Manager Nathan Jones admits Jordan Clark is pushing for a place in the XI. The summer signing from Accrington Stanley has scored in consecutive games against Reading and Derby after coming off the bench.
“I'm thinking Clarky might have to start,” said Jones. “He’s been unfortunate to be sub, with his performances throughout pre-season, but at the minute, both sides are winning games, so it’s keeping that continuity, keeping that winning feeling. But I won’t make the error to keep something that's not vital to me away from the grass.”
Former Red Ryan Tunnicliffe was not involved against the Rams at the weekend, with Andrew Shinnie taking his place.

2020.09.11 17:12 dsut22 A background to KuKu/Black Prince

Processing img n5wzd0stpxk51...

A background into KuKu/Black Prince, formerly known as Kennington Black Mobb and Bang Your Mash, Kennington, South London.

Processing img 1cy7dx7frxk51...

Some drill fans may have heard of the KuKu/Black Prince gang in London as it's very active in the road scene, the fact that South London is definitely one of the hottest places for gang rivalry, and its intense rivalry with certain other South London areas like Upper Tulse Hill, Peckham and Angell Town, I've seen some other pages with talk about KuKu/BP like the worked they've mashed on roads and more so about who they beef and the points scored between rival gangs, but for people new to UK Drill (or who do not know some of the history of the KuKu/BP gang) I trust you will find the background to KuKu/BP, and its actual precursors intriguing. It took me a while to gather information on a group widely known as other neighbouring London groups. I may do more of these, I could do Moscow17 based in Walworth and maybe Manor Park based in the Manor Park and Cage area.


KuKu/Black Prince, are a Kennington-based street gang who are located on estates around Black Prince Road in Kennington, more approximately on Ethelred and Vauxhall Garden estates within the SE11 postcode. They are a very active gang and have been around for over 15 years dating back to the mid-2000s where drug dealers from Kennington roamed around and offered people drugs to make money, they are very close allies with fellow South London areas Oval and Stockwell, they are also one of North London’s most well known and active gangs, stemming even well before the days of the Dem Africans and Shankstarz. KuKu also go by #BP , #SE11 , #BYM , #Black Prince and K-Town. Kennington is known as Harlem by many gang members and by some locals on the estates.

Processing img 9yesj0pivxk51...

The Black Prince Road/ Kennington area borders Brixton (SW2), Vauxhall (SW8), Newington (SE1) and Elephant & Castle (SE11). Many of their rivals and allies are based in and around these areas, in particular Brixton and Vauxhall.
Created from the past collective of the elder Kennington gang called Kennington Black Mobb or more commonly known as Bang Your Mash, Kennington then saw rap groups form more commonly though in the late-2000s/early 2010s under the BYM/K-Town label and it quickly became a well known stomping ground for many of present day Kennington based gang members most well know and rising road rap talents, most notably Hackz (who was one of the originals of KuKu) and Y.Milage. Working under the Bang Your Mash and K-Town banner through the early 2010s, the gang quickly found a creative style of music on tunes like "Gwop stackerz" and ''Too on to be off'' gradually making their presence known into London's road rap scene. As the sounds of London's road rap shifted, so did KuKu's: their 2010s song, Rollin Round, saw the group delve into U.K.-style road rap/trap, while in the latter 2010's songs like ''27th Street, helped to establish the Black Prince's presence on the burgeoning drill scene. It was in the 2010's decade that gangs truly made their mark: working with producers from MKThePlug to M1OnTheBeat, KuKu and Kennington as a whole gradually built a following with their disses to rivals and creative synergy. Marking their songs with the tag #KuKu and #KuKuO, the gang founded their drill collective just as KuKu, and and gave homage to the ''Harlem'' and ''Black Prince'' area, where gang members will have grown up and represent.
A number of past and current generations of gangs have existed in Lambeth and other London boroughs that associate with the colour red and blue, some of which in the past had also self-identified themselves as Bloods and Crips. One of the first of these was the short lived Cripset from Dorset Road which claimed affiliation to the Rollin 80's Crips in Los Angeles. The gang was most active throughout the mid 2000's and were rivals to 031 Bloods, now know simply as 031 (O-Tray One) based in the Patmore and Hartington estates. This is seen as a massive influence on London from the famous American rival gangs Bloods and Crips.
KuKu/BP themselves have never claimed Crips or Bloods like their rivals have and they have always affiliated with the colour black.
There are a number of other gangs in London which have been linked with the colour red. The 031 Bloods from Stockwell have always used the colour red, whilst the former gang Corleone Family Riders (now an extinct set) in the borough of Lambeth in which they are located had a subset nicknamed 'Certified Riders' and in the 2000's seen using red bandanas, this is due to the ongoing American influence. However there was a Kennington Crips set but this is not affiliated with the Kennington Black Mobb who are KuKu/BP's predecessor.
Some of KuKu/BP's rivalries have identified with colours themselves such as 410 who used to be known as just Organised Crime/One Chance, identify with the colour green and also Zone 2 who used to be a part of the Peckham Boy's gang collective, identify with the colour black just like KuKu .

Current beef and alliances
Kennington Black Mobb/Bang Your Mash and the current KuKu/Black Prince gang have had some of the same rivalries between gangs but some of the rivalries were rid of and have now become extinct during the current generation of the KuKu/BP gang. The current generation of the mass rivalry in Lambeth has overtaken the old school rivalry that was between Peckham and Angell Town and Myatts Fields.
KuKu/BP allies: Harlem Spartans (SE11), Moscow17 (SE17), Browning17 (SE17), Aylesbury17 (SE17), 417 (SW18) and Roupell Park (SW2), 67 (SW2), 55 (SW16), Mitcham (CR4), All Bout Money/TeamRaw (SW8, SW9 and SW4) and 727 (to an extent due to links to Harlem Spartans) (SW9).
KuKu/BP rivalries: ClapTown (SW4), 410 (SW9), 031 (SW8), UpTop (SW2), SNR (SE15), Zone 2/Hitsquad/Original Peckham Boys/Young Peckham Boys (SE15), 37/OJB (SW11), 17/TOG/Wano Rd (SW4), 150/AD (SW9), 28s/8 Boyz (CR postcode) and Loughborough Junction/CMG/Cassava (SW9).

Mid to late 2000's

Kennington Black Mobb had become one of the most earliest manifestation of gangs in the Black Prince Road area of Kennington. Previous gangs of the area were known under different names in the 1990s. From around 2005/06 the BYM acronym, which was to be interpreted as the name Bang Your Mash, has been around although in more recent times relates more so to the music side of things in the latter 2000s. Other follow up gangs include Kennington Posse, whilst more maintaining the generic name Black Prince Road and Bang Your Mash. The gang has always been close with the Oval area of Kennington and Black Prince Road and Oval/Vauxhall sets are closely linked.
Kennington and the sets that were based there were originally a very miniscule factor in the warring rivalry of Peckham vs Brixton, then when Brixton and Peckham had settled its beef, the two areas then formed an alliance and Kennington found itself against the majority portion of Brixton, it's only allies being based in Brixton Hill.
Then later, when Kenny started fully beefing Peckham, Peckham was allied with brixton. Essentially the two major areas in south were now beefing a smaller one.
The OC/410 gang never got on with the other dominant Brixton gang from their early days, Peel Dem Crew, and were once more aligned with Stockwell. However, as with many gangs relationships, rivalries and alliances can be subject to change throughout the different generations. On some levels there are loose alliances between members of the All Bout Money (ABM) and OC gangs, although this has altered somewhat with the younger generations. For example, current generations of ABM are allies of a gang which killed an OC member. Both gangs also had affiliations with parts of the Peckham Boys gang, however, this too has changed. ABM maintain links with Peckham whilst the younger generations of OC have been in conflict with Peckham Young Gunners in the late 2000’s.
The OC gang gained widespread media attention in 2006 when Tiny OC member Alex Mulumba Kamodo was stabbed to death during a fight with rivals from the Kennington ‘Black Mobb’. Black Mobb was an early gang name used by young people from the estates surrounding Black Prince Road. Kamodo, 15, known as ‘Tiny Alien’, was a younger member of the Organised Crime gang, although he resided in Kennington Park. He was a year 11 pupil at the Kingsdale School in Dulwich. On the 8th June 2006 members of the OC gang arrived in Kennington looking for revenge after younger gang members had brawled earlier that day. K-Town’s Adu Sarpong, known as Fame, challenged the gang asking ‘What you doing in our area?’ Alex replied ‘You don’t own these estates’.
''Abu Sarpong, 18, from Kennington, south London, had denied murdering Alex Kamondo in June 2006. Alex, who had finished his GCSE exams just hours before the stabbing, was with two friends when he was attacked by youths armed with weapons.'' - BBC News (2007)
Judge Gerald Gordon said at the Old Bailey: "As in cases of this sort, which are all too frequent in these courts these days, there are no winners."
''Alex's father, Kamodo Mulumba, wrote to the judge saying he did not understand why his son was stabbed through the heart.
He said: "Why my son? All my dreams for him were cut short.
"Why was my son murdered with so much venom and cold bloodedness?
"I hope justice will be served for a child killed in cold blood."
The court was told Alex and Sarpong belonged to rival gangs and had been involved in a minor row earlier in the day.
They returned to the area in the evening and were lured into the Ethelred Estate, Kennington, where Sarpong's gang was waiting. BBC News (2007)
In a pitched battle in Black Prince Road up to thirty youths fought with knives, hammers, metal bars, bottles and a samurai sword. During the fight Sarpong knifed Alex in the chest with so much force that the blade snapped in two. Sarpong fled as his young victim lay dying in the street. Sarpong was a popular church-going teenager from a well-known close-knit family on the estate but he had become fully immersed in gang culture.
Following the murder images emerged in national newspapers showing the victim posing with shotguns on the gangs website. The death was a landmark in the development of, and increased interest in, London youth gang culture. It was the first in a long line of teen deaths that became synonymous with ‘a burgeoning gang culture’ in London, with teen murders running at a rate of more than one per fortnight for the next couple of years and leaving very few areas of London untouched. Sarpong was later found guilty of murder.
The Kennington younger generations have since become more embroiled in rivalry with Brixton’s 150/GAS Gang (once a combination of Angell Town and OC gang members) and also the later 28's generation and their younger, now based in Croydon. Kennington also has an alliance with gang members from Lower Tulse Hill and ABM in Stockwell – where a murder victim named Abukar Mohammed resided. The two gangs share a rivalry with 150/GAS Gang and ABM were also allies with Kennington’s old set BYM (Bang Your Mash) gang from the Black Prince Road area and Crips previously resident around Dorset Road. The relationship with Peckham on the youngest generational level has become more complicated following internal rivalries within the Peckham Boys.


During the mid-2010s when drill music really started to take a grip on the UK music scene, a drill collective and gang called Harlem Spartans started to making music in 2014, using a local youth centre as a music studio. Harlem Spartans are considered as youngers to the KuKu/BP gang and some of their drill artists like MizOrMac have been scene making music with members of KuKu. Most artists within Harlem Spartans originate from the Kennington vicinity just as Black Prince are, with many of them going to Tenison’s School in Oval, some members of rival gang 410 based in Brixton also went to Tenisons and some 410 members were friends with current members of Harlem Spartans. Musically, like much of UK drill genre, both KuKu's and Harlem Spartans' music contains references to their locality, violence committed to rival gangs, references to link ups with other groups, and is often filled with heavy sums of gang related wordplay.
The two groups are known for its beef with Brixton-based group 410 and also an increasingly hot beef with 150, sparked even more when SA who tried to ride out on 150 was killed by 150 member Jbandz/Bando after SA's gun jammed when trying to kill Jbandz/Bando in 2018.
Oboy a member of KuKu is a drug dealer, was jailed after a queue outside a property alerted police.
Oboy/Omarie Crosdale, of Long Lane, Croydon, was found with 375 bags of heroin at a house in Luton Road, Chatham, on Tuesday, June 5.
The property was known to have been used as a drug base previously and when officers spotted people in the queue who were known drug users, they knocked on the front door.
After they were let inside they headed upstairs where they found Crosdale with the Class A drugs.
Oboy was sentenced to two years and eight months at Maidstone Crown Court on Monday for possessing heroin and cocaine with intent to supply.
Also in 2018, Imran Ibrahim, better known as G'Smarko, aged 21, from Austral Street in SE11 was sentenced to five years for firearm possession with intent to endanger life, three years for a deferred sentence relating to a violent disorder incident in 2016, and one month for possession of herbal cannabis.
All will be served concurrently. Upon release he will spend five years on licence.
G'smarko was found guilty following an Old Bailey trial in June 2019 but the News was unable to publish details of the case while a re-trial of two other defendants took place. Both were found not guilty.
Tariq Crookes, 21, from Anerley Park Road in SE20 was sentenced to four years for assisting an offender at Peterborough Crown Court on August 9, and disqualified from driving for seven years.
The court heard that on October 31, 2018, Crookes drove Ibrahim and others to a takeaway on Loughborough Road in Brixton where Ibrahim got out the vehicle and approached a 24-year-old man who was leaving the shop.
Today they are more known for doing collaborations with Harlem Spartans and have been on the drill music scene but haven't been too consistent with dropping music. Some of their drill musicians include: G'Smarko, Oboy, Capa and Shorta. Their music includes:

What are the best teams?

The best academy is SL Benfica's, with a near-perfect score of 79 out of 80. Portuguese teams make up two out of the top three sides in this list. The Netherlands and Belgium dominate the top spots, with 7 of the top 13 sides coming from these nations.
There are some semi-professional and amateur teams that do impressively well, too. Melbourne City (NPL) are the best semi-pro team with a score of 66/80, while AKA St. Pölten have the best amateur academy, with a score of 65/80.


