So,

Goals scored in the game. And the time of the first goal as a tie breaker.(polite not to have the same minute as someone else with the same score)

Winner takes all.

You have to pay in £100 virtual pounds. YOu could stand to win potentially millions of non existent beer tokens!!!!!!!!

I will bump every now & again, and we'll see who wins.

Discussion of the day already, with only 44 posts... is this a MN record?

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 12-Jun-10 15:02:59

Hello.

It's not the number of posts that make threads DoD-able, insertexpletive, it's the quality of posts/brilliance of subject matter...

And, erm, we're going to tweak the title of this thread just a little to save catinthehat2's blushes - obviously, she meant to say England v USA, not UK v USA <hoists kilt>

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 15:04:08

Maybe MN have got an enormous spread bet on somewhere and are trying to pass messages to the rest of their <ahem> syndicate without getting caught out by the authorities.

But I couldn't possibly speculate about the reason.

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 15:08:48

Yes, exactly as I thought. Helen's got a Yankee Each Way accumulator which could compromise Mumsnet Limited as a going concern.

And that kilt thing, that was a sign to the rest of her syndicate.

Boy, she's going to be in such a lot of trouble on Monday.

DS1 also wants a go.

He says 8-1 to England, first goal at 10 mins.

He has raided his virtual piggy bank for the £100 (that'll be all teh money that I haven't got round to putting in his virtual savings account then!)

Although with that score prediction I am beginning to doubt his Welsh credentials! grin

YEAH BABY!!!!!

helyg Sat 12-Jun-10 20:27:38

I thought in the OP the time of the first goal was a tie breaker? ie if two people said the final score was 2-2 and that was what it was the person closest to the first goal time wins?

Indaba Sat 12-Jun-10 20:29:03

Indaba wonders why she puts herself through the agony of watching England, year, after year, after year.

magicOC Sat 12-Jun-10 20:33:44

No helyg

Only tie-breaker if two people get correct score then it would be down to the minute.

KerryMumbles Sat 12-Jun-10 20:35:40

so why are people being bumped off for having time of first goal wrong?

helyg Sat 12-Jun-10 20:35:54

Which is what I said magic.

magicOC Sat 12-Jun-10 20:41:28

Sorry helyg, mis-read your post.

Your right there are some who's names have been dropped, but, in fairness it wasn't the OP who up-dated the last list.

She's probably too engrossed in the footie and will set the record straight when it's all over.

helyg Sat 12-Jun-10 20:43:29

I can see why I have been bumped off, as if the final score is 1-1 then someone else who predicted that score was closer to the first goal time than I was.

Does that explain all those who have been bumped off though?

<awaits cat's return for definitive list>

magicOC Sat 12-Jun-10 20:50:52

Have gone thru them and it does indeed look as tho they are all present and correct with regards to nearest to the time of the 1st goal.

How sad are we wink
