    You Choose! Predictions for Second Round of FA CUP

    As we are out of the Cup we have no fixture on the 6th December (unless something is late re-arranged) so the question is do we give predicting a miss or predict even though we are not involved? If we give a miss we will reduce this session from 13 to 12 sets of fixtures. If we miss the...

    Slight re-shuffle

    The general set-up for the Prediction League is 4 sessions a year with 13 fixtures in each, i.e. 52 fixtures in all. That is 46 League matches and six cup matches from the FA Cup, League Cup and JPT. However we have been let down by the Cup performances this year and only have a maximum of 49...

    Good news about being out of the FA Cup

    It now means that as we have a blank Saturday on the 6th December 2014, when the 2nd round matches are being played, we can bring forward the Burton away fixture currently scheduled for a mid week fixture on 18th March 2015. It is a win, win, win situation (apart from the result that is!). Will...

    The FA Cup

    How big is the FA Cup to us and to Phil Brown now? Out of the league cup at the first hurdle, out of the JPT Wembley final cup at the first hurdle and languishing in midtable - a side shorn of confidence. I was fiercely disappointed when our manager meekly surrendered both cup competitions and...
