    Thank you to E.S for all the effort that has gone into running the competition and for Barney for funding it. It was a good experience and added to the World Cup from a personal point of view.

    Well done to Brian for coming top of the pile, not very fond of Mario Gotze at the moment as 6 additional extra time minutes without a goal, leading to penalties could have seen me winning.

    As for the season comp, I recall getting very bored with it previously, I found guessing scores for every match every weekend became a chore more than anything. But maybe that was just me. I'm sure we can come up with something.
    I was the same

    A mixture of forgetting the odd week and maybe not doing great resulted in me losing interest

    yep - that need to commit to every week seems the issue (understandably)

    quite like the idea of picking out say 2-3 games every month that people predict on, or a FA/League cup only one so it reduces the commitment needed to take part

    something simple but challenging skill/knowledge

    views welcome

    Anyway, if you can't see the stats clearly on screen you should be able to download each one and then view at your leisure

    cheers

    we collectively got more match predictions right (53%) than wrong (47%) ... just

    and likewise with qualifying team predictions - 54% right, 46% wrong

    but only 1 in 5 tournament predictions proved accurate. If Argentina had won the World Cup then that stat would have looked a lot better.
