Happy League 2019/20 Week 1 (of 38) - Deadline Saturday 10th August 15.00 22:42 - Jul 1 with 1656 viewsmfb_cufc

A warm welcome to all members old and new, as the Happy League is about to start its 17th season.

There is no need to register for the coming season, as any member who took part last season, will automatically be registered for this season. Just post your predictions to confirm your registration.

If anybody is wanting to drop out, could you please let me know, either on this thread, or by sending me a PM. For any new members thinking about joining, it is a free to enter competition with prizes. You can join just by posting you predictions for Week 1 on this thread. The four competitions are:-

The Happy League There are two divisions, with twelve members in the Premier, and all other members (including newcomers) in Division One. Three to be relegated from the Premier, and three to be promoted from Division One (the top two automatically, and one from the play-offs).
The season will start on August 10th, and will run for 38 weeks (280 games). Fixtures will be the usual Pick 6, with a guest Pick 10 every three weeks (the first one to be Week 4). There will also be a Pick 10 on Week 38, to finish the season, selected by myself. After last seasons promotion and relegation the two leagues as they stand at the moment are (In alphabetical order):-




The Happy Cup This will start as a league format, with four groups playing 30 games. These will be ten fixtures from each of the FA Cup 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds. The top two from each group will qualify for the quarter-finals, where it will become a knockout tournament. There will be more details on this competition in a separate thread later.

The Champions League The qualification for this competition will be decided on December 29th (Week 21). With BFG qualifying automatically, as last seasons winner, the other eleven qualifiers will be the highest point scorers over the two divisions on the aforementioned date. The competition will start on February 18th, when the Champions League knockout stage begins. Again there will be more details on this competition on a separate thread at a later date, to be administrated by wessex_exile.

Charity Shield This is an end of season competition for the top three in the Premier, and the Happy Cup winner. If the Happy Cup winner finishes in the top three of the Premier, then the Happy Cup runner-up will qualify.

A reminder of a rule, mainly for any newcomers. That is anybody failing to post their predictions four weeks in a row, will be dismissed from all Happy League competitions. There is no need for this to happen. If you are not going to be around to post your predictions any week, just let me know in advance what default score you require, e.g. all 1-0's, 2-1's etc. Anybody failing to post anything at all will receive no points for that week.

Week 1 Fixtures - Deadline Saturday 10th August 15.00 A traditional start to the season with six games involving East Anglia teams.

CARDIFF CITY v LUTON TOWN
IPSWICH TOWN v SUNDERLAND
OXFORD UNITED v PETERBOROUGH UNITED
SOUTHEND UNITED v BLACKPOOL
CAMBRIDGE UNITED v NEWPORT COUNTY
PLYMOUTH ARGYLE v COLCHESTER UNITED

Good luck everybody.

But you can see it right? I'd love to find a fan who doesn't currently have this expectation deep down!

We never fare well on early season long away trips coupled with the absolute joke of the transfer activity thus far, it's the only possible outcome!

Plenty of time to change my prediction but I predict a long hard season ahead. The calibre of players we have let go , compared to what we have brought in is belief!

Not too sure of the comings and goings down in Plymouth however, we have only really lost two class players in Kent and Smoz and replaced them with Sowumni and Gambin.

Yes, we need a new goalkeeper but whoever we bring in can't be no worse than Gilmartin.

So team should be similar to last season and so we will start fast, suffer the normal mid-season, post Christmas dip and then recover too late for the play-offs!

So I will be predicting a win for Col U for this game, especially as it is not north of the Watford Gap!

Maybe I am the one going mad?!?!?

So little form to base any predictions on so.....MFB
Using your philosophy of never predicting draws thought I would rebel. Only one that gave me problems was the U's fixture and as we don't have any strikers of note went scoreless instead.
Best of luck to everyone this season and a big welcome to our new members.

Interesting thoughts Gerry. I am sure the negative McGreal would be quite happy with a 0-0. It will be interesting to see if there are more 0-0 predictions this season after it was the equal second most result last season with 27, the same amount as the 1-0.

As a reminder here are the top ten results from the 2018/19 season:-

1-1...42
0-0...27
1-0...27
2-0...22
2-1...21
0-1...21
1-2...20
0-2...14
3-0...14
2-2...13
