Oh and I end with an even 0 on the day.

Hey, guess who randomly started predicting again and put their x3 banker on a 2-1 Tottenham win? This guy.

Unfreakable: Hey, whoever is still around--I could use a thread for today's MLS final


I just submitted a semi-trolly headline.  I'm pissed it's not on a broadcast station.

Wasn't Defoe mentioned as possibly making a move to MLS next season? Tottenham might just give him to someone as a Christmas present if he keeps this up.

Killer Cars: Wasn't Defoe mentioned as possibly making a move to MLS next season? Tottenham might just give him to someone as a Christmas present if he keeps this up.


There was talk of him moving to Toronto, but honestly, theres a lot of lower English teams (PL, Championship) that would probably want him.  But then again, stranger things have happened.

Predictor feeling bad for me so not hitting me for a fail on the West Brom-Norwich match.  Nice even 0 today

midpoint: In other news, I've discovered as league manager that I can see data wrt when you enter your predictions and when and how often you amend them - but not the predictions themselves. Some people enter and are done, others are little tinkerers, aren't they SachBash?


wow called out!
just starting a four month trek across europe so i've had too much time to sit in airports/train stations and second guess my predictions. Fat lot of good its done me though looking at last weeks scores and this weeks -30, with another banker busted.

/On the bright side though with all these upsets, a win tomorrow see's Arsenal 7 point clear!
//Maybe i'll tinker with that pred too, so that its more in line with my hopes...

Time to dig out that stat about how many PL clubs MUFC have played in the cups in recent years.

As funny as this is, it's a bit misleading. Pep was signed by Bayern in January, SAF didn't announce his retirement until April. You really didn't have a good chance of prying Guardiola from the Bavarians on such short notice.

At Bayern he gets a well structured organisation with excellent facilities and culture and an order of magnitude more cash to use than any domestic rivals. At MUFC he gets an imbalanced squad inherited from a legend with hundreds of millions being pumped out* by the owners whilst several other teams have equal or better economic clout.

* Albeit from a huge revenue stream - £153m in sponsorships per annum, more than combined total turnover of all Scottish clubs combined

The FA understands what people want from a competition draw. Thirty seconds of introduction footage, introduce the guest pickets then start drawing.

FIFA and UEFA use the draw as a way to show how important they are while every one else knows it's just a way to pad expense accounts and network for kickbacks.

Also, it is a free draw - no conditions being applied to matches - so if you win it, you earned it.

I can't find an exact date, but I sort of assumed it was written before Pep to Bayern was announced.

Oh well, probably not a bad idea to have insurance on all the games this weekend.

There were three places I wanted to use my insurance chip this week.

Today's probably gonna suck. If I'm going to get a big negative score, I might as well get it with my team, so I bankered a Swansea win.
 
2013-12-08 09:02:35 AM  
Bullshiat penalty for Fulham. The Fulham player is the one who barges into the Villa player and then falls over.

Bernal just doesn't give a crap and rolls the ball into the net

Every time I see the name Go Ahead Eagles, I think of really bad Google Translate results. Who the hell named that team?

In bizarre news that show United just can't get a break, the reason Kagawa missed the Newcastle game was that he needed to get his stomach pumped due to over-eating.

Not terribly surprised that my pred of 2-1 Villa is shot to hell. Forgot all about the New Manager Boost.

Rene actually has us playing football with purpose, as opposed to Jols ugly meandering shiate. If we keep playing the way we did against Spurs on Wed and so far today, I think we'll manage to stay up. At least have hope now.

So my "bank on Fulham losing" rule is blowing up in my face.

The thing I heard a bit yesterday was questions on why Moyes didn't keep Rene on at MU and whether keeping him would've made life easier for Moyes up there. Matches like this make me wonder the same thing.

I'll take another failed pred today if that means Everton beats Arsenal and keeps the Gunners within 4 of Liverpool.

Everton has been on pretty good form recently.  Arsenal at home is a real challenge, though.

I got +45 from a Spurs banker, that may be the only positive I have.
 
2013-12-08 10:45:14 AM  
Lukaku will be a handful today. Am interested in seeing the development of Jenkinson today, I'm sure Martinez will be sending some traffic down the left flank to test him.

If  Arsenal can get a two-goal lead, I'd like to see Giroud get a rest and a 10-20 minute run- out of Poldi to bring him back to match fitness. Not sure if Arsenal will achieve that kind of cushion against a team as tough as Everton. Defense has to keep Lukaku from getting room to play his game.

Damn, Poldi's not back yet. On the upside, Flamini appears to be back from that hamstring niggle if we need him.

This was my insurance game. Tough test for both teams with great players and smart coaches.

Amidst the sleepless nights few hours and anger at Moyes, Everton played well on Wednesday and deserved to win. They have a clear plan of what they're doing.

Having said that, the alternative to Arsenal winning the title is Liverpool, Chelsea or City, so I'm all aboard the Gooner bandwagon.
