  1. I know what you mean, I can't shake the feeling that my score is 49 points lower than it should be. But nah, the sausage's decision is final
  2. The final results are in! AFC Bournemouth 1-0 Millwall Sheffield United 4-0 Fulham Exeter City 0-1 Port Vale Leyton Orient 0-1 Tranmere Rovers Mansfield Town 2-2 Forest Green Rovers Solihull Moors 3-1 Dagenham & Redbridge Wealdstone 2-1 King’s Lynn Yeovil Town 2-2 Boreham Wood --- This week's highest scorer is @super_ram - congrats to you! @super_ram - 10 @GrannyPie - 8 @Dripsey3, @4everapie, @gtownjohnno, @nottsnutter - 5 @Dan, @DangerousSausage, @magpiejue - 4 @barnet11uk - 3 @Megan_Elizax, @ARLukomski - 2 --- So finally we come to our final rankings. Massive congratulations to @Dripsey3, who has won the prediction league with a record 259 points! All that squeaky bum time turned out to be worth it in the end. @Dan finishes second just nine points behind, and @super_ram has seen off a late challenge from @4everapie to claim third. As for me, like Man United I'll have to make do with a Europe League spot. Dripsey3 - 259 Dan - 250 super_ram - 237 4everapie - 230 gtownjohnno - 217 DangerousSausage - 211 Megan_Elizax - 189 magpiejue - 187 ARLukomski - 185 nottsnutter - 184 jimbob - 182 GrannyPie - 181 barnet11uk - 169 Chris - 106 KB1862 - 52 liampie - 50 Joshua - 34 Feral Fox - 29 allardyces tash - 21 TheSkipper - 16 CliftonMagpie - 10 Alex - 7 Canadian - 4 --- So that's it! @Dripsey3 wins the special prize, a real hen's tooth (collection only). I hope you've all enjoyed playing, and at least occasionally revelled in the feeling of being a football genius! Thank you all for taking part, and I hope to see you all back to do it all again in August
  3. That's the play-offs sorted then, and very nice listening it was too from my garden in Germany! And we're nearly certain to start the play-offs with a home tie, which will probably be against Grimsby. That'll be a very different game though!
  4. It's the final round - and your last chance to hoover up some points! Kick-off is at 12.30 (Championship) / 3pm on Saturday... @4everapie, @jimbob, @barnet11uk, @Chris, @KB1862, @liampie, @Joshua, @Feral Fox, @allardyces tash, @TheSkipper, @CliftonMagpie, @Alex, @Canadian
  5. I can't see this personally - if the roles were reversed, I wouldn't be wild about bringing in a manager who only has National League experience in the UK. But you never know. I wonder if he'll be asked about it during his next interview?
  6. AFC Bournemouth 1-1 Millwall Sheffield United 2-4 Fulham Exeter City 1-1 Port Vale Leyton Orient 0-2 Tranmere Rovers Mansfield Town 1-2 Forest Green Rovers Solihull Moors 2-0 Dagenham & Redbridge (joker) Wealdstone 3-1 King’s Lynn Yeovil Town 0-2 Boreham Wood
  7. Hey @jimbob, these are for last week. Nice try though The latest round is here - https://prideofnottingham.co.uk/forums/topic/10172-prediction-league-2122-round-46-7-may-the-grand-finale/
  8. It’s the month where the big decisions fall, whether in pointless competitions like the Premier League, or in incredibly important, era-defining contests like the Vanarama National League or the PON prediction league. Who will make history? Who will finish fifth? And will anybody notice if I give myself an extra 100 points? These matches take place on Saturday, with the two Championship games kicking off at 12.30 and all the others at 3pm. And remember those jokers. Good luck! AFC Bournemouth v Millwall Sheffield United v Fulham Exeter City v Port Vale Leyton Orient v Tranmere Rovers Mansfield Town v Forest Green Rovers Solihull Moors v Dagenham & Redbridge Wealdstone v King’s Lynn Yeovil Town v Boreham Wood
  9. Yikes, can we put some kind of trigger warning on these? Some awful defending there. Our penalty wasn't a penalty either, there was little to no contact (not that it made a difference). Their third was a great finish. Cool ground.
