[Don’t worry, I’m keeping tabs : I’ve got 128 of these club write ups to complete – at three to four a week, I should have ’em rattled off by the end of the season].
I was talking to Ade earlier today and he rightly berated me for not updating the website. He noted that he’d written twice in a row and had managed to share a top football betting tip. [Jeremy the Torquay fan take note : spend £2 on Lewes!]
And so I offer you the Preston sheep, proudly looking westwards with his hoof on the shaft of a proud flag. Yup, came as shock to me too. It’s certainly thought provoking. Acutally, the only thought it provokes really is : How is a sheep holding a flag supposed to represent Preston?
[I mean … I can understand it representing Cardiff, Swansea, Carlisle or even Derby].
But how do you, the FPL cognescenti, feel that Preston will do this year? Will Billy ‘The Goat’ Davies be missed? Are they playoff material again or will Paul ‘The biting badger’ Simpson take them all the way to the hallowed grazing grounds of the Premiership.
Seems you lot are rather undecided! I run these graphs out of idle curiousity sometimes (it also helps for my trips to the bookies) and it’s rare to see a club predicted to finish in nearly every available position! (Every position covered except 21st, oddly). A rather mixed bag of results it seems then – possibly promoted as champions, possibly relegated as the worst team in the league, more than likely finishing outside of the playoffs. 2 games played and they’re in 19th – make of that what you will.
JP says : don’t bet on ’em to finish anywhere. Hell, with these results, don’t bet on ’em to finish at all. 14th.
