  Hibs v Celtic, Sun 21 April, KO 12.30pm
Posted by: 0762 - 16-04-2019, 15:11 - Forum: Hibernian - Replies (4)

Well the Hoops and Lenny come to town possibly looking to win the Premiership title for the 8th consecutive time but Hibs are in fine form and still unbeaten in the league since PH's arrival at ER. This should be quite an intriguing match with Hibs reasonably well organised defensively and Rocky looking very assured indeed. Celtic will be stronger with various players gradually returning to full match fitness.

  Four One
Posted by: Devongone - 16-04-2019, 13:17 - Forum: Chesterfield - Replies (10)

Four one. I just wanted to say the words. Four one.

A couple of years ago, when teams were sauntering through our midfield at will both Dancing and I suggested putting a defender into midfield. We suggested Sam Hird or Laurence Maguire. We mentioned Maguire because he could tackle and liked to try to use the ball. Now it seems to have happened. I wonder what the opinion is of him in this new role.

I suggested it on Bob's at the time Dancing and I were talking about it and as I remember the idea was generally laughed out of court.

Exclamation Prediction League Week 33 !! GOOD FRIDAY ALERT !!
Posted by: Beefy 1965 - 16-04-2019, 02:37 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (23)

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.


1/ Zinman
2/ ST Charles Owl
3/ Derby                            
4/ WorldClass
5/ Sanjay
6/ Beefy                                                      
7/ DD *3rd Strike
8/ Amelia
9/ BBB 
10/ MattWBA
11/ Snoots                   

1/ Joker
2/ Spireite
3/ Stairs
4/ Quantum
5/ Baggieone
6/ 4eva
7/ Bomber                          
8/ Twerton
9/ Themaclad
10/ Turkeydinner
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.

  Prediction League Results/Tables Week 32
Posted by: bomberbrown1968 - 15-04-2019, 22:10 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (12)


Well as we approach the run in for the last few weeks of predictions we certainly can’t accuse anyone of putting on their flip-flops and heading for the beach!!! Double figures reached by every player, even though no one got any points on the Gamball!!!! A stellar set of predictions from top to bottom this week!!

Leading the pack for the second week on the trot is Beefy, he has firmly put himself in the Zinman Camp of not playing the Gamball and while that is inching him closer to the leader I fear he will need to gamble a bit on the Gamball to make up any real ground!! He got a spot on Bonus and scored on 7 games but stalking him once again not far behind we find Zinman in 2nd spot on 18 points. Zinman too scored on 7 of the games so yet another solid scoring week for the leagues most consistent predictor!! In third place is Lord Snooty, probably too little too late but he is playing for pride and doing it very well, scoring 17 points!!

Sanjay comes in 4th on 16 points, courtesy of a CR on the Bonus and one of 7 players to pick up the extra point on the Scoreball. Derby finished 5th on 15 points which included 6 scoring games including the Bonus. Next comes a trio of players on 13 points, each with slightly different overall aspirations. BBB got a spot on Bonus but missed his other balls and his push to try to catch the leaders may still be alive but has taken a hit this week. SCO probably has now seen his title chase end this week even though he scored the most Correct Results with 7. And the third of the 13 point trio is Amelia, staring relegation in the face this result was solid but not likely to be enough to save her!!

The bottom 2 this week both finished on 10 points, both scoring points on at least half the games but both missing the Gamball and Scoreball. Looks like midtable for Matt but the playoffs loom large for Worldclass



Zinman has seen his lead at the top clipped from 18, to 16, to 13 this week. At that rate he’s not going to be caught with the number of weeks left, but there can be no complacency as Beefy looks set to keep the pressure on right to the last week returning a 20+ week again. It’s surely no coincidence that our top 2 are also the lowest predictors of the Gamball, I can see a Summer of changes to it again just around the corner.

