tgv...I think there is a problem with the Bosnian game this week. According to soccerway these are the games being played on saturday 21 April for the Bosnian League:

Slavija vs Jedinstvo
Modrica vs Siroki Brijeg

Can you find an alternative one?


By the way, the Stockholm derby, AIK vs Hammarby, will only be played on Tuesday 24 April

Some statistics and just to have an idea where your opponent is in the overall standings

Amazing that some of you guys didn't participate in all rounds and are still here

Barca King - MetinK5
both on 14th place ( MetinK5 didn't play 2 rounds and Barca King one round )

ViRiPiDES - Runes Order
5th against 2nd ( ViRiPiDES played one round less )

Angle_eyes - Bosanac
21th against 12th ( Angle_eyes played one round less )

Filipe Reis - Custard Slice
1st against 3th

So if you think logically who will be through it will be MetinK5 and Filipe Reis in my opinion...
Filipe because he has a 4 points lead to Custard Slice in the standings and MetinK5 because he played a round less then Barca King.

Angle_eyes and Bosanac are really worthy opponents with Angle_eyes who is, with one round less, just 4 points behind Bosanac.

ViRiPiDES and Runes Order are worthy to eachother as well because there's a 5 point gab in the standings with one round difference again.

Pity that 4 from the top 5 play eachother already, great for the competition though

There's one player from group A, 3 from B , 1 from C and 2 for D.

Just two quarterfinalists played eachother again in the group stages,
ViRiPiDES and Runes Order which ended in a win for myself.

Everyone scored a lot of goals in the group stages :

Custard Slice 83
Filipe Reis 82
ViRiPiDES 80
Runes Order 76
MetinK5 73 (played 14/15)
Barca King 69 (played 14/15)
Bosanac 69
Angle_eyes 62 (played 13/15)

So now we're almost ready for the semis we can say that group B was the most difficult group.

For Bosanac this must be great, he wasn't qualified for the last 32 but is still here ( what you call an outsider )

Anyway, this shows that I'm bored in my vacation on a thursdaymorning :rollani: and remember statistics doesn't count, everything is showing on the field with a lot of luck in these stages....p

Good luck to everyone !! and to the ones who still predict for the overall standings !!

Nice post Runes Order

I knew I was the lowest ranked player in the quarters. I've only been doing as little as possible to qualify p

Interesting post Runes Order!

It's good to see posts like this, as it's been quiet in here since "ac foreva" and Marvin got knocked out! (In foreva's case maybe that's a good thing!p)

Not that it's worth anything, but my opinion for the four semi-finalists is this: MetinK5 looks almost through with a 4-1 lead, it will be hard for Barca King to overturn.

His opponent for semi is too close to call, but you have to slightly favour Runes Order who has a 5-4 lead from the 1st leg. Plus Viripides is Madridista which must be a disadvantage when making decisions about which teams to choose!p

Angle_eyes vs. Bosanac is 50/50% IMO, and could be decided by a tiebreaker!
Sure, Angle has a 4-3 advantage from the 1st leg, but Bosanac would go through on a tie-breaker if a draw on aggregate, as he scored more points in group stage, so I won't tip anyone here!:undecide:

Finally, I gotta go for Filipe Reis to complete the semi final line-up.
There is a saying "the cream always rises to the top", and Filipe is not first in the overall standings for nothing!
Although 1-2 down at half-time, I'm sure a return to the form that got him the number one position is likely this week!

So there you have it, Custard's view of things, just a bit of fun to pass the time.
We'll see what happens for real this weekend, and Good luck to all the guys in the competition!

to be honest, I for myself say, I got murdered in the 1st round, and a 1-4 score is not doing me justic, I for once didn't get any luck nor good prediction for such crucial round.

still I'm glad I reached such place from my 1st, even I was almost out not so far ago, and over commed a lot of things.

if I go out this week, it will be something to remember for next season, but if I for somehow did a Barcelona Vs Chelsea in the CL not so long ago, and I mean the 5-1 in Camp Nou, or a Liverpool in UCL05 Final, I would be for sure going for the title.

good luck guys, thank tgv325, and it was a pleasure playing with you, and enjoying such great game :thmbup:

I am humbled by your words :embarass:

No matter what happens I have been happy to participate in this PL as this must be the nicest group of people in XT.

Some Results:

Legia Warsaw 3 - 0 Korona Kielce
Bolton Wanders 1 -3 Reading
Vfb Stuttgart 2 - 0 Bayern Munich
Paris St.Germain 4 -0 Nantes

Some surprises again this week, who'd have thought Reading and Stuttgart would have won! Together with Drogheda winning away at Shamrock Rovers last night it's looking like another low scoring week! (For me, at least!)

I'm not sure, but it seems I had missed prediction for some games in this round!

I'm not so sure.

god knows I'm feeling so damn bad to go out like this!

better luck next time
