    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.

  4. 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!

  6. Full Time Report

    Saints late substitution won them the game. Charlie Austin coming on as a late sub getting the goal.Both teams played some nice football, but didn’t threaten much in the final third.

    Brightons new signing from Lille, Bassouma, impressed the most. Very lively in midfield with lots of tricks. I’d be surprised if he didn’t start on Saturday against Fulham. Watch out for him, he looks like he will be earning rave reviews shortly.

  7. Live update from the Amex. The Harvey’s best is slipping down nicely, and the guest pie tonight is “Thai Green Curry”

    Anyway, team news, and Brighton name a strong team featuring all their big summer signings, plus a couple of promising youngsters. Bernardo comes in at CH, with Sytner at LB, and u23’s making up the rest of the back 4.

    Button in goal, and a strong midfield with Bassouma, Ali Reza,  Kyal & an U23 making up the midfield.  Gross & Locadia up top to smash the goals in, and the latter with a big point to prove tonight.

    saints go for a strong line up too, so I’d back BTTS YES if I was a gambling man.

    Over now to the Arms Park, to our Welsh correspondent @StevieDay1983 to update us on the pies at Cardiff tonight......,,,,

    Yeah, I'll have a scan through some stats tomorrow. Both teams backed up my feelings that they'll be contenders early on. It will be interesting to see how they continue as injuries and fatigue set in. Leeds are playing at 100mph at the moment. Reminds me of us under Dave Jones. Often started well but it's a long season. Anyway, I'll transfer these thoughts to the other thread tomorrow.

    P.s. you're right. You boys had a hell of a time with the whole Withdean Stadium farce. You've got it pretty sweet now though so pleased for you. Felt like teams like us, you, Reading, Wigan, and Stoke went up the divisions together at roughly the same time so always like to see how things are going behind the scenes at those clubs.

    Thanks Stevie D. I am moving to Devon in September, so 'be able to follow the Albion as closely from now on. Going to start watching Plymouth, Exeter & Torquay!

    Although I will be back up for games, including Palace & West Ham.


  9. Interesting story Stevie D.

    I love going to Loftus Rd, and yes, a pretty decent bunch of fans too.  Just sad to see clubs get ruined though. Always the fans that suffer, god knows you lot have been through it too!

    Looking forward to hearing what you though of last nights game between Swansea & Leeds. Perhaps you can put something in the next weekends thread?

    You're probably right! An interesting night so far. I'm watching the Swansea versus Leeds game. Learning a lot. Helping to give me a better idea about what I'm going to punt for this weekend. QPR look a shambles. Things are looking grim for them with the financial side of things a mess as well. Can see them being a team to bet against on the road.

    Yeah, think they will sink faster than the Titanic. Tonight it was a good test to see how they would respond after Saturdays heavy defeat. They will get what they deserve. Another club with a rich owner over spending to boost his ego.

    cheers tiffy

    i fear we may be relegated before he departs- i hope he has deep pockets as we will lose approx 5000 season ticket holders at the end of this season-fanbase totally pissed off and no info from club, no structure in place and one bizarre decision after another.

    Foreign owners are ruining our clubs. The football league are spineless, as are the FA. The PL are only interested in money. FFP is a complete joke, how can Wolves get away with overspending last season?

    I enjoy reading your thoughts, so keep the posts coming pal, and keep us updated with goings on up there
