Premier Showdown - Jan 22-24
Dale Johnson opened up a gap at the top of the table last weekend, so there's more work to do for Tommy Smyth and the Rest of the World team before we head into the FA Cup break.
Looking for success for the final time in January is Christian Nicholson.
It's the United States for Showdown this week, and we're going to head to Kissimmee, Florida to link up with Christian.
He says: "I am an exiled Geordie living in Kissimmee, Florida for three years. I can't live without ESPN. I travel around the world looking for new food for chefs and wherever I am I tune in from my IPAD or Blackberry to find out the latest news. I always coincide my visits back to the UK with a Newcastle United game, it's in the blood."
Let's check out those predictions.
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.
No correct scoreline for Tommy, so the ROTW take the points. Could they really get back into it?
Table after Round 24
Rest of the World: 16.5
Best week's total of season so far: 13, Bob McFarland.
So do you think you can beat the best of the best? Now is your chance to find out!
