I am adding a rule, a biggie.

Any Nobber thread-bombing the prediction thread, causing spats
etc will be removed from the competition immediately and permanently

It's hard enough doing this without having to trawl through dumb posts.

If you have issues with the data-collecting threads, POST IN A DIFFERENT THREAD

if in doubt, don't post it.

This thread is for individuals to post their predictions, ask for
clarifications etc. The odd comment like "Wow, Seahawk 5-0?"
or whatever, that's fine, but we all know what is fine, and what's destructive.

This is not aimed at any individual. I can't do the work AND firefight. I just can't

What are you referring to? Barnsley scoring? Its 3-1 to Reading but Barnsley scored a goal.

3-1 Reading, Barnsley scoring in the 55th minute.

It is posted correctly, possibly should have removed "Reading" on the Barnsley goal but that's the only possible thing I can see you would take as incorrect.

Your whole policy on people being rude works both ways btw....

I know what it is. You changed the format

It's normally like this (as emphasised every thread

1-0 Reading (Puscas) 27
1-1 Luton 42
================
2-1 Reading 55 (Aluko)
3-1 Reading 80 (Baldock)


You don't have to say the equivalent of "Reading are winning 3-1"

So it's

Overall Score, who scored it, time

1-0 Reading (Puscas) 27
1-1 Luton (42)


I have to scan down this stuff quickly and paste it into a spreadsheet.

If people move the formats around it takes much, much longer

NO "POSSIBLY" ABOUT IT. You made it hard/different to read


I would normally read

Reading
Reading
Reading

======

and just "see" we have gone 3-0 by HT

then I see

Reading
Reading
Reading

so naturally see us as going 4/5/6-0 up

Strictly-speaking I don't need the Reading bit as I know if it's Joao it's Reading

But it's neater

I guess if you had posted

Reading 1-0 Joao 6
Reading 2-0 Swift 19
Reading 3-0 Yiadom 41

================

Reading 3-1 Barnsley


That would have been neat, and CLEAR
