Nobody will accuse the fair and benevolent gamemaster to doctor the league picks to make it difficult on his direct opponent. It's all Austria, baby!

Unsophisticated Prediction Tiers Season 48 - League (AUT) Matchday 6 (2021-10-16 and 2021-10-17)

What to do
-----------

If you don't play in Tier 3, you can also cast your vote for Lassie's pick!

Look at the fixtures below: do you play home or away?

*Home*
- Before the end of Wednesday (= before 2021-10-13, 23:59 GMT)
=- Pick one team from each of the two matches, in order of preference

*Away*
=- After the beginning of Thursday, (or even sooner, if the home player has picked their teams) and before kickoff of the first match on Saturday, 2021-10-16
- Pick one of the teams not picked by your opponent (if they haven't picked any team, you have free choice; if she is Lassie and there is a tie, diregard the last vote)
=- their opponents will represent your opponent

(If the away player doesn't pick any team before his deadline, the home player will be represented by his preferred team. If nobody picks a team, teams are assigned randomly.)

Hard to believe Christopher Plummer (RIP) was only 35 when that film
came out - he seemed older. His understudy for Henry V at Stratford
(Small Canadian town with major theatre festival), William Shatner, is
still going strong, and apparently planning to go into space....... ?
So Lassie does not get to choose Wolfsberg yet again. I am going to
report the gamesmaster to the RSPCA.

So the pressure's fully on me. Wouldn't have expected anything less.

It's actually not a bad movie and not viewed as such here. We're just a bit bemused by its undying popularity (while cashing
in on it). And by how Christopher Plummer and his family after finishing that song managed to hike from Salzburg across
the border to Switzerland.

I don't know where Google gets its data from, but LASK-WAC is going to be played on Sunday afternoon.
Lassie sure is valiant ('wacker') so she has to go for those two.
The heraldic panther in Admira's logo is just the icing on the cake.


Ciao,
Werner

Let's make the decision easy for Werner:

1. Austria Wien
2. Wacker

Oh sorry, I misread - 'no earlier than', not 'no later than'.

Well, in that case Google's right.

Damnit. Wacker Innsbruck have just fired their coach (former 1860 Munich player and manager Daniel Bierofka),
so are certain to get a new manager bounce. I also don't trust Admira to get a result away to even an Austria
Vienna in crisis. Still, against Daniele I have to go with Andi Herzog's team.

FC Flyeralarm Admira Wacker Mödling.

A draw is enough?

See, that is what local knowledge is for.

Aaargh, I wasn't aware of Andi Herzog!... Congratulations on the Season 48 title

Yet another season with a promotion chance on md 6. Yet another
disappointment to come.

When in doubt, Homer:

LASK

I should roll a die... Anyway, my vast and precise knowledge of the
Austrian pyramid tells me to pick:
1. Austria Wien
2. Rapid Wien II
(i.e. when in doubt, go Homer?)

May the less polite player win!

Very nice of Lassie to leave Homer the two home teams. He picks Austria Vienna.

Tiers 1 and 3 went with the top league matches, Tier 2 with the II. Bundesliga. Away wins for Amstetten and Wacker Innsbruck means that Jesus returns to Tier 1, while milivella drops to Tier 3 (bwahahaha!)

In the key matchup for the title, it's 1-1 in the 51st minute. Flyeralarm took the lead early, but the Viennese equalized just 5 minutes later. Come on you Violets! Channel the spirit of Sindelar, Prohaska, Schachner and Polster!

Noah Ohio scores for Austria, but some guy with a ridiculously long name equalizes again. 2-2, 11 minutes to go.

Mark stays up, ixion falls to Tier 2. I get to choose the league next. I hadn't realized that Mark could still have won the whole thing, even though he would have needed a historical goalfest to pip one of us to the top two places.

Jesus returns to Tier 1, milivella drops to Tier 3. Ah well, not a terrible UPT season after all.

I believe I won once before (in close to 50 seasons...). Hurray to home advantage!

Andi Herzog to the rescue once again, by all accounts Admira's late equaliser came out of nowhere.

It was not up to date. Also, you had to dig really deep to find the list of winners and the Hall of Fame. Even though I appreciate the fact that you stopped updating the file after the Season 40 Cup final, which obviously never took place.
