The Predictions League is BACK!


Welcome to the oneBoro 2016/17 Predictions League.


All those from last season wishing to continue in the competition will be allocated leagues based on last seasons results.


New members are welcome - just let me know below if you want to join in and we will add you to one of the leagues.


The rules:


  • Each weekend set of Premier League fixtures will be set to predict upon, giving Home, Draw or Away as a result (Saturday and Sunday fixtures only). You will also be asked to predict the first Boro goal scorer (own goal/no scorer also count).


  • As last season you will be going head to head with a league opponent. The predictor with the highest number of correct predictions (1 point for correct result, 1 point for correct scorer) will gain 3 league points, 1 point for a draw and 0 for a loss. 


  • If your opponent fails to predict, you will be judged against the league average. If you win, lose or draw against the league average you will score the normal points. The non predicting player will still score 0.


  • At the end of the season, the predictor with the highest number of correct prediction points will be awarded 5 bonus league points for being awesome. 


  • The deadline for predicting each week will be 11am on Saturday morning of the fixtures. Late predictions will not be accepted and will be ignored. If you are away for a period of fixtures then you can PM future predictions to me and they will be entered on your behalf.


  • Results will be posted each week shortly after the final result.


Please also let me know if there is interest in an additional Predictions League Cup competition to be run along side the FA Cup.


Sign up below - and good luck predictors, new and old!

    • These Championship games are coming thick & fast, next up are high flying Swansea City With not much resting time between games NW won’t allow his players to feel sorry for themselves after Saturdays away defeat to Huddersfield, when we were totally in control then just fell away, he will tell the player’s  to dust themselves down & hopefully, a repeat performance of our last home game & make amends for Saturdays defeat With 2 defeats in the last 3 games the Swansea fixture is certainly a really tough fixture to try & get things up & running & go on another unbeaten run, Neil Warnock will certainly have his players pumped up for this game There are a few headaches, a possible concern injury with the player of the season for me, Dijksteel, while he has as striker options upfront to consider with Assombalonga, Akpom or Watmore??? It's Swansea 23rd visit on Teesside, with Boro winning 12, drawing 5 & losing 5, scoring 57 & conceding 31 Our 1st home win against Swansea was a 7-1 thrashing, we’ve had a couple of 6-2 wins & in 2 games, both George Camsell & Brian Clough scored 4 goals in one game past them Our last home victory against Swansea was a 3-0 win in our PL relegation season & Jonathan Woodgate final game in charge before the introduction of the messiah, Neil Warnock    Selected players who have represented both teams Bill Harris Swansea born he signed for his hometown club but didn’t start a game, he later went to Hull & in 1954 signed for the Boro for £15k where he went on to play 378 games, scoring 72 goals, he became our main penalty taker at one time, he scored twice against his home town club, one from the spot At one time Phil Boersma ‪ was our record signing £72k, playing 47 games between ‪1975 -77‬, scoring 3 goals. Later for Swansea in season ‪78-79 playing 18 games, scoring 1 goal Another one of our record signings, John Mahoney ‪costing £90k played 77 league games between ‪1977 -79‬, scoring 1 league goal, at Swansea he played 110 games, again scoring league 1 goal Dimi Konstantopoulos Boro ‪‪2013-2019 98‬ games, Swansea on loan from Coventry in 2008 4 games Marvin Emnes played 141 games for Boro, scoring 24 goals between ‪‪2008-14‬, he had 2 loan spells at Swansea 2010 & ‪‪20140 11‬ games 3 goals, signed ‪‪2014-17‬ where he played 19 games, zero goals Danny Graham 21 goals in 62 appearances for Swansea.  Boro 2 spells, he broke through in to the 1st team in ‪‪2004-2007‬ scoring 1 goals v Coventry in 15 appearances & came back on loan in 2014 playing 18 games scoring 6 goals Connor Roberts 4 games for the Boro, Swansea to date, 101 games, one goal Kyle Naughton played 15 games for the Boro, at Swansea to date, 177 games, 5 goalsF   Facts of the day Dave Currie made Boro debut away to Swansea, when coming on as sub, replacing Dave Thomas for our final 1st division (now PL), away game in our 81-82 relegated season Swansea were our last FAC opponents at Ayresome Park when they dumped us out of the FAC 3rd round in January1995   Blast from the past   
    • Regarding Valdes. Are we really discussing the ability of a goalkeeper who has literally won every trophy possible and clocked up nearly 400 appearances for a team that was probably the best club side seen by an entire generation? The regular and quite ridiculous argument directed at Valdes was he had little to do for Barca such was they dominance. Do people genuinely think to be a keeper at the best club on the planet for as long as he was, that all you need to do is be able stand between two posts? Do people know how hard it is to even become a professional footballer at a half decent level never mind do it at the very elite level for as long as he did and we are discussing if he was a good keeper? Was he as good for as he was Barca? Well obviously not. But no player is going to be as good as for Boro as they would for Barca. You look better with better players around you. That is a simple fact.
    • Depends what you're using really. You shouldn't have any problems using a computer, or laptop which is by far the best option. However, if your using a phone it might not be up to the job, You need at least 4 GBs of ram for a decent stream, so if you're using a phone, it's time to upgrade.
