Leeds v Reading - - - - - - Match 41 - - - - - 2019-2020 Prediction League

by Snowball » 19 Feb 2020 09:44

+2 for postings up to thirty minutes before team announced

+4 for early postings (by 23:59 day before game) (NOON for Evening Kick-offs)

+0 for postings after team announced (unfair advantage)

+2 for correct format as per usual

So, to clarify, post the correct format before midnight Friday
for Saturday games and you bag 6 points whatever the result


CLARIFICATION
of Winning or Drawing from Behind.


This refers to RFC or opponents going behind and then,
at the final whistle either drawing or winning from that
losing position.

So, for example

Leeds 1-0 (10th minute, half-time, 80th, whenever)
Leeds 1-1 Reading FT

is clearly Reading drawing from behind.

Match sequences such as

Leeds 1-0 Reading
Leeds 1-1 Reading HT
================
Leeds 2-1 Reading FT

DO NOT constitute "Drawing from Behind" in the sense we use it.

I am writing this for Match 41 and for forty previous matches we have not had such silliness

Consider this as "Points gained from a losing position"



=========================================


Example Post

Leeds 1-0 Reading HT
Leeds 1-1 Reading FT



Leeds to Score First <<<<<<<<
Reading to Draw from Behind <<<<<<




1-0 (32) Leeds
=================
1-1 (62) Puscas


The above is an "example" prediction, really not mine - don't have a clue - (unless I forget to post!)

In the event of me failing to post a separate prediction, this will count as mine


If you want points for stating:

Team X to Draw from Behind <<<<<
Team X to Win from Behind <<<<<<

This MUST BE explicitly stated

Exactly!


Equalising but then losing is irrelevant

I have posted on this MANY times


“Drawing from behind” means getting a point after being behind, as in when the ref blows the final whistle.

With respect , I've read this five times, what's the difference in being one nil down , hence we're behind in the game , and score in the last minute , to draw ......from behind ?

And what's the difference between losing during the game and being behind in the game ?

Because I am ONLY awarding extra points based on THE FINAL RESULT

Consider when Sky or BBC talk about "Points gained from a losing position"

No body struggles with the idea of WINNING from behind

Are we going to add a side coming from 1-0 down to lead 2-1 but then losing 3-2, 4-2 or 5-2?

give me a break!

SECOND. I have made this manifestly clear in previous threads. It's about getting a positive result from a losing position ONLY

The crucial points are "from a losing position" and RESULT

If Reading go 1-0 down, then equalise, but eventually lose 6-1, why on earth would we say "well-done"?

We say well done for RFC (or opponents) FIGHTING BACK, from a losing position, and that is based not on the 17th, 33rd, 45th, 60th minute but the final score

Look at Franconian's (correct) statement.

S/he doesn't say LEAD from behind, but WIN (as in "at the final whistle")
