World Cup 2010 Fantasy Football Competition

 STROMA – High Adventure

World Cup 2010 Fantasy Football Competition

In a nutshell the competition is very simple, you have to ‘buy’ 6 teams and they must be from different groups (see group table below).  You have 60 million to spend, the price of each team is in brackets after their name in the groups table.  In every single match your teams play in they can score you points and cost you points.

PS – Come on STROMA boys & girls dont get beaten like last time by 3 HA entered teams taking 1st, 2nd & 3rd!  Plus can anyone remember one of Tom’s team, I think it was the one called ‘Tom Tom Tom’ getting the wooden spoon!?!

Points scoring:
Win = 5 points
Draw = 2 points
Loss = -3 points
Qualifying in 1st place from the group stage = 5 bonus points
Qualifying in 2nd from the group stage = 2 bonus points
Goal scored = 1 point per goal
Goal conceded = -1 point per goal
(losing / winning on penalities is the equivalent of losing / winning by a single goal)

£5 per team entered (you can enter as many teams as you like)
Winner gets 70% of the pot
Runner Up gets 20% of the pot
3rd Placed gets 10% of the pot
In the event of a tie the person who spent the least on their team wins, if still a tie the ‘winnings monies’ are split.

Latest News, Gossip & Comments on the teams:
Best Name – I think this has to go to Monsiuer Robert Coxon for “Thin kits allover”.
Most Likely Manager to get SACKED – Marc Cowlin for ‘Peasant United’.
Most hoped for FINAL – England vs Honduras, if this final happens Tim is paying for himself & John Cockram to go to Whistler for a weeks snowboarding!
AND FINALLY a thought !
Well, once the Spanish team get out of hospital (having had the lumps that the Dutch kicked out of them inserted back where they came from) I am sure they will be celebrating hard!  The team that actually played football won and it does seem fair, even though the best team to have never won the WC are still ‘the best team to have never won the WC’.
Regarding our little competition:  Congratulations must go to a 4 year old girl for winning, an Australian Lady (do they get Ladies in Australia?) for coming 2nd and a very dodgy man by the name of Dave Lister for getting 3rd.

As with all blogs the right to a reposte should always be given.  So here is Mrs Sheila Ellerton’s reply (gosh its so difficult to not make a joke about the aptness of Sheila’s first name given her nationality…..):

Dear Mike
I came second! Tell that cheeky bugger they do have ladies in Australia if I wasn’t a lady I would have put a lot of expletives in here.!
Sheila Ellerton
