Me and Ace both predicted 3 correct teams in the top 4, although I did correctly Arsenal to finish 4th.

We also both predicted 1 correct of 3 relegated teams.

I did however predict best promoted team correctly, while Ace didn't.

So is it safe to say I've won it? Can I get drunk now or have I made myself look stupid.

According to my calculations I got 16 points this week and Acekingston got 12. I was also 2 points clear of him.

So I have a 6 point advantage and I'm about to calculate points from pre season predictions....

-------------------------

 

-Congrats to The Gardner for a stellar performance and taking home the 'medal'. Broke the 300 barrier which I think is the first time it's been done. I feel like you should get a medal or something. Maybe the mods could sort you out :whistle: :^:

-A big 'grats to AceKingston for putting up a good show and taking 2nd. Was close between you two.

-Also well done to Hodgey for taking home 3rd place even after all the initial position predictions between the top 4 and relegated teams.

-Massive thanks to everyone that competed (especially if you didn't beat me, that was much appreciated)

-Special thanks to Crokey for posting Mark 'the c*nt' Lawrenson's scores every week. Was a massive help and a bit of fun including him in the league.

-Also special thanks to those that helped out with tables along with myself; Hodgey, AceKingston and for anyone else that has updated them. :^:

-Seriously considering setting up one of these for the FIFA World Cup 2014 and it sounds like a few others are up for that too. I think we should have a little discussion in here about it and any rules that should be enforced rather than clog up the official discussion topic. :)

-It has been great fun and I'll actually try next year. :whistle:

 

So again, a massive thanks to everyone for a great year, hopefully not missed anything out. Have a good one and I hope to see you next year; same time, same place! :^:

3rd Place. Not great but not bad either. I'll take it seeing as it's the first time I predicited the whole season.

 

As for the WC Predicition Competition, I think the way that the Euro 2012 one was set up was more than adequate. (http://gtaforums.com...diction-league/)

4th is Champions League right?

 

Well done The Gardner, I'll be looking to prune you next year.

 

Does anyone else know of any other pundits who do regular predictions like Mark Lawrenson so we can add another name to the list for next year?

Can we discuss the point system and rules as a group before you make the topic? There are some ways we could improve things.

Well, it would work pretty much like the euro 2012 one worked regarding predictions scoring, together with the bonus predictions.

Just a different banner of course. :p

Like what?

No initial predictions would be my no. 1 pick. The tournament is so close between the top of the pack the winner is mostly dependent on the person with the best initial predictions. Which basically means if you make one mistake at the very start you're done for. Predicting game by game is fine as there are several fixtures you can gain points of, the initial predictions seem unfair.

 

Also. I would like to see changes to the scoring, the rules for getting 3 points per result remains the same. 2 points for the correct goal difference prediction: 

 

For ex. I predicted 2-0 but England win 3-1. That's a better prediction than 5-0 to England for example but both predictions will yield one point which seems odd to me. The rules to get one point should remain the same per fixture (Correct result, wrong goal difference). 

 

Would love to see a prediction for top scorer, but again there's less margin for error as you have to guess right the first time when I feel this tournament should only be based on match predictions as it leaves more margin for error hence, a better representation of who the most accurate predictor is.

A sh*tty 6th place finish for me but I've done very well in the CL prediction league so I'll call it a decent season :)

 

See you all in the WC prediction league!

I think the whole goal difference point system you suggested would be too much hassle and people who only predict every once in a while might get confused by the scoring and how it works. I think it would be best if it is kept as simple as possible.

 

For me I would do it this way:

 

  • Before the season predict the top four finishing positons of teams but not the relegation teams.
  • Predict best promoted team at start of season.
  • Predict top scorer at start of season.
  • Change the points system a little. You get 3 points for correct scoreline but you only get 0.5 pts for a correct result. Giving more emphasis on predicting the correct scoreline.
  • Also have 1 random selected game each weekend that is worth double points. Then if some people are quite a way behind they still have a chance to make those points up if they have a few weeks of prediciting the correct scoreline in the duble points fixture.

Congrats on your win! and I agree with your suggestion.
 
I'm going to repost the few suggestions I'd made for the WC prediction league in the WC topic, because I believe that'll get buried.
 
 

 aside from predicting team progress and scores, can we add a few extra categories just for fun? For example, predict the Golden Boot winner, First team to be mathematically eliminated, First red card, and some stuff like that? These categories could simply be hit or miss for points, like you either get it nailed on for X amount of points, or nothing at all.
