More Reliable Than A League 1 Octopus? (22/2/17)

More Reliable Than A League 1 Octopus? (22/2/17)

Time for the new special computer that crunches the numbers to determine the final League One positions for 2016/17.

Last season the Octopus feature was a regular feature for the Premier League, but whilst it might be a late arrival for League One - well better late than never - it might have been having its tentacles given a Brazilian I don't know.

Then again I still don't know why I call a number crunching supercomputer an Octopus but some things are probably best left unasked.

In any event here are the updated League One predictions for the season of 2016/17 after most sides have played at least 31 games of the campaign.

Who goes down?! Who is the current favourite to lift the title this year?

Well you don't have to guess.

With most playing 31 games in the League One season of 2016/17, the current favourite to lift the title is Sheffield United but Scunthorpe push them close finishing six points behind them in second place.

The Play Off spots are also pretty nailed on if the predictions are to be believed - Bolton Wanderers, Fleetwood Town, Bradford City and Millwall take their places in the hopes for Wembley success - with Rochdale missing out by only two points.

At the other end of the table Oldham Athletic, Swindon Town, oventry City and Chesterfield are set for life in League Two in 2017/18.

The one thing that can't be denied now we've past the half way point of the season is a number of clubs will now be very disappointed with where they find themselves (if they put any stock in predictions) and will be looking for a speedy change in form as the second half of the season progresses.

Prediction wise there are a number in midtable who will be delighted with their finish if it plays out like this, but clearly others will be horrified with how they are expected to fall off the pace come May.

But predictions are a reflection on the season so far, and absolutely nothing more.
