The seemingly interminable counting process in the USA! USA!! USA!!! election, and the confounding peaks and troughs that have come with it, has probably been a doddle to follow for football fans. It’s really been all about games in hand. You always want to count them as three points in the table of your mind’s eye, but we really know deep down that there’s a big difference in whether you’ve got a tricky away at Florida Panhandle Rovers or you’re taking on Lackawanna County United on home turf. After all, teams can get off to all the storming starts they want but it’s all about who is top of the pile come the end of the season.
