Just restart it the first week all six leagues are playing, this season or next.


Can't really do that though can I as I've already paid out £100 in prize money to 2 entrants.

You could PM the two people that have received £50 prizes and ask if they are in a position to pay it back. If they are, void the game and hold the money for a new game whenever that may be.

The easiest way is to pay out as the league stands at the minute. Or, restart as the league as it stands now, when all the leagues re start (next season)

I think just hang fire and wait for a decision on the league/prem, they will both do the same thing

I think that's what I'm going to do. The only problem though is that teams will probably be playing Saturday/Tuesday/Saturday/Tuesday to finish the games so in that case instead of just weekend games counting I may change it to Friday-Monday games as now but also take into account games played Tuesday-Thursday to make sure the game's won by the end of the season.

My suggestion is do a virtual comp how ever many entries there is put that amount of balls in the bag number 0 to six ( 6 so Man Utd can bust) and draw each team a score.
If there is no winner repeat until there is perhaps taking the higher numbers out of the scenario
Just my thoughts.
And before anyone else shouts pieces of paper would do or a dice with the 6 scoring no goals

A quick update here.

With both The National League and League 2 announcing there will be no more games this season and League 1 likely to follow suit soon, I have decided to declare the latest season of The Prediction League null and void. Thanks to all those who entered and as soon as things finally get back to some sort of normality we will begin another league. There is no financial implication here so there is no problem there.

As for The Fishy Buster that is slightly different. Obviously with the above mentioned leagues ending it will not be viable to complete the game this season. This does leave me with £410 in prize money still to pay out, I have thought of doing the following but will consider any other options anyone might like to suggest on here.

I could hold onto the prize money and restart the game next season when all teams are playing again. Alternatively I could award prizes to entrants at random (i.e 10 prizes of £41 or 5 prizes of £82). I don't really think it is fair to award the winning and lowest score prizes to the highest and lowest scorers at the moment as the highest at the moment could just as easily bust. Another option is to donate some or all of the remaining money to 1 or more worthy charities.

What do we all think?

5 or 10 prizes gets my vote.
10 prizes means 10 people get a bit of cheer. 😄


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'