  10. The results: Blackburn Rovers 0-3 AFC Bournemouth Cardiff City 1-1 Birmingham City Cambridge United 2-2 Cheltenham Town Gillingham 0-2 Rotherham United Crawley Town 0-2 Leyton Orient Northampton Town 1-1 Exeter City Bromley 4-2 Chesterfield King's Lynn 3-3 Eastleigh --- This week's winners are @Dan and @GrannyPie, who both hit double figures! @Dan, @GrannyPie - 10 @4everapie, @Megan_Elizax, @barnet11uk - 7 @super_ram, @gtownjohnno, @ARLukomski - 6 @DangerousSausage, @jimbob, @nottsnutter - 5 @Dripsey3, @magpiejue - 3 --- Going into the all-important final round, @Dripsey3's lead is narrowed but is still a healthy nine points. Will that be enough, or can @Dan pull a rabbit out of the hat? Elsewhere, @Megan_Elizax has gone up a place and @4everapie is threatening the top three: Dripsey3 - 254 Dan - 246 super_ram - 227 4everapie - 225 gtownjohnno - 212 DangerousSausage - 207 Megan_Elizax - 187 ARLukomski - 183 magpiejue - 183 jimbob - 182 nottsnutter - 179 GrannyPie - 173 barnet11uk - 166 Chris - 106 KB1862 - 52 liampie - 50 Joshua - 34 Feral Fox - 29 allardyces tash - 21 TheSkipper - 16 CliftonMagpie - 10 Alex - 7 Canadian - 4 --- The concluding round of this season's prediction league is on Saturday, so expect to see the fixtures online on Wednesday evening. Have a good week, and let the nail biting begin!
  11. We approach matches against the better teams and those against the Weymouths and the Aldershots very differently, and that's part of the problem. It's disrespectful, and frankly there's no excuse for the opposition "wanting it more" when we have (or rather had) a top-three place to fight for. Now it'll be the play-off quarter-finals for us again. We can thank our lucky stars we're somehow still in the top five.
  12. Good win for Frankfurt in an evenly matched semi-final at Wet Spam. Eintracht moved up a gear when they needed to in the second half and deserved the win, but the Hammers nearly got the draw at the death through a mad overhead kick from Bowen that had Kevin Trapp beaten. The home fans were a bit quiet considering the importance of the game, their team needed them. The second leg will be quite the occasion - Eintracht aren't particularly strong at home, so it's still anyone's. Desperately crossing my fingers for Rangers in the other semi-final. Even the stupid Old Firm politics are preferable to Red Bull.
  13. Blackburn Rovers 1-2 AFC Bournemouth Cardiff City 2-1 Birmingham City Cambridge United 1-1 Cheltenham Town Gillingham 1-3 Rotherham United (joker) Crawley Town 2-0 Leyton Orient Northampton Town 2-1 Exeter City Bromley 1-2 Chesterfield King's Lynn 0-0 Eastleigh @magpiejue, you've forgotten your joker. @gtownjohnno, you copied Dan's predictions as well by mistake. No need to change anything though, I'll just assume the second batch are yours.
  14. Yep. Luton are living proof that things can get better. They were in the NL for years.
  15. It's the penultimate week of this season's prediction league - we say goodbye to League One (no idea why they're finishing a week early) and any mathematical chance most of us have of winning it. But there's pride and honour to fight for. Kick-off is 3pm on Saturday - except for the two League One fixtures, which start at 12.30pm. And don't forget your jokers! Blackburn Rovers v AFC Bournemouth Cardiff City v Birmingham City Cambridge United v Cheltenham Town Gillingham v Rotherham United Crawley Town v Leyton Orient Northampton Town v Exeter City Bromley v Chesterfield King's Lynn v Eastleigh
  16. Looking better already after last night's win, and the gap to third is now just 4 points. Can we dream?
  17. A winning team stepping down a gear or two when they're winning comfortably is a thing. But there's a difference between that and just stopping doing the basics like tracking back and letting the visitors have a series of chances to get back into the game. It feels like a harsh criticism after we won, but on another day doing that could cost us promotion.
