Re: 2016/17 Football Prediction Thread - Thanks for Playing

Well, after 41 game weeks, this is it. The final reckoning. Ash has lead for almost the entirety of the competition,but at the last second Samus_Killer started coming up the ropes fast, scoring a frankly ridiculous 15 points to follow up his 16 points last week. Additionally, he scored the joint highest points on the top 4/bottom 3 predictions, with 10. This meant that Ash needed to score a combined 15 points to hold onto his lead. A solid but not spectacular 9 points in the last week as a solid start, and 8 in the positions sealed it. Therefore massive congratulations to Ash for a spectacular win.

Ultimately there were no movements in the last week. Special congratulations are in order for Richard, who was the only person to correctly guess a team's final position. Commiserations also to OmegaPit, who lived up to his own moniker of "king of results, joker of scorelines" with the most combined scores and results of anyone, but far too few of those were correct scores and he was forced to settle for third. Given he missed 2 weeks towards the end of the competition, and was ultimately only 13 points behind Ash, its fair to say he may well have taken the title had he been better at remembering to enter.

Also, amusingly I got a combined total of 212 scores and results, so that's pretty appropriate.

Full results:

I frankly have no idea if I'll be in a position to host the next season, but hopefully someone else can step up if I can't. In the meantime though, thanks to everyone for entering and see you after the summer break.

Just how it should be ;)

I should be cool to host again next season, if you can't Chris.

Gotta give a shoutout to Joe though, gave me one hell of a running and honestly, it should be you that's top. Congrats man.

Pretty impressive that there's just 12 points between 4th and 8th just a shame to be at the bottom of the pile :(

But good job hosting, glad this carried on

Well, like you are the embodiment of Chelsea, I am the embodiment of Spurs, up there but always tripping up on the last hurdle. To be honest I'm just happy that I'm good at guessing who's going to win, I might start placing bets next season.

Also, this really needs to carry on, this is the only thread I post in on SONM now.

Cheers for doing this, Chris. Really hope this continues next season, because I'm definitely up for doing it again. Maybe see if we can get a few others to join us too.

And damn, I'm pleased with my finish in the end, but just not enough to catch up. Congrats, Ash oxo
