Season Prediction Competition 2017/18

Postby NorfolkWhite » Wed Jul 26, 2017 10:12 am

Right boys and gals – you’ve seen the movement in the squad this season and are on top of the rumours about possible further movement. Radz has proved to be good to his word and we have Elland Road back where it belongs ownership wise, season tickets are selling well – so we are all confident right!, well it’s time to find out. Quick and easy competition about where we will finish this season. To enter all you need to do is post as a one off your prediction of our:

• Final league position
• How many points we will achieve
• How many wins, losses and draws, 46 games (also be handy if these work out to your points total :lol: )
• Our goal difference
• Goals scored

The winner will be decided by:

• Nearest finish position wins
• If 2 or more either guess the right position or are an equal number of positions apart - nearest points
• If tied again on same points or equal difference from actual - then goal difference
• If still tied nearest number of wins - then draws
• If it's still a tie nearest goals scored.
• If it's still a tie ......... it's a tie

Entries will remain open until KO of the first game of the season.

Let's see who the optimists and pessimists are out there!

Bit of a difference in the thoughts on our attacking and defending capabilities :)

I'm going to have to wait until at least Saturday, should give the best indication of all about Christiansen tactically and how the team will set up, as atm it is just guesswork for me with Christiansen and formation.
Also a keen Barcelona supporter since 2004-2005 (when they were average.)

There seems to be a lot of shifting around at the back of the room - time to come forward and nail your colours to the mast........I include myself in that shifting before anyone comments :lol:
