OPC Football Predictions League

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.

nice idea :)

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 :)

here are mine for today...

Saturday, 6 August 2011

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).

In the future 3 leagues of predictions will be quite a lot - could we instead choose various matches from each one? Anyhoo, here are various predictions?

Derby 0 - 1 Birmingham, 15:00
Reading 2 - 0 Millwall, 15:00
League One

Brentford 1 - 1 Yeovil, 15:00
Charlton 2 - 0 Bournemouth, 15:00
Sheff Wed 2 - 2 Rochdale, 15:00
Walsall 1 - 2 Leyton Orient, 15:00

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 :p

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.

Updated OP with our first league table.  

 

Mattsimmo was spot on with a lot of score lines so he has gone marching into the lead.

 

As of Next Saturday I will post eight 3 o'clock Saturday fixtures for you all to predict.  So keep your eye on this thread on Saturday afternoon to see what results need predicting as we welcome the start of the Premiership.

 

I've just noticed that other predictions thread pop up into existence.  I assume we are all ok to carry on with this one regardless?

I assume that the fixtures could be selected on a Thursday or a Friday, just to give a bit more notice?

Fair enough.  Every Thursday at 15:00 the fixtures could go up?

Yeah, it doesn't have to be a set time or anything, just if it is a little earlier then it gives a chance for more people to play.

Ok gentlemen.

 

Due to popular feedback suggestions.  We will only feature a coupla games per league.  So it will be three from Premiership, two from Championship, two from League 1 and one from League 2.

 

Round 2

 

Saturday, 13 August 2011


Barclays Premier League


QPR v Bolton, 15:00
Wigan v Norwich, 15:00
Newcastle v Arsenal, 17:30

 

Npower Championship

Barnsley v Southampton, 15:00
Portsmouth v Brighton, 15:00

Npower League One

Chesterfield v Stevenage, 15:00
Yeovil v Oldham, 15:00

Npower League Two

Dag & Red v AFC Wimbledon, 15:00 

 

Remember you have now until 5 minutes before the matches start (2:55 in most cases) to predict the scores.  You don't have to predict them all but obviously you have more chance in getting more points if you do.
