Football Predictions League: Week 03

[Week 01 : 02]

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 @Funkhouser 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.

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.

50 points on ASM to score a hat-trick you say? Well as it’s your big bouncy 21st birthday! :cake:

Everyone else: that’s exactly how I’d prefer the preddos to be formatted :+1: Easier to digest when you’re reading 100+

I’ll leave it as who you picked unless you specifically confirm to change it, cos I know on my birthday I was six GnTs deep by 10am @Funkhouser and I don’t want you to have regrets come Sunday :wink:
