  1. I am like many others, after seeing his first few games (with the commentator stating "poor pass by Keillor-Dunn" many times) I thought this guy should be no where near the team sheet. However I will give the lad credit, he has made me eat my words. He is still prone to mistakes, but he is now establishing himself as a fourth tier footballer (I did not think I would ever have said that early doors). He seems to play with more confidence now, and as others have said, other clubs will be taking note. Now I am hoping he will stay and develop further.
  2. Thanks, but my nerves are shot. 18 games to get it right. Maybe I should give Shez a call
  3. Not looking good for me. The first time since I have been predicting that I am in the relegation zone. Indecision cost me. I was all set to predict 2-2 (HT 0-1) and bottled it, as I thought our away performances had dropped off. Silly me. Now I am just like the Latics, looking to finish in 15th place.
  4. Thanks very much @oafcmetty and @Bristolatic for setting this up and all the hard work that has gone into this for the members. I like to think that it will help me to improve my predicting (but that's the kind of fantasy world I live in). Love the banner as well. Once honed and greased, this prediction league will be the envy of the EFL/EPL.
  5. The link below is from today's Melbourne Age with Kewell trying to drum up Aussie footballers to go to Europe. Will any turn up at Boundary Park? (I doubt it). https://www.theage.com.au/sport/soccer/go-north-young-man-kewell-says-aussie-talent-should-be-playing-in-europe-20210115-p56udu.html
  6. @Bristolatic @oafcmetty Well, I am the latest victim of the system not recording my prediction. I used the same laptop I have been predicting most of my predictions on this year I predicted a halftime score of 0-0 and a 2-1 win with McAleny as first scorer. So I miss out on the 3 points Because of the problems other predictors have had I always wait for the system to confirm my prediction has be recorded. It lied! As the game started a 2am for me, I predicted about 4 hours before the match. From tonight I now have to take
  7. It is the way the input site is set up. The Latics score is always first box (on the left) whether they are home or away, and I suspect because we were away the Southend score was entered in the first box, ie the Latics box. It does state that Latics score is the first box on the input sheet, but I do think there needs to be a note on there to highlight this fact more. It seems other predictors have had the same problem in the past.
  8. Hey, just a moment. My lad supports Geelong, so pull your neck in. However, in your defence (to me) all AFL supporters are moaners, My lad moans that Geelong have not won enough flags, because they are in the finals almost every year, but very rarely win the flag. When they lose to Richmond he will tell me how poor his team is. I just wish the Latics had been as "unsuccessful" as Geelong over the last 30 years. Lucky you. You will be able to watch the final in Queensland, with 2 Victorian teams playing
  9. Can we call the prediction season over now and preserve the Premier league table as is? It's just that I get some satisfaction from certain players being in certain positions (me and someone else).
  10. After watching the highlights and reading all the comments on here. I am glad I cancelled my ifollow subscription. It's only one game I know. I hope Latics can make me regret my decision.
  11. Has anyone actually watched Australian footy? Yep, quite a bit on TV and in person (Come on Victory!). In my opinion the A league is around upper League 1 standard, and the 2 Clubs (Sydney United & Adelaide) he has played for, are some of the better teams in the A league. Seeing Latics are in League 2 I see Blackwood as a positive step. Ex Latics player Joseph Mills who played for FGR and now Northampton (I'm surprised) played for Perth Glory here a few seasons ago, but could not catch the team on a regular basis. I did not rate him much when I saw him in the A
  12. That quote dates you. Young people won't understand
  13. I think I screwed the first prediction up because I did not use a capital in my name, so I submitted another one exactly the same with the CAPIAL. Sorry for the mess up.
