2016-17
Tipping Competition


A-League football (soccer) is back for another year so get your names down and your dartboards out for another lucky dip.

Rules
  • Threads will close prior to the start of the first game.
  • A bonus point will be awarded for a perfect score.
  • A bonus point will also be awarded for anyone that tips a result solo.
  • Ties will be broken in the following order
    1) HoF/Spoon differential
    2) Most Hall of Fame awards
  • Picks of all home games - not eligible for any bonus points.
  • Default will be equal to the lowest score each round.
  • Late starters will be given a score equivalent to the last-placed active tipster.

First round starts Friday 7th October, and fixtures will be posted very soon (maybe sooner than you expect). Most rounds will kick off on Friday evening and threads will close just prior to that time. This year's comp will be the 12th A-League season, and the 12th tipping comp here at FT. Will N-Bomb be the first defending title-holder to win back-to-back comps? He's the only payer to win this comp twice (last year and three years ago). All will be revealed over the coming months.

  • Welcome to the 2016/17 tipping competition of torture also known as the A-League football/soccer competition. We welcome back all 12 of us from last season and 2 new victims, an even bigger thank you to MrFox and Shadowmyst2004 for joining the nightmare of an A-League tipping season.
  • The season began with Brisbane hosting Melbourne Victory, Matt McKay became the first player to be sent off this season when he picked up a second yellow card in the 66th minute to hand Melbourne an advantage. They turned this advantage into a goal with 7 minutes left only for Brisbane to stun them with an equaliser in the last minute of added time. Melbourne City scored in the first half away to Wellington Phoenix and that proved to be enough to earn the win despite having their goalkeeper sent of in the second half for deliberate handball outside of the penalty area to stop a potential equalising goal. Sydney FC continued its domination of the Sydney derby with a comprehensive second half display. The first half was full of missed chances and an all-in melee while the second half saw a Western Sydney red card and 4 Sydney goals. Perth Glory will be wondering what happened in their home opener against Central Coast after leading 3-0 at half time only for the Mariners to fight back and secure a 3-3 draw, the first match of the season where no one was sent off. In a tight match it was a good start for Newcastle Jets as they held the reigning champion Adelaide to a 1-1 draw at home.
  • We had a slightly better opening round this season than last season as we went 15/70 or 21.42%, last season it was 20.69%. It looks like it will be yet another long season of struggle for us.
  • N-Bomb earns the first bonus point of the season when tipping Newcastle to draw with Adelaide but none of us saw Central Coast drawing away to Perth, Central Coast lost 20 times in 27 games last season. The easiest match to tip was Melbourne City winning away at an under-strenth Wellington Phoenix where 9 of us got this correct.
  • N-Bomb was the only one who got more than a 50% strike rate and as a result earns the weekly win with 3/5. On the other hand, Shadowmyst2004, srini701 amd Howie72 all failed to get off the mark and take home a spoon each with 0/5.
  • N-Bomb starts off where he ended last season - atop the leaderboard, the bonus point giving him a 2 point buffer over wwe84 and Sypher.

