Fixture list updated in the OP for the coming weekend - does anyone actually look at those or am I just wasting precious spam-posting time keeping track of the fixtures and results?

You’re doing a great job man. :wub:

(I didn’t know you were doing it but looking at it, it’s great and I’ll check it more going forward)

:roll: Separate the results from the coming fixtures at least, you lazy bugger. No but seriously that's a cracking OP.

Dale you tosser. Such an opportunity today to put great space between us and the drop zone and to keep a good run of results going (Everton aside).

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

In all honesty I never read the opening post apart from the occasional look at who supports who when I’m trying to understand their point of view. That part is useful.

Mate of mine is a united fan and he’s bet on city winning. They’re clear favourites but it’s a bit poor in my opinion looking to gain money to assuage the pain or disappointment of losing. Leave a pretty sour taste in the mouth.
I don’t ever bet against United but in a game like this - it’s unthinkable for me.

Is it just me?

I think it’s pretty shitty.

Ugh. That’s awful. Even for the shite you support.

It’s Leicester isn’t it?

No, Forest?

Both. I alternate wearing a Leicester top/Forest shorts and socks and vice versa each week.

It makes perfect sense to bet against your team. If your team wins then you are happy. If your team loses then you make some cash.

Having said that though, I could never do it.

It makes sense but not to a fan. I know that invites Dat passion comments but it’s pretty unthinkable for me. Against City or Liverpool even more so. Football is more important than money.

I agree, I could never do it, but I can see the logic.

Happy with that half.

Looking solid and playing some decent stuff when we do get the ball.

Been quite a few yellow cards, can see someone getting sent off.

Belter of a volley from Alonso. Embarrassing from Rudiger.
