  • Melbourne City peppered the Central Coast goal with 26 shots but could only put 2 into the back of the net. It was enough for them to beat the Mariners who had their goal scorer sent off in the 23rd minute and from then on there was only one team in it. It took 2 goals in 3 second half minutes for Sydney to ease past Adelaide and remain unbeaten in the league this season. Once again Wellington succumbed to a late goal as Brisbane scored the only goal in the 87th minute to break their 3 game losing streak. Perth were trailling Melbourne Victory after an hour but 2 goals in the last 30 minutes saw the home team overcome Melbourne and drive a dagger into the Victory's premiership hopes as they are now 8 points behind Sydney. It took until round 16 but Western Sydney finally got their first home win of the season when cruising past Newcastle.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • We are back above the 50% mark this week in going 33/60 for a 55% strike rate, long gone are the regular 20 to 25% success rate which you could call a failure, have I spoken too soon? We all managed to predict unbeaten Sydney would beat bottom of the table Adelaide at home. The hardest match to tip was Perth's home home win over Melbourne Victory where only N-Bomb managed to predict this and earned himself a bonus point in the process.
  • N-Bomb earned himself a second bonus point this week when he went perfect, giving himself an 8th weekly win in 16 rounds with 5/5. ElfTwinkle makes it back-to-back-to-back wooden spoons when tipping 1/5.
  • N-Bomb increases his lead to 7 points (the biggest lead yet) over paper_aero and we can just about call the victory for N-Bomb now, paper_aero increases his buffer over third to 2 points. FussBudget has mad things more interesting for the podium spots as he draws level with George95 for third place. N-Bomb remains out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season? Of the regular tippers, we have 4 of us all just 1 point behind Howie72 at the bottom, this looks to be the most exciting race of the season.

  • Australia Day saw more than 30000 fans watch the top 2 teams, Melbourne Victory and Sydney, battle and it did not disappoint with 3 goals, a come-from-behind win, 24 shots at goal, 6 yellow cards and one red card. In the end it was Sydney who come out on top and stretched their lead in the standings. It was just as bad for the other Melbourne team as 69% possesion and a 2 to 1 shot ratio was not enough to overcome Newcastle, wasteful Melbourne finishing and a resolute Newcastle defense saw the Jets record a gutsy win. Central Coast rode their luck in the first half against Perth and somehow went to the break goalless, the second half was different as 2 early goals saw the Mariners run out victors. Brisbane's home game against Western Sydney looked destined for a draw until the Wanderers had a player sent off in the 81st minute and Brisbane took advantage but left it late to get the winner - in the third minute of stoppage time. In the stifling heat of Adelaide it was the home team that coped the best as they dominated possesion and shots at goal against Wellington but it finished all square as the visitors ran out of steam.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • ozzz2002, Sypher and George95 all missed the Melbourne Victory vs Sydney match due to late tips.
  • I spoke too soon last round as we struggled to get just 13/57 for a strike rate of 22.8%, over half of these came from Brisbane's late home win over Western Sydney. Two solo tip bonus points were handed out this week, one to wwe84 for predicting Newcastle to beat Melbourne City and the other to N-Bomb (who does not really need it) for tipping Central Coast to beat Perth.
  • A poor 2/5 was enough to earn paper_aero and srini701 the weekly win while ElfTwinkle made it back-to-back-to-back-to-back wooden spoons with an even poorer 0/5.
  • With the bonus point, N-Bomb maintains his 7 point lead over paper_aero while paper_aero increases his buffer over George95 and FussBudget to 3 points. N-Bomb remains out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season? Of the regular tippers, ElfTwinkle's 4th consecutive wooden spoon sees her drop to the bottom but still very little in it.

