WRITING INSTRUCTIONS*********


1) Where will you go to write your preview.

- It all depends on what division your team is in.

If your team is in League 1, you will do this.

Go to the home page > click League One > Create Thread > Put your preview in the box > Click submit and your DONE.

If your team is in the Championship, you will do the exact same thing but go to 'Championship' instead.




2) What do I need to write?

This is how I would write my preview out.

Paragraph 1 - Discuss the 2 teams who are playing, recent form and a little history in previous fixtures.

Paragrpah 2 - Go into some team news on both sides. Discuss Injuries and how they are likely to effect things.

Paragraph 3 - Discuss potential formations your teams may play and give a prediction on the game.
It's simple that easy.


3) What do I name my preview as?

- You name your preview the exact fixture your previewing.

So if your a Nottingham Forest fan and your previewing Forest vs Leeds. Your title would be...

Nottingham Forest vs Leeds - The Preview!


Once your done, your preview will be attatched to the websites homepage, which isn't yet active. People will be able to comment and view your preview. To help get the viewing figures for your personal previews up, you can copy a link from your preview to Twitter/Facebook any banter groups or indeed your own personal teams forum itself.
4) What happens if someone does the preview before me?

- We are looking for 2-3 writers for each club, sometimes people will beat you to it. If that's the case, go into there thread and add your preview underneath theres. You can compare thoughts, opinions and predictions in there between yourselves and your fellow fans. Please DO NOT open another thread, it will be immediately merged together.



5) What happens when I don't have anything to write?!
- Please come online and check out what is happening around the forum. People may have commented on your preview, or replied back to you after a game has finished. Remember, previews are only valid for a few days, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't use the site! Come back each day and see who is online, we are bringing a chat box in within a few weeks of the site being online!





Here is an Example of a preview in a fixture between Fulham and Cardiff....


'Cardiff City head to West London in what last year would have been a Premiership relegation battle. The Bluebirds have started the new Championship campaign in a strong manner, picking up 7 points out of a possible 12. Fulham on the other hand couldn't have asked for a worse start, losing all 4 of their opening fixtures. Last season Cardiff did the double over Fulham, with a 91st minute goal from Jordon Mutch giving the Bluebirdsa 2-1 victory at Craven Cottage, before a Steven Caulker brace ensured the home side picked up another 3 points in a match that ended 3-1.

The Bluebirds do have a few injury problems, Craig Noone being the most significant absentee, still struggling for fitness after a long spell on the sideline. In addition to Noone, Cardiff will also be without Aron Gunnarson and Ben Turner who are both currently nursing their wounds. Fulham on the other hand seem to have a full strength squad to throw at Cardiff in the hope of grabbing their first Championship points. And with new 38 year old Hungarian keeper Gabor Kiraly now in their ranks, they are only getting stronger.

Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Cardiff are yet to pick the same team for 2 consecutive games, which makes my task of having a guess of the line up, quite a bit harder. I'd imagine that this is a realistic attempt of the away team's line up, and although Ole has announced that Kiko Macheda will play a part in this game, it's unlikely that he will start.
Fulham are a bit easier to judge, with £12 million pound summer signing Ross McCormack ready to attack his old employers, you would imagine he will be in line to lead the line ahead of Hugo Rodallega. I'm going to go for a 2-1 win for Cardiff in this one, I feel as if they have to much quality throughout the team to grab a victory'
