Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Brasil 2014 Predictions Game - Semi-final Update

We couldn't have had two more different semi-final matches, could we. One eight-goal shocker followed by a 0-0 snoozer ended with the damp squib of penalty misses by the Dutch. The results have turned our predictions game upside down. Very few of us predicted that Brazil would be slaughtered the way that we did, so only Chelskilad and Simon got the full 12 points for predicting a Germany v. Argentina final. That leaves us with a two horse with the original Lakenheath Old Boy Chelskilad and his younger brother UWS tied on 70 points. As fortune would have it, both have predicted a German win, so it will come down to the supplementary points for winning goal, Golden Boot and MVP as the tie-breaker. Here are the current standings:

1. Chelskilad - 70 points
- United We Stand - 70 pts
3. The Red Devil FCK1 - 60 pts
4. Man Utd Rules - 59 pts
5. Blue Devil - 57 pts
6. Gooner71 - 56 pts
7. West Ham Rising - 54 pts
8. What's Up Wheaton Simon - 52 pts
9. Swansong - 51 pts
- Yellows - 51 pts
11. Matt - 50 pts
12. AZ Kicker - 48 pts
13. Someone Said - 42 pts
14. The Red Dragon - 36 pts

I'd like to also add that I actually didn't do the same category as the rest of you. I didn't pick the winning goal of the final but I picked the FIRST goal of the final. So, if DiMaria, if he's fit, scores the winner of the Final I won't get points but if he scores the first than I do

Seriously, I prefer the idea of the current trophy every two years.
