    The summer break nears its end and Cardiff will take another stab at a Premier League campaign, hopefully having learned from the lessons they failed to grasp first time round. If last season's promotion was considered an over achievement, then keeping the Bluebirds up this season would be the crowning jewel of a glittering managerial career for Neil Warnock. Following a summer of modest spending in a league awash with squads filled with multi million pound talent, most of us would happily take 17th place in May. Anything else would be a remarkable bonus. Whatever lies ahead of us, I'm determined to enjoy the coming season given that a short time ago we were supporting a team that had fluttered away the parachute payments, playing negative dull football and heading nowhere. <ok>

    With the return of football, also comes the return of The Blue Prophet Prediction League (BPPL) to give you the chance to predict City's league fixtures in the form of a lighthearted (or deadly serious) competition. Its a good laugh and hopefully gets some of you to take an active part in the board a bit more! Comment your commitment and you'll be placed in Division I or II (as described below) depending on where you finished last season. New members welcome!

    Any suggestions for changes/proposals to the rules are welcome! Divisional Previews will be up later!

    Honors Board
    11/12 - Siambluebird
    12/13 - Eldon Bluebird
    13/14 - BluefromBridgend
    14/15 - BluefromBridgend
    15/16 - Sayer77
    16/17 - Irishbluebird
    17/18 - William5551

    Scoring System

    Scoreline

    Correct Score (CS) = 4 pts
    Correct Result (CR) = 2 pts

    Cardiff Scorers
    Name one Cardiff scorer for a single point.
    Can opt to predict no Cardiff scorers (by not naming a scorer) for a single point.

    Three missed predictions on the bounce results in a 2 point penalty.
    Predicting all 46 games = a single bonus point.

    Example (Of a typical prediction)

    Bournemouth 1 - 3 Cardiff City
    Zohore to score!

    Any question please feel free to ask! Good Luck <ok>
