  Merry Christmas And A happy New Petition !!!
Posted by: Beefy 1965 - Yesterday, 16:09 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (12)

So guys Merry Christmas  Thumb up
And so to the important stuff  Wink

It may have come to your attention especially those in the prediction League that I have Predicted WBA to lose every game this season

We have played 22, lost just once all because of me and my superstitions and you all have me to thank for WBA's surge to the TOP !!

So in the interest of fair play I am asking you all to be humble and help me get a Petition signed for the scorers of the Prediction League to re-instate some points that I have deliberately lost to help our great team.

All you need to do is answer below with yes Beefy or No Beefy and any Majority will then be forwarded to the three Idiots, I mean Three wise men who do the scoring in Legally giving me back my points that they already know I deserve.

There was a clause when the prediction League began that I sent to the three erm !! Wise men and stated I was going to do this all three signed and returned it to me and agreed points will be returned if WBA keep winning, it now seems the are reneging and refusing to comply  Confused

Here in the small print are their signatures agreeing to this .....

So do you agree as members of the prediction League team to go along with my Policy of agreeing to return any points If WBA's winning steak is down to my superstition of predicting them to lose ...

Signed Bbrown, Signed ZinnyMan, Signed Sco

I'm sure all of you who are Law abiding Citizens will agree and sign below YES BEEFY

Again in the interest of fair Play I would accept around 75% of the points returned incl gamball games that's a total of 60 Points (40 Accepted)

Thanks

Posted by: Lord Snooty - Yesterday, 14:14 - Forum: Huddersfield Town - Replies (1)

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

Exclamation Prediction Week 17 !!! Last One Until January 11th

SMILIES/BALLS

Smartass  Bonus Ball
Tongue  Score Ball, Free to use Ball , play it on a game that you think both teams will score in !
Doh  Gamball,

New Scoring System

Incorrect Result =  0 point
Incorrect Result (Bonus Ball) = -3 * Changed from -2
Incorrect Result (Gamball) = -3
[/color]
Score Ball = 1 added Point if both teams score.  !

Correct Result = +2 points
Correct Result (Bonus Ball) = +3
Correct Result (Gamball) = +5  * Changed from +4
Correct Score = + 4 points
Correct Score (Bonus Ball) = +6  
Correct Score (Gamball) = +10   * Changed from +8

As you can see the incorrect scoring has not really changed apart from a wrong Bonus this will be now scored at -3 instead of -2 the reason for this are the gains on the new Gamball scoring you will make (see below) in the hope this encourages you to use it most if not all of the time.

So to the Gamball, the use of the Gamball was tactically not used in some cases last season as the gains we not considered to great compared to the losses, it's for this reason we have decided to change the scoring, The loss will stay the same at -3 but the reward will be a correct result will go up by one from 4 to 5 points and the correct score will go up by 2 from 8 to 10 points !!!
Just a reminder you DO NOT have to play the Gamball if you dont want too, the score will then be marked normal.  Thumb up


Again 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.

  Celtic v Hibs, Sun 14 Dec, KO 3.00pm
Posted by: 0762 - Yesterday, 01:45 - Forum: Hibernian - Replies (7)

So Hibs and Jack Ross travel to Glesca to take on one almighty task to try and achieve any kinda positive result v a Hoops' side that does not lose at home very often. The guys have played reasonably well and arriving at Celtic Park after a great 3-1 result v the Dons that certainly "lifted spirits" even amongst the Hibs support. Hopefully Hibs defence "holds up" and IMO that depends on what kinda mood Paul Hanlon is in tomorrow afternoon. Just give it their "best shot" and see where it takes us. I'd take a draw even if it was a lucky point earned but I'm well aware Celtic will be after the 3 pts with the title race being currently "too close for comfort".

Ladies feel free to pick your favourite part of your own or if you prefer, your partners anatomy.

