Happy Cup 2018/19 Group stage Round 2 (of 3) - Fixtures to follow
at 23:42 10 Nov 2018

Round 1 Results

CHESTERFIELD 1 BILLERICAY 1

3 got it spot-on, and 1 had the outcome.

EBBSFLEET 0 CHESTERFIELD 0
Nobody had this spot-on, and 5 got the outcome.

EXETER 2 BLACKPOOL 3
No 3 pointer for anybody, but 11 did have the outcome

GUISLELEY 4 CAMBRIDGE UNITED 3
Not surprisingly no 3 pointer here either, though 3 did get the outcome.

MANSFIELD 1 CHARLTON 1
3 got it spot-on, and 1 had the outcome.

METROPOLITAN POLICE 0 NEWPORT 2
3 had it spot-on, and a further 24 got the outcome.

OXFORD UNITED 0 FOREST GREEN 0
Nobody got this spot-on, but 4 did have the outcome.

PLYMOUTH 1 STEVENAGE 0
7 had this spot-on, and another 17 got the outcome.

SOUTHEND 1 CRAWLEY 1
Well done to Daniel for being the only one to get this spot-on, and nobody had the outcome.

TRANMERE 3 OXFORD CITY 3
No 3 pointer for anybody here, and just Daniel got the outcome.

Shocks in the FA Cup are as predictable as the U's getting knocked out in the 1st Round, and we certainly had plenty in our ten games. Only the wins for Newport and Plymouth made sure everybody got at least a point. The stand out performer was without doubt Daniel, who made a good decision to go 1-1 all games, and was rewarded with a brilliant 12 points.


That brilliant score from Daniel means he has one foot in the quarter-finals already. One spot-on for thrillseeker, the Chesterfield 1-1, and for TheHappyGooner and durham_exile, who both had the Plymouth 1-0, gives them a slight advantage heading into Round 2.


The only one to have two 3 pointers was gerry_us, the Mansfield 1-1 and the Plymouth 1-0, and he is the early leader in this group. As in Group A it is the ones who got a 3 pointer who have the early advantage, with sevebalo and medicine_man both having the Plymouth 1-0, while Blue4U2 got the Mansfield 1-1, and eagledares had the Newport 2-0.


Another to benefit from having the Plymouth 1-0 spot-on was ghughes11, and his good four outcomes means he is the early leader in this group. Just edging out blueeagle who had the Newport 2-0 spot-on. 3 pointers also for burnsieespana, who had the Chesterfield 1-1, and basher2010 who got the Newport 2-0.


Just the one 3 pointer obtained in this group by oxfcolu, who had the Plymouth 1-0, and he is the clear leader. With second place going to BFG on the first to post rule.

The draw for the FA Cup 2nd Round takes place tomorrow, and the fixtures for Group stage Round 2 will follow as soon as the FA Cup 1st Round replays have been played.

Happy League 2018/19 Week 15 (of 38) - Deadline Saturday 17th November 15.00
at 23:13 10 Nov 2018

Week 14 Results

HUDDERSFIELD 1 WEST HAM 1

Huddersfield haven't scored more than once in any of their past 22 Premier League games. Scoring only 9 goals in that period. There were 3 who got this spot-on, with nobody having the outcome. There were 22 who predicted a win for West Ham.

NEWCASTLE 2 BOURNEMOUTH 1
Newcastle have won consecutive Premier League games for the first time since April. There were 3 who had this spot-on, and another 7 got the outcome.

SOUTHAMPTON 1 WATFORD 1
Southampton remain without a home win this season. Only 2 got this spot-on, and 3 more had the outcome. There were 17 who predicted a win for Watford, with 9 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

BOLTON 0 SWANSEA 1
A first away win in six for Swansea condemned Bolton to their fourth consecutive Championship defeat. Just the 2 had this spot-on, with a further 13 getting the outcome.

DERBY 0 ASTON VILLA 3
Villa ended Derby's six-match unbeaten run in the Championship. Nobody got any points from this game. There were 25 who predicted a win for Derby.

QPR 3 BRENTFORD 2
Three goals in eight minutes blew away Brentford as QPR stormed to their fourth win in five matches. Nobody had this spot-on, but 19 did get the outcome.

