    Isn't that what makes it enjoyable though

    Have to admit my attempts are proving fairly pathetic.

    Yes, you're right trainman, if you don't get the 'win team 1 - draw- win team 2' result right then you get no points. If you do get it right you get 1pt. Then get 0.5pt if you also got the goal difference right and 0.25pt for each team where you got the correct number of goals. So if you get the score spot on you should get 2pts.

    Then there's the bonus points allocated between our pool, but don't ask me how to work that one out

    I think that the person nearest to the correct result gets a bonus point, and if there are more than one the point is split 0.5, 0.33, 0.25.. Could be wrong though!

    Well something else I have to be grateful to Soup for. There is someone on here worse than me at predicting International Football results.

    I'd be doing really well if the matches only lasted 80 minutes - Once again a late goal has made my maximum points turn into a big fat zero!

    Well done to New Zealand for their first ever World Cup point - Basts!

    Nice result for trainman though. Have to admit I did enjoy seeing New Zealand score the late goal, I thought they had done enough.

    Well done N Z. But is this, so far, the dullest World Cup ever. Due to work commitments, or lack of them, i have watched every game but apart from the Germany match and perhaps the first game there is nowt to shout about. It seem that teams are more afraid of losing rather than the anticipation of winning. All to the background of those flippin vuvuzala,s.

    I've seen hem all for the same reason and I have to agree that the vast majority of games are rubbish. I enjoyed the Germany game and The Argie game was good along with the performance of a lifetime from the North Koreans tonight. Hopefully the nerves will go and we'll have some great second round group games.

    Also, I didn't think that I could dislike Ronaldo(h) any more than I do, but he always manages to amaze me how much of a cheat he is.

    The dullest World Cup ever is still better than the most exciting other sporting event ever. It's the World Cup. It's great.

    Anyway, nothing can be worse than the opening batch of games from 1990, which were a total snore-fest so far as I can remember. And in those days the pass-back to the 'keeper was allowed too. Imagine if that was still allowed now...

    Just topped up a few predictions (with the precious 'insight' that the first round of matches has offered, hahaha) & notice that Gann & EG might want to get their scores in for tonight's game.
    Gill has tomorrow evening's match down as the game of the tournament so far - Mexico 4: France 3, sounds like a cracker!
