2015/16 Rules

Started by Viper22,

How It Works....

For each match, you will be asked to fill in a form with your predictions. It will look like this:

Match Details

Opposition -
Date -
Kick-off time -

For your predictions you should set them out using the following format, or similar:

Match Result (Chelsea Win, Draw or Chelsea Lose)

Match Scoreline (Chelsea goals first)

Chelsea's first goalscorer

e.g. If you think that Chelsea will beat Liverpool 2-1 and Chelsea's first goalscorer will be Diego Costa then you post:

Chelsea win



If your prediction is deemed to be in any way vague, IT WON'T BE COUNTED!

You can overcome this by using the template I have outlined above!

Note that the score will be the score at the end of the 90 minutes. In the case of cup knockout matches that go to extra-time, the score will be at the end of 120 minutes. But always remember that Chelsea goals must come first at all times.

The Scoring System


  • If you correctly predict the type of result, you gain one point.
  • If a game goes to extra-time, the result is applicable to the score at the end of the 120 minutes
  • In a single-leg cup tie, if the game is decided on penalties, the correct result is a draw. If it is a double-legged cup tie (ie. a Champions League knockout round tie) and the game is decided on penalties, the correct result is reflected by the score in that leg at the end of extra-time.

Final Score

  • You gain one point for predicting the goals scored or one point for predicting the goals conceded. For example, if you said that Chelsea would win 1-0 but they drew 1-1 you would gain one point for the correct number of goals scored. You would not gain any points for the match result forecast though.
  • If you got neither the amount of goals scored or conceded correct, you can gain two points for correctly guessing the margin of the score. For example, if Chelsea win 2-0 but you predicted a 3-1 victory, you would obtain two points. However, this is not relevant if the game is drawn - you will not attain additional points as the scoring margin must be the same.
  • If you predict the exact final score, you get three points.
  • If a game is drawn after 90 minutes and the game is settled in extra-time, then the Final Score is relevant to the score at 120 minutes.


  • If you correctly predict the first Chelsea player to score in the game, you gain three points.
  • If the person you select to score first does score, but also scores later on in the match, you will be awarded one point per additional goal that player scores.
  • If the player you predict to score the first Chelsea goal does not score the first Chelsea goal, but still scores, you gain one point for each goal they score.
  • You may put down own goal as the first Chelsea goalscorer, in which case you will receive points as per usual.
  • You may also decide that Chelsea may not score at all - in which case, simply put 'N/A' or 'none' next to the criterion. If correct, you will gain three points.


  • You may make a prediction in a topic for a match as soon as the topic opens - and you are also free to edit this prediction as many times as you like.
  • However, predictions close fifteen minutes before kick-off, and topics will also be closed to prevent you from potentially editing your own post.


  • Randomly-assigned fixtures will be labelled wildcard game-weeks. These work in the same way as normal game-weeks, however, the difference is any points you achieve will be doubled.
  • For example, if you correctly predicted that Chelsea would beat Blackburn 1-0, and that Diego Costa would be the first goalscorer, you would normally receive six points - in a wildcard game-week, this would be doubled to 12.
  • There will be a maximum of five wildcard game-weeks, all of which will be Premier League fixtures.
  • The assigned fixtures will be publicized at a later date.


Reputation will be awarded to those people who finish in the top ten, on the following scale:

  • 1st - 150 rep points
  • 2nd - 100 rep points
  • 3rd - 80 rep points
  • 4th - 60 rep points
  • 5th - 40 rep points
  • 6th, 7th - 30 rep points
  • 8th, 9th, 10th - 20 rep points

Slight change to the scoring system this year, with points awarded for goals scored or conceded regardless of whether you correctly predict the match result forecast. Good luck everyone!!
