Premier Showdown - Dec 17-18
The points were shared between Dale Johnson and the Rest of the World team last week, and it was a woefully low-scoring side. We're expecting more from our players this week.
So who is going to take on Dale and Tommy Smyth this weekend? Why it's only Umesh Patel who is from Atlanta in the United States! Umesh is a big Showdown fan.
He says: "It was a great start to the season for the ROTW against Dale and Tommy, but Dale now is gaining momentum.
"I am a big Man Utd. fan so as you can imagine the season was going great until THAT weekend and the dodgy looking midfield that we seem to have inherited. Anyway let's hope we end up on top at the end of the season."
Let's see how our players get on.
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.
Dale storms to victory with four correct scorelines to match the season's high score of 13.
Table after Round 16
Rest of the World: 24
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!
