Well done to Dave in Gloucester, who in response to my "credit where credit is due" article has compiled a league table based on results since Christmas. I can't personally verify that the table is correct - I have to work for a living - but I'm trusting that Dave has done his sums properly. It makes interesting reading!

I think that makes Blackpool, Blackburn and Birmingham favourites for the drop! Everybody was talking the three Ws, now it might be the three Bs!
But as they say in the financial services ads, past performance is no guarantee of what will happen in the future. Especially in this craziest of seasons!
