  2. Did you know that 17 is the sixth Mersenne prime exponent, yielding 131071? You do now. Anyway, this is round 17. If you fancy it, predict the following scores and remember to include your joker. Kick-off is Saturday at 3. Good luck! Middlesbrough v Millwall Swansea City v Blackpool Fleetwood Town v Morecambe Sunderland v Ipswich Town Barrow v Crawley Town Bristol Rovers v Tranmere Rovers Barnet v Torquay United Woking v Stockport County
  3. Sounds like a close game that unfortunately went against us. At the same time I'm encouraged that we could give one of the better League Two sides a good and even game. Personally I'd have found it very sobering if they'd blown us out of the water. Wipe your mouth and carry on, as they say here.
  4. The actual results: Burton Albion 0-1 Charlton Athletic Ipswich Town 0-0 Oxford United Rochdale 2-2 Leyton Orient Stevenage 1-2 Mansfield Town Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Sutton United Maidenhead United 1-4 Dagenham & Redbridge Wealdstone 1-0 Barnet Yeovil Town 2-1 Eastleigh --- Congratulations to this week's winner, @liampie! You win a hen's tooth (self-collection only). @liampie - 10 @DangerousSausage, @Chris - 8 @Dripsey3 - 6 @Dan, @4everapie, @magpiejue, @ARLukomski - 5 @gtownjohnno, @jimbob - 4 @nottsnutter - 2 @super_ram, @Megan_Elizax, @GrannyPie - 1 --- Without further ado, here's the table. @Dripsey3 is still at the top, @Chris gains another couple of places: Dripsey3 - 115 Dan - 113 gtownjohnno - 101 nottsnutter - 90 4everapie - 88 super_ram - 86 magpiejue - 85 DangerousSausage - 83 jimbob - 83 ARLukomski - 72 Chris - 66 Megan_Elizax - 65 barnet11uk - 64 GrannyPie - 57 KB1862 - 52 liampie - 40 Feral Fox - 29 Joshua - 25 allardyces tash - 19 TheSkipper - 16 Alex - 7 CliftonMagpie - 6 Canadian - 4 --- The next round will be next Saturday, so expect the fixtures to pop up here on Wednesday as per usual. Have a good week!
  5. Brilliant crowd, brilliant result! That win was anything but routine - Solihull might not be a "name", but they had conceded one goal in 12 hours of football before yesterday. And it's great news that Kairo has found his shooting boots too. Definitely! But as long as the fans keep the faith, we'll make it eventually. The tickets might have been cheap, but 12,000 people still cared enough about the club to buy those tickets and make their way to Meadow Lane, even for a NL match. That counts for a lot. Going off on a slight tangent now, but we're currently on course for three consecutive top-five finishes for only the second time in our entire history. Yes, it's only the NL, but we're turning into a club that expects to win more often than not. Don't underestimate the impact that can have on a club and its culture.
  6. FA Cup winners qualify for the Europa League, so maybe then? Would be good to have a Greek or Turkish team in our group. But we have to beat Rochdale first.
  7. I've never been that fussed about post-match interviews, but I do tend to watch Burchnall's. He comes across very well and clearly has a good knowledge of the game. Of course, there's a difference between recognising where things are going wrong and putting them right, and that'll be the proof of the pudding in the long term. Ardley was similar. Both of them take responsibility and never give you the feeling they were watching a different game. On the other side of the spectrum there are managers who are immediately on the defensive and who try to fob off the interviewer with cliches. No names, but John Sheridan and Harry Kewell will know who I mean.
