BBC Premier League Football Predictor

Post by UBT - Timbo » Tue Aug 09, 2016 9:26 am

Hi all

So, the English Premier League starts soon and the BBC have rejigged the Euro 2016 predictor game and re=hashed it for the seasons Premier League.

Instead of just 50-odd Euro games to predict, there's now a whole seasons worth ;-) (By my calculations there are 10 games a week and 38 weeks worth of games....that's 380 predictions to be made !!)

Anyone else fancy joining in? (As the "Three Musketeers" of Woodles, Mikee and myself are already pre-registered as we had a bit of fun playing the Euro's Predictor).

The link is here - you'll need to be signed into your BBC website account to join though - just click on "Join an existing league" and enter our PIN: kqva9g

Unlucky nick, it's annoying when football teams don't behave like they should :D

The link you posted automatically joins you to the league if you have a BBC account. Not a problem but we may end up with a lot of players! :D

Mark

Hi Mark

Thanks for the info - I've changed the link so it might be better now.

Is that a BAD thing ?

BTW: I've also posted the above info in the TSBT forum...so we might see a nice little competition start up... ;-)

Not at all but they may all stay on 0 points. Although that would take a lot of pressure off me coming last :)

But TSBT may know what all those funny words mean! Kilmarnock, Midlothian, Motherwell :shock: :? :?:

Hi Mark

Well done Mark. Good results for you :-)

I got one correct score and that was it...!!

What I'm not liking is how difficult the BBC website designers make it for switching between the Premier League and Scottish Premier League Predictor pages...and that's assuming there's a link for the Predictor on the BBC Sports section of the website.

And there's no easy way of getting them to change it either !!

Oh well.... :-(

Tim

Thanks Tim

The pages can take a bit of finding on the BBC site, I find it easier to use the links in this thread (when I remember to do it that way).

Ah, so you're mjmmjm!

I did slightly better than Tim and got two results right ... one was the correct score as well!

It is a little difficult to navigate around the site, I have a few shortcuts set up.

Regards,

Mark

Hi

Thought I'd better bump this thread as peeps are forgetting to enter their predictions! Still room for anyone else who wants to join in as we're not the best at predicting if you compare us with the top scorers. So anyone who's any good should catch up quickly!

Hi Tim

I don't think I would have got the correct score but the result had to be a gimme.

Hi all

Can anyone who has access to the Predictor League tell me if it is still accessible?

I've had a "run-in" with something or other on my PC and my BBC login doesn't work anymore...so, I want to make sure the League I set up is still available.

regards
Tim
