If Uruguay even make the final I'll donate all my points to you!

They are properly rubbish.

Thats quite a hefty points prize for the winner but ok its available to everyone I suppose.

Can I make a suggestion? - that we leave this addition to the predictions until the group stages are over. The reasoning behind that is some people won't realise that the routes to the final will make some teams less likely to meet in the final because of the way the knockout games are planned.

For example: Group C winners will meet Group D runners up - Group A winners will meet Group B runners up and so on.......

So say if someone fancied Germany as winners and Iceland as runner up for arguments sake, they might already have been drawn against each other earlier so the meeting in the final could never take place.

I've looked at the routes to the final and without some dedicated time spent analysing them it's a bit complicated. I just think it will be easier for people to make a more informed choice at least, when we know how things are more likely to pan out. :dunno:

If anybody wants to wait to make their bonus predictions they can do. If those who have already made their predictions wants to ammend theirs and do it again after the group stages, that’s fine also...

There is no rush for the bonus predictions...

You may have a point. I can adjust the points to say 20 for the winner, 10 runner up and 15 goal time maybe?

Sound better?

noooooo...predicting a winner and a runner up at this early stage is a serious bet. Keep the original points

I think 20 sounds better, it's a decent haul for anyone and it's less likely to hike someone above a predictor who has been canny all the way through only to see themself get overhauled by someone less so, just coz they didn't pick the winner. 10 & 15 for the others is fine. :thumbsup:
