Premier Showdown - Dec 26

December 26, 2012

A correct scoreline at Upton Park proved to be crucial for Latoya Woolery as the points went to the Rest of the World in our last round before Christmas - and that left champion Dale Johnson at the bottom off the table!

Looking to fight his way to victory on Boxing Day is Michael O'Carroll who lives in Auckland, New Zealand.

Michael says: "I have supported Manchester United for, well, 50 years, serving in the Royal New Zealand Navy. I retire in May 2013 and I'm then heading home to Manchester for a holiday and to see my family for the first time in 16 years."

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.

Michael sneaks in ahead of Tommy to take the points, but it was yet another dismal display from Dale.
