2018-2019 Premier Predictors
In 2018/19 we have 24 '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 2018 Premier League results now 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 2018, 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 Stuart Williams, who is joint top with Joe Bradley (as in Joe & Betty Bradley). Then we have Esther’s Dad, Alec Williams, joint 3rd with our leading female, Sandra Roberts. Next we have Jacob Slater (overtaking his brother) joint 5th alongside Trevor Amphlett. But way down we have the strongest Premier Predictor… our very own David Barlow! - who is so strong that he’s holding-up the rest of the league in last place. Good job David goes to the gym regularly!
So what happens next?
We wait until the end of December 2018, when our next snapshot is taken. Each Premier Predictor's December points will be added to their August + October 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

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 / 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 / May) will be added together for the ‘Accumulator Prize’.