This list was made using FM Genie Scout 20, and the columns Training facilities, Youth facilities, Junior coaching, and Youth Rating are all taken directly from the app. The Training description and Youth description columns reflect what is shown in the game. I have totalled the Genie Scout columns and sorted the sheet by that total.
I've included teams with a Youth decription of "Great" or higher (Youth facilities rating of 14 or higher). I've also excluded any teams from the top five divisions in Europe in an effort to keep costs down - the emphasis is on cheap, after all. Obviously "cheap" varies depending on the team you're managing, but there should be something here for everyone.
Training facilities have been included so that if you arrive a little late to the party, there is a greater chance of the newgens developing a little at the club. If you get them on day one, you can ignore this column.
Note that this list is not exhaustive. I've stuck to Genie Scout's ratings, but I know there are some teams that have "Great" or better youth facilities that I have not included. Often these are B teams, which seem to inherit their descriptions from their parent clubs. But some are like Solihull Moors, which have a Youth description of "Great" but Youth facilities value of 3, which should result in "Basic" or "Poor". Here, I've stuck to Genie Scout's values.
I am also indebted to u/Joltie for their list of youth intake dates in Football Manager 2020. These dates are listed in the right-most column. Some nations do not have an intake date, and you may not see them every produce newgens, but I've included them anyway just in case. These are marked with a dash in the intake date column.
Finally, be aware that a nation's youth rating is very important. While Pyunik sits pretty high on the list, Armenia's low youth rating means the club may never produce a quality newgen. That said, they are worth checking thanks to their top-notch facilities and very cheap asking prices.

2020.08.11 20:24 historiavitae Reguli din roman de Kafka, aplicate de personaje din roman de Camus

O serie de mici exemple și situații care sunt revelatoare despre modul în care se ”gestionează” pandemia…
Mult stil, amenințări, citate din legea X paragraf Y cu urmări Z, mișună uniforme cu body language de rigoare, dar cretinismul și haosul saturat cu autocontradicții sunt strigătoare la cer, cu violări de logică de bază care sunt, în cel mai bun caz tragicomice, în cel mai rău caz complet primejdioase.
Marea Britanie a fost scoasă de mult de pe lista de multe ori actualizată a țărilor din care, la sosirea în România, nu trebuie să intrăm în carantină. Totuși, pe pagina aeroportului din orașul X se afișează atenționarea, repetată și pe site-ul oficial cu formularul de carantină, potrivită căreia indiferent de unde sosim, trebuie să completăm formularul.
Dar... varianta tipărită și cea online specifică concret că ne ”deplasăm” la o adresă declarată de noi pentru izolare / carantină… și amenință cu măsuri drastice dacă nu completăm datele cerute. Nu există opțiune de semnalare a cazului în care sosim din țară de pe lista verde și numai dăm informații...
Sunând la două aeroporturi, toți cei contactați încep să emane înțelepciune:
La aeroportul Luton, se împart formularele în varianta engleză, conținut și formatare complet diferită de ceea postată pe pagina DSP și cea online… e normal, totuși, nu?
Nici acest formular nu dă posibilitatea declarării cazului în care nu intrăm în carantină, explicit am semna declarația absurdă că ne punem la adresa specificată în autoizolare și că vom fi contactabili timp de 14 zile. Dacă nu, iar vin amenințările de rigoare, ca na, e ordine de numa’.
Implicațiile de gen Kafka ar fi că baza de date este dată unui tăntălău care va amenda pentru că nu suntem acolo, după care am încerca absurdul, adică să explicăm unui birocrat sau alt cretin că de fapt formularul oligofrenic nu trebuia completat pentru cei sosiți din acea țară X care nu este pe lista galbenă, dar niște oligofreni ne-au spus că trebuie completat indiferent de lista actualizată DSP.
La aterizare, toți suntem trimiși într-un cort de carantină, complet gol, după câteva minute suntem trimiși de acolo în clădirea aeroportului, unde sunt cei de la DSP cu măsurare de temperatură și controlul normal de pașapoarte. Nu măsurau în cort, înainte sa intrăm în clădire... ar fi fost prea logic.
Cortul, deci, avea zero rost - și nimeni nu a cerut formularul, care de la bun început trebuia să fie scenariul evident de aplicat pe baza listei DSP cu țările.
La plecarea din România:
Cei de la DSP măsoară temperatura după ce am petrecut mai mult de o oră așteptând în interiorul clădirii, intrând în contact cu Nșpe persoane, de la informații până la minibar, de la alți pasageri până la personalul prezent.
Numai la deschiderea check-inului se încep măsurătorile, toți suntem invitați să trecem în fața camerei de infraroșu.
Toate monitoarele arată reguli din primăvară, neactualizate de luni de zile, spunând că trebuie să purtăm mască numai dacă avem simptome sau suspectăm cealaltă persoană este bolnavă.
Culmea absurdului este că pe pagina aeroportului se spune deja purtarea obligatorie a măștilor și în zone exterioare, avem semne de distanțare lipite pe podea peste tot, mișună uniformele de diferit gen, dar… monitoarele tot arată reguli din vremea lui Noe.

2020.08.01 12:10 jagsfanski Offseason Review Series: Jacksonville Jaguars

Before anything, I just want to preface by saying that I am filling in some huge shoes by following the legendary u/JaguarGator9. I am NOT a typical writer nor do I have any experience in analysis, I just wanted to take a stab at analyzing and writing about my favorite team that has been terrorizing my happiness for 15+ years. So, apologies in advance if there are some incorrect points made.
Also gotta give a shoutout to u/PlatypusOfDeath for continuing to run this series and for the formatting help! Also a thanks to u/flounder19 for directing me towards the thread where half of the info comes from and my bro u/MikeFanto4 for giving me the positive reinforcement through the writing of this. With that being said, hope y'all enjoy!

Jacksonville Jaguars


2019 Record: 6-10 (4th in Division)

Coaching Changes


Tom Coughlin – VP of Football Operations/Dictator: This will be discussed in the news section. Please hold.
Jon DeFilippo – Offensive Coordinator: It never really occurred to me until recently (give me a break Jags fans), that the firing of Flip was most likely directly related to Foles (even more so once he got hired by Chicago as QB coach). Once Foles was gone, Flip wanted out and they ultimately “mutually agreed to part ways”. While according to fans it would’ve been nice to see the other coordinator go, it shows that the front office “admitted” their mistake and decided to move on from the experiment.
Scott Milanovich – QB Coach: Milanovich took a job as the HC of the Edmonton Eskimos in the CFL. Before his 3-year stint in Jacksonville, he was the HC of the Toronto Argonauts in the CFL where he won the Grey Cup in 2012 and was also named Coach of the Year.


Jay Gruden – Offensive Coordinator – The once HC of the Washington Football Team, Gruden comes into the organization bringing experience in molding younger quarterbacks. A big help is the fact that GM Dave Caldwell brought in a few players familiar with his scheme to assist in adjusting the other players to the playbook. Of all the OC candidates, Gruden is best fit for Minshew’s playstyle due to his West Coast Offense.
Ben McAdoo – Quarterbacks Coach: Brought in to replace Milanovich, McAdoo also brings HC experience to the team. Even though his time in the Giants organization is best left to be forgotten, his experience as an OC and QB coach makes him a prime candidate. He spent two seasons in Green Bay working with Aaron Rodgers and also helped the Giants to the 6th best scoring offense in the NFL in 2015.
Denard Robinson – Offensive Quality Control Coach: Not really a huge hire, but a nice reunion. Former QB turned RB, Denard “Shoelace” Robinson, continues his time in Duval as an assistant. He was drafted in the 5th round of the 2013 draft as an “Offensive Weapon” but played primarily at RB during his time as a player.

Free Agency/Trades

Players Lost/Traded

Player Position New Team Compensation
Nick Foles QB Bears Compensatory 4th round draft pick
Calais Campbell DE Ravens 5th round pick
A.J. Bouye CB Broncos 4th round pick
Marcell Dareus DT Free Agent
Marqise Lee WR Patriots 1 yr / $1,047,500
Jake Ryan ILB Free Agent
Cedric Ogbuehi RT Seahawks 1 yr / $2,300,000

Key Losses:

Nick Foles: After signing him to a MASSIVE 4-year contract worth $88 million, with $51 million guaranteed, the Jaguars thought they had their man in Super Bowl MVP Big Dick Nick. However, that did not live long since Foles broke his left clavicle during a 35-yard touchdown pass to DJ Chark. Once he was replaced by Bomb-Chuckin’ and Mom-Fuckin’ Gardner Minshew II, he was basically left as an afterthought in the Jaguars fanbase…..until the bye week. He was named the starter for the rest of the season and was severely disappointing in his limited time as it, thus resulting in him being benched after 3 games. In his time as a starter, he completed 77 passes for a completion percentage of 65.8%, 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions, with a passer rating of 84.6. He was largely disappointing in his time here but left the door open for Minshew Mania. Foles was traded to the Bears for a 2020 Compensatory 4th round pick AND took parts of his massive contract and helped us start the return from cap hell. D+ for his play, B for the trade return.
Calais Campbell: I’m like, really upset about this one. I remember exactly where I was when I found out that this glorious human was traded to the Baltimore Ravens for a 5th round pick. Chump change for the 2019 Walter Payton Man of the Year award recipient. After being signed to a 4-year deal worth $60 million with $30 million guaranteed in 2017, the man proceeded to become the Mayor of the Defensive Line Formerly Known as Sacksonville. Amassing 31.5 sacks, 77 QB hits and 44 TFL in his 3 years on the team; not only was he a force on the field, he was very much involved in the Phoenix and Jacksonville communities. In 2019, Campbell won the Walter Payton Man of the Year award – given to the NFL player that best demonstrates outstanding community service and excellence on the field. His charity, CRC Foundation, has been helping young people with critical life skills since 2009. Adding to that, he has also hosted many holiday shopping sprees, the JaxPAL Youth Football and STEM Camp and has spent countless hours speaking encouragement to children in area schools. The fact that the Jaguars let him go for a 2020 5th round pick says a lot about what the teams feels about their cap situation. A for play, D- for trade return.
A.J. Bouye: Bouye was signed in 2017 as a free agent from Houston. His final season on the Texans is what attracted the Jaguars the most, landing him a 5-year contract worth $67.5 million with $26 million guaranteed. In his time with the team, he accrued 8 interceptions, 34 passes defended, and allowed just a 64.4 completion percentage when thrown to since 2018. 2017 was by far his best season opposite Jalen Ramsey in which they formed one of the most feared duos that year. He saw significant drop off in the 2 years to follow, leading to the team wanting to move in a different direction. He was traded to the Denver Broncos for a 2020 4th round pick and saving over $11 million from his remaining contract. B for play, C+ for trade return.
Marcell Dareus: Dareus was traded from the Bills to the Jaguars mid-season 2017 for a 2018 6th round pick to help solidify the lone run-defense weakness in what was a near impeccable defense. Although his stats don’t show it, (2.5 sacks, 45 combined tackles, 4 TFL and 5 QB hits) when healthy, he was a stud in the run game. The Jaguars ultimately decided not to pick up his 2020-year option and he remains a free agent. A team struggling in the run game could pick him up for cheap and I’m not 100% sure why he hasn’t been signed by a team yet. Dave Caldwell has said he is open to bringing him back on a separate deal, but hasn't acted on it yet. C

Players Signed

Player Position Old Team Length Salary
Tyler Eifert TE Bengals 2 years $9,500,000
Joe Schobert ILB Browns 5 years $53,750,000
Chris Thompson RB The Washington Football Team 1 year $1,400,000
Al Woods DT Seahawks 1 year $2,500,000
Rashaan Melvin CB Lions 1 year $1,750,000
Mike Glennon QB Raiders 1 year $1,187,500
Rodney Gunter DE Cardinals 3 years $18,000,000
Aaron Lynch OLB Bears 1 year $1,100,000
Cassius Marsh DE Cardinals 1 year $1,047,500
Lerentee McCray OLB Jaguars 1 year $1,047,500
Tyler Shatley C Jaguars 1 year $1,512,500
Keelan Cole WR Jaguars 1 year $3,259,000
Brian Price DT Jaguars 2 year $1,815,000
Yannick Ngakoue DE Jaguars 1 year TAG $17,788,000
Tyler Eifert: Going into the offseason, the biggest hole in an already lackluster offense was the Tight End position. The Jaguars drafted Josh Oliver in the 3rd round of the 2019 draft to help with that, but he went down with a hamstring injury in the preseason and a back injury during the regular season which limited him to 3 games. James O’Shaughnessy was one of Minshew’s favorite targets but went down with an ACL injury early on as well. Tyler Eifert comes in already familiar with Jay Gruden’s offense. The Jaguars are taking a risk in signing Eifert if they expect him to play even close to his 2015 production (52 catches for 615 yards and 13 touchdowns). However, if he stays healthy and can play even half as good, that’s a massive upgrade over what our Tight End group has produced over the past 5+ years. A 2-year contract worth $9.5 million filled with incentives should give Eifert the motivation to stay healthy and contribute immediately. But if he doesn’t produce as expected, the team should be able to release him with little cap hit. C+
Joe Schobert: Schobert from the Cleveland Browns could be considered the teams’ “marquee” free agent, signing a 5-year, $53.75 million contract with $21.5 million guaranteed. He comes into a linebacker corps that hasn’t had a true MLB since Posluszny retired. This addition allows Myles Jack to move to weak side and gives the opportunity for competition at strong side. Schobert gives the Jaguars a leadership type figure in an already incredibly young defense. Since Telvin Smith retired and decided to be stupid (more on that later on) and Poz choosing to hang up the cleats as well, there hasn’t been someone that could command the defense; Jack tried previously but had probably his worst year to date. Schobert solidifying the middle also gives Jack the opportunity to use his athleticism on the outside. Schobert is top 10 in pass coverage, but still needs to improve in the run game (which is something the team has struggled in for years). I feel like this is a boom-or-bust signing, but am cautiously optimistic. B+
Chris Thompson: Leonard Fournette is still this team’s workhorse back. Rumors started spreading that he would be traded prior to the draft, which ultimately fell flat. Just because the Jags are going to rely on Fournette even more, doesn’t mean that Minshew doesn’t need as many weapons as possible. This is another signing that works well with Gruden’s offense since he had played for him in Washington. This also gives Minshew another weapon out of the backfield. On the other hand, this is another signing that is based solely on whether he can stay healthy or not. A one year, prove-it deal worth $1.4 million is smart on the teams end because when healthy, Thompson can still have the capability to make plays. B
Rodney Gunter: A Calais Campbell clone? Probably not, but a man can dream right? The DE from Arizona signed a 3-year deal worth $18 million to pretty much help rotate through his old position, though. He hasn’t really shown much as a pass rusher (11 sacks in 5 years) but will probably be a rotational piece mostly used in run downs. C
Rashaan Melvin: With the departure of Bouye, the team looked thin at the position prior to the draft. The Jags also hit a homerun with their previous CB signing from Detroit, DJ Hayden. Melvin comes in on another one-year deal to compete with last years UDFA surprise, Tre Herndon for the CB2 spot opposite CJ Henderson. In his 4 years with Detroit, Oakland and Indianapolis, he posted 4 INT and 41 Passes Defended and 2 FF. This puts some competition in camp (if there is one) with experience vs. potential. B-
Al Woods: Caldwell goes in again on defense and signs the large run-stuffer from Seattle on a 1-year, $2.5 million deal. The loss of Marcel Dareus put a large hole in the already weak run defense and Woods helps plug it back in with a decent resume stuffing the middle. This gives the Jags a nice rotation between him, Abry Jones and Davon Hamilton. B EDIT: As of posting this, Al Woods has opted out of the 2020 season.