  • Some top goalkeeping from both sides saw Brisbane and Sydney battle to a goalless draw in an entertaining match at Brisbane to keep Sydney unbeaten in the league this season. Wellington's struggles continued as they went down at home to an impressive Western Sydney despite having the majority of possession, a red card to Shane Smeltz not helping. The next edition of the Melbourne derby was just as entertaining with a missed penalty, late drama, controversay, 11 yellow cards and one red card. It was a reasonably scrappy first half but the same cannot be said for the second half, Melbourne Victory had a penalty saved and went behind to Melbourne City shortly after. The final 6 minutes of regular time saw Melbourne Victory score twice to take the win with the controversy coming with the referee overruling the linesman's flagging for offside. Melbourne City's Tim Cahill was sent off for dissent after arguing too match about the goal. Perth and Newcastle scored 5 times between them but it was the visiting Jets that forget to score for the third time and went down 3-2 to Perth. Central Coast took their home game against Adelaide to Canberra and it worked out well for them as they took all 3 points.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • It was slightly better this week as we went 21/60 or 35% helped no end by 11 of us tipping Perth to beat Newcastle, only illiniman14 being unsuccessful. The hardest match to get right was Western Sydney's win away to Wellington where only one of us managed to do so and earning a bonus point in the process. You will not be surprised to learn it was N-Bomb who now has 7 of the 15 bonus points this season.
  • The weekly win went to N-Bomb and Howie72 who both went 3/5 while ElfTwinkle made it back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back wooden spoons, this week she was joined by wwe84, Sypher, ozzz2002 and FussBudget as they all went 1/5. ElfTwinkle still has a long way to go to reach ozzz2002's record of 9 in a row.
  • With the bonus point and weekly win, N-Bomb increases his lead over paper_aero to 9 points while FussBudget drops off the podium. N-Bomb has been out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season? Of the regular tippers, ElfTwinkle's 5th consecutive wooden spoon sees her open up a 2 point gap to illiniman14 and wwe84.

  • It was business as usual for Sydney as they extended their unbeaten start to the season when brushing aside Wellington at home, scoring their first goal in the 3rd minute and never looking troubled. Adelaide were demolished at home by a rampant Perth side, a delay to kick-off by an hour due to soaring temperatures did nothing to dampen the Glory as they put 5 past the home team and just as important, kept only their second clean sheet of the season. Newcastle's Saturday match against Melbourne Victory was postponed to Monday due to the heatwave and neither team were able to break the stalemate despite 27 shots at goal. Melbourne City travelled to Brisbane without 9 players due to injury and suspension and it showed as they went to the break 2-0 down. However, no one told Melbourne they were big underdogs as they staged a remarkable comeback to leave the scores level at 2-2 when the final whistle was blown. Dylan Pierias, a Melbourne City debutant, became the first player born in the 2000's to play in the A-League. Central Coast made it 3 wins in a row when they travelled to Western Sydney and left with a 2-0 victory.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • FussBudget, George95 and Sypher all missed the Sydney vs Wellington match due to late tips.
  • It was also business as usual for us this week as we went 19/57 or 33% thanks in a large part to Sydney beating Wellington which gave us 9 correct tips, only the late tippers possiby stopping it from being a perfect 12. The hardest match to get right was Central Coast willing away to Western Sydney which none of us got, the closest ozzz2002 who tipped a draw.
  • The bottom 3 of the regular tippers all went 3/5 to earn a weekly win, namely wwe84, illiniman14 and ElfTwinkle. Sypher received the solo spoon when going 0/4. ElfTwinkle ends her wooden spoon streak at 5.
  • N-Bomb sees his lead over paper_aero drop to 8 points with the top 6 all retain their position. N-Bomb has been out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season? Of the regular tippers, ElfTwinkle remains 2 points behind a group of 5.

