    FA Cup Quarterfinals Scores 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 other forums too, 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
    West Ham – Cockney Boys


    This is an exact score competition, so just give the full-time scores as you see it going for ALL FOUR quarter-final games coming up. Replays never come into it, we are looking at only the initial match


    POINTS to be gained ...

    EXACT SCORE with correctly named winning team 6 points

    RIGHT RESULT and winning goal margin correct (e.g. you a team wins say 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:

    Friday 11th March – 7.55 pm KO
    Reading v Crystal Palace

    Saturday 12th March
    Arsenal v Watford
    Everton v Chelsea


    Sunday 13th March
    Manchester United v West Ham


    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!

    Here goes for the stats from all forums with how many people see just the Reading v Palace game result (given my special interest as a Royals fan!), I only name scores where a prediction has been given:



    READING WIN
    1-0 = 3
    2-0 = 4
    2-1 = 10
    3-2 = 1
    3-1 = 2
    3-0 = 1
    21 predos in total


    CRYSTAL PALACE WIN
    0-1 = 3
    1-2 = 5
    0-2 = 5
    1-3 = 2
    0-3 = 1
    0-8 = 1
    17 predos in total


    DRAW
    0-0 = 1
    1-1 = 16 [maximum individual score prediction]
    2-2 = 2
    19 predos in total



    So basically - it's WIDE OPEN !!!

    Thanks to diab0 for running the competition. Perhaps an Arsenal win 6-1 was not the best prediction
     
  25. Meh!

    Meh! Pre-Dictator

    Yeah thanks diab0. It's always good fun so thanks for the effort.

    Classic Meh! going on this weekend. A strong first day, hopes are buoyed then the inevitable and painful collapse on day 2. Happens every week with my FPL team as well!
