Netherlands VS Italy

Good game. :aharr:

Though this is a bit ridiculous though:



:lol:

Anyway there was a lot of commotion of one of the goals being not correct or something. I'm a football noob so I don't know much about it :D

DTUCH CHOCOLATE COVERED PLAYBOYS VS THE FRENCH RESISTANCE

Any goal at the back of Italy's net is alright in my books.

Should we start like a betting competition for the results?

Romania 1 - Italy 1
France 1 - Dutch 3

Let's give 5 points if you get everything right, 3 points for the right outcome and 1 point for getting the scoresheet right for either team. - And you don't combine any of that.

So let's say Romania wins Italy 2-1 then I would get 1 point and for the Dutch beating France 3-1 as I have foreseen I would get 5 points. OK?

Can't say I've ever been interested in soccer, but since Dtuchland is going to win this European Championship (Even the English think so) I might as well watch. :)



Bet placement
Dtuchland - France: 2-2
Romania - Italy: 0-0

Edit: Lovejoy that score system is somewhat hard on draws: "3 points for the right outcome". It is much more likely that there is no draw in a match than that there is one. It would be no more than fair to increase the points given for a correctly predicted draw to 3*(number of non-draws/2 : number of draws) I'd say. Alternatively I could alter my predictions in order to score most points but that is a bit lame.

Just keep it fun. I don't think it's that unfair, it's just betting.

Actually it's just genius; for dtuch - france ending 2-2 you would get 5 points. 1-1 earns you three points and 2-1 would still give you 1 point. Be happy.

Draws are always the least likely but you gotta put a few in if you wanna win cause they do happen. Don't start arguing now or else. It's the system. A non democratic one.

And you'll ruin the topic. It's all on you dark horse.

The dutch defense did seem a bit weak eventhough them sleazebag Italians didn't score any and then again, France attack was equally as poor against Romania with pretty much only Ribery capeable of causing some damage, still scoring zero. The french are so going down if they haven't got some new blood.

Italy is the favorite for the match against Romania which still shouldn't be under estimated, it might just end up to be a very colourful match. Ok... I'll never bet on Italy no matter how black their team might seem to be.

Dtuchland - France: 1-2
Romania - Italy: 0-1

So, Romania and Italy played a 1-1 draw which means maximum 5 points and big congratulations to me, 1 point to Rincewind(to twist the knife, your original bet would had gained you 3 points omg) and zero to round loser Sandman.

Now, in about half an hour the dtuch goal frenzy begins. The french got Henry now though :F
Anyway, quoting all the poorly employed whores: MORE PEOPLE IN PLEASE.

If only there were knights and princesses and long swords and dragons and castles and oh boy he would be decapitated!
Now he's just really really embarassed. Just 20 years back and he might had got stabbed but not today.

I hope his bettings are genuine this time around :F

Seems like nobody but Sandman has hopes for the Greeks. They might just do one goal but they won't beat them Russkis. CCCP STANDS FOR WORLD DOMINATION.

Spain - Sweden came out 2-1 which means:

5 points to Sandman.
3 points to ME, Htbaa and gutless Rincewind.
The game wasn't as exciting as expected.

I'll update the total scores after the Russian Federation has dominated the Women of Greek.

Classic Russia game; they got talent, if only they were less selfish and possibly a bit more accurate.

So, 1-0 to Russia means:

3 points to ME and traitor Rincewind.
1 point to Htbaa and Sandman.
Code:
ME        5+3+3+3 = 14
Sandokan  0+3+5+1 = 9
Htbaa       3+3+1 = 7
Rincewind 1+0+3+3 = -7

Tomorrow:
Switzerland 1 - Portugal 3
Turk 1 - Czech 1


Portugal is just too obviously going to win, right? Well the Swizz change is if they can keep the game at 0-0 for quite near the end of the match the Portuguese might get nervous. On the other hand this match is meaningless since Portugal has already won Group A and Switzerland is out so we might see some quite entertaining or desperate trying, and propably Portugal's starting line-up will have a lot of new faces.

The Czech team has been really quiet this tournament and so have the Turks, it's really hard to say which will continue. As a matter of fact if it's a draw then there's going to be a penalty shootout to decide which will continue.

Quoting (. )( .):
3 points to ME and traitor Rincewind.
1 point to Htbaa and Sandman.
Code:
ME        5+3+3+3 = 14
Sandokan  0+3+5+1 = 9
Htbaa       3+3+1 = 7
Rincewind 1+0+3+3 = -7

Don't push your luck now. Seriously though - nationalism or guts have no place in predicting things.

Bet placement
Switzerland 1 - Portugal 2
Turk 2 - Czech 1
