Re: Funny relegation story - supporter gets jailed?

I think maybe some of the details have changed over time but I do clearly remember this story, though with a few subtle changes. It wasn't a supporter, it was actually Swiss winger Tranquillo Barnetta, of Bayer Leverkusen. And he wasn't jailed as such, but did spend a significant term, some 6 months...

Re: Bruce staying

I think with the players Rafa had he did a very, very good job. I'm not sure many would have done better. That central midfield was and is woeful. He found a system that basically didn't need it. I'd have him back in a hearbeat.

Re: Cheltenham Festival 2021

His last horse ended up falling too! Great sell by him. Spiritofthegames finished 8 today - very frustrating as he was the biggest bet - but Hunstmans Cross nabbed 6th at 40/1 and Storm Control managed to get into the places too at 16/1. Tomorrow I am quite strong on these Zanahiyr - Race 1 - Boring...

Re: Cheltenham Festival 2021

Not the best day yesterday but it can't always be sunshine and bubbles. Guard Your Dreams just ran into the top 7 and Sir Gerhard did indeed turn over the odds on favourite in the bumper. Hard to be too confident today but with lots of top 6 and top 7 races, Ive thrown a few bullets around at big pr...

Re: Cheltenham Festival 2021

An interesting day today, Black Tear nutting Concertista right on the jam stick before Saint Sam only found an 80/1 rag too good. Day 2 is loaded with quality but also devoid of a certain spark. In the first I do like Gaillard de Mesnil 9/4 to lower the flag of the favourite Bob Olinger and in the 2...

Re: Cheltenham Festival 2021

Race two should go to the odds on Shishkin and race three could well be another favourite in Happygolucky. Those who like big prices eachway could maybe do worse than Vintage Clouds . He was 2nd and 3rd in this race before finishing down the field last year. He's been in no sort of form since then a...

Re: Cheltenham Festival 2021

Appreciate it beats Ballyadam. As predicted favourite way too good, but pleased the each-way selection got 2nd. A good start.

Re: Cheltenham Festival 2021

As uninspiring as a day at the Cheltenham Festival as I can remember on Tuesday. The first race - the Supreme - sees Appreciate It a warm favourite. Trained by Willie Mullins, who has a fine record in this race (and in most races) in recent years, his main danger to my eye looks to be fellow Irish r...

Cheltenham Festival 2021

It's Cheltenham on Tuesday - 4 days of horse racing as good as anywhere in the world. I'lll be watching all the action from home with a Guinness or two and sharing some fancies on here and hopefully we can have some craic and we can win a few quid together. We did this a few years back and think we ...

Sadly can relate to this. Relegation seems to all too inevitable. Hey, at least we could all say we were right all along.

Re: Remaining Matches and Points Total

I think Brighton will be absolutely fine. They battered Palace and were the better team against Leicester. Results will turn. Fulham are our best hope - they have a difficult run now and although they're playing some good stuff, it's up to us to step up and pick up points starting with 3 against Vil...

Re: Relegation special - WBA v NUFC

Both teams will be in the Championship. Poor football, poor managers, poor tactics & very poor game. No intensity or real tempo. Lots of hoof-ball / long-ball. No genuine quality. Why would you it leave till the last minute to put Carroll on? should have given 15 mins at least.. Murphy or S.Longsta...

Re: WEEKEND FOOTBALL - 6/8 MARCH 2021

It's at the point now where if you offered me the chance to be 2 points behind them on the last day of the season, with Wilson ASM and Miggy fit, I'd probably deal and take our chance that we can nick a win.
