  1. It would appear that I am not going to be able to submit my predictions until after the first game, as it wanted me to log in and I only had 2 attempts before it told me I had to wait 3 days (damned lousy memory!).
    Any suggestions, Peter?

  2. All the points should be up from the first game.

    I’ll try and leave predictions up for a few days before removing them. You can check if I’ve scored up a game because on your own predictions it will show the score and your marks for that game.

    Congratulations to those who got the score spot on in that first game. Bonus point for those who didn’t but got at least one of the team’s goals right.

  3. Can you confirm the scoring for correctly predicting a draw but with incorrect score? The scoring rubric and logic suggests 6 points but only 4 points seem to be being awarded!

  4. For the knock-out stage you need to predict the score at the end of the game BEFORE PENALTIES (if they happen). This means that you should still predict a draw if you think the game will end in penalties.
