Happy League 2017/18 Week 1 (of 38) - Deadline Saturday August 12th 15.00 22:32 - Jul 15 with 1356 viewsmfb_cufc

A warm welcome to all members old and new, as the Happy League is about to start its 15th 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 12th, 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. With gerry_us making a welcome return, the two leagues as they stand at the moment are:-


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 30th (Week 21). With mfb_cufc 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 13th, 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 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 August 12th

CRYSTAL PALACE v HUDDERSFIELD TOWN
WEST BROMICH ALBION v AFC BOURNEMOUTH
HULL CITY v BURTON ALBION
BLACKBURN ROVERS v DONCASTER ROVERS
GRIMSBY TOWN v COVENTRY CITY
MANSFIELD TOWN v FOREST GREEN ROVERS

Good luck everybody.

Here we go, I see I have got to drag myself out of relegation zone from Day One! Alphabetically, I would be mid-table. Are psychological mind games being played already?

Colchester born and bred (Philip Morant 1976-1982 ). Pharmacist by profession. Now a Yorkshire exile who has relied on this Board to inform me as to what's going on for many years now but until now not raised my head above the parapet as it were. As for tactics, I think I'll stick at just trying to remember to post my predictions. Not very ambitious but probably realistic. Good luck everyone.

Welcome, medicine_man. We are always pleased to have new members. It is a good point you make about making sure you post your predictions every week. Missed weeks had a big bearing on last seasons competition.

Great to see new people coming on board.
Like several I watched for a few years without either entering or even understanding the fun of it until I took the plunge two years ago. So anybody else out there come and join us.

Just two weeks now to the big kick-off, and nine members have already posted their predictions. With one new member, two returning, and a first ever amalgamation, we have a Division One containing fourteen at the moment. Still room for more if any other new members are interested. This is how the leagues are looking now, in alphabetical order, if you feel offended by being bottom.
