FAQ's

How do I enter?


You can enter via the ENTER tab, just click the appropriate Footy Predictor number.


How are the entries marked and scored?


We have a page explaining the scoring system we use on the link available from every page Bottom right under Help & Information :- Scoring Examples. This page is also under the Home menu  :- Scoring Examples. We mark using a spreadsheet, the entries are typed into it prior to the start of the first match when ever we can but not always before the first match starts. As each goal is scored and entered into the spreadsheet it automatically marks every entry, so we know who has won the moment all entries have been typed in and all result have been entered. Once All the entries are in, the last goal has been entered in and the final whistle blows, we should know the winner. I currently have most time ovr the weekend on Sunday evenings so the result are normally up for Monday morning, but when I can they could be up earier.



How to I pay for The Footy Predictor?


If you want to play (on line is the only way to play) you MUST pay in advance by buying a Season ticket.


If the Season Ticket sales have closed Normally after week 5, then a rest of Season ticket we be available just ring me and I'll work out what it should cost. £40 divided by 40, times number of competitions left, then rounded up to the nearest £5.


If you are not going to play on-line then you can't play.



How do you calculate my Projected score?


The spreadsheet I use calculates your score automatically, the points it shows during the competition are what I call your "projected score" when the first match starts I set all the scores to 0-0 and only change them as a goal is scored and so it calculates your points based on no more goals being scored, so if the matches ended with their current scores the score it shows is the score you will finish with. As each goal is scored I enter that and your (new) projected score alters. For matches that have not started if you have predicted a win, either home or away you will not have any projected points from that match, if you predicted a 0-0 draw you would have 10 points from the match (but you would lose that as soon as a goal was scored), and if you predicted a draw other than 0-0 you'd have 4 points, (again these points would not be a sure thing and could be lost). During our matches you can gain and lose projected points whatever you have predicted, depending on how the match is currently standing. the points you have from the matches that have finished are the only ones that are "in the bag". Hope this help you understand exactly what your projected score is.

I stopped using the projected scores regularly in my saturday posts as it seem to confuse people! but I am planning to do a couple of my old saturday running scores to see if people think that is worth the effort by me, let me know.