  • Adelaide picked up their third win of the season when edging past Newcastle 1-0, a second half penalty was enough after their goalkeeper pulled off a stunning save while colliding heavily with the post, he was able to carry on much to the delight of the home fans. Wellington dominated the first 20 minutes against Melbourne City and should have been well ahead but from then on it was all Melbourne, an own goal turning the match in their favour. At the time of the own goal Wellington had had 8 shots on goal to none. I hope everyone is sitting down as it finally happened.....Sydney lost and it was in the Sydney derby to their most hated rivals, Western Sydney, to make it so much worse for them and their fans. For the second week in a row, Brisbane was involved in a 2 all draw away from home, this time letting a lead slip twice to Perth. Central Coast failed in their bid for a fourth consecutive win as they went down at home to Melbourne Victory.
  • MrFox and George95 were running on default fuel this week.
  • It was a bit better for us this week though not yet back to half right/half wrong as we went 25/55 or 45.45%. The easiest match to get right was Melbourne Victory's win at Central Coast where only FussBudget failed with this. The hardest match to get right was Western Sydney's win over Sydney in the Sydney derby where no one got it right.
  • The Sydney derby cost ozzz2002 a chance of a perfect round as he got every other game right in going 4/5 for the weekly win. Three wooden spoons were handed out to wwe84, illiniman14 and Howie72 who all went 1/5. This is the first spoon for illiniman14 so fills up this column for the regilar tippers.
  • N-Bomb maintains his 8 point lead over paper_aero drop while FussBudget leaps over a defaulting George95 for the third podium spot. N-Bomb has been out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season? Of the regular tippers, ElfTwinkle closes up to just 1 point behind a group of 3.

  • It is difficult to beat Sydney without trying to do so with a player short for over half of the match. Melbourne City found this out the hard way when having a player sent off in the 39th minute with the score at 1-1. Sydney took full advantage in the second half to score two more goals. Newcastle and Central Coast played out a 6th consecutive draw at McDonald Jones Stadium when a second half Mariners strike cancelled out the home team's half-time lead, Newcastle wasted their chance of moving into the top 6. Two second half goals were enough for Melbourne Victory to account for Adelaide and move withn 8 points of Sydney at the top of the table. Adelaide's 90th minute goal was just a consolation goal and they remain well behind at the bottom of the table. A goal in stoppage time at the end of both halves saw Perth comfortably beat Western Sydney and leap over the Wanderers into third place in the standings. Wellington had only beaten Brisbane away once in the last 13 matches but it was all to change as they deservedly won 2-1 to move within 2 points of the 6th play-off spot.
  • MrFox and illiniman14 were running on default fuel this week.
  • We went one correct tip better this week than last week when going 26/55 or 47.27%. The easiest match to get right was Melbourne Victory's win at home to Adelaide where only Sypher went for the upset. The hardest match to get right was Wellington's upset win away to Brisbane where no one got this, Howie72 was the only won not to predict a Brisbane win but even he did not give Wellington a chance of winning.
  • Wellington Phoenix cost ozzz2002 a chance of a perfect round as he got every other game right in going 4/5 for the weekly win for the second week in a row. Two wooden spoons were handed out this week to gtho4 and Sypher who both went 1/5.
  • N-Bomb maintains his 8 point lead over paper_aero drop while George95 once again joins FussBudget on the podium. N-Bomb has been out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season? Of the regular tippers, illiniman14 with his default score joins ElfTwinkle at the bottom.

