  1. What a performance at The Bar. And I don’t mean Blackballed’s antics at Stringfellows. Talking of Blackballed – he’s closing in on the normally imperious Paul C who was held to a surprising draw by the normally useless Fat Tom. So now it’s all set up for a fabulous last two weeks – especially as it’s Blackballed v Paul C this week (after Lady Jago randomly drew out weeks 6 and 2 as the repeat weeks to take us to the full 13). Mysterious Nick could just about sneak in, but after his second “Hornchurch-to-lose” prediction of the season, let’s hope not eh? Both failed to get him any goals BTW. That’ll learn him. UrchinYid won the critical match at the bottom v Baby Jago who is now propping up the division. But it’s so tight down there anything could still happen (which is the lazy way of saying I can’t be bothered to work it all out). Div 2? Who cares. Bunch of losers (and yes I can still join you next season). Ozz must be on for some kind of record though. Golden Boots: Left – Adrian, Right – Mick the Bat Fat Tom Alarm Clock – Mojo Special “Attendance Geek” award – COYS. Only 4 goals scored between us on the attendance – 3 for COYS, 1 for the Dummy Team who get a freebie. And zero for the rest of us – Well done Potters Bar for getting the locals out (plus plenty of chins on tour). Two weeks to go : here it is: FA Trophy Division FA Vase Division Next week ; 3 Dec by 12:30 - ideally earlier as matches seem to be moving for the World Cup I was thinking of doing Group A winner v Group B runner up, but decided far too complicated for the likes of us, so you’ll have to suffer with this lot:- Crusaders v Glentoran (12:30) Sunderland v Millwall (12:30) Chelmsford v Dartford (12:30) Enfield v B. Stortford (12:30) Bowers v Chins Attendance : Contingency: Derby v Sheff Wed (12:30) The end, Jago

  3. Didn’t go to Brightlingsea – but it would get very dull if we won every week eh? Anyway, to summarise down in the Prediction League: We welcome back Ozz to Division 1. Luke appears to have awoken from his long slumber. Golden boot awarded. Utter guff by me and COYS who share the Lucky B@stard(s) award. THREE weeks to go so get your sh!t in gear. That is all. FA Trophy Division FA Vase Division NEXT WEEK - Week 11 of 13, by 10am Saturday 26th November Predicting games: Tunisia v Australia (10:00) AFC Wimbledon v Chesterfield (FAC at 90 mins) Dag & Red v Gillingham (FAC at 90 mins) Billericay v Canvey Potters Bar v Hornchurch Attendance : Contingency: Spain v Germany (Sunday) The very best of wishes to you all, Jago
  4. @Mick the bat - update noted. Meanwhile everyone seems to be going for exactly the same results (more or less) - so could be a very high scoring round if I've misjudged the fixtures. Or very low scoring if I haven't. What happened to your sense of adventure? Anyway - at least Colin is going off piste...

  5. Hello everyone. The eagle eyed amongst you will already have seen the “half time” scores on last week’s thread – so will already know, more or less, how you’ve done. If not, let me tell you that the entire Jago brood had a shocker. But it was Sir Colin who stole the limelight for incompetence with the first “1” of the season (I think). Meanwhile Dinamo seemingly got someone else (clearly more qualified) to predict for him this week, and Mojo is back on track and still in with a chance of the playoffs. At the top of Div 1 it’s now pretty much a two horse race, with Blackballed desperately clinging onto Paul C’s shorts as the two of them go all out for the final four weeks. Impressive consistency from them both, with just one defeat between them. Oh yeah, and then there’s Ozz … he’s doing quite well too. FA Trophy Division FA Vase Division NEXT WEEK - Sat 19th November by 3pm And to predict upon? Well - pick the bones out of this lot ... Gibraltar v Andorra Cove Rangers v Greenock Morton Grays Ath v Hashtag United Haringey v Potters Bar Brightlingsea v Hornchurch Attendance : Contingency: Glenavon v Coleraine That's it. Enjoy the tour-de-Essex this week. Jago.
  6. While we await the result from Goiânia (nope, me neither), I thought you might like to see the half time scores. I can only assume Dinamo got someone else to do his predictions this week. And not even COYS can blow it from here.

