Week 10 Results

CRYSTAL PALACE 2 CHELSEA 1

Palace score their first goals, and get their first points of the season with this shock win. Fortune favours the brave, so well done to Pinault_Noir for being the only one to get this spot-on, and just jonestones had the outcome. The other 22 predicted a win for Chelsea, with 8 going for a 3-0.

MANCHESTER CITY 7 STOKE 2
Man City scored seven goals in a Premier League game for only the second time. Not surprisingly nobody had this good thing spot-on, but 23 did get the outcome.

WATFORD 2 ARSENAL 1
Watford came from behind to grab a 92nd minute winner. That was good news for the 3 who got this spot-on, and only 1 had the outcome. There were 16 who predicted a victory for Arsenal, with 8 going for a 2-1.

LEEDS 0 READING 1
Leeds miss an injury time penalty, as they lose at home for the first time this season. Another shock result, with all 24 members predicting a win for Leeds.

SHEFFIELD UNITED 1 IPSWICH 0
Ipswich manager McCarthy is now without an away win in October in his past 18 matches, a run stretching back to 2008. There were 2 who got this spot-on, and a further 15 had the outcome.

CHARLTON 1 DONCASTER 0
Ex U's loanee Fosu-Henry scored his fifth goal in three matches to win it for Charlton. There were 4 who had this spot-on, and another 12 got the outcome.

ROTHERHAM 2 SCUNTHORPE 0
Rotherham score in each half, to make it three wins in a row. There were 5 who got 3 points for this, and 9 more had the outcome.

COLCHESTER 0 CARLISLE 1
Carlisle score with the only shot on target, to beat the lacklustre U's. Well done to sevebalo for being the only one to have this spot-on, and another 3 got the outcome. There were 19 who predicted a win for the U's, with 9 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

LINCOLN 0 CAMBRIDGE UNITED 0
A bore draw in a game of few chances. Nobody got 3 points for this, but 6 did have the outcome. There were 14 who predicted a victory for Lincoln.

LUTON 7 STEVENAGE 1
Berry scored a hat-trick, as Luton hammered their near neighbours. Obviously nobody had this spot-on, but 19 did get the outcome.

All ten games this week produced a strong favourite, but with only half of them delivering, and two of them scoring seven, this was another tough week for finding those important 3 pointers. So considering this thrillseeker must have been thrilled to have got three spot-on, the wins for Watford, Sheff Utd and Rotherham, and with three other outcomes, he this weeks top scorer with a magnificent 12 points. Just missing out out on this honour was sevebalo, who came right back to form by having the win for Sheff Utd to go with his Carlisle win spot-on, and five outcomes, to give him a brilliant 11 points. Perhaps jonestones has found a secret to success, with his predictions this week being the equivalent of a lucky dip on the lottery. They gave him an excellent 10 points, helped by getting 3 points for the Watford and Rotherham wins. Two other members had two spot-on, they were Daniel, thanks to the wins for Watford and Charlton, to give him a terrific 9 points, and Pinault_Noir, who had the Charlton win to go with his great Palace pick, on his way to a very good 7 points.

With the draw for the first round of the FA Cup taking place on Monday, that means it is time for the Happy Cup to be taking shape. The draw for the four groups will be drawn tomorrow, and details of this and how the competition will pan out, will follow on a separate thread.

in the Premier, it is still by virtue of the more 3 pointer rule that gsy163 is leading noah4x4, as they both get a decent 7 points. The big changes in this division come from the weeks high scorers, with that top scoring effort from thrillseeker moving up three places, and into the final Charity Shield spot. Further down the line he has given a big boost to his chance of making the Champions League. As for jonestones, his seasons best score takes him out of the bottom three for the first time this season. The great week for sevebalo wasn't enough for him to follow suit, but he moved to within a point of safety. Those missed weeks have caught up with Gate16, and he drops into the relegation zone for the first time this season.

In Division One we have a new leader, with Daniel being rewarded for the outstanding season he has had so far. Yet another decent effort this week takes him to the summit. By getting the Rotherham 2-0 spot-on, both gerry_us and concordman, stay well in contention for the other automatic spot. As for the rest of this league, it is as you were last week, with the only change being Pinault_Noir moving up a place.

THE TABLES (72 out 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Week 9 Results

DONCASTER 4 SOUTHEND 1

Doncaster come from behind to record their first home win in the league this season, as they thrash a Southend side who have a player sent off after the final whistle. Nobody got this spot-on, but 8 did have the outcome. There were 10 who predicted a win for Southend, and incredibly they all went for a 2-1, in what was the joint most predicted result this wee

MK DONS 1 BRADFORD CITY 4
A convincing win for Bradford who remain unbeaten away, against a MK Dons team who had to play for 85 minutes with 10 men. Again no 3 pointer for anybody here, though 11 did get the outcome.

SCUNTHORPE 1 WIGAN 2
Wigan are another side to have a player sent off, but it didn't stop them from winning. There were 5 who got this spot-on, with a further 9 having the outcome.

ACCRINGTON 0 LUTON 2
Luton replace Accrington in the automatic places with this win. Well done to gsy163 for being the only one to get this spot-on, and 6 had the outcome. There were 14 who predicted a win for Accrington, with 10 going for a 2-1, in what was the other most predicted result this week.

CAMBRIDGE UNITED 1 WYCOMBE 3
Wycombe win for the fourth successive game, and take their unbeaten away run to twelve, as they beat 10-man Cambridge. Nobody got this spot-on, but 6 did have the outcome.

MORECAMBE 0 CRAWLEY 1
A narrow win for Crawley against yet another team to have player sent off. Well done to thrillseeker for being the only one to have this spot-on, and just 2 got the outcome.

These were the toughest fixtures of the season so far to predict, with no "easy" games. Though if I had gone with the Notts County v Forest Green fixture, that drawn game would have been hard to predict. So we end up with five away wins, with only 10-man Wigan's 2-1 win giving much hope of finding a 3 pointer this week. The total of seven 3 pointers were shared with seven members getting one each. This lead to us having a five-way tie when it came to finding the weeks top scorer. Those five were Gate16, basher2010 and eagledares, who benefited from having the Wigan 2-1 spot-on, together with the above mentioned gsy163 and thrillseeker, who all got a very useful 5 points, in what was a low scoring week.

In the Premier, that useful week for gsy163 was enough to take him up three places, and to become the fourth different leader in this division in the the last four weeks. Though it is only by the the most 3 pointer rule that he edges out last weeks leader noah4x4. A blank week for RSCOSWORTH drops him three places, but still well in contention. A good week for thrillseeker has him in sight of the congestion at the top. I have not heard anything for a number of weeks from Colukev, so I sadly have to apply the four missed weeks in a row rule, and expel him from all Happy League competitions. It is a rule that when it has been applied in the past the member didn't want to carry on anyhow, but in this case I am not so sure. But with the Happy Cup due to start soon, I had no option, as the groups for that competition are due to be sorted shortly. That means with Colukev gone, there are now only two other relegation places to be decided. By getting the Wigan 2-1 spot-on sevebalo enhanced his chances of not being one of those two.

In Division One, just two outcomes for gerry_us, but it was enough to keep him top. Though only by a point from Daniel, who continued his good season by moving into the other automatic spot. The other member to benefit from having the Wigan 2-1 spot-on was durham_exile, and he cements his play-off spot with that. A very welcome 3 pointer (only his second one this season) for eagledares, moves him within a point of the play-offs, thanks to his artillery of outcomes. The useful week for basher2010 also puts him into play-off contention.

THE TABLES (62 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Week 8 Results

MANCHESTER UNITED 4 CRYSTAL PALACE 0

Such a predictable result, as Palace continue their quest to break all the records for no points or goals at the beginning of a season. One of the weeks big bankers, that had 4 getting it spot-on, and a further 18 having the outcome.

CHELSEA 0 MANCHESTER CITY 1
A narrow win for City, that was more convincing than the scoreline suggests. Nobody had this spot-on, and just 3 got the outcome.

MILLWALL 1 BARNSLEY 3
A shock result, with Barnsley getting their first away win of the season. This was such a banker that nobody got any points from this game. Their were 21 who predicted a win for Millwall, with 11 going for a 2-0, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

ROTHERHAM 1 NORTHAMPTON 0
Rotherham have scored more goals at home than any other team in all four divisions, but only one was required to win this game. Another of the weeks bankers, with 5 having it spot-on, and another 16 getting the outcome.

CHESTERFIELD 0 CHELTENHAM 2
Cheltenham record their first away victory since February. Another game with no 3 pointers, but 5 did get the outcome. There were 12 who predicted a win for Jack Lester in his first game as Chesterfield manager.

SWINDON 2 CAMBRIDGE UNITED 0
First clean sheet at home this season for Swindon. There were 3 who had this spot-on, and a further 12 got the outcome.

This was a week that looked good for the home teams. But it didn't work out that way, with three fixtures ending in a win for the visitors. There were only 12 predictions for an away win over the six games, with none yielding 3 points. So it was left to three teams who did manage to win at home, to provide us with the weeks twelve 3 pointers, and all but 8 of the weeks total points. A tremendous effort then from Sector4 to get those wins for Man Utd, Rotherham and Swindon spot-on, to give him an excellent 9 points, and the honour of being the weeks top scorer. One other performance of merit came from Daniel, who was the only one to get two 3 pointers, the wins for Rotherham and Swindon, on his way to a very good 7 points.

In the Premier, the lead changes hands again, with another solid work from noah4x4 moving him up four places to reach the summit. After his past struggles in the top league, he is finally showing the form that won him the Division one title three times. Early season leader mfb_cufc drops another two places, but with still only two points separating the top five, this has the potential to be the most exciting title race for years. The other big mover in this division was Sector4, whose top scoring effort took him three places, and has him eyeing up the Charity Shield spots now, after being more concerned about relegation a week ago. Talking of being concerned, I am, after missing weeks again from Gate16 and Colukev. I know there are far more important things in life than the Happy League, so I hope all is well with them.

In Division One, with the top two both getting three outcomes, there is no change there.
Though this is the first week this season that concordman has failed to get a 3 pointer. Another decent week for Daniel, takes him to within a point of an automatic spot. The revival from TheHappyGooner continues, and they move up another two places, and back into the play-off places. Another four outcomes for eagledares, and he continues to have more of them than anybody, it is now five weeks without a 3 pointer for him though, but he edges closer to the play-offs without them. Also eyeing up the play-offs is wessex_exile, who is gradually getting into his stride, after a slow start to the season.

THE TABLES (56 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Week 7 Results

LEICESTER 2 LIVERPOOL 3

Liverpool get a first win in four, helped by a Vardy missed penalty. Well done to medicine_man for being the only one to get this spot-on, and there were 13 who had the outcome, with 8 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

FULHAM 1 MIDDLESBROUGH 1
Both goals came in the last four minutes, as the Middlesbrough equaliser takes their unbeaten run to five. There were 4 who had this spot-on, with nobody getting the outcome.

READING 1 HULL 1
A late equaliser denies Hull their first away win of the season. That is good news for the 3 who got this spot-on, and 2 more had the outcome.

SUNDERLAND 1 CARDIFF 2
Sunderland have now gone 15 home games in the league without a win. Just the 2 had this spot-on, and there were 11 who got the outcome.

BRISTOL ROVERS 3 BLACKPOOL 1
Another game decided by late goals, with two of them winning it for Rovers. Well done to Daniel for being the only one to get 3 points for this, and 8 more had the outcome.

PETERBOROUGH 3 WIGAN 2
Yet another game having late goals, three in fact, with Peterborough getting a 90th minute winner, to give them their 1,000th League win. Nobody had this spot-on, but 8 did get the outcome.

SCUNTHORPE 2 PORTSMOUTH 0
Two first-half goals earn Scunthorpe a comfortable win. There were 3 who got this spot-on, with a further 11 having the outcome.

SHREWSBURY 1 BLACKBURN 1
On a week for late goals, Blackburn are another team to get an equaliser with the aid of one, as Shrewsbury maintain their unbeaten start to the season. There were 4 who benefited from this by having it spot-on, and 2 more got the outcome.

