Anyone know what's going on .. what's the story? We've now had three consecutive rounds with zero bonus points.

Dizart and szabs are this round's weekly winners with 7/8 .. szabs missed the draw in the first game, and Dizart missed the away win by Benfica. That's a 4th consecutive weekly win for Dizart .. he joins triviapaul at the top of the pile.

One more weekly win and Dizart will equal the all-time record for consecutive weekly wins in any season-long tipping comp (achieved 10 times over the last 11 years by 8 different players) .. two more and he will become the foundation member of the Immortals Club; a legendary feat suitable for story-telling time with our grandkids!

The two leaders have put 4 pts between themselves and the rest of us .. the next 4 pts cover 13 players, which is the entire field apart from the two leaders and the two tail-enders!

The next round is tonight : UEFA ( 6 ) Wed 19th October : so far 15 players have lodged tips, leaving two to come.

.
The run of three rounds with no bonus points has ended .. there were four bonus pts in this round for solo picks: for the away win by Arsenal, and the away draw by APOEL Nicosia.

The CSKA game in Moscow was finished when the other 7 games had started. After the 90 minute mark in those seven games, I had my sheets finalised in readiness for the full-time whistle; as there was just a few bits of injury time left in a couple of the games. That's the first list above, showing triviapaul as the weekly winner (skipping away to a 3 point lead); and ending Dizart's attempt for a 5th consecutive weekly HoF. Over the last 11 years there have been 32 streaks of x4 consecutive weekly HoF and of those 32 only 10 had succeeded with a 5th straight weekly win (and none of those 10 succeeded with a 6th straight).

However, Arsenal scored deep in injury time (in the 92nd minute), the score changed from 0-0 to 0-1, all of us who picked a draw lost a point, and Dizart was one of 5 weekly winners for this round! The bagpipes are playing in the Kingdom of Fife.

Furthermore, as Dizart and dg_dave were the only ones to pick the away win by Arsenal, they collect a bonus point each .. which allows Dizart to retain a share of the lead with triviapaul. The two leaders have now put 5 pts between themselves and the rest of us .. the next 5 pts cover 12 players.

Dizart is the 11th player to score 5 consecutive weekly wins in a season-long tipping comp. Congratulations! One more weekly will be a unique feat; and he will become the foundation member of the Immortals Club. The next round is on Tuesday week, Melbourne Cup day: UEFA ( 7 ) Tue 1st November.

.
Four of the 8 games produced upsets, and two of them produced bonus points. Three players picked 5/8 for the weekly win .. KrivoyRog picked his 5 the hard way; he picked 3 of those upsets.

trivipaul consulted his ouija board and saw upsets coming. He picked 4/8 but three of those picks were upsets .. he retains ownership of the lead, but now it's solo.

This is slowly developing into a two horse race .. the gap 1st to 3rd is now 7 pts (up from 5 pts last week).

Dizart's run of weekly wins has come to an end at five. He failed in his attempt at a unique six and retains his status as the 11th player to score five consecutive weekly wins in a season-long tipping comp, over the last 11 years.

The next round is tonight : UEFA ( 8 ) Wed 2nd November.

.
For the 4th time this season there were no bonus points, not one.

With only one of the 8 games producing an upset, we averaged 69.1% between us, the 4th highest ever in any round of a UEFA tipping comp. The lack of upsets saw triviapaul collect his first wooden spoon for the season, which ended his 7 week reign at the top of the pile.

Dizart is our new leader. He scored yet another weekly to make it six wins out of 8 rounds played! The 8 players running 3rd to 10th are now separated by a mere 2 pts (down from 3 pts last week).

BxBarracuda and George95 are still looking for their first weekly win.

Two games were picked by no-one, one game was picked by just two players; and we ended up with 12 bonus pts for Round 9 .. five players scored their first bonus points for the season: BxBarracuda, George95, gtho4, LeoDaVinci and PaulE .. George95 collected two of them!
Ditto triviapaul, who's the first into double figures with 11 for the season .. next best, a long way back, is KrivoyRog with 4 bonus pts.

We're now back to where we were 3 weeks ago -- triviapaul and Dizart in equal first place 5 pts in front of the pack. The 8 players running 3rd to 10th are now separated by 3 pts (it was 2 pts last week and 3 pts the week before that).

KrivoyRog and Dizart have each received x6 weekly awards. All of Dizart's are weekly wins; while KrivoyRog has both varieties -- three weekly wins (all in the last 4 weeks), and three spoons (all in the first 5 weeks). He's slowly crawling up the table and is now 5 points off the podium (it was 9 pts back in Round 5).

The two tail-enders ar still looking for their first weekly win, and all of the top 6 are spoonless except for triviapaul.

