21 rows in set (0.00 sec)

how can i set the unentered result .for now it is like all the games wether played or not are at 0:0.i need to be able to get  accurate table log of all the games such that if result is not set this can be identified and not set to 0:0. should i set the default to Null,or not null for the  HomeScore and awayscore?

NULL represents a lack of information. This would be a good time to use it.

 

In my opinion, you should have another means of knowing whether the match has been played - deciding that a match has been played should not depend on there being a score recorded. Perhaps a status ENUM (eg, "scheduled" vs. "played") or a played flag (false/0 vs. true/1).