COLCHESTER 1 WYCOMBE 2
The U's 10 game unbeaten home league run comes to an end, as Wycombe take their unbeaten away league run to 11. Well done to burnsieespana for being the only one to get this spot-on, and only noah4x4 had the outcome.

COVENTRY 2 EXETER 0
Exeter's unbeaten start to the season comes to an end. Nobody had this spot-on, but 8 did get the outcome.

Late goals were the order of the day on this weeks games, with 10 of them coming from the 84th minute onwards, to put a different complexion on the results. After their recent struggles TheHappyGooner said "this week we aim to top score - just watch". Well they were proved to be right, and indeed they did top score, thanks to getting the Scunthorpe 2-0 and Shrewsbury 1-1 spot-on, and three other outcomes, to get an excellent 9 points. Another member to benefit from having those same two results spot-on was thrillseeker, on his way to a very good 7 points. The same number of points were obtained by RSCOSWORTH, helped by getting 3 points for the Reading 1-1 and Cardiff 2-1. One other member had two spot-on this week, that was gerry_us, and they were the Fulham 1-1 and Scunthorpe 2-0, to give him a decent 8 points. That was also the same number of points accrued by burnsieespana, who was the highest point scorer of those who had one spot-on.

In the Premier, we have a new leader, with RSCOSWORTH being rewarded for having more 3 pointers than anybody in this division. Up into second is burnsieespana, who continued his relentless climb up the table, by moving up another three places. He takes that position by virtue of more 3 pointers than mfb_cufc, who relinquishes the top spot he his held since Week 1. But with now only 2 points separating the top five, this league is really hotting up. A good week for thrillseeker, keeps the top five in his sights. Further down the table, congratulations to jonestones for finally getting a 3 pointer.

In Division One, we also have a new leader here as well. With another decent week for gerry_us finally taking him to the summit. He may of lost top spot, but by having the Cardiff 2-1 spot-on concordman still has more 3 pointers than anybody in this league, but has to settle for the other automatic place now. The top scoring week for TheHappyGooner only took them up one place, but they have the play-offs back in sight now. A good week for wessex_exile puts him into play-off contention as well. Another six outcomes for eagledares, and nobody has more of them than him, but a lack of 3 pointers is holding him back. After leading this division for much of last season, basher2010 has failed to scale those heights this time around, and he drops four places this week.

THE TABLES (50 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Week 6 Results

NEWCASTLE 2 STOKE 1

Newcasatle have won three of their opening five Premier League games, for the first time since 2000-01. There was a big 7 who got this spot-on, and 7 also had the outcome.

IPSWICH 2 BOLTON 0
Bolton are still without a win in the league, after this latest defeat. The late Ipswich second goal was good news for the massive 8 who had this spot-on, in what was the weeks most predicted result, and a further 11 got the outcome.

PORTSMOUTH 4 FLEETWOOD 1
Portsmouth thrash a Fleetwood side that ended with 10 men. Nobody got this spot-on, but a big 18 did have the outcome. This is the fourth 4-1 we have had this season so far, with only five 1-0's beating it as the result we have had most of.

CARLISLE 1 BARNET 1
A late equaliser for Carlisle, but it is now five league games without a win for them. Incredibly this is the second week running the popular 1-1 has failed to have any 3 pointers, and just 2 got the outcome. There were 15 who predicted an end to Carlisle's winless run.

CRAWLEY 0 NOTTS COUNTY 1
County recorded their fourth successive victory with this narrow win. Well done to gsy163 for being the only one to get this spot-on, and another 11 had the outcome.

PORT VALE 1 FOREST GREEN 1
After six defeats in a row, and no goals in the last five games, Port Vale have to settle for a point after taking the lead. At least Forest Green got their first away point of the season, which is more than you can say about another certain team in League 2. There were 2 who had this spot-on, and nobody got the outcome. There were 19 who predicted a win for Port Vale.

