In the event that City lose a game we dominate, we take comfort in the recent news that (XG) will be used should points being equal at the end of the season.
Here’s the (XG) from one of only TWO (2) games (the other was the Euros final) I’ve watched on telly since Covid.
City won the (XG) battle 3.53 to 0.70, Southampton missing a sitter represented by the big red blob but scoring with a 1% chance from the centre circle. The medium sized blue circles are City’s misses.
Oh, go on then. It’s practically staring at me, and I can get a Chinese takeaway from Bamboo Garden (NCTSS 3) at the same time.
Aren’t backstreet pubs near prisons alluring ?
Internally, the Greyhound isn’t a stunner, but it is a GBG regular,
and there seemed to be a posse of CAMRA members in the next room ordering cask (I stayed with the 2 lads watching football and discussing boiler repairs), so the Farmers Blonde should be decent.
And it was; cool, crisp, tasty. Lacings don’t lie, as Shakira nearly sang.
But the Greyhound was one of the 52 pubs I visited in November that didn’t get me a new pink mark in the Guide.
Eighty-four (84 pubs) spread around the country in large towns and small villages has an (XP) expected pubs of 66, more than BRAPA managed last month. My mere 32 represents profligacy and lack of focus.
Improvements are needed from now on, or else Tony Pulis as manager, I dunno.