  8. Another high scoring week. I really do need to up my game. As does COYS frankly, but that’s another story. Some very good attendance predictions across the board – possibly the best ever but I don’t keep that sort of record. I’m not a machine. Cream of the crop was Adrian who got it spot on at 520 to bag the full five goals. I think it’s the first one of the season, but I’ll leave you lot to go back and check as I have stuff to do. The Paul C juggernaut rolls on – with a golden boot-winning 17 goal haul this week. But you do have to feel a tad sorry for his opponent Baby Jago (painful though this is for me to say), who despite having the second highest goals total is now languishing in the relegation spots. And if Forest hadn’t equalised in injury time it would have been 16 each. But as I never cease to tell him in my award-winning fatherly & supportive manner, “That’s life son. You loser.” Talking of losers, Ozz continues to lead the charge down in the Vase Division. "Park football" though innit Ozz? We need you back in the big time. We could all do with the guaranteed points. Finally, next week we have a game from Brazil at the request of a certain Mr D who is sojourning there for a few weeks. Now then David – it would have been helpful if you hadn’t left this request until the last weekend of the season when all the games are being played on Sunday night! However I am here to serve and have done my best; but please don’t blame me if next week’s results aren’t out until Wednesday. Here we go …. FA Trophy Division FA Vase Division NEXT WEEK'S MATCHES - Week 9 of 13 - By 3pm Saturday 12th November And last but by no means least, some fixtures upon which to predict...

  10. No probs -was just confirming. Good to have you back - and obvs family takes precedence over this prediction malarkey. As a friendly tip - that attendance is going to be far too low!
  11. Evening all – magnificent at Margate. And that was just Joe Christou. Anyone get a video of the round of applause from all the players as he came down to greet the fans at the end? He looked most embarrassed by all the attention. Bit short of time to comment on the Prediction League but will just congratulate Adrian on finally(!) getting that difficult first win, and Ozz in triumphing in the latest instalment of the Ozz-Lord Classico. This takes him top of the Vase Division as CuppaT was held at The Tea Grounds by The Diamond Geezer. Also I shall remind UrchinYid to PUT THE RESULTS BETWEEN THE TEAMS. However this was a minor glitch (just one of the scores) in an otherwise exemplary record so this is NOT an official warning. Yet. Also, very unlucky to Baby Jago and Colin. Both slammed in 16, but had the misfortune to be playing each other. It's probably the highest scoring game of all time but who knows? (Or cares for that matter?) Maybe they were playing rush goalie? Ironically, if Colin had stayed at home he’d have won 17-16 as he’d have got another point on the crowd. On balance I suspect Colin’s pleased he was at the game. Golden Boot – Ozz (18 goals – up there with Blackballed’s 19 from last week) Fat Tom Alarm Clock – Luke, Dinamo, and Mojo. But I’m not going out to get any new clocks so you’ll have to have a hand each (yes this clock has a second hand). Lucky B@stards – Wivenhoe and Paul C. Mojo – I’ve PM’d you. If you’ve stopped playing we need to know as it will skew the results for those who played you at the start of the season. So I'll need to do some rebalancing. Thanks THE TROPHY BOYS THE VASE WANNABES NEXT WEEK - Week 8 of 13. 5th November, by 3pm And for predicting on: Galatasaray v Besiktas Nott’m Forest v Brentford Everton v Leicester Maidenhead v Dagenham (FAC – at 90 mins) HFC v Wingate & F Attendance: Contingency: Horsham v Potters Bar That's it.

  13. It's a temporary blip I assure you. Normal service will be resumed shortly.
  14. I couldn’t make it yesterday but watching on Twitter was good enough, especially as that penalty cemented my thoroughly deserved win over the sprog. “The higher they climb, the harder they fall”, as Jimmy Ciff didn't quite sing. But if he had, it would have been a most accurate description of Paul C’s week. After 5 wins on the trot, winning for fun, smiting all before him, blah blah blah, he came up against Blackballed’s once-a-season moment of inspiration and haemorrhaged 19 goals. Actually, very well done indeed Mr Ball. That’s the second highest score of all time (equal). And I hope that the “C” in "Paul C" isn’t going to start standing for “complacency” Paul? Hard luck to MikeMike and Baby Jago who were both only 1 out on the crowd – Just think, if you’d sorted me a lift you’d have been spot on and nabbed that crowd bonus. Loads of other stuff probably happened too but I’ll let you work it out for yourselves. A high scoring week so please don’t bemoan your luck if you scored 10 and still lost. You just have to get better. Lord knows you've had enough practice. I’ll have to toughen up the selections next week. Golden Boot – Blackballed. Maybe diamond-studded boot this week?

  16. Well. The draw for the first round proper is tomorrow. Let’s just hope Oxford get Boreham Wood away as if it’s Orient (or similar) I shall cut my wrists. (Snowflake alert – obviously I won’t do that, I’m exaggerating for literary effect). Oxford were defo there for the taking, but events overtook us: irrespective of whether it was a “red” or a “yellow” it was a foolish challenge and why give the ref the option? Hey ho – Enfield lost in the league, and I won the 50:50. Small compensations in the scheme of things, but consolations nevertheless. Down in the parallel universe, it was a very low scoring week. Big hitters (in their own minds) Luke, Sir Colin, Mr D and Ozz managed a pathetic 8 goals between the four of them. But that didn't stop our proper Big Hitter Paul C continuing his relentless pursuit of world domination (Played 5, won 5). Mysterious Nick (who?) consolidated into second spot by claiming the Golden Boot and leaving heads scratching the length and breadth of the league – a) who is this guy? and b) has he got nits? In the wannabe division, Ozz lost the battle of the top two (2-3 v CuppaTea who now leapfrogs Ozz into first place). But frankly if the top two can only manage a paltry five goals between them it really makes one wonder about the famous “strength in depth” of our prediction league. Finally a special mention to Fat Tom and Baby Jago – who both slammed in 10 goals but had the misfortune to be playing each other. C’est la vie chaps. Fat Tom Alarm Clock award to Mojo4687. WAKEY WAKEY Mojo Lucky B@stard awarded jointly to CuppaTea (see above) and Diamond Geezer. The results follow: FA TROPHY DIVISION FA VASE DIVISION NEXT WEEK - Saturday 22nd October by 3pm Predict disasterously on this lot: FC Copenhagen v Midtjylland Everton v C. Palace Millwall v West Brom Arbroath v Hamilton Hornchurch v Horsham Attendance: Contingency: Sunderland v Burnley That's yer lot. Jago

  21. Have you been on the Elderflower Wine again Mick?
  22. I couldn’t make yesterday’s game at Harlow. Had I bothered to turn up I’d have beaten Blackballed in the Prediction league by dint of an extra goal on the crowd figure. Ah well, c’est la vie. Anyway, a much trickier scoring week for most of us, though Paul C seems to be in some kind of parallel universe, charging on relentlessly with another magnificent 13 goal haul. He and Ozz are the last remaining 100 percenters, wot with Clive’s luck finally running out in the wilds of East Anglia at the experienced hands of Lord Upminster. Time to knock these two off their pedestals folks. Long term readers will be aware that traditionally these pages have few good words to say about Dinamo Urchin. But it's time to bury the hatchet and voice a little sympathy for the old chap, coming up against a previously wretched Dummy Team who finally got their err, stuff together for his visit. Very unlucky there Dinamo. Ho ho ho. So that’s the Dummies’ first points of the season in the bag, a feat equalled by Urchin Yid who showed absolutely no family respect by nicking all 3 points off his esteemed dad, COYS1827. Shameful. Fat Tom’s Alarm clock was brought out of its box and shared between the eponymous FattyT, and MickTheBat. Lucky B@st@rd award – no stand outs, so probably Sir Colin, but Blackballed also in with a shout (see above). What's he got against the familiy Jago? That’s it. If I missed anything else of note, my apologies, but editorial space is at a premium these days. Plus many of you will have dozed off by now. Here’s how you got on: FA TROPHY DIVISION FA VASE DIVISION NEXT WEEK - Sat 15 October by 3pm To predict: yes Sunday has Real v Barca and Liverpool v Man City, but unfortunately we're playing on Saturday - so are stuck with this lot....

  24. I'd have been more confident v the Parkas of Plymouth, but can't really complain about a home tie against a Con S side. Who we beat a few years ago and are more worried about us than we are about them. Onwards to a famous win v Orient in the first round. (I trust). We need to get through to the second round as I'm not sure I can make the first round if it's on the Saturday. For our last 1st round proper match (Peterborough, 2008-9 - on a Sunday), I was at a wedding. On the Saturday. So what? Well it was in the bloomin' Lake District and I couldn't pursuade Mrs Jago to leave at 0600 on the Sunday morning to get down for the 2pm kick off. We are still together but it was a close call. Anyway, enough of me. COME ON YOU URCHINS.
