Barry and Paul’s Predictions – The Final Reckoning

Welcome to Barry and Paul’s Predictions – The Final Reckoning. GW38 brought the season to a close in typical GW38 style. The final game-week of the Premier League often throws ups some unusual final scorelines and this season was no different; a 9 goal thriller in Spurs last home game at Wembley, City scoring a solitary goal in their win at St Mary’s, and of course my beloved Newcastle putting 3 past Chelsea without reply – Happy days!

What started as an informal and innocent comment on another random article, asking you what you thought the game-weeks scores would be that week, has turned into something of an FF247 staple article now! Careful what you say around here folks, it can often rob you of hours of your life! That it then took on a life of it’s own is thanks to the continued engagement and enthusiasm from you lovely lot – so a massive thank you from both myself and my fellow Chuckle Barry (Matt) for making this happen.

We would also like to announce that Barry and Paul are going global, which is a more exciting way of saying that we’ll be running a competition throughout this year’s World Cup finals.

Some of you will be taking a well deserved break from all things ‘Fantasy’ this summer, but if you fancy trying your hand at predicting results throughout this years World Cup then this is the place to come. We’ll be posting up more details before you can say ‘England are going home’ or ‘England fans clashed with local police in Russia’.

Before then we still have two weeks of results to reveal, and of course this season’s overall winner, so without further ado, lets see who did what, and how!

In GW37 it was Mr.Bean who took top spot; 13pts were just enough to see off second placed Neelbasus and DenPerryDidit, who both finished on 12pts. A whole host of teams were just behind them on 11pts in third, I’d tell you who they were, but Barry (Matt) didn’t tell me, so if you’re really interested then shout out and I’m sure he’ll let you know!

Weekly Leader board (GW37)
Winner = Mr.Bean 13pts
2nd = Neelbasus and DenPerryDidit 12pts
3rd = Lots of people 11pts

In the final game-week, 12pts were enough to make Sam10 the winner, closely followed by yours truly with 11pts. Third place was a tie; Constantine and Albox both picking up a solid 10pts.

Weekly Leader board (GW38)
Winner = Sam10 12pts
2nd = Rosco 11pts
3rd = Constantine and Albox 10pts

Congrats Mr.Bean and Sam10, please email us at contact@fantasyfootball247.co.uk to get your hands on that FF247 t-shirt.

OVERALL WINNERS(S)
So who won the 2017/18 Barry and Pauls Predictions overall league title I here you cry! Did Init do enough to hold on to top spot despite predicting a 0-11 score for Man City in GW38?

Well in short no.

It was apparent from the get-go that when it comes to this predicting lark, two of you are seemingly a cut-above the rest. Coys and DenPerryDidit have been making this look easy from day one, and in the end, it’s perhaps fitting that they both finished the season with an epic total of 221pts. Perhaps the pressure got too much for our illustrious leader? There have been rumours that perhaps in the name of good sportsmanship, he simply became a little ‘overly generous’ in his predictions (Southampton v Man City 0 -11 anyone?), we’ll never know. Init finished the season just 2pts behind our leaders; 219pts wasn’t enough to for Init to win it (I know, I know) but it was a bloody good effort all the same.

Congratulations Coys and DenPerryDidit. Perhaps it would have been better if Init had won, because now he needs to provide not one but two suitable prizes for your achievements, over to you boss! Email the site please both.

  2. @Cookie. I can’t be bothered to read it – got a condensed version you can give me? :D

  3. Had some time to look at my MLS side, Brought in some SKC defenders who are not in the 18 to force Callens and Hoesen in and now will wait on Quintero from Minnesota to see what he does. If he does well let him sub in, if not I will go transfer in Piatti in for my midfield scrub.

    Think that is the big advantage of having the bench guys go early in the GW, you can force them in early when they do well and it gives you more options with the last bench option. I prefer when one team has a bye, but if there is none, at some point I try to force my good scores in by bringing in a scrub that is not in the 18 when the team sheet comes out. I don’t want a one minute debut from some guy I never expected to play ruining my chance to have a good score auto sub in.

  4. Plan B is a goer if FIFA don’t come through.

  5. Would love to get some people’s thoughts on GW39 players to bring in. Surprised it’s not rammed on here tonight given how important the closing stages of the season are. It was much busier on other sites last week than it is on here this week, which is a sound comparison to make :cool: :whistle:

    • Keita and Fekir, get them I’m before the price rise.

  6. Shit! I was supposed to have posted this a few days ago, but I’ve been busy doing absolutely nothing! Firstly thanks to Matt and Rosco for running the predictions competition, i will take joint 10th and hopefully a ff247 shirt in the pipeline for winning a gw! Look forward to any similar games in the future! Clap, secondly, the international friendlies against our fellow Malaysian fantasisers has ended in a 7-7 draw! After being 6-2 down and coming back to take a 6-7 lead, i’m slightly disappointed we didn’t go on to win 6-8! BUT! Fortunately the game was decided on overall points scored, which we won 134-149, so thanks and well done to everyone who let me use their teams in this fun event! If you do have a new MLS league or World cup fantasy league and you would like me to share it via fb in Malaysia I’m only to happy to! Thanks again! ;-)

    • @Padster, thanks for running the competition and inviting site members to the competition. One heck of a comeback. Which makes me wonder if perhaps our team had chips saved up over the last few weeks that gave us an advantage. :)

      • Thanks guys it’s been fun, to answer your question Mito, i think their 1st mistake was when 7 of their players to our 0, played the FH chip in the 1st BGW,which we still managed to win, most players kept their BB and TC for the DGW’s in which we won both, but in between that we had BGW 35 which most of us played our FH chip and trounced them 22-0! I can only imagine they struggled to get a balance between blank players and DGW players around this time! If anybody is interested now there is time you are quite welcome to view the sheets! ;-) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xwmgBWjPORSry_I-aLiN2ZIDbuqmLcxK3yHOhPWNKV4/edit?usp=drivesdk

    • Well done and many thanks for running this one Padster. We will have one of each of those coming soon hopefully.

    • Hey Padster,

      Thanks for running this show. Happy to take part, it was very interesting.
