Max Melbourne Prediction League

Recommended Posts

Time for the first of my competitions to determine the winner of the sponsored kits. 

This is the first time we have done this in the Championship. Previously the competitions have involved making predictions for 30 matches. With less teams in the league we would have to run the comp. for 6 round of matches to emulate that. I think that 5 rounds of matches are enough so we will be predicting the results of 25 games. All details below. No changes from the tried and tested formula. Most of you will be familiar with the format.

The Players

Fawlty Towers
German Jag

The Rules

Predict the scores for 25 Championship games.

Three points awarded for predicting the correct scores, one point for predicting the correct result. Predict the correct score in a Jags win to collect a bonus point.

The competition will begin with the fixtures due to be played on Saturday 3 November and will conclude with the games scheduled on Saturday 8 December.

One entry for each £25 paid. Some members may, therefore, have more than one entry.

I will send out a list of the fixtures weekly, by PM, with a date and time that entries need to be submitted by. If anybody is going to be out of contact during any of this period, let me know. Predictions can be submitted for all the games at any time, so no need to miss out.

After the deadline each week, all the predictions will be published on the forum thread. If I don't have your entry by then, no points will be accrued that week.

After the final game each week the updated league table will be published on the forum.

When predicting the scores for the last round of matches I will ask also for a first goal time for a match that I will select.

In the event of two or more players being level at the end of the competition the following steps will be used to break the tie.

1. The most correct scores.
2. The earliest correct score in the competition.
3. Total number of goals predicted is closest to the number of goals actually scored.
4. First goal time is closest to the actual first goal time, as published at spfl.co.uk. If the match score is 0 - 0, the closest time to 90 wins.

Hope I’m wrong but where does the confidence in a first away win come from? I’ll be listening on Jagzone from Norway and hoping you’re all right :fan:
