Happy League 2018/19 Season Round Up
at 21:39 5 Jun 2019

With the Champions League final bringing the curtain down on the season, this is how things panned out in the Happy League.
After winning Division One three times noah4x4 proved he can do it at the highest level as well as he wins his first Premier title, but only just, as he beat the gallant sevebalo on the most 3 pointer rule, in what had been the most closely fought title in years. Another good season for RSCOSWORTH as he finishes 3rd for the second season running, with more 3 pointers than anybody in both divisions. In Division One Sector4 won that title for the second time, and the other automatic place went to Colukev, as they both made an instant return to the Premier. The other promotion spot went to TheFatGooner, who went up through the play-offs in his first season. Proving once again that inexperience is no barrier to success in the Happy League. The other competitions all went the way of Division One, with basher2010 getting the double of Happy Cup and Charity Shield, and a great effort from BFG to retain his Champions League title.

The 300 fixtures (including the Charity Shield and play-off games) produced 123 home wins, 94 away wins, with the other 83 ending in a draw. A full breakdown of the results are as follows:-

1-1...42 Back on top again after losing out to 1-0 last season.
0-0...27 Got to be brave to predict this, but improves season on season.
1-0...27 Top result last season, but has to settle for being best for a home win this.
2-0...22
2-1...21 Popular as a default score, but 1-1 or 1-0 is usually a better choice.
0-1...21 Best for an away win for the second season running.
1-2...20
0-2...14 Below expectations for this score again.
3-0...14 Above expectations for this score.
2-2...13 Surprised this finished below 3-0.

After a tough round of results that only produced two (basher2010 had the same one twice) 3 pointers from the four semi-final games, here are the final scores:-

CHARITY SHIELD Semi-finals

noah4x4 3 basher2010 6 (1)
Getting the Morecambe 1-1 spot-on proved to be significant for basher2010, and he goes through to the final.

sevebalo 4 (1) RSCOSWORTH 3
Having the MK Dons 1-0 spot-on turned out to be massive for sevebalo, as he just about holds on to make the final.

DIVISION ONE PLAY-OFF Semi-finals

unitedwhites 3 TheFatGooner 4
This was a battle of the outcomes with TheFatGooner just prevailing to reach the final.

basher2010 6 (1) blueeagle 5
Those 3 points for the Morecambe 1-1 proved to be the difference, as basher2010 goes through to his second final today. A good effort from blueeagle, and a shade unlucky, as his 5 points was the second best score over the four games. After winning the Happy Cup, and currently playing in the Champions League semi-final, basher2010 remains on course to get the quadruple.

Happy League 2018/19 The Final Tables
at 18:39 27 Apr 2019

Week 38 Results

FULHAM 1 CARDIFF 0

Fulham have won three consecutive Premier League matches for the first time since March 2012. Just the 2 got this spot-on, and another 11 had the outcome.

BRISTOL CITY 0 DERBY 2
Derby boosted their play-off hopes and seriously dented 10-man Bristol City's own top-six aspirations. Only 2 had this spot-on, and 6 more got the outcome. 16 predicted a win for Bristol City with 10 going for a 2-1 in what was the weeks most predicted score.

MIDDLESBROUGH 2 READING 1
Middlesbrough came from behind to keep their play-off hopes alive while Reading's safety was confirmed despite defeat. 5 got this spot-on, with a further 20 having the outcome.

AFC WIMBLEDON 2 WYCOMBE 1
Joe Pigott's double earned AFC Wimbledon a battling win to ease their League One relegation fears. A big 8 had this spot-on, and another 11 got the outcome.

ROCHDALE 1 SOUTHEND 0
A goal from ex U's Ian Henderson helps to keep Southend's relegation alive. A big 7 got this spot-on, and a further 16 had the outcome.

SUNDERLAND 1 PORTSMOUTH 1
Sunderland and Portsmouth played out a feisty 1-1 draw that did little for either side's hopes of gaining automatic promotion from League One. 4 had this spot-on, and 6 more got the outcome.

CARLISLE 4 CRAWLEY 2
Carlisle made hard work of it after blasting into a four-goal lead before the break. Nobody got this spot-on, but 23 did have the outcome.

