U'sual Champions League - Semi-finals
at 19:46 18 Apr 2019

As the dust settles on the quarter-final matches, using the Excel randbetween() function, the draw for the semi-finals has been made, and the head-to-head matches are:
BFG v basher2010
noah4x4 v ghughes11

The matches to predict are as follows:
30/4/2019 - Spurs v Ajax
1/5/2019 - Barcelona v Liverpool
7/5/2019 - Liverpool v Barcelona
8/5/2019 - Ajax v Spurs

Rules
As a reminder, in addition to the usual score prediction, each competitor must also predict one goal-scorer per match.

As usual, there will be 1pt for an outcome, 3pts if you get a result spot-on, and a bonus 1pt for each goal scored by your nominated goal-scorer in that particular match (own goals will count). Noah, you have played tactically and got in very early with your match predictions, which will definitely stand, but I will still need a nominated goal-scorer from you.

You cannot match anything with your opponent, so whilst first to post won't matter, it may make a difference in restricting popular options. For the second legs, the scores that matter (and goal-scorers) will be at the end of normal time - extra-time and/or penalties won't count.

If a tie-break is needed, it would normally be to predict the attendance at the next U's match, so it remains to be seen whether there will be one after 8th May - we can but hope. If not, I will choose another fixture for the tie-break attendance prediction.

Good luck everyone

Bury's plight
at 12:34 11 Apr 2019

Notwithstanding Durham's much anticipated review, I wasn't fully aware of their current situation until I spent a while earlier today browsing t'internet, and particularly their unofficial forum.

https://www.gigglane.com/index.php?/forum/60-beardymans-big-bury-board/

They really are in a bad spot, players and staff unpaid, and with talk of a possible strike on Saturday, HMRC winding-up order temporarily suspended, with other petitioners also wanting payment (including former player and Head Coach Chris Brass), the current chairman Steve Dale claiming the finances are far worse than he was led to believe (kinda wonder who's fault that is), but also open speculation on their messageboard about his honesty and indeed commitment to the club.

Bit of a mess really, and love him or loathe him, perhaps shines a light on why Robbie wants our club financially viable first and foremost.

Afternoon chap - apologies for the public service announcement, but in case you happen to be casually browsing the board, your predictions for tonight's Champions League matches are still needed.

U'sual Champions League - Quarter-finals
at 20:08 24 Mar 2019

Predictions are now open for the U'sual Champions League Quarter-finals. The qualifying groups are as follows:

Group 1
Sector4
mfb_cufc
BFG
ghughes11

Group 2
sevebalo
noah4x4
basher2010
blueeagle

The matches to predict are:
09/04/2019 Liverpool v FC Porto
09/04/2019 Spurs v Man City
10/04/2019 Alax v Juventus
10/04/2019 Man Utd v Barcelona
16/04/2019 Barcelona v Man Utd
16/04/2019 Juventus v Ajax
17/04/2019 FC Porto v Liverpool
17/04/2019 Man City v Spurs

Deadline is kick-off for any match, and they are all scheduled to start at 8pm each evening. 3pts for a spot-on result, 1pt for the outcome, and as always the result that matters will be at the end of normal time - extra-time and penalties will not count. You may only have one exact match with each one of your other group members for this 8-game round. I will monitor this and (if I can) let you know if predictions need to be amended, but just in case you or I are not online and/or you predict too close to kick-off, I suggest you keep close tabs on this yourself.

Top two in each group will qualify for the semi-finals, and recent competitions suggest that 6pts+ ought to do it. There is no first to post rule, so if a tie-break is needed, it will be predicting the attendance at the next U's game, which is currently scheduled to be the U's v Grimsby game on Good Friday (19th April). This is less than 48 hours after the Quarter-final competition closes, so watch for updates. If you want to play safe and predict the attendance now, just in case, by all means do (PM or on this thread).

You can of course amend any prediction at any time up to kick-off, and that includes the tie-break, the last prediction (however received) will be the one that counts.

Good luck everyone!

Match pass for the Tranmere game?
at 21:28 20 Mar 2019

Previously, match passes to watch a game on iFollow have been available on international break weekends. Does anyone know if that'll apply this Saturday?

Director of Football
at 18:48 10 Feb 2019

I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest our transfer market dealings recently (e.g. Pell, Norris, Nouble, and now Aisa, Roberts and Stevenson) have been very positive, which by and large makes a very welcome change. I don't know the set up at Colchester United, but how much do we have the much-maligned Tony Humes as Director of Football to thank for this?
