FIFA 20 Verdict: Morecambe v Stevenage [21 Mar 2020]

Good news – the EFL has said results predicted by our FIFA 20 Verdict will count towards our final points tally if this season can’t be ended. We *believe* that there will be no other modelling systems considered. And that means no-one else will be getting any points ‘cos we ain’t using it to predict any other games. So, we better not make a total arse of this. Of course, Oldham can make an official complaint if they wish. It’ll just get ignored…*

Now then. Where were we…?

Pete H is the head of the BoroGuide team; helping to keep the show on the road for the best part of two decades – all because of his love of Boro'. He was relatively late to the scene; first rocking up at Broadhall Way during the 1995-6 season. But that's mainly because he was too young to pledge allegiance before then. There have been more than enough highs (Easter Monday '96) and lows (Kettering '02) since then, however, to keep him occupied. Yes, and the 2010 title win...
