  1. Some of the clubs are using professional players from their official ‘esports’ teams. Completely ruins it imo.
  2. Finish the one that is nearing completion before worrying about one that doesn't exist. I just think that's the most sensible, yet admittedly imperfect, resolution. If that means resuming this current season next calendar year then so be it. Obviously national well-being is priority and restarting shouldn't be rushed to satisfy the appetite of impatient football supporters.
  3. Imo this season has to be finished before the next one starts. If that means that there can be no 2020/21 season then so be it, but you cannot just null and void a season in which over two thirds of games have been played (even in these exceptional circumstances). Obviously there will be complications with player contracts ending in June and the transfer window opening but I think we can all agree that there is no simple solution which satisfies everyone’s desires. It’s very easy for us as a fanbase to want the most dull season in our entire history wiped off the record, but if we had something still to play for I guarantee responses would be different. Many of us might dislike Leeds and Liverpool but the integrity of our national sport means much more than petty blinkered point scoring against clubs we’d rather not see lift a trophy.
  4. But we won’t be paying match-day staff, certain utilities, policing, VAT, players’ bonuses etc whilst we’re not playing. Do pay on the day and away supporter receipts really exceed the cost of putting a game on by a colossal amount? I find it unlikely, but will happily admit I’m wrong if somebody has evidence to the contrary. I’m not saying there’s no shortfall either by the way, but if we’re seriously relying on big away followings in this league to keep us ticking over then it’s a worrying lack of foresight...
  5. I think the financial impact is being overstated. Do POTD receipts actually exceed the cost of match day expenses by a significant amount for a club like Latics, especially in our current predicament? This stuff should be budgeted for. Relying on Swindon Town to bring a four figure number of fans to keep us ticking over into next season would reek of poor planning.
  6. Unsuccessful today with just the 3 places and 0 wins from 8 bets. Never mind, still had a brilliant week and it’s all in good fun. What an excellent renewal of the Gold Cup that was!

Friday 13:30 Sir Psycho @16/1 e/w (4 places) 14:10 Stolen Silver @12/1 e/w (6 places) 14:50 Thyme Hill @11/2 e/w (4 places) 15:30 (Gold Cup) Clan Des Obeaux @7/1 e/w (5 places) Lostintranslation @9/1 e/w (5 places) 16:10 Minella Rocco @4/1 16:50 Eclair De Beaufeu @7/1 e/w (5 places) 17:30 Ilikedwayurthinkin @6/1 e/w (6 places)
  8. Glad I didn’t put PP back on! Thought Ronald Pump had it in the bag coming up to the last but can’t complain with a free bet 😁 2 wins, 2 places and 2 losers for another profitable day!
  9. Thursday 13:30 Itchy Feet @5/1 e/w (3 places) 14:10 The Storyteller @5/1 e/w (6 places) 14:50 A Plus Tard @9/5 15:30 I did have PP in my ‘banker’ double of the week but BDD downed that in the mares hurdle on the first day. Used the Paddy Power free bet on Ronald Pump @18/1 but other than that no selection. 16:10 Simply The Betts @7/2 16:50 Concertista @5/1 e/w (4 places) 17:30 Deise Aba @8/1 e/w (6 places)
  10. Cheers for the heads up! Gone for Ronald Pump at 18s (I wouldn’t be opposing PP with cash though 😁).
  11. Yeah, definitely going to do it in the next couple of years. Pinnacle of the NH calendar without a doubt. Been told to avoid Gold Cup day as apparently it’s manic and impossible to get served.
  12. Ferny Hollow propels me into another profitable day in the last at 14/1, booooom
  13. I put a couple on for today at the weekend, both looking great picks given the form boost for Envoi Allen yesterday and the non-runners in the champion chase. Wednesday 13:30 Envoi Allen @6/4 14:10 Battleoverdoyen @12/1 e/w (4 places) 14:50 Alfa Mix @14/1 e/w (6 places) 15:30 Defi Du Seuil @2/1 16:00 Tiger Roll @evs 16:50 Tronador @8/1 e/w (6 places) 17:30 Ferny Hollow @14/1 e/w (4 places)
  14. Not bad 😂 I saw the ITV racing feature on your PH syndicate. It looks like an enjoyable thing to be involved with, regardless of result!
  15. *Ok* first day for myself. Ended up with a decentish profit from the 2 winners and Darver Star placing. Fair play to Blackmore and Honeysuckle also, Mullins was fuming!
