Mike Gray

Well done to Mike Gray who wins the manager of the month award and with it the £50 monthly prize.

Well done also to Manchester City who have been forced to announce the sacking of their 7th manager in 10 years! 

Only 6 months ago the odd looking Pelligrini (07th Aug 2015)  was given a 2 year contract extenstion which would take him to June 2017.  Loyal City had other idea's.

The new manager Pep was asked for one good reason why he is to join Man City. He replied that he could come up with 288,000 every week!!!!!

Mike Gray

Only Mike Gray has managed to put in a decent score this week, with his fantastic 19 points. This puts Mike in pole position for this month's £50.00 prize. Before this week it looked a dead cert that Jacob would win it.

On the other end of the scale we have a massive pair of puddings who both managed to score Zero!!! The puddings are Dave Barber and Mark Page.

Johanne Lee moves into second place with the joint second highest weekly score of 9!!

24 January 2016

Jacob and Dave

A fantastic score of 25 makes Jacob this weeks top cashballer, while Dave Barber is the only player to score in single figures (9)!!!

18 January 2016


Wow only Mike Gray and Kevin the Red managed to score in double figures this week!

Harry Lee joins the Zero club.

No change at the top as Brainy Brian bangs in a steady 6 points.

13 January 2016

Jack Lee

Jack Lee has made cashball history and is the first person to win 'back to back' manager of the month awards! Well done Jack. £50.00 on the way. 

Mark Molloy is the manager of the week with his impressive 20 points.

No change at the top as Brainy Brian starts the new year looking down on everyone.

A happy new year to all cashballer's and their families (even the blue ones). 

03 January 2016

Brainy Brian

Brainy Brian picks up this week's top score with 17 points. This further extends his lead at the top.

The quick turn around of fixtures has clearly effected some peoples ability to think straight, and the single figure scores have crept back in!! Come on its not rocket science. Please buck up!!!

31 December 2015

Mike Gray

Mike Gray (past cashballer winner) has finally found some form and scored top points this week with 25. This has propelled him up the league to 5th from bottom!!!

Everone has heeded last weeks warning and shown a massive improvment apart from one person! Mentioning no names but Mark Molloy pull your finger out buddy!!!!!

Brian stays out in front after a weird week of results as only Liverpool from the top flight clubs managed a victory.

27 December 2015

Nick Alpress

Nick Alpress is this weeks top scorer with a great 16.

Brainy Brian stays out in front and is alone in the 200 club.

Shaun continues his good form and moves up into 5th place.

Far too many people have only scored in single figures this week, so I suggest if you are one of them that you take yourself to one side and think about how you can smarten yourself up!!!!

22 December 2015

Jack Lee

Jack Lee pips his brother Harry Lee by 1 point to take this month's £50 prize with his score of 55.

A great score of 22 from Nicole puts her on top of this week's pile.

No change at the top as Brainy Brian looks down on everyone.

Single figures from Didd's and Mark make them this week's prize plums!!!


14 December 2015

Jack Lee

Jack Lee is this week's top boy with his score of 17. Well done Jack and Stoke City.

Brainy Brian stays at the top, and only 2 points seperate 2nd place from 5th place!

It is also very tight going into the final week of this months £50 prize.

Jack Lee 39, Glyn 39 and Harry Lee 40.

08 December 2015

Lee Family

Some week for the Lee family. Jess joins the exclusive pudding's club with her big fat ZERO, and Harry Lee gets the top score of 18. Well done Hazza.

Brainy Brian reclaim's his top spot again with Darryl hot on his heals.


30 November 2015


Darryl has clear air at the top of the pile as Brainy Brian has a stinker of a week as have Didds (5) Mike Gray (4) and Man City (1-4).

Don't worry too much if your a City fan as the transfer window is open soon.

24 November 2015


Darryl wins this month's £50 prize with a great score of 55. Well done to him.

Peter Hartley is this week's super hero with his tally of 16. He was the only cashballer to correctly predict that the richest club in the entire world would not beat rock bottom Aston Villa. So a super well done to him.


08 November 2015

Tight at the top

Brainy Brian takes back the top spot on the count back rule. But Darryl looks odds on to take the monthly prize.

The 3 people who scored in single figures this week need to have a harsh word with themselves!!!! Its not rocket science.

05 November 2015


Darryl continues his recent good form and with this week's top score of 20 takes the overall lead away from the long term leader Brainy Brian.

