Hello and welcome to another season of the UKFF Football Predictions League! We're now done for 2023-24.

The most important rules were unchanged: generally 10 matches per round, three points for an exact scoreline, one for a correct result, various chances for bonus points across the campaign.

The updated table went on this line throughout the season. And since it's over now, here is how it all ended up.

Unlike the previous season, detailed Fantasy League discussion was generally discouraged this time.

Well, it's that awkward first week when there's no table to link to yet. Full disclosure: you're all still listed on my spreadsheet in the order you entered, not by who scored the most points this time. Was nice to have a full house by Friday night though. The main beneficiary of the lack of a table is seph, who begins with a 5-point haul. Vegeta also failed to get an exact score so lands on 7, with RoryFice finding a different route to the same amount. 

At the other end, the returning ShyDad is back with a bang as your early leader on, but unfortunately he has no screenshot of the standings to frame his 15-point bonanza on, with TildeGuy just behind on 14. I'm further back on 10 points, but that's still enough to be joint third alongside¬†Pete ‚Äď good to have him on board!

The average score this time was a whopping 9.4 points, which (while still way lower than the theoretical maximum of 30) is huge for an ordinary round. Let's see if we can keep up the high scoring and early picking for the rest of the season. Wins for Brighton, Palace, Parma and Cagliari all proved fruitful, as did score draws at Dean Court 'the Vitality' and Stamford Bridge, with a home reverse for Everton turning out slightly tougher to foresee.

The three German Cup ties were blowouts for the favourites, making them almost universally good for one-pointers but ultimately useless for correct scorelines (can't help but notice that the team from Waldorf is named after a hotel ‚Äď they 'only' lost 4-0 so somebody might've managed that one). Still, those glorified training exercises do make you appreciate the actual shocks and near misses all the more, but I do acknowledge that's not much help when it comes to a prediction contest. Luckily all rounds apart from the final are now played in midweek so that competition won't be bothering us again until May.

I'm still waiting for a couple of people to PM me with Dare 2 Disagree picks. You've got just under a month to get that sorted, but in the meantime, people who got their act together will get an early chance at bonus points. In line with Seph's original vision that D2Ds should take place roughly every other week (and since nobody had a turn in Week 1), there'll be one among the next set of 10, which will be up in the original post shortly. Wanted to ease newcomers/returners in gently this time, but from next week, of the other 9 matches could also be the 'wildcard' fixture with more potential bonus points attached to it.