Another tough week for point scoring where the 1-1 draw has established itself again as the most popular result, with the two this week making it 15 for the season. Only 10 spot-ons in total, but two members did manage to have two each. They were blueeagle and ghughes11 who both had those 1-1 draws, but it is the former with two outcomes who is the weeks top scorer with an excellent 8 points. Certainly a good week for the latter to go 1-1 all games, and they gave him a decent 6 points.

We are now at the two-third stage for Champions League qualification, where BFG will be grateful for qualifying as holder. The other eleven qualifying places are far from being settled. The eleventh qualifying spot in currently being held by TheFatGooner with 62 points, but there are 6 members within 2 points of this total.

In the Premier This was one of the worst ever weeks for point scoring in the Premier, so the three outcomes for sevebalo were useful in this context, and he increases his lead by a point. The only member to get a 3 pointer in this division was mfb_cufc, the Swansea 1-0, and that was enough to move him up two places in what was the only change this week.

In Division One Just when it looked like he maybe headed for the first time this season Colukev produces the goods with a first 3 pointer in four weeks, the Huddersfield 1-1, and a solid 5 points increases his lead also by one point. The Swansea 1-0 gave basher2010 a 3 pointer for the fifth consecutive week, and he remains in the other automatic spot. The top scoring effort from blueeagle moves him up six places into third. The decent week for ghughes11 only moved him up a place, but more importantly within a point of the play-offs.

THE TABLES (100 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)




Week 15 Fixtures Yet another International break week, so it is six games from League's 1 and 2 again.

ACCRINGTON STANLEY v BARNSLEY
BURTON ALBION v COVENTRY CITY
SHREWSBURY TOWN v ROCHDALE
BURY v STEVENAGE
GRIMSBY TOWN v CRAWLEY TOWN
SWINDON TOWN v CARLISLE UNITED

Good luck everybody.

Happy League 2018/19 Week 14 (of 38) - Deadline Saturday 10th November 15.00
at 22:14 3 Nov 2018

Week 13 Results

CARDIFF 0 LEICESTER 1

Leicester are the only side to score in all their Premier League games this season. There were 3 who got this spot-on, and a further 14 had the outcome.

ARSENAL 1 LIVERPOOL 1
Liverpool are unbeaten in their opening 11 matches to a Premier League campaign for the first time since the 2007-08 campaign, as Arsenal's late equaliser takes their unbeaten League run to nine. There were 3 who had this spot-on, with a massive 10 going for a 2-2 getting the outcome.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST 1 SHEFFIELD UNITED 0
Grabban scored the winner as Forest knocked United off the top of the Championship. There were 4 who got this spot-on, and 6 more had the outcome.

READING 3 BRISTOL CITY 2
Reading win this five goal thriller with their only three shots on target. Nobody had this spot-on, though 14 did get the outcome.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 0 NORWICH 4
Norwich go top of the Championship as they beat Wednesday for the first time in almost 17 years. Nobody got this spot-on, but 18 had the outcome, with 11 going for a 2-1, in what was equally the most predicted result this week.

STOKE 0 MIDDLESBROUGH 0
Middlesbrough missed the chance to go back to the top of the Championship following this entertaining bore draw. Well done to sevebalo for being the only one to have this spot-on, and just 2 got the outcome.

GILLINGHAM 3 FLEETWOOD 0
Eaves scored a double as Gillingham continued their revival with an impressive victory, with ex-U's loanee Hanlon scoring the other. Well done to OAFCWOOWB for being the only one to get this spot-on, and another 9 had the outcome.

ROCHDALE 0 LUTON 0
Ten-man Luton held on to secure a point from this bore draw. Another game with no 3 pointer, though 5 did have the outcome. There were 19 who predicted a win for Luton, with 11 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks other most predicted result.

PORT VALE 2 NOTTS COUNTY 2
Port Vale take their unbeaten run to four with a 89th minute equaliser. Yet another game with no spot-on, and just 3 got the outcome. There were 20 who prdicted a win for Port Vale.

TRANMERE 2 EXETER 0
Tranmere leapfrog 10-man Exeter and move to within a point of the automatic promotion places. There were 4 who had this spot-on, and a further 13 got the outcome.

