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.

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

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

magicOC Sat 12-Jun-10 20:51:57

And that's my 2nd yellow car card grin

SomeGuy Sat 12-Jun-10 21:23:44

and indeed victory!

magicOC Sat 12-Jun-10 21:24:43

3BreastsInMyShirt Sat 12-Jun-10 21:25:26

MagicOC won then.

<<not bitter at all>>

magicOC Sat 12-Jun-10 21:27:06

So when should I expect the cheque? wink

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 21:27:42

What a complete pile of pants. That "game" is why I don't bother with football.

3BreastsInMyShirt Sat 12-Jun-10 21:28:03

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 21:28:10

OK 2 contenders;

magicOC England 1 USA 1
helyg England 1 USA 1

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 21:28:40

Goal at 4mins, so, yes...

magicOC Sat 12-Jun-10 21:28:41

1st thing on my shopping list is a tube of glue for the England goalie grin

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 21:29:08

Hely Senior runner up

catinthehat2 Sat 12-Jun-10 21:32:23

grin I mean

And you get

533 Dirhams
$100 Eroticon
Rand 1100
jar of pickled eggs
1/2 bar of chocolate (no brand name)
stale easter egg
100 Egyptian pounds
Cadbury’s Wispa

Don't spend it all at once, and whatever you do don't eat the pickled eggs because they will 'lower the tone' later on


magicOC Sat 12-Jun-10 21:32:35




magicOC Sat 12-Jun-10 21:36:08

Well guys, I think it's time we all went off to the "vitual" pub and got pissed on the winnings.

Who's up for it?

Whoever volunteered the pickled eggs shouyld be made to swallow them whole [boak]

helyg Sat 12-Jun-10 21:44:33

Well at least I got the score right!

<almost but not quite smug emoticon>

enjoy virtually spending your winnings magic! grin
