Well done to Dan Kit who is crowned the first ever Just Arsenal Predictions Champions (contact admin mate for my email and at some point from now to the new season we will sort you out an Arsenal shirt.)
Dan deserves it based on for months being top (unlike another Dan who choked after Xmas). His form dipped at the end of the season just to give others false hope.
It’s all the more amazing when you consider that when I asked him who was his team of the season, he said he only really watched Arsenal and sometimes Chelsea or Man City. So imagine if you actually watched lots of football!
The irony is that on the Final day so many players got high scores. MTG got an incredible 14 points to make a last dash for a Euros spot but Ernie Blaze just hung on.
Admin Pat’s 3 correct scores were not enough (although he does have the power to change the rules).
The top 24 qualify for the Euros (more details to follow) but let me know if you don’t want to take part so I can include others. If you’re not in the top 24 don’t worry, you can still put in your predictions for fun.
We had different players join late in the season and others who didn’t play every week. So in theory Season 2 should be better now we have a core group of participants. I also think with crowds back home and away form will be more of a factor with less random results.
Again any ideas of how to improve the game, then please send me ideas on Twitter (follow me at @dan_destiny). My plan is to use the platform to grow our game.
I might even be looking for an assistant to help me add up all the scores.
Equally peeps if you ever want a chat, feel free.
I’ll be sending review pieces in the next week before focusing on Euro 2000.
Thank you everyone for taking part.
It’s been sad watching Arsenal, so you all helped give me something to follow over the weekends.
