The Week in Review: 14th-20th April 2008

Monday 14th April 2008. We learned that Stoke would win the Championship, West Brom would finish second, the play-off places would be made up by Watford, Wolves, Bristol City and Hull City, Leicester would join Scunthorpe and Colchester in League One, and the Canaries would finish 14th. We also realised that by reminiscing over previous glories you can forget a certain disappointing derby defeat.

Tuesday 15th April 2008. We uncovered five ways things could be worse for City supporters, and what I was doing on the day of the Hillsborough Disaster.

Wednesday 16th April 2008. Fabio Capello believes Wayne Rooney could be England captain one day. I can’t see it somehow. We also remembered a proper England kit.

Tom HicksThursday 17th April 2008. Thursday was a very busy day. We learned that the Anfield boardroom contains at least one complete moron, that The Football League was 120 years old, we came to the staggering conclusion that at the weekend we’d either be very happy, relatively content or pretty worried, and it was also revealed that 47% of readers think Leicester are screwed.

Friday 18th April 2008. On Friday we had a look at Sepp Blatter’s “6+5 plan”, and marvelled at the serious journalist and presenter that is Ian Wright. Oh and I got a bit drunk on Pure Welsh IPA, which was very pleasant.

Saturday 19th April 2008. We discovered that 64% of people rightly predicted a Canary defeat to West Brom (which was helped somewhat by a couple of hundred clicks from Baggies fans), and we also confirmed we all thought – that the QPR game is going to be somewhat important.

Sunday 20th April 2008. On Sunday it was revealed that, actually, West Brom are going to win the league ahead of Stoke, that Palace will make the play-offs ahead of Wolves and that we’ll finish 16th. Leicester are still in the do-do though. We also took a look at the lessons we have learned this weekend, and I got a little bit annoyed with Martin Jacques of the Guardian.
