The 2010-11 Prediction League Can't Post or Reply Privately

I'm lead-administrator for Angus' annual predictionfest and encourage all of you, both old and new to come and join in the fun.

You can find the main page at http://www.nlpl.co.uk/PredictionLeague/index.php?cmd=table
and just follow the simple instructions to register your name/team.

It's dead easy to play: predict a result, win 3 points for a perfect guess, 1 point for getting just the H/D/A result correct & nul-points aught else.

We'll choose twentyish matches for you each game-Week, taken from an interesting assortment of possibles, drawn from Steps1-4 in the main part, but 'plumped-up' with a good helping of Step5-6 games and lots of Cup/Trophy/Vase matches.
Expect 800-1000 predictions to be made over the whole season.

Names/Teams are placed in a league table, the order determined by most points first and secondarily by 'goal difference'.

"How," I hear you say, "does goal difference get calculated?".
OK - you score one goal for each correctly guessed team score, multiplied by that score... in other words, correctly predict Team A to hit four goals - you get four goals-for. Strangely, correctly predict Team B to score nil goals and you do get a goals-for amount... but unfortunately that'd be zero. Shame! lol
Goals against are summed from the differences between each of your guessed team scores and their real scores. Going back to Team A v. Team B (from above) @ 4-0... if you'd guessed 3-1 - your GF/GA column would be altered by 0/2 respectively.
Had you predicted 4-2 instead, you'd have gotten 4/2 respectively in your GF/GA columns.

You'll quickly get the hang of it!

For the SERIOUS COMPETITOR, there's an alternative 'simple' league table available - which ranks all players by their average points-per-game record - and is the real skill monitor.
To have your record accepted in this table, you must have completed a certain percentage of possible predictions at every stage... 99% in Week1; 98% in Week2; 97% in Week3, etc. to the last (usually) Week41 @ 59% of predictions made.

It is possible to fall-in/fall-out of qualification to be ranked in this league table, the important thing to ensure yourself a Week41 rank!


Hoping for a hundred or more of you to sign up.

Reporting from Angus - that he's very pleased indeed with the number of entrants in the first week's fixtures.

...and this is also a reminder that it is never too late to join in all the fun - if you are brave enough to pit yourself against each week's 32 fixtures!
