  Prediction League Results/Tables Week 7
Posted by: bomberbrown1968 - 23-09-2018, 18:52 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (9)

   

Not a great week overall with very few correct predictions sees a 16 point gap between the top and bottom scorers, which should see movement for some in the overall table!!! There were only 7 correct score predictions across 100 predictions in total and the various balls definitely made the difference between a decent score and a bit of ‘mare.

Leading this week with 16 points is SCO!! My superstition of only predicting 2-1 wins for SWFC is paying off nicely this season, I think thats our 4th 2-1 win!!! I was also the only one to predict a Vale win on the Gamball, so picked up points their as well. Zinman came in 2nd with 12 points, picking up points on his Bonus and one of the rare correct scores.

Matt and Worldclass both came in with 10 points, Matt continued his league leading consistent start with 2 correct scores and 3 correct results but was let down by getting both his BB and Gamball incorrect. Worldclass only picked up points on 3 games but got a spot on Bonus and chose not to play the Gamball, which saved him the loss of 3 points!!

Everyone else was in single figures, led by Beefy on 9 points, who managed 5 correct results including the BB but none were spot on, plus he like all the rest bar SCO who played the Gamball lost points on that game. BBB came in with 6 points thanks to full points on his BB but not much else and Amelia ended on 5 points with a correct score BB. Derby ended on 3 points and Sanjay had 2, but despite getting decent correct results the loss on the BB and Gamball for both killed their scores. Finally we have Lord Snooty who had a bit of a ‘mare this week, no correct scores, only 2 correct results and a loss of all his points gained on incorrect BB and Gamball. DD for the 3rd week did not predict, get in touch mate and tell us you are ok!!!!

Cheers
SCO

   

While the top 2 and bottom positions stayed the same the mid table had their own little game of musical chairs as 3rd down to 9th all changed from last week.

Matt continued with his consistent scoring to increase his advantage at the top, but only by a solitary point, to Beefy in 2nd.
Zinman in 3rd and SCO in 4th were the top two scorers this week and as a result moved up two and four places in the league respectively and are only a handful of points back from another move upwards.

BBB down two in 5th lost not only his position but also some costly points on those around him, as Worldclass climbed three into 6th to sit just behind.

Snooty suffered a slide of three into a share of 7th with Sanjay also dropping a couple from last week.

Derby, now the not so proud owner of a relegation place, made up the quartet of sliders in the league to sit in 9th, while Amelia couldn’t make it three decent weeks in a row and lost vital points on those above to remain at the bottom of the table.

Bomber.

   

The wheels appear to have fallen off the Championship wagon. Last week was the lowest scoring week of the season....but this week managed to make it look good. Nobody in double figures, no successful gamballs and our first negative score - at least everyone suffered so there shouldn't be any major changes in the league table. Wins for the mighty Albion and Leicester produced most points with the West Ham/Chelsea game proving the most costly (after the gamball of course). Stairs, BaggieOne and 4eva would have gained even more pleasure than the rest of us (apart from SCO, obviously) from that massive club from Witton's latest shambles, all of them getting that score spot on.

It may have been a bad week but the table for this round has a familiar look to it. The top 2 places are taken by the early season pace setters, Themaclad and Turkeydinner, with Themac taking top place by virtue of his 2 correct scores and helped by the week's only bonus maximum. In a difficult week, Turkeyd got an impressive 5 correct results, including his bonus, but the lack of correct scores cost him top spot. Stairs crept into 3rd place, another player with 5 correct predictions but lost out on both the gamball and his bonus.

Only 2 points separate the next 4 and Quantum at least avoided a zero points week by not playing the gamball - how wise.

Which brings me to the first negative score of the season - well played Joker! Just 2 correct results and a clean sweep of wasted balls gave him minus 1 for the week - oddly though he doesn't take last place due to Spireitematt's 2nd no-show.

Zin.

   

Not a lot to say after a less than spectacular week in the championship as it ended virtually “as you were” last week.

The small advantage in points did allow our front two Themaclad & Turkeydinner to consolidate their positions of 1st and 2nd in the league, with the former becoming the first predictor across the two leagues to pass the century mark.

Identical tallies for 4eva and Bomber as they remain locked in a share of 3rd for the third week running.

Quantum in 5th lost ground both on those above him and those below him as BaggieOne and Stairs, who kept up his 100% incorrect Gamball record, shared 6th spot.

Spireitematt kept hold of 7th despite his no show, while Twerton did put himself within touching distance in 8th and eased further away from our wooden spoonist Joker who actually managed to score less points than he did when he missed two weeks predicting earlier in the season.

Bomber.

Just to let you know Matt will be back. It turns out he has work commitments that are taking up his time at the moment.

Their fans singing 'you're just a Dinosaur' was one of the more embarrassing things today and you know what, I bloody agree with them. We have taken a thousand backward steps since the Paul Cook days both in quality and style of play.I found myself shouting 'Hooof' every time we launched it .
Steve Watson ,another progressive young manager ,has Gateshead playing slick attractive football on nowhere near the budget that MA has enjoyed.We are a horrible team to watch and this cannot go on much longer .I know I've said there's no point in sacking him because the idiots at the top are rubbish at recruitment but after today honestly believe they need to get rid and try yet again to get someone in who can recreate the good times,surely they'll get it right one day ,christ I'd even have Jack Lester back rather than watch that shit we witnessed today .

  Peter Houston
Posted by: turkeydinner - 22-09-2018, 22:47 - Forum: Morton - No Replies

Greenock Morton Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Houston as assistant manager on a two-year contract.

A former Albion Rovers, Falkirk, and Dumbarton forward, the 60-year-old enjoyed spells as first-team manager at both Dundee United, with whom he won the 2010 Scottish Cup, and Falkirk.

