FunTrivia.com Premiership
2021-22 TIPPING COMPETITION
FT Premier League


This year's FT-PL comp will be the 19th edition of this head-to-head tipping comp. For those of us who are unfamiliar with this comp, it's a round-robin league system where everybody plays everybody else twice (aka home and away) .. everyone picks the 10 weekly games played in the FA Premier League. The winner of each match receives 3 points and it's one point each for a draw .. aka if you pick 8/10 and your opponent picks 6/10, you win 8-6 and collect 3 pts. Whoever has the most pts at the end of the season is the winner! Goal Difference will be used to split dead-heats (then HoF vs WS countback). If you fail to lodge picks you receive the wooden spoon score.

The season will run for 9 months from Saturday 14th August 2021 to Sunday 22nd May 2022. We don't play all 38 rounds in the FAPL as we run this comp with a maximum field of 18 runners over 34 FT-PL rounds: we omit four rounds, being week one, the weekends with the FA Cup quarter-finals and semi-finals, plus the weekend with the League Cup Final.

Unlike other comps in here, where you may either sign-in or simply post your picks in the first tipping thread, you must sign-in, here in this thread, to enter this comp, so that the weekly head-to-head fixtures can be put together. If less than 18 sign-up, that's the field. In the unlikely event that more than 18 apply, see sequence [A] to [E] in here for the culling procedure.

To allow time for the weekly schedule of who's-playing-who to be put together and then posted in here into weekly tipping threads, the deadline for signing-up is 12 midnight FT time on Friday 6th 13th August. There's a grace period of two or three hours, but please don't push your luck past that. Creating the weekly round-robin schedule does take time; and we have just two weeks between closure of sign-ups and the start of the comp.

The defending titleholder is srini701, who won it from N-Bomb and Dizart (they dead-heated for second place, with N-Bomb winning silver on GD). Sypher finished in 4th place. For a complete list of all the medallists in each of the 18 previous comps: click on the HoF link in the top LH corner. Ladies and gentlemen, the clock is ticking..
please sign-in, if you'd like to have a go!


If we have a field of 16 we play 30 FT-PL rounds by omitting another four: being four over the NY to create a mid-winter mini-break. If we have 14 runners we delete three mid-week rounds plus Sat 19 Dec (which extends the mid-winter break to one month). Please note that if we have an odd number of participants there will be a "bye" each week. The bye will be scored as the average of all other players ignoring fractions e.g. if you're drawn "to play" the bye and the average of all other players is 5¾ (i.e. excluding your picks) then the bye will score 5/10. If we do start with a bye it will allow a late starter to join the comp. He or she will replace the bye and enter the comp using the bye's pts so far. This will only be available until the end of August.

I'd like to give Llynfi a run for the wooden spoon. I assume that if we know ahead of time that we will be away from the computer for several days we can submit our picks in advance.

yep, the entire season's tipping threads will be up within a week of the comp starting. Click on the FT-PL link near the top RH corner of this page and you'll see what happened last year and when things happened. That link will point to this year's comp when it starts.

Welcome aboard!

We've got 11 runners so far but we're looking for a few more. Sign-up will be left open for another
week to Fri 13th Aug, to see if we can entice a few more .. and the FT-PL comp will now start on
either Sat 21st Aug or Sat 28th Aug. It looks like this year will see a comp with 14 or 16 runners.

The comp will be two round robins for a 26 round comp (14 runners) or two RRs for a 30 round
comp (16 runners). If we have an odd number all of us will "play against" the Bye to keep it as
an even-numbered comp with everyone playing each week.


If you're going away in August on holidays and want to lodge tips in advance, you can use the FAPL tipping threads. I'll copy them over into the FT-PL threads when they've been put together and posted, for the week(s) the FT-PL is running.

As long as I can remember to tip, I will play. As for trying to take the Wooden Spoon, I'm Spoon holder two years running (or two of the last three), so you have a challenge.

Sign-up has been extended for another week to Fri 13th Aug .. and it looks like the FT-PL comp will
now start on Sat 21st Aug with 16 runners.

The comp will run over 30 rounds with 16 runners. If we end up with an odd number (i.e. only 15 sign-
up in time) all of us will "play against" the Bye to keep it even-numbered with everyone playing each
week. The Bye will be in place, and available for a 16th to sign-in, until the FIFA break (i.e. the 16th
can take the Bye at any time before Week 3). The start of the comp will look like this:
    FT-PL <1> Sat 21 Aug
    FT-PL <2> Sat 28 Aug
    FT-PL <3> Sat 11 Sep
    FT-PL <4> Sat 18 Sep
    FT-PL <5> Sat 25 Sep
    FT-PL <6> Sat 2 Oct
    FT-PL <7> Sat 16 Oct
    FT-PL <8> Sat 23 Oct
If you're going away in August on holidays and want to lodge tips in advance, you can use the FAPL tipping threads. I'll copy them over into the FT-PL threads when they've been put together and posted, for the week(s) the FT-PL is running.

    One more and the field of 16 is complete.

The first round's tipping thread, Sat 21 Aug, will be posted in the next few days, giving all
of us a fortnight or so to lodge our first picks (the 16th player is a bye until the 16th sign-in
happens).

The 30 rounds will be split evenly; 15 rounds this year before NYE and 15 rounds next year
(bar one). There are no mid-week rounds in the FT-PL comp, all are weekend rounds:
The FAPL rounds x8 removed to give us 30 for the FT-PL comp are: the four mid-week
rounds, the two around NYE, weekends of FA Cup quarters and semis, plus week one.

We've had a full complement of 20 runners over the entire season of 38 wks just once, in the 2nd edition of the FT-PL tipping comp way back in season 2004-05. Three years ago we fell from 18 runners over 34 weeks back to 16 runners over 30 wks (we gained zero newbies and lost two players: FussBudget & illiniman14). The year after we again had 16 runners for a 30 wk season: ElfTwinkle was a no show & KrivoyRog returned after three seasons of R&R. Last year we were down to 14 runners over 26 weeks: KrivoyRog, PaulE and toocool4u were no shows and Lynfi was the new kid on the block.

This year we're back to 16 runners over 30 weeks: toocool4u returns after a year's R&R and andymuenz is the newbie. Welcome aboard!

This year's FT Premier League is the 19th edition of this head-to-head league style round robin "home and away" comp; 12 of the 16 runners in this year's comp have played in each of the last seven, aka a retention rate of 12 players year-in-year-out for seven straight years. We've had a total of 24 different players participate over the last eight seasons. The smallest FT-PL field was the 12 runners in the very first comp, 18 years ago in 2003-04.

This year's FT-PL comp starts with five wins (the last three have had six winners in Round One), whch means we again have a crowd at the top of the pile.

The defending titleholder srini701 begins his defence with a loss to George95, the runner-up N-Bomb won his game against the nkotb, andymuenz, and third placed Dizart starts with a draw against toocool4u. N-Bomb has won four of the last seven comps (PaulE won in 2016 and paper_aero in 2018). That's one week down. We have 29 to go.
