Vital Burnley Prediction League- Final 2011 Update

Vital Burnley Prediction League- Final 2011 Update

Claret Dale provides his regular update on how well we are all doing in Vital Burnley's Prediction League as we enter a new year.


It was a good couple of weeks for the Clarets sparked by that remarkable last 15 minutes at Hull. I still can`t believe that happened and I am nearly as surprised by the points tally we have managed to amass since that game. Below you can see how your fortunes have changed (or failed to change) over the last six weeks.

We have a new leader at the top with 'Dad' managing to collect 11 points from the latest batch of ten games. The refusal to predict anything other than a Clarets win works well when the team is having a successful period.

A number of other 'optimists' amongst those predicting have also scored well since the last update. More points being collected in this update than in any other previously provided this season.

The early season leader has started to falter (as predicted) and now sits tamely in 8th place.

Hopefully the form on the pitch continues and the majority of people can pick up points with successful predictions.

Happy New Year and Up the Clarets!

I just didnt fancy us to go on a run of 5 wins in 6 and this has cost me points - Although I am happy for it to continue being the case!

I almost feel a song coming on , ( to the tune of ' the Ovalteenies ' ) . . . . .We are the optimistic . . . . . . . Happy girls and boooooyyyyyyyys . . . . . . . Course, it's nothing to do with optimism though, more of an astute understanding of the way Eddie's putting this side together and the quality of the opposition. On the other hand it might have something to do with the fact that anyone can beat anyone in this division, and it's now our turn for some luck. Incidentally Dale, on the outside chance of us not gaining automatic promotion, will the play-off semi and final be included in the prediction league?

If we need to go through the play offs - these results will be included in the prediction league. May give you more time to take the lead WC! :-)
