    Right then lets do this! Despite stumbling on a tough string of fixtures and a relentless Fulham team (23 games unbeaten?) snapping at their heels, Warnock's City team has refused to bite the bullet and collapse. Having done arguably the hard part on the weekend at Hull, this Sunday they will have the chance to pull off a stunning (and slightly unexpected) promotion with a victory at home to Reading. Three points will secure 2nd place, in front of a sell out crowd, regardless of what Fulham get up to at St Andrews. An absolutely blockbuster fixture and potentially one for the history books!

    A massive amount of praise has to go the mastermind behind it all - Neil Warnock - who probably has more ambition in his little toe than Slade had in his entire body <laugh>

    C'mon City!

    And finally, there is more riding on City than this year's BPPL final day <laugh> -

    Division I
    • After missing out on the title on the final stretch last season, @william5551 finds himself presented with the opposite final day scenario this time out. For @Rumney Bluebird, a final day CS is most likely needed if he is to make a final grab for the BPPL title - and he knows that both the CS tally and BP are in his favor - so maybe this isn't as finished as it looks.
    • A big CS for @ccfcremotesupport on Saturday eased any relegation fears and mean that he is on for his highest finish since 2013. @bluescull has a had a solid season since last years promotion and will finish in the T4.
    • If @BluefromBridgend & @Barry Tiger finish level (with identical scores) it will go to count back - who had a CS last <laugh>
    • The last relegation place will by one of three it would appear. Despite being currently set to go down @ninian opinion is the only one who will get a BP, which could be crucial. Myself and @taffthefish are only separated on CS but it looks like that even the point for the goal scorer will make a difference. A CS for any of the three pretty much guarantees safety.
    Division II
    • Still little separates @danablu, @whiffletree & @Sayer77 meaning that promotion and the Div II title will go down to the final predictions. @whiffletree will receive a BP and has the higher CS tally so is a slight favorite but this could still go either way.
    • A record breaking 4th playoff campaign beckons for @Oldsparkey and a final chance to break his CS record of 3 in a season <ok>
    • @FrankfurterBlue & @Dai Jones have edged away from @Masky but the battle for the Playoff is far from finished. A big score for any of the trio will mean a potential shot at promotion but one will miss out <wah>
    • @blueturk the cat & @isawronnymoorescore are a long way adrift - but who cares if City achieve their hard fought promotion to the top flight.
    Feedback

    As ever people feedback to improve the Blue Prophet Prediction League is most welcome - especially regarding this years new scoring system <cracker>

    And lastly thanks for predicting this season - lets roar the lads to promotion on Sunday!

    We owe Reading for the drubbing they gave us in the play offs a few years ago.

    3.0 to us. Big Ken to finish the season on a high note with at least one goal.

    Anyone fancy predicting the Birmingham/Fulham score? Against the run of play I say 2.1 to Brum!!!

    Cheers Sheepy, a brilliant job all season. Long may you continue. <applause>

    Mr Sheep, you have been a stalwart provider of good fun for years now and long may you continue. Very many thanks. Only one change: anyone with a long name beginning with F should be given extra bonus points and preferential promotion with two others being given the opportunity to join in promotion based upon points.
    I go with a 2 nil win for us and Mr Morrison to bag one from a free kick.

    Perhaps we can enjoy a few more posts on other threads from you next season Pete? :emoticon-0105-wink:

    You were quite prolific on the old Beeb 606 and I enjoyed your input - anything up with this site we could improve to encourage you?

    Hopefully my writers block will have disappeared by next season Spark, and normal service will be resumed. ✔️

    Morrison to stuff his old club after the stick they gave him up there when he went off injured. That was the start of our poor run at Christmas.

    Thank you Sheepy - although it isn't all over yet mate is it?