  • Adelaide began the the replay of last season's grand final with Western Sydney well by taking a 1-0 lead into the break but it was the Wanderers who got revenge when two unanswered second half goals earned them the 3 points, the winner coming in added time. Sydney FC made it back-to-back 4-0 wins when demolishing Central Coast at home to leave the visitors without a win in their last 12 matches. Melbourne City dominated the first Melbourne derby of the season against Melbourne Victory by bulging the old onion bag 4 times to 1. Newcastle Jets also scored 4 times as they dominated their home game against Brisbane Roar, the 4-0 win is their biggest over Brisbane and their first in the last 7 attempts. It was a hard fought match but Perth ended up 2-0 victors over the visiting Welington Phoenix, helped a little by the major refereeing decisions benefitting them, 2 penalties awarded to the home team which one was very dodgy and a wonderful Perth dive, which would look better at the Olympics, fooling the referee into giving a yellow card to a Phoenix player.
  • Shadowmyst was running on default fuel this week while ElfTwinkle missed the Adelaide vs Western Sydney match with late tips.
  • We had a good A-League round this time as we went 29/64 or 45.31% but still got more wrong than right.
  • N-Bomb makes it 2 bonus points in the opening 2 rounds when he tipped Western Sydney to win away at Adelaide. The easiest match to tip was Sydney FC beating Central Coast at home which only George95 got incorrect.
  • N-Bomb makes it back-to-back weekly wins when he went 4/5, only getting the Melbourne derby wrong. Howie72 makes it back-to-back wooden spoons with 1/5 and is joined this week by wwe84 and Sypher.
  • It appears the tipping season may be decided after just 2 rounds as N-Bomb jumps out to a 5 point lead, to leave everyone else fighting for second place. Can he stay the whole season out front?. Howie72 and Shadowmyst2004 remain at the bottom of the table.

  • Melbourne City came from behind twice but could not do it a third time as an Andy Keogh hat-trick saw the points head back to Perth, the first time they have beaten Melbourne City at AAMI Park in the last 8 matches. Brisbane traveled to Central Coast and left with a 6th straight win over the Mariners who could not register a shot on target despite dominating possession. Central Coast have conceded a goal in each of their last 32 A-League games and are winless in the last 13. Adelaide looked to have earned a draw at home to Melbourne Victory but Marco Rojas had other ideas as he scored in the third minute of stoppage time to break Adelaide hearts. A refereeing howler stopped Wellington Phoenix taking the lead when an incorrect offside call robbed them of a goal, it came back to haunt them as Sydney scored two minutes into stoppage time to snatch the win and remain unbeaten. Western Sydney's first match in their new home stadium looked to be going to script as they went into halftime with a 2-0 lead over Newcastle only for the Jets to write the final twist as the scored two times in the final 10 minutes to earn a draw.
  • Shadowmyst was running on default fuel this week.
  • We had another good A-League round this time as we went 27/65 or 41.53% but are still awaiting out first positive week with more right than wrong.
  • For the 3rd week in a row a bonus point is handed out, George95 being the beneficiary when he was the only one to tip Perth to win away at Melbourne City. The easiest match to tip was Brisbane Roar beating Central Coast Mariners away which 11 of us got correct.
  • N-Bomb makes it a hat-trick of weekly wins to begin the season when he went 3/5 along with Sypher, illiniman14 and George95. Howie72 makes it a hat-trick of wooden spoons to begin the season when he went 1/5 along with wwe84 and FussBudget.
  • No one made a dent in N-Bomb's big early season lead as he maintains a 5 point buffer, the biggest change was George95 taking over 2nd place by himself thanks to the bonus point. Can he stay the whole season out front?. Howie72 and Shadowmyst2004 remain at the bottom of the table.

I'll be looking for the first 100░ day in December in Virginia...I think that's more likely than 50% in A-League...lol

