With regard to my posting immediately before this one I refer to using a word. The word appears in the posting as 'rubbish'.

Just to clarify, I did not type or use the word 'rubbish'. I was a bit more colloquial than that!.

Hopefully you can all guess the actual word that I used.

Seems like there is some form of censorship in place - shame

Good heavens Jack. I’ve been ignoring my backyard chicken’s egg boxes for weeks now and you’ve gone and said it !
In all seriousness though, it is hard to argue against all you say.
Especially how important point difference could have been. I would not be confident of a win at Fev, I am more comfortable should we be at the LSV.
First game was in 1967, and have been hooked since day 1. Now live in Vancouver, Canada but follow our team any way I can.

To Chayders:

Infamous Prediction League? Maybe but only if there were to be a quorum of tipsters - many of the previous contestants are conspicuous by their absence from these threads.

Went on the less verbose Superleigh Predictor last night (sporadically remember to do so). Today's prediction 10-54. It's a little cooler today and I'm guessing there'll be water breaks around the 20 minute mark in each half. It happened in the Brentford v Utd match yesterday (first half watched in The Egerton with Oirish Mick - and very potty-mouthed he was!)

To Jack:

Had you been around at the time and read the prediction league thread, you'd already know all about automated moderation. Once used the original Danish spelling of the king we dub Canute. It was, when posted, auto-moderated to "Spiffing Chap".

One poster used to add a letter I to the word that you tried to use and the resultant branch of Islam slipped past AM. However, bearing in mind what recently befell Salman Rushdie, Bongser would not advocate doing things that way.

Instead take a word from Oirish Mick's potty - "shoite" is fine!

Well, that’s the thousand up. So far ‘planes have not been dropping Icarus like from the sky. We wait under the sword of Damocles (and in Bongser's case under the kitchen table) until the league tables update just before 5pm. :wink:

While I agree that Leigh are not guaranteed promotion (just remember the Catalans millionaire game at the LSV, when we were odds on favourites), why is everyone assuming it will be Featherstone in the final? Their form of the last month does not indicate they will get past Halifax who are their most likely opponents in the semi final, and should have won the league game at Fev. earlier this season.

I think it could be either Fax or Barrow and that's not saying that we couldn't slip up.
How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive?

Agreed that it may not be Fev (or even us though far more likely).
I fancy Fax, Barrow and Batley at their best, could get a win over Fev.

I personally think Batley seem spent now.

Fev themselves, by all reports, seem to be getting their heads back in the game, maybe this the Brian McD storm in form to a final.

This weekend seeing Fev travel to Barrow will be an interesting one to mull over.

There is a definite change of tune coming out of a certain pit village in West Yorkshire at the moment.

Fan's of that village's rugby club are getting a lot chirpier all of a sudden. They are beginning to believe that fortune, and by implication, prospects of success against Leigh in a play off final are improving..

They believe that they are suddenly playing better and that key players who have been out injured are gradually returning to fitness at just the right time in the season. In Ford, they believe that they have at last found the maverick half back to unlock Leigh's normally watertight defence. They are also expressing the view that they think that Leigh have peaked too soon form wise.

For my money there will be two things in particular to look out for in their game against Barrow at the weekend which, for me, will confirm or deny Yorkie grounds for optimism.

Firstly, the result. Barrow are good and dangerous opponents and are playing at home. It will be a good result for Fev if they win.

Secondly, the number of points that they concede. Barrow are a threat in attack so it will be a real test of whether Fev's season long defensive shortcomings have finally been fixed.

If Barrow win and/or Fev concede more than 20 points then I think that the perceived remarkable turnaround in form and prospects is just another false dawn.

Conversely, a win for Fev and a virtual shut out in defence and then they might, just might, be on course to give us more of a game, if both teams compete the play-off final.
