When two smaller town English clubs play, I usually go for whichever one has a better Monty Python reference.
This one was tough, as Coventry City have the famous reference in the "World Forum" sketch where Che Guevara, Lenin, Mao, and Marx all miss the question, "Coventry City have last won the English football cup in which year?"
It's a trick question, as Coventry City have never won the FA Cup. (Was true for about a decade after the sketch, then they did win it.)

But Luton have the "plane to Cuba hijacked to Luton" sketch:

And the Election Night Silly Party sketch, where the Silly Party has taken Luton:

I would guess that today Luton, normally a very sensible constituency with a high proportion of people who aren't a bit silly, has gone completely ga-ga.

Here at Luton it's a three-cornered fight between Alan Jones - Sensible Party, in the middle, Tarquin Fin-tim-lim-bim-whin-bim-lim-bus-stop- F'tang- F'tang- Olè- Biscuitbarrel - Silly Party, and Kevin Phillips-Bong, the Slightly Silly candidate.
Officer: Alan Jones...
Voice Over: On the left, Sensible Party
Officer: 9,112... Kevin Phillips-Bong...
Voice Over: On the right, Slightly Silly.
Officer: Nought...Tarquin Fin-tim-lin-bin-whin-bim-lin-bus- stop- F'tang- F'tang-Olé-Biscuitbarrel...
Voice Over: Silly.
Officer: 12,441.
Voice Over: And so the Silly Party has taken Luton.
Linkman: A gain for the Silly Party at Luton. The first gain of the election, Norman?
Norman: Well this is a highly significant result. Luton, normally a very sensible constituency with a high proportion of people who aren't a bit silly, has gone completely ga-ga.

1-0 Stockport with 10 to go...goal was scored on a strange cross. Stockport the better team but Carlisle have had their chances.

Good luck to all in these 11:30 starts. I know as a Liverpool fan, I’m supposed to cheer against Everton but I really just can’t muster it. Good luck @OCST. Liverpool (the city) deserves two teams in the PL.

Heidenheim goes from 3rd place (two leg playoff with Stuttgart for promotion) to 1st place with two goals in stoppage time at Regensburg.

It will be Stuttgart vs Hamburg in the playoff.

Leeds a goal down to Spurs, so not looking good for them.

Everton are having a bit of joy with Gray and McNeil, but a quality final ball hasn't been delivered thus far.

If Leicester score first in their match i fear for Everton.

That is crazy! I was watching the pitch invasion in Hamburg, and that was going on. Wow!

Hard to tell where a goal for Everton can come from. They really miss DCL.


Big half time talk for Dyche here.
They don’t have anyone to get shots, so they should just pump it into the box as much as possible and hope they can pounce on a loose ball.

Everton trying to defend a lead against Bournemouth is very much a resistance force meeting a movable object.

I know it’s meaningless but this pickup game in Southampton sure is fun. 2-0 Liverpool early then 4 straight for the Saints followed by 2 goals in 2 mins for Liverpool. 4-4.

Lucas Moura scoring with the last touch of his last ever Spurs game was awesome.

This was me. And an Everton fan showed up at the bar so I was watching it through his eyes. That was intense and a lot of fun. Congrats OCST
