PLODS: End of Season Play-Offs

Post by olio » Tue May 31, 2016 9:08 pm

This post only concerns Three Nips, Brownie, icm and rudolph_hucker...

Well done to all four of you for making the end-of-season play-offs! You've all had great seasons and should be proud of your efforts in making it up to this point.

The format will be the same as what it was last year and how it is in the regular play-offs, with a semi-final and then a final to decide who will be the PLODS Play-Off Champion 2015/2016.

All fixtures that you will need to predict will come from the 2016 European Championship which kicks off on Friday June 10th. I will post the fixtures within this post, but I need all four of you to send your predictions to me via PM. This is to ensure that there is no duplication of results or anything like that.

The same rules as the normal PLODS season applies, in that 3 points will be awarded for a bang-on score (e.g. 2-1 home win), 1 point for a correct result (e.g. away win), and 0 points for an incorrect prediction. If there happens to be a tie in any of the games, then the amount of goals predicted will be taken into account.

You have until 7pm on the evening of June 10th to send your predictions through to me... Good luck everyone!

The draw is as follows:

Three Nips Vs rudolph_hucker
icm Vs Brownie

And the fixtures to predict are:

France Vs Romania
Albania Vs Switzerland
Wales Vs Slovakia
England Vs Russia
'...Wardley again.... Now Butterworth trying to provide some inspiration; What will the response be from Rushden??? IT'S A GOAL FROM ONANDI LOWE!!!!.... Third Division POSF 2nd leg; Rochdale 1 Rushden & Diamonds 2 Tuesday 30th April 2002

After recently returning from a holiday in New York, I can now update the Play-Off situation and notify you who has progressed to the final.

The predictions I received by the June 10th deadline were as follows:

Three Nips
France 2-0 Romania
Albania 0-2 Switzerland
Wales 1-2 Slovakia
England 2-1 Russia

rudolph_hucker
Forgot

icm
Forgot

Brownie
France V Romania 2-0
Albania V Switzerland 1-2
Wales V Slovakia 1-1
England V Russia 2-0

And here are the results:

Three Nips 2-Forgot rudloph_hucker
icm Forgot-2 Brownie

Well done to Three Nips and Brownie for advancing through to the 2016 PLODS Play-Off Final!

For both Three Nips and Brownie, one last round of fixtures stands in their way of being named the Play-Off Champion! The same rules applies for the final as they did for the semi-final, in that you need to PM me your predictions before the games take place and I will then post them on this separate topic.

The deadline for your predictions to be submitted by is 7pm on Friday July 1st, and you will both also need to predict the scorers in all three fixtures, just in case of a tie-breaker situation being required to separate you if the points are level. In the fixtures where two teams are listed (e.g. England/Iceland), feel free to wait for those fixtures to be completed or you're more than welcome to predict what both France Vs England and France Vs Iceland would finish, with only the match that was eventually played to be taken into account.

Wales Vs Belgium
Germany Vs Italy/Spain
France Vs England/Iceland

Here are the results of the 2015/2016 PLODS Play-Off Final...

Brownie
Wales v Belgium 1-2
Bale Hazard Lukaku
Germany v Italy 1-0
Gomez
France v Iceland 2-1
Payet Gudjohnsen
Pogba
Total: 1 point

Three Nips
Wales 0-2 Belgium(Lukaku & de Bruyne)
Germany 1-0 Italy (Muller)
France 2-0 Iceland (Griezmann & Payet)
Total: 1 point

It now goes to a tie-breaker situation with predictions of goalscorers taken into account...

Brownie (Payet and Pogba scoring) 3-3 Three Nips (Griezmann and Payet scoring)

With the scores still level it goes to goals scored...

Actual goals scored: 13
Brownie predicted... 7
Three Nips predicted... 5

With Brownie's prediction being closer he is the PLODS Play-Off Champion for 2015/2016! A massive well done to him for his Play-Off and Cup double, but a very well played to Three Nips as well who had a great season all round!
