  1. Safe Standing Survey Results

    But there is no risk! When you have a solid barrier on every row (that's what safe standing is) it's not physically possible for there to be the kind of crush that occurred at Hillsborough.
  2. The Race for 7th - Stats Galore

    Qualifying for Europe is still more likely to happen via the league than via the FA Cup I would suggest. That said we should be fully committed to both competitions. We've got the strength to cope with them.
  3. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    A small but important correction here: By paying someone more for certain work what you're saying is that their labour is more valuable, not that their life is more valuable.
  4. Morgan or Dragovic?

    I think Morgan is slightly better. My feeling is that he'd be better in the big games too.
  5. FA Cup 2018

    I agree we can assume United will go through. Swansea have a chance though, they're playing okay atm and took their tie against Notts County seriously.
  6. FA Cup 2018

    I think you're right actually. Something like 1 in 10. Gosh.
  7. FA Cup 2018

    What do we think our chances are now? 1 in 20?
  8. Safe Standing Survey Results

    It's an imperfect survey for sure. I wouldn't claim it to be an accurate representation of the fanbase, but what it does suggest is that a not-insignificant number of fans are interested in the issue. What's needed is for the club to conduct their own survey. If they find interest is high enough - which I suspect they will - then they ought to feel obliged to keep the issue on the agenda.
  9. FA cup quater final draw 7.45pm UK time

    You're thinking in the right direction but that's not quite right. For the first tie, the chance of one of the elite playing someone outside the top six is indeed 4/7. But after the first pair of balls have been drawn there are only six teams left, so the chances of one of the elite avoiding the others is 3/5 for the second pair of balls picked out. That leaves two elite teams left out of four. The chances of it happening again on the third pair of balls is 2/3. So the probability of the elite teams all avoiding each other = 4/7 x 3/5 x 2/3 = 0.229 = 22.9%
  10. Chelsea fa cup quarterfinals

    Yes on both counts. You'd want to look at more than one draw to find evidence of bias. The chances of both the League Cup and FA Cup quarter finals favouring the big teams as they did are low, for example. But I'm still not convinced. I'd want to see a statistical test on several years of cup draws before I start condemning the process.
  11. Chelsea fa cup quarterfinals

    For those interested, the chance of the big four avoiding each other in the draw was 23%. Can show you the maths for that if you like.
  12. FA Cup 2018

    I agree it's not clear what our strongest team is. But I think the point being made by other posters is the side suggested by Nannypig certainly isn't our best.
  13. Policing abroad

    Responded. Summary: Policia horrific, other three forces acceptable or good.
  14. The issue is having 8 games in a three week period. The solution to that is to move 2 of them, not 5 or 6.
