GTAF 2010 Fifa World Cup Prediction League

Recommended Posts

The GTAForums.com FIFA World Cup Prediction League

 

The usual. You predict the results, and if you are correct, you will be awarded points. At the end of the tournament, the member with the highest points total will be awarded the 'Best 2010 GTAForums FIFA World Cup Predictor'. No actual prize will be given.

 

Rules/Scoring

 

- You must predict the result of the match before the match begins. If you are caught predicting after the match has begun or editing your predictions during/after the match, you will be banished from the competition and forced to sit in the 'Did Not Qualify' corner.

 

- You may post your predictions singularly over the course of the tournament or all at once. It is your choice, I'd personally look to enter each prediction a day before said match is due to begin, this way you can check injuries/suspensions for both teams.

 

- Predictions must contain the score of the match you are predicting. For example; South Africa 2 - 1 Mexico.

 

- You can therefore score on two accounts for each, individual prediction:

 

- You will be awarded 2pts for predicting the match result (win/draw). For example if you predict South Africa 2 - 1 Mexico and South Africa actually win 1 - 0, you will gain 2pts for correctly guessing that South Africa would win the match.

 

- You will be awarded a further two points by predicting the correct match score as well. If you predict South Africa 2 - 1 Mexico, you will be awarded 2pts for predicting the correct score and 2pts for predicting the match winner.

 

- You will not be awarded points if you guess the score correctly, but not the match winner as well. For example if you predict South Africa 2 - 1 Mexico, and the final match result is South Africa 1 - 2 Mexico, you will be awarded zero points.

 

- You can predict a draw between two teams and you will be awarded points if the match result ends in a draw.

 

- In the later stages of the tournament, if a match goes to extra time, the final match score at the end of extra time will be used for awarding points in this prediction league - whether it ends in a draw or a victory for one of the footballing sides.

 

- Penalties after extra time will have no bearing on the predictions. For example if you predict Spain 2 - 0 Germany and the match after extra time ends 1 - 1, and Spain then go on to win on penalties, you will not be awarded the 2pts for correctly predicting Spain as the match winner.

 

- In the event of the tie at the end of the tournament, the winner will be the member who has predicted the most amount of correct scores (i.e. 1 - 0, 2 - 0, etc).

 

- In the event that two members have the same score and the exact same amount of predicted correct scores at the end of the tournament, they will both be declared joint Prediction League Winners.

 

Finally

 

To make the competition a little bit more interesting, each member is allowed to choose four teams from the list below - two from the top tier, and two from the bottom tier - before the competition begins.

 

- If one of your top tier choices makes it to the final of the tournament, you will be awarded 2pts.

 

- If both of your top tier choices make it to the final of the tournament, you will be awarded 5pts.

 

- If neither of your top tier choices make it to the final of the tournament, you will be awarded 0pts.

 

- If one of your bottom tier choices makes it to the Knockout Stages (Last 16/Quarter Finals) of the tournament, you will be awarded 2pts.

 

- If both of your bottom tier choices make it to the Knockout Stages (Last 16/Quarter Finals) of the tournament, you will be awarded 4pts.

 

- If one of your bottom tier choices makes it to the Semi-Final/Final of the tournament, you will be awarded a further 3pts (on top of the 2pts already awarded for the team making the Knockout Rounds).

 

- If both of your bottom tier choices makes it to the Semi-Final/Final of the tournament, you will be awarded a further 6pts (on top of the 4pts already awarded for the team making the Knockout Rounds).

 

- You will be awarded 0pts if your Top Tier teams do not make the final, and your Bottom Tier choices do not make it out of the Group Stages.

 

Top Tier - The sides expected to qualify from their respective groups.

 

Argentina

Brazil

Chile

Denmark

England

France

Germany

Holland

Italy

Ivory Coast

Mexico

Nigeria

Paraguay

Serbia

Spain

United States

 

Bottom Tier: - The sides not expected to qualify.

 

Algeria

Australia

Cameroon

Ghana

Greece

Honduras

Japan

New Zealand

North Korea

Portugal

Slovakia

Slovenia

South Africa

South Korea

Switzerland

Uruguay

 

*I personally chose the 'Tiers'. If you disagree with me, shut the hell up.

 

The Final Prediction(s) (To be also used for the 3rd Place Play-Off)

 

Holland vs Spain

 

Score: (Usual rules, 2 pts for correct result, 4pts for predicting the correct result and score)

 

First Goal-Scorer: (If you predict the correct FGS, you will be awarded a further 2 pts)

 

FGS only counts in Regular/Extra time, penalties do not count, nor do Own Goals.

Also if you wish, you may also choose 'No Goalscorer' which will result in 2pts if the game is 0-0 and then goes into penalties, OR if the game finishes 1-0 but the only goal scored is an Own Goal.

The Official FIFA Website will be used to collect the correct name of the FGS in case of any controversy (e.g. deflections).

 

Time of First Goal: (If you predict the correct time of the first goal/no goals you will be awarded 2 pts)

 

Choices for time of the first goal are; 0-30, 31-60, 61-90, 91-120, NO GOALS SCORED.

For example, if you predict NO GOALS SCORED, and the game goes to penalties 0-0, you will be awarded 2pts.

If you predict 0-30, and the first goal is scored in 30:21, you will be awarded 2 pts.

If you predict 0-30, and the first goal is scored in 31:44, you will be awarded 0 pts.

61-90 covers up to the end of the 90th minute in regulation time. If the first goal is scored in the 92nd minute of regulation injury time then you will only gain 2 pts if you predicted 91-120.

The official FIFA Website will be used to collect the time of the first goal.

 

The prediction below will be used for the Tie-Break and thus will result in no points being awarded:

 

In the event that at the end of the tournament (including all points from the final and the points from the participants Top/Bottom Tier predictions), two or more participants scores are tied then the tie-break will take precedence.

 

Number Of Fouls Committed By Both Sides:

 

Simply predict the number of fouls that you think will be committed by both participating sides in the World Cup Final, e.g. 16.

 

The participant who predicts the correct amount of committed fouls (or is the closest to the actual amount of fouls committed during the game), will win the competition.

 

And again the Official Fifa website will be used to obtain this statistic. 'Fouls Committed' is under 'Goals Scored' and above 'Fouls Suffered' in the Statistics page of the match.

 

Example: http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/matches/round...1505/index.html - Fouls Committed during the Argentina vs Germany match was 34 overall.

 

Enjoy, and go get predicting guys!

Just do a new post. I'll try and update ASAP during the competition, but I will be working a helluva lot, and I won't even be in my home-country and by a laptop/computer during the World Cup Final weekend...

Poor today but with the adrenaline and excitement of the big games, England will be okay.

 

Proof that Alan Shearer doesn't have a clue. He wants to take all 5 strikers then play 4-5-1 with Gerrard sitting behind Rooney. W. T. F.

Personally, I think that may be one of Englands best formations.

 

As for the 5 strikers, I think 4 would be adequate.

Yeah I think that formation would be pretty good too with Joe Cole as cover for Gerrard and also able to play on the flank. But no English manager has tried this formation properly yet.

 

Thing with Shearer is how he wants to bring all five strikers yet only play one (Rooney) in a 4-5-1 formation. Why? confused.gif

Just a friendly reminder to everyone to keep conversation/s to a minimum in this topic when the World Cup officially begins, I was expecting 5/6 people to sign up, not 12 (and potentially more), and I imagine this topic will begin to overflow with posts of predictions come the middle June. Cheers.
