  1. So, assuming we get 2nd and we lose to Denmark, we will be on the same points as just now (14) for the seeding rankings as the points against Moldiva won't count. Can't be arsed checking the points gained against the lowest ranked teams in the other 6 team groups or who has still to play who, so you may be right about needing to get a point against Denmark to ensure seeding. To be fair though, there really isn't any other playoff team we could be "sure" of beating, so we just need to take who we get, seeded or otherwise, and get on with it.
  2. Maybe it's a trick question. [emoji2957]
  3. Was reading a thing on Sunday about this. As you say, we will probably be seeded. There are also two teams from the Nations League thingy that go into the playoffs and one if them is likely to be Austria (apparently). The seeding is done on the group performance. Chances are we will still be against teams that are ranked higher than us, though. This is from wiki: Play-off stage: The 10 group runners-up would be joined by the best 2 Nations League group winners, based on the Nations League overall ranking, that finished outside the top two of their qualifying group. These 12 teams will be drawn into three play-off paths, playing two rounds of single-match play-offs (semi-finals and finals, with the home teams to be drawn), with the 3 path winners qualifying for the World Cup.
  4. Only if we put out the same team that you first saw.
  5. Sorry, I can't afford a whole Dutch football club as home security. Pool cue it is then.
  6. It would be the Royal Mail "sorting office" doing the mail sorting, not SMFC. How do you work out it would be steady after a week? If more mail is arriving than being delivered it's only going to get worse. Again, this is Royal Mail, not SMFC. Assuming the mail is delivered in (approximately) the order it arrives (that may be wrong but probably not) then it doesn't matter if there is only a trIckle of mail coming from SMFC if, when it arrives at the sorting office, there is already about a week's worth of mail ahead of it.
  7. You've lost me there. Not sure if you're saying that there is only a trickle of mail through Underwood Road or whether the mail from SMFC would only be a trickle. The former is obviously not true and the latter is irrelevant if the sorting office is already backed up.
  8. There was a news article the other day about staff shortages at Underwood Road, due to the number of staff isolating, resulting in it taking up to a week to deliver some mail and all deliveries being cancelled some days so the staff could concentrate on sorting.
  9. I was going to say something like that but I seem to remember you saying you never had kids. Did you just skip the kids and go straight to grandkids?
  10. Wonderful news, I'll be sure to use them 40 odd years ago. Thanks.
  11. Oh well, there's another one arrived then. They are more interesting than some posters on here, right enough. Sent from my SM-A415F using Tapatalk
  12. But it's a mini, you just need a couple of spare AAA batteries and you're off again. See, YOU obviously have no idea what you're talking about. [emoji848] Sent from my SM-A415F using Tapatalk
  13. Aye, but it is really, isn't it? Sent from my SM-A415F using Tapatalk
  14. Choosing lines from a character who gets killed for having "ideas above his station" might not be the best way of making an impression. Just saying.
  15. Some might say that if they can afford £12 (or any amount) to attend a football match then they are getting too much in benefits.
  16. I still find it strange the Brian Gallagher scored a hatrick in a European game.

    All the same old jokes a gin a gin and a gin.
  18. He has played and scored 4 goals.
  19. Well, considering posting anything constitutes going "out of your way" from something else then ... whatever. Let's take this latest example, you mentioned him, I essentially pointed out that you were attracting his attention and he thinks, due to that, I want to engage with him. I usually mention that I have him on ignore after I have received a few notifications that he has replied to my posts - some of which have nothing to do with him. This is in an attempt to get him to stop and, funnily enough, it usually works for a short while. It doesn't stop him mentioning me (and you and antrin and ...) in his rants, though. You know, the ones where everyone else that has ever disagreed with him is always wrong. As I mentioned above, it all goes back to me trying to be helpful when he was arguing the negative in a disagreement and then forgot to put the word "not" in his post and essentially posted an argument for the positive. The weird thing is that I was also arguing the negative in that thread and pointed out his error to be helpful, only to be turned into his (at that point) latest nemesis. After that, every time I was on the other side of an argument to him, I was being pedantic and/or just disagreeing because it was him. Of course, he'll try and twist it or totally deny it and it will all be my fault - you know, his usual. I really hope, for his sake, that this is just an online persona and not how he lives his life in the real world. Anyway, enough of this, not doubt he'll reply, probably with his lame 4 (or is it 5) points on "ignoring" but, unless quoted, I won't see it.
  20. Many times folk mention me and I don't see any point in replying to it. Baz thinks that if he is mentioned then it indicates an expression of interest in engaging with him when, in reality, it means no such thing. If I mention Hitler, Jimmy Saville or Prince Andrew does that mean I want to talk to them? Fair enough, two of them are dead but I'm sure you get the point. There are also many of his posts that reference me (and that's just ones I've seen quoted, god knows how many there actually are) without me being involved anywhere. I've mentioned other posters on here without them seeing the need to reply, Baz, however always sees the need to get involved, it's like heroin to him, he's tried it once and now can't get enough. It probably annoyed him to learn that I knew he was replying to me but I wasn't engaging with him You know, this all started when I pointed out that he'd made a typo and hence made his post mean the opposite of what he meant and had been arguing previously in the thread. He couldn't even accept that he'd made a typo and proceeded to attack me and even when I quoted his post he denied it. That's how thin skinned, egotistical and argumentative he is. I was trying to be helpful but he took it as an attack. It all went downhill from then. [emoji1787] No doubt he'll reply to this and prove my point.
