FT Premiership
2011-12 TIPPING COMPETITION
FT Premier League



This year's FT-PL comp will be the 9th edition of this head-to-head tipping comp. For those of us who are unfamiliar with this comp, it's a round-robin league system where everybody plays everybody else twice (aka home and away), and everyone picks the 10 weekly games played in the FA Premier League .. it's a head-to-head contest where the winner receives 3 pts and it's one point each for a draw .. aka if you pick 8/10 and your opponent picks 6/10, you win!

There are no changes to the rules, they're the same as last year's comp : FT-PL 2009-2010. This year's comp starts on Saturday 13th August 2011 and ends on Sunday 13th May 2012. We will only tip 34 of the 38 FAPL rounds played - the FA Cup weekends for the quarters and semis are ignored, plus the 2 rounds that straddle new year's eve.

The field is limited to a maximum of 18 runners and, unlike other comps in here where you may simply post your picks in the first tipping thread *or* sign-in, you must sign in here to enter this comp, so that the weekly head-to-head fixtures can be put together. If less than 18 sign-up, that's the field. If more than 18 apply, preference will be given to the tipsters who sign-in first *and* have previously played in a season-long FT tipping comp. If we still have more than 18 we'll use the exclusion system specified in last year's rules (see link above).

To allow time for the weekly schedule of who's-playing-who to be, firstly, put together and, secondly, posted in the tipping threads, the deadline for signing-up is midnight FT time on Sunday 31st July .. there's a grace period of 2 or 3 hours, but please don't push your luck past that. Putting the weekly round-robin schedule does take time.

Please note that, as there are no byes in this head-to-head comp, we must have an even number of contestants. If we have less than 18 players sign-up and it's an odd number, sign-up will be left open and the next person to sign-in is it, that's the field. If no one signs-in after 3 days (by Wednesday midnight) the sequence A-B-N-R (see last year's thread) will will be used to exclude one player!

The defending titleholder is LeoDaVinci, who caught paper_aero on the final day and won it on goal difference! (that made it back-to-back second position for paper_aero) Last year's bronze medallist was Howie72. To look at previous comps: click on the HoF link in the top LH corner, then click on the link for each season's FT-PL comp.

How many runners will we have for the 2011-12 comp .. will it be 16 or 18? Please sign-in if you wanna knock over LeoDaVinci, and join the queue!

My last game cost me dearly last season and I finished-up way down in fifteenth. I'd like another go - if only to redeem myself tongue - but I guess I shouldn't be too hopeful smile.

I'll give it a go despite my ineptitude at footballing picking (3 options is too many for me!). Sounds like fun

Srini, my good friend, I fear that I finished much lower than you last year, I think my place is more precarious :P

BxBarracuda/PaulE, DanielPoulson, and Copago are the possible relegations. Let's hope we don't have to relegate any of them!

I don't know Dave, looking at the final standings I think my win total might keep me out of relegation.

If there are more tippers then spots I would be willing to give up my spot for a year.

I think we'll only see about two or three more...most of the usual suspects have already confirmed! There are still room for four more anyway...max is 18, and we have 14.
