    With the Fixtures now out its time for an update for both the prediction league for the upcoming season and the Virtual prediction league we have been running

    Schedule

    After tonight's match we will still have 14 matches left to play in the 'Better Than Bowyer' Virtual prediction league (or if we bottle it more as we will have playoffs) so it will still be going on when the actual season starts.

    To prevent confusion with the Actual Prediction league we will be moving to the following Schedule when the season starts

    Wednesday
    18:59 - Entry for the current Virtual Premier League match closes
    19:00 - Next Better Than Bowyer Episode released
    19:01 - Entry Thread for the Next Match Uploaded

    Saturdays
    14:59 - Entry for the current Real 20/21 Prediction League match closes
    15:45 - Next Entry Thread for the Real 20/21 Prediction League opens

    There may be exceptions to this schedule for the Weeks Beginning (Assuming Monday is day 1, not Sunday as some people use)

    Week Beginning 19th October Week Beginning 26th October
    Week Beginning 2nd November

    This is because there are Tuesday Night League games. I haven't decided how best to deal with that yet. We may just a 3 week gap there and try and catch up between the Southend game on the 3rd November and the next league match on the 14th or I'll try and work out the best way to fit them in with the least confusion, (Maybe just bump them a day to Thursdays)

    20/21 Prediction League

    All of last seasons sponsors have agreed to roll there prizes over. So everyone from 1st to 25th will get a prize. There is a possibility of a few other prizes also being added.

    And if anyone wants to provide a prize either anonymously as some forum members have or publicly drop me a PM. The same if you know anyone with a business who might want to provide a prize in exchange for getting a sponsors spotlight post about them and mentioned in all Prediction league posts and also regular shout outs on twitter

    As I suggested in the other post we will changing the scoring slightly. We will not be giving bonus points for the best predictions each game as working that out adds complexity and causes delays in the results being posted. We will however give anyone who gets a perfect prediction bonus points (Perfect being you get the result, score and ALL the City scorers correct)

    I will open the thread for the Colchester game sometime next week. You can submit your entries once its open and if a new signing is made or the team is announced and it impacts your prediction just submit a new entry. The script will always take the last entry you make as your selected entry

    Can I suggest the £100 cash prize is bumped up the list? It's currently below replica shirts that cost around half the value of that prize and about a dozen city mugs so doesn't make much sense at the minute.

    Says at the bottom of the second post that people pick what they want, rather than 14th place getting £100.

    As @XCIV_Bantam@XCIV_Bantam pointed out they aren't really in any order. If you come first you get a free choice. If they really want they could select 1 month premium sub or anything else on the list rather than the 'biggest value' item. 2nd will then get to choose from what's left and so on. It just seemed the fairest way to to it otherwise you could end up with the winner getting the 1 prize on the list they had the least use for (Plus it saved me trying to decide if something being city related makes a prize more appealing than a non-city item in the same price range lol )

    There will be a new sub forum for this years competition and there will be an entry thread for each game. You just have to follow the instructions on the correct format to enter and then reply on the thread with the prediction.

    The thread for the first game will be up sometime next week
