Rant’s premier predictions 2010/11 revistited

June 4, 2011 Tags: Opinion 20 comments

In August Rant put its neck on the block to predict the season’s outcomes for the second year running. Revising the post nine months on we find that Rant correctly predicted nine of 29 variables reviewed in August. It’s four down from 13/29 a year ago, although with a number of Premier League placings very close.

Of course, we got some big ones wrong, like Manchester United winning the Premier League trophy in May and reaching the Champions League final!

United’s Season

  • Premier League: runners-up – FIRST
  • Champions League: quarter-final – FINAL
  • Carling Cup: winners – QUARTER-FINAL
  • FA Cup: fifth round – SEMI-FINAL

Predicting 3rd to 7th is no mean feat. A lot of those positions were decided in the last week or so of the league.

I MISS WATCHING UNITED!

*cries*

Oliver Gill won young player of the year? Really.

Ed - June 6, 2011 Reply

He won United’s young (well reserve) player of the year.

essien?

Ed - June 6, 2011 Reply

Yes, that was my guess, which was wrong!

I predicted United would win, as I do every season. We have won about 63% of the PL titles, so as far as I’m concerned it’s illogical to bet against United.
