The final round - Round 43 - Arsenal (H) 19.05.13
« on: May 17, 2013, 05:50:11 pm »
Well I just need 2 points from the final game to defeat DuraKan and be guaranteed Trophy4toon predictors champion for the second time. Nearly as successful as Alex Ferguson.

I hear Sky tv have live coverage of the match from my house and DuraKan's house as we battle it out for the prestigous title. It's far more exciting than whats left of the Premier League season itself.

So with fingers crossed I'm going a very tactical and safe:

Newcastle 1 Arsenal 2

A win could see us in to the top half of the table...and at the same time stop Arsenal from qualifying for the CL...
Incredible really.

But none the less:
4-2 Arsenal

Well thank god that is all over, what a pants season.
Slam Dunc were rubbish and couldnt even string two or three half decent predictions together. The newcomers Tooncelona and the other one did ok.
SD are now going to think about transfers, tactics and prediction problems over the long summer hols. Might go for a negative tactical attack on the league as in the style of our leader t4t. It has worked well for him this season.
The highlight of the year was the t4t "dive" at ox sports tennis club as he took a  pasteing from SD and whats his name.Where is Craig Doyle when you need him!
Not sure if we are doing the fell run this year, but will keep you all posted (stop yawning)
Enjoy the summer

Ooo nearly forgot

NUFC 2 - 2 ARSENAL

Enjoy the beautiful game.

Right - first off thanks for an interesting first season, now I have the hang of this I expect title glory next year (well it would have been a galling for you all if i'd won it in my first season!).

Now on to the games - who would have thought both Sunderland and Newcastle would have been in the thick of the contest for champions league places on the final day of the season!

Final match predictions:

Newcastle 1 - 1 Arsenal

Tottenham 1 - 1 Sunderland

Arsenal to make it into the champs league thanks to a late equalizer by, oh lets say Phil Bardsley.

Season's highlight for me - have to agree with SD, TFT's dive

Cheers all

Much as I would like to predict a Newcastle win or even a 4-4 draw I'm going Arsenal 3 Toon 1.

I suspect the other game involving North London and North East will end with a win for Spurs so at least we should hopefully end up ahead of Sunderland. Not much to be proud of at the end of the season even if we achieve that!

Thanks T4T for allowing me to enter this illustrious league. It's been fun, especially finishing ahead of SD. ;-)

I think everyone finished ahead of Slam Dunc this year! :D

I'll go Toon 1 - 2 Arse & hope it's enough for NUFC to finish above the Mackems & for me to finish above Mackem2 :P

It's been great to have Tooncelona and Mackem2 in the competition this season, especially since Mackem2 has finished so badly and dropping like a stone. Next season they could be a threat to the title given their early season form here.

Don't know what we'd do if Mackem2 ever won the title, close the website down probably ....

Slam Dunc end of season form has been painful to watch, one point only from the last five matches as he's become increasingly desperate.

MrMalaki has had an unusually quiet season too, so expect a strong return to form from him next year.

So should be an interesting title race for the 7th season.

As for the tennis match between Oxford Sports and Bicester and my collapse on court after I was not supposed to be playing at all that week end.

I can only say that since that day we've sacked a few captains, re-built all our teams and we'll be coming after Slam Dunc and Mackem2 for the winter season with a new, revitalised team and we are looking to make many new signings.

Don't be at all surprised to hear that Wayne Rooney is in talks with us and that talks have got to a lower level  :)

Not seeing a glorious end to the season here I'm afraid:

Newcastle 0 Arsenal 2

Bad luck Spurs

Well, I'm facing a bit of a quandary. The chances of Newcastle not losing this match are remote, and yet I have to predict exactly that in order to avoid conceding the Predictions League title before a ball is kicked. I'll just have to pray that the pressure gets to Arsenal and Newcastle play with some end-of-season freedom.

Newcastle 1 - 1 Arsenal

30 minutes to go and arsenal 1-0 up.

DuraKan just needs a Newcastle equaliser now and he's bagged the league title.
