    Congrats to this round's winner, @magpiejue! @jimbob and @Dan also reached double figures, and I have a feeling our resident Stag will be happier with Chesterfield's result than the rest of us were :D

  3. Thanks for the ratings, I followed it on the radio but that always gives you a much more limited impression of individual performances.

    I was initially really frustrated that Rodders will be missing for Chesterfield, but going by this, being forced to give him a rest and play Roberts further forward could prove to be a blessing in disguise.

    Certain occupations should be mandatory, but to remove freedom of choice across the board would be unbelievable.

    The German Thatcher doesn't really have any say over this. In Germany, the powers that be want to do it - get vaccinated or get fined. Not sure what would happen if people didn't pay their fines - there won't be any forced vaccinations, so how many people can you drag through court at the same time? Apart from the logistics of it I'm not overly keen on the idea, but during a pandemic the choices you make are not just your own - they affect a LOT of other people. 

    It would be easiest if people just got jabbed, as unvaccinated people make up the thumping majority of ICU patients right now. Unfortunately, here in Germany there is a pronounced tendency for people to think they know better than the experts. 

    I got boostered at the weekend. Felt slightly hungover the next day but it was worth it. 

  5. Another Saturday, another prediction league round, another chance for unparalleled glory (or at least some points). You know what to do - send in your predictions by 3pm on Saturday, and remember your jokers!


    AFC Bournemouth v Blackburn Rovers

    Hull City v Bristol City

    Fleetwood Town v Gillingham

    Sunderland v Plymouth Argyle

    Bristol Rovers v Rochdale

    Stevenage v Carlisle United

    Grimsby Town v Chesterfield

    Yeovil Town v Barnet

  6. The results:

    Accrington Stanley 0-2 AFC Wimbedon
    Charlton Athletic 2-0 Ipswich Town
    Cheltenham Town 0-5 Cambridge United
    Portsmouth 0-0 Sheffield Wednesday
    Exeter City 1-2 Northampton Town
    Leyton Orient 4-1 Swindon Town
    Newport County 3-2 Sutton United
    Southend United 1-1 Maidenhead United


    Some strange results there, but a handful of you had a very good round - best of all @gtownjohnno and @GrannyPie! Some of the rest of us were held back by Southend's lamentable failure to beat even Maidenhead at home and Cheltenham's decision to roll over and have their bellies tickled by Cambridge. A plague on both of their houses.

  7. Yes and no @Elite_pie. We shouldn't kid ourselves into thinking that making the playoffs is easy, it isn't and the league is extremely competitive this season. But a points average of 1.78 per game is very high - that would equate to 82 points over a 46-game season and not all of the top nine will be able to keep that pace for the rest of the season. In the past, a points total in the low or mid 70s has been enough to finish in the top seven. I don't think a team with 80 points has ever finished below seventh. 

    To win the league, you need more than 90. 80 will be comfortably enough for the playoffs, 70 and we miss out. 

  8. After a week's break thanks to that strange "cup" competition other teams play in, we've got a busy week for the prediction league coming up. These fixtures all kick off at 7.45pm on TUESDAY, so I'll need your predictions by then, and remember your jokers!


    Accrington Stanley v AFC Wimbedon

    Charlton Athletic v Ipswich Town

    Cheltenham Town v Cambridge United

    Portsmouth v Sheffield Wednesday

    Exeter City v Northampton Town

    Leyton Orient v Swindon Town

    Newport County v Sutton United

    Southend United v Maidenhead United

  9. Any of those teams could win the league, we're shaping up for a proper battle royale. Bit concerned that Wrexham and Stockport have hit form, especially with their blank cheque books. Another striker to give us that something extra, reduce our reliance on Wootton and turn some of the draws into wins could make all the difference - but that striker wouldn't be a guaranteed starter, which limits our options.

    Gut feeling? Boredom Wood.

  10. It takes two to tango - I think it's a given that the club will want to extend his contract, but does the player? He know he'll have a contract offer from Notts come what may. If he doesn't sign now, in the summer he'll have offers from other clubs higher up that maybe wouldn't have been interested in paying a fee. So from a cold, sober point of view I can understand the player's point of view in wanting to see other offers, and in turn I can understand the logic of clubs looking to sell in January rather than losing a player on a free in the summer. 

    I still hope he signs a contract extension though. He's never pulled up trees anywhere else, but at Notts he knows where he is and he knows he's onto a good thing. 

  11. The results:

    Peterborough United 0-0 Barnsley
    Stoke City 0-1 Blackburn Rovers
    Bolton Wanderers 2-2 Cheltenham Town
    Plymouth Argyle 1-2 Wigan Athletic
    Northampton Town 1-0 Leyton Orient
    Swindon Town 1-1 Harrogate Town
    Grimsby Town P-P Boreham Wood
    Wrexham 2-0 Bromley


    This week's winner is @barnet11uk, with honourable mentions going to @Dan, @Chris and @GrannyPie!

    And now the prediction league goes into a week-long hibernation, as the FA Cup (which apparently has something called a "second round") is this coming this weekend. So our next round will be on Tuesday 7 December, and I'll post the fixtures the weekend before. See you then!
