I think I predicted 2-1, probably should've insured it

if this goes green can a mod replace "wolves" with "newcastle"?

Thank you

I went 3-1 Foxes.

I honestly don't know whether to put that in your file or not.

The classified results of the second round of the Pratchett Shield are:
LucklessWonder [45] Vs [70] Kevinatilusa
Rev.K [25] Vs [90] ABTL
CyreneValention
[75] Vs [60] Dietbubba
WhitherApophis[50] Vs [0] Goomba
TheMothership [65] Vs [115] Dead_for_tax_reasons
Langston [70] Vs [105] Princips_Sandwich
DesertGeek [0] Vs [70] Eclectic
NorfolkingChance [0] Vs [70] Wynswrld

Cup holder Dietbubba goes crashing out in the second round, and TheMothership and Langston  are casualties from the top ten and CyreneValention the lowest ranked player still fighting [26th].

The quarter-finalists of the Pratchett Shield are therefore:

Kevinatilusa
ABTL
CyreneValention
WhitherApophis
Dead_for_tax_reasons
Princips_Sandwich
Eclectic
Wynswrld

Draw this round, played next round.
In League news, the top three remains unchanged, but there is only 40 points between EqualOpportunityEnslaverin first and wynswrldin second. Princips_Sandwichanother 40 points back in third and dead_for_tax_reasonsisn't out of it yet, just 100 behind the leader. At the bottom NorfolkingChanceisn't going on the cart just yet, as he's breathing but also zenning.

Nogalltogetherand dead_for_tax_reasons tied for round high score, which I don't recall having happened before? 115 their total. Princips_Sandwich and thethirdmanboth lodged 105s. Terrible week for me, as a blown x3 banker on my own team at home led me to a -30. Ouch! NorfolkingChance in relative balance and harmony and Rev.Kwith a 25 amongst the breathers.

Dietbubbahas sneaked his way back onto Page 1, displacing whither_apophis. In the League of Leagues, FFPL sank another 4 spots to 129th.

Predicting against NUFC is fine. It's being disrespectful, where the definition of that is arbitrarily and variantly determined by The Filemaster.

Game I m and I just got my prediction in.

Arbitrary is right. Just last week I said something nice about Mike Ashl--

His record is a shade of grey. Financially and organizationally the club is in a much better position than it was. We have the best manager we've had in a long time. For the next few weeks at least. There have however been serious mistakes, and deeply unnecessary ones.
 
2019-04-12 03:08:26 PM  
the crowd is loud or the mic is outside the press box
 
2019-04-12 03:09:36 PM

Getting (and keeping) Rafa have been big. I see periods where Newcastle plays brilliantly, but then they fall off and I wonder which team will show up. It's honestly aggravating.

I am not the Pratchett Shield holder currently. I won 2 years ago. Don't remember who won last year

bar comes up big for Leicester
 
2019-04-12 03:16:19 PM  
Oh, that was a brilliant shot except for going in.
 
2019-04-12 03:24:57 PM  
Schmeichel dives to make the catch
 
2019-04-12 03:28:26 PM  
Was not sure Dubravka would hang on to that.
 
2019-04-12 03:28:33 PM  
A fair amount of chances for both side, the finishing quality hasn't been there
 
2019-04-12 03:29:04 PM  
Barnes with a fine run but then shoots right at the keeper.
 
2019-04-12 03:32:50 PM  
Newcastle on the board first
 
2019-04-12 03:33:32 PM  
Feh
 
2019-04-12 03:33:36 PM  
I am surprised that went in.  He really did not catch it cleanly.
 
2019-04-12 03:33:54 PM  
Uh oh the mic is about to go I think

I think I had an 0-0 on this one, that's where the fee came from

Could've been 2 for the Toons

Schar, landed at an angle, but no sub
 
2019-04-12 04:29:36 PM  
Iwantnachos and Mendy in for the foxes
 
2019-04-12 04:37:15 PM  
Vardy with a huge chance, Rooney's it
 
2019-04-12 04:38:27 PM  
Seriously, Vardy?!
 
2019-04-12 04:46:22 PM  
Rafe's pimp hand is in a cast it looked like
 
2019-04-12 04:48:08 PM  
No penalty given
 
2019-04-12 04:51:10 PM  
I am surprised Vardy was used as a sub, and that Leicester have not looked alli there today.
 
2019-04-12 04:53:24 PM  
Yeah, the Magpies are safe.
 
2019-04-12 04:53:35 PM  
Well played and well earned, NU

Son, Alderweireld, and Trippier all benched.

I sense a great disturbance in the force, as if hundreds of thousands of Fantasy players suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.
