Prediction League table has been updated. As Vogue noted Hoarse Whisperer has had a good week and moves in to within two points of our league leader rdaniells who still retains top spot on 25 points.

This week sees the top of conference clash between Yeovil and Doncaster Rovers, and two lower division matches from the Ryman Northern and Dr Martens divisions.

Should anybody fancy taking their prediction skills to the international level then you could try the scripts authors England Prediction league for Wednesday and the future at England FC Prediction League

Predictions have been updated for this week.

For the first time in a while we have a new league leader!

Congratulations to Hoarse Whisperer <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif" alt="" /> who has climbed to the summit of the greasy pole.

This weeks fixtures see the prediction league turn its attention again to the FA Cup and continuing to follow our 3 teams that were victorious last round.

The fixtures are;
AFC Sudbury v St Albans
Hereford Utd v Aresley Town
Slough Town v Canvey Island

Good Luck to all

<img src="/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif" alt="" /> The Prediction League is up to date again.

HoarseWhisper is still top for a second week, with carjam now in 2nd!

With several players now close to the top spot it promises to be a battle to be top of the tree for November.

This weeks fixtures from the Conference, Ryman and Unibond leagues.

Good luck

Prediction League updated with results and this weeks fixtures.

Hoarse Whisperer is creating a gap at the top by moving onto 35 points.

This week I expect to see Mr Vogue get at least one result correct as we feature the West Midlands Div 1 clash between high flying Chaddesley Corbett FC and lowly Leominster with a 2.15 Kick Off (Please note for those that normally post a 10 to 3 on Sat as this will be too late).

Thanks very much for featuring us Chris -the boys will be very pleased. The league table is on the website below if anyone wants any info.
However what do I do if we're 3-0 up with 2 minutes to go and I'm through on goal? Do I deliberatly stick it wide?

It SHOULD be a home banker. (ironically, since they're a large town, and we're a tiny village). I think 3-0 or 4-0 is a fair shout. We played them over at their place first game of the seaon and beat them 4-2, but it was easier than that in all reality - they scored in the last minute. They've got a really young team, (managed by ex-Aston Villa, Mark Jones)and are struggling - off the top of my head I think they're second bottom and without a win so far this season. (the league table is on our website if you want to check) We played fantastically well at the weekend to beat the league leaders 3-2 at the weekend, but played poorly the previous week to only draw 1-1 against another struggling team. I think I'll go for 3-0.
The result will be on the Chaddesley website by about 6:30pm Sat - and I'll try to post it here shortly afterwards too.
Hope this helps
Vogue

Well, I think we'd all better wait to see what you put down as the result if the match fixing is stooping to this level!!! <img src="/forums/images/icons/grin.gif" alt="" />

Personally,I'd put it wide and go for to sets of 3 points!

It's a really strange feeling - but bizarrely I do intend to play for a 3-0 victory on Saturday. This for for a fun prediction league that has no money at stake, and I've no chance of winning! For the first time in my life I can see how top sportspeople could be easily tempted into match fixing.

My major difficulty I forsee is if we go 3-0 up too early (never thought I'd say that). Then my role as I see it is to stop our team from scoring, ie my passing may suddenly become worse than it normally is, whilst also ensuring that Leominster don't score ie my tackling needs to be better than normal. Will people become suspicious if I take the ball into the corner after 25 minutes and try to keep it there for the rest of the game?

We know that vogue is indeed a scholar but is he a gentleman? I sounded out Vogue about the result suggesting that Chadders would win 3-0 or 4-0. What would happen if Chadders are 3 up and get a penalty in injury time, would Vogue take it and deliberately miss? I think not, he would find the glory of getting his name on the score sheet to be irresistable.

On the other hand if Chadders get a penalty in injury time leading by 2-0, could Vogue score under pressure?

I've realised that it's a lot easier to inluence a 3-1 score than a 3-0 score. They could always get a lucky break, or our keeper could make a howler (as he's done a couple of times this season).
And if they still hadn't scored by 85 mins, I'd be easily able to get an own goal (and still be able to get on the scoresheet!)
