Championship Blues

Relegation Permutations

Blackburn face Brentford
at Griffin Park
and will survive
if they better
Nottingham Forest’s result.

If they match Forest’s result,
Rovers must effect
a two-goal swing
on Forest to finish above them
as Forest’s goal difference
is better by one
and they have also scored
nine more goals.

Blackburn will go down
if both clubs draw.

Birmingham will be safe
if they win at Bristol City
regardless of results
elsewhere.

However if Blackburn
and Forest both win
anything less than a victory
for Blues would send them down.
A draw would not be enough
in that scenario
as they have the worst goal difference
of the three clubs
who would all finish
on 51 points.

Kitchen Timer

September 22, 2015 § 3 Comments

Instructions for Use

Wind up the timer
turning rotor A clockwise
for about one turn.

Set the activation time
by positioning notch B
on dome C
on the desired minutes
etched on body D.
The alarm will go off
at the time set.

Warning: to set the timer,
always turn the rotor clockwise
for about one turn and then
set the minutes required.
Do not turn the rotor
anti-clockwise beyond 0:
doing so will permanently damage
the internal mechanism.

Due to the nature of the mechanism,
the timer does not measure time
with the precision of a clock,
and therefore slight discrepancies
are to be considered normal.