EXETER 1 OLDHAM 0
Ryan Bowman headed home the only goal of the game to keep Exeter's play-off hopes alive and end Oldham's hopes of a top seven finish. 5 had this spot-on, and another 8 got the outcome.

MANSFIELD 1 STEVENAGE 2
Stevenage get a 92nd minute winner, with ex U's Kurtis Guthrie now scoring 7 of the last 12 goals scored by Stevenage. Well done to BFG for being the only one to get this spot-on, and only Pinault_Noir had the outcome.

NEWPORT 1 LINCOLN 0
Newport kept their League Two play-off hopes alive with victory over champions Lincoln who failed to score for the third game in a row for the first time since October 2010. Lets hope they make it four next week. Just the 2 had this spot-on, and 4 more got the outcome.

An absolutely incredible finish to the season with the Premier title and the final play-off spot in Division One being decided by the tie-breaker rules. The 36 spot-ons and the 214 total points produced the second best week of the season, both only beaten by the 39 spot-ons and 217 points achieved in Week 10. Leading the way on the 3 pointer front with three each was basher2010, who had the 1-0 wins for Cardiff, Exeter and Newport, and BFG, who had the wins for Wimbledon and Newport to go with the good Stevenage pick. They both also had three outcomes and share the honour of being the weeks top scorer with a brilliant 12 points each. Just missing out on this were Tropical_Us and blueeagle who both got an excellent 11 points from going 2-1 all games. Also achieving this excellent total was Colukev, who had the Wimbledon 2-1 and the Sunderland 1-1 spot-on and five outcomes.
A great way to finish the season with plenty of points for most, but how did it affect the final league placings.

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




In the Premier It is congratulations to noah4x4 on winning a first Premier title. In what has been the most closely fought title for years, in getting the wins for Middlesbrough and Rochdale spot-on was what made the difference as he wins it on the most 3 pointer rule. A cruel way for sevebalo to lose out, but a great effort from him to get so close, and he will have the consolation of going for the Charity Shield now. A good effort also from RSCOSWORTH to get two more 3 pointers, the Rochdale 1-0 and the Sunderland 1-1, to give him a decent 35 for the season. Just one more would have got him the title, but has to settle for finishing third for the second season running, and another crack at winning the Charity Shield. Two more 3 pointers for TheHappyGooner, the wins for Derby and Middlesbrough, enabled them to finish a respectable fourth. In fifth was Tropical_Us, who moved up a couple of places on the final day after that good decision to go 2-1 all games. Former champs mfb_cufc and thrillseeker both got a century of outcomes, but a lack of 3 pointers meant mid-table mediocrity for both. In fact the latter got more outcomes than when he won the title last season, but the big difference was he got 18 less than his record haul of 3 pointers. A satisfactory return to the Premier for gerry_us after his promotion, although only finishing eighth he was never in any real danger of being relegated. After winning Division One last season eagledares has found life harder in the top league, but having the Rochdale 1-0 and the Sunderland 1-1 spot-on finally guaranteed he would be there again next season. Going 3-2 all games got burnsieespana seven outcomes, but in the end it was going to be a tall order for him to survive needing 17 points. Going 1-0 all games could have given him a good shout, as that would have got 15 points. So his three season stay in the Premier comes to an end. Disappointing for him after being runner-up two seasons ago. The other relegation spot that has looked likely for quite a while was finally confirmed when gsy163 ended a two year stay in the Premier.

In Division One It is congratulations to Sector4 on winning a second Division One title. It was confirmed by having the Sunderland 1-1 and the Exeter 1-0 spot-on. A tremendous finish to the season with 11 points in both the final two weeks, and three double-figure scores in the final five weeks made sure Colukev obtained the other automatic spot, as both made an instant return to the Premier after last seasons relegation. After a brilliant 2019 unitedwhites has to settle for a play-off spot. He had the wins for Middlesbrough and Rochdale spot-on, that means he has got more points than anybody in both divisions in the second-half of the season. Double-figure scores in the final two weeks also for basher2010 means he will go into the play-offs with confidence, and of course he still has every chance to win three titles as well. Going 2-1 all games was a good decision for blueeagle to confirm his play-off spot. The final play-off spot provided the closest finish possible with TheFatGooner just clinging on by virtue of the first to post rule. A cruel way for Daniel to lose out after a good end to the season. Another to have a good 2019 is wessex_exile, but his form has leveled out lately, and he just fell short, though one more outcome would have got him that final play-off spot. Also unlucky to miss out was medicine-man, who found the right prescription for success in his second season. Perhaps the one most unlucky was Blue4U2 who had the Mansfield game to end 1-1. That 92nd minute winner from Stevenage lost him the 3 points that would see him finish 6th. Just falling one 3 pointer short of making the play-offs, durham_exile will be hoping his beloved U's make up for it by making them next week. An up and down first season for ghughes ended on a high with the 1-0 wins for Fulham and Rochdale spot-on. Making the Happy Cup final was his finest achievement. It has been well documented that concordman got more outcomes than anybody in both divisions, but less 3 pointers than anybody means a bottom half finish. A great end to the season for BFG, who was another to finish with two double-figure scores, made a mockery of his seasons form before, and I expect someone who often use to finish mid-table in the Premier to be nearer the top next season. After a promising start to his first season oxfcolu gradually fell away. I expect a better effort next season with the experience behind him. Another to be in the play-off spots early doors was Pinault_Noir, so the final position is not a true reflection of his ability. He missed far too many weeks to know what Stupid_Gooner is really capable of.

The Charity Shield semi-finals will be:-

noah4x4 v basher2010
sevebalo v RSCOSWORTH


The Division One play-off semi-finals will be:-

unitedwhites v TheFatGooner
basher2010 v blueeagle


All the details for these semi-finals will appear on a separate thread on Sunday.

Happy League 2018/19 Week 38 (of 38) - Deadline Saturday 26th April 15.00
at 23:01 20 Apr 2019

Week 37 Results

PRESTON 4 IPSWICH 0

Preston ended a four-game losing streak in the Championship with a comfortable win over already-relegated Ipswich. Nobody got this spot-on, but 19 did have the outcome.

NORWICH 2 SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 2
Norwich get a third draw in as many games thanks to 97th minute equaliser. Everybody predicted a win for Norwich except basher2010 who went for a 1-1.

ACCRINGTON 0 LUTON 3
League One leaders Luton returned to winning ways as they easily beat 10-man Accrington. Just the 2 (TheHappyGooner and Pinault_Noir) got this spot-on, and another 22 had the outcome with 11 going for a 2-0 in what was the weeks most predicted score.

FLEETWOOD 1 PETERBOROUGH 1
Ash Hunter scored a 94th minute equaliser as Fleetwood salvaged a draw against Peterborough. That late goal was good news for the 5 who had this spot-on, and the 2 who got the outcome. 15 predicted a win for Peterborough.

ROCHDALE 1 WYCOMBE 0
Ex U's Ian Henderson's 20th goal of the season kept Rochdale out of the relegation zone. 5 got this spot-on, and a further 11 had the outcome.

WALSALL 1 SOUTHEND 1
A 94th-minute penalty rescued Walsall a draw with fellow strugglers Southend. That late equaliser was good news for the 8 who had this spot-on, and 4 more got the outcome.

CAMBRIDGE UNITED 0 SWINDON 0
Cambridge all but confirmed their League Two place for next season with this bore draw against Swindon, who saw their play-off hopes dented as a result. Well done to durham_exile for being the only one to get this spot-on, and another 3 had the outcome. 17 predicted a win for Swindon.

COLCHESTER 1 GRIMSBY 0
Colchester kept their League Two play-off hopes alive with a dominant win over Grimsby. 4 had this spot-on, and a further 19 got the outcome.

NORTHAMPTON 3 MACCLESFIELD 1
Sol Campbell's Macclesfield saw their survival hopes dealt a blow with this defeat. Nobody got this spot-on, though 12 did have the outcome.

PORT VALE 1 STEVENAGE 4
Stevenage moved to within two points of League Two's play-off places with this comfortable win. Nobody had this spot-on, but 14 did get the outcome.

