PL Donkey Dunk competition

A little bit of fun for all fans for the coming season.

Predictions of the fortunes of Lewis Dunk. The main man in the Brighton defence, The guy they trust with lining up the walls at free kicks (and staring at it all night m'lord). The Kop keepy uppy champion 2012, The Bwighton wock.

1. Number of yellow cards 2
2. Number of red cards
3. Own goals - 1
4. Injures an opponent resulting in them leaving the field of play
5. Goals conceded by BHAFC - 13
6. Penalties conceded by the south coast Beckenbauer
7. Special random selection of your choice

My predictions-

1. 15
2. 4
3. 2
4. 6
5. 78
6. 5
7. Arrested for dunk and disorderly after the club Christmas(relegation) party.

EDIT - running totals added

Superb thread!

1 = 12
2 = 2
3 = 3
4 = 2
5= 85
6 = 9
7 = Seaweed to be relegated with the record lowest points tally in a PL season and possibly highest number of goals conceded as well.

It's an amusing thread, but for me at least, one tinged with sadness.

Before he became this shattered mess of a player, surely destined for such humiliation this season that he will have to mentally accept his level, I think it's true to say he did once have potential.

But one can trace the precise point when it all went wrong. It was a tragic day, and one I'm always loathe to bring up. I refer to Brighton's season opener against Doncaster - a game in which Dunk should have been sent off for an horrific challenge on Billy Sharp.

Doncaster lost their best player, and lost the game from a winning position. As Brighton's fans either ignored or excused the heinous challenge, and their manager refused to condemn it (odd considering his crusade against rough, unpunished treatment of his own 'flair' players). The message to a young, impressionable Dunky was this: 'if the team is losing and not good enough to win legitimately, maiming them will give us the edge'.

And here we are.

So, not much use in a backs-to-the-wall scenario then?

5. Goals conceded by BHAFC 71

7. Special random selection of your choice. Investigated for match fixing. The accusation will be withdrawn, when the investigation discovers no wrong doing and that it is just because Dunk is really shit at football.
