Guess the correct results, scores and attendances for Rovers!

I'm ok with the supporter number predictions but think the scorer prediction is a bit of a waste of time - I always just predict Doidge since he is the one most likely to. I'm not sure why we have two prediction competitions now - I suppose the only difference is only one raises money for the club.

I'm certainly glad we have the Prediction Competition. Thanks for doing it.

Well done for keeping this going OTC, it has certainly saved me a lot of work this season

Gate predictions used to be easier to predict in the past, this year most of us are way off, which may be leading some to think they are a waste of time.

Personally I think crowds useful focus for fans, as they do matter - I'm pleased my 3000 will probably be way under for Swindon. Perhaps next season we will be more accurate? But it's your competition now!

As for scorers, I'm not that keen as it is pure luck

Pitchfork's competition has been going for many a year and does raise money that is put back variously into club.
That is why I volunteered to carry it on.

I started the other Prediction competition because I was fed up reading incorrect bullshine posts about games earlier in season. It started with me putting up league table and results alongside it. As a consequence it also allows opinions on forthcoming game to be expressed on one thread.
But I totally agree it's daft having two almost identical prediction leagues running together.

That is why next season Pitchfork's competition will be updated and altered. [It would be unfair to change format mid-season.]
I intend to just have WIN, LOSS or DRAW options combined with an optional Joker that can double scores while also retaining attendance figures and goalscorers.
Basically it would address issue that Pitchfork referred to when trying to forecast exact results a month in advance.
Hopefully the new game will still keep the element of competition between us which is reason why I like to play it.

Seems like attendance figures are popular with some, so they will remain.
Yes Doidge is currently most popular nominated goalscorer but as season progresses others will emerge. That is when the 'either or' option emerges. It is generally popular because other clubs use nominated goalscorers in their competitions.

I like having a guess at the attendances but feel the points awarded are too high compared to the points awarded for the actual result. This is what the competition is for, the highest points should be for the correct result.

Thanks John, I will bear that in mind next season with new format.

CURRENT TABLES & FORECAST v ACCRINGTON STANLEY
Image

Congrats to:
Tommo, onlineracingclub, Silver Surfer & Greeners Jnr
who all scored points on the Cambridge result.[red column] plus of course VoodooBluesMan who I missed highlighting.

Those points for Tommo leaves him a point clear of pack in Monthly table [blue column] but interesting is that he has the game v Accrington down as a 1-1 draw [green columns] while Pitchfork, a point behind, has it down as a 3-1 home win.

Pitchfork, with 43 points retains his lead for season's top score [purple column]
