Predictor League is BACK
With BTG still missing in action these days then I am happy to continue to run with the Predictor League.
It is time to put aside our differences and unite together to see who can be crowned champion Predictor for season 2018/19.
2 In A Row (Double Single) Defending champion is GHODFATHER
Each week there will be six fixtures for the weekend ahead and on accession there may be a cup weekend. There will be set midweek cards which will count as double weeks with the weekend before.
Any re-arranged games are unlikely to be counted. During the course of the season there will be at least SEVEN guaranteed double fixture game weeks.
Cup games are scores at 90 minutes. ET and penalties will not count unless otherwise stated.
Only changes to the Predictor League this season is to the scoring. The scoring will be higher this season. This will allow anyone who is trailing a bit an opportunity to have a great week and get up the table.
A correct prediction for the result of a match will gain you 10 points. If you get the margin of the score correct but not the correct score you will get 5 points. If you pick the correct outcome then you will get 3 points.
During the season you have two jokers to play. A joker will get you double points on that chosen game week. It is up to you when you want to use it but it must be clearly stated at the time of making your predictions that you are using your joker. Last season using a joker in a double game week was the difference in winning the title..
Predictions must be made before kick off. If there is an early match and that is missed then predictions made for the remainder of the matches will be accepted as long as they are made before kick off.
In the event that someone predicts twice I will take the most recent predictions. This allows you to make early predictions to get something on the board and then amend closer to the time.
If you miss a game week you will be awarded the lowest score that was scored in that game week. If you miss four weeks in a row you will be deemed to be no longer taking part. Across the season I will award a maximum of 3 lowest scores for missed weeks, anymore than that and the player will score zero on an subsequent misses.
If anybody has any queries then raise them at this stage. Hopefully all of that makes sense though.
The Admins have yet again been kind enough to put up prizes for the competition this year
1st = £50 in Amazon vouchers
2nd = £30 in Amazon vouchers
3rd = £10 in Amazon vouchers
I will try to keep a few weeks of fixtures up for anyone going away at any point. You do not need to predict all at once.
