  2019 WC

I think 2019 World Cup would be awesome. I hope we get a surprise winner like we did in 2017 Champions Trophy. Hoping for an exciting event and already very hyped up. England and India are probably the favorites. Kiwis are in it too, wouldn't count them out, they'd give a good fight.

Exclamation Prediction League Week 21 !!! A Beefy Comeback On The Cards !!

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.

I'm almost 100% sure Myself & the Scorers get the scores added up correctly, From time to time over the season we may get now and again get this wrong, SO IN THE EVENT OF ANY POINTS DISCREPANCIES can i ask all you guys to check your predictions and if you feel they are incorrect in anyway contact me Via PM within a week of the TABLES & SCORES being presented and they will be corrected the following week.
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.

Jeez..... just a couple off his 400th game for the club!
Very good article here:

In these days of player power and petulance, this milestone is hardly ever going to be reached in the top 2 divisions.
Well done Brunty, and thanks Thumb up Thumb up

  2019 Men's World Championships
Posted by: ritchiebaby - 15-01-2019, 16:25 - Forum: Winter sports - Replies (6)

There is a Qualifying Event for these Championships being held in Naseby, New Zealand, from 18 January to 23 January. There are 8 teams entered, including England, who are represented by Andrew Reed (Skip), Michael Opel (Third), Jamie Malton (Second), Tom Jaeggi (Lead) and Gary Tapp (Alternate). This is the same team who gained a very creditable Silver Medal in the B Division of the European Championships in November. On their day they are a match for anyone and are quite capable of earning one of the qualification spots. Good luck to them all as they look to end up as one of the Top 2 teams on 23rd January.

England's first round-robin game is on the 18th against Netherlands, followed on the 19th by Australia and then Poland and Denmark on the 20th. Their other games are against Brazil on the 21st and New Zealand and Korea on the 22nd. The top two teams in the round-robin play each other with the winner qualifying for the full Championships in Lethbridge, Canada at the end of March. The loser then plays against the 3rd placed team to decide the remaining qualifier.

So at home to the holders of the FA Trophy. I would have liked Stockport away but they are away at Harrogate Town instead.

Full draw is

Ramsbottom United or Weymouth v AFC Fylde
Spennymoor Town v AFC Telford United
Carshalton Athletic v Barnet
Chesterfield v Brackley Town
Leyton Orient v Blyth Spartans
Hemel Hempstead Town v FC Halifax Town or Solihull Moors
Salford City v Maidstone United
Harrogate Town v Stockport County

Chance of getting to Wembley again?

Although I have taken a back seat on anything WBA based ATM a few friends have asked me if
any contact info for Fireymouse is available - he used to be on BBC 606 and I know he used to use the Richardson Suite as our path's crossed several years ago. Thanks in advance PP
