gosh I am soo hungover. Sorry for all the posts... went out for 1 beer at midday yesterday and i got home at 1.30 this morning. Did a massive pub crawl through 12 pubs, with a thai meal thrown in somewhere. Was playing darts at one point and we had to put our hand on dartboard while others threw the darts. A clear sign we were all rather drunk.....

This weeks predictions... with a bonus game which will provide double points - i.e. get exact result right, you get 6 points instead of 3 and 2 instead of 1 etc.

And, as there are no premier league games this week, we are guessing on internationals (will make it a little more difficult).

The bonus game is Zambia -v- Congo. Now that will be interesting!!!

Belgium v Bosnia-Herz'vina
Czech Rep v Finland
England v N Ireland
France v Switzerland
Israel v Rep of Ireland
Italy v Scotland
Poland v Azerbaijan
Romania v Holland
Turkey v Albania
Wales v Austria
Zambia v Congo

One slight error - Yertle I did you a diservice and did not add one point to your total.

Scores should read as follows:

Pathetico Bling Bling FC 13
Aardvark Devils 11
Yertle FC 8
Hell's Satans 7
Quack, Quack, Bang, Bang 6
Capers FC 4

once the football season is over, we can pick another sport or something to predict on. Will include FA Cup games etc.

I just realised its near impossible for you to have an idea on how good/bad some of these European countries are at soccer. I imagine its a little harder for you.

Tell you what, if you send 10/11 fixtures from local Canadian league (and you can keep track of results), then we can use them as a weeks prediction. Seems fair?

Sorry about the S at end of Capers.. clearly I had food on mind...

But *cough* - Rooney / Heinze this season, both fantastic buys. And with Ronaldo developing, and Giggsy just about to sign a 3 yr deal, we'll be back next season. As will Sir Alex. Hopefully to reclaim the title. Tho the 1 thing we DO lack, is a decent keeper.
If only Chelsea would let us have Cudicini!!! Or Italy's own Buffon.....


yeah, you definitely need a keeper, but buffon is tough to have, i think he'll never leave juventus! giggs is about to sign for other 3 years? wow, but who knows if he will last on his standards until 2008? i hope for him! i think you've got some players who have done their times, keano, neville,silvestre for example, even van nistelrooy may have problems because of his injuries. but on the other hands you have 2 young wonderful players like rooney and ronaldo who can really become champions. maybe you'll need a couple of years and the purchase of some other players to come back again, chelsea seems to have taken the road which man utd has covered for all the past years. it seems difficult that they won't begin a winning cycle for the next 2-3 years........but one is sure........they won't win the champions league this season!
