Thanks for playing. I'll have the next game up for GW20 regardless of if this is finished by then or not, so hope to see you sign up for that.


The games other than our one against Burnley did as that was a game in hand, so you and DM are through to GW19, troylocker will find out tomorrow, while scorgasm and Shiva87's GW18 fixtures are actually played after the GW19 ones are played, so that isn't at all confusing.
Ha, I don't envy you with this,... so GW20 is Brighton vs. Fulham, not Fulham vs. United?

Not that it matters - literally all 5 of us have Fulham in the last week :lol: - what happens if they lose? Joint winners?

Though considering in GW19 - I have Arsenal at home to Newcastle, and others have WBA away at Wolves, and Burnley away at West Ham... I'm fancying my chances!

Also, according to a quick glance at your spreadsheet, Arsenal have knocked the least amount of people out of this competition (3)

...Watch them fecking lose now.

Nobody wins but you get the tagline Last Man Standing finalist which is the next best thing. Ask @V.O. @Broad Street Bullies @jymufc20.

If they don't lose, then the game goes on another week but you can pick any of the 20 teams again and would be the longest running game.

You have a great chance, I reckon. Good that you've saved them until now.

Surely if its a roll over you have to pick only winners? So draws knock you out...

In fact you should do that for the second LMS as well!

That's quite a good idea - so it reduces the chances of the game going on another 20 weeks. Will think about it.

Yeah i am in for a new round Damien.

My suggestion is every player have 3 draws. When you get the 4 draw, you are out.
3 draws is a ok number. Not too much or less. Then you can plan how to use your 3 draws.

But i think it will give Damien more things to keep control on ;D

And about Sheffield. They were the team that kept me surviving and they ended my game to. Yeah and the man and goalscorer. Same man. I might shouldn’t go for that manuscript. Go another road, take a side road and avoid Sheffield. Maybe West Ham instead.
Had the luck on earlier, and now the luck was against. So i could read it. But the reason why i last long. Because this season the bottom teams have been so poor. Special Sheffield U.

I feel since even after the roll over it's going to be the same competition so the rules shouldn't change. And I will be really surprised if it does goes past GW 20 considering three of us have West Brom in GW 19 and four have Fulham in GW 20.

So I've made it through GW19 with WBA doing over Wolves but my GW18 match is yet to be played. Need a reversal of what I needed today and West Ham to get a result against WBA to get to GW20. Do we know when the rearranged game is yet?

What do you mean? West Ham v WBA is tomorrow, @Annihilate Now!'s GW19 fixture is tonight and then it's all eyes on the 26th (Brighton v Fulham) and 27th (Palace v West Ham)

Thanks for organizing this Damien. :) Was a lot of fun playing despite the frustrating end. All the best to the three survivors.

Knocked out in the first round ffs. Thought this was a home banker for us. Should have known not to predict beyond the first round.

Wrong thread but thanks for playing! Most of the United predictors did end up submitting predictions past the first round as well.

I guess the doublejinx is just a myth. GG
All the years of seeing Everton choke against the dippers put me off too. This does mean I'm out of LMS2.

Well played mate and if Sheffield United beat City then we're 3 joint winners and I'd be over the moon with that too because feck City.

Congratulations Scorgasm!!! This ended sooner than I expected. Not too many regrets over crashing out after GW 20 now as I would have picked up Everton this week :lol:

Thanks man! Was a fun competition and things seemed fall into place over the last few games. Glad I got rid of Sheffield United early!
