  1. Well - if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. I know Colin is a highly competitive man, but to seek a season's abandonment when he is top of the league seems excessive even by his standards. Anyway, while there may be a few Step 5 and below games on next weekend it's very hard to judge which ones - so to avoid disappointment we'll have another week off. Jago
  2. HUH ! Oh well, we now appear to have zero games this week. WEEK ABANDONED.
  3. Unlike the world governing bodies, the Prediction League already has processes in place for all eventualities so no board meeting is necessary* . As you know our motto is "to fail to prepare is to prepare to fail". * and Cup of Tea is in Cheltenham anyway So this week continues - albeit with just one game on. But people may obviously adjust their attendance prediction - and indeed score right up to kick off. Next week we will go 100% non league - after all we're supposed to know all about that. Once non league stops I'm afraid, yes, we will need to have a mach mal pause (as they say in Germany) unless you're prepared to predict on the North East Hants Youth League Under 12s. THE MANAGEMENT
  4. Yes Cuppa - your boys took a helluva beating. A helluva beating. Lord Nelson, Mrs Thatcher. Lord Beaverbrook. Ozz, Jago, Can you hear me? <<< For those under 35 who are wondering what I'm on about .... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bjørge_Lillelien >>> For those over 35 who are wondering - maybe you are following the wrong sport. Anyway, no, I didn't previously have a record of the biggest margin, but following hours of in-depth research I do now. And I can confirm that the biggest margin is actually 12 so your 11-goal thrashing is relatively benign. The 12 was (Incredibly) achieved by Sir Colin in 2019-20 (Autumn), and less improbably by Ozz in 2016-17 (Autumn). It's also been achieved 3 times when the opponent failed to turn up (i.e. 12-0 wins) but I'm not sure that counts. Here are the biggest margins for each season when both teams turned up: And there are also the following 12-0 wins versus no-shows... 2015-16 Andy Dick 12-0 Thomson 2016-17 (Spring) Cup of Tea 12-0 Seany The Sheep 2016-17 (Spring) Miss AFCH 12-0 Seany The Sheep Enough late-night stats. Good night.

  6. Hang on one cotton-pickin' minute - that cut and paste worked perfectly - albeit via snip. Blackballed - you may be a technological ignoramus (see also, inter alia, Mick The Bat, Ozz, Sir Colin, 1961 COYS et al) - but you may also , unwittingly, have provided a "temporary work around". Good work.
  7. All about the crowd ... Jordan closer : < 10% out so 2 pts for that. Whereas you were between 10 & 20% so only got 1 point. You lose. 7-8 as it happens. Simples.
  8. Yep - there are some serious gremlins since about 3 weeks ago which means cut&paste no longer works properly. It took over an hour to post and then correct the formatting of the above. Which is okay, my life is pretty vacant - but unless it gets fixed I may move us onto whatsapp or something. Anyway - Ian is on it so hopefully will be resolved soon. NOTE - for anyone wondering what Blackballed and I are on about - it's all corrected now, so just read the original post.
  9. Well. I was great this week. The rest of you not so much. To be fair my local team is Aldersh!t where the clue is in the name - so I had a head start on that one. I guess Luke did alright too (for a Toon fan). And Mr D for that matter - though he's supposed to be bossing it, not hovering meekly just above the relegation swamp. Also - nice to see Wivenhoe back after his 2 week "Miley Cyrus" self-isolation; never realised he'd been to Wuhan but they do have some interesting approaches to teaching maths in China so maybe he's been on a research trip. And as to Mr Hat. Are you hoping for a free season ticket or something? Anyways... We have now all played each other once, and as such the official draw has been made for the final 5 weeks' head-to-head matches (yes - you don't play everyone twice - that's just how it is). Many thanks to Luke XIX who interrupted his busy schedule arguing with Sir Colin to conjure up weeks 3, 4, 6, 7, and 9 as the repeat weeks (you can go back to the forum and check your upcoming opponents if you really must - but essentially it means that this week we reverse the week 3 games ... entiendes? ). And so - as the song goes - 🎵 We are Fantistico. We are Magnifico.🎵 Though actually only I am this week ... (did I already mention that?!) ...

  11. Thanks Ian. I just checked if it was browser related but it's the same on both Chrome and Firefox. It happened some time between 16th Feb and 24th Feb - as my 16th Feb post is still an excel formatted paste as linked here ---> https://www.fansfocus.com/topic/202978-predn-lg-wk-6-results-wk-7-games-by-22-feb-1230/ And I may be wrong but I think there used to be more paste options - now it is just "paste" or "paste as plain text" - but I could be wrong here. If it helps (!?) there is a load of white space below this paragraph which I can't delete - this is where I experimented again pasting cells from excel - I can remove the text but not seemingly the formatting.... All very peculiar! - Good luck and many thanks!, John
  12. Hi Ian - small issue but it affects my "Prediction League" big time and takes me a long time to work around. After the original upgrade in 2018, copy + paste from (say) excel worked perfectly and was a huge improvement on the previous installation. Columns and rows were maintained meaning it was a simple ctrl^c then ctrl^v to maintain all formatting. But now (for the last 2 weeks) it has regressed back so that the paste creates an unformatted set of text - which is then difficult to correct as it's hard to work out where the line feeds are happening. Any ideas? Many thanks Jago
  13. Unlucky to Aveley - well done Chins. Could we? Could we? Anyway, in the league that really matters the clash of the top two went the way of Lord Upminster who is now level again with Sir Colin (who still can't remember what crowd he's going to announce). The Urchin Yid v COYS derby thankfully ended all square, thereby reducing the chances of broken crockery at Spud Hart Lane, and Cup of Tea waltzed home in the battle of the bottom two against a dazed and confused Ozz, (whose resurgence last week appears to have been a false dawn). In Div 2, it was a day of CRUSHED optimism. Paul C? Finally thinks he's got his sh!t together. As did Luke... so yes, an inevitable 12-12 draw. But that was nothing to compare with the shock at Lady Jago Towers and Blackballed Avenue. Both smashed in 14. Both came home to their loved ones with wide smiles and a warm (and unusual) certainty of their own brilliance. So a 14-14 draw was a bit of a bummer really. Hilarious for the rest of us though 🤣 Finally a note for Fat Tom and Wivenhoe. As I believe Winston Churchill once averred... "You have to be in it to win it". (To be fair to Tom he may just be giving the rest of us a chance - he has won every game he's remembered to enter - and unsurprisingly lost the other two). Here it all is...

  15. Well - I enjoyed the trip to Hertfordshire (with a small piece of Essex around one of the floodlights apparently). So much so that I've only just surfaced. (Actually I was busy yesterday - yes, I do have a life - of sorts). Anyway, we are now at the half way point of the prediction league. Fat Tom continues his procession back to the top division with another Golden Boot - albeit shared with Blackballed this week. Sir Colin is still charging like a rhino at the top of the league that matters, and Dinamo is still doggedly insisting on attendances ending in "19"... and surprisingly he actually won this week. Oh, and Ozz's clear-out of his aging dilettante deadwood (no, I'm not talking about you 1961 COYS) has finally paid dividends (unlike my Royal Mail shares). Mind you he was playing The Hat whose addiction to the numbers 2 and 4 proved a habit worth kicking. That's it. I need to go to bed, and so do you.
