    It should just be 1 point for a win IMO and nothing else. Otherwise it gets too confusing

    i will keep both in mind

    still just fine tuning how i will do everything at the moment
    4 weeks out i will post a full set of "rules"
    i will also post a full match schedule, and little things later on

    the reason behind posting the rules 4 weeks out is to make sure everyone can have a look at them....Under no circrumstances will any modifications be made to those rules after that post however, before that date, make a suggestion and let it be open to the discrepency of the other tippers*

    * - must be a registered tipper to have your say

    4 points for spot on result
    3 points for getting the margin of victory correct (or a draw which is 1 goal out)
    2 points for getting the outcome.

    All predictions up to kick-off are valid, no editting of posts allowed.

    Those rules were simple and used to work perfectly fine when we had something in the past.

    My tuppence worth: we could all register on a site that lets you run a private league. It also has the advantage of preventing cribbing of others' tips.

    However if posting tips in a thread is the way to go how about:

    1 point for correct outcome (win, loss, draw)
    1 point for correct score (1-0, 2-1, etc)
    1 point for first goalscorer
    2 point bonus for all three (i.e. if you tip England to beat Trinidad 3-0 with Rooney as first goalscorer and all come to pass you get 5 points)

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    I like Marc's points system - but i also like the idea of trying to guess first goalscorer...

    Finding a site would make it easier if lot of people sign up...but as stated the problem is finding one

    My scoring system is tried and tested as being a fair way of awarding both those that are consistently accurate but also the spot ons!

    Mind you, when we get near to the actual Tournament finding a site won't be a problem I'd think.

    There'll also no doubt be a Fantasy Football thing for Dale to win.
