Post subject:  WORLD CUP 2018 TIPPING COMPETITION

I am testing the water to see if there would be any persons on here interested in taking part in a World Cup 2018 Tipping Competition. I am as yet unsure as to whether to base it on an entry fee type of competition or just to let it be a free-to-enter competition. A few people have recently donated to the site to help keep it going, so I am not sure how everyone would feel about a fee or not. If it works out that entry fee option is chosen, a prize for the winner and runner-up would have to be arranged beforehand.The competition would involve tipping a score for each WC game, a correct score would earn 5 points and a correct tendency score ( the winning team or the draw) would earn 2 points. these points then accumulate all the way through until the Final on July 15th. If two or more people are tied on the same amount of points at the end, the person who has the most correct scores/ tendencies will win. I have created a poll so as to see if this is feasible or not. If it proves to be worth while, I would update the ongoing points scoring on a daily basis. The tipping would be done on a 3 or 4 game day by day basis with details / deadlines issued if this goes ahead. Thanks for your time.

Unfortunately I am away for much of the time, and no access to internet, so I will not be able to join in! Otherwise, I would be happy for the £5 version....

You could submit some tips earlier, before you go off on holiday and then send a daily text in to me via your phone once I give you my mobile number...just a thought to help..

So, as things stand, we have 7 entrants, Myself, Silver, Rozza, KK, Embers, Dances and Lankywolf.

Any other members wishing to participate, then please send your tips in on this thread before the kick off time of the Russia v Saudis game, I did state midday as a cut off earlier but will compromise by nearly 4 hours to be fair to everyone depending on work shifts etc etc. The game will be closed to new entrants after 16-00 tomorrow, the start time of the opening game.



The next set of tips required will be for these games below:

France v Australia

Argentina v Iceland

Peru v Denmark

Croatia v Nigeria.



These tips should be received on here by 11-00 a.m Saturday 16th June before the start of the France v Australia game.

Just about an hour to go before the first game starts. Competition will then be closed for new entrants. Good luck everyone, have fun and enjoy the tournament.

Two minutes to kick off, new entrant predictions now received after this post time are invalid. Let the games begin...

Post subject:  Re: WORLD CUP 2018 TIPPING COMPETITION

Result was: Russia 5 Saudi Arabia 0.

Two points each for Silverstone, Rozza, Knocker, Embers and Gladbach.

No points for lankywolf and Dances with Wolves.


Three games tomorrow, Egypt v Uruguay at 13-00 on BBC, Morocco v Iran at 16-00 on ITV and finally: Portugal v Spain at 19-00 on BBC.

Good start with the home nation filling their boots against a weak Saudi team. The Saudi's could have played all night long and never looked like scoring. Russia not that good but the second goal just before halt time had the game won and they relaxed more in the second half and won in a canter with two good late strikes.
