Feb 01 Results

This year has been somewhat of a challenge in terms of picks and this week is yet another week where we had a last-to-first transition.

Last week I scored a massively useless 3 points (a total which should have been 11 points as explained in my post) that sunk me to the bottom of the table and this week a not too shabby 13 points led me to the heights of success.

First to Last!

The biggest indicator of the volatility of results is how positions have shifted with a top half of green arrows and a bottom half of red arrows.

How are the Aggregate Scores

ME continues to lead but LJ is nipping at his heals. The Super Computers are still performing well with all three sitting in the top half of the table.

Weekly Comments

JE: “I’m rubbish at predicting scores really crap!”
AA: “Guessy McGuessersen of guesstown!”
ME: “Because of time restraints I have had to guess the rest…”

There seems to be a common theme across comments this year. There is definitely a level of honesty and self-realization on the part of some but I tend to think that there is a level of humble-brag on the part of a few!

ME: “But Spuds will just pip Man Pretty as they have a very settled squad, no injuries and the best manager….not, not and not. “

But you picked Spuds to win like you do every single week. I think this does provide evidence that you do guess! You’re just luckier than all of us!

January 21 Picks and Results

First things first. Here were the predictions. AB didn’t pick this week so he got the honor of being Mark Lawrenson for the day.

Guesses

I calculated the scores earlier in the week but as you can see I was less than happy to have to post them. I’m not sure but a 14 point differential between first and last may be the biggest ever.

Awful!

To fall 12 places in a week is very disappointing but I do feel a little bit better seeing that JE only claimed 1 spot above me. It’s been a bad couple of weeks for the Trafford fan.

Weekly Comments
Thank you for your comments. I’ll try and incorporate them again in the coming weeks.

This Weeks Retrospective Analysis
I thought I’d write my analysis for the week so that I could learn from my mistakes and improve in the future. Feel free to use this tactic.

Aston Villa vs Watford  1-1 
Villa will win 2-1 but it will upset Harry Hornet if I pick against my team!

Bournemouth vs Brighton 1-1
The cherries should win handily but I there have been draws recently

Everton vs Newcastle 2-1
I suspect that Everton’s run will come to an end but I’m not picking that

Leicester vs West Ham 2-0
Finally a gimme result. Not sure what the score will be so I’ll guess.

Sheffield Utd vs Man City 0-2
Could be anything! Pretty sure the Citeh will win though

Wolves vs Liverpool 2-2
An obvious 1-2 pick but I really want Liverpool to not win.

Man Utd vs Burnley 2-0

OGS has this team turned around – they’re back to the Glory Glory Man United days! They’re unstoppable with Lingard up front.

Chelsea vs Arsenal 2-1
Fat Frank will guide them to a victory.

Spurs vs Norwich 2-0
This result is dependent on Ericsen showing up. If he doesn’t it will probably be 2-1.

Next Weeks Analysis
Copy whatever the Supercomputers are doing. You would think I might know what the method is but I need to do some algorithm study. All I know is that SC2 is doing really well and SC1 has had a few first places recently…. I should really just copy SC1 at this point.

Leaving me in the dust…. the robots they are alive…

Juanny Cinco is a Watford Fan!

Why Picks are Hard Reason 1
I thought I’d start a new feature!

This week it’s understanding where players are – both physically and in their head. It’s hard enough to keep track of who is playing for who sometimes. Even harder is to know when someone is truly playing.

This year’s example is Eriksen. He has been “playing” for Spuds all year but has he been trying? Who knows! Well… he’s off to Italy where that effort will be appreciated.

Eriksen Finally Gets To Leave

Summary For All

This is main page for the mid-season summary – the series is linked on the right. I thought it would be interesting to post the average table as selected by everyone.

Shocking!

It’s quite amazing that despite dropping only 2 points we collectively don’t rate Liverpool as the number one team!

Hope you enjoy the summary!

Midseason 2019 – SC2

This post is part of a series (see menu bar on the right). I’ve individualized the half-season results for everyone with the same charts and images to make it easier to see how you are doing.

Your Table
This is how the table looks based solely on your predictions and as if every game had been perfectly guessed.

Predicted Table

Pick Grid
This shows all the picks you’ve made this year in home and away format, the results of those picks (exact, difference, or miserable failure), and finally a table that shows how you have done overall by team. You can use this to adjust your projections moving forward (and assuming current form continues through the second half for all teams).

This is how you are doing against all the other players. In the cases where the number of games is less than the total played it is because I’ve kindly only included weeks where both parties participated.
