JOKERS HAVE TO BE PLAYED ON THE FINAL (so not noted below)

Our four pickers without a 0.5pt penalty have all gone for the favourites (zzzzzzz) so, if they are right it will be decided on the time of the first goal in the final.
Viva and bluenosey have both gambled on Mali and have the two finalists covered between them so if Mali win then so will one of them. With the final being for double points then Viva has a second great chance with being the only Burkina Faso pick.....

Ashers
Ghana 18
Nigeria 18 (just wrote 18 once but will count for both games)
moonlightdribbler
Ghana 60
Nigeria 40
Rookster
Ghana 42
Nigeria 29
Surprised
Ghana 17
Nigeria 42

Starting with penalty (-0.5 points)
Viva
Mali 14
Burkina Faso 31
bluenosey
Mali 37
Nigeria 27

Re. the goal time in the final, i was hoping everyone else would go for a fairly early goal, and by plumping for 40' i'd edge any goal scored late in the 1st half, and have the 2nd half all to myself..........thwarted by Surprised's 42'. :evil:

Will probably only be the tie-breaker for second or third as Mali are winning...

They would have been my 2nd choice.

Good luck Viva :)

I suppose we both had to gamble with the 1/2 point deficit but I had a hunch Ghana wouldn't care too much about third, whereas Mail would.

A big part of me wants Burkina Faso to win but in the context of this comp, it's go Super Eagles :D

Congratulations bluenosey, and thanks murf for running this again. Would've liked to have gone further in defence of my crown but it was not to be.

Hoping to open for business on Thursday - everything is quite fast moving with new picks needed every 2 days so I am deliberately not starting early (deadline / first kick off Saturday afternoon).

Rules will be as this comp from 2 years ago
