CHAMPIONS LEAGUE GUESSING GAME 2016-17

Post by daib0 » Mon Sep 05, 2016 2:38 pm

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE GUESSING GAME 2016-17

An Individual game for our forum (not directly related to any other forum although on a few others: in all, Reading, Blackpool, Peterborough, Newcastle & Watford). It’s the first time we’ve tried this one in this format, so have a go!!
Super super easy - choose three teams, any three teams, you think will do very well - well, hopefully the best - in the Champions League 2016 - 17. These will be YOUR teams to watch all season! You will get points awarded according to how far these teams of yours progress.


Only two simple rules :
1.. you can’t name more than any one team from one country - they have to be from three different countries
2.. you can’t name exactly the same three teams as anyone else on your forum ! So first to post their selection holds rights on that selection - no - one else can copy it afterwards !! So get in quick…



The complete list of participating European teams is here in order of the group stages:

GROUP A
Arsenal
Basel
Ludogorets Razgrad
Paris St. German

GROUP B
Benfica
Napoli
Dynamo Kiev
Besiktas

GROUP C
Barcelona
Manchester City
Borussia Monchengladbach
Celtic

GROUP D
Bayern Munich
Atletico Madrid
PSV Eindhoven
Rostov

GROUP E
CSKA Moscow
Bayer Leverkusen
Tottenham Hotspur
Monaco

GROUP F
Real Madrid
Borussia Dortmund
Sporting CP
Legia Warsaw

GROUP G
Leicester city
Porto
Club Brugge
Copenhagen

GROUP H
Juventus
Sevilla
Lyon
Dinamp Zagreb

PICK THREE AS YOUR THREE TEAMS - just three teams from anywhere in those lists above (not one from every group)!!!


Points to be awarded for each team

Group stages - according to the final table of the group stages there will be forum points for the four finishing positions of the teams in each group:
5 points (the best team) // 4 - runner-up // 2 - third place // 1 - last in the group
(N.B. third places will not receive more points later in this forum game as they transfer to the Europa League, and fourth places obviously stop their participation altogether at this stage)

Round of 16 - for successful teams (winners) add TWO more points on to the score

Quarter-Finals - for winners add TWO more points on to the score

Semi-Finals - for winners add THREE more points on to the score

Final - the winner team adds THREE more points on to the score

Therefore if you predict the outright winner as one of your teams … who might that be? … you would be guaranteed a grand 15 points for starters - but you have to consider the additions of two other teams as well to get your final total!

ALL ENTRIES IN the day before the group stages kick off - so I need them by Monday 12th September 2016

I will be making updates after every stage of the competition …


END of season we will have honorary awards of :
FORUM GOLD
FORUM SILVER
FORUM BRONZE
Diploma of merit



Have fun !!

Plenty of time yet ...

that's the way - once we get more than half a dozen or so in I'll do a chart so you see what combinations of 3 choices have already gone!

OK, only TWO days left for entries.

Remember - it's picking ANY THREE TEAMS from this season's Champions League as your favourites to do well - see the first post #01 for the simple explanations.


Only two simple rules :
1.. you can’t name more than any one team from one country - they have to be from three different countries
2.. you can’t name exactly the same three teams as anyone else on your forum ! First come, first rights - so you can see which selection/s have been used here is a list of entrries & teams up till now.

Here are the results after the group stages. To be honest, you won’t see too much of interest … yet. Most of your teams were group winners or runners-up. It’s in the next stages - the knock-out stages - where we will see the differences opening up.

So sit back and wait to see how this all unfolds!

No, they'll get hammered as soon as they play a proper CL team. Sevilla should have annihilated them in the first leg. Imagine Ronaldo and Bale v Morgan and Huth <laugh>
