  1. Chelsea fa cup quarterfinals

    Someone posted that the big teams avoiding each other for the last lot of draws in the last couple of years was a 1.3% chance Swansea have have been drawn away ten times on the trot which is a 0.098% chance, has that been rigged as well? Whilst it's frustrating that they've all avoided each other again we're not talking winning the lottery type chances.
  2. The "do they mean us?" thread

    Small clubs talk about potential, big clubs talk about trophies. Small clubs talk about history, big clubs talk about the present.
  3. Conspiracy Theory

    1.3% chances happen all the time and we're only mentioning it because it's observed. We could use a different metric on all sorts of things and there would be even longer shots happening but we only mention it because it's observed. I was as pissed off as anyone about the big four teams all avoiding each other but the draw was held live and we seen the balls being picked out seemingly random from a transparent box. It's a big leap of faith to think Michael Owen was in on it.
  4. Conspiracy Theory

    It's 22.85% actually. Sorry I've spoiled you Saturday night by making you look a cvnt but tbf it was always going to happen at some point with two hours left of the night.
  5. FA cup quater final draw 7.45pm UK time

    I'd love to see a Leicester, Sheff Wed, Rochdale and Wigan SF draw.
  6. FA cup quater final draw 7.45pm UK time

    It was a 25% chance that the big teams avoided each other so it's not unrealistic.
  7. FA cup quater final draw 7.45pm UK time

    I'm not one to squeal fix because it would mean trusting the ball drawers to never say anything but in last year's FA Cup the big teams avoided each other every round until it was impossible not to.
  8. FA cup quater final draw 7.45pm UK time

    Now we'll probably have to beat three top six sides to win it which is asking a helluva lot. We may be in the QF but our chances of winning the competition are not much better than they were before Fleetwood. I'd have been much happier about this draw if two of the big guns drew each other.

    Ah well the one silver lining is that 7th place should get Europa League football now.
  10. FA cup quater final draw 7.45pm UK time

    It's a poor draw mainly because the other big sides have avoided each other. It looks like we'll have to beat three top six sides if we're going to win the competition. It's one reason I don't get over excited about being in the Q

    And the big four avoid each other AGAIN
  12. If I could show you what's in my top drawer now I bet I have about 50 letters from parking companies chasing me up for their invoice, note I said invoice and not fine as they don't have the authority to issue fines. Private parking companies are basically vermin. They prey on your ignorance and fear and try to dress these charges up as if you are legally obligated to pay them. The first one I ever got was unfair and I appealed and lost but when I looked into it the charge was an invoice and not a fine and the appeal was to the same company and you always lose as they are judge, jury and executioner and their sole focus isn't stopping parking but collecting money. Since then I've never paid one or even responded to them. It's like a sport to me to park in places that will give me a private parking company ticket as I love receiving them. Whilst @NorthfieldsFoxis correct that some people have lost a court case they are few and far between and the other 99%+ are not pursued. The golden rule is if it's from the Council then you have to pay it, if it's a private car parking firm just ignore the letters. You'll normally get two or three that threaten that this will be put in the hand of their solicitors and then you never hear anything again. Never respond to them is the golden rule.
  13. Jack O Connell

    Chilwell is one of the most outstanding young English players in the game. O'Connell is two years older and will never be as good as Chilwell is now. Just like the Mahrez moaners people won't appreciate what we have here until it's gone.
  14. Unbelievable isn't it? Fighting for 7th place and a cup once in a blue moon is our glass ceiling realistically. Even though Puel has guided us to almost the summit of that it's still not enough for some people.
  15. Sheffield United Pre Match

    It would be criminal if he didn't. I can't see any plausible reason why he wouldn't, he doesn't need the rest and both our other goalkeepers are journeymen who don't need game time like a young up and coming keeper. If Schmeichel doesn't play I'd like to hear Puel's explanation why.