A good set of fixtures picked by TheHappyGooner proved to be as hard to predict as they looked. This turned out to be the worst 10 game week of the season so far with just 16 spot-ons in total, but at least the 102 outcomes guaranteed points for everybody. In such a tough week there was an outstanding performance from sevebalo to have three spot-on, the wins for Leicester and Tranmere to go with his Stoke 0-0, and with three outcomes, he is this weeks top scorer with a brilliant 12 points. A good effort also to have two spot-on from noah4x4, the 1-0 wins for Leicester and Forest, and from Sector4, who had the Arsenal 1-1 and the Tranmere 2-0. With both having three outcomes they got an excellent 9 points.

A reminder that the Happy Cup starts next Saturday with the Group stage Round 1 fixtures. All details can be found on the separate Happy Cup thread.

In the Premier That brilliant effort from sevebalo continued his red hot form, as he takes his total to 35 points in the last four weeks. By having the Arsenal 1-1 spot-on RSCOSWORTH keeps the deficit down to a manageable 7 points, as they both seek their first Premier title. A back to form noah4x4 moves back into the final Charity Shield spot. But with only 11 points separating 3rd to 10th, there is as much chance of ending in the top three as being relegated for the members in those positions. They may of picked a decent set of fixtures, but they didn't do TheHappyGooner any favours, and they becoming isolated in the relegation zone.

In Division One A third week without a 3 pointer has left Colukev clinging onto the top spot by a single point, as the pack close right in. The good recent run from basher2010 continued by having the Tranmere 2-0 spot-on, that means he has had least one 3 pointer in 7 of the last 8 weeks. Best of the newbies continues to be oxfcolu, and he stays in contention for the automatics by having the Forest 1-0 spot-on. By getting 9 points for the second week running Sector4 moves up another three places, as he looks for an instant return to the Premier. The potion continues to work for medicine_man as he gets an impressive seven outcomes. More outcomes than anybody in both leagues for Blue4U2, but a lack of 3 pointers keeps him the bottom half. A seasons best score for newbie OAFCWOOWB, thanks to his good Gillingham 3-0 pick, will give him hope for the future.

THE TABLES (94 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Week 12 Results

MILLWALL 3 IPSWICH 0

A comfortable win for Millwall against the Championship's bottom side. Well done to TheHappyGooner for being the only one to get this spot-on, though 22 did have the outcome, with 10 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

FLEETWOOD 3 BLACKPOOL 2
Fleetwood beat Blackpool in the league for the first time, and bring an end to their eleven match unbeaten run. Nobody had this spot-on, but 12 did get the the outcome.

OXFORD UNITED 3 SHREWSBURY 0
Oxford United celebrated their 125th anniversary with their biggest league win of the season, and stretched their unbeaten run to five games. Again nobody got this spot-on, though 14 did have the outcome.

CHELTENHAM 0 STEVENAGE 2
Cheltenham are now without a victory in eight matches after this defeat. A decent 8 had this spot-on, with a further 14 getting the outcome.

CREWE 2 GRIMSBY 0
Crewe bring an end to Grimsby's four match unbeaten run where they had four clean sheets. A very decent 9 got this spot-on, and another 10 had the outcome.

MANSFIELD 1 MK DONS 1
League Two's two meanest defences had to settle for a draw that means both teams have still only lost once in the league. A very good 7 had this spot-on, and 2 more got the outcome.

With Millwall, Fleetwood and Oxford all scoring 3 in their wins, it was always going to prove difficult to find 3 pointers from those games, but the 24 from the other three games more than made up for that shortfall, and we ended having our best six game week of the season so far. There were five members who managed to have two spot-ons, with the best being Sector4 who had the Crewe 2-0 and the Mansfield 1-1, and with three outcomes, he is the weeks top scorer with an excellent 9 points. Those same two spot-ons were also achieved by thrillseeker, on his way to a decent 8 points. Also with a decent 8 points was gerry_us thanks to having the 2-0 wins for Crewe and Stevenage spot-on. By having those 2-0 wins spot-on as well medicine_man got a very good 7 points. The other member to get two spot-on was wessex_exile, the Stevenage 2-0 and the Mansfield 1-1, to also give him a very good 7 points. That same points total was also achieved by basher2010, who came out best of those who had one 3 pointer, as he was another to benefit from having the Stevenage 2-0 spot-on.

The groups for the Happy Cup have been drawn, and the fixtures for Round 1 are ready for predicting. All details can be found on the Happy Cup thread.

In the Premier Five outcomes for sevebalo made sure he maintained his two point lead, as RSCOSWORTH achieved the same total thanks to having the Mansfield 1-1 spot-on. The decent week for gerry_us moved him back into the final Charity Shield spot. After Week 9 eagledares found himself bottom, but another solid week moves him up another two places into fourth. Also up two places, and out of the relegation zone, is thrillseeker who is starting to show the form that won him the title last season, as he made it five 3 pointers from the last three weeks. Even though they were the only ones to get the Millwall 3-0 spot-on TheHappyGooner now find themselves 8 points from safety.

In Division One Just two outcomes for the second week running means the Colukev 8 point lead is cut in half, as the pack continue to close. Up four places into the other automatic spot is baser2010, who is back showing the kind of form that saw him leading Division One for a long time two seasons ago. The next three places can only be separated by the first to post rule, as this league is promising to be every bit as close as last season. Biggest mover this week is Sector4, with his top scoring effort taking him up five places, and just a point from the play-offs. By making it four 3 pointers from the last two weeks medicine_man must be taking some particularly potent potions that he hopes will last him beyond halloween. By predicting last weeks fixtures again Stupid_Gooner lived up to his name.

THE TABLES (84 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Week 11 Results

CARDIFF 4 FULHAM 2

Cardiff get their first win this season, and score four or more goals in a top-flight game for the first time since September 1961. Nobody got this spot-on, but 6 did have the outcome. There were 20 who predicted a win for Fulham.

ASTON VILLA 1 SWANSEA 0
New Villa boss Dean Smith celebrated his first game in charge with a victory. There were 5 who had this spot-on, and a further 15 got the outcome.

WIGAN 1 WEST BROM 0
This victory means Wigan have not lost at home since February, as they bring an end to 10-man West Brom's unbeaten seven match run. Well done to medicine_man for being the only one to get this spot-on, and only DCPete had the outcome. There were 25 who predicted a win for West Brom, with 13 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

BRISTOL ROVERS 0 OXFORD UNITED 0
Both sides struck the woodwork as Bristol Rovers and Oxford fought out a bore draw at the Memorial Stadium. Nobody had this spot-on, though 11 did get the outcome. There were 17 who predicted a win for Rovers.

LUTON 2 WALSALL 0
Luton inflicted Walsall's first away League defeat of the season with a goal in each half. There were 3 who got this spot-on, and another 14 had the outcome.

MACCLESFIELD 2 CARLISILE 1
Macclesfield avoided setting a new unwanted English Football League record as they came from behind to beat Carlisle. They had gone 36 League games without a win, equal with Derby. Well done to the 4 who had this spot-on by being brave enough to back Macclesfield, and to the 3 who got the outcome. There were 20 who predicted a win for Carlisle.

This was another week where each of the six games produced a well supported team, but with only Villa and Luton reading the script, it turned out to be a disappointing week for point scoring again. Just a total of 13 spot-ons, but two members did manage to have two each. They were sevebalo, who had those wins for Villa and Luton, and one outcome clinched the honour of being the weeks top scorer with a decent 7 points. Also having two 3 pointers was medicine_man who had the Luton win to go with his good Wigan pick, to give him a very good 6 points. Best of those to get one spot-on was oxfcolu, who got 3 points for the Macclesfield win, as he also got a very good 6 points.

In the Premier We have a new leader, as sevebalo takes full advantage of his top scoring effort. I think this is the first time he has ever been at the summit in the Premier, so congratulations to him on that achievement. Just 3 points for having the Villa win spot-on, but that was enough to move noah4x4 back into the final Charity Shield spot. After a slow start to the season a solid week from eagledares moves him up another place, and within 2 points of the top three. Even though burnsieespana and thrillseeker both had that good Macclesfield 2-1 spot-on, they failed to improve their positions, but did help condense the league to the extent that only 8 points separate the Charity Shield and relegation spots.