It won't be on owt round here that's live or official, but for you lucky beggars that live abroad, you might find you've to pay through the nose to watch a patchy stream on one of these channels.
https://www.livesoccertv.com/match/33363...ield-town/

Er, right, tad disappointing that isn't it?
If you want to pay through the nose and benefit Town, it's as good and reliable as a dodgy stream apparently and only for the price of your first born. Which kind of fits in with Christmas, well loosely.  Some bloke called Herod comes round and collects your subscriptions personally this month, apparently.

https://www.htafc.com/news/2019/december...town-live/

How to get there?
Well, you can try and attack Wigan from the M61 or the M6. The only problem is Wigan has the most uncoordinated traffic lights in the whole country in my opinion, which will turn the last few miles of your journey into absolute purgatory. It took us an hour from the M6 to the ground the last time we tried it, I jest not and they don't exactly fill their ground now do they? Rent a narrowboat on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal from Skipton and set off on Friday afternoon night. Tie it up at Wigan Pier and walk the last bit - you'll get there a lot quicker.

Otherwise it's about 20-25 minute walk from the train station(s) and the pubs there-about that sell some decent ale and scram.

If you want to know anything else .....

Extra! Extra! read all abaht it!

So ..... Who ate all the pies?

Wigan is famous for ...... their pies, did ya not know that? Did ya not?
Just ask Mrs. Tweedy, she'll put ya reet on that one, in fact, she'll probably put ya reet in one.

The Top 10 Pies in Wigan
[Image: hudds4-2-500x383.jpg]

Heinz Baked Beanz


and Rugby League, oh and Athletic winning the FA Cup against the Blue Mancs and disappearing up Dave Whelan's exhaust pipe immediately afterwards. He then handed the reins over to, er, some younger relative or another in a blatant act of nepotism, before finally seeing sense and putting someone else in charge of his inheritance stash. Everything seems to be going well now doesn't it? What? Oh!


3 Amigo's and all that.
Wigan enjoyed a few more seasons in the Greedy League than we did, but just before it got really, really greedy. The man who says VAR would prove he didn't break his leg falling over a Wembley Worm but was indeed fouled in his last ever game, and he's been moaning about it ever since, had brought Wigan RLFC and Wigan Athletic together in the afore mentioned stadium  that he keeps naming after his current business interests, and spent a few bob to get them both to the top (or as near to the top) as he could. He had Bobby Charlton on board as a director at one point until someone at Old Trafford saw sense and reined him back in.

They brought in 3 Spanish Lads while they were in the 3rd Division, or League One as it is now, who apparently could play a bit, and with the help of a few tins of beanz and a few dinners at Asda they soon trumped (parp) everyone to eventually reach the Prima Donna League, or whatever else it was called back then. You know, back when Shky had just invented football.

To be honest, they don't look much like footballers


Then again, neither do this lot
[Image: 1lX4fXkQwVJCAae7XiNLtRwO5Jekf_aYBzQoRnlv...47-h512-no]

Now before you start thinking your going senile, Wigan beat the Blue Mancs in 2013, I was doubting my sanity too. They were only posing with it, they didn't win it back then. Apparently the ugly one in the middle became their manager for a while. Wonder what he's doing now for a living?  Whistle

Latest news
We've got a new CEO, from Burnalee

Otherwise it's old news but neither of us are kicking up a storm in this division this season.

For Town, Danny Simpson finally got some minutes into his boot laces on Tuesday in a wet and windy game at Charlton. The Wheelies have come off the Chorlton season big time since they got promoted last season with er, Wigan and er, Barnsalee.

“Titchy Pritch has had a further injection in his knee. He’s the type of player who relies on his sharpness."
No news on whether the injections include the use of teaspoons and a fag lighter.

“Super Col is making good process and is back on the grass. He’s not far away, which will be a plus for us. He’s improving by the day.”
It's good to know his choice of recreational substances too.

“Lewis O’Brien, Fraizer Campbell and Jaden Brown are progressing really well."
Which means none of them will start this weekend and not more than one of them will be on the bench.

