2019/2020 Predictor Championship.

Recommended Posts

Yes, I know it is far too early for predictions but I thought I'd create the thread as I'll be totalling how good everyone has done.

Also a few rules to make it easier for me counting results at the end of next season:-

  • Your first prediction is the prediction you will be marked on HOWEVER you can edit that prediction as long as it is before the first Ladbrokes Premiership fixture of the 2019/2020 season. (Please do not post a prediction twice.)
  • Predictions after the kick off of the first Ladbrokes Premiership fixture will not be marked.
  • Predictions edited after the kick off of the first Ladbrokes Premiership fixture will also not be marked.
  • Method of scoring will be 0 points for every spot on placed prediction and 1 point for every position off from your prediction given.
  • This will be 2019/2020 Ladbrokes Premiership predictions ONLY.
  • NOTE First Premiership fixture is 03/08/2019 unless it's brought forward for TV then it'll be 02/08/2019.

EXAMPLE:-

2018/2019 Prediction:-

  1. Celtic [0] (Correct guess so 0 Points)
  2. Rangers [0]
  3. Kilmarnock [0]
  4. Aberdeen [0]
  5. Heart of Midlothian [1] (1 point because Hearts finished 6th instead of 5th.)
  6. Hibernian [1]
  7. Motherwell [1]
  8. St Johnstone [1]
  9. Dundee [3] (3 points because Dundee finished 12th instead of 9th, which is 3 places off.)
  10. St Mirren [1]
  11. Hamilton Academical [1]
  12. Livingston [3] 

= 12 Points (The closer to 0 the better your prediction was)

 

Unfortunately the only prize is honour:-

2017/2018 Champion = @billyg

2018/2019 Joint Champions = @Im_Rodger, @Ya Bezzer!, @ATLIS & @Southside Hibee

2019/2020 Champion = ?

 

Note that the teams participating in the 2019/2020 Ladbrokes Premiership are:-

  • Aberdeen
  • Celtic
  • Hamilton Academical
  • Heart of Midlothian
  • Hibernian
  • Kilmarnock
  • Livingston
  • Motherwell
  • Rangers
  • Ross County
  • St Johnstone
  • St Mirren

 

Good Luck all.

Far too early for this, so I'll keep my powder dry just now.

Not convinced theres a clear relegation candidate. County will be better than Dundee next season (I'd expect theyd have rinsed them this season), and St Mirren and Hamilton both improving under new managers. Not sure about Livingston due to players they've lost, but theres absolutely no way I'm writing them off based on that, the way they play will always get them plenty of wins. Our form at points maybe points to us joining it, but TW is far too good a manager for that and the squad, which is being kept together, had us challenging for the top half all season.

I reserve the right to go back and edit this depending on how well teams do in the summer transfer window.

1. Celtic - Goes without saying.


2. Rangers - Much the same as this season. Will likely pick up a win or 2 against Celtic but dropping daft points elsewhere will cost them.


3. Hibs - Looked to be the form team in the league after Heckingbottom came in. Can see them pushing on next season.


4. Aberdeen - Always there or thereabouts and will run Hibs close for 3rd. Will have to settle for 4th despite Curtis Main scoring 20 goals.


5. Hearts - Another meh season but another top 6 finish.


6. Kilmarnock - Unlikely to have a repeat of this season after the departure of Clarke but will still have a decent season overall.


7. Motherwell - Failure to secure the 7th place trophy this season will drive us on next time round.


8. St. Johnstone - Will likely finish within a point or 2 of Motherwell. Not much to separate us over the past couple of years.


9. Ross County - A solid first season back for them.


10. Livingston - Will be closer to the relegation battle but should have enough to stay up.


11. St. Mirren - Still not convinced by Kearney who reminds me of Ian Baraclough. Baraclough also won the play-off but that just disguised the fact that he was still a shite manager.


12. Hamilton - Nothing against Hamilton but have a feeling that this may be the year their luck runs out.

I'll do an early round of predictions but update them as recruitment progresses but as of what we have now here is what I think

1. Celtic - Still the strongest side and over 38 games the cream will rise to the top

2. Rangers - Making slow progress, will see how the recruit but last summer was the first decent transfer window in the club's history so we will see if they can further improve

3. Hibernian - Was really impressed by their improvement under Heckingbottom and they have a very solid core of players.  

4. Kilmarnock - Losing Steve Clarke will be a massive blow but they have a really solid core of players with the likes of Taylor, O'Donnell, Findlay, Brophy et al so they should still be good for a top 6 

5. Aberdeen - The loss of key players like Shinnie will hurt them hard.  

6. Heart of Midlothian - The addition of Halkett will improve an already solid back 4, if they can keep Souttar then a back 3 of Souttar, Halkett, and Berra will be very strong

7. Motherwell, if they can keep most of their young core (that they haven't already lost) then they should be good for a solid mid table finish, good recruitment could see them challenge for a top 6 but I can't see them being better than Killie

8. St. Johnstone.  A hard team to predict but I can't see them being a top 6 challenger

9. Ross County.  They still have a solid group of players from their last season in the Premiership, I think they will be fine

10. Hamilton Academical.  I have learned not to predict Hamilton to go down, they continue to produce some decent players and recruit enough to stay up

11. Livingston.  Livi's main strength last year was a solid defensive core but the loss of Halkett and Gallagher will hurt so they will fall back to earth

12. St. Mirren.  At the moment I think they have the worst squad in the league, they were only saved last season by Dundee's incredible ineptitude but realistically the squad I see is Championship calibre, solid recruitment and further development of young players could prove me wrong though.

I've asked this before when people say we were/are lucky to stay up. What specific pieces of luck during this 38 game season made us finish in 10th, ahead of two other teams?

A lot of people over estimating Hibs and Ross County, while simultaneously under rating Aberdeen and St Johnstone, IMO.
