    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that he was actually being pessimistic.....

However, you simply answered "final" rather than "beaten finalists" or "winner." So, I will take your answer as beaten finalists, so you won't get the points if England win. However, this does leave you with an interesting choice. Since the bonus question 4 so eloquently alludes to England's fate, you could either guarantee yourself a bonus by answering yes, or you could go double or nothing by saying we'll balls it up. That said, I nearly decided to give you the points anyway, for being more optimistic than any of us England fans!
      Thanks Freeman. And whilst I'm one of the few Irishmen hoping England win it, I do have to be honest and and confirm my prediction of "Final" was indeed with a meaning of beaten finalists! So I do agree I should only get the points if England lose! It will make my Bonus 4 pick all the more interesting.... :-)

        Ha, sorry Shee, I did you a disservice there!

                Sunday 11th July 2021

                Italy 0-0 England

                BONUS 1: Name a player who will register an assist in this round. Insigne

                BONUS 2: Who will be man of the match in the final? (according to whoscored.com) Chiesa

                BONUS 3: Which player will score the final goal in Euro 2020? (for clarification, extra time does count, but penalty shootouts do not) Chiesa


                BONUS 4: Is it fucking come lads? I wouldn't have framed it like this because I think this team are really different so it's not just the old 'England' tag, but since you asked for it.... No, it's England, you silly soppy cunt

                  Not to pre-empt it.... but I think I may have it? Me with 2+5, then Shee with his double-down, then Freeman with six points for getting 1-1?

                  No offence, but I'd rather have been wrong on the prediction that made sure and have us win the Euros, mind.

                    FINAL UPDATE

                    Football came Rome in the end, and so wraps up what has been a very enjoyable and entertaining tournament. That also wraps up the final round and the Euro 2020 Prediction Contest here too (obviously.)

                    Prime Time was player of the round, predicting the correct result, if not the correct score. That didn't matter though, because he nailed the bonus about England not bringing it home this time round. As for your other Round 4 bonuses, Trippier was the only player to notch up an assist, and Bonucci was both your man of the match and the final goalscorer.

                    OUTSTANDING BONUSES

                    There were a couple of bonuses to call in from the pre tournament questions. Prime Time correctly predicted Ronaldo as the golden boot winner, and Shee correctly predicted England would be beaten finalists. As for the other bonuses, Italy were obviously winners, Donnarumma was player of the tournament and Pedri was young player of the tournament, which no one guessed correctly.

                    All that said, there can only be one winner, and that man is...


                    PRIME TIME!


                    Like the Italians, the best man won. Your Premier League Predictions contest organiser was overall best player and best match predictor, and deserved winner. Congratulations sir. Shee is a worthy runner up, I finished third and Ollie finished fourth. Spare a thought for Gooner in fifth place, with a score of 41 in match predictions alone, but was let down by bonus questions. Cook, nonaldinho, Mazza and Sheep round off the rest of the table. Speaking of which, here's the final standings:




                    SCORES ON THE DOORS

                    As with all previous rounds, here is a breakdown of your final round scores:




                    Well, that's it from me gents. Thanks to all of you for playing, I had an absolute blast organising this thing, and I hope we get to do this again. Freeman out!

                      Thanks for organising Freeman! I seem to remember I always do bad at the bonuses, might need to start being sneaky and copy somebody elses from now on!
