If you click HERE you can see the outcome of the Newcastle game. StepneyPhil scored 79 points and leads the field after matchday 1. If you click on anyone’s entry you can see what they predicted. I’m in an embarrassing 122nd position with 52 points. Mind you, Keithy, who brings up the rear in 166th place only managed a paltry 27 points.
On Tuesday night we play Charlton Athletic in the Caraboa Cup. The Predictor League is now open to receive your predictions HERE.
Even if you didn’t enter the first match, do still put a team in for these matches as everyone is bound to miss the odd game, and there is always a single match leaderboard as well as a cumulative one.
And remember, you need to sign up for the new site, before you can enter a prediction. You can do that HERE.
Just a reminder that as you know we’ve got a new site coming. We’re launching it in stages, and the new Predictor League is ready to go.
Please click HERE to sign up for the new site. Hundreds of you have done soalready. Remember, you won’t be able to comment on the new site when it launches, or take part in the new Predictor League, which launches for the Newcastle game unless you register before midnight on Friday/Saturday.
Your existing log in details from this site will NOT be carried over. You have to SIGN UP with a new profile before you can LOG IN. To be clear, the new site will not recognise your login details for this site.
So please register your current on screen user name, and follow the instructions. You will receive an email asking you to verify. Your account will then be ready to use. If you don’t receive an email, I will verify it for you, but please do let me know if you don’t. Check your Spam/Junk folder too. Each day I will look through the signups and manually approve anyone who appears genuine! Remember, without a verified account you will not be able to comment or take part in the Predictor League. I have now manually approved everyone who has signed up so far.
Once you are verified, and logged in, you will be taken to the Predictor League page for the Newcastle game. You will see it’s a little different to the old one with a few extra fields to fill in. Each match will score you a maximum of 100 points.
If you haven’t registered your prediction yet, you have until 12.01am on Saturday morning to do so.
Whenever something new is launched there are inevitably one or two glitches, so please do email me firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment here if you notice anything going wrong.
We’re now working on completing the rest of the site, but this was the most complex bit so had to come first. So for the time being, both sites will be operated in parallel.
NOTE: Please only comment on this thread if it relates to the new site. If you want to comment on West Ham related issues please use the post below.
UPDATE: If you are getting an Error 404 response, it is almost certainly because you haven’t obeyed the above instructions. To repeat, you have to create a NEW account. You cannot sign in with your existing username and password.
UPDATE 2: I am looking to recruit a bit of new blood. If you fancy writing regularly for the site, ideally once a week, or maybe once a month, I’d love to hear from you. At the moment, the rundown looks like this…
Saturday/Sunday David Hautzig
Monday Hamburg Hammer
Wednesday S J Chandos is returning to the fold
Thursday Nigel Kahn
Friday Dan Coker’s match preview
UPDATE 3: Hope you don’t mind Iain but I’m adding this to your article to assist those who are struggling to sign up because of the password anomaly. – Lids