After trading away Jalen Ramsey, Calais Campbell, AJ Bouye and Nick Foles, the Jaguars ended up with a total of 12 draft picks (most in franchise history).
Round Number Player Position School
1 9 (9) CJ Henderson CB Florida
1 20 (20) from Rams K’Lavon Chaisson DE/LB LSU
2 10 (42) Laviska Shenault Jr. WR Colorado
3 9 (73) DaVon Hamilton DT Ohio State
4 10 (116) Ben Bartch OL St. Johns (Minn.)
4 31 (137) from Broncos Josiah Scott CB Michigan State
4 34 (140) from Bears Shaquille Quarterman LB Miami
5 12 (157) from Ravens Daniel Thomas S Auburn
5 20 (165) from Rams (Fowler trade) Collin Johnson WR Texas
6 10 (189) Jake Luton QB Oregon State
6 27 (206) Tyler Davis TE Georgia Tech
7 9 (223) Chris Claybrooks CB/Return Specialist Memphis


C.J. Henderson: There was a lot of speculation as to who Caldwell was going to draft with the first of 2 first round picks. Was it going to be an OL? WR? QB?(for some reason). Dave ultimately went with the heir to the Ramsey throne. Gone are the days of back injuries and in are the days of another Florida school product. This man is 6-foot 204lb and is extremely good in coverage, which is something that the team needs in replacement of Ramsey. One glaring weakness in his game is his tackling, which seems like there is some hesitation and looks to often miss open field tackles. He immediately fills the CB1 role that was previously held by surprise UDFA Tre Herndon. B
K’Lavon Chaisson: Alright, I’ll address the elephant on the team now. Yannick Ngakoue is not playing another down for the Jacksonville Jaguars. I was a believer that they could strike a long-term deal and keep the talented pass rusher but NOOOOO, he just had to beef with the owner’s son and ruin any chance, but I digress. The first of the Rams 1st round picks from the Jalen Ramsey trade yields the replacement for the other man who really wants out. The LSU product brings an incredible motor and raw talent. He has all the physical tools you could need in a DE/LB at 6’3” and 254lbs but has a high ceiling if he works on his technique. A line edged by Josh Allen and K’Lavon Chaisson sounds relentless to me. A-
Laviska Shenault Jr.: There was plenty of WR talent deep in this draft class and I feel like the Jags found a secret weapon in the Colorado prospect. Despite dealing with numerous injuries and not the best quarterback play, he was still able to produce over 2000 scrimmage yards through his SO and JR seasons. If he can stay healthy, he’ll be able to line up all over the field. Gruden will be able to set him up at WR, RB and even Wildcat QB if he’s feeling frisky. At 6-2 220LB, Minshew has versatile target that has the chance to produce really well if he can stay healthy. B+
DaVon Hamilton: The 6-4, 320lb DT was a wall in the center of the Buckeye line. He amassed 6 sacks, 28 tackles (9.5 for a loss) with 1 forced fumble in his redshirt senior season. Hamilton was drafted to help shore up the middle once held up by Dareus, but also now partially manned by Al Woods. His specialty is in the run game, which is something the Jags desperately need. B
Ben Bartch: The Smoothie King comes to Duval. Everyone knows the story of Bartch’s insane smoothie recipe that helped him gain 86lbs. Coming out of DIII St. John’s in Minnesota, he dominated competition enough to earn him a spot at the Senior Bowl. Even though he doesn’t have much experience against NFL caliber competition, Bartch has the tools necessary to grow in the league and become a serviceable backup or eventually challenge current starting RG, AJ Cann. B-
Josiah Scott: On the smaller end of the spectrum (5’9”, 185lbs), Scott has had to overcome his size with speed and knowledge. He’s too small to be anything more than a slot corner; but he can be great depth behind DJ Hayden and helpful in the run game. The Jags lost a lot in the CB department, so I understand the depth pick. C+
Shaquille Quarterman: Quarterman was a 4-year starter and a captain while at Miami. Caldwell really wanted to shore up the run defense this offense and this pick doesn’t stray away from that narrative. He may not be the best in the pass game since he has limited speed, but on running downs he could be very helpful and a leader in the locker room. B
Daniel Thomas: I’m actually a fan of this pick solely for depth purposes. The best backup safety on the team is Andrew Wingard, so any help at the position is good. In his time at Auburn, he notched 5 interceptions, 199 total tackles and forced 3 fumbles. B
Collin Johnson: I feel like Johnson will be an asset in the red zone. His large stature at 6’6”, 220lbs+ will be great for jump-balls. The Jags receiving corp. has almost every kind of receiver you would need except for a big bodied guy to get up after 50/50 balls. While I’m not happy it took Dave this long to get more help for Minshew besides Shenault, this isn’t the worst consolation prize. C+
Jake Luton: Caldwell has had a history of selecting a QB in the 6th round. So, I’m not surprised by this pick. But the question is: will he be another Minshew, or a Tanner Lee? The Oregon State Beaver threw for 42 touchdowns to 11 interception in 3 years there. My money is on him being a camp body or not making the roster at all. D
Tyler Davis: Davis started his career at UConn as a Quarterback but switched to WR as a sophomore and ended up a TE before transferring to Georgia Tech as a TE. His receiving stats leave a lot to be desired but has some strength in run-blocking. In an already crowded position group, he’ll have to really show off to make the final roster. D+
Chris Claybrooks: Caldwell and Marrone both agreed that Claybrooks was drafted for returning purposes. Supposedly running a 4.25s 40 in a video sent to every NFL team, he has the speed to make a difference on special teams. In his time returning kicks at Memphis, he returned 11 for 338 yards for an average of 30.7 – a much higher average than the 24.2 yds/rt the Jaguars did in 2019. B+

Other Offseason News that Affected the Team

Oh my word…..there was so much that happened. I wish I had enough time to go into full detail on everything, but new job has my time extremely limited. I’ll unfortunately have to stick with short synopses on these.
Tom Coughlin Fired
The Tom Coughlin era 2.0 is finally over. The Jaguars have had enough of his dictatorship and days after the NFLPA sent a warning letter to players to stay away, they relieved him of his duties. A few of the grievances included:
  • Fining Dante Fowler Jr. $700k for not rehabbing in Jacksonville
  • Nearly forcing Jalen Ramsey and Telvin Smith to participate in voluntary workouts
  • Fining Fournette for sitting while inactive during the 2018 finale
But wait! There’s more! Not only did he have a number of grievances filed against him, he:
  • Gave Blake Bortles a deal averaging $18m a year, only to be released
  • Signed Nick Foles to a deal worth $88m, and wouldn’t let it go when it was proven he wasn’t the guy
  • Other general day-to-day nuances that make him an overall unlikable person
Now that he’s gone, the clocks have gone back to normal time and hopefully the morale of the team improves greatly. This is also a final chance for Doug Marrone and Dave Caldwell to show that a major factor in the teams lack of recent success can be directly attributed to the Tom Coughlin culture.
Telvin Smith arrested
Oooooh boy……what to say about this one. Former 5th round pick out of Florida State turned top MLB in the NFL arrested and charged with unlawful sexual activity with a minor. He retired in 2019 stating that he needed to focus on his family and health. Smith first met the girl in the summer of 2019, recently after she turned 17; and in their 2-month time together, they had sex multiple times in Smith’s car and home. Adding onto that, Smith offered the underage girl $200 to keep quiet, $100 of which she ultimately took. He was released on $50,003 bond. DON’T.FUCK.KIDS.OR.TEENS.PEOPLE.
Yannick Ngakoue
I don’t really know where to start this since so much has happened. Yannick Ngakoue is trying to pull a Jalen Ramsey and tweet himself out of Duval County. Ngakoue has been (and still is) very open about his displeasure towards the organization. Since late 2019, he has tweeted numerous times about wanting to be traded, even calling out Tony Khan (son of owner Shahid Khan) on the site. The team franchise tagged him and tried shopping around. Their asking price was a MINIMUM of a first round pick, but the Twitter tirade ruined basically any chance of that return. There was an offer that included a Pro Bowl player recently, which was declined since the player “didn’t fit their system”. People are split between whether he plays if he doesn’t get traded or sitting out the season, which I guess we’ll see once (if) the season commences.
No 5th year option for Fournette
Just like Ngakoue, the former 4th overall picks’ relationship with the front office has not been the most ideal. He was one of the many players that filed a grievance against the team for the fine for sitting on the bench in 2018 while inactive, which he got back. The Jaguars decided not to pick up his 5th year option, which would’ve netted Fournette $8.43 million. This means that, unless an extension is made, he will be an unrestricted free agent in 2021. The team will most likely not extend him beyond this season since they were even trying to get rid of him this offseason. They had discussions with teams about moving him, but no deal was done. Caldwell ultimately decided that Fournette will stick around and be the RB1 for the 2020 season but has not made any mention of beyond that. This is a contract year for him, and he wants to prove that he was worth the 4th overall selection.
As most of you may know, the Jacksonville Jaguars have another name: The London Jaguars
But in all seriousness, it’s been seeming to the general public that the team will move to London; especially after this year when Khan moved a second home game to Wembley Stadium. The reasoning behind the move is to increase local revenue. The front office believed that the reasoning behind the low revenue was the local market, not the product on the field. No one, not a single fan took this piece of news positively. It seemed like it was doomed from the start, something that could only be slowed down by say a…..pandemic? (un)Luckily so, one such pandemic happened. Creating an international travel restriction and preventing any NFL teams from playing in London. When the season does start, the home games, which would’ve been vs. the Lions and Browns in non-consecutive weeks, will actually be played at home. In other COVID news, former Jaguar great Tony Boselli contracted the Coronavirus and was admitted to the ICU for five days. Things got so bad that he was hooked up to two IVs and needed oxygen to help his breathing. Luckily, he was able to recover mostly and was released on March 30.

Projected Starting Lineup with Camp Battles

Positions won in a camp battle italicized
QB- Gardner Minshew: This is Gardner Minshew’s team in 2020. After a promising rookie season, added weapons and a more workable scheme, Minshew should solidify himself as the quarterback of the future - given he slows down on the turnovers.
RB- Leonard Fournette: In a contract year after his 5th year option was declined, he will be running with a chip on his shoulder. The team looks to run him as much as possible before he leaves.
TE- Tyler Eifert, James O’Shaughnessy: Free agent signing Eifert will fill the starting role as long as he is healthy. I think O’Shaughnessy beats out Josh Oliver for the TE2 spot due to last years chemistry with Minshew.
WR- D.J. Chark Jr., Dede Westbrook, Chris Conley, Laviska Shenault Jr.: This group is easily the strength of this offense. Chark looks to build on a really nice 2019 season, Westbrook and Conley weren’t bad as WR2 and 3, but they weren’t spectacular either. I added Shenault as well because he will be put in at a bunch of different positions.
LT- Cam Robinson: Robinson battled through an ACL injury in 2018 which basically sent his development back over a year. He’s been inconsistent in his time playing, playing well during some games but slacking big time in others.
LG- Andrew Norwell: The coaching staff is still sticking by the second highest paid guard in the NFL, even though he hasn’t been playing like it at all. He missed time in 2018 with a foot injury and has been battling through that since. But ultimately needs to play even remotely like the former 1st team all-pro in order to provide some return on his contract. He has been arguably the worst lineman on an already weak line.
C- Brandon Linder: One of the more underrated lineman in the league. Linder has been a consistent leader on the offense since being drafted in the 3rd round in 2014.
RG- A.J. Cann: Cann is just one of those guys where you kinda forget about him until he has a terrible game and then you remember that he’s actually not good. I’m considering this one a battle because I feel like rookie Bartch can snag a start or two during the season.
RT- Jawaan Taylor: After dropping to the Jags in the second round of last years’ draft, Taylor has lived up to expectations. While having the typical rookie growing pains, he was extremely solid playing against pro-level talent.
DL- Josh Allen, Abry Jones, Taven Bryan/Rodney Gunter, K’Lavon Chaisson: A group that is primed to surprise people. The Good Josh Allen is already a forced to be reckoned with, Abry Jones is a solid piece with some rotational help, Taven Bryan is only getting better at the run while Gunter will help with the pass rush. Finally, 1st round pick K’Lavon Chaisson comes in with an incredible motor to help with the loss of Ngakoue.
LB- Myles Jack, Joe Schobert, Quincy Williams: Myles Jack is on his 3rd position, so hopefully this will unlock his full athletic potential. Schobert will command the defense up the middle and drop into coverage. Quincy did not play well last year as a rookie. I hope he is able to progress this season or we might be in trouble there.
CB- C.J. Henderson, Rashaan Melvin, D.J. Hayden: 9th overall pick Henderson gets the start at the CB1 position. Melvin and Tre Herndon are going to be battling for the CB2 spot, but I give the nod to Melvin solely because he has more experience. D.J. Hayden is another underrated player in the NFL and is quietly one of the top Nickel corners.
S- Ronnie Harrison, Jarrod Wilson: Ronnie Harrison has been really coming into his own over the past season and will only get better. Jarrod Wilson played fairly well in 2019 and was exercised his option during the offseason.
K- Josh Lambo: Lambo is one of the most consistent kickers in the NFL today. Hitting over 94% of his kicks since coming to Jacksonville (while also leading the NFL in 2019 with 97.1% FG made).
P- Logan Cooke: Cooke is top 10 in yards/punt and has no need to worry about losing his job.
KR- Chris Claybrooks: The 7th rounder from Memphis was drafted specifically to return kicks, hopefully he brings the spark that the team desperately needs on ST.
PR- Dede Westbrook: Westbrook was 14th in the NFL in punt returns, he hasn’t been great in the field, but he also hasn’t been terrible.

