MPC Championship 2014/15 Table


MARCELLO PIETRO CHICARELLA
 CHAMPIONSHIP 2014/15

 THE SERIE A PREDICTION GAME



About
Setup many moons ago on the Channel 4 Football Italia Forum, the Prediction Championship, as it was named then, changed it's name after forum member MPC passed away on the 26th September 2004, at the age of 35, while running in the Great North Run. MPC was the reigning champion and also leading the Prediction Championship at that time and so the name was then changed to Marcello Chicarella Championship. The name was slightly changed a couple of years ago to Marcello Pietro Chicarella Championship.

New Players

  1. You automatically join by posting your predictions in the MPC Championship – Week 1 thread, or whatever week we are on by the time you join.
  2. You do not have to ask if you can join, just play!
  3. If you are not sure of the correct way to post your predictions, just copy what the other players are doing and you will understand it straight away, because it's easy to play!
  4. You only need to concern yourself with the How to play the game… section below.




How to play the game…


1. How to Play
  • 1 a. Post results in the weekly thread >> MPC Championship – Week 1. (Week 2, 3, etc.)
  • 1 b. Use the letters H (home), A (Away) and D (Draw)
Do not use 1, 2 or X, and do not predict scores


2. How to Score Points
  • 2 a. 1 point is scored for each result predicted correctly
  • 2 b. 0 points is awarded for each result predicted incorrectly
  • 2 c. Your score for each week is added to your accumulated total score of the previous weeks


3. The Deadline for Predictions

  • 3 a. The deadline for predicting results for each individual match is the kick-off time (BST) of that individual match.
  • 3 b. Each player may only post one set of predictions per week.





Reference for game administrators...


4. Postponed/Suspended/Abandoned Matches and Voided Results
  • 4 a. If a match result is changed or voided, your score will be altered to correspond with the official result
  • 4 b. If a match is postponed or suspended before or during the match and the game is not replayed, then the result used for accumulating your score will be the result made official
  • 4 c. If a match is postponed or suspended before or during the match and the whole game is replayed, then players can submit new predictions for the re-arranged game
  • 4 d. If the match is abandoned on or before 30 minutes 00 seconds of play and the score is 0-0 at the time of its’ abandonment, new predictions can be submitted. Otherwise, the original predictions will be used for accumulating your score and no new predictions will be accepted


5. Players Absent
  • 5 a. If you are going to be absent from the forum, post predictions in advance on the MPC Championship 2014/15 Table thread (that's this thread!).
  • 5 b. Players who do not post predictions for 4 consecutive weeks may be withdrawn.


6. Players Posting the Table
  • 6 a. Any Player may take the initiative of posting all the weekly scores and/or the whole table before an administrator.
  • 6 b. Players can not post only part of the scores/table as this undermines the role of other players whom are not included in a part-table.
The administrators understand that delays in posting the whole table are frustrating to the players. Sometimes an administrator may be unavailable to complete his role in the process within a desired timeframe due to personal commitments, which take priority (i.e. work or study).


7. Tie-break
In the event of a tie-break in the table after week 38, between two or more players. The winner will be the player who predicted the highest score for the most amount of weeks, and so on in descending order. Thereafter, if more than one player are still tied, more than one winner will be declared.


8. Incorrect Score
  • 9 a. Incorrect scores should be posted on the MPC Championship 2014/15 Table thread (that's this thread!).
  • 9 b. A player can not appeal late predictions, regardless of forum technicality, no Internet access, holidays, bereavement, apologies or otherwise.

Missing Parma-Udinese.

Parma situation

Unless Parma go bankrupt their games will still be up for prediction, although we're in a situation where they may well not play again this season.

If they do go bankrupt, then I think the fairest thing is to void any predictions made for the games they didn't play, rather than go by the official result which will be a win for all of their opponents.  

Either way it won't make any difference to the table (Everyone predicted an Udinese win in Week 24) unless anybody in future weeks predicts Parma to win or draw.

Congratulations Yockomo.


Stats
Nobody scored a 10 or 9, with the best score of 8 being achieved 5 times.

Yockomo won despite failing to predict one week.  Myself, Jay and Dels who predicted in all 38 weeks should hang our heads in shame...

The highest scoring week was Week 28 with an average score of 6.71, with the lowest average being Week 37 with 2.17.  The average score over the season was 4.36.

Yockomo's score of 171 is 38 behind last year's exceptional winning tally of 209.
Myles

Congrats Yockomo, great considering you missed a week too.

Fair play to Liam for all his work. Liam's contribution over the years has been immense. I really appreciate it.

Cheers, appreciate the comment.
Yockomo

Thank you very much. Just luck and predicting Juventus would win every game.

Appreciation to Liam for doing it all. I did something similar at my workplace a few years ago for about 20 people. I found myself getting in about an hour early every Tuesday morning just to update everything. When midweek matches are on... That's not an offer by the way.

Thanks.

To be honest it doesn't actually take that long as I've got a spreadsheet that does all the work, so it's a few minutes to do the marking for this and the betting game.
VB

Congratulations, Yockomo. Always good to see a tense finale  
Jay

Congratulations Yockomo
Lupo Pazzesco

Very late congratulations Yockomo, a fine effort.
Yockomo

Thank you everyone.

38 points behind last years winning tally! I expect that the results of AC and Inter lost some of us quite a few points. Also how well Genoa and Sampdoria performed this season may have surprised many of us. It definitely surprised Genoa followers like me!

Yes! There is a Genoa follower on here!
