    Well done IronBoot for your move to the top of the League today with your very nice 31 points, I am also very pleased with my 32 points, but you have raced to the top mate, I think that Sanfran was playing a bit too safe with his forcasts this week, but big movements see the lead close up a lot, Smudger is hanging in there and is difficult to catch.

    Sanfran gave me a bit of stick before todays game, but 30 points have now been reduced to just 12 points ha ha!

    IronBoot – well done, a superb display today.
    Don’t worry about Bartonscorpion.

    Certainly is close and getting interesting.

    Some of us lay down our PL standings in return for an Iron win.

    Don’t thank us, it’s what we do!

    Like the Blades did to the Iron, I knocked Sanfran off his perch after he’s spent nearly all season there!

    Been a very close season, some very high scoring weeks from everyone. Looking forward to seeing how the rest of the season plays out – plenty more surprises await, no doubt.

    Northumbiron – I realised your sacrifice.

    IronBoot – I got to the top on two great weekends, fighting for every prediction since. Will be quite a few twists for sure.

    This transfer window is going to be interesting for us all.

    Northumb,

    I do not think that superstition really have any effect on results pal, during the past few weeks you will probably have gained points by tipping Scunny not to win.

    I think that the wet surfaces are having a bit of effect on Sanfran, these 5 furlongers usually like dry conditions and do not stay long in heavy ground.

    I am just having a bit of crack, because he gives me it before home games, but it adds to the pleasure of things.

    I am taking a big risk next week by going for three 1-1 draws in an attempt to get back into the race.

    Now now Bartonscorpion tell the truth. I only defend myself WHEN verbally assaulted.

    This transfer window is going to cause problems for us all, could boost some teams that previously have been bankers for wins or losses.

    Sanfran yesterday was not defending yourself pal, I spotted a big grin on your face before climbing the steps to ROW F ha ha! this was because of my disasterous week last week, but after yesterday mate 12 points behind you is certainly better than 30, and my secret entry of three 1-1 draws next Saturday will be make or break week.

    Regarding the transfer window, don’t you agree we badly need a right winger, although after saying that the bloody ball never gets played to the right wing when we kick towards the Donny Road end, but I felt sorry for Jordan yesterday, many times he shaped up for a run down the wing, but the midfield players just stopped in their tracks, turned and booted the ball towards the West Stand, I think that supporters must pay more to sit in that stand, I bet away left backs dream of playing Scunny, they can get rested up.

    Results this week were very difficult to predict, but I am pleased with my 27 points which puts me only eight points from the top, after being 32 points behind a couple of weeks ago.

    Alot can change over the coming weeks and there are only 15 points between top place and fifth spot, so a good week can make or break anyone.

    Enjoy the up’s and down’s guys.

    DON’T WRITE OFF THE SCORPION !!!!!!

    You did well. You can’t write anyone off this season. 2 good prediction weeks and it can quickly change.

    Just looked at latest totals. May I congratulate IRONITIS for the week before – 36pts, impressive. A couple of weeks like that and many could force their way into contention.

    Yes, brilliant week from you NI, moved you up with that score.

    This seasons Prediction League has been really good, and after all these weeks and fixtures only about 8 points are between top of the league and fifth place, so next week anyone can be top.

    Ha ha, only because my “negativity” said put us down to lose!

    Let down by ruddy Bradford, although to be fair my Bantam mate said I should always put them down for a draw.

    A very well done once again Northumbiron, your 32 points were well ahead of anyone and top of the class again after todays results. Just a couple of weeks ago I was 50 points ahead of you mate, now we are level on 616 points each aftyer my 3 point total!!

    A very bad week for all of the leading bunch, and as we say, anyone can make up a lot of ground given a couple of good weeks.

    In another difficult week with forcasts, mostly low points scoring once again, but Northumiron seems to have hit a winning formula, once again top scoring with 21 points whilst the rest of us are strugling to make double figures, I am getting a bit fed up with saying this, but well done once again to NI, you have moved up the prediction league from about 15th place and 80 points adrift to now hold SECOND PLACE, just eight points from the leader.

    We now have IronBoot, Northumiron and IroninmyBlood in the top three positions whilst we are now having difficulty trying to keep in touch ah ah!

    Well done Ironboot, Ironitis and Northumbiron. Little concerned SMUDGER seemed to have missed selecting – hope they are ok.

    Going to be an interesting last 14 games.

    Bobby,

    I tend to just check the top six or seven mate, after watching and being bored to death after watching Scunny having just ONE SHOT ON TARGET, game after game, I hope that you do not want me to check all 26 punters in the league, I really would be a sad ba–$r? if that was the case.

    Please forgive me for just checking the top six mate, Matt does a great job doing the full league.

    I changed my MK Dons 0 – 1 Fleetwood to 1-2 in the minutes before the coach pulled up at Bramall Lane. Devastated.

    Thanks Sanfran, yes very happy with my 36 points today mate, but I have developed a system where I get a very good week and follow it by scoring 4 or 6 points the next week, but just require a bit of luck same as anyone else, same as you say, very very close at the top and any one of the top probable 12 punters can still end up top.

    It will be difficult ending the season in third place like last season, but really enjoying it fully, and only a handful of points between the top seven predictors.

    See you on Tuesday night Sanfran.

    Nice to see Smudger back, was concerned.

    Well done Bartonscorpion looks like taken the lead. My allegiance to The Iron says I cannot back them to lose, looks like it cost me dear.
