Rio Ferdinand for Leeds Utd (v Deportivo La Coruna), 4 April 2001

The CUAS Predictions League

Firstly, a big "hello" to everyone at the Guardian who is reading this blog.

Hello! *waves*

The reason I mention this is that despite having lifted ideas for articles and blogs from this site on more than one occasion (famously here), they have this season decided to launch their "PickTheScore" game. Decide for yourself if it sounds familiar:


Pick the Score, Guardian Unlimited's new online football game, is free to enter and incredibly easy to play. Simply log in each week and predict the results of upcoming Premier League matches.

Hmmm. Reminds me of something.....

You can play on your own, if you're into that kind of thing, or create a mini-league to go up against your best friends...

So, a league table of people playing against one another. Interesting.

Once you've registered, click on "enter your predictions" to choose your picks for upcoming Premier League matches. You get one point for a correct result, and three points for getting both the result and score right.

Good lord. Anyone think that sounds just a little bit too much like the game we've run here for, er, two seasons....?

Cheeky b*stards. (this is from the paper that has got the right hump that it's daily irreverent football e-mail The Fiver is now being, er, copied by the Times who are sending a daily irreverent football e-mail at 4pm...)

Anyway, the CUAS Predictions League hath returneth in the same incarnation as previously. One point for the correct result, three for the correct score. Wildcards aplenty, grand prix style scoring and El Tel is now Shane is the man to beat.

Without further ado:

Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool
Bolton 0-0 Newcastle
Derby 2-2 Portsmouth
Everton 2-0 Wigan
Middlesbrough 0-1 Blackburn
Sunderland 1-2 Tottenham
West Ham 3-1 Man City
Arsenal 2-0 Fulham
Chelsea 2-0 Birmingham
Man Utd 2-1 Reading

and how will some of the promoted clubs fare in the big league?

Charlton 3-0 Scunthorpe
Luton 2-0 Hartlepool
Morecambe 1-1 Barnet

Thought I'd give it a go this season. My lack of knowledge of the higher divisions will, I'm sure, soon become abundantly clear.

Expect to expunge my playing record mid-season, as I go off in a point-less huff.
