Bollocks. Forgot to take a top scorer. I would have taken Higuain fwiw (after todays performance I would no longer be taking him it would be fair to say!).


No worries, you can have that.

I had that one on the nose as well.

24 ZompFoShomp 31
25 ForceAtHome 31
26 Tangled Up In Red 25
27 crakerraker 23


Notes of interest...

- bostonbeerbelly might not know anything about soccer but with 30 points since the last update, including the first 1-1 Kiwi draw, maybe that's a good thing?
- Poor old Tangled Up in Red with 12 had by the lowest score...
- There are now only 3 people who haven't picked a correct score... Mrs Tony the Pony, Doug Beerabelli and... me.
- On that topic, I am coming 7th last but I am also beating Zomp and that is all that matters...

The Round of 16

The Round of 16 is here!

Please post your picks for the Round of 16. The last two games will be updated after tonight's results, but it is important to get the June 26 game choices in.

Understandably, people will not get their choices in, I bet, before the games are played due to lack of access.

We have two choices; For anyone who does not make a choice, they will be given a choice of the Group2 participant with a 0-1 win. ie Uruguay 0 v 1 Korea, USA 0 v 1 Ghana. Or they will get 0 points.

I'm leaning towards the away/Group 2 choice to keep it competitive.

Here is the lineup (to be complete tomorrow morning):

June 26
Uruguay __ v __ Korea
USA __ v __ Ghana

June 27
Germany __ v __ England
Argentina __ v __ Mexico

June 28
The Netherland __ v __ Slovakia
1G __ v __ 2H

June 29
Paraguay __ v __ Japan
1H __ v __ 2G

Yeah, sorry, you guys get Korea winning by 1.

With the penalties, yeah - if you want to pick the score and then the winner, no problem.

Don't forget... Not much time to turnaround before next round so when the Ro16 is ending, make sure to come back and get in your Quarter's picks!

I missed getting my picks in for the round of 16 (out of town/no internet access), but I'd still like to play if possible. I'll take no points for the games I missed, if that works. I was doing pretty well so I'd like the chance to continue.

June 28
The Netherlands 2 v 0 Slovakia
Brazil 1 v 0 Chile

June 29
Paraguay 1 v 1 Japan (Japan wins)
Spain 1 v 1 Portugal (Spain wins)

edit: If I'm out because I didn't get my picks in on time, that's fine as well. Whatever works.

I'd say bonus points if you picked all of them correctly. However, you went with England...

Top Scorer is worth 5 points by the way... There are a few people near the top hoping Brazil can make it the whole way on the back of Luis Fabiano!

21 SydneySox 74
22 Doug Beerabelli 72
23 Phil Plantier 71
24 ZompFoShomp 71

26 Tangled Up In Red 56
27 crakerraker 47
28 rajendra82 17
29 Apisith 16
30 Williams Head Case 13

- Tangled Up In Red, crakerraker, chechusma, wee 162 and Tokyo Sox all failed to put in their picks for the Round of 16...
- Because only one of the Group stage second place winners, in Ghana, won, they each recieved 3 points...
- The favourites won every other game...
- That means the USA have been, so far, the only group winner to lose. You Americans should be cheering for Japan and Portugal to make the club more populated...
- Contrary to Tony the Pony's suggestion, he wasn't the only one to pick Ghana... mic99 did as well...
- There is still time for the 5 people who failed to make picks, and chechusma and Tokyo Sox in particular (they were at the top of the table!) to make their picks for the last 2 games as well as the Quarters, Semi's and the Final...
- Zomp is languishing at 24 and is happy three new people joined in because it puts him further from the bottom...
- I finally picked the score of a game, twice(!), and became the last person to do so... off the top of my head.
