Guess the crowd 2017/18

Post by Boldfinger on Fri Aug 04, 2017 7:18 pm

I know it's a hell of a lot of work and I am not in any way volunteering but are we have a guess the crowd contest this year.
I thought it was a great completion last season.

Holy cow I have literally just broken out in a sweat at the thought of that and i didnt even do the work!
I think trotters will need a year off as he did the work. Your thread also reminded me to post out the prizes for last year's winners. I'm currently sat in a wet tent in Cornwall with another week to endure. I must post off those prizes as soon as I get back home!
Shocking planning from me to be away first game of the season. In fact my first match might be Bristol city away, I simply have to start prioritising villa over work and family....

I also thought it was a great comp and it had a good following, maybe it was to much hassel for @De Kuip and @Trotters... could we just do it on a weekly basis for fun? Been watching Sunderand V Derby and for a stadium that big it sure looked empty for the opening game off the season, ok it's live on sky but i would be suprised if there's 28,000 there. If there is a GTC against Hull i would think we can achive 35,600 cheers

It was a great competition and I would also like it to happen, but as it has been said a lot of work, UNLESS it was done on weekly basis no league table just a winner on the day, for a bit of fun, after all supplying a Maserati to the winner every year becomes expensive. lol!

Sorry Fpuppies seems we have the same idea

I don't mind doing it again (that's what she said!).

No over-guess penalty? All other rules as they were last season?

Oooooh! I was going to say that but figured it's the first game so it'll be a tad higher.

Good luck.

After last seasons "Walk softly and carry a big stick" approach failed, @Villa_Dan has decided to stomp loudly and wield the stick early. Well done mate...your first 25 points in the bag!

@jeffvilla and @LVBrit come in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Personally, I think we should start scoring properly after the next round  Laughing but that's just me.

Results are below and you should be able to scroll across to see the whole sheet although feck knows how it'll look on a mobile device.
You'll see a lot of empty rows at the bottom; ignore 'em...that just allows me to add people when/if they turn up late.