  • Newcastle took an early lead at home to Brisbane with a penalty but things took a turn for the worse with the sending off of their stand-in captain in the 31st minute and the sending to the stands of their coach for protesting too much. Brisbane took full advantage in the second half with 3 goals to move back into the top 4. Wellington let slip two 2 goal leads over Perth to emerge from the distance derby with a 3-3 draw where the win would have seen them back into the 6th and final play-off spot. The league's two lowest scoring teams battled it out and it was Western Sydney that dominated Adelaide but the battle ended in a goalless stalemate. Melbourne City looked good when jumping out to a 2 goal lead away to Central Coast but a goal either side of half-time saw the home side level it up. The Central Coast goalkeeper then failed to clear an underhit backpass and to compound the error dragged down the Melbourne player who was clear through on goal and got himself sent off, the resulting penalty turned out to be the winning goal. Sydney has one hand firmly clasped on the Premier's Plate and the second hand with a light grip as they accounted for second place Melbourne Victory to move 11 points clear with just 5 rounds to go.
  • MrFox and illiniman14 were running on default fuel this week.
  • We finally got back to more right than wrong when we went 28/55 or 50.90%. The easiest match to get right was Sydney's win at home to Melbourne Victory where 9 of us tipped this. Three matches were the hardest to predict as 4 people got right each of Brisbane's win and the two draws.
  • Sypher is this round's weekly winner as he went 4/5, only missing Central Coast's loss to Melbourne City. Back-to-back wooden wooden spoons for gtho4 as he went 1/5.
  • N-Bomb maintains his 8 point lead over paper_aero while George95 moves into third by himself, knocking FussBudget back to a tie for 4th with a charging ozzz2002 though just 1 point behind. Just how much ozzz2002 will be ruing his early season form, only he will know having gone 11/15 in the last 3 weeks. N-Bomb has been out front for the entire competition so far, will it continue through the season? The answer will be yes as paper_aero needs to gain almost 2 points per round from here. The big battle will be for the third podium spot with 1 point seperating the aforementioned trio, gtho4's challenge looks to have petered out with his back-to-back spoons. Of the regular tippers, illiniman14's second consecutive default score sees him drop 1 point behind ElfTwinkle at the bottom.

  • An early goal was enough for Sydney to overcome Central Coast and get to within one win of securing the Premiers Plate with the Mariners only managing one shot on target in reply. Melbourne Victory had not beaten Perth in their last 8 encounters and it looked like it may be 9 when Perth scored after 5 minutes but Melbourne turned it around to put 4 past the Glory and keep their mathematical hopes of overtaking Sydney alive. Melbourne City also scored 4 against Newcastle to make it 8 goals to Melbourne sides at the same stadium in consecutive matches. The controversy of the round was the sending off of the Brisbane goal keeper 6 minutes into stoppage time for an albow to the head of an Adelaide player as he was swinging his arms around while holding the ball as he was being interfered with and fouled. The resulting penalty handed the win to Adelaide. Wellington had a chance to lead over Western Sydney into the 6th and final play-off spot but they never looked likely as the Wanderers jumped out to an early lead and never looked back.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • We had a very good round when tippng 40/60 or 66.66%. We all tipped Sydney's home win over Central Coast correctly while Sypher, ozzz2002 and N-Bomb were the only ones to predict the last minute penalty to give Adelaide the victory over Brisbane.
  • N-Bomb continues to rub it in as he goes perfect with 5/5 along with ozzz2002 this round and they both earn themselves a bonus point. ElfTwinkle and wwe84 take home spoons this week with 2/5.
  • N-Bomb increases his lead to 10 points over paper_aero while ozzz2002 leaps over George95 for third, opening up a 2 point gap with his perfect round. Just how much ozzz2002 will be ruing his early season form, only he will know having gone 11/15 in the last 3 weeks. N-Bomb has been out front for the entire competition so far, it will through the season unless disaster strikes. The big battle will be for the third podium spot with 3 points seperating ozzz2002, George95 and FusBudget. Of the regular tippers, illiniman14's has drawn level again with ElfTwinkle at the bottom.

