A bit of fun for those who like this sort of thing, a competition to see who is the best at predicting this years World Cup outcomes.

All you have to do is sometime 10 minutes before each match kicks off, simply clearly predict who will WIN each match (or state that the game will end in a DRAW).

No need to predict the score or scores.

You will also be responsible to keep your own total scores of the points you win and MUST post them up at the end of round of games for all other competitors to see (and challenge) if they see fit.

I also won't be posting what matches are coming up - again that is your responsibility - but all the scheduled games can be found here -

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/world-cup/schedule/group-stage

To add a twist to the competition the points you can win increase at every stage of the competition - so group matches carry 1 point for a correct outcome (WIN/DRAW), the last 16 round 2 points, Quarter finals 3 points, Semis 5 points and final 10 points.

By doing it this way people can miss a few games along the way and still be in with a chance of winning, whilst those who predict every game should still have the edge as a kind of reward for their endeavour throughout the tournament.

The outcome prediction is for the normal '90 minutes' or so of game time BUT if you predict a DRAW is the knock out rounds you can earn 2 point BONUS if you state who will WIN after extra-time/penalties.  HOWEVER you LOSE 1 point if you predict the wrong winner!

If you pick a team to win during the normal 90 minutes you cannot go for the bonus points.

As the points rise for every round of the competition so to does the bonus/jeopardy feature too.


The last 16 round is bonus 2 / jeopardy 1 as above

Quarter finals - bonus 3 / jeopardy 3.

Semis - bonus 4 / jeopardy 6

Final - bonus 5 / jeopardy 10!


You are not required to go for the bonus points if you do not wish to do so AND you have to submit your bonus prediction at the same time as your initial prediction for the game - ie up to ten minutes before kick-off.


Any questions?



As always on games like this the person running them (that would be me unless someone else wants to volunteer please?) is final.


It's all about having a bit of fun and we hope people will participate and enjoy it.

Thank you.


Feel free to add your predictions to this thread as soon as you would like to (up until 10 minutes before each game kicks off of course!).

Thanks for joining in Peter but you don't need to go in to all that detail - the following would be all I would have needed -

1st Match - Russia and Uruguay to win (Group A)  -  Iran and Portugal to win (Group B)
2nd Match - Russia/Egypt draw and Uruguay win (Gr A) - Portugal Spain to win (Gr B)
3rd Match - Saudi/Egypt Russia/Uruguay both Draws (Gr A) - Portugal Spain to win (Gr B)


Thanks though anyway!


Very Happy

No worries mate, I just prefer to do it this way because I like making specific predictions. I don't know why because I'm truly woeful at it but I find it fun. Besides, we've got one of those giant wall charts here with all the matches on it and we're going to fill it all in as the World Cup progresses and I want to know just how close my predictions get to the real results. I know, anal right but hey, I'm not ashamed of being a complete nerd for stats. It got me my current job because no one else who applied for it knew the difference between a spreadsheet and a camel's hump Smile

I told you I'm rubbish at this prediction business, almost as rubbish as Saudi Arabia just played. I expected them to lose but the last twenty minutes were just woeful, the worst performance I've seen since we took that 7-1 spanking against Reading. It was horrible and in truth Russia were unlucky to be held to just 5 goals.

Very early days and plenty of times for everybody else to join in if they would like.

These are tomorrow games - which ones are going to win (or draw)?

Actual result NOT a late prediction: Egypt 0 - 1 Uruguay. A very late winner apparently. Iran 1 - 0 Morocco, another late winner there. Woo-hoo! I'm 3 for 3 so far! Laughing

Ok

France, Denmark and Croatia win and Argentina Iceland draw,

so I make it that Peter gets 2 more points, LT 2, BTID 2 and (a warm welcome on board to) Boggers with just a single.

So at the end of today's games Peter leads with 5, LT next with 4, BTID then with 3 and new boy Boggars with 1,

Masses of games (and points) to go yet!


Sunday's games are -

Costa Rico v Serbia
Brazil v Switzerland
Germany v Mexico.


Everyone welcomed to play - it's free and all you have to do is say which of the two teams will win (or whether it will be a draw instead).

Easy peasy.

Go on give it a go - it's certainly not too late to play and you might even find you like playing!

Very Happy

Mexico beat Germany, Brazil held by the Swiss and a Serbian win over Costa Coffee - some unexpected results today then.

So much so that only Boggars managed a single point - BTID would have had one if he posted 10 minutes before the Serbian kicked off - not 10 minutes after!


So scores after these games are as follows - Peter leads with 5, LT next with 4, BTID then with 3 and Boggars now on 2.

Tomorrows game are -

Sweden v S Korea
Belgium v Panama

and


ENGLAND v Tunisia



So what are the results going to be?
