Guess The Goal 21/22; rules, comments and The Table 🥅
« on: August 10, 2021, 06:12:53 PM »
Hello everybody and welcome to Guess The Goal for 2021/22! 🥅



This is the introduction to the competition known as Guess the Goal. Players guess the minute a goal is scored during games at home and away, during this season.

It’s either our goal or an unfriendly one but it’s still a goal and it scores you points! That’s 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 there’s a chance this season, we’ll play an Aston Villa Women’s team fixture again! 👍


Excited yet? There’s more....




How Many Points Can I Score?


Scoring: spot on the minute - 11 points!!! 

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 😁

No goals - everyone gets a point for playing the round! 😃



HOW TO PLAY

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 and any variation on this theme.

If you want to Guess an extra time goal, it’s 45+ and 90+ .
(Just use the + and don’t worry about which extra minute it is.)


Any Goal scored within reach of your Guess scores you points!!!

This means that a good guess can net you 20+ points when we play Liverpool. 🤞



Points and your total score are based on the minute a goal is published as being scored, on the BBC.

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

Results for a Round are posted at the end of that thread and the updated Table appears in here.  The final result will be posted here at the end of the season. 



You’re 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 you’ve tripped over your fingers or thumbs (e.g. you’ve 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 can’t have a second guess by this method. Your first must be a GTG disaster.



Look What You Could Win!


ROLL OF FAME

Result of 20/21 season:

If a friendly Mod (like Legion) could move this to the stickied bit of Match Threads and Player Ratings (and move the one from last season) I would be most grateful, please!

Thanks!

Congratulations to manic-road who is top of the Table for the end of August! 👍🎉😃

Well played Rotterdam 82 who was top for 3 days after the CCup R3, earlier this week👏🥳✔️

It’s rather close all the way up the Table at this stage, as anybody can get a score in double figures to lift them above the rest. Hopefully, this gets even more likely with Buendia knocking ‘em in, AEG’s pens, Ings, McGinn and Archer, and Ollie’s return.

Anybody who has nailed a 🥅 spot-on so far (and got at least 11 points thereby) is denoted with a 🌟 for each time they’ve done it!

You can revive your chances any time, just Guess The 🥅!
Round 5 is after the international break and will be the match away at Stamford Bridge on the 11th Sept so 👀 in Heroes Discussion around the end of next week.

Other guessers gaining were Skerra 🌟 ( the second spot on!) Godfrey Brian and simboy! And ALITA of course.



Round 10 is a WSL game next Sunday at 2 pm, Reading v The Mighty VILLA!
It’s up and running in HD right now.
Be there or be square!

Welcome to Drummond and georgecorbett as our newest guessers 🥂

A spot-on Guess in any Round is recorded as 🌟
