Premier Showdown - Nov 17-19

November 19, 2012

Dale Johnson stormed to victory, getting more points than Tommy Smyth and our Rest of the World player combined. Now he's breathing right down Tommy's neck at the top of the table. What a turnaround!

Joining us in the special Premier Showdown bunker this weekend is Peter Hartz who lives just over the English Channel in Grenoble, France.

Peter says: "I am a 21-year-old language student from New York, currently working on my French in Grenoble. I had the opportunity to attend my first Premier League match this year (Man City at Fulham), what an experience! I really connected with Craven Cottage, I think I am starting to develop a fondness for the squad (even though they lost my American comrade Clint Dempsey).

"At the weekend I spend all my time in the pub enjoying the Premier League, a nice escape from everyday French life."

Game on!

For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on Press Pass' Tommy Smyth and ESPN journalist Dale Johnson in our predictions game.

Points are then awarded as follows:
• Three points for a correct result and scoreline
• One point for a correct result

After the weekend's scores are in and the Showdown result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the Rest of the World tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.

Peter bags a correct scoreline at Upton Park to surge ahead of Dale and take the points. It's getting tight!
