    Just a thought.
    This is a good idea, so I've implemented this for this season. There is a couple of points though:- no bonus points will be awarded on games where scores have been entered 'automatically' like this (no Jokers will have been played, and I don't think I could award any shock points that would have been scored 'accidentally', as it were); and no player that has posted predictions will be denied shock bonus points because of these automatic entries, ie shocks will still be decided on the number of actual predictions posted.

    These automatically entered predictions are marked in red on the following sheet...

    In the early years of this I couldn't bring myself to predict that we'd lose and I thought I'd jinx us if I said we'd win (craziness, I know!) so I always put us down to draw 1-1. Got me nowhere! It's only since having a proper shot on our game that I've got anywhere near challenging at the top.

    This would be reasonably easy, look out for this in the next few weeks.