  • Melbourne City scored early in each half before Adelaide pulled a goal back with 25 minutes to go, Melbourne hung on to leave Adelaide winless after 4 games. Sydney maintained their perfect start to the season and recent dominance (now 9 wins and 2 draws in the last 11 meetings) over Newcastle with a comfortable win and kept a 5th consecutve clean sheet in doing so. Western Sydney scored in the second minute and should have sown the game up just after half time with a golden opportunity to score, Central Coast punished the Wanderers for their poor finishing to grab an equaliser. Perth travelled to Brisbane seeking their second win in the last 11 matches in the city but it was not to be, in an entertaining match it was Brisbane that scored in the last 15 minutes to grab the win. Melbourne Victory took advantage of a Wellington side reduced to 10 players by scoring 4 times in the last 20 minutes to embarrass the visitors 6-1, their 4th loss in 4 games to start the season.
  • Shadowmyst and MrFox were running on default fuel this week.
  • We did it, it only took 5 rounds before we achieved a strike rate of over 50% as we went 34/60 or 56.66%. We can end the season now as it may not get any better than this (plus I am off the bottom of the standings...). Dave, I hope you enjoyed the 100░ day in December in Virginia.
  • Four rounds and four bonus points as George95 picks up his second with a solo tip, picking Central Coast to earn a draw away to Western Sydney. The easiest matches to tip were both of the Melbourne wins which 10 of us got right for each match.
  • The weekly win went to paper_aero, Sypher and ozzz2002 with 4/5 meaning N-Bomb missed out for the first time this season. ElfTwinkle picked up the wooden spoon with 1/5 meaning Howie72 failed in a bid for four consecutive spoons.
  • N-Bomb maintains a comfortable lead out front though George95 has reduced it to 4 points. Can he stay the whole season out front?. With Shadowmyst continuing to be a no show, Howie72 has finally climbed off the bottom of the ladder.

  • Brisbane hosted Melbourne City and an early goal was all they needed to edge the visitors and remain unbeaten at home over the 10 matches, Melbourne City failed to register a shot on goal which makes it tricky to score. Newcastle Jets crashed and burned when they travelled to Wellington and went down 2-0, the first win of the season for the Phoenix and snapping a 6 game losing streak at home. Sydney conceded their first goal of the season and went into halftime 1-0 down to Melbourne Victory but a second half revival saw them take the win and remain perfect for the season. Adelaide could not do what Wellington did and record their first win of the season as Central Coast inflicted more pain on them, in more ways than one. Not only did Adelaide lose but it was a Connor Pain rocket that ended up being the winning goal. If you turned up to the NIB Stadium in Perth a few minutes late you would have missed a frantic opening as both the home side and Western Sydney scored inside 5 minutes. They both scored again in the second half to share the spoils and leave Perth undeafeated in their last 9 home games.
  • Shadowmyst was running on default fuel this week.
  • We proved last week was an exception to the rule as we struggled once again in going 23/65 or 35.38%. I am still not sure why it is so difficult to tip the A-League but we start each season full of hope...
  • Another round goes by and another bonus point is awarded, once again for George95's solo tip which makes it a hat-trick of bonus points for him. This time he was the only one to pick Central Coast's win away to Adelaide. The easiest match to tip was Sydney's home win over Melbourne Victory which 10 of us got right.
  • Three weekly winners this time with wwe84, FussBudget and ghto4 all picking up their first weekly win in going 3/5. It had to happen again, a goose egg of 0/5 going to MrFox who earns his first spoon of the season.
  • N-Bomb maintains his lead out front though George95 has reduced it to again, this time halving it to 2 points. Can he stay the whole season out front?. With Shadowmyst continuing to be a no show, Howie72 remains botton of the active players but is now just a point behind MrFox and ElfTwinkle.

  • Adelaide looked to have secured a point at home to Newcastle when the Jets goalkeeper tried to punch the ball clear but only succeeded in putting it into his own net, his blushes were spared when a team mate scored the winner with virtualy the ast kick of the macth to secure a valuable Newcastle win. A missed penalty came back to haunt Western Sydney as Wellington came back from 2-0 down to snatch a thrilling 2-2 draw. In a typically fiery Melbourne derby where 10 yellow cards were handed out by the referee it was Victorr that came out on top over City to move into second place in the standings. Perth scored after 20 minutes at home to Sydney but the lead was to last for just 90 seconds, three second half Sydney goals completed the win for the table toppers. Brisbane roared into third place in the table after a hard fought win at Central Coast.
  • MrFox and illiniman14 were both running on defaut fuel this week.
  • It was a useful tipping week as we went 23 for 55 or a 41.81% strike rate. The hardest match to tip was Melbourne Victory's win "away" at Melbourne City which was tipped solo by N-Bomb thus earning himself a bonus point. Both Melbourne teams have the same home ground. The easiest match to tip was Brisbane's win at Central Coast where wwe84 was the only one not to predict this.
  • A handful of weekly wins were handed out when George95, gtho4, paper_aero, N-Bomb and ElfTwinkle all went 3/5. The wooden spoon went to wwe84 who went back to back with 0/5.
  • With the top four all getting a weekly win the only change out front was N-Bomb's bonus point increasing his lead to 2 points. He still remains out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season. MrFox continues to bring up the rear with many defaults.

