Filling up quick! Surprised Wincho's post didn't mention boobs.


I've had to remove the 3rd place prize, as I've just realised there is no 3rd place play off in the Euro's... Added 'First defender to score a goal in open play - £10' unless anyone can think of anything better?

Some grudge. I'd have thought you had lots of practice being dissed by girls?





Pompey was pulling the strings, so I suppose I don't hold her fully accountable.


Anyway, shut up you priiiiicccck.

Sounds good pomps, how do you decide if a player is a defender? EG Emre Can has played CB or CDM for Liverpool and Germany.


An alternative could be "first penalty scored"?


Yeah, that's a bit of a problem! Might have to re-think that one. 


First penalty scored is already in there. 


How about... First goal given using goal line technology. Or first goal to hit the woodwork and go in. 


Alternatively, first match to have a streaker.

Right I've changed the 3rd place prize to 'first team to win a penalty shootout'. As that should mean there's still a few prizes knocking around after the group stages. 


I've sent people details of how to pay, thanks to those who have sent money already. Please don't delay on payment as I'm sure this will fill up fast and I need to do the draw before Friday. 


Only 8 spaces left.
