2016-17 Predict 6 EPL tipping comp

Good morning all

Seeing that the EPL draw is now out I thought it might be a good time to kick off the new 2016-17 Predict 6 comp As some of you might know FT has decided to take a break from the comp for a season and I have happily agreed to take over this season until it goes pear shaped and then I will run for the hills 😃

Looking for anyone who is wanting to join up for the comp , please just make a comment saying you want in and your in

Might be one slight change this year , something that FT and I would like to test out , we are going to run a double points round How it works is you nominate when doing your tips that you would like this particular round to be your double points round and if you scored 5 points you will score 10 points This will only be allowed for rounds that have 6 games , if for some reason we have a 7 game round (that has happened in the past due to FA Cup commitments ,European ) these rounds will be excluded from double points

Again if we have a tie at the end of the season , the tips of the people involved in the tie will be calculated to see who has the best for and against and will be declared the winner

We went very close to this occurring in the last comp

To people who haven’t been involved and are confused what actually occurs I will give you a brief example

You get 3 points for a correct result and score , 1 point for picking the right winning team and no points for an incorrect result

So I will nominate 6 games

West Ham V Tottenham
Man U v Man City
Chelsea v Liverpool
Southampton v Everton
Arsenal v Leicester
West Bromwich Albion v Stoke

You would then pick your scores after much studying and contemplation and trepidation

West Ham 11 Spurs 0
Man U 2 Man City 2
Chelsea 3 Liverpool 1
Southampton 1 Everton 1
Arsenal 2 Leicester 1
West Bromwich Albion 2 Stoke 2

So the results come out

West Ham 11 Spurs 0
Man U 4 Man City 1
Chelsea 2 Liverpool 2
Southampton 3 Everton 3
Arsenal 0 Leicester 2
West Bromwich 1 Stoke 1

So your points would be

West Ham 11 Spurs 0 ……3 points
Man U 2 v Man City 2 …0 points
Chelsea 3 Liverpool 1 …0 points
Southampton 1 Everton 1 …1 point
Arsenal 2 Leicester 1 …0 points
W Brom Albion 2 Stoke 2 …1 point

Which would be a total of 5 points , pretty easy hey , if you nominated double points you’d obviously get 10 points

You’d think being massive fans of the game actually helps , sometimes it works in the opposite way

Also the banter and sledging in this comp is pretty lively and a hell of a lot of fun 😆

Each week after every round I will post the ladder updates and next rounds , but at times you will need to be patient , I have a family , kids , run a business , run our Fantasy League comp and will probably end up coaching my sons basketball team again until football season starts and possibly his rugby league side next year (I’ve been approached and want to do it if I can work out a schedule 😮 )

Most weeks I will probably post the tables on a Monday night

So I’d like to welcome all old players back and any new players that want to join

PS If you do support an EPL side please let me know , I’d like to try and get games every week that will have Forum members sides playing each other and creating more interest

If you don’t support a side just pick West Ham United as they are going to be the new superclub of the EPL , I’d suggest staying away from Tottenham , Liverpool or either Manchester sides as Tottenham are going to join Leeds in League 1 ,Liverpool and the Manchester sides just suck the big one

Have a great weekend all

Cheers Happy

I’m not very good at this sort of thing but I’ll have a go. I don’t have a team in the EPL but the old man supports WHAM so I will follow them to.
