  1. UK Weekend > Feb 18th - 20th

    BARNSLEY V BRIGHTON Barnsley have midfielder Alex Mowatt available for the visit of Brighton after a three-match suspension. Defender Aidy White remains sidelined with a pelvic injury. Victory at Oakwell will take Brighton to the top of the Championship table in Chris Hughton's 100th league game in charge of the Seagulls. Left-back Gaetan Bong (knee) will be assessed, Liam Rosenior (ankle) is still recovering from long-term injury and Connor Goldson (heart) is out. When asked about his 100th league match in charge, Brighton manager Chris Hughton told BBC Sussex: "That's news to me. Let's hope come Saturday evening that it's good news. "I've thoroughly enjoyed the period of time that I've been here right from day one and we've been building towards something. "Yes, it's a very nice milestone as it's a wonderful place to have it. But the win on Saturday would be a better milestone." On the test Barnsley will present:"When we played Barnsley earlier in the season we were aware and impressed by how good a side they are. "They're still going well on the back of a very good win at Villa in the week, so credit to the players and all the management for achieving that." MATCH FACTS -Barnsley have failed to score in their last two league games against Brighton (D1 L1). -Brighton won the reverse of this fixture 2-0 in September - they have not done a league double over Barnsley since the 1991-92 campaign. - Barnsley have scored a league-high 15 headed goals in the Championship this season. -Brighton have conceded a league-high proportion of their goals from opposition headers (35%). - Hemed has scored in each of his last five league appearances for Brighton (six goals) - this despite attempting just seven shots on target during this run. -Brighton boss Chris Hughton oversees his 100th league game in charge of the Seagulls - his record from his first 99 Championship games reads; won 49, drew 31 and lost 19.

    I have dragged myself off my sickbed to post! Actually it's bliss being off work and having time to study the fixtures in more depth! After an early scan & some research, here are my thoughts. FA CUP 5th RND Huddersfield v Citeh This game screams goals to me. I have been very impressed with the home side, especially the way they thumped Brighton, and now are chasing the automatic promotion spots. Wagner has added a raft of German talent recently, and this will only mean more pace & power. I can 't believe that either team will field really weak sides, although City obviously have their CL games coming up. It's Germany V Spain for me, & I fancy BTTS & O2.5 GOALS - 2.1 B365 BORO V OXFORD Here is a potential Champioship fixture for next season? Whilst it's a game Boro won't want to lose, their focus will be on safety this season. Oxford on the other hand are flying both in the league & are one game away from Wembley in the EFL Cup. I can't see Oxford getting thrashed here, so will be backing them on the AH OXFORD +1 AH 2.3 LIONS V FOXES Lord Attenborough once said to me "Look, Tiffy old bean, if you put a fox in a cage against a lion, the lion wins every time"! And of course he is right. Leicester have bigger fish to fry at the moment. They area battling relegation, and have a tough game coming up in the CL next week. Whilst on paper they should win, the game won't be played an paper, it will be played at the Lions Den, one of the most intimidating grounds in the country. Neil Harris will field a strong team, as he doesn't have a big squad, and I am sure that he will have them pumped up, at home, to knock the champions out of the cup. It will be history making for them, and a feather in his cap. Don't forget, Milwall are a pretty decent cup side who have caused a few upsets in the past. The only problem will be, do MILWALL have the quality to break them down? MILWALL AH +0.5 - 1.77 I also like the look of CARDIFF V ROTHERHAM & BTTS @StevieDay1983 BARROW V TORQUAY HALIFAX & BILLERICAY DBL  @addpea Any comments welcome Good luck one & all!

    I've been ill since Friday. Had all my selections done & was going to post on Sat, but my guts emptied faster than my B365 account does on a match day!  I am now just catching up with what's gone on over the weekend! Will be reading, but probably not posting till later in the week,

    What did you say, I wasn't listening!
  6. Midweek > Feb 7th & 8th

    I'd be backing Derby on the DC, but will probably swerve the midweek games and wait for the weekend
  7. Weekend > Feb 3rd - 5th

    I was too busy to post anything this weekend. But I had 9 selections. W - Aldershot, Halifax, Milwall, Carlisle, Athletico to win to nil, Cardiff V Norwich U2.5   L- Derby, Aston Villa, Leicester V Utd U2.5 6/9, made a small profit!

    I listened to it on the radio, and every time you had the ball it sounded like you were going to score. I listened to wagners pre match brief, and he said that he told his players to "ask questions" of Brighton. Well they certainly did that didn't they? The second 3-1 defeat in a row for us, second game with a red card for us. Hope the wheels aren't falling offf now. Dunk also now suspended for 3 games, and a tough away trip on Sunday., Well done to Mr Schweppes on a great performance by your team.
  9. Midweek > Jan 31st - Feb 2nd

    Well we got right totally stuffed last night. shades of last season creeping in, which is a concern for me. They have a chance to pull clear, and bottle it. Exactly like last season. I thought Lewis Dunk had grown up this season, but we are still seeing the silly fouls, needless cards and suspensions from him. Well done To Huddersfield, very impressed with the way Wagner has got them going since he arrived. It sounded like they were going to score from every attack!
  10. Midweek > Jan 31st - Feb 2nd

    Brighton will play better second half. Still fancy them to get something

    HUDDERSFIELD V BRIGHTON very little time to preview this, to be honest, I would take a draw. Brighton have signed a young Arsenal striker on loan, who will be keen to impress & Murray has now been bought permanently, so he will be feeling settled, as he always wanted a return here. i expect another tight game, Huddersfield are no mugs and aren't pushing for 3rd for nothing. Although they were toothless when I saw them earlier this season. Brighton will also be keen to bury last weekends result against Lincoln. What do you think @Kenton Schweppes? BRIGHTON DNB?  
  12. Midweek > Jan 31st - Feb 2nd

    Yes he was! And I think that we have just bought him fro Bournemouth for £3m. Tracking back and defending is part of his game, but we need him to concentrate on banging some more goals in now! probably saving himself for Thursday...............................@Kenton Schweppes
