Thread: Predictocomp Table 2017-18

    Predictocomp Table 2017-18

    WEEK 1

    Remember it's a marathon, not a sprint. Off to a great start though, it's extremely unusual that half the competitors get double-figures. There were 16 correct scores, which helped, but I'm extremely disappointed that none of us got the Luton score right. Well done to Howoldboy and champion Pete for top-scoring, but also to Alf who was the best of the newbies. These Burnley lot obviously know summat. I won't say much about the bottom, it's too soon, but I'm sure that those down there will be sad to see that The Beast hasn't joined us yet to take up his traditional position. Heh.

    I'll get Week 2 up tomorrow because I'm going away for a few days. Don't forget that new competitors start as EOBs on (this week) 4 points so bring your mates and tell them there's always time to catch up.

    1= Howoldboy.............14
    1= Pete......................14
    3. Alfinyalcabo............13
    4. NZBlue..................12
    5. Piglet.....................11
    6= CUFCAussieBranch...10
    6= Chalky....................10
    6= Griff.......................10
    9. Gards_PNE. .............8
    10= Deezel.....................6
    10= Southblue................6
    12= Cayambe.................5
    12= Crushalime..............5
    14= Lufbrablue...............4
    14= Mullen....................4
    ......................................

    EOB..............................4
    (EOB is the running total of the weekly lowest scores)



    Please check scores etc. Errors can creep in and I'm only human.

    Well, let's see how that went Chalky....

    WEEK 2

    Not that well, Chalky. Not bad though

    Only one in double figures this week, which is a bit more like it, so well done LufbraBlue. Newbies will find that consistency is the key, and when form settles down it will be a bit easier to achieve. There's no need to panic yet (perhaps Mullen excluded). Only kidding.

    Check scores and maths as usual please.

    1= Griff......................(9) 19
    1= Howoldboy.............(5) 19
    1= NZBlue..................(7) 19
    4 Alfinyalcabo.............(5) 18
    5 Pete.......................(2) 16
    6= Chalky...................(4) 14
    6= Lufbrablue............(10) 14
    6= Piglet....................(3) 14
    9 CUFCAussieBranch.....(3) 13
    10 Gards_PNE. ............(4) 12
    11 Cayambe................(6) 11
    12= Deezel.................(4) 10
    12= Crushalime............(5) 10
    14= Southblue.............(2) 8
    14= Gaz...........(EOB4 + 4) 8
    16 Mullen....................(2) 6
    ......................................

    EOB...........................(2) 6
    (EOB is the running total of the weekly lowest scores)

    Its going exactly according to plan, a couple of cheeky predictions to feel the ground then....Bam!!

    Thank you Griff

    gonna be a long season . . . thanks griff

    We're still all trading places and nowt has settled down. Howoldboy top-scored with 9 and hits the top; 4 was the lowest and four of us managed it. Mullen has now scrambled to 2 points clear of EOB at the bottom which says something, but I'm not sure what. Fact is, one brilliant or poor week and bottom could be top or vice versa.

    For the benefit of newbies, the AML is the antipodean mini-league, a competition steeped in history* and it's pretty much dog eat dog in there, no holds barred etc etc. Bragging right around the globe are at stake here so it pretty serious stuff. Here goes then and stand well back.....

    AML (week 3)
    NZBlue..................24
    CUFCAussieBranch..19



    Week 3

    1 Howoldboy..............(9) 28

    8= Chalky..................(4) 18
    8= Lufbrablue............(4) 18
    10= Cayambe............(6) 17
    10= GardsPNE...........(5) 17

    Just seen this and I'll get this week up shortly. I was a bit busy yesterday.

    It's a long way to the finish line , I wish my opponent all the very best in his endeavour to wrestle the title away from me . I await his seasonal complaints and whinging as he tries to hide the fact that he has been very poor in the last year or so , even by his own low standards .

    You see, what happens is, if few folk get scores right, it's a low-scoring week. That's exactly what happened here; only myself and Chalky managed it and we got top scores of 7 and 6, moving both of us up a spot. I'll draw a veil over the rest of the scores, though some strange results conspired against all of us. The Cambridge v Morecambe 0-0 encounter foxed all of us apart from Alf who must have parked his van up in the University grounds for a while to spot that one coming. The fixtures at Sheffield United and Northampton contributed 20 points towards our totals. perhaps indicating that some form is starting to show and that we might improve as the weeks go by. Yeah, right.

    Check points and scores as usual please.

    Week 4

    1 Howoldboy...............(4) 32
    2 Alfinyalcabo.............(5) 31

    Ohhhhh yeahhhh,its going exactly the way that I planned it

    Thank you Griff

    Piglet, sorry, the answer was of course the Ponte Vecchio. Schoolboy error.

    Chalky. "Exactly as planned" this week involved dropping two places. I'd LOVE to see your strategy document.

    Anyway, this week's sermon is on the word "average". The average score this week was exactly 7 which, coincidentally, I achieved. Being average is actually quite good for this competition because a couple of lucky weeks can lift you right up the table. It's correct scores that make the difference so tacticians may want to review which games they choose as score picks, and which they go for as results.

    Top scorers this week were Pete and Deezel who each got 2 scores correct. See what I mean? Deezel rises from 13th to 8th; Pete from 4th to the top spot. Mullen's getting the hang of it, but is still on the bottom. AussieBranch's 3 sees him plummet to 13th. LufbraBlue must be on the holiday of a lifetime having missed two weeks now. Maybe Mullen has him locked in a basement.

    Check everything as usual.

    1 Pete....................(11) 38
    2= Griff.....................(7) 37

    Since we played you it's been down hill step by step getting worse every game.

    Just got a few nebies so I guess the old adage "they need to gel or we're in transition" will be the buzz word.
