PAS World Cup Group Stage round up



The latest table can be found here – Neil Templeton leads the way with a very impressive 56 points considering he’s only benefitted from 3 “bonus” goals against Argentina (even i’ve earnt more points than that!). It’s close at the top though with the Top 6 all making a case to be the eventual winner and the next 5 not that far away either…


Mr 2-0 is rooted to the bottom (testament to how good this Word Cup has been me thinks!) with Gary Blackburne trying his hardest to wrestle the wooden spoon away for himself…


The table ISN’T displaying as comprehensively as we would like but to be honest it’s only because Dan can’t decipher Dave’s coding! Once Dave is back from sunning himself on a far away beach (no internet!) we’ll have it all singing & dancing as envisaged…ummmm, Dave? Dave? Dave! Please come home!


For now, if you can’t remember what team you’ve got helping you along (or NOT for half of us now – damn you Spain!) click here and it will give you an idea by hovering over the flag – but even this page isn’t displaying properly…grrrr – technology eh?!


The prize money info is here btw…


So, we continue into the Last 16 – fixtures are up for you to start predicting (first game is 5pm today!).

Suffice to say my sorry performance so far has me in the sad, desperate position of predicting the opposite of what I want to happen to protect my on-going bets. Is the faint hope of a France – Belgium final really worth sacrificing a PAS Champions League spot for? Jeez, how did it get to this….


Anyway, best correct score of the tournament so far is with Julian Fernandez for his I-held-the-mouse-down-too-long-by-mistake, Japan 1 Colombia 4.

18 got France 3 Honduras 0 & eleven got Chile 3 Australia .

Seven got Japan 0 Greece 0 & 7 more got Brazil 3 Croatia 1.

Five got Bosnia 3 Iran 1, 5 more Iran 0 Nigeria 0 and four got Australia 0 Spain 3.

Will O, Shashi A & Frankie F got Colombia 3 Greece 0.

Simon Linds & Reda A got USA 2 Portugal 2 (boo!), Paul V & Reda A (again!) got Argentina 3 Nigeria 2 and Steve T & Shashi A (again!) got Cameroon 1 Brazil 4.

Jamie Sellers got Honduras 0 Switzerland 3 and Mark J Brown got Croatia 1 Mexico 3.


Next round up will be with you on Wednesday!



PAS World Cup Group Stage Match 2 update


Still got ghosts in the machine so here’s another “unofficial” (but a bit more official) update on league standings after Sunday night’s thoroughly miserable 11 o’clock kick off…

Richard Hirst is leading the way – yep, he’s got free-scoring France to thank!

Neil Templeton continues his multi-competition World Cup success here taking 2nd spot – the *true* leader if you took away any bonus points!

Tony Morris & Steve Meaton are revelling in South Korea & Aussie goals against and Scott Harrison is getting a real run for his money courtesy of Costa Rica!

From there on in it’s pretty tight (Mark J Brown sitting on the CL qualification cut off spot) with poor ol’ Mr 2-0 rock bottom with no correct scores to date. Ha!

I promise an official fully comp league table at the end of the week (actually it’ll be my pressie to you on my birthday!) and the “Last 16” fixtures too!




PAS World Cup update


Good eh?!! (bar England of course – see what happens when Theo shows his Lewis-Hamilton-like-boat on our pages!!!)

We’re having a few “technical problems” re: the latest league standings (read – Dave’s on a beach & Dan is trying to decipher his coding…) so bear with us campers, worst case scenario is you’ll have to wait til the end of the Group Stages for the first table (unofficial calculations had Neil Templeton blazing a trail at the end of June 17th matches on around 29 points so if you’re struggling on the “teens” like me, you’ll need a good few correct scores to play catch up! Naturally, the “Curse of Pab” has taken care of Spain so I can kiss goodbye to any significant bonus points…)

The prize money can be viewed here – please note £100 has been spirited away to the PAS Champions League 2014/15 pot so there’s even more reason to make sure you finish in the Top 32!

Oh, and we had a few bods (well, my bruvver) being “timed out” on their mobile devices when trying to submit scores. Our advise is DO NOT leave it til literally the deadline as the server clock here may not be in sync with your PC/tablet/phone’s clock and you could miss out! If you give yourself at least 5 minutes before the deadline that will still give you time to view the line-ups etc before committing your predictions…

Now, if I put USA 2 Portugal 1 surely that will mean progression is then a certainty for the Selecao…



PAS World Cup draw & kick off reminder


We’re ready to go! All entry fees are in (thank you!) and the draw has been made for those team goals to earn you points along with the “anti” teams whose goals conceded will do the same job (see below and here for, ahem, the slick “live feed”…)

James C is our lone entrant who braves it all alone with just his predictions to earn him points…hats off sir!

We kick off on Thursday at 9pm so make sure you get your score for that one in on time (don’t leave it til the last minute as the score doors slam shut at 20.59!)

There will be daily reminders (like you need them!) and regular league table updates.

Oh, and don’t forget to vote on who you think will win the World Cup!
