  1. Well done to me for winning for the fourth year running....! 




    I will not open the PM until my list is posted. 


    If you haven’t played before please get involved. Rules listed below.


    1. Each contestant much pick 10 celebrities who they think will die between 00:01, 27th January 2020 and 23:59 31st December 2020. Lists are final as of the starting time.


    2. When the death has been confirmed, points will be awarded, and the people who had them chosen may choose a new celebrity for their list.


    3. A celebrity is defined as a person who lives their life in the public domain. If we have not heard of them, then we can reject them. A good rule of thumb is if they have a Wikipedia page that you didn't just make.


    4. Death row prisoners and people in public 'right to die' cases are not permitted.


    5. Your picks can be any age at all. No minimum or maximum for the categories, but points will be awarded like this:

    50+ - 10 points

    35-49 - 20 points

    -35 - 30 points


    6. NEW RULE

    You will get fewer points if it is one of your replacements which dies. This is because the new pick may be based on more recent news, so is not 'as skilled' as an original pick. This will also help level the playing field and reduce the chances of The Woolster running away with things. New scoring as follows.

    50+ - 9 points

    35-49 - 15 points

    -35 - 20 points



    Please PM me your lists, and I will begin the spreadsheet. Even if you want your list carried over from last year, please PM me to let me know so that I can 1. confirm your list, and 2. keep track in one place who has entered. This stops people copying your lists. Once the game begins, I will post the lists here. When you're sending your lists in, please put in the categories of your entrants in order like this...


    1. John 50+

    2. Mike 50+

    3. Steve 50+

    4. Sam 50+

    5. Arnold 50+

    6. Peter 50+

    7. David 35-49

    8. Liam 35-49

    9. Tom U35

    10. Paul U35


    Please don't use nicknames!

    Rhian Brewster : Made his first home appearance for Swansea against Wigan, scoring their first goal in the 2-1 win when running onto a through ball on the left side of the area and finishing from 15 yards into the opposite corner of the goal. Subbed off with five minutes left. Job done.

  3. That too, its another little psychological boost considering they hadn't managed to get to 400 for a while.


    They added 30 odd off what, 3 or 4 overs between the no ball wicket and the actual wicket. Could have added another 20 odd to turn that screw more and give us a bit more flexibility if we get to a position to declare in the 2nd innings. And if the wicket falls straight away, it makes no difference

    I think there's more to it than the 30m I think. I'm sure it came out in the trial that we have royalties at 20% or something , which is double what most sides get. If we maintain our sales numbers we achieve under new balance it is estimated we will make 60-70m a year. The hope is we exceed them obviously. 


    Mail reporting as being worth £80m



  5. Suppose we should have a final table...


    The Woolster - 80 points

    Redheart - 50 points

    Skend04 - 40 points

    Megadriveman / Gruntfuttock / Littletedwest - 30 points

    Thoth - 20 points

    Aggers Elbow / Vladimirllyich / Jenson / Special K / Babb'sBurstnad / Nelly-Torres - 10 points

    Jairzinho / Fowlers God / Bjornebye / Tokyojoe - Nil points

    Not me I'm a lazy twat but I think I can predict 10 people who will some how cling onto life despite the odds

    The Woolster should be along soon. He's just busy going through the actual death list.

    Hurry up Woolster stop celebrating deaths again and get a move on so I can put Prince Philip in again before he fucks off 


    In the absence of @Fowlers God,I guess I don't mind running it now. I've got a title to defend after all!

    You sound like my 12 yo with all this lolling bollocks. 


    Studies have found that "lol" tends to be used by older, more middle aged people. Which might actually be more insulting to aRdj!


    If your 12 yo is a girl, she might be more likely to be saying "sksksks and I oop!", which I discovered when I ended up going down a VSCO rabbit hole recently.


    No, me neither...

    I’d happily give credit to the first person who mentioned Robertson here. Was it @The Woolster?


    And its only taken you 2 years to rep it the actual post...!


    To be honest, I don't know if I was the first on here to suggest him, but I sure as hell made sure I was the one who took credit for it!


    To be fair, the first person I actually saw mention him was Roy Henderson when he was on RAWK years and years ago when Robertson was at Dundee Utd, he was raving about him, so I kept an eye on him when he joined Hull.
