Inter-Forum ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE Positions Game 2013-14
Organized by Sunderland’s Black Cat Chat, Reading's Royals Rendezvous & Talk of the Terrace Forums


This game is already well established, several seasons running now. And dead easy! You simply guess ONCE (now!) what you think will be the final league positions for the Premier League 2013-14 (that’s all teams, in order 1st to 20th), leave them on this thread, and then sit back and enjoy! The Sunderland ‘Black Cat Chat’ forum does the rest all season. I am the representative from the Reading forum Royals Rendezvous, and last season we also had a strong Liverpool group too. But this season we’re going big time – let’s try to get over 20 forums involved. Talk of the Terrace are also going to be a point of reference for all.

Why the attraction of all this you may well ask?! Well, it’s now some time since we had those great days of the BBC 606 fans forum service – alas, most will remember it closed in June 2011 – so this is an ideal way to keep us all together still.

This game will initially take you a couple of minutes, and then enjoy without having to make updates at all, all season. Here right below are the current 20 Premier teams in alphabetical order – simply copy these onto your PC and re-arrange them in your finishing order come the end of the 2013-14 season:

Arsenal
Aston Villa
Cardiff City
Chelsea
Crystal Palace
Everton
Fulham
Hull City
Liverpool
Manchester City
Manchester United
Newcastle United
Norwich City
Southampton
Stoke City
Sunderland
Swansea City
Tottenham Hotspur
West Bromwich Albion
West Ham United


According to your choices you score lots of, or better still few, points. And how do you score points?

Scoring is as follows: For each team you score one point for each place away from its predicted position. Example - if you predict Sunderland to finish 9th and they finish 9th, you score 0 points (excellent predicting). If they finish 13th you score 4 points or if they finish 7th you score 2 points. Therefore, the nearer you get to the exact position and have less points mounting up the better of course. I will endeavour to make updates at the beginning of every month during the season out of interest, but all leaderboards during the season are given for interest.
IMPORTANT - The big winners are the people who have LEAST points after the final game has been played.

The table positions won’t change position so much in the later stages of the season so … how can we maintain interest you might be thinking?! Well, this season we have MONTHLY rewards for those in the top positions! For example, rewards for high positions at the end of every month (say, calculating from the REAL table on the 31st at 11.59pm!!). Here's the idea:

1st - take off 5 bonus points from score of best, so score dips even lower
2nd - take off 4 bonus points
3rd - take off 3 bonus points
4th - take off 2 bonus points
5th - take off 8 bonus point

Bonus Points for the most successful - Positions 1 to 5 (on points so there may well be far more than 5 people involved) will have from 5 to 1 point deducted - further helping their score. Their position for the deduction will be based on their (true) score, not taking any previous deductions into account.

Also, where forums have an entry of a minimum of five people there will be a ‘board average’ too, thus you’ll be able to see how your forum copes against many of the others. I believe it’s an average set against a yardstick of averages and not a simple add up and divide, but the order of forums will always be correct. We’ll also have some notable entries from media, press and public figures to spice it up too. And any individual can enter too, without being affiliated to any football forum, no problem there. In that case please leave your entry on THIS THREAD where just in this section any non-registered member is able to post.

Just one plea - Please use the team names given above, it's a pain in the a**e translating entries from WBA or W.B.A. or West B,A. etc. so that the Sunderland automatic process stands some chance. And although you may know who the **** are, the computer doesn't! Thanks!!

And enjoy it! But think hard before committing pen to paper, this selection will last you all season!! (If you change opinion and ideas, then please make a new post and not simply edit, in case I don't get to read your change).
ALL entries in before kick-off day (and if possible don't leave it to the final day, it will strangle us!!!).

Rather than clog this forum up I'd rather any more predictions were done on that thread, rather than here.
