Rules include the controversial "Slam Dunc Rule" introduced last season after our regular Carling Cup fiasco. Namely in cup competitions the score predicted is the one at the end of extra time if it is played.

The rules for this competition are quite simple.

The concept is that you predict the scoreline for each of our Premier League, Europa League, Capital One League Cup and FA Cup games. For each fixture, a new thread will be created for you to state what you think the outcome will be. Naturally, there are a few rules, which I have listed below:


2 points are awarded for predicting the win, draw or loss correctly. A further point is awarded if one half of the scoreline is correct. Should you get both halves of the scoreline right, you would receive 2 points for the win/loss/draw, 2 points for both sides of the scoreline, and a further bonus of 1 point for predicting the match exactly.
Also, if you fail to predict the win/loss/draw, but still get one side of the scoreline correct, you receive 1 point.

You can change your prediction by editing your post in the corresponding thread at any time before kick-off. Anyone who alters their prediction after kick-off will be disqualified from that round.

There will be a monthly winner in addition to the full-season one, to encourage people to join in partway through. Incidentally...

Anyone joining after the first 5 games will be awarded the average number of points accrued by all competitors except the top 25%, and can of course still win the monthly competitions even if it's too late for the main one.
In the league table, participants are listed in order of points scored, then by the number of predictions (people with more predictions take precedence), and then by alphabetical order, although this is considered to be a tie.

In order to enter, simply make a prediction and as long as I don't go momentarily blind, you will be included in the next league table, which I intend to update after each match.

Are we still having that rule "that's the score they put in" even if its 24 hours too late?

Ha ha Slam Dunc, only I will be allowed to do that this season.

Any other rule change proposals you have in the pipeline or are you going to wait until after the event again then appeal for a rule change to match your prediction .................
