WHC Celebratory Promotion Awards Dinner

I've pinched myself a few times. I've checked the internet. I've read the texts from friends and family. feck me, I think that might have actually happened.....

Lets just round up the awards for this season and then we can hit the serious drinking.

Correct Score Predictions

Congratulations to @ForeverBlue here. Correct predictions in the last two games saw him just pip @SmiroludyBlue to this prize with a magnificent eight correct score predictions. Outstanding predicting. That coincedentally was precisely eight more correct score predictions than @Wendoverman , @Jonny_King (and two competitors who exited early). Really shit predicting....

The Eric Morecambe Award for predicting all the right scores but not necessarily in the right order.

66pts gained in the season by the club (incl playoffs. Two predictors predicted precisely 66pts. congrats to @peterparrotface and @Jonny_King. @Jonny_King may not be great at score predicting but he gets the right results - but usually for the wrong games. Special mention for @bookertease, predicted eight straight defeats, had a brief burst of optimism for Accy (h) and then reverted to predicting losses for rest of season. he may be a miserable git but he may be a bit of a dark horse for overall title next year.

Lifetime Achievement Award

This award goes to someone who has shown himself to be singularly crap at predicting football matches but without him stepping in when the previous gasroom folded and providing us all this excellent site to pontificate on, this competition couldn't have happened and over a couple of seasons Wycombe Homeless Connection would be around Β£750 worse off. Take a well deserved bow @drcongo

  • But minor prizes to one side, cue drum roll, cue excitement. The big one.

    The season predicting competition.

    And the winner is

    @ForeverBlue

    At the start of the season myself and @railwaysteve were incredibly grateful to Tony Hector for organising the donation of a couple of shirts for our respective competitions. Well with a magnificent late run, he's only gone and won one of them in his gasroom guise of @ForeverBlue. Well done mate.

    special mention to @SmiroludyBlue who lead for so many weeks but was just pipped at the end. Perhaps the only Wycombe fan who wouldn't have been totally gutted had Oxford scored a last minute equaliser! Really good effort all season. Better luck next year.

    But wait, what's this. A last gasp protest to deny @ForeverBlue his prize? Apparently @fredk333 only predicted 27 of the 37 games and is therefore claiming the prize on a PPG basis and threatening to "sue the arse off" us if he doesn't get his way...........

    thanks all for your support. Next season we'll be agonising over that tricky Nottm Forest away prediction. What a season, what a manager, what a team.

  • Thanks for running it @DevC

  • Awesome stuff Dev, thank you so much for organising it. I will happikly acvept the role of shittest predictor for the GREATEST TEAM!

  • I’m sorry @Jonny_King but I think you’ll fine there’s some real stalwarts of the lower reaches of this particular table. I couldn’t even bring myself to post a prediction for this one. I’d have almost certainly gone 2-0 Oxford though.

  • @DevC thank you for running a really great competition. Who’d have thought that in a season that started with so much uncertainty, and no little trauma, the team would have been forcing us to consider predicting so many wins? Silly I know, but can’t seem to stop saying we are Championship!!!

  • Thanks for running it this season @DevC

    Really enjoyed it!

  • Thanks @DevC from one mid-table mediocrity to another.

  • Yes, cheers for the comp @DevC . My general tendency to predict a loss is mainly borne of trying to tempt fate. Maybe it'll get me higher up the table next season, but who knows with this team.

  • Echoing the thanks for all your hard work running this again this season @DevC. I think I started it off properly considering the result but then we kept on not losing it then became something of a superstition (not that I am in ANY way an irrational, superstitious person when it comes to football...) to stick to 0-2 and I am so pleased to have come bottom for doing so.

  • @DevC – thank you from me too for running this competition. I’ve enjoyed my first season taking part and congratulations @ForeverBlue on your successful late run.

    To be honest, I’m not sure how I’d have felt about a late Oxford equaliser. I’d already started pacing around the room and don’t think my heart could have taken another 30 minutes!

    Here's to next season in the Championship!

  • Cheers @DevC, great work. That's a fantastic sum of money for WHC as well.

  • I thanked the Lord for no extra time, I reckon Oxford might run us down. Simon Eastwood is my hero...

  • Thanks Dev, fantastic season all round and well done for raising such a handsome sum for WHC!

  • Thanks @DevC for a good season.

    Haven't read this very closely but looks like I won.
