    Indeed, NUFAN becomes our 16th different Slam winner

    NUFAN 355
    Somerset 350
    Dydl 333
    SBI 325
    Brumby 324
    Hĺkon 309
    Clapo 304
    Jono 298
    Mat 297
    Marc 292
    Wright 262
    Simon 250
    altoz 246

    None of the top three have made it to the hall of fame before, so good work.

    Don't think I would have caught Rob even with the missed day, and excellent tipping towards the end. And day seven.

    So...feedback? Thought this worked better than many comps we've had, and the AO is (along with US Open) the worst for me to run.

    Congrats NUFAN

    Thanks for running it Mr Mork (y)

    Feedback....despite most people not being a huge fan of it, reckon we should throw the full womens draw into the mix (as opposed to just the 4th round onwards) for next time.

    Would sap my life-force to correct 64 matches on a Tuesday night. Not to mention tip them.

    Yeh no need for the womens, still a bit undecided on the scoring but happy to go with whatever the person running it wants.

    Thanks for running the competition Vimes. Happy with second though after leading or sharing the lead for much of the tournament its nice to know I still have the ability to throw away winning positions.

    Pretty stoked to have finally made it on the hall of fame. Cheers for running this again Vimes.

    As for feedback, I love the fact that we have to email our picks for the finals, I think we should probably email before the semi's too.

    Congrats to NUFAN and kudos to Samuel for the leg work too.

    Scoring system seems to work ok, I always thought 64 points (IIRC) for the finals was OTT.

    Definitely don't want the women included any earlier either; not overly fussed about having them in it at all tbh.

    "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."
