Football Handicap - 2020/21

Postby Selby White » 31 Jul 2020, 10:46

Will run the football handicap again for those members interested.
Only takes a one off entry at start of the season, give it a go :thumbup:

Rules :-
1. You pick two teams in both the Premier League & Championship prior to the season start (4 teams in total).
Each team will have a weighting factor (somewhere between 1 & 3)
This factor is multiplied by the teams points to give their game points.
eg Liverpool score 99pts weight 1 so end up with 99pts
& Newcastle say get 50pts but with weight of 2 get 100pts so would finish higher.


2. You can't pick the same two teams as anyone else in either division (one same but 2nd team needs then to be different).

3. Result is decided by sum total of all four of your teams.

4. Open to all forum members.

5. Will update with "as it stands" table at intervals through the season. Pick your 4 teams and watch them do the work for you.

So here goes :-

Premier League (Teams & Weighting Factor)-
Liverpool - 1
Man City - 1.1
Man Utd - 1.4
Chelsea - 1.5
Spurs - 1.6
Leicester- 1.7
Arsenal - 1.7
Wolves - 1.7
Sheff Utd - 1.8
Burnley - 1.9
Southampton - 2
Everton - 2
Leeds - 2
Newcastle - 2.1
Crystal Palace - 2.2
Fulham - 2.3
Brighton - 2.4
West Ham - 2.5
West Brom - 2.7
Aston Villa - 2.8

Championship :-
Brentford - 1.1
Bounemouth - 1.1
Watford - 1.2
Cardiff - 1.3
Swansea - 1.3
Norwich - 1.4
Forest - 1.4
Millwall - 1.5
Preston - 1.5
Derby - 1.5
Blackburn - 1.6

Coventry - 1.9
Middlesboro - 1.9
Huddersfield - 2
Luton - 2
Rotherham - 2.1
Birmingham - 2.1
Wycombe - 2.2
Barnsley - 2.2

Note - This competition will only run if we get 10 or more members having a go (otherwise not worth the work load)
Keep your face always toward the sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.
