I awarded a point to anyone who predicted Celtic would lose in the Europa League qualifiers AND to those who said they'd go in the group stage as that's exactly what happened.
The biggest surprise among those making predictions is that Ramalhete, for so long the undisputed champ, came last this season with just five right out of 27. lbb gt seven from 26 then came Skyline Drifter, Kjell and Bobby S all with eight. But the winner - cue drum-roll and fanfare - was, for the first time ever, ME with ten correct predictions.
And with that, I'll take both the plaudits and the cyber-pint.
Congratulations - though I reckon I got nine correct in there - enjoy the pint.
Looking back a couple of massive bloopers in mine but generally a pretty decent prediction set with a fair few wrong way round predictions which could have handed me the title again (bottom two in the first division for a start).
1st, 2nd and bottom all correct in the SPL and I suspect if Hearts had actually paid their players all year I might have got the full house there.
Wee bit unlucky in the first where I correctly named the bottom two but got them the wrong way round whilst I actually went the length of saying Ross County should win before plumping for Dundee to upset the odds anyway.
Second division was badly wrong to be fair though I did call Arbroath correctly for the playoffs and missed out with Stenny on the last day. Got Albion Rovers a place out too.
Alloa to win was a correct if very obvious call and Queens Park to make the plaoffs and East Stirling to return to bottom of the league were both correct too.
Didn't get anything in the domestic cups though Celtic was a wee bit unlucky in the League Cup.Correct by default about Celtic in the Europa League though (is that the point I didn't get?) and also spot on about Hearts.
Wildcards were all wrong though I do wonder where Falkirk would have been without the League Cup run. I also think a manager other than Levein may have given Dobbie a shot by now.
Back to the drawing board for next year then.
