I've just looked at last night's results on the prediction league, and was surprised I'd got any points in the England game. In other competitions, the result would have been a draw, irrespective of extra time or penalties.
Championship Plymouth Argyle 1 - 0 Hull City :dance: :dance: :dance: :dance:

Points 51; Position 21

This should clarify it. :cheers:

I guess everyone and everything needs to officially change the spelling.

...."In 2021, however, via the UN, Turkey changed its spelling to Türkiye."

I'm not going to dig out my computer's Character Map or type alt 0251 (which only works on the number pad) every time for the umlaut just to please the UN....

Caller finds himself in the drivers seat after a perfect pick, and #2 and 3 positions with an incorrect pick last night.

Any of the top 3 can still win it though. :cheers:

Congrats on the win JJB and thanks for setting things up PeteC - a bit of fun again! :thumb:

I guess the next major (international) footy tournament must be the World Cup in 2 years then...?

As a closing note, we need to think about if we want to play the woman's Euro 2025 to be held in Switzerland between 2 and 27 July 2025. I'm somewhat sure Superbru will offer it. The England girls just qualified tonight. Think about it and we'll continue the discussion next Spring. :cheers:
