    Think at the very least you will lose the win part as Billericay will win the league in my view. He's off to a decent start, but I am still not sure he was the right man for the job as he's never been down this low before. Jury still out for me, but we shall see what happens in the next few weeks.

    Thanks for your thoughts, I thought it was worth a go at that price!

    There's more games to be seen tonight in the Championship. Middlesbrough to win to nil at home to Bolton is an option at 2.15 with BetVictor is probably my pick of the bets tonight. I think backing Nottingham Forest to win as well as backing a draw between QPR and Millwall could be worth following up too.

    Yeah I fancy Boro to bounce back after Saturdays loss to Norwich, & Milwall should get something at QPR too.

    I'm not as anti-Hughes as some folks, although the recruitment in the latter half of his reign at Stoke was poor. Southampton actually play ok under him and have generally good metrics but poor chance conversion - they are like Palace without Zaha and this is not a good situation to be in. I expect they will struggle this season unless they have an incredible January window.

    On a side note, I saw an article the other day where Southgate was saying England are missing a Gascoine-type player. I mean, talk about the biggest oversight of his career - Zaha was that player!!! He would of added another dimension to England's attacking play, especially comming off the bench when opposition teams are tired. I love Southgate, top bloke and doing good work for the national side but letting Zaha play for the Ivory Coast was an error.

    Yep you are right, England haven't had anGazza type player since he gave up. I'm nit sure if Zaha is a similar type of player, he is more wide than central isn't he?

    But agree that he should be playing for England, he is a superb talent.

    Having been involved with youth football, I have the theory that flair is now coached out of players. It's all about control, pass, move into space. Not drop the shoulder and dribble.

    Still the FA know best.

    Southampton vs Brighton

    OK, so this might not technically be a derby game for either of these sides but it's kind of like the subsidiary derby game given they are less than 2 hours apart and the nearest located side to each other after their rivals. So there could be a bit of grit to this game where Southampton welcome South Coast rivals Brighton to St Mary's Stadium for an 8pm kick-off tonight.

    Mark Hughes helped to guide Southampton to safety last season when it looked like they might drop down into the Championship. One draw and two defeats in their opening three games was softened by a 2-0 win away to Crystal Palace in their last league game. However, did that victory paper over the cracks of a side that many are tipping to struggle once again?

    Brighton were also tipped by many to suffer second season syndrome after an encouraging debut in the Premier League last season. Chris Hughton has done a cracking job so far at the helm of the Seagulls. Heavy investment over the summer has increased expectations but the club has only picked up one win and one draw in their opening four league matches. In their defence, one of those wins came against Manchester United and their two defeats have come against high-flying Watford and Liverpool. It's early days yet!

    The head-to-head record over recent years heavily favours the Saints. These two sides have faced each other in all forms of competition in the past 10 years including the Premier League, Championship, League One, and EFL Cup. It's grim reading for Brighton fans who have seen their side win just 2 of the last 16 meetings between the two sides in all competitions. Their last win at St Mary's came back on 15th November, 2009.

    Throw into the mix the fact Brighton haven't won an away league game since November 2017. In fact, Brighton have only taken 11 points from a possible 63 on offer from away matches since their arrival in the Premier League. Southampton also boast a great record against fellow South Coast teams having won the last four of their games against South Coast opposition. It also doesn't bode well that Hughton himself but surely consider Southampton a bogey side having only picked up one win against them in his last 9 meetings.

    Taking into consideration the odds of this match and Brighton's terrible away record I am tempted to back a narrow Southampton win here. I do think it'll be a struggle for the Saints this season but it's obvious that Hughton hasn't solved the away issues that plagued the side last season. The best they might get tonight is a draw.

    What a shocking away record that is!

    Yeah, I do rate Adams as a manager. I was browsing their forum earlier and it seems like the fans are split. They are either dreading the potential horror show this season or just assuming that things will turn around. As I said, it's a dangerous game. I would usually avoid a game like this too but I wanted to take a risk this week.

