- 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...

Yeah, was bummed when I realized I'd forgotten to check in and do this. I was in the middle of an epic 33 hour door-to-door trip back to Hong Kong with wife and sick baby. Last time I fly a US-based carrier, I think. What a f*cking joke.

I'll give it a go anyway:
June 29
Paraguay 1 v 2 Japan

From what I've been able to deduce, since the last update, ethangl got 4 points (nailed SPAxPOR) and I, along with most of the frontrunners, got three points. sleepyjose got zero and fell down a bit. So, ethangl leading by 5. I'm on your tail, dude.

Hey just to clear up the confusion... and it's because I didn't state any real rules so it's my confusion... but:

A win at this stage is still worth 3 points. The overall winner is the important part. How you choose that winner does not matter. The 1 point that comes from a correct full-time score is secondary, and useful, but secondary.

Hence:

If you choose Paraguay 1 v 0 Japan you still get three points. Because Paraguay won.

If you choose, in the same situation, *Paraguay 0 v 0 Japan you get 4 points. You have still chosen the correct winner as well as the score.

In the same situation, Paraguay 0 v o *Japan is worth 1 point.

In the same, *Paraguary 13 v 13 Japan is worth... 3 points. It's the win.

I only say this because ypioca, you acutually got 6 points. You picked Paraguay to win and you picked Spain to win.

Once again, sorry if that wasn't cleared up earlier but really it's all fun anyway.

So... after the round of 16, we're left with a few guys at the top where there are really close to 10 people could conceivably win by getting scores, and then a whole mess in the middle where people are fighting for pride.

People have been being knocked off the top of this board for ages... the only constant has been Zomp's suck.

- ethangl maintains the two point lead at the top from second, but the field moved up inexorably behind to make a mess of the next 5 or 6.
- I reckon anyone there in the top 8, with the right picks and/or top scorer could sneak their way up to first...
- Tthe people who have a horse left in the top scorer race with David Villa have been italicised, and at least SoxFaninCali is threatening to jump right out to win this thing if he comes through...
- A couple have Xavi or Van Persie who theoretically could each score 37 goals in their respective last two possible games, but I haven't bothered highlighting them...

---------------------------------

Also, not that it's a huge deal, but I'm pretty sure I should have 92 points instead of 88. Looking at the past standings, I think I was somehow shorted four points from the group stage (given 64 points when I think I earned 68). Since then I've been given the proper number of points (17 and 7, respectively) but I'm still coming up four points shy of where I believe I should be in each standings. For reference (spoilered so it doesn't clog the page):
Group A
South Africa 0 v 2 Uruguay (3)

Group B
Argentina 2 v 1 Nigeria (3)
Argentina 3 v 0 Korea Republic (3)
Nigeria 1 v 1 Korea Republic (3)
Greece 0 v 2 Argentina (4)

Group C
Slovenia 1 v 2 England (3)
USA 2 v 1 Algeria (3)

Group D
Germany 3 v 0 Australia (3)
Ghana 2 v 2 Australia (3)
Ghana 1 v 2 Germany (3)

Group E
Netherlands 2 v 0 Denmark (4)
Netherlands 3 v 0 Japan (3)
Denmark 1 v 2 Japan (3)
Cameroon 1 v 2 Netherlands (4)

Group G
Brazil 5 v 0 Korea DPR (3)
Brazil 3 v 1 Cote d'Ivoire (4)
Portugal 4 v 0 Korea DPR (3)
Korea DPR 0 v 3 Cote d'Ivoire (4)

Group H
Honduras 1 v 2 Chile (3)
Spain 3 v 0 Honduras (3)
Chile 1 v 2 Spain (3)

GROUP STAGE: 68 points (given 64)


Germany 1 v 0 England (3)
Argentina 2 v 0 Mexico (3)
Netherlands 2 v 1 Slovakia (4)
Brazil 2 v 1 Chile (3)
Spain 1 v Portugal 0 (4)

ROUND OF 16: 17 points + 68 = 85 (given 81)


Ghana 0 - 2 Uruguay (3)

QUARTERFINALS: 7 points + 85 = 92 (given 88)

Yep, you're right. I found out where I didn't give you 1 point for the Brazil v Cote d'Ivorie game, and didn't award you 3 for Nigeria v Korea.

As an aside there's probably a few more like this sprinkled through... my apologies etc and if anyone wants to go through and check all their own feel free!

I'll amend.
