I have noticed a tinned green bean count stretching from 1pm - 8am which I believe is 19 hours and contrary to BTFCA maximum in their rules and regulations.

Flabbergasted is not a word I use lightly!

Brilliant as usual gogo.

And yes, we have achieved greatness this season despite having to counteract the dreadful apologies for Tinned Food Counts in the other place.

But you are correct. One more big effort needed.

You shall not let us down.

My estimates are as follows,

Segments 33.
.
Residual Liquid 240ml.

Godspeed gogo.

What a sensational Count to end our memorable season.

Gogo has risen to the challenge yet again, as we all knew he would.

And this Count confirms us as Champions - all we are unsure of is the margin of victory.

And congratulations to our Champion Estimator whittyclaretandblue. What an incredible season this has been for him/her.
I shall have further news regarding the presentation of the Fabled Knitted Garment in the next few days.

So today let us raise our hats twice and raise two toats, one for our new Champion whittyclaretandblue and, of course, a big one for the incomparable gogogadgetlegs.

Well done those men.

It really is a honor to lift the coveted Fabled Knitted Garment in this historic season for the Clarets, it has been a remarkable season of food counts which have been expertly and professionally executed by GoGo and his efforts have surely seen the Clarets over the line. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all involved in this years competition it has been nip and tuck all the way, with the race going down to the wire between the top 3 the Power of The Count surely cannot be ignored.

We now need to prepare for a Premier League season of Counts where choice of produce and accuracy of guessing is key to ensure mid table safety as a minimum for our Mighty Clarets.

I would like to put myself forward for a Count for the FA Cup 3rd rnd.

At what point does a fragment become a segment.

Any part more than a half size of a segment is classed and counted as a full segment. If its a half or less than half then it is not (you need your tinned food count measurer to hand - technical stuff).

I can confirm that there were no fragments just full segments. Tasty too.

I cannot bloody believe I forgot to post the count. I blame the wife, it really was her fault.
