Prediction League 2017-2018

Post by Suffolkposh » 03 Jul 2017, 15:27

HI ALL, got a spare afternoon to catch up on posts. Thought I would get this posted.

I am prepared to run the Prediction League again on the same terms as last year.
I will not be able to do this for the friendlies but will be able to start on 1st day of the new season i.e 5th August
One question - Would people like this to be for League One games only or to include for all cup games as well (As has been done in the past)
[May I suggest we include only the League Cup (Carabao Cup) and the FA Cup.]

For the upcoming season Prediction League the rules will be -
You are required to predict the score of each Posh game and also the Posh scorers.
A. Correct result 5 points (win lose draw regardless of the score)
B. Correct Posh score 3 points
C. Correct opponent score 2 points
Maximum points 10 plus --
D. A bonus of 1 point for each correct Posh goalscorer.
E. A bonus of one point if you predict Posh will score 0. In other words you get a bonus point for predicting no Posh goalscorers and there are none.
F. No random bonus point rounds
For cup games etc the correct score will be the score at 90 minutes. Extra time and penalty shoot outs will not count.
Entries can be submitted (or changed) at any time prior to one hour before kick off. This is a slight change on previous years

Any other thoughts are appreciated.

I think that you can quite happily leave out friendlies and the Watsername Trophy

The new season prediction league is now open. First match is posted below.
I will endeavour to post each match for prediction one week before the match is due to be played,
All predictions must be made prior to one hour before the relevant kick-off.
Changes can be made to any prediction as long as that complies with the above one houe rule.

Lets hope we can get a good following for this year and the best of luck to all those who take part.

Checkatrade matches WILL NOT be included

I'm pretty sure I predicted 2-4 for this game. It doesn't affect the score but just to get it right.