“We are confident we will have one or two back. Trevoh Chalobah is back available. We’re really pleased to have him back in the group after his fortnight of pulling the talent in Tenerife.”
What?
No, no he's been training in the rain down Leeds Road with the rest of them, honest guv.  Whistle

Last time out
We won, they didn't, but they held on to the Baggies for long enough to get a point out of them.

Backwards Dancing - There's a Ghost in my House

Do ya not know that R. Dean Taylor's classic is still a favourite track of the backwards dancing, aka Northern Soul, fraternity, that used to frequent Wigan Casino and the likes in that there Lancastria. Do ya not?


Now the first time someone told me that, my gut reaction was ... no @!£$ing way, until I got passed humming that opening geetar riff and chorus.

Hmmmm - doesn't seem to be a plethora of Northern Soul insipired bands in that lot. Hell, The Verve had a bitter sweet legal symphony going on with the Strolling Bones for many a year until they all kissed and made up and Mick 'n' Keef told them to keep the royalties anyway????
Wtf was all the fuss about then??

So, are you telling me that Wigan's Ovation are not from Wigan then?
Chuff me, I might as well go Skiing in the Snow. If only Wigan ever saw any.  Doh

Apparently they could also have been known as The Invitations, but I may be wrong there.
Sorry, no, enough backwards dancing music for one thread on this one already, I'm not playing anymore.

Now not picking on anyone in particular from that list but apparently .......

What do you mean Ena Sharples doesn't drink stout anymore? You'll be telling me next Annie Walker has retired too.  Tongue

It really, really could just be a never ending story, just ask Limahl, he'll put ya reet, will he not?

Apparently they, came at 3:30 am, picked him up off the hospital floor and took him back there (I saw it on the tellybox, I'd got up to exercise my prostrate so I thought I'd put the tellybox on), where he can now lie (to his heart's content) in peace, so that's alright then. Tongue

  Blues vs WBA - Match Thread
Posted by: Ska'dForLife-WBA - 13-12-2019, 13:24 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (18)

[Image: DSC-0188.jpg]


The trees are up, the lights are on, and early tomorrow afternoon we're jingling into the festive season with the first of our derbies against Birmingham for the season. From the outside, it's difficult to judge what's going on with Blues at the best of times, as St Andrews seems a permanent circus of farce and failure, with 2019 alone bringing a points deduction, the sacking of an able manager in Garry Monk, the elevation of his assistant Pep Clotet resulting in a bizarre war of words between the two, and the team taking yet another protracted voyage into mid-table mediocrity.

A 3-2 victory at Reading last Saturday suggests they're capable of doing a job on the road, though they followed it up with an abject defeat at home to QPR in the week. For Albion, meanwhile, the trip to Wigan fell well short of our expectations, and we have to hope that we'll be back to full strength and playing with our usual verve for this crucial clash. Derbies being derbies, just about anything could happen, but an in-form Albion should have enough to take the three points.

[b]LAST MATCH




Well, we were heading for 3 points until the ref decided to intervene and award Derby a penalty (lets just say he was wrong). We started the game well and we deservedly took the lead when Fletcher finished first time from Bannan's pass. We had a few more chances but didn't take them and went in 1-0 up. The 2nd half was scrappy with not many chances for either side. We seemed to be on our way to a 1-0 win, until the referee intervened, judging Odubajo fouled Martin, (incorrect decision) and Martin fished from the spot. Odubajo was then showed a second yellow but we managed to see out injury time.

THE MATCH



Up next and a trip to the City Ground. Forest have made a good start to the season and currently are 5th in the table. They are managed by Sabri Lamouchi, who is a former French international who has previously managed Rennes and the Ivory Coast. They have some good player, Grabban, Adomah, Carvalho, Semedo, Lolley, so will be a good test. They will look to hold onto there current playoff position but with it being a tight division, a bad run of results can send you tumbling down the table at a rate of knots.

THE TEAM

Odubajo suspended so Iorfa to RB, and Borner to CB seems the obvious choice. Luongo for Hutch, Reach for Murphy or Rhodes for Nuhiu are all possible changes again.
