Latest Prediction League Table up to End 2009

Well we delayed publishing our latest Prediction League table whilst we all waited to hear the future of our now disgraced former manager, Owen Coyle.

Since he has now jumped ship for Bolton, this seems as good a time as any to provide an updated table.It will also give us something to digest today with no match to go to following the postponement of the Stoke match at Turf Moor.

So here is the latest table summarising all League games played this season up to the end of 2009.



Claret Dale now takes up the story and reviews the current standings:

We have a new leader with Big Claret removing Programme Collector from top spot. This may have something to do with Programme Collector missing 75% of the predictions rather than the talent of Big Claret. That being said, 8 points are not a bad return for the month - Well done Sir!

I would also like to ensure visitors to the site that there is no funny business taking place with three members of the Sheffield Clarets currently occupying the top 3 positions. This is purely coincidence and if their predictions of last season are anything to go by, the lofty position will not last. This however does not apply to Crosspool who, as previously mentioned, will win this league the more we struggle in our battle for survival.

As previously, If you have any queries - please email Phil or myself.

Bit worried about programme collector, he has not been seen on the site in sometime.Hope he's OK,might send him an email and find out the crack. What am I doing in the top 10? I haven't predicted a defeat yet!! :-)
turfmanphil
Can't believe I have got 6 correct and am languishing at the bottom of the table lol. I can only see one way for me given that for the first half of the season I predicted them all to be wins for the clarets and now I am doing the reverse...simples I am useless at this!
VinRogue
Very unhappy with my own performance and still considering sacking myself or even approaching someone else to make my decisions. For now, I am concentrating on the job in hand and focussing on my next prediction away at Old Trafford.
RickersTwickers
:-) As always - Please check your results and if you think they are incorrect - let me know.
Claretdale
4TH but joint second on points impressed with myself.
Grimsby Claret
I see Barnsey has shot up the table and think I am right in saying that this has involved him in predicting defeats, for example at Ewood. I hope we won't now be hearing Coyle say at a future press conference that he was undermined by negative comments in the local media. :) Meanhwile I remain ahead of VR and RT. :) :)
Couch Potato
How do you join in with this?
ClaretClaude
Er, I seem to have missed one game compared to other people...can you tell me which this was, as I am pretty sure I predicted for all, Dale, cheers! By the way - I have catapulted up the table! :-)
whentheballmoves
CC2 not sure really but down the Forum Page thingy is a Prediction Thread have a click in there and we just post our predicted score. ClaretDale is the main man on this and will no doubt point you in the right direction, i am sure you will be able to join in, maybe you will not be aloud to win the huge cash prize as that is earmarked for Sheffield....tic lol...only joking lads....good luck. Plus your predictions say a lot about you...be warned I have predicted 18 straight wins for the Clarets and now I have turned my season around!!!!!
VinRogue
You definitely missed one Barssey,because I remember thinking I wonder why he didn't post a prediction. Will have to check back to check which one it was if Dale hasn't got the answer to hand
turfmanphil
Barnsey - we had this on the last league table predicted :-) The game you missed, if i remember rightly, was the Liverpool game. You also didnt predict against Bham ( I think) but a verbal prediction was given on that one.
Claretdale
CC - Yes VR is correct, If you visit that forum you can predict. I include a Av PPG column to see how you compare with the rest of us as you now will not be able to win the prize because you wont have predicted enough of the games ( I cant remember off the top of my head the quantity we said had to be predicted - but dont think their are now enough left)
Claretdale
Just to advise we have now played more than 50 % of our League games so any new folk wanting to play in the competition will not be entitled to any winnings should they finish in the Top 3 at the end of the season. However why not play along for fun? You never know we might be tempted to give you a consolation prize if you overtake the rest and finish 1st,2nd or 3rd
turfmanphil
If they overtake the rest of us to finish 1,2 or 3 - Those of us that have predicted the majority of games need shooting! :-)
Claretdale
Exactly!! :-)
turfmanphil
I posted a 3-0 defeat for the Liverpool game about three times, but it kept coming up with some error message or other, so I gave up, meaning to do it "later", but forgot. Can I beg clemency, please, given it's just once, and it IS me?! :-)
whentheballmoves
As it was the Liverpool game surely you would plead for Ray Clemency ?
RickersTwickers
I'll join in for fun then and put you all to shame ;)
ClaretClaude
Very good, Rickers! :-)
whentheballmoves
Barnsey I think we would have to put this to a poll and my vote is for RT his post was funnier than yours...clemency my ar@@!
VinRogue
I dont think we can give you the point for the Liverpool game mate - If we give you the point, we open ourselves up for everyone giving 'post-match' predictions.
claretdale
I think it's a major talent that I've got over 50% of my results 100% wrong but still find myself at the top of the table!
bigclaret
I hear Couch Potato intends to predict tactically in future so we are now engaged in a game of virtual staring to see who will predict earliest. The strange thing is that my predictions have proved to be absolute rubbish and show no sign of ever improving and, given that CP seems to have a better idea than me, I fear his new strategy is one that is doomed to failure !
RickersTwickers
Predicting results is hard in general - I suppose if it was easy we would all be a lot richer, and the bookies would be poorer! :-)
claretdale
Really impressed with how much I have climbed the ladder :-)