In Division One Just the two outcomes for Colukev, but it was enough to increase his lead by a further point. Only one point for durham_exile, but he clings onto the other automatic spot by virtue of the tie-break rules, as the pack close in to make it a one point difference between 2nd and 6th. The biggest mover in this league was medicine_man, who appears to have found his Happy Cup medication from last season, and his good week takes him up four places.

The draw for the Happy Cup groups has taken place, and all details will appear on a separate thread very soon.

We are just about at the half-way stage for Champions League qualification, and with BFG qualifying as holder, the other qualifying spots will go to the eleven highest scorers over the two divisions after Week 21. That eleventh spot in currently being held by eagledares with his 50 points. Just edging out basher2010 on the 3 pointer rule. But with 10 members within 6 points of that total, it is still all to play for.

THE TABLES (78 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)




Week 12 Fixtures I have really gone to town in selecting these games.

MILLWALL v IPSWICH TOWN
FLEETWOOD TOWN v BLACKPOOL
OXFORD UNITED v SHREWSBURY TOWN
CHELTENHAM TOWN v STEVENAGE
CREWE ALEXANDRA v GRIMSBY TOWN
MANSFIELD TOWN v MILTON KEYNES DONS

Good luck everybody.

Happy League 2018/19 Week 11 (of 38) - Deadline Saturday 20th October 15.00
at 00:00 14 Oct 2018

Week 10 results

GILLINGHAM 0 SOUTHEND 2

Simon Cox's brace secured Southend victory over Gillingham at the Priestfield Stadium. There were 3 who got this spot-on, and 9 more had the outcome.

SCUNTHORPE 0 PETERBOROUGH 2
Matt Godden scored twice in seven minutes as Peterborough reclaimed second place in League One. There were 5 who had this spot-on, and a further 11 got the outcome.

NORTHAMPTON 2 FOREST GREEN 1
A 97th minute winner gave Northampton there first home victory this season, and brings an end to Forest Green's unbeaten start. That late winner was good news for the 6 who got this spot-on, and the 3 who had the outcome.

COLCHESTER 3 CRAWLEY 1
The U's go back into the play-off spots with this win, despite conceding a penalty that never was for the second week running. A decent 6 had this spot-on, with a further 22 getting the outcome.

EXETER 2 SWINDON 0
Exeter take their unbeaten run to seven with this win. A massive 10 got this spot-on, and another 17 had the outcome.

PORT VALE 2 LINCOLN 6
League Two leaders Lincoln produced a scintillating display, with six different goalscorers. Looks like only two automatic spots to play for already. Nobody had this spot-on, but a big 27 got the outcome, with 13 going for a 2-0, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

SALFORD 2 BRAINTREE 2
Top v bottom, but it takes a 93rd minute equaliser to save Salford from defeat. With everybody predicting a win for Salford, no points for anybody here.

TRURO 1 HEMEL HEMSTEAD 2
Truro remain in the relegation zone after another defeat. There were 5 who had this spot-on, and 9 more got the outcome.

TIVERTON 1 FARNBOROUGH 1
Tiverton came from behind to force a draw in a game played in dreadful conditions on the back end of Storm Callum, There were 4 who got this spot-on, and another 2 had the outcome.

ARMENIA 0 GIBRALTOR 1
Gibraltor win a competitive game for the fist time, despite Armenia having 35 shots. In what was an eventful day for Gibraltan footballers, goalkeeper Deren Ibrahim scored from his own half for English National League South club Dartford. With 29 predicting a win for Armenia, and the other 2 going for a draw, no points for anybody here as well.

That is more like it. Despite the games at Salford and Armenia not producing a point between them, the other eight games made up for it, even the other non-league games on what was Non-League Day, and gave us our best week of the season so far, with 39 spot-ons and a total of 217 points achieved. So plenty of points for most, with five members having outstanding weeks with double figure scores. The best of those was eagledares, who was the only one to have four spot-on, the wins for Peterborough, Colchester, Exeter and Hemel Hemstead, and with two outcomes he is the weeks top scorer with a brilliant 14 points. Just missing out on this honour was back to form noah4x4. He had the wins for Peterborough, Northampton and Hemel Hemstead spot-on, and with four outcomes he got an excellent 13 points. Also with three spot-ons was Daniel, the 2-0 wins for Peterborough and Exeter, and the Tiverton 1-1, on his way to a superb 12 points, and sevbalo who had the wins for Peterborough and Colchester and the Tiverton 1-1, to give him a very decent 11 points. That same number of points was achieved by mfb_cufc with getting the wins Southend and Northampton spot-on.

