2017/2018 Premiership Plus Predictions Game Set-up

Okay, PPP friends. It's that time again. Believe it or not, we're only three weeks away from the start of the 2017/2018 Premier League season. So, this is our chance to chat about what's working well and what needs to be tweaked in our game. Here's the basic set-up that we used last season:

1. Premiership Champions - 10 points
2. European Qualifiers (Choose #s 2-5 in the Premiership) - 4 points each plus a bonus point for the correct order)
3. Relegated sides - 3 points each plus bonus point for correct order
4. Promoted sides - 3 points each plus bonus point for correct order
5. League Cup winner - 6 points
6. League Cup loser - 2 points
7. FA Cup winner - 8 points
8. FA Cup winner - 2 points
9. Europa Cup winner - 4 points
10. Champions League winner - 6 points
11. La Liga champions - 2 points
12. Bundesliga champions - 2 points
13. Serie A champions - 2 points
14. Premiership top scorer - 6 points
15. First Goalscorer in the Premiership (2 points for actual first goalscorer; 1 point for first goalscorer in the PPP pool)
16. First Player to Get a Red Card (including two yellow cards) in the Premiership - 2 points
17. First Premiership Player to Get an FA Ban for an Off-Pitch Incident - 2 points
18. First Premiership Player to Get a Second Yellow Card for a Silly Offense - 2 points
19. First Premiership Manager to Get a "Vote of Confidence" (shortly before getting the sack) - 2 points
20. First Premiership Manager to Get Sacked in the Premiership - 2 points
21. First Two Premiership Managers to Get into a Touchline Fight - 2 points

I'm planning to send out the initial call for predictions next weekend. You'll then have two weeks to get your predictions to me for the season. In addition, UWS has made the suggestion that we allow a change in the prediction for "Top Premiership Goalscorer" only up until the end of the Premiership transfer window; all of the other predictions will stay the same.

So, what would you like to change or add for this season's PPP? Let me know if the next week and I'll make those changes for the call-out.
