=====================================

I’m sorry AJ but statistics would suggest that the person you spoke to was talking nonsense.

In theory if a coin is flipped 99 times and it lands a head every time on the 100th flip it is still 50/50 how it will land. In fact you could actually argue that it’s more likely to land heads again as there may be some sort of bias in the coin, however that is more geometry than statistics. 

These thing happen, people just notice them because they seem out of the ordinary and counter intuitive. The fabled “law of averages”. However 10 homes in a row is no more or less likely than home, home, away, home, home, away, home, home, away, home. It just draws the attention more, particularly when observers are pre-disposed to suspect nefarious activities.

The Police are still tracing some of the hooligans in relation to the violence after the cup final.

Some of these images are pretty clear and hopefully people will be both able and willing to identify them.

130 arrested so far, with a further 16 potentially identified in the latest batch.

I couldn’t agree more.
===================================

If the TV income is spread evenly across the league several of the top division clubs will struggle really badly. A loss of revenue of somewhere between £500k and £2m would be a disaster for them. Particularly bearing in mind that this is prize money, so not the same costs involved than normal turnover like merchandising etc. 

Like I said it would be a boon for the lower divisions, however do people really think it would make the top division more competitive. I don’t see it myself.

You guessed, what gave it away.

Our hero, and he really is a hero is at it again with his self-effacing prose.

“I cover every issue and more often than not you will read it here first. If I were a Superhero and not a mere blogger I would literally champion the oppressed. However as one who believes  that the pen is mightier than the sword I revert to keystrokes. I have never had a tattoo but if I ever decided to go down this route I would choose the Palestinian flag. However as this might offend one of my my best friends, Max in Tel Aviv, I continue to demure.”

I’m assuming he means demur, however he could well be a shy, modest lady. 

The heroism continues

“When it comes to murderers who remain at large this site will continue to hold the most the most odious mass murderer since Pol Pot, Tony Blair, to account. Given half a chance I would fell him with a single head-butt or induce irreparable damage to his frontal lobes with an upward punch to his nose. Suffice to say I have sufficient training in martial arts to make this blow count. People like Blair are immune to the pen. This lily livered pansy deserves the sword.”

Can you guess who it is yet.

THE case for retaining Hampden as the home of Scottish football has been dealt a blow after a survey found just 15 per cent of fans were happy to stay put.

…..

The Scottish Football Supporters Association (SFSA) carried out a survey of just under 3,000 of its members and found only a sixth wanted to see major internationals and cup finals staged at Hampden.
