I’m not sure if I am reading this correctly but you can pick all the good teams for very little points. Like why would you pick Barnsley for 24 points? Hull for 20. Unless like I say I don’t follow it, hehe. Forgive me if so.

You’re dead right Malc, I think the values should be the opposite way round like Newcastle 24 for example

I don’t know why but it’s the Fan Pub website that puts the teams the opposite way around.

If I go in and edit the post all the teams are the right way around so I don’t know why it shows them all the opposite way around.

Some kind of sequential auto listing? That’s very odd.

I as a Mod have gone in and added a dash (-) before each number as a work around - not ideal but it seems to stop the website thinking the list should be a numbered list in sequential order - so at least the teams now have the correct values. A way around this in the future would be to put the numbers in brackets or something (1) to stop the website seeing it as a numbered list and reordering it in sequential order.

where do we send entries to?

He didn’t put his e-mail address - psst … I will put that on for him (now done).

Also for anyone that does not know Dougie or see him you can always Pay Pal entry fees via me (as he does not have a Pay Pal a/c) and I will pass them on. Or you can send him a cheque if ya in UK but contact him directly to arrange that.
