    To help you find your new Division here are the lists.  Divisions are decided by your finishing total from last season.  In some of the lower Divisions players had finished with the same total where they needed to split so I've used a random number generator to make the decision (call it a penalty shoot out).

    Still space for a few more to join in Div 7 & 8 :ok










    Found them

    Anyone else interested please put your week 1 selections in Division 8

    Players may get split between 7 and 8 if we get a lot of latecomers but the prize money is the same.

    I will pick them up and sort them out once we have definite numbers.



    Where do I find the new leagues? Can't work out where I am without trawling through each one

  3. Thanks mate, and yeah you are right, we have to judge everything in context. I'm happy with the progress under Potter. If they continue that way then results will pick up. You can't continue to play that way and lose every week. 

    And I do love your posts, always a fair assessment, with a hint of dry humour. 

    I'm just hoping @StevieDay1983 finally gets  a Brighton review right and they can get a win for him!

    Uggghhhh, not looking forward to this one @StevieDay1983

    Palace probably have the strongest squad of players in their entire history this season (2 decent players for every position) but this has led to a ridiculous amount of rotation. The back four in particular has been laughable, would be interested if someone could tell me the last time Palace started the same back four; two league games in a row?!?! This has led to Palace having the 4th worst defence in the Premier League at the time of writing this (42 goals conceded from 24 games). Must Hodgson take some of the blame for said rotation? It's hard to say because you don't know what goes on behind the scenes with fatigue and niggling injuries. I will say that it is very difficult for the team to generate a cohesion and understanding between players when they start one week and are dropped the next. This has now affected confidence in a noticeable way and Palace have played poorly in their last two games.

    What about Brighton? Who knows, even if fans were allowed in the stadium they would probably only defect to Torquay or the Scilly Isles within minutes where the clackers come cheap and the song sheets are free. Don't ask @Tiffy about the game, I've heard he's at Jamaica Inn negotiating a hostile takeover of Rye Rovers with his Peruvian business associates.


    The wheels have fallen right off. I feel for Potter, he can't do anymore than he has. The players are letting him down and the finishing is dreadful. I still Don't know how we haven't got at least a point from the last 2 games. 

    Weather is nice here in Peru though, and I've asked the local Junta to do a job on *Woy the boy* next time they visir relatives In  Cwoydon.

    West Brom vs Brighton

    The relegation battle will be the main focus point in the Premier League at 3pm GMT at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon when West Brom will look to claw faint hopes of survival back against a Brighton side that are hovering dangerously above the drop zone. Will the home side add more stress to the away team's fears of getting sucked into the dogfight at the wrong end of the table.

    West Brom are staring a return back to the Championship right in the face. Sam Allardyce's side are in 19th place and now 11 points adrift of safety. You have to say that with no win in their last 7 league games that anything other than a victory here will be the nail in the coffin. The Baggies possess the second worst home record in the top flight this season earning just 7 points and conceding 23 goals during their 13 league games on home soil. Back-to-back draws against Manchester United at home and Burnley away has given hope that the club could stabilise results but they've gone past the point where draws will keep them up. The brutal reality is that they need wins now. Especially in games like this. Allardyce also has a decent record against Brighton not only remaining unbeaten against them in 9 encounters as a manager but he has notched up wins against them in all four divisions in the English football pyramid.

    Brighton fans will undoubtedly be wondering how on earth their side are in the position they're in. The Seagulls could have their season summed up by the 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace last week with their rivals only having two touches in their penalty area and scoring from both touches. It was a game Graham Potter's side dominated and should really have won. That's been a constant problem this season though. Turning dominance into victories. The club are in 16th place just 4 points above the relegation zone and a loss here could really crank up the pressure if other results go against them. The positive news is that the team have lost just 1 of their last 6 away league games and 4 of their 5 league wins have come on the road this season. One stat that caught my eye is that they have drawn all four of their games against teams that have started the day in the relegation zone.

    I make no secret of the fact I think Brighton and Potter are a decent match. Given time and investment, he could turn them into a solid Premier League team. Unfortunately, it's not quite happening in the final third for them this season. West Brom are showing a sort of resilience recently that might not save them but could cause problems for other sides. This is one of those instances. I feel Brighton really should be looking to win this but I am wary West Brom could suckerpunch them in a classic Allardyce style. I'll still have to back the away victory because of how much better Brighton have been on the road than at home this campaign.

    Brighton to Win @ 1.92 with SBK

    Total Goals Scored Under 2.5 @ 1.78 with SBK

    You're right StevieD in you assessment, but was there value in the Brighton win? At prices like that, I can't be bothered to back them. It's a fast road to the poor house. 

    I agree. Should've, would've, could've, good enough too, but don't. And that's where football fkcs with you.
