Guess The Goal 20/21; rules, comments and tables! :)
« on: September 08, 2020, 07:51:17 PM »
Hello everybody and welcome to Guess The Goal for 2020/2021! 🥅



This is the introduction to the competition known as Guess the Goal - the minute a goal is scored, at all of the games during this season.

Itís either our goal or an unfriendly one but itís still a goal. Thatís the basis of this  game.


How This Works:


I post a clearly labelled single match thread in Heroes Discussion.  You choose which minute of that match a goal will be scored, posting your guess in there before Kick Off. 

We play home, away and Cup competitions. If thereís a chance this season, weíll play an Aston Villa Womenís team fixture! 👍





Excited yet? Thereís more....




How Many Points Can I Score?


Scoring: spot on the minute - 11 points!!!  (Oh, yes!)

Up to 1 minute away 10 points.

Up to 2 minutes 9 points.

Up to 3 minutes 8 points.

Up to 4 minutes 7 points

Up to 5 minutes 6 points

Up to 6 minutes 5 points

Up to 7 minutes 4 points

Up to 8 minutes 3 points

Up to 9 minutes 2 points

Entering the round 1 point 😁



You need to post a guess identifying any minute of the match between 0 to 90.

   e.g. 5. 13. 29. 34. 48.  57. 61. 72. 86. 90.....

If you want to Guess an extra time goal, itís 45+ and 90+ .
(Just use the + and donít worry about which extra minute it is.)


Any goal scored within reach of your guess scores you points!!!




Scores are based on the minute a goal is published as being scored on the BBC.

Rounds are launched up to a week before. Very few overlapping rounds will occur. To avoid these, I will use some very short run-ins, so be prepared!  8)

Results are posted for each match at the end of that thread and tables appear in here.  The final result will be posted here at the end of the season. 

Youíre always welcome to post comments and questions about GTG in here, thanks. If it makes more sense in the thread, fair enough!



Really Important Bit

You post just one guess of just one minute in a round.

And

No editing of that post, please. 


For the worried:
If youíve tripped over your fingers or thumbs (e.g. youíve accidentally posted 3+ digits, 1 lonely digit, a strange emoji, a gif or a flight of random apostrophes) then leave it alone, post again and tell me that this is your real Guess.  I might even catch on.

For the opportunistic / litigious:
You canít have a second guess by this method. Your first must be a GTG disaster.


Look What You Could Win!


Inaugural Roll Of Fame:
Result of last mini season after just 10 games:


48:   Towser!    8).       Wow!  Brilliant, Congratulations 😃

42:   CDBWF!   ;D.       Cor!  Still got it, CD!  😀

37:   Rotterdam82!  😀     Still a Champions League spot    😁





And now, stand by for the first Match Thread to appear, as if by magic, in HD. In a bit.
GTG Burton v Villa, is on its way to H&V tonight! 🥅


Thanks for playing GTG 😃

Thanks, Legion 👍


I was considering a rules change since last season but I consulted, thought about it and decided to keep it as it is 😊

Rules as posted in here and the match thread.

    For anybody wondering about the consultation. I thought Guess The Goal could use a bit of tension.

    I thought if we had only one guess on any minute/number it would be better, and I still hanker back to that.  (But the present GTG is supreme and totally rules.)


    But especially I wanted to keep it to a simple post in a Guess thread.


    So, I have considered -


    • Putting a list of 0-90+ in a thread somehow (🤪) and me renewing after every few guesses so that you see what is happening with it
    • Asking each new poster to copy and paste and add their Guess in numerical sequence so that the players make the list


[iii]Reassigning duplicate guesses to the nearest unadopted numbers (NUN)

[/list]





Reasoning in reverse order:

If I were working at home all the time as I was during the mini season I would go for the last option, no problem. Any post anytime, bosh. Sorted.

As it is, I am back in the office so what happens if someone goes for an unclaimed number and at the end of the very long day with other potential guesses, I then have to move them? 

Revolution, thatís what. I am a peaceable soul in GuessThe Goal. Itís a game.
No revolutions. Please.


Next one

Not a chance of this working



First one

Mega images in posts, completely illegible on phones and questionable presentation.


So there you have it.
The reasons for GTG in its present form and I hope everyone on H&V enjoys it when you play!

Edit I canít get a point for the third option but I know you will get it.

Letís hope for more goals and matches going our way this season.

Hi Louzie, I guess you like a challenge, so here's a question that speed reading the rules didn't show the answer for me.....

What happens if there are no goals?

In cup games then this could extend into extra time with the '90+'  guess, and if it goes to penalties then I suppose the first penalty scored is in this category, but what if its a league game with no score even in the 90+ category?

Meantime I'll post a carabao cup (vs Brstol City) guess.

Many thanks and UTV

Hello 260475, thanks for the questions.

If there are absolutely no goals at all at any time in the game then everyone who played that round gets a point for guessing. 👍 Itís a tradition.

And, we have a new rule!

Your suggestion that just the first goal counts when a match goes to penalties is spot on!  ::).   Thanks, sorry for the pun.

To make it clear, with cup penalty competitions, whatever the result:

Itís happening in the 90+ minute, so 11 points for the first goal are awarded. Thatís it.
Itís the same rule if a 30 minute extra time is played.

Thanks very much!

NíZMAV is still top of the table! 

Legion and thick_mike are only 5 points behind, thanks to a brilliant bit of guessing that saw 2 goals overlapping on their crucial minutes!

manic-road and ALITA also gained ( and were brilliant) from this cracking passage of play by the Villa, especially AEG and new boy Traore, 😀 😃!

Meanwhile, simboy, simon ward 50 and I did rather nicely off the third 🥅. Thanks very much, Ollie! 😁

Weíre still in The Cup!  Hurray!





👀  GTG Round 4 Fulham v Villa is up and running in Heroes Discussion right now! 👀

Be there or be square.