Schedule Predictions

Week 1: IND (L) – Philip Rivers has had our number over the years (7-2, 24 touchdowns to 5 interceptions); and a team that’s a QB shy from competing now has the Jaguars literal kryptonite. I have my faith in the young defense, but Rivers will probably have a field day. 0-1
Week 2: @TEN (W) – Huh, no annual TNF Titans-Jaguars trash bowl? 2020 is really a weird year and I don’t like it. Here’s hoping that at least one trend sort of-continues: a split in games. The Jags revamped run defense slows down Derrick Henry for a game and CJ Henderson gets his first career pick off of Tannehill. Minshew is going to be the deciding factor in this game. 1-1
Week 3: MIA (W) – If it’s Fitzpatrick, it’s a loss. But I believe Tua takes the job early in the season(maybe?) and has his typical rookie growing pains. One of which is losing to a bad team that you shouldn’t lose to. 2-1
Week 4: @CIN (W) – Just like Tua, Burrow is set to have his growing pains. But this isn’t one of those games. The first overall pick goes into a shootout with The Man, The Myth, The Legend but comes up short due to a questionable play call in the final seconds. 3-1
Week 5: @HOU (L) – Even though Houston no longer has DeAndre Hopkins, Deshaun Watson is still able to work through the Jags D to come up with the win. 3-2
Week 6: DET (L) – Matthew Stafford has a really good week and Jeff Okudah outmatches his top 10 counterpart in another close game that comes down to game management experience. 3-3
Week 7: BYE
Week 8: @LAC (W) – Even though Jacksonville isn’t typically good on the west coast, they’re facing a team manned either by Tyrod Taylor or Justin Herbert. If they’re facing the latter (I’m sticking with a first round rookie start), then they’ll pull off a win they shouldn’t have. 4-3
Week 9: HOU (L) - Just like week 5, Watson goes off again while Brandon Cooks has 150+ yards receiving. Minshew attempts a 4th quarter comeback and brings it close, but ultimately falls short. 4-4
Week 10: @GB (L) - Aaron Rodgers is obviously unhappy with the drafting of Jordan Love and is on a mission to prove that he’s still got it in the league. Even though the rest of the roster is lacking pieces, you can never count out Rodgers. Especially when it’s against lower competition. 4-5
Week 11: PIT (L) – I feel like this could be the start (or continuation) of a decent non-divisional/former divisional rivalry. Big Ben is back and has a good back in James Conner. Besides JuJu Smith-Schuster and Eric Ebron, there isn’t anyone that inflicts fear in secondaries. This game could go either way, but I’m giving the nod to Pittsburgh in a close match. Their defense has enough to slow down our offense, but our defense lacks the “star-power” against their offense to really make up for it. 4-6
Week 12: @CLE (L) – Chubb is good, Beckham is good, Landry is good, Hooper is good. Unfortunately I don’t see us being close in this one. 4-7
Week 13: @MIN (L) – Minnesota, at this point, is looking towards the postseason and will not hold back. Thielen and Cook will carry their offense to 3 touchdowns while the Jags offense falls flat this week. 4-8
Week 14: TEN (L) – The split game. Again….WHY NO TNF?! The Jaguars come into the game tired and eliminated, while the Tacks come into the contest nearing a berth and are hungry for a win. Derrick Henry is Derrick Henry and just runs train. 4-9
Week 15: @BAL (L) - I may be biased but I’m not delusional. 4-10
Week 16: CHI (W) – I’m basing this off my prediction that Foles will outplay Trubisky and stays healthy. Foles plays better than Trubisky, but that’s not saying much. Henderson is able to keep Allen Robinson at bay; and while Khalil Mack will be effective, his impact will be kept to a best-case scenario. 5-10
Week 17: IND (W) – Indianapolis already clinched a playoff spot and is resting their starters for their inevitable 1st round elimination. So, the Jags will win in semi-convincing fashion against a team starting backups. 6-10
Final Record: 6-10. I genuinely believe this team has improved overall despite the major losses throughout the defense. There are going to be a lot of close games, especially if more players opt-out of the season. I feel like many of these games could steer in either direction. Besides Baltimore, Minnesota, Houston and Green Bay, of course. The ceiling of this team could push .500, but the floor could really bottom out at 1 or 2 wins. This team is extremely young and still needs to mesh. Depending on next years draft picks (looking at you, Rams. Please suck, thanks), this team is poised for a huge jump in the near future. This isn’t a full rebuild, it’s a partial one. I do not see this team making the postseason this year, but they could definitely play party-pooper to a couple of teams.


Jay Gruden – Gruden utilizes a West Coast Offensive scheme. This scheme was created by Bill Walsh in the 60’s when he worked for the Cincinnati Bengals as the QB coach. This offense relies heavily on shorter throws spread out throughout the field, eventually opening the top up for the occasional long ball. The use of a mobile QB and a variety of receivers can really help spread out the defense as well and easier for him to make throws.
Todd Wash – Although there have been rumors of a scheme change, and the signing of certain players seem to suggest the same, Todd Wash is still sticking a base 4-3 defense. One of the more common schemes, it involves four down linemen consisting of a nose tackle, a defensive tackle and two ends. Behind the linemen are 3 linebackers: The Mike, Will and Sam linebackers. The Mike, or middle, will line up behind the nose tackle and covers the A gap. The Will, or weak, lines up on the side not containing the TE and covers the B gap on that side. The Sam, or strong, lines up on the side of the Tight End and will contain the C gap on that side. The secondary will always have two CB’s, a SS and FS; the CB’s will cover the receivers, the FS will line up deep on the side of the weakside linebacker and the SS will do the same on the opposite side.

Reasons Why I Still Play FM08 – The First Five Years (Year 1, Part 2)
NB: This is part TWO of a TWO-part series. If you haven’t yet read part ONE, please click here.
Sunday 1st June 2008
The leagues are complete, the European competitions are decided, it’s time to see the damage done.
Premier League
We’ll start with the Premier League and, as expected, Man Utd held on to their strong advantage to retain the title, the top-scoring Reds finishing 1 goal and 6 points ahead of Arsenal. Liverpool and Man City claim the remaining Champions League places, whilst Portsmouth finished a point ahead of Everton to claim the first available UEFA Cup place.
Fulham would’ve needed a mathematical miracle to have survived relegation, and Middlesbrough were already related going into the final day so a draw with Wigan meant little to them, but Wigan were already safe thanks in part to what was essentially a relegation play-off match between Birmingham and Sunderland. A win for either team would see them survive but a draw would not be enough for Sunderland.
David Connolly stepped up and scored a highly contentious goal for Sunderland in a tightly contested game. Birmingham City couldn’t believe what they believed was an offside goal was allowed to stand and replays have since shown that they may have had every right to feel aggrieved about that goal. They did not, however, do enough to get back into the match and although an equaliser would’ve seen them survive, they could not muster one and now drop down into the Championship.
Kevin Doyle has the last laugh in his ongoing feud with Leroy, pipping him to the Golden Boot for Reading with 25 goals to Lita’s 24. Andy Johnson rounds off the top 3 with 23 goals for Everton. Cani’s 16 assists see him take the non-existent playmaker of the year award, 3 clear of John Carew. I shall forever call this the Playmaker Award now.
The league table is as follows:
Overachievers: Man City, Derby County, West Ham
Underachievers: Tottenham, Chelsea, Bolton, Middlesbrough
West Ham seal European football through the Euro Vase, aka Intertoto Cup, by virtue of the fact that apparently neither Everton or Chelsea, nor Blackburn bothered to apply.
As we know, Portsmouth secured European football through 5th place but wait… Newcastle and Derby are also in Europe?!
This can only mean one thing…
FA Cup
Derby comfortably defeated Blackburn 3-1 at Wembley while Newcastle played out a dramatic 3-3 draw with Portsmouth. The game would be settled by penalties, with Portsmouth scoring their first 2 and Newcastle missing them both. Nerves got the better of the Pompey players as Newcastle scored their next 3 and Portsmouth missed all of them. Incredible scenes in the capital.
Not to be outdone, Derby and Newcastle would contest a fierce final themselves. James Milner wins the header from the goalkeeper’s free kick to nod down to Barton who returns a through ball for Milner to slot home in the 22nd minute. However, Derby would hit back on the brink of half-time, in part thanks for a huge stroke of good fortune: David Jones’ free kick on the edge of the box taking a huge deflection off the wall to wrong-foot Shay Given.
Deadlocked at 90 minutes, the game moved into extra time. More free kick fortune for Derby as Ulrik Yttergård Jenssen’s freekick deflects off the wall as well and into the path of Daniel Fredheim Holm who lashed home high into the net. However with the clock pushing 122 minutes, Derby go on the attack instead of taking it the corner flag. They would be punished with a flowing Newcastle counterattack, Nicky Butt feeding Derek Boateng who flights a ball to the back post for an unmarked Claudio Caçapa to nod home a dramatic late equaliser.
The penalty shootout would be quick and painless. Derby’s players, mentally crushed from conceding such a late goal and dissolved of all confidence, missed all 3 of their penalties to concede the FA Cup to Newcastle United.
Consolation for Derby is that, because Newcastle already secured European football through their League Cup victory, they will also be playing in Europe thanks to being FA Cup runners up. Incredible for a team that was predicted to be relegated this season.
Charlton return to the top division, hanging on to top spot despite losing to West Brom on a final day, as Sheffield United could only muster a draw at home to Southampton. Watford, West Brom, QPR and Southampton make up the playoff hopefuls whilst Hull, Sheffield Wednesday and Colchester all drop down into League One. All three relegated teams’ fates were sealed before the final day, so Hull’s 2-0 win at home to Ipswich was in vain.
Stoke and Crystal Palace played each other in a play-off decider, with Stoke knowing that any win would secure them 6th place. Palace needed a win against Stoke and a favour from title-chasing Sheffield United against Southampton to leapfrog both Stoke and Southampton into 6th. As such, Southampton needed to better Stoke’s result to secure the playoffs. As it transpired, Crystal Palace’s dramatic 90th minute winner away to Stoke was not enough as Southampton played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Sheffield United.
Massive credit to Scunthorpe who were predicted to finish rock bottom this season and defied all expectations by finishing 9th, just 3 points off the playoffs. Unbelievable effort from QPR too, who flouted their 18th place prediction by finishing 5th in the playoff places.
Marlon King would finish top scorer for Watford with 30 goals, well clear of second place István Ferenczi, Kevin Kyle picking up the Playmaker Award with 14 assists.
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 1
QPR 1 – 1 West Brom
Southampton 2 – 0 Watford
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 2
West Brom 2 – 0 QPR << West Brom win 3-1 on aggregate
Watford 2 – 1 Southampton << Southampton win 3-2 on aggregate
Playoff Final
Southampton 1 – 2 West Brom
A cagey 2-1 win for West Brom as Chris Brunt scores a late winner from a set piece. Sherjill MacDonald may well have offside for the opener as Zoltan Gera played a lovely ball in to the near post and Southampton may well have a right to be upset with referee Lee Probert. If the build-up to the equaliser was scrappy, the finish certainly wasn’t: a ball lifted over the top by Jason Euell is despatched exquisitely on the volley by David McGoldrick. Chris Brunt would have the last laugh in this one, sticking a 20yard free kick into the top corner to send West Bromwich Albion back into the Premier League.
Overachievers: QPR, Scunthorpe, Barnsley
Underachievers: Preston, Sheffield Wednesday, Cardiff City, Colchester United
League One
Business as expected for the top two as Nottingham Forest win the league and Swansea City seal automatic promotion. Yeovil needed favours on the final day to usurp Swansea but did themselves none in the process by drawing in what transpired to be a dead rubber against Bristol Rovers. Doncaster needed to better Carlisle’s result to go up but instead both teams lost, and Carlisle held onto 6th place. Brighton could’ve taken advantage of that slip but lost to champions Nottingham Forest, whilst Oldham could’ve shocked everybody but ultimately lost to Southend instead.
All four relegated teams were already down going into the final day: Northampton, Leeds, Tranmere and Leyton Orient.
Frazier Campbell of Wallsall and Marvin Williams of Yeovil would share the Golden Boot between them with 32 goals, 4 clear of veteran striker Tore André Flo. Brian Howard’s impressive displays for Yeovil meant he claimed the Playmaker Award with 20 assists.
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 1
Luton 2 – 1 Walsall
Carlisle 1 – 3 Yeovil
Playoff Semi Finals – leg 2
Walsall 0 – 0 Luton << Luton win 2-1 on aggregate
Yeovil 3 – 1 << Yeovil win 6-2 on aggregate
Playoff Final
Luton 4 – 1 Yeovil << Luton promoted after extra time
An open-ended affair with chances aplenty for both sides, Luton taking the lead inside the first 5 minutes, full-back Alan Goodall whipping a lovely ball into the near post for Sam Parkin to tuck away. Yeovil would be reduced to ten me early in the second half, Terrell Forbes hospital pass clearance met by the head of Luton’s Chris Hackett who nodded into the path of striker Drew Talbot. Talbot was unable to get his shot away clearly as Matthew Rose stuck out a leg to bring Talbot down and was sent off for a professional foul, drawing large protests from the Yeovil players.
Still, Yeovil pressed and five minutes later they’d find an unlikely equaliser. Brian Howard, standing over a free kick 30 yards out, goes for the audacious and gets a huge slice of luck as the free kick clatters off the wall, sends the keeper the wrong way and flies into the empty net.
Brave Yeovil would hold out the 90 minutes but unfortunately, Luton would make the extra man count in extra time, substitute Sol Davis starting the procession with a delightful free kick on the edge of the box. Tidy finishes from David Edwards and Willie Gibson rounded off a fine performance from Luton as they sealed their place in next season’s Championship.
Overachievers: Walsall, Brighton, Cheltenham, Yeovil
Underachievers: Leeds, Tranmere, Millwall
Maybe slightly harsh to put Leeds in there with a 15-point deduction, but without it they would’ve finished 10th which is still way below expectations.
League Two
Impressive Bury romped to a surprise League Two victory, 5 points clear of Peterborough who in turn were 6 points clear of Chesterfield. On-loan youngster Chedwyn Evans’ 24 league goals complementing striker partner Andy Bishop’s 22 league goals to good effect.
MK Dons’ Jemal Johnson would score 4 goals in a 5-2 away thriller at Brentford to snatch the Golden Boot away from Morecambe’s Michael Twiss, who must’ve hoped his two goals against Barnet would’ve been enough, Johnson finishing the season on 25 goals. Kevin McBride of Darlington wins the Playmaker Award.
Grimsby could’ve been relegated on the last day had they, as they did, lost to Hereford but in the end it mattered not as Barnet and Mansfield, who only needed a win to try and survive, both suffered heavy defeats to drop out of the Football League.
Playoff Semi Final – leg 1
Shrewsbury 1 – 2 Darlington
Macclesfield 0 – 2 Morecambe
Playoff Semi Final – leg 2
Darlington 1 – 1 Shrewsbury << Darlington win 3-1 on aggregate
Morecambe 3 – 2 Macclesfield << Morecambe win 5-2 on aggregate
Playoff final
An incredible event as teams predicted to finish 12th and 21st met in the playoff final. Morecambe’s firepower really should’ve seen them through here, but it was Darlington who took an early lead through Gregg Blundell.
Darlington must’ve feared the worst when top scorer Pawel Abbott was taken off injured after the half-hour mark. It took Morecambe until the 79th minute to get off the mark through, Jamie Forrester providing the breakthrough. Smart thinking from goalkeeper Steven Drench sees Forrester run through a gap the size of Jupiter between the two centre backs to collect the long punt forward and slot home.
Darlington would somehow have the last laugh though, Tommy Wright slotting him neatly 3 minutes later for a famous win, taking Darlington up to League One
Overachievers: Morecambe, Macclesfield, Accrington Stanley, Darlington, Bury
Underachievers: Bradford, Rotherham, Brentford, MK Dons, Rochdale, Grimsby, Barnet, Mansfield
Honestly, take your pick. Crazy season in League Two.
Oxford won the Conference Premier, 9 points ahead of the playoff hopefuls. Rushden & Diamonds steamrollered Stevenage 4-0 in the final, who themselves had reached the final via a 90th minute winner against Crawley, who themselves had an excellent season after being predicted to finish 19th and instead finished 2nd, even with a 6-point deduction. Simeon Jackson wins top goal scorer with 33 league goals for Rushden & Diamonds.
Overachievers: Salisbury, Histon, Crawley, Rushden & Diamonds
Underachievers: Exeter, York, Torquay, Ebbsfleet, Kidderminster, Burton
Southport win the Conference North and Boston United win the playoff final, beating Kettering on penalties. Alfreton, Hyde and Vauxhall are all relegated.
Lewes win the Conference South and Dorchester Town win the playoff final, beating Braintree on penalties. Havant & Waterlooville, Hayes & Yeading and Fisher Athletic are all relegated.
League round-up. We’ve already talked about the overachievers and underachievers, so let’s quickly compare the media predictions to the teams’ actual finishing positions. Should we castigate the media? Or should be laud and slate the teams who, for better or worse, defied expectations?
The final position is denoted to the right of the team, with the change from the prediction one over.

