After second two knock-out games
=========================

Score 1 point if you had Holland in the last eight: (FM, bossyb, Oxford)
Nobody had either Greece or Costa Rica in the last eight.

The number in front of the dot is points scored. The number after the dot is approximate points still playing for. There will be errors after the dot but so long as I'm careful in front of the dot it will all sort itself out in time.

(1) FrankMunro-371 34.29
(1) bossyb 31.25
(0) lockedon 30.26
(0) knocker knowles 29.17
(0) MoscowWolf 28.25
(1) OxfordWolf 24.25
(0) Muz 23.26
(0) muss 23.10 <------ cannot win now :x
(0) toonwolf 22.25
(0) Ironfistedmonk 22.21

If it mathematically possible for you to work out - just how many points are left to play for including the pre-tournament prediction placings etc. I guess, that really, I would like to know where I would finish NOW including all additions - deductions etc, post Brazil v Cameroon.

It gets more difficult as fewer games remain. The barstewards refuse to accept my high scoring 0-0 predictions which is frustrating - shall add another £10 to the Coach's bribe pockets. :wink:

Ps. You're doing a great job, proud of you. :wink:

Ta. :D

They are two different comps, I hope you realise. In this one the number after the dot should be the number of points you are still in with a chance of getting, and adding the two numbers together would in theory give you your current highest score possible. I haven't gone deeply into the possible outcomes though.

In the other one, the highest possible score in a match is 17 points, I think. So this morning there were 8 x 17 = 136 points available. In practice though nobody has yet scored 17 points in a game, and I don't expect them to.

I'm giving too many points for 0-0, but fortunately there haven't been many.

After the first two QFs
================

Anybody who had Colombia to finish third loses 4 points on the right hand side.
Anybody who had Neymar to finish as top goal scorer loses 4 points on the right hand side.
Anybody who predicted 5 goals for the leading goal scorer loses 2 points on the right hand side.
Anybody who has Brazil and Germany as winners and runners-up in any order loses 5 points on the right hand side.

Number on left of dot is points won so far, number on right of dot is points you might still win; adding the two together gives your highest possible score.

FrankMunro-371 37.26
bossyb 34.22
lockedon 34.18
knocker knowles 32.11
MoscowWolf 30.19
Muz 26.23
OxfordWolf 26.18
toonwolf 24.19
Ironfistedmonk 24.13
muss 24.07

After the second semi-final
====================

Anybody who had Argentina finishing third loses 4 points on the right of the dot.

The number on the left of the dot is points scored, on the right is points still playing for.

FrankMunro-371 37.23 *
bossyb 34.14
lockedon 34.07 *
knocker knowles 32.07
MoscowWolf 30.07
OxfordWolf 26.11
Muz 26.11
toonwolf 24.14
muss 24.07
Ironfistedmonk 24.05

I think only Frank and lockedon can now win. Some others are snookered by their choices matching those of Frank, and some have Aguero as high scorer, which isn't going to happen. Should Frank fail to get any more points lockedon is logically bound to, and this rules out those who can catch Frank. So I believe it's down to those two.

If Brazil finish third, this will clinch it for Frank who will be on 41 with one game still to play as the only way for lockedon to reach 41 is if the highest scorer gets 7 goals (currently James Rodriguez on 6), but Frank has 7 too, so he would also get those points.

So I think if Brazil finish third, Frank wins. Otherwise it's down to who wins the final. Frank wins if Argentina win, and lockedon would win if Germany did, unless Messi scored two or more and Muller failed to score as many (Frank has Messi to be top scorer and he's on 4 at the moment with Muller on 5).

Edit: Schurrle could also finish top scorer, but if Messi got two goals Schurrle would need four to keep Messi from being equal top scorer, so it's unlikely.

After the third place play off
====================

Anybody who had Brazil finishing third loses 4 points on the right of the dot.

The number on the left of the dot is points scored, on the right is points still playing for.

FrankMunro-371 37.19 *
bossyb 34.14
lockedon 34.07 *
knocker knowles 32.07
MoscowWolf 30.07
OxfordWolf 26.11
Muz 26.11
toonwolf 24.14
muss 24.07
Ironfistedmonk 24.05

So Frank missed out on the extra 4 points from Brazil, and it's down to a tense final as the world waits to find out whether lockedon will snatch the muss challenge from Frank at the very last. Argentina first = Frank first. Argentina second = lockedon first unless Messi ends as top scorer (or joint top scorer, as we are not using their tie-break).

After the final
==========

Anybody who had Germany winning gets 8 points (nobody)
Anybody who had Argentina second gets 5 points (muss, Ifm, Muz, Moscow, lockedon)
Nobody had James Rodriguez as high scorer
Anybody who had 6 goals down for the leading scorer gets 2 points (muss, kk, Muz, Moscow, bossyb)

Final standings:

(5) lockedon 39
(7) MoscowWolf 37
(0) FrankMunro-371 37
(2) bossyb 36
(2) knocker knowles 34
(7) Muz 33
(7) muss 31
(5) Ironfistedmonk 29
(0) OxfordWolf 26
(0) toonwolf 24

So congratulations to lockedon, who wins the inaugural muss challenge with an all-time best prediction quotient of 39%. Bad luck to Moscow Wolf, but particularly to FrankMunro-371 who led for most of the competition but was pipped at the post. Thank you to everybody who took part.

Two Runner Up Medals then, better than relegation I guess. :lol:

I beat Knocker though and that was my aim. :wink:
