    FA Cup 5th Round Game (2015-16)


    Here’s a fun competition, and it’s a one-off game, so make a prediction and then sit back and enjoy! It’s a game orientated to a few special friendly forums, namely:

    Reading - Royals Rendezvous
    Blackpool - Back Henry Street
    Peterborough – The Posh Forum
    Sunderland – Black Cat Chat
    Newcastle – Toon Forum
    Watford – WFC Forums
    WBA – Baggies Zone
    Leeds – LUFC Talk
    Liverpool – Talk the Reds
    Bournemouth - CourtOffside



    For this round it’s EXACT scores. Experience tells us that it’s slightly unstable doing ‘FA Cup Upsets’ as in the previous rounds. Why? Because there are usually too few ‘minnow’ teams (no disrespect) getting through to this stage, and still fewer upsets themselves. So from now on the format changes … but is equally fun.

    Have a look at the matches underneath and just give the full-time scores, as you see it going, for just FOUR (matches of your own choice) of the 5th Round games coming up. Replays never come into it, we are looking at only the initial match…


    POINTS to be gained per game...

    EXACT SCORE with correctly named winning team 6 points

    RIGHT RESULT and winning goal margin correct (e.g. you say a team wins 3-1 but it finishes 4-2, or 2-0) or a draw 'one goal out' (e.g. you say 1-1 but it is 2-2) 4 points

    RIGHT RESULT (but winning/draw goal margins out) 3 points

    WRONG RESULT but reward for an entry! 1 point

    + Postponed or Abandoned? In this unlikely event the game is void, but you are awarded two points for the inconvenience!

    Editing of any of the 4 predictions is allowed up to kick-off time of the first match played but then are counted as definitive ... but it is YOUR responsibility to tell me on the thread or by PM!




    a reminder of what matches we are talking about, just need FOUR games of your choice:

    Arsenal v Hull
    Reading v West Bromwich Albion
    Watford v Leeds United
    Bournemouth v Everton
    Blackburn v West Ham
    Tottenham v Crystal Palace
    Chelsea v Manchester City
    Shrewsbury v Manchester United


    Please put the score without confusion! E.g.
    Arsenal v Hull 2-1
    Shrewsbury v Manchester United 0-3
    Etc.

    Points and the placings for this comp will appear on this thread within a couple of days after the last match for this round has been played … I’ll give both the complete points for your forum, and the top dozen overall positions on all forums together for even more prestigious bragging rights!

    Good luck!

  27. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    So basically the incompetent Michael Oliver disallowing a perfectly good 2nd Watford goal has cost me top spot.

    I'm writing a letter of complaint to the FA. I expect compensation for this debacle.
     
  28. Sorry Meh! I would have had 3 more points if it was not for his incompetence as well, which would have made me the outright National winner, therefore the compensation should be mine :sign1:
