Canada vs. Brazil predictions: Can you call it?


Recommended Posts

Well, since I haven't seen Mimglow around for awhile I thought I'd take over keeping track of the predictions. And what better time to start than now, with Canada sort of "starting a new cycle".

I myself am a bit of a statistics junkie. I like looking at the numbers![8D] So I'll keep track of everyones results and make a nice spreadsheet or something to tabulate them.

This will be a serious competition folks! Pride is on the line!;)

So scoring will go something like this:

3pts for correct result (ie Canada wins)

2pts for correct scoreline (only if result is correct)

1pt for correct goal scorer (time doesn't matter)

0.5pt for cards (time and colour don't matter, max 3 guesses per side)

So, for example if Canada is playing England and I predict:

Canada 1

(goal: hume, cards: hume, stalteri)

England 2

(goals: Owen (2), cards: Gerard, Rooney, Hargreaves)

and the correct result is:

Canada 1

(goal: Radzinski, Cards: stalteri, friend)

England 3

(goals: Rooney (2), Owen, cards: Rooney)

Then I would get:

+3 for correct result

0 for scorline

+1 for a correct goalscorer

0.5 + 0.5 = +1 for cards

TOTAL: 5 Points.

Anyways, I will be keeping track of all the stats! Join in. it'll be fun. If you miss a game don't sweat it, I'll have a column for pts/per game. All predictions must be posted by game start time!


Now, my predictions for Canada-Brazil!
