    Anyone interested in this ?

    I will run it, 1 point for right team win 3 points for the correct score !

    I've posted the first few days of play, times are BST, you can enter daily or all at once, just make sure you put your prediction in before the game starts. Can you please put your scores in a different colour or bold, so they are easier to see.

    So
    • 1 for getting the winner correct
    • 2 for predicting a draw but not the exact score (eg you say 1-1, score is 2-2)
    • 3 for getting the score spot on

    Or did you mean something else ?

    For me there is no difference between a draw 2 points and predicting the score spot on 3 points. :sorry:

    Therefore may I suggest that getting the score spot on (win or draw) = 3 points, Predicting a winner = 1 point.

    Getting the score correct has to harder than picking a winner :eek:

    How about:
    1 point for correct winner or correct draw prediction
    3 points for correct scoring line

    That makes it all a lot easier methinks :yes:

    Right i'm just going to go with

    1 Point if you get the winner/draw right but the score wrong
    3 Points if you get the score bang on.

    Also updated the original post.

    Yea best thing for people to do is to quote the original, remove the quote tags, and the other text, then they can just stick their prediction next to it and the black text will show up rather well.
