Title: Prediction League - Boston United vs Spennymoor Town
Post by: Ken Fox on August 08, 2021, 03:22:24 PM
The votes have been counted and the clear winner for the prediction method was option A - Scores and Attendances - the original.

For those who haven't played before, it has been all about predicting the results and attendances of Boston United's competitive first team games throughout the season. As the season goes on you accumulate points and the winner is the person with the most points at the end of the season.

It's just a bit of fun! There's no entry fee, but there is a prize apart from the honour of being the winner as Oxo has said he will provide one.

All predictions must be made before kick off - although I'm open to bribes of a pint of Batemans XXXB or Dark Lord to accept predictions that are a few minutes late.  ;D

You get 3 points for the correct score or 1 point for the correct result.

For attendance predictions it is 10 points if you get the attendance spot on or 3 points if within 5% or 1 point if within 10%.

Soon after each game I usually managed to process the scores and update the points table and post it on Patter.

You are allowed to edit your prediction right up until kickoff time.

In Cup games with extra time or penalties it's the score at the end of normal time that counts.

If a game is postponed or abandoned then all predictions for that match are null and void.

Just post your predictions in the thread on here for each match.

Here's my prediction for the opening league game of the season based on what My Computer (http://www.bufc.drfox.org.uk/next.html) predicted for this game last season. I reckon it could be a bumper attendance considering it's the first league match at the new stadium where fans are allowed in.

Boston United 3-1 Spennymoor Town (1800)

The attendance figure has been modified by the club so it's changed from 1812 to 1852. So I've updated the points. dt woodhall now goes top with 10 points as he got the attendance spot on.
