Only one correct forecast by Red who placed Joker on result. :D
It is Now & Son was only other predicta to gain a point by forecasting FGR would not score!! and increases his overall lead. :D

Hmmm... bit of a dodgy time-stamp on the forecast? 20 mins after kick-off?

Thanks Paul,
I missed that and will obviously deduct 'no goal' score.
Sorry IN&S.

Oh that’s fine. We always post when the team is announced. Not sure why it didn’t appear ... the vagaries of the Internet. We’ll complain to BT and seek compensation!!

Hi
What time did you post the above?
Is the forum on the computer you used set to Brit Summer Time?

There seems to be a legitimate question mark over whether IT&S posted before kick off.
I tend to think he probably did but computer time was incorrectly set.
IT&S will have his point returned.

I’ve checked and the settings are correct and set to Summertime. I think the problem was user error as we were using the same device to experiment streaming the game onto our big TV screen (which eventually worked well) but all got a bit complicated and very fragile. I recall there is a feature that if when you post to a thread someone else has posted in the meantime it requires further action... it may have been that?

So thanks for the VAR review but in the interests of sportsmanship and bearing in mind this is all just for fun please deduct the point. If we miss out winning the competition by a point it will be a classic FGR outcome !

I think what you see on the forum depends on how your timezone is set? So this post is around 3pm BST, 2pm GMT?

So the errant post 7.04 GMT 8.04 BST?

I think the system probably stores times in UTC time, equivalent to GMT and will display the time on the posts according to the timezone you have set in your control panel, plus allowance for Daylight Saving, if you have that checked.

It doesn't matter what time your computer is showing.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