  • Brisbane and Western Sydney cancelled each other out in drawing 1-1 in Brisbane on a playing surface that almost resembled the surface of the moon thanks to a recent Coldplay concert. Newcastle and Wellington could not be seperated either as the home team twice came from a goal down to equalise and deny Wellington the full 3 points. Sydney travelled to Adelaide and dominated the home team to leave with a comprehensive 4-0 win and remain unbeaten in the league after 12 matches. In a game that had everything with drama right to the end it somehow ended all level between Melbourne City and Perth. The home team were awarded 3 penalties but the Perth goalkeeper saved 2 of them including one in the final minute to secure the draw. Each team also had a player sent off in the final few minutes. It was a lot more comfortable for Melbourne Victory as they outclassed Central Coast to close within 7 points of Sydney with a game in hand, the Mariners have now lost 4 in a row.
  • MrFox was running on defaut fuel this week.
  • It was a slightly better tipping week as we went 26 for 60 or a 43.33% strike rate. We all tipped Melbourne Victory to beat Central Coast at home but no one predicted the entertinment and drama that saw Perth draw with Melbourne City in Melbourne.
  • Only a single weekly winner with ElfTwinkle going 4/5, only missing out on a perfect round thanks to Perth's 2 penalty saves. The wooden spoon went to wwe84 who makes it a hattrick with 1/5.
  • The only change out front is N-Bomb increasing his lead to 3 points while ElfTwinkle surges up the standings a little more to jump into a tie for 5th. N-Bomb still remains out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season. MrFox continues to bring up the rear with many defaults.

  • Another game for Sydney, another win and another clean sheet as they beat Brisbane at home to remain unbeaten after 3 matches despite palying the last 30 minutes with just 10 players after a sending off. A Melbourne City penalty in the 90th minutes denied Central Coast a 4th straight New Year's Eve win but the draw broke the run of 4 successive defeats to give them a litte more confidence heading into 2017. For the second week in a row, Perth travelled across Australlia to earn a draw though this one was not as action-packed as last week, Western Sydney are the draw specialists with this being their 8th in 13 matches this season. The wet in windy conditions in Wellington turned their match aganst Adelaide into lacklustre affair though it was Adelaide desperately defending in stoppage time to deny the home side a winning goal. The Albanian, Besart Berisha became the A-League's leading goal scorer as his penalty opened the scoring for Melbourne Victory to take his tally to 91, Melbourne did not look back as they put 4 past Newcastle to gain another valuable win and keep a little pressure on Sydney.
  • MrFox was running on defaut fuel this week.
  • Once again we tipped more correctly than wrong as we went 33/60 or a 55% strike rate. We all tipped Melbourne Victory to beat Newcastle at home. The hardest match to tip was Central Coast's home draw with Melbourne City where only illiniman14 and FussBudget managed to pull this result out of the hat. For the second week in a row we had 3 draws which ruined many a tipping round.
  • Three weekly winners this round as 3 of the 4 bottom regular tippers went 4/5, namely wwe84 who stopped a run of 3 spoons, ozzz2002 and illiniman14. We had to find extra wooden spoons as 6 of us took one home with 2/5, the lucky recipients being gtho4, paper_aero, srini701, Sypher, N-Bomb and Howie72. This is the first for paper_aero leaving only 12th place illiniman14 without a spoon which has me wndering how someone at the bottom of the standings have no spoons? On the other hand, it is only srini701 who has not picked up a weekly win yet.
  • The only change out front is George95 drawing level with paper_aero for second place while N-Bomb keeps his 3 point lead. N-Bomb still remains out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season. Of the regular tippers, illiniman14 has drawn level at the bottom with srini701.

