Championship prediction mini-league – sixth update

The business end of the 2017 football championship is rapidly approaching and so too is crunch time in this year’s championship prediction mini-league. To be honest, if you haven’t made your move by now in this year’s prediction competition it’s most likely too late. This is because, believe it or not, there are just fifteen matches left to play in […]

Championship prediction mini-league – fourth update

Time for another quick update on how things are going in the prediction mini-league. Once again, it’s a shifting picture following another weekend of – quite literally – unpredictable action.

Championship prediction mini-league – second last update

It’s been a month since I did the last update in the prediction mini-league and so it’s as well to get this bulletin squared off and done before the madness of the build-up to the final takes hold in earnest. With only the big one left to play, this means there’s only one match left to predict in this year’s competition. […]

Championship prediction mini-league – seventh update

Just five games left to play – imagine! – in this year’s championship, the five ones where everything will be decided. Including, by the way, the All-Stars: I had to laugh on Sunday when Eamon O’Hara claimed on RTÉ Radio prior to throw-in between Tipp and Galway that Danny Cummins was a shoo-in for an award this year. ‘Was’ being […]
