Feeling happier tonight, Newman?
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.
Yes, but that gap was 290pts a couple of weeks ago, 130pts is nothing.
25pts or more from tonight's 2 games and you'd get the overall highest weekly score too (as long as you outscore Howson).
I got lucky there, if Everton hadn't scored that 93rd minute penalty, Newman would've had 175pts and equalled the overall highest score.
Gameweek 23 TalkSport Review
Picked the wrong game to put my banker bonus on, I had narrowed it down to Arsenal or West ham and picked bleeding Arsenal, I even had the 2-0 West Ham.
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.
Good luck with your banker bonus tmw Slick, im guessing that your on the Spurs home win this week.
I wouldnt be suprised if theres a 100 point swing again this week.

Showing why I was top of the league there
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.
TalkSport Gameweek 26 Review
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
First one that springs to mind is that people who don't submit predictions shouldn't have their predictions done automatically by the system. If I think of any more I'll post them up.
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 second what RC says, in fact I'd give them -10 points for every missed game.
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.
