2017/18 Football Prediction Thread & Fantasy League

Coming back as host of this, gotta fiddle the points to defend my title somehow!

This has been running long enough now that I'm sure it needs little introduction, so with the new season starting this weekend it's time to welcome back the Football Prediction Thread. For those who haven't played before the rules are below:

The Rules:
- 3 points for the correct score e.g. 3-1
- 1 point for correct result e.g. draw/win
- 5 bonus points for predicting all correct scores for the round of matches
- 2 bonus points for predicting all correct results for the round of matches
- All predictions in before the kickoffs of the matches you predict

Bonus Points:
As always, there will be bonus points awarded for predictions of the Top 4 and Bottom 3 of the table come the end of the season, with these predictions having been vital in deciding the final table in previous seasons. If you correctly predict the place in which a team finishes, you will earn 5 points, and if the team finishes in the top 4/bottom 3 but not in the place you predicted, you'll score 2 points. I'll stick a code in the second post.

In-game Tournament:
The tournament will start on week 21 and will run for however many weeks necessary depending on how many entrants we get.

There will be a bonus 10 points for the winner of the tournament, 6 points for the runner up, and 2 for third place.

It's as simple as that, really. Happy predicting!

Here are the fixtures for the first week of predictions:

Friday 11th August
Arsenal v Leicester (7.45pm)

Saturday 12th August
Watford v Liverpool (12.30pm)
Chelsea v Burnley (3pm)
Crystal Palace v Huddersfield Town (3pm)
Everton v Stoke City (3pm)
Southampton v Swansea City (3pm)
West Brom v Bournemouth (3pm)
Brighton v Man City (5.30pm)

Sunday 13th August
Newcastle v Tottenham (1.30pm)
Man Utd v West Ham (4pm)

And here's some code!

Code: Select all

[b][u]Friday 11th August[/u][/b]
Arsenal [b][/b] - [b][/b] Leicester (7.45pm)

[b][u]Saturday 12th August[/u][/b]

Is there a deadline to change the Top Four and Bottom Three predictions? Considering the transfer market hasn't closed yet there may be some last minute signings that might make me want to change certain positions. But for now:

3rd - Chelsea
4th - Liverpool

Bottom 3:

I'll let them be changed until the end of the transfer market.

Cool, just managed to register Neo Bixton to the fantasy league. Unfortunately my schedule gets hectic towards the weekends so didn't want to bow out of the prediction thread mid way through again. I will continue to check in the thread and maybe next time actually join in :)

Welcome back to this, as we've just come to the end of Match Week 1 and have our first set of results.

Not looking dodgy at all, I'm the highest scorer in our first week with 9 points, getting off my title defence to a good start as promised. However, GuitarHero, phalanx, and samus_killer are equally quite high scorers, scoring 8, 7, and 7 points respectively. Sadly getting off to a rocky start are Ploiper and last year's host pokemaniac212, who score just 4 and 5 points respectively. A shoutout to Sander, who scores a week average of 6 points in their first week playing this game.

Here are the fixtures for Match Week 2:
Saturday 19th August
Swansea v Man Utd (12.30pm)
Bournemouth v Watford (3pm)
Burnley v West Brom (3pm)
Leicester v Brighton (3pm)
Liverpool v Crystal Palace (3pm)
Southampton v West Ham (3pm)
Stoke v Arsenal (5.30pm)

Sunday 20th August
Huddersfield v Newcastle (1.30pm)
Tottenham v Chelsea (4pm)

Monday 21st August
Man City v Everton (8pm)

And here's the code:
