PostSubject: The Great GNamer Forum Euro 2016 Sweepstake   Wed 1 Jun 2016 - 13:21

On June 10th the 2016 UEFA European Championship begins, or Euro 2016 to you and me. Twenty-four teams, their 23-man squads now finalised, are to take part in this festival of football, which culminates in the grand final on July 10th. Many teams are fancied; others, less so. Some good players will play well and others have a chance of coming in to form... and now we're veering dangerously close to the territory occupied by this article from 2001 (!).

Short story short, I ask you, fellow GNamer Forumite of some repute, to partake in a sweepstake. To the winners, glory - to the wooden spoon holder, a possible actual wooden spoon (but not the one I use to stir paint, cos that would ming). Sign up, and soon! Grin

List Of Sweepstakees (Is So A Word) And Their Teams:

  • ZeroJones - Switzerland and Turkey
  • Balladeer - Croatia and Wales
  • Crumpy Andy - France and Slovakia
  • The Cappuccino Kid - Belgium and Iceland
  • Muss - Spain and Hungary
  • Jimbob - Poland and Northern Ireland
  • masofdas - England and Romania
  • Treesmurf - Czech Republic and Russia (worst pairing as both were knocked out at the group stages Embarrassed )
  • gjones - Italy and Sweden
  • The_Jaster - Portugal and Albania
  • JayMoyles - Austria and Republic of Ireland
  • Drunkalilly - Germany and Ukraine (Ukraine were the worst team in the tournament as they lost all three games)

I'll play,

Any sort of system as 24 teams are a lot, I know when I did the rugby sweepstakes you got a top team and not so good team. Be great if we could get 12 people and we have a top 12 team and a bottom 12 team.

Ideally we'd have eight or twelve people, because both those numbers go into twenty-four. Any other numbers of players will be tricky to deal with! Shocked

No, it really isn't as I'd feel the same if I happened to be Spanish.

Si, El_Jaster. Wink I know a few people who are heavily into club football but don't give a monkey's about international: whatever floats your boat. It's just going to be a bit of fun, that's all.

Honestly, you let a man go before Muss for the #bantz and he thinks he owns the thread. Tongue

OK, we have our twelve angry men - contenders, you will go on my first whistle. By which I mean "Teams will be drawn in the next few days". There is a prize for the person with the winning team and one for the wooden spoon owners, natch.

Aaaaaaand I'm back to not being interested in the footie. Which one came from the top half of the draw Zero? I can't really see either of them getting through the group stages.
