|What Should Be A Realistic Points Target for August?|
at 17:25 20 Jun 2019
We have six matches in August, but what should be an acceptable points target for them? Personally, I think that 9 points would be a very satisfactory start to the season.
Last season we won only one of these fixtures and got just 5 points out of a possible 18.
Hull (Home): 2-2 (1 pt)
Derby (Away): 2-1 (0 pt)
Preston (H): 1-0 (3 pts)
QPR (A): 4-0 (0 pt)
Brum (H): 0-0 (1 pt)
Leeds (A): 2-1 (0 pt)
5 goals scored: 10 goals conceded.

Good choice, although they shouldn't have got rid of Darren Moore.
"There will need to be a rebuilding job of sorts at the club, mindful of the need to reduce the wage bill after Albion failed to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking, but Bilic has clearly received assurances that the ambition is there to mount another promotion challenge next season. Albion are confident they have found the right man to deliver on that front."

This has now been posted on the Brighton fans forum by their supporters doing their research, one of the comments is "I don't understand. All those players running towards the other team's goal. What sort of insane idea of football is this? Why isn't everyone behind the ball where they belong?" Hughton sounds like a very defensive manager.

|Who most deserve to go up? Who actually will go up?|

(1) Leeds most deserve to be promoted. They've been on the naughty step in the Championship for long enough, and are the team that most other teams were afraid of.
(2) However I'm expecting West Brom to make an immediate return to the Premier League simply because they have the best players.

|Alzheimers / Dementia and other conditions - How to claim a council tax discount|
at 17:44 10 Apr 2019
"Like students and under-18s, in Eng, Scot and Wales, those who have a severe mental impairment are 'disregarded' for council tax purposes. This means if they live alone they shouldn't pay any council tax, or more commonly, if they live with one other adult, often their carer, there should be a 25% discount (typically worth about £400/yr).
To qualify, someone must be medically certified as having a severe mental impairment (ie, one that severely and permanently affects their intellectual and social functioning), and be eligible for certain benefits. Eg, dementia, strokes and Parkinson's are all conditions that could result in someone having a severe mental impairment. Our How to claim SMI guide has full info.
Some councils will backdate the payout. This can be huge - Tom tweeted: "I've claimed back £9,649.65 for my dad who suffered a stroke in 1999 and has lived alone since 2005. Thank you so much. This will make a big difference."
