    Need to give a time limit before games.

    I remember a couple of years ago a lot of people signed up and never bothered so we were left with someone quickly listing one a day before the game.

    Shall we have a ‘Blue Sky, Running Ideas up the flagpole ‘ brainstorming session for categories to go along with “local architecture “

    How about

    1- Most impressive famous person
    2- Most naff famous person
    3- 7 degree of Kevin Bacon from the naff famous person but swopping Kev for light entertainment great “Wor Cilla”
    4- Famous bands
    5- Most villainous historical character
    6- Most unreputable local service station , to be associated with brown paper transfer bungs.
    7- Player from 70s/80s with worst haircut with accompanying picture.
    8- how many time said team has beaten the scum.
    9- Hiw many time said team has beaten their own scum.

    Any chance we can pin this thread as even though I've opted for the opening game of the season, pretty sure I'll forget.

    On the subject of pinned threads, how about sticking the Watford Ladies thread somewhere else? Hardly anyone contributes to it so seems a bit pointless having it pinned on the front page.

    What a great idea. I did about three last season I think my Huddersfield A was well liked. I'll leave it to the pros of the board this season.

    Nice to see a lot of early interest. Actually...
    Yeah can I do Aston Vanilla H on 28th Dec?

    Really enjoyed our two wins few seasons back.

    Geat idea again.

    Go on then, I’ll go with Man City at home. The bitterness from nearly a year since the cup final will be so extreme by then that I’ll need some way to release it.

    I reckon I could write a bot to auto template any match preview based upon analysis of millions of previous match previews , in the same methodology used to design Big Blue when it beat Kasparov.
