i'll huv a wee shoat, jist fur the sake o' it

Scotland 2 - 2 Belgium - scotland robbed of win by abyssmal defending
R.o.Ireland 1 - 0 Sweden - colossal defensive display by the irish, scoring with aid of a deflection
England 0 - 0 Moldova - disgraceful display, moldova capable of so much better (fnur fnur)
N.Ireland 1 - 5 Portugal - one sided, ireland's goal a consolation effort after portugal turn off
Romania 2 - 1 Hungary - romania slowly getting back to the excellent team they were years ago
Germany 4 - 0 Austria - a horsting (3-0 half-time)

tech, if you want to jump in on the regular weekly punt, now would be a good time, while its still early season and not many points on the board.
Up to yourself, really. But you're welcome if you want.

In reply to an earlier post on 3 Sep 2013, 18:09:07 BST
aye, on ye go then, i'll pitch in - it'll be better than waiting for the mighty killie's first win of the season, aye.

MC Zaptone says:
Right then tech, unless anyone minds (we try to be democratic) I'll start you off on Eleven points that's 5.5 for the first two weeks you weren't punting. Now you sink or swim!
Is that ok gang?

Hey - that starts him (?) off with more points than me and Wharfy (and a couple of others too) - but as all of us at the bottom end of the table have been such complete plonkers so far - I actually like the idea of catching up even further than I thought I might have to.

By the way TS - several of us punters have actually met up (face to face) at PPUs and they will know that I am sincere when I say welcome aboard (oh yes - and that you are now a target to catch).

Seriously - welcome aboard.

☺ ☺ ☺

Our first Scot (so far as I know), definitely welcome.

We all have the same reaction to Mystic Wharfy only managing 6 points so far this term:

This one:

Although to be fair Wharfy, your holiday punt held you back and I'm quite sure you'll have the last laugh.

tech, I'd be demanding a formal unveiling at a major venue, a thirty point lead, £140K a week and free biccies for the season!
Welcome aboard.
Moving on......
Schiz will be back from holidays tomorrow full of the joys of beating Spurs and signing a German Wizard in midfield and Chelsea nicking Willian. He will be that happy he might even get the first round in at The Windsor.
Naaaa he'd never be that happy!

Have a good week y'all.

Might take a back seat for this season.....maybe not ;-)

cheers mc/folks, it's the only football punting game i've ever wanted to play for. would have been happy to start on zero, so, the pressure's now on me to leather y'all by 11 points or more by the end of the season :)

now, english football? i believe the old etonians are the team to follow these days? :)

Quite wrong, old bean. This semester we are all hip-hooraying Bullingdon
Lawn Croquet and Association Football Club or Bully Bertie FC as us chaps
call them, they are frightfully good, don't you know. They play in exquisitely tailored kit in delightful hues of chartreuse and marigold. I often have my man Chester join in the chanting "you're under-privileged oiks....and you know you are" and my favourite "who ate all the petit-fours, who ate all the petit-fours". You lot really should come and watch them sometime, no wait you can't, they would never let you in.
Oh well, never mind, toodle pip.

Back with you all again and back to work :-(
At least the Gunners seem to be picking up a bit after their terrible start against Villa...and of course we can always be relied upon to beat the Scum from White Heart Lane :-))
So fun punt! Here we go...no offense meant but suprised to see so many punting on Scotland to beat Belgium! Are you sure?? Belgium the team that includes Kompany, Fellaini, Vertonghen, Eden Hazard etc??? I don't think so!

Scotland 1-3 Belgium
Rep Ireland 1-1 Sweden
England 2-0 Moldova
N.Ireland 0-2 Portugal
Romania 2-2 Hungary
Germany 3-0 Austria

Hi Schiz, glad you're back safely, hope you had a great time in Spain.
You do realise Cafe Helen was closed during your absence, lack of late night drunken trade! (Actually, we were at Abu Zahd & Green Valley last Sat. Afternoon and thought we might grab a shawarma at C. Helen but it was closed, is it nighttime only?).
Re: Belgium...at present I think they have a generation of players to rival
any in the history of football and on paper they should win the World Cup hands down but as Brian Clough famously said "the games played on grass, not paper"! I suspect that even though the have a decent manager in Marc Wilmots (remember him?) their biggest stumbling block is that they play in different leagues all over Europe and the may not have both the infrastructure or history to fulfil their potential.
But what an amazing array of talent they have:

GK Koen Casteels (age 21) Hoffenheim
GK Thibaut Courtois (age 21) Atlético Madrid (Chelsea owned)
GK Simon Mignolet (age 25) Liverpool
DF Toby Alderweireld (age 24 )Atlético Madrid
DF Laurent Ciman (age 28) Standard Liège
DF Guillaume Gillet (age 29 ) Anderlecht
DF Nicolas Lombaerts (age 28) Zenit Saint Petersburg
DF Sébastien Pocognoli 1 August 1987 (age 26) 10 0 Hannover 96
DF Daniel Van Buyten (vice-captain) 7 February 1978 (age 35) 72 10 Bayern Munich
DF Jelle Van Damme 10 October 1983 (age 29) 31 0 Standard Liège
DF Jan Vertonghen 24 April 1987 (age 26) 49 4 Tottenham Hotspur
MF Nacer Chadli 2 October 1989 (age 23) 15 2 Tottenham Hotspur
MF Kevin De Bruyne 28 June 1991 (age 22) 14 3 Chelsea
MF Steven Defour 15 April 1988 (age 25) 38 1 Porto
MF Mousa Dembélé 16 July 1987 (age 26) 50 5 Tottenham Hotspur
MF Marouane Fellaini 22 November 1987 (age 25) 43 7 Manchester United
MF Eden Hazard 7 January 1991 (age 22) 38 5 Chelsea
MF Timmy Simons 11 December 1976 (age 36) 93 6 Club Brugge
MF Axel Witsel 12 January 1989 (age 24) 40 5 Zenit Saint Petersburg
FW Zakaria Bakkali 26 January 1996 (age 17) 0 0 PSV
