I went from 11th (first day) to 2nd place so far! 8-0

Sky's the limit 8-)

Yep. And in the knockout stages all points are doubled, so anything can happen :-)

If anyone is interested in seeing their progress (or lack thereof) I have compiled all the table updates into an album and will keep updating it.

Also, don't forget, fixtures for the Last 16 are being decided now. We already have two fixtures in place (Swiss v Poland and Italy v Spain) so feel free to get those predictions in as early as you like.

(7) Once you have submitted a prediction for a game, it cannot be changed (unless you can convince me there is an extremely good reason for doing so).                           

Jun-21   20:00   Croatia   0   vs   -2   Spain

@Baron. Are Spain really going to score -2 goals against Croatia? (laugh)

I understand that Spain has a very talented side: if anyone can do it, they can! :=

Er.... Since there was a rule against changing predictions, I assumed my Croatia over Spain prediction stood.... :=  Also, judging by the above correspondence, I assumed you were cool with that.  Can I get a definitive ruling?

I thought that it was a typo, but if you were in fact predicting that Spain would score less than Croatia, then You can have the point (not sure where I got the 1 for Croatia from though).

Well, I'm not going to lie to you, it was a type-o.  But I thought I couldn't change it once submitted, so in my mind I was now backing Croatia. (roll)

A typo is a good enough reason to change, and it turns out the spreadsheet formula doesn't recognise minus points anyway. You won't get a point for that but the good news is I forgot to give you your two extra wildcard points, so that is now up to date ;-)

The group stages are over. After 36 games Cassie is leading the table by a tasty margin. Kumpel is in second and (despite what the table says) Baron is in third as he has correctly guessed more results than CaptainD.


From now on, all points are worth double. Here is a full list of fixtures for the Last 16 matches (please correct me if I made any mistakes, I'm still half asleep.

Jun-25   14:00   Switzerland   -   vs   -   Poland
Jun-25   17:00   Wales   -   vs   -   N Ireland
Jun-25   20:00   Croatia   -   vs   -   Portugal
Jun-26   14:00   France   -   vs   -   Rep Ireland
Jun-26   17:00   Germany   -   vs   -   Slovakia
Jun-26   20:00   Hungary   -   vs   -   Belgium
Jun-27   17:00   Italy   -   vs   -   Spain
Jun-27   20:00   England   -   vs   -   Iceland

Get predicting!

So the prediction of a draw now is equal to penalty? Or do we have to predict the penalty score? (wtf)

Re: AGS Euro 2016 Prediction League

(9) Only results after normal time count (90 mins + time added on).  Goals scored during extra time or penalties will not be included. So, if you predicted a 1-1 draw and the game goes on to extra tme and finishes 2-1, you will still win the points provided the score at the regular full-time whistle was 1-1.

Jun-25   14:00   Switzerland   0   vs   2   Poland    Have a feeling Poland will be too strong for the Swiss
Jun-25   17:00   Wales   1   vs   0   N Ireland       Two incredibly gutsy sides, but I think Bale will make the difference between them
Jun-25   20:00   Croatia   3   vs   2   Portugal      I can see this being a bit like the Hungary vs Portugal game, but thing Croatia will edge it   
Jun-26   14:00   France   2   vs   1   Rep Ireland    France should edge this, even though they've not been at their best - yet
Jun-26   17:00   Germany   2   vs   0   Slovakia      Can't see past a Germany win here
Jun-26   20:00   Hungary   1   vs   2   Belgium       This one's fascinating.  Belgium should win though.
Jun-27   17:00   Italy   1   vs   0   Spain           Intriguing tie.  Think Italy will just nick it.
Jun-27   20:00   England   1   vs   1   Iceland       Could well end in a tie.  England will dominate possession but have been a bit toothless up front and susceptible to the counter-attack.
