Welcome to a special edition of RailUK's Prediction League competition: Euro 2012!

There are a few differences this time around, owing to the nature of the competition:

• Players submit eight results per round in the Group Stage, and then all results for each round thereafter
• Standard point allocations (e.g. two points for correct result) are doubled for the Knock-Out Rounds
• The Attendance Bonus Point is not used and will instead be replaced by cards per match (with reds counting double)
• The Top Four in the Group Stage receive additional points in the Quarter Finals (12/9/6/3). The Top Four in the Quarter Finals, all things considered, progress to the Semi Finals
• The Semi Finals and Final are a Knock-Out competition; the Semi Finals will see 1st in the Quarters play 4th, and 2nd play 3rd
• CLARIFICATION: If a player is sent off all of his cards are worth a combined total of two points (either two yellows or a straight red)

See the attached document for more details, including details of tie-breaking.

Ivo [i.e. me] will be administering this competition, with the blessing of the competition's usual adjudicator (bb21). Everything will be managed in this one thread. The League Table will appear in Post #2 and will be updated regularly. Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me, or if I can't help for whatever reason please ask bb21.

Good luck!

See below for the League Table. This post will be the permanent home of the table, so be sure to check back on a regular basis!

Although this post will only show the "live" table, copies of former tables will be made available on request. I will aim to update this daily, but cannot guarantee that I will be able to. It will most definitely be updated to the end of each round before the completion of the next however.

Already got a stupid question for you, in what format should I put the scores?

Do I just quote the fixture list and put my predictions on there, or do I make seperate office document?

Sorry for my idiocy... :lol:

Didn't expect you to enter :p

Just copy the fixture list, and insert the scores you choose. It really is that simple.

Example: Mon 11/06 E117 England 10 v 0 France (D; 1700) [we wish :p]

See the mainstream Prediction League thread, here, for more examples (the red text is bb21's way of scoring, given he has moderation capabilities). Keeping the same formatting is not essential.

What if there's a draw in the knockout stage? Do you get a point for predicting a draw after extra time or for predicting the team that wins on penalties?

It's based exclusively on the results after 90 minutes. You're welcome to put in a prediction for such occurrences, but they aren't applied.

I'm a bit of a secret football fan :P

I'm not into it big time, but I always enjoy this sort of thing.
Then why not join the mainstream one come August? If you want anything to make it more appealing to you, there are two tables running concurrently in the League format and one of the two went right to the very last game! (Sorry bb21 - better luck next time! :D)

ROUND ONE:

Fri 08/06 E111 Poland 2 v 0 Greece (A; 1700)
Fri 08/06 E112 Russia 0 v 1 Czech Republic (A; 1945)
Sat 09/06 E113 Netherlands 3 v 1 Denmark (B; 1700)
Sat 09/06 E114 Germany 4 v 2 Portugal (B; 1945)
Sun 10/06 E115 Spain 0 v 0 Italy (C; 1700)
Sun 10/06 E116 Ireland 1v 1 Croatia (C; 1945)
Mon 11/06 E117 France 0 v 0 England (D; 1700)
Mon 11/06 E118 Ukraine 1 v2 Sweden (D; 1945)

cards: 12 (including red cards counting for double)
We need a Goals Scored tally as well. Obviously I can count it myself though, so it's not so bad. I assume you wish to declare 18?

Must have skipped that :oops:. Yes I wish to declare 18, shall I edit my post to reflect this or wait for bb21 to do so?

No need to worry. In the event you wished to declare a number different to the number you've compiled - and I have seen it happen (I've never done it though) - then it would be something we would need help with, but given it isn't there's no need to worry. You've clearly stated it now anyway.

You're welcome to insert it if you would prefer. I will notice if any results change though (I know they won't but still) ;)

------------------

Guess who forgot to change the number of cards after copy-pasting SS4's predictions? :roll: Oh well; better luck next time (or maybe not :p)...

Count me in, but I can't open the attachment which I presume contains the rules! Or, rather, I can open it, but all I see is gibberish!

Anyway, when are the deadlines for the variosu rounds? I shall be away after round 3, os I shall have to enter early!

Same as ever; at least one hour in advance. I've sent you the rules by PM.

Once we get to the Knock-Out phases, matches won't be known until the previous round is at least part-done, so you can't post until that point. Instead, if you won't be able to access the forum I will accept entries by text message if need be, given the amount of notice you've given!

Only in an extreme circumstance show as this however. Under normal conditions, no chance.

Just over 72 hours to go until the cut-off at 1600 on Friday. We now have 10 entries, which is a record for a TPL competition! Thanks again guys :)

However, no less than three regulars from last season's TPL have not yet entered, including both members of staff - will they miss out?

(Text me your answers if you have to bb21/Greenback ;))

Looking at the entries from forum members, nobody seems to trust England.

My darkhorse for the tournament i think will be Croatia.

Less than 24 hours until the start of Euro 2012, and with it our TPL competition.

Note that, unlike in the standard TPL competition, owing to the nature of this competition new entries will not be accepted after the 1600 cut-off tomorrow. Everyone who has entered should ensure that they allow sufficient time to provide their entries prior to each new round (these can be by PM if need be, or by text or e-mail as an absolute last resort); you will note that gnolife and newbie babs have already done so. Reminders will be sent out to players who have not entered their predictions within 24 hours (-ish) of the cut-off time in question. All players should also be ready to submit predictions up to at least the Quarter-Final phase; players will be free to submit predictions beyond that stage even if they have not qualified but they will not count for anything.

EXTRA INFORMATION: All scoring systems are now ready for use. Up-to-date League Tables will be provided at the first available opportunity, as will a summary analysis; all other information will be maintained by me but will be made available upon request. All information is being stored in .txt format to make the transition between analysis/compilation and data upload, and any data requests, as simple as possible. Note that as well as all former tables being maintained, round-specific tables will also be maintained. There will therefore be a total of six tables maintained (each of the first four rounds as well as Rounds 1/2 and Rounds 1/2/3).

EXTRA NOTE TO ALL PLAYERS: For Round 2, please ensure all predictions are in no later than 1600 on Tuesday 12th, and for Round 3, 1600 on Saturday 16th.

1600: Cut Off! No more entries please

Thank you to all who have entered and all the best for the competition. Remember that you will be expected to provide predictions for the first four rounds of the competition, so don't forget! You now have 96 hours to post your Round Two predictions (if you haven't already).
