Week 23 – Darrell Super 6 Predictions

Well, a very grand afternoon t’y’all. All reacclimatised after the shock of getting back to work? Bully for you.

The first tell-tale signs of winter floated down from the skies over the Black Country this morning at around 9am. That’s all the more reason to stay here, with Thet Watson, and let me entertain you over the next couple of parky months, here in the UK.

Obviously, you can follow our Super 6 league, but first off this week, The European Tour is back! That’s right, all you golf fanatics. Not only will we be pitching our wits against Gillette Soccer Saturday’s team of experts, but also going up against the whole of Europe in The Fantasy Race to Dubai.

It’s been a while since we posted anything golf, here from Darrelldoo Towers. But with the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship marking the start of the European Tour’s Race to Dubai, we’ll write that wrong with a summary of who’s going to do what both on the PGA and European Tours.

But back to today and the six predictions that make up our Darrell Super 6 league. Remember, we only give 3 points for a correct score and 1 for a correct result. The SKY team give 5 and 2 respectively – I still maintain they nicked the idea from us, last season.

Anyhoo, direct from Twitter, here are Jord’s, Les’s, Micky D’s, Ken’s, Pat’s and my own forecasts for this week’s six chosen games. All from the Premier League and, I must say, none of them are what you’d call bankers.

So, without further a Darrelldoo, herewith this week’s predictions, in no particular order…

And that brings you bang up to date with all of our predictions. Check back here at around 5:30pm today where the results will appear, as if by magic, in the comments box, below. Over the course of the week, I’ll endeavour to bring the league and cup up to speed, too.

I’ll also unveil my first Fantasy Race to Dubai team.  Anyone fancy going head-to-head, you can create a mini-league on the European Tour site itself.  It would add a bit of spice. I mean, Laura Kennedy won it last year – can’t let a girlie girl win again, can we?  C’mon, fellas – let’s have a craic!

Have you had a go on this week’s Soccer Saturday Super 6? Why not let us know who you’ve plumped for, who you support, where you’re from? A bit of banter on match day is always welcome. I’ll even give your predictions a tweet to all of our FeckTV followers – you can’t say fairer than that, can you?

Keep in touch with yourself,
Thet Watson.


DarrellSuper6 Predictions – Week 19

After an astonishing week last week, Ken continuing his shit-hot form that sees him running away with this year’s league with a record four correct scores/12 points, we see if we can do anything to halt his romp.  Les wasn’t far behind with a fourth best ever total in our league of ten points, with three correct scores and a correct result.

So, it’s all to play for for runner up, I think.  Here are our week 19 predictions, direct from the twitter stream:-


There are a few goal-fests predicted there as well as a few stalemates. Will there be the landslides predicted or will there be a few upsets? The way this season’s going, nothing is certain.

Let the games begin!

See you back here next Wednesday, probably, assuming that there’s a full boxing day fixture list.

Have a great Christmas and a wonderful weekend, to boot.

Bon chance, toutes les mondes. mwah!

Today’s Golfer – Find all the latest golf news, gear news and tour news and events. The best golfing news and golf events, all here on one site.

Of course, when you’re starting out in the ezine game yourself, you’ve got to have a couple of inspirational magazines to look up to.

Today’s Golfer, hosting this competition, Golf Magic and Great Golf Magazine are three online golf magazines that I’ll not only look into, but likewise look up to on the start of this fantastic journey.

The competition to win the chance to take on Joe Miller, the 2010 long drive champion on the famous 10th at The Belfry‘s world-famous Brabazon golf course, is simplicity in itself.  Well, if you’ve got a Twitter account.

You can find Today’s Golfer on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheTodaysGolfer (funnily enough); there, you’ll see they’re tweeting this competition into the public stream, visible to anyone following them.

All you have to do is re-tweet their tweet and add the hash-tag: #tglongdrive onto their original tweet (blimey – all this tweeting you’d think we were in an aviary – where’s Sylvester when you need him?) and that’s it – you’re in with the chance, along with three others, to take on both Miller & the mighty Brabazon 10th all in one fell swoop!

I’m going to pop this little article straight into this week’s edition of UK Golf, so if you miss this bookmark, simply subscribe to the RSS there and you’ll never miss an article again!

That’s it – TTFN,

7 practical Twitter marketing tips that really work.

link saved on http://www.delicious.com/zebedeerox

Part automated (the under the hood stuff) and part manual (the human interface stuff) this guy, James Blute, has genuinely put together a useful seven-step process for succeeding with Twitter.

If you’re an affiliate marketer of some renown or are simply looking to get into Internet marketing, trying out this process for the Tweet Adder thang (I signed up for it 2 years ago and wish I’d had a blueprint for Twitter success like this to go with it) you will start to make your first ripples, both at making money online and the precursor to that, becoming someone who builds a loyal following through trust.

The basic premise of the article is to help you find what you want from twitter if you’re looking at it from a marketing point of view, who to look for to follow, both as an influence on your business and to help identify a sales market on twitter and, as important as anything else, how to be aware of and keep up with the competition.

At first, the amount of people in the same boat as you will seem massive, but if you stick to one aim, don’t get distracted and follow your game-plan you will gradually pull away from the also rans to create both authority and, one would hope, a decent income.

I have printed this off – never having had a twitter game plan – check out my long-neglected Tweet Adder account and start applying, as of next week.

Read, share, enjoy.

TTFN, Thet Watson.
