    think the confusion around the Wolves game stops this being talked about more. Strange there is no set rule for cup tie results when trying to assess a winning run!

    After 90mins it was a draw. At 120mins it was a draw. At the end of the pen shootout we battered 'em!

    Of course not. They won it far and square, just like they did the league in 2014......!

    If it wasn't for the useless Bobby Madley screwing us over and likely costing us a win against Everton, we'd be on 21 consecutive wins in all competitions as it stands.

    There is though. The IFAB say that when a game needs a winner (which that one-off LC game did) then the winner can be determined by extra time and/or a penalty shoot out. The LC accept it as a win; the FA say that they also accept it as a win etc. The issue comes with statistic websites/spreadsheets that don't have capacity to record it as a win. Companies/statisticians that base their records on spreadsheets struggle with this, but those that have maintained records since footy began (such as the Nationwide Football Annual which under various names has been in existence for over 130 years) have confirmed they recognise it.

    Thanks for the confirmation Gary, and sorry I wrongly referred to you (writer and historian) as a statistician in my earlier post haha!!

    You're absolutely right we should be celebrating it more, it's an incredible achievement.

    Even if you're suspicions are right and it is on the low side and the great Preston Wanderers side of 1609 have the record, we can be pretty certain it's a modern record in the era of 4/5 competitions, beating the previous record which stood for 30 years. No way on earth should we downplay it, an achievement that's well earned, playing beautiful football.
