Vital Burnley Prediction League-August 09 Update

Vital Burnley Prediction League-August 09 Update

About 30 of our posters are currently playing Vital Burnley's Prediction League 09-10 with the chance to win £50.

After the first month of games and a maximum of 12 points to play for here is the August update.

Vital Burnley Prediction League 2009-10-August 2009 Update

Similar to the performances by the Clarets on the pitch, the Prediction League has also started off well! Some people seem to be using their head, whereas others are clearly totally dominated by their heart.

It could be an interesting battle to see which of these methods will be victorious come the end of the season.

Grimsby Claret is the early leader having achieved 100% from the Everton and Chelsea games to make up for the poor start (0 points from the opening 2 games). BigClaret is the closest challenger at this stage being just one point behind.

The early frontrunners are show below:

Please note all the other players currently have a score of 2 or below and a full table will be provided every 3 months. If you are not in the frontrunners table and want to know your exact score and position, please contact the site at any time.

About the Prediction League

Any new members are still welcome to enter and the Average Points per Game figure(Av. PPG) figure in the tables will allow you to see how you are doing in relation to those who have been predicting from the start.

Remember, to win a prize at the end of the season you have to have predicted at least 50% of our Premier League Fixtures. You get 3 points for the correct result and score, two points for correct result and goal difference but wrong score and one point for the correct result (win,draw,lose) but wrong score and wrong goal difference.

The winner at the end of 2009-10 will receive £50, the runner-up £25 with £10 for third place.

If you want to enter, you simply go to our The New 2009-10 Prediction League forum and register your interest on this thread:

Sign up here to play in 2009/10-You Could Win £50!

Individual threads will then be put up so you can make your predictions for the games played in each month. You can currently predict for the League games in September (Liverpool,Sunderland and Spurs)

Predictions for Cup matches will not be taken into account for the table but could be taken into consideration if there is a tie for the first three places at the end of the season.

Could have sworn I had prediced a defeat at Stoke, a defeat at Chelsea and a win over Everton! Oh well. Memory plays strange tricks. I'll keep my betting slips from now on. :)

Recount! The forum records support my case! :) I probably confused the scorer somehow, by intially casting a 'spoiled vote' for the Stoke game, but then clearly saying 3-1 to them in a subsequent submission, and then rambling on a bit (as usual) in my Chelsea prediction before saying 3-1 to them.

Well played GC :-)

Stewards Enquiry Dale!! lol ;-) By the way Grimsby if you are reading this, you appear to have predicted for Sunderland/Spurs but not Liverpool? Oversight or meant?
08/09/2009 11:09:00
Que sera, Dale. It's all good fun in a good cause. :) And, yes, well played, GC.

Have just had a couple of spoonfuls of cough medicine to see if it will improve my performance and drag me up the table.

I dont believe it! Where in the dickens is my name! I feel a Victor Meldrew moment coming on as I have predicted 4 wins for the clarets and ...........oh..........maybe its right.........

Couch potato - No problem in querying the postings at all - If you think its wrong, give us a shout. A formulated excel spreadsheet may have a digit in the wrong place or something :-) However, the 3-1 at Stoke got you 2 points, the 2-2D with Utd got you 0, the 2-0 v Everton got you 1, the 3-1 at Chelsea got you 1 - Total 4! Happy? :-)

Also, my apologies for the delay in posting this table - internet connection problems are the reason/excuse! :-)
