SPUG EPL Prediction League
Results 03 - 04 May 2008

Congrats to Cool402 who is in the lead by the skin of his teeth and just one more weekend to go! There are 5 of us behind him within strike range and so the game isn't over just yet.

I think I better lay out the rules for the tie breaker here in case we can't find a clear winner at the end of 38 EPL games. We shall use the FA Cup as the tie-breaker with the following rules:

  1. Those involve in the tie breaker shall submit their predictions to me via email (voxeros[at]yahoo[dot]com) only (assuming I am not involved. Otherwise, I will appoint a 3rd party to take submissions).

    This is to prevent participants from seeing each other's submissions prior to kick-off.

    Everybody else are welcome to play along but their submissions will be in the comments section.

  2. Prediction will be the result at the end of 90 minutes with Outcome = 3 points and Goal Bonus at 1 point each.

  3. Should there be yet a tie again, then we shall proceed to the European Champions League final as the tie breaker to the tie breaker where Points (1) and (2) apply again.

  4. During the European Champions League final, participants are also required to predict the side that would score the first goal and the time of the first goal according to Soccernet's Gamecast. This is in case there is another tie after Point (3).

  5. Assuming the tie breaker is required, the winner shall be the declared winner of the SPUG EPL Prediction League 2007/2008 only after the tie breaker results have been finalised.

Important Note: Don't forget. We will be doing Euro 2008 Prediction League. Don't disappear immediately after the EPL ends hor!
