We have our game at Cheltenham on Tuesday 13th Oct (re-arranged). I would like to post a prediction of a Grimsby win please. Oh, go on, give us a Joker too!

COMPLETED PREDICTA NO.5...
View attachment 13220
I know it has been mentioned a few times in the past but I still feel that actual points should take precedent over %.
A good example this week is that Black Haddock is placed third in table although he has 3 points more than 2nd placed team.
It is no fault that Grimsby have had some games cancelled [Covid] but Black Haddock should not be penalised because of that.
Here is my table without %

hi stroudey...thanks for showing an interest...
In my mind this game is about who knows their team best...who has knowledge of their opponents as well as their own team...making a predicta based on current circumstances,history,location,squad availability etc...
Therefore if someone gets 2 correct predictas out of 5 games it shows a better skill than getting 1 correct out of 3 attempts...deserving a higher place in a fellow group of players...
The points are there to show the equivalent of goal difference to help league places..
I think a wise man (you) once suggested people should Use their head more than their hearts before predicting...then the gaps between top and bottom causing despondency would be less...
It is game that needs skill not luck...
That’s a criteria always based on numbers and percentages...
Cheers buddy for your part in our game

Oakey old boy, it's happening again and I'm having trouble coming on here; and that is the reason I didn't bother with the prediction league this year. And it's not only me either. So it's not that I forget to predict or just don't want to play any more. Quitting is not my style ;)

Anyway while I'm here give us a Cambridge WIN plus Joker please. Ta.

After watching us score three at Cheltenham this evening (my prediction of a win with a JOKER coming to fruition), I would like to propose that Grimsby Town FC will beat The Orient this coming Saturday, please also put a JOKER on my prediction.

Thank You.

Got to be a Joker on that
We haven't won a home league game since 29th December last year (nicked a late 1-0 v Macc). Even before that we only won 1 more going back to October. That's literally 2 home wins in a calendar year.

Only win we've had at our ground in any comp in 2020 inc friendlies was v West Brom kids the other week. We're never a banker at home.

Thanks Oakie,
Chris must be pleased that you put table in % order as he is a couple of places above me but I would be above him on points.
I did get utter gitters at 2.20 when told that FGR were missing four 1st teamers. One injured , one with Coronavirus and the others in isolation. So therefore pleased that FGR won and I had placed my Joker on result.
Not with you stroudie??
Chris is above you cause he has more points AND a higher correct total...

Both myself and my team seem to be on a roll at the moment, so could you please put Tuesdays prediction as a win for GTFC and plaice (sic) a Joker on the result.

Thank you.

Our fringe players drew 2-2 in the Boycott Trophy against their (almost) full side earlier this season. I think our proper starting eleven will be too strong for them; but you never know, it's football.

Seems I've got Black Haddock rattled, blokes trying to psyche out the wrong person.

This is my title to win fish, I've come close often enough down the years you aint stopping me this time. :box:
