  1. This is from this time last year: Hang on to your three special cards until you have a really good reason for playing one. They were introduced last season and I suspect that many of us could have used them better. Late on last season I racked up 140 points one week and I still had another 40 points on the bench but I had played my Bench Boost card earlier in the season.
  2. Spot the ultimate irony 50 seconds in to this 5live feature on BHS.
  3. Rob has found some time to give us some attention and things should start happening soon. This thread is on his to-do list.
  4. "Promoted to the Premier League, Middlesbrough are following Lille defensive midfielder Ibrahim Amadou (23 years, under contract until 2019 ). Eseentially, LOSC is not a seller, unless they get a big offer for a player bought for €2m from Nancy last summer."
  5. I have just watched the first episode of "Fleabag" on BBC iPlayer. It's a sort of updated "Briget Jones" so it won't be to everyone's taste but I'm liking it muchly and it's got the wonderful Olivia Colman and Bill Paterson in support.
  6. See this thread's opening post: just announce your squad's name in here and I'll PM you the code.
  7. Yeah but apart from winning the world cup what did Alf Ramsey ever do for England?
  8. It's the silly season! That's a really interesting expression on his face but what is Aitor thinking and who is he thinking it about?
  9. Please clear some space in your inbox and don't forget to clear out any trash via the "Empty Folders" button.
  10. I paid a visit to my GP the other morning and I was his first patient. Actually, he was late for our appointment so I was able to see that he had to summon someone from reception to log him on at his computer while he introduced me to the trainee he wanted to sit in on proceedings. Then, during the consultation, I spotted how he was using the mouse to take him from field to field on his terminal, giving away totally that he has never had a moment's computer tuition in his life. Unbelievable! What really got me, however, was when he got his young sidekick to take over at the terminal and he
  11. Welcome back to the fray boroinbishop and welcome aboard Brunners. Yes, it's so that we all know who runs which team - you can't tell that from the competition membership list alone.
  12. This thread's opening post has been updated with details of the enrolment procedure. I'm waiting to hear from wilsoncgp before adding instructions for the paid competition.
  13. I wish you all the luck in the world with this, gilburtgtr. :)
  14. Done. :) Will shortly be moving this thread to the top of the page, out of the way of the real football business.
  15. At the risk of further crossed wires, if you agree, I'll merge this thread with the traditional one.
  16. wilsoncgp I have soft-deleted your two most recent posts but don't worry, they can be reinstated later if necessary. It looks like I was working on the clarification while you were ploughing ahead so I'll let you catch up on my post and we'll decide what to do after that, if that's okay.
  17. First of all, sorry about the confusion over competitions. We'll be starting a "oneBoro Forum" mini-league in the Premier League competition as soon as they become available. In the meantime why not head on over to the official fantasy football game of the Premier League and start building your squad? Old hands note that your existing account will still be active for the new season and I'll send you the oneBoro mini-league code in due course, via PM. If you are new to the competition, you will need to enrol at the PL site and create your squad. Then post your squad name here, in thi
  18. It's been stable during the interval so fingers crossed...
  19. This league is in the Sky competition. The official Prem competition isn't under way yet but I'll be creating our customary oneBoro league when it is. There's nothing to stop anyone doing both, though.
  20. There's really no need. Plenty of us don't, so welcome to the forum whichever way you do it. Not so sure about Swansea, though, or even, on second thoughts, all the ways you might do it but welcome aboard anyway, Borofornia! :)
  21. Sky's confirmation of the Ramirez signing says very clearly that it is subject to a work permit.
  22. Reportedly seeking asylum in Germany now.
  23. Army claim to be in control and say that police guarding the president have been disarmed. Would have preferred to see him deposed democratically but if Erdogan has gone then bloody good riddance!
