Harry and Lloyd’s Fantasy Predictions GW’s 20-23
GW19 is not quite finished but as far as this competition goes it’s as over as Liverpool’s title hopes (I jest of course). The reduced GW18 saw predictably low-scoring with just 2pts being the pickup for most of our competitors. However LittleRedLacazette mirrored his impressive FPL form to take top-spot with 6pts with 2nd place shared among the masses – AllanBrallan, Padster, Elderzadi, Sweetbluetoffee, Eplnoob, Coys, Qwkliduzzit and Perun. Nobody got FGS correct (Billy Sharp in the 73rd minute).
In contrast, GW19 boasted an inflated fixture list and that was reflected in the 17pts required to take top-spot. That was done by one of our own and former H&L contributor DMC – nice work pal!. Second place was tied between Albox and WhoIsRonaldo with a whole host of respectable double-digit scores across the board this week, as Matt said – fair play everyone! Again, nobody got FGS (Periera in the 8th minute).
With another 4 game-weeks crammed into the next fortnight, we will once again be combining articles with the fixtures for game weeks 20-23 listed below. As always, either post your predictions for all the game-weeks in a single post or if you chose to do them separately, please comment on your original post to ensure Matt retains his sanity!
And so; Many Congratulations to LittleRedLacazette and DMC. Please email us here; firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize.
At the top of the league table, Treacle heads into the second half of the season with a 12-point lead over nearest challenger Ko Nay (Not sure if that’s a name change or a typo!!). Who will have to work hard if he or she wants to dispatch the lady at the top. That’s not to say this is a two-horse race, just 10 points separate 2nd and 11th. Game on.
THIS WEEK’S COMPETITION… Scoring couldn’t be simpler:
Correct Score = 3 points
Correct result = 1 point
Correct First Goalscorer of the game-week = 5 points
(to clarify this is who you think will score the 1st goal of the entire GW, not just in any game you choose to pick yourself!)
(Points are awarded on an ‘either/or’ basis, so you’ll either score 3 points for a Correct Score or 1 point for a Correct Result, these are never added together for a 4 point score.)
Tie-Breaker In the event that two or more members are tied as winners for the week the overall winner of the t-shirt will be decided by a tie-breaker. In order to do this, we ask that you also post your prediction of the time that the first goal of the week will be scored at. Nearest the pin wins.
The Rules… They are few; 1 entry per person and all entries must be submitted prior to the first game of the game-week. Kick-off this week comes on Tuesday at 6:00 pm. Once all the games have been played, we’ll count up the scores and the winner(s) will be announced in the following week’s competition article and each week our winner will walk away with an FF247 branded t-shirt! ). So just to recap all you need to do is; – Copy and paste the fixtures from below and pop your score prediction on each. – Tell us who you think will be the first goal scorer of the week (and that can be from any game regardless of your other predictions) – Add in your time of the first goal of the week for any potential tie-breaker situation.
Here are the fixtures, best of luck to you all!
