For a sweat? To see some cool stats and graphs? To see how your clever pick turned out to be the most popular pick? To laugh at the people who picked Watford today?

That's debatable. I think it would be more fun to see everyone's answers now. If you know which team someone you're competing with picked, you then have an interest in Stoke vs West Brom, which you wouldn't otherwise.

Both a weekly reveal or a reveal all at once would both be fun, I was just asking which one it was going to be.

take a look at the KrazyKris NFL PEEHS and this should be the sort of thing we've got in store

the whole point is to space out reveals. as it is he has laid it out well, we'll have reveals after weeks 1,2,3,5,7.

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

Yeah, it's structured the same way as KK's game. Don't expect quite as much WIM as Kris, but I'll definitely put some effort in to try to make the reveals interesting/fun.

Was thinking about making some vague comments/spoiling little tiny pieces for sweat purposes/entertainment, but probably won't go there.

I wouldn't be mad with some half-reveals early. Like TP pretty much announced that he got one already. I wouldn't be upset if some dude hits the post and you say that someone had him (but not who). Ideally like 7 people would have them in that case so they all think they might have got it by themselves.

Maybe by next week I'll import the results to my phone so I can live blog some stuff.

Right now I have it all on work computer for easy Monday/Tuesday reveals.

I'm actually not too thrilled about that. I made my choices based on a guess that there would only be around 20 entries.

Considering this, that might not have been the best estimate

I might have posted about the game in lots of different places...

Reveal will be tomorrow. Morning my time, evening EPL time.

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

I guess tomorrow could be considered a confusing term. Reveal should begin like 11-12 hours from now.

There will be at most 8 different correct answers. Wonder if anyone predicted Burnley > Chelsea?

I'm just imagining a bunch of people picked Burnley to lose and Chelsea to be undefeated for the double fail

Romelu Lukaku et al question the wisdom of this pick.

Manchester United F.C.
BOIDS
e_holle

Manchester United 4
West Ham 0

& the game was never in doubt.

Scores for the incorrect answers will be revealed later.

This next pick makes a bit more sense. This team's first PL game, on the road against a team that some people rate.

Huddersfield Town A.F.C.
Booker Wolfbox
Jabonator
kutuz_off
kingweed

Crystal Palace 0
Huddersfield 3

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



The next pick was an aggressive ace hunt. Betting on a recently called up team to take care of business at home.

The teams seemed to be playing on fairly level terms until Jonjo Shelvey stomped at any chance this pick had of working out...





Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
esad

Newcastle 0
Spurs 2

Everton has been reunited with Wayne Rooney, & at least for 1 week, it feels so good.

Everton F.C.
thedinergetsby

Everton 1
Stoke 0

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



Amidst a flurry of red cards & dissension & preventing teammates from scoring, Chelsea managed to pull defeat from the jaws of victory.







Burnley F.C.
72off
LFC_USA
LostOstrich
royalblue

Maybe this is why 72off was so MAD?

Chelsea 2
Burnley 3
