Prediction League 2023/24

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 2023/24 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 2024, which is based on the FA Cup!

Prediction League 2023/24

Post by Bluemike » Tue Jul 18, 2023 8:51 am

With the start of the new season only Three weeks away it will soon be time for the resumption of our prediction League, so we can get an idea of numbers interested could you please show your interest in the thread.

I believe we have some old faces returning as well as a new face or Two, hopefully more, everyone is welcome and it literally takes 5 minutes each week to do.

All we ask is if you sign up please see it through to the seasons end, missing an odd week is often unavoidable but dropping out can often affect the cup competitions.

Regards
Mike

I think I’m gonna take a break this season. I’m taking a couple courses in November, and I may not have time to actively participate. Good luck everyone! Hopefully I’ll be back the next season when we’re in the Premier League!

I was wavering, however, what is 5 minutes out of your week. You guys do a fantastic job, giving up a lot of your time so the rest of us can have a bit of fun and also extra banter.

Therefore count me. :D

Really needs to be a 911 GT2, or a Turbo S would also be an acceptable prize.

Marko said he would join in again, which in turn makes me join again as I can't be bottom now.

Welly is in again as well, you probably aren't aware he enters each week as there is little that is memorable about his performances. :wink:

To be honest, I need a break from TB.com in general. I haven’t been impressed with exchanges I’ve had of late with certain forum members I used to consider friends. One of those members basically ignores me now since I interfered with a disagreement he had with someone else. I really don’t need the politics, I’m a nice guy and I never mean to offend anyone. I’ve got more important things to pursue to enhance my life, rather than playing Mickey Mouse games with old, miserable c*cks. Sorry that’s just how I feel at the moment. Obviously I want my beloved club to excel, and I’m confident they will. COYB!

We here at Team M69 had “wooden spoon chat” but decided to be much more positive after it.
We’re going to wipe the floor with all of you. The first ever Grand Slam coming up! And with a seasoned challenger like 9 out, even more chance! 👍👌

Hands up who sung the above? 🙋‍♂️ I was singing it under my breath and the stepson said, “Eh? Why you singing that?!” 🤦‍♂️ Caught red n white handed.

But yep……. Would NOT bet against that 4th individual title. Team BM…… the Real Madrid of the Prediction League. You should call yourself BM IPSWICH. :lol:
Lets give ourselves names. 👍👌

What about Team COOL AZZ for you, Mark?

Really wanted no further part of it, tired of finishing in last place or months of "effort" and focus coming to absolute zero. Got to ask yourself what's the point in being involved when you come last or make a real mess of things, it's kind of demoralizing after a certain point.

Going to regret it but prepared to give it another shot. As someone else alluded to it's tiring on the pages sometimes and some names are real hard work but you got to rise above certain elements.
