    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 ...

    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!
