srini701 has wilted under the pressure .. Sypher scores his fourth consecutive weekly win to take over front-running duties. He's the 6th different leader so far.

He also earnt a bonus point for a truly outrageous, and very bold, solo pick. It was his first bonus point for the season, which plugs another blank in that column.

New high: Sypher, Howie72.
New low : BxBarracuda.

The other weekly winner was gtho4 .. and wwe84 collected back-to-back wooden spoons. He now has more spoons in his collection than ozzz2002.

.
Although Sypher's run of four consecutive weekly wins has come to an end, he's still our leader and, in fact, he extends his lead. He also had the hide top pick Manch City to win.

This round's pièce de résistance is a set of perfect picks lodged by ozzz2002. There were three upsets (one of them was a draw) and he picked all three of them. His last set of perfect UEFA picks was six year ago in the 2008-09 comp.

It's his first weekly win for the season, which plugs another hole in that column (there are now just three blanks in that column). That's the 19th weekly win so far.

There were three spoons this round which, co-incidentally, makes it 19 wooden spoons for the season.
    New high: Howie72 (again), LeoDaVinci.
    New low : BxBarracuda (again), acilarincocugu, PaulE.
The next round starts this afternoon, tonight, or tomorrow morning; aka 8 hours away

Sypher collects his first wooden spoon to end his run, at the top of the pile, at two rounds .. gtho4 scored this round's weekly win.

paper_aero has taken over front-running duties. He scored his first bonus point for the season, which leaves three players still looking for their first bonus point (which matches the three blanks in the weekly wins column).

He's our 7th different leader so far this season. Two of these seven now occupy the bottom two rungs of the ladder (and one of them collected the other spoon).
    New high: paper_aero
    New low : srini701, illiniman14, Lpez, BxBarracuda (again).
The final group matches will be played on Tue 8th and Wed 9th December. Picking winners of those matches may not be as easy as it looks, as some teams have already qualified for the knock out rounds. This article discusses the teams which have already progressed: www.bbc.co.uk.

LeoDaVinci collected his first bonus point for the season, which leaves George95 & N-Bomb as the only runners with a blank in that column.

The two leaders scored 5/8 and the two in 3rd place scored 6/8 .. which means we now have a triple dead heat, plus one, out front! aka a quadruple dead-heat .. or a four-way tie for first

This tipping comp started way back in 2003. This year's is the 12th edition. During those 12 long dark years, waiting for The Might Whites to find some cash at the end of the rainbow, nine players have score a perfect 8/8 (the ninth was three weeks ago by ozzz2002).

This round's pièce de résistance is a set of perfect picks lodged by Lpez, the Mexican from south of the border .. in his first-ever FT tipping comp! He also scored a bonus point for perfection plus a knighthood from Her Majesty, and jumps up four spots into 9th place.

Between us we averaged 72.1% .. the third best strike rate over the last 12 years.
    New high:Dizart.
    New low : no-one.
That brings us to the end of the group stage. So far we've had 96 picks. Another 84 picks and we greet the judges at the finish post.

We now have a rest through winter until Tue 17th Feb 2015 and the start of the Knock-Out Round, when the Champions League comes out of hibernation. The draw for the KOR will take place next week on Mon 15th Dec: www.uefa.com

PaulE and paper_aero are this round's winners with 6/8. They both missed the loss by Arsenal (picked by no-one) and Bayern Munich being held to a draw (a solo pick by wwe84)

That's a first for the season for PaulE, leaving Howie72 as the lone ranger, still looking for his first.

The four-way tie out front is no more .. that win, plus two bonus pts, sees paper_aero skip away to a 3 pt lead. As he has the best countback figures of the first four, it's effectively a 4 pt lead.

Our advance picks for the four semi-finalists are in the post above this one.

This week's winner is LeoDaVinci with 6/8. He missed the loss at home by Real (picked by no-one) & the win away by Juventus (a solo pick by Sypher).

With a bonus point in tow he climbs to 8th place, which is a new personal high. Howie72 is still the lone ranger, still looking for his first weekly win.

BxBarracuda and wwe84 collected a wooden spoon each. They lead the spoon stakes, by a very healthy margin.

paper_aero continues to lead the way. He maintains his 3 pt margin, and still has the best countback figures.

Our advance picks for the two finalists & the winner in the post below this one. Those advance picks, and our advance picks for the four semi-finalist, will bear fruit in the last three rounds.

The draw for the quarter-finals takes place tomorrow Friday in Nyon (near Geneva) at 12 noon CET, which is 1000 hrs GMT, 4:00am FT time.

.
The first leg of the quarter-finals saw three winners and six wooden spoons .. paper_aero extends his lead out front TO 4 points, which is the biggest lead we've so far. The next 4 pts cover the five players running 2nd to 6th.

LeoDaVinci climbs to 7th place, which makes it back-to-back personal highs for the season.

wwe84 again scores bonus points x2 and is now in double digits. He must've been the only person outside Portugal who picked Bayern to be behind at half-time, and fail to win the first leg when the referee blew full-time (as did LeoDaVinci).

Howie72 is still the lone ranger .. still looking for his first weekly win. George95 & N-Bomb are still looking for their first bonus point.

BxBarracuda collected his 3rd straight spoon, and is now one behind wwe84 in the race to have a cutlery set which matches the size of the set in the google kitchen.

