  1. No easy games (at this l - e - v - yaaaawwn - e - l ), although Wycombe appear to be as close as it gets to one (at this, er, "level"). Most Championship sides found Rotherham in 2016/17 relatively "easy," and that was at this "level," too. I'd pay to see Wycombe 2020 v Rotherham 16/17. Just to see who is/was worst.
  2. I forgot about them being 8th, and having a game in hand and all that. Good point. Be interesting if they get more than 23 points, then. And we will be taking six off them, no excuses. We only managed 4 points from the two games against Rotherham 2016/17 (statistically the poorest second tier side since the last World War, need I remind you) though, so we shall see.
  3. Bit harsh on babies. Babies get a bad rap on here, as do "school boys" and their "errors" and their being on here giving the big adults cheek and jip when they should be doing their "homework," or something more constructive during their holidays, or be in bed (with the lights off).
  4. Yippee, yippee aye aye, yay yay yay! C'mon, let's Dance Like Deano: Here's to more Happy Mondays.......
  5. If we have "overtaken" Stoke as a club, it isn't yet immediately obvious to the outsider looking in/on. Only promotion to the Prem - for us - or relegation to L1 - for them - might make it plain. But who would put money on us winning promotion from this level before Stoke? With our record/history? Not many would.
  6. On history it's no contest, although as I mentioned above they cannot match our highest ever finish in English football of 2nd. On fanbase, it's worth noting that when they pipped us to promotion in 2008, they averaged 16,800 that season. We averaged 16,200. Prior to reaching the Prem under Pulis, they hadn't averaged 20,000 or more since 1980 (when they were in the old 1st division). Relegated just five years after us, in 1985, they averaged 10,700 that season (in the top division), whereas we averaged 18,000 when relegated in 1980. They had a bigger support while rubbing Arse
  7. And the highest they have ever finished in English football is 4th (in 1936), compared to our 2nd. Good luck to them ever beating that.
  8. But who did Nicky replace - have we replaced him?
  9. Step forward that sacked head coach/smarmy chief executive /sacked scout/sacked stat analyst/other (probably sacked) former "behind the scenes" employee - well done sir/madam. And thank you.
  10. They'll do well to do worse than Rotherham 2016/17, who were relegated with 23 points from 46 games (5 wins, 8 draws). Only Barnsley in 52/3(18 points), Port Vale 57/8 (22 points), Watford 72/3 (19 points) and Sheff Weds 75/6 (21 points) managed to win fewer points - but as I need not tell you, that was in 42 games, not 46. Going by points per game and adjusting for three points for a win, Rotherham in 2016/17 are/were statistically the worst second tier side since WW2. And when we scraped past them that season 1:0 at home, our manager at the time talked up his brave decision to
  11. I remember my lad, about 9, not so long ago, playing in defence for a South Glos junior team. He tried to play it out from the back, on the deck, and when it went wrong, the coach and others shouting: "Get rid!" And other similar, enlightened instructions. The panic on the touchline seeped on to the field. I thought we had got rid of the "Get Rid!" Charles Hughes/bulldog thing in kiddies football?
  12. His father told him to mind his own business. Seems fair enough to me
  13. Fam today, but no Fam tomorrow
