Welcome to the 10th annual Pompey Predictions League.

Many of you will be familiar with the format having taken part in the competition in previous years?

In actually fact many of you would have been involved every year we've run it, and for that we say thanks as always.

The squad is now basically sorted, this is looking good and 'should' leave us confident of the season ahead but we'll keep this games format as it has been of late just going for the score needing to be predicted, not the scorers.

Simple but again effective...well hopefully anyway!


As before this is a very simple idea that will take minimal time and effort, but should be 'a bit of fun' for us throughout the 2016-17 season and also see just how much we go with our head or our heart!

To take part in this, as I say simple but effective yet best of all free, idea all you have to do is be a member of this site (sign up here) and be willing to spent a few moments before each game that Pompey play to put forward your prediction on what you think the result will be.


You will have up until the time of kick-off to get in your predictions (anytime after will not count, less so with myself unlikely to be calculating the point this season) with points then accumulated throughout the season. I would suggest predictions in the forum match day threads will be fine and if I get any predictions personally to me I'll pass them on.

Each league two game Pompey play will have a new thread within the predictions league forum created and you simply give your prediction on these areas.

1 - Pompey will win, lose or draw...
2 - What the score line will be...


Points will be scored for correct predictions in each category and will be given as follows.

1 - Correctly predicted match outcome = 5pts.
2 - Correctly predicted scoreline (You must specify which team will win by the result you enter!) = 5pts.
3 - Bonus points. If you are spot on with the exact result you also get a bonus of 10pts.

It is that simple really, but for example for the opening game with Carlisle I may go for Pompey to win 5-0. If this happens I would get 5pts for the win prediction and 5pts for the 5-0 scoreline prediction, so 10pts overall.

There would also be the 10pt bonus for being spot on with the outcome = 20pts in total.

Only predictions within the prediction forum will count. You only have until kick-off to register a valid prediction. Although, as said, I suspect we'll accept them on the 'match day' threads for each game and at a push on the front-page preview articles...

Points are carried forward continuously and the member who has the most accumulated points at the end of the competition will be the winner.

Only league games are covered in the overall game (play-offs if needed too), although there 'might' be a friendly spin off for the League Cup, FA Cup and EFL Trophy games as well?


As with previous seasons 1st, 2nd and 3rd places will all win something, the higher the placing the better the prize therefore something for nothing (but your time) cannot be bad can it! This really is something for nothing as there is no catch as you do not have to payout anything.

Predictor of the month. The member that scores the most points each month will claim this prize. I will ask this winner to contact me each month.


This is quick, easy, effective and best of all free! It is a bit of fun and should get some banter going, so I hope plenty of you get involved again.

What have you got to lose guys?

It is not as if you are not coming on the site anyway! Despite less actively getting involved (for whatever reason) now plenty still view so take a slight detour before each game we play, in the forum thread, and join in to stand the chance of winning something.

Well, that's enough from me, who is in?
