The Pie & Bovril Dead Pool 2019

Recommended Posts

Team submitted. Took my squad from last year, removed those who have "retired" from duty and changed a couple round based on seeing them recently with enough colour in their cheeks to see them through til the 2020 Dead Pool.

Team was submitted this morning. Keep a good few from 2018 in there just to keep some consistency. No idea what score I'm trying to beat as Spain has went AWOL from 2018 so we'll never know how much points Dynamite Kid was worth.

Not convinced all of mine would get a qualifying obit either but I've taken that risk.

This takes me back to 2014, when I was runner-up. (Have I mentioned that already?) Sammy Conn, an acquaintance of all diddy-team supporters, was one of my squad. The then adjudicator (Fuctifano, iirc) found an acceptable obit for me.

Team sent. Hard to believe I'll do as badly as this year, with three of that team already aged over 100 at the start of the year and yet still eligible for 2019. 

The secret to life? Get me to put you in my Dead Pool team.  On recent evidence, you're between 87 and 93 per cent certain to make it through another year.

Mine went in today. Not sure I'll be able to beat 2018's success of 4 hits including a Vice Captain but here's hoping. Most of the folks on my team would improve the planet by shuffling off so looking forward to the carnage ahead.

Not gonna lie boys, mild feelings of regret since the 40 entries we were at last night have doubled in the past 24 hours. I'm half-cut and we still have 160 minutes for submissions to come in, so f**k knows when lists and preparations will be finalised.

I see Jimmy Osmond has had a stroke. Still time for last minute amendments.

I'm ashamed of my lack of proper research this year. Submitted a list with my rationale for my replacements being, "midgets die young"

A subtle blend of seasoned vets and young hopefuls sent in, more faith in some of the newbs to be honest, the old hands have previous for failure.

5 dead from my team in 2017

5 dead from my team in 2018 - good strike rate (better than an Accies striker)

 

2019 squad being finalised.
