    Your original formula in 'Fixtures/Predictions'!I5 is

    Formula: copy to clipboard

    and it returns #VALUE!

    If I change it to

    Formula: copy to clipboard
    Please Login or Register  to view this content.

    it returns Adam.

    Why are you using references like I1:1 rather than just I1?

    If you want to use an array formula in row 5 from I5 right, there are merged cells, e.g, I5:L5. Unwise, to say the least, to try to use array formulas in ranges containing merged cells.
