Lots of Mahrez rumors to Man City happening again

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footbal...-City.html

Leicester have completed the signing of James Maddison from Norwich for a fee rising to £24million.

The midfielder has agreed a five-year contract at the King Power Stadium with the Foxes' summer spending now nearly £50m.

Southampton and Everton held a firm interest in the 21-year-old but a switch to Leicester was Maddison's first choice and the transfer is a record Sky Bet Championship sale.

  Europa League 1st round quali League draw - it's NSI Runavik!
Posted by: 0762 - 20-06-2018, 13:16 - Forum: Hibernian - Replies (3)

So Hibs draw a Faroese footie team, a 1st time opponent. It is not a bad draw but remember we are effectively in a pre-season prep situation - gotta be wary but reasonably confident that we will take care of this team and move on to the second quali round.

Posted by: turkeydinner - 20-06-2018, 11:26 - Forum: Macclesfield Town - Replies (1)

Macclesfield Town are delighted to announce the appointment of Mark Yates as new first-team manager. Mark joins the Football Club from National League Solihull Moors and has signed a three-year deal with the Silkmen.

48-year-old Yates joins after an incredible season with Solihull Moors, which saw him pull off a great escape after arriving with the club adrift at the bottom of the National League in November.

Yates, who as a player enjoyed a career with the likes of Burnley and Birmingham, has also had successful spells in charge of Kidderminster, Cheltenham and Crawley is excited about his new position.

West Ham have signed goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski from Swansea City on a three-year deal.

The Hammers have agreed a fee of around £7m for the Poland international, who will fill the void left by Joe Hart after he returned to parent club Manchester City.

Fabianski becomes West Ham's third summer signing after France U21 centre-back Issa Diop and defender Ryan Fredericks.

He`s done well at Swansea, not sure if these are the signings WHU fans want compared to Felipe Anderson

  World Cup Group tables (Round 1 scores)
Posted by: bomberbrown1968 - 20-06-2018, 10:29 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (10)

   

With the first round of matches now behind us, the early frontrunners all had good rounds, but the fancied seed of the group is the one lagging behind at this early stage.

Group 1 is the only one to have an absentee as Sanjay didn’t turn up to the party, leaving 4 players to fight it out for the two qualifying places up for grabs.

Stairs sets the early pace with 9 correct predictions, 3 of which were correct scores, a correct Bonus in the opening game of the tournament and the only player earning an extra point gained on the new Score Ball.

Sitting just 4 points back in joint 2nd are Salop and St Charles who returned an identical set of scores, including a totally blank Sunday, but 3 out of 3 on Monday including their Bonus Balls with maximum points gained for them as Belgium got off to a winning start.

Our title winner from the domestic season, DD, brings up the rear for now, a full 10 points behind, summed up by drawing a blank in the final 3 games of the round.

It’s too early to write anybody off yet though as we head straight into round 2, in just a few hours.  

Bomber


   

Some good consistent scoring in this group. Joker takes top spot so far, mainly due to being the only one who picked up points on the Gamball, he also got his extra point with the Score ball.

Zinman is just a few points behind, mainly due to the Gamball being incorrect.

Bit of a gap down to Matt, who failed to get any scores correct and Vicar, who failed on both the Gamball and Bonus, though there are plenty of points up for grabs still.

4eva brings up the rear, missing out on any points from any of his balls!!

Cheers
SCO

   

Impressive scoring from the first round of fixtures for Group 3 sees BBB heading the table - but as I suspect someone might remind us, it's a marathon not a sprint (except in this case it's probably more of a middle distance race, so no hanging back for too long, Beefy).

BBB's lead at this early stage is due to his 9 correct result predictions including his bonus.

Close in second place is Derby, equalling BBB's 3 correct scores and again scoring big on his bonus.

The changed scoring system damaged Quantum - the only player to get the gamball correct - and he was also the only one to gain from the new score ball.

Worldclass stays in contention just a point behind in 4th place.

And then comes Beefy, languishing far behind the rest with his recent promotion now just a fading memory.

Zin


   

A great start from Bomber who from 17 games, predicted correctly on 9 a decent Bonus Ball and our first score ball got Bomber to an impressive 21 points.

A good start for Amelia in 2nd place with 12 points two correct scores helping her to gatecrash the first runners up spot.

The other 3 will have some catching up to do, Snoots with 7 points lies third, Twerton with 5 points is in 4th and BaggieOne is bringing up the rear on just 3 points.

A long way to go yet with still 30 odd matches to go in the group stages and the last 16 fixtures makes that up to around 46 games still to predict on, just a few good results and I'm waiting for that first important correct Gamball to pop up that will make all the difference.

  World Cup Prediction League Cup Matchday 3
Posted by: Lord Snooty - 20-06-2018, 08:23 - Forum: World Cup 2018 - Replies (24)

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

For the benefit of new players who haven't seen our game before, 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. From this matchday onwards, badgers have to be something that I can check on BBC stats. So not things like "Germany's manager scratches his arse and sniffs his fingers". OK?  Big Grin
Also for those of you who haven't played before, 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.

Posted by: turkeydinner - 19-06-2018, 23:12 - Forum: Dumbarton - No Replies

The 30-year-old has vast experience of higher levels of Scottish football, having most recently turned out for Falkirk.

Chairman John Steele added: "This is another feather in the club's cap that we are able to secure a player of Rory's quality.