  8. Here are the right answers. Burton Albion 1-2 Charlton Athletic Ipswich Town 2-1 Oxford United Rochdale 1-1 Leyton Orient Stevenage 0-2 Mansfield Town (joker) Tranmere Rovers 0-2 Sutton United Maidenhead United 1-0 Dagenham & Redbridge Wealdstone 1-2 Barnet Yeovil Town 2-1 Eastleigh
  9. After a short break, we're back in action! As usual, predict the following fixtures, remember to use your jokers, and try not to beat me please kick-off is Saturday at 3! Burton Albion v Charlton Athletic Ipswich Town v Oxford United Rochdale v Leyton Orient Stevenage v Mansfield Town Tranmere Rovers v Sutton United Maidenhead United v Dagenham & Redbridge Wealdstone v Barnet Yeovil Town v Eastleigh
  10. Another tricky opponent - 2 defeats out of 14 speaks for itself. But if we want to win the league, we should be aiming to win at home, whoever the visitors are. I'll go for a nail-biting 2-1 win. But it's just as likely we'll end up "respecting the point". I think Neal Ardley will get a good reception, but he can leave the points in Nottingham!
  11. There were some really good chances for both sides. Could definitely have been more goals. As for the penalty shout at the end, my initial reaction is that he went down looking for it. There may well have been contact, but that doesn't automatically make it a penalty - unfortunately, the poor camera angle means we can't see how much contact there was. The ref had a better view and didn't give it.
  12. One all and a replay, just as I predicted on Facebook. Surely that's got to be worth points in the prediction league?? Not a shabby result, was hoping we'd match them and it appears we've done just that. Just a shame we didn't finish them off.
  13. I'm aware the lottery laws are (rightly) quite restrictive, but an associate membership without prizes but with the proceeds going to the same places could avoid this. Of course, the question is whether it's really worth the hassle. Fans near Nottingham support the club by buying tickets, and most of those further afield buy merchandise instead.
  14. The club runs a scheme called Lifeline, which is a members-only lottery that contributes money to the club. It's capped at 2500 members and is currently full. Maybe a kind of associate membership with no or different prizes would be an idea - for overseas fans and for those on the waiting list.
  15. Keith Hill's holier-than-thou whining was seriously annoying and made winning the championship ahead of them all the more sweet. In the present day, there isn't really any pressure on us. Rochdale seem to have hit form and will be feeling confident, but I'd still like to have a good go at them instead of giving them too much respect. For what it's worth, I think it'll be a tight game and ultimately a draw.
  16. Perhaps he's operating on a shoestring budget at Hartlepool and feels he can take Stockport further? But the money they're throwing at him no doubt made the decision an easy one It must be soul-destroying for Pools fans to lose a promotion-winning manager to a team a division below, and of course it's a crude attempt from Stockport to buy promotion. It's easy to take the moral high ground, but it feels a bit hypocritical at our end - we have several players who could've been playing higher up, but chose to join us instead. There's a handful of NL clubs, us included, that can blow most of League Two out of the water financially, so things like this will happen.
  17. The results: Huddersfield Town 1-0 Millwall Swansea City 3-0 Peterborough United Cambridge United 1-0 AFC Wimbledon Portsmouth 1-0 Bolton Wanderers Barrow 1-2 Rochdale Leyton Orient 5-0 Hartlepool United Bromley 0-0 Halifax Town Eastleigh 1-0 Maidenhead United --- For the first time this season, @ARLukomski has this week's highest score with 8 points! @ARLukomski - 8 @super_ram - 7 @Dripsey3, @gtownjohnno, @magpiejue, @KB1862 - 6 @Dan, @nottsnutter, @4everapie, @DangerousSausage, @barnet11uk, @Chris - 4 @GrannyPie - 3 @jimbob - 2 @Megan_Elizax - 1 --- And on that bombshell, @Dripsey3 has once again overtaken @Dan to take top spot, while @gtownjohnno still lurks ominously in third. Dripsey3 - 109 Dan - 108 gtownjohnno - 97 nottsnutter - 88 super_ram - 85 4everapie - 83 magpiejue - 80 jimbob - 79 DangerousSausage - 75 ARLukomski - 67 barnet11uk - 64 Megan_Elizax - 64 Chris - 58 GrannyPie - 56 KB1862 - 52 liampie - 30 Feral Fox - 29 Joshua - 25 allardyces tash - 19 TheSkipper - 16 Alex - 7 CliftonMagpie - 6 Canadian - 4 --- Because of this new fangled "FA Cup" that we have decided to participate in this season, the prediction league will be taking a week's break. The next fixtures will be on Saturday 13 November, so expect to see the next round posted here the Wednesday before that. In the meantime, I will float around the board offering nuggets of wisdom on important matters, such as: which 80s players had the best moustaches? And did Clive Platt really have a 19-year career in the Football League, or was it all just a fever dream? Take care!
