2018-2019 Premier Predictors
Each person has carefully chosen where they think each Premier League team will finish at the end of the season. They have also made other predictions about the Championship and Cup competitions.
So with all the August, October, December and now February 2019 Premier League results known, let's see how each 'Premier Predictor' is getting on. This is done by comparing the actual league table after the last Premier League matches in August, October, December, and February 2019, with each 'Premier Predictor's predictions. The results, which count towards the 'Accumulator Trophy' can be seen by clicking the links below:

Well done to Stan Fellows, whose predictions for the top 7 premier league teams were 100% accurate. In fact, Stan did so well that he scored a mamouth 220 points in the February 2019 snapshot. This catapulted him to 1st place in our Premier Predictors table. Doing nearly as well, William Leeper, who scored 210 points, leapt into 2nd spot. Third spot is shared between Alec Williams (Esther's Dad), and Jacob Slater, who have both achieved 420 points.
So what happens next?
We wait until the end of April 2019, when our next snapshot is taken. Each Premier Predictor's April points will be added to their August, October, December and February points. These points count towards the Accumulator Trophy.
Reminder... How to score 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 will also be 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
