  HTAFC Prediction League 2018/19 Matchday 16
Posted by: Lord Snooty - 8 hours ago - Forum: Huddersfield Town - No Replies

2 points for a correct result
4 points for a correct score
2 points for each correct scorer
Correct joker doubles your score   Laugh     
Wrong joker result gives you minus 2
Correct Random Badger gives you 2 points Badger

The random badger Badger is used for any random prediction used once in each matchday sequence. For instance, a scorer at a particular match, the number of red cards in the matches or yellow cards or own goals or owt you want really within reason, I do need to be able to check whether it's correct or not. Please don't put stuff like....."Commentator says...."  Rolleyes
The joker  Laugh is played for one match in each sequence and if correct you get double points. So if you've predicted 1-0 and it finishes 2-0, you get 4 pts, but if you've predicted 2-0, that's 8 pts. But if you get it wrong, it's minus 2.
Jokers and badgers are optional. You don't have to play one if you don't want.


Cup games:
In the event of a draw, it's half the points if you've predicted a draw when it gets to 90 mins and the full points if it's still a draw after extra time. Half the points will be awarded for correctly predicting the winner of the match if it goes to penalties.

Random score generator: I will be using the random score generator again for those who miss predicting, so we shouldn't get some people too far behind that after missing a couple of weeks they lose all interest, because I know it's not easy getting on here every week.
To be fair to everybody, this is going to be like, say if three people in one week miss their predictions, the first one in the table will be given all 0-0, the second one down the line will get 1-0 and the third will get 0-1 and so on, like if there's four missing the 4th will get 1-1, then 5th 2-1, 6th 1-2. and if there are so many missing, might as well pack in. Wink
And if you miss two weeks on the trot, I'll stop until you come back on again. Not doing it for half a season like I did last year.  Rolleyes

I gather I'm not the only one who's had problems viewing this site recently..... don't know exactly as I've had problems viewing the site!
I visit 99%of the time on my android phone using chrome. Recently it's only given me half a page, literally sliced down the middle, top to bottom.
Just downloaded dolphin and all looks fine on here, but don't really want to switch browsers permanently, so is there any work going on to fix this lil gremlin please, mods or people much cleverer than me??

Exclamation Prediction League The Real week 14 !!

NEW SMILIES/BALLS

Smartass   Bonus ball stays the same
Tongue  Score Ball , .. This is the new free to use Ball , play it on a game that you think both teams will score in ! (Replaces the Insurance ball)
Doh  Gamball, the I can't look image suits this ball more than any other ........

New Scoring System

Incorrect Result =  0 point
Incorrect Result (Bonus Ball) = - 2
Incorrect Result (Gamball) = -3 * changed from -4

Score Ball = 1 added Point if both teams score.  !

Correct Result = + 2 points
Correct Result (Bonus Ball) = + 3 * Changed from +4
Correct Result (Gamball) = +4  * Changed from +8
Correct Score = + 4 points
Correct Score (Bonus Ball) = + 6  * Changed from +8
Correct Score (Gamball) = +8   * Changed from +16

As you can see the incorrect scoring has not really changed apart from a wrong Gamball you now gain a point if you get it wrong, was -4 now its -3.

The Insurance Ball has been replaced completely by the Score Ball. (see above)

The changes only kick in if you correctly guess a result or a correct score,
The Bonus has slightly changed with a correct result down one to 3 instead of 4 points
And a correct score Bonus down two to 6 instead of 8 points
The Gamball where the big Issue was has a huge change, a correct result will now be just 4 points down from 8
And a correct score on the Gamball will be now just 8 points instead of 16 !!
This is a 50% drop on the Gamball thus ensuring people who get lucky with just this one result/score does not affect the predictors who predict well to suffer.
This should also keep things so much tighter and keep the Interest going for most people right to the very end,
Also the third from bottom of the premiership will play off against the third in the table from the Championship to keep even more excitement going, they will have to predict through all the Playoffs and the winner obviously takes their place in the Premier League the following season   Thumb up

Beefy, Bomber, Zinman & SCO   Thumb up


If you do not predict,...........
If in your league everyone scores above zero you will receive Zero points,
However if in your league the person with the lowest score is below Zero (eg -4) you will score -5 and receive your first strike, Remember 3 strikes and you're out.

All scores must be in before MIDDAY SATURDAY,(For The Early Kick Off If Applicable) If the early kick off is missed the rest of your predictions must reach us by 2.45pm or none will be counted.

Anything later unless it is a Major error will NOT be corrected. It is as much your responsibility to check your scores as much as it is ours to try and score them correctly.

  Albania v Scotland - "last chance saloon for Ecky"?
Posted by: 0762 - 14-11-2018, 17:23 - Forum: International Matches - Replies (4)

As this 1st NL fixture of two looms ever closer I think the question now arises that if Ecky cannot motivate this Scotland team to "raise their game" in Albania then is it a case of "binning him" asap as the "do minimum" was ultimately to top this group B and move on to a play off spot. If he cannot achieve that v teams that Scotland has the players/player squad to defeat the likes of Albania or Israel, surely it's already time for him to move on and forget any "old pals act". Even a draw would do me but the pre-requisite must be the Scotland team performing and playing well to earn that result and then move on to a "cup final" v Israel in the final group match at Hampden Park.
