As Tommo999 noted I was late in placing my Joker on game. Glad I did.
Possibly the bad weather deterred a larger crowd than 1419. However Get Carter was very close and gets an extra two points. Well done GG.
Fartvs Antiques [!] was one of only two predicts [Dom H] to forecast correct score but the only one to place Joker on that prediction. Hence top score for day. Well done FA. :D
Amazing that with 4 different goalscorers, there were only 6 who predicted any of them. :roll:

Good news is that FGR are in 2nd round of FA Cup without need of a replay that has befallen most of our nearest league competitors. :D

Dilemma.
Forecast amended after match had kicked off and would give you maximum points.
Unfortunately I didn't read your original forecast to award you points on that prediction.
I'm sorry but in fairness to others I've got to disallow it. [Unless there is support for your forecast to be accepted.]

Just forgot to add my joker, and played it before any goals were scored. Had 4-0 before kickoff. This forum is one hour out too. Won't be editing posts in future that's for sure!

Fair do's.
I believe you and will add your prediction & points to your score but no Joker.
But please on any other occasion add a later post. Thanks ta-muchly. :)

It’s not the forum but your account that is an hour out. If you go to User Control Panel (at the top of the page) Then Board Preferences and the select DST / Daylight Saving to “No” you will be on the correct time.

The other thing to be aware of if you edit a post or do it at the last minute is that sometimes when you hit submit it goes through a sequence of telling you there are later posts and asking if you still want to edit before you submit. On a mobile that message is below the bottom of the display line (under the keyboard) and you may miss it. You may think you have submitted but it won’t show on the thread until you confirm yes to submit

Thanks both. Forum now showing correct time! I'd assumed the form would detect users local time!

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.
