Bonus point for standard format exactly as the example below:
Boro 0-2 Reading HT Boro 2-2 Reading FT
Edwards 9 Bod 45
I ask for this because it saves time transcribing
Points awarded for HT Correct Result (1), HT Correct Score (3) (except for 0-0 which scores 1) Points awarded for FT Correct Result (1), FT Correct Score (3)
2 Points added for first Reading Goal-Scorer if the score or result is also correct
( PLEASE NOTE: If you predict a first-half RFC scorer then your first half score/result decides your FGS bonus) even if things change radically second half
Example: You predict Kelly 25 and 1-0 HT, 2-1 FT. Kelly scores first half and Reading are 1-0 up at HT you earn 3+2 points. Second half we fall apart and lose 1-4, your HT score/scorer marks are still good.
The rules do not prevent you posting impossible predictions like RFC 1-0 HT, 0-3 FT
Last game we had an OG in Reading's favour (ie by a Cardiff player)
Such OG's DO COUNT as First RFC Scorer, as per most sane bookies
Remember -3 points "awarded" for the worst prediction
In the event of me failing to post a separate prediction, I'll use this example

Prediction aside, whenever we play this crowd, always takes me back to Elm Park days when Boro' scored after roughly 10/11 mins and three quarters of the away end started jumping up and down like mad 'uns. The rest of us just stood there, with Kirbs (RIP) amongst the ranks. The look on the Boro' boys' faces was a picture. They obviously had respect, as we stayed there for the rest of the game. Not even OB seemed that bothered. Ended up with a few us strolling out towards the end. Southbank in the background giving it large. For the record, we lost 1-0
Boro take the lead on '60, we leave it late to grab an equaliser with bod running through 1-1. After coming agonisingly close to grabbing a winner (Aluko with a tap in at the back post, hits the inside of the post, rolls across the line and is scrambled away), we concede a goal from a corner with the last touch of the game.