If the unthinkable happens and Bayern Munich fail to progress to the semis, it'll kill off a lot of advance picks (scroll up to see the lists of advance picks for the semis, final and winner). There are four rounds left to the finish post .. the 2nd leg of the quarters (which start in a few hours), two semi-finals legs, plus the final.

The second leg of the quarter-finals, unlike the first leg, saw just one winner and two wooden spoons .. illiniman14 picks a perfect 8/8 and an entry in the ECL Record Book. It's just the 12th perfect 8/8 pick since this tipping comp started 12 years ago in 2003. Remarkably, three of those 12 were achieved in this year's comp.

He scores a bonus point for a perfect pick and jumps up into 4th, a mere point off the podium.

paper_aero continues to lead the way with (his lead has been shaved marginally from 4 pts to 3 pts) and 2nd to 4th are separated by just 2 pts.

Sypher and dg_dave collected a spoon each. Howie72 is still the lone ranger .. still looking for his first weekly win. George95 & N-Bomb are still looking for their first bonus point.

The draw for the semi-finals was made in Switzerland on Friday:
        Juventus v Real Madrid
        Barcelona v Bayern Munich

Those of us who picked Barca and Bayern to play in the final have just lost an advance pick. One player has no live picks for the last round (two finalists & the winner), and another two players have already lost one of their finalists. There are three rounds left to the finish post: two semi-finals legs, plus the final.

Three weekly winners and just the one wooden spoon this week. Howie72 scores his first win for the season, which fills-in the last blank in that column.

The three weekly winners scored 6/8 .. 3/4 for the four picks and 3/4 for x4 advance picks. They were the only players to score 3/4 for the picks .. a total of 9 players scored 3/4 with their advance picks.

George95 & N-Bomb are still looking for their first bonus pt.

No change out front .. paper_aero maintains his 3 pt margin out. The four players running 2nd to 4th are now separated by 4 pts (up from 2 pts).

There are just two rounds left .. 2nd legs of the two semis (next week) plus the final (first week of June). Last year the final was in the last week of May.

Two of the 8 pts next week are advance picks (pick the two finalists), and 5 of the 8 pts in the final are an advance pick (pick the winner). This leaves us with picks of 9 pts for the last two rounds to decide the podium spots (as the advance picks are locked-in). Our advance picks are in the post above this one.
15 of 17 players lodged advance picks:

Juventus are through and Real Madrid are out! There are now only three live picks for the winner of the tournament: PaulE & Sypher with Barcelona and BxBarracuda with Juventus.

Last week Howie72 scored his first win for the season. This week it's back-to-back weekly wins (plus a bonus pointing for a sol pick, again)and has now gone from 10th to 9th to 7th. George95 and N-Bomb are still looking for their first bonus pt.

paper_aero collected one of the five wooden spoons but retains his lead out front. The four players running 2nd to 5th are still separated by 4 pts.

Five of the 8 pts in the final round are an advance pick (pick the winner), which leaves us with picks of 3 pts for the last round to decide the podium spots (as the advance pick is locked-in). Our advance pick are at the bottom of this post.

13 of 17 players lodged these advance picks:

Advance tips
lodged in Round 14, second leg of knock out round

Pick the two finalists, and the winner
one point each finalist, plus 5 pts max for picking the winner

paper_aero is the winner! He went into the lead in Round 10 and from there spent 10 straight wks at the top of the pile. Three pts in arrears we had a triple dead-heat for 2nd place!

illiniman14 collected the silver on a countback. He had weekly wins vs. WS countback figures of +3 vs. +0 and +0 for PaulE and Dizart. PaulE collected the bronze medal as he had 3 weekly wins vs. one for Dizart.

PaulE finished the season with a perfect 8/8 and came out of nowhere to jump up onto the podium. Three rounds back he was 8 pts off a podium spot in 8th place! He finished with two weekly wins in the last 3 rounds and a new personal high. On the other hand, srini701 finished with a new personal low .. gtho4 collected his first wooden spoon and fell off the podium.

Best weekly wins was by the winner paper_aero with five. Best spoon count was eight by wwe84, who was the only player to reach double digits for bonus points.

Barcelona beat Juventus to win their 4th European CL title over the last 10 years (2006, 2009, 2011 and 2015). Last month they were crowned champions of Spain and then won the Spanish Cup, and yesterday they were crowned champions of Europe to complete The Treble: domestic champions, domestic cup winners & European champions, aka domestic Double plus European champions.

After yesterday's triumph, they became the first team to win The Treble twice. There have been eight Trebles since the first European Cup was won in 1956 (see second column below). This year's final was the 60th: eight teams have won 42 of those 60 titles (first column below).

European titles
10: Real Madrid
7 : AC Milan
5 : Liverpool
5 : Bayern Munich
5 : Barcelona
4 : Ajax Amsterdam
3 : Manchester United
3 : Inter Milan

Trebles
1967 : Glasgow Celtic
1972 : Ajax Amsterdam
1988 : PSV Eindhoven
1999 : Manchester United
2009 : Barcelona
2010 : Inter Milan
2013 : Bayern Munich
2015 : Barcelona

The defending titleholder was Dizart (gtho4 won it the year before and Dizart the year before that). That's it for another year.
