Head 2 Head Competition 2021

Every week there will be a series of fixtures (or questions) for you to predict the results of. This will be a perfect chance for you to show how much you know about football (or how little) and prove that you are the smartest Ipswich fan. The 2020/21 season will feature the Main Competition including a repeat of last years Promotion/Relegation format and the popular addition of the 'Head to Head' Competition. We will also play for the coveted TB Cup which will commence in January 2021, which is based on the FA Cup!

Post by Bluemike » Sun Dec 13, 2020 6:38 pm

This seasons Head 2 Head Competition will kick off on Saturday 19th December 2020 with the same format as previous seasons. The League section will run for 17 weeks followed by the play offs between the Top six at the end of the league Fixtures, again with the same format. Due to having Seventeen players in the competition each player will have a "Bye" week.

Once the League section has been completed the Top Six will fight it out in the play offs to decide the H2H champion for 2021 and again it will be exactly as last season.....

Week 18 will see the Two players finishing in 6th & 5th in the H2H Table play off

Week 19 will see the winner of the 6th/5th play off play the player finishing 4th in the H2H table

Week 20 will see the winner of the 6th/5th/4th play off play the player finishing in 3rd in the H2H table

Week 21 will see the winner of the 6th/5th/4th/3rd play off play the player finishing in 2nd in the H2H table

Week 22 will see the winner of the 6th/5th/4th/3rd/2nd play off play the player finishing 1st in the H2H table (The winner of this being crowned H2H Champ 2021).

Hey Mike

We may need to start before 2 Jan as we have a short season this year.

I think the maximum number of PL games we have this season is 38 which includes FA Cup/ TB Cup weekends.

We have a couple of options.

1) Could you start the H2H Comp sooner, eg. this coming weekend.

Or

2) We could throw in a small number of Mid Week fixtures (2-4max). If we do this we could make them Double Rounds to reduce the chances of anyone missing a mid week round.

Take a look and see what you think.

Any other suggestions welcome.

Not a problem to me Andy, I'll sort it tonight for a start this weekend, to be honest I wasn't aware it was a shorter season, how many weeks is the Prediction League planning on running this time, less than the usual 44/45 ?

Unless we throw in a couple of midweek games it’s as I said above, 38 weeks inc FA Cup / TB Cup weekends, I think in the past we’ve tried to avoid playing both Comps at the same time.

The problem we have this season is that the 2021/22 Football Season is being player over a shorter than normal period with more mid week fixtures, although bizarrely there are no extra games being played over the New Year Bank or Easter Bank Holiday when we would usually play Double Header Prediction League Rounds.

I’ve not looked at FA Cup dates for next year, if they’re played mid week we may be able to get our Pred League Season up to 40 rounds.

Great stuff Andy, I think it would be good to try to get it up to a nice round 40 weeks, some midweek interest would add to the fun.
