Ok let's try a little something, inspired by Fantasy Baseball....

....thankfully, we all have different opinions, this will provide a format/log & give rise to a way to resolve divergent opinion.... enabling us to rub our cohorts noses in it/gloat/make excuses....

....there is even to prospect of consequences and/or points +1 = right, -1 = wrong

Anyone can post a realistic** 'disagreement' and pitch an over/under (see first example below) if you believe the benchmark will be bettered you buy, if the challenge will fall below, you sell....

....you have an opportunity to nail your colours to the mast, publicly commit to a p.o.v. ....and basically PUT UP OR SHUT UP*

PLUS we get a catchphrase PUT IT ON THE BOARD



*Persistent losers are not allowed an opinion
**Owen will start 30 games.... SELL :nono:

....and don't make them all about United

I'll start.....

Buy.... i think England's group is far weaker than Netherlands (Germany & Portugal) & even if they both get out of the group, England are on the weaker side of the draw

So I quote and say.

Buy - I think if fit he'll start. Fergie isn't going to keep using Smalling and Jones out of position. Jones is as much a headless chicken as Rafael and doesn't offer as much going forward. Rafael has a great understanding with Valencia.

Sell

England are without Rooney for the first 2 group games, and have a tough group to overcome, plus a new manager trying to find his feet.


Nothing to see here :ninja:

You know what Paks like. He's probably voted JSP for woman of the year or something.

Buy - I think as the season has gone on he's looked sharper his confidence is returning and Chelsea are beginning to play more in a way that suits him. The signing of Marin is one that will help him too and Drogba will play less and less games if he stays.

Don't think England will make it out of the group expect Holland to finish second behind Germany.

Can we counter-Sell?

I think Holland will make it further than England but don't think they'll get as far as the final.

Podolski will get 15 goals & assists combined in the league next year.


RJ EDIT: Can't say will score 15+.... make a definitive statement & punters fall either side of the fence

Podolski will get 15 combined goals & assists.... over(buy), under(sell)

:stop: :nono: ..... the deal on the table is HE WILL PLAY 19 GAMES

....more (buy) or less (sell)..... none of this 'if fit' mullarkey (or 'assuming he's playing well' or 'assuming United don't buy Kyle Walker')

:wink: 19 games yay or nay

I think Holland will make it further than England but don't think they'll get as far as the final.

nope it's a simple 2 horse race pitched right on your perceived tipping point.... you simply sell the pitch i.e. selling = wrong & Netherlands will go farther

England go farther than Netherlands.....

i am 'buying' that & agree
i am 'selling' that & disagreeing


Rafael will start 19 games

I am 'buying' that & think he'll start 20+
I am 'selling' that & think he'll start 18 or less
Starts 19 & we get a stalemate
