First time I've heard "guessing" described as a "scientific approach". :D

You'd have more luck at the bookies if you stopped treating each football match as a series of dependent events (e.g. thinking that just because Saints haven't scored for 8 games, it means they won't score 4 goals today etc).

The way a team performs will be more affected by how the team members are feeling on a particular match day than the previous results they have experienced. It only needs a couple of them to have had a fight with their girlfriends/wives and turn up in a shitty mood for that to affect the entire team.

Sport is more about psychology than almost anything else which is why it is almost impossible to manage people in certain circumstances - no matter how good they are.

Here endeth the real science lesson. :P

I've read this again and made a phone call to 2 St Johnstone players.

Both told me to feck off, who should I bet on? 

You're a weirdo. :wink:

"The pitch has become unplayable due to heavy rain followed by snow which has left areas of the park waterlogged," the club said earlier. "With no improvement in the forecast for the rest of the day the referee has decided to call off the fixture.

Well I never...........

The bit I don't understand is, usually a waterlogged pitch has surface water and I've never seen snow lying on water.

In a few areas, maybe, but not necessarily so much that the light covering of snow could be sitting on the top of the grass.

Sodden ground wouldn't necessarily be covered in puddles. 

The weather before, and up to Perth, was severe and cold with it. (Car temperature was saying between zero and one degree all the way yp the road)

Got a bad gut feeling about this match. 

St Johnstone 3 St Mirren 1

Crowd 2487

2-0 to St Johnstone..they will score early in 1st half and finish game off in 2nd...Oran will set up negatively with one upfront..when we go 2 behind will start chasing the game...ffs go 2 upfront...