  18. The results: AFC Bournemouth 1-1 Fulham Hull City 3-0 Reading Fleetwood Town 1-1 AFC Wimbledon Wycombe Wanderers 1-0 Sheffield Wednesday Bristol Rovers 0-0 Forest Green Rovers Harrogate Town 3-0 Carlisle United Boreham Wood 2-0 Bromley Grimsby Town 2-1 Torquay United --- @4everapie was this week's top scorer, while @jimbob and @Dripsey3 (who got the joker right) also scooped impressive scores! @4everapie - 12 @Dripsey3, @jimbob - 8 @magpiejue - 7 @Dan, @DangerousSausage, @barnet11uk - 6 @super_ram, @ARLukomski - 5 @GrannyPie - 4 @nottsnutter - 3 @Megan_Elizax - 2 @gtownjohnno - nul points --- @Dripsey3 has taken a big step towards the title with that joker, while @4everapie has jumped a place and is now in the running for the top three... Dripsey3 - 251 Dan - 236 super_ram - 221 4everapie - 218 gtownjohnno - 206 DangerousSausage - 202 magpiejue - 180 Megan_Elizax - 180 jimbob - 177 ARLukomski - 177 nottsnutter - 174 GrannyPie - 163 barnet11uk - 159 Chris - 106 KB1862 - 52 liampie - 50 Joshua - 34 Feral Fox - 29 allardyces tash - 21 TheSkipper - 16 CliftonMagpie - 10 Alex - 7 Canadian - 4 --- That's yer lot this week. To finish off, I'd like to remind you all that I've still got a mathematical chance of winning it this season, and I count the points You will be unsurprised to learn that the next round is on Saturday and the fixtures will be posted on Wednesday, or whenever I get round to it. Take care everyone and see you then!
  19. A win's a win, we've increased the gap to 8th and kept the pressure on the teams above us. With Halifax losing, we're 7 point behind them with a game in hand. Another slip-up from them and we could be looking at a battle royale for third place. It wasn't enjoyable listening though, it sounded as though we just relaxed after the second and third goals and showboated out way through a good part of the match. That's a very bad habit and could end up costing us dear.
  20. Oldham were in absolutely dire straits before Sheridan took over there again to be fair. But 9 defeats in the last 11 games does tell its own story. Welcome to the pleasuredome Oldham and Scunny, hope we don't have to play you (but we probably will). Fun fact: three of the 22 clubs that resigned from the Football League to join the Premier League in 1991 have now played in the National League. Oldham are one. Who are the other two?
  21. AFC Bournemouth 3-1 Fulham Hull City 2-1 Reading Fleetwood Town 1-1 AFC Wimbledon Wycombe Wanderers 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday Bristol Rovers 0-2 Forest Green Rovers (joker) Harrogate Town 0-1 Carlisle United Boreham Wood 0-2 Bromley Grimsby Town 2-0 Torquay United
  22. There are only three rounds to go - now is the time to stake your claim for the title or to climb as high as you can. A lucky few of you might even finish above me, and I'm not bitter at all. Not even a little bit. Kick-off is Saturday at 3pm, and you have one joker each! AFC Bournemouth v Fulham Hull City v Reading Fleetwood Town v AFC Wimbledon Wycombe Wanderers v Sheffield Wednesday Bristol Rovers v Forest Green Rovers Harrogate Town v Carlisle United Boreham Wood v Bromley Grimsby Town v Torquay United
  23. All the signs point towards a home win. But I've learned never to underestimate our capacity for messing things up! If we go into the game with the required intensity and score early on we should hopefully get the three points.
  24. The results: Barnsley 0-2 Peterborough United Reading 4-4 Swansea City Bolton Wanderers 3-1 Accrington Stanley Plymouth Argyle 0-0 Sunderland Colchester United 3-0 Bradford City Port Vale 1-3 Bristol Rovers Barnet 1-3 Southend United Stockport County 1-0 Solihull Moors --- Not many points to go around this time, but this round's winner is @gtownjohnno! @gtownjohnno - 6 @Dripsey3, @Dan, @4everapie, @nottsnutter - 4 @super_ram, @DangerousSausage, @Megan_Elizax, @ARLukomski, @GrannyPie, @barnet11uk - 3 @jimbob - 2 --- In our overall table, @Dripsey3 holds a 13-point lead with just three rounds left, while @gtownjohnno moves into joint fourth: Dripsey3 - 243 Dan - 230 super_ram - 216 gtownjohnno - 206 4everapie - 206 DangerousSausage - 196 Megan_Elizax - 178 magpiejue - 173 ARLukomski - 172 nottsnutter - 171 jimbob - 169 GrannyPie - 159 barnet11uk - 153 Chris - 106 KB1862 - 52 liampie - 50 Joshua - 34 Feral Fox - 29 allardyces tash - 21 TheSkipper - 16 CliftonMagpie - 10 Alex - 7 Canadian - 4 --- Our next round is on Saturday, so the fixtures will be online from Wednesday. Thanks for playing and see you all then!
