Championship Predictions 2016/17 - GW26

22 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Welcome to the Championship 2016/17 VT prediction league, you can join in at any time during the tournament but please make sure you follow the instructions carefully. However, if you are just thinking about just playing for a single week, or are going to lose interest after a couple of weeks, then do us all a time saving favour and don't bother playing.

-- Making a Prediction --

  1. Head on over to https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JJHBdYRs_tzHsVDF1lpSoNIvr6E0nthT6nE47V_UQ44/edit#gid=852604438
  2. Make sure you are selecting the right sheet for the Gameweek (inactive sheets will be fully locked)
  3. Find the first 'blank' entry with all scores set as '0-0' and 'ENTER YOUR NAME HERE' as the name
  4. Green Cells are for you to enter stuff into, all other cells are not!
  5. Fill in your predicted scores for each game
  6. When entering your name, make sure it is EXACTLY the same as your VT name and that it doesn't have any erroneous spaces and is CaSe SeNsEtIvE
    :excl: Incorrectly entered names, even if it is just a space at the start or a capital letter, will result in tracking errors throughout the tournament :excl:
  7. Once your prediction is complete, copy the cells within the dotted line and post them into this VT thread
    :excl: If you do not post the results correctly into this thread then your prediction will be ignored :excl:
  8. Thread banter is encouraged, but please post banter before your pasted predictions.
  9. Gameweek already started? No problem you can still play, just put the score for the games you have missed as N-A, e.g
    Fulham N-A Villa


-- When will prediction threads be posted up? --

  • Generally I will try and post threads on Tuesday or Wednesday of each week, but this may slip at times. Just keep an eye on the forum and it'll be there before the games start.
  • Gameweek matches will follow those as laid out on the BBC Championship fixtures page, let me know if I miss something due to a game being moved or postponed etc.


-- Previous Gameweek Results --

Name Result Points Score Points Total Points

knoppy1987 4 3 7
Hornso 2 3 5
andykeenan 1 0 1
Daniel 1 0 1

For the leader board of GW24 results we see the magnificent Chewie top the table, with TheAuthority in second. rubberman, Dem_C, and Rodders all managed 11 points, with Villaphan04 the final person on double digits.

For the leader board of GW25 results we see rubberman top the table, with andykeenan making up for an awful GW24 being the only other person on double digits.

Name Points from Correct Results Points from Correct Scores Total Points GWs Played Avg Points per GW
rubberman 119 108 227 24 9.5

meme 6 3 9 1 9.0
villalad21 5 3 8 1 8.0
theboyangel 3 0 3 1 3.0
Richard 2 0 2 1 2.0

And would you Adam & Eve it? We go away for a nice Christmas break to reflect on the birthday of our Lord and Saviour and it's all bloody change! rubberman out of nowhere takes the top spot in the overall table. Dem_C stays in second with TheAuthority jumping into 3rd. andykeenan drops down 4th with Chewie in 5th, and Daniel's missed week costing him a drop down to 6th place. And it's tights lads, tighter than the virgin Mary's mary before Jesus popped out! The second half of the season is sure to be scintillating stuff.

-- My (Chewie's) Prediction for this Gameweek --

Name Home Team     Away Team Guess
  Reading 2 0 QPR Reading
  Leeds 2 1 Derby Leeds
  Bristol 1 1 Cardiff Draw
  Birmingham 1 0 Forest Birmingham
  Burton 2 1 Wigan Burton
  Fulham 3 1 Barnsley Fulham
  Ipswich 2 0 Blackburn Ipswich
  Preston 0 2 Brighton Brighton
  Rotherham 0 3 Norwich Norwich
  Wednesday 2 1 Huddersfield Wednesday
  Wolves 1 1 Villa Draw
  Brentford 0 3 Newcastle Newcastle
Chewie          

When pasting your prediction table you might want to hit enter a couple of times before you post your prediction in. The editor makes life difficult to create a new line after you paste the table in if you haven't 'entered' a couple of times first.


-- Bets --

In each Gameweek I will aim to select two predictions of my choosing, one for correct results and one for Both Teams to score (Yes/No). I shall then place a £1 accumulator on each of those bets, should they win I will give the predictor 20% of the winnings to be paid via Paypal. None placed during this busy period.

-- Good Luck --

Good luck to everyone for the week, and please don't be a bitch and mess with other people's predictions in the Google Sheet, there's a good girl :)

Games start Thursday, finish on Monday.


-- Special Request --

Would any of you guys be willing to help me out with the Google Sheet? I need someone to go through and put in all the upcoming fixtures for the second half of the season. It'd just be one off data entry, and i'd continue to do the calculations each week and stuff, it's just listing out all the fixtures is taking up too much of my time. Anyone? :)

pffft.  I've been biding my time, waiting to strike while everyone was distracted by mince pies and transfer talk.  Well, either that or dumb luck.

Yes I did! Got over for the boxing day game and took the lovey Mrs. A for her first VP experience. She's such a love she teared up! Having heard me go on about Villa for so long, when the Holte started singing she was crying! 

Went to a Panto in Brum and spent time with my family and friends in the Black Country. I ate far too many pork scratchins and pies washed down with lots of pints of Bathams.

Were you in Manilla and if so what's Christmas like over there?

Sounds very nice. I was actually in Hong Kong where Xmas isn't a big deal. In the Philippines it starts about September, huge Catholic country so everyone is all "Happy birthday Jesus" and that shit.
