1. Vålerenga
VIF has never been better, and have a great chance of winning the league this season. Now also with Amund Skiri from AaFK, and other new players Ishizaki, Muri, Rony Johnsen, Hulsker, and Christian Grindheim. The loss of Erik Hagen and Jørgen Jalland shouldn't be too serious.

2. Rosenborg
This is the perfect season to predict another team than Rosenborg on top. I would love to see for example Vålerenga or Brann do it, and Rosenborg has shown clear signs of weakness lately. However, Rosenborg always makes it in the end, and when they even won last season it's going to take a tremendous effort for any team to beat team. I think VIF might just do it, but it's going to be a fight until the end. They have strenghtened their squad with Ødegaard, Kvarme and Koppinen.

3. Brann
Third last season, third again in 2005. Brann has been strenghtened with Martin Andresen, but weakened with the loss of Olofinjana. Brann will definetly have a strong season, but it doesn't seem quite enough to fight for the gold.

4. Lillestrøm
New people in charge of the team, some good players have left, some good players have joined. Afer finishing 7th three seasons in a row, it seems like LSK have got something going now. Good players in all areas of the play, and above all a high team spirit, and a go that has gotten LSK far before. This year's outsider.

5. Viking
Usually predicted lower, but with a strong coach (Roy Hodgson) that has finally gotten a grip on things, a new stadium last season that they never quite made their own, and some good signings, I think they will have a fine season.

6. Lyn
Lots of players in and out for Lyn. This can go up or down, but I feel like they are doing some smart things in Lyn. They got 6th last season, and I think they might get the same in 2005.

7. Odd Grenland
Odd is turning into a middle of the table team, and it seems likely they will be the same this season.

8. Tromsø
Severely weakened from the start of last season. It's going to be a tough season for Tromsø, but their Royal League experience might help them in the start of the season.

9. Hamarkameratene
Incredible season in 2004. They might suffer a backlash in 2005, but as long as Ståle Solbakken runs the club with his strong tactical mind, it is unlikely that they will get relegated.

10. Fredrikstad
Drillo is back as a coach, and this can go towards the top, or be a disaster. I boringly predict them on a 10th place, but I realize that FFK might be the surprise either upwards or downwards on the table in 2005. It's highly uncertain how good they will do.

11. Aalesund FK
Almost everyone has predicted AaFK in relegation. The new stadium, the new players, the ambitious and noisy fans, the longing for success, all reasons why AaFK should survive in 2005.

12. Molde
Molde seems weaker than in a long time, they have lost players and a coach. However, they still beat AaFK convincingly last weekend, and have gotten a very famous and experienced coach in Bo Johansson.

13. Start
The most arrogant team in Norway? It certainly seems like it if you listen to some of the Start fans or club leaders. Start has been strenghtened, and they did have a very strong season in 2004. Nevertheless, I think the Norwegian top league might be a bit much for the club and their current players.

14. Bodø/Glimt
Bodø just barely survived last season, and do not seem to have improved their squad at all since then, possibly they have even weakened it. I think that may not be enough, and Bodø might get relegated.

1. Rosenborg :(
Their squad is really good this year. Especially their attack. Their headcoach isn't the best in the league, but with Eggen watching over his shoulder and probably leading a lot of the trainings, the new recruits will be whipped into shape and learn the "Rosenborg-style". Even if they don't lead the league inthe summer, they'll be able to buy the players needed to win it in the end.

2. Brann
Brann have been strengthened since last year, they were among the best teams last fall, and now they'll have their fresh signings for a whole season. Andresen will bring something Brann has lacking for the last few seasons as well, the need to win. I've seen him turn around games on his own when he's been about to lose, while Brann is famous for outplaying their opponents, only to lose 2 or 3 points in the last few minutes. His fighting spirit will serve them well, but their bench and goalkeeper isn't top standard, which will be their downfall.

3. Vålerenga
They got outplayed by Brann in the Royal League, but managed to save a draw. Managing to get points on a bad day is a good thing, being so completely undressed isn't. They have a few profiles that are very important to them, but Gashi will probably have to serve some jailtime and might be sold this year. Iversen has been praised highly, but hasn't performed well enough to warrant it. Ishizaghi is a strong strengthening of their team, but otherwise they are pretty much the same squad that struggled for most of last year. When they lose their first game, I doubt they'll manage to get back into the winning spree again.

4. Viking
The best coach in the Tippeliga, Roy Hodgson, has managed to shape the team into what he wants them to be. They have a strong squad, even without the star-players that the other top teams have to rely on.

5. Lyn
A lot of strong new players that will have a good impact on the league. Lyn got a team that can beat anyone in the Tippeliga, but most of them are yougn talents, which will probably be a bit inconsistent. Their most experienced players aren't as good as they used to be, and they'll most likely have to sell Al-Habsi sometime this year, which will seriously weaken them. He was the second best goalie in the league behind Arason last year.

6. Odd Grenland
They have a decent squad, with a few match-winners like Holtan and Occean. Would have predicted them lower if not for the fact that the rest of the teams really aren't very good.

7. Lillestrøm
Lillestrøm always ends up 7th, no point in predicting them in another place. They've gotten a new coach giving them some German-style discipline, but they lack the quality players to make a difference in the league.

8. HamKam
Efficient, boring and defensive. HamKam will be hard to beat, but don't have the quality to win a lot of games either. Will be taken more serious than last season, which won't turn out luckily for them.

9. Tromsø
Lost a lot of keyplayers, and haven't really replaced them. Their strongest player, the goalie Borch, is out for quite awhile with a broken hand. Bernier and Essediri will give a lot of teams trouble, but knowing Tromsø's bad economy, they'll probably sell them as soon as someone give them an offer. Årst is too inconsistent to be a reliable goalscorer.

10. Start
Start actually got a very good team, but mostly young talents that will struggle to maintain a high standard for a whole season. Borgersen have returned, and new signing Nyarko will strengthen their midfield a lot. Coach Nordlie has never managed to really make it in the tippeliga, and this might be his only chance to establish himself. I think his dedication and belief in himself will be the determining factor for Start.

11. Molde
Molde's only good signing since last year's disappointing performance is the troublemaker Stian Ohr. They've lost both Ljung and Gustafsson who might very well have been their best defensive players. They've lost their most important attacking player, Magne Hoseth. I think their best hope for avoiding relegation is Bo Johansson, the experienced coach needs to perform a miracle, and he might very well be the person for it.

12. Bodø/Glimt
Have lost Gåre, who was/is a very good coach and important to the team. Their new coach, Ola Haldorsen, have no experience apart from having been a player in B/G for ages. They've lost Hanssen, who was among their best players last season, and not really brought in any new players. I think they'll struggle to avoid relegation, but will probably make it, if only to annoy me.

13. Fredrikstad
Drillo has never impressed as a club coach, it's a totally different ballgame that NT football, and I doubt he'll shine in Fredrikstad. They have signed a few new players that have tried to make it in the tippeliga before, but failed at their previous clubs. I see no reason they should suddenly make it this year.

14. Aalesund
Has strengthened the team a lot with KAOS, Adin Brown and M'Baye, but the former two are quite injury-prone, and M'Baye didn't convince the last time he was in the tippeliga. Unless Fjørtoft has a great season, I don't see much hope for AaFK's survival. Adin Brown is a bit like Opdal, some great saves and some big fumbles. That's not what a team that needs to fight for every point want in their goal, they need security. They ended up 10 points behind Start last season, and I think the strength between those two teams is about the same. Which unfortunately will lead to a relegation :(

I hope Aalesund will put your prediction to shame, and it will be interesting to see your reasoning for putting them last, although it's quite predictable as I've seen many other such predictions. Good luck with Brann getting second, but for once I think you and your fellow Brann fans could be right in your undying optimism for the club. You really seem to have something good going on. :)

I hope they will as well, would much rather have Molde and Bodø/Glimt relegated than Aafk. I really don't like those teams, although most of the worst players (Hoseth, Hulsker, Fostervold, Berg Hestad) are gone from Molde, I'm still biased against them. And I really don't like B/G's style of trying to draw out the time by spending more time on the ground whining than playing footy.

Except the fact that they were the second best team of all the league during the latter half of last season? :googly:


My prediction (far shorter):
1. Rosenborg (new players, the team seems more solid than last season when the defence was shaking. Improvement is not enough, but I think it'll hold)

2. Vålerenga (improved team, new players and a bigger squad. Will challenge Rosenborg for real)

3. Viking (a good manager in Hogson will improve the team and it seems very stabile. Won't let in many goals this season)

4. Brann (the "bergensere" are always champions before the league starts. I think presssure will be on if the results are not too good. Still a very strong squad)

(gap)

5. Fredrikstad (have gotten many good players and was as mentioned the 2nd best team of the fall 2004. Drillo has been unlucky with an increadable amount of injuries but will get used to the pace of the Tippeliga after some month in the game)

6. Lyn (normally a stabile team and has also had improvements in players like Huusku, Mikel, Leonhardsen and Tessem. A good mixture of youngsters and experienced players. All their young players have gotten one year older. ;))

7. Ham-Kam (yet another stabile team. Stability is important and Solbakken has managed to keep his players from last season and added a few new ones)

8. Lillestrøm (new managers, ambitions, but are suffering from a deficit from last season. Will be very "up and down" I think)

(small gap)

9. Tromsø (unexperienced managers, but a pretty good squad will place TIL at the middle of the table)

10. Start (have improved from last season and has a very good coach in Nordlie. A good mixture of players will keep the promoted team from relegation)

11. Odd Grenland (the loss of Deila (Viking), Rambekk (LSK), Wiig (FFK), Aas (OB), Muller (LSK) will prove fatal. Have to struggle to keep their place with a very small squad)

12. Aalesund (havn't improved their team by much, but AaFK plays in front of an entusiastic audience at their new stadium. Can take advantage of their artificial pitch at Color Line and save the place)

13. Molde (MFK have lost players and are in serious trouble. A small squad and getting a manager who's 'past it' very very late will prove to be fatal for MFK)

14. Bodø/Glimt (have not improved their team and possesses the smallest squad in the TL. Played play-off last season when the league was weaker, and they have not improved since that after losing André Hanssen. I don't think we'll see B/G in the TL after this season.)

Yes, I think I'll try to start a prediction league again this season. I'm still thinking about which version I should do though.

1. The very Norwegian version - both Tippeligaen and the Norwegian 1st division

2. The Scandinavian/Nordic version - Tippeligaen, Allsvenskan, and possibly other Nordic leagues.

3. The Tippeliga version - just predicting the Tippeliga.

There's also a question about how to do it:

a) Two points for each correct result, one for each correct winner (or draw). F.ex. If I predict 1-1 and the match ends 2-2, I get one point.

b) 1x2 - just pick the correct winners. Can include one special 2 point match with result prediction each week.

Well, I don't really have any preferances on what leagues should be included. Of course, just having the tippeliga would benefit me, but the old version with both the tippeliga and allsvenskan would be fine as well if the Swedes are interested in it.

I don't think predicting the correct result got anything to do with a contest. That's more akin to lottery. A flaky ref awarding a penalty completely changes the game. The best team usually wins a game, but by how much is completely random imo.

I agree a bit on the scores, but if we just have Tippeligaen, that's 7 matches each week, a bit little maybe?

At the very least we need a tiebreaker with scorepredicting, so that we will have a winner each week. If two people both have 5 correct predictions, the one with the most accurate tiebreaker would win. If both use the same tiebreaker, the one who posted it first will be that week's winner.

OK, so we'll use the 1-x-2 system with a tiebreaker. Now the final question is what leagues. While this is a Nordic forum, I'm leaning more towards a Norwegian prediction league, either just Tippeligaen or both Tippeligaen and the First Division. Which one do you prefer?

Well, we have just 5 games per week in Austria. And the PL works out fine! ;)

Yes, but you also predict scores, which differentiates between the people predicting a bit more.

But ok, let's try out a strictly Tippeligaen prediction this season, with 1-x-2, with one match where we will predict the score. The tiebreaker will help decide who wins each week, but will not involve extra points.

There will be 7 matches, a home win prediction should be posted with a 1, a draw prediction with an x, and an away win prediction with a 2.

Like this:
A vs B 1
C vs D 2
E vs F x
G vs H 2
I vs J 1
K vs L 2
M vs N 1 (tiebreaker: 1-1)

The tiebreaker is set at the beginning of each week, and it's important that everyone predicts the result in that match and not another match.

A new thread will be made each week, and when the round is over and counted, the thread will be merged with this one. Then a new prediction thread will be started for the next round, etc.

The Norwegian prediction league 2005 round 1

Predict with 1x2 system. 1 for a home win, x for a draw, 2 for an away win.

Sunday 10/4 (1. round)
Lyn - Fredrikstad (18:00)
Odd Grenland - Tromsø (18:00)
Ham-Kam - Vålerenga (20:15)
Rosenborg - Aalesund (18:00)
Viking - Bodø/Glimt (18:00)
Start - Lillestrøm (18:00) - tiebreaker (predict the result for this match)

Monday (1. round)
Brann - Molde (19:00)

Each round will have a tiebreaker, where we will predict the winner of the match. There will be no extra points for the tiebreaker, but it will help decide who is the winner of each week when there is a tie in regular predictions.

There will be two results lists, one for the overall leader in correct predictions, and for the weekly winners. At the end of the season the one with most correct predictions will be the main champion, while the one with most weekly wins, will be the "cup" champion.
