Computer used to predict the scores of matches

Recommended Posts

Anybody else remember this happening? Iirc the results were only used for the football pools and didn't effect the league tables. Was it in the 70s or am I imagining it.

Maybe we could get our accountants involved and input the results from 1991. That's an idea.

That's what I thought it was for the coupons. Maybe I'm getting if mixed up with them using a computer for horse racing (grand national) during foot and mouth.

Think they stopped doing the horse racing after the computer said that two horses had to be shot after it predicted the result of the national.:sad:

Having analysed them for 3 months can you input the following data into the Sheffield Wednesday Prediction program please Mr Jones 

 

They can't pass,

They seem unable to run 

They don't have a set way of playing but seemed to enjoy the flat back 9 in a recent cup match 

 

 

Here is the prediction now sir,

 

Wednesday 0 - Forest 4 

 

System seems to work perfectly Jones

We used to play a cricket game 'Owzthat' I think it was called, which used a special dice. I'm sure we played a football dice game by the same company.  We could use that instead of crappy computers.

 

There was also Logacta which used dice and complex rules but was surprisingly realistic rules wise.  You had to fill in loads of charts though.