What do the media know, eh?
The game also has its own season summary for each league which pretty much covers everything I’ve already shared but for those interested, see below:
It seems like forever ago since we saw European competition. I will skip ahead, so here are the First and Second Knockout Round results.
First Round
Second Round
Gritty performances throughout. For those of you wondering why FC Bayern are in the UEFA Cup it’s because they finished 4th in the Bundesliga in 06/07 behind champions VfB Stuttgart, 2nd place Schalke and 3rd place Werder Bremen. They entered at the UEFA Cup first round, essentially a final qualifying round. In-game, they defeated FC Twente 5-1 on aggregate to reach the group stage. They finished 3rd in their group, behind Fiorentina and Bolton.

Quarter Finals
All relatively straight forward in the Quarter Finals too, Bayern and Tottenham progress comfortably whilst Porto and Fiorentina had to do a bit of digging in to get the job done.
FC Bayern (6) 3 - 0 (1) Werder Bremen
Dinamo Kiev (2) 2 - 2 (4) Porto
Tottenham (5) 1 - 1 (2) Blackburn
Fiorentina (3) 0 - 0 (2) Girondins Bordeaux

Semi Finals
Bayern and Fiorentina met again in the Semi Finals to relive their group match (which was a 1-1 draw). The Semi Final would prove to be hotly contested again, Bayern stealing the victory in the 90th minute through Bastian Schweinsteiger, although replays show he may well have been offside. Luca Toni and Adrian Mutu were the other goal scorers.
The second leg lived up to the billing as well, Bayern taking the lead mid-way through the first half through Miroslav Klose’s smart run and finish. Mark van Bommel added an unlikely second on the night through a sublime freekick which left Fiorentina needing 4 goals to go through. Adrian Mutu led a one-man crusade with a brace in the 63rd and 69th minute respectively before substitute Massimo Gobbi’s tidy 73rd minute finish set up a nervy finale. However, La Viola couldn’t add to their tally and Bayern reached the final.
A tight contest in the other match was lifted with Steed Malbranque’s goal on the stroke of half-time, simply sumptuous freekick from the corner of the box, lifted over the wall and into the back of the net on the near side. Some fine work from José Bosingwa down the right-hand side allowed him to whip a cross into the far post for Raúl Meireles to head in an equaliser to ensure the spoils were shared going into the second leg.
Robbie Keane scored his 25th goal of the season here with a cool finish, showing that you don’t need to blast the ball to score, Tottenham now sitting pretty knowing that Porto needed to score twice to progress. A moment of madness, however, from Didier Zokora left them in a spot of bother. Zokora was shown a straight red card on the brink of half-time, his second of the season, after catching Malkhaz Asatiani with his elbow, referee Stuart Dougal showing no hesitation in sending the Ivorian off. However, Porto were unable to even pluck out an equaliser, let alone a winner and Tottenham progress.
FC Bayern (4) 2 - 3 (4) Fiorentina << FC Bayern advance on away goals
Porto (1) 0 - 1 (2) Tottenham

Bayern were utterly ruthless in the final, showing no mercy to Tottenham in a 3-0 demolishing, all of the goals coming in the first half courtesy of Luca Toni and a brace from Miroslav Klose. The lack of defensive cover in the midfield really cost them and Kevin-Prince Boateng had his work cut out trying to fill-in in Zokora’s absence, indeed getting himself sent off in the 79th minute for a second bookable offence.
Miroslav Klose’s two goals in the final means he takes home the Golden Boot with 12 goals, edging out RC Lens’ Aruna Dindane and team-mate Luca Toni by one goal. Riccardo Montolivo of Fiorentina picks up the Playmaker Award with 8 assists.
Champions League
Now, for what you’ve all been waiting for – the Champions League!
We left you with the Quarter Final line-ups:

Get ready for mayhem...
None of the teams would disappoint in this round either. Liverpool beating Real Madrid 2-1 away in the first leg only to almost throw it away with a 2-1 loss at home, thanks for Raúl’s 90th minute goal. Liverpool may well have been questioning just why the final whistle hadn’t already blown, but Jamie Carragher would be the extra time hero though, scoring a scrappy goal after a corner was failed to be cleared by Madrid.
Inter Milan’s first leg away goal helped them on their way to beating Man Utd over two legs, Adriano powering home from an indirect free kick opportunity. Paul Scholes would level the tie up when they met again in Italy, but former Arsenal man Patrick Vieira would seal the tie for Inter with a wonderful 30-yard screamer into the top corner.
A contender for match-of-the-competition as Arsenal overcame Barcelona in a 10-goal feast. Thierry Henry’s sub 5-minute brace against his former club, including one after just 18 seconds, was pegged back by Robin van Persie’s own brace and the Gunners would lead 3-2 at half-time thanks to “wonderkid” Nicklas Bendtner. Bendtner would be at it again shortly after half-time, thanks in part to even more craftsmanship from Francesc Fàbregas. A headed goal from William Gallas at a corner put Arsenal 5-2 up and looking comfortable but Barcelona went on the attack the corresponding kick off, Xavi Hernández sliding Ronaldinho in to make it 5-3, Jens Lehmann going walkabouts by all accounts.
Bendtner would complete has hattrick on 70 minutes though, slotting home after a neat turn in the corner of the box, sending Andrea Barzagli to another dimension. Barcelona would secure their 5th away goal though, Thierry Henry completing his own hat-trick after William Gallas failed to deal with a ball over the tip. Final score 6-4. And breathe.
The second leg was less entertaining, but Thierry Henry would put his former club to the sword again with two more goals and, despite Rafael Márquez being sent off for an astonishing elbow to Bakary Sagna’s face, Barcelona held out for the win on away goals. 2-0 on the night, 6-6 on aggregate. The most disgraceful part of the night was the players surrounding referee Thorsten Kinhöfer after the red card. Pundits are still perplexed as to what they were complaining about.
Finally onto Celtic, who produced the most breath-taking First Knockout Round ties against Valencia would continue to produce high entertainment value against PSV. Celtic held the advantage after a 1-1 draw in Eindhoven, but PSV would not go down without a fight. Rodrigo Palacio opened the scoring after Scott Brown needlessly lost the ball and some poor play from goalkeeper Artur Boruc, less than 45seconds into the match. Maciej Zurawski would dig his goalkeeper out of a hole 3 minutes later, beating Heurelho Gomes at his near post before Rodrigo hit back again on 8 minutes, capitalising on another poor error from Artur Boruc.
John de Jong would add to icing to a rich and wholesome cake, flicking the ball into the far corner of the net beyond Boruc’s reach and PSV looked comfortable leading 4-2 on aggregate, knowing Celtic now needed 3 goals to progress. PSV would lose key midfielder Edison Méndez to injury on 27 minutes but it would take until the second half for Celtic to take advantage, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink finishing off an attack before Maciej Zurawski would set up a frantic last 5 minutes after getting on the end of Lee Naylor’s inch-perfect cross. Celtic couldn’t produce one more moment of magic though and the tie would finish 4-4 on aggregate, PSV going through by virtue of away goals.
Real Madrid (3) 2 - 2 (4) Liverpool
Man Utd (1) 1 - 1 (2) Inter
Arsenal (6) 0 - 2 (6) Barcelona << Barcelona advance on away goals
PSV (4) 3 - 3 (4) Celtic << PSV advance on away goals

Semi Finals
Could the Semi Finals produce the same magic? Liverpool were paired up against Inter Milan and Barcelona were drawn against PSV.
Barcelona all but ended PSV hopes of an underdog victory, smashing them 4-0 in the first leg at home, Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho both scoring braces, Ronaldinho’s both coming from penalties (and both when Henry was on a hat-trick so he can probably consider himself unlucky to be allowed to take one of them). With Edison Méndez still missing, Sebastián Battaglia was asked to step in but he was easily over-run by the Barcelona midfield.
PSV showed incredible fight immediately in the return fixture, going 2-0 up inside the first 7 minutes through Palacio’s lob and Ismael Aissati’s smart finish, but Barcelona soon calmed everything down, scoring 4 unanswered goals in return before half-time courtesy of Barzagli, two from Henry and a brilliant Ronaldinho free kick.. Gastón Fernández scored again late in the second half, but with the tie already done and dusted, it was more for pride than anything else. Barcelona win 4-3 on the night and 8-3 on aggregate.
Liverpool hosted Inter Milan at Anfield for the first leg of the other semi final and took a first half-lead through a stunning John Arne Riise free kick. Steven Gerrard forced Júlio César into an own goal after initially saving Ryan Babel’s long-range effort before Fernando Torres turned provider for Ryan Babel to breakaway and make it 3-0. Zlatan Ibrahimović gave Inter Milan some hope with a late away goal, pouncing on a rare error from Jamie Carragher in the 88th minute.
Liverpool were in good form going into the return leg, having battered fierce rivals Man Utd 4-0 at home at the weekend but it was Inter Milan who dominated this game for long periods, really putting the Liverpool team to the sword. Their dominance paid off in the 21st minute when Ibrahimović retrieved Maicon’s pinpoint pass and slotted into the bottom corner. Torres would ease the pressure on Liverpool with an equaliser at the start of the second half, his 20th goal of the season passed into the bottom corner; the keeper probably should’ve done better with it though. Inter claimed offside, but I’m not convinced.
Incensed, Inter went on the attack immediately, both literally and figuratively, injuring Torres before Ibrahimović fed Adriano who had the vision to pick out Esteban Cambiasso to restore Inter’s lead on the night. A great counterattack. Inter would make Liverpool pay once more for sloppy defending when Steve Finnan was beaten to the ball too easily by Adriano who cut it back for Maxwell to fire home. Pepe Reina will be disappointed when he looks back on that, as he really should be saving those kinds of shots. 3-1 on the night and unbelievably 4-4 on aggregate.
Extra time beckoned but Adriano was not interested in penalties, whipping a delightful ball around the corner for his strike partner David Suazo, clean through on goal to slot past a helpless Reina. Liverpool would go all out offensive from then until the final whistle but couldn’t muster one last goal to salvage the result and Inter go through to final, 4-1 on the night, 5-4 on aggregate.
Liverpool (4) 1 - 4 (5) Inter
Barcelona (8) 4 - 3 (3) PSV

And so for the final. Inter Milan vs Barcelona. The world held high hopes after the last few rounds: they wanted goals.
They were not disappointed.

