Are Oxford brogues better than Eastend bovver boots?

Post by OtmoorYellow »

Quid: how many will Oxford score? (1 point per goal)
Bottle: how many will Charlton score? (2 points per goal)
Carpet: how many yellow cards will be given to Oxford? (1 point per card, 2 yellows to same player counts 2)
Rouf: who will win the first half or will it be drawn? (3 points for win, 1 for a draw)
Ching: who will win the second half, or will it be drawn? (3 points for win, 1 for a draw)
Tom mix: total number of penalties awarded (1 point each)

TB: total attendance (nearest without going over wins)

Is Charlton "East End"? Surely it's Sarf of the river?


Q. Two
B. Two
C. Three
R. Charlton lead
C. Oxford win
T. OK this is where the scoring gets interesting since clearly you get no points for guessing zero! So, um, 1.

TB: 6,888

Scoring query: I assume you only get points if you are right? So if you say "two goals" and it's three goals you get zero? So no penalties for being wrong, but no points for being wrong either? Similarly if you say "three goals" and two goals are scored, you get zero (not minus one)?

I may be over-thinking this.

That was my intention yes. So correct you get points, wrong = 0
