the correct way
Well I hope you all take note of this, it is a quick lesson in how to make a totally unbiased report of any event Football or otherwise
1 first know your subject by this I mean don't make any self ego trips about any professed knowledge on your subject as this only leads to
antagonistic feelings in your audience and will only lead to derisement when you fail miserably to live up to your self proclaimed title
2 Asses the situation and offer your opinion as to why your fore casted result will come to pass, state your case logically not hysterically and it
such way that people will not know you are partisan to a certain outcome
3 offer an alternative to your projection and above all don't brag until after the event
4 Take any defeat of your forecast on the chin philosophically and wish good luck to the winners.
5 do not issue any weeping posts as they can be collected for future castigations in any correspondence against you.
above all take it in the spirit of sportsmanship and smile
