I will actually post some actual blogs over the course of the season, when the mood strikes me, but this first one is actually just a game that I was thinking perhaps some of you would like to participate in. :)
A friend of mine runs this game on another Liverpool site, and I also run the same game in conjunction with that, through my own private e-mail address. I've only been here a day, but I've noticed that this is exactly the kind of place I have been looking for - intelligent, rational and compelling discussion about Liverpool, with a refreshingly positive and even optimistic undertone. So I have a feeling I will be sticking around. Therefore, I better post this on here now before any of you that want to play it, fall further behind (there have already been 2 rounds of predictions come and gone).
Basically, the game is to predict the scores of each of the Premier League games. You score 1 point if your outcome is correct (home win, draw or away win) and two bonus points (3 total) if your scoreline is correct. There are roughly 15 players by email through me, 10 players through email for my friend, and 30 or so players through the other Liverpool site. If we get a handful (5 or more would be nice, 10 or more would be ideal) that play regularly, I'll do a "Liverpool Offside League table" after each points update as well as the "overall League Table".
You are also competing with Mark Lawrenson, formerly of Liverpool and currently of the BBC, who does the same predictions each week, and is renowned for scoring very highly. Those of you that score higher than Lawro each week, get special kudos. If anyone would rather play by private e-mail, receiving one prediction e-mail per week from me and responding, then let me know your e-mail address and I will add you to that list.
So without further ado, if you would like to play, please get your 10 score predictions for this week's games in, before the matches kick off tomorrow. If you are late for a certain game or games, you can still enter predictions for those games which have not yet kicked off.
