New Prediction League

I've subscribed to a new prediction league being launched this week.

The prizes are pretty good and it looks simple to use and fun to do. At the end of the season they'll be offering BIG prizes to those that come top for each club, divisional champion and the English champion! The winner of the whole competition (across all the league clubs) will win £1000!

Runner up prizes of a season ticket are awarded to the other winners of each divisional competition.

Finally, the winners of each club competition will get a club shirt for the 2008/09 season. That means the best Boro team will get a Boro shirt - hopefully they will arrive earlier in 2008/09 than they have this close season (shirts expected end of Aug!!)

What you do is predict the scoreline of Boro's league matches and get awarded points according to your accuracy.

I'm going to be pushing this a lot this season as it is run by fanzine people rather than big corporates. The prizes are good and it looks good.

I've just tried myself - and have registered and made my prediction in the space of 2 minutes. I'm an absolute techno-phobe as well.

It's simple.

Bak_Row_Boy Posted on 6/8 15:54
re: New Prediction League

Me too Mc Cann. Comes up as Arsenal, change team to Boro, click the continue tab, page refreshes and the team is back at Arsenal telling me to "first of all pick my team".

McCann_87 Posted on 6/8 15:54
re: New Prediction League

Me banned? Why what would they ban me for

rob_fmttm Posted on 6/8 15:57
re: New Prediction League

What do you both use? PCs or Macs? Do you use Internet Explorer or something else?

Exit the website and have another go - you should get a box allowing you to LOG IN.

But tell me the answers to the questions above - that might help.

rob_fmttm Posted on 6/8 17:41
re: New Prediction League

I'll find what is happening or not Ray - I'm also not in the league - perhaps it is just a time lag thing.

Did McCann and Bak Row manage to get registered in the end or not?

rob_fmttm Posted on 6/8 17:54
re: New Prediction League

I think it may only be showing ten names Ray - this will be a top ten when the league starts. The rest of us will be there but now I need to find out why the whole league is not showing.

Anymore for this. Good prizes on offer.

re: New Prediction League

Does anyone know if Mr Predictor will be up and running on block 17 for the start of the season?

If so, I have a message for Yoda from wheelz.

Boro85 Posted on 6/8 18:00
re: New Prediction League

Signed up as well, gone for a 2-1 win. Here's hoping.

Edit: As for as i know MrPredictor isnt running this year.

Sorry banner above was a bit big - will re-size or replace.

rob_fmttm Posted on 6/8 18:36
re: New Prediction League

Just found out the full league tables etc will show up once the season starts. It's just shows a 10 team league at the moment while people sign up - it will roll out fully on season kick off.

Boro85 Posted on 6/8 20:10
re: New Prediction League

Fixed the banner above now as well, its a £1000 top prize, not the previously stated £100.

newholgate Posted on 6/8 20:12
re: New Prediction League

Boro85, cheers, will let wheelz know!

re: New Prediction League

Nice banner Boro85 - very smart indeed.

Any of the evening crowd fancy a prediction? Totally free to enter - you just predict Boro's score and first scorer every week.

Free to you but you could win £1000 or a Boro shirt.

re: New Prediction League

We've got quite a good league going now with 117 people entered as of this morning. We could do with 8 more to match the number from Newcastle. But that's not a bad competition is it? So please join up and predict the Boro v Blackburn score - prizes and pride at stake.

Link: Predict the Boro scores

rob_fmttm Posted on 8/8 17:22
re: New Prediction League

How it works -

Predict the scoreline of Boro’s league matches and get awarded points according to your accuracy. At the end of the season there will be BIG prizes to those that come top for each club, divisional champion and the English champion!

You get one point for a correct outcome (i.e. home win, draw or loss) or three points for an accurate scoreline (eg. 3-1), and two points for correctly predicting the first scorer. If you get the score exactly right, you will also get a bonus of the number of the goals in that match. For example, if you accurately predict 2-0 you will get 3 points for the correct result and a bonus of 2.

You will need to register to take part in the league. You enter a team name, a valid email address (which will be verified) and a password. You will be emailed the details back to you which should be kept safe as you will need them to enter your predictions.

Should you forget to enter your prediction, you'll be sent an email the day before a match to remind you.

The winner of the prediction league for this club will win a REPLICA SHIRT for next season. Score the most points against your fellow supporters and next season’s shirt is yours. 

Score the most points against fellow fans in the Premiership and you will win a SEASON TICKET for Middlesbrough. Simply outscore all supporters of other teams in the Prem and that is your lucky prize.

Score the most points per game Boro play and you could walk away with the top prize of ONE THOUSAND POUNDS CASH. To create fairness it will be based on your score divided by either 38 (Premiership) or 46 games (Football League) dependent on where your favourite team plays but with a four figure prize on offer what more incentive do you need.  

There will also be monthly spot prizes each and every month of the season, so it doesn’t matter if you are at the bottom of the Prediction League, you will have as much chance as anyone else of winning a prize the next month. 

All you have to do is register your interest (and your opening predictions) via and you are in the running to scoop one of these fantastic prizes. And don't worry about remembering to enter each week - you can do several games in advance and we will remind you before every game if you haven't registered your prediction.

re: New Prediction League

Can I give another punt to this - trying to increase the size of our league. Give it a go - very simple and prizes to be won.

jd1973 Posted on 8/8 22:15
re: New Prediction League

Out of interest do you get paid for this Rob?

backofthenet_ascl Posted on 8/8 22:28
re: New Prediction League

Right could someone else confirm this or I've not done it right, you enter your details then predict Blackburn score.... then thats it??

rob_fmttm Posted on 9/8 19:20
re: New Prediction League

Evening hoof - in answer to questions - you register - receive an email - click on the email and predict the score and first scorer in Boro v Blackburn - that's it.

Then next week you can predict Wigan v Boro and then Fulham V Boro - you can do them all at the same time if you wish.

"Do I get paid?" - not that I know of but want to help build this up because it has real potential I think.

backofthenet_ascl Posted on 9/8 19:27
re: New Prediction League

Cheers Rob, well I'm interested in doing this so next question is do I receive another email for the next game (Wigan) or will that be my job to find relevant screen and do this myself?
