Afficionados of the game will sagely nod at today’s picture showing Eric Webber challenging for a header in the 1952 home fixture for Torquay United v. Leyton Orient.
Devonian football has been in the doldrums ever since (except for that splendid 0-0 draw for Exeter v. Man Utd in the FA Cup a few seasons back), but this hasn’t stopped brand new footballpredictionleague player, Jeremy, suggesting I put £2 on them this season!
“Quite obviously you might just as well close the competition now and bow
to my superior knowledge!”, said Jeremy in his email to footballpredictionleague. I could be cruel and point out that a chap who really knows football ought to know that Watford will finish higher than 20th for Hornets sake!
I suspect though that Jeremy is actually a bookmaker in real-life since despite suggesting I stick a couple of golden ones on Torquay, he’s not actually predicting a 1-2 finish for them himself!
5 days to go until the last of the entry forms have to be in – 6 days until the first footballpredictionleague tables are churned out. How very exciting!
