Last week we averaged 67.9% between us .. almost 5½ /8. It was the second-best effort in the 8 seasons that this comp has been running. This week we we improved again and broke through the 70% barrier. We averaged 71.8% which is almost 5¾ /8. We were inches short of the all-time best of 72.1%.

One of us picked a perfect 8/8 and collected a bonus point for his efforts .. our Kiwi cousin aka The Gooner picked the lot and flew up the table from 11th to 2nd!

PaulE is now our leader .. ozzz2002 and KrivoyRog have been dethroned and drop back to 5th place, two pts in arrears.

LeoDaVinci has again avoided the wooden spoon, extending his spoonless streak to 44 rounds. His last spoon was in week 14 of the 2007-08 comp .. another 11 weeks and his streak will extend to 3 years in elapsed time (the all-time record for any comp is 3 years and 1 week spoonless).

After three weeks no one has been able to run away with this .. will it continue?

Six weekly winners, two wooden spooners .. and we end up with a battle royale. It's a four-way tie for 1st place.

The Gooner is one of those six, and one of those four. In the last two rounds he's scored two weekly wins (one perfect) and climbed from 11th to 2nd to 1st!

George95 earns ad hoc award for consistency .. in week one he was 16th, week two 16th, week three 16th, and now in week four he's running 16th, again.

The first 10 are separated by a mere 3 pts (same as last week), and one solitary point separates the next 5 players (same as last week). Looks like no one will be running away with this comp this year .. the fat lady wil be singing for many more weeks.

Another high-scoring round. This week we average 71.6% between us, which is almost 5¾ /8. Once again we were inches short of the all-time best of 72.1% .. this season's comp is just 5 rounds old, and three of those rounds are in the all-time top 5 of best averages!

Four players picked 7/8 .. they all missed the AS Roma loss at home to FC Basel (which was picked by no-one). However, szabs picked a draw in Rome and collected a bonus point .. she was inches short of a perfect round!

Three other players also picked a draw .. George95, illiniman14 and ozzz2002. The bonus point was enough for George95 to move away from 16th place .. he was 16th in week one, 16th in week two, 16th in week three, and still 16th in week four.

The first 10 are separated by 4 pts (it was 3 pts last week). The next round is tonight: UEFA ( 6 ) Wed 20th October.

paper_aero picks 7/8 for a weekly win, and skips away to a 2 pt lead. He missed the win by Olympique Lyonnais.

Spurs were looking down at the abyss .. how did they come back from 4-0 down, with 10 men, to lose 4-3 and almost pull-off a miracle draw? Two words: Gareth Bale .. he scored a hat-trick. For more details, ask Sypher .. he'll give you a blow-by-blow run down.
  • the 3 players in 2nd-3rd-4th are separated by a single pt.
  • ditto the 6 players occupying equal 5th to equal 9th place.
  • there were no bonus points this round, not one!
  • srini701 climbs up to 5th place, a new season-high.
  • ditto illiniman14 up to 9th place, and George95 up to 14th.
  • KrivoyRog has dropped again .. in 3 rounds he's gone from 6th to 12th to 15th.
There were no away wins this week, making default zero. As this was less than the wooden spoon score, the default-rule has been amended: if the wooden spoon score is more than the away wins, default will be the wooden spoon score. The only defaults so far this season are Dizart x2 and triviapaul once:

triviapaul
week 5 : def =2 ws=3

Dizart
week 2 : def 2 ws=4
week 5 : def 2 ws=3
a1 means 1 pt added to triviapaul


a3 means 3 pts added to Dizart

The first 10 are separated by 6 pts (it was 4 pts last week and 3 pts the week before that). The next round is in a fortnight's time: UEFA ( 7 ) Tue 2nd Nov.

Somehow or other KrivoyRog managed to pick 5/8 for the weekly win. The rest of us scored 3/8 or 2/8!