Barcelona opened the scoring on 23 minutes, emerging “wonderkid” Lionel Messi slotting Samuel Eto’o through to score his 20th goal of the season. The lead wouldn’t last too long though, as Ibrahimović fed Suazo to equaliser on 31 minutes. Eto’o would restore the lead again soon after, Deco sliding a lovely pass through the defence for Eto’o to bury.
Controversy followed in the second half. Xavi loses the ball to Maxwell inside the Inter half who in turn goes on a mazy run towards goal exchanging passes with Cambiasso along the way. He is allegedly obstructed by Zambrotta outside the penalty arc, but replays show that it’s a blatant dive. To make matters worse, the referee inexplicably gives a penalty! Ibrahimović slots it without question. 2-2.
63 minutes and Puyol is needlessly dragged out of position to close down Stankovic who instead slips in Ibrahimović for his second of the game. Minutes later, a poor throw-in from Zambrotta gifts the ball to Ibrahimović to seal his hat-trick and put the game to bed, Inter holding out for a 4-2 win in the final against Barcelona!
Despite the result, Ibrahimović would finish runner up to on 14 goals to Thierry Henry and Rodrigo Palacio in the Golden Boot race, the latter pair netting 15 goals a-piece. Andrés Iniesta would take home the Playmaker Award with 8 assists ahead of team-mate Ronaldinho’s 7. Despite an average rating of 7.83, Ronaldinho would also finish runner-up to Ibrahimović in the Champions League best player, with Henry rounding off the top 3.
Now, because does not save an accessible history of stats and results, they are essentially wiped as the season ends, so I decided to end each 4th game file on June 1st. The game resets around about the 24th or 25th but I wanted to stop the game after the season had finished and before any international competitions began.
But the year is 2008 so we all know what’s coming…
This does mean I’m going to have to go into the game file for Year 2, but I’ll keep everything else a secret. Euro 2008 deserves to be inside the 07/08 season.
I do have all the results for the other international tournaments akin to this which make up the Confederations Cup competitors, so I will give a very brief oversight into those as well as they happen.
I’m not going to go into how each team qualified for the tournament unless you specifically ask about it in the comments. Let’s look at the groups, with the help of some expert MS Paint skills to display their current world rankings too.
The most notable changes are that Denmark, England, Scotland and Finland all qualified for this edition and Spain, French, Russia and Poland, who all qualified in the real Euro 2008, miss out. Hosts Switzerland and Austria naturally have terrible ratings due to not playing many competitive internationals as they didn’t need to qualify for their own tournament. Group B looks tough, and the Scots may well fancy an upset in Group D.
Editors predictions: England. Not just because I’m biased, but because on paper they have the squad to do it. The Golden Generation may not have succeeded in real life, but this is stats-based fantasy. Football’s coming home! Failing that, and with France and Spain both missing, it’s anyone’s to take. I’m putting money on a Ronaldo-backed Portugal.
I will run through them Group by Group, even though it won’t strictly be in the order. All will be well again come the Knockout Rounds.
(editor note: a picture of all the groups is at the bottom. I had to cut back to 20 images)
Group A
Croatia and Sweden played out an entertaining 2-2 draw that didn’t get going until the last 30 minutes. Jurica Vranjes thought he’d snatched a late 87th minute for Croatia until Marcus Allbäck equalised 2 minutes later. Two early goals for Denmark were enough to see off Switzerland despite themselves pulling a goal back before half-time, a 2-1 finish.
The second round of fixtures produced even more drama, a Tranquillo Barnetta hat-trick for Switzerland helping to sink Sweden 4-3 in a back-and-forth game, Gelson Fernandes eventually settling the contest for the Swiss. An Eduardo-inspired Croatia took the game to Denmark and a late Nicklas Bendtner goal wasn’t enough to stop Croatia winning 3-1.
Any win for Croatia against Switzerland sends them through. A draw would also suffice. Switzerland need to win, although a draw would do if Sweden could beat Denmark. Any positive Denmark result paired with a Croatia win sees them progress, or even a win and a Croatia/Swiss draw. Sweden must beat Denmark and hope Croatia win. If the Swiss beat Croatia, they need to win and hope for a goal difference swing.
Drama all round as Sweden’s tournament hopes end with a 2-1 defeat to Denmark. Switzerland know they realistically need to win but can only muster a 2-2 draw with Croatia.
Denmark top the group, Croatia are runners up.

Group B
Czech Republic and Austria open the tournament with an entertaining 2-2 draw, Austria snatching a 90th minute equaliser through Steffen Hofmann after a mistake from Zdenek Grygera. Turkey and Portugal would step it up a notch by playing out a 3-2 game which, in truth, Portugal were always in control of. 3-0 up inside 21minutes, Turkey made a second half comeback but the 2nd goal in the 89th minute was too little, too late.
Goals from Deco and Tomas Rosicky in the first half ensured the spoils were shared in a game where the Czech Republic dominated Portugal for large portions of the game and will be disappointed to only draw 1-1. (editor note: the game seems to think Portugal completed 200% of their crosses in this match…) Turkey, on the other hand, turned their dominance into a 2-0 win over Austria.
Portugal need to beat Austria to secure top spot whereas Austria know they need a big win and some good fortune for a draw in the other game. Any winner of Turkey/Czech Republic will qualify, but a draw for Turkey should be enough, barring a miracle from Austria. It’s feasible that Portugal could still be knocked out, though very unlikely.
And as it happens, Portugal make light work of Austria, Maniche and Cristiano Ronaldo scoring first half goals to seal the tie 2-0 in an otherwise boring match. Czech Republic would be made to pay for not getting the winner against Portugal, being torn apart comprehensively by a relentless Turkey side with braces for both Nihat and Halil Altintop, 4-0 the final score line.
Portugal top the group, Turkey are runners up.

Group C
The last group to get going, but no lack of entertainment here, with Romania cruising to a 2-0 win against Greece. All of the drama came in the much-anticipated England/Germany match though and it met all expectations. Darren Bent’s headed opener was cancelled out by Miroslav Klose pouncing on Paul Robinson’s fumble, but Wayne Rooney would restore England’s lead halfway through the first half. Bayern’s Lukas Podolski pulled it level again before half-time before the teams seemed set to see out a 2-2 draw. However, deep into stoppage time at the end of 90 minutes, up steps David Beckham to do what David Beckham does best – dispatch freekicks into the top corner. 3-2. There was still time after the restart for Steven Gerrard to be shown a straight-red for hacking down Klose with two-feet.
Germany would take their revenge out on Greece in the next game, securing a 4-2 victory, whilst England would maintain their good form by persevering for a late 2-0 win against Romania.
England are already through and Greece cannot qualify so their final game is a dead rubber, other than Greece trying not to finish bottom and England trying to assure top spot. The winner of Germany/Romania will go through, but a draw will be enough for Germany by virtue of Goal Difference.
England consign Greece to 4th place in the group with a routine 2-0 win, goals from Wayne Rooney and Shaun Wright-Phillips enough to see them off. A cagey first-half in the Germany/Romania match became a much more open-ended affair after Daniel Niculae’s brilliant 47th minute opener, a sublime solo run culminating in a lobbed finish. Miroslav Klose fired back 10 minutes later with 2 goals in quick succession to swing the tie but Romania, not prepared to lie down, equalised again through Eric Bicfalvi. Romania would do the unthinkable though, Adrian Mutu bending a delightful goal into the corner to secure a 3-2 victory for Romania.
England top the group, Romania are runners up.

Group D
Italy kicked off the group against Finland with a nervy win, having gone 1-0 down to a 60th minute penalty from Ari Nyman. Filippo Inzaghi pulled it level in the 82nd minute before Antonin Cassano’s stoppage time winner stole all the points from Finland. Scotland were less keen to roll over though and will be disappointed to have thrown away a 3-1 lead at the 85th minute, Wesley Sneijder and Roy Makaay with late goals to snatch a 3-3 draw.
Holland vs Italy was billed as the one to watch in this group, and rightly so, both teams amassing almost 30 shots between them, but with both keepers in good form, the match would be tied 1-1, Riccardo Montolivo cancelled out Robin van Persie’s first half strike. Scotland have certainly found their shooting boots at this tournament after putting 4 past Finland, but they were made to work for the victory with the Finns taking the lead and later equalising through Mika Ääritalo’s brace. James McFadden’s strike would retake the lead before Barry Ferguson put the icing on the cake of a 4-2 win.
Scotland need any result against Italy to go through. A loss through, coupled with a likely Holland win overly Finland, would send them crashing out. Finland cannot progress. Holland must win to go through, as must Italy.
Holland do indeed get their win against Finland, dominating from start to finish, although the score line should really have been bigger than 2-1. Scotland’s hopes of sneaking out of the group were dealt an immediate blow as they went 1-0 down to Alessandro Del Piero’s header inside 45 seconds. Alberto Gilardino would double the lead in the 20th minute and although Kenny Miller pulled one back in the second half, they couldn’t find a second goal to escape the group. Final score 2-1 to Italy.
Italy top the group, Holland are runners up.
Quarter Finals
Turkey – Denmark
Croatia – Portugal
England – Holland
Italy – Romania
No real humdingers here as all of the teams tightened up a lot.
Turkey did away with Denmark 2-0 in a game that the Danes will be disappointed to have not scored in. Nihat and an own goal from Per Krøldrup sealed the game.
Portugal were perhaps the better team in their tie against Croatia but still had to work hard to secure a 2-1 victory, Eduardo’s first half strike cancelled out by Maniche and Ronaldo in the second.
More late, late drama in this one as Frank Lampard scored a trademark goal, arriving from deep to sweep home a Wright-Phillips cross. England must’ve thought that’d be enough but Robin van Persie struck early into stoppage time to level the tie up 1-1. But cometh the 94th minute, cometh the man: Holland do not deal with a long clearance properly and Wright-Phillips skips past his man on the wing to lay the ball into the path of the onrushing Lampard who buries it high into the far corner. Holland complain to the linesman but really, they should be looking at themselves for some shoddy defending.
Romania will be disappointed they had to take Italy all the way to penalties to beat them, having been arguably the better team throughout. 1-1 at full time but a comfortable 4-2 shootout victory as their excellent tournament marches on, the only sour point being Stefan Radu’s 121st minute red card for a horrific tackle on Antonio Cassano.
Turkey 2-0 Denmark
Croatia 1-2 Portugal
England 2-1 Holland
Italy 1-1 Romania << Romania advance on penalties
Semi Finals
Turkey – Romania
Portugal – England
One thing guaranteed in this tournament now is that there will be an outsider in the final. Turkey left it late, but a brace from Nihat would prove enough to put Romania to the sword and end their dream run. Romania might look back and feel like they could’ve done better with both goals though.
Manchester United teammates Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney did battle in this one, both getting their names on the scoresheet with clinical finishes. There would be nothing to settle the two sides until the very end: penalties. Hugo Viana, Nuno Valente, Jorge Andrade all scored whilst Gareth Barry, John Terry and Steven Gerrard did likewise. After Miguel fired home, Michael Carrick would see his penalty saved by goalkeeper Ricardo. However, some Paul Robinson heroics against Ricardo Carvalho gave Rio Ferdinand a chance to get back into the shootout. The pressure was too much though, and he slammed his penalty against the inside of the post to see Portugal through to the final, a final which Deco will miss with suspension after hacking Wright-Phillips down with two feet in 120th minute for an early bath.
Turkey 2-0 Romania
Portugal 1-1 England << Portugal advance on penalties
No Third Place Playoff in the Euros, straight into the final where Turkey meet Portugal, looking for an upset. Nihat and Mehmet Aurélio’s persistence forced the breakthrough on 20 minutes but a smart short freekick routine 2 minutes later from Portugal saw Maniche hit a bending daisy cutter into the bottom corner to equalise. Into the second half and Mehmet Topuz played one of the balls of the tournament from deep, around the defence and into the path of Nihat who didn’t need to break stride to hit an unbelievable shot on the half-volley. Rumour has it that Nihat lost Ricardo Carvalho so well, he is still searching for Nihat to this day. Turkey would hold on to their 2-1 advantage until the final whistle to become unlikely European Champions 2008.
And so that concludes the first season back of Reasons Why I Still Play FM08, also unofficially called What Could Have Been.
This grew to be significantly longer than I expected, and I thoroughly enjoyed writing it, even if it did take me well over 15 hours to do so.
If anybody has any specific questions about any aspects of this particular game, please feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer them, whether it’s information about non-league clubs, club finances, world rankings, wonderkid regens etc.
I will also happily run through competitions like the African Cup of Nations and the Olympics, although competitions like the Asian Cup, Gold Cup, Copa América have yet to happen on this file.
I have at least 5 seasons worth of game files now, and seasons 2-5 are all structured the same in terms of save dates: September 1st, December 1st, March 1st and June 1st.
Congratulations if you got this far, I applaud your perseverance. I hope you enjoyed it. See you soon for Year 2.

