7 is allowed. More than 7 isn't.
I should read the rules more carefully next time!
That's because you've both picked the bleeding obvious

that’s 56 in total. I was calculating 50 to 60, so it’s not bad. I think we’ll get more as kick-off approaches!! But you principally play against posters on your forum, not against other forums ...
Remember entries welcome until 4th August!
As you're doing brilliantly with this game in terms of entries, here's word on the other prediction thread for the season - the old and trusted:
The big Inter-Forum PREMIER Positions Game 2016-17
I feel pretty sure this will grab your attentions because Watford are right in there ... will be interesting to see how you place your team this season :smiley-sport029:
For a bit of fun, this is who bet365 think will win each league, with the second favourite listed as well:
Premier League - Man City (5/2); Man Utd (10/3)
Championship - Newcastle (7/4); Aston Villa (8/1)
League One - Sheff Utd (5/1); Charlton (8/1)
League Two - Portsmouth (9/2); Doncaster (9/1)
National League - Forest Green (10/3); Tranmere (13/2)
Scots Prem - Celtic (1/3); Rangers (5/2)
Scots Champ - Hibernian (11/10); Dundee Utd (11/4)
Spain - Barcelona (8/11); Real Madrid (6/4)
Germany - Bayern (1/8); Dortmund (7/1)
Italy - Juventus (1/2); Roma (5/1)
For this game you only have ONE WEEK left to enter!!
Out of interest this should be the complete entry list as we stand. If someone has posted this morning it might not show up. But apart from that, if you don't see your name and you've done it, please yell on the thread.
So only this week, try to have all in by Thursday night if possibly, and by Friday Championship kick-off at the very limit of deadline ....
Good luck everyone!
I think my computer screen is pi$$ed!
Premier League - Man City
Championship - Newcastle
League Div 1 - Sheff Utd.
League Div 2 - Portsmouth
National League - Forest Green
Scotland Premier League - Celtic
Scotland Championship - Hibernian
Spain - Real Madrid
Germany - Bayern Munich
Italy - Juventus
Still gonna win this.
Too similar to mine I'm afraid and maybe a few others.
Yep, I have to uphold that, only two different so please feliuk change at least one difference to have only maximum of seven same as anyone else on this board. That rule is to make it an interesting member game where there will be real differences in the final placings ...
Premier League - Man City
Championship - Norwich
League One - Sheff Utd
League Two - Doncaster
National League - Forest Green
Scots Prem - Celtic
Scots Champ - Hibernian
Spain - Barcelona
Germany - Bayern
Italy - Juventus
Entries close at 7.44pm this evening, one minute before the Championship first match kicks off!
But for the different 'Premier League Positions Game you still have one more week'
So ... last chance to participate in the 10-Champs Game! ! !
Entries now closed!
And 88 in in total, one doubt only
Numbers - but remember you only play against people on your own forum here!
Watford - WFC Forums 20 ( - 1?) Shall we let feliuk in, although needs one different to have an 'original' entry? I say YES ... only needed one team different and is only a game!!

How has it started? How many of your teams can you see?
Here are the top placings (in order) in all the leagues featured in this game …
League Div 1
League Div 2
Vanarama National (Conference)
Dagenham & Red.
Queen of South
1. FC Koln
Cmon north ferriby
Team - Pl - W - D - L - GF - GA - Pts
20. Bromley 12 3 2 7 13:20 11
21. North Ferriby 12 3 1 8 6:20 10
22. Braintree 12 2 3 7 10:18 9
23. Southport 12 2 3 7 9:27 9
24. Guiseley 12 0 3 9 11:24 3
but good to see those cheaters from Guiseley suffering, they b*gg**** up Braintree last season with a goal instead of returning the ball for a stoppage ...
Early form doesn't matter
still about seven games away - on average - from the half-season update and points awards, but I've got it under control!
Firstly we have already arrived/surpassed the half-way point in 5 of the 10 leagues featured in our 10-Champs game.
These are the dates when the remaining five reach the half-way point -
League 2 - 31st December
Premier - 1st January
Italy - 8th January
Germany - 21st January
Spain - 23rd January
So the final half-way points won’t be known until then, but I have now calculated for you the five leagues (Championship, League 1, National League, Scottish Premier & Scottish Championship) which have arrived at half the number of games played, and the points for each player are as shown below. The more points the better so you are shown in order:

The PozzMan - Running Total - 15
In the Scottish Premier the top three placings have been awarded 10-7-4 pts although the ‘European’ placings are not totally clear for next season yet.
After ALL the English and Scottish leagues have now reached the half-way point I can now offer results of 7 of the 10 leagues being calculated; we only await the three European top leagues of Spain, Germany and Italy. And for those three most - almost all - of you will score good points, but until 23rd Jan I won’t be able to give you those complete being as Spain and Germany have a winter break so get behind on the schedules.
Here then is the latest 10-Champs league table for yourselves to chew upon or simply gloat, most points being the best. You are shown in order as we stand, already some changes from last report …
So back at the end of January on this …

It’s your forum game, but just out of interest these are the best so far nationally, those who have already broken the 40-point mark … if on same points, then simply in alphabetical order of member name!
If you’re here - then you’re GOOD! There are another 100 or so who don’t make it onto fame!

After ALL the English and Scottish and European leagues have now reached, and in most cases passed, the half-way mark. Here are the complete points collected from the first half of the season - however the BIG points are awarded at the very end of the season, so there is plenty to play for.
As we know from the initial post introduction MOST points means the best. If you want to see the exact points you are getting for each placing please go back to that initial presentation. You are shown in order of excellence as we stand …
Probably I’ll be back on this thread during these winter months with a few anecdotes as to how the leagues are going, and so you don’t forget this is talking place! …

Wow. I'm good at this one.:naughty:
Wow. I'm bad at this one. :doom:
Almost end of season. Not worth a complete update, because only the Vanarama (Conference) is totally decided, including the play-offs. So I will wait for a few play-off results from other leagues first.
But just to note down that at this very moment, first on this forum is currently:
Manatleisure with 95 points (that's joint top nationally!)
followed by feliuk on 80 points, and miked2006 and Hornmeister both on 78 points ...
END OF SEASON results!
I’ve now added on the end of season points (going all the way from +25 for champions to -12 for relegation for each team you predicted) in all the ten European leagues we featured (five tiers in England, two in Scotland, plus Spain, Germany and Italy). And your points can now be seen - congratulations to the top shots!
Later on, I’ll do a special report from a round-up of the top nationally!

Aaarrrggghhh. Feliuk knocked me out of a top 3 finish. And to think I was happy in principle for Feliuk's illegal entry to be allowed to take part. Grrrr.
Yippeeeee. I won!!
