Predictor Update: 11 May 2009

Only two entries so far for the Predictor – Rajseran and Kevin.   As three weeks have passed since the first post, it’s a lot easier as choices are narrowed:

  • English Premier League:  Between Manchester United and Liverpool.  Chelsea still have a mathematical chance, but it requires Manchester United losing last 3 games and Chelsea winning their last two.  If Manchester United win their next 2 games, they are champions.
  • Bundesliga:  The toughest.  With 3 games to go, 5 points separate the top 6 – Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich, Hertha Berlin, VfB Stuttgart, Borrusia Dortmund, Hamburg.  More realistically, two points separate the top 4.   Wolfsburg seem to be suffering a loss of form after their coach, Felix Magath, announced that he will be leaving at the end of the season to take over at Shalke 04.
  • French Ligue 1:  With 4 games to go, 12 points separate the top 6 – Olympique Marseille, Girondins de Bordeaux, Olympique Lyonnais, Paris Saint-Germain, Toulouse and Lille Olympique.  More realistically, it is between Marseille and Bordeaux, level on points and 7 points ahead of Lyon.  Lyon, who have won the title in each of the last 7 seasons, have fallen away in recent weeks.

I’ve extended entries until the match that decides the first of the above starts.  With Manchester United away at Wigan Athletic on Wednesday, and home to Arsenal on Saturday, they could win the English Premier League as early as this Saturday.  As it is an early kick off this Saturday, entries will close at 7.45 pm on Saturday, 16 May 2009.

All entries will be updated in the table here.  As stated in the earlier post:

To make it more interesting, the participant who predicts the most correct will win a free FIOFAFI jersey (to be provided by me).  If the winner’s size and choice of colour are currently available, he’ll get the prize early next month, otherwise, he’ll have to wait for the next batch.

In the event of a tie, the tie breaker will in the order that the six competitions are listed above.  If it remains tied, the earlier entry in time wins.  Time is taken as the last of any changes to the predictions.

To qualify for the prize, you have to be on the Participant List.

Further entries or any amendments to the entries so far, below.

    With Manchester United’s win last night, Chelsea are mathematically out of the running, while Manchester United need only one more point, or for Liverpool to drop points, to be champions. Remaining fixtures:

    Manchester United:

    • Saturday, 16 May 2009: At home to Arsenal
    • Sunday, 24 May 2009: Away to Hull City


    • Sunday, 17 May 2009: Away to West Bromwich Albion
    • Sunday, 24 May 2009: At home to Tottenham Hotspur

    Rajseran, Kevin, you might want to amend your predictions before Saturday. Hamburg are not going to win the UEFA Cup.