Travel Photography Ideas
EVERY LOCATION ALL OF US go to offers its specific appear, personality, as well as atmosphere. In the event that we would like pictures in our moves to become great as well as enduring, they ought to catch many of these characteristics, as well as state just as much in regards to a location because provide the literal appear from it’s a travel photographer.
We're not likely in order to lengthy keep in mind the actual odor as well as hype of the blossom backyard within springtime, the actual amazement associated with looking with regard to the very first time in the hill all of us plan to Travel, the actual caress of the exotic air flow, the actual excitement of the large roller coaster, the sweetness in our very first crazy keep, or even the actual adrenaline associated with rafting whitened drinking water. The pictures have to provide these types of along with other feelings back again, in order to bring about the reminiscences, and also to connect the way you experienced in order to other people. To get this done, we have to believe as well as really feel around appear whenever aiming to create pictures.
First of all, consider exactly what created you choose, of all the locations on the planet, to select this specific location. What ever this is—the seaside, the actual trips, the actual hill, the actual art galleries, the actual food—obviously you like. In the event that this did not, a person would not end up being heading presently there. Which website or even exercise (or inactivity) is among the points you need to picture. However you will find most likely a number of other fascinating facets of the area you might not be familiar with. That is exactly where investigation is available in.
Photography enthusiasts with regard to Nationwide Geographic invest considerable time performing investigation. This can help all of us determine what is there—what the area is all about as well as exactly what topics we have to include. Study pamphlets as well as journey publications. Visit your local library, bookstores, or even on to the net. Speak with buddies who've been presently there. Get journey info in the nation's embassy. Discover anything you may that's appropriate, as well as get through this.
Knowing the actual traditions as well as customs of the location is essential. To begin with, you need to make sure to behave in a manner that isn't impolite or even unpleasant when you are presently there, and it is difficult to understand what is suitable as well as exactly what is not along with a few understanding. Additionally, it may assist you to realize points individuals do this in the beginning experience you may think about incomprehensive as well as scary.
Whenever you get to your own location, likely be operational as well as attempt to observe the very first impressions—write all of them lower if you need to. (A laptop is definitely an important item for any journey digital photographer. ) Whenever you visit a location with regard to the very first time in the airplane eye-port, or even whenever you generate close to the flex as well as presently there it's, or even since the deliver nears a few faraway island—how would you really feel? Exactly where perform your own eye proceed very first? Exactly what would you discover concerning the location immediately? The odor? Heat or even chilly? Scorching sunshine? Unexplainable haze? A specific creating or even landscape? The way in which individuals proceed? Their own gown? What ever it's, keep in mind this. Very first thoughts tend to be priceless sets off in order to innovative meaning, as well as through description aren't repeatable. You have observed the area within photos, you have find out about this. Right now you are presently there, as well as all of your sensory faculties may participate.
Escape presently there. The only method to find out the actual tempo associated with existence inside a location, and thus determine things to take, would be to encounter this. Numerous locations, especially warm types, tend to be energetic really earlier each morning as well as past due within the morning but instead inside a lull close to midday. Wake up earlier, remain away past due. If you're on the visit that's planned in order to depart the actual resort or even deliver from 9: 00, wake up ahead of when beginning. Stroll close to prior to conference upward together with your buddies. When the visit dates back towards the resort or even deliver with regard to lunch time, do not opt for all of them. Instead of consider the actual coach back again at the conclusion of the morning visit, hold off till following setting sun after which have a taxi cab. Make use of any kind of free time to obtain away to check out pictures. Apart from availing your self associated with much more possibilities, period invested finding the area may improve your own encounter.
Obtain dropped. Stroll lower walkways. Sit down within cafés watching existence go by. Do not consume in which the vacationers perform, however exactly where the thing is local people. Simply trigger lower the road and find out exactly where this prospects. Browse around the actual bends, within the increases. Move away from the actual group. We discover that basically meander from the actual vacationers as well as visitor websites, from what's as well acquainted as well as comfy, it is easier in order to adjust to the actual tempo of the location, and also to become more observant.
Also have your own digital camera along with you as well as keep your own eye open up. Serendipity performs a good significantly essential part within journey pictures. You won't ever understand what you will encounter, as well as you need to be prepared. Often you will notice exactly what is actually a great picture however choose how the gentle isn't correct, or even you will find absolutely no individuals close to, or even as well many—something which means you'll have to return later on. However occasionally you receive fortunate. One happens in order to come across the picture from the perfect second. Should you didn't remember your own digital camera, tend to be from movie, or even your own electronic greeting card is actually complete, if you need to fumble close to obtaining the correct zoom lens upon, as soon as might be eliminated before you recuperate. This really is accurate regardless of whether you do road pictures or even going to an all natural or even man-made website. Mountain tops, trees and shrubs, ancient monuments, along with other static topics tend to be, obviously, not really likely to proceed anyplace, however the beam associated with sunlight, the actual leaping bald eagle, or even the actual adopting few which include the actual required component for your picture tend to be not likely to hold close to. Think about this because hunting—whenever a person depart the actual limits of the camping, you ought to be prepared as well as in a position to catch what ever appears.
Help to make period with regard to pictures. Such as performing something nicely, producing great pictures takes a dedication associated with time and effort. 1 issue along with high of contemporary journey is actually how the times tend to be chockablock filled with planned excursions, occasions, as well as foods. The outings are often associated with restricted period, as well as all of us normally wish to observe as numerous websites as you possibly can. The actual itineraries hardly ever depart space with regard to severe pictures. You need to help to make period. It might help make pictures the planned a part of every single day, which means you understand you've time as well as defintely won't be enticed to obtain laid back as well as state, "I'll get it done the next day. inch It may rainfall the next day. Do not waste time.
Whenever vacationing, you likely will experience a variety of circumstances as well as topics. This involves becoming a jack-of-all-trades—you require every single child picture pictures, scenery, as well as every thing between.
Most importantly, function the actual circumstances more than. In no way accept your own very first look at of the location or even the very first body a person click. It certainly is possible—and generally likely—that you are able to develop some thing much better. The reason why otherwise might artists help to make drawings? Obtain nearer, after that obtain nearer nevertheless. Attempt various perspectives, various contacts. Await the actual gentle, await the actual group, await the chicken in order to property about the sapling department. In no way end up being in a rush to obtain elsewhere. Inform your self which there is nothing much more essential compared to obtaining the greatest you will get from the scenario you're within. Once you have worn out each and every likelihood you are able to think about, you can begin focusing on the following 1.
Scenery are available in just about all forms—mountains, jungles, flatlands, deserts, swamps, ponds, streams, seacoasts. Every offers its features, as well as person websites inside every class possess their very own as well. The actual Great Tetons don't seem like the actual Andes—the Earth Water differs in the Mississippi.
What ever type of scenery you're capturing, consider exactly what the fundamental characteristics are—and not only the actual visible types; consider the way the location enables you to really feel, what type of feelings this stirs within a person. After that search for methods for getting individuals characteristics as well as emotions on to movie. Could it be the rugged, strongly wave-washed coastline or perhaps a vibrant as well as exotic 1? Whether it's the actual previous, you need to display surf crashes from the shoreline, most likely within raining climate. Azure skies as well as sunshine tend to be more right for the actual second option unless of course you need to display the actual desolation of the vacation resort seaside within winter season.
Metropolitan areas as well as Cities
Such as scenery, every town as well as city offers its appear as well as feel—a special environment, structures, or even skyline; the well-known nearby website; a specific type of meals or even gown. Almost always there is a minumum of one point that's distinctive. Whenever addressing the city or even town, a little town, you must do 3 fundamental points at least: catch a feeling associated with location, that is generally a broad chance which exhibits the actual environment, skyline, or even additional look at that provides a sense for the entire; attractions how the location is actually well-known with regard to; the life span associated with it's occupants. For that cityscapes as well as broad pictures, in addition to for that attractions, it's wise to look at the actual postcard shelves inside your resort reception or even from kiosks. They'll rapidly provide you with a concept associated with in which the greatest sights tend to be as well as what's regarded as well-known sufficient in order to bring about the postcard.
Ancient monuments along with other Structures
When you're taking photos of structures, figurines, or even additional ancient monuments, consider exactly what these people signify before you decide to take. For instance: There is a big sculpture associated with Vulcan outdoors Luton, The state of alabama. You can create a completely good picture associated with him or her sitting on their slope on the sun-drenched day time, however this type of image wouldn't state a great deal regarding that Vulcan is actually. An image on the raining night, along with possibly super within the history, might. Cannons on the historical battlefield may appear much better within haze compared to within vibrant sunshine. Obtain the thought of the topic, after that think about the elements, gentle, position, and so on. which greatest convey this.
Taking photos of Members of the family as well as Buddies
All of us frequently journey along with individuals all of us know—taking a household holiday, for instance, or even riding a bicycle close to Tuscany along with several buddies. All of us very normally wish to get home along with photos of these because mementos from the journey. Make sure to obtain these types of, however remember that you may also make use of people of the loved ones as well as your buddies to create your own additional pictures far better.
When you're producing photos of the buddies, attempt to hit the stability in between an image of these along with a image from the location. A buddy associated with my own as soon as created the close-up family portrait associated with me personally within The far east. This was not an excellent family portrait, however much more essential, this might have been produced in my personal backyard—there had been absolutely nothing from the devote the actual body. Obviously, you might want to take pictures, in order to catch somebody's phrase in a specific second, however frequently you're producing the actual image as a means associated with recording your own discussed encounter. You need to display sufficient of the buddy every single child identify him—that up and down speck within the range might be anyone. However, you do not desire to be therefore near that there are absolutely no framework. In case your buddy may be the main topic, he or she needs to be powerful sufficient in order to pull interest and become identifiable but nonetheless maintain a few feeling associated with exactly where he's.
Taking photos of Other people
It is best to request authorization if you wish to picture somebody, particularly if you're employed in near. Participate all of them before you decide to take out your own digital camera. Discover a minimum of how you can state "hello" as well as "May We create a photograph" within the nearby language—just displaying that you have created just a little work assists. Show all of them exactly what for you to do as well as exactly what it's regarding all of them which created you need to create a image. In the event that contacted within an open up as well as pleasant method, many people is going to be agreeable—many tend to be flattered which somebody indicates a pursuit inside them as well as exactly what these people perform. Within locations exactly where there's lots of Website travel photo and leisure, you might encounter those who are fed up with becoming photographed—many vacationers aren't respectful sufficient in order to request authorization, as well as residents may come in order to really feel mistreated as well as used. The only method in order to conquer this really is to invest period using the individuals or even to visit areas of the area much less visited through vacationers.
In several holiday destinations, individuals might request cash if you wish to picture all of them. Several locations tend to be frantically bad, the ones possess couple of methods for finding money. The cash these people request is generally not significant in order to all of us, however might signify quite a bit for them. The way you cope with these types of circumstances is actually your decision, however keep in mind that each time you purchase the postcard, you're pleased to invest the cash for any image someone else required. Why don't you invest just a little by yourself?
You can't usually request authorization, obviously. If you're capturing the road picture or perhaps a broad chance of the marketplace, you cannot operate as much as everybody and get whether it's OKAY. Generally, individuals don't thoughts this kind of photography—it's only if they are designated they obtain unpleasant. Although not usually. End up being delicate towards the picture inside your viewfinder. In the event that individuals are obtaining anxious, request authorization or even move ahead.
Take advantage of individuals to provide your own pictures existence as well as size. When the fakeness of the specific creating you like, the actual image might be much much better should you display individuals strolling before this. They'll provide this size as well as allow audiences understand what types of individuals reside presently there, that they gown, and so on. A backyard café might be much more fascinating packed along with individuals compared to bare.

Game 8: Leeds United 1 – 1 Derby
20 Word or Less Summary: Another game we dominated, but another game where we conceded a last minute equaliser.
Best Remembered For: The media trying to make this game bigger than it was by calling it a ‘New Rivalry’. Fuck Derby.

Game Week 8

Saturday 28th September 2019
Game 9: Charlton 1 – 0 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: 19 shots. 71% possession. Nothing to show for it. Charlton were 6th at this point…
Best Remembered For: The Kiko Racism incident.

Tuesday 1st October 2019
Game 10: Leeds United 1 – 0 West Brom
20 Word or Less Summary: The first game all season where our opponents (current league leaders) had more possession than us. A very close game.
Best Remembered For: Alioski’s winner (or was it a Bartley OG?)

Game Week 9

Saturday 5th October 2019
Game 11: Millwall 2 – 1 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Berardi red carded early on for nothing. Millwall given a penalty for nothing. And we still almost beat them.
Best Remembered For: Truly awful refereeing.

Game Week 10

Saturday 19th Octobert 2019
Game 12: Leeds United 1 – 0 Birmingham
20 Word or Less Summary: The Centenary Game. An edgy game against a well organised opposition. Not much more to say.
Best Remembered For: KP’s winner.

Tuesday 22nd October 2019
Game 13: Preston 1 – 1 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: After defending for ages, Preston hit us late on for a counter-attack goal. Enter Nketiah with a late equalier.
Best Remembered For: Probably the start of the Bamford hate after he missed many good chances. Thank god for Eddie.

Game Week 11

Saturday 26th October 2019
Game 14: Sheff Wed 0 - 0 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: The cliché ‘Typical Yorkshire Derby’. Leeds had (and squandered) the best chances.

Game Week 12

Saturday 2nd November 2019
Game 15: Leeds United 2 – 0 QPR
20 Word or Less Summary: Roberts’ first start of the season see him net the opener. A late Harrison goal eased any nerves.
Best Remembered For: The start of 7 straight wins.

Game Week 13

Saturday 9th November 2019
Game 16: Leeds United 2 – 1 Blackburn
20 Word or Less Summary: Paddy scores! And then assists Harrison! Another game we bossed from start to finish (minus a corner in the middle).
Best Remembered For: A great Bamford shift.

Game Week 14

Saturday 23rd November 2019
Game 17: Luton 1 – 2 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Who doesn’t love a last minute own goal? Jack Clarke played his only game of the season (71st min sub).
Best Remembered For: A nervy game, despite us dominating.

Tuesday 26th November 2019
Game 18: Reading 0 – 1 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: An 87th minute counter attack headed winner from Harrison sealed all three points.
Best Remembered For: Another game where we were clearly the better team, but couldn’t break them down until they tired late on.

