EUROS 2012 Pick The Score Competition Sign Up

Postby poohcarrot » Fri May 11, 2012 1:22 pm

Two years ago we had a World Cup "Pick the score" competition which Sjoerd (of all people :roll: ) won.

Who's interested in playing in the Euros? :dance:

If there are at least 6 competitors, then I'll run one.

I'll post the games, you guess what the score is going to be.
You don't have to know anything about footy to enter - just look at Sjoerd. :o

You get 3 points for a correct score.
You get 1 point for a correct result but wrong score.

If Man C win the Premier league on Sunday, I'm going to buy two (L size) of the Man U "Champions 2012" T-shirts :lol: :lol: (See Pooh Pit for more details). One's for me because I think they're going to be the "fashion statement" of this summer, the other's for whoever wins the competition.
If by any unbelievable turn of events Man U actually manage to win, I'll change the prize to some AKB48 nonsense. 8-)

So if you're interested, sign up. :dance:

I have absolutely no good feelings about any England games. :?

So England will probably win because usually I think they will and they never do. :dance:

Carrol and Rooney! What a combination!! :?

I'm always up for one of your comps. :handgestures-thumbupleft: :D

England are bound to win because, for the first time, I haven't booked any time off to watch the matches. :lol:

Rooney's only banned for two games and if they don't bring Carrol, which forwards are they going to take? :?

Ones who can score , Crouch for example , Sturridge, Wellbeck and Grant Holt cos if you can score for a team as crap as Norwich your worth a look :D

Hang about! You've just contradicted yourself there. If they bring Holt coz he can score for a crap team, why bring Sturridge and Wellbeck who can't score for "good" teams? :?

And Carrol can head the ball better than Crouch. :dance:
Is Heskey still playing? :lol:

Heskey is a Donkey and Wellbeck was scoring for fun pre injury.Sturridge scores when he plays (sadly Chelsea don't let him much and Crouch is the Third highest scoring English striker in the league despite playing for a crazy defensive team (Rooney and Sturridge are the two ahead of him) :D

Just realised I was wrong. Holt is actually the second highest scoring English Stiker ahead of Sturridge and Crouch. :dance:

He rpobably will pick Carroll who has to be fair worked harder than the rest of the Liverpool team in the last few months but Hodgson was a suprise and he might throw in a few more suprises
