Tipping Comp
UEFA
Champions League
2013-14


The ten matches in the final qualifying round (aka the play-off round) will be completed on Wednesday night 28th August. The 10 winners will join the 22 teams who were exempt until the group phase. The draw for the group phase will take place the day after on Thursday 29th August. If you've got a few hours to kill and/or have an insomnia attack and can't hit the sack, you can read the complete details of the qualifying & exemption procedures here : Regulations of the UEFA Champions League 2013-14. Most of the 32 teams in this year's comp are familiar names, but there maybe a few qualifiers whose names will be alien to most of us (see next post).

The group stage commences on Tuesday 17th September (the first round of the tipping comp), and 19 rounds later the UEFA CL Final will be played on Saturday 24th May 2014 in Lisbon, Portugal at Estadio da Luz (aka Stadium of Light) - the home ground of Benfica. There's a two month mid-winter break, for all of us to grab some R&R, between the last round of the group phase on Wednesday 11th December and the start of the KO Round on Tuesday 18th February 2014.

Rules: they're the same as last year, and the year before. The rules for this comp are simple:
    points
    default
    full-time

    upsets
    perfect picks
    other bonus pts


    dead-heats
    one point for each correct pick.
    if you forget to pick, the away teams are all yours (ineligible for bonus pts).
    picks are H-x-A at full-time; extra time or penalty shootouts are ignored.
    if you pick a game solo (or one of two), you score a bonus point.
    8/8 scores a bonus point. You also receive a knighthood from Her Majesty.
    no one picks a win, whoever picks a draw.
    no one picks a draw, whoever picks the upset win.
    if you pick all home teams (or all bar one), you're ineligible for bonus pts.
    weekly wins vs. wooden spoon countback determine podium finishes;
    if they're identical, bonus pts will be used.
Deadline: is always kick-off in the first game of the round. Please don't wait until the death, as there are 4 time zones in Europe, and there's a good chance you'll get it wrong! If you post your tips 4 hours before the scheduled kick-off time for games in the UK, you should be safe. If you lodge your picks late you score default for that round.
    .Previous winners & medallists:
     
    2003-04 : doomed gtho4 manvinder01\fringe
    2004-05 : gtho4 Sypher ElfTwinkle
    2005-06 : doomed Sypher ElfTwinkle
    2006-07 : ElfTwinkle srini701 Howie72
    2007-08 : doomed Sypher Howie72
    2008-09 : ozzz2002 Howie72 LeoDaVinci
    2009-10 : KrivoyRog Sypher LeoDaVinci
    2010-11 : PaulE N-Bomb paper_aero
    2011-12 : Dizart dg_dave illiniman14
    2012-13 : gtho4 paper-aero Howie72
    .
No one has successfully defended their UEFA title .. gtho4 won it last year by from paper_aero and Howie72 who dead-heated for 2nd (paper_aero collected silver on a countback). Dizart was 4th a mere point in arrears and N-Bomb was 5th, a further point in arrears. Two players finished last year's comp without a wooden spoon .. their spoon-less streaks will continue into this year's tipping comp:
    32 weeks : paper-aero (his last spoon was in Round 6 of the 2011-12 comp).
    28 weeks : N-Bomb (last spoon was in Round 10 of 2011-12).
Who's up for the 11th edition of the UEFA Champions League tipping comp?

This year's comp has 16 runners, two less than last year .. doomed & szabs are no-shows from last year and we have no new recruits.

Dizart picked 7/8 .. he missed the draw in Copenhagen, but still collected 8 pts as he picked Real Sociedad to lose at home for a bonus point.

wwe84 collected the wooden spoon but avoids last place, as he also picked Real Sociedad to lose at home.

N-Bomb & paper_aero finished last year's comp without a wooden spoon .. their streaks continue (see below).


spoonless streaks:

32 wks : paper_aero : last spoon in week 6 of 2011-12 comp (13 wks) plus all of last season (19 wks)
28 wks : N-Bomb : last spoon in week 10 of 2011-12 comp (9 wks) plus all of alst season (2012-13)

No-one picked the loss at home by Chelsea, but young ozzz2002 picked all of the other seven games for the weekly win. He flies up the table from 9th to 2nd!

KrivoyRog received a bonus point for picking a draw at Chelsea (the rest of us picked a home win) .. ozzz2002 and illiniman14 were the only ones to pick a Napoli win over Borussia Dormund.

