ADubs86: 2-0 mitigates Arse's mistake so I need the mackems Toon to score another and hold.


Shut up, I'm drinking.

i was thinking this match might see 5-6 goals.

Hah, thats crazy, 41%? Great minds and all that.

At least he made himself easy to find by bragging about it on facebook. Idiot.

Shiat. There's another ten points gone.
I suck at this.

Is it just me or does Danny Rose seem like a little biatch?

Jonas just made Suarez look respectable.

Looks like 41% got a perfect on this one. Sorry Midpoint, as a Fulham man I know how it feels to lose pts on those late goals. Hell of a physical match.

I'll take a point. 10 men for most of the match away you take what you can get. With 11 I think we would have won it.

I am the 41%

Collocini played immense today. Sunderland only picked up when he got hurt.

Relatively happy with the result though. Tiote should've never been sent off and that changed the whole game. I'll take the point though.

The north-east fed more men into WW1 than any other region of the UK. Hard boys. 200 years ago would have been wearing red-tunics and overrunning China/India etc.

From the BBC:
Lots of players not wearing Kick it Out t-shirts in the warm-up at Loftus Road. For QPR: Anton Ferdinand, Nedum Onuoha, Junior Hoilett, Djibril Cisse and Shaun Wright-Phillips. For Everton: Steven Pienaar, Sylvain Distin and Victor Anichebe.

So what was the point of wearing the shirts if players are opting out of it at will? Even if you don't like the expediency of the board's decisions, at least support the general cause.
In bigger news, Shaun Wright-Phillips is still playing?

And apparently SAF fined Rio 220k pounds for not wearing one yesterday and "embarrassing" him.

I had my banker on the Man Utd game even though it was x2. Looks like it was a good choice! I had 2-2 for Newcastle/Sunderland so at least I get 20 points for a correct draw. I have the Everton game as 2-1 for Everton so hopefully that works out as well!

I do think it's a bit rich of Rio to get on his soapbox about racism in the game, then go on Twitter and call Ashley Cole an Oreo for supporting his teammate.

Meanwhile in Norway:

1. Rosenborg: played 26, 52 points.
2. Molde: played 25, 51 points.
3. Stromsgodset: played 25, 48 points.

It's a 30-game season, and the top three still have to play each other, starting with Stromsgodset against Molde tonight. If you remember, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer led Molde to their first ever title in his first season in charge last year.

/That's my bandwaggoning done for the day.
//Stromsgodset is an awesome name.

Well that was fast. Sucks for Baines and Timmy.
 
2012-10-21 11:06:35 AM  

midpoint: Cognitive Displaysia: Morning gents. Pulling for the Toon in the early game, but have it scored 1-1 w/ insurance.

41% of the 70,000 players have done the same, including me.


41.1%. And my first prediction since I joined.

Indeed. Tears my prediction of 2-0 to Everton as well. Lot of time left though.

Ditto...those points will make up for a mediocre Saturday (thank you very much Arsenal).

C'mon 1-1 Everton QPR....

Almost got it there.

There can't be too many teams in history who signed players from Man United, Chelsea, Inter, Real Madrid and Marseille in such a short space of time.

And still Ryan Nelsen gets a game.
 
2012-10-21 11:53:09 AM  
Nice! Took a last-second 15/2 bet on an own goal to happen this game. And Post with the assist

And Pienaar's gone. Great, this prediction looks lost as well. -20 for the day, here I come.
 
2012-10-21 12:26:07 PM  
I don't get how the announcers are backing that call. Warned or not, there shouldn't have even been a whistle blown for that.
 
2012-10-21 12:26:58 PM  
How come that guy has no number?
 
2012-10-21 12:30:07 PM  
Great save from Cesar. Should have been 2-1 Everton.

HaywoodJablonski: How come that guy has no number?


I noticed that too. No premier patches either. And that was a horrible call on the send off.
 
2012-10-21 12:31:12 PM

Had to replace his shirt for having blood on it.

Blood on his shirt. You might think they'd have a spare at home... but no,
