MPC Championship Table 2016/17


MARCELLO PIETRO CHICARELLA
 CHAMPIONSHIP 2016/17

 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 2016/17 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 2016/17 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.

I'm in a similar position as well but it might help if I didn't put the gobbis & Nazio down to lose every week! Old habits die hard.

Makes a game of it, though 4 points (i didn't score a 9) in 8 games is still a tough ask.

Liam, you needn't bother organizing a secret slip on the last week, because as you know i'd have to second-guess your predictions to bet the opposite and less likely outcomes on all of the games and then they'd all have to come true. I'd say if you done the probability equation on it i'd actually have a better chance of winning the lotto. When you post the slip i'll post my predictions then before you post yours, so that way i can't actually post the opposites on purpose.
Liam

OK Myles.  I wasn't going to bother with that this year because of the gap anyway.  I only actually recall myself basing predictions on somebody elses at the end of the season once, and that was a long time ago when I came second.

So congratulations to me!

Some Stats

  • Liam's score of 219 is the best in the last 5 years (I only have data going back that far), beating the previous best of 209.  Therefore Myles's score of 209 would have atleast matched the highest score of each of the previous 4 seasons.

  • Liam scored an average of 5.76 per round.  The average for everybody was 5.15.

  • For the first time since the early rounds of 2013/14 somebody scored 9 in a round this season, with 3 managing it in week 29 (Flotron, Jay, Liam).

  • The highest scoring round was unsurprisingly week 29 with an average of 7.43.  The lowest scoring was week 22 with an average of 3, where results included Palermo drawing at Napoli, Chievo winning at Lazio, Roma losing to Sampdoria and Crotone hammering Empoli, a result which would turn out to be crucial in their unexpected survival.
Dels

Congrats!
Myles

Congrats Liam  

I like the stats at the end of each season too.

Thanks also for marking all my scores and the tables.  
Jay

Congrats Liam
