Week 1 Results
CRYSTAL PALACE 0 HUDDERSFIELD 3
Huddersfield make a dream start, playing in the top flight for the first time since 1972. Nobody predicted this surprise result spot-on, and just sevebalo and Pinault_Noir got the outcome. There were 16 who predicted a win for Palace.
WEST BROM 1 BOURNEMOUTH 0
A Hegazi goal on his Premier League debut, wins it for West Brom. There were 4 who got this spot-on, and a further 9 had the outcome.
HULL 4 BURTON 1
Hernandez scores a hat-trick, as Hull thrash 10-man Burton. Well done to Pinualt_Noir for being the only one to have this spot-on, but 22 did get the outcome, in what was the weeks biggest banker.
BLACKBURN 1 DONCASTER 3
Doncaster have the greater bite in this battle of the Rovers. Nobody got 3 points for this shock result, and just BFG was brave enough to have the outcome. There were 19 who predicted a win for Blackburn, with 11 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks most predicted result.
GRIMSBY 0 COVENTRY 2
Coventry are the only team in League 2 with a 100% record, after this win against a Grimsby team that ended with 10 men. Just basher2010 and TheHappyGooner had this spot-on, and there were 9 who got the outcome.
MANSFIELD 2 FOREST GREEN 0
Two second-half goals win it for Mansfield, as Forest Green lose their first Football League match. There were 5 who got this spot-on, with another 8 having the outcome.
With all twelve Premier League members registering for this season, I can now confirm there will be three relegated from this division, with three going up from Division One (two automatically, and one through the play-offs). With ethicsgirl and OhOriOri not posting their predictions, Division One also has twelve members at the moment. Though both are still welcome to register by posting their predictions for Week 2.
I thought I would start the season with some"easy looking" fixtures, to give everybody a chance to put some points on the board. Well, everybody did manage to get off the mark for the season, but the defeats for Crystal Palace and Blackburn reduced the chances of getting a decent score. In the end we had twelve 3 pointers, and only mfb_cufc managed to get two, the West Brom 1-0, and the Mansfield 2-0, and with two other outcomes, he is the seasons first top scorer, with a useful 8 points. Of the ten who had one spot-on, the best were RSCOSWORTH, BFG and Daniel who all got a very good 6 points.
THE TABLES (6 out of 280 played)
Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post.
