2017-18 Championship League Positions Game


The big Premier Positions Game won’t be going this new season - at least from us. The organizers - Sunderland’s Hakuna Matata and myself are left without premier league representation after Sunderland’s unfortunate demise, and if I’m honest it has eaten up a mountain of time these past five or six seasons or so because of the so regular updates, and a little welcome break is dearly needed. But I couldn't help feeling that we should try something given that both Reading and Sunderland are Championshp rivals this season!

So here is a modified easy version of "positions" for the Championship, which I have experimented with before on RR so I’m confident that it’ll go well on a small scale. We’re doing it among four forums only; Reading’s ‘Royals Rendezvous’, Sunderland’s ‘Black Cat Chat’, Leeds ‘LUFC Talk’ and Fulham’s ‘Friends of Fulham’.

This game is pretty simple -

here are the 24 Championship teams in alphabetical order:
Aston Villa
Barnsley
Birmingham City
Bolton Wanderers
Brentford
Bristol City
Burton Albion
Cardiff City
Derby County
Fulham
Hull City
Ipswich Town
Leeds United
Middlesbrough
Millwall
Norwich City
Nottingham Forest
Preston North End
Queens Park Rangers
Reading
Sheffield United
Sheffield Wednesday
Sunderland
Wolverhampton Wanderers


All I need before the Championship kick-off - that’s FRIDAY 4TH AUGUST at 7.45pm! - are your guesses at the top six come May (in order 1 to 6) and the bottom 3 (in order 22-24), plus the position that you believe YOUR TEAM will finish.

There will be points awarded for your predos at 4 stages during the season:
after 11 games (*), after 23 games(*), after 35 games (*) and at the end of the season after the last game has been played.
(* = understood to be when the majority of clubs are on this number of games played).

POINTS AWARDED - for each stage:

For a club correctly named in top 6 = 2 points
For a club in the top 6 named in the exact position = 3 points
For a club correctly named in a relegation position = 1 point
For a club in relegation position named in the exact position = 2 points

Points For YOUR club: exact position = 6 points / one position off = 5 points (e.g. you say 7th but your team lies 8th) / 2 positions off = 4 points / 3 positions off = 3 points / 4 positions off = 2 points / 5 positions off = 1 point. Please note: if you name your team for top six or bottom three you score for that club on both concepts (e.g. you support Wolves and put them 6th and they are indeed sixth; you score 3 points for overall position plus 6 points for your team guess = 9 points for this team).

For EACH update you will get these points anew and added on to your existing total - BUT in the final update at the very end of season all points for the final quarter scores are doubled. The winners are those with the HIGHEST points mounted up across the whole season.

Enjoy it!!

Here is the first update, after 11 games played. As there are still few points on the board for the majority of uss, they are not yet placed in order of merit. That will come next time, after 23 games played.
This is a bit time-consuming, it’s all done by hand. If you find a small error don’t hesitate in telling me and I’ll update. But I think it’s good (famous last words!...).