  • Wellington Phoenix took the lead against Perth when Roy Krishna scored the 4000th A-League goal but the home side replied with two of their own to secure the win. The game was not without controversy with Krishna being sent off and Perth's Andy Keogh extremely lucky not to join him. Melbourne City's manager resigned during the week and the interim manager guided them to a win over Western Sydney who had a player sent off in the 30th minute. The big upset of the round was Newcastle travelling to Brisbane and ending the home team's 13 match unbeaten home streak with an 84th minute winnner. Melbourne Victory were too good for Adelaide with a goal on each half being more than enough, the second coming just after the home team were denied an equaliser by the crossbar. Sydney appeared to be cruising to victory at Central Coast when a goal either side of halftime took them to a 2-0 lead only for the home team to score twice themselves and miss a penalty as well. Sydney scored a controversial winner just a minute after Central Coast equalised, the player who scored was offside but the goal stood and Sydney remain unbeaten.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • After many years we seem to be starting to figure out the A-League as we once again got more right than wrong in going 35/60 or a 58.33% strike rate. Sydney's win at Central Coast was the easiest match to tip thanks to the contentious winner with just ElfTwinkle failing to pick the result. The hardest match to tip was Newcastle's away win at Brisbane which no one got correct. After 6 draws in the last 10 matches there were none this round.
  • Three weekly winners this round as FussBudget, ozzz2002 and srini701 all went 4/5. It was particularly pleasing for srini701 as it was his first this season so fills in the Hall of Fame column other then regular defaulter MrFox. ElfTwinkle decided to be kind to the wooden sppon makers as she picked 3 draws and ended up with 1/5 and a solo spoon.
  • No change out front as the first three all went 3/5 meaning N-Bomb keeps his 3 point lead. N-Bomb still remains out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season. Of the regular tippers, illiniman14 has solo 12th but it is very tight at the bottom of the ladder.

  • In the heat of Adelaide it was visiting Melbourne City that took an early lead only for Adelaide to equalise 5 minutes later and with the match looking like being a draw it was the home team that scored a late winner for the round's first upset. Melbourne Victory raced out to a 3-0 lead over Brisbane within the first 30 minutes and it was just enough as the Roar brought it back to 3-2 at halftime. No goals in the second half despite Melbourne playing most of it with 10 men after a red card. It was wet and windy in Wellington as the home side dominated but could only put one goal past the Central Coast goalkeeper which was enough for a valuable win. The Sydney derby was a game for the goalkeepers as some world class saves left the derby goalless for the first time, leaving Sydney unbeaten in the league this season. In a thriller in Newcastle it finished all square as the Jets and visiting Perth both lead at one stage only for it to finish 2-2.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • We dropped back below the 50% mark this week in going 27/60 or a 45% strike rate. Wellington's win over Central Coast was the easiest match to tip but only 9 of us got this correct. The hardest match to tip was Sydney's home draw with Western Sydney where only FussBudget somehow managed to predict this and earned himself a bonus point in the process.
  • A hattrick of weekly wins for ozzz2002 as he went 3/5 along with paper_aero, illiniman14, Howie72 and N-Bomb. ElfTwinkle makes it back-to-back wooden spoons and is joined by wwe84 in going 1/6.
  • The only change out front is George95 dropping back into solo third place, the weekly wins for N-Bomb and paper_aero leaves N-Bomb keeping his 3 point lead. N-Bomb remains out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season? Of the regular tippers, illiniman14 has caught up with wwe84 and srini701 with these three being just 1 point behind ElfTwinkle and Howie72.
