2021/22 Prediction League; Game 1 v Lincoln City (away)

Lincoln City

v

Accrington Stanley


2021/22 Prediction League Game 19; v The Gargoyles (away)


I'm depressed ........... I suspect we're all depressed ........ 16 goals conceded in our last four games .......... two points from our last possible 15 and we're hurtling into GreasyPole Land ....... However, through a contact, and since we went for a Burton, I've communed with the Voodoo Gods of Football about Saturday's game (I know you shouldn't, but I don't care!), and I can tell you we're going to lose, but only by 9-1 .....

Mwwahahahaha!

Forget PNE 26 Hyde United 0, Australia 31 American Samoa 0, Arbroath 36 Bon Accord 0, or even - from a couple of weeks back - Peterborough Rangers 40 Somebody's 8-man Reserve Team 0 .......... I present to you instead, from the Madagasay League, and played on 31 October 2002 in Antananarivo, Madagascar, the game which holds the world record for the highest score-line, recognized by The Guinness Book of Records, in the final round of an 11-day, four team Round Robin to determine the Championship, Stade Olympique l'Emyrne (SOE) against AS ADEMAnalamanga ......

As background, SOE had won the title the year before, but as a result of a late and disputed penalty in their penultimate game of the Round Robin, SOE couldn't win this particular year ............... SOE decided to protest (the coach "had words" - probably French Ones, but maybe in Malagasy - with the referee, to no avail ......... come the "dead rubber", SOE were, early on, further incensed (nay, incandescent) after a refereeing decision given against them, and the time for Meaningful Action had arrived

From that point in the game it's recorded that none of the AS Adema players touched the ball again until the final whistle ....... every time SOE kicked off, one of their players kicked the ball into their own net, and eventually this rather one-sided contest finished with a score line of SO l'Emyrne 0 AS Adema 149 ...

The Madagascan Football Authorities also took Meaningful Action. Following the match, the Malagasy Football Federation (MFF) suspended the SOE coach, Zaka Be, for three years, and four of the team's players – defender Mamisoa Razafindrakoto (the captain of the Madagascar national football team the "Scorpions"), SOE captain Manitranirina Andrianiaina, player Nicolas Rakotoarimanana and goalkeeper Dominique Rakotonandrasana – were suspended until the end of the season, and banned from visiting stadiums for the same period. All other players from both teams received a warning and a threat of more serious action should they commit further offenses. The referee wasn't punished ("Come on, lads, this is getting silly"), as the situation was deemed to be out of his control, while Madagascar's sports ministry proceeded to dissolve the MFF, which was later reconstituted.

And who remembers the Wallace Brothers at Southampton back in the 80s? Danny, Ray and Rod Wallace all played for the Club at The Dell, and in October 1988 they all featured for the Saints in the same match ........ that's not as unusual, world-wide, as you might think, and the last team in the Football League to feature three siblings in the same game was Middlesbrough's Carr Brothers ....but - Starter for Ten - how many years was it between the Carrs of Middlesbrough and the Wallaces of Soton gracing their respective clubs?

By the way, three related people in one side isn't a record either:

"In the early 90s, former Norway and Chelsea forward Tore Andre Flo played alongside his brothers Jostein and Jarle for Sogndal in the Norwegian Premier Division. As if that wasn't enough, their cousin Håvard was also a key member of the side. Jostein (Sheffield United) and Håvard (Werder Bremen/Wolves) both played professionally abroad, and were both, with Tore Andre, members of Norway's 1998 World Cup squad. All three played in the legendary (well, from a Norwegian viewpoint, anyway) 2-1 defeat of Brazil in Marseille. And, to top it all, in 1985 Jostein, the eldest of the siblings, played for hometown club Stryn in a cup game against Bryne, in which all the players in Stryn's first XI were blood relatives and went by the last name of Flo."

Tore Andre, however, is reportedly the only Flo who has taken part in the Norwegian version of Strictly Come Dancing.

Managed by Michael Appleton and sponsored as to ground naming rights, they play these days not at Sincil Bank, but at the LNER Stadium, leaving the fans' current "Chanson de Choix" as:-

"The railroad comes through the middle of the house
The railroad comes through the middle of the house
The trains all come through the middle of the house
Since the company bought the land.
They let us live in the front of the house
They let us live in the back
But there ain't no living in the middle of the house
Cause that's the railroad track"


Second Starter for Ten: who sang the song in the UK in 1956, taking it into the charts, and for what Radio Show was she also famous?

Founded in 1884, The Imps found themselves in the Conference by 1987. They regained their Football League status with the Conference title in 1987–88, and were promoted again in 1997–98, but relegated the next season. They reached the play-offs in five consecutive seasons, from 2002 to 2007, losing in the final twice (2002–03 and 2004–05) and the semi-finals three times, which is a competition record. However they exited the division at the other end when they were returned to the Conference after relegation at the end of the 2010–11 campaign. A six-season stay in non-league was ended when Cowley brothers Nicky and Danny led the club to the National League title in 2016–17, as well as a run to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup – which made them the first non-league side to reach that stage in 103 years. They won the EFL Trophy in 2018 and the League Two title in 2018–19.

Last season they made the playoffs, finishing fifth with 77 points, but despite putting Slumberland to the Sword in the semis (3-2) they foundered on the Rock of Blackpool in the Final 2-1 ...(Gerrit? Rock? Of Blackpool? Oh suit yourselves). Six departed in the aftermath of that defeat- CMF Jorge Grant to The Posh, RW Harry Anderson to Brizzle, GK Ethan Ross to Stockpot, LW Zack Elbouzedi to AIK, CMF James Jones to HollywoodWrexham, and Tayo Edun to Blackburn (AND they got money for four of them!)

Six came in, including RW Chris Maguire from Sunderland, Dane Lasse Sorensen from Stoke and MF Teddy Bishop from Ipswich ...... They've had a "Curate's Egg" season so far - 5 wins, 6 draws and seven losses - and strangely they haven't won consecutive League games all season - there's always been at east two games between any two of their victories ....... wins against Fleetwood (2-1), Cambridge (5-1 away), Burton (2-1 away), Charlton (2-1 at home) and Wigan (2-1 away) .......... One win, three draws and two defeats in their last six, scoring four and conceding six ......... at home, it's W2 D3 L4, away it's W3 D3 L3, 20 scored in 18 games, giving them 21 points and 16th place, whereas our 21 points gives us 17th place (because we keep letting in shed-loads of stupid goals)

Deadline for entries is, as always, scheduled kick -off time, which is 3.00pm on Saturday 27th November ........ next week they play Hartlepool in the FA Cup Round Two, having seen off Bowers and Pitsea (who I think are a firm who manufacture biscuits) by the odd goal in one ............ two draws between us last season (a Desmond and a Goalless Desmond), and Last One To Score This Week's a Banana!

And the Carrs of Middlesborough played together in 1920 - 68 years before the Wallaces ......

And "The Railroad Comes through the Middle of the House" is best known in the UK in the version by Alma Cogan, a big star of the 1950s (known as "The Girl with the Giggle in Her Voice", who died at the age of 34 in the mid 60s, and who was also famous for playing Ma Glum in the radio version of "Take it From Here", alongside Jimmy Edwards as the drunken wastrel "Pa", the glorious June Whitfield as "Eth", and Australian radio star Dick Bentley (who was actually older than Jimmy Edwards) as the terminally stupid "Ron", his son ..

My favourite scene that never got broadcast featured Ron and Eth on the first night of their honeymoon; Ron's about to get ready in the bathroom, and Eth's examining her wedding Nightie and Neglegiggle ......

"I'm going to get ready now, Eth; you're not to look"

"Ho look Ron, it's all pink and crinkly"

"I told you not to look, Eth"

Good luck to everyone! ............. Keep the Faith! ............ And thanks for playing!

COYR!

Well, this is a first for me and it might be a P.L. first also

It was mentioned on the Burton thread that Stanley were 'lucky' to get NIL

Taking in all factors:-

Stanley -2 V 5 Imps.
