World Cup Prediction Competition

Right, it’s coming up to the world cup so that means prediction competition time. The idea is you predict which team will get through each round of the tournament up to the winners and also the score for every game.

Send me an email / leave comment if you wanna play!

Predicted before the competition
· 5 – Correctly predicting the winners.
· 3 – For each correct team in each round.

Predicted before the kick off of the game in question
· 3 – For the exact score in any game.
· 1 – for the correct result in any game.

A score can be revised at anytime before kick off and if no score is given a default of 0 – 0 will be entered.
The qualifying teams cannot be changed after the start of the tournament.

For games that go to extra time / penalties only the score for 90 minutes will be counted.

The positions will be decided by:
1. Number of points
2. Predicting the eventual winner
3. Points predicted for scores
4. Points scored in a complex algorithm that takes gives more weight to games where less people have correctly predicted the score.
5. Bribes given

For fixtures and form etc see

I’m not charging money because it’s too much hassle to collect it all,

Watched the Eurovision semi finals yesterday...

Six middle-aged, serious-looking men from Lithuania stand on stage dressed in suits, looking like bank managers refusing a loan application. Then, as the song – half nursery rhyme, half football chant – begins, five of the men come to life and throw themselves into the performance, singing, shouting and, in one case, bellowing into a megaphone. “We are the winners of Eurovision!” they say. The sixth man stands motionless for two minutes before springing into action with a frantic dance that has to be seen to be believed. If this was the Eurovision Dance Contest, we’d have the winner right here.

... And this song qualified. Love it!

If I Were Sven...

Sven has never seen Theo Walcott play yet has still selected him for the world cup. Chris has seen Theo play - does this make him more qualified to be England manager? The question for Chris would be, who would you pick as an England XI out of the players you've seen?

Here's mine: (remember...)


RIO FERDINAND (Manchester United)
GARY NEVILLE (Manchester United)
GARETH BARRY (Aston Villa)

DENNIS WISE (Coventry)
MATT LE TISSIER (Southampton)
KIERAN RICHARDSON (Manchester United)

WAYNE ROONEY (Manchester United)
ANDY JOHNSON (Crystal Palace)

Bovine Line

Martin, in his latest blog entry reminded me of a recent train announcement I heard while going to Croydon on the train.

"We are sorry for the delay to this service but it was due to a cow on the line..."

that's fair enough, bit odd but you can let them off i spose. but...

"...between Birmingham New Street and Birmingham International"

Now what on earth is a cow doing on a train line in the middle of Britain's 2nd biggest city? Any suggestions?
