TWTD Prediction League Starts Saturday
Tuesday, 14th Aug 2012 15:36
With the Championship kicking off on Saturday, it’s time to register for the TWTD Prediction League 2012/13. There are also two fantasy leagues being run by TWTD Message Boarders this season.
The Prediction League – which doesn’t include cup matches such as this evening’s game against Bristol Rovers – is essentially the same competition we’ve been running since August 2000. You predict the score and first scorer of each match and you get points based on your accuracy.
You get three points if you get the scoreline spot on, plus a bonus of the number of goals in that game (so an accurate prediction of 1-3 would get you three points and a bonus of four).
If you don’t get the score right but correctly guess that it will be an away win, for example, you’ll be awarded one point. You get two points for predicting the correct first Town scorer.
The overall winner of the competition will receive £150 of Amazon vouchers. Last year’s winner was Yorksblue, congratulations to him.
To get started, go to our Prediction League page and enter your predictions for Saturday's game at home to Blackburn. You can make any number of predictions for a match, but only the last one will count. So, if we happen to sign a prospective 35-goals-a-season striker tomorrow, just log in and change your prediction.
Meanwhile, two free fantasy football leagues will be running throughout the season, full details here.

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
