Wow!

First time I've been able to access the site for a month. How frustrating not to be able to post a team and see my chances in this comp go down the drain.

Oh well nobody died.

Welcome back Sea foot!

Report on Predictions for Round 47


Welcome to Khobar & Mark Kelly who took part in the Challenge for the first time in this round. Khobar took the honours by registering ten hits compared to Mark's eight but that eight in the results table should really have an asterisk next to it. Firstly, Mark entered only ten names in his prediction, something I didn't notice until the deadline had passed. As there was no left back in Mark's line-up it's a cast iron certainty that he meant to include Azpi in his team. Secondly, Mark did include Matic in his line up, which meant that, in effect, there were really only nine names in his team. That's actually eight out of nine then, not eight out of eleven.

Congratulations to NorwarBlue on his third 11/11 of the season. That's the sixtieth maximum recorded so far and I think it must rank as one of the best. Granted, all of us would have guessed the entire back five even if Jose hadn't confirmed it before the match but there were options in the middle of the park and the fact that NB was the only member to predict Schurrle's role in the side shows what a tough call that was to make. Very well played NB.

Those eleven hits gave NorwayBlue a one hit advantage over ten other members who each scored ten hits. Every one of them thought Nando would be in the team. So many high scores contributed to an average hits per entry score of 9.40 which is just outside the top-ten average scores of the season.

The average hit count has definitely been on the up recently; almost half of those sixty 11/11s have come in the last six weeks. Remember the days when they were few and far between? In the first six weeks of the season there were only five in total. Check out the current form table for further confirmation of this fact. Notice the AR numbers in particular.

It's as you were at the top of the leaderboard, well nearly. Sleeping Dave padded his lead over aussieblue53 by a further two points. That's a thirty-six point lead now which I'd say is looking more secure than a three-one first leg lead in a Champions League quater-final. :(

Third placed Bristol Blue would no doubt have been hoping to claw back a few more points on aussieblue but had no joy in this round. He matched ABs nine hits today so the gap between second and third remains twenty-two points. With a minimum of 7 games remaining in the season, I think that BB is going to find it just as tough to catch aussieblue, as aussieblue will find it to catch Dave. Of course BB's points have come from two fewer entries than the rest of the top four so that's pretty spectacular scoring.

The group phase of The Read Jose's Mind Challenge Champion's League is over. Sixteen members have progressed to the knock-out stage. These include SZB LOVES CHELSEA, Gaurav_blue, The Psycho Pianist and A Blue Essien who won their RJMC_CL groups today and secured home advantage in the first knock-out round. There were some close calls however.

Bristol Blue scored an injury-time equaliser to take a point from his game with group winner akshayathreya. That point would have taken BB through but for the injury time winner 3Sphinx scored against Original 21. The win saw 3Sphinx claim second spot and a place in the last sixteen by a single point. His wasn't the narrowest squeeze into the knock-out phase however. Norway Blue and Inferno both finished on ten points in the Osgood Group. The first tie-break is the aggregate score in the games between the two members. Inferno won their first meeting by ten hits to nine but NB took the return by eleven hits to nine for an aggregate win by twenty hits to nineteen.

In the Fatty Faulke Group the top two each finished on fourteen points. Gaurav_blue and Bob Singleton couldn't be separated on head-to-head results either. Bob's injury-time hit secured a draw in their match in this round. That meant both games between these two were drawn ten-ten. It therefore came down to hits difference to split them and Gaurav had the edge there to nail down top spot and a home tie in the next round.

The draw for that next round will be made on Friday and the ties will be played using predictions for the Premier League game with Swansea on 13th April.

Two more things before I wrap-up. Congratulations to Sciatika who completed his group with a 100% record. It is only fair to note however that there were just two active players in the Gallacher Group but at least that was one more than in the Bentley Group. Apologies Aussieblue53, I know you'll be glad to go through but I'm guessing that you have liked to face a tougher challenge. It's a shame but, in the run up to the group phase both Zwickey & Zoowraa were very active and it looked like your's might be one of the more interesting groups. C'est la vie.

By the way I've heard from Zoowraa letting me know why he stepped out of the Challenge and explaning that he had enjoyed it.
