    Sorry for missing the last prediction, forgot to tell you I was going on holiday.

    For the Goal Frenzy I'd say Ishu to win it.

    Welcome to the December Show, Coming up today we have the final Semi Final of the English Regional War and the last two quarter finals of the World Wars as well as a Gauntlet Quarter final and the first two quarter finals from goal frenzy. Unfortunately no bids were put in for the challenge belt battle or for any grudge matches so there will be none of them this month.

    World Wars Quarter Final 3

    Pundit

    This match sees two of the unfancied robots going up against each other for a place in the world wars semi final and top four overall in the world. It’s time for Armadou Traore-Mcnamee vs Sam Flynn

    Battle
    Armadou Traore-Mcnamee was left out of the first match of the month as Oxford lost 2-0 to Chesterfield, this prompted the manager to change the team around a bit and he was restored to the line up for the game against Stevenage, unfortunately this also ended up in a loss with Armadou coming out with a 6.1 rating, despite this he was left in the starting line up as Oxford took on Wycome and drew 0-0 rating in at 6.9. The manager then decided he’d had his chance and so was left completely out of the squad as Oxford got battered 4-0 at home to barnet, this hammering saw him restored to the side for the win over Burton rating in at 7.0. He started the final game of the month a defeat to Crewe rating at 6.5.
    Score 6.63

    Sam Flynn got an injury 4 days into the month which ended any hope he had of making a brake-through at Leeds keeping him out for the entire month.
    Score 0.00

    Pundit
    Well that was the walkover many of us predicted although Armadou will have to improve considerably if he wishes to make the final, as for Sam Flynn its come back again next year.

    World Wars Quarter Final 4

    Pundit

    This is an interesting matchup both Chris Hatton and Dead Metal performed poorly in the heats, but somehow dead metal is the public’s second favourite to win this competition picking up 36% of the vote. Let’s find out which of the robots has managed to lift their performance and qualify for the Semi Final.

    Battle
    Chris Hatton has started to make his breakthrough at Carrarese; he was on the bench for the game against Bellaria and came off it in the second game of the month against Crociati Noceto. He was left out of the squad for the final game before the winter break
    Score 6.50

    Dead Metal has failed to make any more appearances for Newcastle this month and is still training with the reserves.
    Score 0.00

    Pundit
    Well that went against popular predictions with the second favourite for the competition Dead Metal dropping out of the competition at this stage. Anyway the draw for the semi final has now been made
    Chip Butty vs Armadou Traore-Mcnamee
    Joe Tompkins vs Chris Hatton

    English Regional Wars Semi Final 2

    Pundit
    Maz Armley vs Chip Butty should be an interesting battle as they both scored well in the heats. Chip Butty is the favourite for the competition so you would expect him to progress.

    Battle
    Maz Armley came off the bench in the game against Kidderminster in the 1-1 draw rating at 6.4. He was then an unused substitute in the FA Trophy clash against Guiseley before being left out of the squad completely against Grimsby. He started the defeat to bath rating at 6.7, before in the final game of the month being an unused sub as York beat Mansfield.
    Score 6.55

    Chip Butty was injured before the month started and is still expected to be out for another 3 or 4 months.
    Score 0.00

    Pundit
    Well that was a surprise, the hot favourite for this competition is out. Maz Armley has pulled off a great coup in winning this match but will have to do so once again if he wants to win as he goes up against Alex Seddon in the final.

    Gauntlet Second Quarter Final

    Pundit

    The random number generator chose number 7 for the first time, this is most passes completed so that is what George Tugby and Mackemkillah will be judged on

    Battle
    George Tugby is still training with the Everton u18 squad and made no appearances for the first team this month, he did however pick up a major injury which is expected to keep him out for another 3 or 4 months.
    Score 0

    Mackemkillah racked up 35 passes in the 0-0 draw with Forest Green, before being left out of the squad for the FA Trophy match against Sittingbourne. He was back in the starting line up for the draw against Kettering gaining an extra 19 passes. He scored a goal and picked up a further 29 passes for the win against Luton. He started the final game of the month against Southport picking up an extra 30 passes in the 3-1 defeat.
    Score 113

    Dead Metal has failed to make any more appearances for Newcastle this month and is still training with the reserves.
    Score 0

    Judges
    We were left with a tough decision here but we felt that because he is in the reserves and fit we will just give this to Dead Metal, sorry George.

    Pundit
    Well that was a very convincing performance by Mackemkillah as he progresses through to the semi finals, a very disappointing round for Dead Metal but he too also progresses.
    1) Mackemkillah
    2) Dead Metal

    Goal Frenzy Quarter Final 1

    Pundit

    The results of the predictions are in
    Chris Owen 60%
    Ishu 27%
    Lucas Volman 13%
    Chris Owen is the hot favourite here but Amadou will be sure to provide stiff opposition

    Battle
    Chris Owen added his 6th international cap starting the friendly in over Algeria. In the first game of the month against Barrow he scored the only goal in a 1-0 win. He was left out of the FA Trophy draw against Forest Green as his manager thought they could get through without him and he could do with a rest, as this was not the case he was restored to the starting line for the replay where he scored 2 goals in the 3-0 win. He followed that up with a further 2 goals in the 4-0 win over Gateshead before ending the month with another goal in the 4-1 win over Wrexham
    Score 6

    Amadou Traore-Mcnamee made four appearances for Oxford this month out of a possible 6 games but has still yet to break his goal scoring duck for the club.
    Score 0

    Pundit
    Well that went exactly as expected with Chris Owen one of the favourites for this competition hammering his way into the semi finals.

    Goal Frenzy Quarter Final 2


    Pundit

    This match sees Joe Tompkins take on the only house robot to make it through the heats, remember if Panic Attack wins this battle then he will not nbe allowed to take part in the Semi Final, instead his opponent will be given a bye to the final.

    Battle
    Joe Tompkins didn’t recover from his injury this month and so made no appearances scoring no goals. He will however be back to action within the next three days so all is not lost.
    Score 0

    Panic Attack scored a goal in the first match of the month and started the next four matches picking up one further goal.
    Score 2

    Pundit
    Well Panic Attack won this match although will not take a place in the semi final as he is a house robot instead the winner of the Sir Killalot vs Lucas Volman match will be given a bye through to the final.

    It wasn't you I was talking about, although you had an even better record as BSP top scorer so you could possibly say you are in the same boat, although as I have finished holidaying i couldn;t possibly speculate anymore due to knowing all the transfers that have happened ;). All I'm gonna say is at least four players have moved clubs including two to English champions league clubs where they are getting games, You will find out when these players are next in there competitions or if they are already out of everything when they enter a challenge belt or grudge match, or in the end of season update

    BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

    Figured this is probably a good time to mention this, You May have noticed at the start of the season when the Schedule was released there was an event Called House Robot Rebellion which no one had the opportunity to enter, I will be contacting people over the next fortnight to take part in this event which takes place in May, You will be contacted via PM if you have been Chosen and will have to do something within a certain period of time to confirm your entry into this competition which will have a small amount of prize money. The people chosen to enter this will be chosen on the best players that have performed in the game and also regular posters in this thread , although the two robots who are contesting the World Wars Final will not be eligible as that is also taking place in may. Don't worry if you have not been chosen and you see others being chosen, people will be contacted in small groups about there entry spread out over the next two weeks so you may still get your chance.

    Screen shots are given out to players who win competitions, grudge matches or challenge belt matches, if you want a screen shot either challenge for the belt or a grudge match, or i think your player is still in at least one competition so you may get it if you win that

    Welcome to the January show, we don't have so many battles for you this month but we have some crackers in there, including a very impressive performance by one of the robots. Once again no one has challenged for the belt, hopefully that will change next month.

    Gauntlet Quarter Final three

    Pundit
    The random number generator has once again thrown up the number 2 so we will be comparing the amount of goals scored. This is our final quarter final and after this we will know the line up of our Gauntlet Semi Finals.

    Battle
    Alesi Shotronne has still not made his debut for Palermo and is currently training with the U20s, although he has now picked up an injury which will keep him out for around two weeks. He has however been given a new contact until June 2013 with a slight pay rise he is now on £140 a week
    Score 0

    Chris Owen, well what can you say about this guy, he started the month at Newport County earning £600 a week and ended it at Tottenham on £105,000 a week. He had a poor start to the month by his standards rating in at 6.9 in the 3-1 win over York, before scoring three and rating in at 9.6 in the 3-1 win over Crawley in what would prove to be his last game at the club, on the 10th of January he moved to Tottenham for £425k, signing a contract for £105k a week. He left Newport with an outstanding record, scoring 38 goals in 26 games and picking up 16 Man of the match awards, 17 assists for his team mate and finishing with an average rating of 8.72. He wasn’t overawed in his new surroundings though, in his first Tottenham game he helped the side to a 5-0 win over scoring two goals and rating in at 9.5. He failed to score but still rated a 7.4 as the team drew with Liverpool before being ineledgible for the FA Cup clash against Arsenal which Spurs lost 5-0.
    Score 5

    Sam Flynn is still training with the u18s at Leeds and with his contract up ate the end of the season will really need to start trying to make his breakthrough at the club.
    Score 0

    Judges
    Well outstanding by Chris Owen he flies through in first place, we feel that Alesi Shotronne deserves second place due to getting a new contract.

