Correct, assuming you've supped on too much London Pride.

Consolidation season?

Is that a technical term, for "blooding a few youngsters" ? :oops:

As I am away from first thing in the morning for a week, here is the updated table after today's games.
Generally scoring was pretty good, although poor old Leatherman is doing something of a Fulham at the moment! Chin up and you'll start scoring!
The winning score was 4 points this week, achieved by Exile and SaddlerCrewe. Well done to you two again for winning a week, but I do hope it doesn't start an epidemic where people just copy Exile's predictions :roll: Not that I'm accusing SaddlerCrewe of anything! :wink:

Next Saturday's games thread (week 5) is already up as I won't be back till late Friday and that doesn't leave much time for predictions!!

Copy Exile's predictions???

Why on earth would anyone do that?

Although, purely by coincidence, I am minded now to post my predictions after those of certain others because I feel it is lucky.

This could get interesting. :D

Purely by coincidence should I post early, my first picks post may or may not be updated immediately prior to kick off! :mrgreen:

Updated table for week 5 after this weekend's games. A very good weekend of scoring with the likes of Posh and the 'plastic Utd smackers' all winning! So much so, that there were no blobs at all this week and the winning score was an excellent 5 points, achieved by itasaddler - well done to you!

A slightly stunted set of fixtures next Saturday but there are still 7 games, so a thread will be set up on Tuesday.

Cooking on gas, finally.

Customary wobbly start to the season is now over (I always have them, I always finish in the top 3*)

Let the traverse up Mount Victory commence!

:D






* Except when I don't. Alright, top 5. 1,2,2,3,3,4,5 etc I could go on. And probably will.

Updated table after this weekend's reduced fixture list.
Generally pretty healthy scoring with the help of some of the 'biggies' securing expected home wins which a lot went for. Maybe only Bradford let a few down! The winning score was 4 points, achieved by Sheffield Saddler and canadiansaddler - well done to you two!

We now have co-leaders in the shape of itasaddler and SaddlerCrewe, although itasaddler is top of the tree due to alphabetical order as well as he is the only one who has had a 5 point haul!

Next weekend's thread should be good to go on Tues eve.

It is said in Viking sagas that the first inkling of the approach of Harold Godwinson and the Saxon army at Stamford Bridge was a cloud of dust.

The river ran red with Viking blood that day and the bones of the fallen were left to whiten in the field for 10 years. The Vikings never returned in any force.

I am that cloud of dust on the horizon.

Feel the weight of history in the air.

Here is the table after today's games. Poor scoring generally, mainly because Posh drew at home and Leyton Orient continued their poor start to the season, which affected a lot of scores. There were a few blobs and lots of 1s, but the winning score was 4 points, by 1933, well done!

The thread for Tuesday's games (and there is 1 on Wednesday) is already up and running (week 8)

I successfully navigated my way around all the points this week.

Skilled seamanship at its best.

Nice to see quality drifting to to the top.

No matter what self-absorbed hot air comes from a more perverted predictor (no doubt with the aid of a thesaurus, as Sound Out suggests :D :wink: ), the facts speak for themselves.

Can you look up the following words in your thesaurus, Saigon and post a suitable reply to describe your current predicament?

Pathetic
Loser
Sliding
Inexporably
Down
Table

:D :wink:

It appears that Jolly-Johnny has made a mistake with this weeks table - he forgot to include my predictions.

To save you looking them up, they were:
Barnsley 3 v 5 MK Dons
Crewe 2 v 1 Vale
and Walsall 3 v 1 Preston.

Please amend the table accordingly, Thank you.

Well, what a strange set of results last night! Not only did the 'not so super saddlers' take a 4-0 thumping on the chin, but almost every other team dropped their form for the evening. As a result the whole prediction field ended up with 0 or 1! That is, except one! With a mighty score of 2 points (!), well done to Leatherman, who is the week's winner.

Saturday's thread is already up and running so better luck to everyone!

Definitely a more 'normal' scoring week yesterday with some more predictable results that gave people their points. No blobs, for only the second week this season, and the winning score was 4 points, achieved by Welsh_Saddler and longdogs, well done to both of you!

Things are pretty tight at the top, but it is very early days, so lots can happen over the course of 46 prediction weeks! Next Saturday's thread will be up on Tues eve.