  18. I think there are arguments to be had for both sides of it. When the clocks go back you do get another hour of sunlight in the morning, but it's dark again so quickly it always struck me as a pointless exercise.
  19. I remember seeing an interview from Clough at the start of the season, when he tore into Hewitt's "efforts" at right back. The news that he's quite possibly the worst right back in the entire world obviously hadn't reached him.
  20. And that's why you never leave a match early.
  21. Huddersfield Town 2-1 Millwall Swansea City 2-0 Peterborough United (joker) Cambridge United 1-1 AFC Wimbledon Portsmouth 1-1 Bolton Wanderers Barrow 1-1 Rochdale Leyton Orient 2-1 Hartlepool United Bromley 1-0 Halifax Town Eastleigh 0-1 Maidenhead United
  22. Sounds like another solid performance, sadly not rewarded with all three points due to questionable defending. Very frustrating, but if we can win at Grimsby (OK, that's a huge if), it's been a good week. Bit frustrating that we're already playing catch-up so early in the season, but we are where we are.
  23. Was just missing the glamour of League Two, so had a look at the table. What on earth are Mansfield doing? Down in the relegation zone and without a win since about 1982. Are they missing their annual jollies to Meadow Lane? I thought they might be onto something with a seasoned manager like Nigel Clough, but instead they're doing a passable impression of us. What's going on?
  24. Before you all start carving your pumpkins, there's another prediction league round to play. As usual, the fixtures all kick off at 3pm on Saturday, and remember your jokers! Huddersfield Town v Millwall Swansea City v Peterborough United Cambridge United v AFC Wimbledon Portsmouth v Bolton Wanderers Barrow v Rochdale Leyton Orient v Hartlepool United Bromley v Halifax Town Eastleigh v Maidenhead United
  25. The results: Birmingham City 2-1 Swansea City Blackpool 2-0 Preston North End Shrewsbury Town 4-1 Cambridge United Accrington Stanley 2-2 Portsmouth Bristol Rovers 1-3 Newport County Hartlepool United 3-2 Harrogate Town Chesterfield 2-1 Boreham Wood Solihull Moors 1-0 Halifax Town --- @jimbob and @Chris were this week's winners - congrats! @jimbob, @Chris - 9 @Dripsey3 - 8 @Dan, @nottsnutter, @magpiejue, @Joshua - 7 @gtownjohnno, @super_ram - 5 @4everapie, @DangerousSausage, @ARLukomski - 3 @Megan_Elizax, @GrannyPie - 2 --- In our overall table, @Dan and @Dripsey3 now both have more than 100 points - it took five more rounds to reach that milestone last season. Looks like I've got to dock a lot of points if I'm to have a hope of winning it this season Dan - 104 Dripsey3 - 103 gtownjohnno - 91 nottsnutter - 84 4everapie - 79 super_ram - 78 jimbob - 77 magpiejue - 74 DangerousSausage - 71 Megan_Elizax - 63 barnet11uk - 60 ARLukomski - 59 Chris - 54 GrannyPie - 53 KB1862 - 46 liampie - 30 Feral Fox - 29 Joshua - 25 allardyces tash - 19 TheSkipper - 16 Alex - 7 CliftonMagpie - 6 Canadian - 4 --- Round 15 is on Saturday, so expect the fixtures to be posted on Wednesday. Take care!
