                      Jah Womble ws top scorer with 4 along with San Bernardhinault, myself and ad hoc, and now leads linus by three points, with Duncan Gardner just half a point further back in third. Nobody predicted Mandzukic getting the first booking.

                        Jah Womble is our winner. Congratulations. Be honest everyone, how many of you were expecting a Spurs fan to blow up in the run in? He beats linus by three points, with Duncan Gardner just half a point further back in third. Last tournament's winner Wouter D and longeared share fourth. Nobody predicted an own goal would open the scoring in the final. The Bretwalda was spot on predicting that there would be 169 goals in the tournament and earns the 5 point bonus despite not predicting again after the first round. Had he not predicted then the 5 points would have gone to Wouter and he would have joined Jah at the top of the table.
                        Thank you all for taking part, and if I don't see you in the regular competition then maybe we'll all meet again for the Euros in 2020.

                          Congrats to Jah, many thanks to Sean and well done all.

                          Team DG will be on the beach...er training ground in up country Bulgaria in readiness for the new season

                            Glad to see I was top scorer in the final round, making up for some woeful scores early doors. Congrats to Jah on his title and a hearty Guzman to Sean for sorting this for us all to enjoy

                            Comment


                              Bugger, I forgot all about the final 2 games. I wouldn't have improved on my score anyway. Cheers for organising this Sean, it's far better than pissing money away at the bookies.

                                Yes. Many thanks to Sean. It's pleasing to know that knowing nothing and just showing up every round is almost enough to get me a spot in the Europa League

                                  Well done Jah. Deserved win.

                                  Thrashed by longeared again. Paradigm shift. Clearly need to go back to the drawing board next season. Need a bit of Deschamps realism, maybe.

                                  Thanks again Sean. See you in August.

                                    Congratulations Jah, missing out on the CL places in the regular season but following it up with the World Cup - like Kanté in that respect I suppose. Ninth place for me, so out in the second round after winning the title (looks like I was about right with Aguero then).

                                    And huge kudos to Sean for running such a great game, you must put in a hell of a lot of effort and it's really appreciated.

                                    I hope a good number of people give the regular season game a go - the thread is over here in the Games forum - it's mostly based on the Premier League's Saturday matches with a few curveballs thrown in each time, and can be especially devilish on FA Cup or International weekends. Who can resist seeing Guy Profumo failing to use the Quote function every week, or issuing his "Standard reply"?

                                      Wow - only just spotted this! Thanks everyone - and particularly to Sean and his Shed for some (non-Raheem) sterling work, as ever. Not a vintage performance on my part, but delighted to win a PC for the first time ever. (Bit like Harry's Golden Boot, perhaps...)

                                      Special thanks to The Bretwalda for calling it spot-on with the tournament goals, thereby helping to secure my overall victory. (He added, a little selfishly.)

                                      'Til the new season, then...

                                        It seems like I only got 1 pt for this semifinal prediction set below, shouldn't that be worth 4pts instead... and a share of the Glory with the diplodocus?

                                        France 2-1 Belgium
                                        Croatia 2-1 England

                                        Edit: I guess the predictions must be through the first 90min and preclude the silver goals, Jah got 3 pts for his 1-1 England-Croatia pick. GJ Jah, and thanks Sean.

                                            Yes linus, all predictions at the knockout stage are at 90 minutes.

                                              Thanks Sean for keeping track.
                                              Minor point of order, an own goal opener is classed as "no scorer" by the bookies, so Greenlander should get the bonus for the final and edge ahead of Satchmo, although your comp, your rules.

                                                Thanks, linus. He's a Mamenchisaurus, though.

                                                That'd be like me calling you Schroeder.
