Samaritans Score Prediction (Bolton a)

edited July 31 in Football

So the season is underway and we are top of the league. Long may it continue.

First of all a huge thankyou to all those who have donated so generously. As I have said it does make a huge difference to the branch. By my reckoning just this season the funds raised from this competition will pay the admin costs (heating, lights, phones, rates etc etc) allowing the branch to answer approximately 200 calls from desperate people - some may be calling from a bridge wondering whether to jump but others may be from an elderly lady living alone now in pain and desperately lonely or a guy speaking for the first time about the sexual abuse they suffered as a child or indeed from the sexual abuser now feeling guilt about what they did or a guy in prison coming to terms with being away from his family or a lady with mental health issues tormented by noise from outside or a veteran wondering how his life has descended to living on the streets or a penniless teenage girl thrown out by her parents now having to pay her slum landlord in sex or a whole range of people needing someone to pour out their hearts to. Your donation has made a direct difference to their lives. Thank you.

Still room of course for more entrants, more donations and more calls answered!!  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/gasroomfundraising

First week and just the one correct answer - take a bow the (rather smug) @Manboobs . The only way from here is down. At the other end I see @bookertease has taken early possession of his customary position in the table. His annual sacrifice predicting defeats most weeks is the direct cause of the clubs success far more some would say than Gareth himself.

Two little admin points - I note champion @SmiroludyBlue has not joined us this year. Anyone know if she is OK? And @drcongo since you upgraded the site, markdown doesn't translate tables so well - is there another site I should use?

On to a tough predicting game at Bolton (a) - anyone knw who will play in goal....?

  • Fake Wanderers 2 True Blue Wanderers 2

  • Bolton 0-2 Wycombe

  • @DevC - how many points do I gain for Wycombe 4 Burton 1 - my post was disguised by me mistakenly putting a blank one after it. I hope to feature in the top half of this table at least once this season.

    For the Bolton game 2 - 2 please.

  • A rip-roaring 1 - 2 win for the blues to both keep us at the top of the league while allowing the goalkeeper debate to go on.

  • Oops sorry @railwaysteve

    have added to you to the list.

  • Bolton will score but the light and dark blue goal machine will score more

    3-1 to top of the table Wycombe

  • I don't seem to be on the list @DevC??

    I'll go Bolton 1-2 Wycombe please

  • Bolton 2-2 Wycombe

  • @DevC - I'm all good thank you and thank you for the concern.

    I've just had a few things on recently and missed your recent post about the competition + as I wasn't able to go on Saturday either, it completely dropped off my radar (sorry). Only realised when catching up on things last night!

    All paid up now and raring to go.

    Bolton 1 - 2 Wycombe please

  • Bolton 1-1 Wycombe

  • Apologies to @bigred87 . Had a bit of a mare setting this up.

    Great news to hear that all is fine @SmiroludyBlue . Thanks for joining. Obviously everyone else may as well not bother now......

    Bolton 2 Wycombe 1

    @DevC hope I'm not too late to the party.

    I was away on Holiday from the 22nd of July to today and didn't have a chance to donate and sign up to the competition.

    Thank you for running it and I'm looking forward to doing this again.

    Bolton 2 Chairboys 1

  • Of course you are not too late, @thedieharder. you are very welcome.

    I rather like the little subplots of you against your dad for example and would welcome more. Perhaps @railwaybeth could join and build on the lionesses success last night by following on from last seasons winner scoring one for the women an d putting her dad firmly in his place or maybe @ReturnToSenda could demonstrate definitively that statistics really are any use in predicting football performance and not the bunkum I suspect they largely are.

  • Bolton 1-1 Wycombe

  • Bolton 2 Wycombe 2

  • Wanderers 1 v 1 Wanderers

  • Bolton 2 - Wycombe 2

  • Bolton 2 Wycombe 2

  • Bolton 3 Wycombe 2

  • nil nil

  • Bolton 1-2 Wycombe

  • Bolton 1 Wycombe 2

  • Bolton 2 - 0 Wycombe

    (will sort donation out tomorrow Dev)
