Cheers Red.... This is something simular to what I have run at other boards.

Watch out for Dicanio at this.... He is what we call here in London the "Dogs Boll****" at this kind of thing!

We can all make changes up to the starting date of 7th June.... on that day I will lock the thread..... and we will watch the results pan out.

Change away Red and anyone else who is having 2nd thoughts on their selections.... I am sure i will change one or two before the 7th

Huzup 40
Trickster 27
abcdef 25
Choc 23
Red 18
Dicanio 17
Tick 15



Just thought id add a little report for the swindle with the group games out the way.

Huzup has blitzed the pack with a tremendous score of 40 points mainly down to picking Turkey for the cards points and Russia to get through group D.

Those 24 point has him streaming along in front followed by Trickster and abcdef who also collected top points in the cards question with Turkey.

Special mention for Choc as he too pulled Russia from the high scoring Red section to get through.

At the bottom of the table and again suffering for picking too many outsiders is yours truly lol

While I need a miracle... most of you others are still in with a outside chance of catching Huzup who is proving to be the king of the Euros so far!

Well he just managed to hold onto his lead and is now Champion Euro swindle champion for 2008!

Well done Huzup!

Your points scoring in the group stage was just enough to hold off abcdef n Choc who scored well in the "four for the cup"

The rest of us failed to make up the points differance, although Red & Dicanio scored heavy in the four for the cup too.

As ever in these competitions I run..... I Came last lol

Huzup 68
abcdef 66
Choc 64
Trickster 60
Red 59
Dicanio 58
Tick 43
