Fantasy World Cup Competition (Mystery Prize on Offer)


Best Answer Simon, 20 July 2014 - 10:24 AM

Well at the end of a thoroughly captivating competition the only entrants remaining with a "will to live" are:

Mr I - 89 points
Tony C - 72 points
Jpredmore - 70 points

By sticking with it to the end they all deserve a prize; I must say it was rather complex and with hindsight...blah, blah, blah...

I'm just going to verify (or is it validate) Mr I's score, unless he has it completely wrong I think he is the convincing winner. I will be back shortly to confirm.

Added:

OK I'm back and I have MR I's score at 93. Admittedly I could have miscounted as one needs a degree in such things to compute, however allowing for a degree of uncertainty it was certainly a lot more than 72 and on that basis I declare Mr I the winner of this enthralling competition. Thankfully the next world cup is 4 years away...

 

The winning scoresheet.

I will be back again in another little while to announce the prize.

 

Added:

 

I figured after such a tense and stressful competition you may want to relax with a large strong coffee whilst squeezing on something nice and soft and perhaps a lucky pen for entering competitions. Here are your prizes Mr I...congratulations!  Please send me a PM with your address.

Thank you everyone!

 

Thank you Simon for a fun and exhilarating competition! :doctor:

 

Wowzers.  Thanks everyone for participating that participated.  I know that I always logged in to this thread in the morning first thing to see what was going on in the thread.

 

*hugs* for all.

 

It wasn't for England who got pasted on and off the pitch :crybaby:

 

Well Done  :sorcerer:

Sorry Tony.  I was impressed the USA team was able to get as far as they did.  But all sports are the same.  On a good day a bad team can get further than a good team on their bad day.   Not saying that any team was bad but there is always so many variables like injuries, travel distance, relative experience, etc that can effect the outcome of every game on both sides for a positive or negative boost.

 

We'll see how she goes next time in 4 years :rock:

 

Thanks Tony and to everyone else.

I don't know I wasn't keeping score, all I did was check the scorecards of members that submitted their scores.

Sorry my friend the deadline was last Friday and now the winner has already been selected.

 

We run competitions quite a lot, so there will be another along soon enough.

Dear Mr. Inc.

 

You are far too kind.

 

England simply looked outclassed. But perhaps that was the Lesson which  Hodgson wished to be learned.

 

On the other hand Roy does seem to have had some success with WAG control -

Dear Charles,

 

The defence certainly were out of their depth which has prompted the view that Hodgson's decision to leave a proven world class left back at home was a 'big mistake'.... huge....

 

I would expect better quality reference material from you though Charles:

 

'After all, behind every great man is an even better woman. And behind every great woman is a man checking out her arse!' :yikes:

 

Tut, tut ....... you'll be quoting The Sun next! :sleazy:

 

Regards,

 

Tony

:off_topic:

I realize that this is a joke about how bad an overseas newspaper is, but when I first read it, I thought you meant the Society for Cutting Up Men Manifesto, and I was like "Hooray for the women's revolution!"   :rofl2:

 

I used to read the Weekly World News like a bible but it's long out of print, which makes me, and I assume all other supermarket tabloid readers, sad on the inside.  Without it, I'll never get important food safety news like this.
