This was the worst picking week I’ve had since starting this whole website. In case you’re wondering that’s 5 years worth of picking and including a title. Looking back at that length of time it’s quite amazing to read things from that era.
“Fabregas is not as good as Mata so its hard to see how Mourinho will work him into the team.” and “Liverpool without Suarez…..Sterling will improve and Brendan Rogers has built some depth… they can’t keep Gerrard too long”
Both managers have been fired or moved twice. None of the players are where they were. This site has been running a long time and this is the worst I’ve scored. Somehow, I still didn’t finish last!
The observant will notice that I’ve managed to get one of the SuperComputers working and it has been designed to think like a human (guess) and it did quite well. Next week I expect another to be fixed with a superior algorithm that I will run on a back-dated basis. It should win this year.
We have a winner!
Final Words Just a quick post this week…. it’s been a rough few weeks.
KMFE: “An extra pick for Dandy this week: Livingston 1 cookie – ALL THE COOKIES Aberdeen… ?????????????????????
Dandy didn’t get an exact but her team definitely got more cookies. Miss You.
This week Dandy loyal fan of Aberdeen passed away. This made putting the picks and results together a little less important but eventually the results needed to go up.
The Picks It does appear that the Super Computers are currently not operational.
KMFE: “I know this is not the right result for Watford. Happy birthday, JCE ;-)…” But it is! A whole point!
LJ: “Wanted to give the Hornets a win but the best I can do is a draw.” No skill then. It’s just all luck… you can give them a win by choosing them to have more goals that the opposition.
Results Looks like another good week for LJ who managed to max out points via exact picks and defeat me who only got two incorrect results. Who came up with this scoring system? It’s so unfair.
It pains me to put up a table with LJ at the top of it but here is the table with LJ at the top of it. This week sees a decent result for KMFE who every week looks like the above picture of Pep when she sees the final result.
It does look like the AA whiteboard needs a little fine tuning. Things will turn around.
Suicide Picks Disaster! Man City letting everyone down. Looks like a show down between bitter enemies!
It wasn’t a great week with some of the results being fairly unpredictable. As bad as Man U are, a home against at Crystal Palace should have yielded a win. As bad as Newcastle are, an away game at Spurs should have yielded a loss. Even Wolves being upset at home by Burnley was a minor update.
Looks like LJ got lucky with the exact – 8 incorrect picks is pretty remarkable!
It’s week THREE and already the suicide picks are over with the three remaining people remarkably failing to get a correct win! So Week 4 will begin with everyone back in the game. Shocking!
