Yes, after much deliberation, the VfG predictor competition is indeed back.
So, if you fancy winning a bespoke, one-of-a-kind, mug get yourself signed up for a VfG account and start playing ... it's that simple.
The first weekend's fixtures are already up on the system and are just waiting for you to start predicting... so what are you waiting for?

Best of luck!!
"Quick, Betty, get the telly on ... Pat Nevin's pullin' the away teams in the Scottish Cup draw."
Be honest. Have you ever tuned into a cup draw because of who may or may not be pulling the balls from the bowl? Be more honest, unless there's a chance of another car-crash appearance from Rod Stewart, do you care who makes the draw in the future?
No, of course you don't. All you really care about is who your team gets ... and hope it's a home draw (if you are a Rangers(2012) fan that's virtually guaranteed).
Last night I headed off to my bed like, I suspect, a whole lot of Hearts fans thinking 'Why the hell should I give a shit when the players clearly aren't?'
As Shakespeare once noted: Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. But then, after only five minutes in my scratcher, I had one of those epiphany jobs.
The way to fix the current malaise is as simple as it is complicated (bear with me).
if a player needs convinced to fight and to scrap and to want to win the ball, then he won’t be playing for Hearts.
They say actions speak louder than words. In fact, there is evidence to suggest that people have being saying that - albeit in slightly different words - since the Bible was first written.
The bottom line though is, it's true, actions, do indeed, speak louder than words.
After Wednesday night's horrible capitulation, a few people within the Hearts playing and coaching staff have said some pretty loud words.
In the immediate aftermath of that Scottish Cup exit, head coach, Ian Cathro said "...if a player needs convinced to fight and to scrap and to want to win the ball, then he won’t be playing for Hearts."
Well, Mr Cathro, after yesterday's result against Partick Thistle, those words now, very seriously, need to be acted on.
