OPC Football Predictions League

[ Edited ]
840 Replies 2,462 Views edited 08-12-2011

Well the English football season is nearly upon us once more and I feel this time around we should utilise the excitement and football passion in all of us in this Sport Forum and have our very own predictions league.

 

The four simple rules:


1) Must make a post predicting the results of the days fixtures within the thread.

2) The prediction will only be counted after I have posted the list of fixtures to be predicted for that day, until 5 minutes before kick off.

3) 3 points will be given if the result AND scoreline is correct, and 1 point will be given for each correct result. 0 points for incorrect result (obviously).

4) Only one prediction for each match is permitted.


 

So for example:

 

Spoiler

 

 

Saturday 11th:

 

Chelsea   v  Arsenal

 

Sheffield United    v   Sheffield Wednesday

 

 

Horatio Nelson Posts:

 

Chelsea 2 v 1 Arsenal

Sheffield United 0 v 2 Sheffield Wednesday

 

Arthur Wellesley Posts:

 

Chelsea 1 v 1 Arsenal

Sheffield United 3 v 4 Sheffield Wednesday

 

Actual (pretend) results:

 

Chelsea 0 v 0 Arsenal

Sheffield United 0 v 2 Sheffield Wednesday

 

_________________________________

 

League Table

 

Horatio Nelson  3 points

Arthur Wellesley 2 points

 Each Thursday I will post eight Saturday football fixtures for you all to predict.  So keep your eye on this thread on Saturday afternoon to see what results need predicting.

Re: OPC Football Predictions League

nice idea :smileyhappy:

could be a bit of a mare to work out all the points though including every game.  could be worth doing it like soccer 6 whereby only 6 games are chosen (or maybe 10 or so randon games from the 3pm KO's).  if you're happy working out all the points then that's fine with me :smileyhappy:

here are mine for today...

Yea good point.   Well perhaps next week I will choose just some games from a selection of leagues for you guys to predict.  As it does look a tad overwhelming lol I'm always happy to adapt so any advice is welcome.  Especially as this is the event's debut (although posted rather late which is my fault).

Re: OPC Football Predictions League

Time limit up for today.  So no more entries.  Good job too as there were far too many games to predict lol.

 

Next week as suggested by a few of you.  We will only have a selection of matches from each league to predict.

 

Perhaps 2 from each league?  

 

Anywho half time now in most games so we are half way to finding out the first league standings.  With the Premiership starting next week and time for people to see this event we should have more guys participating too.  

 

I assume you guys want a prize for the winner, but I got a season to think about what I can give you :smileytongue:

Re: OPC Football Predictions League

I assume we will be predicting from all four leagues, i.e. Premier League, Championship, League 1 and League 2?

I'd say an overall number of predictions between 10 and 20 would be about right. Just pick out the particularly interesting and/or difficult games to predict.