That is more like it, as we have our best six game week of the season so far. It could have been an even better week, but the 1-1 has not been a popular prediction, like in previous seasons. It was a bit of a hit or miss week though, as fifteen of the weeks eighteen 3 pointers came from the wins for Newcastle and Ipswich. By having both of those wins spot-on, and getting 3 points for the Port Vale 1-1, and one other outcome, durham_exile comes back to form in a big way, and is this weeks top scorer, with an excellent 10 points. There were two others to benefit by getting those wins for Newcastle and Ipswich spot-on, they were concordman, on his way to a very good 8 points, and burnsieespana, to give him a decent 7 points. A special mention for gerry_us, as he is the first person, for what I think is a number of years, to get all six outcomes correct, with just the Port Vale 1-1 spot-on, but still a very good 8 points for his efforts.

In the Premier, not such a good week for mfb_cufc, and he has his lead reduced to just a single point, as the pack take advantage. It still early days, but with just 3 points separating the top five, this has the makings of an exiting season ahead for the title. At the bottom, still no 3 pointers for jonestones this season, but he moves off the bottom, as he takes advantage of the unfortunate Colukev, who continues to have problems with his internet connection.

In Division One, another decent week for concordman, enables him claim the top spot outright. After his unique week, the revitalised gerry_us reclaims the other automatic spot, he last held after Week 2. The big mover in this league is durham_exile, with his top scoring week taking him up four places, and right into the play-off mix. After a promising start to the season, the TheHappyGooner amalgamation continues to struggle, and they drop out of the play-off spots for the first time.

Essex almost there.
at 15:48 14 Sep 2017

Essex have just beaten Warwarkshire by an innings, so they only require a maximum of eight points from the last two games to be assured of winning the title. If Lancashire fail to beat Somerset, and that looks very unlikely, then they will be Champions tomorrow.

I heard it said that Essex winning the title is being compared to Leicester winning the Premier League. I don't think it is such big surprise, but at the beginning of the season I am sure their realistic aim would have been just to avoid being relegated.

Week 5 Results

EVERTON 0 TOTTENHAM 3

Kane gets his 100th goal for Spurs, in his sides ruthless win. Nobody got this spot-on, but 10 did have the outcome.

LEICESTER 1 CHELSEA 2
Prior to this match Chelsea had not won an away league game in September in any of the last four seasons. There were 4 who had this spot-on, and a further 13 got the outcome.

FULHAM 1 CARDIFF 1
Cardiff lose their 100% record, but will be pleased to have come from behind to get a point. Incredibly nobody got 3 points for this result, and just eagledares had the outcome.

PETERBOROUGH 1 BRADFORD CITY 3
Peterborough lose for the first time this season, as both sides ended the game with 10 men. Another result with nobody having it spot-on, and only basher2010 and medicine_man got the outcome. There were 17 who predicted a win for Peterborough, with 10 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

SHREWSBURY 1 WIGAN 0
Shrewsbury celebrate their 3,000th Football League match, by going top of League One. Well done to noah4x4 for being the only one to get this spot-on, and another 6 had the outcome.

LUTON 0 SWINDON 3
Swindon bounced back to winning ways with this stunning victory against 10-man Luton. No surprise to find this result didn't have any 3 pointers, and just sevebalo got the outcome. There were 20 who predicted a win for Luton.

After results like this you realise why the bookmakers like to promote correct score bets. A really tough week, and it was only the Chelsea 2-1 that saved it from being a complete disaster, with 25 of the weeks 48 total points coming from this game. The weeks five 3 pointers were shared out, with five members getting one each. With noah4x4 being the only one to get two other outcomes with his, he is the weeks top scorer with a healthy 5 points.

In the Premier, by having the Chelsea 2-1 spot-on, mfb_cufc extends his lead to 4 points. By also getting 3 points for that result, RSCOSWORTH reclaims second place, but only by virtue of the most 3 pointers rule, from noah4x4, whose top scoring week still moved him up two places. Another to benefit from the Chelsea 2-1 was burnsieespana, and last seasons runner-up moves up another two places, and back into the top half for the first time since Week 1.