The HoF award for this round goes to dg_dave with 6/8 . He also scored two bonus points for two solo picks and flies up the table into equal first place. This is his 2nd HoF in three weeks .. and 3 weeks ago he was 9 pts behind the leader!

We now have three leaders showing us the way, and they're separated by one point. The 7 players in 4th to 10th place are separated by 3 pts (same as last round).

The two tail-enders are still looking for their first weekly win, and all of the top 6 are still spoonless except for triviapaul.

.
illiniman14 made the deadline, as all games started at exactly the same time! There were some weird results in these 8 games, the last group matches for these 16 teams.

Zenit St Petersburg needed a draw to progress to the knock-out rounds .. and their game away at FC Porto finished a 0-0 draw (Porto had to win to progress). This was no surprise to four players -- they put 2+2 togther and duly picked the draw.

APOEL Nicosia had already qualified, no matter what the result in their game or the other one .. and duly lost at home, their fist loss for the season. Three players saw this one coming; they were facing east at the time.

Olympiakos v Arsenal: the result did not matter to Arsenal, as they had already qualified; Olympiakos needed to win to progress (and Marseille to lose or draw), and they duly won. Their win, however, was in vain .. Marseille were behind from the 23rd until the 85th when they equalised .. and then scored the winner in the 87th!

Put all those results together and the HoF award for this round goes to N-Bomb with 5/8 .. his 9 pt deficit behind 3rd is now down to 5 pts.

trivipaul skips away to a 2 pt lead out front over dg_dave, who relinquishes his share of the lead he had last week.

Dizart collects his first wooden spoon for the season and slips back to be 4 pts off the pace (he still retains 3rd spot) .. we're now down to 3 players without a spoon.

This spoon sees the gap back to the rest of the field shrink .. the 6 pts which separated the 5 players running 3rd to 7th last week has been halved to 3 pts.

The two teams running first and second in the leading football competition in the world, the FA Premier League, are out. Both of them failed to progress from their group:

Manchester City needed to win, which they did; but they also needed Villareal to either win or draw with Napoli .. they held out at 0-0 until the 65th when Napoli scored .. Napoli scored again 9 minutes later and it was all over red rover.

Manchester United didn't need favours from anyone. They had to draw or win away at Basel and they were through .. they achieved neither and out they went as well. Methinks Sir Alex is not a happy vegemite.

The most incredible result of the night was in Group D. Lyonnais were looking for a miracle, a seven-goal turnaround, and it duly arrived .. all the ducks lined-up! They needed Real Madrid to win away at Ajax (1-0 was enough) and they had to also win away but by six goals, to finish equal second and progress on goal difference. This is what their group looked like at kick-off:
                   W D L  F-A  GD  pts
    Real Madrid 5 0 0 16-2 +14 15
    Ajax Amsterdam 2 2 1 6-3 +3 8
    Lyonnais 1 2 2 2-6 -4 5
    Dinamo Zagreb 0 0 5 2-15 -13 0
Real did Lyonnais a favour by wining 3-0 away, and Lyonnais won their match 7-1 away! The manager of Dinamo Zagreb was sacked after the match. Ajax had two goals controversially disallowed for offside at the Amsterdam Arena and coach Frank de Boer had said after his side's exit that he felt an investigation may be appropriate. The final group standings were:
                   W D L  F-A  GD  pts
    Real Madrid 6 0 0 19-2 +17 18
    Lyonnais 2 2 2 9-7 +2 8
    Ajax Amsterdam 2 2 2 6-6 0 8
    Dinamo Zagreb 0 0 6 3-22 -19 0
George95 is this round's top tipper with 6/8 .. it's his first HoF award for the season! There were two wooden spoons, one at either end of the standings. The wooden spoon for triviapaul saw him fall back to the field and we now have a triple dead-heat out front .. dg_dave rejoins him, and iliniman14 becomes the 4th player to lead the comp or have a share of the lead.

The first 7 players are now separated by a mere 4 pts .. it was stuck at 7 pts for the last few rounds (it was a 10 pt spread back in Round 7).

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 we're at the finish post.

All of us will now have a rest through winter until Tuesday 14th February 2012 and the Knock-Out Round, when the ECL comes out of hibernation. The draw for the KOR will take place next week, Friday 16th December : www.uefa.com

Last minute goals and goals at the death had a huge impact on this round's results, and the tipping comp standings.

CSKA equalised in the 90th and 14 of us saw our pick fly out the window. Two players picked the draw; and they also earnt a bonus point. Now, take two points off N-Bomb and triviapaul, and give the rest of a point each .. how would the table look?

