Sheffield Wednesday v Reading - Official Predictions Thread

by Snowball » 17 Apr 2018 20:57

Rules as per the previous few leagues games



Point for correctly predicting first team to score. You cannot use this
as insurance. For example Reading to win 2-0 but QPR to score first,


Bonus point for standard format exactly as the example below:

Wednesday 0-1 Reading HT
Wednesday 1-1 Reading FT


Reading to score first <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Bod 22
Wednesday 85


I ask for this because it saves time transcribing

Bonus points awarded for games of 3 or more goals where the goal sequence
is given correctly. You predict that spot on and get beaucoup extra points.

Anyone getting first Reading goal-scorer points, (must have result right for that half)
gets a 5 point bonus if they are within one minute either way


All older rules apply







Points awarded for HT Correct Result (1), HT Correct Score (3) (except for 0-0 which scores 1)

Further explanation. (at HT) You get 0 points for wrong, 1 point for correct result,
3 points for a correct score other than 0-0 which only scores 1 point
At HT or FT if you get the correct score you DON'T get 4 points for correct score (3) and result (1)


Points awarded for FT Correct Result (1), FT Correct Score (3) (including 0-0)

FT - You get 0 points for wrong, 1 point for correct result,
3 points for a correct score including 0-0

3 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+3 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

OWN GOALS

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 is awarded for the worst prediction


In the event of me failing to post a separate prediction, I'll use this example

if we nick a Win & Hillsborough. and
Barnsley lose away at leeds
than Reading are safe.

barnsley can’t catch reading, be cos we be on 46 point . and barnsley only can level on point but reading will have better goal diffence

How is this decided? If it just the prediction furthest from the actual result?

Well if Wednesday win, then the biggest Reading-win-prediciton would be the worst prediction

and vice-versa


if it's a draw, then it's the biggest win posted (could be 3-0 to Wednesday AND 3-0 to Reading (for example)


GD, goals scored is taken into consideration

so a 3-0 defeat is worse than a 3-1 defeat,
but so is a 2-0 defeat worse than 3-1

0-2 HT 0-2 FT ie Weds win. Goals 13, 29.

Like us, an injury crisis put paid to their season, but players are starting to come back now and this is a tough game.

BTW if someone posts what looks like "a silly" I don't count it

e.g. Wednesday 0-5 Reading (Barrow 5)

If it does actually happen though after you discount it, hypothetically, what would you do?

I feel like they should get triple points and a 500 word personal apology from you. :wink:

nope

The sillies are usually obvious. Winning 7-0 is less likely
than Donald Trump becoming US President.

I post them as NTD BTW and nobody (yet) has queried it
