Vital Burnley Prediction League Update-August

Vital Burnley Prediction League Update-August

The Prediction League 2010/11 has started off with a healthy number of entrants and some will be happier than others with how their 'season` has started. The first published table of the season is below:



It is RickerTwickers and Dale (Who hasnt cheated honestly) leading the way after 4 games with both managing to predict the correct outcome of all four games. The only other person yet to predict a wrong outcome is TMP, although a prediction was not submitted for the Swansea game. (Editor's Note: Bugger how did I forget that? Probably in hospital at the time!! Would have predicted a draw anyway)

After four games last season, the leader was Grimsby Claret who had 6 points. Barnsey can maybe consider himself unlucky to be three points adrift at this stage, or is this just an indication that in a season where our win % should be higher, more points will be needed for success in the Prediction League?

Last seasons champion, Bigclaret has struggled to get going this season which can mainly be attributed to his lack of faith in Mr Laws. To date, four defeats have been predicted and therefore only 1 point has been gained. Will this change as hopefully the Clarets continue to get more points on the board?

The World Cup Prediction League Champion, Couch Potato, has had a better start, but will hope for more points if he is to have a chance of picking up a second title.

The next update will be published after the match at the New Den by which time the season will be 10 games old. This is a time when the Championship table should be starting to take shape. Will our Prediction League be the same?

As per previously, please check your score and if you feel there has been an error - contact me either on the bottom of this thread of via the vital inbox.

Good Luck with your next batch of predictions!

How the hell did I manage to forget the Swansea prediction? Oh well would have spoilt my record had I done one since I would have plumped for a draw

Have to say TMP I did more than a double check on that one - Must be the first one you havent predicted since time began ;-)

First time here and think it is great but must be more realistic rather than optimistic if I am to maintain, in my opinion, my exalted position.

Happy with my start and to be in amongst some big names at the top of the table. Long way to go though - there are no prizes given out in August.

Am not one for cliches Dale. Wouldn't be seen dead using such parlance so tend to avoid them like the plague. Take each game as it comes is my motto.

The rigours of a successful World Cup campaign seem to have taken toll on my early performance. But it's a long season.

It's a game of 2 halves RT , and it's not over 'till it's over. At the end of the day, someone could come through on the outside rails and sweep the board.

One of these days I will win this blessed thing without predicting a defeat. I just can't bring myself to predict losing a game
