    A little pre, pre season game for us to play

    Post by MadAmster on Thu 21 Jun 2018, 10:11 am

    Let's have a look at who's a pessimist, who's a realist and who is stark staring bonkers.

    Quite a simple game really. Based on nothing more than history and the current squads, as not many teams have dipped their feet into the transfer waters yet. How many points do you think we will get in the 2018/2019 season?

    Only entries posted up to and including June 30th 2018 will be accepted

    Go on give it a go. I will start us off and cut and paste everybody's guess into this post so we can monitor it easier. I originally got to the mid 90s and decided that such a figure was raving loony level even for an eternal optimist like me

    I looked at the games where we dropped silly points last season and thought an extra 10 points are there to be played for so it's 85 points for me.

    Love the fact we have taken a gamble with Frank.
    Unfortunately it’s DCFC and I am a natural born pessimist so I’m going to say 70 pts.

    I was going tl say 87 points, but Whetstone got his hands on that one. I was robbed, I tell you.

    OK, so 93. Why the hell not, which is how Mel decided to appoint Frankie boy!
