Bonus point for standard format exactly as the example below:
Burton 0-1 Reading HT Burton 0-3 Reading FT
Edwards 9 Barrow 48 Gunter 82
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
In the event of me failing to post a separate prediction, I'll use this example
Stam smiles through post match interview saying it's all about the five year plan and says fcuk you to Dellor , meanwhile Chinese owners don't even know we're playing and have forgotten where Reading is.
Prediction on Post Match Interview: Stam explains afterwards that Burton are an illustrious club with a great wealth of history and we should feel priveledged playing them. Stam then mutters that he thinks Coppell and McDermott ruined the club and that if they were never appointed things would look a lot more rosey.
