Who wants a prediction style competition?

We did one at work last year.

You pick

Top 3 in the Premier League

Bottom 3

Top 3 in the Championship, League 1 , League 2, Scottish SPL

You get 0 points for the correct prediction and a point for each position away from your prediction. E.g. if you pick Spurs for 1st place and they finish 6th you get 5 points, pick Arsenal for 2nd and they finish 4th, you get 2 points, pick Man City for 3rd and they finish 1st, you get 2 points.

You get -10 for picking the winners of the League Cup and -10 for the FA Cup and -10 for the Champions League

Lowest scorer wins.

I'd be up for that. Entries in by the start of the season or by close of the transfer window?

Man City 1st

Last hour of the transfer window... "Aguerro sold to Real Madrid". Dammit.

Man City 4th

We had a similar prediction game on here last season, but it was for the full PL table. Can do that for this season again. Let's have a new thread for it.

The Premier League's easier to predict.

Top six will include Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City, Arsenal, and probably Liverpool and Spurs. Bottom should be Leicester, Norwich, Bournemouth.

Our work one spans the leagues. Scotland will include Celtic being first though.

I assume that stuff with his son can't have helped matters?

So that's 4 teams starting the season in the Prem with a new manager. Anymore to go before August?

I don't think we should be surprised, he was obviously a difficult employee to handle.

All those betting on Rodgers to get the sack first must be gutted! ;-)
