It's back for another year, the forum prediction league. Most of you will know what it is, but some of the new members may not be so familiar. Many thanks to Evasive & wfcwarehouse for managing last year.
There are a couple of changes so please all read the following.
What is it?
Every week there will be 5 matches chosen, from different divisions in England, Scotland and beyond, and all you have to do is predict what you think the score of each match will be. The fixtures will go up on a Sunday/Monday (where possible) and we would ask that all predictions be finalised by Friday evenings at Midnight. Any change to the deadline will be explicitly stated in the fixtures thread.
The Scoring System:
If you correctly predict the result and score (e.g Holland 0 Spain 1) you will earn 10 pts.
If you correctly predict the result but incorrectly predict the score (e.g Holland 1 Spain 2) you will earn 5 pts.
If you don't get the right result but you correctly guess the number of goals either team scores (e.g Holland 3 Spain 1 ) you will get 2 pts.
There will be a running league table updated weekly, so that you can keep a tally of your progess over the course of the season.
Once the comp is under way, there will be extra points gathered for predictiing The winners of each league, the FA & League cups and the number of rounds WFC play in each. This replaces meisters millions as I've now got a job to spend some time on
Predictions should be made with your forum username and the scores separated by hyphens e.g. 2-1 Each game on a new line.
If you miss an entry, then we will automatically use the predictions you made for the previous week in the hope that you might pick up a point or two
The competition will run for the duration of the season, and serial non-entrants will be disqualified at the decisions of the moderating team
If you want to sign up for the 2011/2012 Prediction League, please do so by posting your first predictions in the week 1 thread below.
The deadline for signup will be Wednesday 4th August to give Wfcwarehouse and I enough time to make sure everybody gets a reference number etc before the first week's deadline.
Prizes are £50, £25, £10, £5
I might chuck in some orns also
