It's incredibly tight at the top there... this end of the year is going to be INTENSE!



FAO Tippers! All known games for September and October are now online!
When the South American B fixtures are known I will alert you here as there were about 27 games uploaded today and could be missed amongst all of them if they show up early October.


EDIT: due to End of Year tests, European competition and Repechage fixtures all happening in November, I will upload fixtures week by week for that month.

I really enjoy the tipping even when I'm well behind the leaders. But this is not the same for all the punters on the list. Only a small number are still tipping. Many have dropped away. Do we need to pool some ideas for 2019? I have a number of ideas but I want to hear what others think.

Just landed at airport back home in a few days. So nobody has any thoughts? So perhaps its not an issue.

I suppose it's initially down to people forgetting to tip or getting bored early on... Would an auto email be useful? I know most people opt out of most emails these days so maybe not. Unless you were thinking about league structure?

I know what you're saying though!

Yes I was thinking of a league structure.

I'm loathe to make suggestions that would mean others doing a lot more work.

But here we go..
1) Extra point for those closest to actual winning score including draw-Just a bit more of a competitive edge-manual opperation
2) Divisions-Premier, Div 1, Div 2 etc. Gain extra point if promoted. 5 persons per division-manual op.
3) Keep present monthly, yearly winners
4) Novice table-first time tipsters. Manual op

envisage starting 2019

Recognition of achievements goes a long way to encouraging participation. So as well as monthly winners recognised then so do the leaders of each division and the leading novice.

Looking forwards to your comments/suggestions.

PS. I would be willing to manage one of the above

Yep, heaps more work. But us regulars could each be in charge of one of the above with an overall 'manager' if I may use such a term.

Never doubt your instincts! I initially thought Argentina would win, but went with history instead!

Same! I originally thought Argentina by 2, then changed to Aussie by 2 given the home advantage. Wrong! :oops:
