    Premier League Tipping 2011/12

    An awed and sexually charged hush please.

    Just over a week until the Prem starts another season of dizzying highs, soul crushing lows and creamy middles. The trick is predicting which will happen when though.

    The unpatented scoring system that has seen us through two previous seasons of thick and thin will continue for a third.

    Briefly then:

    1) 1 point per correct tip.

    2) Bonus points will be awarded for the week's top tipper(s), but these will only be used to separate posters who're on the same number of actual tips. As we have midweek games up here weeks are deemed to run from Sat-Fri.

    3) No editing of tips. At all. If you change your mind please quote your original tips in a new post. Avoids any potential skullbuggery and it's less easy to miss tips for me.

    4) Non-submitters get the lowest score for the week for three weeks, then will be removed from comp.

    5) Latecomers join on the lowest actual score so far minus one point.

    6) Tips for postponed games will not be carried forward. So if you tip Man U to beat Wigan in Januray, it gets rained off and rearranged for April you'll need to tip again at the time of the rescheduled fixture. Less of a ball-ache for me, basically.

    7) As we have three potential results & teams often play more than once a week please C&P the whole fixture and highlight your winner or write "draw" beside the fixture and highlight that.


    Fixtures for week one as they stand:

    Saturday, 13 August 2011

    Blackburn v Wolverhampton
    Fulham v Aston Villa
    Liverpool v Sunderland
    QPR v Bolton
    Tottenham v Everton

    Straying from the pack and taking a gamble assuming Fulham to have a decent home advantage.
