Half-Season Stats for JCE

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).

Half a Season of Guesses

Predicted Week Over Week
This is how you have the teams going week over week.

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.

Hope this summary was useful, interesting… or something.

Half-Season Summary

Half a season is complete and this is the current group summary- where we rank against each other and what our average table looks like. I’ve created a single page for each user and you can link through to each using the “Series” on the menu bar over on the right-hand side.

Overall Leaders
It’s been good for me so far as once again I end the halfway point in the lead. I just need to avoid a second-half Watford slump… or a Liverpool special (leading at Christmas and failing to hold on).

*This chart conveniently begins with 2008/09 as the failing to win from top position was fairly common when the EPL was still competitive.

So I’m sure you are wondering where you rank and …. drumroll…..here is the table. This table has not accounted for some people not playing each week which is why some scores are low (AA only played 14 weeks, for example).

Here I used a more Formula 1 based scoring system – admittedly somewhat arbitrary choice of points but gives a slightly different view. It gives AM some credit for his better 3rd / 4th place finishes over BE despite scoring lower overall – it rewards performance consistency.

In case you were curious- I created a table based on the average of all the players that picked all 19 games. This was to remove the Man U, Liverpool, Man City, and Spuds bias that everyone brings into their weekly picks. Check out ME’s table for example – Spuds walking it!

And Finally – a summary that shows where everyone picked a team and where that team is. Obviously, Burnley and Huddersfield are my this year’s West Brom – should I keep picking them to draw and win?

Week 20 Predictions

And the second-half of the season officially kicks off with Watford about 67.5% safe!

But enough of that… what about this week’s predictions?

Second Half Picks

Still waiting for LS to pick or he will get 0-0 defaults.

*I usually would put up a “timely” reminder image such as Mourinho looking at his watch but I also need to maintain the gratuitous Robert Plant posting (vague-link is that LS is a Wolves fan).

Time Hasn’t Done This Plant any Favours

Weekly Comments

ME: “Is it time to sack Pep? Or will his team play properly this week? If they lose this one KMFE will not have a happy new year…. but it’s got to be a win! So happy new year to you both!”
KMFE says not to get too excited though I did mention that Pep might leave at the end of the year. Any more slip ups and it will not be a happy house!

JE: “

😂
😂

Flew through the picks. Just typed in numbers that seemed to make sense. Zero points for me then. Actually united will win three nil. So will have some.
My gut said Liverpool one arsenal two for some reason so have mentally compensated. Prob means Liverpool will win. For f::::&/£;@38!:7cks sake. They’re going to win the league aren’t they?… my worst nightmare. Why have city turned to shit? Why? I cry.
Watford to smash the sheet out of the Geordie shovel of crap.
Anyway much love and hope these comments are welcomed.
Ps united will prob lose and will get zero points.
Love ya Bruv x”

I loved this comment so much I didn’t want to edit it. It’s tough being a United fan…lol

KMFE:” I’m not loving our form (or luck) at ALL right now, but I will NOT pick against us”
Confirmation of what everyone already knows!

Week 19 Picks and Results

Been a busy week this week preparing the “half-time” statistics so just the basic prediction and results this week. And what a crazy week it was! Looked like KMFE and JE were going to be a nice tidy 1-2 until a last day exact moved ME up to the fore… but not many chances for exacts this week!

Overall

Prognosticator of the Week

There’s something impressive about picking the upset of the week as an exact and still landing somewhere in the middle of the pack. That said, no one can deny it wasn’t an unbelievably good guess! Well done LJ.

Week 18 – Results

Don’t forget Boxing Day fixtures

I’m sure this is accurate historical basis

This week the results were quite surprising… not the 2-3 loss at Etihad, not the 2-6 loss to the Spuds… or even that United look better without Mourinho-ho-ho.

The surprise result is that LJ won?!

WTF?

I’ll be posting the half-season summary next time out.. this will include all the head-to-heads, your predicted table against the actual table and anything else you ask for (within reason).

Week 18 Picks – Merry Christmas!

Welcome to the jam-packed Winter schedule. Without further ado the picks are ALL in.

Who is Santa going to Give a Surprise Win.

Shockingly, LJ, got an exact this week with the Wolves v Liverpool game to take an early lead. Don’t panic because based on prior form I don’t expect LJ to maintain this level of accuracy.

Just a short post this week with a Happy Holiday from the Hornets:

Ho Ho Ho Ho…rnets

A Happy Holiday from the Trafford:

Mourin…. Ho Ho Ho Ho

Weekly Comments

LS: ” Can’t back against your own team, no matter what your head says! #wolvesayewe”
You get over it. Even AM backed Liverpool over GGMU last week and I am always picking against Watford. On the bright side you’ve won as many times as you’ve lost so it’s not the worst strategy.
This guy was wet in the stands watching too.

Obligatory Robert Plant the Way he Used to Look for KMFE

ME: “Thanks for all of your efforts and hard work on this weekly fun.”
Nearly half-way through the year. Wonder if you or AM are having more fun?

ME: “Top teams will all win this week. Spurs only just and Man Utd will do a Chelski and have their “Thank God for that” moment.”
You think of the Potato Chickens as a top team? You’re about to lose your manager.

JE: “Wonder what will happen to my team this week with ogs? Fingers crossed we smile, have fun and pass forward, perhaps a little jogging. “
Remember what he did at Cardiff? That…. ?

As for jogging…

Jogging … Jogging Joggggggggiiiiiiinng

KMFE:”What will Arsenal replace St. Totteringham’s Day with now that Tottenham can beat them so reliably? Expecting Man Utd to get a little extra spring with OGS at the helm — the one game bounce…”

“Oh, Arse” Day! When Spurs are too far ahead to catch.
