  2018 Interforum League Championship
Posted by: Dogued - 12-03-2018, 08:25 - Forum: Motorsport - No Replies

Hi everyone!

Testing is done, McLarens are already breaking down, and everyone is gearing up for the start of the 2018 Formula 1 season!

In lieu of any information on Pob and his return to run the Interforum Legaue, I have offered to continue where we left off last season. For those who weren't aware, I'm Dogued over at F1Forum and I picked up the league mid season last year. I carried on the fine work the Pob had begun, but I forgot one simple thing; to have an InterForum league, I needed to actually post the results around or interest wanes! But not this time  8) 

I will use ZDKF1 results after each round to gather data for the following categories:

Interforum League Championship
Each week, the Top 10 players will be assigned points per position. These points will add to their forum's total.
Caveats are:
* Only 2 players per forum in the Top 10
* Equal ZDKF1 points will be split by difference to Pole time. Further ties will be split by Spot On then Top 10. If players have identical results and are the first 2 represnting their forum, a tie for position will be given. If they are fighting for the 2nd representative place, the player who is higher in the ZDKF1 list will be given the place and points.
* Absent results do not count for position.
Defending Champions: F1Forum.org

Interforum Individual Championship
Using the points gained by the Top 10 each round, this will be the total points for the season. Ties on points will be seperated by Wins/Seconds/Thirds.
Defending ChampionTongueob (F1 Technical)

Interforum Qualifying Championship
Individual Championship that uses pole times. This year the points will be: 2 points if your guess is within 0.25% and 1 point if within 1%. Additional 1 point for correct polesitter. As per ZDKF1, driver must actually start on pole on Sunday.
Rankings shall be based on total difference to pole time. Absent times WILL be counted in total time.
Defending Champion: Natny (F1Forum.org)

Interforum ZDKF1 Points Championship
Individual Championship that uses actual ZDKF1 points rather than positional points.
Defending Champion: Tazio (Motorsport Forums)

For those wishing to join up, please head on over to ZDKF1 Sign Up and jump on board! Existing players can log in HERE.
A reminder, if you can please go to your profile on the page and ensure your forum tag is at the start of your name, (i.e. babbleSCO)
and if you can let me know your ZDKF1 nick on this thread, I can make sure nobody is missed.

Good luck to everyone!

  Prediction League Tables Week 27
Posted by: bomberbrown1968 - 11-03-2018, 22:03 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (10)

Mostly positive week for a change!!! Twerton managed to claw his way to the top of the pile with his second best week of the season with 22 points. He got his Bonus Ball spot on, got the right result on the Gamball and his Insurance Ball saved him a point - definitely a ballsy performance!! Derby was right on his heels amassing 21 points from 6 correct scores or results. DD put in a solid week on 13 and as will become apparent in a bit that mediocre score will mean a lot in the overall scheme of things!! Single digit positives for Joker, Matt, Worldclass, Amelia and current leader Zinman!! Below that and bring up the rear are three more of the top 5, Sanjay and SCO on -1 and BBB rock bottom on -2!! And that is where DDs +13 could make a big difference to the league table this week!!

Cheers SCO
Zinman, registering a single point for the week somehow managed to increase his lead at the top by another point as an old rival returned to throw down the gauntlet in the race for the title.

DD climbed two places and back into 2nd cracking the 100 correct predictions in the process to sit 14 points behind our leader as we enter the closing stages of the season.

BBB faltered this week unable to repeat the heroics of last week and dropped back a place to 3rd, although he is only a couple of points away and he was another to pass the 100 correct predictions for the season.

In a week when the bottom half comfortably outscored the top half, Sanjay dropping to 4th and St Charles in 5th did little to suggest that they might be able to put a run together to threaten the top 3.

Derby, 100 correct predictions up, and setting a personal best for his weeks score, was the first of the high scorers from the lower half and as a result moved up into 6th and did put himself just 6 points adrift of 5th.

Last weeks star performer Worldclass is also not far away in 7th, overtaking Amelia in the process as mid table is separated by only 11 points covering four places.

This weeks standout predictor Twerton yet again moved out of the relegation places, up to 9th, showing the kind of fight our boys in the blue & white stripes are allergic to.  Angry

Matt couldn’t repeat his first Gamball success of last week and dropped back again into 10th, but can take heart that he was another to pass 100 correct predictions and achieved it after only completing 23 weeks.

Joker made up a little ground but is in need of a stellar week or two or three to catch his rivals above him.


Well it seems that the possibility of promotion is driving an improvement in some people's predicting ability. This week saw some good scores and, for once, no minusmen. Leading the charge this week is Bomber. Stirred by the sight of the gazelle like Beefy (sorry, but I'm still struggling with that image) surging ahead of him, he heads the table with 18 points despite predicting an Albion win (protected by his insurance). Salop claims second place with 6 correct results, three of them correct scores including his bonus to total 16 points - a remarkable score given that he got the gamball wrong. Beefy keeps his promotion dream alive with another solid performance in third place.
Vic and Stairs made double figures with both predicting the gamball defeat of next year's premier league champions (at least according to a WM dingle) - can Vic continue his form to avoid this year's wooden spoon? (Probably not).

The rest suffered due to believing the Wolves hype (or possibly a more understandable assumption regarding the incompetence of the Vile). Snooty had the fewest correct results this week but rescued his score with 2 correct scores including the bonus but is he starting to wobble after so long at the top? Baggieone will have lost ground in the promotion hunt after a poor week and Quantum's struggles continue but not quite as much as the winner of this week's Alan Pardew award for achieving absolutely nothing, 4eva, whose miserable run in 2018 continues. (Note for Bomber, has 4eva gained as many points as Pardew this year?)

Snooty suffering a rare low scoring week remains in pursuit of promotion and the Championship title as we get to the business end of the season, but his lead is being chipped away at, whether its being chipped at enough remains to be seen.

Beefy is the main challenger to the crown of Championship title winner and sits 25 points back in 2nd while putting some breathing space between himself and the chasing pack for a promotion place.

The pack is re-led by Bomber moving up two to 3rd but still 11 points off one of those much sought after promotion places.

BaggieOne dropped a place into 3rd just three points further back, while 4eva also dropped a spot into 5th and after spending much of the season as favourite for promotion at least, he now finds himself a fairly sizeable 26 points off 2nd spot, although he did pass the 100 correct predictions for the season.

The bottom half of the table stays exactly as it was with Salop and Quantum in 6th and 7th also both topping the 100 correct predictions, leaving Stairs in 8th as the only one still in search of that goal as Vicar in 9th managed it this week but still has a firm grip of that wooden spoon 26 points back.

  HTAFC Prediction League 2017/18 Matchday 33
Posted by: Lord Snooty - 11-03-2018, 21:03 - Forum: Huddersfield Town - Replies (15)

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.
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

  Lowest points
Posted by: 4evaabaggie - 11-03-2018, 12:10 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (3)

Looks like we are going to surpass our lowest points total in a premier league season ......

Currently our lowest is 26, our first year back in the top flight .....

Sunderland have three of the top six lowest scores ........ Portsmouth, vile and Derby make up the rest .....

We could be about to replace Sunderland in one of their slots ....... 24 points, (6th)

I can not see us getting another point ...... usually you get a pressure release improvement once your down ... can't see it happening this year ..... there's just no fight, no spirit, no desire and no pride.

  1874 Northwich
Posted by: themaclad - 11-03-2018, 10:23 - Forum: Other........ - No Replies

When those over worked Prima Donnas in the Premiership complain about too many matches and that they are feeling a little bit tired consider the plight of the NWFL side 1874 Northwich.
Having reached the semi final of the FA Vase which they play the first leg next Saturday, they still have to play in the last 6 weeks of the season 23 league games due to naff weather and games being postponed due to their cup uns, not forgetting these lads still work full time for a living, they won't complain they will just get on and play the game. That's the difference between the bubble and the real world.

  The Relegation battle or not ?
Posted by: Imre varadi - 10-03-2018, 22:00 - Forum: Sheffield Wednesday - Replies (22)

A few ajustments from last weeks post but mostly the same

and here it is last seasons table https://www.fctables.com/england/champio...2016_2017/ dont get depressed yes that is us in 4th position and it will probably be our highest finish for the next few seasons anyway Whistle

we are now concentrating on not getting relegated because i think sneaking the playoffs is way out Whistle and what we see is that Forest were lucky not to go down on 51pts the same as Blackburn only 2 goals better off on -12 .

we are on -12 already Sad and if 52pts was the safest bet then we now need 14pts from 9 games Smartass

Home games

Away games

So now after throwing 2 easier home games away and only taking a miserable point Doh its 4 home games and 5 away in not in our favour

Quite frankly i cant see us getting 10pts never mind 14pts we are going to have to hope and prey that the shite below us keep being shite Whistle

That was pi55 poor today. We went in late and when I heard the team I felt I needed a drink before taking my seat. That line up would have struggled against Matlock never mind a dirty team of long ball specialists like Lincoln and a dodgy ref.
2 back post unchallenged headers ( how many times have we seen that this season, what the hell do we do in training? ) and a player running into our area with no challenge and everybody backing off (how many times again) to kill us off completely.
O'grady really is just crap - no other word for him, he should be put out to grass. Talbot was just awful, McCourt was dreadful, Kellet was somewhere else instead of playing a game of football, Dennis when he came on carried on where O'grady left off. Our passing was just plain shocking. Am running out of adjectives to describe dreadfull so will stop there

JL has taken a massive backward step and there is absolutely no way we will avoid the drop and I believe we will go down bottom. Can he do it for us in the conference next season? The jury is out for me, there was promise a few months ago but the players he brought in are worse than the shite Caldwell brought in and that pains me to say that.

I said at the outset he was the right man at the wrong time, I hate to say I was right but I was - again.
