Predicting Cup Games with Potential for Extra-time/Penalties

Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

Dear Friends,

As we move into the final stretch of the season, we now enter the realm of cup games that potentially need extra time and penalties to win. To try and clear up and potential confusions, here are the rules:

For Cup matches where a result is required, and where extra time may be played, I will allow extra time score progressions to be predicted, with correct predictions receiving 5 points each. For example, if I think Chelsea will beat Arsenal 5-4 on penalties after a 2-2 draw after extra time in the Carling Cup final, I might predict this: 1-0, ht, 1-1, xt, 2-1, xht, 2-2, ft, win on penalties. If I am absolutely correct, I will get 40 points.

Please note that I give 5 points each for ht, xt and xht but not for ft. I never give points for ft anyway because I already give points for correct full time score. And you don't need to predict by how many goals we'll win or lose a penalty shoot-out (just whether we will win or lose).

Hope this clears things up for you.
