YES..........It's back. Season 4 of 'The Weekly Punt' an entertaining interactive football prediction game that's open to everyone. It doesn't matter if you're a budding football pundit or just like a simple bit of pot-luck fun. COME AND GIVE IT A GO.

GAME & RULES:
Either google: bbc football premier league predictor
Or go to: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_prem/predictor/default.stm
Bookmark it for ease of use, week on week.

Simply fill in the scores of the games (that are posted here every week)
and then press the 'Update Table' button. The Premier league table will magically adjust and will now show all the teams positions based on your predictions.
We then post (back here) the TOP SIX and the BOTTOM THREE teams - their league position and their goal difference (GD) we are not interested in how many league points they have.

**NOTE: If a team does not feature on the BBC predictor in one of the nine (9) league positions that we are punting on (1st to 6th then 18;19 & 20th) NO points will be awarded.

ONE point awarded for every correct team position and TWO points for correctly guessing their Goal Difference.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THAT'S IT. SIMPLE AND FUN.
We then add everybody's weekly scores and I post the results in the form of a league table.

**HOLIDAY PUNTS: I try to get all 20 teams games in every week, Sky have reintroduced Monday night footy and occasionally we get a Tuesday game but in general we try to avoid midweek games. We don't punt on the International and F.A. Cup weekends. So if you are going on holiday please feel free to punt ahead with the date of each individual punt (don't forget to 'update table' between each week) As you won't know the exact games we are punting on while you are away you might miss out on a game or two but at least you will get some points.

**ABSENTEE PUNTS due to illness/caring for others. We will implement the Lez's Punt system
Ie. Whoever is absent, their next weekly punt will be a duplicate copy of this weeks winner's next punt (plus 1 point for good measure).

**POSTPONED OR CANCELLED MATCHES** If a match that appears on the BBC predictor is cancelled for any reason punters will receive 2 points 'in lieu' of points lost for that particular game. 2 postponed games will accrue 4 points and so on.

So, welcome back to all last years participants (please notice it's the TOP 6 and BOTTOM 3 teams again this season) and a big hello to new Punters. Please do not hesitate to ask questions.

WELCOME ALONG & GOOD LUCK

With myself that makes 10. I'm hoping RedJohn, Schiz, Mark Kibble, Philip, David, Greysuit and anyone else I've forgotten (apologies!) will all join us once again. If you come across them maybe you could ask them or redirect them to here.

If anyone out there is wondering whether to join in or not, please feel free to give it a go.
We're a nice bunch and it will give you another 'take' on the season ahead.
Even if you hate football!!
Cheers
MC

C'mon Schiz, quit mopping about how little Wenger is going to spend on the @rse, and how you can play hide and seek in your trophy cabinet, and stick your name down!!
