SussexWelsh | 5390 comments Roll up, punters! Roll-up!

This season's shenanigans get underway at 12:30 on Saturday 12th September.

Be aware that there are only 8 games taking place though, as the two below have been postponed:

Burnley v Manchester United
Manchester City v Aston Villa

A useful tool to aid you in making your predictions can be found here:

TheFoe | 2081 comments Nice one Sussex, got to be better than the erratic Sports Predictor!


message 3: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6621 comments kicking off as reigning champion,

1 - chelsea +2 - DP
2 - arsenal +1
3 - everton +1
4 - c/palace +1
5 - liverpool +1
6 - west ham -

18 - leeds utd -1
19 - tottenham -1
20 - brighton -2

in these early days, will the table be based on the predictor or the official epl version, as, if i remember, there's some kind of format descrepency re. alphabetisation?

btw, did i mention i was reigning champion?

good! eat it up, suckahs!


message 4: by SussexWelsh (last edited Sep 01, 2020 10:23PM) (new)

SussexWelsh | 5390 comments It will be the official SussexWelsh table, Tech ..... also known as the EPL version. As you say, alphabetical order should be used for teams with the same goal difference and goals scored.

Did I mention that last season has now been ruled null and void?


message 5: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6621 comments nah, nah, andy robertson* and i cleaned up as scots at the top of the epl!

* others players had supporting roles!

Lez | 7490 comments Have I got things right with scores and alphabetisation?


message 13: by SussexWelsh (new)

SussexWelsh | 5390 comments Alphabetical order looks good but I can't see what you predicted for goals scored


message 14: by SussexWelsh (new)

SussexWelsh | 5390 comments For example a team beginning with 'B' that won 4-2, would be above a team beginning with 'A' that won 3-1.


message 15: by Sj (last edited Sep 03, 2020 12:01PM) (new)

Sj Brooke | 2148 comments although the "worldfootball.net/table" isn't putting all the results with the identical result into alphabetical order.
You'll have to do that yourself, I think


message 16: by TheFoe (new)

TheFoe | 2081 comments Then I'm slightly confused. I used the Worldfootball.net site that Sussex posted, and West Brom were placed above Everton in the table even though they are both on -2 points. I figured this was because the West Brom game was at 2pm and the Everton game was at 4.30pm.


message 17: by SussexWelsh (last edited Sep 03, 2020 12:03PM) (new)

SussexWelsh | 5390 comments Correct, Sj. It sorts itself out after 2 games, at most 3, thankfully.


message 18: by Sj (last edited Sep 03, 2020 12:05PM) (new)

Sj Brooke | 2148 comments Yep Foe, I had the same problem with West Brom and had to adjust

Yes Foe I think you're right but that is incorrect (see my earlier post in response to Lez).

Yep Sussex I've noticed previous seasons that it all quickly sorts itself out. :)

Lez | 7490 comments Sorry, I'm being dim. I don't understand what I'm to do with the scores. Can I give this week's a miss till I figure it out?

SussexWelsh | 5390 comments No Lez, your punt is OK :-)

message 36: by theDuke (last edited Sep 12, 2020 12:42PM) (new)

theDuke | 5702 comments Almost forgot. I have read the posts above regarding how to order the teams for the first few rounds..but as I haven't a clue what EPL stands for or what the rules are.....so i've posted what the predictor calculated then reorganised them alphabetically. I hope this is okay...

1 Liverpool 3 (3.0) DP
2 Chelsea 2 (3.1)
3 Leicester 2 (3.1)
4 Arsenal 1 (1.0)
5 Tottenham 1 (1.0)
6 West Ham 1 (1.0)

18 Brighton & Hove -2 (1.3)
19 West Bromwich -2 (1.3)
20 Leeds -3 (0.3)

Does this make sense?


message 37: by SussexWelsh (new)

SussexWelsh | 5390 comments Duke, alphabetical order kicks in for matching scores. So your sequence should be Liverpool, Chelsea Leicester, Arse, Tottenham, West Ham, Brighton, WBA, Leeds


message 38: by theDuke (new)

theDuke | 5702 comments Yip..done nat Sussex..see above! :)

At least it's right.... now.

If Liverpool are playing Leeds then shouldn't bottom place (breaks my heart!) be:

20 Leeds -3 (0.3)


message 40: by TheFoe (new)

TheFoe | 2081 comments Yes it should. Are you a secret Leeds fan then Val?

Val H. | 15117 comments TheFoe wrote: "Yes it should. Are you a secret Leeds fan then Val?"

It's not a secret. I lived there for a year while doing my library training. Went to every game in that stellar season - all the way to Wembley and the Cup Final. What a day! Not so memorable was the day at Wolverhampton when we went down by a goal and the train stopped at Derby on the way home. I've followed their progress for nearly 50 years.

Thanks for pointing that out, now adjusted..not that it makes much difference....i've just seen the scores for that game!

I certainly was! It was great to wake up to the news that it was only an unfortunate penalty that sunk them and that they gave the great 'Pool a run for their money! I hope they can keep it up.
