdale ended with them getting hammered 3-0 and it was actually a surprise to me that they made the finals as they were one of the poorer teams to arrive at Deepdale last season.
Like us the Royals have four points, winning on Wednesday night against those hapless saps from Villa Park, away from home they have only played at QPR were they lost by 2-0. Since last season they have lost keeper Ali Al Habsi who probably did more than anyone else to keep them at the higher end of the table, they also indebited to Kermogant who scored 18 league goals however he is injured at the moment and mpore than likely will not play at Deepdale, need to keep an eye on Barrows who has a bit of space, surprisingly he was let go by Swansea, also have Swift who always seem to cause us a few problems.

Last time out against the Villa

Reading: Mannone, Gunter, McShane ©, Moore, Blackett, Van den Berg (Evans 70), Swift, Kelly, Barrow (Beerens 77), Popa (McCleary 70), Clement.
Unused subs: Jaakkola, Mendes, Bacuna, Ilori.

Given our inability to score at the moment the boss has said he will freshen the side up, apparently Gallagher's head knock has removed his memory of Tuesday's match sadly it is still in mine. Early days yet however in my view we have four points which considering our early fixtures is a bonus, if we have seven by Saturday night consider it highly successful.

Manager Alex Neil may look to make changes to his side for this weekend's visit of Reading.

The North End boss admitted his side lacked their usual energy on Tuesday night at Pride Park, and will bear that in mind when selecting his side to face the Royals on Saturday at Deepdale.

Speaking to iFollow PNE ahead of the game, Neil said: "I think mentally as well as physically we looked a bit jaded in the game in comparison to what we'd done in the previous two matches. It's certainly something we will be looking at, we willl see how the players respond in training and different things and I will have an eye on that looking forward to the game Saturday."

The manager has been pleased with his side on the whole in the league this season, and is preparing to take on Jaap Stam's Reading side next, and feels his side have a good opportunity to add their points tally on home turf.

"I think we've performed well in the main, I think we've had two really good performances out of three. At Derby I think we did ok but not quite enough to win the match, we were disappointed to lose it on a penalty but we've got another great opportunity now to go and try and get another three points on the board.

"I think their style has obviously changed significantly, they make a lot of passes, try and retain the ball, their possession stats have been really high since Jaap has been in there.

"I think it's certainly a team that you can go and get at and you can try and hurt them. Preston played really well against them last season and that's a game that I will be watching before we play and we will set up and go and try to win the game.

"Hopefully the fans will be quite pleased with how we've equipped ourselves so far, we've played some difficult games so far and we've done well so hopefully they will turn out in their droves and support us and hopefully cheer across the line."
The gaffer will have Ben Pearson available after he served a one-match suspension after his sending off at Leeds United, and the manager has reiterated the midfielder's importance to his side.

"I don't think we've got a natural sitting midfield player like Ben which we are trying to address at the moment.

"I think he is a key player for us, when he is missing we do lack something when he's not there.

"It's a great boost for us, he's an important player for us and he does a specific role so we are hoping that he will be bright and ready to go."

Tuesday night's game saw a few casualties in the form of Paul Gallagher and Greg Cunningham, Gallagher with a knock to the back of the head and Cunningham with a knee injury. Ahead of the weekend, the manager
gave an update on the pair and is hopeful that stand-in skipper Greg will be available.
"Paul has got concusion and a bit of whiplash at the moment so we just need to monitor him and hopefully he gets turned around pretty quickly.

"Greg is another one we need to keep an eye on, it's certainly not anything serious, but we are just hoping that he will be fully recovered for the game on Saturday."

Jaap Stam says his team are determined to come away from Preston North End with all three points this weekend.

Royals go into Saturday's match unbeaten in our last three matches in all competitions, with a first Championship victory of the season secured on Tuesday night against Aston Villa.

Despite winning against the Lilywhites at Madejski Stadium last season, Stam says a 3-0 defeat at Deepdale shows the quality of opponent his side will be facing on Saturday.

"We don't look at that result because of last season, 'we lost there so now we need to win,' we know and everybody knows that every game, especially away games, are very, very tough," he said.

"It'll be very hard to beat them, they know how we play. They did last season and they did it very well.

"They're very aggressive going forward, we need to know that they're probably going to be doing that as well.

"We need to be prepared for that, but we will work very hard for ourselves to get a result."

Stam says his side will do whatever it takes to take all three points on Saturday afternoon at Deepdale, after Tuesday night's first victory of the season.

"We want to do that in a certain way of playing, if we can't do that in the way we want to play then we'll do it in a different way.

"That's what we're looking for, and we are warned by what happened last season."

So after 3 home games on the trot we go back on the road and face a proper test in Fulham. They have drawn all their league games so far so will be eager to get that first league win of the season. They were one of the favourite's to get promoted before the season started after finishing last season strongly before losing to Reading in the playoffs. We also are looking for our first league win and getting it on Saturday would definitely be a boost for the players and the fans but its all on how CC sets us up.





LAST MATCH





A second home draw on the trot. After another drab first half and a howler from Westwood we managed to grab a point from the unlikely left foot of Jones. It again needed a change of formation from CC at half time to a more 433 shape. How about starting that way Carlos and get the players playing from the first whistle and not just at halftime. Also we have played 4 games this season and have gone behind in each one. ENOUGH OF THE SLOW STARTS CARLOS Angry  Angry  Angry  Angry

Huddersfield Town v Newcastle United
The Premier League
Sunday August 20th - 13:30 ko
at Leeds Road


[Image: -final-whistle-leeds-road-huddersfield-t...3369-p.jpg]




Huddersfield Town welcome Newcastle Utd to Leeds Road on Sunday afternoon, in front of the Sky Sports cameras again, for the first top flight fixture at the Leeds Road Stadium since a 1-0 defeat by the Wolverhampton Wanderers on the 22nd of April 1972. The crowd that day was a mere 11,677. The crowd on Sunday will be double that.
Town will be looking to continue their good start to the season, when Steve Mounié, a more than adequate replacement for Iwan Roberts, scored twice on his debut. Whereas the Magpies will hope that they can avoid being humiliated live on the telly.
Town have no new injuries reported to add to the long term absentees. Newcastle will be without Jonjo Shelvey, who was sent off on Sunday for stamping on an opponent in the match with Spurs. Also likely to be missing are Florian Lejeune and Paul Dummett who both limped off injured.





A brief history of Newcastle United: formed in the 1890s when Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End merged to become Newcastle United, gained entry to the Football League in 1893. They won promotion to the 1st division in 1898.
In the years before the 1st World war, they won the league title three times (not in a row obviously) and won the FA Cup in 1910, beating Barnsley in the final.
After the war, they won the Cup again, beating Aston Villa in 1924. And in 1927, they were the team who stopped Town winning a 4th consecutive league title, beating us in the table by 5 points. Like us, they have never won it since.
They won the Cup again in 1932, beating Arsenal, but by the end of the decade, as the next war began, they had been relegated and were near the foot of the 2nd division.
After the war, they won the Cup three more times, beating Blackpool in 1951, Arsenal in 1952, and Manchester City in 1955.
The 1960s saw them relegated again, promoted again and by the end of the decade they were playing in Europe, winning the club's last major trophy to date when the won the Inter City Fairs Cup (this was what eventually transformed into the modern day Europa League) in 1969.
Last season they won the Championship.

Head to Head

[Image: hudd-v-new.jpg]

Newcastle lead in the overall head to head with 26 wins to Town's 21, with 15 draws.

The image of the match programme above, is from the last time we beat Newcastle at home. It was on the 28th of December 1963 and we won 3-0 in a 2nd division match with Derek Stokes, Kevin Lewis and Chris Balderstone scoring.

Both games in our last top flight season in 71/72 ended 0-0. Again, despite what people say about the old days, only 12,829 turned out for the home match.

Last season, we beat them at their place 2-1, surprisingly to a lot of people who had no idea what we were about. They know now! Goals that day were from Nahki Wells and Jack Payne. Dwight Gayle got their spawny goal, a rebound from his penalty which Danny Ward had saved.
In the home match it was the Toon who beat the Town 3-1. Matt Ritchie scored first from the penalty spot, before Daryl Murphy made it 2-0 after kicking the ball out of Ward's hands. The ref deemed it not to be a foul though, even though Ward had to go off injured. His replacement Joel Coleman unfortunately was at fault for their third, tapped home by Gayle. Earlier, Aaron Mooy had pulled one back for Town with a penalty.

There was a classic in the League Cup at Sid James' Park in 2009. Town were 3-1 up early in the second half, with two goals from Theo Robinson and one from Jordan Rhodes. But unfortunately we couldn't hold out and ended up losing 4-3.

Back in 1984, Newcastle came to Leeds Road needing a point to win promotion back to the 1st division. A crowd of 25,101 turned up to see the game, most of them geordies, and Town stormed into an early 2-0 lead with both goals coming from Graham Cooper. However, Newcastle came back to draw the match, giving them the point they needed.


[Image: Mills.jpg]
Town v Newcastle 1984



So what's new at Sid James' Park?  Managed nowadays by Kevin Keegan, the former Brut salesman and contestant in the BBC's Superstars programme, known for being a bit of a ranter. He of course, is most famous for his 124 appearances at the Old Showground in the colours of Scunthorpe Utd. Oh and a few years at Liverpool. Oh and ripping his shirt off at Wembley in front of the Queen.
Also, a bit late on in his career he had a bit of time playing in Germany with Hamburg, before moving to Southampton. As one Newcastle fan suggested (Oz in Auf Wiedersehen, Pet); "Hamburg must be a pretty bloody desperate place if he prefers Southampton."








[Image: keegan_2398126b.jpg]


Notable players in their squad:- Malcolm MacDonald, is probably the best known of their squad. Signed from Luton Town, he has already netted 95 times in his Newcastle career. Says he hopes one day to become a successful manager.
Made a name for himself in non league circles with Tonbridge Angels, before Bobby Robson signed him for Fulham for the princely sum of one thousand pounds.

There are others in their squad who are quite well known. Peter Beardsley is one that you may be aware of. He has played a few times for England as well as footballing giants Carlisle Utd, Vancouver Whitecaps and the not so giant Manchester Utd, for whom he never actually played.
Scored 20 goals in Newcastle's promotion season.

Peter Beardsley


In midfield they have a cheeky chappy called Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne. The most naturally gifted English midfielder of his generation, according to some commentators. His hobbies are drinking, eating chicken and fishing.



[Image: stream_img.jpg]


Also in the squad today, Dwight Gayle who likes a goal or two against us. Scottish international Matt Ritchie can be a bit of a cheat so will have to be watched carefully. Alan Shearer, thinks he's ace. Chris Waddle ex Bradford City. And the awesome centre back duo Ant n Dec.

I'll start it off with :-

"We started with a loss of concentration but after this we started to impose our football, we started to create chances.

"We had more chances than Sunderland. We played a very high level of football in the second half.

"We absolutely deserved to win this game with the level of football we played in the second half. We played against a strong team, the way we are playing we will be very strong."
