    http://www.wfcforums.com/showthread.php?58442-Big-Inter-Forum-PREMIER-Positions-Game-2016-17


    I feel pretty sure this will grab your attentions because Watford are right in there ... will be interesting to see how you place your team this season ;):smiley-sport029:

    Out of interest this should be the complete entry list as we stand. If someone has posted this morning it might not show up. But apart from that, if you don't see your name and you've done it, please yell on the thread.

    So only this week, try to have all in by Thursday night if possibly, and by Friday Championship kick-off at the very limit of deadline ....

    Yep, I have to uphold that, only two different so please feliuk change at least one difference to have only maximum of seven same as anyone else on this board. That rule is to make it an interesting member game where there will be real differences in the final placings ...

    Half-Season Review

    Firstly we have already arrived/surpassed the half-way point in 5 of the 10 leagues featured in our 10-Champs game.

    These are the dates when the remaining five reach the half-way point -
    League 2 - 31st December
    Premier - 1st January
    Italy - 8th January
    Germany - 21st January
    Spain - 23rd January

    So the final half-way points won’t be known until then, but I have now calculated for you the five leagues (Championship, League 1, National League, Scottish Premier & Scottish Championship) which have arrived at half the number of games played, and the points for each player are as shown below. The more points the better so you are shown in order:

    N.B.
    In the Scottish Premier the top three placings have been awarded 10-7-4 pts although the ‘European’ placings are not totally clear for next season yet.

    After ALL the English and Scottish leagues have now reached the half-way point I can now offer results of 7 of the 10 leagues being calculated; we only await the three European top leagues of Spain, Germany and Italy. And for those three most - almost all - of you will score good points, but until 23rd Jan I won’t be able to give you those complete being as Spain and Germany have a winter break so get behind on the schedules.

    Here then is the latest 10-Champs league table for yourselves to chew upon or simply gloat, most points being the best. You are shown in order as we stand, already some changes from last report …

    So back at the end of January on this …

    It’s your forum game, but just out of interest these are the best so far nationally, those who have already broken the 40-point mark … if on same points, then simply in alphabetical order of member name!

    If you’re here - then you’re GOOD! There are another 100 or so who don’t make it onto fame!

    After ALL the English and Scottish and European leagues have now reached, and in most cases passed, the half-way mark. Here are the complete points collected from the first half of the season - however the BIG points are awarded at the very end of the season, so there is plenty to play for.
    As we know from the initial post introduction MOST points means the best. If you want to see the exact points you are getting for each placing please go back to that initial presentation. You are shown in order of excellence as we stand …

    Probably I’ll be back on this thread during these winter months with a few anecdotes as to how the leagues are going, and so you don’t forget this is talking place! …

    Hi guys,

    Almost end of season. Not worth a complete update, because only the Vanarama (Conference) is totally decided, including the play-offs. So I will wait for a few play-off results from other leagues first.

    But just to note down that at this very moment, first on this forum is currently:

    Manatleisure with 95 points (that's joint top nationally!) :)

    followed by feliuk on 80 points, and miked2006 and Hornmeister both on 78 points ...
     
    miked2006 and hornmeister like this.

    Hi guys,


    END OF SEASON results!


    I’ve now added on the end of season points (going all the way from +25 for champions to -12 for relegation for each team you predicted) in all the ten European leagues we featured (five tiers in England, two in Scotland, plus Spain, Germany and Italy). And your points can now be seen - congratulations to the top shots!


    Later on, I’ll do a special report from a round-up of the top nationally!
