Don't trust me, I don't care. You're the one missing out on free money.

I've been here for 5 years. What would I even do with your e-mail?

Clock Cleaner; I'll just post my bracket on here. Maybe people will agree or disagree but here goes nothing.

(Ranked from First to Last per group)

Group A
ES
Laos
Columbia
Northern Ireland
Austria
Sudan
Note: ES/Laos game on 16th will determine 1st place.

Group B
Rep. Of Ireland
Norway
Portugal
Serbia
Sierra Leone
England
Note: Norway makes it out of this group. Wish they wouldn't but not much competition to withhold their tickets being stamped to the next round.

Group C
France
Nigeria
Bowstwana
Italy
Greece
Afghanistan
Note: Nigera is the Dark Horse of contenders to have a shot at making it deep. Easy group for Nigeria to find form. The much hyped self professed Greece team will get a win in this year.

Group D
Canada
Jamaica
Germany
Poland
Ukraine
Scotland
Note: Canada squeezes by Jamaica. Jamaica finally makes it to knock out soccer. Germany doesn't qualify. Poland stumbles in should have won matches.

Quarters
ES vs Nigeria
Winner: ES
-Highly contested game. ES win 4-2

ROI vs Jamaica
Winner: ROI
- Jamaica plays defensively and withhold ROI for the first half. ROI 3-1.

France vs Laos
Winner: Laos
- Game goes the distant into PK's. 2-2 (3-2 Laos)

Canada vs Norway
Winner: Canada
- Norway put up a fight, yet Canada get a few bounces to go their way. 2-1 Canada.

Semi Finals
ES Vs Canada
Winner: ES
- ES keep to good times rolling. Canada take an early lead; yet ES manages to score a few before the half. 3-2 ES.

Laos vs ROI
Winner: ROI
- Laos is out matched by ROI physicality. ROI scores 2 goals early and has Laos chasing the whole game. ROI 2-1.

Final
ROI vs ES
Winner: ES

Note: ROI no longer have Shae O'Hare who scored a lethal full field world cup final goal in 2009 to defeat ES in OT, that could be the difference maker! As for ES being weaker this year... we'll see how ES managed to re-stock their losses. 3-2 OT ES.

Good Lord is it hard to rank the top 4 in Group D!

i think julio has group D right but as for his bias predecictions after group stages you cant take any of it seriously,

are there any exhibition games this week or during the week? anyone no? pls post them up

Nigeria vs. Norway @ 2pm tomorrow

Julio said...

Obviously I have to believe that ES will go all the way, as why would I want to participate in the tournament if I don't have a belief that I can win it all?

You may not agree with the ES selections but I stand by my team, and I am pretty sure that anyone else that feels they have a competitive squad would do the same.

I really think Nigeria will be a dark horse that could turn some heads. Jamaica has the potential to see knock out soccer as Poland will falter and the German physicality won't be enough to get past Canada or Jamaica putting them in third.
Norway has an easy pool and should pass with ROI who right now I view as biggest threat to win a competition.

Yet I never said I was correct, I put that out there and we'll see what happens... maybe I am not even close at all...

Hey Cleaner, what's your name? I'm not sending shit to someone I don't even know. Sounds like a big scam. Dude, you need to actually tell people where to send this stuff and stop being anonymous. It's not good to tell people they will be winning money on some bracket where they have no idea who you are and how credible you are.

Clock Cleaner said...

If you don't trust me, don't submit a bracket. It's pretty simple. How is it a scam? You pay nothing.

To everyone who has sent their brackets in already, thank you. I'll be taking submissions up until April 2nd. Then the list will be posted.