Three players picked a draw for the FC Basel game. It was 0-0 until injury time when FC Basel scored to defeat Bayern Munich .. this gave illiniman14 a solo pick and a bonus, and kept him in touch with the leader .. George95, Howie72 and paper_aero were the three who picked a draw.

Anyway, that's not what happened .. we still have the same three out front after the long winter break, but they're no longer on equal pts .. triviapaul is now back in the lead solo a single point in front of illiniman14 and 3 pts in front of dg_dave .. and the next 5 points cover the 7 players running 4th to 10th.

Before this performance, N-Bomb was 10 points behind the leader, and 9 points off the podium. He's now running 7th six pts behind the leader; and just 3 pts off the podium.

George95 was the HoF winner in the previous round .. this week he collects a wooden spoon. The next round is the 2nd leg of the KO Round : UEFA ( 14 ) Tue 6th March

triviapaul collects a wooden spoon and falls to 4th place, a new low point for the season (he was 1st or 2nd all season) .. illiniman14 is our new leader. LeoDaVinci and ozzz2002 have also established new low-water marks for the season.

Dizart is this round's winner with 7/8 and climbs up to equal 2nd with dg_dave, 2 pts behind the new leader .. at +6 Dizart has the best countback differential of any player, by a mile. The 6 players in 2nd to 7th place are now separated by just 3 points .. down from 5 pts last week.

Between us we averaged 67.6% which is the 6th highest for any round of any UEFA tipping comp since the first 9 years ago. That completes round 14 .. another 5 rounds and we greet the judges at the finish post.

dg_dave & srini701 are this week's winners. Both of them move up the table .. dg_dave displaces illiniman14 as front runner.

Dizart slips back from 2nd to 3rd, 2 pts behind illiniman14. He still has the best countback figures.

The 6 players in 3rd to 8th place are separated by just three points .. down from 5 pts last week.

Just the one bonus point this week .. BxBarracuda had the hide to pick a draw at full-time for the Barcelona game; and it bore fruit. He's still looking for his first weekly win.

The second leg of the quarter-finals x4 is next week:
UEFA ( 16 ) Tue 3rd April

Dizart picked a perfect 8/8 and is now just one point behind dg_dave, who retains first place .. illiniman14 slips from 2nd to 3rd to allow Dizart to step through. That's weekly win #8 for Dizart, which is twice as many as the next-best figures of weeklies x4 by dg_dave and N-Bomb. Dizart has the best countback fisgures by a country mile.

This just the 6th perfect pick in the UEFA CL comp since the first one started 9 long years ago, back in 2003. It's the only bonus point this week, as they were no upsets in any of the 2nd legs of the quarter-finals.

triviapaul collected the wooden spoon with 4/8 .. we nearly had our first-ever wooden spoon score of 5/8 (see Record Book above), but triviapaul went for one too many upsets! Between us we averaged 78.9% or 6.3/8 .. which smashed the previous all-time record of 72.1% set in week 2 of the 2009-10 tipping comp.

There are three rounds left in this comp: semi-finals x2 legs plus the final. All of our advance picks will come into play in those 3 rounds.

Dizart and paper_aero are the only players who picked all four semi-finalists with their advance picks; and both of them have three live picks for the two semis and the final (ditto George95, Sypher & gtho4) .. ozzz2002 has no live pick for the semis and final. He's lost both his finalists and his winner (see post above this one).

BxBarracuda is still looking for his first weekly win; and four players are still spoonless after 15 weeks.


Next Round : semi-finals x 1st leg : UEFA ( 17 ) Tue 17th April

Dizart scores another weekly win and is now back in the lead .. that's three wins over the last four rounds! That's weekly win #9 for Dizart, which is more than twice as many as the next-best figures are the four wins by dg_dave & N-Bomb. Dizart still has the best countback figures by a country mile.

Howie72 and Sypher were the other weekly winners .. Sypher scored his first bonus for the season, leaving two players still looking for their first .. paper-aero and szabs.

KrivoyRog collected this week's wooden spoon, to retain his strangle-hold on last place (that's two spoons in three weeks).

There are just two rounds left in this comp: semi-finals x2nd leg plus the final at the end of May. Nine players have a complete set of three live picks for their remaining advance picks (finalists x2 plus winner). Everyone except ozzz2002 has a live pick for the winner (scroll back three posts for a list of the remaining advance picks x3).

BxBarracuda is the lone ranger, still looking for his first weekly win; and four players are still spoonless after 17 weeks. The next round, the 2nd last round, is next week: UEFA ( 18 ) Tue 24th April.

It's a crowded podium this week .. six players scored a weekly win with a paltry 3/8 and two players collected a wooden spoon each. For illiniman14 it was his first spoon, reducing to three the number still looking for their first spoon.