Game Week 15

Saturday 30th November 2019
Game 19: Leeds United 4 – 0 Middlesbrough
20 Word or Less Summary: Finally a game where we create tons of chances and actually bag more than two. We battered them. Fantastic.
Best Remembered For: Klich’s beauty? Woodgate’s post match quotes? The worst Boro team we’ve seen in ages?

Game Week 16

Saturday 7th December 2019
Game 20: Huddersfield 0 – 2 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Another great performance against a demoralised Huddersfield. No sympathy shown though. Smashed ‘em. Should have been more.
Best Remembered For: Alioski’s banger.

Tuesday 10th December 2019
Game 21: Leeds United 2 – 0 Hull City
20 Word or Less Summary: The OG does it again. What a top player he is. Gjanni came off the bench to seal it late on.
Best Remembered For: A scrappy midweek affair, the last of our 7 in a row.

Game Week 17

Saturday 14th December 2019
Game 22: Leeds United 3 – 3 Cardiff City
20 Word or Less Summary: 3 – 0 up. They’re down to 10 men… We don’t do it easy here at Leeds.
Best Remembered For: The start of a mini-wobble. The media loved it.

Game Week 18

Saturday 21st December 2019
Game 23: Fulham 2 – 1 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Fulham looked decent here, although we had more shots/possession. Oh, but they needed to dive to win a penalty...
Best Remembered For: Not much.
Thursday 26th December 2019
Game 24: Leeds United 1 – 1 Preston
20 Word or Less Summary: 70%-30% in possession. We started far too slow and their goal was inevitable. So, however, was our equaliser.
Best Remembered For: Dallas’ late deflected shot.

Game Week 19

Sunday 29th December 2019
Game 25: Birmingham 4 – 5 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Goal. Goal. Aw shit. Fuck. Goal! Fuuuuuck. GOOOOAAAL! FFS! GET THE FUCK IN THERE!!
Best Remembered For: Heart-attacks all around. And Ayling’s goal/celebrations.

Wednesday 1st January 2020
Game 26: West Brom 1 – 1 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: 1-0 after two minutes and dreading the worst, until OG pops up again in the 52nd minute. (Ajayi scored both)
Best Remembered For: A tight affair between the top two. Not much on pitch action. Bamford came on as a sub and changed the game in Leeds’ favour.

** Between these games the media enjoyed a quick wet-dream as we tore Arsenal apart in the FA Cup for 45 minutes, before losing out to a scruffy goal. Meslier impressive on his debut. **

Game Week 20

Saturday 11th January 2020
Game 27: Leeds United 0 – 2 Sheff Wed
20 Word or Less Summary: Normally late goals is how we do things. This was a taste of our own medicine.
Best Remembered For: Nothing. A waste of 90 minutes.

Game Week 21

Saturday 18th January 2020
Game 28: QPR 1 – 0 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: More bad officiating as Wells handled the ball TWICE before scoring. Bamford missed a pen. Pablo hit the post.
Best Remembered For: Shocking refereeing and KP’s red card for a frustrating tackle.

Game Week 22

Tuesday 28th January 2020
Game 29: Leeds United 3 – 2 Millwall
20 Word or Less Summary: Two down and looking demoralised at half-time… but a Paddy brace and Pablo’s deflected shot soon changed that.
Best Remembered For: Bamford’s celebrations

Game Week 23

Saturday 1st February 2020
Game 30: Leeds United 0 – 1 Wigan
20 Word or Less Summary: Usual story in defeat. Most possession (77%), most shots (19)… and we lose to a scrappy Pablo OG.
Best Remembered For: Losing to Wigan again… some fans starting to panic again!

Game Week 24

Saturday 8th February 2020
Game 31: Nottingham Forest 2 – 0 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Forest had 30% possession. We had 1 shot on target.
Best Remembered For: Ayling's post match interview. Boy was almost in tears. Just you wait, Luke, you'll have your moment in a few weeks!

Tuesday 11th February 2020
Game 32: Brentford 1 - 1 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Goalkeeper howlers all around. Casilla let Benrahma score the easiest goal this season, before Raya dropped the ball to Cooper.
Best Remembered For: Two clips that would make Dodgy Goalkeeper DVDs back in the 00s.

Game Week 25

Saturday 15th February 2020
Game 33: Leeds United 1 – 0 Bristol City
20 Word or Less Summary: It’s pinball pandemonium in the box until the ball finally falls to Ayling to take all 3 points.
Best Remembered For: The most intense Leeds have played for a while. Bristol City never had a chance. But still not clinical enough…

Game Week 26

Saturday 22nd February 2020
Game 34: Leeds United 1 – 0 Reading
20 Word or Less Summary: Similar to the previous games in match dynamics. Ultimately, Pablo’s lovely composed finish won the game.
Best Remembered For: Pablo being Pablo.

Wednesday 26th February 2020
Game 35: Middlesbrough 0 – 1 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Boro looked much better than they did earlier in the season, but Klich’s goal on the stroke of halftime sealed it.
Best Remembered For: Another 1-0 Leeds nail biting classic.

Game Week 27

Saturday 29th February 2020
Game 36: Hull City 0 – 4 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Time for Leeds to crank it up. Finally we took some of the chances we were creating and buried the Tigers.
Best Remembered For: That Tyler Roberts team goal. And some weird Ayling celebration.

Game Week 28

Saturday 7th March 2020
Game 37: Leeds United 2 – 0 Huddersfield
20 Word or Less Summary: Apparently Luke Ayling scored in this game. Wonder if it’s any good?
Best Remembered For: Rockstar Luke’s celebration.

** Insert Covid-19 here **

Game Week 29

Sunday 11th June 2020
Game 38: Cardiff 2 – 0 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Two mistakes, two goals. The rest of this was one way traffic hitting a Welsh brick wall.
Best Remembered For: Football being back. Shame about the result.

Game Week 30

Saturday 27th June 2020
Game 39: Leeds United 3 – 0 Fulham
20 Word or Less Summary: An early goal for Paddy, then backs to the wall for the first half. Then, at half time… we threw on Pablo.
Best Remembered For: McClaren’s orgasm at Pablo’s pass to Jack (and his constant bashing of Mitrovic and his flying elbows). The game we really started to believe…

Tuesday 30th June 2020
Game 40: Leeds United 1 – 1 Luton
20 Word or Less Summary: Luton hit us on the counter, but POTY Dallas was there to take a point. Should have had a late penalty awarded. Didn’t.
Best Remembered For: Luton playing 11 behind the ball.

Game Week 31

Saturday 4th July 2020
Game 41: Blackburn 1 – 3 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: An early Paddy goal then a wonder strike from Kalvin before Klich sealed it in the second half. Get in!
Best Remembered For: KP’s freekick.
Thursday 9th July 2020
Game 42: Stoke City 0 – 5 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Five goals. Five different scorers. And it should have been more!
Best Remembered For: The most complete performance of the season?

Game Week 32

Sunday 12th July 2020
Game 43: Swansea 0 – 1 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Pablo’s sweet, sweet revenge. This was the game when we just knew this was going to be our season.

Thursday 16th July 2020
Game 44: Leeds United 1 – 0 Barnsley
20 Word or Less Summary: They battered us. We were awful. If they had anyone who could finish this game would have had a much different scoreline.
Best Remembered For: Paddy’s first half shift, wondering how Barnsley were in a relegation fight and OG scoring again.

** Aaaaand we’re promoted… Aaaaaand we’re fucking champions! **

Game Week 33

Sunday 19th July 2020
Game 45: Derby 1 – 3 Leeds United
20 Word or Less Summary: Time to play the youngsters. And what a performance. Just to top it off, OG scored with a comical finish.
Best Remembered For: Orta’s binocular post match celebration. Guard of (dis)honour. Partying as champions against the team it all went wrong for us last year.

Wednesday 22nd July 2020
Game 46: Leeds United 4 – 0 Charlton
Best Remembered For: Can’t remember a thing. Too drunk celebrating.

Updated: Dates/Weeks added, Fulham's dodgy dive, Centenary Game. Thanks for all comments!

2020.07.17 18:16 _c9s_ Areas without Coronavirus spread (17th July update)

Here's an update to the post I made last week looking at the end of the spectrum we're not talking about so much - where we're not seeing many cases of Coronavirus spreading in the UK.
Orkney and the Western Isles are the only areas that haven't seen any cases in the past month now, with the other areas that were getting close last week mostly having a low number of cases crop up over the week.

Here's a big table of the date of the latest case reported in each local authority/health board, and how many cases they've had in the past two weeks:

Notes for Scotland

Scotland reports data based on local health boards rather than local authorities and with the date they were reported rather than the date the swab was taken. This will result in higher numbers than elsewhere and the latest cases being slightly more recent than the rest of the UK.

Notes for NI

Some parts of NI are reporting negative cases, which is mathematically impossible. I believe is due to the authorities reporting data incorrectly and then correcting it later without updating the historical data.

Ghislaine Maxwell Says She Had No Contact With Epstein in 10 Years. Not True.
Link to article
In the July 10 court filing protesting her confinement to jail for alleged sex trafficking offenses and perjury in relation to Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell’s attorneys claimed “she’d had no contact with Epstein for more than a decade.”
However, court filings from a prior civil case (Giuffre vs. Maxwell, 2015), unsealed last August on the day before Epstein’s death, include a log of email communications between Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein showing they contacted each other between January 6 and January 27, 2015.
Six of these seven email correspondences between Epstein and Maxwell were shielded from disclosure in the case by “common interest” and in one case, when Epstein attorney Alan Dershowitz was included on an email, it was shielded by attorney-client privilege. The email log appears to contradict Maxwell’s claim that she has not been in contact with Epstein for more than 10 years. (An attorney for Maxwell did not respond to requests for comment.)
The first date of these exchanges, January 6, 2015, was three days after the publication of an explosive article in the Daily Mail picturing Prince Andrew with his arm around Epstein victim/survivor Virginia Roberts Giuffre and a smiling Ghislaine Maxwell (labeled as “the madame”) in the background.
Maxwell is alleged in various civil suits to have been an integral part, if not the principal organizer, of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex-trafficking enterprise. While Maxwell’s recent arrest cites allegations of sex-trafficking activity occurring between 1994 and 1997, there are indications that she was present at Epstein’s Palm Beach estate during the 2002-2005 time frame of the alleged criminal activities outlined in his 2019 arrest and indictment—such as Maxwell receiving and leaving phone messages there, as well as the discovery of stationary paper with her name on it, and testimony from a butler that she had an office in the house.
According to Brad Edwards and Brittany Henderson, attorneys for numerous alleged victims of Epstein and Maxwell, when the 2005-06 Palm Beach police investigation of Epstein began, “she [Maxwell] became a ghost. She completely distanced herself from Epstein.” But prior to this, as Edwards and Henderson note in their new book on Epstein, the pair “slept in the same bed and traveled the world together in private planes... they were inseparable for almost two decades.”
For her part, Maxwell claimed to have broken off her romantic relationship with Epstein much earlier, in 2000. (In a recent court filing in the Virgin Islands against his estate, Maxwell claimed she worked for Epstein and/or his companies until 2006). In a 2007 character reference, sent by Epstein’s lawyers to support his bid in getting what one Florida prosecutor called “the deal of the century,” Epstein’s attorneys claimed that Epstein’s relationship with Maxwell “ended amicably around 2000.” They explained in the letter that Epstein’s need for frequent travel and his work arrangements “precluded a good married life with children” to explain why Maxwell and Epstein ended their relationship.
When Epstein’s Florida criminal case was hanging in the balance, Ghislaine wrote the following about Jeffrey Epstein:
My experience of Jeffrey, is of a thoughtful, kind, generous loving man, with a keen sense of humour and ready smile—a man of principles and values and a man of his word. If he made a promise, he would always follow through. In fact, I never saw him break a promise. He is disciplined in business and conscientious. A man always quick to help someone who is down, or to offer an opportunity to someone to pursue a dream or goal.
After their breakup, Maxwell claims to have continued on in 2001 as an employee of Epstein’s—she is listed aboard 84 flights on Epstein’s aircraft in 2001, and aboard 67 flights in 2002, but this dropped to 14 flights by 2006.
One particular flight included Epstein, Maxwell, Emmy Tayler, and Virginia Giuffre (then Roberts) on March 9, 2001. This flight landed at London’s Luton airport the night before Giuffre, then a 17-year-old girl from Florida, was allegedly trafficked to Prince Andrew. (Andrew and Maxwell have denied these claims.)
Flight logs kept by Epstein pilot David Rodgers show Maxwell regularly traveled on Epstein’s planes all the way through 2007 when Epstein’s pilots stopped writing down the names of his passengers in February of that year. This past weekend the Mail on Sunday published an article citing Maxwell’s claim she did not see Epstein in person after 2005. However, logs from Epstein’s pilots indicate Maxwell flew to Paris on Epstein’s Boeing 727 on his 54th birthday in 2007.
In a 2016 deposition, Sigrid McCawley, an attorney for Epstein and Maxwell’s alleged victims, asked Maxwell if she ever saw a girl under age 18 at Jeffrey Epstein’s home that was not the child of a friend. Maxwell said, “Again, I can’t testify to that because I have no idea what you are talking about.” When asked if Maxwell hired girls to perform sexual massages, Maxwell said, “I don’t hire girls like that,” and McCawley asked Maxwell to specify what she meant by “girls like that.” Maxwell responded, in part, “You are asking if I hired somebody to do what, I don’t know what you are talking about.” Later in the deposition, in an apparent moment of frustration, Maxwell began banging on the table for which she later apologized.
Yet the current charges in her July 2020 indictment appear to begin with Maxwell recruiting a 14-year-old Jane Doe from Michigan’s Interlochen music camp in 1994, once attended by Epstein when he was a teenager. In the years to follow, according to one victim/survivor, Maxwell would even prowl Central Park looking for young girls to recruit for Epstein’s abuse.
Maxwell has filed that she “vigorously denies the charges, intends to fight them, and is entitled to the presumption of innocence” and her attorneys have stated on the record that they believe the government’s criminal case is “meritless.”
Maxwell’s bail hearing is set for Tuesday, July 14.