Last week we has zero bonus pts; this week we had 8 of them. Five of the eight games were picked solo, or by two players, and a sixth was picked by just four players .. the remaining 2 games were picked by everyone bar one, and everyone bar two.

Five of us managed 3/8 .. and paper_aero was one of them. He actually extended his lead with that score as the next 3 players collected a wooden spoon each .. in fact 9 of the 16 players who lodged tips collected wooden spoons! I've got no idea if that is a record, as no one has ever tracked it over the years, but it must be close .. the standings table has red twos all over it!

The net of 9 woodens has caught LeoDaVinci. His remarkable run of 47 spoonless rounds has come to an end .. his last wooden spoon in this comp was way back in week 14 of the 2007-08 season! The time span between spoons was 2 years and 35 weeks, the second longest on record (see table below).

As most of the spoons were at the top end of the table, and most of the bonus pts were in the bottom half of the table, the 13 players in 2nd to 14th place are now separated by a mere 6 pts .. down from 9 pts in the previous round.

wks                    
56 : ElfTwinkle NHL [c] 2007 : entire 04-05 comp (26 wks) + 05-06 comp (28 wks) + wks 1&2 of 06-07 comp.
53 : Sypher FLC 2009 : weeks 38-46 of 2007-08 comp plus weeks 1-44 of 2008-09 season.
48 : gtho4 MLB 2006 : weeks 12-27 of 2006 season + entire 2007 (27 wks) + wks 1-5 of 2008 season.
48 : srini701 FT-PL 2009 : last wk of 2007-08 comp + 08-09 season (38 wks) + wks 1-9 of 2009-10.
47 : LeoDaVinci UEFA [b] 2010 : wks 15-17 of 07-08 comp + 08-09 (19 wks) + 09-10 (19 wks) + wks 1-6 of 10-11.

[a] record time span of 3 years and 1 week.
[b] equals 2 years and 35 weeks (2nd longest time span).
[c] equals 2 years plus one week.

I thought I had done awfully whern I had only picked 2 right in each day, but I'll probably still be in contention!

Oh boy, I bet I know who got the spoon for today... the one time I actually felt good about picking Arsenal!

George95 scored his first weekly win of the season, and climbs up to 9th place, a new high for the season.

illiniman14 collects his first wooden spoon for the season.

All of us picked the win by Chelsea, but no-one picked the upset loss by Arsenal. Two players had the hide to pick a draw for the Arsenal game, and collect a bonus point each for that effort: KrivoyRog and N-Bomb.

paper_aero has his lead has been cut from 3 pts to 2 pts, but extends his streak as leader to 6 weeks.

The 14 players in 2nd to 15th place are now separated by 6 pts. It was 5 pts last week and 10 pts the week before that. Only two of those 14 players retained their position from last week.

paper_aero extends his margin out front to 3 pts, which is where he was 4 weeks ago .. that makes it 7 straight weeks as leader.

All of us picked the win by Chelsea, but no-one picked the upset loss by Arsenal. KrivoyRog had the hide to pick a draw for the Arsenal game, and collect a bonus point each for that effort .. to make it a total of 6 bonus pts for the season, which is double the next-best .. and 6 players are still looking for the first bonus point. Everyone has a weekly win or a wooden spoon except for srini701 .. he has neither.

The 14 players in 2nd to 15th place are now separated by 7 pts. It was 6 pts last week, 5 pts the week before, and 10 pts the week before that. Only three of those 14 players retained their position from last week.

The 5 players in 2nd to 6th place are separated by a single point; ditto the 5 players in 8th to 12th place. We should see some more movement in the standings after the Round 10 games tonight. This comp is still wide open.

N-Bomb and triviapaul are this week's winners with 7/8. N-Bomb missed the Schalke04 win and triviapaul missed the upset loss by Benfica .. triviapaul broke his duck, it was his first weekly win for the season! That leaves us with just 3 players looking for their first weekly win.

ozzz2002 collected this week's spoon and falls to 8th, his lowest position so far this season.

