    Euro 2008 Tipping Comp

    Ok, by popular (well, two people ) demand I'm going to shamelessly rehash the Union World Cup 2007 format for the round ball code this summer.

    Scoring

    Outcome: 3 points (e.g. Team A to win, Team B to win or draw)

    Score: Spot-on - 3 points (e.g. Team A 3 Team B 1); Correct margin - 1 point (e.g. you tip Team A to win 2-1 & they win 1-0 or you tip a score draw & it's 0-0)

    First goalscorer: Correct goalscorer named - 3points; Predicted first goalscorer scores goal other than first - 1 point.

    Devastatingly straightforward, I'm sure you'll agree. So your tips should look something like:

    Germania 2 Italialand 1
    First goalscorer: Hugh Jarse


    All welcome, more the merrier, tell your friends, etc...

    Fixtures for week one:

    Saturday, 7 June
    Switzerland v Czech Republic
    Portugal v Turkey

    Sunday, 8 June
    Austria v Croatia
    Germany v Poland

    Monday, 9 June
    Romania v France
    Netherlands v Italy

    Tuesday, 10 June
    Spain v Russia
    Greece v Sweden

    Wednesday, 11 June
    Czech Republic v Portugal
    Switzerland v Turkey

    Thursday, 12 June
    Croatia v Germany
    Austria v Poland

    Friday, 13 June
    Italy v Romania
    Netherlands v France


    All tips made before KO accepted &, if you change your tip, please could you quote your original post in a new one rather than edit as it's easy to miss them.

    Ah Hugh Jarse. There is a sea of endless possibilities when it comes to stupid names, you had to pick that one

    Sounds good anyway. At what point will the format change? I seem to remember it did at the semi-final stage of the RWC.

    Quarter-finals seems to make sense. Although I am kinda winging it, so who knows...?

    What? I thought international football was just a meaningless, non-cash-spinning competition?

    It is better than nothing when there is no other football on. I don't particularly care about who wins, however, and I wouldn't care much if England were in it either. I just look out for United players tbh.

    I'm in.

    One question though..

    If you tip the scoreline to be 0 - 0. And tip no goal scorers, do you get max points, if correct?

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    Here goes..
    Just decided to do the first half of the first week fixtures to see how all the teams perform. Will obviously change some first goal scorers if I hear some of these players aren't likely to play.

    Switzerland 0 Czech Republic 1
    First goal scorer: Jan Koller

    Portugal 2 Turkey 0
    First goal scorer: Christiano Ronaldo

    Austria 0 Croatia 1
    First goal scorer: Ivan Klasnic

    Germany 2 Poland 0
    First goal scorer: Lukas Podolski

    Romania 0 France 3
    First goal scorer: Frank RIbery

    Netherlands 1 Italy 1
    First goal scorer: Arjen Robben

    Spain 2 Russia 1
    First goal scorer: David Villa

    Greece 1 Sweden 1
    First goal scorer: Zlaten Ibrahimovic

    Yep. "No goalscorer" is accepted as first goalscorer if (& only if) you tip a 0-0.
