What is round 1 - the whole group stage, or only the first round of group games... have I just answered my own question?

I think it's the group stage in its entirety.

Sorry, yeah, my use of the phrase 'first round' means the whole of the group stages. You can use your wildcard in any group stage game :)

@CaptainD Superbly placed wildcard there, my friend. That puts you in first place, with a nice 7-point cushion already. But it's still early days, so don't get comfortable :)

Yesterday was good to me, too. 2/3 correct scores. Horray.

Come on Divock!  Equalise and get me more points! :-D

[EDIT] - on second thoughts if you save performances like that for your national side and perform well for LFC, that would be smashing.

Last call for new entrants. Anyone who's been wondering whether or not to join in, you have until the Russia-Slovakia game kicks off on the 15th. The league is well underway, but it's not too late and anything can happen.

Cassie and Tzachs (and me), don't forget to add a few more predictions soon or you might risk some deductions :-)

And reminder to those who still haven't used their wildcard, don't forget. CaptainD is living proof that it pays to use it :-)

and I thought I was going early to bed again. (roll)

How can I be doing so badly when I have so much in common with managerial guru Jogi Low!



Maybe I'm not doing it enough...

Rats, why do they never ever listen to me?? 8-0
I keep telling them "shooting almost in is NOT a score! It's the ball INSIDE the goal that counts!" damn them for not listening! (roll)

And I missed both goals!!! Because the commentator was just randomly commenting and not engaged at all! So I was at the computer expecting to hear a "GOAL"... but it was more like a "goal" I'm guessing, cause I never heard them. :~(
To make matters worse, I had set the tTV on a timer and it turned it self on when the game started... great, but I failed to realized it would shut it self off again... right in the last few seconds of the game, when Ronaldo was about to shot the very last shot (yes, after the hand)... and bum! Black screen... and I was WTF!? (wtf) I hurry to turned it on again, but by the time it did, it was over, the game score was no longer on, Ronaldo was walking with his stupid grin and the Icelanders were celebrating like they just had won the game... and me was "WTF happen? Did it end 1-1 or did he score? Or did THEY score?" (roll)

Do you have to use wild cards in the groups or can you wait until the later stages?

You don't HAVE to... but you CAN... and if you don't, then you miss that wild card. You'll get another wild card for the stages... or at least that is my understanding

Nah... I better remember to give some predictions soon. (nod)

Group stage only, this time. The knockout stages are already doubled and the final is tripled. Last year we did try wildcards in the knockout stages instead but it didn't really end up adding anything, so I thought this time they could be used to spice up the group stages a bit.

It's funny that most of you expect a large victory of France over Albania tonight.
Let's refresh your memory :
14th November 2014, France-Albania : 1-1
13th June 2015, Albania-France : 1-0

Well all my other predictions for today's matches have been woefully wrong, so...

I should point out (and I will update this in the rules) that in the event of a tie-break situation where two teams have the same number of POINTS, the player with the highest number of correct SCORES will win. If they are still level, it will go to the player with the highest number of correct RESULTS. If it is STILL level, the person with the fewest deductions will win. And if it is still level after all that, there will be a fight to the death.

I'm having trouble getting the table to automatically display the above-mentioned rule (strangely. I'm sure it was easy last time). For example, Sinitrena and Sinsin should actually be swapped because Sinsin has guessed more correct scores, but it's not really worth the hassle unless it becomes an issue at the top of the table near the end of the tournament.
