    ariotofmyown got a reaction from Justa in Path to the playoffs   
    I've done some analysis and think the playoff charge is still on...
    14 points behind 6th place Bournemouth: we've taken 4 points off them and they look poor. Lost 3 on the row now and could be within sight if both our form and theirs continues for a couple of games.
    12 points behind 7th place Boro with game in hand: 4 points from last 5 games, beat them and win game in hand then we need to make up 6 points over 18 games. Easy.
    11 points behind 8th place Blackburn: probably hardest to catch as on good form. Will need them to start dropping points soon to put the pressure on.
    11 points behind 9th place Bristol City: did you see them today? They are rubbish.
    10 points behind 10th place Stoke with a game in hand: just 3 draws from last 5 games. Looked poor against us. Very catchable.
    8 points behind 11th place Preston down to 2 points behind 17th place Coventry. 3 teams we have games in hand over and all the teams in this group of average.  Good chance we'll finish above all of these.
    Summary: We'll need Bournemouth's poor form to continue but only them and Blackburn look tricky to catch.
    We're 5th in the form table over 10 games and 1st-6th contains us, plus the top 5 in the league. We just need to find a way to beat the weaker teams now.

    Hmmm... Supporting a syphilis addled, genocidal maniac's quest for world domination resulting in 450,000 British casualties, is rather more of a 'faux pas' than thinking Lincoln was a bit too progressive, don't you think?

    I’m very seriously considering upgrading my Peugeot 3008 to a new hybrid 3008 when it comes out in January. 
    we’re on a PCP scheme with Peugeot, so we pay monthly. We pay about £250-£300 a month on petrol. Before lockdown my wife would have to drive about 80 miles a day, and I’d have to do some long trips to Manchester. We were spending about £500 a month between us. 
    Electric motor has a range of about 40 miles, which is exactly what my wife needs to get to her new work and back. 
    so I figure, if it increases our monthly payment by £100-£150 we should be quids in. 
    we also have solar panels, batteries, and a leccy tarriff that pays us for using electricity during the night, which should reduce recharging costs to virtually zero. 
    thinking of investing in a fast charger too. That way I can finish work, get home at 5, stick it on to fast charge, and then it’s fully charged ready for her to get off to work at 7. 
    I did fancy a full electric for my next car, going hybrid feels a bit like being a vegetarian who still eats fish and chicken on special occasions. But I think a plug in hybrid is a good, sensible half way house til the infrastructure catches up.

    Good performance really, think we deserved a draw from that. Can't do much about it when the ref is on their side and all the luck goes against you. We were probably the better side.

    I can't find any direct link to The Guardian calling the Proclamation of Emancipation "abhorrent"; they used that term about Lincoln's time as President after he was assassinated because they were bizarrely anti-Lincoln. The background to why  The Guardian supported the South's right to secede can be found in an opinion piece from 10 years ago.
    https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2011/feb/24/1865-guardian-stance-us-civil-war
    Undoubtedly wrong headed by today's standards, although Britain as a whole stayed neutral in the American Civil War, so the stance wasn't unusual for the time. The only place I could find a link to The Guardian calling the Proclamation of Emancipation "abhorrent" was a misleading Guido Fawkes hatchet job, which linked to a letter sent to The Guardian in 2008 to get its quote.
    Anyway, about that takeover......

    The commentator on 45 minutes “One last opportunity for Derby...” You then hear the stadium announcement “The fourth official has indicated six minutes of added time”.

    All the numbers, hospital, deaths and cases continue on a downward trend which is great news. Hopefully the good weather will continue and this will continue to be the trend as lockdowns start to be lifted 🤞

    I wish I had known beforehand too, but never like to read about series before I've finished to avoid spoilers.
