    Changes from Actual prediction league

    There is just one change to the regular prediction league but its a big one.

    To make calculations easier There will be no bonus points awarded

    This means you don't need to provide the tiebreak minute of the first goal (or if 0-0 first booking)

    Virtual World Setup

    We are using Football Manager 2020. It is using the Winter Transfer Update so all teams have the players they had on February 1st 2020

    All English teams have been placed under a Transfer Embargo to prevent any transfers through the season.

    While I will have to play the Cup Matches only the League Matches will count

    How To Play

    A prediction thread will be posted on this forum for the upcoming game. This will provide the 'kick-off' time (Usually around 48 hours after the thread is posted). The thread will also include both teams Lineups and some additional information on the match to help you make a decision

    On this match thread, you just need to post your match prediction in the following format

    For example
    No entry received AFTER the stated kick-off time will be accepted. The match video will then be posted on the match thread for you to watch.

    As soon as the Match video goes up the thread for the next match will be posted

    Point System

    Points are awarded as follows
    • Correct Result – 2 Points
    • Correct Score - 3 Points
    • Correct Scorer – 1 Point
    Penalty Points. If you predict City scoring more than 5 or more goals you will get a penalty of -1 for each incorrect scorer. This is to prevent abuse by naming all 11 starters as scorers for guaranteed points.
