Football Predictions League
Week 02 Review:
Two new players joined us to take the total to 23, and collectively we all pretty much shit the bed until all but two of us had Leicester beating Burnley. The only player to get a treble across 115 predictions was @Brainfreeze and their 1-wager punt at a 1-1 draw in De Voetbal Faijrmers Championaat. Bad news for @boxtoboxelder who went 0-0-0-0-0 across the fixtures, though five others were in the same boat until Dennis Praet’s great bunch of lads did the deed in Leicester.
29Mumsie, @Ynot, and newcomer @dodecalicious each picked up 15 points from their unique goalscorers in the bonus game, putting the house on Chris Wood, Danny Ings (who let four of you down in Week 01) and Aaron Connolly respectively. Vardy and Salah lost eight of you points, while goals from Steven Berghuis and Sadio Mane gave five other players a bonus.
Shoutout to Allan Saint-Maximin who @anon19035908 stuck with after his Week 01 blank, who duly rewarded the birthday boy by continuing to be a Newcastle player and losing him 5 points. Twentynine, 29Mumsie, and Aboynamedgoo are the only players to go 2/2 with scorers so far.
Standings after Week 02:
Week 03 Fixtures:
While they keep staggering the games, an all-day Sunday Sky Sports fest is more fun for me. It’s the four Premier League games from Sunday 27/09 (deadline is Noon) and this week’s lucky farmer’s league is… well, it was very tempting to pick the Brugge derby, as was Angers-Brest, but there was just one cornetto fixture to choose…
- 1200: Sheffield United v Leeds United
- 1400: Tottenham Hotspur v Newcastle United
- 1630: Manchester City v Leicester City
- 1900: West Ham United v Wolverhampton Wanderers
- 1945: AS Roma v Juventus
Predictions and wagers copy/pasted into a reply, (optional) bonus goalscorer by PM or spoiler.
Fire away with questions and shambles, rules are in Week 01 with some clarifications in Week 02.
New entrants are still more than welcome, and will start on FOUR points.
