Given no-one scored over 60% last year, I could stop now and win! What the heck!

Swansea v Man Utd - Away
Bournemouth v Watford - Draw
Burnley v West Brom - Home
Leicester v Brighton - Home

Maybe we should change the rules and weight the results based on the number of predictions versus actual weeks. The maths is pretty simple.

Swansea v Man Utd - Away
Bournemouth v Watford - Draw
Burnley v West Brom - Away
Leicester v Brighton - Home
Liverpool v Crystal Palace - Draw

Ok, so... I'm feeling a tad over-wine-tasted tonight (big 2-day wine fair here plus we have visitors) hic, so if we go down that route pm me the maths as I'm not going to work it out tonight!

I take it we have to guess the result - in that case, and I am not a football fan, here goes

Swansea v Man Utd - AWAY
Bournemouth v Watford - AWAY
Burnley v West Brom - HOME
Leicester v Brighton - DRAW
Liverpool v Crystal Palace - HOME

Now someone is going to say I can't put DRAW, so if thats the case I'll change that to a HOME. What happens if the match is postponed?

Sueindoors, welcome!
You predict home (win) away (win) or draw for each game
If a match is postponed I simply work out the table on the remaining matches whiwh do take place

It's easy, rather than just take a roll up of the % per week and reset, you count the number of predictions over the year. So if you look at last year there were 169 possible predictions. The top two were OK but as you look further down it's a bit of a mess and as was pointed out, in theory, get 100% in the first round, never predict again and you win.

So it's - number correct/total number of predictions = %

I hope that makes sense.