All of us picked the win by Barcelona in Athens, all of us picked the win by Valencia (except one), and N-Bomb was the only one to pick the loss by Benfica. His homework this week: how did he pick Hapoel Tel-Aviv to win? He must also specify what brand dart-board he was using to pick up the only bonus point awarded this week, lol

6 of 16 players are still looking for the first bonus point. Everyone has a weekly win or a wooden spoon except for srini701 .. he has neither.

paper_aero continues to lead the way .. that's 8 weeks out front, and the margin has been +2 or +3 throughout. This week it's a +2 margin.

Matchday 6: there are two more rounds in the group stage (each club has one game left), before we stop for a long mid-winter break .. 13 of the 16 spots in the KO Round (to be played in mid-February 2011) have been decided:

A Tottenham Hotspur
A Internazionale
B Schalke04
B Olympique Lyonnais
C Manchester United
C Valencia
D Barcelona
D
E Bayern Munich
E
F Chelsea
F Marseilles
G Real Madrid
G AC Milan
H Shaktar Donetsk
H

The games involving these 13 teams in the next two rounds are "dead rubbers" .. as four of those 13 play each other, eleven of the 16 games in those two rounds have no impact on who goes through. Have a look at the picks & results for Matchday 6 in previous years .. there are some curious and/or weird results in there. Will those 13 clubs field their first team in a dead rubber?

There were 5 wooden spoons this week .. paper_aero collected his first wooden spoon but retained his lead. He's joined out front by gtho4 .. the other weekly winner was Howie72, his first for the season.

That leaves us with two players still looking for the first weekly win: srini701 and toocool4u .. srini701 is also looking for his first wooden spoon!

BxBarracuda scored his first bonus point for the season. He was the only one to pick Benfica to lose at home. That leaves with us 5 players who have zero bonus pts.

Last week the 10 players in 3rd to 12th spot were separated by 7 pts .. this is now down to 5 pts. One more round in the group stage before we stop for the long mid-winter break.

illiniman14 is this week's winner with 7/8. He solitary miss was the upset loss at home by AC Milan .. he picked a draw! This result was picked solo by PaulE .. it's his first bonus point of the season. That leaves us with 4 players who have zero bonus points.

Two players are still looking for the first weekly win: srini701 and toocool4u .. srini701 is also looking for his first wooden spoon!

gtho4 has opened up a 2 pt lead out front .. maybe he should go away on holidays more often, ignore the bookies and the form, and lodge his picks in advance.

Two weeks ago the 10 players running 3rd to 12th were separated by 7 pts .. last week it was down to 5 pts. It's now back out to 7 pts as Sypher collected the wooden spoon to fall to 12th spot, his lowest position for the season. If we exclude Sypher, 3rd to 11th are separated by a mere 4 pts.

That brings us to the end of the group stage, and Round 12 of the tipping comp. So far we've has 96 picks .. another 84 picks and this comp will finish.

We now have a rest through winter until Tuesday 15th February 2011 and the Knock-Out Round, when the ECL comes out of hibernation. The draw for the KO Round took place at the end of last week, on Friday 17th December :www.soccernet.com and www.uefa.com

2 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 3 0 1 2 1 2 ... 20

What does that list look like? It looks like a cricket scorecard on a Saturday afternoon for the #2 batsman, who was out for 20 runs in the 3rd over .. but it isn't. Those digits are the number of correct picks this week by all of us, all 15 of us.

Between us we lodged 120 picks and hit pay dirt with just 20 of them, for a strike-rate of 16.6% .. this is the 2nd lowest ever since the UEFA Champions League tipping comp started back in 2003-04 (this year's tipping comp is the 8th edition). Our all-time low is the 13.4% average back in week 13 of the 2005-06 comp.

