A lot of people guessed that Manchester City would win last week, and two contestants even got the 4-0 scoreline correct. There's some big scores on the table, but it's early in the game. Want to play It's easy.

The Rules:

  • Before each game, predict the winner (or you can predict a draw), the final score, and goalscorers. The deadline will be 5 minutes before kick-off.
  • 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 new 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.)
  • Standings will be posted each week.
And here are those standings: (I forgot about total goals scored rules, so these scores are adjusted from the previous thread).

It's never to late to join in the fun. We'll add to the excitement with a prop bet. Get it right, and you get a bonus point. (Last week, this was unofficialy when Shola was going to come on. He didn't, and since it started halfway down the thread, I didn't put it into the numbers above, if anyone guessed that he wouldn't appear). We'll go over/under minutes played for Paul Dummet...setting the mark at 60 minutes.
