Premier Showdown - Dec 29-30
Michael O'Carroll sneaked in ahead of Tommy Smyth to take the points on Boxing Day, but it was yet another dismal display from our champioin, Dale Johnson. Surely he has to get his game in order?
Joining us for the final round of 2012 is Peter W. Eisenhammer from Perth in Australia.
Peter say: "
Hi Dale and Tommy, I'm from Perth, Australia where there are lots of English ex-pats, all of whom seem to follow Man United... I have a little soft spot for Everton, I am in awe of David Moyes, it's a miracle how he has that club so together! Let's play!"
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.
Tommy edges to victory in a low scoring round. And Dale is last again.
