Theo Walcott for England u-21s (v Moldova u-21s), 15 August 2006


Good lord. Is it that time again, so soon....?

CUAS Premiership Predictions League


Well, as the remaining champion (!) it is time to launch the 2006/7 Premiership Predictions competition. Wahey. Wahoo. (etc). I would also like to extend this invitation to everyone to participate - the more the merrier. Come on, you know you want to.

Slight changes to this years scoring. The points remain the same - 1 point for the correct outcome and 3 points for the correct score - but in order to try and keep the whole thing a bit closer, and, more importantly, to not penalise anyone horrifically if they miss the odd week, I am going to implement a sort of Formula One scoring system.

Whoever scores the most points in any given week will get 10 points. Second scores 8 points, third 6 points, fourth 5 points, fifth 4 points and so on down to one point. Anyone lower than eighth will get a big fat zero.

I am hoping that this should mean the whole thing will not be so much of a "whoever plays every week will win" stroll as missing a week is only equivalent to having a bad week.

Make sense?

Without further ado, let's get this show on the road.

Arsenal v Aston Villa
Bolton v Tottenham
Everton v Watford
Newcastle v Wigan
Portsmouth v Blackburn
Reading v Middlesbrough
Sheff Utd v Liverpool
West Ham v Charlton
Chelsea v Man City
Man Utd v Fulham

Good luck, folks. And here's to a non-Chelsea dominated season.
