Latest scores @ 31/12/2017
Congratulations Stuart! - Yet another remarkable achievement! Stuart has now been our leading predictor in October 2017 and during our latest snapshot of league postions at the end of December 2017.
(Highest Positional Climber)
But watch out Stuart, because there is another Stuart about! Stuart Bruce! - who has risen from his lowly position of 16th at the end of October, and made a mighty leap to 2nd by the end of December 2017. During this time Stuart added an amazing 44 points to his score.
(Leading Female Predictor)
Congratulations again Ann. Despite dropping one place, Ann continues to be our leading female predictor by a country mile.
So what happens next?
On 28/02/2018 the 4th set of Premier League points will be awarded. February will be our next snapshot, and points will be awarded as indicated below. For example, if Leicester City are in 10th place on 28/02/2018, and you predicted that, you will be awarded 10 points. Your points will then be totalled, and you will be able to see how your predictions compare to everyone else's. Other snapshots of the season will take place on 30/04/2018 + 13/05/2018. The person accumulating most points from these snapshots will be awarded the 'Accumulator Award'.
So we await the end of February to discover who is our new leading 'Premier Predictor' for the season so far.
Reminder... How to score points?
10 points --> If you predict the correct positioning of a team (i.e., Leicester City finish 10th and they do = 10 points)
5 points --> If your team is one place above/below your prediction (i.e., Leicester City finish 9th or 11th = 5 points)
1 point --> If your team is two places above/below your prediction (i.e., Leicester City finish 8th or 12th = 1 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:
10 points = 2017/18 Community Shield Winner
20 points = 2017/18 Champions League winner
10 points = English team who progresses furthest in Champions League (10 points each if they reach same point)
20 points = FA Cup Winner
10 points = FA Cup Runner-up
5 points = FA Cup Semi-Finalists
20 points = League Cup Winner
10 points = League Cup Runner-up
5 points = League Cup Semi-Finalists
20 points = Championship winner (60 points if the Wolves!)
10 points = Runner-up + Play-off place winner

Being the best predictor at the end of the 2017/18 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).