Details of the Happy Cup will be coming soon on a separate thread.

In the Premier For the first time this season RSCOSWORTH fails to get a 3 pointer in a weeks fixtures, and the pack take advantage in a big way. He still holds a 4 point lead, but it is now sevebalo who moves into second after a seasons best score. Also achieving that feat is noah4x4, and he moves right back into contention. With his biggest score since his return to the fold, and possibly his best ever, eagledares moves off the bottom and suddenly has a Charity Shield spot in his sights. He is replaced at the bottom by TheHappyGooner who had a promising start to the season following their promotion, but have paid the price in a struggle for points recently.

In Division One Having the Tiverton 1-1 spot-on made sure Colukev maintained his healthy lead, but it is now durham_exile moving into the other automatic spot with a decent 9 points completing a very good day for him. Could a promotion double be on for him and his beloved U's?. A solid 8 points moves TheFatGooner up another place, as he continues to have a good first season. The top performer in this league Daniel moves up seven places and into the final play-off spot. It has been a yo-yo first season for ghughes11, and he is down four places this week. A solid 8 points also for wessex_exile, and he has more outcomes than anybody in both divisions. Just got to turn more of them into 3 pointers to be in the play-off mix.

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




Week 11 Fixtures

CARDIFF CITY v FULHAM
ASTON VILLA v SWANSEA CITY
WIGAN ATHLETIC v WEST BROMICH ALBION

Tottenham are unbeaten in their past 38 Premier League home games against promoted sides after this narrow victory against 10-man Cardiff. Everybody predicted a win for Spurs, but only 2 had it spot-on, with the other 28 getting the outcome.

BIRMINGHAM 3 ROTHERHAM 1
Lukas Jutkiewicz scored a hat-trick as Birmingham extended their unbeaten run to eight games. Nobody got this spot-on, but 22 did have the outcome.

NORWICH 0 STOKE 1
This defeat brings an end to Norwich's eight-match unbeaten run, as Stoke win away for the first time. Nobody predicted a win for Stoke. 20 predicted a win for Norwich, and the other 10 predicted a 1-1.

BRADFORD CITY 1 SUNDERLAND 2
Sunderland win a fiercely-fought match in which both teams had a player sent off, and Bradford missed a penalty. A decent 7 got this spot-on, and a further 13 had the outcome.

CHARLTON 1 COVENTRY 2
Coventry came from behind to win with two goals in the last 10 minutes. Well done to OhOriOri for being the only one to have this spot-on, and nobody got the outcome. There were 25 who predicted a win for Charlton, with 14 going for a 2-1, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

YEOVIL 2 EXETER 2
Jayden Stockley took his season's goal tally to eight with a brace as Exeter claimed a draw at Yeovil. Just the 2 got this spot-on, and another 7 had the outcome.

After last weeks difficult fixtures I went for some "easier" games this week, but finding those important 3 pointers didn't prove to be much easier, and it was left to Sunderland's 2-1 win to produce more than half of the weeks total of 12 spot-ons. At least the wins for Tottenham and Birmingham guaranteed points for everybody. With nobody getting more than one 3 pointer, for the second week running we have a five-way tie for the honour of being the weeks top scorer. Those involved were burnsieespana and TheFatGooner who both had the Sunderland 2-1 spot-on, gsy163 and durham_exile who both had the Yeovil 2-2 spot-on, and finally OAFCWOOWB who had the Spurs 1-0 spot-on. They all had three outcomes to give them a decent 6 points.

In the Premier By having the Sunderland 2-1 spot-on RSCOSWORTH kept up his incredible record of having at least one 3 pointer every week so far this season. His lead stays at a decent 7 points, but it is now from gsy163 whose top scoring effort reclaims the second spot he lost last week. Just the Spurs outcome for gerry_us, but he clings onto the final Charity Shield spot. Having the Spurs 1-0 spot-on moves mfb_cufc out of the relegation zone, but only 2 points separate the bottom four.

