And Gregorian Calender is the winner!
After much debate and discussion we have decided to use the Gregorian Calender as the metric for 'when.' The rules are as follows;
There are two time periods and then the individual months inside those time periods. The first time period corresponds to first half of the season, August to the end of December. The second time period corresponds to the second half of the season, January to the end of May. Because that's too easy, I've decided to split the time periods up into their individual months. August, September, October, November, December for the first half of the season. January, February, March, April and May for the second half of the season.
If you pick correctly that Mark Hughes will be sacked in the first half of the season, and he is, but you have predicted he'll be sacked in October and he's sacked in November, you get a total of 10, 5 for the correct manager and 5 for the correct time period. You miss out on the 10 for the correct month.
If you predict that Hughes will get the sack in November, and he does, you get the bonus 10. 20 in total, 5 for the correct manager, 5 for the correct time period and 10 for the correct month.

Nothing complicated here. The deadline to have your predictions in is September 3rd, the day after the transfer window 'slams shut' in true Sky Sports News style. I highly recommend to wait until at least August 15th/16th to submit your predictions. In fact, I won't be taking any predictions until at least August 15th. This is merely to tell you to start thinking about and researching your predictions.
A little favour, would you mind reccing this because it's the first post that is imperative for anyone partaking to see.