New Ton boss Jonatan Johansson was keen to add experience to his backroom staff and identified Scotland Under-21 coach Houston as the ideal fit after meeting with prospective candidates.

  V Motherwell
Posted by: turkeydinner - 22-09-2018, 12:01 - Forum: Aberdeen - Replies (6)

Motherwell have won just one of their last seven trips to the Pittodrie Stadium in the Scottish Premiership (D1 L5), a 2-0 victory in their last visit in November 2017.

Aberdeen have gone three league games without a victory (D2 L1); they last had a longer such run without a win within a single season in October 2015 (five games).

Motherwell have won two of their last three away league games (L1), as many as their previous 13 combined.

Niall McGinn has been directly involved in nine goals in his last eight league games for Aberdeen against Motherwell (four goals, five assists).Aberdeen have won all but one of their last seven matches against Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership, a 2-0 defeat at Pittodrie in November 2017.



"Bogey team" for the Dons and they seem to be "Up" for matches against Rangers and Aberdeen in a huge way, their physicality is a problem and the likes of Shinnie can be negated (rather than the usual weak link of Considine)

Debut possibly for James Wilson, hoping for really good things

If you ever read a busy Dons forum you`d believe we are on a worse roll than Spurs/Burnley and that McInnes is worse than Allardyce and Donald is worse than Mike Ashley, some of the names suggested as a replacement don`t mention

Bryan Robson, Jimmy Case, David Batty, Paul Ince, Nicky Butt, Paul Davis , Peter Reid ,even Carlton Palmer!

Where has the great English midfielder gone? The guy who would go 110% into a tackle, the guy who could win the ball, intimidate the opposition and help rally a side
I truly hope that lots of English lads brought of on Keane, Makelele, Vieira and even Kante are inspired to do the same job rather than try and be the next Messi/Ronaldo

if the best this country has is Eric Dier and Jordan Henderson then it`s a huge worry, I like Jack Cork but again he`s not a patch on the top line
Sadly most of the defensive midfielders, workhorse midfielders or box to box in the EPL are foreign with dare I say most being African heritage

in a "What if " situation this country had a player of Robson or Keane`s ability at the last WC, it would have made such a difference

  Team For Saturday
Posted by: bluepooch - 21-09-2018, 20:40 - Forum: Chesterfield - Replies (4)

So now the revolving door has temporarily stopped at least until Monday Ill have a go at trying to second guess MA's team selection.
3.5.2 or 5.3.2

Jalal
Talbot
Nelson
Hollis
Maguire
Binnom Williams
Carter
Smith
Weston
Denton
Hines

Subs:
Shaw
Burton
Rowley
Muggleton
Kayode

I'm assuming Weir wont figure and not sure if Evans will be out altogether.
I'm hoping Smith and Weston will pull the trigger and give us some firepower or MA might be staring down the barrel and facing the bullet.(yes I know its Wesson but its a good try).
The only ones missing who aren't injured or transfer listed are Amantchi ,Rawson and Wakefield ?

He`s a decent coach Sean Dyche, does know his stuff, though you will never get Guadiola style football or Sacchi tactical nous he can do a job and pretty well, impressed what he did at Watford before they heaved hoed him for a big name who did awful

I like Burnley, they have sort of this mainly UK and ROI squad with a small splatter of International talent unlike watching your average English Champions league of nations team
Nice team of solid pro`s in there with some who have surprised us just how well they can do

So whats going wrong?

Too much European focus? Surely Aberdeen, İstanbul Başakşehir and Olympiakos aren't going to ruin your season?

Nor is having every English Goalkeeper on the edge of the national team, they do have lots of goalies at Burnley mind

One of the possible reasons for not much success this year is the over reliance on the ball of longtitude towards Chris Wood, he`s often be deployed as lone striker or besides Vokes or Barnes with the same tactics
The alternative player Vydra offers something different, has pace, scores goals, cost a few quid and has hardly had a sniff only cameo appearances where he has looked more enterprising than the three mentioned names

Pretty much it`s been the same with Steven Defour since his arrival where the splendidly talented Belgian is overlooked for Ashley Westwood

  A Must read
Posted by: Worldclassalbion - 21-09-2018, 11:02 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - No Replies

At a recent Black Country Derby, Darren Moore aka BIG DAVE goes into the Baggies changing room to find all his players looking a bit glum. “What’s up?” he asks.
“Well, we’re having trouble getting motivated for this game. We know it’s important but it’s only Wolves and we can’t be bothered, they’re shite”.
Darren looks at them and says, “Well, I reckon I can beat these by myself, you lads go down the pub.”
So Big Dave goes out to play for the Albion by himself and the rest of the Albion team go off for a few beers. After a few pints they wonder how the game is going, so they get the landlord to put the television on. A big cheer goes up as the screen reads “Albion 1 - Wolves 0” (Moore 10 minutes) he is beating the Dingles all by himself!

Anyway, a few more pints later and the game is forgotten until someone remembers “It must be full time now, let’s see how he got on.” They put the teletext on. “Result from The Hawthorns WBA 1 (Moore 10 mins) - Wolves 1 (Jimenez 90 mins)
They can’t believe it; he has single-handedly gotten a draw!! They rush back to Hawthorns to congratulate him. They find him in the dressing room, still in his gear, sat with his head in his hands. He refuses to look at them. He says, “I’ve let you down, I’ve let you down.”
“Don’t be daft, you got a draw, all by yourself. And they only scored at the very very end!” the players say.
To which Big Dave replies: “No, no, I have, I’ve let you down... I got sent off after 12 minutes”.
