is on the increase. Especially amongst young males. Why?
Benitez goes – Duncan Ferguson takes over. Interesting as Everton are/were sliding downwards.
Liverpool in contract discussions with Salah – will they sell hi to pay for Haaland? Or will ManC come up with £250 million, or will he be off to Real Madrid (Barca probably cannot afford him?), or PSG (pocket a couple of hundred million and move on).
The English Football League has removed the need for clubs to test players for Covid-19 on matchdays in an effort to prevent late postponements.
5 more postponements for the weekend. The FA will need to act soon before the disruption to the fixture list becomes unbalanced. Already we have seen no postponements for the top 3, whilst Spurs are already 3 games in arrears, Brentford and Burnley 2. The top clubs may have large enough squads, but with the African Nations Cup coming up there needs to be forward planning. It also needs to be set out clearly in advance to ensure fairness.
Why are women football teams always named women as a suffix? American sports use different suffix for different sports – we should do the same for womens’ sport.
It is like Hillsborough never happened. There seem to be a number of organisations who should conduct their own internal reviews to make sure it does not happen again.
The latest table shows the field bunching up. Harvey and Lola are catching up. With 16 points available for the winner each week the table can change rapidly.
Bragging rights. Having wallowed at the bottom of our little league table for a while I am on a roll this week with 6 correct results including 3 correct scores out of the 8 games so far! Week 14 can be viewed here
In some ways next weekend is week 15, so week 14 is this mid week thing. So entry to this weeks mid – week bit is here and week 14 at the weekend will follow.
So far we have only 2 correct scores Adam and Archie correctly getting 4-0 for Liverpool v Southampton. Most got Arsenal result correct but only a couple correctly forecast Villa win at CP (Will the Gerrard effect continue?). Are draws harder to predict? But 6 of us got Brighton v Leeds but only 3 got Norwich v Wolves. So 40% of games 0-0, of 70 predictions zero said 0-0?
