Bonus point for standard format exactly as the example below:
Reading 1-0 Brentford HT Reading 1-0 Brentford FT
I ask for this because it saves time transcribing
Points awarded for HT Correct Result (1), HT Correct Score (3) (except for 0-0 which scores 1) Points awarded for FT Correct Result (1), FT Correct Score (3)
2 Points added for first Reading Goal-Scorer if the score or result is also correct
( PLEASE NOTE: If you predict a first-half RFC scorer then your first half score/result decides your FGS bonus) even if things change radically second half
Example: You predict Kelly 25 and 1-0 HT, 2-1 FT. Kelly scores first half and Reading are 1-0 up at HT you earn 3+2 points. Second half we fall apart and lose 1-4, your HT score/scorer marks are still good.
The rules do not prevent you posting impossible predictions like RFC 1-0 HT, 0-3 FT
Last game we had an OG in Reading's favour (ie by a Cardiff player)
Such OG's DO COUNT as First RFC Scorer, as per most sane bookies
Remember -3 points "awarded" for the worst prediction
PLEASE NOTE, if I fail to post a separate prediction, my "example" will count.
Reading start brightly and conceded a goal on the break. Around 15 minutes. Brentford dominate the rest of the half.
2nd Half. Brentford dominate early on in the half but then start to sit back. Reading pass the ball across the back and sometimes into midfield. Stam waves his arms around a lot at this point making it look as if this isn't what he's asked the team to do. Brentford score 2 goals on the break.
Fulltime. Fans boo.
Stam's press match comments include "We played well" and "I don't know why these type of fans bother to go to games if they don't support the team". Tim Dellor shits his pants again having to ask the awkward questions.
Usual Stam nonsense afterwards...."Somethings we did well, somethings we did not so well", followed by "Its a tough league and Brentford are a top team" followed by "there were many plus points, we played well and maybe deserved more" followed by we are heading in the right direction and it was a great point"
