Lesson #324 in "Time Killing" : Predict the Final Table...

So there I was (am) bored on a Sunday afternoon, when I stroll across the BBC's very own Final Premiership Table Predictor extravaganza roadshow webpage [see link below].

After entering a series of binary scores (1 if i think they will win, 0 if i dont and 0-0 for a draw), I pressed the update button and low and behold... somehow Chelsea win the league.

I dont know if this is a default piece of coding to the webpage or not but it suprised me to be honest. Also other things worthy of note :- Three London clubs for the drop even though Charlton escape the drop on the final day as Fulham couldnt get that much needed away win at the Riverside stadium.

Remember where you read it first ;-)

Here's my Final Table, but please feel free to follow rule #324 at work by following this link [Go on... click me... you know you want too...] and posting your findings back here on SPAOTP. I'm off to the bookies...

  1. Chelsea 93
  2. Man U 92
  3. Liverpool 78
  4. Arsenal 77
  5. Bolton 62
  6. Everton 59
  7. Tottenham 59
  8. Aston Villa 57
  9. Blackburn 54
  10. Newcastle 53
  11. Reading 52
  12. Portsmouth 50
  13. Middlesboro 46
  14. Wigan 39
  15. Sheff Utd 38
  16. Man City 35
  17. Charlton 35
  18. Fulham 34
  19. West Ham 24
  20. Watford 21

So, Chelsea to pip United by a point, eh? I must say at the moment it looks slightly unlikely, but not completely beyond the realms of the imagination.

Also re: Fulham, I still say they win games more often than say Charlton - the best of the bottom 3 for my money.

Should be interesting waiting for the final outcome though!

I gave it a go using 1's & 0's and it came out like this:

93 Man Utd
80 Chelsea
74 Arsenal
74 Liverpool
63 Bolton
58 Tottenham
57 Reading
56 Middlesboro
55 Blackburn
54 Portsmouth
52 Newcastle
51 Everton
40 Aston Villa
39 Wigan
38 Fulham
38 Sheffield Utd
35 Charlton
33 Man City
24 Watford
23 West Ham

But then I'm not known as the greatest predictor in the world.

Kedge - you reckon Man City will go down?!? That's quite a prediction on your part... then again, they are only one place above the bottom three at the moment.

And Tottenham sixth? That's almost as controversial!

OK, I've just done my predictions too. That's an hour of my life that I won't get back, but still... :)

Here's my table:

1 Man Utd 97
2 Chelsea 89
3 Liverpool 78
4 Arsenal 70
5 Bolton 59
6 Everton 56
7 Blackburn 56
8 Reading 54
9 Middlesbro 53
10 Portsmouth 52
11 Tottenham 52
12 Newcastle 48
13 Aston Villa 44
14 Wigan 43
15 Sheff Utd 40
16 Fulham 38
17 Man City 35
18 Charlton 29
19 Watford 21
20 West Ham 21

So here's what caught my eye:

* I've got Man U on the biggest points total of all of us so far - 97. Too high, do you think?

* Aston Villa quite high up in 13th, yet they're decidedly inconsistent bordering on poor at the moment. Actually, Smart - you've got them in 8th!!! How come?!?! :)
