Do you have access to a sports almanac from the future, a la Marty McFly? Share the results of Saturday's match with us!

Newcastle will meet Reading Saturday in what is being dubbed the "Pardew Bowl" by some. If you're keeping score at home, this is the first of 6 meetings this season that Newcastle will enjoy with clubs that have past connections to our venerable, newly extended leader. Oh, and since you're keeping score at home, why not go ahead and share your prediction with us? Here the rules for our fair game:

  • Before each Newcastle United match, predict the match winner (you may of course select "draw"), final score, and who the goal scorers will be. Also, make a choice on the prop bet (see below).
  • Deadline is five minutes before kickoff.

Points are assigned as follows:

  • Correct winner = 2 points
  • Correct score = 5 points (so correct score + correct winner = 7 total points)
  • 1/2 of correct score = 1 point
  • Predict total # of goals correctly = 1 point
  • Each goalscorer predicted correctly = 4 points
  • Each goalscorer predicted incorrectly = -1 point
  • Prop bet = +/- 1 point

A clarification on the last part: You don't lose points for failing to predict that Jonas Gutierrez would score in a given week. However, choosing Papiss Cisse will result in loss of a point if he fails to score. Your total score may not dip below 0 in any given week. The winner(s) of each round will get a point added to their total in the table.

This week's prop bet:

Over/under 5.5 tackles + interceptions for Jonas Gutierrez

Here's the current table - it's not too late to get into the game:
