Euro

France
2016


The European soccer championships begin next month on Friday 10th June. The final will be played in Paris on Sunday 10th July. The 24 teams that have qualified for the Euro 2016 finals tournament are as follows (previous editions had 16 teams). Spain beat Germany 4-0 to win Euro 2012, Spain beat Germany 1-0 to win Euro 2008 and Greece beat Portugal 1-0 to win Euro 2004.
    15th European Championship

    Albania

This is the 4th edition of the Euro tipping comp. The comp will have 9 rounds, 8 games each round (except for last round of group matches, Round 5, plus the semis and final). Advance picks will plug the holes in R5 plus the semis & final to get to the 8 pts, same as UEFA Champions League. Bonus pts will also be awarded, same as the UEFA and FLC tipping comps, with the added spice of a bonus point if you're the weekly winner (the round's winner) solo:
  • perfect picks 8/8.
  • you're the round's winner solo or one of two, another bonus pt.
  • solo pick or one of two.
  • no one picks win, whoever picks a draw, e.g. 9-3-0 the three who picked a draw.
  • no one picks draw, whoever picked the upset win, e.g. 10-0-2 (won't apply if even split, e.g. 6-0-6).
If there's a dead-heat at the end of this comp with this scoring system, I'll be a monkey's uncle. If we do, the usual HoF vs. WS countback, and then bonus pts if equal, will apply. As the winner of the Euro 2012 tipping comp, George95 is the defending title holder. The podiums at previous comps looked like this:
                Gold      Silver      Bronze   
    Euro 2004   wez ace_sodium gtho4
    Euro 2008   srini701 jill-geo Sypher
    Euro 2012   George95 N-Bomb illiniman14

The 2016 edition of the Euro tipping comp saw 18 runners line-up at the starting gates, which equals the record set in 2012 for a Euro comp at FT (there were 13 runners in 2008 and 17 runners back in 2004).

We have 13 survivors from the 2012 comp who are back for another dose: AlonsoKing, Dizart, George95, Howie72, illiniman14, LeoDaVinci, N-Bomb, paper_aero, srini701, wwe84, gtho4, ozzz2002 and Sypher. The last three tipsters are the only survivors from the first edition back in 2004. The defending title holder is George95 (N-Bomb won silver in 2012 and illiniman14 won bronze).

We have, however, roped in five newbies for Euro 2016: ElfTwinkle, dg_dave, Fifiona81, PaulE and terraorca. Welcome aboard! However, it's welcome back! for ElfTwinkle, as she participated in the Euro 2008 comp. The five no-shows are BxBarracuda, kevinatilusa, KrivoyRog, szabs & trev1.

Spain are the defending titleholder at Euro 2016. When they won Euro 2012, they became the first to retain their title since the competition started back in 1960. They began their defence with a very late goal against the Czech Republic. As the other games were all played out according to the script, except for the England v Russia game, where Russia equalised at the death, there were no bonus points in Round 1.

We have three leaders with 7/8 and three tail-enders with 4/8 .. with the other 12 runners sandwiched in-between. There's a long way to go before we find the winner of this comp .. there are 9 rounds with 8 pts up for grabs each round.

A summary of our first set of advance picks ins in the post above this one.

In the first round AlonsoKing went for upsets, but none of them came home and he collected a wooden spoon. He went for it again and this time it bore fruit and is this round's winner. He also collects two bonus points for solo picks, plus another one for winning the round solo, and jumps up the ladder from last all the way to the top and into the lead!

His homework for the weekend: explain in 200 words or less how Russia lost to Slovakia, and how Portugal were held to a draw by Iceland .. and then explain how you picked both results.

No-one kept their spot from the first round .. we all moved up or down a spot or two, or 11 or 15. The third round has starts in half an hour.

Results are here: http://www.livescore.com/euro/fixtures/

I tend to root for outsiders. What better outsider to pick than Iceland, a country with only 330,000 inhabitants? They're not too bad either, with two victories over The Netherlands in qualifying (we Belgians find this very amusing). Portugal on the other hand doesn't score much, only 11 goals in 8 games in qualifying. A draw seemed like a feasible outside bet.

Slovakia on the other hand was just intuition. Nobody had picked them so I went for it.

wwe84 and srini701 are this round's winners as the upsets continue. Round Three sees the first game where none of us got it right (in fact there were two of them), and another had just one right as a solo pick.

srini701 collects two bonus points and replaces AlonsoKing out front. A mere 2 pts now separate the first six players (it separated the first four last round). Once again no-one kept their spot from the previous round .. we all moved up or down a spot or two, or eight.

The next two rounds will determine which countries progress from the group stage to the Round of 16, the first knock-out round. Please note that we have just three days between the last group round, Euro 2016 [5] Wed 22nd June, and the 1st KO round: Euro 2016 [6] Sat 25th June. The participants in the first two games will be determined by Tue 21st, but the other six will not be known until Wed 22nd.

A summary of our advance picks x2 sets is in the post above this one.

Once again we have two games picked by no-one. This round's winners scored 4/8, the lowest so far.

The first two retain their spots from the previous round and are joined by ozzz2002. The three out front have skipped away to put two points between themselves and the peleton, where a mere 2 points separates the next 7 runners.

No-one picked the loss by Spain, whose reward for losing and finishing second in their group is a KO R16 match against Italy .. and eight of us have picked both of them as a semi-finalist .. and four of us have both France and England as a semi-finalist (England finished second in their group behind Wales, which threw them onto the same side of the draw as France).

Unlike the previous three rounds (where no-one kept their spots), six of 18 kept their spot from the previous round.

Please note that we have just three days between the last group round, Euro 2016 [5] Wed 22nd June, and the 1st KO round: Euro 2016 [6] Sat 25th June. Both participants in the 1st game and second last game have been determined, but all of the teams in the other six will not be known until after the final group matches later today (early tomorrow morning downunder).

Try flying from Virginia (driving to the airport in rush hour traffic) to Louisiana to Dallas...and it's only 4:40pm in Dallas!

Once again we have two of eight picked by no-one. This round's winner again scored 4/8, equalling the lowest so far.

We had yet another edition of musical chairs as only 4 players retained their spot from the previous round .. gtho4 joins the two out front to make it a party of three who are 2 pts ahead of the peleton, where a mere 2 pts again separates the next 8 runners.

That brings us to the end of the group stage - Germany, Italy, Spain, France and England have all ended up on the same side of the draw (the bottom half, coloured brown) .. but only two of them will reach the semis, if they win their next two matches (R16 and quarter-final): Germany/Italy/Spain plus France/England. None of us have Slovakia, Ireland or Iceland as an advance pick.
    Switzerland v Poland
    Croatia v Portugal
    Wales v N Ireland
    Hungary v Belgium
    Germany v Slovakia
    Italy v Spain
    France v Ireland
    England v Iceland
At the moment, all of us have a complete set of live picks (see post below this one), but eight of us will lose one of Italy and Spain when they play each other on Monday.

Tips for the KO round R16 are due on Saturday (breakfast time in the USA through to the wee small hours of Sunday in NZ): Euro 2016 [6] Sat 25th June. We will also be lodging our final set of advance picks: two finalists and the winner. If your two finalists are on the same side of the draw, you won't score 2 pts!
