2015-16 EPL Prediction Contest

It's that time of year again. Here are your past champions:

YearChampion
2011 HomerDome (18 pts)
2012 MagUidhir (19 pts)
2013 Philo (21 pts)
2014 Philo (32 pts)

This year will crown our 2015* Champion. Can Philo go for a three-peat? Will nibbish finally break through and unseat him? Someone else? Who knows!

*Years are based on the day of the first fixture of the season.

And a reminder on scoring:

  • 3 points for correctly predicting the finishing place of a team in the final league table
  • 1 point for being +/- one position in the final leage table
  • A bonus point for correctly picking the league champion
  • One bonus point for each relegated team correctly predicted, up to three total. (Position doesn't affect this. If you pick them 18th, and they finish 20th, still a bonus point cuz they're going down)