In Division One, we have a new leader. By getting the Chelsea 2-1 spot-on, and being the only one to have a 3 pointer in this league this week, concordman takes over at the top, but only by the first to post rule from BFG, who had lead since Week 1. It was after the Lord Mayor's Show for Pinault_Noir, who fires a blank, after his excellent top scoring effort last week. Further down the league eagledares is gradually finding his feet, and his four outcomes moves him up another two places.

Week 4 Results

BLACKPOOL 1 AFC WIMBLEDON 0

One goal was enough to earn Blackpool a seventh successive home league win, against 10-man Wimbledon. One of the weeks big bankers, with 4 getting it spot-on, and a further 19 having the outcome.

DONCASTER 0 PETERBOROUGH 0
This bore draw brings an end to Peterborough's 100% start to the season. Nobody got this spot-on, but 5 did have the outcome.

GILLINGHAM 1 SHREWSBURY 2
Shrewsbury continued their unbeaten start to the season, as they beat a Gillingham team still waiting for their first win. There were 5 who had this spot-on, and another 6 got the outcome.

OLDHAM 3 CHARLTON 4
Ex-U's loanee Fosu scores Charltons second, as they edge out 10-man Oldham, who make it five straight defeats this season. Another of the weeks big bankers, that nobody got a 3 pointer for, but 24 did have the outcome, with 10 going for a 2-0, in what was equally the weeks most predicted result.

WALSALL 2 PLYMOUTH 1
Walsall take their unbeaten run to four, with this win. The last of the weeks bankers has a massive 10 having this spot-on, in what was the weeks other most predicted result, and 13 more got the outcome.

CAMBRIDGE UNITED 1 COLCHESTER 0
A single goal was enough for the U's to carry on with their pathetic away record. Nobody got this spot-on, and just 3 had the outcome.

CHESTERFIELD 0 COVENTRY 0
10-man Chesterfield hang on to earn a point in another bore draw. Yet another game with no 3 pointers, and again just 3 got the outcome.

CRAWLEY 2 YEOVIL 0
Crawley get back-to-back victories for the first time in nearly seven months. There were 3 who got this spot-on, and a further 8 had the outcome.

LINCOLN 0 LUTON 0
Apparently an entertaining game, but it is the third goaless game for us this week, and another with no 3 pointers, with 5 getting the outcome.

PORT VALE 0 NOTTS COUNTY 1
County win it with the only shot on target from either team. There were 2 who got this spot-on, and another 10 had the outcome.

Our first big 10 game week of the season, but with the three bore draws, and the Cambridge 1-0, only earning a handful of points, it was left to the other 6 games to count. With the weeks three big bankers all winning, those games counted in a big way, to give most members a reasonable week. Somebody who had more than a reasonable week was Pinault_Noir, as he was the only one to get three spot-on, the wins for Blackpool, Walsall and Crawley, and with three other outcomes, he is the weeks top scorer with a brilliant 12 points. Other meritorious performances this week came from a back to form Colukev, who had the wins for Shrewsbury and Walsall spot-on, to give him an excellent 10 points, and gsy163, who was the only other one to get two spot-on, the wins for Blackpool and Crawley, on his way to a very good 8 points.

In the Premier, another decent week for mfb_cufc, the best of those with one spot-on, has him topping the table on his own again. The good week for gsy163, moves him up a place, into second. It is all sixers and sevens for the next six positions, so not much change there, though burnsieespana did move up two places. I said last week that Colukev was struggling to find his good Division One form. Well, the struggle is over, and his excellent week takes off the bottom. He is replaced there by jonestones, who is now the only one in either division not to get a 3 pointer. Though going by how many he has had in previous seasons, it is only a matter of time before he gets one.

In Division One, by getting the Crawley 2-0 spot-on, BFG maintains his hold on top spot, though by one point less, as Daniel continues his good start to the season, with another solid week. The big mover in this league is Pinault_Noir, with his top scoring week taking him up four places into third. Consistency is the key for concordman and gerry_us, and they cement their play-off spots. Using the long ball tactics didn't work for TheHappyGooner, but they still remain in the final play-off spot. At the bottom durham_exile shows his first form of the season, with a decent 8 points, and that same points total takes medicine_man off the bottom, as he seems to have found a prescription for success.

THE TABLES (28 out 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)