    Pundit
    Chris Owen is now the clear favourite for this tournament with that fantastic performance, Alesi will have to up his game to make the final as he really doesn’t deserve to have made it this far.

    1) Chris Owen
    2) Alesi Shotronne

    Well that means the draw for the Semi finals is now complete
    1) Sir Killalot Vs Dead Metal Vs Chris Owen
    2) Chris Hatton Vs Mackemkillah Vs Alesi Shotronne

    I can’t see anyone challenging Chris Owen Here

    Goal Frenzy Quarter Final 3

    Pundit

    Gon Pereira will struggle here unless he makes a move as his season has finished, whereas Ishu will be looking to improve now his transfer has finally gone through.

    Gon Pereira has just been moved down to the Derry City u18s although it is expected that this is just for the off season to keep his fitness up and he should be back amongst the first team. He has however been given a new contract until the end of December 2012 an extention of 6 months, with a pay increase he is now up to £130 a week.
    Score 0

    Ishu has completed his transfer to Lyon where he signed a contract worth £400 a week until June 2015. Despite being amongst the first team he is yet to make an appearance

    This was a tough decision for us to make, but in the end we felt we had to just give it too Gon Pereira who only failed to make an appearance as his season has ended.

    Pundit
    A boring match there but Gon Pereira progresses to the semi final, where he will have to improve as he’s up against the might of Chris Owen.

    Goal Frenzy Quarter Final 4

    Pundit

    Both of these players have been getting game time so it could be a very close battle. Th winner will be given a bye to the final

    Sir Killalot had a very poor month this time round, he was left out of the first game of the month against Leyton Orient, against Carlisle he came on too late too be given a rating and he was left out of the third game of the month against Swindon. After this he picked up an injury which will keep him out for the rest of the month
    Score 0

    Lucas Volman missed the first half of the month as his league observed a winter break, on his first game back though there was terrible look as he picked up an injury which will keep him out for a further two weeks.
    Score 0

    Judges
    Another dull match but as Lucas Volman started a game we feel he has to progress

    Pundit
    The draw for the Semi Finals has now been made
    1) Chris Owen vs Gon Pereira
    2) Lucas Volman progresses

    Shotronne really doesn't deserve to be that high Made a huge mistake placing him in Palermo & spending big in the first season. Here's hoping I can grab some cash from the predictions for the next season.

    Sloppyderek: Yeah pretty amazing really
    5ergio: Yeah you had two bets on chris owen which as they were the first on him are double money bets so that should come off for you, I'm sure you'll be making our breakthrough soon though, either at Palermo or on loan next season maybe. Also with some new events being held next year i will be altering some of the pricing so there may be something on the cheaper end for you


    Just to be clear to everyone, if you receive a pm regarding the house robot rebellion it should be posted in here and not responded to via pm

    Dami accepts the challenge of Pussycat to a battle in the House Robot Rebellion.
    Why do I think I can my robot can defeat Pussycat. We have the advantage since Midfielders usually cover the most ground during a season. The only problem I can see in this robot is the lack of a regular starting place in the team,maybe the manager will start playing him more often.

    One more thing Pussycat is probably in dreamland if he thinks he can win this battle, Just ask Joe Tompkins how he felt after battling our robot for the challenge belt. Get ready, you're going to be pulverized Pussycat

    World Wars Semi Final One

    Pundit

    In the first Semi final we have a very interesting clash between Chip Butty and Armadou Traore-Mcnamee, Chip Butty would have been the favourite but will he still be able to perform now his loan deal at Wrexham has finished.

    Battle
    Chip Butty is now back at Sheffield United after his loan spell at Wrexham finished in January. Unfortunately for him though he is still out from the injury that he picked up way back in November and is still expected to be out for a further 11 days to 3 weeks, he will need to perform well when he comes back as he currently has no contract for next year.
    Score 0

    Armadou Traore-Mcnamee has negotiated to join a new club once his contract ends, next year he will be playing in the German first division for Dortmund. He was left out of Oxfords first match of the month as they beat Southport 3-1 but was restored to the starting line up for the draw with Accrington rating at 6.9. He also started the 1-0 wins over Torquay and Macclesfield where he rated at 6.6 and 6.7 respectively. In the final game of the month he scored a 6.5 as they beat Hereford.
    Score 6.75

    Pundit
    That means Armadou takes his place in the final, very unlucky there for Chip Butty though

    Gauntlet Semi Final One

    Pundit

    The random number generator has thrown up the number 3 for the first time so we will be comparing the amount of goals conceded by the team when in the side, as usual this will be done by an average so as not to unfairly penalise those who play games. This may have given the other two hope that they may make the final as this could be Chris Owens one weakness that they can capitalise on.

