Prediction League 1: 2017-18 - Intro & Latest Table

Wed Aug 02, 2017 10:33 am

Hi everyone! Hope you have had a great summer so far, despite the depressing situation down at the bonks's's's with all sorts of shenanigans going on with players - who knows what is going on! At least we have had other sports to keep us occupied and forgetting football for a short while at least such as the usually superb tennis from Wimbledon to enjoy, outstanding golf from Birkdale, centuries and hat tricks in the cricket and as well as a triple crown for Chris Froome on the roads in France!

But, whatever takes our mind off football for 2 months at least, here we are again, a few days before the new season. For those who aren't old hands at it by now, it is basically a fun, banter filled prediction competition between posters on here based on predicting the correct result / scoreline of 3 league one fixtures of your choice from each fixture week (can be a Saturday or midweek set of fixtures). After 46 weeks we see who the winner is! Anyone and everyone is free to enter and as the weeks unfold, you'll see it get pretty fractious and tactical on here between people! This thread will be for table updates throughout the season (please sticky it mods!)

Basic rules:
- choose three games from the fixture list (have to be at least 6 games to count as a fixture week)
- predict the score line for each game before the kick off times
- you get 2 points for an exact score, or 1 point for the correct result (e.g. if you predicted Bury 0 v 7 Walsall but the score was Bury 0 v 5 Walsall, you get 1 point)
- table is updated for each week so you can see your progress and the battle for the title!

The first week's prediction thread is up and running now so go to it to make your three predictions ready for Saturday. Good luck everyone!

Cully and Saddla to viciously attack it, leaving a trail of blood, snot and sinew in their wake, like a pair of angry pine martens.

Manchester has also vowed to return guaranteeing, that whatever else happens, I won't finish last. :D

One small correction in the "Basic Rules" section above:- if you predicted "Bury 0-7 Walsall" you don't get one point ... you get psychiatric treatment!

First table of the 2017-18 league season and pretty good scoring overall. Only one blob but a good few 3s and 4s.
Seems like we are carrying on as we left off last season though as the winning score for the week was 5 points, achieved by me!! :mrgreen:

A long way to go as always and the question is whether I can repeat my Lesicester-esque performance of last season again! We'll see. Good to see some new predictors although a few regulars missed the first week, maybe being holiday season, some are off the radar at the mo!

Week 2 is up and running for this coming weekend!

Having a few issues with uploading images at the moment as having to use an old laptop so have cut an paste table from excel temporarily.
The table columns read: Position - Name - Weeks predicted - Points
