We'd be losing another local game, and despite losing 4-0 to them this season they're one of the few teams that we actually have a good record against. So from that point of view I'd rather they stay up.
Yep, that brotherhood thingy they got going down there in the NL forum is the very definition of the word 'tinpot'.
I do acknowledge though that it's all #bantz and not to be taken seriously by anybody. Or I should say, I hope that's all it is cos I'm starting to think that just perhaps the Poolie fans are actually being serious? But nah it surely can't be..... ???
Thanks Soup. That's what happens when one plucks a number out of thin air like I did.
Gone bust and reformed being the key words - they are technically not the same club.
That's technically correct but I believe most fans consider the reformed clubs as a continuation of the old ones. See any club's twitter page or matchday programme every time they come up against a reformed club - why else would they say stuff like ''Halifax/Darlo/etc have not won a game here for 40 years''?
Club badge is clutching at straws a bit, and why even bother looking that up. I didn't even know it was 8 times. Or if it is actually that many.
I don't have a clue is the answer to your question. Could be just the 4 times or as many as 12 times who knows. I certainly don't.
And you're taking this far too seriously brother Soup! And please do come up asap, I'm yet to visit your lovely ground
I'd say it's very unlikely they'll get something as harsh as a points deduction for requesting and then being granted a game postponement, especially if it's only a technicality that one of the players on international duty doesn't meet the criteria to be counted as one of the three.
It's up to the EFL to judge and then grant or refuse the postponement at the time, unless Stevenage have deliberately concealed information they knew would affect their request (not entirely out of character for them), but even then I'm not sure they would go so far as to apply a points deduction.
Well no, seeing as we’ve got through the period of games I felt were the big chance for teams to close the gap. We actually got 2 more points than i expected and the teams below didn’t put a little run together like we did a few weeks ago.
We are not safe. I don’t care what you or anyone says, our current points total does not guarantee safety. But having got through this period with our lead over bottom place intact, we SHOULD stay up.
