  1. This was doing the rounds on Twitter a couple of weeks ago. Doesn’t take too much detective work to deduce who it is even from the official information out there now.
  2. Better late never, innit. It’s all over and, after recovering slightly from Sunday night’s penalty defeat, the final tables look like this. scottakie takes the title - it looks like a three-way tie but I believe Superbru gives the win to the player with most correct results in the event of a tie. Good effort from @jorvik_latic and @andy_b_100 to make up the deficit and go level on points at the top. @danielprops up the table and takes the wooden spoon. Thanks for playing all. Was a great tournament until Sunday!
  3. Thought Saka, for the first time in the tournament, was really poor last night. Presumably nerves played a big part in that and so I couldn't believe he was the one stepping up to take the fifth penalty. I actually said out loud, "NO! Saka's taking it!" I thought England's first half performance was nigh-on perfect, although Rice should have taken a booking and brought down Chiesa when he was charging down on goal but they got away with that. For what it's worth, I'm not Rice's biggest fan but he was tremendous last night - best I've seen him play by a distance. Second half England dropped deeper and sat off Italy and invited pressure. Southgate's approach was too cautious and the subs came too late. And he kept two in his back pocket for pens but neither paid off - although, I can see why he brought on Rashford as he has scored pressure penalties before. Really surprised more senior players didn't step up in place of Sancho and Saka. The national team is making progress and should get better with the young talent that's there. I hope Southgate sticks at it. The abuse aimed at the lads who missed penalties is shameful but, sadly, not a surprise.
  4. Going into tonight’s final, scottakie still clings to the top spot. There seems to be little hope of @daniel avoiding the wooden spoon. COME ON ENGLAND!
  5. The Japanese continue to wear masks for a period of time after having had a cold. Unlike here (until Covid came along), it is unacceptable to brave it out and turn up to the office coughing and sneezing too. I had a week off with the family last week and was out in the big wide world pretty much for the first time since last March and observed much of the same as you describe, including strutting, beefcake lads wearing masks on their chin, almost willing someone to challenge them.
  6. Here are the tables after the quarter finals. scottakie stays top of the table but, having looked like he might run away with it, he’s been reined in a little going into the semi finals stage.
  7. After the round of 16, scottakie appears to be running away with it. The Jorvik/maddog household leads the chasing pack.
  8. @Chaddyexile84 take the gold cap for the third round of games. RyanC98 takes the wooden spoon. Scottakie retakes top spot with a 3.5 point cushion. Here’s how the tables look after the final group stage fixtures:
  9. Bit late but, at the end of the second round of fixtures, the table looked like this. Me taking the gold cap doesn’t say much for the rest of you. BrockwellSwan scooped the wooden spoon.
  10. Going into the weekend fixtures, the table looks like this.
  11. At the end of the first round of group fixtures, scottakie storms into a sizeable early lead and takes the golden cap. @unsworth bluebags the first wooden spoon.
  12. Just a bit of fun - no money/prizes involved - but I’ve set up an OWTB league at Superbru for the Euro 2020 Predictor game. Follow the link straight to the league sign up or search for OWTB https://www.superbru.com/euros_predictor/pool.php?p=12344492 Or you can download the Superbru app and searching for the pool with code: tookweek
  13. Ah, you deserve your rest by the time the playoffs come around, Pete!

  18. The following predictors will battle it out in this year's playoffs: Championship: @Handsy, @pjkent, @BP1960 and @south east latic League One: @Londonboy, @alien @tGWB and @CoreyECFC League Two: @futchers briefs, @MrPartyPants6 @philwhite and @mackin89 So the playoff fixtures look like this: Championship: @Handsy vs @south east latic (Tranmere v Morecambe) @pjkent vs @BP1960 (Newport Co. v Forest Green Rovers) League One: @Londonboy vs @CoreyECFC (Tranmere v Morecambe) @alien vs @tGWB (Newport Co. v Forest Green Rovers) League Two: @futchers briefs vs @mackin89 (Tranmere v Morecambe) @MrPartyPants6 vs @philwhite (Newport Co. v Forest Green Rovers) You each need to submit predictions for the corresponding fixtures above (both legs). This will be submitted in the old school style by posting your predictions in this thread (not to be submitted or edited after 10 mins before the stated kick-off time). You should include an attendance as part of your prediction as I gather there will be crowds. First scorer predictions will be for the first scorer of the game, not for a particular team as with Latics fixtures. The winning players will then play off in a final, by predicting the outcome of the League Two playoff final, the winner of which will be promoted. Predictions for all playoff fixtures are for the 90 mins, not extra time or penalties. In the event of a draw in the final, the winner will be determined by the closest attendance prediction, then by total points scored in the playoffs, then by previous attendance predictions if still level. I will hide second leg predictions as I see them to ensure the leader from the first leg can't simply replicate their opponent's prediction. If you then want to edit, just submit another prediction in the thread (your last one before the time cut off will count).
  19. I must have completely missed news of your brother, @al_bro - I don't get on here as much as I used to. Really sorry to hear that.

  21. OWTB Prediction League Cup Final Result: @jbroyton 3-3 @Nohairdontcare Replay v Forest Green.
  22. I'd love it to be true and see JP Morgan pursuing the twelve clubs for €3.6 billion.
  23. That can't be true. The clubs and their legal teams would have known there was a risk it wouldn't come off and would never have signed up to that. Didn't they each stand to receive a payment of around £300m if it went ahead? Think the two things are probably being confused.