Of the 8 games played two games were picked by no-one and 3 games were solo picks! Sypher won this round with picks of 3/8 and illiniman14 collected the wooden spoon with picks of 0/8 .. which is a complete reversal of the weekly awards for the previous round -- they swapped places -- illiniman14 won it and Sypher collected the spoon!

Picks of 3/8 is not the lowest scoring weekly win in this comp .. I've gone through all 8 tipping comps played to date and created a Record Book for the UEFA Champions League. The all-time low for a weekly win is 2/8 which was achieved, coincidentally, in week 13 of the 2005-06 comp .. looks like we all have problems with the first legs x8 of the KO Round in this comp!

btw a strike rate of just 25% for a weekly win is probably the lowest for any comp (in any sport) held over the 10 years we've been running tipping comps in this place.

The four players who did not have a bonus point scored one this week, which completes that column of the standings. Who else but Sypher would pick AC Milan to lose at home to Spurs .. if you ring his place this is what you'll hear when he answers the phone: COYS

As if that wasn't enough, Sypher picks Arsenal to beat Barcelona! (and this is form a Spurs supporter). KrivoyRog from the North-East joined him in Milan - he also picked Spurs to win. Next is triviapaul - he had the hide to pick AS Roma to lose at home to Shakhtar Donetsk .. and gtho4 was the only tipster to pick the draw in Marseilles.

  • no change out front with the 3 leaders.
  • srini701 retains 3rd spot without any weekly wins.
  • he's also the only person without a spoon.
  • toocool4u is also looking for his first weekly win.
  • ozzz2002 has fallen to 11th, his lowest position for the season.
  • 3rd to 7th are still separated by just 2 pts;
  • but 3rd to 13th are now separated by 6 pts, down from 8 pts last week.

    The next round is mid-March : UEFA ( 14 ) Tue 18th March, and the quarter-finals start in the first week of April.

    I prefer not to think of it as picking every match wrong, it was just picking every result that didn't happen correctly.

    and it should also be noted that you are one of only 5 players who have scored a perfect
    pick in this comp .. and we've had over 150 odd rounds of tipping across 8 seasons!

    Gtho4, I think giving Seven players a point for pikcing a draw is a bit much as that is nearly half the field. That result should have led to no-one getting a point.

    But that's how the system works; it's not something that's new. That' show the numbers fell.
    e.g. if it was 12-3-0 rather than 8-7-0 then 3 players would've scored the bonus.

    Of the 8 games played two games were home picks for all of us .. we all hit pay dirt with Real Madrid, but no one picked the draw at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea would progress if they kept FC Copenhagen scoreless .. and that's what happened; except they also failed to score.

    Inter Milan, the defending European Champions, needed a miracle to progress to the quarter-finals, as they'd lost the first leg *at home* .. they needed an away win; a feat which has been achieved only once in the history of the UEFA Champions League. Back in 1995-96 Ajax Amsterdam lost at home in the first leg of their semi-final against Panathinaikos, buy won away to progress through to the final:

    0-1 03-Apr-96 Ajax Amsterdam v Panathinaikos
    0-3 17-Apr-96 Panathinaikos v Ajax Amsterdam

    With complete disregard of history, four players had the hide to pick Inter to win away, and become the 2nd team to achieve that feat.
    • there were three weekly winners this week.
    • for srini701 it was his first weekly win for the season.
    • there were no bonus pts this week (same as week 6).
    • ozzz2002 collects his 4th wooden spoon for the season.
    • three of those four spoons have come in the last 5 weeks.
    • no change out front with gtho4 maintaining a 4 pt margin.
    • the 6 players in 3rd to 7th are still separated by just 4 pts.
    • toocool4u is still looking for his first weekly win.
    • srini701 is the only person without a spoon.
    There are 5 rounds of tipping left x8 pts a round = 40 pts max. Some of us cannot score the max pts as we've already lost some of our advance picks (see below). The draw for the quarter-finals will be announced tomorrow, Friday. The quarter-finals start in the first week of April.
