Well done once again, Seveners. We will hopefully stop you before you reach Juventus levels of domination.

seveners should be banned from this league because he is an actual time traveling alien

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen

It's time again for another season of the SAPL!
The Season Bets thread and Week 1 thread have both been posted.
You have until kickoff of the 1st game for Week 3 to enter your predictions in the Seasons Bets thread.
I hope to see all the regulars back again, and maybe some newcomers...

Any questions? Ask here or DM me.

Yay it’s back!

I think the participant number has converged around a solid figure over the last few years. It’s a good field.

Did you notice the participant decreased a lot half way through the season?

Yes.. and I thought it was the same in the last couple of years. Only some 8-9 participants hang around for the whole season, many of them drop out when they miss a few rounds or feel they can’t make the top. Personally, I’m ok with the attritional nature of this competition.

But if ulladullau wants to spruce it up, then a good way might be to look at knockouts, mini leagues etc.. which won’t be season long contests but smaller games within.

I know where you are coming from, for me, at times near the end it can feel like a bit of a chore posting and updating for only a few diehard participants.
I would love to have more regulars, but if it's not meant to be, then I am happy to provide the service to whomever wants to participate.

I started the "Champions League" knockout add-on the season before last, I thought it was a nice little add. There were a few less participants last year so I thought it wouldn't work too well. I'm happy to bring it back, along with any other suggestions.

I'm too old for that :D

Yes please, bring back the CL knockouts! If it isn't going to take up too much of your time, man.

Round 2 scores are up, SixOneFive topped the group again this week, a decent score of 10 considering he missed entering a tip for the first game.

No games this coming weekend due to international break, the official times haven't been posted to the Serie A website. I'll post them as soon as I can.

Round 3 scores are up, SixOneFive has made it a hat-trick with three consecutive top scores, well done.

With Milans complete lack of involvement in Europe this season, I totally forgot the first round of Champions League and Europa League. Sorry about that. I'll start next round.

We won't blame you for that. Both Champions and Europa League are nothing without Milan.

Champions League and Europa League scores are in, dhorasoo and Mexes5 did very well, scoring 9 points.
Unfortunately SixOneFive missed tipping, which enabled Mexes5 to shoot to the top of the leaderboard.
