    Preston's bizarre season continues. They've lost every home game but are unbeaten away (in fact they've only dropped points in a draw at Norwich). Currently they are 2-0 up a table topping Reading.

      At least I don't have to record Quest tonight...

        A late winner at Derby makes it two in a row for the proper hoops since sometime in the dark ages. I'm guessing M. Cocu may be looking for new employment soon.

          Nine points in a day though. Bet the BRC's never manage that.
          So transfixed/nauseous/stressed was I by the US elections yesterday that this news entirely passed me by. I note that since this post we have returned to our more appropriate 24th place, but the gap now seems assailable (not that i believe we are very likely to assail it)

            It's prompted one of the most annoying things you hear on the wireless. Apparently Wednesday are now 'three points from safety'. No they are not. No team in history has ever stayed up with only eight points (someone will prove me wrong here).

              Reading have lost twice in a row since I asked why they were so good. A flattering (two late consolations) 3-2 at Coventry and a 3-0 home humping by Preston.

              Any other teams people want me to big up? Failure guaranteed.

                I’ll have Glasgow Rangers, please

                  Excellent local papering here. Just to be clear, teams who aren't Bournemouth will also be allowed five subs.

                    Rumours circulating (local TV and other unreliable sources) that Barnsley have held talks with the agent for Mario Balotelli. Yes, you read that right - Mario Balotelli! I'm unsure where these talks broke down first (if they happened at all). It could have been wages, when he saw photos of the town centre, discovering we play a high press and his role in it... anything really.

                    Barnsley fans are split down the middle. Half think it won't happen and are grateful because it would cause carnage at the club. The other half think it won't happen, would cause carnage at the club, but wish it would just for the entertainment value.

                    Anyway, just one more time... Mario Balotelli at Barnsley.

                      Footballers go near the town centre?

                        They have to go through it to reach the M1.

                        Since football restarted Nottingham Forest have lost more games at Oakwell than Barnsley.

                          Somewhat odd event at Preston on Saturday when North End defender Darnell Fisher had a couple of attempts to (apparently) grab Callum Paterson's cock. It wasn't exactly Vinnie Jones/Paul Gascoigne, and was , well, a lot more gentle. Anyway the FA are apparently looking into it. (You can find videos of it - there isn't really any doubt about it)

                            Just other teams named after fruit?

                              Like, a couple of attempts, on separate occasions during the game? Or he had two goes more ore less at the same time?

                                One after the other. Looked like it was before a corner

                                Edit, hre you go

                                  That is really strange behaviour. I wonder what prompted that?

                                    Because the rules of the game completely change during a corner?
