    Reminders also to ripper, chalky & Pothas.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Final update

    Housekeeping bit: No tips for the German win from chalky, Pothas or ripper, but as everyone else tipped Jerry the round's lowest is a 1, which they all pick up.

    Germany by one wasn't a popular prediction, but dav & tozz pick up 2s (SKD's extra being absolutely crucial, but more of that later) and Straw Man gets all 3 for the 3-2 win.

    Spain winning 1-0 was quite a popular shout,and along with dav and tozz, Noble One, Matteh, Ausage, Meridio, fred & Somers pick up big 10s for calling it.

    Round

    SKD 12
    altoz 12
    Ausage 11
    Noble One 11
    Matteh 11
    Meridio 11
    Fred 11
    Somers 11
    SS 8
    Clapo 8
    Vimes 8
    Adam 8
    Faaip 6
    Days of Grace 6
    Pothas 6
    chalky 6
    Straw Man -2
    ripper -4
    marc -4
    Steulen -4
    Marcuss -4
    bi -4
    GIMH -4
    fatt -4
    Brumby -4
    pasag -4


    Final round bonuses of .02 to tozz & dav. &, in a more thrilling finish than the actual tournament got, SKD's 12 point haul draws him level on 58 with Pothas, but the former's extra bonuses give him the title by the narrowest of margins. Couldn't have been closer, Brian! Fair play to both and kudos to Pothas for not just replicating dav's prediction to ensure he won.

    Matteh rounds out the medals in 3rd and Somers's 11 on the last day means he pips Faaip for 4th.

    Thanks to all who took part and especially those who stuck with it to the bitter end.

    Overall

    1) SKD 58.08
    2) Pothas 58.03
    3) Matteh 55.01
    4) Somers 48.02
    5) Faaip 44.01
    6) Vimes 43.03
    7) Adam 41.02
    8) Meridio 40.03
    9) Noble One 38.03
    10) Clapo 37.01
    11) Days of Grace 33.01
    12) Brumby 29

    Disappointing finish cost me a few places but pretty happy with seventh considering I was last at one point. Cheers for running it Brumby.
