The final 2010-11 Prediction League Table of what was ultimately a disappointing season for the Clarets is provided below:



Congratulations must go to our winner, Claret from Away

Claret from Away wins first prize of £50, with Turfmanphil picking up second prize of £25. In joint third place, and collecting a prize of £10 each is Crosspool claret and Barnsey.

For both Crosspool and Barnsey, this is the second year they have collected something from the end of season prize giving! Can we stop them next year?

Both Welsh Claret and Dad can consider themselves unlucky to finish just one point behind the prizes.

Most have considered this to be a disappointing season on the pitch, and the same can probably be said of this prediction league (over confidence perhaps). Last season the winner, BigClaret, achieved an average of 0.87 PPG but this season we are down at 0.78.

Congratulations again to the prize-winners. I hope everyone enjoys whatever the summer may bring I am sure it will be a busy one for Eddie and the lads at the Turf and hopefully it will lead to a successful 2011/12. We will be back with another league next year hopefully the optimists among us are flying high.

Editor’s Notes:

First of all many thanks to Claret Dale for the time and effort he puts behind running this competition. I am sure you will agree with me he does a sterling job! Thanks mate

Secondly congratulations to all our winners, especially our champion, Claret from Away.

Finally I am somewhat embarrassed that somehow I have managed to finish in the top three! Must be the first time in over ten years of trying to convince myself I am any good at this! I can’t really congratulate myself and take the winnings from Vital Burnley so I will be donating my £25 to Clarets Trust.

I look forward to the 2011-12 season with some optimism and let’s all hope our prediction skills prove both successful and positive next season with plenty of predicted wins coming true!
