Premier Showdown - Feb 11-12
Tommy Smyth continued his good run last weekend, and he edges ever closer to the top of the table in the hope of retaining his crown.
The Rest of the World are in desperate need of a victory, and this week the responsibility lies with Gerald Dobbs from Cork in Ireland.
Gerald tells us: "
I'm 41 years old and support Chelsea. I'm originally from London but now living in Cork. I used to play a little but now concentrate on coaching mid-teen lads that little bit extra to push them to their goals in soccer."
Play! Play! Play!
For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on Press Pass' Tommy Smyth and ESPNsoccernet 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.
We said Dale was out of it yesterday, which means we will be heading back to school as he claimed two correct results to earn a draw with Tommy.
Table after Round 25
Rest of the World: 27
Best week's total of season: 13, Dale Johnson
Final table 2010-11
Rest of the World: 22.5
Best week's total of season: 13, Tommy Smyth (from eight fixtures).
So do you think you can beat the best of the best? Now is your chance to find out!