In Division One Another one to benefit from having the Sunderland 2-1 spot-on was Colukev, and it enabled him to increase his lead to a very decent 8 points. He is showing no sign of relinquishing the lead he has held since Week 1. Just two outcomes for the second week running, but oxfcolu still remains in the other automatic spot. The top scoring efforts from durham_exile and TheFatGooner moves them both up three places into third and fourth respectively. After moving up five places last week Pinault_Noir drops that same number this week. With only 6 points separating 6th to 15th, there are likely to be many more big rises and falls before the season end. A welcome 3 pointer for Stupid_Gooner with the Sunderland 2-1, but he now occupies the wooden spoon spot after ITFC1997 became the second one to be expelled from this league.

Happy League 2018/19 Week 9 (of 38) - Deadline Saturday 6th October 15.00
at 22:56 29 Sep 2018

Week 8 Results

CHELSEA 1 LIVERPOOL 1

Liverpool get a 89th minute equaliser as both teams remain unbeaten. Chelsea have now only won two of their past nine home Premier League games against Liverpool. That late goal was good news for the 5 who got this spot-on, and the 5 who had the outcome.

BLACKBURN 2 NOTTINGHAM FOREST 2
Lewis Grabban scored twice and missed a penalty as Forest rescued a draw, to ensure both sides have lost just once in 10 league matches this season. Just the 2 (basher2010 and Pinault_Noir) had this spot-on, and the 8 who predicted a 1-1 got the outcome.

FLEETWOOD 1 BARNSLEY 3
Barnsley came from behind to get a comfortable win. Well done to Blue4U2 for being the only one to get this spot-on, though 9 did have the outcome.

WYCOMBE 2 SOUTHEND 3
Wycombe are still to win at home, as Southend almost throw away a three goal lead. Nobody had this spot-on, and there were 4 who got the outcome.

CRAWLEY 3 YEOVIL 1
Crawley have scored in every home game since they lost to the U's on Boxing Day. Again nobody got this spot-on, but 11 did have the outcome.

SWINDON 0 OLDHAM 0
Matt Taylor was sent off for a cynical 95th minute tackle that helped ensure Swindon avoided defeat. Another game without a 3 pointer, though 8 did get the outcome.

These were the hardest set of fixtures to predict so far this season, and the results backed this up, with only the late kick-off at Chelsea giving any sort of respectability to the week. That late Liverpool goal helped to push up the total of 3 pointers for the week to 8, though if it wasn't for the stoppage time goals from Barnsley and Crawley, there would have been more. So a low scoring week where nobody had more than one 3 pointer, and we have a five-way tie for the honour of being the weeks top scorer. Those being RSCOSWORTH, gerry_us, burnsieespana and TheHappyGooner, who all had the Chelsea 1-1 spot-on, and Blue4U2 with his good Barnsley 3-1 pick, and with two outcomes they all got a good 5 points. A special mention for Tropical_Us for being the only one to have four outcomes.

In the Premier A difficult set of fixtures had RSCOSWORTH going 1-1 all games, and that proved to be a good decision, as he increases his lead to a decent 7 points. Up another place into second is gerry_us, with his points being gained in a more conventional way. Not such a good week for gsy163, but he holds onto the final Charity Shield spot. The good week for burnsieespana moved him up a couple of places, and took TheHappyGooner out of the relegation spots.

In Division One Just the one outcome for Colukev, but he still has a healthy lead, as oxfcolu can only reduce the deficit by a point. That good Blackburn 2-2 pick moves basher2010 closer to the automatic spots, and moves Pinault_Noir up five places into fourth. The other member to benefit from having the Chelsea 1-1 spot-on was Sector4, and he moves up a couple of places, and well in sight of the play-offs. After his recent decline Blue4U2 will be pleased to move up three places after his good week. A no show for the third week running means ITFC1997 is just one week from being the second member to be expelled from this league.

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

Week 7 Results

CRYSTAL PALACE 0 NEWCASTLE 0

Palace have won just one of their past 11 Premier League games against Newcastle after this bore draw. Nobody got this spot-on, but 3 did have the outcome. There were 26 who predicted a win for Palace.

