I'm getting worried now.
I was in a Xmas club once
and the Treasurer ran off with money on Xmas Eve.
38 pounds 60 it was which was a lot of money in those days.
Could History have repeated itself.
I'm cursed.
Never again!

I feel really mean now.
The Treasurer has come back with all the money
and the proceeds of a bet at Brighton
on a favourite at evens.
Happy Days.
Sorry

Reflecting on this season's competition...

What are your thoughts?

I acknowledge that I went too crazy with the BOBBs. @Armstrong_11 pretty much finished 2nd because of them. I agree with him that the rewards were a bit too much and skewed the general ethos and purpose of the predictor competition. Maybe never having a points reward higher than 25 would be best...

Enjoyed it.
Bit embarrassed
because I did really well on the last couple of BOBBS which I suggested.
Pretty ropey on the other unimportant part of the competition.
Saved my season.
Agree limit points allocation but perhaps have more of them?
But ignore my suggestions as I'm clearly ITK on these matters
Like a good BOBB me.
Thanks to organisers must have been difficult to keep up.
All forgiven.

Stirling job, apart from the end bit where you messed up my total and gave me 7th instead of 1st but still as its your first season I'll let that pass.
We used to have BOBBs that were worth 10-15 points extra and they were spread out at about every 5th or 6th game and included cup games.
Yep, you done a real good job with this @npearl4spurs, well done... (y)

Thanks npearl4spurs for running the comp and to spurs mental (you did get the comp going) and well done to Greyfox on winning.

My only thoughts are should we change the "1st scorer" to "1st Spurs scorer"? I feel dirty if I predict an opposition player as the goalscorer.

I am hugely honoured to win the competition in a very tight finish. I would like to thank @npearl4spurs and @spursmental for all the work and effort they put in to make it happen, my Mum and Dad, without whom I wouldn't be here, friends, family, my cat and anyone else who knows me including BOBB ;)

Condolences to Armstrong11 and the others who ran it close.

IMHO the scoring does need to be looked at, my idea would be to award 5 points for correct 1st scorer in each half, 5 points for HT and FT score and 1 point for a correct result and limit Bobb to a maximum of 15 points.


PS where's my dosh?

Good competition! Thanks for all the work involved.

Maybe next year I will remember to enter every game but happy to finish mid-table

To keep the prediction section pure
separate it from the BOBB and run both independently.
Wouldn't mean any more work in fact might be easier.

And no I haven't got time to help.
I'm retired and catching up on all the things
that didn't get done while I was working.
Unpaid!

Enjoyed it. Pretty decent amount of effort was required to run it so a big ' thanks' to all involved with doing it. Wish I remembered to do it every game. Will do next season.

Might I suggest a slight change to next season's comp? I hope I don't sound salty since I am quite happy with my performance but can we have some random, post-round urine tests? I'll take pride in my finishing highest in the table of those NOT under suspicion of the 'Leicester Diet' or machiavelian manipulation of weekly BOBBs...looking at you @Grey Fox and @npearl4spurs .:cautious::D
