    Alrighty then, I'm going to attempt to bring back an old classic thread that I used to run back on TowersTimes, the football prediction league.

    Instead of running the league over the course of a season, I've decided on the format of having the prediction league take place over the course of the year. That means that it'll include matches from the second half of the 19/20 league season, the Euros in the Summer, and the first half of the 20/21 league season. The winner is whoever is top of the table at the end of December 2020.

    Rules are simple, each week I will list six fixtures for you all to predict (during the league season this will consist of three from the Premier League and one from each EFL division). Simply guess the exact score in each to enter.

    - One point is awarded for guessing the correct outcome of a game (home/away/draw)
    - Three points (two bonus points) are on offer for correctly predicting the exact scoreline (2-1, 1-1, 1-4 etc)
    - Scoreboard will be updated by me each week

    New participants can join the league at any time, so don't worry if you miss a week.


    Week One (All matches FA Cup - my prediction in brackets)
    Rochdale vs Newcastle (2-1)
    Fulham vs Aston Villa (2-0)
    Wolves vs Manchester United (1-1)
    Middlesborough vs Tottenham (1-3)
    Liverpool vs Everton (2-1)
    Gillingham vs West Ham (0-3)

    The first game this week kick off at 12:31 on Saturday 4th January, so aim so get predictions in by then if you want the best chance of scoring some early points! :)
