• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

.... the ratings bounced back today, with a creditable five from five correct, with another four matches tomorrow followed by the Spurs match on Monday. So a decent start for this week. ;)

Mare
..... so this weeks ratings finished up with a creditable 6 correct from 10 selections and accounting for a very unusual resuly with the Southampton win over Man City and a Tottenham win over Everton, reslts could have been a lot closer. So onwards and upwards towards the next round, and a little closer to cessation of the season which is looming ever so closer. ;)

..... these latest bunch of predictions were really a carbon copy of those that went previously. The 60% prediction rate was exactly the same and maybe the Tottenham and Southampton matches could have ended up a little nearer the mark. Still a 60% prediction rate is not too bad at all at the end of the day. ;)

.... the Paul Steele Power Ratings performed quite well in the penultimate week finishing with 7 correct from the ten matches. This week is the final week of this very prolonged season and here are the readings for that final week:-
ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE.
Arsenal 11.002 v Watfoprd 9.113 1.889 1
Burnley 10.366 v Brighton 9.302 1.064 1
Chelsea 9.905 v Wolverhampton W 10.393 -.488 2
Crystal P 8.989 v Tottenham H 10.826 -1.837 2

Leicester C 10.053 Manchester U 11.131 -1.078 2
Manchester C 12.110 v Norwich C 8.352 3.758 1

Southampton T 10.512 v Sheffield U 9.891 .621 1
West Ham U 10.367 v Aston V 9.650 .717 1
I don't think I have ever witnessed such a gap as exists between Manchester City and Norwich 3.758. Looks like it is heading for a cricket score! ;)

.... I have started tracking The Paul Steele Power Ratings for the new season, but as yet there are not enough games played to be of any use or guidance in the current fixture set up. I will probably be posting these after about five matches or so to give things a chance to settle down. ;)
 
I have done well in the CL / Europa matches in Portugal.
Then dismal with the nations cup.
My first bet for the EPL season was Brighton v. CFC (succesful).

My conclusion is and remains that we must try to catch the bookies napping.
Yesterday for example PAOK Salonika against Benfica.
I placed a small bet on Benfica (1 euro) - lost.
But from the little I watched Benfica was a third division side ! Pre-war football !
Could we have known that however ?
Benfica have a name in Europe (plus the infamous Gutman curse) but this is third division football they play.
 
..... well you will probably know by now having lost your stake. Could well be a lesson learned which will perhaps lodge in your memory banks! ;)

Yep, know thy enemy.
But ...
Ok, the Salonika fans are over the moon, but that was football from the 1930s era.
10 years ago Benfica were that bad and lost 4-0 to Olympiakos, in Piraeus but in recent years they were playing decent.
Some video tipster I watched was saying that the Portuguese were investing a lot on this match, that they have made good transfers - nonsense.

Excel calculation = Goal Difference -Rating Difference between home team and away team + Home adjustment x adjuster = New Home and Away ratings. ;)

Thanks for your comment, I am a beginner

Liverpool Difference home (11 G- 6 GA= 5)-(Liverpool Difference home rating ) 1-1 (Leicester Difference Away rating ) - 0.5 x 0.25

[(11- 6) - (1 - 1) - 0.5] x 0.25 = 1.125 😫😫😫😫

.... you forgot the basics. At the commencement of each season every team starts off on an even mark of 10.00. Then the formula is applied for each and every game. Whatever the difference in each game, for example if the home team wins 2-0 then the home team would get the different plus rating and the away side gets a minus rating subtracted from their current rating.;)
