Read Jose's Mind Challenge (Everton 22/02/2014)

Recommended Posts

You can see a full explanation of the Read Jose's Mind Challenge here but the idea is pretty basic. How well can you do at predicting Jose's starting 11 for the Premier League fixture against Everton on Saturday 22nd February?

All you have to do is add a reply listing the players you think will start the game. I'll award 2 points for each player correctly predicted to start as well as bonus points for getting all eleven, or for predicting more starters than anyone else does.

You may change your mind and enter new selections as often as you like but no team lists posted, or edited, after 10:45am GMT on Saturday 22nd February will be counted.

I'll post a table of the results after the match. It will help me to speed this up if posters can give their team in a standard format, with one player's name per line. Like this example: -

My Predicted Team

Schwarzer

Ivanovic

Cahill

Terry

Azpilicueta

Mikel

Lampard

Ramires

Salah

Baker

Eto'o

Good luck all.

The winners will be those members who make the highernumber of accurate predictions in their ties.

There is no home advantage in these ties and there will be no replays. All ties will be settled on Saturday. If any tie is drawn, injury-time and, if necessary, extra-time and penalties will be used to determine a winner.

Injury-Time

This means taking Jose's first substitution into account. If the first sub introduced is a part of either member's prediction then that member scores an additional hit. If this results in one member having more hits than the other then the tie is over and that member wins. If scores are still level however, we move to...

Extra-Time

This means taking all of Jose's substitutions into account. If any sub introduced is a part of either member's prediction then that member scores an additional hit for each such sub. If this results in one member having more hits than the other then the tie is over and that member wins. If scores are still level however, we move to a...

Penalty Shoot Out

Penalty takers are allocated to each member and take kicks in a best of three shoot out. If scores are level after three kicks each, the shoot out continues on a sudden death basis until we have a winner.

Penalty takers are not Chelsea players. Instead they are other CFCnet members who have made predictions for this round of the challenge. Each member will have a number of penalty takers allocated to them but the same penalty taker will not be allocated to both members in the same tie.

Penalty takers score or miss their kick based on their scores in this round of the challenge. I will calculate the average number of correct predictions per entry across all entries for the round. Penalty takers whose score is above that average will have been successful with their penalty, otherwise they will have missed.

Penalty takers can be allocated automatically but, if they wish, members are free to use their judgement and nominate a list of penalty takers who they think are most likely to achieve good scores. If members wish to nominate then they need to post a list in this thread at any time up to 1:00pm GMT on Saturday 22nd February 2014. As with predictions for the line-up, members are free to change their list of penalty takers if they wish as long as changes are made before the deadline.

The member drawn first in each tie gets the first name on their list allocated then further allocations are made alternatively with each member being allocated the highest remaining name on their list.

A list of penalty takers allocated for each tie will be posted in this thread after the deadline passes.

If anyone would like me to try to do a better job of explaining any of this, I'm happy to answer questions posted here or sent in a PM.

Good luck to all twenty members involved on Saturday.
