WORLD CUP COMPETITION


Hi all

Just in case you hadn't heard. The World Cup is taking place over the forthcoming month, and I thought it would be a good idea to put you footy fans to the test.

It's very simple, all you have to do for the first stage of the competition is to name the correct results of the matches listed. You get 3 points for getting the correct scoreline, 1 point for the correct result but wrong scoreline, and 5 points if you end up with the correct group order

For the second stage you will have to do the same again, (but of course we don't have the teams for that just yet).

To enter, just reply to this post, listing the results for the following games, and I can sort out everything from there.


ENTRIES MUST BE IN BY THURSDAY EVENING!!!!


France V Senegal
Ireland V Cameroon
Uruguay V Denmark
Germany V Saudi Arabia
England V Sweden
Paraguay V South Africa
Argentina V Nigeria
Spain V Slovenia
Croatia V Mexico
Brazil V Turkey
Italy V Ecuador
China V Costa Rica
Japan V Belgium
South Korea V Poland
Russia V Tunisia
USA V Portugal
Germany V Ireland
France V Uruguay
Cameroon V Saudi Arabia
Denmark V Senegal
Sweden V Nigeria
Spain V Paraguay
Argentina V England
South Africa V Slovenia
Italy V Croatia
Brazil V China
Mexico V Ecuador
Costa Rica V Turkey
Japan V Russia
South Korea V USA
Tunisia V Belgium
Portugal V Poland
Senegal V Uruguay
Denmark V France
Saudi Arabia V Ireland
Cameroon V Germany
Nigeria V England
Sweden V Argentina

WORLD CUP COMPETITION UPDATE

  1. Brundlefly = 8
  2. Sharky = 6
  3. FB = 2
  4. Chartman = 2
  5. Flea = 1
    [/list=1]

    Well done to Brundlefly for taking an early lead, We'll catch you up in a bit ;)

    How none of us got Germany to win 8 - 0 I'll never know. I thought Ireland looked good for 3 points, but that's football for you.

    Well I'm off to watch the England Game - so all that remains to say is COME ON ENGLAND

So far it seems like I'm the only person in England who thinks we've still got a good chance of Qualifying for the next stage. We're in the same position as Sweden, but half the nation have written England off......Well not me, you have it here in Black and White, we will make the next stage :cool:

PS If anyone knows why I have a huge gap above my table, can you please let me know. It's written in HTML and I can't see where I've gone wrong :(
Thanks

Brudlefly's lead is looking very fragile, and I can't believe I'm last. :eek:

WELL DONE ENGLAND. What a superb game, although can you please not leave it so tight next time. My personal man of the match was Nicky Butt - he was all over the park from start to finish and really gave Argentina problems. :)

Pretty chuffed im in second, and a great performance today by england!... FTSE the reason for the blank space is that our software automatically converts all line breaks (where you press enter) to a <br> tag, so if you can make all your html on one line.

Hi all

It's second round time. So if you can please post your predicted results for these games, it would be great. The scoring is the same and the results to predict are after extra-time (so no penalties) :D

Denmark v England
Germany v Paraguay
Spain v Rep of Ireland
Sweden v Senegal
Brazil v Belgium
Mexico v USA
South Korea v Italy
Japan v Turkey


Thanks :)
