This will be my final dodgy numbers post of the season. (If you haven’t seen the previous ones you can follow the link above, and/or those below). There is still a game to go, and two questions remain unanswered, but we can now look at the league table and judge how well our start of […]

Wolves and Cardiff, then Fulham and Villa. Then pick two from three (or four?) (or five?)

Yesterday you might have seen how I – or rather our readers – came to select a number of clubs to follow over the course of the season. They were originally Middlesbrough, Aston Villa, Fulham, Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland; Wolves, Bristol City, Cardiff, Derby and Sheffield United joined them at the end of the January transfer […]

Let’s go back to the start of the season (and don’t we wish we could). I polled our readers as to who would make the top six. These clubs came up favourite ( in the order given) and I began tracking them and reporting on their progress from time to time: Middlesbrough Aston Villa Fulham […]

The Lars Word from Bristol City 3-3 SAFC. From disgust to euphoria

Lars Knutsen - Wearside through and through

Lars Knutsen knows how to choose them. Back from his USA exile (correcting the earlier reference, he still travels there a lot but family needs prompted him to relocate), he made it to the Bristol City game.

Sixer's Soapbox (featured image)

After Bristanbul, where’s Sixer when you need him?

And hopefully a structure that works and which will provide a framework for a climb out of […]
