Fancy a bash at our prediction competition?

Arw you the Nostradamus of the football world?

Arw you the Nostradamus of the football world?
The excitement is building as our the first Premier League weekend of the season gets underway, and seen as there’s plenty of people on here think they know it all I’m here to propose another competition to go alongside our Fantasy Football competition.

It’s not hard to get involved, it’s actually pretty simple. Unfortunately it involves another log in that you’ll have to remember, but that’s just the way things are nowadays.

The website that it is on is TalkSport and I’d strongly advise you to bookmark the actual prediction part of it so you don’t have to read their “transfer news”, because that’s an utter waste of time and eye energy.

Follow this link to the Talksport website where you can sign up with your name, username and password. Make sure that your name is the same or similar to your blogging name so it is easy to identify who is who, and who you’ve decided to dislike due to the competition.

Once you’ve signed up you need to join the NUFC Blog League, the pin you need to enter to join that league is F6127-GTE.

The scoring for the game is as shown below, I’m not really totally sure how it works but I’m sure if you sign up you’ll get the hang of it.

Correct Result = 30 Pts
Correct Draw = 20 Pts
Correct Goal Diff = 15 Pts
Correct Outcome = 10 Pts
Wrong Outcome = -10 Pts
Banker = x2 or x3
Insurance = Min 0 Pts

This is just purely for pride and a little bit of healthy competition and has been asked for by a fair few people who use the site, so sign up, it’ll be a laugh.

  1. Aye I was there against Fiorentina and Krul was outstanding, but to be fair to Harper in the games he did play last season I don’t recall any real errors.


  2. The stats for last season were very similar just in favour of Harps but he played less games than Krul


  3. Krul has to be given the jersey this season…then if he cannot hack it then Harper should step in…Foster did himself absolutely no good during the recent friendlies, but the lad is still young and may improve…loan him out again ….

    Pleased aboot that nowt will give me greater pleasure than to stick it up em.

    Pinnochio on next telling us how the bin dippers are gonna win the league.


  5. based on what i’ve heard on the inside track, I think we will see forster take over from krul this season as krul did to harps last season. we don’t want to be farming him out. celtic are desperate to get him, which tells you something. i’m surprised fergie hasn’t shown his hand after de gea’s performance last week.

    The Celtic fans weren’t over enamoured with Forster. He’s a big lad and is apparently slow at getting down for low shots.

    Looking forward to the game. It’s an hour ahead in France so should get the score before yous lot back home. If you don’t want any updates i wouldn’t tune in here cos I will know the score at half time and you’s will just be walking up to the ground.

    you would never hear Bobby Shinton crawling on here like you did to Toonsy.
    He saved the crawling for his emails after he was banned 7 times. 😆

    Just to keep you up to date. I know you knew Bobby Shinton personally but you maybe shocked to hear he passed away 2 nights ago. He was banned from the blog for the 7th time and then was given a reprieve , but the sheer shock caused a relapse in the gangrene in his texting finger and passed away in his sleep.

    He liked you and passed on his wishes for the future before dying.
    I’ve been asked by bobby on his deathbed to carry his flag and keep driving the reality train.

    You’re welcome on board. 😆
