For those wondering (wandering?) teams...

Guess The Crowd 15, Villa v Ipswich will be a quick one, a week long, launching just after Villa v Hull is over and so the Brucie will be wild all week.

This is to avoid too many overlaps and threads in HD, because there are a couple of rounds coming up fairly closely after that.

So keep an 👁 on Heroes Discussion at the weekend!  ;)

And maidstonevillan has been promoted!  Congratulations  :D
 

Zouch Villa has been inactive for 7 consecutive rounds so has been relegated to D5.

Anybody in there can revive their team and keep their points by guessing again.  Hope to see the comeback soon, Zouch!

About to have some tea, so D4 will be posted later.

Maidstonevillan has been promoted to Division 3, so Richard takes over the lead in Division 4, excellently played!
He’s followed closely by a dedicated band of guessers also fiercely determined to break out asap! Only halfway through the season, so

anything can happen in the next half hour!
( I find the Stingray quote always comes out at times like this.)

Congratulations to Sid 1964 and JUAN PABLO who have revived themselves from Division 5 by guessing.  I know, I trailed these promotions last time. I’m just so excited!  Keep going, guys.

Welcome to Horatio Hornblower and Dr Gonzo, the latest H&Vers to join Guess The Crowd. :D

CDBWF is holding on to the top spot! 8)
CD’s also the top scorer over these 2 rounds in D1.
That’s probably the secret of your success?

jimmygreen is still rising through the ranks which is excellent news at this stage of the competition.  Would that the Villa could manage to do the same, again.

eamonn is the highest scorer with 12 points over these 2 rounds!

johnboy got 6 points over 2 rounds, which could mean that the renaissance has begun!

Re: Guess The Crowd 2018/19; Trinity stand availability

Hello everybody

A team has posted 2 numbers in the current round, saying one is for if the Upper T is open and the other guess, if not.  You can see my reply and suggestion to resolve it, in GTC18.  I referred to a previous statement about this situation so here it is:


( Taken from the GTC launch post this season)

‘VP capacity is still a bit of a mystery without the UT, but with it, it is 42,640 odd, from a figure published a couple of years ago...

Championship League games tend to be played without it. Opinion last season thought that current capacity could be anywhere between 32K - 35K +...

Also: Last season, Dr Tony opened the Upper Trinity - or parts of it - very late in the run-up to certain matches to sell more tickets. No idea if our new owners will do that. If they do, well, them’s the breaks, no second guesses allowed, sorry!



How it works:
I use the Villa’s own ticket sales page on the official site to check whether the whole of the Trinity is available for a home match and I monitor @avfcofficial, as well.

Sometimes the Club announces that the whole ground is open well before the match. Sometimes, they start with it closed, then suddenly open Upper T with very few days to go, after a Guess The Crowd round on here has already begun. Sometimes they don’t open it at all.

I update the GTC round with new information about the UT status as soon as I know, and so do other players.

We played GTC like this with no second guesses allowed if the UT suddenly opened, last season, so this is just continuing practice.

I hope this has made sense!