    Well he  who dares................generally loses!:ok

    SH - Brighton

    Not impressed by southampton at all, feel like Brighton could get something here, If they were at home i'd definitely back them. I'm gonna decide as to what i want to play here, nothing yet.


    All the Brighton fans I have spoke to this week fancy us to get something here. A draw at least. Perhaps an unders game too?

    Brighton DC & U3 goals is 2.5 on B365

    Hearts are now 2.50 which if you held me down and waterboarded me I might admit to being a bit of value. You'll never get me tipping that lot though, so I'd say this, Hearts aren't as good as the table suggests, they'll lose their 100% record sooner or later. If Motherwell play like they did last time out against Rangers then it could be sooner. I am of course completely unbiased.

    Livingston could be a shout, their horrendous artificial pitch gives them an undoubted advantage when they're at home, just like Kilmarnock when they're at home, but I'm not sure 1.91 has any value. Maybe one for an acca.

    I won't be betting on either of these games.

    Haha, thanks for that allyhibs. Just what I expected from you, lots of bitternesss towards your deadly rivals! Nice to get your thoughts though,  I've stuck them both in this week, so let's see how it goes. I am avoiding Prem & Championship games for a while. Think there may be better form in this section.

  8. Let's get this show on the road....

    i find myself with a quieter week at work, so I have time to have a look at the stats above.

    i fancy a BTTS acca this week,

    Burton V Sunderland, Cov V Barnsley, LUTON V Bristol Rovers,, Posh V Pompey, MKD V FGR,Newport V Yeovil, Swindon V Bury

    Looking at the ratings, the teams who seem to have a clear advantage this week are Charlton, Barnsley, Accy Stan, Giils, Donny Rovers,Colchester, Creepy Crawley, Yeovil, Livingston, Hearts and Rangers.

    Gillingham are catching my eye this week away to Rochdale.

    They are currently 4.5 to win, & 2.0 on the DC/X2

    Its a case of 14th V 15th in this mid table League 1 encounter, with Rochdale 1 point above, but with a worse goal difference (4 goals worse)

    Gillingham have a superior ratings over Rochdale, so this suggests they must be putting the performances in, but not getting results. In fact of their last 5 match sequence LLLDL, they have played 3 of the top 4, conceededing 8 in two of those matches (Pompey (A) being a EFL CUP game), so a tough set of fixtures for them so far.

    They are not playing top 4, it's Rochdale, 1 place, 1 point, above them, with a worse goal deficit 

    The other two matches in their last 5 sequence have been a 1-1 draw against Coventry & a 1-0 loss to Wombledon. Both these teams sit 1 point above the Gills, in 12th & 13th place

     (Under 2.5 goals is currently 2.0)

    So taking all of this into account, Gillingham should be in with a decent shout of Winning if they can perform as the ratings suggest.

    By the way, the last time I opposed Rochdale at home, Walsall came up trumps at 4.2!

    @allyhibs sorry for the bad language, but are the Jambos value away at Motherwell (2.3) or Livingston at home (1.9)?

    Crawley  should continue to impress under the new manager too. @1.85

    @Tiffy, how are you feeling after your draw with Fulham today? Missed the penalty but also came back from 2-0 down when it could have all got away from you. Happy, disappointed, or bittersweet? As you said before, Murray bailing you out again and he won't be able to do it every time.

    Apologies for the late reply @StevieDay1983. I have started to reply twice, but had to give up halfway through.

    I moved house last week, and have just been too busy to do anything on here.

    Anyway, onto the game which I had to miss due to being too busy at work. I felt Fulham would score, and we wouldn't lose. So it ended up pretty much as expected. The difference was that although Brighton played some great attacking football, it was Fulham who took their chances. Brighton did enough to win, as usual, but I am happy enough with a draw. We showed good character to come back from 2-0 down

    Yes we are still relying on the old warhorse, Glenn Murray. The good news is that Andone should be fit and ready soon, so hopefully he can prove to be half as good.

    I now live in Devon, and was due to want the Exeter V Notts Co game, but had to work due to being short staffed! Missed a cracker there didn't I!
