The All New No-Aussie P+B Quiz League and ☕ Occasional Cup ☕

Recommended Posts

I'll have to disagree with the docking points for not posting on the day. Not everyone can log in every day ... folk like AK above are usually more regular but folk lead busy lives. But I'll make you a deal, when they start docking points off Celtic for playing glamour friendlies and delaying league games, then I'll  start doing the same here :)

Anyway, I'm out for the rest of the day, so if you've not got your results in, take it to the Internet Ombudsman. 

In the Premiership, they'll be dancing on the streets of wherever Scotfree lives as he takes his 4th crown. Only 1 point behind is Peasy23 - whose boyhood dream of lifting the P+B League Trophy will have to wait another season. Down below, Alang1993 and Ross go down like a cup of cold sick, while Tynieness is in the play-offs. And who could his opponent be?

In the SWL, they'll be dancing in the cloisters of Michigan State University as MSU gains back-to-back promotions (presumably his toys are back in the pram now as well) ... German Jag is still searching for his first piece of silverware but gets promotion, edging out lil' ol' me into the play-offs. But that's fine and dandy by me cos it means I get to demolish Tynieness in the play-off. 

Down below, Kincardine is presumably enjoying week long celebrations for the 12th July ... Captain slips down into the dungeon league and Ziggy is in the play-offs.

And in the BHL, they'll be dancing on the streets of Baku (had  a quick look at the map to see other place names nearby ... the first two I saw were Ganja and Mingecevir) .. CaspianChris begins his march up the league and his first piece of bronzeware.  Gkneil joins him in the middle league and it's another team with an empty trophy cabinet - wastecoatwilly - in the play-offs.

So to the play-offs ... and tagging doesn't seem to work. Sort it out @div

  • For the Premiership spot, it's the battle of the Mods ... @Cardinal Richelieu vs @tynieness
  • And for the SWL spot, it's the battle of the Plebs ... @ziggy vs @wastecoatwilly

Since SlipperyP is waylaid and I'm in the play-offs, does somebody mind posting a play-off question for the 4 of us?

I’ll assist, as it’s the 3rd/4th place play off in that other World Cup today, the question is simple...who has finished 4th the most times? Bonus points available for the year/s they have come 4th.

Many thanks to NJ2 but before I submit my guess (haven't a clue btw) how do you determine a winner if both teams are wrong?

Draw straws...

Both relegated. Will go with who’s closest geographically to the correct team. Be good if one from each tie just got it right though.

Why not go with how many times their guess has come 4th? If that’s also a tie then we should go with the widely used tradition of reverse alphabetical order.

Because I didn’t think of that...I’ll announce a result and show my working as to who wins the playoff when I have all the answers

Hold the fucking fort here. NJ2 has informed me my guess was wrong, but since it was next door to the correct answer, I'm not having any last minute shenanigans.

I’LL DECIDE. I may have gone mad with power.
Anyway, forget this playoff pish. It’s QWC2018 Final day! The result will be announced 12:00 (or there about)

Right, so the apparently highly controversial playoff question was who has finished 4th at the World Cup most often.
The Prem playoff seen the leader Cardi take on recently rebranded Tynierose (same club?).
The cardinal went with Brazil in 1962 (which I suspect was a guess and haven’t bothered to check if it’s right) and 2014.
Tynie went with England in 1990 and 2018.

The SWL playoff was between Ziggy and Wastecoatwilly.
Ziggy also went with Brazil and covered his bases with guessing every World Cup ever, even the ones they won.
Wastecoatwilly plumped for Germany and didn’t bother guessing years for bonus points such was confidence, I assume.
The correct answer, of course, was Uruguay. Coming 4th on three occasions - 1954, 1970 & 2010.
So Cardi and Ziggy get the nod based on being geographically closest to the correct answer. Thems the breaks.

I hate to be pedantic but Brazil won it in 62.

My team were 4th twice, the Cardinal's only one.

Normally I  wouldn't bother but I hate @Cardinal Richelieu

Anyway, enough of the mundane league shite, it’s time...THE QWC2018 FINAL!
I think on the whole it’s been better than that carry on in Russia. The final was between AFJ’s charges Ellan Vannin and Salvo’s Poland. Both a credit to themselves and their countries.
The final of course was out of 20 and both teams had very strong performances. In the end there was only one goal separating the sides and not many chances missed.
ELLAN VANNIN 19 v 18 Poland.
AFJ is the champion. Ellan Vannin are QWC2018 winners. A joyous day for the self governing whatever they are actually are. Well done and thanks to all. I’m off to lie down in a dark room, see you in 4 years.

I would normally be up for a SUPERLEAGUE. But:

  1. SUPERLEAGUE must be capitalised
  2. I just ground t̶y̶n̶i̶e̶n̶e̶s̶s̶'̶s̶  tynieroses' stupid face into the dirt.
