THE MATCH

SATURDAY 24TH MARCH 3:00PM KICK OFF

[Image: c8f0e1f02feea03b72811b4b50c0f4c0--britis...nesday.jpg] v [Image: nottingem_forest_nottingem_angliya_old_l...k=wMg117qb]

LAST MATCH



Well back to normal as we were well and truly thrashed by Brentford. We were quickly behind after Dawson made a hash of a cross and Da Silva finished. We were quickly 2 down with a quality finish from Marcondes. It was 3 just before halftime as Mbuemo slotted past Dawson as our defending proved non existence. We made a few changes but it didn't really change much and The Bees added a couple of goals towards the end as our defense couldn't be bothered to put a challenge in and made the final score 5-0. Relegation here we come without the help of the EFL.  

THE MATCH



Back to Hillsborough and Forest make the sure short journey north. Forest currently lie in 5th place but have won only once in there last six and will surely get back to winning ways against us Doh Forest did once thrash us 1-7 here at Hillsborough and depending on how the players perform that may happen again Angry Lamouchi is there current manager and he will be hoping to take Forest back to the Premier League. We somehow beat these 4-0 at the City ground with Rhodes getting a hat trick, safe to say that wont be happening on Saturday.

  Hibs v Saint Johnstone, Sat 14 March, KO 3.00pm
Posted by: 0762 - 10-03-2020, 14:34 - Forum: Hibernian - Replies (6)

Well Hibs have allowed their opponents to "creep in " close behind them to possibly "nick" a top six place. Now the "alarm bells are ringing" for me that Hibs are hugely vulnerable in this match due to a clear lack of leadership and character spread throughout this team. One "ray of hope" for me is the fact I observed the highlights of the Saints' recent match v Livingston and they were "jammy" to get away with 3 pts and in light of the number of occasions their defence was breached by the Livy forwards on a shit pitch btw. However, this match is now a "hi pressure game" in which the players have to show some character and durability. They need to win it to enforce their top six position!!! There is no doubt in my mind that Jack Ross has a Hibs formation that will win this match but will he choose wisely and manage the situation properly under such extreme circumstances??? I have my doubts and see this, from a Hibs fan's pt of view, as an absolute "nail biter" mainly because of that observed "lack of character" and leadership that has been exposed throughout this Hibs team. Again, for the umpteenth time, I believe he needs to improve this defence. Adding an element of mid physicality is required IMO in order to protect a fragile Hibs defence. Also apply wise changes to that defence? We'll find out soon enough if the correct decisions and solid leadership are applied in order to stave off a potential season ending implosion.

To publicly prove how unsuccessful I am here are my Cheltenham tips for today:-

1.30 Elixir D'ainay - each way

2.10 Notebook

2.50 Quarenta - each way

3.30 Pentland Hills and Supasundae - both to win, one will!

4.10 Benie Des Dieux - but back Lady Buttons each way at 20/1

4.50 Espoir De Guye

5.30 The Hollow Ginge and Anteros each way

So now you know the ones to avoid.

Exclamation Prediction League Week 27 !!! Gamball Friday !!!
Posted by: Beefy 1965 - 10-03-2020, 00:09 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (30)

[Image: luFuYYf.png?1]

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.

Get the feeling in about two to three weeks all sorting activity in this country will be stopped for a period of time, Italy has suspended all football, Six Nations is now off until the Autumn and suspect we are about to get hit for the next few weeks.

Thanks for taking a look. I'm here to ask for some help with some research I'm doing and want to ask if anyone would be willing to spend 10-15 minutes answering some questions on responsible gambling (UK markets)?

If you can help, all I need is some basic information and your opinions on the topic areas I ask about. The link is below (microsoft forms) and it's can be filled in on laptop, tablet or phone. Please be as detailed in your answers as you can.

  Prediction League Results/Tables Week 26
Posted by: bomberbrown1968 - 09-03-2020, 11:03 - Forum: West Bromwich Albion - Replies (7)

Player Pts CS CR GB BB SB
Themaclad 24 2 4 10 3 1
Bomber 19 2 3 5 3 1
Derby 16 1 3 5 6 1
B.B.B. 10 0 6 -3 3 0
Sanjay 10 2 4 -3 -3 0
A.A.A. 9 1 2 NP 3 0
St Charles 6 0 4 -3 3 0
Beefy 6 1 2 -3 3 0
Zinman 4 0 3 -3 3 0

A good week of scoring in the PL, and a weekly table that almost mirrors the current league table. Previous long time leader Themaclad takes the win this week with 24 points, courtesy of a CS on the Gamball and points on 5 other games as well. Current PL leader Bomber comes in next on 19 points, he will see his lead diminish by 5 points but he will for sure be happy to be in second spot. Derby is in 3rd on 16 points, he has given himself a real boost in his attempt to escape the relegation playoff spot with a CR Gamball and a CS on the Bonus.

In joint 4th place are BBB and Sanjay on 10 points, BBB scored on 6 games but didn’t manage any CS so this kept his score down, and this is going to see him drop from 2nd spot in the table. Sanjay also managed 6 scoring games and had 2 CS, but missing on all his balls hurt his score, he will stay safely in mid-table. AAA comes in 5th on 9 points, just 3 games produced points including a CR Bonus and like Sanjay his mid table position will be maintained.

The bottom 3 this week are all in the bottom 4 in the current table!! Joint 7th are St Charles and Beefy on 6 points. SCO again failed to get any CS and missed the Gamball, although for the first time this season he forecast a Wednesday loss and duly got a CR Bonus on that game!!! Beefy dropped back to his normal form, scoring on just 3 games including his Bonus but as has been the story of his season he missed on the Gamball. After a few decent weeks Zinman is in 9th and last place this week on just 4 points. He failed to get any CS and made a rare excursion into the Gamball game and lost!!! Derby will close the gap on him, but SCO and Beefy will stay rooted in the relegation spots!!!

Cheers
SCO

Springtime - the days are getting longer, the trees are blossoming* and the prediction season is approaching its usual dramatic climax. Will Beefy's unforgettable last minute collapse be repeated?

It certainly doesn't look like it in the Championship as Twerton's grip on the title seems to be unassailable. Yet another table topping week for him, helped by a maximum on his gamball though oddly he was the only player to get his bonus wrong. Joker came back refreshed from his mid season break to claim second place with Amelia. Joker equalled Twerton's 3 correct scores and had a week's best 7 correct results. Unfortunately one of his 3 fails was the gamball, keeping him off top spot. Amelia's surge up the table since deciding to play with Beefy's balls has been amazing and she was at it again this week, gaining points from all of the balls. This was her 5th consecutive double figure score since changing her policy - could she regret not giving into temptation earlier? She was also the only player to gain the extra scoreball point in a week where goals seemed very hard to come by.

A bit of a gap to Stairs, all alone in mid table on 12 points for the week as he tries desperately to climb off the foot of the table - the gap between him and his fellow strugglers may have helped him.

Not much to choose between the rest. Lady Jane and Snooty seem less determined to avoid last place though they are kept off the foot of this week's table by MightyBrom and BaggieOne.

Twerton will remain way ahead of the rest but the battle for the second promotion place is hotting up with Joker, BaggieOne and Amelia locked in a desperate fight for the lucrative spot (Ok, it's maybe not that lucrative ...in fact it's utterly worthless but just think of the bragging rights...they're equally worthless). MightyBrom appears to be self-isolating in mid table but a couple of good weeks could still bring him into contention and at the bottom Stairs, Lady Jane and Snooty are having their own private battle to avoid the shame ofthe wooden spoon.

*At least here in California - I suspect things might be rather darker and damper in Blighty.