Chelsea were reduced to ten-men but hung on for a draw to eliminate Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate, and Real Madrid won 2-1 to make it 3-3 on aggregate but lost 1-3 on penalties. With both Spanish clubs eliminated, no-one has a live pick for the winner!
(scroll back three posts if you'd like to admire our advance picks)

Winner : five points if they win the final, 3 pts if they're the losing finalist, two pts if they lose their semi-final, and 1 pt if they lose their quarter-final (added into Round 19, the final round).

In other words, no-one can earn 5 pts for pick the winner or 3 pts if they're the losing finalist.

There are three picks left for the final round, which means the maximum anyone can earn in the final round is 5/8 .. being 3/3 for the three picks plus 2/5 if your advance pick lost their semi-final. Everyone apart from ozzz2002 will receive 2/5 for their advance pick as we all had Barcelona or Real as our winner .. ozzz2002 chose Marseilles and will receive 1/5 as they lost their quarter-final.

Dizart is still our leader .. dg_dave is the only player who can catch him.
dg_dave now has a margin of 3 pts over 3rd place as illiniman14 slipped up with his first spoon, to make it a three-way tie for 3rd place .. with another two players just a point behind i.e. we now have 5 players, who are separated by one solitary point, doing battle for the bronze medal.

Chelsea play Liverpool on Saturday 5th May at Wembley and then Bayern Munich a fortnight later in Germany, at Bayern's home ground .. can they win both trophies with their caretaker manager, Roberto Di Matteo, at the helm? UEFA ( 19 ) Sat 19th May FINAL_ROUND.

It's a crowded podium this week .. eight players scored a weekly win with 4/8 (that's half the field) and ozzz2002 collected the sole wooden spoon. BxBarracuda scored his first weekly win for the season, finally completing that column of the standings.

On the other hand, it was a 4th consecutive weekly win for Dizart. He finished the season with a bang .. 5 weekly wins in the last 7 rounds! In fact he had a weekly win in 11 of the 19 rounds of the tipping comp. But wait, there's more - he ended up at the the top of the pile for the gold medal .. and it's his first-ever podium appearance in any FT comp!

dg_dave was next best with a weekly win in 5 of the 19 rounds (and zero wooden spoons). He collected the silver medal .. it's his first-ever podium appearance in a sport outside North America! His first podium finish was way back in 2005 when he won gold in the baseball comp. To add some spice to this effort .. it was his first-ever dabble in the UEFA tipping comp!

The battle for bronze saw a mere 2 points separate the next five players .. and illiniman14 won bronze, without a tie-breaker or countback. Besides the three medallists, triviapaul was the only player from amongst the rest of us who had a go out front .. he was also the only player whose bonus pts reached double figures.

PaulE and Howie72 also ended the season without a wooden spoon .. that's three players with spoon-less streaks which will continue into the 2012-13 comp:
19 weeks : dg_dave
27 weeks : PaulE (last spoon was in wk 11 last season)
34 weeks : Howie72 (his last spoon was in wk 4 last year)

Chelsea became the 5th English club to be crowned champions of Europe, which is more different winners than any other country in Europe. Their win was the 12th by an English club, one behind the 13 titles by Spain. Chelsea are the 57th champions of Europe, and those 57 titles are split as follows:

13   Spain        Real Madrid (9) & Barcelona (4).
12   Italy         AC Milan (7), Inter (3) & Juventus (2).
12   England    Liverpool (5), Manch United (3), Nottingham Forest (2),
                         Aston Villa & Chelsea.
6   Germany     Bayern Munich (4), Borussia Dortmund & Hamburg.
6   Netherlands Ajax Amsterdam (4), Feyenoord & PSV Eindhoven.
4   Portugal       Benfica (2) & FC Porto (2).
4   one each by Celtic, Marseille, Steaua Bucharest & Red Star Belgrade.

1st  : Dizart
2nd : dg_dave
3rd  : illiniman14


The defending titleholder was PaulE, and N-Bomb was last year's runner-up. This year's comp was the 9th edition and Dizart is the 7th person to win this comp .. no-one has retained their title, and only one person has won this twice: doomed. He's won this three times!

That's it for another season. We now have a four month break until mid-September, when we're back at the starting line for the 2012-13 UEFA Champions League. Chelsea are the Champions of Europe, and Dizart is the FunTrivia Champion! Congratulations to the three medallists, and commiserations to the rest of us.

In the interim, we'll see most of the ECL players in Euro 2012, starting Friday 8th June .. less than three weeks away. This comp is also run by UEFA but, unlike the Champions League, the winner is determined by your country of birth; the thickness of your cheque book is *not* part of the equation.

I've not been well at tipping outside of the US/Canada, but I guess I disproved myself in this one. Nice fought battle, Dizart, and thanks to George for the writeups.
