Livi Prediction League 2017/18

Post by Afro on Thu Aug 31, 2017 3:38 pm

Hello again! Apologies for the delay in getting this started this season - hopefully the re-introduction of the weekly predictions won't affect our good start to the season too much. A big congrats to Liviforever who took the title last season, following on from LiviCub in 2015/16 and Lexi Collector in 2014/15. Things kick off this year with Livi's trip to Greenock Morton on Saturday, August 26th...

Everyone on here will no doubt be familiar with the rules behind the PL, but for those requiring a recap or for any newbies, see below.


  • Post what you think the score will be in the match thread to enter for that week. This will count towards your overall points total. Your overall points will remain the same, should you miss a week.
  • 3 points for the correct score, 1 point for the correct result.
  • Correct result in cup games after extra-time and/or penalties. For example, a prediction of 0-0 but Livi to win on penalties will earn 1 point, should Livi win over 90 minutes or in extra-time. Correct score will count after 90 minutes.
  • Closest to the time for the first goalscorer wins a bonus point. In the event of a tie, bonus point will be split.
  • In the event of tied points come the end of the season, tiebreakers will be based on (1) number of correct results, then (2) number of correct scores.


Anyway, without further ado, introducing the entrants (so far) for the 2017/18 edition of the Prediction League:

Liviforever
Bertie Bassett
Afro
LiviCub
LiviLion
Durnford

Current leaderboard (last game; Dunfermline (A); 1-3 (FG 2 mins)):

Liviforever - 12 points
Afro - 8.5 points
Durnford - 6 points
Bertie Bassett - 5 points
LiviCub - 4.5 points
LiviLion - 3 points


As always, suggestions/criticisms/opinions are welcome throughout the season. I'll try my best to keep things updated on a fairly regular basis, or at least aim for it!

26th August '17 - Greenock Morton 0-1 Livingston (FG 60 mins)

Predictions were:

Liviforever: 2-1 (FG 8 mins) - 1 point
Bertie Bassett: 1-2 (FG 24 mins)
Afro: 0-2 (FG 39 mins) - 1 point
LiviCub: 3-2 (FG 8 mins) - 1 point

Three of five entrants off the mark (myself somewhat fortuitously). A trip into the relative unknown next week, with TNS away.

Do I not get a point for predicting correctly that TNS would go through?

Yeah I meant that 3-1 prediction as a home win, honest. Laughing
