    BC have you been going into those woods again....remember baby Bear has probably got a rather protective Mum & Dad around the back of some tree.

    Please don't forget the song.

    If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise.
    If you go down to the woods today, you'd better go in disguise.
    For every bear that ever there was, will gather there for certain.
    Because today's the day the teddy bears have there picnic.

    Or did you entice baby bear out of the woods....the things people do to win.....you could teach sensible a trick or too by the looks of it....I'll promise not to use the Pentagon computer system this year....if I can win the 200 pts end of season bonus.... my other predictions can be rubbish and I'd still win.

    Could be the same one Plym as they generally stay with mother for a couple of years.

    I'd double check that spray BC. They might have misheard you in the store and given you Hair Spray instead. Mind you if they got it wrong you might look very smart at your funeral.

    Quite possible sensible.....hair and bear could sound similar when your running like hell away from a roaring bear.

    OK....we have four in at the moment.....Joe, sensible, BC, Plym.

    Possibly two more regulars to come....notDistant and Lyndy.

    But anyone who browses this site is welcome to join us....just a bit of fun....so open to all who come in good faith and whatever team you support...it just doesn't matter.

    Please ask us if you don't understand the rules.

    Normally Greenarmyjoe oversees the weekly running of this prediction league...but at present Joe has a family illness that is obviously at this moment taking priority....and we all wish him well over that situation.

    So roll up, roll up... all who would like a bit of light hearted fun this coming season....remember your mid and end of season predictions for Argyle...plus this coming Saturday's match predictions...before kick-off time which I believe is 12.30pm (Salford game) this week.

    We normally use the BBC match line ups each week....makes it easier for Joe to check your predictions to add up your weekly score.....and you can always check with Joe if you think he has got your total wrong at any time.

    Of course you can.... this isn't Championship footie ....but Div2 predictions so no worries for you of predicting a City defeat....BCFC had a reasonable season last year.....more than we can say about Argyle...who got relegated with only 3 minutes of the season left....how the hell did Southend beat Sunderland.

    Just ask if our prediction league confuses you in any way....just here to help....what can we call you for short other than smh ?

    We can call him Alfie after the alphabet.....(see what I did there). I'm sure smh will do him or her fine. Anyway we are all usually very confused on here so we should ask that if they understand the rules please let us know what they mean. Except me of course who apparently is normally p**sed.

    Can we have a clarification of the Nil-Nil Rule please. I firmly believe that even if you predict a 0-0 scoreline, you should still be entitled to enter the First Goal Time competition. After all, you could predict a 5-0 win and it turns out to be a 0-6 defeat and you'd still claim the first goal time. Two separate competitions, entirely independent I say.

    Not that I think we'll be having many 0-0's this year.

    All agreed? Good, I thought you would.

    We'll let Joe decide on the 0-0 issue.....

    My view is that if you go for 0-0....then that is a choice that you have decided between 0-90....when 0-0 is not the result how can you be allowed to have a second go.....that is the same as saying that if my time chosen...say 10 mins doesn't happen ...then I choose another time beyond 10 mins as well....two bites at the cherry....:huh:.....one choice for everyone seem to be fair....the answer seems to be that everybody chooses 0-0....because it allows you to have a second go....very strange.
