Predictor League is BACK
It is time to put aside our differences and unite together to see who can be crowned champion Predictor for season 2020/21
Defending Champion is Earl who had a healthy lead prior to lockdown
Each week there will be six fixtures for the weekend ahead and on occasion 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 double fixture game weeks - TBC
Cup games are scores at 90 minutes. ET and penalties will not count unless otherwise stated.
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.
NEW BONUS POINTS
Anyone who gets a clean sweep of results will gain a bonus of 20 points. Rewarding strong weeks where possible.
6 game weeks only. Where a game is postponed the bonus points will be reduced to 10 for 5 out of 5 correct predictions. Any further postponements will remove any bonus points for that week.
Double weeks require all 12 results to be correct for 20 bonus points. One postponement requires 11 out of 11 for a bonus 10 points. Any further postponements will remove any bonus points for that week.
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. Recently using a joker in a double game week has been the difference in winning the title..**If you get a clean sweep with a Joker you will NOT get double the bonus points, only double the gameweek scores**
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.
Double week predictions must be in by the main bulk of games in the first half of the fixtures. (Otherwise it may as well be two separate weeks)
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.
Prizes - TBC
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. I will avoid Friday night fixtures this season where possible as that is where most predictions were forgotten.
