Presumably everyone is trying to learn how to spell the names of the senior(moment) squad loanees instead. Maybe just call them Midfielder 1 to X? Speaking of numbers, could some kind soul change the thread title “16” to “19” to ease my OCD?!

Good to see Tom Holmes playing. Is this his first game back from injury ?

Why are there only 3 play-off places this season, and why are the bottom 2 sides in group 1 highlighted?
I assume they`ve changed the play-off system.

I was hoping Osho was playing tomorrow. It will be tough. Forest have only lost five League games all season. They have drawn a lot of games. We need more than a point tomorrow.

2 down is the same as last season. In the absence of any better information, my best guess would be that flashscore has incorrectly highlighted 2nd to 4th instead of 2nd to 5th.

From the Premier league website

There are 12 teams in Division 1 and 12 in Division 2, with every club playing each other once at home and once away
In Division 1, the team who finish first are champions
The bottom two teams in Division 1 get relegated to Division 2
In Division 2, the league winners get automatic promotion to Division 1
Teams ranked second, third, fourth and fifth go into a promotion play-off
Second plays fifth place at home and third hosts fourth in the semi-finals, both at the club’s main stadium, while the final takes place at the home ground of the team who finished highest in the league
All play-off matches are one-off ties, decided by extra-time and then penalties if the match is level after 120 minutes
There is no relegation from Division 2

Sunday morning and still no report on the Website of the U23’s superb win on Friday at top of the table Wolves to leap frog them to return to the top spot.
At least i saw Scott Marshall at half time yesterday and congratuled him on his teams performance.
The website operators should hang their heads in shame !!!!
Edit just put up now !

No change then. OS really is awful for coverage of the U23s. You’d think that given the utter cr@pness of the first team this season they’d take the opportunity to really highlight how well the U23s are doing and perhaps even run items on individual players.