Mark Molloy slips into second place and Mike Gray and Glyn avoid a zero by the skin of their teeth.

25 October 2015

BBC Price of football

The BBC "Price of football" survey was published last week to show just who is ripping who off!!!! 

So the Richest club in the history of world football has;

Most expensive of cheapest matchday tickets!

Most expensive pies!

2nd most expensive of cheapest away tickets!

2nd most expensive replica shirt!

Well as you know City fans are not daft (well some of them anyway), they have an answer to this extorsion, they simply just stay away from cup games etc...

Well the Arab is not daft either, he then gives tickets away for £5.00 and on occasions £1.00 or even free (BOGOFF) in order to avoid the embarrassment of all the empty seats!!!!

In conclusion the Arab is either running out of money or simply sick of Man City sponging off him. You decide which!!

As you know I like to pick positives when I can. Man City have the cheapest programme's. Some might say this is because they have little history to reflect on. So the content of the programme is limited! I say they are trying to give something back to their NEW loyal fans.


20 October 2015


Jacob takes the second monthly prize of £50.00 with a fantastic score of 61. Well done Jacob.

Brainy Brian is still at the summit of the table after another funny week of football. Only Arsenal out of the big clubs managed to secure a victory.

04 October 2015

Dave Barber

Dave Barber has achieved what has never been done before!!!!! Two consecutive ZERO's in a row. 

Brainy Brian maintains his slender lead at the top of the table, while Jacob takes pole position as we go into the final week of the second monthly £50.00 race.

Jacob 40, Darryl 36, followed by the trio of Mark, Glyn and Jess who are all on 33.

28 September 2015


If anyone missed Match of the Day On Sat night, They announced that Man City's starting 11 was the most expensive in the history of the League. And they still got HAMMERED!!!!!!

The other massive loser's this week are Dave Barber and Peter Hartley who both managed bit fat zero's.

A fantastic week for Darryl with a score of 16. Marks great score of 13 moves him into second place.

20 September 2015


The figures for the latest transfer window make depressing news for real football fans!! (source daily Mirror). Net spend ie after purchases and sales of players.

Stoke £3.3 million, Southampton £3.7 million, Aston Villa £8.1 million, Swansea £9.6 million, Norwich £9.9 million, Arsenal £10.7 million, Spurs £12.3 million, Sunderland £14 million, Bournmouth £18.00 million, Everton £19.6 million, Westham £20.1 million, Leicester £20.4 million, Palace £20.5 million, Liverpool £21.7 million, WBA £23.8 million, Watford £34.3 million, Chelsea £37.6 million, Newcastle £42 million, Man utd £43 million. MAN CITY £102.00 million.

This latest splashing of someone else's cash has now taken Man City to the top of the Nett spend list for the whole of the premier leagues existence 1992/93 to 2013/14.

Man City £741,777.000          Man United £439,860.00

For a club that has not turned a profit since the late 1960's thats pretty impressive stuff.

PS There are still tickets available for thier match tomorrow evening, despite £5.00 ticket prices.

PPs Well done Jacob on a brilliant score of 18

14 September 2015


What a great finish to the first race for the monthly prize of £50.00. A fantastic score of 17 from Brainy Brian and Shaun, means that Dave has been pipped to the post on the count-back rule. So well done to Brainy Brian your prize is on its way.

With only Arsenal out of the big clubs winning this week it caused havoc with the points tally.

This months members of the "pudding club" are the bottom six in the cashball league. So puddings I suggest you pull your fingers out!!!!!!!

31 August 2015

First £50.00

Hello cashballer's, Dave keeps his slender lead intact as we move into the final week in the race for the first £50.00.

There were quite a few people who managed to score single fiqures this week. I suggest you buck up!!! Its not rocket science.

25 August 2015

Mark and Glyn

Hello cashballers, Mark and Glyn are this week's top dogs with great scores of 16.

Dave Barber keeps his nose in front at the half way stage in the first monthly race for £50.00

18 August 2015

Dave Barber

Welcome back cashballers. Dave Barber has hit the ground running and is this weeks top man.

Mike Gray records the first ZERO of the new season!!!!


An update to the FIFA financial fair play standing;

FIFA have all but abolished the fair play rules and so Man City have managed to scrape through this season without incuring any more fines for cheating. Any silverware that is won this season will be deemed to have been acheived by following the rules.

When asked would the club be returning the 3 trophies that Man City won while breaking the rules a spokesman for the club said

"We bought those trophies fair and square". ahem
