Before the 2019/20 season kicked off we asked the contributors to the Fancast to give us their predictions on; our final league position, how we’d do in the League Cup, FA Cup and Champions League.
Who would be our top scorer. Who would be the player to watch and how the top 4 and Bottom 3 of the Premier League would look.
We’ve gone through those predictions (which you can see in full here) and put together a league table to see who knows what they’re talking about and who’s getting relegated.
Each correct answer received 2 points (for the top 4 and bottom 3 you score 2 points for each team regardless of whether the order was correct)
League position: Only JK (8th) and Clayton (7th) didn’t predict we’d finish 4th.
Chidge, Tony, Dan, Dean, Marco and Alex all got this one right.
Carabao Cup: JK was the only one to correctly predict we’d go out in the 4th round, which we did after losing 2-1 to Manchester United.
Dean and Marco predicted we’d win the competition.
Chidge thought we’d be runners up.
Alex, Tony and Dan predicted a semi final defeat and Clayton backed the ¼ finals.
FA Cup: Again only JK correctly predicted we’d be runners up this year. In fact JK was the only one to predict us getting past the ¼ final stage where Dan, Tony, Marco, Alex, Clayton and Dean all predicted we’d go out. And Chidge picked the 4th round.
Champions League: Well done to Clayton, Alex, Dan and Chidge who all predicted we’d go out of the competition at the last 16 stage.
Dean thought we’d go out at the group stage.
Marco and Tony thought we’d go a round better and reach the ¼ finals.
And JK thought we’d be making the semi finals.
Top scorer– Chidge and Marco both backed Chelsea’s number 9 Tammy Abraham to finish top scorer.
Tony went for Oliver Giroud.
Dean and Dan went for Michy Batshuayi.
Clayton picked Christian Pulisic.
While JK and Alex went with Ross Barkley
One to watch– everyone picked up two points here because I believe we all picked a player who had a decent season
Mason Mount got two votes from Dan and Chidge
Reece James was backed by Dean and Marco
While Christian Pulisic was the choice of Clayton, Alex, Tony and JK.
Top 4- Well done to Tony- the only person to predict all four teams correctly.
Everyone backed City and Liverpool to be the top 2, just the wrong way round (City 1st Liverpool 2nd)
Everyone apart from Tony backed Spurs in 3rd.
Everyone had Chelsea 4th apart from JK who had Arsenal
Bonus point to Clayton who said he didn’t care
Bottom 3: Only Dan, Tony and Marco picked up any points here as they all had Norwich.
The rest didn’t get any of the bottom 3 correct.
Marco was the only one not to predict Sheffield United to go down.
Another bonus point to Clayton who said he couldn’t care less.
And the winner is…..
4 way tie for the winner
On 14 points we have Chidge, Dan, Tony and Marco
Alex 12 points
Dean 10 points
JK 8 points
Clayton 6 points