    Battle
    Sir Killalot has really fallen out of favour at Oldham recently; he was only picked in the teams’ squad of 18 once this month and then wasn’t allowed off the bench. He still hasn’t got a contract for next year and must surely be worrying about his future.
    Score N/A

    Dead Metal left Newcastle where he was stuck in the reserves in January, and joined Man City where he has been placed in the reserves, not getting any first team action. The transfer was for £2.2million and he now has a contract worth £950 a week until 2015.
    Score N/A

    Chris Owen scored the only goal as Tottenham lost 2-1 to Manchester City; he had a poor performance for him rating at 6.6 as they drew 1-1 against Aston Villa. That poor performance saw him dropped for the win over Stoke before being restored to the starting line up as they drew 0-0 with Inter Milan in the Champions League. In the final game of the month he scored the only goal in the 1-0 win over Wolves
    Score: 1 per 120mins

    Pundit
    Well any hopes of a shock were messed up with Dead Metals and Sir Killalots terrible performance. Chris Owen despite peoples belief that this may be his weak spot performed amazingly to make his way into the final.

    Goal Frenzy Semi Final One

    Pundit

    This competition seems to have been made for Chris Owen, the winner of this match will face Lucas Volman in the final and surely it has to be Chris Owen.

    Battle
    Chris Owen scored the only goal as Tottenham lost 2-1 to Manchester City; he had a poor performance for him rating at 6.6 as they drew 1-1 against Aston Villa. That poor performance saw him dropped for the win over Stoke before being restored to the starting line up as they drew 0-0 with Inter Milan in the Champions League. In the final game of the month he scored the only goal in the 1-0 win over Wolves
    Score: 2

    Gon Pereira stood no chance this month, he is still playing for Derry City in Ireland and so had no matches this month.
    Score 0

    Pundit
    Well no surprises there, despite a poor haul of goals by his standards Chris Owen progresses to the final to take on Lucas Volman.

    Challenge Belt Battle

    Pundit
    Well once again Joe Tompkins is challenging Dami for the belt, after being injured last time will he be able to perform to his best this time.

    Battle
    Joe Tompkins completed a £400k move to Swansea City in January; he now has £8750 a week until 2013. It looked like it was going to be another terrible Challenge belt bid as he missed Swansea’s first five games of the month with an injury he picked up in January shortly after completing his move. Luckily he recovered in time for the final game of the month where he scored two goals rating in at 8.9 as Swansea beat Leeds.
    Score 8.9

    Dami has signed a new contract at Wrexham with an extension of one year, and a pay rise to £325 a week. He started the 0-0 draw against Tamworth rating at 6.8; he was then rested for the FA Trophy clash as they crashed out to Corby. He was back in the side for the defeat to Fleetwood rating in at 7.0 but was dropped again as Wrexham lost to Altrincham before he was back in the side and rated 6.1 as they won 1-0 but dropped again for the draw with Darlington.
    Score 6.63

    Pundit
    Well second time lucky for Joe Tompkins, he was lucky though as if the injury had lasted a couple of days longer he would have lost out to Dami once again. Whether Dami will have the guts to re-challenge for the belt is yet to be seen.

Remember everyone keep checking your pm's to see if you have received an invite to the House Robot Rebellion.

    12th Jan - May Update - House Robot Rebellion and World Wars Final
    12th Jan - Opening of entries to the competitions for the Second Wars including new pricing and new competitions

    19th Jan - Closing of entries for the competitions second wars
    20th Jan - Release of Draw for all competitions and Schedule for second wars

    If you are not around for those dates please can you let me know particularly for the choosing of new events between the 12th and the 20th, because i will have to make new arrangements, probably by releasing to you early the list and costs of events but exactly what the solution will be I will take on an individual basis after a conversation between us

    Thankyou, hopefully we will be able to weed-out the inactive members and get them replaced for the start of the second wars by finding out who doesn't register for a competition

    EDIT Almondo and Greenwhitearmy you have now missed your chance for the house robot rebellion, can i ask everyone to please keep checking there inbox

    Chris Hatton accepts the challenge of Panic Attack to a battle in the House Robot Rebellion.

    When interviewed by the Serie C paper, Carrarese striker Chris Hatton said of the battle "I hope Panic Attack knows exactly what he has let himself in for by challenging me to this duel. He's on a hiding to nothing. I'm feeling in the form of my life, I've got all the weapons that will defeat him in one big swoop."

    Lucas Volman accepts the challenge of Fire Storm to a battle in the House Robot Rebellion.

    "Fire Storm doesn't stand a chance, as soon as I'll enter the ring he will run away with his tail between his legs" said Volman in another interview with the Serie C paper, before following it up with: "I won't even have to be at my best to beat him, I know I can take on anyone right now and humiliate them!"

    Ah well, I forgot about the Summer season thing. At least I'll have the upper hand come June and July, but with Derry demoting me to the under 18s I wonder...