  • After going behind in the 3rd minute at home to Melbourne City it was all Brendon Santalab as he scored a hattrick to take Western Sydney within sight of the 6th and final play-off spot. Adelaide secured back-to-back wins for the first time this season when they came from behind to beat Central Coast and in doing so, leapt over their hosts to climb off the bottom of the ladder. Melbourne Victory had scored 48 goals before this round and thanks to Football Australia's reluctance to take a break for international windows they lost their 4 top scorers and it showed as they went down 1-0 away to Brisbane, in doing so handed Sydney the Premiers Plate. Wellington Phoenix also suffered with 6 players on international duty but surprisingly it did not show in the scoreline as they thrashed Newcastle 5-0 despite the stats suggesting the game was very even. Sydney celebrated their Premiers Plate success with a dominant 3-0 win away to a lucklustre Perth.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • We had an A-League decent round when tippng 28/60 or 46.66% though no games were unanimous, 9 of us picking Sydney to win in Perth was the closest. On the flip side, 2 games were tipped by just 3 of us being Western Sydney and Adelaide wins.
  • N-Bomb thought his 10 point lead was not big enough so he went out and got back-to-back perfect rounds with another 5/5, earning himself a 9th (out of 18) bonus point. ElfTwinkle also went back-to-back but with wooden spoons when she tipped 1/5.
  • N-Bomb increases his lead to 14 points over paper_aero with just 3 rounds left. The remainder of the top 6 remains the same as they all went 2/5. N-Bomb has been out front for the entire competition so far and everyone else has been waving the white flag for a while. The big battle will be for the third podium spot with 3 points seperating ozzz2002, George95 and FusBudget. Of the regular tippers, ElfTwinkle has dropped 1 point behind illiniman14 at the bottom.

  • Adelaide defender, Dylan McGowan, produced the good and the bad against Perth as it finished all square at 1-1. He had one of the misses of the season before scoring and then giving away the penalty that levelled the scores up. Western Sydney made it 3 wins in a row as they cruised past Newcastle and all but sewed up a play-off position. Sydney's march to grand final success rolled merrily on as they easily accounted for Melbourne City and earned yet another clean sheet. They have only conceded 11 goals in 25 games and are now just 3 points away from Brisbane's all-time A-League points record of 65. Melbourne Victory hosted the 1500th A-League match but it was one for the Wellington Phoenix to remember as the visitors stunned their hosts with a 3-0 victory. Central Coast scored early in the second half at Brisbane to take the lead but Brisbane came roaring back to score 5 goals of their own and leave the Mariners at the bottom of the standings.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • A good tipping round this week when we went 33/60 or 55% thanks to us all tipping the Sydney and Brisbanes wins correctly. On the other hand, no one saw Wellington shocking second place Melbourne Victory away, the closest were ElfTwinkle and Sypher who both predicted draws.
  • Two weekly winners this round as both wwe84 and paper_aero went 4/5. A handful of spoons were awarded with Howie72, illiniman14, FussBudget, N-Bomb and Sypher all going an A-Leagie respectable 2/5.
  • N-Bomb sees his lead drop to 12 points but the only way he can now lose with just 2 rounds left is to tip 0/5 in both weeks while paper_aero goes perfect to pick up 2 bonus points. N-Bomb will remain out front the entire season. The big battle will be for the third podium spot with 2 points seperating ozzz2002 and George95 though ozzz2002 currently has the better tie-break. Of the regular tippers, ElfTwinkle has once again caught up with illiniman14 at the bottom.

  • The penultinate round left some teams ecstatic, others disappointed and some needing to wait until the final round to see if they get a home play-off game. Melbourne City's top 4 hopes got a welcome boost as they edged Adelaide with a first half goal, the second half was more niggly as a total of 46 fouls were committed overall. A late goal kept Wellington's very slim hopes alive as they drew with Sydney at home though if Perth got any sort of positive result against Brisbane they would be extinguished, Sydney's goal came after a video review of potential handball inside the penalty area and the penalty was duly awarded. Sydney will now have to wait until the final week for a chance to beat the all time A-League points record. Western Sydney needed to beat Melbourne Victory to have any chance of a home play-off game but the game finished goalless despite Melbourne finishing with 10 players. Perth crushed Wellington's hopes as 2 goals in the last 25 minutes saw them beat Brisbane and confirm a play-off spot. The wooden spoon battle will go into the final week as Central Coast won for the first time in matches against Newcastle which left the Jets in last place.
  • MrFox was running on default fuel this week.
  • We almost achieved an even 50% strike rate but it was not to be as we went 29/60 or 48.33%, George95 stopped us from having an even split of 3/5 and 2/5. We all tipped Melbourne City to beat Adelaide but no one saw Wellington drawing with Sydney.
  • There were 6 weekly winners as srini701, wwe84, paper_aero, gtho4, Howie72 and illiniman14 all went 3/5. George95 received the solo spoon as he went 1/5.
  • N-Bomb sees his lead drop to 11 points but has officially wrapped up the title while paper_aero has second place also wrapped up and ozzz2002 has a 3 point lead over George93 for the final podium spot. N-Bomb will remain out front the entire season. Of the regular tippers, ElfTwinkle has once again dropped a point behind illiniman14 at the bottom.

