2018-2019 Premier Predictors
The season is now complete, the marks have been calculated, and we have winners!
So congratulations to Glen Roberts (Actual) winner, and Stan Fellows (Accumulator) winner! But just look how close it was at the top for the prize of our engraved trophies!
Well done to Adrian Guest, who just as in 2017/18, was runner-up in the Actual competition. He was followed by a spirited late run by Ann Jones, who finished in 3rd place. Remember, the 'Actual' table looks at the final positions of each real football team, and compares it with the Premier Predictors predictions.
Well done also to Sandra Roberts, who was runner-up in the Accumulators competition. Sandra was followed by Esther's Dad, Alec Williams, who finished in 3rd place. Remember, the 'Accumulators' table compares the actual league table after the last Premier League matches in August 2018, October 2018, December 2018, February 2019, April 2019 and May 2019, with each 'Premier Predictor's predictions. These comparisons after each of the months indicated above, result in each Premier Predictor accumulating points for each of these months.
If you would like to see how you progressed through the season, please see the tables below. Remember the final tables are above:
Reminder... How you scored points:
20 points --> If you predict the correct positioning of a team (i.e., Leicester City finish 10th and they do = 20 points)
10 points --> If your team is one place above/below your prediction (i.e., Leicester City finish 9th or 11th = 10 points)
5 points --> If your team is two places above/below your prediction (i.e., Leicester City finish 8th or 12th = 5 point)
-5 points --> If your team are 5 places above/below your prediction (i.e., Leicester finish 5th or 15th = -5 points)
-10 points --> If your team are 10 places above/below your prediction
Points were awarded as follows for predicting the following:
20 points = 2018/19 Community Shield Winner
30 points = 2018/19 Champions League winner
20 points = English team who progresses furthest in Champions League (20 points each if they reach same point). Only 30 points if an English team wins the Champions League.
30 points = FA Cup Winner
20 points = FA Cup Runner-up
10 points = FA Cup losing Semi-Finalists
30 points = League Cup Winner
20 points = League Cup Runner-up
10 points = League Cup Semi-Finalists
30 points = Championship winner
10 points = Runner-up + Play-off place winner

How do I win?
There are two ways to win:
Being the best predictor at the end of the 2018/19 football season wins the ‘Premier Predictor Award’
At the end of August / October / December / February / April / May we will have prizes for being the winner to that point in time (i.e., February – prize for the best predictor so far in the season). Points from each month (August / October / December / February / April / May) will be added together for the ‘Accumulator Prize’.