Late goals in games is something that has occurred many times this season, and this week was another occasion when they made a big difference to the final outcomes, with seven of the ten fixtures having them. The Walsall equaliser had the biggest influence as nobody predicted a win for Southend, closely followed by Luton's third goal leaving the 11 who had predicted them to win 2-0 having to settle for a outcome. So those late goals produced winners and losers, but overall it was a pretty good week with 25 spot-ons in total, and 7 members managing to get double-figure scores. One member benefited in a big way with those late goals as TheFatGooner had the draws at Fleetwood and Walsall together with the Rochdale 1-0 spot-on, and four outcomes to make him the weeks top scorer with a brilliant 13 points. Another to benefit was Colukev as he also had the draws at Fleetwood and Walsall spot-on, and five outcomes, to give him an excellent 11 points. That excellent total was also achieved by Sector4, and he had the Walsall 1-1 and the Colchester 1-0 spot-on. Also getting 3 points for those same two scores was BFG on his way to a superb 10 points. Achieving that same superb score was sevebalo, who had the Fleetwood 1-1 and the Rochdale 1-0 spot-on, and unitedwhites who got 3 points for the Walsall 1-1 and the Rochdale 1-0. Finally basher2010 was the seventh member to get a double-figure score by coming out best of those to get one spot-on, the Fleetwood 1-1, and seven outcomes. Another superb effort to get his 10 points.

In the Premier In what has been the closest Premier title for years, it took another twist this week when that superb effort - a fourth double-figure score this season - from sevebalo took him back to the top, with a useful 4 point cushion going into the final week. A loser on the late goal front was noah4x4, and he had to settle for five outcomes. I said last week that RSCOSWORTH would need more 3 pointers to give him any chance of a first title. Well he did get two, the Fleetwood 1-1 and the Colchester 1-0, but all it looks like achieving is guaranteeing him a Charity Shield spot, along with the top two. No other changes to positions this week, but at the bottom a decent score from eagledares has now made burnsieespana long odds on to join gsy163 in Division One next season.

In Division One With the top four all getting double-figure scores things are very much as they were. What it does mean is Sector4 has all but confirmed the promotion that has looked on for a long time. A fourth double-figure score this season also for Colukev keeps him favourite for the other automatic spot. After a brilliant second-half to the season unitedwhites may just miss out on an auto spot but he is guaranteed a play-off place. As is basher2010 in what has already been a fantastic season for him by winning the Happy Cup, and Champions League and Charity Shield semi-finals to come. As for the other play-off spots things couldn't be any closer. Just the three outcomes this week has left blueeagle vulnerable, but he is still favourite for one of those spots. But the big news in this league is the brilliant score from TheFatGooner that took him up an incredible six places into that final play-off spot. The hard bit now will be staying there for the final week as there is only 3 points separating 6th to 11th. This could well be decided by first to post as it is that close. Congratulations to concordman on being the first to get 100 outcomes. But I am sure he would swap a batch of them for 3 pointers. At the bottom BFG continued with his good end of season form, and will be hopeful of retaining the Champions League title.

THE TABLES (270 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Happy League 2018/19 Week 37 (of 38) - Deadline Good Friday 19th April 15.00
at 22:39 13 Apr 2019

Week 36 Results

DERBY 4 BOLTON 0

Mason Mount's hat-trick helped Derby keep their play-off hopes alive and edge troubled Bolton closer to relegation. Only 2 got this spot-on, with a further 25 having the outcome.

BARNSLEY 4 FLEETWOOD 2
Barnsley moved back into the automatic promotion places in League One with victory over 10-man Fleetwood. Nobody had this spot-on, but 24 did get the outcome with a massive 16 going for a 2-0 in what was the weeks most predicted score.

PORTSMOUTH 4 ROCHDALE 1
Portsmouth make it five straight wins in the League after this comfortable victory. Everybody predicted a win for Portsmouth, but it is well done to the TheHappyGooner for being the only one to get it spot-on.

SUNDERLAND 4 COVENTRY 5
Sunderland's first home league defeat of the season saw their 19-match unbeaten run in League One come to an end in this remarkable game. No points for anybody from this game, with 25 predicting a win for Sunderland, and the other 3 going for a draw.

EXETER 2 PORT VALE 0
Exeter got their play-off bid back on track with a comfortable win against a poor Port Vale. A big 10 got this spot-on, and another 11 had the outcome.

LINCOLN 1 CHELTENHAM 1
League Two leaders Lincoln became the first club to win promotion in the English Football League this season after this draw. Well done to ghughes11 for being the only one to have this spot-on, with everybody else predicting a Lincoln victory.

This was the second time this season we have had a week where the six home teams looked good things, and we ended with a very similar outcome. On the other occasion in Week 24 four home teams did manage to win, with the other games producing a draw and an away win. That sequence of results was repeated this week, and just like in Week 24 only one of the home wins achieved a decent number of 3 pointers. Finally the top score in Week 24 was 8 points, and that was the top score this week as well. There were three members who achieved that mark, they were TheHappyGooner who had the Exeter 2-0 spot-on to go with their good Portsmouth 4-1 pick, also mfb_cufc and Sector4 who both had the wins for Derby and Exeter spot-on. All three had two outcomes as well to give them that decent 8 points. Picking six good looking home wins is something I will do again next season, and it will be interesting to see if it produces similar results.
Just 20 games in two 10 game weeks left to the season now, and DON'T FORGET THE FIXTURES ON THE FIRST OF THOSE TWO WEEKS IS GOOD FRIDAY.

In the Premier With the top three all predicting Exeter to win 2-1, in what turned out to be the only obvious 3 pointer this week, they had to all settle for having four outcomes. That leaves noah4x4 with a slender one point lead from sevebalo, that is worth two with his superior 3 pointer total. Even though he has more 3 pointers than anybody in both divisions, RSCOSWORTH will require a few more if he is to win a first title. In fact he could still come under pressure to hold onto the final Charity Shield spot, as TheHappyGooner moved 4 points nearer to him with their top scoring effort. The only change in this division saw one of the weeks other top scorers mfb_cufc move up a couple of places. A Charity Shield spot looks out of reach for him, but I am sure he is just pleased he has secured his Premier place for next season now. It is now looking inevitable gsy163 will be relegated, but who joins him is still unclear with burnsieespana closing the gap on eagledares to 3 points. It looks like one of those two will be occupying that final spot unless they can get big points from the final 20 games. If they do gerry_us could be under threat, but having that Exeter 2-0 spot-on did him a big favour this week.

In Division One That top scoring performance has just about secured automatic promotion for Sector4. After going 2-0 all games Colukev remains favourite to join him. Another to benefit from having that Exeter 2-0 spot-on was unitedwhites, and he remains in contention for that other auto place, but is now almost guaranteed a play-off spot in an excellent first season. Another rookie having an excellent season is blueeagle, and going 2-0 all games has enhanced his play-off ambitions. After being there or thereabouts all season basher2010 looks to have secured a deserved play-off spot. The final play-off spot is very much up for grabs. The storming run of form that took wessex_exile up to third place after Week 27 has leveled out since then, and he is now clinging onto that final play-off spot. Going 2-0 all games proved to be the right prescription for medicine_man, and moved him to within 2 points of the top six. He joins Daniel and Blue4U2 on that same total. Two big weeks from durham_exile, ghughes11 or TheFatGooner could still see them extend their seasons with play-off games. Despite having more outcomes than anybody in both leagues concordman has less 3 pointers than anybody except Stupid_Gooner, who has missed many weeks, and that looks to have left him short of a play-off chance.

THE TABLES (260 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Happy League 2018/19 Week 36 (of 38) - Deadline Saturday 13th April 15.00
at 22:39 6 Apr 2019

Week 35 Results

NEWCASTLE 0 CRYSTAL PALACE 1

Newcastle are winless in all 11 of their Premier League games against London sides this season after this latest defeat. 3 got this spot-on, and another 6 had the outcome. 16 predicted a win for Newcastle with 11 going for a 2-1 in what was equally the weeks most predicted score.

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 1 ASTON VILLA 3
Villa scored two goals in stoppage time to win a sixth straight Championship game. Nobody had this spot-on, but 18 did get the outcome with 11 going for a 2-1 in what was the weeks other most predicted score.

AFC WIMBLEDON 1 ACCRINGTON 1
Accrington ended a run of three defeats with this draw against their fellow strugglers, but could have won it if they hadn't missed a penalty. 4 got this spot-on, and 1 more had the outcome. 21 predicted a victory for Wimbledon with 10 going for a 2-0.

WALSALL 1 OXFORD UNITED 3
Relegation-threatened Walsall sacked manager Dean Keates after 10-man Oxford virtually ensured their League One safety with this win. Nobody had this spot-on, though 8 did get the outcome. 10 predicted this game to end 1-1.

GRIMSBY 0 STEVENAGE 2
The lovely Kurtis Guthrie scored twice to earn Stevenage this win - their first in four matches. Again nobody got 3 points from this game, but 6 did have the outcome.