  • It was a tight tussle and looked to be heading towards a stalemate until Besart Berisha scored the winning goal (and his 100th A-League goal) to earn the points for Melbourne Victory over Central Coast. Newcastle should have taken the lead away to Sydney approaching half-time but the penalty was fired over top of the crossbar and Sydney took full advantage in the second half to win 2-0, giving them the A-League points record and leaving Newcastle with the wooden spoon. Western Sydney rested a number of key players in the final league match away to Adelaide and it showed as the hosts took a 2-0 lead into the break but the Wanderers got back into it in the second 45 minutes and scored twice to leave the macth as a draw. Brisbane needed a draw at home to Wellington to secure a home week 1 play-off match but they found themselves 3-1 down at half-time before a 16 minute spell in the second half saw them score 3 times to take the win. The only consolation for the Phoenix was that they have scored for a record 11 games in a row. Perth needed a big win to host a pay-off match and the rushed from the gates to score inside the first 5 minutes and extended their lead to 4-1 in the second half to need just 1 more goal. However, in the crazy game that it was, Melbourne City brought back to 4-3 and it eventually ended 5-4 in Perth's favour.
  • MrFox and illiniman14 were running on default fuel this week.
  • We finish the 2016/17 season on a high which may bode well for next season as we went 36/55 or 65.45%. No matches were unanimous but both the Melbourne Victory and Sydney wins were tipped by 10 out of 11. The hardest match to predict was the Adelaide draw with Western Sydney where just 4 of us got this correct.
  • The last weekly winner is wwe84 who went perfect with 5/5 and earned a bonus point in the process. On the other hand, ozzz2002 and Sypher received the final spoons with 2/5.
  • N-Bomb finishes the season with a 12 point victory over paper_aero and has remained out front all season, only joined for 2 of the 27 weeks by George95. Despite a final week spoon, ozzz2002 keeps hold of third place over George95 but only by 1 point. Of the regular tippers, illiniman14 picked the wrong week to go default as ElfTwinkle leaps over him after going 4/5 thus illiniman14 takes home the wooden spoon.

  • As you can see from the awards, N-Bomb retains his title from last season and was even more dominant than 2015/2016. In the process he has been on top of the standings for 46 weeks in a row (the last 19 weeks in 2015/16 and all 27 in 20016/17. The rest of us will have to figure out a way to change it next season. Thus the season comes to an end, thank you to all that tipped and congratulations to the three that made it on the podium. We can all relax until the next edition of this "easy to tip" competition and N-Bomb's attempt to make it a threepeat. smile

ditto,
and that effort by N-Bomb has to be the most dominating performance by anyone in any tipping comp, since the 1st one 17 years ago!

I think I won one by double digits too once...in NFL.

edit to add: I looked, and I won NFL 2012 by 15, and wwe84 was ahead 17 with only one week to go on last year's MLB (he won by 12).

nah, I don't think any of them are as dominating.
I once won/was leading an NHL comp by 23 pts, and that doesn't count either.

A lead of 12 pts in the A-League, where there are five games per week, is equivalent to a 34 pt lead where there are 15 games per week. No one has got close to a 34 pt lead in any comp.

Bloody amazing smile Congrats, N-Bomb! Like Howie said, the rest of us will figure out a way before the next season...

@Howie: N-Bomb should always have a deadline where he misses the first game...that way he only scores for 4 games while the rest of us try and score off 5 ....think about it wink
