    Bar the Bull's World Cup Comp

    Okay ladies, so I am running a football competition for the 2014 World Cup. There will be fun and frolics. And excitement and tears. For those of you who have entered previous competitions, the rules are very similar; for the others, I will explain.

    You must select 6 teams from the list below. Points will be awarded based on a combination of each team’s rating and how far they progress in the tournament. Points for progress are allocated as follows:

    Last in group 0
    3rd in group 5
    Eliminated in 2nd round 15
    Eliminated in Quarter final 30
    Loser of 3rd place playoff 45
    Winner of 3rd place playoff 55
    Losing finalist 70
    Winner 100

    Weightings of the teams are as follows:

    Brazil 2
    Argentina 2
    Germany 2.5
    Spain 2.5
    Belgium 3.5
    France 4
    Colombia 4
    Italy 4
    Uruguay 4.5
    Portugal 5
    Holland 5
    England 5
    Russia 6
    Switzerland 7
    Chile 7
    Bosnia 8
    Ecuador 8
    Mexico 8
    Ivory Coast 8
    Croatia 9
    Japan 9
    Nigeria 10
    South Korea 12
    Greece 13
    Ghana 13
    USA 13
    Cameroon 22
    Algeria 28
    Iran 30
    Honduras 32
    Australia 40
    Costa Rica 50

    So say you pick England. When they get knocked out on penalties in the quarter finals after a misjudged Gerrard Panenka, You will be awarded 30 * 5 = 150 points.
    Say you pick Argentina. And say they finish 4th. You will be awarded 2 * 45 = 90 points.
    And if you pick Costa Rica, and they manage to sneak 3rd in their group ahead of the overhyped Uruguayans, you will be rewarded with 5 * 50 = 250 points.

    Entries must be posted here by 5 o’clock on the opening day the World Cup. Tell your friends, tell your family.

    Prize will be:
    €100 (or £80) for 1st
    €50 (or £40) for 2nd
    €25 (or £20) for 3rd

    If Suarez is out will you be adjusting Uruguay's weight or is it set in stone?

    Fantastic compo, is this the third time?

    No adjustments.

    I did this in 2006, so this is the third world cup. I have also done two European Championships.

    Very similar to Schweinsteiger.

    Very appreciative, Bar. Looking forward to spending a few hours selecting my teams.

    I'm busy at the moment looking at PP top scorer offer (£5 free bet for every goal). My first inclination is towards Costa and Messi!

    Do the administrators mind if I put an advert in the main racing section for this competition?