Between us we had a strike rate of 66.6%, the 8th best strike rate in the ten years we've been running the UEFA comp .. the Record Book has been updated (see above in red).

N-Bomb & paper_aero continue their spoon-less streaks (see below) .. wwe84 collects back-to-back spoons and now stands on the last rung solo.

spoonless streaks:

34 wks : paper_aero : last spoon in week 6 of 2011-12 comp (13 wks) plus all of last season (19 wks)
30 wks : N-Bomb : last spoon in week 10 of 2011-12 comp (9 wks) plus all of alst season (2012-13)

No-one picked the draw in St Petersburg, but eight of us (that's over half the field) picked five of the other games for the weekly win.

The two tail-enders collected a wooden spoon each and are starting to fall behind the rest of the pack. We now have a mere 4 points separating the 13 runners in the pack.

N-Bomb & paper_aero continue to extend their spoon-less streaks, which go all the way back to 2011.

spoonless streaks:
35 wks : paper_aero : last spoon in week 6 of 2011-12 comp (13 wks) plus all of last season (19 wks)
31 wks : N-Bomb : last spoon in week 10 of 2011-12 comp (9 wks) plus all of last season (2012-13)

It was a full house this week .. 16 of 16 lodged picks.
There were five weekly winners .. three scored their first, leaving just three blanks in that column.

illiniman14 was the only one who kept his spot from the previous round.

Musical chairs should continue in the next round (three weeks away), as the first seven players are separated by a mere 2 pts .. ditto the next seven.

N-Bomb & paper_aero continue to extend their spoon-less streaks, which go all the way back to 2011.

spoonless streaks:
36 wks : paper_aero : last spoon in week 6 of 2011-12 comp (13 wks) plus all of last season (19 wks)
32 wks : N-Bomb : last spoon in week 10 of 2011-12 comp (9 wks) plus all of last season (2012-13)

Everyone bar one in the first four kept their spot from last week, but from there down no-one retained their spot.

wwe84 was one of this week's winners .. after 5 weeks he has four spoons and one weekly win i.e. wwe84 has attended every weekly awards ceremony.

We'll probably have another rendition of musical chairs in the next round (tonight), as the first seven players are still separated by a mere 2 pts .. ditto the next seven.

N-Bomb collected this round's wooden spoon, which ends his spoon-less streak at 32 weeks .. paper_aero continues to extend his streak.

spoonless streaks:
37 wks : paper_aero : last spoon in week 6 of 2011-12 comp (13 wks) plus all of last season (19 wks) plus 5 wks this season - still running
32 wks : N-Bomb : last spoon in week 10 of 2011-12 comp (9 wks) plus all of last season (2012-13) plus 5 weeks this season.

Between us we averaged 70.8% which is the 5th best strike-rate we've had over the 11 years of Champions League comps.

gtho4 replaces illiniman14 out front .. he picked 8/8 thanks to an equaliser by Benfica vs. Olympiakos with just 6 minutes to go. If the score had remained at 0-1, wwe84 would've avoided the wooden spoon (he picked an away win).

That spoon makes it 5 after 6 wks (he scored a weekly win in the previous round). In other words, wwe84 is still an ever-present at the weekly awards ceremony.

The next round is on Melbourne Cup day UEFA ( 7 ) Tue 5th November.

spoonless streak : 38 wks : paper_aero : last spoon in week 6 of 2011-12 comp (13 wks) plus all of last season (19 wks) plus 6 weeks this season [ still running ]

illiniman14 scores a weekly win and wipes out a four point deficit to make it a tie out front.

wwe84 also scored a weekly win to continue his run of appearances at the weekly awards ceremony .. two wins and five spoons after 7 weeks.

Dizart falls out of the first two spots for the first time. Sypher also falls to a new season-low .. and Howie72 climbs to a new season high.

The next round is tonight.

paper_aero scores his 3rd weekly win for the season to climb up into 3rd place .. which extends his spoon-less streak to 40 weeks.

The first five are separated by 3 pts .. and then there is a 3 point gap to the next five players, who are also separated by 3 pts .. and a point further back are the remaining six players .. and they're also separated by 3 points.

For the first time this season there was just one bonus point. Sypher gazed into his crystal ball and foresaw a draw at FC Basel .. the rest of us kept our sanity and picked a home win.

New lows for the season - dg_dave and Bxbarracuda.
New high - srini701.

For the first time this season wwe84 did not receive an invite to the weekly awards ceremony.
