right unless Uncle disagrees, I propose rule amendment 1 to add Boogs to the exemption list from the late entry penalty and the default penalty for anyone else joining late (Al?) becomes the worse of where they would have been if joined on time or the worstest team when they join

OK Uncle?

Interesting footage on Sky this morning of the Yeovil v Brum game last night. In short... Player injured, goalkeeper throws the ball out, play resumes but instead of returning the ball to the goalkeeeper, Yeovil score... fight ensues....game resumes, goes to extra time, Yeovil score... play resumes, Yeovil players stand there and allow Brum to walk a goal in... penalties, Brum win  :thumbsup:

Well the right thing happened eventually

A busy night all round but sadly no calamities.   Liverpool went close to a serious one when Notts County fought back

Calamity?

Over to Uncle in the judging room to confirm or deny please

Gareth Bale joins Real Madrid from Spurs in 85m world record deal

Sure looks like loss of a key player

Calamity!

Uncle has confirmed the bad news for Tipsy that Bale going south is loss of a key player.  Calamities do seem to be a bit thin on the ground so far

It's better than I ever even knew.  They say that the world was built for two.  Only worth living if somebody is loving you.  Baby now you do.

My reasoning as given to Steve:

Bale has an influence over a game above and beyond just the number of goals scored. Arsenal would have played different if Bale had played. They would have concentrated on him to the detriment of more open play. The result could easily have been different. Bale is definitely a key player

You're welcome to make a counter argument.

"Stephen Warnock shown a red card for second bookable offence."

That'll be a strike mark against Misty's Leeds then

Calamity!

"West Ham manager Sam Allardyce speaking to Match of the Day about Mark Noble's second yellow card for a tackle on Ross Barkley: "It is always easy to look at the situation on my laptop afterwards and say Mark played the ball first."

Yeah whatever Sam it's still the first strike mark against Uncle's Hammers
