    World Cup 2010 picks!!!

    Post by baker.simon on Wed Jun 02, 2010 9:51 pm


    Roll up roll up. The World Cup is just around the corner, and from our point of view it would be silly if we didn't do something to add a bit of competitive edge to a tournament that happens only every 4 years.

    You all played our Premier League picks game that was staged over the last few weeks of the domestic season, and it appeared to work well. So with that in mind, the decision has been made to roughly follow the same rules we set out for them.

    In short, it will work on a points based table, with 1 point being awarded for a correct result, ie a win/draw or loss, with a further 2 points being awarded if you manage to guess the correct score.

    As the fixture list is not as condensed as the normal domestic league, both myself and Vic Taylor have decided that we will be putting a weeks worth of World Cup fixtures up at once, which will probably be a maximum of around 20 games each week. This will give everyone an opportunity to get their results in for the full week in advance and will mean that you guys don't necessarily have to check back here every day, at least not until we reach the knockout stages.

    For clarity, a week will be classed as running from the Saturday through to the following Friday, with both days being inclusive. The next week will then start on the next Saturday through until the Friday after, and so on. For the first week only, the opening Friday will be counted, whilst on the last week of the tournament, the closing Sunday will also be counted. That means that the dates of each round will be:

    Round 1 - Friday 11th June - Friday 18th June

    Round 2 - Saturday 19th June - Friday 25th June

    Those two rounds will incorporate ALL group games. From then on we will progress round by round after we know who will be contesting who.

    Round 3 - Round of 16 games

    Round 4 - Quarter-finals

    Round 5 - Semi-finals

    Round 6 - 3/4 placed play-off, plus the final itself.

    Prizes.

    Settle down, it's not a real prize. After some discussion about what to do in way of a prize, the decision was made to award the eventual winner with a small winners badge that will be placed on there profile, in full view of all posters in this forum.

    PLEASE NOTE - Whilst the table is being updated and the next round of fixtures are being sorted, this thread will be locked and any old comments relating to the resluts from the previous round will be deleted.

    I hope this clarifies things, and I will endeavour to get the fixtures up as soon as possible, certainly by the weekend at the very very latest.

    I'm thinking PL for definate. Perhaps CL aswell, if people want it? I suppose it could be done with the cups aswell I guess? I'll leave it up to you guys to decide. If you all want to do the whole lot then fair enough, or if you just want to pick one or two competitions and focus on them then that is also fine.

    Sy and I actually have lives... surprisingly. Razz I doubt we'd have time to do all those.

    Pick your favourite 2 to add on to EPL and CL?

    Lives? Speak for yourself. I'm married, I signed that privelage away some time ago Razz

    Seriously though. It is doable, Vic. The easy thing about the league is that the fixtures are set weeks in advance, as are the cup competitons, and the fixtures aren't as congested, which makes it easier to setup and leave. Effectively it could be done every week and left until the end if that week.

    Champs League is the same, and the cups.

    So for definate, we'll do EPL and CL. I would say League Cup aswell as the FA Cup doesn't eally start properly until after christmas, and I'm fucked if am writing or guessing how VS Rugby will do against Spalding Athletic Razz

    Not fussed either way, but we could take our own little puppies away. So you do a and b and I do c and etc? Thoughts Wink

    I agree guys. It's EPL and UCL. If I'm to pick two more, let it be FA Cup and League Cup.

    Cheers.
