NBA suspends season after C Rudy Gobert tests positive
at 02:19 12 Mar 2020

Three days ago, Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert mocked the virus by intentionally touching reporters' microphones and recorders. He now has it.

We're still just six points out
at 16:35 5 Mar 2020

Just wanted to add some perspective. In 30 years of professional baseball (announcer for minor league teams), I've seen stranger things happen than what we're facing. We have 9 games left, six at home against nominally weaker clubs, so, as Yogi Berra said, 'It ain't over 'til it's over."
Cheers, all!

Villa report huge loss
at 21:38 4 Mar 2020

Villa lost 69m ($89M) despite selling their stadium to themselves, on a lease-back, for a 36m profit. They say it cost them 49m in bonuses when they returned to the Prem.

Took us over an hour to get a shot on goal
at 23:14 3 Mar 2020

The other side might as well pull their keeper for the first 60 minutes.
We then get 2 on target, but none for the rest of the match despite being one down.
Surely, we must have a strategy for what to do when down a goal that will produce chances.
In a must-win, we lost 0-1 at home to Fleetwood Town and only managed 5 shots.
Pathetic.

Path to the playoffs
at 15:50 12 Feb 2020

We'll need at least 25 points from here on out for a chance at the playoffs. Hard to imagine, but things will actually get worse before they get better. Hang on, though, because we are in for a wild ride to the finish. Here's how I see it:

We have 13 matches remaining, 9 at home and 4 away. We've been poor at home and we will continue that trend for our first four home matches, winning just one. If you think the cries for Lambo's scalp are loud now, wait for the deafening roars to come. However, things will right themselves dramatically as we face much softer sides towards the end of the home schedule (Southend, Bolton, Rochdale, Dons). In all, we'll win 5, draw 3 and lose 1 at home from here on out, earning 18 points.

Our away schedule features 4 clubs presently behind us, Doncaster's games in-hand notwithstanding. We'll win 2, draw one and lose one, producing 7 points.

In all, we'll get 25 points, finishing with 74. That might just get us into 6th.

Game-by-game details:

Home (18 points)

Burton 1
Oxford 1
Fleetwood Town 3
Coventry City 0
Portsmouth 1
Southend H 3
Bolton H 3
Rochdale H 3
MK Dons H 3

Away points (7)

Blackpool 3
Bristol 1
Shrewsbury 3
Doncaster 0