BBB maintains 3rd thanks to a super Sunday but will need a couple of above average weeks if he has any intentions of staging a late challenge to the top 2 and even more so for SCO who’s looking like he’ll have to settle for a top 4 spot, though he has got another distraction to soften that blow if you read the Cup thread.

Only 4 points cover the next 3 positions and they seem to change on a weekly basis. Sanjay is the one to hold 5th this week climbing a place above Derby by just a solitary point, while Matt is only another 4 points back in 7th. If these 3 positions were in the Premier League they’d be worth millions, but in our Prediction league it’s all about bragging rights and pride.

Worldclass will almost certainly be extending his season as he’ll predict to try and save his Premiership status as he sits in isolation in the relegation play-off spot 32 points away from safety and 32 away from our bottom 2.

Amelia and Snooty are looking for a major miracle and are sadly “as good as down” with so few weeks left and so many points casting them adrift at the bottom, it’s time to start preparing for life in the Championship next season.



Last week only one player managed to get double figures - this week everyone did! Only one fixture proved difficult to predict but, as it was Beefy's selection for the gamball, it did cost a few players vital promotion points. Unusually we have a full set of correct bonus balls spread across a range of selected games - Beefy went far too gentle in his choices this week.

So, on Masters weekend - did I ever mention that I once played Augusta?- this week's green jacket goes to.......(quick double check by a confused scorer)....Joker. Yes, Joker. The last person to post his predictions - I have rechecked and they were on time - Joker was the only person to score on the Gamball and with a week's high of 2 correct scores heads the table with 22 points. Quantum maintained his march to promotion with an incredible 9 correct result predictions. The only match he got wrong was the gamball but as he didn't play it it really didn't cost him. Could he be edging his way to the Championship title? Third place goes to Bomber - several week's of decent scoring for him but surely the best he can hope for is a play off spot, just like the Baggies.

15 points was enough to secure him the top spot last week, but Stairs has to settle for mid-table joined on that score by 4eva and Baggieone. Twerton falls just a point further back but is kept off bottom place by long time Championship leader Themaclad, though with 13 points his chances of promotion won't have been damaged too much.

Nearly there guys - thanks for sticking with this for so long.

Now, back to my Augusta round.......


No positional changes to report and with only 9 points between the best and worst score you can see why. However, 7 of those points were between our 2 runaway leaders in this weeks scores who are now set to fight it out for the title and promotion as champions. Themaclad clings onto top spot, a position he has held for all 32 weeks, but by the smallest of margins as just a solitary point back, Quantum is closing in to take over.

Bomber strengthened his grip on the promotion play-off spot in 3rd and holds a healthy, thought not unassailable, 20 point cushion over the pack headed by Twerton who is still close enough with, by my calculations, 3 maybe 4 weeks left of the season.

7 points back to Stairs who needs the 2 above him to falter if he is to mount an unlikely late charge towards that 3rd spot, as does 4eva who’s another 4 points further back, 30 odd points away from that last chance saloon play-off spot.

BaggieOne is playing for pride and unlikely to move up or down from 7th spot, while Joker certainly still has his pride well and truly intact as he turned in an impressive week  to be just 3 points shy of his double ton.

No trophies for Rangers this season and the lying King acting like a shady car salesman in promoting why Rangers are worth it - dominance of Scot footie coming soon and the "signs" are good! Sure, there appears to be some improvement but they are still a long way off knocking Celtic "off their perch" for obvious reasons!!

In a worldwide study in cooperation with the Waseda University from Japan we are examining the behavior of the so called satellite fans. These are fans, who are interested in sport leagues, teams or athletes in foreign countries.
Our current task is to spread the study to sport fans from the United Kingdom.

I would appreciate, if you participate in our short survey. Thanks a lot. Joshua.

  HTAFC Prediction League 2018/19 Matchday 38
Posted by: Lord Snooty - 15-04-2019, 00:33 - Forum: Huddersfield Town - Replies (9)

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 t'other year.  Rolleyes
