I am not saying psychology isn't some or most of those things as well, but your definition of neuroscience is utterly lacking. The part about a series of chemical reaction is true mostly due to the broadness of that statement.
think fan may have been slightly trolling

Re: English Football 2015-16

in a (likely vain) attempt to rescue the thread from ultimate international break AIDS, I've devised a fun game for tomorrow.

Let's play SAN MARINO SQUARES!

I've taken the top 100 posters (by volume) itt, and pasted their names into an old Superbowl Squares sheet.

Spoiler:


The X axis represents the final digit of the first goal minute for the San Marino game. The Y axis represents the last goal time. So for example, if the first goal is scored in the 22nd minute and the last goal is scored in the 88th, the highlighted square (BAIDS) would win.

SAN MARINO SQUARES is free to enter, and the winning prize is £10 on PayPal. GL everyone!

Re: English Football 2015-16

So last year Alexis was the runaway leader in through balls with 55. The closest rival was Silva had 39. Ramsey had 27

Anyway this year Ramsey is the early runaway leader with 7 and Alexis has 0.

I know lol 4 games but have l'Arse changed their setup in some way or what is going on?

l'Arse do love them through balls though - had 5 of the top 10 last year

this is exactly the direction I was hoping the thread would take, and I feel it's an immediate improvement on the psychology discussion!

Re: English Football 2015-16

I sense a 'squares against JoeDiego' post should there be a goal in the first minute and/or injury time in the second half.

Last edited by ZAIDS; 09-04-2015 at 05:28 PM. Reason: please clarify injury time minutes - real or official?

a first half injury time goal will count as 45 (ie a win for 5) and likewise a second half one will count as a win for 0. I guess burnsss has a slight edge!

Re: English Football 2015-16

So LO what exactly motivated you to post that involved and complex graph and offer your own money to deflect discussion away from psychology?

Re: English Football 2015-16

no, there is no 92nd minute for the purposes of this competition, since everything after the 89th will class as the 90th.

Also you have it the wrong way round. A goal in the 12th and 89th mins would work for you!

Sucks like everyone but like 1 set gets eliminated once first goal is scored.
