Scottish Cup Pop Up 2021/22

Recommended Posts

I see what you've done, BB. Thanks for  putting in such a lot of work for us punters.  Although I'm not a gambling man I confess that for previous tourneys I've  had a look at the bookies odds, with the occasional  odds on result changed if I liked the opposition. 

Although   I took the fancy named teams in the previous round, I  don't think my success rate was that high, so, for what it's worth, you've saved me some time & effort!

I'll not be too hasty though, & I'll submit my teams shortly.  Again many thanks for going that bit further for us all. In the absence of the Miners Welfare & Dundonald Bluebell, I've got to go for Hill of Beath Hawthorn, followed by Burntisland  Shipyard!!

After all the work put in to devise the randomiser it would be extremely daft of me to think I could guess any better, so here's the results I was sent!

HHAHAAAHAHAAAAHHAHAHHHAHHHAHHH

:unknw::wacko2:

just read the PM and the rules after a few beers and a couple of glasses of vino (for one night only I'll be bobbyhouston!) - reckon I'll have to read it again on a clear head!!

Message received and (partially) understood BB :thumbsup2: - thanks for that extra effort.

As a side note, nice wee local game for me these days with Penicuik vs Tranent - should be a good one!

I'm with Scotty in concluding that my random guesses would be way worse than your methodical ones, BB,

so I'll ditch my manual one and go with your 21st century automated "pin" and say -

 

AAHHAAAAAAHHHHAHHHHAAAHHAHHHHH

 

Many thanks for saving my few remaining brain cells.

Perhaps my explanation was not very clear. Apologies. Basically, they are random H/As with an advantage given to higher ranked teams and those playing at home.

Was just about to look up for an Open University course to help. Never a dull moment!! Happy to go random!!

Went with my own predictions, but thanks for all the work you have put into this.

That's good AJ. I only intended it as a help if required.

Delighted to go with your super dodgy algorithm suggestions BB - partly as I can't be arsed typing out 30 results or figuring out who some of the teams are!!

Let me know if you need a cut & paste boss :thumbsup2:

I'll  also go with your algorithm suggestions, BB.   I was about to fill them in, but I see that the clever gianlucatoni  has discovered a short cut!  

Can I ask that you transfer the recommendations you  sent me into your spreadsheet as well?   It will save me buggering it up if I make one of my occasional typos!

As ever,many thanks.  :worship:

Any blanks in the spreadsheet at deadline time will be filled with the random selections. If you're happy to go with those, there's no need to do anything. Lazy [email protected]!

a bit of collective responsibility is required here BB - for your Fields Medal antics have merely activated the inherent laziness buried deep in our subconscious :whistling:

Well...yes. Fair point.

Let's see how many points my dabbling in probabilities produces. The Fields Medal may turn out to be a chocolate coin :)
