The above seems fixed, as the current leader after the 26th June matches is still out in front. Just to prove a point I matched his selections for the past 10 matches, and still dropped massively down the league table,
Its hardly competitive when all his predictions are 1-0 or 0-1
so not really honest play. Its not as if there is a major price to win, so how can that person manipulate 1-0 or 0-1 and be so dishonest. At least 13 matches were not as above as draws or higher scores.
I was doing it for the fun, but cannot now see the point. This from a Genuine Palace supporter since 1957.
Its not sour grapes, but its taken all the competitive edge away, and quite sad really.
*****Does anyone want to comment on all this*****

Unless you know another players password you can't know their prediction until after the results are known

Is the OP for real?

What on earth is dishonest about predicting there will only be 1 goal in a match? Of the 40 games played so far, 10 have been 0-0 at HT & 14 have finished 1-0.

 


A stockbroker urged me to buy a stock that would triple its value every year. I told him, at my age, I don't even buy green bananas!

I can confirm there has been no fixing going on - every prediction that is currently in the database has been made before the kick off.

I think Woody must have had too many Fosters and been out in the Aussie sun for too long when he posted this

Some people are like Slinkies not really good for anything, but you cant help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

Glad I got some responses, but I didnt mean its been fixed by the website, merely that it seems to me that the selections havent been made in the true spirit of things. ? To just predict 1-0 either way surely handicaps the members who have tried to forecast a halftime and a fulltime score and therefore just minimise the losses that a true selector would suffer by 2-0/1-2/3-0 etc etc
Hope you are all enjoying the matches and hopefully England will perform substantially in the playoffs.

To be fair though, Woody, if he is getting the correct result but not the correct score it wouldn`t matter if he predicted everything as 10-0 or 0-10.

 


Is this a five minute argument, or the full half hour? [Link]

I'm looking forward to tonight's games. I think Columbia should just beat Senegal by 1-0 and then England will rest less players so I'm thinking a 1-0 win there as well

As an aside, out in Tenerife we run a season long premier league prediction competition for every single match (2 points for a correct result, 5 points for the exact result) and the guy who walked away with it this year never had any team to score more than 2 goals and he used to win a shed load of points with 1-0's.

1-0 is normally a good shout at this level of football unless you have grossly mis-matched teams.
