Strange definition of banter? - more like 'Theatre of the Absurd'!

Got to agree with batty

Yes he’s a cretin and talks utter rubbish.

But still should be allowed to post, to highlight his utterly wrong opinions.

Same goes for Lowfields 👍

Anyhoo I don't see things as bleakly as Lowfields because what seems to have been lost while we worry about Ipswich and Southampton is the complete self combustion by Leicester... 3 straight defeats with 3 very tricky away games next their wheels are well and truly
coming off the bus.

Remarkably from a position of virtual guaranteed promotion Leicester are managing to implode and I think if we win all of our homes and draw all our away games giving us 96 points that will comfortably secure us an automatic promotion spot.

We've had a blip today but nothing in my mind suggests we won't be celebrating our return to the EPL next season.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Are you 4 real - If Ipswich keep winning, they go up, as they are 2 points ahead of us. Nothing is guaranteed that we are going up.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes I'm very real... are you????
Nothing but doom and gloom and doubt and catastrophic predictions that because we drew today, we didn't lose and Ipswich won with a very very lucky deflected O. G. that turned the match their way you've decided with 11 games to go that Leeds aren't going to get in the top 2 because Ipswich are going to win every game from now on in.... that's some prediction that!

If that happens then okay I'll doth my cap to you Sir but I'd imagine we'd be pretty close behind them and with Leicester dropping points left right and centre I'd wager we'll have enough points to finish in 2nd.

Look it's pretty obvious there are going to be further twists and turns so to throw the towel in now with 11 games to go like Lowfields has and give us no hope of achieving automatic promotion is extremely pessimistic and creates nothing but negative vibes so if that's your thing then so be it but I prefer a more positive approach.

Why are people biting at Lowfields. These predictions from him are very reassuring. Never known anyone be as reliably wrong all the time.

Last time we were in this division he was calling us all idiots for not believing him that we wouldn’t even finish top 6. Still tried to claim he was right when we won the league by 10 points.

And he doesn’t acknowledge bets after he’s lost so don’t worry about him being forced off the board.

I gave him 100/1 for us to miss out on top 6 and he wouldn’t even give the tenner he bet to charity.

I will start to to worry when Lowfields thinks we are going up because it’s become evident that Newton had a fourth law ‘lowfields will never make a correct prediction related to football’

Keep the thread going until end of season. Been good to have all the other teams' result related stuff in one place.
