Forecasting Competition - Season 2011/12

Take part in the 2013/14 forecasting competition. Download the entry form HERE. Instructions for entry are shown on the form.  Paper copies are available from Robin Ogleby.

The forecasting competition is run by Robin Ogleby. Members are invited to predict results for all 46 Sky Blues matches this season. Points are awarded as follows :

6 - Correct results and both scores right
4 - Correct result and one score right
3 - Correct result but no scores right
1 - Wrong result but one score right.

Robin's latest report is as follows :

The end of yet another roller-coaster season finally fizzled out with a damp squib - relegation standard home form complementing automatic promotion standard away form; three 'permanent' managers and two temporary ones, a clutch of strikers who couldn't score a goal between them, and a number of defenders who tended to go to sleep just at the wrong time; no end of false dawns as players hit form and then either got themselves injured or left the club.... Congratulations, therefore to three quarters of the Davidson family who condfidently predicted that all this was going to happen at the start of the season - and commiserations to ever-optimistic dad Ian, who clearly didn't.
 
Son Mark replaced Steve Woodfield at the top of the table back in January and finally won the competition with a game to spare, eight points ahead of Steve.  Wife Christine had an excellent end to the season - scoring 15 points over the last three games to pip daughter Nicola to third place, whereas most entrants went through the last 5 or 6 matches barely scoring a single point between themselves. Apart from the top three positions, and perhaps the botom four, this was a very tight competition this year - with each person consistently being as equally confused as the next.
 
Let's hope it will be a lot easier next time around - with some of the optimists at the foot of the table doing a lot better and the Sky Blues heading back to the Championship - asuming we can even head back to the Ricoh, and I can find a club shop that is open in order to present the winners with their well-earned prizes.
