Last reminder!

Entries close TOMORROW, Friday, at 11.59pm

there are more forums this year taking part than ever, a massive 36 already have the 5 minimum, hopeful of one more (at least) getting there.

Remember it's an average forum entry this season, not an individual player competition - where there has been massive entries that means a real representative forum selection. We’ll get this forum average to you next week … and kick-off the game!

Good luck everyone, promised impartiality from my side !

No more entries please, we are now logging everyone onto the big Sunderland automated computer programme. So what happens now? We’ve been asked a few times … so for regulars to recap once again, and for new readers to know what’s going on.

OK, we’ve waited till Saturday morning; in a couple of days (hopefully not much more) we go through all entries, bear in mind patience, it's literally hundreds of them (there always are mistakes such as having 2 Norwichs but no Stoke, having only 19 by forgetting a team etc so we have to get back to individual posters).

Then we make the forum average - every team placed by every contributor has a number position and we take the exact average. If, say, Swansea comes out average of 8.5 place and next West Ham 8.61 then we know we place the Hammers one position lower. We can't predict points gaps of course - if you think there will be a 15 gap between 6th and 7th we can't account for that! But all twenty teams come out in order ... and I will faithfully transfer your average list on this thread as soon as I can. Forums by entry coming up soon too so everyone knows how many on each forum have participated.

All forums will vary, that's the beauty - so we calculate the 'real' table with your vision of a your forum table and we calculate how far every team is out and thus give the points, probably from the second league match onwards or possibly the 3rd game if it takes us that long. A lot of astute guessing this year I can see. But the league positions will of course change all season so our forum table changes all season, and as stated in the initial post we award extra bonus points at the end of every month - and that really helps to sort out the top firing forums!

But it's all just a bit of fun, don't take it TOO seriously! Also we've had cases where a forum has been, well, almost dire one season but the next gone on to medal positions (e.g. Man Utd and Sunderland) !!


A reminder LAST SEASON – the top ten and their final points

Position – Total Points – ‘helping’ bonus points – name of forum + team

An IBM Supercomputer and the Sunderland Black Cat Chat forum admin man and myself have spent quite a few days cogitating on the entries made into the Competition. A couple of entries could not finally be accepted, or did not get back to clarify doubts, but we finally have had a massive 431 entries from 39 Forums from the 40-something invited. Unfortunately 2 of the forums didn't hit the minimum number of entrants and lost out in Round one and a handful didn’t even get one prediction back. But the big, big majority got into double figures and some even passed twenty which makes for a fantastic representation. So the number shown at the side of your forum name is the number of entrants for the forum to get this all important average – if you want to know exact selections for any others (local rivals, soft spots etc) just tell me and I’ll happily post them on here, or even all of them ...




7 The Posh Forum
Peterborough United


• 1 Chelsea
• 2 Man City
• 3 Arsenal
• 4 Man Utd
• 5 Liverpool
• 6 Tottenham
• 7 Everton
• 8 Southampton
• 9 Swansea
• 10 Crystal Palace
• 11 West Ham
• 12 Newcastle
• 13 Stoke
• 14 Aston Villa
• 15 West Brom
• 16 Leicester City
• 17 Watford
• 18 Norwich City
• 19 Sunderland
• 20 Bournemouth





What would happen if ALL entrants were put TOGETHER? – well, here is the combined wisdom of those 431 people. According to all of us, this is how the League table will look after the last game has been played. Apologies if your team is not where you’d like to see it!


441 Combined say:

• 1 Chelsea
• 2 Arsenal
• 3 Man Utd
• 4 Man City
• 5 Liverpool
• 6 Tottenham
• 7 Southampton
• 8 Everton
• 9 Swansea
• 10 Stoke
• 11 Crystal Palace
• 12 West Ham
• 13 Newcastle
• 14 West Brom
• 15 Aston Villa
• 16 Sunderland
• 17 Leicester City
• 18 Norwich City
• 19 Bournemouth
• 20 Watford




And …. here we are after the 1st Week's results! Hardly means anything yet of course …

UPDATE – after game 2

There won’t be an update every week, but as we are at the start there are going to be wild variations, so might be fun to look in. Having said that, the Posh boys have certainly started the new campaign fiercely! Leeds, Leicester and Norwich have also kicked off very nicely, don’t think any of these have been at/near the top in previous seasons, and the best of the new boys are Extreme Football Forum …
But it’s a long, long way to go, don’t get complacent anybody!


The ‘real’ League Table taken from the BBC


1 Man City
2 Leicester
3 Liverpool
4 Man Utd
5 Everton
6 Swansea
7 Crystal Palace
8 West Ham
9 Norwich
10 Aston Villa
11 Arsenal
12 Watford
13 Stoke
14 Tottenham
15 Newcastle
16 Chelsea
17 Southampton
18 West Brom
19 Bournemouth
20 Sunderland
