FGR League position 2018

FGR League position 2018 sponsored by John Whiffen

Thanks for sponsoring this competition again John. It is open to all those who have signed up for the season. ( not too late to do this)
Others can pay £5 (leave at reception in an envelope named Pitchfork) and enter this, goals, top scorer, top seven and F.A.Cup run competitions
( all will be posted with a long lead in time to predict)

We used to have to fight to survive in the National League, then we achieved 10th for 3 consecutive years...then 5th, 2nd and finally 3rd and promotion in 2017. This year our final position is more unpredictable....will we struggle, secure mid table or be in with a shout of the play offs? We certainly gave MK Dons a good game and they are a Division 1 side fancied for a top five placing!

Last season four predicted our 3rd place, Greeners Junior & Linfield(for the second year running) won the competition on the tie breaker. The previous year Tim Barnard had it spot on....5th with eight games lost, after a year (2014) when NO-ONE predicted the very predictable 10th, our third in a row!

You have the remaining August league games to look at results, assess the squad's potential and the quality of the opposition.
All predictions must be in before the first game in September. (Wycombe away)

NO EDITING AFTER YOU HAVE POSTED!


So what will be our league position after our 5/5/18 game at home against Grimsby...... and as a tie breaker, how many league matches will we lose?

4TH! :o I don't know why. Just a 'water' feeling.

With a forecast like that, I will pass on the games lost as a tie-breaker. :lol:
Quo tendimus?

Yes but predict number of games FGR will lose in the season and I'll get the other predictor of the same position to do the same

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
