Discussion in 'I know The Score' started by Punter, Jul 5, 2015.
I had not looked at the scores before turning on laptop and reading emails which included your above message.
Knew straight away that I'd done well to okay - thanks. But I'm still 130 points behind you at top of table and out of the money.
25pts or more from tonight's 2 games and you'd get the overall highest weekly score too (as long as you outscore Howson).
My train of thought in the end was go with the gunners and if it flops at least it'll be doing City a favour and the hurt won't be as bad lol.
I've let that bugger Howson in now, the bastards been creeping up that board slowly but surely in the shadows and now he's rearing his big ugly head lol.
I wouldnt be suprised if theres a 100 point swing again this week.
Belated thanks Reg for your confident prediction on my forecasting abilities.
Sadly I let both of us down.
I was hoping to close in on you at top of table. Well I've closed in on you but we are both away from top of table.
I haven't had a look at previous years scores but I've a feeling this is probably the overall lowest scoring one for a decade. Usually there were the dead cert bankers ie Man U, Man City, Chelsea & Arsenal that players could rely on for points.
This year the Premiership table is unbelievable with last years relegation candidate Leicester topping it and Tottenham close by.
I've never had so many minus scores in the years I've played game.
I had to laugh at my own personal review:
Every year I send a message to the predictor organisers with some suggestions for improvement.
Okay they usually ignore as a perishing know-all, but that don't stop me.
So now it's coming to the beginning of the end of season I'd like to draw up a list of common complaints or suggestions that others have.
Could I politely ask anybody who has any ideas to forward them to me either on forum for others to discuss, or as a PM.
Thanks in advance
I'm pleased you mentioned that. One of my mates could not decide what scores to enter so deliberately left them blank. But he placed his Bonus chip for one of those games. I don't know if he got the correct score X Bonus but still made me think.
I have a sneaky feeling though they do the autofill to keep people interested so they can comeback and join in the comp anytime they wish but in a season like this one it's actually proving an advantage which is wrong.
I'd also scrap the 20 points for a draw, it should be 10 points across the board for a correct forecast 1 X or 2 and the usual 30 points for a correct scorecast.