MK DONS 0 LINCOLN 2
Lincoln took another giant step towards promotion as they extended their lead at the top of League Two to 11 points. Well done to Daniel for being the only one to have this spot-on, and another 10 got the outcome.

A half decent week was turned into another one of struggle in a matter of minutes. 2-1 wins for Villa and Oxford would have given us another 18 spot-ons. But stoppage time goals from both put paid to that, and we had to settle for just the 8. They were shared out with 8 members getting one each, and we had a three-way tie for the honour of being the weeks top scorer, with the ones who had 3 outcomes. They were basher2010 and BFG, who both had the Wimbledon 1-1 spot-on, and Daniel, who had that good Lincoln 2-0 pick. To give them all got a very good 6 points.

In the Premier Two outcomes for noah4x4 was enough for him to cling onto top spot, as by having the Palace 1-0 spot-on sevebalo reduced that lead to a single point. Going 1-1 all games looked promising for RSCOSWORTH, but late goals meant he had to settle for having just the Wimbledon 1-1. With only 26 games left to the season and a 13 point gap back to the fourth place, the Charity Shield spots are all but assured for the present top three. That fourth place is now occupied by TheHappyGooner who along with thrillseeker they both move up a place, in what is the only change in this division for the second week running. At the bottom burnsieespana did himself no favours by firing a blank, and he now has a battle to avoid the drop as eagledares takes advantage with his four outcomes.

In Division One Just the one outcome for Sector4, but he still looks good for a top two finish. Going 1-2 all games for the second week running proved to be a good decision again for Colukev as it got him five outcomes, and it could have been a lot more if it wasn't for those late goals from Villa and Oxford. It will be interesting to see if he sticks with this strategy for the Week 36 fixtures. He maintains the other automatic spot, but the back to form duo unitedwhites with four outcomes, and basher2010 with his top scoring effort, stay well in contention for that place. They both look assured of a play-off spot if they fall short, but they other two spots are up for grabs, as Daniel with his top scoring effort is making a late bid to join the party. Further down the table BFG is having a good end of season as he top scores for the second time in the last three weeks.

THE TABLES (254 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Week 34 Results

BRIGHTON 0 SOUTHAMPTON 1

A Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg goal improves Southampton's survival hopes. Just the 2 got this spot-on, and 2 also had the outcome. 18 predicted a win for Brighton.

BURNLEY 2 WOLVES 0
Burnley were another team to boost their hopes of Premier League survival with this win. Again 2 had this spot-on, and 2 also got the outcome. 17 predicted a victory for Wolves.

READING 2 PRESTON 1
Reading bring an end to Preston's 12-game unbeaten run. Yet again 2 got this spot-on, and 2 had the outcome. 20 predicted a win for Preston.

STOKE 0 SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 0
Stoke recorded a fourth successive goalless draw in the Championship. Well done to Sector4 for being the only one to have this spot-on, and 6 more got the outcome.

BRISTOL ROVERS 1 LUTON 2
Luton take their unbeaten run to 27 with this hard fought victory. Well done to Colukev for being the only one to get this spot-on, but 24 did have the outcome.

GILLINGHAM 1 ROCHDALE 1
Rochdale remain in the League One relegation zone despite extending their unbeaten run to four games with this draw. There were 3 who had this spot-on, and nobody got the outcome. 20 predicted a Gillingham victory.

SCUNTHORPE 1 WIMBLEDON 2
The dominant Dons could even afford the luxury of an early penalty miss as they extended their unbeaten run on the road to five games. Only 2 got this spot-on, and 2 also had the outcome. 17 predicted a win for Scunthorpe.

CAMBRIDGE 0 COLCHESTER 1
Colchester get a 96th minute winner to give them a deserved victory. A Colchester winner in added time. That is a real collectors piece. When did that last happen? Probably when Andy Bond got a stoppage time winner against Gillingham on August 3rd 2013. Surprisingly nobody had this spot-on, though 12 did get the outcome.

EXETER 1 MANSFIELD 4
Mansfield cruised to a comfortable win to keep alive their automatic promotion hopes and crush those of their woeful hosts. No surprise that nobody got this spot-on, but 5 did have the outcome.

