    NSC EURO 2016 Prediction Competition - Main Thread


    6 Not allowed!
    Entry is now closed and this is the main thread for all predictions.

    Draw has been made, see below, along with all the rules and stuff. Tables will be posted after each match except some of the weekday 2pm kick offs where I'll be at work so you'll have to wait a little while longer for those.


    FORMAT
    This prediction competition operates as a knock-out:

    GROUP STAGE will see 4 mini leagues of 10 people each and will cover all the group games. The top 4 in each group plus 2 highest scorers from across the groups will qualify for the next phase.

    SECOND GROUP STAGE will have 3 groups of 6 people each and will cover the Second Round. All scores are reset to 0 and the top 2 in each group plus 2 highest scorers across the groups will qualify for the next phase.

    QUARTER-FINALS will also cover the quarter-finals and see the last 8 paired with each other. Scores set to 0 the highest scorer of each pair advances to the semi-finals.

    SEMI-FINALS will repeat the process of the Quarter-Finals with the last 4 split into two pairs - highest scorer from each advances to the final. Score set to 0.

    FINAL Involves the last two, score set to 0, highest score wins the tournament.

    RULES

    Predicitions to be posted by following dates (I will accept late entries but these will score 0 for any matches already played):
    a) 1st set of group matches - 7.59pm Fri. 10 June
    b) 2nd set of group matches - 1.59pm Wed. 15 June
    c) 3rd set of group matches - 7.59pm Sun. 19 June
    d) Second Round - 1.59pm Sat. 25 June
    e) Quarter-Finals - 7.59pm Thu. 30 June
    f) Semi-Finals - 7.59pm Wed. 5 July
    g) Final - 8.59pm Sun. 10 July
    All predictions are to be posted on this thread, except for the Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Final when those remaining will PM their predictions to me.
    My decision is final but any errors of maths etc. let me know!

    SCORING
    Will be as follows:
    a) HALF TIME SCORE - 1pt for correct result (eg, Win score, draw), 2 pts for correct score
    b) FULL TIME SCORE - 2 pts for correct result, 5 pts for correct score.
    c) FIRST GOAL - 10 pts for correct time, 6 pts for being up to and including 3 minutes either
    side, 2 pts for being 10 minutes either side, 1 pts for 15 minutes either
    side.
    d) YELLOW CARDS - You will be guessing the total for both teams combined, if your total
    is correct that is the number of points you will score (eg. If you guess
    7, and there 7, then you will score 7 pts). If 0 then you will score 1.
    e) RED CARDS - As yellow cards except your score is multiplied by 2.
    f) EXTRA TIME SCORE - For knock-out round only, 3 pts for correct result, 6 pts for correct score.
    g) PENALTIES - Knock-out round only, 4 pts for correct result, 8 pts for correct penalty
    score.

    JOKER. You will be permitted to play a joker for each set of matches in the group stage, plus one in the Second Round, one in the Quarter-Finals and one in the Semis. For the FINAL you will be permitted to play a joker on a single aspect e.g half time score or yellow cards which will double you points for that only. For all other matches the joker will DOUBLE your total points tally in the match you have indicated. If someone indicates more than one per set then I will take the first listed only.
    TABLES. In the event of a tie in points, position will be decided first on correct first goal guesses, then correct full time scores, then half time scores, then total of red cards guessed then yellow cards. After that I toss a coin! Once the knock-out phase has been reached, then after first goal guesses, it becomes penalty score guesses, extra time guesses, then full time guesses. I’ll try and update tables after each day.

    KNOCK-OUT PHASE. If scores in a pair are level after each set of matches then the tie will be decided by count back. I will go back over all the matches and award a point for each section you beat your opponent in, the one with the highest cumulative total wins. Should it still be a tie, then I will go back to the last game you predicted in Round 2 and start counting back. I will repeat this process until I have a winner. For the Final there will be a couple of extra predictions on corners and possession which will be used in event of a tie.


    Writing out your predictions.

    If you could all do the following when posting them then it will be easy for me to work out who is predicting what:

    FRANCE (1) 4 v 2 (2) ROMANIA (Brackets indicate half time) *** (Stars indicate playing your joker)
    1st G = 23rd Minute
    YC = 7
    RC = 2

    For the knock-out rounds:

    ALBANIA (1) [2] 3 v 3 [2] (0) ICELAND (Square brackets indicate full time - only add if you want to predict an outcome in extra time)
    1st G = 45 Minute
    YC = 13
    RC = 4
    PEN; 14-13 Albania.

    NB: All goals scored in injury time of each half will count as 45 or 90.
