Discussion in 'I know The Score Predictor competition IKTS' started by Punter, Jul 28, 2014.
Confirmed paid entrants..
My brother also seemed interested last year and joined IKTS in Novemberish to give it a bash and was hooked.
I'll try and rope him in next time I see him.
The Old Tomcat has offered to pay too, but i'm asking all those who wish to pay in to this by sending a cheque, to send it in early August, where i'll pay them in all together.
Had a mare last year but still loved it
Mentioned to Slick yesterday Punt, that if your struggling for numbers compared to last year, I will put a entry in for my son (but it will be me putting the scores down each week, as hes too young), let me know if it isnt a problem me having 2 goes as such (im only trying to get the pot up).
Can I just but in here before Punt replies:
What you ask is not unusual in that having two teams with one manager. In fact in FF it is the norm.
However in IKTS would you duplicate your predictions?
Because you are such a good player, it would probably hurt you to alter your son's forecasts against your natural instinct.
I don't know how many players Punt wants, but SteveStar's brother BoneHead wants to join the competition. Also didn't I read that some others want to join as well.
I would suggest Howson that we wait until nearer the kick-off, knowing how many players have signed up and progress from there. We might very well ask you to pay for two teams or there again..................................
I think we had about 18 entrants last year, ideally we want as many as possible I would have thought.
I would guess that by having 2 teams, your probably going to predict similar scores per game on each entry, thats how I would personally do it.
Im happy to stick with just my own, but am more than willing to help out with another entry, if we arent going to get as many entrants as last year.
Im happy waiting till a week before the season starts for a decision, as I would need to give the money to Slick to pay Punt.
The new season 2015/16 for IKTS is now up and running.
I'm getting my team down and will open a couple of mini-leagues.
As for picking similar results, well we all do that, once the season gets under way and we have a bit of form then most people in the comp should have similar predictions, the key usually lies in where to put your guarantee chip and banker bonus because over the course of the season that will do the most damage, Howson played his very well last year, as for his picks I knew what he was going to predict before he picked them and he'll tell you that himself lol.
Another lad in work is also interested in joining, I'll explain the ins and outs of the comp to him on Monday unless Cleggy or Howson has already done so and there's also an outside chance of his work buddy joining too but I haven't spoken to him yet.
Ujust got up slick u lazy pig,seen the bt and sky fixtures, we e got the scouse ankers 5.30 ko on a saturday, gmp must have been on holiday when that was agreed
I've just been reading the fixtures, seems our first 4 or 5 games are also on the box.
U sound like a bloke i work with, he seems to have a lot of ailments in his head.
When I get that bad, drown me.
The only ailments I usually get are from Kindergarten Cleggy, I'll let him off this time though because I've only felt like this since changing to a new ejuice last weekend, I'm sure I'm fcuking vaping diesel.
Thanks Howson, i'd rather you didn't though, i just dont like the idea of somebody having two goes at it just to build the pot up. I think we'll be ok for numbers now, thanks for the offer though.
Brilliant, nice one Traeth, you more than held your own in the Malvern league last season and have as good a chance as any of winning a pot.
Anybody can win a pot, last season we had 18 entries, It's all about hitting form at certain points during the season (though obviously the longer you can maintain that form the better). Here's a reminder of who won what and where they actually finished in the league
18 entries, finishing league positions in brackets..
1st £100 Howson (1st)
2nd £50 Stevestar (2nd)
3rd £30 Tolly (3rd)
Champs lge £140
1st £100 Cleggys (8th)
2nd £40 Mick Sorahan (5th)
Christmas Cup £100
1st £100 Ben Davis (7th)
League Cup £60
1st £45 Tolly (3rd)

I'll start a new 2015/16 Paid League thread up soon.
Instead of "trying to get the pot up" you could all club together and donate to my parachute payment