FOREST GREEN 1 MK DONS 2
MK Dons get a 87th minute winner to keep their automatic-promotion ambitions on track as they dealt a body blow to Forest Green's play-off hopes. There were 3 who had this spot-on, and a further 8 got the outcome.

Another big 10 game week that proved to be disappointing for point scoring, giving us our second worst 10 game week of the season so far. Many of the games had a well supported team, but it was only the weeks big banker Luton who produced the goods. Considering the number of surprise results a return of 16 spot-ons was a reasonable effort. It was certainly a inspirational decision by Colukev to go 1-2 all games, and he was rewarded with three spot-ons and three outcomes, to make him the weeks top scorer with a brilliant 12 points. Two members did well to have two 3 pointers. They were thrillseeker, who had the wins for Southampton and Wimbledon spot-on, and Sector4 who got the Reading 2-1 spot-on to go with his good Stoke bore draw pick, as they both got a decent 7 points. Best of those who had one 3 pointer was TheHappyGooner, who had the Gillingham 1-1 spot-on, and four outcomes to give them also a decent 7 points.

In the Premier The top two had to settle for outcomes, and with noah4x4 winning that battle 3-2 he increases his lead over sevebalo by a point for the second week running. By having the MK Dons 2-1 spot-on RSCOSWORTH moved a point nearer the top, but that late Colchester winner robbed him of a vital 3 points with his bore draw prediction for that game. The only changes in this division saw thrillseeker and TheHappyGooner both move up a place with their decent scores. At the bottom gsy163 was another to benefit from having the Gillingham 1-1 spot-on, and he did reduce the deficit by a couple of points, but with only 32 games left to the season now relegation is still looking inevitable.

In Division One Another decent week for Secto4 has now made him long odds on for an instant return to the Premier. It was just a one week stay for unitedwhites in the other automatic spot as that brilliant score from Colukev moved him four places to reclaim that spot he last held in Week 27. Just outcomes for the others in the the play-off places, and nobody outside those spots really took advantage, though medicine_man did move two points nearer thanks to having the Burnley 2-0 spot-on, but was another to lose a vital 3 points due to that late Colchester winner.

THE TABLES (248 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Week 33 Results

LUTON 4 DONCASTER 0

League One leaders Luton made it 26 games unbeaten with a thumping victory over play-off hopefuls Doncaster. Nobody got this spot-on, but 23 did have the outcome.

SHREWSBURY 0 PORTSMOUTH 2
Promotion-chasing Portsmouth climbed to third in League One with victory at relegation-threatened Shrewsbury. A decent 6 had this spot-on, and a further 16 got the outcome.

CHELTENHAM 3 NORTHAMPTON 1
Luke Varney's double and a goal from Tyrone Barnett secured an emphatic League Two home win for Cheltenham. Nobody got this spot-on, though 5 did have the outcome.

CRAWLEY 0 LINCOLN 3
Lincoln extended their unbeaten run to 16 games with this comfortable victory. Well done to BFG for being the only one to have this spot-on, and another 22 got the outcome, with 11 going for a 2-0 in what was the weeks most predicted score.

GRIMSBY 0 BURY 0
Bury's League Two title hopes were dealt a blow as they were held in an entertaining goalless draw. Again no 3 pointer for anybody, but 5 did have the outcome. The other 20 predicted a win for Bury.

MANSFIELD 1 CREWE 2
Mansfield Town dropped out of the League Two automatic promotion places after this shock defeat. 22 predicted a win for Mansfield, and the other 3 went for a draw. So no points for anybody here.

SWINDON 4 MORECAMBE 0
Swindon thrashed Morecambe to boost their League Two play-off hopes. Not surprisingly another game without a 3 pointer, though 16 did have the outcome.

The other time we had a 7 game week this season it produced 39 spot-ons, but that was never going to happen this week with that set of results. It looked promising when Luton and Lincoln were both winning 2-0, but late goals from them put paid to that. In the end it was only Portsmouth who saved it from being an almost barren week for 3 pointers, though the 87 outcomes did guarantee points for everybody. With only two games having a 3 pointer it was great effort from BFG to be the only one to have them both, and with two outcomes he is this weeks top scorer with a decent 8 points. Best of those who had one 3 pointer was unitedwhites with four outcomes to go with the Portsmouth 2-0 spot-on, giving him a very good 7 points.

In the Premier By having the Portsmouth 2-0 spot-on noah4x4 increased his lead by a point as the five outcomes from sevebalo made sure it wasn't any more than that. Another to benefit from that Portsmouth 2-0 was RSCOSWORTH, as he enhanced his Charity Shield spot. The title now seems to rest between those three. With the next five positions all scoring 4 or 5, the only change had TheHappyGooner moving up a place with their five outcomes. At the bottom, only a few weeks ago it was any two from seven for the relegation places, but now with a 6 point gap between 8th and 9th it is looking more like any two from three now, though with only 42 games left to the season gsy163 is going to require some double-figure scores to stand any chance of surviving.

In Division One Four outcomes from Sector4 helped him to also increase his lead by a point, but that is now from a new member in the other automatic spot. After Week 21 unitedwhites was 29 points from the automatic spots, and only had four members below him. At that stage it looked a forlorn hope of even a play-off spot. Since then he has produced what must be one of the most incredible turnaround of form in Happy League history, and another decent week has moved him up into that auto spot. The hard bit now could be staying there. Five outcomes moved blueeagle up a place, and four outcomes moved wessex_exile up a place also as they both took advantage of a no show from Colukev that has left him clinging onto a play-off place. The rest of this league saw no change, but it was good to see BFG show some of his Champions League form with a top scoring effort.

THE TABLES (238 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)

Week 32 Results

BRENTFORD 0 WEST BROM 1

Kyle Edwards scored a stunning solo goal on his first league start for West Brom to ensure victory for the promotion chasers. Surprisingly nobody got this spot-on, but 13 did have the outcome.

PRESTON 1 BIRMINGHAM 0
Sean Maguire struck a 94th minute winner as Preston extended their unbeaten run to 12 matches. That very late Preston goal was good news for 3 who had this spot-on, and a further 19 got the outcome, with 11 going for a 2-1 in what was the weeks most predicted result.

BURTON 3 BLACKPOOL 0
This comfortable victory was a first home win in 2019 for Burton. Nobody got this spot-on, though 9 did have the outcome.

PETERBOROUGH 1 COVENTRY 2
Coventry closed in on the League One play-off places with victory at their fellow promotion chasers. Nobody had this spot-on, and only 2 got the outcome.

OLDHAM v TRANMERE POSTPONED Waterlogged pitch

YEOVIL 0 MACCLESFIELD 2
Two first-half goals gave Macclesfield a much needed League Two win against their fellow strugglers. Well done to Pinault_Noir for being the only one to have this spot-on, and another 5 got the outcome.

With the Oldham fixture being called off this became a five game week, and one that would have been a complete disaster for most members if it wasn't for that late Preston winner. That goal saved eight members from firing a blank, and turned it from being a disaster into just a very tough one. Three members got that Preston win spot-on, but it was the member who had the weeks only other 3 pointer who is this weeks top scorer. That being Pinault_Noir with his good Macclesfield 2-0 pick, and by also having three outcomes he got a very good 6 points to claim that honour.

In the Premier That late Preston winner saved the top two from firing blanks, and by getting it spot-on sevebalo reduced the noah4x4 lead by two points. That was the only 3 pointer achieved by anybody in this division, though mfb_cufc did get four outcomes that means he now has more of them than anybody in both divisions. But they have only made sure he is not in the relegation zone, as a lack of 3 pointers has made a top three finish very unlikely. The only changes this week saw thrillseeker and TheHappyGooner both move up a place with their three outcomes. At the bottom, with only 49 games left to the season, it is looking like the two season stay in the Premier is coming to an end for gsy163.

In Division One By having that Preston 1-0 spot-on Sector4 increased his lead by a couple of points, and is now looking good for an instant return to the Premier again. As for the other automatic spot basher2010 remains slight favourite with his 4 point cushion. On such a low scoring week the only change in this league had unitedwhites moving up a place as he continued his hot second-half season form by being the other one to have the Preston 1-0 spot-on.

Week 33 will now be a 7 game week to make up for the Oldham fixture we lost this week.

THE TABLES (231 out of 280 played)
(Tie-breaker: Most 3 pointers, and then the first to post)




Week 33 Fixtures It is International break time again so lets go to town with 7 fixtures from Leagues 1 & 2.
