CHN Predictions League: Newcastle United vs. Manchester City

This is what you've done to us, Rockets4LIFE. I hope you're happy.

It's very possible that when Newcastle United and Manchester City walk off the pitch after their match on Sunday, we could all know who has won the title. Anything can happen, of course, but a strong showing by the frontrunner will mean almost certain glory. Veterans of the Predictions League will know that I am not referring to Manchester City, but our own Rockets4LIFE, who currently enjoys a 15 point lead over second place. Anything but a 0, and R4L can start celebrating.

That's right, Rockets4LIFE is Manchester City in this scenario, and you should all be rooting against him. He stopped Newcastle's unbeaten streak to start the season! He broke Hatem Ben Arfa's leg! He wears baby blue! I'm going to go ahead and give Rockets the same treatment I'm giving City this weekend: There's no doubt in my mind that he will win this week outright. He's competing for a title, and he's too good to lose.

Rules

  • Before the game, predict the winner (or you can predict a draw), the final score, and goalscorers. The deadline will be 5 minutes before kick-off (1325 BST on Sunday).
  • Predicting the outcome correctly will give you 1 point.
  • Predicting the exact score will give you 5 points. Failing to predict the exact score but getting the total number of goals correct will give you 1 point, as will predicting one half of the score. If you predict a total of 6 goals or more, you are ineligible to receive points for predicting the correct goalscorers (see below). However, if 6 goals or more are actually scored, the ineligibility will be lifted. This rule is designed to prevent people from predicting an abnormally high score in order to better their chances of earning the bonus for predicting the scorers.
  • For each goal scorer you pick correctly, you earn 2 points. You may not pick more scorers than you did goals in order to hedge your bets. (In other words, if you predict a 1-0 score, you can only choose one scorer.)