LIVERPOOL 3 SOUTHAMPTON 0
Liverpool won a seventh straight game in all competitions from the start of a season for the first time in 28 years. A decent 9 had this spot-on, with a further 21 getting the outcome.

IPSWICH 0 BOLTON 0
Paul Hurst is still waiting for his first win as Ipswich manager after they were held to a home stalemate by 10-man Bolton. Nobody got 3 points for this, though 7 did have the outcome.

READING 3 HULL 0
A first League home win since April for Reading, with ex-U's Sam Walker getting his first clean sheet. Again nobody had this spot-on, but 16 did get the outcome.

CHARLTON 2 PLYMOUTH 1
An 88th minute winner for Charlton as they came from behind to beat Plymouth and record their fourth successive victory. That late winner was good news for the 4 who got this spot-on, and the 24 who had the outcome, with 14 going for a 2-0, in what was the weeks most predicted result.

DONCASTER 2 BRADFORD CITY 1
A John Marquis double helped Doncaster to victory against Bradford, whose search for a first win under David Hopkin continues. A massive 12 had this spot-on, and a further 14 got the outcome.

CREWE 0 PORT VALE 1
A single goal was enough to give Port Vale a first away win in 17 games. Just the 2 got this spot-on, and 3 more had the outcome.

NORTHAMPTON 0 NOTTS COUNTY 0
Promotion favourites County are still looking for their first win after this bore draw. Again only 2 had this spot-on, with 7 more getting the outcome.

BRAINTREE 0 MAIDSTONE 1
A stoppage-time penalty from ex-U's loanee Blair Turgott wins it for Maidstone. Well done to Tropical_Us for being the only one to get this spot-on, and another 3 had the outcome. There were 20 who predicted Braintree would get their first win at home this season.

HARROGATE 0 LEYTON ORIENT 3
Orient continue with their unbeaten start to the season, as they bring an end to Harrogate's unbeaten record, with ex-U's Bonne scoring their first. Nobody had this spot-on, but 9 did get the outcome.

A mixed bag of results this week, with three bore draws, the 3-0 wins for Reading and Orient, and the 1-0 wins for Port Vale and Maidstone, making it difficult to find those important 3 pointers. But with the three banker bets Liverpool, Charlton and Doncaster all winning we ended with a decent amount of 30 spot-ons and a seasons best total of 197 points was achieved. Just one member managed to have three 3 pointers that was basher2010, who had the wins for Liverpool, Doncaster and Port Vale, and with three outcomes he is this weeks top scorer with a brilliant 12 points, that equals his best ever score. The one to come out best of the seven who had two 3 pointers was blueeagle, who had the Liverpool 3-0 and the good Northampton bore draw pick, on his way to an excellent 10 points, and a highest score in his first season.

In The Premier One 3 pointer and five outcomes for the top two means RSCOSWORTH maintains his 5 point lead over gsy163. Two 3 pointers for gerry_us, (the Doncaster 2-1 and the good Northampton bore draw pick), and for sevebalo, (the wins for Liverpool and Port Vale), gave them both a very decent 9 points, and moved them up a place into a seasons high position. Current champ thrillseeker has more outcomes than anybody in both divisions, and a 3 pointer for the third week running, moves him up another two places. Even though he trebled his 3 pointer total for the season mfb_cufc still remains bottom.

In Division One Two 3 pointers for the top two Colukev (the wins for Liverpool and Charlton) and oxfcolu (the wins for Liverpool and Doncaster) to give them both a decent 8 points, and that means the gap between them remains at 6 points. The top scoring effort from basher2010 has moved him up a massive ten places into third. Just behind him moving up five places is the weeks other big hitter blueeagle. A seasons best score for Daniel, but he drops out of the play-off places, where he is replaced by durham_exile, who had the wins for Liverpool and Doncaster spot-on..

The Champions League qualification will be decided after Week 21, so we are a third of the way there. With BFG qualifying as the holder, the other places will be decided by the eleven highest point scorers over the two divisions. The member currently occupying that final qualifying spot is Tropical_Us with his 33 points.

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