Arrow 2017-2018 English Premier League Football Season Long PEEHS



Hello football fans! (line shamelessly ripped from KrazyKris' NFL Peehs intro...there might be more stolen content in here)

There will be 30 total questions; 19 spread out throughout the season, and then 11 for the end of the season. There will be 15 questions about teams, and 15 about individual players.

RESEARCH IS ALLOWED
Feel free to do as much reading as you want before your entry. Or as little as you want.

SCORING
This is PEEHS. The winner(s) will have the lowest total score after all 30 questions have been revealed. PEEHS rewards those of you that submit a correct answer that is guessed by as few entrants as possible.

If your answer is correct, you will get as many points as the number of people who said the answer.

Incorrects will be scored as (SHEEP score for that question) + (# of different correct answers submitted for that question).

Scoring twist: you will never be rewarded for an incorrect answer in my PEEHS, so if your answer would have scored more points if it was correct than incorrect, that's how many points you will get.

For example, if there are 3 correct answers given, and the SHEEP is worth 10, you would normally get 13 points for an incorrect answer. However, if 20 people said the incorrect answer you chose, you will get 20.

All other scoring as normal.

ENTRIES
Anyone can play; all I need from you is a PM with your entry. Please single-space your entry. Non-numbered is preferred, but as long as I can figure out what you're trying to do, I can probably work with it. Please use first and last names of players if applicable.

Entries close on Friday August 11th (11 August if you prefer), at kickoff of the opening game, which is scheduled to be Arsenal hosting Leicester at 7:45 pm local time, 2:45 pm USA east coast time, & 11:45 am JM3 Pacific Time.

Feel free to resubmit any time prior to opening kickoff. Optimal strategy might be to get an entry in early, then reconsider closer to the deadline. That way you don't forget to enter, but can still take into consideration the latest transfer window/injury news.

The Questions:

#1 - Name a team that will lose their opening game (most games August 12th).
#2 - Name a team that will be undefeated at the end of Week 2 (August 20th).
#3 - Name a team that will have 3 or less points by the end of Week 3 (August 27th).
#4 - Name a player who will have 2 or more goals by the end of Week 5 (September 17th).
#5 - Name a goalkeeper who will have 2 or more clean sheets by the end of Week 7 (October 1st).
#6 - Name a team that will have 5 or more road points by the end of Week 9 (October 22nd).
#7 - Name a player with at least 20 interceptions by the end of Week 11 (November 5th).
#8 - Name a player with at least 15 shots on target by the end of Week 13 (November 26th).
#9 - Name any team with an own goal by the end of Week 15 (December 10th).
#10 - Name a player who will score a goal or record an assist on Boxing Day (December 26th).
#11 - Name a team that is neither in the top 4 or the bottom 4 after the New Year’s Day games (January 1st).
#12 - Name a player who will have hit the woodwork at least twice by the end of Week 20 (January 21st).
#13 - Name any team that will be in the top 8 for most Goals Allowed at the end of Week 22 (February 4th).
#14 - Name any team that will be in the top 8 in most Goals Scored by the end of Week 24 (February 25th).
#15 - Name a player to have converted at least 2 penalty kicks by the end of Week 26 (March 11th).
#16 - Name any team that will have tied Chelsea at least once by the end of Week 28 (April 1st).
#17 - Name a player who will have had at least one red card by the end of Week 30 (April 15th).
#18 - Name a team in the top 8 in saves by the end of Week 32 (April 29th).
#19 - Name a team that will be playing in a game that matters on the last day of the season either for a top 6 spot, or a relegation spot. The game can matter either for that team, or for their opponent (May 13th).

#20 (Season's End) - Name someone who will have scored at least 15 goals.
#21 (Season's End) - Name someone who will have at least 8 assists.
#22 (Season's End) - Name someone who will make at least 2,000 passes.
#23 (Season's End) - Name someone who will take at least 100 shots.
#24 (Season's End) - Name someone who will make at least 150 crosses.
#25 (Season's End) - Name someone who will receive at least 8 yellow cards.
#26 (Season’s End) - Name someone who will make at least 85 tackles.
#27 (Season's End) - Name any team that had at least one game where they scored at least 4 goals, and at least one game where they allowed at least 4 goals.
#28 (Season's End) - Name any team that finishes the season in the top 6 in the standings.
#29 (Season's End) - Name any team that finished in the top half of the table last year that will finish in the bottom half this year, or any team that finished in the bottom half last year (or didn’t play in the Premier League last year) that will finish in the top half this year.
#30 (Season's End) - Name any team that will finish the season with a negative goal differential.

Thank you for doing this. It's been a few years since I followed the Premier League really closely; now I've got a new reason to get back into it. I'm bookmarking all the links.

Liverpool FTW.

Re: 2017-2018 English Premier League Football Season Long PEEHS

Oops, just realized two things...

#6 should say 5 or more road points, & I please provide 1st & last names if there is going to be any possible confusion at all.

Going to have an SE mod edit the OP.

So the objective is to answer correctly but have a uniquely correct answer?

Yes, a perfect game would involve giving a correct answer to every question, and being the only one to say that answer.

It's better to give the most popular correct answer than a wrong answer, but how much depends on how many different correct answers are given.

How aggressive you want to go in terms of safe answers, answers you think other people might say, etc., is part of the strategy.

If people who are betting money (or other stakes that involve things funnier than money) want to have their own little additional tables in the standings, just lmk.

Standard 2+2 betting disclaimer about how 2+2 is not responsible for people making bets & then losing & lol'ing & running away with your money.
