that's because he picked a load of Man Utd players 😬
@Ericali all green in the final yet not to be. How did you do again?
You handed me my ass in the quarter's.... 🤣
*2nd Round Eric. You're thinking of Man Utd in the Champions League 🙂
The final is definitely verified as the top two in Europe. This isn't no 2019 Champions League final!! (Let's just send that bait out there ahaha)
3rd/4th may be underwhelming but it's really close! Fantastic stiff gentlemen, all 4 of ya

All it takes is "Sky Sports News Sources say Julian Draxler is headed to Old Trafford" and this is turned on its head!
This has been class! Although I fell at the first hurdle,been following it all the way! Credit to the finalists! Even bigger credit to @Advinculas-Index for all the work and effort keeping it going! @Misto aswell for his massive input! 👍👍
@Lukeroro add in a Maddison new contract and a Richarlison metatarsal and I'm there! 😂

I think rashford might have got me bronze!!!
First of all i would like to thank you all for taking part in the 2019 FIFA World Cup, it been fun to organise and host.
All thats left for me to say is congratulations to @Keegans-Bluff on winning the tournement in what was up until 2 days ago a hotly contested finale.
@Hotspur wins the runners up prize with @Ringers benefiting from a Rashford surge this morning to take 3rd place.
Brilliant competition thank you @Advinculas-Index for the excellent organisation and regular updates.
I see myself as a long-term investor so never expected to get past the first round given we had to predict increases over such a short timeframe. Delighted that I stayed in until the end, even if I did just miss out on a prize.
Unlucky @Hotspur you've done great throughout, and it was very close until I managed to put a bit of daylight between us last few days. Well done on some very impressive results. Well done to @Ringers on third, and commiserations to @Coleyscrooge for just missing out. As an England fan, know how this feels.
Thanks to all for taking part - think it's been a really enjoyable part of being in the Forum, and I know it's certainly helped me hone my instincts on the Index over the course of the four months too.
Big ups to you @Advinculas-Index for putting it all together, and running it so well. Fantastic effort, really appreciated - I'd have you over Blatter or Infantilo any day of the week.
And also thanks to the very generous @Misto - another pillar of the forum - for donating the prizes. After some thought, I'm going to have to go for Sir Geoff's shirt. Cheers!
Well played @Keegans-Bluff, a deserved winner and some great picks through the tournament. Big respect to @Advinculas-Index for the time and effort put into hosting, thank you for putting in the time and effort.
A great example of how good this forum can be at times and if you decide to run it again then count me in!
Congratulations to the winners.
I'll do a longer post tomorrow. I want to look at what the returns would have been if you followed @Keegans-Bluff and @Hotspur tips from the first round. I'll look at say 10 share of each player and £100 of each player. Ill work out the best way tomorrow.
Thanks to @Advinculas-Index been really fun watching this thread and great for banter.
I'll be getting packing for the prizes tomorrow and plan to post by Wednesday. I'll PM the winners to sort everything out from my end.
