    Back on top, thanks Hungary!
    It was that weird scenario where my major rivals predicted an Iceland win but the majority of others predicted a draw.

    All in all, I'm paying for not having many exact scores. Not sure what I can do about that really; it's mainly just down to luck

    Hogree and Mackay were the ones I was talking about
    Although if it makes you feel better, you and Nichrome are rivals to me now!!

    Ngl I'm really bitter about having the most correct but still not being top.
    Clearly don't have the extra quality to predict exact results

    Nah, predicting the winner/draw consistently is where the majority of points are gained and it's where people are "generally" separated.

    Predicting exact results are usually lucky - especially with how many late goals have been scored so far - but in a competition this short (I.e: not a 380 game season), luck can play a significant part in the winner.

    Gotta admit, I've not been surprised about Portugal, always seem to be overhyped. And Austria and Iceland are solid teams. Gone for a draw both times, think people seem to think they're a massive team but never been that impressed by them

    Well you're one of the few that's been right so you've benefitted hugely - well done!

    Thing about this game is that you gain much more points if you're one of the few who predict a correct result. It's tight at the top though, should be a good one!

    How did I miss this. Just joined now.
    I don't mind that I've missed the first two rounds of the group stage but can I still be a part of this?

    I went 2-0 Wales (closest) and 3-1 England (nowhere near).

    Back up in to second but it was a poor round 3 in all honesty...

    Giving him a headstart innit

    Tbh I would be doing better than I am; I've only fallen down on exact scores which lets be honest, you seldom have any control of, especially with how many late goals have been scored in this tournament.

    You're my main competition anyway; as long as I finish above you, I don't mind

    Strong excuse for your poor score predictions

    I was ahead of you before that Iceland goal

    Not really pal!
    I almost always get points for "closeness" and if you're consistently getting closeness points, it's obviously just unlucky if you aren't getting exact scorelines.

    Quality shines through m8
    Nah in all honesty, for a tournament as short of this, the difference between the good predictors on here (me, you, Mackay, hogree, etc...) is almost always going to be luck.
