    What are the rules for draws? E.g. If I predict 1-1 and the result is 0-0

    That would be a "correct goal difference" so as Nick says 2 points.

    Quite a few football experts missing from the prediction league, maybe they are all talk. Come on be brave, have a go. :nailbiting:

    1. Is it too late to enter?
    2. How do I play?

    I respect that the answer to question 1 may make 2 invalid!

    If you click on the Matches-Preview it shows matches within the next 3 days and you can fill them in there.
    Other than that I dunno...

    Why is the Peterborough vs Swindon result blank? Two other games results are also blank, were they abandoned or postponed? What happens with them?

    For this week and for the first time I didn't even get one point.
    I'm so shit at predicting , though two years ago I did come equal third, but that was obviously my peak period

    It's early days, don't give up. It might not be you that is bad at predicting, it might be the clubs not getting the results they should be getting.

    A much better day for me. Started the season poor as usual on page 2. Then missed a days worth of games. But yesterday went from 15th and 21 points behind 1st place to go 4th and only 14 points behind :)

    Looking at why it isn't updating tonight, keep placing bets though :)

    It relies on a 3rd party service for the results, there isn't even a way for me to put them in manually.
