    That's the Holmesian Fallacy

    This fallacy usually occurs when someone uses the Holmes Method without being a superhuman genius. The Holmes Method is illustrated by the quote from "The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier",[note 1] a 1926 Sherlock Holmes short story:

    "When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." —Sherlock Holmes

    To apply this method, one must find explanations and eliminate them one by one. However, to draw a logical conclusion from this is fallacious, because both steps require omniscience:

    1. Find every possible explanation.
    2. Correctly disprove every possible explanation, except the true and undisprovable one.

    Star Trek's Spock even uttered a version of it in Star Trek VI — The Undiscovered Country.[


    Maybe Doom is Omniscient?


    Well blow me, I didn't know that lol

    What about Chelsea league cup semi 2nd leg. 1991 got to be the best Hillsborough atmosphere in recent times that I remember , Kaiserslautern was close as was Brighton in the play offs.

    Agreed, atmosphere was incredible, still got nervous when they got a goal back to make it 4-1 on aggregate........nothing has changed



    I was at the Kaiserslautern game & always said it was the best ever atmosphere, even though it became a bit subdued after they scored the 2nd equaliser.


    The games in the last 10 years that matched it for me were:

    Brighton playoffs & Wycombe game.

    Both 90+ minutes of pure joy.

    I would still judge Westwood as our overall #1 but right now Dawson has done enough to keep the shirt.


    Still think he needs to play the majority of the games for the remainder of the season and I have concerns if he’s quite ready to do that for us. 

    If he does and performs well - great. But he definitely should be signing a new contract then going out on loan if not. Zero value in sitting on the bench.

    I also wouldn’t trade the #1 shirt for a contract. It needs to be earnt not negotiated.

    Exactly this^^^^^^^^^^^

    Taken from the latest article on The Athletic.


    P&S rules to allegedly protect clubs from financial disaster, yet these punishments would likely cause financial disaster. 


    Ive thought this for a while now.


    Efl could put a club out of business by using rules designed to stop clubs going out of business.
